FAY VANDENBEUKEL ~ Serving Niagara, Hamilton, Burlington
I believe it’s important to celebrate the milestones in life. Events such as marriage, the birth of a child and the passing of a loved one are the things that help define our lives and who we are. This is why I love what I do!! I have the privilege and honour of being a part of these occasions in the lives of those we serve. I enjoy meeting people, hearing their stories and helping bring something unique and meaningful to these life events.
I feel fortunate to have celebrated many such occasions in my own life. Garry and I have been married for over 40 years. We met as teenagers and together we raised our two children Geoffrey and Krista. Family has always been the centre of our lives. Now, we are proud and doting grandparents to Jacob and Annaleigh who bring us such joy! Recently, our grand-dog Marvin (a100 pound Bernedoodle) joined the family and he is a wonderful addition.
Besides family, learning new things has always been important to me. Garry and I supported each other as we went back to school and trained to become elementary school educators. Being a teacher and principal was more than a job. It was a career that spanned over 20 years. When I retired from education, I knew that I wanted to do something where I could be a positive influence and continue learning new things and meeting interesting people. I enjoy public speaking and communicating with people. Joining Celebrating Life Ministries and Cathy Davis and Company allows me to use this skill set.
For me it is the best of both worlds: time in the working world connecting with interesting people, with leisure time to enjoy golf, skiing, travel, cooking, concerts and theatre.
I look forward to celebrating life’s milestones with you!

“My husband and I were recently married by Fay Vandenbeukel. Upon meeting with Fay, I instantly knew she was meant to marry us- she was an educator (she was the principal of the school I was currently teaching at) and shares our to-be anniversary date (yay August 11th!). From start to finish, our ceremony was beautiful - our meaningful moment that she created told our love story perfectly. Building the ceremony using the website was a breeze, and made our experience stress free. We would highly recommend Cathy Davis and Co and Fay. Thank you Fay!” Amy and Aaron – August 11th, 2018

“Hi Fay, We wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony you put together. You truly caught the essence of what makes our relationship work and gave us a motivational moment we'll be able to take forward in good and bad times. We truly appreciate that you gave us the ceremony we were looking for.
Thank you again for all your hard-work, dedication and patience with us, we are truly thankful!” Ludmila and Nicolaas- November 9th, 2018
“My husband and I wanted to have a very personal and unique ceremony. Fay took extra care and time to work with us in making sure that we had all the elements we wanted and needed for our magical day. For example, we included a smudge ceremony at the beginning, our mothers in a sand ceremony (on the beach), musical contributions by family/friends and a balloon releasing to conclude. Fay was both very positive and creative, while maintained the utmost professional approach. Fay was so open-minded to our ideas, including having our dog, Raffy be a part of the wedding as well. She never made us feel like our ideas didn't matter and when the day came, she was so calm, articulate and warm that all of our guests commented on how special the ceremony was because she was a part of it. We will never be able to thank Fay enough for her support and excitement she brought to our planning and to the event itself. She truly made our dreams come to life for us in a way that we will never forget!” Robyn & Tim Scheubel
