Amazing experience, beautiful ceremony!
Sharon was amazing and we were very impressed with her knowledge, professionalism, organization and flexibility. She really listened to what we wanted for our ceremony and helped to make it very personalized and meaningful. Sharon has so much experience to share if you need some advice and inspiration for ideas. Having a wedding during a pandemic with restrictions can be stressful, but Sharon was great with everything and we had a beautiful ceremony! Her price is also very reasonable considering her years of experience and expertise. Highly recommend!Sent on 18/02/2021

2020 Wedding dreams are made of
2020 has brought on many challenges for everyone - and couples are not alone. Because I lost my Dad 19 years ago and my Mom suffered 2 debilitating strokes in the past two years - we wanted to make sure she was able to see us get married. When Covid hit we did not know what to do. Sharon made sure we knew she was here for us. Once we figured out the outdoor location, got Zoom set up for all our out of town family and friends, and got a speaker and mics so all in-person physically distant, and zoom guests would be able to hear us.
Sharon made sure that while we were working on making things safe, and work as well as it could ~ we did not need to worry about anything when walking down the aisle. She made sure guests had proper information, they heard our love story, and we hear over and over from both online and in-person guests that they felt like it was personal and intimate.
We credit this fully to Sharon. She makes sure she knows YOU as a couple and individually so that she can share your love with both your partner and guests.
She helped us make sure that although 2020 is crazy LOVE IS NOT CANCELLED! Our wedding is what dreams are made of!Sent on 27/10/2020

Making a difference in people’s lives has been my life’s work and personal joy.
I am a people person, proud mother of a son and enjoy my hobbies. When not marrying couples, you will either find me hiking, riding my horse down country roads or sewing colourful quilts for family and friends. Supporting my community, I have volunteered with 4H and the Calgary Hospice for numerous years.
As a trained actress, I am an ideas enthusiast! My wedding career was launched in 1995 with Sharon Barwick Designs as a Vancouver florist and award winning event decorator. I have produced weddings and events in Calgary since 2004 as Director of Special Events with the Simply Elegant Corporation. I am an International Examiner for the Certified International Event Professional (CSEP) designation and former National Education Chair for the International Live Events Association (ILEA). I am dedicated in mentoring young people and am a Mount Royal University instructor for the Wedding Planning and the Event Management programs.
