Every love story is unique. 

 

I’m Karla Combres, a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant and marriage commissioner based in Saskatoon, cANADA. I am committed to crafting and officiating A personalized ceremony to celebrate and honour your love story with joy and meaning!


Your ceremony should be as unique as your love story. That is why, as your celebrant and officiant, I don’t use templates, and I don’t fill in any blanks.

Making a declaration of love and commitment is a momentous occasion. It is a rite of passage to be acknowledged with reflection and intention. My process for creating a personalized, meaningful ceremony gives you the opportunity to slow down and reflect on your journey as individuals and as a couple. How did you first meet and fall in love? What do you love about your partner that makes you want to spend the rest of your lives together? What are your hopes and dreams for the future? How can we honour your story, your family, your history?

Every aspect of your ceremony is custom-crafted. Inspired by an in-depth interview and signature reflective exercise with you, I research, write and suggest possible vows, readings, music, rituals, and ways to include special family members and friends. I listen to what you want and what you don’t want. Your ceremony can be as simple or elaborate, traditional or unconventional, serious or playful as you want it to be.

Drawing on my specialized training in ceremony creation and rituals, I then weave together a ceremony that reflects your personalities, love story, spiritual beliefs or non-beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and values. I collaborate closely with you to create a ceremony that is authentic and unique. Of course, you always have final approval of your ceremony.

It’s lovely to think back on our wedding day in September. For Ron and I, it was perfect in every way. We must credit Karla for this as she worked very hard. She elicited our stories, how we met, and the like using a questionnaire. Then taking many of our words and our ideas, she shaped a wonderful ceremony. There were lots of emails - about the wording, the timing, the music and most importantly the people. She wanted to make sure we were entirely comfortable. This lovely woman is a heartfelt presence. Our guests were smitten as well.
