Wedding officiant Jacqueline Hoare

It’s true, I’ve witnessed my fair share of weddings.  They are just all the more special when the wedding officiant has made an effort to get to know the couple and create a unique service for them.  Enter marriage commissioner Jacqueline Hoare.  Today I’m happy to share some insight into this wonderful lady, full of personality and insight.

From Jacquie…

I Love LOVE and I am very passionate about celebrating the lives people live.  In the last eight years, I have had the privilege of performing hundreds of wedding ceremonies.  My goal is to create a meaningful ceremony with heart and humour. I want my couples to walk away feeling like they have been swept up in a total experience, which they, their family and friends will cherish and remember forever.

A wedding ceremony is a chapter in a story which tells the past, celebrates the present and looks forward to the future. It is the heart of the wedding.  I encourage my couples to have some fun and be authentic to themselves in the planning of their special day. My goal is to tell a unique story for every couple. Every word is carefully prepared.  Whether they have a clear picture of their ceremony, or they have absolutely no idea, we’ll work together to create a meaningful, personal, and magical ceremony that they will never forget.  That includes a simple, but meaningful ceremony, to a ceremony designed to incorporate rituals reflecting their personal faith, beliefs and culture.  I’ve performed ceremonies in living rooms, grand hotel ballrooms and mountaintops.  I welcome the challenge of creating and working with each couple to write the perfect ceremony that tells their love story.
