Sam Vander Schelde

My name is Sam Tall (I am 6’8” tall) and I am an Ordained Chaplain with the Community Catholic Church of Canada. I offer services as a Legal Wedding Officiant and as a Certified Funeral Celebrant.

I am also a recent King’s University Collage graduate in Thanatology (the study of death, dying, and bereavement) and Social Justice and Peace Studies; have been a Wedding Disc Jockey/ Master of Ceremonies in the London area for the past 32 years; and a Professional Improvisational Comedy Actor.

I would be honored to be your Tallest Wedding Officiant or Funeral Celebrant in Southwestern Ontario. Sam Tall is literally “heads above” any other Officiant and can professionally fulfill your “Tall” order so that you will have a Ceremony to remember for a lifetime. (Ok, no more tall puns).

My knowledge as a Wedding Disc Jockey, my studies in Thanatology and Social Justice, and my background as a Pro Improv Actor allow me to bring a unique point of view based on personal experience, formal education, and humor.

I am licenced to perform weddings in the Province of Ontario for people of any faith or gender; in any venue or setting.

Remember, There Is No Wedding Without An Officiant!
