I live in Barrie and was a finalist, ranking second in the recent prestigious Wedding Industry Expert's award contest as the 'Best Ceremony Celebrant' in Barrie. Whether you choose a traditional family service or a less conventional gathering to celebrate your new addition, I would be happy to help you make it "yours". Let's have it reflect your wishes and meaningful thoughts so it will hold fond memories for a very long time. My work at Hospice Simcoe in Barrie as Family Support Coordinator brings me to people at all stages of living and I have learned well that our life events need to reflect honour, gratitude, wonder and humour and they need to be made to measure. This is your child's special day. I would be happy to share in it.

I'm retired and my wife and I live in Wasaga Beach. Having many family members and friends from a variety of cultures, religious beliefs and backgrounds I accept and respect the differences and similarities there are between us all. I am quite comfortable performing religious or spiritual Baptisms or non-denominational Naming Ceremonies for families who have definite ideas about how the event could be made more special or significant to them. Whether you want your special occasion to be large or small, formal or informal, intimate, spiritual or non-denominational, I will work with you to achieve your desired outcome. My goal is to ensure that your ceremony reflects your values, life style and personal beliefs leaving you with a lasting and meaningful memory. A former broadcaster with CBC Radio and as a confident professional I pride myself on bringing calm, affirming support and acceptance to your special day by being easy going, a good listener and very flexible. My wife has basic American Sign Language skills and her support could be available if needed or desired.
