My husband and I got married this past July and could not have done it without Mr. Hickey! He helped complete our wedding and made it absolutely perfect. My husband grew up a few houses down from him and his family so he’s known him for years and always raved about the 'Hickey family'.

After seeing Mr. Hickey marry his daughter in the summer of 2008, we knew we HAD to have him marry us. He was the ideal choice!
He came to our house to meet with us several times, corresponded via email, and made every step of the way so simple for us. Whatever we needed – he was there. He explained things to us that we would have never known without him. He was so easy going and did whatever we wanted but added his own ideas and opinions when we needed them – which we did.

Our ceremony was beyond our wildest dreams perfect. We are STILL getting compliments on our ceremony and officiant to this day – 5 months later. What other people would never know though was that he was also there for us before the ceremony even started and during the reception too. He kept checking on us and offered to help in any way he could. At one point in time he was the one holding my veil for me while my friend fixed my hair and pictures were being taken.

Amazing and helpful are the two words I would use if I had to pick any. He really is the nicest person we have ever met and helped make our wedding the wedding we’ve always wanted and more. It really is hard to put into words just how awesome he is and how wonderful it was to have him marry us. We cannot thank him enough!

We had a dream of having our Civil Partnership in NY, but being from the UK we were struggling to arrange who would marry us and where it would be, also the legal side was a minefield. Just as we were about to give up we were given Ben's telephone number.

As soon as we spoke to Ben we just connected on every level. We talked about what we wanted to happen on our special day. Ben explained how the US system worked, that we had to have a witness with us to apply for the licence, we then had to be resident in NYC for 72 hours before we could collect the licence but after that we could have the ceremony anywhere within the licence jurisdiction. As we were having a quiet ceremony (only the two of us) our other problem Ben explained was we needed two witnesses for the actual ceremony, as we didn't know anybody in NYC Ben arranged for his daughter and Son in law to be the witnesses, it was a real family affair!

Ben listened to our ideas and to the sort of locations we wanted for the ceremony. Ben spent many hours looking for our perfect spot to make the wedding day we wanted happen. He sent us photos of the spots he thought we would like and we opted for Maxwell Pier in Hoboken which has a Manhattan backdrop. Ben took all the stress away, all we had to do was get on the plane and make it to NYC.

Ben, we can never Thank You enough for making our wedding day such a perfect day.
