William J. Corbett was the officiant for my daughter's wedding in New York City at the Trump SoHo. We was early, got the marriage license signed, talked to the bridal/her party to explain what would be happening and how he wanted them to handle things so the ceremony was perfect. He then went and did the same with the groom/his party. He was very articulate during the vows and I found his words to be very meaningful. He was dressed with in a very nice judge gown. He looked great in the photos and his presence was bold and in charge. He had a medical procedure only 6 weeks prior but we did not know about it and would never have guessed. That puts his dependability and reliability at the top of the charts! The value of his service was worth every penny for sure. I highly recommend him without reservation! Most Sincerely, Grace K. - Mother of the Bride Cincinnati, Ohio December 2017
My husband and I got married 3 weeks ago. We chose Judge Bill a year prior to our wedding due to our religious views. Judge Bill was such a sweetheart to work with. His wife, Ann, was also truly amazing. On the day of our wedding, Judge Bill was not able to make it but he personally called my husband to apologize. His wife was our officiant and she did such an amazing job. It's such an easy choice when you see a couple who truly loves each other and makes 50 years married seem to easy. I am so happy with our choice and am so happy with how Ann conducted our ceremony. You will not regret this decision if you choose either one of them.
An excellent officiant. While we were situated in London, we found Bill communicative and responsive, which was welcome as we would not have the opportunity to meet him until our big day in New York. Bill provided an extensive selection of ceremonial parts that we were able to use to combine into our own non-religious ceremony which he performed perfectly. We had an intimate wedding at the Waldorf Astoria involving a Scottish Handfasting ceremony, which Bill elegantly executed with ease. We have no hesitation in recommending Bill. He is friendly, reassuring, likeable, and has a most pleasant demeanour.
Professional, sweet, humorous and loving. Exactly what you want in your officiant. Such a sweetheart and really took our story to heart and said some incredibly sweet and meaningful words. Great to work with, responded on time, and called a few times to check in too. Really great.
Judge Corbett was referred to us by our venue, The Carltun. We are an interfaith couple who were seeking a non-religious ceremony. We were so pleased - the Corbetts (www.weddingkissny.com) have perfected the ceremony process. My husband and I wouldn't have known where to begin, but we were given an outline from which we could select sections we liked to include (or eliminate, for that matter). We were also able to incorporate a few of our own readings and sentiments, which Judge Corbett supervised and performed perfectly. If you have the opportunity, it is worthwhile to meet in person at their office - you'll be quite impressed with the history you'll see posted along the walls! We are married 2+ weeks now, and are still impressed by the follow up and guidance we have gotten from Judge Corbett. Very pleased.
Great OfficiantReviewed on 8/04/2015 Maureen H
Judge William J. Corbett was amazing. he met with us prior to us committing to having him preform our marriage ceremony and we fell in love with him immediately. He's warm and personable and in constant communication with the bride and groom. I had high standards and wanted someone professional and warm. Judge Corbett met those standards and I was thrilled with our ceremony. This was my husband's second marriage and we wanted to ensure that his daughter was a part of our celebration. Judge suggested "Hugs & Presentation" which made her feel so good and a real part of the wedding. Thank you Judge Corbett for helping make our day beautiful!
Great CeremonyReviewed on 3/19/2015 Jennifer P
Judge Corbett provided a beautiful and non-denominational wedding service that satisfied all of our guests. He was professional, courteous, and a joy to work with. We were very satisfied with his service.
Great workReviewed on 10/21/2014 Danielle L
We wanted our ceremony to be removed from any religious references; thus we had a mutual friend deliver most of the wedding ceremony, and we had Judge Corbett come in to perform the legal proceedings. He was willing to work with us and do exactly as we asked. We really appreciated it!
Thank YouReviewed on 8/04/2014 William C
“Thank you for the lovely wedding service. So many people have complimented us on the wonderful ceremony. We would like to thank you again and again for helping to make our wedding so special.” Sue and Daniel
PerfectReviewed on 9/13/2012 Jessica B
He was absolutely everything I could have asked more. My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and did not want to offend either family. Judge Corbett did a great job. Everyone told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We met with him before the day decided on our ceremony and he executed it perfectly. He also looked great in his black robe very official looking.
Beautifully done!Reviewed on 7/15/2012 Rose L
My husband and I were extremely pleased with Bill Corbett's performance. His biography was most impressive, and the choices for the ceremony were quite extensive. We opted to include the recognition of parents, the rose ceremony (which was roses presented to the mothers of the bride and groom) and we also included the unity sand ceremony. We had a Catholic/Christian based ceremony which was lovely, since we are both Roman Catholic. The ceremony was quite intimate, it ran for somewhere around 20 minutes, and due to Bill's experience, was a huge success! We highly recommend Bill's services to anyone in need of an Interfaith Officiant, not to mention our marriage license had arrived in the mail 3 days after he married us!!
Great!Reviewed on 4/03/2012 Alison M
We sat and talked with Judge Corbett for an hour the night we went to meet him. He has had a very impressive career which you can see from all the photos in his office. He arrived on time and organized everyone. Very happy with him.
Mr CorbettReviewed on 11/29/2011 Anna P
We LOVED our meetings with Mr Corbett. VERY nice guy and a beautiful ceremony BUT he mispronounced my husbands very simple last name which was a major gaffe. However I definitely do recommend his services.
Officiant with a Catholic CeremonyReviewed on 10/28/2011 Lucyann S
It was a pleasure having Mr. Corbett officiate at my wedding. He combined a general ceremony with some catholic prayers which made me and my husband extremely happy. We are both divorced catholics and cannot get married again in a catholic church so it was nice to have a catholic ceremony.
A great manReviewed on 10/16/2011 kamnar k
Judge Corbett was great in officiating our wedding. He was quite affordable as most others wanted to charge a heck of a lot more. He's a straight forward gentleman and we are glad that we employed his services.

Judge Corbett ReviewReviewed on 8/15/2010 Judy X
I found Judge Corbett through a knottie recommendation. He is personable and very enjoyable to be around. Other officiants we contacted were pushing their personalized service, but we just wanted something short and sweet, not personalized. Judge Corbett was what we were looking for. He sent us his ceremony script and we edited it to our liking. He arrived on time on the day and did a short rehearsal prior. With a small wedding party, that was adequate for us. My only hiccup is that I feel that he missed a poem in the ceremony script that we wanted. But not a big deal and the only person who would know is me.
