Welcome!Congratulations on your decision to be married!

Meet Gwen
I’m Gwen Waring, doing what I love.
Serving as the Wedding Ceremony Officiant.


Arizona Wedding Ceremony Officiant | Over the past two decades, more than 6,500 couples have discovered my services when seeking a genuine officiant to lead their joyous wedding ceremony. It matters who performs your wedding ceremony and how it will be conducted. If it’s not the beloved family pastor performing your wedding, it should be a revered professional with a public career of unparalleled care and dedication.

Authenticity lies at the heart of my approach, and I am humbled by so many couples’ trust in me and my service. With every wedding I officiate, I strive to create an uplifting atmosphere, leaving a heartening impression on you and your guests. I am genuinely invested in crafting a ceremony that reflects your sincere desires while delivering a seamless, stress-free experience.


What exactly does a Wedding Ceremony Officiant do?
I joyfully perform traditional and modern wedding ceremonies for couples with a marriage license from any Arizona county. My education, teaching, and ministry experience have taught me about the traditional “marriage celebration” of many faiths and cultures. I often include aspects of both families, intertwining them in the ceremony with reverence and respect.

I can also craft and deliver a beautiful ceremony with no religious content (a love-based civil ceremony). Respectful of all beliefs, you are welcome to write your own personal vows or simply say, “I do!” Include any unity or cultural ceremony rituals you may desire without additional costs. Whatever you decide, I aim to make your special wedding day exciting, memorable, and worry-free.

Q: Where are YOU getting married?
Villa Siena or another venue? Sanctuary on Camelback, The Royal Palms, or another resort? An Air B-N-B or your own home? Phoenix Wedding Studio or a park? I’ve performed romantic wedding ceremonies at these locations and all over Arizona.

Q: What is the fee?
All-inclusive fees range from only $100 at Phoenix Wedding Studio to $700 at The Grand Canyon.

Q: Am I available to perform your ceremony?
A: I need to know your ceremony date, start time, and location.

Thanks for visiting my website! My utmost priority is ensuring that my part of your wedding ceremony experience surpasses all expectations. Any other questions? Email, text, or call me.
