    On the day of the ceremony, Lora was early, paper worked filled out flawlessly!

    Such a beautiful service, we were so glad she was part of our day !

    Thank you Lora

    Beautiful Ceremony on Aug 29, 2021

    Lora was an absolute pleasure to work with, we could not be happier to have her officiate our wedding. The ceremony was outdoor and beautiful - Lora is so down to earth and really made the whole process so easy from start to finish. I would recommend Lora to all!!

    Say I Do With Love's reply:

    Thanks so much! I loved working with both of you on your ceremony and wish you the best! I am glad the weather held out, and hope you had a great reception! Lora

    Excellent!

    Lora was such a pleasure to work with! She was able to work with me to use different vows that I liked, and worded them in a way that was easier for us. She also went out of her way to help when a small hiccup occurred on the day of the wedding, which was a great relief to the groom.

    Say I Do With Love's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review! The fall weather was perfect for your day. I very much appreciate the wedding arbour and it will make a wonderful addition to our backyard weddings. I’m so happy you had a great wedding. All the best for your future together.

    A wonderful experience start to finish

    We would wholeheartedly recommend Lora to any couple looking for an officiant. She was quick to reply from the time of our initial inquiry, right up to the day of our ceremony. Lora was extremely accommodating, allowing us to hold our ceremony in her stunning backyard. We opted to do repeat after me vows, and Lora had a large selection of options for us to consider. Overall working with Lora was excellent, and our small group of family that attended all agreed that her ceremony was lovely. Thank you Lora for making our special day so easy!

    Above and Beyond

    Lora was absolutely amazing. From the moment we met her on Zoom, I immediately felt as ease. She wanted to make sure we had the dream ceremony that we wanted, and made it so custom to our relationship! She even sent us out questions to get to know us as well to our families to integrate into the ceremony. Leading up to the wedding, she was always reachable and had such a quick reply time. Planning during Covid is so easy task but she made us feel calm, supported and relaxed the entire time. The day of the wedding she performed such a beautiful ceremony, we had a virtual ceremony with family watching at home and they all asked who our reverend was as she created such a gorgeous ceremony for us! I was a bag of nerves and she made me feel so calm and confident, I would have been lost without her. We are so incredibly blessed to have been able to plan and share our day with Lora, and we believe that everyone should have Lora with them to share in and officiate their day! Thank you SO MUCH Lora!!!

    Couldn't ask for a better officiant!

    We had a wonderful experience working with Lora. She was very friendly, responsive, and professional, and helped us expedite the process to get our wedding certificate. Recommend her to our best friend and they loved her too!

    Perfect Wedding

    Our wedding was intimate, elegant and honestly perfect. Lora was so kind, and has a beautiful property. She has a separate dressing room and washroom for the bride/guests, where we were able to get ready and wait for everyone to arrive/get settled. We ended doing all of our photos on site, as her yard was just beautiful and perfect. Rustic mixed with nature makes the perfect backdrop. We had no expectations as all we wanted to do was elope with our parents present, and it was by far better than we could have imagined. Thank you Lora!

    Say I Do With Love's reply:

    Thanks! Loved having you both here ❤️ A beautiful day for a wedding and gorgeous couple!! Thanks again fir the photos.

Meet the Team

Lora Nedkov

Hello

I would love to be part of your day! I enjoy working with couples to make sure they are part of the process in creating a memorable day.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years, who will be joining me as an officiant in 2021. We live in Fonthill close to the downtown, but fortunate to enjoy a beautiful property backing onto trails. My Aussiedoodle, Frankie and cat, Clark enjoy living in our slowly but surely 1894 ongoing renovated home, where we plan on offering a bed and breakfast for overnight guests. Our location is perfect for an intimate outdoor wedding of ten or less, and close enough to Niagara Falls for a honeymoon or romantic visit.

We are both avid hikers and spend 2 or three weeks a year traveling to various locations with the mountains, being our favourite. We have been many times to the Camino Trail and enjoy nature.

My style is very easy going, as I think it's important to be able to accomodate various types of weddings and requests. I would be happy to skype, ichat or have a call, should you want to discuss further as it's important to get to each other before booking an officiant.

As a Counsellor for the past 20 years, I also offer pre and post relationship counselling sessions. My background can be found at loranedkov.com. I am an ACIM student and teacher, and also an intuitive, so you and or your partner receive information that can assist you immediately with any concerns.
