Hi, my name is Derek Schwartzentruber and I am a certified licensed Wedding Officiant in the province of Ontario. I am also a Life Events Celebrant.

“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”

1 Choice. I believe that the ceremony should be a reflection of you and your passions. All content is your choice not mine. I will not just hand you a script and a set of rules to follow. Couples love that I encourage them to choose their ceremony content and to choose the right feel for their wedding day.
2 Communication. The most important part of the wedding day is the ceremony. All great ceremonies are great because of how the words are delivered and how the ceremony is led. I am a very passionate communicator who will deliver an amazing ceremony to be remembered by all who attend.
3 Confidence. I bring my experience in officiating wedding ceremonies to help guide you in your planning, and to deliver a professional and passionate ceremony that will be beyond your expectations.
