Absolutely perfect!

Sherry was an absolute delight to work with. Her format right out of the gates fully matched our ceremony vibes and she was 100% flexible when we asked for additions and changes. She took time to sit down with us, get to know us, and really truly understand us. We made a connection with her that was real, she almost felt like family. Her ceremony was beautiful, the words reflected our feelings and it was short and sweet just like we asked. We got to the altar and our best man had forgotten our rings in the house, Sherry rolled with it and helped ad-lib until they were retrieved, such a pro! I would 100% recommend her for her wonderful personality and the heart she puts into making sure our story was told. We want to hire her for our vow renewal! Haha! She’s a genuine person who really loves what she does and you can tell through her communications and interactions. We really appreciated everything she brought on our big day!

The Loveliest Officiant

Sherry was my officiant for my wedding last weekend. She was calm and well-organized, and her warmth made the ceremony so lovely and personal. We got a lot of compliments from guests about how touched they were by her reading.

Tim and Linda’s Wedding

Sherry was incredible. It was 46 degrees Celsius in the shade on our special day and the most memorable part of our day was the excellent ceremony we had that Sherry performed. Not only was she professional, punctual and had great delivery she chose beautiful and memorable excerpts for justvthe right moments and she honoured one of our recently passed relatives beautifully. She knew exactly what to say and do at exactly the right time. I was so comfortable with her and actually really enjoyed every moment of being there with my husband. Everyone commented on her amazing delivery and how thoughtful her extra little touches were. I would highly recommend Sherry. She was bar none the best on all accounts.

Amazing! Highly recommend!

Both my sister and I used Sherry for our weddings. Sherry is so warm and makes everything feel so personal. She is very engaging; our biggest compliment we heard from many people was how intimate she made it in such a perfect amount of time! I strongly recommend her services! She is so very easy to work with! Our ceremony was amazing and would not have been the same without her! 10/10

So Impressed!

We booked Sherry to officiate our wedding in May 2018. Not only was she professional, warm, and enthusiastic, she was also very accommodating and understanding when we had a last-minute venue change. Her ceremony was beautiful and we received so many compliments from our guests on her presentation. We highly recommend her!
