Wedding Officiant, Life Celebrant, Retired Naturopathic Doctor, Minister with CIMM, Artist

Essence Ceremonies was born out of my passion for helping people find and celebrate ever increasing love in their lives. Infusing wedding ceremonies with the essence of love is my joy.

There are several other ways that I work with individuals and couples. Part of my ministry with CIMM is to help celebrate special occasions and provide couples with the opportunity to create a shared vision for their life together.

Another is to help people through the rough patches in their lives as a Energy Medicine Practitioner.

Meditation is an important part of my spiritual practice and I host a twice monthly meditation group to explore spiritual topics and support each other as we create a more loving relationship with ourselves. This self compassion has a wonderful way of spilling out into all the relationships in our lives.

Education is important to me. I hold degrees in Biology and Naturopathic Medicine, am a Certified Energy Therapist and teach Meditation and Body Tuning.

Creating Special Ceremonies 

There are times when we gather together to bear witness as our loved ones join in marriage, name a new baby, bless a new home or pass from this world. I am a certified Life Celebrant trained to listen deeply to your story and create from that a beautiful ceremony celebrating your life and love. I have the honour of putting words to the deeper feelings that long to be spoken.  

I have enjoyed a 30 year career in health care and adult education. This has given me insight into people and the ability to listen deeply to bring forth the love stories that lift us all and long to be shared. It is an honour to be invited into someone's inner circle to help capture the essence of their unique love story. I recognize this privilege and will arrive on your wedding day on time, with your crafted ceremony in hand, act in a professional manner and celebrate the miracle of love with you and your friends and family.

It is a joy to hear the stories couples tell me and craft a ceremony that truly reflects their journey to love and vision for their lives together.
