the most magical day of our lives!
Wow, just wow. From the first moment that we met with Laura, we could tell that our wedding day was going to be so full of beauty, wonder and celebration. Laura's warm and loving presence, her incredible attention to detail, her in depth knowledge of ceremonial lore and her strength and grace in holding space made for such a wonderful journey with her. Laura was kind, attentive, professional, organized, wise, compassionate (especially when wedding preparations became stressful), and so helpful in putting together our ceremony.
On the wedding day itself, Laura called in the essences of our respective ancestors, tied in our loved ones present and passed with such caring and sensitivity, and really held the most sacred space for us to enter into the bonds of marriage.
We are endlessly grateful to Laura and her stunning work in weaving together the most perfect ceremony we could have asked for, and we recommend her completely.
Thank you Laura for being with us and helping to create the memories that we will cherish for a lifetimeSent on 26/09/2021

Friendly, funny & caring
Laura was amazing to work with on our ceremony details.
She definitely puts the effort in to customize your ceremony and is definitely willing to adjust on the fly. I definitely appreciated the humour she brought to our ceremony as we had asked for that after completing our questionnaire. After meeting her she got a great feeling for us as a couple and helped us to reflect our true selves in our ceremony script & vows. She has great suggestions and is willing to work with you on making the ceremony perfect for you as a couple! Laura kept in contact with us throughout the process and was well prepared and executed our ceremony perfectly! We highly recommend Laura for your wedding ceremony.Sent on 14/08/2019

She is awesome!
Laura provided my spouse and I an elopement ceremony in Stanley Park! Laura did a wonderful job making the ceremony feel personal. She was very responsive and personable. We loved that she added a special touch to the ceremony by adding her wish for us. Would highly recommend!!! Thanks Laura.Sent on 03/05/2019

Highly personalized and caring
We had a microwedding, and therefore we were really hoping the ceremony can be personalized and special to us. Laura was very accommodating, from the first day to giving us a lot of information (and we didn’t even have our questions fully thought out!) to continuing to answer the various questions we had throughout. Laura also made the rehearsal SO FUN and gave us great tips that we then implemented. Most importantly, the ceremony was so special with her personal touches. She also did this couple questionnaire that was really fun to complete, and actually ended up helping us in writing our own vows! After the wedding, we ended up reviewing each other’s answer to the questionnaire and had a great giggle! Thank you SO MUCH Laura, we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!
Bonus - Laura loved our furbaby!Sent on 24/08/2021
Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:Yvonne & Martin, you were both SUCH a joy to work with! And I mean "work" in the most FUN way possible LOL! It was a beautiful day, filled with beautiful people. And the icing on the cake was getting to meet your sweet little fur-baby Appa. I am in LOVE with him!
