John Shore ~ SERVING Niagara, Hamilton, Haldimand & Norfolk Counties, and Burlington/Oakville

I was born and raised in St. Catharines and now enjoy living the dream on the shores of Lake Erie in Selkirk. I am married to my wife and soul-mate Thelma. Together we have 5 grown children who are all great friends and 3 grandchildren who are wonderful to be with…they truly are the sunshine of my life!  

I was a banker for over 20 years with a major Canadian bank specializing in Human Resources and Corporate Finance and as well, I have been involved in many business ventures since leaving the banking industry including consulting and executive coaching.  I retired early from active business however, I continued on as a Life Coach to many executives, motivating them to recognize their strengths and helping to inspire them to be better at what they do.

Because of my public speaking abilities, I began speaking at business luncheons and service clubs, later finding that my passion for serving and inspiring others could be channelled in other ways.  This led me to becoming ordained so that I could inspire couples.  I love meeting new people and enjoy the company of others and my sense of humour puts people at ease.  I am a devoted friend and compassionate listener.

"Hi John, Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks so much for your help on our wedding day.

You were a fantastic calming presence in the midst of all the chaos. We received all kinds of really nice feedback from our family and guests about you.  It was a really beautiful ceremony - thank-you for all your input and guidance.

Sincere thanks," Trevor and Carolyn

"Hi John, We can’t ever thank you enough for all you did for us on our day. You made Brooke smile, laugh, and relax in front of 100 people, which is among her biggest fears. You helped us to stay in the moment and to only have eyes for each other for all 18 minutes we were up there. I’m so happy we found you, you made it possible for us to have our wedding be OURS.  Best wishes with your next 40 weddings this summer, and thank you for the information below.  With love from Matt and Brooke.
