Deborah Redman, BA, MDiv

Congratulations! My passion is to provide a great wedding ceremony experience for all who call upon me. For me, the ceremony is the focus and heart of your wedding day. I love to work with couples who want their ceremony to reflect their values and what they love about each other. I'll provide a caring, authentic presence during this important and meaningful day of your life, and help create a cherished memory for you both. I’m an ordained minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church located in Sidney, BC. I have presided at hundreds of weddings since 1989, from very formal large weddings, to an intimate gathering at the beach.

Paul & Catherine
Deborah Redman went above and beyond for our brief, little wedding ceremony. She met with us twice beforehand and was in touch with us every step along the way for at least 6 months. She provided us with guidance regarding the procurement of the wedding license and helped us solve an issue with a spelling matter. In addition, she was open to being at the beach on February 29—when the weather was windy and chilly! She also found a fitting and brilliant reading that worked especially for us. We would both STRONGLY recommend Deborah as an officiant. She was both personable and professional. Everything was PERFECT! Kind regards, Catherine and Paul Hosegrove.  February 2024

Lisa & Graeme
Rev. Deborah Redman is awesome and we are so glad she was our officiant. She helped us create a unique ceremony and she was super flexible about adding and changing things around to make it about us. She had great advice and wisdom to share about the ceremony. She is super friendly, warm, and kind. She did an excellent job on our wedding day and all of our guests could hear her perfectly (even without a microphone). She was calm, cool, and collected and it made us feel a lot better standing up there. I would highly recommend her to any couple.

Sharon & Michael
My husband and I were renewing our vows after 18 years and we wanted a special ceremony at our home that would include our grown children and grandchildren. Rev Deborah Redman met with us about a month before the ceremony and took note of what we envisioned and then helped us out by giving suggestions and different possibilities. On our renewal day, she was at our home promptly as scheduled and met with the family before commencing the ceremony. We were so touched and astounded really at the beautiful ceremony Deborah had created just for us, it was far more than we had ever imagined, she seemed to know us and our story more than the 45 minutes or so we had met with her could have allowed for. Even our photographer had tears in her eyes and said how touched she was by the ceremony. Deborah is very professional and it's obvious she loves what she does beyond the monetary level. She helped make our special day forever memorable for us and our family.
