A Perfect Witness
- Serving Greater Tampa Bay, Florida
Whether you want a religious wedding ceremony, vow renewal, baby blessing or memorial service, you will probably want more than cookie cutter platitudes and syrupy words. We three ministers - John, Jayne and Bob - deliver words and thoughts to remember. While the emotions of the moment may overwhelm you, you will have the ceremony printed out so you can read it later, as you wish. What’s said can be that important.
At A Perfect Witness we strive to make your special occasion memorable for you and all your guests. We are all ordained non-denominational ministers. We take the time to understand your needs and try to offer you what you want.
Parents and grandparents may be of a different mind about religion compared to a bride and groom wanting to marry, and we can often help you find acceptable middle ground.
You may want modern language rather than old style stuffiness. We can help.
You may want to remember with joy and laughter, and our good senses of humor can appropriately lighten your ceremony.
Our combination ceremonies, customized to each occasion, have covered marrying couples of two very different religions, weddings and memorial services for loved ones who could not be there except in spirit, and couples who could not or chose not to be married in the church.
We believe that every loving couple who wants to marry in the eyes of God should be able to; every baby whose parents want blessed but not baptized into one church should have that opportunity; every loved one's memorial service and remembrance should be honored. God is available for everyone, no exceptions or exclusions.

John and A Perfect Witness are AMAZING! Each ans every guest was so impressed by the incredibly beautiful and heartfelt ceremony John provided for us.... he spent the time to get to know us and our relationship through phone calls and interactions- even though we were located in the northeast! The ceremony and vows were unreal and John was even able to tie in an emotional memorial service after the ceremony for a loved one.... Thank you for being a part of our special day and THANK you for being our officiant! Would recommend to ANY bride looking to have a wedding in or around the Tampa area! - Jennifer, Wedding & Memorial
John was kind, fun, professional and extremely sensitive to our needs. I hope to use him again in the future (ours was a baby blessing not a wedding). Thank you! - the Lewis & Donzey families
John did a wonderful ceremony for my daughter Dyan and her Husband Brent at the Tampa Aquarium. The vow's were so touching and just what the couple had in mind. As her Mother I was so happy with the scripture and the way he united them, it was the start of a lovely wedding, I could not have been more pleased. He was professional and easy to work with, with no hesitation I would highly recommend him to any Bride as part of her special day. - Mother of a Happy Bride
All the people I worked with were wonderful. I would recommend this group to anyone. We had a very special ceremony that was catered as we requested. Jayne was very professional and thoughtful. She was helpful with ideas for parts of the ceremony we needed help with. It was a wonderful experience. - Monica
We worked with Jayne initially and then Bob presided over the ceremony. We couldn't be happier with the service we received. They were both warm, friendly, accessible, flexible, and interested. It is wonderful to review the wedding photos and see Bob beaming in every shot. Guests told us that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. We'll be back in ten years to renew our vows!
We had Jayne at A Perfect Witness and I would recommend her highly! We had a beautiful ceremony that we helped design and personalize. She had many great ideas, helped to guide our choices, and made great recommendations on vendors that made our day absolutely perfect. Everything went off without a hitch, looked beautiful, and was everything we could have ever wanted. I also had so many compliments on the ceremony, how professional and well-spoken Jayne was, and how perfectly tailored the ceremony was toward our personalities. I can't emphasize enough how many guests commented on how good Jayne was. I highly, highly recommend her for the beach ceremony of your dreams! – Tawnia
My husband and I as well as our guest found John to be very warm, caring and the greatest of help! John was very comforting, consulting, and his experience is second to none when it comes to any type of ceremony. Full of advice and suggestions regarding family, children, friends and the possible unexpected. I can't say enough about him and his services. With John, it's a mission of love. – Kathy
John from "A Perfect Witness" was our officiant, and he was really amazing. We also met his wife, (also an officiant) who was an absolute lovely woman! John single-handedly wrote a gorgeous ceremony custom-tailored to our personalities and desires. Everyone claimed what a nice ceremony it was because he put the perfect blend of charisma, humor, and romance in his words. – Nicole
