For as long as I can remember I have adored celebrations and family gatherings.

They are the fabric of our lives.

I am thrilled to write and perform custom ceremonies to help you celebrate, love, heal, grieve or make any momentous transitions in your life.

​

​

​

I come from a long history of romantic writers and talented performers.  Even my own mother wrote a romantic novel at 80! I can tell you about it..

 

However it is really Me who really wants to know your Love Story!

 

 

​

​

A Family Heirloom!

When we take the time to write your love story down, it becomes an actual heirloom. A thing to revisit again and again. Precious beyond monetary value. When you can reflect on why and how you fell in love it helps to understand and clarify for you, the essence of your love. There may never be another time when you will have the opportunity to immortalize your love story. 

  Your Loveography will keep you rooted in your love.

"I can't help falling in love with you !"

 

I began my acting career in the company of none other than the infamous Tony the Tiger. We ate cereal together on a Kellog's Frosted Flakes commercial and he told me I was grrrreat!. 

Tony the Tiger was cute and I had big crush on him. Of course what did anyone know about a gluten free diet back then? I also never suspected he was the culprit behind all of my sugar crashes! All I knew that was I adored that tiger and I truly thought we would meet.. well in person. I was 5 then and the director told me to just look up at the empty space above me and smile because Tony would be drawn in later by some animation artist! In my imagination, I was thinking I might get a kiss from that tiger. Well that was an awakening! Be that as it may, I am the first to tell you, I have never shied away from being romantic, being imaginative or from speaking in public.

​

I create meaningful, personal ceremonies that come alive for you and your audience. I am certified by The Celebrant Foundation and Institute which is the gold standard for celebrant training. The Celebrant Institute is a non profit centre with members worldwide.

I am open to everyone. Please do not let cost stand in love's way either. If you are struggling with fees, please talk to me as I can offer you some creative solutions!

​

AND now HERE IS A FUNNY SECRET.. 

As a teenager, I was like a "Cyrano Debergerac." I composed love letters and poems for my girlfriends to give to their romantic interests. It was thrilling, except I had to keep it secret so I couldn't even take the credit for those awesome teenage love letters. 

Becoming a Life Cycle Celebrant and "Loveographer" has now allowed me to celebrate my own fascination with love and romance, spice it up with my performance and public speaking talents..and I can even receive some of the credit. Although writing your ceremony is in truth a bit of a co creation. You and me Kid, so let's write this thing! You don't actually need to be a writer at all. Just like my teenage buddies did, you can just each talk to me separately and tell me about your love story. I will turn it into your one and only Loveography!

I am thrilled to be harnessing my passions to the fullest! I can write and perform meaningful, entertaining, heart felt ceremonies just for you!

This allows you to stay true to yourself and me to keep your audience listening and on the edge of their seats, all the way up to the big kiss! 

​

 

I am also an ordained Minister. 

   The Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry to which I belong are a lovely open minded bunch! They allow their ministers the freedom to perform interfaith ceremonies respecting all love, equality and peace based ceremonies. The gentleness of their approach reminds me of some favourite lyrics.. by Van Morrison, 'No Guru, No Method, No Teacher, just you and me in nature.. in the garden wet with rain. 

I am 100 percent supportive of LBTQ + unions. 

If you are curious on where I stand. I feel a oneness with all things. My spirituality is found in the presence of nature and in the loving exchanges I have between the people and the animals of our world.

I believe we are free to think and independently investigate our own truths.

You are welcome to come to me for a remarriage, a same sex union, an interfaith ceremony or any other kind of ceremony that you need to celebrate, grieve, transition or heal. My heart is open to you and I will always facilitate you with love and respect.  

​

If you want a ceremony that reflects your own personalties with no pressure to adopt anyone else's, then I am the match for you!
