    Everything we hoped for in our wedding ceremony

    Barbara officiated our wedding ceremony in Victoria, BC, and it was everything we could've wanted! This was a destination wedding (we live in California), so we only got to meet her in person once, about a year before our wedding. Even after that quick coffee shop meeting, she seemed to clearly understand our vibe & what we're looking for. She was extremely responsive, she was prompt with email, did multiple (lengthy) video calls with us, and even practiced our entire ceremony via video call a few weeks before our wedding.
    Everything was extremely organized, she took care of printing out our vows, making sure we had mics (and knew how to use them in advance), coordinating with our planner & our bridal party to make sure everyone knew their role where necessary.
    We got a ton of compliments on our ceremony from our guests, and she did a great job of making us relaxed, keeping it human & conversational, and taking pauses so that we have a chance to look around and enjoy our own ceremony. I asked her for something meaningful, not boring, and not too long, and that's exactly what she delivered :) HIGHLY recommend.

    Wonderful wedding ceremony

    Barbara did an amazing job! The seeming stayed very true to us as a couple and she is very engaging! Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! She totally went with the flow (which was great cause we adlibbed a ton) and included everyone and knew everyone’s name. She is a very go with the flow kind of person, which we loved. She is also amazing at staying out of the way for the photographers! Overall a great experience!

    Absolutely amazing

    Barbara was all that we wanted and more. She took so much time and care to customize the wedding ceremony we dreamed of. She drew our group of family and friends together into a moment in time where everyone was just present. The space felt warm and full of love.

    Best choice we made!

    Barbara was absolutely fantastic. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to find a celebrant last minute. Luckily she had a spot open up in her calendar! She met with us in person and made us instantly feel at ease that she would be able to provide us with the kind of ceremony we wanted. We wanted something unique, inclusive and representative of our love for each other as well as each other's children- She delivered exactly what we had envisioned. We were blending families and she helped to create a ceremony which included all of the kids and helped us start off our new family perfectly. Every single person who attended the wedding commented on how beautiful and touching our ceremony was. My husband and I loved it and the kids did too. Everyone felt so included, it was incredible. She had such a warm, loving and unique approach to our wedding. I would very highly recommend her to anyone!

    Wee Wedding Ceremony in Cathedral Grove

    We had to change our wedding plans and location last minute and we stumbled upon Barbara while researching ceremonies in Cathedral Grove. Her “Wee Wedding” ceremony was exactly what we had in our minds. The ceremony that she wrote for us with our words was very beautiful and included all of our guests in some way. We in no way wanted a cookie cutter ceremony and what Barbara put together was so unique. She will not disappoint.
