“Everything we wanted and nothing more
We are very pleased with Candace’s services. We wanted a simple and elegant ceremony. She has a great demeanor and personality. She answered any questions we had fully and promptly. Definitely would recommend!- Adam & Ashley”
“Wonderfully Personalized Ceremony
Candace helped us create the most wonderful and personalized ceremony! From the first email to every last detail, Candace went above and beyond to ensure that we’d be able to have the experience that we had our hearts set on. We decided on a canvas ceremony and were delighted to see the beautiful easel she brought for us to use. She is patient and overall a very nice person. The ceremony was more then we had hoped for and we are so thankful to her for the memories that we will forever hold dear. – Olga”
Candace was such a fantastic part of our wedding, we were so lucky to have found her online.
Her energy and earthiness was exactly the vibe we were going for and her hands off, laid back but professional approach during the planning phases really helped us iron out what it is we were looking for.
Thank you Candace!
Love Ashley & Graeme”
The Best Officiant
Couldn’t pick a better person for my ceremony. Candace made everybody comfortable and relaxed a specially bride and groom. She made our guest involved in ceremony.we like to thank you from the bottom of our heart ~ Beata
Candace is very professional and helpful.
She gave us very clear instructions on how the ceremony would be conducted. On the day of our wedding we actually forgot our marriage certificate, and Candace was helpful in providing solutions and had lots of patience to wait for the certificate to be delivered by another friend. We would definitely recommend Candace.- Karen”
Working with Candace was nothing short of excellent. From the first email to the end of the ceremony, she made sure it was exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t have picked someone better to perform the ceremony. Candace was just wonderful. Couldn’t recommend her enough. Thank you again! ❤️ – Amanda”
We were proud to have Candace officiate our wedding. She was more then happy to partake in our “off the beaten path” ceremony. With her expertise going well beyond just officiating, We highly commend taking advantage of all services she has to offer.”
“Beautiful ceremony & so professional!
We were so happy we hired Candace as our officiant! My husband and I eloped so it was a bit challenging to find an officiant that still made us feel important and gave us agency to customize our ceremony. We loved the base that Candace provided and heavily incorporated it into the ceremony we ultimately used. Leading up to our wedding, she was very quick, warm and friendly in all correspondence – answering my questions about the marriage license, ideas for the ceremony, etc. On the day of, she was early, dressed very nicely and helped create such a beautiful ambiance. I would highly recommend Candace to anyone looking for an officiant, she was such an incredible find! – Shaina
“Flexible and creative….

“Pleasure to work with….
Candace was such a pleasure to work with. Communication was effortless and very responsive. She listened to our ideas about what my husband and I wanted out of our ceremony and tailored a custom ceremony to suit our needs perfectly.

Intention creates everything.
And it is with the best intentions that we decide to join with another soul and create a life together. There are so many mixed emotions that can surface when something as powerful and life changing as a union or marriage is taking place. Expectations that we didn’t know we had, or pressures from family and friends can create chaos in what most of wish to be a peace and love-filled celebration.
It is therefore really important to choose the right people to stand with you and witness your union, and an officiant who genuinely loves what she does and brings great joy to such an important life passage.
We were so fortunate to have Candace Hawkshaw give a very special and personal Reiki Blessing at our wedding. From greeting the guests and creating a space of welcoming and joy, Candace poured a lot of personal care, attention and natural joie de vivre into our celebration. She handcrafted a beautiful book which contains the blessing she shared; It’s a keepsake we will always have and cherish, and we know the time and love that went into all facets of Candace being part of our wedding day.
If you are looking for a beautiful, loving and joy-filled energy to bring to your ceremony, we highly recommend Candace. The happiness she feels for the couples she works with is genuine as she is a believer in love and exudes that in all she does.

Candace, your presence there brought forth a calm, loving, secure feeling that I certainly needed at that time. We loved all your ideas and every word that you came up with and said. Wow! We are so happy.
We loved the Romantic Sand Ceremony – brilliant idea on your part – thank you and specially thank you forgetting the Port Dalhousie sand for us as we didn’t have the time to get it ourselves.
We loved the Hands Ceremony – again, brilliant idea on your part and wow, what a very meaningful part of our ceremony. my new husband and I and the guests also commented on how peaceful you were, how it was like we knew you for years – and that’s not an easy thing to do!, I calmed right down when you hugged me because just before that you obviously picked up on my nerves and tears etc. Thank you for keeping me afloat during the whole thing.
I thought that we wanted to write something ourselves to add to the vows you wrote for us, but we changed our minds, not really because we ran out of time, but because you already said everything that we wanted to say to each other! The vows and words that you wrote to me were romantic, loving and very meaningful to that of a couple in love to be married, and then with my little amendments here and there, together you and i came up with the perfect words altogether! It was so personal and meaningful. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anyone better than what you did for us! We are truly grateful
Thank you ever so much for everything that you’ve done! We couldn’t have asked you for anything else because you went above and beyond for us and treated us like family and for that we loved everything and we now love you too!!!!
THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH CANDACE, EXTREMELY BEAUTIFULLY DONE MY LADY!!!
