A vessel fitting a proper Ontario wedding. Modern Rituals

Weddings

How do you like your wedding? Buttered? Lightly toasted?

Your wedding could be a sprawling affair, with hundreds of guests.  Speakers, poetry recitals, musical interludes and interpretive dance performances can all be included, as you wish.  It could be at a swanky yacht club, a favourite restaurant, a provincial park, the rather lovely looking Black River Resort, which I hear is particularly fabulous in July – in fact, it can be anywhere at all.† *.

Or you may prefer to go small.  I call them nano-weddings, but the hipper term is elopement. The legal minimum complement is you, your officiant and two witnesses.  Which means you can be married in fifteen minutes at a coffee shop and be on your way.   A fun option is a surprise wedding, where you hoodwink your guests into getting together on a scurrilous pretext, say, a fancy dinner, and – BANG! – a wedding breaks out!

Your wedding should fit you like those old jeans your mom always wanted you to throw away, but you couldn’t because they felt like part of you.

It’s entirely up to you.

Your wedding should fit you like those old jeans your mom always wanted you to throw away, but you couldn’t because they felt like part of you. My part in your wedding is to work with you, so that you get to say everything you want to say, in the way you want to say it.  If that means interpretive dance, well, let’s boogie!  I honestly can’t complain if it does, because when my wife and I married many years ago in our back garden, we created a wedding ceremony based around the concept of compost, and made our bemused guests sing pseudo hymns about phytoplankton.  So, er…

I’m based locally around Peterborough and the Kawarthas, but I’m prepared to travel; the GTA is well within reach, and further afield can be accommodated (see Rates for details).

I’ll be delighted to work with you to create and deliver your wedding ceremony. To discuss ideas, please feel free to contact me!
