A note from our founder - John Webster

John Webster founded the company at the turn of the last century, after seeing disappointed bridal couples when their reception was less than they'd hoped for.

The pageantry and elegance of the wedding ceremony was lost in the details of the reception.

John has successfully been involved in hundreds of wedding and has hand picked the best Town Criers in Ontario to be able to provide the enchanting wedding reception you've always dreamed of.
