Wedding Officiants in Southhampton, Ontario

Pamela Vermilyea

Pamela VermilyeaI have lived 30 plus years on the Bruce Peninsula overlooking beautiful Colpoys Bay in Wiarton, where my three children grew up. One of my greatest passions is my bees. Beekeeping has helped me to gain more tolerance, acceptance, patience, and a strong determination to succeed. After observing the need in our community for non-denominational but meaningful spiritual wedding rites, I become an Officiant. My goal is to assist you as a couple in creating a wedding ceremony that is unique to your values and personal meaning. It would give me much pleasure to be part of your special day as your officiant bringing forth a fun and spirited outlook.

Janelle Shortt

Janelle ShorttI’m a friendly, caring, high-energy individual with a terrific sense of humour; one of my favorite things is meeting new people. Married to my husband and long-time partner for many years; we have a son and two beautiful granddaughters. I retired in 2014 from the Ministry of the Attorney General where I was a Court Reporter. Living just outside of Owen Sound on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay with our only baby still left at home, Sassy, an 80-pound Doberman who thinks she is a lapdog. In my spare time, I sing bass with a woman’s barbershop chorus for 20 years and am also part of a quartet with the same group. Music has always been a large part of my life and it isn’t unusual to hear me singing away. I have a passion for sewing, gardening, stained glass creations, decorating and most of all being Grandma. I would love to have the opportunity to officiate at your non-denominational or spiritual wedding ceremony and know I can help make your day a truly exceptional and memorable experience.
