My name is Carollyne Rayner and I have had the privilege of being an Alberta Marriage Commissioner since 1998, officiating at wedding ceremonies in Calgary, and the surrounding areas of Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, Strathmore, Okotoks and High River. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with thousands of engaged couples like yourselves. I love being able to help each one of you to create a unique and one of a kind wedding experience that is specifically suited to you both. As I like to say, we want your ceremony to “tell your story”!
My role as a wedding officiant is to guide you through the wedding ceremony process. For many of you, this will all be brand new, but don’t worry! My expertise is there to help you personalize your ceremony and make sure you have everything you need. I have a vast amount of knowledge in regards to unique wedding ceremony traditions, special readings, and other ideas to design a ceremony that is customized exclusively for the two of you.
Whether this is your first time getting married, or an opportunity to renew your vows, your love story is something worth celebrating. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to be part of it!
“Hi Carollyne! We just wanted to thank you again for working with us and making our day so magical. We couldn’t have asked for a better marriage commissioner, weather and decorations. Everything went so smoothly and we appreciate everything you did to help make it that way!!! Oh by the way, my parent said you were fantastic…. You are extremely good at what you do!”Allen & Ron
Your wedding ceremony is one of the most important events in your life! Let’s take a look at some of the “need to know” facts and ways we can work together to design a celebration that represents the two of you.
Renewal of Vows
Marriage is a commitment worth celebrating! Over the years you’ve created beautiful memories, weathered storms, and pursued your dreams as a family. Allow me to help you find a meaningful way to express your love and design a special ceremony exclusively for you.
Baby Naming Ceremony
There are few joys in life as momentous as the arrival of son or a daughter! It would be my honour to work with you and design a ceremony to celebrate your new arrival and welcome them to the world as part of your family.
