Linda Grover is a registered, experienced professional who is passionately dedicated to creating personal life celebration ceremonies in Southwestern Ontario. Your relationship is unique and so should your ceremony be. There is a special magic at that moment when you stand facing each other to affirm your shared commitment. Your wedding ceremony will be carefully crafted to reflect your love, honour your dreams and respect your life milestones.
The heart of the service provided by Linda Grover Officiant is to help all couples express their true emotions and thoughts. Linda enjoys guiding couples through the journey in the lead-up to the big day. What’s more, she is delighted to help tailor the experience to suit certain tones, themes, and structures.

Linda encourages couples to be innovative and passionate when creating their ceremony. She does this so that it becomes a true and wonderful reflection of their individual personalities and collective partnership. Typically, the occasions she presides over last fewer than 30 minutes. She is more than happy to incorporate bilingual, traditional and/or symbolic elements in your ceremony to be fully inclusive, diverse and serve all faiths. She will create a ceremony that is personalized and spiritually reflective of the couple's intentions and beliefs using the words and rituals that represent you.
Honouring life celebrations (elopements, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies), milestones (baby naming, baby welcoming, home blessings) and memorial services are also an important component of her role as clergy with C.I.M.M. in supporting our connections to the greater community at large and future transitions.

Beautiful, exactly what we were looking for
Linda was perfect for our ceremony. We held it at the back of my parents farm, barefoot and fancy free! She helped us figure out what we wanted (we did a knot tying at the ceremony, and it's one of my favourite memories!), and helped create the wording to fit us and our values. She was relaxing to work with too, and informative.Sent on 13/09/2021

Great communication & very accommodating during covid
Linda is so wonderful! We had to reschedule our 2020 wedding to May 2021 and she easily accommodated our rescheduled date. Unfortunately with covid, we made the tough decision to fully cancel our wedding. Linda provided her portion of our deposit back and went out of her way to try and recover additional funds for us (we found her through a 3rd party website). When we are eventually able to get married, we will definitely be hiring her to officiate our ceremony!Sent on 18/02/2021

Linda was a great wedding officiant. My husband and I wanted a short nonreligious ceremony and she did exactly what we asked. She also gave me examples and templates when I was struggling to come up with the ceremony layout and readings. She was there to answer all my questions and concerns about the license and application as well. Anything I needed, Linda was there to help. I would definitely recommend her!Sent on 20/05/2019

My husband and I were very pleased to have Linda be a part of our very special day.
When we first met with Linda online, we felt an instant connection and knew we wanted her to play the very important role of the officiant for our wedding ceremony. We gravitated towards Linda’s energy and light heartedness. Linda was thoughtful, attentive and understood the type of ceremony we were looking to bring to life, and how important this day was for us and what it signified. Linda guided us through the planning process and made the planning experience very easy for us. Linda also guided us through a rehearsal the day prior and that was helpful for us, our wedding party and guests of honour. On the day of, she was well organized and made my husband and I feel at ease. Linda was a great addition to our ceremony and we would recommend her for yours! Thanks Linda!!Sent on 05/09/2021
Linda Grover Officiant's reply:Meeting you both was a joy....the loving connection you share is truly a treasure. Thank you for the honour and pleasure of getting to know you two.

I love "love", and couples in love.
I married my high school sweetheart 43 years ago, and yes I know very well that life is really a roller coaster journey.
it is true that for each of us, having that special someone who is there with you, for you and behind you...even when the giving is 50/50, 60/40, 80/20, 20/80 or 10/90, over your life together, it will even out if you both truly want each other to be happy. It isn't always easy, but it is easier together.
3 wonderful adult children, 2 grandchildren, a couple of dogs, family, friends, a cup of tea to start the morning, a cup of coffee later in the day, a glass of red in the evening and chocolate make my life pretty complete.
Let's chat and create the ceremony that will take you forward on your own journey, together.
