Charles [Hain] was absolutely terrific. He was asked to step in as our officiant with one day's notice after our other official unfortunately came down with Covid. He contacted us right away and assured us everything would be great. He was extremely personable and calming. We received a number of compliments on our wedding ceremony. We would highly recommend him. Thank you Charles. May 2022
We had a wonderful experiencing working with Charles Hain on our wedding. From the first meeting, he was someone we clicked with and we had a lot of fun chatting with him throughout the process. We were looking for an officiant who could balance humour/entertainment with importance/gravity of the marriage ceremony. Charles did that flawlessly! We also appreciated his help writing the ceremony. We began with some fairly vague ideas of what we wanted to do, and he was instrumental in helping us figure out what how we wanted to personalize. We absolutely love how it all turned out! Many of our guests came to us afterward to compliment the ceremony and Charles' delivery. Charles, thank you again for working with us and making our ceremony perfect! Oct 2021
Charles Hain was exceptional. Very friendly demeanor but quite capable of commanding a room. As a professor, I understand the skill involved and Charles made it look effortless. The ceremony was smooth, his speech was well prepared and all of the guests felt captivated by the show. Thank you Charles for the amazing ceremony. September 2021
Charles Hain was fantastic! We couldn't have asked for anyone better as he put us at ease and it made it that much more memorable. He was extremely friendly, down to earth and guided us like a true professional. He even directed our photographer on the best angles for the ceremony photos. Jeff & Nancy May 2021
Charles Hain was wonderful. He was a sea of calm during a very unusual (Covid) ceremony. He made the day special for us and did a fantastic job bringing our children into the ceremony to make it special for them also. We could not recommend him more. Thank you Charles! John & Julie December 2020
Charles Hain was an absolute delight to work with! We received so many compliments about him & how much fun he was. From the beginning, we wanted to customize and add a bit of fun into our ceremony, and from the beginning Charles was fully on-board and willing to have fun with it. We had a few last-minute changes (due to COVID) and Charles was communicative and supportive throughout everything. We were so grateful that Charles was part of our day! Russell and Samantha October 2020
Charles Hain was everything we wanted in an officiant and so much more! Leading up to our big day, he was easy to communicate with and coordinate with, did an excellent job helping to direct us for our wedding rehearsal, gave us lots of great advice, and was immensely helpful in sending us reminders. On our wedding day, Charles arrived early, made sure everyone knew what to do, had our personal wedding vows readily printed out for us, and officiated our wedding flawlessly. Not only did everyone get to experience very kind, calm, and easygoing demeanour, they also got to laugh heartily many times during our ceremony, as he has a great sense of humour. Charles did such a wonderful job at our wedding that my cousin, who was in attendance, will be having Charles officiate his wedding this summer. We would highly recommend Charles to anyone wanting the perfect officiant for their special day! Ashley & Andrew September 2019
Charles Hain is a very friendly, courteous and professional officiant with a delightful sense of humour. Early in the planning process, Charles met with us over coffee so that we could get acquainted and chat about the type of ceremony we envisioned. He familiarized us with the flow of the ceremony and answered any questions we had. He later helped draft a meaningful and inspirational ceremony, inviting us to make any additions or changes that would make it more personal. As the wedding day approached, Charles met with our group for the rehearsal, thereby helping everyone feel more comfortable and relaxed. On the day of our wedding, Charles was prompt and addressed any last minute reminders and details before the ceremony started. He was very reassuring and made everyone feel at ease, especially during emotional moments. Charles is a clear confident speaker with a light hearted demeanour. We received many compliments from our guests. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a motivating and personable officiant. Thank you Charles! Laura and Stefan July 2019. Any communication with the office staff at All Seasons was professional, reassuring and cordial. Always eager to please! Regards, Laura & Stefan

Charles Hain went up and above our expectations as our wedding officiant. He did an incredible job with the ceremony and we couldn’t recommend him more highly. We also loved how he took care of all the extra details without even asking (I.e. setting up the signing table, ensuring the groomsmen removed sunglasses / gum before the ceremony, picked up marriage license from my father). This made everything run so smoothly and put us at ease. Thank you Charles! Brent & Erin May 2019

We wanted a simple, meaningful ceremony in our home. Our search for an officiant led us to Charles who provided just the right amount of sentimentality, levity and relaxed approach to make our wedding about as perfect as you can get. Thank you so much Charles. Nick & Deirdre March 2019
Charles Hain was the officiant at a wedding I attended recently. The bride and groom are a fun crazy couple so we knew the wedding would be high spirited, laid back and fun. We did not expect the same from the officiant! Charles was wonderful. His service was perfect. His words were touching and inspirational. But the best part was that he fit the already established unconventional ‘mood’ of the wedding perfectly. He laughed with the couple when they broke out in crazy banter due to high strung nerves which he also contributed to with his great sense of humour. Charles’ service was one of the best I’ve ever been privileged to attend. Thank you Charles!!! June 2018
Charles Hain was friendly, pleasant and very easy going. Rick and I liked him from the moment we met him so felt very comfortable with him performing our ceremony. Charles was punctual and prompt in replying to my emails. During our ceremony, he spoke with a smile on his face and very clear, even without the microphone. It was truly a pleasure getting to know Charles. Please pass on my review to him. Thank you.

Charles Hain went above and beyond our expectations. He met up with us for the rehearsal and on a few different occasions for coffee. He was friendly, very funny and understood what "type" of ceremony that we were trying to achieve. He spoke beautifully in a tone and pace that all could understand and hear. We'd recommend Charles to anyone out there looking for an officiant. Charles is an incredibly nice, professional man. He was courteous when discussing the days events with our family members and bridal party at the rehearsal. We were incredibly impressed and received a lot of positive feedback from our guests for how the ceremony flowed naturally and had that "family-like" feeling.
