About

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

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!

    Isaac and Constanza
