My name is Reverend Martin Christopher, and I would like to say thank you for considering me to officiate your wedding. It will be an honor to perform your wedding ceremony.

The ceremony and vows should reflect the uniqueness of your relationship and capture the celebration of the love which brought you to this memorable moment in your lives. There are a variety of civil, non-denominational, multi-faith, religious and non-religious ceremonies available to choose from, or I can help you create a customized wedding ceremony that honors and reflects the love you share. It’s YOUR wedding day – have the ceremony you want!

Ceremonies can be traditional or innovative;   I will lovingly perform the ceremony you choose. I will travel to your location and be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Even if it is a last minute ceremony, I will do my best to officiate your special day.

I will gladly provide a script of vows prior to any ceremony and/or help write new ones per your direction. Please let my 36 years of wedded bliss help make your first special day together a happy and memorable one.

With the help of Rev. Martin we were able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding. It was my favorite part of the whole day hands down. He told us from day one that he wanted to help us create a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted and a reflection of us. We were able to do exactly that. To top it off Rev. Martin was kind, funny, accommodating, helpful and a dream to work with. We had actually previously booked an officiant that ended up not working out for a variety of reasons and as a result were scared of being able to find someone else in time that was a good fit. Rev. Martin was a breathe of fresh air, and we are so very thankful we found him here at WeddingWire. The reviews are no exaggeration. He really is that great.

My husband and I, and our families, cannot say enough wonderful things about Rev. Martin Lavery. From initial contact right up until our wedding day, Rev. Martin was an invaluable resource for all things wedding ceremony. A response to the very first point of contact included a massive document of different ceremony ideas, including readings, vows, and ceremonial pieces. From there on out, he was incredibly accommodating to all of our (slightly off-the-wall) ideas and edits. He was always there to calm nerves, answer questions, or even just to chat, and we always received an incredibly quick reply. Circumstances did not allow him to attend our rehearsal, but he extended about an hour long courtesy FaceTime call with us to explain all of the details of our ceremony, including giving us all of his best advice for conducting rehearsal by ourselves. This was SO appreciated and SO helpful!!! I had attended so many weddings where the officiant went completely off track and left the wedding guests thinking "what?". There are absolutely no worries of this with Rev. Martin officiating. He has an absolutely wonderful speaking voice as well. Our ceremony was perfectly us and completely tailored to us, our family, and our friends. Our wedding guests still cannot stop talking about how beautiful our wedding ceremony was! It was my husband's and I's favorite part of our wedding. Rev. Martin also worked with our photographer to add parts to the ceremony which allowed for the opportunity for extra photographs, which we appreciated and hadn't given a thought to beforehand. Rev. Martin is a wonderful, personable, and friendly person which translates into an exceptional officiant -- he went over and beyond the call of duty! We can't thank him enough for making our wedding day extra special. We wholeheartedly recommend Rev. Martin to anyone looking for the perfect officiant for their special day! You will not be disappointed!

Reverend Martin was absolutely amazing to work with. He was professional, prompt, and knew exactly how to put us at ease. This was the one aspect of our wedding I was not worried about one bit and we will absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

Thank you Lydia, for the very kind words. Your ceremony was so romantic, and the two of you make such an awesome couple! I just loved the beauty of the baloons sailing off to the mountains during your love lock ceremony!!

Martin was so helpful from beginning to end. He responded quickly, sent examples, readings, quotes, videos, and really wanted my husband and I to have the best ceremony. He was very flexible on a place and time for meeting and the week before the wedding we even video chatted to confirm and go over everything, including how to pronounce names. I got SO many compliments after the ceremony about how perfect and beautiful it was. I highly recommend him!!

Reverend Martin was absolutely amazing for our wedding. He was compassionate, responsive and reassuring when we requested his help to get married in only 2 months before my husband's overseas deployment. I was a very nervous bride with condensed planning time and Rev Martin made it so easy for me to not worry about our officiant and ceremony. His ceremony was beautiful and had our 175 person guest list in tears. He met with us via video conference, in person and at our rehearsal to do whatever it took to ensure our wedding was perfect. We are forever grateful. Love, Shelby + Connor

Reverend Martin was absolutely amazing. From the moment we decided to use his services he was super friendly, helpful, understanding, and sweet. Reverend Martin and I communicated mainly through emails (solely because I was so busy with wedding planning/life) where we decided step by step how the ceremony would go and it was EVERYTHING i was hoping for. Rev Martin was there for me when I needed to call or email, he was super quick to respond and made sure everything was perfect for our day. He truly puts you and your fiance first and makes sure everything is exactly what you're looking for. Our ceremony was gorgeous. I would recommend Rev. Martin to all that are looking for someone helpful, thorough, and kind.

Rev. Martin was such a great officiant! He took the time to learn what we wanted and gave us so many options for our ceremony. He was very professional and answered all of our questions in a very timely manor. He was able to give us a personalized ceremony that people still talk about today. It was a very beautiful ceremony and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. I highly recommend Rev. Martin to everyone!
