    Great experience

    Laura, thank you for making our ceremony fabulous in every way. You made the whole process easy and we are so thankful that we chose you to be our officiant.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    It was SO FUN Matt & Rebecca! I remember well how it felt to be in that space with all those people who gathered to witness your ceremony; I could literally FEEL how much they all loved you both. xo Wishing you a zillion years of that same feeling...

    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 lifetime

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Dearest Mya, firstly I apologize for not acknowledging your post sooner. And my goodness, what a love letter you have written to me! I am deeply moved by your generosity, and grateful to you for taking the time out of your very busy schedule to share your experience. Wishing you and JP a lifetime of the enormous love you have for one another and the very best health. Until we meet again, dear sister...

    Laura was awesome!

    I'd recommend Laura anytime! She made our experience so beautiful, personalized, memorable and truly truly sweet. She really listened to what we wanted and tapped in to who we are to give us a really special set of vows we'll remember forever. Laura is really caring and has a super personable touch to everything she does. Also professional, understanding, and flexible! We were blown away, she's one of the best! :)

    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.

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Oh Renee you and Matthew were SO great to work with also! And super FUN! Thank you so much for your review; it was a pleasure telling your love story - and what a love story it was! Big love to you both!

    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.

    Incredible Celebrant!

    Laura performed our vow renewal ceremony recently. We really wanted to ensure our renewal was as meaningful as our April 2020 vows, where none of our guests were able to be physically present due to pandemic restrictions. Laura had so many amazing ideas to really build out an absolutely beautiful ceremony. She had a keen eye on the vows we wrote to each other, and wove in family vows at our request so our son was fully included in the process. Laura also did a very thorough rehearsal and even though we had a last minute ceremony location change due to weather, the plan from the rehearsal flowed beautifully. Laura is such a wonderful human. She commands a room and holds space for the magic that a ceremony is. She knows when to use humour, and when to bring a more serious tone to things. She is so flexible at building a ceremony custom to the couple or family and we don't hesitate for one moment in recommending her!

    Moving, from the heart and soul

    Laura was phenomenal for our ceremony. I was the bride so I missed some things that she said and did at the beginning but when we were up there , she made sure that we were ok, very calming soothing. She even offered water bottles as it was 30 degrees outside. Biggest heart , and just an amazing woman. You captured my soulmate and I through your words, and all night I could hear everyone saying what a gorgeous ceremony, and so well done. Thank you Laura from Roisin and Ian

    Laura Bee Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you SO much Roisin - knowing that you and your guests really enjoyed the ceremony means the world to me! It was hot, eh?! LOL And yet you seemed so "cool!" Ian was so sweet, I heard him whispering little words of calming support to you also... he was so focused on you. I am so glad that after 13 years (yes?) that you are now married! It has been my joy to know you this last few years :)

    Outstanding!

    We used Laura as our officiant for our wedding in May 2022. She was very easy to communicate with and always got back to us promptly. She was extremely professional and during our rehearsal, really ironed out all the kinks so everyone felt super comfortable on the day of the wedding. Our favourite part was how she had us fill in questionnaires about ourselves/our partner and incorporated it into the ceremony, Laura was wonderful and we would recommend her over and over!
