    The best officiant we have EVER come across!

    Elizabeth was outstanding. Everyone at our wedding mentioned how memorable the ceremony was. Not to mention, our ability to craft the ceremony to our liking and really personalize it was something we didn't even know was possible. Elizabeth arrived well before the designated time, and was able to adjust when some unforeseen challenges arose. We would recommend Elizabeth to ANYONE!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Rachel and Nipuna,
    It was absolutely my pleasure working with you. Creating a bespoke ceremony for you was such a fun and rewarding experience for me. You were always so grateful and kind and I so appreciate all your wonderful comments along the way. I wish for you a long and happy life filled with love, friendship and adventure. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your beautiful day. Hugs, Elizabeth

    Officiant-Elizabeth Wiggins

    Elizabeth was exceptional! We had spontaneously decided on a Wednesday to get married on our boat on the upcoming Saturday, (2 & 1/2 days to plan). Elizabeth was so accommodating and efficient that we managed to pull it all together! She even stayed up late working on what she would say during our ceremony to personalize everything to Us. She even wrote in a few jokes/puns about the boat and the water, it was amazing! She truly was an absolute treat to work with and to have officiate the most beautiful, special day of our lives! I will highly recommend her to anyone!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Merissa and Brad,

    Thank you for your wonderful review! It always warms my heart when I get to work with fun couples like yourselves. You knew what you wanted but you left the door open for me to be creative on the fly. I had never married anyone on the bow of their boat before out in the water - so thank you for giving me the opportunity of such a fun and spontaneous experience. It was a memorable day for you both and also a day I won't ever forget!! It just goes to show how fast a wedding can be pulled together and I applaud you for your wonderful organizational abilities!! May happiness hug your both, forever. Hugs, Elizabeth :)

    So special and unique

    Elizabeth worked with us throughout the pandemic, over zoom and phone calls to create a special, unique ceremony that captured our love in a meaningful and wonderful way. She really took the time to get to know us and it reflected in our day. With her help we picked a tree planting ceremony that felt like us and a reading that was beautiful and special. We couldn’t have done this without her!! She was amazing, kind and always professional. Do not hesitate to book her!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Thank you Michelle and Nick for your wonderful review! I think it is very important to work as a team and we were a great team. I loved creating your ceremony to include the beginning of you as a couple to this moment in time and to touch your hearts and those of your guests. I truly hope our paths cross again. May every day from here prove to be just as magical as your wedding day. Hugs and all that good stuff, Elizabeth :)

    July 2022 Vow Renewal

    After getting “officially” married in 2021 we recently had our vow renewal in 2022 with Elizabeth as our officiant. We were unsure what to expect but Elizabeth helped to ensure a beautiful day and ceremony. She took the time to get to know us and added fun & personal details which made the ceremony much more intimate and memorable.

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Danielle and Matthew,
    Thank you for taking the time to review my ceremonial services for your recent vow renewal ceremony. It was my pleasure to be able to help you celebrate the wedding you didn't get to have last year. Wishing you a long and happy life together. :) Warmly, Elizabeth

    An Amazing Officiant!

    With having a small, intimate wedding during covid19, I remember feeling so lost at the start of our wedding planning, but as soon as we met Elizabeth, the whole process of creating our ceremony was made so easy and fun. We knew our wedding day was going to be special for ourselves and everyone in it.

     My husband and I could not thank Elizabeth enough for the beautiful ceremony she led us through. We got SO many compliments on the ceremony and everyone who attended felt the love!

    We feel so fortunate and grateful to have found Elizabeth and have her with us on our special day.

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Sarah and Tyler, thank you for your wonderful review! What a beautiful day you had and I am honoured to have been a part of it. I loved all of your fun reactions during the ceremony and the love you share is evident to all. It just goes to show that no matter what the hurdle is, love does win in the end. May you continue to laugh, celebrate, and love each other - for the rest of your lives. Sending hugs. :) Warmly, Elizabeth

    Perfect match for our intimate wedding

    My husband and I had a private ceremony in October and Elizabeth made our day so special. Despite the conditions due to COVID, she was very supportive and reassuring throughout to make sure we had everything covered. Her ceremony was personal and sweet and her delivery set a wonderful tone. I would say I'd love to have her again, but we plan on only needing her once!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Tianna and Alexander,

    Thank you for your kind and warm review! It was my absolute pleasure to work with you to create a meaningful ceremony that had all the perfect pieces for you. I chuckle at your last sentence. I truly feel you will only need me once as well but down the road, maybe a vow renewal to celebrate? :) Hugs and Happiness is wished for you always. Warmly, Elizabeth

    Wonderful elopement ceremony

    Elizabeth was a delight to work with for our last-minute, intimate elopement. She created a short and sweet ceremony that captured our relationship so well. She was very responsive, helpful, and communicative in the days leading up to the ceremony , and flexible with the last-minute nature of our planning. Would highly recommend!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Kira and Stefan,

    Thank you for your wonderful review! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to place such kind words for all to see. You also were a delight to work with and I immensely enjoyed writing and performing your ceremony. I loved your first dance together on the dock and it was truly one of a kind moment. May you continue to dance through life, together - hand in hand. Hugs, Elizabeth

    Exceptional Service

    Elizabeth is extremely good at what she does. She has a way of making you feel special and making sure all needs are met. She paid so much attention to detail about our lives and our love story leading up to our wedding day. Our guests were completely shocked how much she new about us from only sitting down and chatting for a few hours at a coffee shop. Elizabeth did an amazing job of formulating a written love story to share with my husband and I and our guests. The ceremony was truly magical, all thanks to her. 10/10 and then some, amazing job Elizabeth!!

    Elizabeth Wiggins, Life-Cycle Celebrant's reply:

    Dear Erika & Johnny,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It always means so much to me when couples take the time to share their thoughts. I have the best job as a Celebrant - I get to meet amazing couples like you both and to learn about you, your time together thus far, and what your goals are for the future. It is a true collaboration and I sincerely hope we cross paths again. It also warms my heart knowing that your guests loved your ceremony and made a point to tell me so as well as telling you. Welcome to the rest of your happy lives - Mr. & Mrs. :)
