Welcome to my website! 

I have been a government appointed Marriage Commissioner since 2005 and I have officiated at more than 1,600 civil (non-religious) wedding ceremonies.  That is a lot of weddings isn't it?

After all these years, I still love officiating and find that, because of intimate or humorous moments between couples and/or their families, my eyes still get watery at times.  Very comfortable in front of groups and behind a microphone, I am "quick on my feet" and can easily and spontaneously make light of those unexpected events that often occur during ceremonies.    

With over a decade of experience as an officiant, my familiarity with Edmonton's wedding venues, attention to detail, organizational skills and absolute commitment to having fun, booking me will ensure that your ceremony is as stress-free as possible. 

Your Wedding

Will yours be a large wedding at a rented venue  with many attendants and guests?  Would you prefer a small ceremony with just two witnesses present?  Do you want to be married somewhere unique, in your own back yard, indoors, outdoors, in a tent or on a patio?  Same-sex ceremony?  Or would you like to renew your vows?

Whatever the size or style of your wedding, my warm, professional service and my ability to quickly put people at ease will ensure that your ceremony flows smoothly and is an enjoyable, meaningful, warm and memorable event.
