Jacoba Barber-Rozema

I live and work in Montreal, and I am honoured to be able to connect with couples at such a special moment in their lives. With my experience in event planning, I know the immense amount of work it requires to pull off a wedding and would love to work closely with couples to make their spiritual, interfaith or same gender wedding ceremony personalized, thoughtful and beautiful. I speak English and French and can perform bilingual ceremonies. I am pursuing my Bachelor of Classical Voice and Opera at McGill, becoming closely attuned to precise listening and emotional awareness, and can provide a charismatic, relaxed, and intimate presence to the proceedings.

Jacoba (Barber-Rozema) was amazing. Both my wife and I wanted to have a fun, playful but also sincere ceremony. Jacoba made it really easy and simple to understand the processes involved, the options we had with the vows and really helped us own and direct the event ourselves, giving us the confidence to write our own vows and tweak the overall ceremony. At all times we felt in safe hands; Jacoba was in control on the day itself and was extremely helpful in orchestrating the most amazing moment of our lives so far. 5 stars, 10/10, can't say enough and can't thank Jacoba enough.

Jacoba Barber-Rozema went above and beyond to meet our ceremony expectations. It was everything we hoped it would be and she did a wonderful job! Thank you so much, Jacoba for marrying us! It was great to work with you to create vows that suited our beliefs and the sentiments that we wanted to express. It meant a lot to us that you included a passage of your own that you felt reflected the love that my husband and I feel for each other. It was a great ceremony and our guests also loved it!
Jacoba (Barber-Rozema) was the officiant for our wedding and we have nothing but great things to say about her. She was very professional and helpful in guiding us through the process. She was also very flexible by allowing us to fully customize the script and ceremony to make sure that it appropriately reflected us. We had our ceremony in French and English, and Jacoba was able to perfectly transition from one to the other. She was very comfortable and clear while feeling relaxed during the whole ceremony. This definitely helped make the experience as wonderful as it was. We received many compliments on the ceremony and have Jacoba to thank for that. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Jacoba Barber-Rozema was excellent. She helped us put together our ceremony so it was exactly as we wanted. She was very helpful before the ceremony in helping coordinate the music with our DJ, helped us through all the paperwork, and was very quick to respond to any questions. She showed up to the venue early and made sure everything would go smoothly. She was exactly what we wanted in an officiant. Thank you for everything Jacoba! Jeff & Jessica Aug 18th, 2018

I would just like to take the time to thank Jacoba (Barber-Rozema) for an extraordinary job. She maintained great contact throughout the entire process and made sure to inform us with all necessary documents and readings. As for the ceremony, just thinking of how beautiful it was brings tears to my eyes, it was above and beyond. She presented gorgeous quotes and added some German for my mother-in-law, which she adored! I can't thank Jacoba enough for how lovely her officiating was! Wishing you all the best.
