Rev Laurence McKenna, MDiv (St. Michael's), ThM (Toronto)

As an Ordained Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church, I believe that each couple planning their wedding should have the ceremony they desire.  I have worked as a teacher, youth minister, and as chaplain in hospitals, prison, and schools. Originally from Vancouver, I now live in Cambridge, in the Galt district.  I am a creative person who will do the utmost to incorporate your ideas into your personalized wedding ceremony.  I have presided at over 300 weddings, facilitated groups, helped with motivational speaking, and thoroughly enjoy working with people from various beliefs and lifestyle choices.  To this day I still enjoy working with kids, running youth drama programs, teaching drama skills and putting on performances.  I look forward to being part of a day you will remember for years to come.

Laurence McKenna went above and beyond. He was great to work with and helped us with our vision for a handfasting ceremony. The day turned out beautiful and our officiant worked with us to find in detail the passages we wanted and helping with ideas. Thank you Laurence for helping us make this day a fun memory. July 2022

Everything was starting to fall apart when we learned that no officiant was included on our wedding day. I was starting to lose hope that we would be able to find one last minute because I knew we were asking for the borderline impossible…. but Natasha was absolutely incredible in helping us save our wedding day at the last moment. She was incredibly kind and beyond helpful in helping us. Literally within about 35 minutes, we had an officiant on the way. Laurence McKenna showed up and literally saved our wedding day. He was incredibly kind, very thoughtful, and funny which was a very welcome change of pace after all of the last-minute stress of trying to scramble to find an officiant. We cannot thank Natasha and Laurence enough! Sept 2022

Rev Laurence McKenna was an absolute delight. He exceeded our expectations ten-fold. Rev McKenna arrived early and was able to go over the documents with us ahead of time and next steps. The ceremony was perfect. The reading and vows were exactly what we wanted (and allowed us to really be ourselves - adding soft humour and kindness). Following the ceremony, not only our attendants signed as witnesses, but also our sons that did not act as witnesses, but rather participants. It was kind, loving and we could not have been happier - on this day, the happiest day of our lives. Thank you so much Rev McKenna for making the first day of the rest of our lives together so magical. April 2022

Laurence McKenna was a dream to work with!!! He went above and beyond for my wife and I. He even walked around Cambridge with us to show us a couple other potential outdoor ceremony locations. By the end of it we were sad to say goodbye to him, he truly was so wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. He made our ceremony extra special. September 2021
Andrea & Warren
We could not have survived our COVID wedding without Laurence McKenna’s guidance. He was communicative, kind and informative; he met us with knowledge and humour every step of the way. He worked with our ever-changing schedules, provided us with a personalized wedding script, accommodated changes and edits, and — we kid you not — even *invented* a unique Blessing of the Hands speech & learned to tie our Handfasting cord, just to further incorporate our specific cultural traditions into the ceremony. Our family (both Canadian, and those visiting from Ireland) were in awe of how professionally & seamlessly he lead our ceremony. We could not have asked for a better experience! If you are planning a wedding, you need Laurence. Full stop. He’s your guy. October 2021

Traynor & Nicole
We had the privilege of having Laurence as the officiant on our wedding day. He exceeded our expectations from the very beginning. He was extremely organized and prepared throughout the whole process. He helped us a great deal to organize the ceremony to the way we wanted it. He would give us options for different parts throughout the ceremony and would help us in our discussions to decide what we wanted to do. During the ceremony he was extremely personable, funny, and compassionate. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the ceremony was and how great Laurence was at leading it. We would highly recommend Laurence as your officiant for your wedding day! Traynor & Nicole September 2020
