Peter Fortier

Peter was voted by his peers in the wedding industry as the most popular new wedding officiant in Ottawa in the coveted annual Wedding Expert Awards 2015. It would be his absolute pleasure to be your wedding officicant for one of the most important milestones you will experience in your life. He is open to any and all types and theme weddings. My 35 years of experience in the Canadian Military has given me the opportunity to grow up in various communities across Canada. This has given me the ability to relate to many different cultures. My wife Marie and I have been married for 33 years and have lived in Kanata for over 10 years. We are retiring in Ottawa to remain close to our family. 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, our golden retriever. I am a caring and compassionate individual who will work closely with you to ensure a positive experience on your special day.

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!

Dominik & Sylvie
Peter Fortier is a very nice man. He made us laugh and comfortable. All of our expectations about the ceremony was filled with joy and happiness. It what not just a 5 minutes ceremony but 30 minutes of laughter and fun!
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 was very professional and pleasant to work with as we planned our ceremony. Very impressed! He was very personable and informative with ceremony suggestions - the little things that we may have forgotten to consider
Jessica & Christopher
Thank you Peter for a wonderfully delivered ceremony. The fact that we were able to collaborate with you on the text really made our day special.
Shannon & Jeffery
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.
