Engaged, personable and fun officiant

Shelley was wonderful from start to finish. Her professionalism, fun spirit and energy was exactly what we wanted in an officiant. She was very communicative, flexible and engaged throughout the planning process from our love story questionnaire, vows, marriage license, to the ceremony processional and afterwards. She made the ceremony run so smoothly and made us feel comfortable and confident. She even went above and beyond for us by helping our coordinator with her responsibilities.

Shelley is truly a pleasure to work with and we will always remember how special our ceremony was because of her part in it. Thank you Shelley!

The best decision I ever made!

I can't recommend Shelley enough! She thought of everything before I knew I needed it. I felt heard, seen and valued. As a bride your wedding is such a vulnerable place with lots of emotions running at any given moment. Shelley wrapped a strong prevailing energy around not only me and the groom, but the whole event, leaving us to feel safe and confident and enjoy our evening. Her ability to speak clearly also helped us write the vows we wished to express in an easy flowing manner. From Kleenex, to bobby pins, to veil holding and straightening hems! She was a whirlwind and a mastermind. Think Mary Poppins as a wedding officiant . Calm, organized, efficient and loving! Thank you Shelley for helping us make our dream come true!

Highly recommend

Shelley is an AMAZING officiant and I highly recommend her from start to finish. If you are looking for someone who is genuine, calm, thoughtful with the details, helps you be present in the moment, and truly makes your ceremony feel individualized and specially designed for you, then this is your person. She is part of a group of officiants and reached out to us after one of the individuals we had contacted was not available. We are incredibly happy she found us. She makes sure the service is what you are looking for and offers lots of guidance to help tailor it to what you want, even when you start off not knowing what you want. She went above and beyond to basically assist with coordinating our guests for the ceremony for us on the day of (we did not have a wedding coordinator) and allowed it to start on time. She had kleenex ready, mints in hand, and spoke eloquently telling the story of us. She gave encouragement during moments of nervousness and direction in moments of uncertainty throughout the ceremony to make it all work beautifully.

She will mail the papers for you after with a tracking number, provides you details/costs for the paperwork component with the province, provides a Zoom rehearsal, prompt responses, and significant support with the important reminder to enjoy the process in spite of the stress before it's all over.

Really. She is amazing and I am confident that she will have hundreds of reviews all with 5 stars in no time, so book her if/while you can.

Thanks Shelley!

Shelley was absolutely wonderful! She officiated a very small and casual backyard ceremony for us and was extremely accommodating. It was exactly what we were looking for and would highly recommend!

Shelley is Fantastic

Shelley is a fantastic officiant who really made the process smooth and painless. She walked us through each step in the preliminary call and then walked us through it all again in the rehearsal she did with us the week before. Her words were beautiful and she made sure we understood exactly what to do at any given moment absolutely effortlessly. Would highly recommend her services to anyone.

I love the magic that happens at a wedding ceremony as I witness and officiate a couple's love story.

I also love supporting people who are struggling to live their best life by offering fast, effective, and lasting change as an Intuitive Healer, Soul Counsellor, and Teacher. I founded Eagles Wings Healing Centre in 1999 and have helped people all over the world for the last 2 decades.

When I'm in play mode I love to roller skate and hike or sit and chat with a friend over a coffee.

My greatest blessing is being a new grandmother!
