How I Work

Ceremony Creation
cw-whitespace-row1
I will create a meaningful ceremony that is all about you and celebrates you as a couple.

As soon as we confirm that we are a good fit and we agree to work together, I focus on getting to know you both, your love story and what is important to you for your special day.

Images and symbols convey powerful messages. I research various cultural rituals, symbols and traditions that may carry meaning for you and reflect the commitment you are making. Then, in close consultation with you, I develop and write your wedding ceremony, commitment or vow renewal celebration to reflect your values, beliefs, traditions, wishes and promise to each other.

We will consider the people who are important to you so your ceremony can be designed to involve and engage them in celebrating your commitment, in the way you wish. If this means working with you to create and hold a bilingual ceremony, in English and another language of your choice, I happily do so.

Your ceremony may be conventional or unconventional in its tone or theme; it may be simple or elaborate; spiritual or earthy; with or without religious references. It may involve children or elders; it may be single gender or gender neutral.

I confer with you throughout the process, however often or long it takes. I will continue to develop and revise your ceremony until you are completely happy with the result.

Officiating the Ceremony
cw-whitespace-row1
On the day, I will ensure all the elements of the ceremony are organized and all participants are ready and on track to achieve as seamless a ceremony as possible.
cw-whitespace-row1
I will preside at and guide the enactment of the ceremony. I will witness your vows of commitment or solemnize your legal marriage. As your wedding officiant, I will sign your marriage or vow renewal certificate, and register a legal marriage with the Province of Ontario.

Afterwards, I will give you an attractive digital keepsake copy of your ceremony.
