About Aileen

Our Celebrant and Wedding Officiant

Aileen Dockerty was born and educated in Manchester, England and consequently an avid fan of Manchester United and the Lancashire County Cricket Club. Aileen has lived in Durham Region for more than 20 years and before that in the hub of Toronto. With a background in legal work, Aileen honed her writing skills into soulful, meaningful celebrant wedding, wedding officiant, funeral and baby naming ceremonies.

Aileen Dockerty is a Funeral and Family Celebrant, certified by the United Kingdom Society of Celebrants, and marriage officiant licensed by the Government of Ontario under the Marriage Act.

As a Funeral and Family Celebrant, Aileen will write and create a ceremony which will be fitting, bespoke and heartfelt; a ceremony crafted in collaboration with wonderful people undergoing a significant life change.

During our lives, we experience difficult times as well as joyous milestones. Each life event can be marked and celebrated with a perfect ceremonial experience created for you or for your loved one.

Every life is unique. We do not all travel on the same path. Therefore, a ceremony celebrating a life, marriage, new baby or another rite of passage should be as unique as the individuals involved.

Aileen will explore ways of making the service as meaningful and as personalized as possible. As a result, a distinctive and special wedding or funeral ceremony will be produced, rather than a standard ceremony with interchangeable names.

Your ceremony will be remembered for years to come and the Celebrant difference will speak for itself. Aileen is a Minister with the Canadian International Metaphysical Ministry.

Testimonials

Thoughts From Our Clients

"Aileen officiated our wedding and it was a wonderful experience. I was actually quite nervous about the ceremony, but she really helped to reassure me and make it a fun and relaxed event. She met with us in advance and made an effort to get to know both of us and really understand what type of ceremony we wanted. She also came up with several suggestions for wording and then worked with us to help us come up with a ceremony that suited our needs. For the ceremony she showed up in advance and was obviously very well prepared. She also has such a lovely manner that she fit right in to our very small and intimate ceremony! We both would highly recommend Aileen anytime!!"

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide you with a ceremony to fit your needs, to encompass your beliefs and those of your family and loved ones.

We will work with you throughout to ensure that your ceremony is reflective of your personal journey, fulfilling your emotional needs.

The Celebrant Difference

Celebrancy is in its infancy in Ontario, however, in British Columbia there are many celebrants operating businesses. Celebrancy is extremely popular in the rest of the English speaking world including the United States, United Kingdom, New Zealand and the place it all started, Australia.

The Basic Idea

Celebrants do not use pre-set ceremonies.

All ceremonies are custom written from start to end, we do not do "cookie cutter" ceremonies.
