Alberta wedding officiant

After spending over 30 years in the mountain town of Canmore, Alberta, and officially moving into retirement, Patrick now resides in Cochrane, Alberta.
His favourite movie is The Princess Bride. One of his car licence plates is MAWAGE.
Since he was appointed an Alberta Marriage Commissioner in July of 2014, he has performed over 1000 marriage ceremonies.

His wedding involvement is almost 40 years since he started a DJ business in Calgary. Ten years before selling his DJ service to one of his long-time staff members, he took many workshops, attended countless seminars and invested many hours in one goal, creating a customized, personalized and memorable experience for his clients.

This wealth of experience is now used to create customized, personalized and memorable marriage ceremonies for the many couples that have chosen the Canadian Rocky Mountains, specifically, the Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise areas, where they will exchange their vows.
In addition to Marriage Ceremonies, I also offer Vow Renewals and Commitment Ceremonies.
Whether you are looking for an entire ceremony with readings and unity ceremonies or just a short and sweet ceremony before a destination wedding, Patrick would love to have the opportunity to chat with you about what your perfect marriage ceremony looks like.
