Julie Tkachuk - Speaker & Writer


Welcome to my website! 

I have been a government-appointed Authorized 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 and ceremonies though, 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 can and do occur during ceremonies.    

With over a decade of experience as a Marriage Commissioner, 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 in your own back yard, in a tent, on a patio, at a park ... or maybe somewhere unique like centre ice, centre field, or in a playhouse? Are you a same sex couple? Or would you like to renew your vows?

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

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. 
They must be felt with the heart."  – Helen Keller
