About Marilyn Dion

Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant®

Serving Ontario, Canada

Choose your date, choose your location and choose to have the most unique ceremony your guests have ever witnessed! Your life milestone celebration will reflect your wishes, traditions and beliefs woven into a distinctively designed commemoration. Mark your memories and special moments in a meaningful way that touches hearts.

Weaving words and finding the common thread within differences is something I love to do as a celebrant.  Discovering the essence of the people being recognized in ceremony and reflecting that to their community is a privilege and an honor. With your input, I will use my expertise to create a beautiful customized ceremony and officiate on your special day. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how I can bring YOUR story to life.


I design and officiate at custom ceremonies including weddings, funerals, baby blessings, retirements and other special events.

A keepsake copy of the ceremony is included as my gift to you.
