When I was appointed Marriage Commissioner in March 2007, I embarked on a journey filled with more joy and growth that I ever could have imagined. Although marriages are essentially alike, each one unfolds as its own unique adventure. One of my goals as Marriage Commissioner is to assist you in navigating through the expectations and what is important to you. Together we will create a delightful ceremony that will flow smoothly, reflect the two of you as individuals and as a couple, and provide an experience that you will remember fondly in the years to come. I am able to share my years of officiating by offering suggestions and ideas that will enhance your experience. Although your wedding is a solemn occasion, it is also one of great joy and celebration, so if you wish, I welcome an appropriate touch of lightness and humour. During the ceremony, I offer a calm, relaxed presence so you are able to focus on each other and the step you are taking together.
