Just some Tips..
Wedding Ceremonies are typically known for starting a little late. On your invitations specific wording as to when the ceremony will be starting or invite guests to arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to your anticipated start time.
We reccomend obtaining your marriage license 1-2 months before your wedding day. An applicaion form along with 2 pieces of photo I.D for each person must be brought into any city hall in Ontario. The cost of around $140+HST and you obtain it on the same day.
If you plan on incorporating a wedding unity ceremony then you will love Etsy. They have all of your needs for a sand ceremony kit, love letter and wine box essentials and many other resources and essentials for your wedding ceremony.

What some couples have said
Rina & Ozi
Alex Rajak is amazing. He already had married two couples in our circle of friends and they recommend him, so we got his number. After my first phone talk with him I understood our friends. Alex was very helpful, he explained me everything step by step and right after we hang up, he send me a text with all the information I needed, which we had talked on the phone already. We talked to Alex 4-5 times until the ceremony, he always made sure there is no gaps and that we’re satisfied with the answers. At the night of the ceremony he came earlier and introduced himself in person, we’re so excited we had forgot to make ready the marriage license. Alex took it with humour and tried to keep us calm with “small talk”. He performed the ceremony without any rush and showed himself very professional, his voice, the tone everything was perfect. We also reached to him 3 days after our ceremony for some help regarding the marriage certificate and he immediately found a solution for us and even met us again. We highly recommend Alex Rajak.

Alex Rajak was absolutely amazing! Once my husband and I had our first meeting with him, we knew immediately we wanted him as our Officiant. He is kind, patient and has an amazing sense of humour! For our rehearsal, he agreed to dress up in a Batman costume because my husband loves Batman and wanted to be married by Batman, so I compromised for our rehearsal. You will not go wrong with Alex!

My rating may sound a bit repulsive but truth to be said. When we met with Alex for first time my fiancé and I really felt connected and he understands our wants and need. Up until our wedding day he helped us where it was needed. On day of the wedding before the ceremony he went through good detail of what’s about to happen. I love that not only Alex is fun and easy to talk to but he kept his professionalism. Our family on both sides loved his humour. He didn’t make it feel like it’s just a job, he made us feel like we knew him for a while.

We have nothing but great things to say about Alex! The ceremony was the most important part of the day for us and Alex definitely made that happen. He was so easy going when we met and made the ceremony feel incredibly intimate, even with 250+ people in the room! He was also VERY funny and threw in a little surprise joke on us, which everyone loved including us. We received so many compliments from our friends and family on our officiant – we would HIGHLY recommend to others.

We stumbled on Wedding Heaven after performing a Google Search for an officiant for our wedding. Ended up meeting Alex Raja. Alex walked us through the process, met with us in person and again over Facetime (which was convenient for both of us) and kept in regular contact via email. He even offered us “vow” templates that we could work with in developing our vows if we chose to. On the day of our wedding, Alex did an amazing job officiating it despite us getting started late. He kept us organized and reduced the level of stress on us and made us comfortable throughout. If there was another opportunity, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Alex in the future. Alex, thank you for your help! – Richard

We found Alex through the WeddingWire website and after reading a lot of great reviews about him, we decided to contact him and schedule an in-person meeting. Our first impression about him was wonderful, he was so calm and friendly, he explained all the steps of the cerimony and also gave us some awesome ideas to make our special day even more perfect. Right away we felt that he was perfect to celebrate our wedding and we couldn’t be more right. On the big day he arrived earlier and talked to my husband to line up the last details and the ceremony was absolutely perfect!!!! Exactly the way we always pictured, his words felt so right and like he knew us for a long time. Even our guests loved him, they kept asking if he was our friend. We definitely recommend his services! He even said a few words in our own native language that he learned just a few weeks before the wedding, so our parents (that do not speak English) would feel welcomed.

We had found Alex in a Facebook group as a recommendation and by fluke ended up being the name of an officiant my best friends wedding venue was giving her. As soon as we met him we knew that we wanted him to marry us. He is funny, patient and you will definitely be in great hands. Our photo & video company we had hired LOVED his ceremony (they kept telling us, and letting us know how many ceremonies they’ve seen and how he have been the best out of all of them!). We can’t thank him enough for being there for us, for being patient, being informative. marrying us AND for putting up with all the bugs even though he had an allergy (we got married outside!) .

Alex is the best officiant in the business. I think his greatest attributes are his sense of humour and his ability to adapt his style to fit the feel of your ceremony. Our ceremony was very casual and full of laughs, and Alex ensured that the he kept things casual as well. We also had a slight delay at the beginning and Alex did a great job of entertaining our guests in the interim with his sharp wit. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who looking for an officiant who can make everything look natural when things “go off script”, and “roll with the punches” when unexpected things pop up during a ceremony! A+ / 5 Star recommendation for Alex.

Geoffrey & Jennifer
Alex did an incredible job officiating our ceremony. We previously attended another wedding that Alex was officiating and saw that he did a great job which is why we selected him to be our officiant. Alex was very responsive to our emails and was always very cheerful when we met with him. He even took the time to learn a couple lines in Teochew. He also spoke a line in Cantonese! Overall, Alex did an amazing job and we highly recommend him for others looking for a wedding officiant.

Alex was absolutely amazing, hands down!!! As soon as my husband and I met with him, we knew we wanted to hire him to be our officiant. He is friendly, funny, and has great energy. He made the planning process very easy and guided us very well to perfect our ceremony. Like most brides, I was getting a little stressed on the day of, especially since my husband and I chose not to do a rehearsal, but Alex assured me everything would go smoothly and, sure enough, he was absolutely right. He made us smile, laugh, and cry. It was beautiful. Thank you Alex!!

Tara & Trevor
Alex Rajak did a fantastic job as our officiant!! As soon as we met him we felt really comfortable and at ease and decided to book him right away. He was very flexible and fun to work with, while also being very responsible and respectful. Most importantly, he took the time to get to know us and as a result the ceremony was perfect, short and sweet with a little humour which is just our style. We would highly recommend him.

Corliss & Scott
Alex was amazing! We spontaneously threw a last minute wedding which gave us less than 5 days to secure an officiant, and without any hesitations and restrictions, Alex bent over backwards to fulfill all our wishes and vision. The ceremony was over the Canada Day long weekend, and so you can imagine the pressure we felt in finding an officiant who would be available. Not only did he free up his long weekend for us, but he was also very flexible with the location and time. On the day of the ceremony, Alex called in the morning to ensure that everything was on schedule and to remind us of what we needed to bring, this further demonstrated to us his professionalism and it gave us the reassurance that everything will go as planned. On site, there were no surprises here, Alex was on time and on point. His direction and command of the ceremony was everything we wanted and we could not have asked for a better person to officiate our special day. But it didn’t stop there, Alex was also very informative and gave us step by step instructions on how and when we can order our marriage certificate – he said this onsite as well as in a follow-up email, which was much appreciated since we were on a wedding high after the ceremony and obviously did not have the capacity to retain everything he was telling us on-site! Thanks so much, Alex! You were so great to work with and I would absolutely recommend you without a doubt!
