Your Occasions for @offbeatbride

We are a husband and wife team of registered Humanist Marriage Officiants in Ontario, Canada. We perform non-religious, personalized wedding ceremonies in Toronto, Peel, Halton, and Hamilton regions. Our goal is to help you write a ceremony that expresses your personalities — as unique and quirky as you are — while still recognizing the important commitment you are making.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Your wedding ceremony should be about you, the couple, and the commitment you are making. That means we celebrate what makes you the fabulous people you are and why you've chosen to get married.

We don't just put your names into a template. We get to the heart of what you want in your wedding while making sure that you have a fully legal ceremony. We start you off with lots of samples but those are merely meant to guide you. We can mix and match, mash up, or write something entirely new. We provide you with a structure, and we will help you fill it with what suits you.

"We contacted Your Occasions after having tried quite a few other officiants in Toronto. Mei was available for our weekday wedding, and was delighted with everything we threw at her, from an ax-throwing reception to a zombie-filled reading. She was a perfect match and it was a delightful composing process."
– Helen and Emerald, married 05/05/2015

Examples of my work

We cater every ceremony to the personalities of our couples. That means we have written a wide range of different ceremonies to include rituals, cultural rites, and anything else meaningful to our clients.

Our ceremonies have included readings from Shakespeare and Neil Gaiman. Song lyrics by Bob Dylan and Bryan Adams. Dog ring bearers? Dancing down the aisle? Ceremonial beer-opening? Updating Facebook relationship statuses during the ceremony? We've included all of these and much more!

We've provided ceremonies for same-sex couples, older and younger couples, inter-faith marriages, and blended families with children of all ages. We've included sand ceremonies, flower ceremonies, wine ceremonies, and handfastings. We've performed weddings at the top of waterfalls, on secluded riverbanks, on sailboats, even guerilla-style in parks. And of course we've performed weddings in homes and backyards, in restaurants, and at large wedding venues.
