About

A Lifetime to Celebrate is a wedding officiant company operating out of Courtenay, British Columbia.

http://www.alifetimetocelebrate.ca

Shafia Jamodien is a life-cycle celebrant certified by the International Celebrant Foundation and Institute.

She is passionate about creating unforgettable experiences for her clients as they celebrate life's milestones with friends, family, and community.

INCLUSIVITY is my other name. I would encourage and welcome diversity in all its fragrances. I wish to officiate at an all inclusive ceremony of ceremonies in my lifetime. I immigrated from South Africa 25 years ago with my two young children and I am forever grateful for the opportunity of raising my children on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I am of multi-cultural ancestry and love interacting with people from all backgrounds. I am a natural story-teller and will perform your love-story with a wholeness of being.

Services Offered

Shafia will incorporate personal traditions and elements into your ceremony to ensure a fully tailored experience. Consultation appointments can be arranged ahead of time, affording you the opportunity to share your ideas and inspirations with Shafia. Shafia also encourages couples to compose their own vows, allowing you and your beloved to express your love for one another on your joyous day.

I offer my services in gratitude to the process of ritual and ceremony in creating an experience of a lifetime.

    Peaceful. Full with love and meaning.

    Working with Shafia as our wedding officiant felt so fun and comfortable! She was able to capture our essence as a couple, all the while weaving playfulness, ritual, and meaning into a unique and authentic ceremony.

    Shafia is a keeper of sacred spaces. Her kind heart and soothing presence were exactly what we needed during such an important life experience. We feel very blessed to have had her as a wise and loving guide!

Offer

ELOPEMENT is an intimate affair, so why wait when you can get married in spontaneity plus have a Life-Cycle Celebrant conduct your marriage to your heart's content.

I am offering a package to all would-be elopement couples to consider my offer; $500 for a complete elopement package which means that vows will be confirmed and documents signed plus some poetry reading or ritual to go with the ceremony. You choose the venue, anyway on Vancouver Island. Pay for my mileage to and from the venue, if I need to stay-over, client to cover my hotel stay. My regular wedding package is $900.00 plus additional $200 for a rehearsal. Due to Covid and uncertain times, I am offering this package to elopement couples for only $500 plus you cover my mileage costs. Fair enough? Call Shafia Jamodien at 250.792.0061 if you would like a one-on-one zoom consultation or in-person consultation. I look forward to officiating at your wedding.
