Ruth Hall ~ Serving Niagara, Hamilton, Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto and Brampton
I am a mother of 2 wonderful adult children, who loves celebrating life and love, and I am blessed to be a part of an amazing team, 'Cathy Davis and Company' that has created so much joy for me!
It is my passion to collaborate with you in designing a unique personal wedding tailored to your values, style and dreams, regardless of your religious or ethnic background. What I bring is being detail-oriented, kind, empathetic, compassionate, humorous, and an active listener who is genuinely caring.
I love seeing people happy, and enjoy music, board games, reading, writing and watching documentaries. Travelling is very appealing to me, and I particularly enjoy cruises and vacationing in the Caribbean and Hawaii. I am passionate about spending time with family and friends, plus advocating for, and encouraging those who are hurting and vulnerable. While I am confident and have Public Speaking experience in both church and non-church settings, I enjoy celebrating achievements both big and small, and I am also skilled in encouraging people during terminal illness, grief and bereavement.
My professional background includes a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology). I am a Certified Life Purpose, Forgiveness, and Relationship Coach who also provides Pre-Marital Counseling, as a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). This has given me the opportunity to inspire and encourage families and couples in their unique and challenging life stories.
Currently, I work with the Regional Municipality of Niagara (Social Assistance & Employment Opportunities division - SAEO) where I have supported individuals and families for 23 years as a Case Manager, won the SAEO Award for Innovation and the SAEO Award for Leadership. My desired goal is to make a positive impact in our community, by passing on the grace I have received over the years.
My inspiration to become ordained has increased over the years, as I successfully walk alongside singles and couples as their Life Coach, mentor and confidant, in Relationship Coaching. I realized that I do not need to stop at teaching and empowering them; I might as well marry the unmarried too! This is why I became a Licensed Wedding Officiant and a Member of (OAPWO) Ontario Association of Professional Wedding Officiants.
The great love I have for people started back in Uganda, where I was born in a very warm and caring family that accepted all people regardless of their faith or origin! There, it was all about “grace”, and this has carried my family through even after moving to Canada in 1986!
With deep excitement, I will be delighted and privileged to work with you and make your wedding day significantly memorable to you, your family and friends! I am available for post-honeymoon follow-up, and 6-months follow-up after your wedding, if you so desire. Thank you, looking forward to hearing from you.
Testimonials: We couldn’t have been happier with choosing Ruth as our efficient for our wedding ceremony. She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and confident with the ceremony. Instead of a ring exchange we did blessing of the hands. Her words were perfect for our relationship. We keep hearing amazing things about the ceremony from our friends and family. They all thought she did such an amazing job. We would definitely recommend Ruth for anyone who is looking for an Officiant. Thank you Ruth for making our day so special. Ash Sheppard-John
Our wedding was an amazing day filled with so much love!! Ruth (our officiant) was a big part of that. She had us very well prepared, incredibly comfortable and kept us on time so our program stayed on track. We couldn't have asked for more! Ruth took time to learn how to pronounce our names, engaged with our guests, and facilitated a ceremony that was equal parts contemporary and "church". My husband (lol I get to say that now) and I couldn't be happier. We absolutely recommend the services of Cathy Davis and Company! Zviko & Graham
"We recently booked Ruth Hall for our vow renewal ceremony at Balls Falls! We did a very small covid elopement last year, as soon as we were able too, we wanted to have a fabulous party to commemorate our marriage and vows which finally happened August 26 2022. The booking process with Cathy Davis was a breeze. She would let you know which officiants are available and you then could choose anyone to do a meet and greet before any bookings.
Ruth took the time to get to know us as a couple. She wanted to be able to tell our love story, which we were extremely grateful for because she told our story beautifully. I could not say enough good things and would recommend her to anyone needing an officiant." Thank you again for everything you did for us, we are very grateful you were a part of our special day and made it a very beautiful ceremony. Sincerely, Cassandra and Michael
‘We had the pleasure of having Ruth as our wedding officiant. She stepped in to help us when there was a scheduling conflict with another officiant and helped us to make the perfect wedding ceremony. Her calm and kind demeanor and impassioned delivery of our ceremony was appreciated by all. She truly made our ceremony so special. We also really enjoyed the Cathy Davis website to help us curate the perfect individualized wedding ceremony. Thank you Ruth!’
All the best! Jenna and David Jefferson
