Thank you for being here and welcome! Marriage Officiants are essential and so weddings are and essential service!
I officiated 57 weddings in 2020 during a pandemic, and would love to serve you in this capacity as well.
I am currently doing indoor ceremonies limited to 10 people maximum which includes the couple, myself and 2 witnesses plus 5 guests. I am making sure to observe safety for all participants.
I am flexible to your needs and can change dates and times (based on availability) as needed to accommodate any changes in government policies or the need to change dates and times due to circumstances.
I can most times accommodate last minute ceremonies provided you have a valid Marriage License or will obtain one by the date that you want. Please check with your municipality, or you can go outside of your area to get a license sooner. Some municipalities won't offer the Marriage License unless it is within 2 weeks of issue and some also request that you book the officiant first. If you need to book the officiant first, I can provide the letter once you book at no extra cost.
The Simple Ceremony is $200.00 plus HST for me to come to you within Brampton and Mississauga. Outside those areas a mileage fee may apply.
I am flexible, great to work with and very organized.
I specialize in Indian weddings requiring the legal component here in Brampton and the wedding to be held at a later date in India. I also can help expedite ceremonies with immigration requirements to get the Marriage Certificate quickly.

Great energy, calm demeanor, flexible, and inclusive.
We loved Rev. Barbara's energy and spirit as soon as we spoke with her. She is someone who truly values the important things and understands the true institution of marriage. We wanted a simple wedding in our backyard after having to re-plan with little notice. She was able to support our needs, incorporate our cultural practices, and see to it that we were married. We would highly recommend her!Sent on 27/04/2020

Wonderful, accommodating, and just what we needed
Barbara officiated our wedding at our home. She was accommodating when things did not go as planned and was very pleasant. She had great communication with us leading up to the date and everything went as planned. We really appreciated her variety of sample vows and rings exchanges to personalize our ceremony and loved all the suggestions she had. She was great and you will be very happy having her officiate your wedding!!!Sent on 19/06/2020

A great experience at a precious moment in our lives.
Barbara spent considerable time with us in advance of the event to ensure that everything ran smoothly on the big day. Her attention to detail impressed us. And then during the actual ceremony, her calm and soothing voice helped to bring out the best in us all because she had us relaxed, allowing us to focus on our time of joyful celebration.Sent on 07/09/2019
