I’m a Peterborough/Kawarthas based bilingual officiant (English & French) with degrees from the University of Toronto and Laurentian with a passion for running and cycling. As a father to four daughters, I’ve seen first-hand how important, memorable and hectic wedding planning can be. It’s important to me that each wedding ceremony I officiate is stress-free, memorable, personable and unique for each bride and groom. With several years’ experience performing weddings, including my own daughters, I’m committed to working with you to ensure your vision for your ceremony becomes a reality. Looking forward to hearing from you to discuss your special day.
I hope to use my many talents to make one the most important events of your life meaningful and memorable. I’m comfortable conducting the wedding ceremony of your choosing. I’m a B.A. graduate of Victoria College, University of Toronto in English Language and Literature, having also studied the Classics and Italian. After having enjoyed a career teaching high school English, Latin and Drama in Toronto for three decades, I’ve now retired to Bobcaygeon to run a Bed and Breakfast. My hobbies include the Arts, antiques, animals, and travel.
