Farm wedding in Goderich

Rachel was a spectacular celebrant for our ceremony. We were very happy with the service provided for us and would highly recommend her. She was great at tailoring the ceremony to who we are as a couple. She also had many recommendations for readings and rituals we could use to make it special. Great personality and very organized.

Incredible and Personal

Rachel was incredibly professional, warm, personal and inviting. She created a ceremony so personal that my husband and I were tearing up just reading it ahead of time. She was always responsive to any messages we sent. We could not have chosen a better officiant for our wedding. Merci Rachel!

Absolutely amazing service from Rachel!

We had our wedding this July, 2023 in Collingwood Ontario and Rachel did not disappoint! She asked loads of questions in order to really get to know us, we had a few calls on zoom as well. We live abroad so Rachel was extremely accommodating to our needs and timings because of that! Additionally she very much took on board our thoughts of what we would want included in our ceremony and her delivery was perfect! We loved it and so did our guests!!

We had a great experience with Rachel!

We had the pleasure of using Rachel as our wedding officiant recently. We had a super experience with her. She was lovely to work with, wrote us a beautiful and unique ceremony, was extremely flexible with accommodating us and did a fabulous job at the wedding. People actually came up to me after the wedding to ask about her as they were so impressed. She makes the ceremony about the couple and what makes them special, it's not a cookie cutter ceremony like every other wedding you've been to. I would highly recommend Rachel to everyone, you won't be disappointed.

Rachel helped make our day so special!

I honestly can't recommend Rachel enough! From the moment we had our first consultation with her over the phone, we were totally drawn to her warmth and openness. As part of the preparation for writing our ceremony, she sent us a very detailed questionnaire that really helped us put a lot of thought into our relationship and why we wanted to get married. She truly helped make our wedding ceremony feel personal and unique. I would 1000% recommend Rachel to anyone looking for an officiant. Thank you so much, Rachel - we'll never forget you!!

Wedding at Ladybank Schoolhouse

Rachel was the celebrant for our wedding at the Ladybank Shoolhouse in July 2022. The ceremony she crafted for us was truly beautiful and personalized, and I don't think there was a dry eye among our guests! My mom mom was talking about how beautiful the ceremony was even days after our wedding. It was the perfect springboard for our new married life together. She was flexible in working around our requests; for example, we asked for no rehearsal, and the ceremony turned out wonderfully even without it. We also asked her to provide us with vows, which were lovely and unique. Coordination with her before and after the wedding was easy and efficient. She really is both and artist and a professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant. Thank you Rachel!

I want to tell you a bit about me. I grew up in Whitby, Ontario. My parents were from Liverpool, England I am the youngest of 4 children. In high shcool I did a personality test and the results indicated I would be best suited to the military or to be a Minister. I dismissed this information, clearly the test was wrong. I went to McGill University and studied English Literature. After that I went to live in Europe for 2 years. I returned to Canada and worked at different jobs, got married and had children. When my oldest child was born I decided the best fit for our family was for me to stay home. Over the next 13 years we had 3 more. I loved being a stay at home mum and I also home schooled the oldest children up to Grade 9.

My niece asked me to Officiate her wedding and that was the catalyst for me. I had found the work I loved. I completed 2 certificate courses at the Celebrant Foundation and Institute in Weddings and Funerals. I like everything about this work; meeting people, writing (finally my English Lit. degree was serving me!), creating meaningful ceremonies, researching rituals, readings, music and trends. I hope to create many different ceremonies, to date I have performed Weddings and Funerals. I was ordained in March of 2019 as a Metaphysical Minister, so I guess that personality test was partly right.

I have lived in beautiful Owen Sound since December 2008. The beauty that surrounds me continues to inspire me and keeps me centred. I love travelling, I have spent a lot of time in Spain, particularly Basque Country, and also love to visit Wales. I have a horse who is teaching me lessons I didn't even know I had to learn. We also adopted 2 cats, I always thought of myself as a "dog" person but I realize I'm an "animal" person. I speak other languages and can incorporate that into my ceremonies. I feel that because of the travelling I did, I am open to different perspectives and traditions, I know this helps me to be more creative in my practice. I love to laugh, I think humour can heal and it's a great way to connect with people. I have found a calling that I can do as long as I can read and drive so I intend to Officiate for many years to come!
