One of the most important decisions you will make, when planning your magical big day, is the Officiant...
Who will lead your fairytale ceremony?
As an Ordained Wedding Officiant for the province of Ontario and Quebec, I know how important this decision is for you. You want someone you can trust. You want someone who you can depend on throughout your whole journey together.
I am here to offer you a magical experience. Think of me as a little fairy sprinkling love and light as I empower you throughout the wedding planning, your magical big day and your lives together from this day forward.
I vow to walk alongside your entire journey together - to celebrate all of life’s transitions with you – the triumphs and the challenges. As humans, we must welcome all of it.
I promise to sprinkle love and light onto everything that I create, knowing that it is my purpose to share this abundance of love and faith with you.
From the heart, I will channel and craft a Sacred Union Ceremony that is uniquely created for you and your partner, understanding that you stand as power and balance individually on your own and you come together to form a powerful and unshakable sacred bond of two absolutely beautiful souls. We will not be celebrating the beginning of a union because your union is already deeply in progress… but we will be celebrating a powerful shift and rise within your relationship. On your wedding day, you will become one as you blend your lives, expand your family, and embark on this great adventure together.
If this resonates with you, please contact me below.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Rev. Nicolle Cardiff
This sacred ritual makes exchanging your vows that much more magical and adds a personal touch to your ceremony. A piece of sacred silk will be presented, and you and your partner will be gifted a Rose Quartz crystal, the stone of unconditional love and compassion. This powerful stone will be placed in your left receiving hand. You will hold that stone at your heart space and, first, recite vows that you promise to make to yourself. How do you promise to stay true to yourself as you join in union? You will transfer the stone into your right hand and recite your vows to your partner as you place the stone in the bundle, symbolizing your commitment and love for your partner. If you wish for your wedding party to be involved, each member of the party can approach the bundle and place their hands around it, blessing your union with pure intentions. Lastly, the Priestess will bless the bundle and ‘tie the knot’. This sacred union bundle will be a powerful token of your union and a special memory from your very special day.
This sacred ritual allows for participation from the wedding party, family and even guests. When it is time to exchange the rings, the Best Man will pass the rings to the Priestess, and she will first pass the rings to the parents’ of the Bride to begin the warming ritual.
As the rings continue to be passed around, each person takes a moment to warm the rings with their love, blessings and prayers which will be embedded in the rings. It is believed that precious metals hold energy. You will carry not only the promises that will make to each other, but also the love and support from everyone who blesses your rings. This is a very special and meaningful ritual.
At the beginning of the ceremony, you light your individual candle, signifying that you stand as power and balance individually on your own. A symbol honouring who you are and how far you have come.
After the exchanging of the vows, together, you light a union candle. A symbol honouring your love for each other and understanding that you come together to form a powerful and unshakeable sacred union that will burn fiercely throughout your entire journey together.
A planting ceremony symbolizes the continuous growth of your love. You are burying your intentions and your vows deep within the soil of your being and making the ideal conditions for this love to continue blossoming. Your loved ones also have a chance to participate by placing their own handful of soil around the plant sending their blessings towards the union.

"Nicolle did an AMAZING job with our ceremony. Right from the very beginning when we asked her to be a part of our wedding she was so helpful with making our ceremony fit us. She included so many little details that made the entire ceremony so personal, and exactly what we wanted. Nicolle never failed to help us feel relaxed and at ease when planning, and helped us mentally and emotionally while preparing ourselves for the big day. She really went above and beyond and helped our day become everything we have ever dreamed of and more. All of the little thoughts and details she put in were shown during the ceremony and we would HIGHLY recommend Nicolle to anybody who might be looking.

"Nicolle officiated our wedding and there is nothing I would have changed. She made our ceremony perfect. Nicolle was great at helping and supporting us through the planning of our ceremony. We were both so glad that we found Nicolle to bring us together."

Like many couples this year, our original wedding was cancelled. After some contemplation we decided to hold a small ceremony regardless, as we are expecting our first born and wanted to be married (even though in every way that matters, we were already married).
Sunshine Raven (Nicolle Cardiff) was recommended to us by a friend of mine, and I am so incredibly grateful that they did.
She took the time to get to know us over video chat, and constantly checked in with us for several months leading up to the date. She helped take what could have been a boring civil proceeding and inspired us to create a beautiful ceremony that I don’t think our original wedding would have been able to offer.
No matter how spiritual/religious you are, she will create the perfect ceremony for you.
