About Barbara Densmore, Certified Celebrant & Wedding Officiant

Your wedding just might be the most planetary, real-deal, sincerely meaningful, and heart-bursting life moment you will ever share with the people you love. What if your ceremony was like that? What if the celebration began WITH the ceremony, not AFTER it?

Barbara Densmore (that's me) is a modern Metaphysical Minister, a celebrant and licenced wedding officiant who will make sure you are breathing properly/grounded before your ceremony begins (so you don't miss it), and ensure that everyone is fully there for you in your big moment (so they don't miss it.)

Barbara is the choice of couples who want to intentionally marry each other. And who want to work with a professional who aims to make that life moment planetary, real-deal, sincerely meaningful, and heart-bursting...and whatever other words will describe it best for you.

    Perfectly personalized and intimate day

    We wanted a personal, intimate ceremony and that is exactly what we got. We live in a different city but were able to connect with Barbara by video and very quickly we were comfortable talking with her as she took our scattered ideas and gave us some great plans. She makes it easy to develop meaningful, personal vows, and really tailored the whole day to our vision. Everyone was at ease and enjoyed the ceremony with touching moments and laughter throughout. She was also great with the kids and worked them seamlessly into the day as we had hoped. Thank you for making our day so memorable Barbara!

    Barbara was Amazing! Ceremony was Personalized and Inclusive!

    Barbara provided a personalized wedding ceremony for us that included our family and friends. She was easy to work with and was prompt with answering questions and providing recommendations. She was able to collaborate with both of us and use content that made the ceremony special for all. Barbara provided a printout of the reading, printed cards for the vows and provided her own sound system that was very effective to carrying the ceremony in an outdoor setting. We had fantastic reviews from our guests on the ceremony. I would highly recommend Barbara to anyone, she is also a wonderful lady.

    Personalized speech that got to the heart of us

    Barbara married my partner and I as part of the vow cabin. She reached out early with some great questions about our relationship. We found the style very comfortable and it was easy to talk to Barbara over email. On the day of, she was very professional, but kept things light hearted. And made sure to check in about the pronunciation of everyone's names, which is greatly appreciated. We were both very impressed with how personalized she was able to make the speech based on our questions and got to the heart of why were getting married. We felt she really got us :)

    Barbara Nailed It!!

    Our experience with Barbara could not have been better. Truly, it couldn't have been better. She was absolutely amazing to work with. Right from Day 1, she was supportive, honest and made us feel at ease. She made our wedding ceremony beautiful and special and perfectly crafted to us. Our ceremony was unique, meaningful, emotional, funny and goofy at times, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. Barbara has wonderful suggestions and will come up with different ideas to suit you, she puts so much into your ceremony. From planning to execution to following up with you afterward, she just thinks of every detail and makes sure everything goes smoothly. All of our guests were blown away with our ceremony and asking about Barbara. Everyone could see just how much work and care went into it.
    We just can't say enough good things about Barbara and we hope we will have an excuse to work with her again one day. Barbara, we truly could not have done this without you.. thank you so much
