    Book her now

    Valerie officiated our ceremony in Roseneath ON on July 27, 2019 and Valerie was a complete gem to work with. While we lived in Toronto, Valerie was more than accommodating to find dates and locations to meet with us. She was very responsive and put us at ease on how our day would go. She came very prepared with a whole encyclopedia of example scripts and on the day of, she spoke very well and our guests specifically mentioned how beautiful our ceremony was, in part due to Valerie’s officiating.

    Not One Complaint

    Valerie was amazing! I would definitely recommend her to anyone! She was more than helpful with ideas, very accommodating of our location and went over and above what I was expecting. Wanting only our kids at the ceremony, we would have been short a witness if her husband didn't come along and sign for us as well. They were both wonderful people and they helped make our day perfect! Thanks again Valerie!

    Amazing Officiant!

    We had the pleasure of working with Val to design our dream ceremony. Val was supportive, kind and knowledgable, offering many suggestions and ideas from her experiences to help us. She was available to meet and discuss ideas or ask questions throughout the process. We received numerous compliments for how personal our ceremony was on focusing on our love. We are honoured to have worked with Val and highly recommend her as an officiant.
