Unique, heart-warming and the perfect addition to our wedding!
When we were on the hunt for a wedding officiant, a few people had told us to potentially look into Celebrants - those who perform professional wedding ceremonies with a unique touch (e.g. story-telling). As we began to research, we stumbled upon Abegael, and we are so glad we did!Sent on 16/09/2019
We met Abegael at a coffee shop and got to know her, tell her our story, and shared our vision. Right away we knew she was the perfect person to marry us! She allowed us to share our stories individually and soon after crafted our amazing love story and ceremony script. Everyone at the wedding had never been to a ceremony (including us) where someone welcomed our families (in different languages), acknowledged our different backgrounds and cultures, shared such a beautifully written love story on how we met, to our proposal story, to a few short poems, etc. She also worked with us to guide us in writing our vows.
We've received so many compliments from our guests on such a unique, touching, and heart-warming ceremony. She helped us set the tone for what was the most amazing day of our lives. Thank you so much for being part of our special day and being such an amazing soul! xoxo Kana & Shahid

Unique, Heart Shaped & Wonderful
On October 5th, 2018 "we said I do"... ~ Our officiant Abegael was wonderful in helping to make our wedding day both unique and personal. It was the kind of ceremony that allowed all of our friends and family to share in, by way of some very special moments -- far exceeding our expectations. Abegael ensured that our values were at the forefront from culture and belief to the threads of our family roots. Abegael helped us create a most memorable page within next chapter of our hearts and lives filled with laughter, tears and a whole lot of love. We could not have been blessed with a better person to ceremoniously assist with the tying of our Celtic knot of eternity. Forever grateful for a day... that our friends and family will surely continue to talk about for years to come. Thank you Abegael for everything.Sent on 16/01/2019
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Thank you, dear Janice and Darryl, for such a rich ceremonial experience! We co-created an extraordinary, magical & mystical wedding, didn't we? So fitting for your amazing love story. And I was deeply moved to be included in both the rehearsal dinner, and the fabulous wedding reception. I loved being with your families, and the Celtic connection was heartwarming. Your sister speaking the Gaelic, your grandmother's special spirit gift in the ringwarming sachet.... (It warmed me Nova Scotian heart entirely so!)

Abegael was absolutely outstanding! We really wanted a personal and intimate wedding, a ceremony that reflected who we are and our values. Abegael took the time to listen to our story and constructed a wedding ceremony that was heartfelt with threads of humour woven throughout. We felt at ease during the whole process of working together but especially during the ceremony itself. She created order when things had the potential to go sideways right at the start of our day, a true professional who handle a little chaos with such grace. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests, stating that it was the most personal and fun wedding they have attended, and we have Abegael to thank. We are so blessed to have had Abegael guide us through such an important moment in our life, to help us articulate an acient ceremony with some contemporary twists. She allowed us to make it our own and was the most calming presence to have at our side.

Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Dear Brigitte and Dave... thank you for inviting me to celebrate the bestest Scottish wedding ever. Never have I seen so much tartan rocked so fetchingly! Never have I waited alone at the front, as first the bride entered, and then the groom rocked in, in kilt and pipers' knee-highs, and high-fived everyone in the room on the way. And never have I used a handfasting cord of double tartan, representing both families, to seal anam cara bonds. Slainte va to your artistry, your shared wildheart and your new life!

Life Threads Ceremonies is extremely highly recommended by us. We have had many people rave about our ceremony and ask us to refer them to Abegael after they experienced our wedding. Life Threads Ceremonies offers a premium service that is worth every dollar. More than that, Abegael is such a wonderful human being and we feel truly blessed for the opportunity to have worked with her in preparing for our wedding.
Our wedding ceremony was perfect. How lucky we were that Abegael chose to work with us to bring our dream ceremony to life!
After our engagement, we knew that the person who would marry us in the most appropriate way would be tough to find. We had numerous cultural, religious, and personal considerations that would make the wedding ceremony quite a toughie.
We researched and interviewed many different wedding commissioners (celebrants, priests, officiants, ministers, justice of the peace, etc.). Among all of the conversations we'd had, Abegael stood out in many ways, but most importantly, as being the most thoughtful and considerate.
We could tell right from the beginning that Abegael had the know-how to weave the intricacies of our wedding. We also found out from our initial conversations that she is selective about who she works with, so we crossed our fingers and hoped there was a match (we had other conversations lined up, but we already felt confident that she would be the one for us). Thankfully, the answer came back a Yes on both sides!
After getting all the agreements in order, it was time to work! Abegael dedicated so much of her time meeting with us to learn about our love story, shared her deep knowledge about celebrations, and we collaborated on putting together a custom ceremony that would bring our story to life. It was a very involved process that took place over several months, but we were so thrilled for it to come together and then for Abegael to add her magical touches to really tie it all together.
Wedding time. Nerves kick in (not really, but really). Ceremony happens. Wow. Perfect. Magical. Did that just happen? So much fun! So much love!
After our wedding, we received so many positive comments from the strictest of people who attended our wedding, and we were also asked by more than a few people to refer us to Abegael because they want their children to be married by her.
I know this is Wedding Wire so the review should probably be limited to this topic, but Life Threads Ceremonies also offers other services for honouring people and places. I have not personally used these services, but if our wedding was any indication, I am confident that Abegael would do just as amazing work in other realms.
One would truly be lucky if Abegael chose to work with you.
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Alexis and Joshua, beloveds, thank you for inviting me along! As I remarked in telling your Love Story in your wedding, I chose you as soon as we met, and hoped you would choose me too. I was smitten with your passionate commitment to enquery in your relationship. The Six Month Conversation, wow. Working with both of you for almost a year to create your ceremony was a celebrant's dream come true .... coming to completion for all of us on that gorgeous , light filled summer's day in the most perfect of BC venues: the Pemberton Valley. May the light and joy of that day forever be yours.

Perfect, heart-centred ceremony
Abegael is a master of creating and holding space. She is able to meet any spiritual or cultural ceremonial request you may have, and she does so with joy and ease. This truly is the work she was born to do, so it would be impossible to have a negative experience with her as your officiant. Thank you, Abegael, for a sacred yet buoyant day... just a few of us in our forested back yard during this great wake-up of CoVid time. It was magic and you blessed it with your presence.Sent on 12/05/2021
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Dear newlyweds D and M...... I thank you! What an honour to stand under the great trees with both of you and your daughters, as you gifted one another with loving and ensouled language and gifts of silver and gold....and your parents greeting you after taking their witness vows.. "Wiil you offer the benefit of your experience and opinion... when invited?... Yes!" And the many rituals you chose, and we reshaped, to suit this unique ceremony of love..... from Honouring the Elements, Ringwarming, Handfasting, Breaking the Glass, Community Vows...and more. It was rich, and full, and resonant....the kind of love ceremony we have all longed for this year.... richer in soul for being in ceremony with you and your Anam Cara.
