Mountainside Ministries

Whether you are religious or not, you deserve a beautiful ceremony! As a non-denominational officiant on the Ontario registry of certified ministers, Marni Moreau can perform wedding ceremonies for any religion, and get you legally married to the one you love. She officiates all kinds of weddings, including same-sex marriage unions, small informal ceremonies and destination weddings, as well as large indoor or outdoor gatherings.

Marni’s love affair with weddings began when she was a teenager performing as a vocalist at church weddings in Thornbury and Clarksburg. Later in life, she was inspired to become a minister by her brother, who has performed over 2,000 weddings in Japan. She genuinely loves connecting with people and hearing the story of how they fell in love and chose to become partners. As you sit with Marni and discuss different possibilities for your wedding ceremony, Marni learns so much about who you are individually and what binds you as a couple. Using this knowledge, she collaborates with her couples to create a meaningful and unique ceremony that truly reflects a bride and groom’s personalities, their personal styles and their histories. Every word she speaks at weddings are fully approved by each couple. 

She loves helping you create vows that really reflect your own unique love and partnership, and then helping you share those words with your partner in front of your most beloved family and friends.

The extraordinary joy of the wedding day and being at the epicentre of a couple's official commitment to each other is amazing. It is a true privilege to lead a couple and their group of close family and friends through a celebration of one of life’s most beautiful moments.
