    Our perfect day 馃挄

    Linda Nelson was the most amazing Celebrant we could ever dream of having. Our wedding ceremony was so touching, so beautiful and so incredibly perfect because of Linda. She guided us through the whole process and in the end crafted such a beautiful ceremony that was so personal and touching. Our guests loved the ceremony also! They told me it was perfect, beautiful, funny and totally reflective of my husband and I as a couple. We just love Linda and would highly recommend her to any couple!

    Helped Create Magic

    Linda was instrumental in providing our perfect day from beginning to end. She's flexible, caring, and showed a genuine interest in our choices and needs for getting everything set up exactly the way we wanted. She also was able to incorporate every personal touch we asked for!

    We had been looking for someone who could blend elements of a traditional ceremony with the non-conventional/pagan elements we were wanting to add and Linda was wonderfully accommodating. The ceremony she wrote for us brought tears of joy to our eyes and our family was commenting for days how beautiful it was.

    We would highly recommend Island Ceremonies to anyone.

    Amazing! Very happy with ceremony!

    e were overjoyed to have Linda be our officiant for our July 2018 wedding at Hatley Castle. From the very beginning she was fantastic! She put together a beautiful ceremony that wove our love story together. She worked with the venue to schedule a proper rehearsal so that we would all have great timing, and she was speedy in all forms of communication. Linda is genuine and so kind with a heart of gold. Thank you for being a part of our day!

    An awesome choice!

    We decided early on that we wanted our ceremony to be super special and personal, and we're so happy we went with Linda! She provided a beautiful ceremony that we were able to make unlimited changes to (we didn't have to do too many, she had a great first draft) and so many of our guests said it was such a genuine and heartfelt ceremony. It really made an amazing start to our day.

    Thanks so much for your lovely words. I enjoyed working with you and loved performing your ceremony at the edge of the waterfront on Dallas Road. You are a wonderful couple and I am always inspired by love stories like yours.

    The perfect day

    We were so lucky to have Linda marry us. She made the entire process so simple and stress free. I couldn't imagine having anyone else preform the ceremony. Linda brought some really unique ideas for the ceremony and really helped us create a really lovely occasion.
    Linda is so easy to chat with, warm and genuine and helped make our day perfect.

    Linda was absolutely wonderful to work with. We wanted a "less traditional" ceremony including a handfasting and a penguin pebble exchange, both of which she was more than willing to accommodate. She delivered a very touching and personal ceremony and it was everything we wanted. Thank you Linda, for being a part of our day!

    Island Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Karly. I loved working with you and Mike and enjoyed incorporating your penguin theme into your ceremony. I learn so much from every ceremony I write and really enjoy the diverse needs of my clients. I wish you a long and happy life together.

    Linda was a perfect fit. Her compassion, genuine appreciation for our story and ability to carve out a unique ceremony to fit our special day and make it unique made for a very touching and memorable day. Not only did Linda do her due diligence to get to know our story, but she was able to calm us both, improve upon our plans and most importantly... guide us without burdening us with worry. Linda is the finesse everyone should add to their ceremony.

    Linda was amazing. My partner, Shawn and I eloped, and Linda made it all possible by providing us with two beautiful and amazing witnesses. The ceremony was simple and wonderful; it was everything that we had asked for. We are extremely grateful for Linda's phenomenal words and the ceremony that she arranged for us.

    Farah and Shawn, It was so wonderful for me to create /perform and for my 2 friends to witness your very special "Micro Ceremony". That tiny park transformed into a lovely oasis and we were all transported into your love bubble. Thank you for choosing me. :-)

    We chose to use a life celebrant instead of one of the government officiants and we are so pleased that we did. The extra cost was worth every penny as our ceremony was completely customized to how we wanted it and it was beautifully written and executed. Linda performed a hand fasting for us, and also helped us plan a pebble toss at the end of the ceremony. Many of our guests told us it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had been to. It was spiritual, simple, and heartfelt, and exactly how we wanted it. Linda is very personable and a delight to work with :) It was like having a friend marry us, instead of a stranger!

    Brandi and Alex, It was such a joy performing your ceremony perched on the rocks overlooking the ocean at Point-No-Point. You and your friends/family were so wonderful and your handfasting and pebble toss were fun to perform. I wish you a lifetime of wedded bliss and thank you for choosing me to be a part of your special day.

    We would absolutely recommend Island Ceremonies! We really wanted a personal ceremony, which spoke about us as a couple and our values as a future family. My fiancee at the time was out of the country due to urgent travel and Linda was MORE than accommodating, meeting with myself and my mom (standing in for my fiancee) and then meeting with us countless times over Skype to refine our the vision. Our wedding honoured our origins and highlighted who we are today. The ceremony was warm and heartfelt, and will forever be cherished in our hearts.
