My name is Brenda Hamilton and I am a Humanist Officiant in Kingston, Ontario.
Since being licensed in 2013, I have gained a reputation for being professional, courteous, well spoken, organized and well dressed. I also have a very good sense of humour. I bring this attitude and sense of professionalism to all of my ceremonies. I understand the importance of your special day, and work hard to make your dream a reality.
A bit about me:
After a long and successful career with municipal government, I decided to take early retirement from my role as Director of Administrative Services/Township Clerk (also Acting CAO), with The Corporation of Loyalist Township. I found that the most rewarding part of my career was working with people and assisting residents. I felt a great way to continue this passion was to play a part in the happiest moments of peoples lives - their wedding.
During my municipal career, I was also a part-time instructor at St. Lawrence College - teaching Municipal Administration.
I am certified by The Ontario Humanist Society and licensed by The Province of Ontario to solemnize marriage ceremonies.
In 2016, I was voted "Best Officiant" for Southeastern Ontario and this was truly an honour for me.
In 2017, I was asked to be a Judge for the Southeastern Ontario Wedding Awards.
Outside of my work, I am happily married and have two wonderful, adult children. I enjoy travelling, gardening, walking in the woods, cycling and keeping fit.
As an animal lover, I enjoy the variety of wildlife around my home and support local animal welfare groups, such as:
