Vancouver Officiant Jason Hawkins

There is nothing more exciting to me than listening to people talk about their passions. I am beyond thrilled to hear your passion for your relationship and to use it to build your ceremony together. 

For the last 20 years, I’ve had friends and family members ask me to officiate their weddings. Since I wasn’t licensed at the time, I spent those years as a wedding singer and MC so I could still celebrate with my loved ones and be a part of their special days. Now that I am a licensed officiant, I can finally fulfill this long-awaited role.

My wish for you as you plan your wedding is to take as much stress out of the experience as possible. Oftentimes, the expectation of what a wedding should be gets in the way of what you want your wedding to be.

Remember, your wedding isn’t a celebration of what has been said or done before by others. Your wedding is the culmination of your story and the unique celebration of your love.

Jason's Story

My favourite part of a wedding ceremony is the moment when the couple realizes it’s official and they take their first breath together. There’s an energy in the room that you can feel witnessing their first “first” as a married couple.

My wife and I eloped during the pandemic and I still remember our first moment as a married couple. All of the fringe details melted away as I got lost in my wife’s smile – a smile I have sought to see every day since. An elopement was the perfect small and intimate celebration for us.

When I’m not officiating weddings, I work as a high school counsellor. Both jobs involve navigating big life transitions, which I feel blessed to be a part of.

Outside of work, you might find me playing board games or baking with my wife and singing whenever the opportunity arises.
