Getting married? I'm a licensed Officiant!

About me


I have lived in Peterborough and the Kawarthas for more than four decades. For twenty years, I was a wedding photographer, capturing images of beautiful couples in love, across Canada and in the Caribbean. In January 2017, I became licensed in Ontario to perform secular wedding ceremonies through Humanist Canada. Humanist wedding ceremonies are inclusive and welcoming to all couples regardless of faith, ethnicity, sexual orientation or cultural heritage. Whether your day is a private elopement or a large affair with friends and family, my ceremonies allow you the freedom to have the service of your choice, without religious constraints and context. We will work together to create the ceremony 

your envision on your wedding day! 

Your ceremony, your way!

Humanist Ceremonies


Your ceremony can be short, sweet and memorable, for those who are less comfortable in front of a crowd. Perhaps you would prefer an hour filled with music, stories, readings and bonding ceremonies? Want your family or friends to be part of the ceremony? 

Want to ride in on your horse? 

Have your dogs bring the rings?

Cosplay attire? Unusual setting? 

Eloping? Destination wedding assurance? Vow renewal? LGBTQ+?  Different faith/cultures?
My ceremonies can accommodate almost any service you can imagine! Your wedding ceremony is a reflection of your wishes. The service will respect your choice of pronouns and incorporate customs and traditions you wish to include, as long as there is no religious content to your ceremony.
