Joan Godden, BA (Western)

I am a grandmother, musician, community volunteer and outdoor enthusiast. I care deeply about helping you create a perfect day with a very personal wedding ceremony that will become a treasured memory. Do you want a solemn and dignified ceremony? Or something a little more relaxed and casual? Are you planning a full service wedding, an elopement, LGBTQ+, sacred, multi-cultural or a spiritual ceremony that tugs at your heart strings? I honour all traditions. Are you hoping for that perfect beach, garden, hall or cottage wedding? I can help with that! I offer you an atmosphere of patience, tolerance and good humour. As an Appointed Designated Minister with Clergy Support Memorial Church, it would be my pleasure to celebrate your life event and help create lifelong memories for both of you! I offer a wealth of experience and support in the Grey/Bruce region. Reach out to me knowing that you will be well cared for on your special day.

Joan is an absolutely amazing person and officiant. She was exceptional in helping us throughout the planning process and then carried out her duties in such a beautiful way, making the ceremony so special. She has made a great impact in our lives and I strongly recommend her services to others. Very happy and satisfied with the whole process.

Joan Godden is an amazing woman. She was so intuitive that she presented us with the perfect ceremony to suit the two of us perfectly. She knew and was very receptive to what we needed to make our special day absolutely perfect! We can never convey how glad we were to have Joan to be the one to join us together forever!!
