An integral part of our wedding!
We could not have had a better experience with Barbara as our fabulous celebrant! We met Barbara in January, and in the chaos that was 2020 she helped us create and plan not one, not two, but three wedding ceremonies. Barbara's process really helped us to explore our feelings and intentions for our marriage, and she used that information to create an intimate and personalized wedding ceremony that truly reflected us as people and as a couple. Due to COVID-19, many of our family members and friends couldn't attend our ceremony. Barbara came up with engaging ways to involve everyone from a distance, and even sent some sneak peak photos out after our ceremony! This really took the pressure off of my partner and I to communicate immediately, and allowed everyone to really feel involved and valued.Sent on 11/12/2020
Barbara was so professional, flexible and responsive throughout our experience working with her. We can't recommend her highly enough! We look forward to additional opportunities to use her services to celebrate future milestones. Thank you so much Barbara for being such an integral part of our journey this year!

Incredible talent and so accommodating!
We were referred to Barbara by a friend who had been a client of hers previous. We came with a tall order: Could you create a custom ceremony for us, perform it for us in Victoria to legally marry us, give it to us to take to Mexico so that someone who has never preformed a wedding can complete it for us in front of friends and family!? Haha.Sent on 18/12/2019
Barbara has an incredible vision when it comes to her writing, she was able to piece together the information we provided her to create a ceremony that felt so personal and specific to us - it was like she had known us our entire relationship. Not only was it beautiful, but she went above and beyond by creating a ceremony that could be easily duplicated by someone with no experience. Barbara went out of her way to create a book with the ceremony that also included cue's and helpful tips for our family member performing it in Mexico. We couldn't have been happier with the result and will be recommending her again and again! You will be so happy with your choice to hire Barbara. Thank-you for everything!

Every guest agreed, best ceremony they have ever been to.
If you want a custom ceremony, that speaks directly to who you are as a couple, dynamically engages your family and friends, and is set up for amazing photos, working with Barbara is exactly what you should do.
From the first phone call, Barbara was personable and lovely and made us feel like comfortable and taken care of. She seamlessly Incorporated our ideas with her own.
In preparing for the ceremony she sends a number of questions, which she uses in great detail to build a one of a kind, dream ceremony, unique to you as a couple. When I first read ours, I laughed, cried, and was simply overcome with how well she got us as a couple.
In the ceremony she, thoughtfully moves around to ensure the photographer can capture the couple, without her being in it.
All of our guests talked about how amazing she was.
She was the best.
Thank you for the best ceremony ever.Sent on 03/10/2019

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.Sent on 29/08/2019
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!Sent on 05/05/2019
