Highly recommend - amazing!
From the moment we met Ann we were so comfortable speaking to her and we knew she would be the perfect person to marry us. She was kind and thoughtful and wrote out our ceremony beautifully. She truly captured our relationship and made the crowd laugh, smile and tear up. We were so happy with how smoothly it went and how wonderful she was. We received so many compliments on our ceremony, and would highly recommend Ann to anyone!Sent on 27/11/2020

Our nautical wedding on the St Lawrence river
Ann was very professional but at the same time she felt like an old friend. She made our ceremony very personal and memorable. Our guests said it was the most beautiful relaxed wedding ever.Sent on 12/01/2020

The perfect ceremony
We wanted an unusual ceremony, and Ann more than delivered! We gave her the theme, she went out and researched and came back to us with the perfect, perfect ceremony. We were stunned and thrilled. Thank you.Sent on 08/02/2019
The Ceremony Company's reply:Thank you, Heddy, for your wonderful review! I truly enjoyed writing your special Aikido ceremony. Researching and then weaving together all of the words and symbols that were meaningful to you and Gary was both an education and an honour for me! And what a beautiful day and wedding it was!

I love ceremony and being able to celebrate all of those key life's moments with the people important to me. And what could be more natural than helping you to do that too?
With more than 35 years of combined experience in management, communications, presentations, journalism, theatre, child-raising (I have 5 kids!), musical and artistic pursuits, I bring all of my best creative skills to making your ceremony a reflection of the two of you.
In my spare time, I garden and walk the trails around our 11-acre country home, paddleboat or skate on our pond, ride motorcycle (when there isn't any snow!), snowmobile (when there is snow!), perform in and support local theatre and music venues, quilt, knit and read. Our dog and cat keep us cozy in the winter and always on the move.
