Brianne Forbes

Brianne Forbes The honesty, vulnerability, affirmation and spirituality of wedding ceremonies bring me humbleness, and this unique outlook, coupled with romanticism is what I think separates me from other Officiants. I look forward to working with you on your traditional or spiritual wedding ceremony. Located in London, we spent equal time between London and Toronto and am happy to serve the areas within those locations. Summers are active, spending my free time with my partner and our adopted dogs, Silas a Boston Terrier and Baci, a lab mix – everyone loves long walks on the beach. Come the winter, we all prefer hibernating and reading a good book or watching a documentary on the couch.
