James is great, he makes you feel at ease and he bothers to tailor the service to suit your interests and personalities. We did virtually everything by email from the UK. After 20 years together we decided to get married, so James made the ceremony match our long history. We had a simple service just for two in June 2016 at Bettilou's Inn in Mendocino with John Birchard as photographer.
James made the purpose of the ceremony not feel silly because only two of you are there. To finish off he gave us our service in a little booklet which he hand made. You really can't go wrong. Paul and Amanda

I can't say enough good things about James. He performed my daughter's wedding ceremony with such kindness, professionalism and absolute joy. He obviously loves what he does and we all agreed that the wedding wouldn't have been as special without him. I recommend him highly!!

James Sibbet was thoughtful and thorough in helping us (via email) through the preparation for our small ceremony. But the best was yet to come, when we met James Sibbet on the day of the ceremony. He bonded with us immediately, set us at ease, and guided us through a very meaningful and memorable celebration of our union. James Sibbet was an integral part of a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.

James was the officiant for our wedding in Mendocino. The elopement package we used arranged for all our vendors, so we didn't have a chance to "shop around"; he was hired before we met him! In this kind of situation, it would have been easy for him to phone it in. But that is definitely not the way James approaches the service he provides! He was warm, responsive, genuinely interested in getting to know us, committed to creating a ceremony that reflected who we are as people, and most importantly full of good humor. He has a steady, calming presence that was very welcome on such a nerve-wracking day, and he put my husband and I at ease immediately.

I particularly appreciated how gracious he was during the planning process, when he sent us a draft copy of the ceremony he'd prepared and we returned it to him almost completely rewritten. I think only one or two sentences of his original draft remained! Instead of being insulted, he thanked us for introducing him to a new poem we'd chosen; it was very clear that what he valued most was creating a wedding ceremony that was right for us.

I feel very lucky that our elopement package connected us with James! He's absolutely wonderful.

James made our wedding day perfect.
My husband and I are very private people and nervous when in front of large crowds. James brought a level of comfort for us on our special day. From his warm smile to his beautiful words at our ceremony, there truly was no better man to be there with us. Being nervous on your wedding day is natural but before I walked down the aisle, James' quick smile and kind words put me at ease. This may sound a bit cheesy but it is very true, James is one of the sweetest men I have ever met and he absolutely made our wedding day perfect. Thank you!

From our first email and through the actual ceremony, James was very supportive and accommodating. His ceremony suggestions were fabulous; providing us a ceremony of more than just "I do(s)", and he was 'spot on' with capturing the essence of what a marriage commitment meant to us at this time in our lives (60+). During the ceremony, his demeanor was friendly yet 'official' - just what was needed! We highly recommend James for your wedding ceremony!

James served as the officiant for our small wedding in Mendocino County. He was recommended to us by the small hotel where the ceremony was held. James was very accommodating, attentive, and friendly. He provided his suggested ceremony and made it clear we could make any additions or revisions that we wanted. During the ceremony, he incorporated info that he gleaned from conversations that he had with us. His reading was beautiful and really added to our special day. I would recommend James to anyone in that area in need of a quality officiant.

I recently had the opportunity to work with James and I cannot say enough wonderful things about him and his beautiful elopement ceremony. As a wedding planner, I've seen hundreds of ceremonies and I was truly touched by James and his warm and loving energy. He put so much thought and detail into his ceremony for our lovely couple - I can honestly say that it was the best I've heard from a professional officiant. Then, to top it off, he had a copy of the ceremony for our couple in a neat little booklet. We can't wait to work with James again!
