Peter Fortier

Peter is an award-winning wedding officiant. He says: 'It would be my absolute pleasure to be your wedding officiant for one of the most important milestones you will experience in your life. My 37 years of experience in the Canadian Military has given me the opportunity to grow and experience a wide variety of communities. This has given me the ability to relate to many different cultures. My wife Marie and I have been married for 43 years and have lived in Kanata for over 20 years. I am an active volunteer within my community and an advocate for our youth. During my free time I enjoy swimming, cycling and most of all taking long hikes with Maggie and Rambo, our golden retrievers. I am a caring and compassionate individual who will work closely with you to ensure a positive experience on your special day." Peter is open to any and all types of ceremonies and theme weddings. Take note! Peter is much in demand.

Peter Fortier was very well spoken, had some moments of comic relief, and overall was a great experience to work with. September 2021
Whitney & Devon
Peter Fortier was knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and listen to all of our concerns and feedback in regard to our wedding ceremony. We wanted quick and easy and he delivered! I was very nervous and missed a few lines and he calmly helped me out by quietly repeating them so I didn't look silly. We absolutely will and have referred Peter to people looking for an officiant. Thank you Peter for all of your help and helping us finally make it to the big day! Whitney & Devon August 2021

Our Wedding was beautiful and we didn't encounter one snag. It was held at the Mill of Kintail in Almonte Ontario which was a perfect venue. Peter Fortier met us there and was very organized, well spoken and threw in a few laughs too here and there! We would highly recommend him! Patrick & Leslie August 2019

Leading up to the wedding, he stayed in contact with us and met with us also thoroughly went over the ceremony to made sure to include everything we wanted. I would highly recommend him if your looking for an officiant in Kanata/Ottawa! Thank you again Peter! Natasha and Ryan May 2019

Peter Fortier went above our expectations. We got married in Ontario even though we are living in Alberta and it made it challenging meeting up with everyone for the wedding. He was more than able to make our meetings work around our visits and his email correspondence was always prompt and pleasant. We loved that no matter the situation, that an officiant would be there to cover the day in the event of an emergency and that they would have a copy of the ceremony that we drafted. It was such a great stress relief knowing that. I cannot say enough about our interaction with Peter. His personality and sense of humour matched perfectly with ours and gave our wedding day that extra little touch it needed. Even with the lovely weather (torrential downpour!) he was able to adjust on the fly and make our day amazing. Highly recommend him to anyone.

Lisa & Michael
Peter Fortier was great! We met up with him for coffee a few weeks before our wedding and his questions were very thoughtful and thorough. He was on time and looked great for the wedding :) My father and I arrived about 10 minutes earlier than anticipated and Peter didn't miss a beat! Also, Peter was great with our 7 year old Niece who was our impromptu ring bearer. Our only complaint would be that he didn't stay for a glass of champagne!! (Just kidding) - Thanks so much Peter!

Peter Fortier went over and above any expectations. Absolutely fabulous!
Yvonne & Rhys
Peter Fortier is a great officiant! We basically wrote the entire ceremony telling him what to say when. This changed his outline significantly but he was more than happy to do what was requested. He was extremely friendly and easy to work with. We would certainly recommend Peter to others!
