    Wedding Officiant. Mrs. Matthews was everything I could have hoped for in a wedding officiant. She made the whole process easy and stress free. I would definitely recommebd her to any one looking for a wedding officiant. Very happy to have her be a part of that special day.

    Liz Matthews is amazing! Liz is an excellent Wedding Officiant and we were thrilled with the ceremony she helped us put together. She did a wonderful job on our wedding day and put everyone at ease. Our meeting with Liz prior to the wedding really helped us to get an idea of what we wanted to do. I can't say enough positive things about Liz!

    Liz was the perfect wedding officiant. She's knowledgeable, professional, yet fun and enthusiastic. Plus, her charming British accent is wonderful! If you want a ceremony that is personalized and not like everyone else's, choose Liz Matthews. You won't be sorry!

    Liz was the perfect officient for our weddi g, she answered all of our questions and made us feel like nothing could go wrong. We had planned a small park wedding. When we had an emergency arise, she was willing to work with us with venue, time, and script changes. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and kind person to perform our ceremony and share our day.

    This amazing couple coped so well with their very unexpected emergency. Family and friends rallied round and the wedding went beautifully. I wish them every happiness.

    We cannot say enough nice things about Liz's work as our wedding officiant. She was just wonderful, from meeting with us, responding to numerous emails as we worked through the details of the ceremony and following up on the marriage license with LA County. We put together our own ceremony using Liz as our guide. We also loved her British accent which lent a bit of class to our wedding! Her husband Anthony, himself a wedding officiant, offered wise counsel as well.

    Working with this very special couple was such a pleasure. The ceremony they put together was beautiful and an inspiration to me as their officiant. The depth of feeling between them and the love of family and friends radiated throughout their wedding.

    We had a small intimate wedding, liz was wonderful. She was very thorough in our meetings prior to wedding, the ceremony was memorable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Miguel and his lovely bride were just great and it was a pleasure to officiate on their special day. They had to deal with a pretty impressive summer storm on the day but their love and the warmth of their family and friends more than compensated.

First we thought we were going to do just a celebration because the time was too tight but after we spoke on the phone and she guided me through all the steps we needed to do and finally we did it yaay :) Thank you soo much again for your professionality and the excellent service. It was a memorable wedding.

    The wedding took place at The Big Red Sun in Venice. A charming and fun venue. Ken and his bride looked stunning on the day and I was so pleased to officiate their wedding. I wish them every happiness.

    Brenda put together a wonderful event for the lovely couple. I was delighted to be a part of their wedding and wish the bride and groom every happiness.

    She was very helpful, especially given such short notice. The service was exactly what we were looking for, and she kept us in the loop every step of the way.

    It was a pleasure to officiate the wedding for this lovely couple, and an honor as John was shortly setting off to serve his country. I wish them many years of happiness.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Ideally, we meet in person to get to know each other and go over the ceremony. We work on the ceremony by email and phone until it is just right.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I officiate smaller ceremonies, often at short notice, in the San Fernando Valley
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet with your officiant as soon as possible and get a good feel. This is the person who will be bringing the two of you together on your special day! I usually meet my couples in a convenient Starbucks for 30 minutes.
