A True Gift

As we reflect on our wedding day, one truth remains undeniable – Francesca's impact on our celebration was profound and everlasting. Her presence added an irreplaceable dimension of love, joy, and meaning to our union. From start to finish, she demonstrated not only her skill as a wedding celebrant but also her genuine passion for creating unforgettable moments.

From the moment we connected with her, her genuine warmth and infectious joy made us feel like old friends. Francesca's exceptional organizational skills and unwavering professionalism further solidified our trust in her abilities.

Francesca's words were like poetry. Her ability to craft and deliver a ceremony that resonated with us on such a profound level was incredible. Her heartfelt words weren't just spoken; they were felt by every soul present, creating an atmosphere of love and connection that will forever remain etched in our memories.

One of the most heartwarming aspects of our experience with Francesca was her collaboration with Ren's stepfather. Being new to the role of guiding the ceremony, he needed guidance and support. Francesca stepped in with her innate grace and patience, nurturing his confidence and ensuring that he flawlessly contributed to our special day. Her dedication to making everyone feel comfortable and valued is a testament to her character.

Francesca's enthusiasm for incorporating our best dog Apollo, as the ring bearer was so wonderful. The sight of Apollo trotting down the aisle with the rings was so moving.

& Meeting Francesca's own doggie during cocktail hour was an unexpected delight! It was a charming reminder of the special bond that humans share with their four-legged friends.

Francesca's warmth, organization, and remarkable ability to evoke emotions through words make her an extraordinary wedding celebrant.
Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude for the role she played in making our day so incredibly special. The memories she helped us create will forever be cherished, and we can confidently say that anyone who has the privilege of working with her is truly blessed.

Francesca is the officiant for a memorable ceremony

Francesca is warm, kind, flexible and professional. We could not have asked for a better ceremony! We received so many compliments about how meaningful and beautiful our ceremony was and Francesca really did justice to our love story and what led us to this point. From the preparation time, initial phone calls to finalizing the last details, Francesca did not miss a beat. If you're looking for warmth, intimacy, depth and an impactful ceremony, you have come to the right place and my husband and I could not recommend her enough. Thank you for everything you did for us, Francesca. We will forever be grateful to have crossed path, which in turn, has led to having you be a part of one of the best day of our lives.

Hands down the best!

Francesca is a gem! Within minutes of our phone consult we knew we had found our perfect officiant. She listens and really tries to get to know her clients so that she can do her job in the best possible way. She presented us beautifully, keeping it lighthearted, fun and meaningful. Our friends and family had so many wonderful things to say about our ceremony. We couldn’t recommend Francesca more!

We Couldn't Have Done it Without Her

We knew from the first interaction with Francesca that she was the one to officiate our wedding. She was so attentive and really took the time to get to know us and our story. This made for the most lovely ceremony, which all our friends and family loved and complimented. In addition to officiating, she went above and beyond... No thanks to the current situation (the c word), we had a few last minute bumps in our original plan and Francesca literally saved the day by introducing us to some people who kindly helped us out. In the end, everything was perfect and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. We are over the moon with how it all panned out and would choose Francesca over and over again.

Lovely Love Party!

From my first emails with Francesca, I was greeted with a warm and fun vibe that extended to every aspect of the ceremony planning and execution. She carefully read all of our notes, incorporated special requests with enthusiasm (e.g., a land acknowledgement, ring warming ritual, and a personalized poem), and even checked in with us leading up to the big day. She really got to know us and our pup, and made everyone feel included in the ceremony. We couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us through the process. Francesca not only made the ceremony a warm and intimate experience; she also showcased who were are in a way that was authentic and unique to our love. Thanks so much for being a part of our love party!

Hi I'm Franesca. I love to celebrate love in all that I do. My approach to wedding ceremonies is modern, playful, heartfelt & professional. I guenuinely care about every couple that I have the honour & privledge of officiating for. On my website or google you will find hundreds of love notes from previous couples. My instagram page is a great snapshot of who I am!

When I am not officiating weddings, you can find me at one of my clinics offering Holistic Healing Sessions, with a strong focus of life transformation through Chakra Alignment. I also offer reteats, healing circles & do a lot of fundraising & community work.

My most favourite passtimes are spending time with our pups, our friends pups & connecting with our neighbours & their pups. I am a big supporter of Buttonnoses which is a Charity supporting older little dogs.

I also love walking, yoga & cooking. I have travelled annually for 35 years so have developed a love of multi-cutltural cuisine. I am allergic to garlic, but that has never stopped me from enjoying amazing food from around the world.

Oh, one more really interesting thing about me is that I am a mom of Triplet Boys.

I look forward to getting to know a bit more about you!
