YOUR CUSTOM WEDDING CEREMONY

Infusing your ceremony with the essence of love. 

Honouring and celebrating love is my joy. 
It is wonderful to find the good and wonderful in life day by day and there are times when we gather together to bear witness

as a couple take the leap and join in marriage. 
My name is Susan Hamilton and I have the honour of being that witness and

helping others to put words to the deeper feelings that long to be spoken.

Whether you’re looking to create a simple ceremony in your living room, an outdoor setting or a Wedding Ceremony in the grand ballroom of a hotel, I have the expertise and heart to craft the words to suit you to a T.

THE FIRST DRAFT

Creating your Personal Ceremony

Trust Essence Ceremonies to take care of your ceremony until you are completely satisfied with it. When we are finished, you will have a ceremony that is fully approved by you and reflects the heart of who you are as a couple, your personalities, where you have come from and your hopes and dreams for the future.  I guarantee your Wedding Ceremony will have those in attendance raving about the event afterwards.

Getting Married

REHEARSAL & CEREMONY

The Big Day Has Come

The rehearsal is important if you are having a larger wedding with several attendants and you want everything to go smoothly. It helps everyone to relax, including you, so they can enjoy the ceremony.  On the day of your wedding, I will arrive at least a half hour before your ceremony to meet with the venue manager, musicians, DJ, photographers and key family members so that your ceremony will flow smoothly.

Business Meeting

THE PAPERWORK

Taking Care of the Legal Details

Trust Essence Ceremonies to take care of all the paperwork and legalities. I’ll submit all the necessary legal documents to Alberta Vital Statistics or Victoria Vital Statistics Agency and provide you with a copy of your Wedding Ceremony as a keepsake. You are in good hands.
