Making Your Ceremony Stand Out
Wedding Ceremonies Available:
We (Lynne and Keith) have performed over 2,000 ceremonies during the past 15 years and have found that every couple has been unique. Likewise we feel that every wedding ceremony we perform should be equally unique and not, as all too often happens, a standard one template fits all approach.
It's our belief that the design of your wedding ceremony should fully reflect who you are and what both of you believe in as a couple and as individuals. We have determined that the best way to achieve this is to completely involve you in creating your own highly personalized ceremony. Our experience has shown them that you will intuitively know what resonates and is right for you from the many options that we offer.
We will give you the guidance, advice and tools for putting together an exceptional wedding ceremony. We make themselves available for help and questions and give you complete license to create the ceremony of your vision. The result is that the ceremony we officiate for you will be a magnificent reflection of your personalities, backgrounds, values, and beliefs. In the end, your wedding ceremony will have so much more meaning for you, your families, your guests, and yes, even for us.
The focal point of all weddings always comes down to that 30 minute period when your ceremony is underway, usually with your family and friends witnessing its unfolding. How it occurs for your ceremony depends mainly upon which officiant you entrust to design and perform your wedding.
While most wedding ceremonies performed in the Ottawa area tend to be relatively similar in style and content - impersonal, bland, humourless, and churchy, you do have the option of having a joyful, fun and heart-felt wedding custom scripted about the two of you and integrated with numerous innovative elements that collectively will surpass anything which you and your guests have ever experienced previously.
Over the past 15 years, we have progressively raised the bar in the Ottawa area by blending innovation with tradition. Drawing upon our theatrical backgrounds, we integrate many fresh new perspectives to the design and execution of your ceremony so that the result is customized to reflect your unique values, personalities, and sense of humour. Since we frequently observe each other in action, we continue to tweak our ceremony design and delivery to ensure that you have access to the most contemporary options for your own ceremony.
Have another look at the photo above (and many of the photos on this site) and notice where the bride and groom (Manon & Jeff) are positioned and where we are standing. Now imagine how the rest of their ceremony photos look like, unencumbered by having the officiant smack in the middle of most of them, often with a microphone sticking out of the head.
Moreover, think about how your guests will feel as they focus their eyes on just you and your wedding party throughout the ceremony. They're looking at you from the front and not staring at your back sides for the whole ceremony. Your guests come to see you, not the officiant, so we position themselves amongst the guests where we can be heard by everyone but the attention stays on you, where it belongs.
We really understand the feelings that are flowing throughout this special day of yours. We know how to calibrate every element of the ceremony to help hit all the emotional highpoints that will leave you, your family and guests more than satisfied. Have a quick look here at what many of our clients said about their experience with our innovative approach.
Central to our mission is the education we do for all our couples as to what our ceremony can be as opposed to simply replicating the same tired old ritual. We put our couples fully in control of all the elements especially with regards to the wording of your script so that it reflects your values and personalities. And with our guided rehearsals, we ensure that you and your wedding party all have the poise and confidence to pull it all off with grace and elegance.
Each of our ceremonies is unique and usually results in immediate acclaim from the guests as they congratulate the couple on their masterful originality. Approaching ceremonies this way requires a greater investment of time and effort on our part to ensure that you get the highest qualitative level possible. This is something that your guests will remember positively for years to come.
If you think that you and your guests deserve a superior and enjoyable wedding experience, and you want the peace of mind that comes with it, contact us (Lynne or Keith) at 613-831-7555 to see how we can help your execute your vision perfectly.
