Four Seasons Celebrations

An Award Winning Wedding Officiant, Rev. Mary McCandless, delights in helping you create a memorable wedding ceremony that captures the true essence of your commitment to each other.

An open and engaging personality, Rev. McCandless exudes caring, warmth and a sense of calm, welcome at any wedding celebration and is perfectly comfortable performing all kinds of weddings, for all kinds of couples, including same sex, inter-faith or multi-cultural. "All you need is love."

Wedding ceremonies are as different as the couples celebrating. Rev. Mary listens and hears your unique wants and needs and strives to make every celebration perfect for those involved.

Whether you are considering elopement, a Civil ceremony, a "Keep it Simple" small wedding or a Cheap & Cheerful celebration in your Grandmother's living room or backyard, a traditional Church, Non-Denomination or Spiritual wedding, through her gentle and welcoming presence, she brings a sense of spirituality and joy to every service. Your wedding should be exactly what you want it to be.

Want to invite a family member or friend to participate or conduct the ceremony? Rev. Mary will assist you in making this memorable "for the right reasons" and legal. Want to get married in Aruba? She will happily provide you with a Pre or Post Destination Wedding Ceremony. If you want to get married in Hawaii, she will probably go with you.

If you are planning a Destination Wedding here in Ontario, Skype is an excellent way to prepare for your wedding. Couples from across the pond have found confidence and reassurance that their wedding will be exactly what they want it to be, reflecting their personal views.

Commitment ceremonies or Vow Renewal ceremonies, which require no legal documents, can happen just as easily under Reverend Mary's guidance and will still be heart-felt and meaningful.

Many people now are looking for a more personal and customized approach to sharing important experiences. Smaller, more intimate wedding services shared with very special family and friends are becoming more and more common.

Under the direction of Rev. Mary McCandless, Four Seasons Celebrations now offers a well-appointed space for intimate gatherings or events at The Manse. Located in the Heritage District of Central Cobourg, The Manse is a lovely Georgian home ideal for special, intimate occasions and celebrations. Inside or out, it's perfect for those who are looking for something a bit different or unique.

"Despite all of our differences, love is what we all share. It's the great unifier, our one universal truth. No matter who you are, where you've come from, what you believe, I know this one thing to be true: love is what you're doing right. Be proud of your love and hold on to what brings you joy."

Samantha and MatthewMary McCandless has a loving energy that emanates from her and envelopes those around her. We were looking for someone with a soft approach, someone who would listen to our needs and someone to calm our nerves the day of the wedding! Mary did all of these things and more. We would recommend Mary to any couple, especially those who appreciate the power and rareness of divine spiritual connection.

Marsha & PaulMary was a *dream* wedding officiant. She oozes warmth, from the first time we spoke to her, it felt as if she was an old family friend! At the ceremony, she managed to tread perfectly the line between doing everything we asked of her, adding in touches that we absolutely loved - as did our guests, whom she managed to make both laugh and cry! I really can't recommend her highly enough.  We feel so lucky to have had her there on our special day - she made it more special than we could have hoped for.
