I am a Certified Licenced Wedding Officiant in the province of Ontario and am committed to creating and delivering wedding ceremonies that are personal and professional. As an Officiant, I aim to guide the couple in creating a beautiful wedding ceremony which reflects their own hopes, wishes and choices. I ensure the couple and everyone in attendance share the joy, excitement, fun and laughter of the wedding ceremony and the commitment the couple are making to each other. My goal is to leave everyone present with a feeling of satisfaction that we witnessed the couple’s vows during the most important moment of their lives, and we have honoured and celebrated this couple in the highest way possible.
The excitement and anticipation of everyone at the start of a wedding and saying “all rise” is one of my favourite moments of a wedding. Seeing the wedding party and bride make their entrance, I watch the groom when he catches his first glimpse of his wife to be. Listening to the bride and groom recite vows for each other that reflect what they are really going to try to do for each other (like walk the dog early on the weekends, clean off their spouse's car when it snows.) It’s an honour being the one who gets to announce for the very first time “Mr. and Mrs.” to everyone!
As your Officiant, I look forward to working together with you to create a memorable ceremony. I am here to assist you in any way I can, and I will do my best to answer your questions and help guide you in creating the ceremony of your dreams. I enjoy drawing on my experience as an actor and stage manager in community theatre, where I have been involved in hundreds of productions, events, and church services for over 20 years. I believe the ceremony should be a real, authentic celebration, not something that is a legal requirement. I believe that the ceremony should reflect your passions and style, not mine or your family and friends and should focus on your love and relationship as best friends. I believe that the ceremony should be a celebration of your relationship, not a promotion of religion. The wedding ceremony is about the bride and groom, not the guests or the Officiant. I believe that almost anything goes when it comes to the style or feel of the ceremony...so be creative and let’s do this!
