    Anthony did an amazing job, was very professional, and on time. He is an officiate at the courts and was extremely helpful and knowledgable of the marriage license process. We would recommend him to any of our friends or family in a heart beat! Thank you Anthony!!

    Anthony recently officiated our wedding in Los Angeles and did an excellent job! He listened to what we wanted for our ceremony and executed it beautifully! He is also a licensed notary which was very helpful for us since we recently moved out of state. Super easy to work with, professional and friendly, I highly recommend him!

    I first spoke to this lovely couple by FaceTime from out of state. Their ceremony was held on a lovely rooftop patio in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and it was a lovely occasion with a bagpiper! I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

    Book with Anthony; he's the best! You won't find anyone else who will put you more at ease for your ceremony than he. From the get go, he is organized and will notify you about everything that needs to be planned for the ceremony so there are no surprises. He is also funny and has great inputs on readings for the ceremony. Your guests will be engaged and entertained. With all the craziness and stress that comes with wedding planning, you will be comforted to know that your ceremony will be one thing you won't have to worry about. Also, post-ceremony, he will still take care of sending in your paperwork so you can take off happily for your honeymoon!

    I was absolutely delighted to officiate at the ceremony of this lovely couple. They were married at the very elegant Inn of the Seventh Ray in the heart of Topanga Canyon. The couple were keen for me to incorporate a mention of their dogs on the ceremony and we did that very nicely. I wish them every happiness.

    So classy, professional, accommodating, just the right amount of humor, and the British accent just puts it over the top. I had guest after guest come up to me and tell me my ceremony was the best they had ever been a part of. I would recommend Anthony for any couple that wants a ceremony to remember.

    Lesia and her husband were married at the absolutely beautiful Sterling Hills Golf Club in Camarillo. They included a sand ceremony which is a very special way of showing their commitment. They are a lovely couple and I wish them every happiness.

  • Mark C. Sep 13, 2015
    We don't know what others look for in a wedding officiant, but we do know whatever it is, you will find it here. Perfect from start to finish. Anthony makes the process what it should be - a joy. He is everything from thorough to relaxing to flexible to amusing to more than professional. Not only did we make the right choice in asking Anthony to officiate our wedding, we believe we have found new friends - in both he and his lovely wife, Liz, who also performed one of our readings. They didn't just help make the day go well, they added to it in the most unexpected ways. Thank you so much, guys.
    Anthony M. Sep 13, 2015

    Mark and his lovely wife are a charming couple, and were married at a lovely home in Malibu with a spectacular view of the canyons. There was a small and very intimate group of family and friends, some of whom had traveled internationally. I was delighted and honored to be a part of this special day, and wish the newlyweds a long and happy life together.

    If there was an option for 10 stars, Anthony would deserve at least that many. He was very pleasant, he returned calls, and actually married us with only a 2 hour notice. He even came to came to our apartment where he performed a lovely ceremony! I highly recommend him!

    Cindy and her partner are a delightful couple. They had an appointment to be married at the Van Nuys Registrar's office but were thwarted when they could not find parking. So they called me and I was fortunately able to help them in their goal of a simple, short, elegant ceremony. I wish these two many happy years together.

    Anthony is great! Since I would like to have the ceremony on Santa Monica Pier, he said he would like to officiate us and then take his wife to have seafood. So I decided to choose him, because it's a good sign to have an officiant who loves and cherishes his wife. Besides, he responded my messages quickly and clearly, provided many tips for the ceremony and marriage license pick-up, showed up 15 minutes earlier, officiate exactly what we want, and cooperate well with the photographer. And his wife is also very lovely and nice, helping us carry bags, which is really really helpful. If any viewer would like to refer to my review, it's a "just two of us" ceremony with vows and rings. Anthony, can't thank you more for your job and the pleasant moment you bring to us. And wish you and your family all the best.
    Anthony M. Jun 28, 2015

    Wenjia and her new husband are a lovely couple. We met on the pier on a Tuesday evening, it was packed! They had found an excellent photographer who took many pictures using the different elements found on the pier - the telescope, the funfair, wooden walls. We held the ceremony on the beach right at water's edge and I had to talk very loud to be heard over the waves! Afterwards there was a resounding round of applause from the spectators all around. All in all it was a splendid evening. I wish this delightful couple many years of wedded bliss.

    My wife and I were very satisfied with how Anthony helped us right from the beginning. From the meetings on how we want the ceremony done to the wordings of the ceremony proper. He is very open to suggestions and did a very beautiful sand ceremony for us and our sons. He also assisted our photographer and videographer so they can get better photos of the ceremony proper. Kudos to you, Anthony and more power!
    Anthony M. Jun 21, 2015

    Gloria and her partner (now wife!) are a splendid couple who put a lot of thought into making their marriage ceremony really special for themselves, their sons, and their guests. They were married in the gazebo of the ever popular Odyssey Restaurant in Granada Hills, with a ceremony that included the Sand Ceremony. They are a lovely couple and I wish many years of happiness for them.

    Anthony is absolutely wonderful. All my vendors were amazing for my wedding but he was constantly there to help. He is on top of everything, goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding ceremony is perfect and beautiful. He provided us with every possible material we needed, emailed us back to every question most of the time in minutes! He is amazing !! Don't think twice about him. He knows how to make a beautiful ceremony. Whether you know exactly what you want or you don't he can make it happen! We will treasure our special ceremony he provided us with forever. I highly recommend him to everyone. Thank you Anthony for being the best officiant ever!!

    I really enjoyed being a part of Erika and her husband's special day. They were married in the lovely Robinson Ranch in Santa Clarita. The wedding included the "Heart Ceremony" which is really unique - I had recommended and read "I Carry Your Heart In My Heart", by e.e. cummings. It was an honor to be there for the marriage of this beautiful couple and I wish them all the best for the future.

    Anthony is a great wedding officiant. He's friendly, easy to talk to, and had an on-point reading that accommodated all our quirks. He also walked us through the entire licensing and registration process beforehand, even telling us where we should go, when and what exactly we had to do. Huge help.

    Anthony Matthews was the officiant for our wedding. We met with him to discuss our expectations for our ceremony and he was able to give us suggestions too! From the get go he was very responsive to emails and his best interest was that our day be perfect! He had suggested that we write love notes to each other and read them to each other during the ceremony. The guest loved the personal touch! He was very helpful with the process of us getting our license as well. He was on time, professional and our ceremony was perfect because of him!!!

    Anthony was a great pleasure, he let me know how our ceremony was going to look and he even let us decide if we wanted it different or if we wanted to add something to it. He emailed me about everything important. He made the day we wanted possible, even for it being a Sunday. He met us in the park for our ceremony and he was very nice. I definitely recommend him!!

    Anthony was an INCREDIBLE officiant. He was extremely professional from day one of us getting to know one another over the phone and was in the end a HUGE part of why my ceremony ran how perfectly it did. I would recommend him to any bride who is looking for an officiant that will feel like a family friend in the end and that will do everything in his power to help your ceremony go the way you wnat it to. I was less stressed out because of him. I had guests all night saying how funny he was and they thought we had known him longer than just a few weeks. I am extremely glad I found and chose Anthony as our officiant.

    We just wanted a simple civil ceremony in the park near our home, to become legally married--we'll be having our church wedding next Spring. We found Anthony thru Thumbtack on Thurs & were married Friday morning. We needed only the bare minimum of services, in fact, almost too bare minimum that posed a little extra challenge. Anthony met the challenge without any problem whatsoever. We got exactly what we asked for, at a very reasonable price.
