My husband and I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! Rachel understood the type of people we were and guided us through every part of the ceremony. She took great care about getting to know us before the wedding day – we met with her a few times to talk about our journey, how we met each other, why we want to get married, what our hopes and dreams were for our wedding day. It was wonderful to share our journey with her and the reflections reminded us of how much we loved each other and all the amazing memories we had together. Rachel was able to weave that through the ceremony - which was so lovely!
She also shared a great list of discussion questions for us to talk about as a couple – questions that would come up throughout our life together. Unfortunately, my father got very ill before the wedding day and was unable to attend – which was very emotional for my husband and I – but Rachel was so supportive, caring, and empathetic throughout the process. Our wedding day really would not have been the same without her!

Rachel was a wonderful officiant. Creating our wedding service with Rachel was stress free. Her humour, articulation, and care were present right through from the planning to the ceremony itself. She created a ceremony that perfectly mixed the traditional and non-traditional values my partner and I hold.
