Jane Halton (she/her)

I did my first wedding for two friends in 2002, followed by a myriad of cousins’ weddings and a few weddings for friends from my swim team.  When I first joined Young Hip and Married in 2013, I wasn’t sure if I would like doing weddings for ‘strangers.’ But it didn’t take long (one wedding!) for me to realize I love it.  Not to mention, by the time we are done planning a wedding ceremony together, we won’t feel like strangers.

I’ve done large fancy weddings in hotels, casual backyard ceremonies, sandy beachfront elopements and I’ve even canoed into a ceremony! The best thing about each of them is that they represented what the couple wanted.  I’d love to work with you to help create a ceremony you love.  Have no idea what you want? No problem!  Know exactly what you’d like? Speak right up. I’m listening.

I will be professional and calm (because most people are a bit nervous in front of everyone).  Whether you want a light-hearted and fun ceremony or something more romantic and serious, I’m happy to create what you desire.  I’d say my natural style is professional with a side of humor. You’ll be confident I know what I’m doing but I won’t steal the show.

Choosing a wedding officiant is a big deal!  We’ve all been to the long boring ceremony where the officiant reads the same script and clearly doesn’t know the couple. But I want to hear your story, what makes you tick and what your hopes are for your wedding ceremony.  

I’d love to get together for a chat and make sure you get all your questions answered.  Mainly, I want you to feel totally comfortable walking down the aisle toward me!  

I wear lots of hats here at Young Hip & Married. Not only am I an officiant, I hire and train all of the officiants and head up our pre-marriage/relationship coaching program. No two days are the same, just like no two couples are the same.

When I’m not marrying people, I love spending time with my husband and two boys. We enjoy going to the beach, making pizza and hanging out in our East Van neighbourhood.

Feel free to read some of my reviews below and ask as many questions as you’d like.

Testimonials

  • Jane, thank you very much for being there for us. We were very satisfied with our little ceremony. Everything was just what we imagined. Thanks again for your efforts!

    Lucy & Roy
  • Thanks Erica and Jane! They were super friendly, professional and accommodating. Our wedding was simple and quick. Erica was our photographer and she took some amazing photos that an amateur photographer would not be able to replicate. I highly recommend their services.

    Brandon & Eryl
  • Our experience with YH&M was great – from booking to the day of the ceremony, they were professional and made the whole experience totally stress-free. We especially had a wonderful experience with Jane (our officiant) and Emily (our photographer)! Jane, our officiant, was organized, thoughtful and supportive throughout the whole process from booking to the day. She made everything so easy by communicating with us before the ceremony, and guided a smooth ceremony on the day. Emily, our photographer, made us feel comfortable from the get go, even though we tend to be camera shy folks! She gave us direction and made us feel totally at ease on the day, and we couldn’t have been more grateful! She provided us with a sneak peek of our photos promptly, and they turned out perfectly. Thank you YH&M, Jane and Emily for making our day so special!

    Jessica & Eric
  • Young Hip & Married has a fantastic team of people who truly care about the couples that they work with. My communication with Jackie-Deane was always fast and helpful despite ongoing uncertainties due to the pandemic. And it was such a pleasure having Jane be a part of the most important moment of our lives. One of my best friends married us, but Jane was there to oversee the signing of the certificate and she is a genuine and beautiful person who I was so glad to have for that very special moment.

    Cherlyn & Casey
  • Jane Halton was our officiant for our wedding and she was fantastic! She was very much on-top of working with us to create the timeline. We were quite slow to respond to emails at times and she was very patient. Our ceremony went off perfectly as she had laid it out! The entire process was so smooth with Young Hip and Married and we can’t thank Jane enough!!

    Gerard & Letty
  • Me and my fiancé had a very small wedding together in Canada which was a massive change to our original plan of being married in Mexico due to the covid restrictions. YHM were amazing, they updated us with regular information and responded to our questions in a timely manner. They adjusted the package so the bride could have a bridal walk down the aisle as her family couldn’t be there (bride from England and husband from Mexico) they helped to make the day extremely special. Jane our officiant was wonderful, she made the ceremony very welcoming, it didn’t feel rushed and she helped us to feel calm. Every word Jane said she related to our situation and made us feel that the day was truly all about us. It was the most perfect day considering the circumstances & we were happy to have YHM a part of our special day !! We would highly recommend !!

    Stephanie & Brandon
  • Jane was our officiant and she did a fantastic job! Our ceremony was fun and sweet and all our family and friends LOVED it! People said it was very unique and refreshing to have such a thoughtful ceremony… my husband and I would recommend paying a little extra to have someone who is invested in YOUR ceremony and gets to know you; it makes it so so special. Thank you Jane and YH&M.

    Jen & Sean
  • We did not know at the time of planning our wedding how important the choice of the officiant was. Our ceremony was unique and customized for us and truly the highlight of the big day! We recently got married in Nov 2020 during the height of the second wave lockdown here in BC. It was an extremely stressful time to say the least as our venue closed its doors 7 days out from the wedding and we went from a 50 person wedding to having just our families there. It was challenging but our amazing Officiant JANE was supportive and worked with us to make changes on the fly. We ended up pushing the wedding out one week to a new venue and she was able to accommodate us. In terms of the ceremony, we wanted to have something that highlighted both of our different cultures and again Jane did a great job of working with us on those pieces. We also wanted the ceremony to feel spiritual and special and Jane hit the spot so right. She was easy to work with, responsive, fun, and professional! We were so happy and would certainly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant.

    N & D
  • We had a great experience with Young Hip & Married and are so thankful we chose them for our small, intimate elopement ceremony. Communication was timely and efficient and everything felt effortless. Our officiant, Jane, was very professional and helpful along the way. Thank you for making this experience easy and enjoyable and for your wonderful energy!

    Briana Garelli
  • Jane was amazing. Throughout the whole process she was a treat to work with and really added to our perfect day.

    Alex & Cody
  • Awesome folks. Helped us through each step of the process. Thanks to YMH folks!

    Jean-Philippe & Julie
  • Jane, thanks so much for all the work you did for us. Our guests really enjoyed the ceremony and the customized touches you added. More importantly though, you made Kathleen and I feel at ease on what was arguably the biggest day of our lives. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
    Wes & Kathleen
  • Jane was an amazing officiant. Emotions were high on my wedding and the way my husband and I cope is with comedy. Jane was able to adapt to our chemistry and made us feel very comfortable. There was great communication prior to the ceremony as well.

    Jenny & Nathan
  • When Brian and I got engaged, one of the first things we did was hire an officiant from YH&M. We watched all the video bios and chose Jane as our officiant for the big day!

    We wanted out ceremony to be light and fun, while also being sincere and heartfelt. Basically, we wanted it all! And boy, did Jane deliver! There were giggles & tears, with a side of nerdiness. It was perfect.

    Everyone that attended our ceremony was able to tell how much work Jane had put into actually getting to KNOW us. We’re proud and happy to say that our ceremony was not generic. It was unique, just like us! Star Wars references and all!

    We would recommend Young Hip and Married in a heartbeat! Words are not enough to express the magic that these people create! 🙂

    Mellie + Brian
  • We have had such an amazing experience with YH&M! We were able to link with Jane who was the very best helping us out along the way and having such great communication with us. She lead our ceremony so beautifully we were tearing from the very beginning with her words. We were able to have help with the videos provided for making our custom vows too! The weekly reminders to complete the vow course was a nice touch. Thank you guys so much for everything we appreciate you! We will definitely be spreading the word on YH&M

    Ian & Kirstin
  • I cannot speak highly enough of Young Hip and Married. Professional and accommodating while being super affordable, they managed to roll with the restrictions on indoor dining being announced the day before our wedding and still helped make it the best day of our lives.

    Chris & Carissa
  • Jane Halton from YH&M officiated our day, and I can not recommend her more highly! She had a great presence – keeping us calm and in the moment – and everyone in attendance commented about how lovely her ceremony was. The whole process of hiring Jane was seamless, the team at YH&M really know what they’re doing. If you’re looking for an officiant for your wedding or elopement, look no further!

    Kali & Mitchel
  • Thank you for making the day exactly how we wanted! Your team of planners, officiants, and photographers are amazing.

    Chelanne & Chris
  • We cannot thank Jane Halton enough for helping make our ceremony so beautiful! Never in a million years could we have imagined being so comfortable standing up there in front of 160 people but Jane made all of our fears disappear. She created a beautiful ceremony that fit our personalities perfectly and allowed us to enjoy the moment. We absolutely loved every aspect of the process working with Jane. I would highly recommend her!

    Olivia & Anthony
  • We loooved how Young Hip and Married was so simple and straight forward with planning our special day. Jane was our officiant and she was amazing. Emily Nicole was our photographer; we totally recommend her if you want your pictures to blow your mind. They both made us feel at ease and kept the process easy, simple and fun. We loved every minute of it.

    Hamas & Simon
  • Jane was our officiant, and she was just perfect. She made us feel comfortable, was very communicative, provided ceremony script options and allowed us to write our own, and was smiling and laughing the whole way.

    Erica was our photographer, and it was obvious that she is very experienced. She was so much fun to work with! We got way more than was expected, and felt we were in good hands.

    All in all, Young Hip & Married was just ideal for our small wedding of 20 guests. I sincerely recommend them for their ease, experience, great attitudes, and very reasonable prices. Thank you!

    Matt Little
  • We are so glad we decided to use Young Hip and Married for our special day. The process was very easy to complete and they were very responsive which is very important. Our officiant was Jane and she was so sweet and amazing. She checked in a couple times before the wedding day which was really nice. On the wedding day, Jane did an amazing job with crafting the vows to suit us perfectly. Wedding day was a huge success. Thanks Jane!

    Kelly & Eva
  • My husband (hihi still new to this) and I had to plan our wedding in two weeks (gatherings were forbidden in Quebec because of Covid and we really wanted to get married on our anniversary date!). On top of being referred to us by a photographer, Young Hip & Married was at the top of the results when we searched for an officiant in Vancouver! That’s because they’re so great to deal with! Jane asked us for all the necessary information beforehand so that the ceremony itself would be a breeze and she provided us with a google doc that explained how the ceremony would go so that there are no surprises! Jane was very nice and professional! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

    Laury & Miguel
  • Jane was a gem. She was easy going and relate-able without being too present. The ceremony was quick but still managed to hold a lifetime of emotion. I couldn’t have imagined things going more smoothly. The YH&M service itself was easy, convenient, attentive, and affordable.

  • We eloped as we wanted a small and intimate wedding with no stress. The best decision we made was to have Young Hip & Married involved in planning our day. Our officiant was Jane and she was fantastic. Professional, friendly and personable – making our day even more special. Although we did not meet Jane prior to the wedding, she was available via email, text and phone. She helped us with our ceremony sequence and wedding vows. The ceremony was exactly what we imagined. We also went with photography through YH&M and had Erica. We loved Erica. Great energy and very personable. We can’t wait to see the photos! If you are considering a small wedding then don’t look anywhere else – go with YH&M!

    Nelia
  • We recently did our wedding through Young Hip & Married and it was honestly perfect. The wedding was small, intimate, easy to set up, and went off flawlessly. We wanted something COVID-friendly with immediate family, and Erica gave us a few solid options and packages – we eventually landed on Stanley Park as the location. Erica, Jane, and co were super friendly, responsive, and provided easy documentation and guidance throughout the whole process. Honestly, everything was just super easy and really helped de-stress the event.

    The wedding itself was great. Erica helped us arrange and time everything, and was a great photographer throughout. Jane was a great officiant and did a simple but meaningful ceremony with vows and rings exchanged. If you want to do an intimate, family-focused wedding – can’t recommend Young Hip & Married enough!

    Shay & Rachael
  • YH&M is exactly what we were looking for, filling the gap between a religious ceremony and a Marriage Commissioner. Jane Halton officiated for us, and her style and charm really won over our guests. Thanks!

    Matthew Bergmann
  • Such an amazing experience! We had switched our wedding plans several times due to the pandemic and decided in the end to elope. The team at Young Hip and Married were so great to work with and special shout out to Jane for being making our wedding still feel special. Would highly recommend!

    Nicole & Connor
  • Getting married during a global pandemic is far from easy. YHM acknowledged this and worked with us, ensured we had a physical distancing and safety plan in place, and made our day more special than I ever imagined. Jane, our officiant, was absolutely lovely, and walked us through each stage of the elopement process. Thank you so much for taking some stress off of us as we took our loving relationship to the next level.

    Bran & Mikah
  • Jane was the officiant for our wedding and she did such an amazing job. She was very detailed, attentive, answered all our questions, was flexible and knowledgable in editing our scripts, and provided lots of resources for helping us write our vows. Her professionalism definitely showed at our ceremony rehearsal! She knew where certain people should stand, how/when the music should be played, etc. Her speech was perfect – touching, personal, and funny. She was completely respectful of our needs and wants for our ceremony and made everything 100% about us. We will happily recommend Young Hip & Married to all our friends!

    Bee & Simon
  • On time, very professional and very accommodating to our situation. Made the day great!

    Melanie & Bryan
  • We are so thankful we went with Young, Hip and Married for our wedding day. Jane was an awesome officiant and made the day very special and Emily the photographer went above and beyond.

    Thanks again to everyone at Young Hip and Married for making our day unforgettable.

  • The service offered by young hip and married was beyond expectation. By far pleased with how they went above and beyond for us to make this a great day. Highly recommended!
    Damon & Bobae
  • I’m so glad we went with these guys. They were so committed to giving us a personal wedding that was us. Jane was awesome and reached out to family and friends to find out stories about us. She also helped me and my partner with writing vows and giving us pointers. She was very open to hearing our thoughts and was soooo easy to work with. On the day, she was incredible! She kept everything fun and light and intimate which is exactly what we wanted. I had people coming up to me and saying that it was the most beautiful and funny ceremony they’ve been to and that was all down to Jane. She kept us right, guided us along the way and made us laugh. I would highly recommend these guys.
    Sara-Jo & Dáire
  • Jane Halton was very professional and laid back. She was extremely helpful and made our wedding an excellent one. Couldn’t be any happier!! Thank you, Jane.

    Rhys Smith
  • Young Hip and Married was so easy to work with as we planned our elopement only a month and a half out from the event! The staff were all friendly and easy to communicate with. Our officiant Erika wrote a BEAUTIFUL ceremony for us that included our sons, and at the last minute when she was unable to make it due to a family emergency, Jane stepped in immediately and saved the day! She read Erika’s ceremony and helped it all feel incredibly sweet and personal (yes we all cried). Thanks to all of you for making our day that much more special!

    Rhiannon Jones
  • Truly had an expectational experience. Our officiant, Jane, was very patient and kind. Me and my fiancée were pretty nervous but Jane helped us calm down and enjoy the whole experience. Our photographer, Emily, is not only an experienced and talented person but also very friendly. I would strongly recommend YH&M to everyone. They made our big day very special and enjoyable.

    Manjot Kaur
  • Jane was super attentive, emailing back and forth to make sure the ceremony proceedings were what we wanted them to be. On the day of, she was calm (which made me calm!) and made sure we took time to enjoy the moment. Would highly recommend her and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking to have a small, but still great, wedding!

    Laura Collins
  • Jane was a huge help from our first consult with her through writing our ceremony and vows. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions about how to structure our ceremony with very helpful detail. Also the ceremony she wrote was great for us, we got a lot of comments from guests saying it was the best ceremony they had ever attended!

    Jen & Dean
  • Since day one Jane was extremely easy to get along with and talk to. Jane always replied right away via email or text message. After the first meeting we knew she would be part of the reason our day would be so special. Jane presents herself in a professional, yet fun manner. We would highly recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to any of our friends and family.

  • Jane was absolutely amazing officiating my wedding. She’s so easy going, and personalized our ceremony brilliantly to suit the exact mood and style we wanted. Worth every penny. Thanks again Jane!

    Emily & Tyler
  • So easy and accommodating. The perfect people to help us with our elopement and have little to no stress doing so. I highly recommend their services.

    Clint & Ashley
  • Jane was fantastic and flexible. She made our day seamless and wrote a beautiful ceremony perfect for us. Jane was lovey to deal with and answered all of our questions. Would highly recommend her and this company to anyone looking for an easy stress free ceremony!

    Megan
  • Everything from the planning to the wedding day went so smoothly. Our wedding day was perfect!! Jane was fabulous and so easy to work with!! Would highly recommend!!

    Kylie & Andrew
  • We had a great experience with Jane. She gave us lots of resources so we could figure out what we wanted for our ceremony. We were able to choose our vows from the great list that she gave us and she walked us through each detail and listened to all of our wants and revisions to the general template that she had. It was important that our ceremony was simple, short, and intimate – which meant it was more informal than your regular ceremony. Many of our guests said it was perfect – that it wasn’t so long and full of pomp as other weddings – but felt special and reflected who we were as individuals and a couple. Neither of us are religious, and my wife feels that some traditions go against her feminist beliefs. Jane ensured our voices were heard and the result was a ceremony that had us laughing, had us crying, and made us remember that this moment doesn’t last long – so we have to enjoy and savor everyone minute.

    Pam & Len
  • We commend them for the exceptional services we received in the midst of the Covid Pandemic 2020!!

    Lynn & Peter
  • We had this team booked for us through a ceremony package and the whole experience was great! We received a full overview of how the day was going to go and a step by step about writing vows etc Overall it was all super easy which I think everyone wants on their wedding day!

    Dariya & Justin
  • Young Hip & Married were incredible. They help connect you with an officiant; we had Jane for our special day. She laid everything out clear and simple and allowed us to make adjustments to the ceremony.

    Jane had great communication and was always quick to respond. She had great suggestions when we felt lost or didn’t know what to do. Young Hip & Married also offer the option of helping set up pre-marriage counselling and tell you where you can get a marriage license. The communication was incredible and extremely helpful. They took the stress out of everything!

    Bree & David
  • Our experience with young hip and married was fantastic. We were paired with Jane who made sure our ceremony fit us as a couple. We were able to explain to her how we wanted our guests to feel at our wedding and she did exactly that. Everyone said it was heartfelt and romantic. She also went as far to use some readings we liked and reached out to our friends to get to know us better. She was with us through the whole process, beginning to after the ceremony. We can’t recommend this company enough.

    Emily & Mitch
  • We went through this company for our elopement and they were great! Everyone was really quick to respond to emails, and answer any questions we had. Jane the officiant was amazing; we changed our vows last minute and she was super nice about it and made the switch almost immediately. Clint, the photographer, was great! He suggested poses and saw details in things we never would have thought of. We can’t wait to see the pictures! The only thing I would have changed would be longer on the mountain (we did the helicopter elopement), but in saying that we did know the time limitations before hand, it just went by super super quickly in reality! Thanks again for everything.

    Taylor & Jordan
  • My wife, Teresa, and I are incredibly happy with our experience with Young Hip & Married. Everything was so well coordinated and absolutely painless. Rebecca helped connect us to Jane, our officiant, and Clint, our photographer, after letting us describe the kind of ceremony we wanted. Jane officiated beautifully, adding wonderful and intimate touches to our vows. Clint managed to capture so much of our essence as a couple. His beautiful shots will be cherished forever by us. We cannot recommend this company enough. They have a human approach to their business and made us feel special and fully part of the entire process. Thank you so much for everything 🙂

    Michel & Teresa
  • Jane was our officiant from Young Hip & Married, she was incredibly patient with us and very receptive to all of our input and always responded swiftly to any questions or concerns we had. She took a very hands on approach with the ceremony’s proceedings and there was plenty of dialogue back and forth on what was to be included in the ceremony We were going for a very “feelsy” ceremony and Jane achieved that for us very well. She made the ceremony all that we hoped it would be. We would absolutely recommend Jane and Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day.

    Robert & Megan
  • Our officiant was Jane! To keep it short & sweet, I think it was a little daunting to have to explain our relationship to someone, anyone. We didn’t have a theme, we don’t realllyy have any extreme activities we do together. We’re the Netflix and chill, get coffee, be with our family & friends couple and Jane didn’t bat an eye. She got it, she wrote it, we made little to zero corrections and she killed it at the ceremony. Most importantly she kept the attention of our guests, and made sure they knew how much we loved them too. Also, she’s great at keeping secrets (we had a surprise wedding). And I realized it must have been interesting to write something where we didn’t want her to talk about marriage itself (lots of divorces there that night) and just us. So thank you Jane, it was everything we could have Asked for. Also, they made a welcome video when you inquire and it’s the loveliest touch.

    Kerstyn & Kody
  • We’re glad we came across Young, Hip and Married and worked with Jane as our wedding officiant. We came to Jane with a very specific idea about a Jewish/secular wedding ceremony, and she jumped right on board. At the start of the planning process she had us fill out a short answer form with questions about us as a couple, how we envisioned the ceremony and what was important to us. This was a valuable aid for us to think about the event. When we wrote the draft of our ceremony, Jane was helpful at making sure the different parts of our ceremony fit together into a whole that was understandable for our guests, flowed well, and was a good mix of explanation and action. She provided an experienced editorial voice that helped us clear up details like who would read which blessing, or whether one part of the ceremony was taking up too much time. The final product turned out beautifully. We had guests comment that they’d never attended a more heartfelt ceremony.
    Jane was also a neutral centre of authority, which was very much welcome, as both our parents are divorced. During both the rehearsal and the big day itself, she was organized, calm and projected the right mix of solemnity and cheerfulness. Thanks for sharing our wedding day with us!
    Sara & Art
  • Working with Young Hip and Married was such a wonderful and easy going experience. They provided tons of useful advice such as how to write the best vows and offered many options so that we could have a ceremony exactly how we envisioned! (Which in our case was a standing intimate ceremony with 8 of our family members) We had Jane as our officiant and she was absolutely lovely and made our wishes come to life.

    Alia & Shawn
  • Jane was our wedding officiant. She is one most likely to gather a huge crowd whenever she talks. She is inspiring and professional on her approach. Hence, our wedding went well as planned. It was a simple garden wedding at Vandusen Botanical Garden, but still it was too magical. Thanks to all your preparations and efforts to make our wedding such a huge success. Another person to thank is Clint, the photographer. He was the wonderful person who assisted us professionally when to take our pose. He was excellent at his job. He delivered as promised and his pictures were magnificent. Couldn’t ask for any other person to take our pictures on our most memorable day. Lastly, thanks to your company, Young Hip & Married. More power to you guys, and God bless! All smiles from us.

    Reman & Myra
  • Young Hip & Married were SO easy to work with. We’re in Australia and submitted an enquiry about eloping before travelling to Canada. They got straight back to us with a personalised video and all the details we needed. It was made super simple – all we had to do was pick a time and location; they did the rest! We wanted a simple, very casual ceremony with just us. We met the celebrant (Jane ) and photographer (Emily) at the park we chose and the ceremony and photos were all done within an hour. It was perfect!

    Gabrielle & Lincoln
  • Thank you so much to Jane at Young Hip & Married, the experience from start to finish was great. Jane shared ideas, resources and her script with us. I felt like we were able to co-create the tone, atmosphere and language that mattered to us as we made our promises. Most of our communication happened via email and Google docs which worked really well for us. Jane was really flexible and responsive to questions and changes. Most important to us was that Jane has a really lovely presence and led us and our family & friends through the ceremony in a warm, thoughtful, and beautiful way. The ceremony was exactly what we hoped it would be. Thank you so much Jane!

    Christie & Matt
  • Best option for elopement! We decided to elope before I can start working again so we decided to hire Young Hip and Married and get their wedding plus photography package. One of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Despite the busy popular summer wedding months, they were able to respond to my questions in a timely manner. All my questions and concerns where answered. Our officiant Jane was lovely with great tips on how to make your own vows and our photographer Erica Miller was so sweet and patient with us. If you want a hassle-free elopement with photographs to remember your wedding, I highly recommend getting the services of Young Hip and Married. They provide officiants and great photographers.

    Kenta & Christian
  • Jane Halton was an excellent, efficient, very professional wedding officiant. Our wedding was everything we wanted. The service was what we wanted, and Jane arranged everything perfectly.

    Sharon & Libby
  • Using Young Hip & Married was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning process. Our officiant, Jane, was easy to work with and made us feel excited and comfortable. The ceremony was totally “us” and we received many comments and compliments about how engaging our ceremony was and how she made everyone feel at ease. If you are debating about using them for your wedding, don’t! Their services are totally worth it! Thanks Jane!

    Chelsea & Ryan
  • Jane Halton recently officiated our wedding. She was perfect to work with. We had a vision in mind for our ceremony and learned throughout the process with her that what we actually wanted, wasn’t what we thought we wanted when we had started the process. Our ceremony turned out perfectly, and that was in large part as a result of her guidance, patience and flexibility with us.

    Elyse
  • We were looking for an officiant for our elopement, and came across Young Hip & Married, where we were introduced to our officiant Jane Halton. Jane is a wonderful officiant; she also responds promptly to questions, and checks in if you book your wedding in advance. Jane also made our low key elopement a memorable experience with her uplifting, positive and joyful nature. Thank you YH&M for appointing her to us 🙂

    Michelle
  • We knew we wanted a ceremony that was playful and true to our personalities. Jane with Young Hip and Married was not only friendly and professional, but delivered 110% on this requirement. All of our guests commented on how genuine, heartfelt and fun our entire ceremony was. We couldn’t be happier!

    Sarah & Dan
  • Thank you, Jane!!! It was such a special day. Everything was perfect and we wouldn’t have done anything differently! The ceremony was our favorite part of the day and that was the part I was most nervous about, thank you for everything! Everyone was raving about how great you were.

    Tara & Kevin
  • Our officiant was Jane and she was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were doing the small elopement package and she was able to walk us through what was going to happen before we started which really calmed down my nerves. We also had great service from Tara; she helped us set up the time with Jane and was supper helpful throughout the entire process. We planned the wedding in a week so everything was at the last minute and this company was kind and willing to find us an officiant so we could make our special day possible. Thank you so much!! Great people and great company!!

    Lucy Reid
  • Jane our officiant was wonderful! She was quick with replying and so patient with us as we were not the easiest in communicating back with her. Our guests were very impressed on how personal the ceremony was and it did not feel long like the traditional ceremonies we have been to. The whole experience with YH&M was beyond expectation and we would 100% recommend working with them.

    Helen & Brian
  • We had Jane as our officiant and she was lovely to work with! She was very helpful, providing lots of resources to write our own vows but in the end, I decided it would be better for us to just do the standard vows she provided us with and it turned out very well! Short and sweet – thank you Jane and the YHM team for helping us on our special day, we definitely won’t forget it!

    Jade & Murray
  • Jane is a great officiant! We are very happy to have her marrying us. Even it was rainy on our elopement day, she did a great job on keeping our elopement run smoothly. The vow course provided by YHM was very useful. It provided us so much inspiration on writing our vows. Highly recommend to any couples who are ready for your next chapter together!

  • We just want to thank you for making it so easy for us to get married!  Jane, thank you for the tips and and the short but meaningful ceremony!  Without you, we won’t be married legally (literally)! Erica, thank you for being patient with us.  I know it’s an elopement but thank you for putting up with our antics.  The location you suggested was so beautiful and serene!  Now we can always go back there and remember.

    You both were very lovely and welcoming.  Everyone felt comfortable and happy.   My husband who is very shy was raving about how great you guys were and he doesn’t  even do that with me! Thank you Young Hip and Married for making my elopement possible!  Despite the busy season, communicating was easy and all my questions were answered fast. Again, thank you!

    Christian & Kenta
  • When we were looking for someone to officiate our wedding, we didn’t exactly know what (and who) we were looking for. But when we met Jane for our initial consult, she was warm and reassuring. We were charmed!
    In the hours and days after the wedding, our family and friends told us how wonderful the ceremony was. Jane gave us everything we needed to personalize the wedding. She carefully considered our input, working around the readings we chose. And when the time came, she set the mood for our guests on the special day with some beautiful words and a narrative that touched everyone.
    We couldn’t have made a better decision for our most important day.
    Jason & Rebecca
  • Jane from Young, Hip and Married was an absolute dream to work with. She did such an incredible job and we are so happy with how our ceremony turned out. She was so good that we even had family come up to us asking if we knew her – she made it that personal and intimate. 10/10!

    Carly & Justin
  • Working with Young Hip and Married made our wedding so smooth and stress free. Last minute we had to move our wedding date up by several months but there were no issues; they really took care of us. Jane and Erica were so wonderful and accommodating; communication was impeccable!

    Chantal & Taylor
  • Jane, Clint, and Rebecca were the most helpful and accommodating during the planning of our COVID wedding. One of our family members had some last minute health issues and the three of them were so kind and eager to make things work for us – even if it meant rescheduling twice! To top it off, we got married on the windiest day ever, but Jane and Clint were such troopers through it all. Our families both commented on how much they loved Jane’s attitude and words during the ceremony. We were absolutely blown away (pun intended) by the photos we received from Clint! My hair was so wind blown and we were both cold, so we didn’t have high hopes that the photos would turn out – but we were so wrong! Clint used the surroundings to provide us with a range of photos that felt fresh and intimate. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was eager to take photos wherever we wanted. All in all – we definitely recommend Young Hip & Married!

    Maddy & Jonathan
  • It was a pleasure working with Jane and having her officiate our wedding. She has a calming presence which put us at ease, making it much easier to say our vows. We loved her words and would definitely recommend her.

    Kajal & Ian
  • It was such a huge blessing to have you as our guide throughout our wedding and we couldn’t have imagined it without you! Everything was perfect. We are forever grateful for that day and all your help through the process and so very thankful for all you’ve done.

    Steven & Aleesha
  • When we first met with Jane we were a bit overwhelmed at the idea of planning our ceremony. Through her interview process and subsequent conversations with us she was able to design us a custom ceremony built around our relationship, personalities and beliefs. She kept us on track throughout the whole process and her attention to detail and experience were extremely valuable as it allowed us to focus on other aspects of the wedding. People were blown away by her modern approach and the way she managed to keep people engaged throughout the ceremony. The personalized reading she wrote for us, based on input she gathered from our friends and family, is something we will always remember.

    Nathan & Sarah
  • Young Hip and Married made our elopement super special! Rebecca sent us this amazing video message when we inquired about arranging our elopement that immediately connected us. Jane provided amazing resources which helped us prepare our vows and felt like she had known us for years. Clint was the photographer they helped to arrange and he was amazing. The photos he captured were perfect for us to commemorate the day and share with family. Despite the impact of the pandemic, the warmth, support, and follow-up by Young Hip & Married made our day truly special. We are so happy that we found them and would highly recommend it for anyone looking to elope or have a wedding ceremony. Thank you!

    Damon & Andrew
  • Having a personalized ceremony was extremely important to us. Have you ever been to a wedding that left you with confusion, that was emotionless or maybe one that simply didn’t reflect who the couple really was? We have been to plenty of those, and we can tell you that Young Hip & Married is the complete opposite! We had the pleasure of working with Jane, who drafted up the most personal ceremony we could have ever imagined. From quick email responses, unrelenting enthusiasm and authentic happiness for our upcoming wedding we could not have made a better decision having Jane as our officiant. It’s no wonder than Jane won “Best Wedding Officiant” at the BC Wedding Awards this past year! We also took advantage of their Marriage Coaching add-on that allowed us to ultimately address some topics that could have the potential to cause a rift at some point down the road (for any couple who has never had a heated discussion about something to do with money, you’re lying to yourself). Like most couples, we only plan on getting married once, so we owed it to ourselves to invest into our marriage before it even begun. Jane was there for us every step of the way, and we could not be more thankful that we had her to set the tone for our special day. If you are in need of an officiant for your upcoming wedding or perhaps you’re doing research for someone else, stop your search here because you need Jane to be part of your day. Jane is the real deal and you will not be disappointed with how much time, energy and love she puts into her work.

  • They have an amazing team. Made our intimate wedding very special and stress free. Great price too 🙂

  • YH&M were great! We had a unique ceremony where a close friend acted led the ceremony and the reading of the vows. YH&M were present at the ceremony for the official signing of the marriage license only (as per our wishes). They were very flexible and accommodating about their role in the ceremony. They did a fantastic job, and I would highly recommend them.

    David & Swetha
  • We are so thankful we went with Young, Hip and Married for our wedding day. Jane was an awesome officiant and made the day very special and Emily the photographer went above and beyond. Thanks again to everyone at Young, Hip and Married for making our day unforgettable.

  • Working with Young Hip & Married for our tiny park elopement was delightful. From our first email exchange with Tara (super responsive) to our amazing officiant Jane (perfect ceremony in a google doc!), to our wonderful photographer Emily (who met with us beforehand and was totally on the same page with us the whole time), they were all great, professional, easy to work with, etc etc. Loved the experience!

    Andrea
  • Excellent company to work with. Jane conducted our ceremony and she was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

    Katherine McKey
  • Jane made the process very easy, fun and really reduced the stress that weddings can be. She was very understanding and even helped us correct errors we made. I’d highly recommend her services and can see why others have recommended her as well. All the best, Winhol and My Linh

  • Our ceremony was the best part of our wedding day and that is all thanks to Young Hip & Married! Jane Halton officiated our ceremony and from start to finish, it was perfect. We booked Jane with only a month to go due to some covid changes and she immediately jumped into action. She wrote us a beautiful script that perfectly told our personal story and reflected all of our values. She was so open to changes. It was the perfect combination of allowing us to be creative and make our ceremony our own, while knowing that she was guiding us and everything was in her experienced and professional hands. Leading up to the wedding we also completed the Young Hip & Married vows course and it was incredibly helpful. We both wrote our own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

    On the day, Jane showed up early and coordinated with us and our photographer. Immediately, she was a calming presence. Throughout the ceremony, we didn’t have to once worry about what Jane was going to say. And despite the fact that we had read the script, every word Jane said was so meaningful. Our guests loved her – so many guests, both in-person and on our live stream, raved about our officiant! Jane was the perfect mix of serious, sentimental and funny – exactly what we wanted! We always knew we wanted our ceremony to feel intimate, personal, meaningful and so us. And that is exactly what Jane and Young Hip & Married delivered!

    Colin & Riana
  • This team is great! We got exactly what we were hoping for and more. Pleasant to work with and helpful with writing our ceremony. Would recommend!

    Amanda & Jesse
  • Amanda and I couldn’t be happier with the way things went on our perfect wedding day. Jane, the officiant, was a pleasure to deal with, from start to nuptials. She guided us through every step and allowed us to focus on what really mattered. Young Hip and Married recommended an amazing photographer (Emily) and videographer (Cole) that captured our moments and enhanced our experience without making things feel stilted or posed. The whole experience was incredible and the major reason that we were able to let ourselves go and live in the moment was because of the guidance and hospitality of YH&M. Thank you!

  • Such a lovely experience with Jane from Young Hip and Married. She was professional, warm and guided the ceremony with such grace. I also loved the vow course that YHM sent to us before our big day. Overall an excellent experience.

    Jamie & Blair
  • Words can’t expressed how pleased and amazed we were with our choice in using Young Hip and Married as our officiants for our September 2nd, 2017 wedding! We had the pleasure to work with JANE HALTON! She was extremely professional, organized, so easy to talk to and get to know, and so talented at creating the best ceremony script! Our guests were blown away at how personalized, fun, yet romantic the ceremony was. We literally had guests tell us it was “the best they have ever been to.” I would highly recommend investing in Young Hip and Married/Jane Halton for your upcoming wedding!!! Thanks again Jane!!! You are the best!

    Kylie
  • Jane Halton from Young Hip and Married was absolutely fantastic. She worked with us every step of the way leading up to our wedding and gave us guidance that was incredibly helpful. My wife and I both knew that we wanted to do our own vows, but had no idea where to begin. Jane gave us just enough guidance to help us write our vows while still making sure they were our own; they ended up feeling like the perfect expression of what we wanted to say to each other. She also helped us craft what felt like the perfect ceremony, and we’ve received numerous compliments on the ceremony and our vows following the wedding. We couldn’t have done it without her, and we’re so grateful that we found Young Hip and Married for our wedding.

    Stefan & Stephanie
  • We had a fabulous day. Jane, our officiant, put together a great ceremony, listened to who we are and really captured the way we are. She was super helpful in making suggestions and seeking the right feedback from us and delivered in an exceptional way on the day of. We couldn’t ask for any better and would highly recommend her and/or Young Hip & Married any day, everyday.

    Justin Reiher
  • Working with Jane from Young Hip & Married for our wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. YH&M and Jane were highly recommended to us and we can see why. Jane was so warm and welcoming to us right off the bat at our first meeting. She took the time to get to know us both as a couple and individuals. She created a personalized ceremony for us that was authentic, romantic, light-hearted, and a bit humorous – exactly as we had envisioned it. After the ceremony, we received many comments from guests about how much they loved our ceremony and how much they enjoyed it. Jane and the Young Hip & Married team made our wedding ceremony one we will never forget. We highly recommend their services to everyone.

    Richelle & Adam
  • We used Young Hip and Married for an elopement package to officially seal the deal (we had a wedding in a location where it wasn’t possible to get a celebrant in). Jane and the team at YH&M were professional, polite and friendly and were clear about their recommendations and their service. Very happy with ours!

    Emmy & Mark
  • Wonderful experience. At first we were hesitant about it – this is quite a non-traditional experience. YH&M was always responsive to us though and provided all the details we needed. My wife and I are actually from Atlanta, GA and had a destination wedding in Vancouver, so YH&M worked perfectly for us. Jane (our officiant) had prepared a lovely intro speech before we said our vows. It was surprising and very heart-warming! The photographer (Amber) was also very friendly and took photos for us in various locations in the city following the ceremony. All in all, this was a worthwhile experience and worth our money. Highly recommended.

    Ken & Taylor
  • An essential for any elopement! They helped us set a date, time, booked an officiant, and photographer, and even helped us find our perfect location. We would recommend them to anyone!

    Lauren & Ethan
  • Made getting married so memorable and easy. Highly recommend!

    Christie & James
  • My husband and I cannot thank Jane Halton enough for choosing to be our officiant for our special day! Jane was so sweet, calm and relaxed which eased both of our nerves combined. We felt well taken care of and even though our ceremony was short and sweet, Jane made us feel as though we were the only two on the planet for those 10 minutes💞 Thank you Jane for making our special day so memorable!!

    Niki & Steve
  • Absolutely superb people and superb service! We had a very inspiring welcome to Young Hip and Married via Rebecca, who connected us with the best officiant ever, Jane Halton, and our awesome photographer, Emily, who brought a wonderful balance of warmth, professionalism and genuine happiness to our photo shoots. We also felt that the cost of these excellent people helping us out was very reasonable and on the whole, we would say that you need look no further for your wedding officiant and photographer needs. We’d give them 8/5 stars if we could!

    Tristan & Carol
  • Our wedding day was such a special, memorable day for us. I don’t think either of us has every been so happy! Thank you so much for making the ceremony what it was. It was perfectly us and exactly what we had hoped for. – Matt & Marina
