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

  • We worked with Jane for our wedding and we are SO glad we did. Jane was incredibly professional and was able to adapt her style to the tone of the wedding. She really took the time to get to know us and was able to add personal touches to our ceremony that made all of the difference. She made the process of obtaining the marriage certificate seamless and it took a weight off our shoulders to not have to worry about submitting all the paperwork. She had so many great ideas for the flow of the ceremony which allowed things to run smooth and effortlessly.

    We also took advantage of the vows course from YH&M and found it to be SO helpful! Having a framework allowed us to structure our thoughts and deliver some really great and persona vows to each other. We would absolutely recommend YH&M to anyone looking for an officiant service.

  • Jane from Young Hip & Married was amazing as an officiant. She did an awesome job with our wedding; the words shared were perfect and beautiful. We wrote our own vows and the vow writing course was very good, helpful and concise. It helped us tremendously to write our vows. We can’t thank her enough and are very happy that she was our officiant for our wedding.

    Liliana & Jason
  • I could not recommend a company more if you need a wedding officiant. We were introduced to Young Hip and Married through Shawn Miller who introduced us to Jane. We didn’t know what to expect but Jane blew us away. She was professional and sincere; she took time to get to know us and exactly what we wanted. She then set the tone for our wedding in an excellent way and exactly the way we wanted. Many people have told us how impressed they were with her and we absolutely agree. Jane is a fantastic officiant; you will not be disappointed.

    Lucy & Roy
  • 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.

    On their experience with Jane: Wonderful service. From the first time we contacted them, they were friendly and helpful, and quick with their responses. I was worried that I’d given too short notice for our wedding date, but they were very accommodating, even though I wasn’t sure about the exact time when I contacted them (even asked them for advice!). Booking with them was easy, and stress-free. Would definitely recommend!

  • 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
  • Despite being the middle of the winter season, YH&M coordinated a flawless 15 minute elopement for me and my wife. This is honestly the only wedding officiant organization to hire if you’re in Vancouver.

  • 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
  • Thank you so much to the Young Hip & Married team! Our officiant, Jane Halton, did an amazing job that exceeded our expectations!

  • 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
  • Jane Halton and the folks at YH&M were fantastic to work with and they made our special day that much more special. My wife and I can’t recommend them enough!

    Arash & Sumedha
  • Loved working with Young Hip and Married for our intimate elopement! I’m easily stressed out and wanted to have a small elopement with close friends and family. YHM was simple and straight forward when leading up to the wedding. We were sent the script before hand to know exactly what was going to be said. Our officiant Jane was so nice and easy going! And even though we had seen the script beforehand, Jane’s delivery was so natural and felt so personal! Even though we went with a small elopement it still felt very legitimately like a small wedding experience! It was exactly what we wanted. We had Erica (EricaMillerPhotography) as our photographer. She was so fun to work with and the photos turned out Great! So Glad Jane and Erica could be a part of our beautiful day! Young Hip and Married was definitely a good choice for us!

    Loganne & Parker
  • Thanks Young Hip & Married team for being part of our ceremony. The team was very responsive, helpful and supportive. They made everything clear, easy to understand and stress-free. Thanks Jane and Erica again for being with us on a rainy windy day. Highly recommended!

    Annie & Nick
  • Jane’s ceremony script was so personalized and sweet. She put a lot of work into making it tailored to us and did such an amazing job reading it at the ceremony. We got so much feedback from all of our guests about how much they loved it and what a great job she did. It was so special and perfect. She also made sure we felt confident and knew what we were supposed to be doing the whole time. 10/10 would recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for a fantastic officiant!

    Olivea & Joey
  • We love you Jane!!! What an amazing experience we had with Young Hip & Married, Jane was our officiant as well as our pre-wedding coach (highly recommended) and she absolutely rocked it. Our ceremony was more than we could have hoped for and we are so overwhelmed with gratitude. I will 100% be recommending YH&M to all of my friends.

    Bella & Alec
  • 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
  • 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
  • Everyone at Young Hip and Married was friendly, helpful, flexible with schedule of the officiant. Jane, our officiant, understood what we wanted and made it happened . We didn’t decide our elopement ceremony location until the evening before our elopement and Jane never put pressure on u. In general Young Hip & Married is the right wedding service if you want to have a relaxed, personalized wedding. Jane arrived on time and did an excellent job at officiating our elopement in Vancouver. Thank you YHM!!!

    Andres & Rocio
  • Thanks to Young Hip & Married we had a very stress-free experience, I honestly think it’s the only way to get married. We would have never thought to get married at Bloedel Conservatory but the minute we seen it suggested on the website we knew it was the perfect place.

    Rebecca responded quickly, was very kind and extremely helpful. Jane is an amazing officiant, we really appreciate how simple it was to decide on a wedding script and how informative and efficient Jane was. Erica was also amazing! Erica helped us pose a little but also did the most amazing job capturing genuine and organic moments. We felt comfortable immediately and absolutely love our photos.

    Everyone is so professional, response times were so quick, everyone kept us informed – Jane even emailed us 2 days after our wedding to let us know our license had been sent! We thought that was very quick!! Our photos also came back quickly, right at the 4 week mark when they were promised! We will be recommending Young Hip & Married to everyone we know!! (even the single ones)

  • It’s a tough decision picking your wedding officiant. We read lots of reviews online and came across Jane (who we hired to be our officiant), and boy did we make the right decision! Jane was so passionate about making our ceremony special, and was very supportive with our requests. Jane is also an incredible speaker. Over half of our wedding guests commented to us about our officiant’s incredible talent. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone that asks! Thanks!

    Jonah & Rachelle
  • 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
  • Young Hip & Married was exactly what we were looking for! They took care of all the important stuff and allowed us to have a completely stress free wedding day. Booking was easy, we never once felt confused or lost throughout the entire process. We definitely recommend YHM for anyone looking to elope in BC; we are extremely happy with how our day turned out! Thank you!

    Young Hip & Married was exactly what we needed! From the first email to the ceremony everyone was extremely kind and helpful. We wanted something easy and simple, YHM took care of all the important things and gave us a completely stress free wedding day. We’ve recommended them to our friends looking to elope in BC. Thank you for everything!

    Lucy & Matthew
  • We had such an amazing experience with Young Hip & Married! The whole process was clear and easy to navigate. The website was detailed but not too overwhelming.

    We decided to elope at Stanley Park Rose Garden in Vancouver, B.C. and the YHM team provided all the information we needed to make sure we knew how and where to purchase our wedding license, park permit and liability insurance. Communication with the staff from when we paid online all the way to our wedding day was helpful, kind, and quick.

    We loved the awesome vow writing class (that was an added free bonus) ahead of our wedding date and Jane, our amazing officiant, took time to chat with us a few weeks before to answer our questions and make sure we felt at ease.

    The day of our elopement was perfect! Jane met us at the park and together we found the perfect spot. She made sure we felt ready to go and then proceeded to facilitate a lovely, intimate, and joyful ceremony. It was everything we wanted. We are so grateful for and highly recommend Young Hip and Married and Jane! Thank you!

    Abhishek & Shahaan
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Planning our elopement in Vancouver with the help of Jane and the rest of the YH&M Team was flawless, stress-free and so simple. If you are considering booking your elopement with them, stop considering and book NOW. Our wedding day would not have been the same without them.

    Jane was prompt in responding to emails, gave incredible advice for locations and was professional and lovely during our ceremony. It felt as though we had known her personally for a long time.

    The YH&M Team has streamlined elopement ceremonies and we would recommend this a million times over! This is a decision you just can’t regret. Thank you for making our day the most amazing day of our lives!

  • My husband and I met Jane at Young Hip & Married initially through our good friends. Jane was their officiant, and involved the entire wedding party from the get go. She thoughtfully reached out to each of us so that she could get to know her bride and groom better, and curate a perfect wedding ceremony for them. We were very impressed with Jane, and decided to reach out to her shortly after the wedding to discuss officiating ours! Through our discussions, we decided to try a marriage coaching session with Jane. After one session we saw the benefits, and signed up for four more. Jane covered some serious topics with us, many of which we wouldn’t have discussed in great detail otherwise. She created a comfortable atmosphere for both of us, and an environment where we could talk about anything. Our relationship with Jane has been incredibly special. As she got to know us better, she was able to craft the perfect ceremony that really reflected who we are. Our wedding day was perfect, and Jane played a huge part in that. I think a lot of people overlook the marriage coaching aspect of Young Hip & Married, but it equipped us with some essential skills we will be using for many years to come. Thank you, Jane! You have our highest recommendations!

    Mackenzie & Mike
  • The YH&M team is AMAZING!! They were super friendly and organized! We had to change our schedule slightly, and they did not hesitate to accommodate us! Our officiant Jane was AWESOME!! She had a beautiful script prepared for us and was also happy to tweak it to make it sound more like us! Everything was perfect! I am sure that we owe a lot of that to this team – they made everything easy!

    Annabelle & Cameron
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

  • My husband and I decided back in July 2022 to get married in September 2022. We contacted Young Hip & Married, after having looked through the website and seeing the services they offered. They responded promptly and had a photographer and officiant available on the day we wanted. Our officiant, Jane, was so lovely and the words she spoke during our ceremony were beautiful. Our photographer, John, was nothing short of amazing – his photographs were mind-blowing. In all, it was a perfect day and we could not have have asked for a more “us” wedding day. Thank you so much, YH&M!!! 🙂

  • We eloped, which means planning/stress was already minimal compared to your ‘typical’/average wedding but it was SO nice to have Young Hip & Married involved in planning our day. Our officiant, Jane, was amazing. Professional, friendly and personable. I liked the idea that YH&M has many officiants so if yours is suddenly ill or has an emergency and cant attend they’ve got a roster of others to swoop in and cover for you! We did photography through YH&M as well which was a breeze to have that organized through them as well! I’ve recommended YH&M to many friend who are interested in a small wedding, and I will continue to recommend them!

  • We reached out to Young Hip & Married because they had a wonderful irreverent and casual attitude. They were fantastic throughout – communicative, clear and accommodating. We booked the elopement package, with Jane as our officiant and Emily as our photographer, and both were professional and lovely.

  • We couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect experience working with Young Hip & Married and our officiant Jane! With Young Hip & Married we were able to customize our wedding based on our needs and our amount of guests. Jane was in touch with us throughout and allowed us to add touches to our ceremony at our own pace. She gave us great suggestions and incorporated our ideas into the ceremony as well. That way our ceremony felt stress free and unique. Jane was extremely professional and prepared and the ceremony we decided on was exactly what we had planned with her.

    We got married in Stanley Park with 30 guests and the weather was perfect! The day was made all the more perfect due to Jane’s professionalism and expertise. We would highly recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking for an intimate or small outdoor ceremony! We were so worried that getting married in Vancouver would cost us a fortune, but luckily we were able to have a wedding that felt lavish and at an affordable price. We have Young Hip & Married to thank for that. 5 stars.

    Kevin & Janice
  • Jane exactly knew what we wanted for our wedding! Everything was perfect and we are glad that she was our officiant. 🙂

  • Jane officiated our wedding this past weekend and it was amazing! We really wanted a wedding that was short and sweet but had a lot of fun and humor to it. Jane captured all of that! All our guests said the ceremony was so much fun and so “us” and we really appreciate how Jane could capture so much about the two of us. She was also so quick to respond, even when we had to move the wedding date, and it was super easy to schedule meetings and our rehearsal. You can tell Jane loves to work to make your wedding your own and we really recommend her for anyone who wants to personalize their wedding and make it a fun experience everyone will remember!

  • How do I even begin? From the start of contacting YH&M they were All Stars. Absolutely amazing customer service. We wanted a sweet & simple (not boring) elopement and that’s when they hooked us up with our officiant Jane. We stayed in contact via email and every step along the way was easy. On our wedding day, Jane & her adorable personality showed up on time and exactly where we needed her to be. It was the perfect little ceremony we hoped for, a quick photo op & Jane was on her way doing all the dirty work for us. We even received follow up emails from both Jane and the owner of the company. Love love love Young Hip & Married. If you’re considering hiring them, stop considering & book them already!! Thank you!!

  • Thanks so much to the team at YHM and especially to our wonderful officiant, Jane. Jane was outstanding. She was patient with use through the preparation, she was funny and insightful in her presentation, and she made us both feel so great during the event. Lots of great comments about Jane from those we shared the day with as well. Most of the comments were about how personal she made the event through her words and comments. Julie and I so appreciate all that Jane did to support us through this exciting process.

  • Jane Halton wrote a lovely ceremony for us on a tight timeline. She is very experienced and knew when to step out of the way to let us have great photos. She also ran our rehearsal which was super helpful for everyone!

  • 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 🙂

  • A day filled with lots of love, memories, amazement, stress and a foreverness. I am so grateful I came across Young Hip & Married. From the minute we put in our request, until the follow-up after… we couldn’t be more elated with our choice to have Jane and her team be part of our wedding day. Jane thank you for everything. You were professional, kind and very organized. Your guidance and time with us made us feel less stressed and comfortable. You blended in so amazingly into our wedding day and made it so beautifully memorable for us. We can’t say thank enough!! So glad we were able to have you with us and be a part of our special day. Thank you Young Hip and Married. Couples do yourself a favour… book them! Accountable, reliable, in-budget, generous, adaptable, professional… I could go on!

    Rhea & Dominic
  • Jane was an absolute joy to work with. On the day of the wedding, she made us feel reassured throughout the day by being capable, clear and made us laugh at the right times to ease our nerves. The service was everything we defined at the beginning–short, fun and meaningful. We also did pre-marriage counseling with her, which I recommend doing. Our sessions brought a couple things to light that were helpful to talk through before our big day. Jane is a smart, funny, all around wonderful person whose intuitive nature makes her the perfect person to officiate your wedding.

    Matt & Meghan
  • 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
  • Jane set the tone for the day. Inclusive, relaxed, funny, and warm; everything that we wanted for our day. Every guest commented on how great she was. Our prep was minimal and she understood our schedules and worked with us. I can’t thank Jane and Young Hip and Married enough for being a part of our day.

    Colleen & Dan

    Wes & Kathleen
  • Jane Halton married us and we could not have asked for a better officiant! Communication beforehand and during was great! We were also able to customize and choose our vows on such short notice lol. All in all, I would recommend Young Hip & Married to anyone looking to get married, especially Jane Halton 🙂

  • 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!!

  • We didn’t know where to start when planning our small, backyard wedding. I Googled different options and was happy to see the range of packages offered by Young Hip & Married. We booked the elopement package with 90 minutes of photography and it was just enough. Our officiant was Jane and she was really collaborative and responsive when developing our ceremony. She was lovely to work with! And Erica Miller was our photographer. We are just thrilled with our pictures!! She was even able to get my camera-shy husband to look natural. All in all, it was a really great package that made all of the wedding planning way easier!

  • We had a great experience using Young Hip and Married for our wedding! We had Jane as our officiant – she was super friendly and was very easy to communicate with throughout our whole wedding process. We had to change our venue 3 times, and she was able to accommodate every change we made. She wasn’t able to make it to our rehearsal, but she made us a personal video outlining every important detail for us to know. She was very responsive to our emails and questions; we couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. Would recommend using her and YH&M for your ceremony!

  • YH&M is an amazing company! We had Jane officiate our ceremony and she put many hours of detail into creating a blended Persian & Canadian ceremony unique to us. The price is on the higher end, but it is definitely worth the investment! Our ceremony was personalized, professional, and we had a lot of input into the final version. Well done YH&M!

    Vanessa & Ehsan
  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Could not say enough good things about YH&M! When we were planning our wedding we knew we wanted an intimate ceremony with an officiant who was heartfelt, genuine and who made the ceremony fun yet special. Jane was perfect. We would 100% recommend YH&M for big and small ceremonies. You completely get what you pay for and for us that was so important.

  • Jane carefully crafted a ceremony that reflected us and encouraged us to fine tune things so they were just what we wanted. She was able to keep us calm and got us through our vows even though we were a bit choked up! We received so many compliments from our guests on the what a outstanding job Jane did and how beautiful and touching they found the ceremony.

  • We had a simple wedding that became very special, thanks to Young Hip & Married. They were exactly what we were looking for; they made everything easy and we couldn’t have been happier with the day.

  • YH&M where incredible to work with! Everybody who attended our wedding was raving about the ceremony and how much of us and our personalities was put into it. I couldn’t recommend them enough!
    Jeff & Jen
  • We were interested in working with Jane from Young Hip & Married after hearing how incredible she was from a friend who attended a wedding she officiated. After our initial meeting, we knew we wanted to work with her! Jane has a very warm and fun presence and we felt comfortable with her right from the very beginning. She really got to know us as a couple and was attentive to what we wanted and didn’t want to include in our ceremony. She put together a beautiful ceremony that was personalized to us and really captured the growth of our relationship. We even had guests comment on how amazing she was! We couldn’t be happier with how our ceremony turned out and highly recommend Jane to anyone looking for an officiant!

    Kimberly & Tyler
  • Great people to work with. Rebecca was really easy to communicate with. Jane was a great officiant and the photographer, John, was amazing. Highly recommend YH&M!!

    Christian & Silvana
  • Jane from YH&M was great to work with! She met with us to get to know us where we answered questions about our relationship and she put together a beautiful story for our ceremony. She was professional and was great at communicating. Would definitely recommend.

    Malak & Jordan
  • 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
  • We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant than Jane. She is laid back enough to make it fun and non-stressful to work with her, but not so laid back that she is casual or trivial—she takes seriously the significance and honour of the ceremony. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and this allowed her to be very personal in her homily, and to speak words of encouragement and challenge that will remain with us for a lifetime.

    B & D
  • 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
  • I recently had the pleasure of working with Young Hip and Married, and our officiant Jane Halton, for my wedding ceremony, and I cannot express enough how impressed I was with their services. From start to finish, they demonstrated a level of professionalism and expertise that truly made our special day unforgettable.

    Jane’s ability to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere was remarkable. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, understanding our unique love story and personal preferences. Her personal touch made the ceremony feel intimate and personalized, leaving a lasting impression on both us and our guests.

    Moreover, her attention to detail was impeccable. She guided us through the entire process, ensuring that every aspect of the ceremony was tailored to our desires. Young Hip and Married’s expertise in crafting meaningful vows and incorporating our chosen rituals made the ceremony truly reflective of our love and commitment.

    Throughout the planning process, our officiant was incredibly responsive and accommodating. Jane were always available to answer our questions and provide guidance, making us feel at ease and confident in their abilities. Her professionalism and reliability were evident in every interaction, which alleviated any stress we may have had leading up to the big day.

    During the ceremony itself, our officiant Jane Halton’s delivery was flawless. Her eloquence and ability to captivate the audience created an atmosphere filled with love, joy, and celebration. She seamlessly transitioned between different parts of the ceremony, ensuring a smooth and seamless flow.

    Overall, I cannot recommend this Young Hip and Married enough. Their dedication, expertise, and genuine passion for what they do truly set them apart. If you are looking for an officiant who will go above and beyond to make your wedding ceremony a truly memorable experience, look no further. They will undoubtedly exceed your expectations and help create a day filled with love and cherished memories.

  • 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
  • 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! 🙂

  • Young Hip & Married were efficient, friendly and would highly recommend. Jane was wonderful, extremely kind and personable. 10/10!

  • We loved working with Jane Halton as our officiant. She was so collaborative and offered wonderful suggestions for creating a unique ceremony combining multiple cultures. She’s very communicative and the ultimate professional. She put our minds at ease and made the experience so joyful!

    Sara & Josh
  • 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
  • Jane was the perfect officiant for our wedding! She was super helpful in guiding us to write our vows and fit the wording of the ceremony to suit us. She had the perfect balance of humour and romance and especially important to us, was very inclusive in her language. We’ve already recommended her to other recently engaged couples and will continue to do so!

    Sunita & Sean
  • Thank you to Jane for making our elopement a memorable and enjoyable experience. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Cheers!

  • My wife and I had a vision of our elopement being intimate and relaxed. Jane wrote a script that suited our vision, and our lives perfectly. She spoke with honesty and authenticity, and guided us through our brief ceremony lovingly.

    Young Hip and Married was a great service to go through. Thanks to them, and especially Jane.

  • So glad we made the very important decision to go with Young Hip and Married to officiant our ceremony. From the beginning I was impressed with how professional and kind Tara was. We had found out through our planning process that I was newly pregnant and Tara was nothing but patient and kind!  Tara recommended Jane for Nick and I and I’m SO glad she did. We met Jane at a cute coffee shop and immediately felt comfortable and excited! Following after our first meet Jane sent us the draft on how our ceremony would commence. I was blown away at the beautiful words that Jane had written crying (happy tears) the whole way through! She was able to capture the mood and overall essence of our relationship, amazing!!

    The ceremony itself was more than we could have imagined, Nick and I both agreed Jane made it so easy for us. She spoke so eloquently and with true genuine love for our love. We wanted to tell our family at our wedding the sex of our baby and Jane came up with a sweet little entrance to announce our baby girl! All of our guests said she was incredible! Since it was such a small and intimate wedding I’m so thrilled we went with Young Hip and Married to find Jane it helped create the romantic, intimate and moody feel we were looking for. Worth every penny!! Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts Jane will forever be someone special to us!!
    Jessica & Nick
  • 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
  • Our officiant, Jane, was amazing. We began our journey with her with a plan to hold our ceremony in West Vancouver, and when I suddenly broke my leg and had to rework the entire plan, and switch our location to Richmond, she was nothing but understanding and supportive. The way she ran our ceremony was wonderful. Quick, casual, but beautiful and warm – exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend her. She really made the ceremony part of our wedding day feel effortless.

    Vivi & Aaron
  • This company made our wedding really great! Jane was excellent, friendly and organized and she made our ceremony unique for us! We really appreciate it and for sure we recommend Jane Halton to make your wedding as nice as you want!

    Brandon & Steph
  • 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
  • Jane Halton officiated our wedding this past weekend and we could not have asked for a better experience! Our guests had nothing but compliments after the ceremony and loved the unique personality and casual nature of the event. Having the chance to meet with her in advance of the ceremony helped us feel comfortable that she would create a customized ceremony that fit our personalities and style. She also took care of our rehearsal, ensuring our entire wedding party was up to speed on the process and gave us a chance to review everything before the day. We’d highly recommend Jane and Young, Hip & Married to anyone looking for an excellent, highly personal wedding experience.

    Nick Sartore
  • From the moment we contacted them, the customer service was amazing! Jackie sent us a super fun personable video and was prompt to respond to our questions. Jane helped us pick a location to get married and was also very quick to respond to any questions we had. Jane’s energy was great during the ceremony. We also loved her outfit! Would highly recommend Young Hip and Married!

    Sara & Hollis
  • Jane Halton officiated our wedding. Communicating with her was easy and we loved that our ceremony & vows told our story authentically. We were a little bit nervous before the rehearsal, but after running through it with her, we felt so much better and hopeful that our day will go smoothly. On our wedding day, Jane was very supportive and made sure to give us little reminders. She worked very well with our coordinator to make sure that our ceremony was smooth-sailing. She completed the paperwork and we got our marriage license soon after the wedding. We are so happy that we chose YH&M and got to work with Jane!
    Andrew & Riela
  • Jane was an amazing officiant; we couldn’t ask for a better ceremony. Our guests were very impressed by the whole thing and very appreciative of the personal stories and humour. The professionalism she displayed put us at ease; everything was so well thought through from beginning to end. The vow writing tools are extremely helpful as we had no idea where to begin. I highly recommend this service over hiring someone who just shows up on the day.

    Shari & Philippe
  • The team here was absolutely amazing. Taking all the stress out of our special day, and making it the most comfortable and lasting experience we have ever had! I would absolutely recommend this company if you want a no fuss/muss wedding! 🙂

    Young Hip & Married took all the stress of planning out of our wedding and elevated what was originally going to be just a ‘signing of papers’ into a truly special and memorable day.
    Matt & Laura
  • 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!
