Santina was recently voted the ‘Most Popular New Officiant in BC’ at the prestigious Wedding Industry Experts 2015 Awards. Having conducted wedding ceremonies since 2002, I bring a rich life experience and much enthusiasm to my role as a wedding officiant having the privilege of uniting hundreds of couples. In selecting me as your officiant you will have the full benefit of those experiences and abilities when helping you to compose a unique and truly special ceremony that will make your wedding day unforgettable; whether it is combining traditions from different cultures or simply wanting to ‘make it your own'. In addition to being a published author, I have ample experience in public speaking including addressing professional groups, speaking at conferences and providing training; which means I will be at ease with any size wedding you may have! I'm also a professional artist whose abstract works can be found in collections around the world including Japan, Australia, England and across N. America. I hope you allow me to share my vision, creativity and ideas with you as together we build a ceremony that speaks to the uniqueness of you as a couple.Request Santina Kerslake

Dear Santina, Christy and I wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. You helped to make it such a memorable day for both of us. Thanks again,
Hello there Santina!!! ... Everything went off perfectly and according to plan, your personable touch made it truly complete!! As this day will be etched in our hearts and souls for the rest of our lives, we want to let you know that you brought our ceremony to that spiritual place we wanted it to go... simply by being you! Your gentleness, passion, confidence and organization were invaluable to us!! Wow!!
Santina, Just wanted to pass along our thanks for performing a great ceremony and helping to make the day special. Many of the guests said they had never been to a more beautiful wedding. Thanks again.
Hi Santina! Thanks again for being part of our special, happy, day. Our friends have inquired many times "How did you find such a cool person to marry you?", so you must have looked pretty happy that day, too!
Dear Santina, Our day was absolutely perfect, and you certainly played an important part of making it so! A huge thanks to you! The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful, and we're so happy you were the one to deliver it.
Hello Santina, Our day was fantastic! Thank you for giving such a beautiful ceremony! Everything went well and we are very happy with that! It was important for me to have my dad involved (especially since it wasn't a religious ceremony in a church) but he was very pleased with the whole affair. Take care,
We were so happy with the ceremony. Your warmth and friendliness made a special occasion more special. Your help in designing the ceremony was invaluable to making it a memorable event. Again, many, many thanks!
At the planning meeting I gave her an idea of what type of people Luke and myself are and basically left things in her hands. She asked me questions about our relationship and about our plans, and about us as people. I gave her our vows and the words that Luke wrote for the exchanging of the rings and she put together a wonderful intro, outro and some other words. We were complimented on the ceremony all night by our family and friends. I thought that she was serious, but light hearted enough to make it fun and enjoyable (and to calm our nerves!). She guided us through the ceremony as we needed it and included our guests by speaking with them and inviting them to say "we do". I think she did a great job and am not only impressed by her talent as a minister but by her as a person.
Hello Santina, We had a more relaxing, comfortable, warm ceremony than either of us could have imagined. That is because of you, and we thank you from the bottom of hearts. Our children felt included, our family felt close and it was absolutely perfect. We won't hesitate to recommend you in the future. You were delightful! Our biggest regret was that you couldn't stay and enjoy the champagne and the party! Take good care, we hope our paths cross again!
Hi Santina, Thanks again for the wonderful ceremony! Everything went very smoothly as a result of your direction and expertise. As you know, I could not stop smiling the whole time! We received many positive comments from our guests regarding your warmth and the manner in which you conducted the ceremony. Your smiles in our pictures say it all! We really lucked out with a great officiant! Thanks for helping to make our day truly memorable.
Hi Santina, Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding ceremony. The day was perfect! It was exactly what we wanted!
