Judy Wagdin

Located in Richmond, Ontario, I am available to perform wedding ceremonies throughout the Ottawa Valley. I am an experienced Wedding Officiant, and I will be happy to discuss any type of wedding ceremony you choose. Before becoming an Officiant, I was a teacher, and after I took time to raise my family, I returned to the work force as a Sales Rep for a major food Distributor. I have always had a strong sense of community and remain actively involved in several volunteer capacities. As a mother of four and a grandmother of eight, I am confident that I can bring humour, understanding and patience to your wedding ceremony. I look forward to meeting with you to help create the perfect wedding experience.

Bryan & Sandra
We already knew that we wanted Judy to be our officiant. Judy made everyone feel that they were an important part of the ceremony by asking them questions and involving them. She showed kindness and warmth as well. (and a little humor). Even though there were a couple of hiccups, Judy smoothed everything out. October 2023

Jonathan & Naomi
Judy added small details to our wedding to incorporate a step daughter into the ceremony was over the top and perfect. Thank you for a beautiful ceremony ! September 2023

Russell & Tammy
Judy Wagdin exceeded our expectations in every way. She was very friendly and professional throughout the whole process. When we had an issue with All Seasons Weddings reaching out to us in error to book a different officiant she took it upon herself to sort it out from her end. The ceremony itself was light hearted with a touch of humour which was perfect for us. She even found a fun way to add in personal details from the planning/getting to know us meeting. We incorporated a sand ceremony into our wedding, and when Judy couldn't find one of the colors we asked for, she went above and beyond to custom mix it for us. We would highly recommend Judy to anyone looking for an officiant. September 2022
