Rev Mark Hartburg, M.Div (Concordia)

As an Ordained Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church, I would be honoured to help you realize your vision for a wedding ceremony that conveys all the joy and thrill of your love for one another. I live in Kitchener with my husband Bruce, I am the father of two daughters (and a grandson), and we share our home with the companionship of a dog and two cats. My previous experience as a parish pastor for almost 30 years has provided me with the opportunity to celebrate weddings with many couples. I am an active member of Spectrum Community Space and I enjoy dedicating time supporting LGBTQ+ members of our communities. I look forward to the opportunity to work together with you to create a celebration as personal, creative and as fun as you wish it to be.

We had an absolutely lovely time with Mark Hartburg as our officiant. He was professional and kind. We had a very small ceremony this time but our hoping we can do a bigger ceremony with friends and family next year and I will definitely be seeking out Mark again to be officiant as we renew our vows.

We are so happy Mark officiated our wedding. Not only was he friendly, personable and easy to talk with, but he truly cared about making our day special. He catered his service to match who we were as a couple and what we wanted within our ceremony. We got married during the COVID pandemic and Mark did everything to accommodate. Even with the delay as I failed to bring the Record of Solemnization, he remained calm and patient. We would highly recommend having him for your big day as he was fantastic!

Mark was so amazing as our officiant and very professional and helpful. We had to reschedule multiple times and had to deal with the stress of changes due to covid and he was with us helping us work through it. Mark took the time to walk us through what needed to be done and helped anyway possible. He made our day that much better! Thank you Mark for making our day so special! Laurie & Andy, August 2021

Mark Hartburg was so wonderful and accommodating when it came to our wedding. It was in May 2021, so when the Covid-19 lockdown was extended past our date, the wedding had to be changed quite drastically. Mark had no problem adjusting the ceremony outline several times to suit what we needed, and made what could have been a stressful experience very easy and calm. He was also very understanding when the ceremony had to be delayed by half an hour, because the groom forgot his suit at home! We can’t imagine anyone but Mark officiating the ceremony at our wedding, and can't recommend him enough. Thank you Mark! Spencer & Alana, May 2021

It was an absolute delight to have Mark (Hartburg) officiate our wedding. He was very thorough and educated us throughout the process. He took care of all the little details to make our day truly special. Even though we contacted him last min due to Covid, he was very prompt in communicating with us. He even checked out our location ahead of time and advised us on any additional things we would need as it was extremely windy that day. He went above and beyond to make our day truly special and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Shivani & Brandon, May 2021

My husband and I chose Mark Hartburg to officiate our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. He was so helpful through everything. We had a last minute venue change due to COVID restrictions and he was completely understanding and jumped into restructuring our original seating plan and procession. He was so patient with us and gave us the direction we desperately needed with the large wedding party that we had. We can’t thank you enough Mark. Thank you for making our day so special.

We are so happy Mark (Hartburg) officiated our wedding. Not only was he friendly, personable and easy to talk with, but he truly cared about making our day special. He catered his service to match who we were as a couple and what we wanted within our ceremony. We got married during the COVID pandemic and Mark did everything to accommodate and make sure everyone felt safe. We had several guests comment on how well-spoken and easy to listen to Mark was during the ceremony. I would highly recommend having him for your big day! Cameron & Madison, August 2020

We were thrilled to have Mark officiate for our wedding. Right from the beginning, he made a genuine effort to get to know us personally and to create a ceremony that was personal and meaningful. Mark was professional and easy going and helped to make our day as stress-free as possible. Thanks for everything, Mark! June 2020

Mark Hartburg was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us with taking this next step in our relationship. From when we started planning our wedding ceremony to the final announcement at the end of the ceremony, Mark was professional and very easy to work with. Mark made it clear in our first meeting that he was there to help us tailor our ceremony so that it was exactly how we wanted it. He had valuable advice that we wouldn’t have thought about on our own, about reading our vows and where our parents should be seated among other things. Mark spoke calmly and confidently, and made us feel comfortable throughout the ceremony. We’ve been to a lot of weddings in the past six years and Mark is by far the best officiant of the bunch! We would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. We can’t thank Mark enough for what he did and the special role he played in our wedding. Jesse & Cassandra February 2020

Mark Hartburg was the perfect person for the most important job of the day. Not only is Mark extremely professional, but he is a warm and welcoming person. He made my (now) husband and I feel so comfortable through the entire process. We had a great planning meeting, where Mark guided us through the process of how the moments would work and guidelines on how to write our own vows. Mark spoke clearly, slowly and warmly to all our guests. His calming presence was contagious during a very vulnerable moment for my husband and I. I would recommend Mark to all brides & grooms who are looking for a very professional, warm & calming person. We are so very thankful Mark was the person to perform our ceremony for us and we will always be thankful for the moments he shared with us! Madeleine and Spencer December 2019
