I’m an ordained minister (think Rev. Camden on Seventh Heaven) working full time as a wedding officiant. I do non-denominational, nice "civil" (non-religious) and traditional religious ceremonies. I will meet with you to get acquainted and plan all the details – no unpleasant surprises! Big and small, traditional and not, next week or next year – not a problem. Finding an officiant can be tough. (You don’t want Rev. Lovejoy from the Simpsons, do you?) I’m a normal person who cares about people. If you ask me to do your wedding I promise to give you lots of TLC, to be a professional, and to do everything I can to make your wedding just what you want it to be. If you’d like more information, feel free to call or email me. Rev. William Britton, M. Div., Th.M. ("Pastor Bill")



Here's what some of my couples have said:



Dear Pastor Bill, Thank you so much for being a part of our special day! From the first time that we met, we were so comfortable with you and we knew that you were a perfect fit for us! We love your orgainized style and your personal touch made our wedding a success! We couldn't have done it without you! All our love, Cynthia and Felix



Dear Pastor Bill, We wanted to thank you so much for the very beautiful and unique ceremony that you performed for us on Friday. Everyone, and we mean everyone, raved about it and how it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever seen. We were so happy with it. We can't believe the whole day is over already though :( We can't wait to relive the ceremony when we see the video. So thank you again for all your preparation and attention to details. We are so pleased! Amber & Michael



Dear Pastor Bill, Lisa and I recently sat down to watch the DVD of our wedding day at the Oheka Castle, and we realized it has already been four quick and happy months since the wedding. ... The first time I spoke with you about how you conduct a wedding ceremony I knew you would be our officiant. I can remember describing you to Lisa as being organized, experienced, knowledgeable, and great for our ceremony. Of course, after our initial meeting in person, Lisa and I were in agreement that you would be the perfect person to provide the beautiful ceremony we'd desire; and you were. ... I know the two of us were very nervous especially in the moments leading up to the ceremony. I can speak for the both of us in saying that you had a calming effect on the two of us as we each met you at "the altar." We were able to enjoy everything we were experiencing during the ceremony especially the commitment we were promising each other before you. Lisa and I sincerely thank you .... Warm regards, Chris and Lisa Read less

Pastor Bill was all we could of hoped for and than some in a wedding officiant. He was extremely organized and gave us multiple options for our ceremony. He provided us with a traditional ceremony but with a modern edge as well ... I would most defiantly recommend him to any couples that are getting married !!

I liked Pastor Bill from the first phone call interaction. He seemed laid back, yet also clearly knowledgeable and professional. He was very responsive and we greatly appreciated the opportunity to meet in person prior to our wedding. During the meeting he expressed a genuine desire to get to know us and that was extremely refreshing.
We also really liked that he provided a great template from which to organize our wedding ceremony. The ceremony on our special day was absolutely lovely and we received many compliments about the personalized nature and how special it was.

I worried about finding a good officiant because neither my fiancé nor I had a pastor we knew personally so we worried about handing off this very important duty to a stranger. We put this task off for moths, and then we found Pastor Bill and we are so glad that he officiated our wedding on October 6th. Pastor Bill did a great job from beginning to end. His delivery was very warm and calm and above all the ceremony was extremely personal. One of the main reasons for this is that he took the time to meet with us beforehand to talk about love and marriage and how our own story could be worked into a ceremony. I couldn't have imagined a better, more personal or more well run ceremony. We had a really fun reception but most of our compliments came about how special the ceremony was. Thank you Pastor Bill!! If you are looking for an officiant, look no further....

Our wedding ceremony went perfect and we owe this all to Pastor Bill. Pastor Bill did an excellent job, he helped us feel comfortable and kept the ceremony beautiful. Our guests were raving how flawless the ceremony was and how unique our vows were. They also loved that Pastor Bill helped introduce a little humor into our ceremony, as both my wife and I had been dating for 15 years prior to tying the knot. Thanks again for everything, we highly recommend Pastor Bill!

I wish I could give higher ratings for Pastor Bill's responsiveness, professionalism and flexibility.

Left without a wedding officiant three weeks before the wedding, I scrambled to find someone and Pastor Bill's name came up several times under "recommended" or "best of".

I assumed he would be good but I didn't know what to expect until my fiance and I met him. He was friendly, funny, a good listener, open-minded and very patient. He seemed to "get us" right away and we could tell there was a comfortable, positive dynamic in the short meeting we had. Within 10-15 minutes we had decided that he would be the one to officiate us.

Once the decision was made, Pastor Bill made it as seamless as possible for me to do the rest. He handled the paperwork (which was sooo easy to fill out!) send us several examples of customizing our ceremony (which impressed me because I had no idea what we wanted to include and we knew it had to be short and funny), helped me edit my choices down and rehearsed on his own. He was so easy to work with and understood what we were looking for and adapted his style perfectly to suit us.

The ceremony was perfect! It was short (10 minutes), funny and personal and a lot of our guests mentioned that it was one of the best they had been to!

Looking back on my wedding, there are vendors I liked and ones that weren't so great and Pastor Bill stands out as someone who was invaluable to our day.

Pastor Bill was very pleasant to work with. When my fiance (now husband) and I met with him the first time, we already knew we wanted him to be our officiant. He was very organized, well-prepared, and knowledgeable. We had a ton of questions regarding our ceremony since we wanted a non-denominational ceremony with some twists from a traditional Catholic wedding. We were able to do that, which made our ceremony unique and memorable. Pastor Bill and I worked on our ceremony templates, details, and contracts all by email, which made everything convenient and simple. He is very professional and punctual, a big plus on my book! Thanks again, Pastor Bill!!! - Liz & Brian

When searching for an officiant we wanted someone who was professional with a great sense of humor. We were lucky enough to find both in Pastor Bill. Pastor Bill was great to work with and tailored the ceremony to fit exactly what we wanted. The day of the wedding he was punctual and executed the ceremony beautifully. We are very happy he was a part of our special day!

What more can one extremely happy bride and groom say about the caring services of Pastor William Britton. We chose to have a non-denominational ceremony and Pastor Bill fit the bill (sry about that ;)). It started with an initial meeting so we can all come together and decide if this works for all parties involved. Pastor Bill cares about who he marries. Several follow-ups via email or phone was the next order of business. Our ceremony was totally tailored for us. With Pastor Bills help, we were able to formulate a ceremony which Pastor Bill delivered with such grace. His demeanor is calm and peaceful with a great sense of humor. Pastor Bill will be with you from beginning to end. All of our guest had such high praise for Pastor Bill. He is the man you want to deliver your vows before God. EXCEPTIONAL!!!

He worked with us to create the perfect ceremony for our wedding. Many of our guests commented on what a truly meaningful ceremony it was.

Pastor Bill Britton of Clergy on Call Ministries filled a very large gap in our otherwise tightly assembled mix of wedding day vendors. My husband and I are both Roman Catholic, complete with an ordained priest as a family member, ... but since my husband was divorced we were compelled to search hither & yon for another type of celebrant. As the big day approached and we filed for our marriage license, we realized that we STILL had not identified an officiant. I confess we did panic a bit and resorted to a totally random google search that led us to Pastor Bill. Happily we were quite thrilled with his services, and we would highly recommend him to other engaged couples in distress over this same issue ! Maura & David
