Donna Bekkers-Boyd exceeded our expectations. She was a delight to have as our officiant. Warm and friendly, everyone thought she was excellent, funny and personable.

Robert & Sarah
Donna (Bekkers-Boyd) went above and beyond our expectations. In these crazy times of Covid planning and re-planning a wedding, she has been a calm source of strength and knowledge. Rob and I do not have enough good things to say about her. We had to drastically downscale our wedding to accommodate this new world and she was an integral part of making our wedding always feel special and formal. We highly recommend her, she is a gem! Robert & Sarah, August 2020

Whitney & Eric
We really enjoyed working with Donna Bekkers-Boyd to plan our ceremony. She was so helpful in our pre-planning meeting, providing lots of examples of other ceremonies and readings, and guiding us to write a ceremony that fit our style and what we were looking for. She was also excellent in working with the venue & DJ to coordinate a microphone, timing, and overall execution on the day of the wedding. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a detailed and organized officiant! Whitney & Eric, September 2019

Donna Bekkers-Boyd officiated our wedding in May 2019 in downtown Ottawa. We were so fortunate to have her officiate our wedding ceremony. We appreciate the time she took to meet with us before our wedding. Her guidance, sense of humour, warm smile and encouraging words immediately made us feel at ease. Her kind and encouraging messages were very touching and deeply appreciated. Leading our wedding ceremony, her wonderful personality helped us stay relaxed and comfortable. The ceremony was absolutely perfect and we were truly blessed to have her marry us. We highly recommend Donna! Heather & Shaun, May 2019
