Welcome! My name’s Jake McArthur.


I’m delighted you’ve chosen to visit Collingwood Celebrancy. I relish the opportunity to meet your needs for a ceremony leading to and confirming your marriage or a ceremony acknowledging and celebrating the death of a loved one.

 I’m a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant ® which means I’ve taken extensive formal training in the creation and delivery of ritual and process relating to weddings and funerals and ceremonies in general.

I’m also registered with the Government of Ontario to legally offer and execute wedding services. I take the role of celebrant seriously. I see my primary role as one of creating safe space for all participants through developing trust, offering clear guidance during planning and preparation and officiating with professional competency and personal warmth.

 My greatest joy arises from customizing a celebration to fit the personalities and the wishes of those involved. However, I can create and perform simple, straightforward celebrations, which can also be lovely, poignant and appropriate.
