TestimonialsWhat our couples say (just a sampling)
I would happily recommend Ryan to anyone – we do it anyway to all our clients, but it will be nice to write something in support of his awesomeness…
Ryan Hogarth is by far the most eloquent and well spoken marriage officer we have ever had the privilege of meeting. Seeing him at other weddings was a true gift, because when it came to our wedding, we knew there was no one better to preside over our ceremony. It became very clear after our first meeting with Ryan, that he is more than your “run of the mill” wedding officer. His kindness, genuine care for others and understanding that love is something so special and rare, became abundantly clear to both of us. His ability to get to know you on a personal level and remember such wonderful details about you, as a couple, makes him incredible on the day.
He is so well spoken in both voice and tone and made a genuine impact not only on the wedding, but on our lives as well. Every single guest fell in love with him during the ceremony and spoke non stop about how his personal touch elevated the wedding and their spirits. He was one of the most spoken about aspects of our wedding day, which proves his incredible value, not only as a marriage officer, but as a person.
It was a true honour having Ryan there on the day and becoming friends with this wonderful human.Zavion and John
We would like to thank you for the most special and perfect ceremony .It was so beautiful and really so well suited to us.
We loved every word and especially how it was presented. Our family have so many compliments on how you brought us into our marriage.
It was something we will remember for our whole lives together and are so grateful we could share that moment with you.
Thank you so much Ryan and Christa, we will be highly recommending you.Maxime & Adam
Our Wedding was an amazing success.
Firstly, Ryan communicated with us even before the wedding date to check if everything was still according to plan, which put my mind at ease. He also phoned me on the morning of the wedding just to check in as well on whether everything was still running according to plan.
Although we ran about 30 mins late, Ryan was patient. The Ceremony was absolutely amazing, a lot of people are still talking about it. I loved the way he made it so romantic and personal and how he addressed us individually with our names, it’s as if he’d know us for years. He made us feel comfortable as we stood there facing each other, and eased the nerves a little bit, you can imagine how high they were at this time, however, Ryan really was amazing, and I could not have picked anyone better to officiate our wedding.
I’m only getting my photos after a few weeks, I don’t have photos that show us and Ryan during the ceremony, they are not very clear, is that the kind of photo you are looking for?
Thank you.Amanda Ngubane

Thank you once again for doing for us what you did… We’ll never forget it
God blessJohn de Vries & Johan van der Schyff
Maria and I would like to thank you both for making our wedding ceremony such a success. Firstly, to Christa for being so easy and efficient to deal with when it came to all the necessary paperwork and documentation, and especially to Ryan for conducting such a wonderful wedding ceremony; you really brought energy, charisma and professionalism to the ceremony which is exactly what we wanted. We really had a wonderful day and everything went perfectly (including the weather) so we could not be happier.Grant & Maria
I just wanted to thank you for a beautiful ceremony last week! We couldn’t have made a better choice. It was truly wonderful.Thank you for being a part of our journey and making it smooth and without worry. We appreciate it a lot.Thato & Queen
Ryan has such a great personality, he is really easy to connect with and is extremely accommodating. Sending off a positive and relaxed yet professional vibe he really made Tayla and myself feel comfortable. We knew we were in great hands as he had married 2 of our friends before.
Ryan has a certain charm about him which makes the whole ceremony and process leading up to feel really special.
There is no one else we would have wanted to marry us.Michael Holly
