    Personalized ceremony from start to finish

    If you are looking for an Officiant/Celebrant for your wedding and would like a customized ceremony that fully encompasses who you are as a couple, look no further! Barbara has been absolutely amazing and beyond expectations from day One. We met with her a few times so she could get to know us, then we answered a bunch of questions via email, from there she put together the most beautiful and personalized ceremony for us. We were able to edit anything she had written; together, with her guidance, we created something beautiful and perfect for our wedding day.

    The perfect ceremony.

    I cannot say enough about the fantastic Barbara Densmore! We had Barbara create our wedding ceremony and it was more than we could have ever hoped for, so personal and heartfelt. Barbara took the time to get to know us as a couple, she spoke to our children and designed our ceremony to honestly reflect our life together. We will cherish her words forever!

    The Best Celebrant We Could’ve Asked For!

    My partner and I immediately hit it off with Barbara the first time we’ve met/emailed. We were having a small, Star Wars-ish wedding and she leapt into the concept 110%. She even dressed in Jedi robes for the ceremony! She held our hand throughout the entire process and made what would be a boring process so much more fun! All of our guests loved her, too!

    Would have her as our celebrant again 11/10.

    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.

    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!

    It was like being married by a lifelong friend!

    Although we never saw her in person since we live in Mexico and organized the wedding remotely via emails, facetime and whatsapp she understood us perfectly and managed to give us the most perfect moment we could imagine. She helped us create a bilingual ceremony (Spanish / English) for everyone to understand. All of our friends and family were moved, there was not a single dry eye at the end of the ceremony.
    THANKS! THANKS! THANKS!

    Amazing! The best officiant ever!

    I can’t express my immense gratitude to Barbara. From our first meeting we knew our wedding ceremony would be special and TAILORED to us . In my wildest dreams I couldn’t imagine a more perfect ceremony. It was meaningful, beautiful, emotional, magical and funny. My guest still talk about how it was the most romantic and beautiful ceremony they had EVER been to. You will not be disappointed with Barbara. Seriously. She’s so easy going and very professional. She does her research and includes things you would never even think about . Everyone participated in our ceremony and they felt a part of it. Honestly , 5 start isn’t enough. Thank you so much Barbara. Thank you for making our day the best day ever. Spencer & Shasha

    Incredible

    Barbara was absolutely lights-out fantastic. She was well-organized, well-articulated, well-spoken, punctual, and a pleasure to deal with throughout the planning process. Her creativity and knack for getting to know us in a couple of short meetings we're truly impressive. The ceremony itself went off without a hitch and we felt like we had really made the ceremony largely about us as a couple while still keeping everyone entertained and engaged throughout the whole ceremony. Several people approached us after the ceremony and said that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Barbara is an absolute rock-star.

    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.

    Love was the Center Stage

    Barbara did an exceptional job of grounding our family and creating space for us to be fully present in the moment. Everyone felt valued, sharing in this experience with us. Our ceremony brought together our favourite themes and by exploring these our family and closest friends were able to glimpse into our more private and tender sides. It was impossible to not feel the love in that space, it over flowed from every person. We couldn't be more thankful to Barbara for creating such a brilliant ceremony for us.
