Richelle · Married on 15 of September of 2019
While we weren't able to have Katherine officiate our ceremony due to scheduling conflicts, we had a great experience with her with the time that we did. I found her through Wedding Wire from the great reviews. We live in Vancouver and had our wedding Montreal and spoke with her via FaceTime. She was so warm, welcoming and took the time to get to know us as a couple and our story. She even had a questionnaire for both of us to fill out individually to refer to during the ceremony which we thought was a great personal touch! When she found out she was unable to be at our ceremony due to a family event on the same day, she told us as soon as she could and connected us with another great officiant that we hired for our ceremony and were extremely happy with as well! Thank you Katherine for your time and helping us plan everything that it went smoothly!Sent on 01/12/2019

Exceptional! Thank you doesn't even begin to express our gratitude.
We could not picture our wedding day without Katherine. She was WONDERFUL. Katherine is kind, warm, thoughtful, attentive and made us feel at ease from the very first moment we met.Sent on 18/12/2018
It felt like we'd known her for years, and ALL, and I mean ALL of our guests commented about what a incredible, heartfelt and fantastic job she did and how she made them all feel comfortable, welcome and included.
On top of her warm demeanor, Katherine has a creative soul, and regularly encouraged us to make our ceremony unique and our own. The end result was magical.
She will forever be in our hearts.
We can't recommend her enough!

Thank you Katherine!
Words cannot describe the crucial role that Katherine played in making our wedding day so perfect. We found Katherine via this site and after just one meeting we knew that we wanted her to be our officiant as we felt an instant connection. Katherine has a calm and gentle demeanor, and truly cared to get to know us. She was extremely easy to deal with throughout the process, and took our ideas and suggestions and made our dream ceremony. The recommendations go beyond us as well, as numerous family and friends are still commenting over a month later about how amazing Katherine was at capturing our love and helping to make our ceremony unique. Many people were surprised that we had just met, as Katherine made us and everyone around us feel like she knew us for many years.
Katherine, you are very special to us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You brought so much joy to our day and we will forever be grateful to you. Thank you so much!!!!

The most genuine and warm celebrant
Dear Katherine,Sent on 29/06/2018
We are so grateful for all of the love, warmth and beauty you brought to our ceremony with both your heartfelt words and kind soul. We were so incredibly touched by the care you took and the warmth with which you delivered our ceremony. It exceeded our expectations even though we knew you would do a beautiful job. I’m sure our smiles and tears on the day can communicate better than any words I could choose just how happy and touched we were by the whole experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Our guests also commented on what an amazing, open and warm celebrant we had chosen. Some even asked for your coordinates so that they could thank you properly. We feel incredibly blessed to have had you marry us. When we met you it felt right instantly and we feel like our ceremony felt exactly like us. People said the love coming from everyone was palpable and you helped to create that. Many said it was the best wedding they had ever been too and many also said that your wonderful words about love made them think about and reconnect with their own love and commitments. Thank you.
Katherine Barr's reply:Tracy and Thierry thank you so much for this heartfelt amazing feedback. It truly warms my heart and makes me feel so grateful for your trust and openness to let me have this special role on this memorable day. I wish you both so much joy and happiness ! Big hug to you both and to your friends and family ! XXX

Katherine was able to bring so much Joy and symbolism to our ceremony. She quoted us perfectly, with lots of humour and explained cultural symbolic items in a very comprehensive and accurate way. She gathered information from both of us in our meetings and used this infused with her sense of humour in a very natural way that was pertinent to our personalities. She married us twice ( the signing and the ceremony) and both times she was excellent. I highly recommend her as she is very talented and passionate about this. We could not have had anyone better for our spiritual wedding. Our guests were also very impressed with her.
