Cape Town Marriage Officer

When planning our wedding, Mark and I both decided we wanted someone who we could identify with, who understood that we weren’t into the most old-school type of service, but rather a fun, non-traditional couple. After our first meeting with Matt, we knew we had found the perfect officiant. He conducted himself in such a way that our guests are still talking about how beautifully done, well-spoken and light-hearted our ceremony was. He definitely set the tone for our wedding. We highly recommend Matt to anyone, he is a genuinely great guy who will tailor-make the ceremony to your needs and wants. Thanks for everything Matt!

- Penny and Mark

We just wanted to drop you a note to thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony and our day so special. It was such a pleasure working with you before the wedding and on the day itself. Your message really struck a chord with us both and the ceremony felt so natural and “us” – just as you advised JOur guests were so touched by your message and how personal the ceremony was – we had so many people on the day of the wedding and even now telling us how amazing you were and that it was the best ceremony they’d ever been to. My parents in particular wanted me to pass on their humble thanks to you and it was our favourite part of the day by far (as it is meant to be)

- Hayley and Johnathan

We were extremely touched by the way in which Matt conducted our wedding service at Stellenbosch. He offered a unique touch that made our wedding personal and heartfelt. During the build-up, Matt made a concerted effort to familiarise himself with our relationship that was clearly evident in his delivery. Most importantly we felt as if we had been married by a friend, which is the best compliment we can give.

- Lisa and Stuart

I just wanted to write and thank you again for helping to make our ceremony so effortless, personalised and special on Saturday. It far exceeded my expectations and I know Pierre joins me in thanking you most sincerely. Everything was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

- Penny and Pierre

Thank you so much for marrying David and I! We so happy it was you that could do it for us! Lots of our guests had lots of complements about you and your words and how you performed the ceremony!

- Jeanine and David

A very special thank you for being part of our wedding day Matt, for an incredible personal and relevant message. You really met our request and exceeded all expectations. We had the most memorable day imaginable and couldn’t have asked for more, or for anything to be different.

- Bianca and Tim

Wallace and I were privileged to have Matthew Mills marry us on 24 March, 2016. We found him to be kind, helpful, warm and obliging. He incorporated our ideas into the ceremony as well as giving his own very good suggestions. He has an easy manner that made all our guests feel comfortable and at home. Both Wallace and I, as well as our friends, were extremely impressed with how he conducted the ceremony and with his meaningful, beautifully presented message

- Janet and Wallace

Mauro and I just wanted to say thanks so much for facilitating a great ceremony for us. You created such a fun and relaxed atmosphere which everyone (including us) appreciated! We have had so many people come back to us to say how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how they enjoyed the message. It was really wonderful.

- Jade and Mauro

Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful, and is definitely something we will cherish forever. It felt like we were being married by a long-time friend which is such a special feeling. All our guests still rave about how amazing our ceremony was and that the message you gave at the ceremony was really powerful and something they still carry with them today

- Kylie and Peet

Matthew did such a stellar job at our wedding. We had been worried making both my husband's very Afrikaans, Christian family, and my Atheist family from England, comfortable - but Matthew had no trouble. His words resonated with every couple there. So many of our friends and family came to us to said they had never experienced such an amazing ceremony and Matthew was undoubtedly the reason why. We would recommend him to any couple!

- Aimee Hill

I would just like to extend an extra special thank you to you for the beautiful ceremony you officiated at my daughter’s wedding. Many people commented on how special the ceremony was and how appropriate and insightful your words were. The levels of respect humour and seriousness were perfectly balanced, thank you for blessing us all.

- Fiona Coetzee

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wedding. Everyone commented on your officiating and really appreciated what you had to say. Honestly, the best we have seen at a wedding thus far. Your advice and help on the day was also so much more helpful than I could have appreciated before the day and I want to thank you for it.

- Matt and Susan

We really cannot recommend Matthew highly enough. We first got in touch with Matthew almost a year before our wedding day, and it was a pleasure to work with him. Matthew is genuine and down to earth. He is also extremely professional, organised, and made us feel completely relaxed and at ease while going through the details for the ceremony. Organising a wedding from a different continent is not an easy thing to do, but he certainly made things a lot easier for us.The ceremony was short and sweet, just as we wanted. Matthew spoke about relationships, and about never taking each other for granted. His speech was brilliant and meaningful, and after the ceremony we had several friends and family members tell us that they were holding back tears listening to him. We would certainly recommend Matthew.

- Gerard & Lize

We just wanted to drop an email to say thank you so much for the amazing ceremony you performed! We could not have been happier, and so many guests complimented us on our amazing marriage officer! We were so lucky to have you as part of our day! You laughed with us and performed the ceremony like you had known us for years! Our guests loved every second, and we know we made the perfect choice! Our ceremony was so beautiful, natural and honest and it was thanks to Matt and his advice and delivery. We wanted a non-traditional ceremony that did not look or feel rehearsed, and that it exactly what we got. Everyone loved it, from Mark’s very prim grandmother and Catholic family, to my religious Afrikaans family to all of our crazy friends and cousins! Thank you Matt, you made the most important part of the day perfect!! We mean every word, you really did give us the most gorgeous day!

- Steph and Mark

We just wanted to say thank you again for conducting the most amazing ceremony for us on Saturday and for just coaching us through the whole thing. We had so many people complement us on how great you were and said they thought we'd know each other for years. You hit completely the right balance of efficiency (in the heat) and complete heartfelt emotion. So from the bottom of our heats, thank you.
