Since 2009 I have been ordained to marry couples, and it has been an honour to creating meaningful ceremonies that reflect the uniqueness of each couple I work with. During that time I was licensed and ordained as a reverend.
Further to this, I also am also certified through the prestigious Celebrant Institute where I was trained specifically in the art of creating sacred non-denominational ceremonies. This has given me a wonderful perspective, and respect for working with the wonderfully unique couples that have found me over the years. I have created ceremonies from pop up engagements, to burlesque weddings, intentional buddhist weddings, and all of the most wonderful offerings of ceremony in between! As a published author, animist spirit healer, and deeply creative person, I find the process of working with people to create ceremonies one of the most powerful things there is. To say I love my job would be an understatement!
I discovered early in life that I was deeply drawn to discover my souls calling, and spent years training in holistic medicine, herbalism, nutrition and shamanic healing. During that time I channeled these pieces into my work as a birth doula and childbirth educator and ceremonialist. To me there is nothing more powerful than working with people during important life transitions. For years I created meaningful rites of passages and baby blessing ceremonies for families, attended births and taught prenatal classes, and then one day I was asked by some friends to perform the ceremony part of their wedding. I was thrilled, and the experience was so amazing that I knew there was no looking back.
As a dedicated mother to two children, and wife of 17 years I can attest to the importance of sharing life’s transitions with family and community. It is my greatest joy to create meaningful ceremonies that make a big impact on you and your cherished guests. Together we will mark the crossing of a threshold and celebrate this amazing life we all are given.
My intent is that your ceremony will include the things that you hold close to your heart, and that your guests come away having laughed, been misty eyed, and feeling closer to you than before.
