Who is Mary Anne Farah?

As a Humanist Officiant, I am licensed by the Registrar General of Ontario to perform legal, secular, non-religious wedding and funeral ceremonies in Ontario.

I am an artist, administrator and published writer. I am also the author of an e-book  titled “Pepper’s Special Wings—A Story About Natural Selection” that teaches evolution to young children (published in Nov. 2012 by the Humanist Press, Washington, D.C.).

I am a wife and a mother of two sons. I live in Oakville, Ontario.

Why Mary Anne?

Why would I want Mary Anne Farah to officiate my wedding ceremony? I have a passion for weddings.  I also recognize that this is YOUR ceremony. It has to be what you want. It has to fit your personality for you to be happy.

I want to make your wedding ceremony positive and memorable. I want to cater to your ceremony wishes, whether they are to have a traditional, romantic, specialty, fun, serious, spiritual, family-oriented, pet-oriented, child-oriented or other kind of service. I want to help you design a personalized ceremony that you will remember with fondness forever.

As an Officiant with humanist values, I support gay and lesbian weddings.

  • I want your service to reflect who you are as a couple. We can work together to make the ceremony fit your needs and preferences.  To do this, I’d be happy to get to know you as a couple.


As a humanist officiant I can provide the following services:

  • weddings
  • celebrations of life
  • naming ceremonies
