Tina Gabriel - Governing Official

As a former Citizenship Judge I had the remarkable opportunity to experience the great diversity of this country at all levels, from sumptuous multicultural festivals to small private functions. I learned that we are different, yet equal. I have been celebrating love for ten years as an Accredited Official. I  enjoy performing ceremonies that embrace our uniqueness as well as our commonalities.

As a father, son, brother, husband and a human being, I try and understand relationships. I'll be the first to admit my mistakes and I try to always be honest but I'm not an expert because we are always changing and we are always learning much like your relationship.  What I do see is relationships need attention. The kind of attention that our partners value. So much like your partner may crave certain attentions and you are trying to fulfill those, I will do my best to fulfill your wants as a couple. So I don't just want to say some words to you and your guests, I want to feel those words and I want you to feel them as a couple and believe in them.  Let me help you, as a couple, share this commitment to one another, on one of the happiest days of your life.

I became a wedding officiant because I believe in marriage. The ups and downs and everything in between. When you have found ‘the one’ and real marriage becomes something you want to explore, not just the rings, the dress/suit, and the party - I would love the opportunity to help you seal the deal with your vows to each other whether through a big crowd or a bare minimum for those more introverted types - your vows to each other are truly what it is all about.

Whether delivered by hand, mail, carrier pigeon, or discreetly left in a secret location, the letter can be anything from short and sweet, long and endearing. Your wedding ceremony is one of the great love letters of life. It is a genuine expression of your commitment to one another. Whether you choose to keep it private, share it with family and friends, or shout it from the rooftop, your celebration should compliment your personalities. Together, with your imagination and my expertise in wedding coordination, we’ll create an unforgettable wedding ceremony that is true to you! I look forward to bringing a voice to your love letter.

And the second is that 100% of the proceeds of my fees as an Official will be put towards a charity that I have established to support young women in India to gain access to education.

"The most powerful spell to be loved is to love", Baltasar Gracian.


There are many ways to personalize a wedding, with phrases on napkins, walls, boards, rings, during toasts, or with the music, the place, the colors, the clothes; but the officiant must never be absent. However,the Officiant  must understand and match your need or your desire, with your personalization of the event.I became an officiant because the day I decided to say YES!, I found someone to do what I needed, and that moment was UNIQUE AND UNREPEATABLE, and I want to provide that feeling by uttering the magical words that manage to solemnize that union.
