    Fantastic Officiant!

    Barbara was a fantastic choice for our wedding! She was always professional, she took the time to meet with us and review our ceremony in advance of the big day and she exceeded our expectations on the big day! Our guests commented on how fun, bright and warm she was - she definitely made us feel at ease while standing in front of everyone. She took the time to really get to know us and developed a very personalized ceremony for us, which was very appreciated. For anyone looking for a secular officiant, we would recommend Barbara 100%!

    Just was our family needed

    Barbara was so friendly and our ceremony was everything we could have imagined. She was very accommodating with timing for the recap calls and the rehearsal. We have 6 children so it was so so nice to not feel pressure. Barbara was able to capture our story in our vows and it was very personalized and just the right amount of funny which we loved! she is very well versed and fantastic infont of audience. My husband said she was a life saver while standing up there alone waiting for the wedding to start.. she told him jokes and helped him feel more comfortable while waiting in front of everyone. Thankyou for making our day memorable!

    A fantastic ceremony

    We made contact with Barbara through wedding wire and from start to finish her service was excellent. This was a potentially tricky ceremony to judge with a large UK contingent on the grooms side, and a Canadian bride. From our initial video call Barbara understood what we were going for, and she was really flexible to our suggestions.
    On the day the ceremony ran perfectly and there was lots of positive feedback from guests on both sides of the pond.
    We would recommend Barbara to anyone.

    Great officiating

    My husband and I decided to get married at city hall, we gave Barbara two weeks notice, she was very flexible, easy to work with and pulled off a beautiful ceremony in no time. We definitely recommend Barbara’s services.
