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!)

Jessie and Jakes wedding
Abegael was great from the beginning to the end. Her service was beautifully put together. She is persistent and consitant.Sent on 13/02/2019
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Thanks Jessie. It was a fabulous wedding. You and Jake created the best of 1920's themed event at the historic Langley Milner Hall, with vintage limo, natty three-piece suits, fedoras and flapper dresses. Your guests loved it. A joy to be part of your big day! All the best in your new life in Qualicum!

Abagael helped us plan a very romantic ceremony. I especially like the blessing of our rings and the bells.Sent on 05/02/2019
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Thank you Donna. I loved the romance of your ceremony too! The Ringwarming was especially lovely as the little silvery sachet holding your rings, and a few crystals, was passed through your guests. Everyone was visibly moved. And nothing quite beats the festive joy of bells and chimes and singing bowls sounding through the air - and all the children loving that. And what a treat it was for me to create a ceremony with you and Dennis, after marrying your cousin a few years back, and then to present the vintage themed wedding of your nephew and new niece the next month. Families that celebrate together - yay! What an honour to be your chosen wedding celebrant!

Beautiful Unique Special Inspirational Marriage Blessing - Thank you Abagael 💗
We knew we had a connection as soon as we met Abagael, she was so attentive, kind and encouraging. We appreciated the options and flexibility to incorporate what was important to us. We also found the guidance and assistance helpful. We had so many of our family and friends come up to us afterwards exclaiming how beautiful, unique and special the ceremony was. They loved being so engaged in the process, some were inspired by it to deepen their own bonds. Such a blessing! We recommend Abagael unequivocally. Coreen and MichaelSent on 08/08/2018
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Thank you for your kind words, Coreen and Michael. It was GREAT to work together creating that amazing personalized ceremony. I am smitten with your love story, your connection with nature, your community... and to top it off - I had the best time with your family afterwards at the reception dinner. Thanks for inviting me to celebrate this gorgeous day with you. And it looks like we'll be together for a few more family celebratory ceremonies...how great is that?

Truly Special Day
From the moment we met with Abegael, we knew we wanted her to be our Celebrant. She had a warmth and intuition that won us over immediately. We are not traditional people, and as such, we were not interested in a run-of-the-mill ceremony.
After our initial consult, she helped us plan out every detail. She wowed us with her ideas, and creativity Even the things we wouldn't have thought of, she was on top of. She spent time getting to know us, understanding what was important to us and what we value.
When the big day arrived, there was an unforeseen circumstance that Abegael handled with professionalism, class and skill, and our guests were none-the-wiser. Additionally. Abigail demonstrated her experience though her ability to collaborate, her thoughtfulness and dedication.
Our guests felt the love, uniqueness and community of our ceremony. They commented on how beautiful it was, and that it was a wonderful reflection of us. Abegael, we can’t thank you enough for our ceremony. It was everything we wanted and more, and we would most definitely recommend Abegael to anyone planning their special day.Sent on 11/07/2018
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Dear Marc, dear Brian....what an extraordinary & magical wedding we three created! Perfect for such a loving & lovable, crazy expressive, attuned coupla guys as you two. I will always treasure 'our wedding', especially... writing 8 drafts (!) of the ceremonial script together, the Ringwarming sachet heavy with your chosen 13 precious stones, riotous Star Wars themed vows......and of course, standing with both of you in that moment of stillness when everything pauses, and the genius of your love changs the world forever. Honoured to be there with you. Truly.

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.

Abegael conducted a beautiful wedding ceremony which seamlessly combined the mystery of old Celtic ritual with the traditional words of the legal service and with the personality and history of the happy couple. It was an incredibly warm service, with smiles and happy tears, and through it all, Abegael steered the event with effortless grace. We couldn't have been happier! Thank you Abegael!Sent on 02/06/2015
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Jenni, thank you for your kind words. The ceremony could not have been more joyfulf! In a field on the farm, with folks from all over, musicians tuning up, the circle dances, and children running everywhere with flowers. Thank you for all you did to create an event with such colour and soul and laughter. Married life should be so crazy happy every day.

Abigail delivered a touching personal experience for everyone. Our guests were all impressed by the ceremony Abigail, my bride and I created. It was exactly what we wanted and all of our guests seem to agree that it was a touching celebration. We would definitely recommend Abigail to anyone who wants a truly personal touch to your special day.Sent on 10/10/2016
Life Threads Ceremonies's reply:Hamish, I loved creating your wedding with you and your beloved Cindy. We had a great time of it, so cosy in the Whistler pub , despite the torrential rain, and then, snow. Unexpected, but we warmed the place up with laughter and tears. Loved your vows, Cindy's crazy laughter, your kilt, and the whole community. Everyone is a little richer in soul for being at weddings like this, including the Celebrant, me!
