NON DENOMINATIONAL WEDDING OFFICIANT
Non denominational wedding officiant services are my primary focus. And whether you prefer a civil ceremony, a completely secular non denominational ceremony, a traditionally religious ceremony or something in-between, I establish a warm, safe and joyful environment where you are free to create a beautiful and meaningful wedding experience with each other.
NON DENOMINATIONAL, CIVIL OR TRADITIONAL, IT’S YOUR CEREMONY. IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL.
Are you and/or your spouse-to-be one of the many people who consider themselves spiritual but not religious? You’re my people! I am a non denominational wedding officiant. I am also an ordained Unity minister. I understand the importance of ritual and how ritual can add meaning to your special moments. When you marry, you want a wedding ceremony which is memorable and which includes a sense of the sacred. You may have a desire to incorporate some of the wording of a traditional ceremony, such as “Dearly beloved, we are gathered…” and “you may kiss the bride” . You may also want to include secular words which are more reflective of you. Together we will custom design a beautiful and sacred wedding ceremony which suits your values, which reflects who you are and what matters to you. If you want to write your own vows or add something unique to your wedding ceremony, I can support you with ideas and wording suggestions. If your choice is a basic civil ceremony, I will use the ceremony outlined by the province of BC. Whether you choose a non denominational, civil or traditional wedding ceremony, rest assured that it will be beautiful.
Ceremonial elements such as a Unity candle lighting ceremony, sand ceremony or jumping the broom can add to the meaning and memory of your beautiful day. You may choose to involve your children or your guests in the ceremony by incorporating a group blessing, a song or other form of commitment. There are many ways to add symbolism and meaning to your wedding ceremony and make it unique for you.
Non denominational, civil or traditional, your wedding ceremony will be beautiful.
HE/HE, HE/SHE, SHE/SHE, THEY/THEY, THEY/SHE, THEY/HE: I TREASURE ALL RELATIONSHIPS
I officiate weddings for people who identify as straight or as members of the LGBTQ community.
What matters to me is this: you are a person in love, declaring your love and commitment for another through the beautiful act of marriage.
How lovely! How exciting! How special! I treasure relationships, and I celebrate with you. Congratulations and lifelong joy to you
I live in South Surrey and primarily serve the BC Lower Mainland including Vancouver, North Vancouver, Surrey, White Rock, Richmond, Burnaby, New Westminster, Delta, Abbotsford and Langley. Additional fees may apply to locations in BC outside of the Lower Mainland.
If you will be blending a family with children, consider involving the children in the ceremony. A commitment ceremony between the adults and the children can be a powerful way to honour the experience of children in a new family experience. The adults are not the only ones who are impacted by a new marriage. When you include the children in your new beginning, you provide reassurance that they are an important part of your marriage relationship.
