…… A Little Bit About me
Congratulations, you are one step closer to your BIG day. This is an exciting time indeed, and I would be honoured to be a part of your celebration.
I have been licensed to officiate weddings in the Province of Ontario for the past 26 years and I look forward to serving you as you prepare to embark on the next chapter of life together!
Your ceremony is an important part of your wedding day and sets the tone for your entire celebration.
I welcome the opportunity of meeting you to discuss how I can help reduce the stress of creating a ceremony that’s unique to you, reflecting your personalities, passions and values; all while remaining relaxed and having FUN. Let’s make your Special Day unique and memorable – for all the right reasons!
I was born and raised in Gander, NL, However, I’ve made Ontario my home for the past 30+ years and YES, I am a Toronto Maple Leaf fan!!
I have been Married for 27 years, and we’re loving life together. We have 2 awesome, grown children.
My Life Experiences
For the past 20+ years I’ve served different churches in Ontario, with a few years as the Operational Manager for a local business. I also love to volunteer in our great city of Barrie as the Chaplain of the Barrie Police Service.
I love most sports, but avidly watch the Jays and Leafs. In recent years, I’ve fallen in love with squash again, and play when I can, with a little golf thrown in during the summer.
Love hanging out with friends, especially when and where food and laughter is a part of the agenda!
I also love to go sledding when the conditions are perfect.
My wife and i love to travel, when the budget allows!
I like to laugh and love meeting people and making their wedding day as memorable as possible !
What couples say about Craig…
I am so happy that Craig officiated my wedding. It was an intimate affair, but he made it feel like the most wonderful celebration ever. He allowed us to add personal touches that were very important to us and was very helpful and cooperative. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Or maybe I should say 2 heartbeats 😉
Our daughter wanted only Craig to officiate at her wedding, which was contrastingly (to ours) a huge and glamorous affair, albeit in 33-degree temperatures! Craig was wonderful; appropriately funny, making everyone comfortable. I wouldn’t use anyone else.
John & Christy
Thank you so much for doing our ceremony. We planned 18 months in advance, and we were grateful for his advise/counsel. He really took charge of the ceremony giving directions and advice. I liked that he was so relaxed and comfortable with the music. The weather was not good (mid October) but we did not notice, because he really turned all the focus to us and the ceremony.
Sam & Jennifer
We would like to thank Craig for officiating our wedding ceremony this past June 23rd2018. Craig was extremely professional throughout the entire process. Even though we had some timing and location issues on our wedding day, Craig met them calmly and confidently. Due to Craig’s leadership, he was able to put us (the Bride and Groom) at ease and we enjoyed a beautiful wedding service.
We would recommend Craig to any of our family or friends for their wedding services. His participation in our wedding was a blessing and will always be fondly remembered.
Andrew & Monica
Craig was an integral part of our wedding Day.
Our needs were slightly unique, but Craig left us feeling confident & excited after each meeting.
The day before a wedding is usually filled with last minute errands, jitters from excitement and plain stress. Having Craig join us for a run through was such a pleasure, and his vast experience meant that I (the bride) only had to show up and tell him who stood where. His calm and easy demeanour was truly contagious, and by the end of rehearsal, the entire party was relaxed and ready to welcome the big day.
While I was welling up with tears of joy, our guests were cracking up at the light & fun nature of our ceremony. Craig knew exactly who we were as a couple, and he made that clear with his fantastic delivery.
We have had guests rave about how wonderful it was to witness a wedding ceremony and actually be captivated throughout it.
On such a special and momentous day, you’re going to want Craig at the “head” of it all (pun fully intended). I couldn’t think of anyone more professional, and personable all at once.
