Ottawa Officiant

Welcome to

Ottawa Marriage Ceremonies

I am Rev. & Dr. Dave Hunter, your Ottawa Officiant / Wedding Minister. I would personally like to congratulate you on your up-and-coming marriage; it would be my pleasure to be part of your big day as I have been for thousands of other couples in the Ottawa Valley. Having been a wedding Officiant and Ordained minister the past 12 years, my joy in watching the love flow from each and every couple has only increased. I want to create a day of dreams, a day of special memories, conducting an exceptional wedding ceremony for each and everyone of you. I am always there for you, to care for as you go through your (often times) most nerve racking moments in your lives. This is a ministry of care for me, not a job; a moment in time to create memories that will carry on down through the years.

It is important to note that you do not have to remember anything; I will lead you through the whole ceremony. All you have to do is look into each other's eyes and enjoy the ceremony. Even in case of a slip-up or nervousness, my appropriate humour and easy going ways will take you through one of the most important days of your lives. I'll even have Kleenex handy for all those special moments.

I know your wedding officiant can truly make or break your special day. Ask for experience, seek confidence, make a connection and know you are being cared for. That is what I provide. I have done weddings at large venues to couples' backyards and even at the bedside of a loved one, who could not make it to the wedding ceremony.

I am the only fully dedicated, and fully ordained minister in the Ottawa valley providing marriage ceremonies, not just an individual given a licence by the province or commercial wedding provider.

I am here for you, creating a ceremony that can be religious to honour your Christian faith, even provide a short Communion/Mass or provide a totally non religious civil ceremony. It is also my pleasure to provide for those busy couples, who have just a few guests, a low cost short and simple legal ceremony at your location, no visits or planning meetings to use up your valuable time. Also I am available at my office to provide a justice of the peace type ceremony with just your two witnesses. I am flexible and willing to meet your needs. Let me be part of your wedding day. Ottawa City Hall weddings are also available.

In complete trust, I have found many couples referring others to me knowing they too will experience a wonderful moment of memories. Please book early, I only conduct a small number of weddings a weekend.
