Harry made our ceremony perfect and so many of our friends still comment about the awesome officiant.
He put us at ease, did all the directing and made everyone laugh. We didn't have a rehearsal and I was slightly worried about this but he said I should trust that he has been doing this for years...and he was so right.
Courteous, on time and a pleasure to have him as part of our day!

After an exhaustive search for a marriage commissioner in Vancouver, my husband and I finally decided on Harry Marusyk after he was recommended to us by our decorator. He was good, but there were 2 big disappointments that prevent me from giving him a higher ranking.
The good: Harry has a wonderful personality. He is an older gentleman so he has a charming, grandfatherly aura about him. He also has a wonderful sense of humor, and kept our guests entertained while waiting for the ceremony to start. Harry is also flexible and is more than happy to let you tweak his standard ceremony to incorporate readings, personalized vows, and other ceremonies.
He is happy to meet with you in advance or just converse over email and he will attend your rehearsal or give you a rehearsal guide if you want to do it yourself.
The bad: He isn't the quickest when it comes to communication. Once we booked him to do our ceremony, I emailed him a few times to finesse our ceremony, request feedback on my vows, and go over our rehearsal guide. More than once I had to send him multiple emails before he would get back to me. The worst was having to email him four times to get our rehearsal guide; he finally did send it to us the night before our 10am rehearsal. We wanted to incorporate a wine box ritual into our ceremony. After discussing it with him, providing him with a script, and his assurance that he had done it in the past, we did not anticipate any difficulties with it. On the day of, it was like he had completely forgotten about it. He ended up squishing it in at an awkward moment, he didn't perform the script we had given him nor explain what the ritual was about. It made what was supposed to be a meaningful ritual a throw-away event and a lot of our guests were completely confused by it.
So ya, some good points, some bad points. As long as you don't want anything too outside the box and are looking more for a warm personality than a detail-oriented officiant, Harry is a good pick.

Harry was perfect for me and my husband. He's an older gentleman but has a warm sense of humour and a gentleness to him. He was amazing with my flower girls and ring bearer and taughter them 'tricks' to help them walk down the aisle (which they did!). He also made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony. I had many family members in town from Italy and Harry actually spoke some words in Italian for them. Beautiful touch.
