I am a Government-Appointed Marriage Commissioner authorized by Service Alberta, Vital Statistics to perform civil (non-religious) marriage ceremonies. Since my first appointment in 2005, I have officiated at more than 1,700 weddings and am often told by couples and guests that mine is the most beautiful civil ceremony they have ever heard.
Are you planning a large wedding at a rented venue with many guests? Would you prefer a small ceremony with just two witnesses present? Do you want to be married in your own back yard, at a park, or somewhere unique like centre ice, centre field or a streetcar? Are you a same-sex couple? Or would you like to renew your vows?
Whatever the size or style of your ceremony, my wealth of experience and desire to have fun will ensure that yours is a stress-free, smooth-flowing, enjoyable event.
"Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." – Franklin P. Jones
Just for fun: The well-known expression, "Tie the Knot", means to get married and it originates from the ancient Celtic custom of handfasting. In this symbolic ritual, the newly-wedded couple had their hands loosely bound together with an eternity knot.
