Circles and Ceremonies was founded by Joanne Van Beek, a licensed wedding officiant operating out of Leduc, Alberta. As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, Joanne is a ceremonial and ritual specialist with specific training in creating highly personalized wedding ceremonies. Her mission is to capture the essence of the couple’s relationship, their personal beliefs, values and personality in a celebratory ceremony that fits them perfectly.
Utilizing several years’ worth of experience, Joanne has the ability to creatively weave the unique love story of a couple into each ceremony she presides over. Through her no-obligation consultation, she listens closely to couples and gets to know them in order to fully understand the vision they have for their wedding day. Whether you are saying “I do” for the first time, renewing vows, or devoting your life to your partner in a distinctive ceremony, Joanne can oblige. She designs one-of-kind romantic ceremonies, gives guidance to those writing personal vows, carries out rehearsals, and gifts each couple with a beautiful Keepsake Ceremony Script as a memento for their big day.

As a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant with specialization in officiating at Wedding Ceremonies, I help couples to create a wedding ceremony which tells their love story and reflects their personal values, beliefs and personality.
My Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant training comes from the Celebrant Foundation & Institute (CF&I), which offers the gold standard in Celebrancy education.
I am also an ordained Metaphysical Minister with Canadian International Metaphysical Ministries, and as Licensed Ceremony Officiant I am able to legally perform weddings in the province of Alberta.
I bring to my work as a Celebrant and Officiant many decades of experience listening to people’s stories, planning and organizing special events, designing ceremonies and rituals, teaching and public speaking in a variety of settings, leading women’s support groups and healing retreats, and experience working with diverse groups of people.
If you are looking for a Wedding Ceremony officiant, please give me a call. I work with all couples wanting a personal, memorable and meaningful ceremony to mark their special day – one that is as unique as your love relationship.
