Wedding Officiants

Tina Gabriel - Governing Official


As a former Citizenship Judge I had the remarkable opportunity to experience the great diversity of this country at all levels, from sumptuous multicultural festivals to small private functions. I learned that we are different, yet equal. I have been celebrating love for ten years as an Accredited Official. I  enjoy performing ceremonies that embrace our uniqueness as well as our commonalities.

Let’s get you married!

I believe that marriage is an amazing journey you take with your best friend. I would be honoured to help you personalize your wedding ceremony, renew your vows, or preform your commitment or naming ceremony.  Together we will create your special day, your way.  Big or small, non–denominational or spiritual, I am comfortable in any setting and will work with you to make your day as unique as you both are. My goal is to create a ceremony that is attentive to your ideas, needs, personal touches and that starts your life adventure as a couple in the way that reflects your values, beliefs and spirit.

Valerie Spironello


During my many years as a social worker I have had the honour and privilege of accompanying others through some of the most significant events of their lives. I hold this responsibility as sacred. As your wedding officiant, I will assist you and your beloved to make your day of commitment one that is reflective of your relationship and wishes for your future together. I believe we all have the right to marry/commit to the person with whom we choose to spend our life and to have this commitment witnessed and supported by community. It is my intention to serve as a witness to the promises you make to one another and share in the joy and happiness of your day.

One thing unites all wedding traditions; a declaration of love and commitment to the people who matter the most to us. It is essential to be able to declare your love in the way that you want. Whether you want your wedding at your childhood home, or out in nature at a national park, achieving this goal requires a complicated mixture of your joint morals and philosophies. However, there is a strict legal framework to be navigated to have your marriage officially recognized by the government. I want to help guide through the legal and emotional aspects of the wedding ceremony and let the couple focus on what the wedding should be about, love.

Joanna Polley


In our contemporary world, marriage is one of the few places left where we get to step out of our daily lives and take the time to reflect on and articulate our values and commitments. To do so is to participate in a fundamentally human ritual, one that not only symbolizes finding joy in relationship but that also sets us out on a path to a life lived more consciously. As a philosopher, I help couples articulate what this ritual means to them, and creatively reflect that in a ceremony both uniquely personal and universally resonant.

I became a wedding officiant because I believe in marriage. The ups and downs and everything in between. When you have found ‘the one’ and real marriage becomes something you want to explore, not just the rings, the dress/suit, and the party - I would love the opportunity to help you seal the deal with your vows to each other whether through a big crowd or a bare minimum for those more introverted types - your vows to each other are truly what it is all about.

Love and respect can be considered a cornerstone to a wonderful life-long relationship. Celebrating your commitment to each other is a thrilling time for you both. I’m an open, friendly person who likes adventure! I like to think outside the box and encourage people to plan a day that incorporates their passions. If you like to hike or camp in Algonquin Park or enjoy the beach at sunset (or sunrise), let’s make it happen where it makes you feel so joyful and full of love that you could burst. Wherever you choose to celebrate your special day, I’d be thrilled to be there to make it transpire.

Neil Lariviere


Some may say Marriage is just about love.  I think it’s so much more than that.  It’s about joining your life with one another for the rest of your life.  It’s about giving all you can to your partner and expecting nothing in return.  It’s about building your partner up and being there if they fall.  Marriage is absolutely beautiful and there’s much more that could be said, but just not enough words to describe it.  Is Marriage about love? Absolutely, but it’s also about so much more!  I’ve been a part of wedding ceremonies  since 2013 and I can’t wait to help you solemnize your marriage!
