Call:  604.314.2946

Janis Horne first got the idea (brainwave, really!) of becoming a Celebrant at her own son’s wedding.  It struck her as an opportunity to bring together everything that she valued most about her career in post-secondary education – meeting new people, forming relationships, public speaking, and writing –  in a way that is deeply personal and that serves an unmet need in the lives of people today.  To Janis, being a Celebrant is truly “heart work”, and she treasures this way of connecting with people.  After completing her Wedding Celebrant training with the Celebrant Institute in New Jersey in   She has also completed The Gay Wedding Institute Certification Course; and is an active member of Toastmasters International.

Contemporary Ceremonies

Vancouver, BC

Call: 778.997.1318

The question I often get asked is: What do you believe?

I believe that every person should have the option to marry someone they love using language, symbols and rituals that reflect their personalities. I believe there are contemporary approaches to honour family, spiritual or religious values. I believe that together we can create a ceremony that expresses the essence and the glory of the commitment of one human being to another.

If you believe that your special day deserves more than décor to create a lasting memory, let’s sit down and discuss the possibilities.  Whether, you are thinking of a short and sweet ceremony or a more detailed wedding it is all about your truth, your style.
