Having lived in Canmore, Alberta for over 30 years now, I never take the place where I live for granted. I get to wake every day to a wonderful Rocky Mountain View and I share those days with my wife, Marian.

We get to spend a great deal of time together and sometimes she is even called upon to be a witness for an elopement ceremony. In between weddings, we kayak on the many lakes in the area and maybe even squeeze in a walk or a bike ride around town.

I am a hopeless romantic and a favorite movie is The Princess Bride. One of my car licence plates is MAWAGE and I have started at least a couple of weddings in the style of Peter Cook's "The Impressive Clergyman", but only when requested of course.

Since my appointment as an Alberta Marriage Commissioner in July of 2014, it has been a privilege to perform over 600 marriage ceremonies.

My involvement with weddings goes back almost 40 years from when I first started a DJ business in Calgary. Over the years I saw the DJ business change from just playing music at the reception to what it has become today with the DJ providing music for the ceremony and audio support, Master of Ceremonies at the reception and much more.

In the 10 years prior to selling my DJ service to one of my long time staff members, I took many workshops, attended countless seminars and invested many hours to one goal, creating a customized, personalized and memorable experience for my clients.

This wealth of experience is now used to create customized, personalized and memorable marriage ceremonies for the many couples that have chosen the Canadian Rocky Mountains, specifically, the Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise areas as the location where they will exchange their vows.

In addition to Marriage Ceremonies, I also offer Vow Renewals and Commitment Ceremonies.

Whether you are looking for a full ceremony with readings and unity ceremonies or just a short and sweet ceremony prior to a destination wedding, I would love to have the opportunity to chat with you about what your perfect marriage ceremony looks like.
