Amazing! Fantastic! Incredible!
Sharon officiated our wedding and she did an incredible job! She incorporated our love story, our passed on grandparents, acknowledged our parents, a rose ceremony, and personal vows into our ceremony. She worked very hard on our ceremony and personalized our ceremony to fit our needs. She made sure that we were happy with everything going forward with our ceremony, and she was in communication with us consistently about our ceremony. She assisted us with our rehearsal as well and she gave great direction to our families and wedding party. Overall, amazing services! She is a very hard worker and makes sure your special day is only the best! I highly recommend Sharon to create a wonderful ceremony for you.Sent on 25/08/2021

Simple, easy and perfect
Sharon made the process so easy! We had one session online to discuss who we are and what we wanted. Sharon followed up with a link to view her ceremony script so we could edit as needed to make it perfect for us. She arrived on the day and took charge! She had everyone in their places on time, and the ceremony was heartfelt, funny and everything we wanted. Thank you, Sharon!Sent on 08/09/2021

Absolutely blessed to have had Sharon as our wedding commissioner
We had faced a lot of challenges for us to get married and we wanted to make our special day perfect! We approached Sharon with the hope that she will help us to make customizations for our wedding as we wanted some elements which were unique circumstances.Sent on 18/03/2021
Sharon not only made us comfortable but made sure that our day was perfect! She was not only our wedding commissioner but also a mother and a mentor for us during and after the wedding. She is absolutely amazing and definitely knows how to make your day not just special but also very memorable and happy.
She will guide you and be with you every step of the way and is there in every capacity - Mother, Friend, Mentor, Commissioner and I couldn't ask for anything more. I feel truly blessed to have met her and privileged to have her as our wedding commissioner.
YOU ARE AMAZING!

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
