    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!

    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!

    She really loves love.

    Our intimate wedding dream was made complete by Claudine. Not only did she create a ceremony with love, laughter and tears, she told our love story. There is no doubt that Claudine loves doing what she does and that she wants each of her couples to have the most memorable day. Claudine provided an exceptional service right from our initial contact through to the end of the ceremony and questions thereafter related to our licensing. She provided us with questionnaires for my husband and me to share information as a couple and as individuals. She assisted us at our rehearsal and took care of my groom and his nerves on the day of. We have received numerous compliments about Claudine. She has not only provided us with a memorable day but our guests as well.

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Chrystal, it has been such a blessing since you entered my life and an overwhelming honour that you would entrust me to tell your love story. It has been a joy to be a passenger during your journey to meeting and marrying your forever-husband. The bond between you two is undeniable, and although you met later in life, it gave you the time to grow into who each of you deserved. Congratulations on finding your way "home."

    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!

    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!

    Responsive, easy going, reassuring & professional

    Rev. Claudine was absolutely amazing! She preformed our wedding ceremony despite the pouring rain! She is responsive, easy going, reassuring and professional. Claudine made our day very special and took the time to get to know us and personalize our ceremony! We would highly recommend Claudine to any couple planning a wedding!

    Clarity Ranch Ministry's reply:

    Allie, it was such a pleasure getting to know both of you and your love story. I feel so honoured to have become one of the markers on the life path you two are on. Through rain, or sleet, or snow, Rev. Claudine will always show. :-D

    Continue to nurture your relationship with as much passion as you had up until your wedding day. With a commitment like yours, the blessings will be plenty!

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.
