Celebrating Your Wedding$350 Per Event
Rev. Darrow is an experienced, open-minded wedding officiant, who brings warmth and humour to the celebration of weddings. He has learned how to help people relax, to focus on what is most important, and to feel like everyone at the wedding is an active participant in a very special moment. He is enthusiastic about helping any couples who are legally able to be married in the province of Ontario. Darrow is willing to travel reasonable distances in the greater Toronto area. In some cases, there may be an additional charge for travel time. The "package" includes a consultation/conversation with the couple, in person, or over the phone, to talk about their hopes, needs, and vision for the ceremony. Based on that conversation, Rev. Darrow can provide, usually by email, a draft of a ceremony, that includes options and suggestions about readings, vows, and parts of the ceremony which may suit the couple. While Rev. Darrow is an ordained minister in the United Church of Canada, over the years he has worked with couples with diverse religious and cultural backgrounds. He looks for ways to express the spiritual meaning of the occasion that add depth of meaning to the ceremony, but does not feel the need to "push" beliefs or ideas.
Darrow Woods officiated at my son's wedding. He made the service very personal even though he only met the bride and groom once. He was very personable and everyone enjoyed his presence. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant extraordinaire.
