Creating Ceremonies for the Seasons of Your Life

    Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.

Currently, the New Brunswick Marriage Act notes that there three options available for those wanting to be legally married. The Marriage Act states that Clerks and Deputy Clerks of the Court of Queen’s Bench; clerics of churches and religious denominations can solemnize marriages and, as of April 1, 2014, a third type of officiant named a Civil Officiant may now solemnize civil marriage ceremonies throughout the province. Therefore, if you would like to have a personalized ceremony from Tree of Life Celebrant Ceremonies you will need to have a quick legal ceremony to get the paperwork done.

The good news is that I can refer you to several local attorneys that now have the legal Civil Officiant designation who will be happy to work with you to provide this service prior to your public ceremony.

Better news... If you have a separate legal service, that leaves us more space to get creative with your ceremony without having to interrupt the romance with the dry legal wording and paperwork required by the province.

Let’s talk about the possibilities and see what works best for you!
