Hilde Atkinson was sweet and cheerful. She showed up on time, was super accommodating and communicative, and made our whole experience great. August 2022
Hilde Atkinson surpassed our expectations as an officiant. She was kind and thoughtful. We had an online meeting where she made us feel welcomed. She went through the details of the ceremony with precision and many helpful suggestions. She added such a flare to the service by researching where we came from and the very long distance we travelled to get wed. She is so personable and friendly. Never once did she rush us. She was fully involved in guiding us from suggestions with our vows, to walking down the aisle, to celebrating with us. She has a great sense of humour and even hummed the wedding march for us since we had no music. Our wedding ceremony was perfect. We could not have hand picked a better person, and now friend, to get us married. We were able to be matched with Hilde who was perfect and we could not have asked for anything more. The success of our ceremony was due to having such an experienced and dedicated officiant such as Hilde Atkinson. Well done. May 2022
Despite us springing our wedding on Hilde Atkinson with only 2 weeks to go, she made planning our ceremony absolutely perfect. Throughout the planning, she pointed out things we would never have considered and thus avoided quite a lot of potential awkwardness when things mattered most. She was very flexible with the overall structure, and made sure we understood everything that would happen so there were no surprises - we are planners at heart and appreciated the in-depth timeline. The ceremony went smoothly all thanks to Hilde. Thank you so much for making our day super special! May 2022
Hilde Atkinson was so wonderful, warm, and welcoming. We had the Make it Legal package as we were marrying for legal reasons before the big wedding and she still made our day romantic, intimate, and special. April 2022
Thank you Hilde! Hilde Atkinson was our officiant, and she was wonderful to work with. She guided us through the process calmly and competently, and delivered a wonderful, bilingual ceremony with warmth and humour - and we extra-appreciate her flexibility as we had to make some very last-minute pivots due to Covid. We'd highly recommend Hilde! Jan 2022

Good afternoon Hilde… Thank you for everything yesterday! The service was beautiful and we will have such great memories of our special day! All the best! Mr. & Mrs. Hamish Macfie
Thank you for everything Hilde. We were so happy to meet you and appreciate you coming out to the park, we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! Thanks again for everything. You made the day so simple and easy for us. We appreciate it so much, no stress, no worries, just happiness. Couldn’t of had a better day. We wish you well! Thanks, from the Wills’s!
Hi Hilde, We just wanted you to know how incredibly special and memorable you made our wedding ceremony. We were absolutely in awe and so were all of our guests. We cannot thank you enough for officiating our special day, it went way beyond what we ever imagined. Brian and Orecia
Hilde Atkinson was so wonderful! She has such a calming presence about her and immediately made us feel at ease from the moment we said hello on our first Zoom call. There is so much stress in planning for your wedding day that having someone like Hilde involved is the best decision you could make. She was always available for any questions we had and took the time to walk us through step by step how the ceremony would unfold. And on wedding day she checked in with both of us and made sure that our bridal party knew exactly where to walk and where to stand. Having Hilde standing up at the front with us made us feel as comfortable as if she was an extension of our family. Thanks again! Ricky & Samantha May 2021
Hi Hilde, I just wanted to thank you again for Saturday, I'm so over the moon with how the ceremony, and whole day went. I felt a tad nervous before walking down the aisle, but having the kids there quickly me made feel right at home. Thank you for keeping everyone in line, and being a part of our special day. Thanks again, it was such a pleasure meeting you! Peer and Brittany
Hi Hilde, first off, I wanted to thank you for an incredible ceremony. Tanya and I had such a wonderful day and you made everything perfect. We thank you so much for everything. I am sorry that I did not get a chance to sit and have a drink with you! Everything seemed so busy in transitioning the room from ceremony to dining. We feel blessed to have you there and marry us. Thank you Shawn and Tanya
I just wanted to say thank you for officiating our wedding and that it was so lovely to meet you. It was such a beautiful ceremony and a perfect day! Thanks again. Kind regards, Jennifer and Simeon
Hi Hilde I just wanted to thank you very much for being with us on our wedding day. I was a bit overwhelmed with everything that was going on and didn't have much of a chance to chat with you. We were very pleased with how everything went and will not hesitate to recommend you to friends. I hope you have a wonderful New Year,
Hilde Atkinson was wonderful. She was very giving of her time and resources. We met with her before selecting an officiant to make sure we were a good fit. She did a wonderful job of walking us through the process, and sharing resources to help us prepare our ceremony. She was on time and organized during our wedding, and always was really pleasant and kind.
Above and beyond. Hilde Atkinson made it very easy for us, even though we were living out of province. She was fantastic! Everything went perfectly at the ceremony and it was all thanks to Hilde. She really was great and we greatly appreciate everything she did for us. Highly recommended
