Services offered

Jan will work with you via face-to-face meetings, email, Zoom and phone to create a personalized ceremony - one that speaks to who you both are. This includes rituals (like the Oathing Stone, Hand Fasting, wine or flower rituals, and more!), and readings (poems, song lyrics, or meaningful quotes) that can be used in the ceremony. Perhaps you have a special poem, song or quote that you would like to include, or you can choose from Jan's growing collections. She also has example ceremonies, so you can see the flow and structure, as well as key elements. Your ideas are welcome as well! Custom ceremony: $450

Other services

She also offers pre-written ceremonies geared toward couples planning a destination wedding. If you need to do the legal part here (at home or ?), she provides a lovely simple ceremony that meets all legal requirements - but as this is your "real" wedding, it will still be nice! Pre-written ceremony: $375

If you require an Expedited Marriage Certificate, Jan can provide insturctions and guidance.

And, of course, these services include sending the completed licence to the Registry Office by Registered Mail and following up as required to ensure that your marriage is registered and official.

Jan saved the day!

Jan was amazing to work with. Our original officiant had an accident 11 days before the wedding which is when we contacted Jan and she was incredible from start to finish. She took the time to work with us on our vision and created a beautiful custom ceremony in the very short time we had. Jan was so kind, friendly, professional and well spoken. She was a calming presence leading up to the wedding and on the day of. We can’t say enough good things about Jan and the level of service she provides and would whole heartedly recommend her.

The most amazing and personable ceremony!

Jan was a dream to work with. We had a number of personal touches we wanted to add to our ceremony, and Jan made sure that it happened! She made us feel like she had known us for years, and really ensured that our ceremony was perfect for us. Jan, thank you for everything, it was such a pleasure working with you, and we are so grateful that you were a part of our special day!

Amazing officiant who adapted to both ceremonies we had

Jan was a fantastic officiant for our wedding(s) - yes, that's right we did it twice in two days! We did an "elopement" type of ceremony for just the two of us and two days later repeated the ceremony for our 4 kids, blending our families together. Jan did a fantastic job of capturing the feel we were going for, and had many wonderful and wise things to say about marriage. Most importantly for us was how she incorporated our children into our second ceremony and helped put the focus on them. We wholeheartedly recommend Jan as an officiant and wouldn't hesistate to work with her again (10 year commitment ceremony perhaps!). Thank you so much Jan for providing an invaulable service to both of our special days.

Incredible Wedding Ceremony

Jan was an absolute delight to work with as our officiant. From the beginning, she was incredibly personable and made us feel at ease during the wedding planning process.

Jan's guidance was invaluable when it came to crafting our ceremony. She provided us with a wonderful variety of example ceremonies and rituals to choose from, allowing us to create a unique and heartfelt ceremony that truly reflected our love story.

What set Jan apart was her genuine interest in getting to know us as a couple. She took the time to learn about our relationship, and this personal touch was evident throughout the ceremony. It felt like she had known us for years.

Our guests couldn't stop raving about the ceremony, and we received numerous compliments on how beautifully it was conducted. Jan's warmth and expertise added a special touch to our wedding day that we will always cherish. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant to marry us. Thank you, Jan!

Excellent Officiant

Jan was an excellent officiant! She met with us several times before the wedding to kindly and patiently explain the process. She made sure the ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it. On the day of the wedding she arrived early and was a calming presence during the ceremony. She is well spoken and delivered the ceremony perfectly. Thank you Jan!
