Tess Porter

Tess has all the qualities one wants in a Wedding Officiant. She’s a life coach, a engaging public speaker, dynamic, and a genuine person. After retirement from teaching at Algonquin College, she’s redirected her passion and enthusiasm to providing couples with the personalized wedding ceremony of their choice. Located in Nepean (West Ottawa), she has given back to her community by volunteering for many philanthropic organizations such as Immigrant Women Services Ottawa. Her number one priority is to conduct a ceremony that is not only memorable, but one that truly honours the spirit of love shared between each couple.

My wife and I had the honour of having Tess Porter marry us and we are so beyond thankful and happy she did. Not only was she outstanding at making the entire ceremony so romantic, she brought laughter and tears, and our guests were so impressed with her professionalism, her clarity and her overall presence. Our day wouldn’t of been the same without Tess, and we are so genuinely happy she made our day SO perfect. An amazing experience, an amazing person, anyone getting married would be lucky to have Tess officiate.
