Layne Kilbreath

I am committed to getting to know you so I can make your wedding day special and meaningful. I first started performing wedding ceremonies through my job but have been honoured to marry many softball teammates, friends, co-workers and family members.

I have been married to my wife, Ann, for over 20 years. Together, we have three children. Ann and I are very different but we bring out the best in one another. The best marriage advice I was ever given was to work on your friendship with your spouse. Marriage is hard work but it’s so worth it.

One thing I love to do during the ceremony is mix up the usual order. I like to ask the guests to promise their support and encouragement of the couple before the vows. A lot of my couples (and their guests) really love this change. It lets the couple know how loved and supported they are before they start their new life together.

When I’m not officiating, I work as the Director of Faith Formation at Calgary Christian School. I love being with people during the important moments of their lives – like a high school graduation or a wedding. When I’m not working, you’ll probably find me playing or watching sports. And even more than playing sports, I love cheering on my kids as they play.

My hope for you on your wedding day is that the day is uniquely yours. I want to share the parts of your story that you would like known. I want you to feel like I got to know you well, even if we don’t have a lot of time together. I want to help create a special and meaningful day that’s just for you.


  • Young Hip & Married made our elopement super easy to plan (which is why we wanted to elope in the first place – very little planning!). We were connected with our wonderful officiant, Layne Kilbreath, who helped us organize our ceremony and provided guidance on how to complete paperwork beforehand. Layne worked with us during the few months leading up to the big day and collaborated with us to design a unique and personal ceremony. Layne met us at Moraine Lake (our ceremony destination) the day of and he was very friendly, prepared, and well-matched to our personalities. This whole process has been such a positive experience! Nik and I had the wedding of our dreams, and we highly recommend Young Hip & Married.
