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

  • 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
  • We loved Jane from Young Hip & Married! Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and Jane did such a wonderful job. Highly recommend!

    Sydney & Taylor
  • 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
  • Thank you YH&M for sending us Jane.

    She was a perfect match for the vibe of our wedding. We had no idea what we were doing and Jane made the process seamless and easy. Our guests are still talking about how special and personal the ceremony was and they thought Jane was a perfect match for the day. We will highly recommend Jane and YH&M to anyone and everyone.

    Karen & Paul

  • We can’t thank you enough for how easy you have made this process for us. Your professionalism and kindness helped us so much as we were so last minute and behind on our planning …❤️ There is nothing I would change and again thank you.

    Darya & Anoush
  • 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
  • YH&M were so great to work with. I live over 1000km away from Vancouver but knew we wanted to elope in Vancouver, YH&M were very easy to communicate with via phone and email! It was also fairly last minute planning on my part but YH&M managed to make it all work perfectly! Jane was an amazing officiant, professional, friendly and personable. I would highly recommend them!

    Allison Shepperd
  • 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
  • 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

    Winhol & My Linh
  • 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
  • Where do I even start?! Jane was awesome, sweet and amazing. Our booking was easy, we started on time and had a blast. If you’re looking for stress free elopement like us, use Jane. 10/10 and thank you from Geoff & Holly Wishlaw xox

    Holly & Geoff
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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!

    Ally + Phillip
  • 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
  • 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
  • Jane was super easy to work with from start to finish. She made the entire experience an easy one, and was super organized and stellar on the day of our wedding. Highly recommend!

    June & Bryan
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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’re so happy that Young Hip and Married exist! Everything was great from inquiry to ceremony. We are so lucky to have Jane Halton as our officiant and John Bello as our Photographer. Thank you so much Rebecca for making this happen.

  • Jane was great and followed through even with the challenges of covid. We appreciated her working with us to find a solution that allowed us to keep our special day. Highly recommend this team.

    Jen & Craig
  • 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.

  • Thank you! We had the best day ever! I just want to let you know that we were more than please with Jane as our officiant. She was so easy to talk to and plan with before the wedding and on the day was very friendly, professional and easy to work with. We were very very happy!

    Britney & Mathew
  • 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.

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

    Katherine McKey
  • 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!!

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

    Sarah & Zachary
  • 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

    Damon & Bobae
  • 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 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
  • 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

  • Everything was perfect and simple. The ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it. Eloping with Jane as our officiant was easy. Thank you!!
    Jen + Brenden
  • My husband and I had the pleasure of Jane Halton marrying us in a small elopement with only 6 guests. She showed up early and was extremely pleasant. Explained everything prior to the ceremony and made a short and sweet note about marriage and the importance of each guest in our lives, before going through our vows. She even mailed our wedding license for us! Jane was a wonderful addition to our day and put us both at ease. Thank you, Jane!
    Matt and Lauren
    Lauren & Matt
  • 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
  • Choosing Young Hip & Married was the best decision we made for our big day. Jane, our officiant, was not only professional, communicative and flexible, she was also fun and made us feel so at ease and happy on our day. We flew in to Vancouver from Australia, and we eloped in beautiful Stanley Park. The day before we were married my husband and I explored the park and found the perfect spot. I emailed Jane a snapshot of the spot on google maps and that was that! If you’re looking for a fun, sweet and relaxed day or maybe something a little different I highly recommend Young Hip & Married! Thanks for everything guys!

    Jack & Amy
  • We cannot say enough about the team at Young Hip & Married! Our officiant Jane was fabulous and made our ceremony one to remember! They made us feel at ease and so comfortable. It was a slightly rainy day in Stanley Park when we said our I do’s but we didn’t care. Both Jane and our lovely photographer Erica were both so happy to be there sharing in our moment which made our day even more special. I would recommend them over and over to anyone wanting a simple elopement or something more. Thank you Jane and Erica and thank you Young Hip & Married for making our day so special!

    Tania & Michael Cox
  • We saw Young Hip & Married in action when our best friends got married in 2018. They could not have recommended YH&M highly enough. Now that we’re married, we would confidently recommend them as well. My wife and I were very particular about what we were looking for out of our wedding officiant. Jane ticked all the boxes including some we didn’t realize we needed! She understood exactly what we had envisioned for our ceremony; and was full of good ideas and helpful advice during the planning process. Looking back now, we can’t imagine anyone else presiding over our wedding.

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

    Rona & Rich
  • My husband and I had been engaged for a couple of years and life kept getting in the way, so finally we decided enough already and just eloped with Young Hip and Married. I can’t say enough about how easy they made the process, from booking to sorting out details to putting together a ceremony that felt genuinely representative of us. Jane Halton was a fantastic officiant who incorporated our reading beautifully, kept everything on track and organized and on time, but allowed for our personalized touches and an informal feel at the same time. She was great at keeping in touch leading up to the day of, making sure we had all our details in place. Thanks again YH&M for making our day special and making everything so stress-free! Would definitely, highly, recommend.

    Heather Scott
  • 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
  • It was so easy to coordinate our elopement ceremony with YH&M. We reached out via email about a month beforehand, told them our date, and we were good to go. They also sourced a photographer for us. We were able to communicate easily with our office contact at YH&M, our officiant (Jane, who was awesome!), and our photographer (Emily, who was also awesome!). All were helpful and professional. It was very affordable as well. Also, since we were eloping, it gave us peace of mind to know we could rely on them to understand any legal components of getting married in a country outside our residence. Thanks, YH&M!

    Mason & Hana
  • 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
  • Great Experience! Young Hip and Married was a great wedding experience for us. We were given a detailed break down at a very affordable price. Anytime we had any questions leading up to the wedding we were immediately got back to with the answers. Our officiant Jane was prompt, friendly and very professional. Overall this company helped make our day special.

    Lloyd & Majd
  • 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
  • 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. Jane was perfect; our friends and family were very impressed with the ceremony and her personal touch. Very much looking forward to seeing our pictures!!

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

    Alex & Cody
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • We worked with Jane of Young Hip & Married, and she was just tremendous! We set up an initial consultation with her in which she went over the services she offered. Our entire meeting went really smoothly, and Jane was so professional and easy to talk to. We knew she was exactly the type of person we wanted to take charge of our ceremony. After our initial meeting, we filled out some questionnaires about our relationship. This questionnaire was to help Jane draft up her script for the ceremony portion. We had unlimited access to altering the script, and Jane always had great suggestions with regards to vows, blessings, etc. We really appreciated this, as we had no idea what we were doing. Jane was always professional, very responsive, and easy to communicate with. She also came to our dress rehearsal and went over the entire ceremony portion in detail with everyone in attendance, which was greatly appreciated. On our wedding day, Jane’s speech was so beautiful and felt so genuine. The ceremony flowed so effortlessly, and Jane spoke of us as if we were old friends. We are forever grateful for all the time and effort she put into writing everything up. We would highly recommend going with Young Hip & Married if you want a stress free experience! Jane even mailed off our marriage licence.

    P.S. Please consider asking all your guests to put their phones away for their ceremony! This was one of Jane’s suggestions, and we are SO glad we listened. Looking out at the sea of familiar faces (not phones!) at our ceremony was one of my favourite parts of our ceremony.

    Joyce & Joe
  • 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
  • Thank you so much — you did a wonderful job as our officiant. We had family members telling us this was the best wedding they had ever attended, and everyone loved how you conducted the ceremony (us included!).

    Kevin & Yu-Ru
  • 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!

    Peter & Jenn
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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

  • 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.

    Jenny
  • 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

  • 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!

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

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

    Chelanne & Chris
  • 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.

  • My partner and I loved our elopement-style wedding! We had a destination wedding the following week, but wanted something short and sweet for the legal ceremony in Vancouver. Every aspect of working with Young Hip & Married was a breeze! Their website was clear, easy to navigate, and had helpful tips. After we filled out the questionnaire, we received a response within the day, were able to secure a time and location within the following day, and heard from our officiant immediately. Planning our wedding has involved many vendors that have been unreliable, so I can tell you that when our officiant arrived early on the day of the ceremony and things went exactly as we expected, we couldn’t have been happier! All of our friends and family also remarked at how pleasant and seamless the ceremony was.

  • 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
  • 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!

  • My husband and I had friends who where married a few years ago and the thing I most remembered about their wedding was the ceremony. Since usually the ceremony tends to be the most unmemorable thing about a wedding, and not what I wanted mine to be, I asked them who they used. Young Hip and Married was the answer. I’m so glad they shared with us where they found their officiant. When I first contacted Young Hip and Married myself, I received a quick response (which was amazing since inquiries to 6 other officiants/marriage commissioners went unanswered). Young Hip and Married suggested that we meet with one of their officiants, Jane Halton. Jane was the perfect fit for my husband and I. She was able to craft the most beautiful ceremony for us; something that was elegant, with a touch of humour, and not too mushy. It was perfect. How she managed to take a bunch of our ramblings during our interview and subsequent survey she sent us, and turn it into an elegant ceremony that fitted us perfectly was amazing. I’m so glad that we had Jane officiate our day. We would highly recommend her and Young Hip and Married to anyone.

    Samantha & Michael
  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience with YH&M! They have such great communication. Everything went smoothly and thank you to Jane for the nice ceremony. Would highly recommend.

    Marydel & Russell
  • Made getting married so memorable and easy. Highly recommend!

    Christie & James
  • 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 Halton was our wedding officiant and we have nothing but amazing things to say! On our first Skype call, we immediately knew she was the right person for the job. Her detailed script and prompt replies to my many emails were so helpful! Our wedding ceremony went so perfectly; we have had many guests ask who and where we hired our officiant from! We could not recommend Jane enough. Thank you for making our ceremony so special.

    Morgan & Jeffrey
  • 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!

  • Jane was an amazing and flexible officiant. She was gracious in dealing with our last minute changes and prioritized our needs the whole way through. Thank you for such a smooth experience! We would definitely recommend 🙂

    Annie & Paul
  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 🙂

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
