Professional, Fun and Caring
I am a people person, a proud mother of a son and enjoy my hobbies. You will either find me hiking trails, riding my horse down country roads or sewing colourful quilts for family and friends.
I launched my wedding career in 1995 with Sharon Barwick Designs as a florist and event decorator. I have been producing weddings and events in Calgary since 2004. Passionate about mentoring young people, I am a Mount Royal University instructor for Wedding Planning and the Event Management program. As a Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP) and trained actress, I am an ideas enthusiast who believes education and ceremonies should be meaningful and entertaining. I am also an International Examiner for the CSEP designation and former National Education Chair for the International Live Events Association (ILEA)
I have served hundreds of couples from all cultures, beliefs and backgrounds, regardless of sexual orientation or tradition. I am passionate about being a supportive marriage commissioner that creates memorable ceremonies. I deliver ceremonies with heart and am respectful of the undertaking of writing your love story.
