    Wedding Ceremonies
    A wedding is one of life’s defining moments. What is your dream ceremony? What will make it memorable? As your Officiant, I am here to ensure that you and your partner have the best of Wedding Days: what will be spoken; what music will be played; will you exchange rings and vows; will it be a long ceremony with a processional or a short simple ceremony: will friends or relatives participate in the ceremony? With my help and guidance to ensure a a personally unique and memorable ceremony. I will also ensure that all the legal requirements for your wedding are met.

    I am always available any day of the week to officiate at ceremonies. Those ceremonies can be arranged either in advance or as spontaneous, short-notice civil/elopement weddings. I'm happy to perform ceremonies throughout the beautiful Ottawa and the surrounding areas. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.

    LGBTQ+ Friendly
    - All Marriages Matter – Love is Love is Love –
    This is your day. Your public declaration of your love is the most important day of your lives. It should happen your way, exactly your way. I will be here to ensure that your ceremony is exactly as you dreamed.
    Renewal of Vows
    Many couples may want to renew their vows and love for each other on the occasion of a special anniversary. I can prepare a personalized ceremony to be performed at a special location of their choice.

    What is the process?
    So, let’s get start planning “now.” We can start by email, a phone chat and then a face to face meeting. Tell me what you want, about yourselves and together we will make it happen, your perfect wedding day, just as we have planned it. By the end of the process,  you will have a draft ceremony which we will fine tune with your selections. You will know word for word your ceremony, exactly how it will unfold and have final approval.
