    Professional and Flexible

    We couldn't of asked for anything more from Barb. She was professional but let us be us. She created the perfect ceremony that reflected our personalities and vision for our wedding. She kept calm in last minute music confusion and helped us breathe and relax and enjoy! I would recommend Barb to anyone looking for a unique and special ceremony.

    You know what I loved about you 2? You had a clear vision for your wedding, what you wanted it to be. It was out-of-the-box. And TOTALLY you. And we fit your ceremony right inside it...nice and snug. And boisterous...:) I can still hear the cheering...ha ha.

    Beyond perfect experience

    Barbara was phenomenal, from her thoughtful words, her considered guidance of the ceremony to her flexibility and willingness for adventure! Brad and I had a simple and private elopement and it was so beyond anything we had ever expected due to Barbara’s care. While it’s still fresh, we are so stoked with how the ceremony went and would do it all again exactly the same - thank you so much, Barbara!!!!!

    I'm still blown away by how the perfect setting and time chose you. Actually, the perfect settingS, given how we did your ceremony in steps. And how absolutely present you were. It was all so wondrous. Such a privilege to be part of.

    Barbara is Fantastic

    Barbara is an amazing person and jumped into action to provide a quick, yet very personal and heartfelt wedding ceremony for us.

    She was professional, flexible, friendly and more than willing to help.

    I found it so easy to open up to Barbara and tell her details of our lives, and she drew on our conversation and what I shared to help create a perfect ceremony.

    Thank you Barbara!!!

    In 2 days, we managed to pull together the coolest Dr Who surprise handfasting. You were so much fun to work with, Kurtis! You even pulled off the bow tie! We were a pretty good team..:)

    Barbara knocks it out of the park

    Barbara was amazing! She took our vague concept of the ceremony we wanted and turned it into something beyond what we could have hoped for. We’ve had so many compliments on how warm, welcoming, funny and engaging our ceremony was. Barbara made my husband and I feel so comfortable that we were present and enjoying every moment. We’ve also had people asking for her details for their own weddings - she is that good!

    Wow, the energy in your ceremony was really unforgettable. Everyone right there for you. You were so present. You even ad-libbed...when a couple is that comfortable, my heart wants to burst out of my chest. I so LOVED working with you both.

    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.

    Heartfelt, Just for Us

    We were the best of friends for 3 years and have been together 21 years as a couple. We have raised a family together, faced family health issues, death of loved ones and pets, provided hospice for parents in our home, tackled the legal system of WorkSafe (and won) - we've been busy. We have talked about doing the deed many times over the years but for one reason or another, the timing wasn't right. In October, we talked again, chose a date and began planning our wee wedding (8 people)

    It felt right and we wanted to take time to celebrate and honour one another, our lives so far and our future. Barbara heard our desires as a mature couple, and crafted a beautiful ceremony that caught the essence of our experience, our deep love for one another and our excitement for our very long married life. Barbara wove quotes and spirituality to reflect who we are to one another and that even in your 60's, one can love, truly, madly and deeply and look forward to more life together. She was always available for consult and guidance. Barbara's thought provoking questionnaire began a two month process of happy tears, increased awareness and deepening appreciation for one another and set the stage and our hearts for our special day. We are most appreciative for Barbara's gentle heart and caring spirit and her talents and skills as our Celebrant.

    If you choose Barbara as your Officiant/Celebrant/Minister, know that you will be well cared for, that you will feel honoured and valued during the process and most especially at your ceremony.

    We wish you a joyous journey and many, many years of health, happiness and prosperity in your new lives together as Mr. & Mrs.

    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!

    AMAZING! still get compliments about our wedding.

    I feel so bad this has taken so long to write!! sorry Barbara!
    We hired Barbara to be our officiant for our wedding in Tofino this past September and I am so grateful we did. I know we spend all this money on the venue, food, booze, flowers and all the typicals but everyone seems to cheap out on the officiant. Both me and my husband wanted our wedding to be something different. I lost my mother 11 years ago and incorporating her, and all the other 'moms' that helped raise me, into the ceremony was so important to me. The day was perfect and I do believe the ceremony set the tone for the mood for the rest of the celebrations. I highly recommend this woman if you want a wedding ceremony that your guests will talk about for months/years after. I already look to booking her again for our vow renewal in 10 years. Barb thank you!! your thank you card has not been forgotten haha...life just got hectic and we still need to send them out!

    xoxo Laura & Chris
