    Truly Happy and Satisfied

    Amazing service. We are beyond happy with how our ceremony went. She made it so personable to us also!!

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Kristina, the abundance of love surrounding you two was breathtaking.

    As you approached the altar, I couldn't help but be overcome with emotion as I witnessed the obvious love that you two feel for each other.

    Thank you for allowing me to be part of such an incredible memory.

    Lovely intimate wedding!

    We got married at Clarity Ranch on August 1st, 2021 soon after some COVID restrictions were lifted. Our families aren't in Canada so, we couldn't go back home any time soon so, we decided to invite our friends to our special day and have a short and simple marriage ceremony right here in Canada. Rev Claudine and her husband both have kind and beautiful souls. They hosted us in their wonderful farm with all the warmth we could possibly expect. Rev. Claudine made sure we got all we wanted in every step of the process. The wedding day itself is an amazing memory for both of us, we and Claudine were closely monitoring the weather forecast and figured there is going to be a thunderstrom on the wedding day. We had already planned so many things so, we couldn't really move up the date. They had set up a beautiful waterproof tent for us. Once we got there, the sun was out so we and the guests started photographing as much as we could, then the pouring rain started, thank god we had a beautiful tent to keep us nice and dry. Rev. Claudine performed our marriage with beautiful words and we also got a copy of the keepsake after that. Everything including the marriage ceremony went smoothly and we experienced three different beautiful weather conditions. If you ever decide to get married at Clarity Ranch, I assure you Rev. Claudine and her husband will do whatever they can to make your special day memorable for you. Right from the beginning, you'll just enjoy having a conversation with them and you feel like they are part of your family. Helia and Sobhan

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Helia and Sobhan, hosting you at the ranch was such a joy. Having the opportunity to help you celebrate with your friends was such a wonderful memory for both me and my husband. Hearing the laughter and music, and watching everyone enjoy the nature and animals on our property just reiterated why I love what I do. It was such a smart plan to delay the start of the ceremony to get your photos taken. Bravo! That was certainly a rainstorm to remember. Your photos turned out beautifully too!

    Congratulations again on your marriage. I wish you so many
    blessings for your life together!

    Lovely Ceremony

    We had our ceremony on their property and everything went as planned. Rev. Claudine is a very welcoming, hospitable, and professional officiant. Although we had many concerns because of the Covid situation and constraints in place, we worked together to address all the concerns and make it a very special, beautiful, and memorable wedding.
    Since many of our family members could not make it to our wedding, Rev. Claudine made it possible for us to live stream our ceremony, and it was a great idea.
    We searched a lot for finding the best officiant and place for our ceremony, and now we are really happy with our choice.

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    It was absolutely my pleasure to be part of your special day and host you on our property. I love that we can tie in technology and have live stream options for those who are not able to be present.

    It warms my heart to be able to continue to create wonderful memories even during less-than-ideal times. Congratulations again!

    Amazing service

    Rev. Claudine was amazing! She performed our wedding ceremony just the way we wanted. She is very kind, helpful and professional, and have treated us graciously at all times. I completely recommend her services!

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words!

    It was an honour to be part of your love story. It also warmed my heart to hear the cheers from your friends and family who couldn't be with you. I love that I could marry you while you "married" hi-tech with high-touch!

    Congratulations again!

    Best Wedding Ever

    Very personable and loving atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for more. Rev. Claudine wrote our ceremony by telling our story, and gave our family a beautiful and special day we will never forget. Be sure to say hello to Ryan Gosling if you visit the Ranch!

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    I will forever remember the inaugural ceremony at Clarity Ranch, and couldn't have asked for a better couple to share that with. Thank you for allowing me so much freedom with telling your story. "Ryan Gosling" is waiting patiently for a post-wedding visit!

    Vow renewal

    Claudine performed an intimate vow renewal ceremony for our 20th wedding anniversary with my husband and I and our two daughters. She met at Chateau des Charmes where we were married 20 years ago. During the ceremony Claudine spoke beautiful words to all four us and it was an emotional ceremony. I have already recommended Claudine to friends and family. She also presented us with a beautiful gift basket and a keepsake copy of the ceremony! Claudine really added such a special touch and made this a beautiful day that we will cherish forever!

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Erin, it was an absolute honour to be part of your and Mike's milestone anniversary. Your love, respect, and adoration for each other was undeniable, and also reflected in the tearful eyes of your two lovely daughters. Thank you for entrusting me to deliver your recommitment message. I hope to be able to celebrate future milestones with your family and friends.

    The best you can get!

    We had Rev. Claudine officiate our intimate wedding ceremony in Niagara and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! She was great to work with and perfectly executed what we were looking for (an elopement style ceremony with a small group of guests). She went above and beyond in putting together a beautiful script for the ceremony and making our day even more memorable. We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our day!

    The best officiant ever

    Rev. Claudine is amazing. She is genuinely passionate about what she does and is a fabulously gifted writer and public speaker.
    When our plans with our original officiant fell through, we reached out to several officiants on Wedding Wire, and as soon as we got a reply from Rev. Claudine we knew it would be a great fit. She eased all of our concerns right off the bat and was incredibly kind, understanding, knowledgeable, and FUN, while her professionalism ensured that the whole process went smoothly from start to finish.
    We received so many compliments on our ceremony. Our guests were amazed when we told them that we had not even met Rev. Claudine in-person before the ceremony. The way she spoke about us and our love, everyone was under the impression that she must have known us personally for many years. The cadence, substance, and clarity of her speech was so ideal that the older and younger guests alike were equally pleased with both what she said and how she said it. Rev. Claudine's loving demeanor magnified the intimacy of our celebration and because of her, our wedding ceremony was so much more magical, romantic, and perfect than we ever even dreamed it could be.

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Ohhhhh Liz. Once again, you made me cry. Your words fill my heart to overflowing and I feel completely honoured that our stars aligned so that I could be the one to share your beautiful love story.

    When you two are off camping and sitting on a rocky hillside, staring up at the stars, the brightest star is me winking at you. Sending you the biggest hugs.

    Rev. Claudine

    Perfect Wedding

    Claudine is a beautiful person. She cared about my wife and I and our very special day as if we were children of her own. She went out of her way to solidify every detail, and make sure everything was perfect. She spent time getting to know us which made our ceremony speech so beautiful, bringing many to tears. She went above and beyond her role to make sure everything overall was perfect. I can't speak highly enough about this amazing woman and can't thank her enough for making our special day feel so truly perfect.

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Oh, you two! Yours was a ceremony (in my opinion) that checked all of the boxes for a perfect wedding--Laughter, tears, silliness and, who can forget that rebellious veil! Caitlyn's pure and hearty laugh as her veil tried to escape the union encapsulated her spirit and set the tone for the rest of the ceremony.

    If I could marry you two again, I would! So let's do vow renewals annually, okay? My German will just keep getting better and better each time!

    Huge hugs!
    Reverend-Mama Claudine

Did you know that you can get married in the comfort of your own home or location of your choice instead of heading out to city hall? Most are surprised at the cost savings of privately exchanging vows versus the alternative. (Mileage rates may apply.)

Don't want the fuss of having it at home? Then why not grab your witnesses and take a scenic drive out to the country and exchange vows at Clarity Ranch surrounded by nature! (Great for photos too!)

Wedding Officiant

“I love love!”

Originally from British Columbia, Rev. Claudine spent many years traveling and experiencing different countries and cultures. Although she called BC her home, she never truly felt as though she belonged there. It wasn’t until following her heart to a new city that she began to feel herself becoming the woman she was meant to be. Happily settled in Ontario since 2008, Rev. Claudine has never looked back, and can’t imagine living anywhere else than the quaint hobby farm she maintains with her husband in Wellandport.

Commonly referred to in her community as “The Duck Whisperer,” a few moments with Rev. Claudine while she introduces you to her team of ducks, horses, cats, dogs, and the newest addition to the family—Ryan Gosling (the vocally boisterous African goose), you’ll know what kind of a down-to-earth person she is.

Love and animals aren’t Rev. Claudine’s only passions, she is also a writer. Her blogs on family, marriage, relationships, mental health, and current events are continually added to her website while she continues penning her future novel and children’s series.

A few short moments on the phone (or at your first meeting) with Rev. Claudine, her compassion and sincerity will make you feel like you are with a close friend or family member. (The kind of family member you actually like to spend time with.) Rev. Claudine’s huge heart shines brightly through her eyes, and her love of painting pictures with her words makes her ceremonies unforgettable.
