Brandywine Manor House | Officiant Services

Brandywine Manor House is happy to provide you with an Officiant for your ceremony.  Ryan McLaughlin is our on-site officiant, available for both your rehearsal and ceremony. Attending Millersville University for his undergraduate studies, Ryan went on to Wilkes and Penn State Universities for his Masters and further certifications.  In addition to officiating on weekends, Ryan has taught middle school for fifteen years.  He and his wife reside in Honey Brook and have eight children.


Ryan is happy to email couples interested in his officiating services and will meet with contracted couples at Brandywine Manor House to discuss their individual ceremony needs.

In Pennsylvania, couples apply for a self-uniting wedding license.  The marriage license is the same cost as a regular marriage license.  The difference simply notes that the officiant is not a pastor or priest of a church and in lieu of an officiant signature, two witnesses sign the document (usually the Best Man and Maid or Matron of Honor).  Several brides have included the signing of the marriage license as a part of their ceremony!

For more information on our Officiant services, contact an Event Coordinator at or 610.942.2200.
