Updated November 9, 2020,
Greetings happy couples of Peel Region, and the rest of Ontario.
As per the most updated information from the Ontario Government, as of Friday November 13, 2020:
From now until Friday, I am able to perform outdoor wedding ceremonies, either at my home or yours.
After this Friday, all of my wedding ceremonies will be on hold until January 7, 2021.
I will be scheduling ceremonies for January 7, 2021 and later.
These rules are being assessed every 14 days, and are subject to change as the pandemic continues.
if the rules in Peel Region change and are relaxed prior to your wedding date, I will be happy to reschedule it to one sooner for no additional charge.
I am still willing to work with you within these current guidelines, and do my best to make your ceremony as personal and intimate for you and your fiancé.
While the larger, more traditional weddings are on hold as well for the time being, I will still offer the below two options for those who would like to have smaller ceremonies, either at their homes or in my backyard, and, I am scheduling larger customized venue weddings for 2021, please don’t leave your wedding officiant bookings for next year to the last minute. COVID has made 2021 a busy year for weddings already, and if we’re required to make changes to our original dates and times, as we had to this year, your deposit is applied to the new jointly agreed upon date.
All ceremonies must adhere to social distancing rules, and if indoors guests are required to wear face masks.
*** Need a Punjabi or Hindi translator for your service? Let me know, and based on the date and time, I may be able to assist with your request ***
*** I have a large experience with Muslim, Sikh, Punjabi, weddings, as well as multi-religious, arranged marriages, and LGBTQ2S+ ceremonies, and am inclusive of all faiths and nationalities ***
Currently I am able to book last minute services - However, 2021 is also filling up due to the unfortunate cancellations from 2020.
Wedding Licenses which were purchased from December 1, 2019, to July 23, 2020, will be valid for up to 24 months from the original expirary date.
This means if you have a license which has expired during the Ontario Government's Emergency Order, it is still usable at this time.
All ceremonies must follow the government's of Ontario guidelines for the specific region your ceremony is located.
I work closely with another minister in Brampton and we back up for one another when necessary, so you can be assured that your ceremony is covered.
A 50% non refundable deposit is required to confirm your date and time of ceremony in my schedule.
Message me for more details and to reserve your date.

Our Amazing Day!
In October 2018 my husband and I decided to renew our wedding vows after almost 30 years of being together. I connected with Barb and I was blown away at the amount of time she invested with us to ensure we got exactly what we wanted for our special day! Her creative suggestions were amazing! We had recently lost our dog and adopted a new puppy and Barb incorporated both Moose and Henry into the ceremony and it was so touching. Work was super busy for both my husband and I so we left everything up to Barb and she did not disappoint! We were married outside at a local conservation area and the vows she prepared for us were exactly what we were looking for. Our day was a tremendous success, the vows were perfect, and it was as if Barb knew us for many years. I highly recommend Barb!Sent on 08/05/2019
