Rhona Segarra (she/her/hers)

My personal mission is to fill the world with love, one person at a time. And today, that starts with you! I look forward to getting to know you, hearing your love story and learning what matters most to you. I want to understand your dreams – both for your wedding day and for your life – and create a ceremony that is unique to who you are and what you love; a ceremony which you remember and treasure forever. 

I have always loved the joy, excitement and romance of weddings. From officiating a family vow at my brother’s wedding to creating a blessing ceremony at my own wedding, I’ve always felt that ceremonies should not be limited by a standardized, impersonal script. I want to create a ceremony that has deep meaning and tells your memorable story. I believe that every couple is unique and every couple deserves a beautiful and heartfelt wedding ceremony, officiated by a person who cares about people.

When I’m not officiating weddings, I work as a minister at Unity of New Westminster Spiritual Community. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors and dancing flamenco. I love travelling the world with my husband, who I have been married to since 2009. When we embarked on our marriage journey together, we trusted our love for one another and always promised to support each other as we learn and grow. Plus, he always makes the bed, which makes me happy! 

In marriage, my advice is to treat each other kindly, take time to respond rather than react, and create an emotionally safe space so you are free to be who you are. My parents were married 60 years and their advice was to always pay attention to the little things; small, everyday moments are your opportunity to show big consideration. 

My wish for you is that you treat your wedding ceremony as the beginning of a new phase in your lives. Your wedding can be a reflection of who you two are and what you value most. 

 

 

  • We eloped with young hip & married! Rhona was our officiant and we were so happy with our experience. She calmed our nerves and made us feel comfortable while exchanging our vows. Her words and delivery were heartfelt. Would definitely recommend booking Rhona!

  • We were so happy to have Rhona from YH&M as our officiant on our wedding day! We had many compliments from our friends and family on the lovely words she shared at our ceremony. Very easy to work with and an overall pleasant experience!

  • Oh my goodness, thank you so so much for Saturday. We are still glowing from the beautiful ceremony. Everyone always said how fast it would go by in a blur, but I remember every single moment. It was amazing. You were amazing from start to finish of the process. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone getting married!! Wishing you the best and sending our love & endless thanks.

  • We would like to thank you again for being such a good spirit about the rain and really being professional throughout the ceremony despite getting completely poured on. A lot of our guests commented on what a trooper you were! Mauricio and I agreed that you were the real heart of the day and kept us thinking about what was really important and not worried about the rain as much as we could have.

  • We found Young Hip & Married in 2021 when we were considering an elopement package. When 2022 rolled around and we decided to have an in-person wedding we decided to reach out to them again. And we’re so happy we did!

    Through YH&M we found both our wedding officiant, Rhona Segarra, and our wedding photographer, Clint Bargen. Both were absolutely the best! We met with them online first and decided to work together because our values really synced up with theirs.

    Rhona was very sweet and was totally prepared when the time came. She was able to keep us calm and grounded so that we could be present and enjoy the moment. Many of our guests commented that the words she chose were very moving. And that she smiled and seemed to really enjoy the ceremony.

    Clint takes wedding photography to a whole other level! Not only did he take beautiful pictures that captured the moment he also helped us through each moment throughout the day. He’s been to more weddings than we have and was a dedicated guide. We didn’t know how to do the ceremonial cake cutting and Clint took over and gave some simple instructions so we felt comfortable in front of our gather family and friends.

    If we had to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Our wedding ceremony was perfect! It was personalized to explain us as a couple, and really did just that. Rhona was fantastic! She made our experience very special, and was very helpful and easy to get a hold of. She was very thorough and we really felt that she had an accurate description of us as a couple. She contacted our friends and family for their input as well. We had our guests raving about the ceremony afterwards and how personal and loving it was. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! We highly recommend!

    Konnor & Jade
  • Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. We were so happy with your service and glad you were a part of our special day!!

    Rika & Hiroshi
  • Thank you so much for everything you helped us with, the warm vibes and…just everything. You made the process so easy for us and we definitely needed the help with everything else going on. We got so many comments on how thoughtful and genuine the ceremony was, and you were a huge part of that.

    Lisha & Richard
  • Rhona was an amazing officiant. She has such a loving and warm energy and was really easy to work with. She helped make our special day even more special! I do recommend going for the option with the rehearsal. It will make all the difference.

    Aldo & Kristal
  • Young Hip and Married made our elopement an amazing experience!! Through covid changes, snow storms and having to postpone multiple times, every step of the way was a breeze. They listened to what we wanted, got to know us and made our day so special. We had Rhona as our officiant and she was the sweetest, and Amber Leigh as our photographer and she had a great eye for detail!! We highly recommend YH&M and the photographer package, it made planning that much easier.

    Bobbi-Jo & Nathen
  • We were a little unsure of how the process would work when we signed up, but we were impressed with the level of service and care. All e-mails were answered promptly regarding any questions we had and when we found our officiant the process became even better. We chose Rhona based on her profile and after meeting via Zoom we could feel her warmth and that she genuinely wanted us to have the wedding ceremony of OUR dreams. She was very easy to work with, understanding and delivered a phenomenal ceremony. It felt like we knew her for years, our family and friends were extremely impressed by her words. I would recommend this website for anyone who is looking to get married. It’s very straightforward and easy to use.

    Having our wedding officiated by Rhona was the greatest! Rhona made the process so simple and every piece reflected who we are as a couple. During the ceremony I felt anchored by Rhona and my family was happily surprised that we found someone with such sweet energy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Matthew & Jazmine
  • Young Hip & Married is an amazing company to work with. We had Rhona as our officiant and we would not have had it any other way! She is so patient, calm and has a peaceful aura to her. Myself and my now husband highly recommend Rhona Segarra and using Young Hip & Married!

    Natalia & Leo
  • Rhona from Young Hip & Married put together an amazing ceremony for us. She took the time to get to know us and always kept in touch with us. Our families thought she did an amazing job with the ceremony. I felt like I knew Rhona very well before even meeting her face to face. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    Jenn & Scott
  • If you don’t choose Rhona as your wedding officiant then you may as well not get married 😊 We both met Rhona for the first time as we both walked down the aisle. We couldn’t be happier in the officiant that we chose with her. Her personal demeanour, and what she wrote in her profile: “We honor all people: all races, all creeds, all political ideologies, all abilities, all ages, all expressions of gender, sexuality and who we love.” Were the reasons why we chose her to wed us as we have a son who is gay and that is important to us. Love is love is love ! ❤️ Thank you Rhona for being an integral part of our special day. We couldn’t be happier ! We both highly recommend Rhona as an officiant in making your special day come to life.

    Thanks again Rhona and Clint! You were both exactly what we were looking for in making our day a special one.

  • The day was amazing! We had the best experience with Rhona; she was personable and kind. She had the sweetest and calmest voice. We had to make a quick change and she was able to do so in a short time, very accommodating. Thank you so much Rhona and to the team at Young Hip & Married! 🙂

  • When I was first looking for an officiant, I had a lot of concerns. I’m a non-traditional bride and our wedding was so diverse that I was worried that I would have a super traditional and rigid officiant. My husband and I found YH&M through looking up online reviews and we were really drawn to the fact that we could customize the ceremony. They were so responsive once we filled in the information form. We got to meet our officiant before making any commitments as well.

    Our officiant was Rhona and she was absolutely amazing!! Her energy matched my partner and I so well. She was so helpful and responsive when we emailed her with questions. Having her at our rehearsal made everything run so smoothly on the day. We asked her for a very sweet ceremony with some humour and she absolutely delivered! The ceremony was absolutely the highlight of the wedding. All of our friends and family thought she was great!

    Lastly, the vow writing course was so helpful for organizing what we wanted to say to each other 🙂

    Shaira & De'voreaux
  • These guys were amazing from the start. Very professional and accommodating when we changed our location. Our officiant, Rhona, was so lovely and really helped to make our wedding a great day. I’m so impressed with how professional this company is.

    These guys were amazing from start to finish. Thank you!

    Michelle & Glen
  • Having Young Hip & Married officiate our elopement was extremely easy and fun. Rhona, our officiant, was great! She’s very kind and sincere and Mark and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. We are very happy we chose Young Hip & Married to be part of our special day! Thank you once again!

    Nicole & Mark
  • Well…what to say about this lovely company but more specifically Rhona??? They are absolutely amazing! Their professionalism is top notch.

    Our first meeting with Rhona was via Zoom. She came with a great and genuine spirit which immediately put us at ease. She was so real and walked us through what that part of the evening might look like. She followed up with so much support material around writing your own vows or choosing an already curated one.

    Thank you Young Hip and Married for sharing Rhona with us!

    Rhona, it was such a wonderful wedding and you will always be a part of it. We can’t thank you enough for your calmness and professionalism. We will never forget you.

    Adanma & Peter
  • We worked with Rhona and she was amazing! Very responsive, flexible with what we were hoping for our ceremony and just overall a lovely person. Would definitely recommend!

    Samara & Anders
  • My experience with Young Hip & Married was beyond amazing. They provided me with everything I needed. Our officiant Rhona is one of the most beautiful souls. She was so dedicated to making our day unique and special; we felt supported and like our wedding and ideas mattered. Amber Leigh was our photographer and we had such an amazing experience with her. She had us laughing, and caught some of our most special moments. I would highly recommended these two to anyone looking to make their wedding day special.

    Ashley & Sara
  • We had the pleasure to meet with Rhona from Young Hip & Married. She was fabulous. Really contributed to making our wedding day special. We had many compliments from our guests about her, how personal she made the ceremony and how pleasant she was. Would highly recommend Rhona.

  • I manage the Princess and the Pea Hotel in Langley BC and had the pleasure of meeting Rhona, who officiated a recent wedding here. Professional, kind, and her grounded presence made this ceremony absolutely magical. I highly recommend her.

    Ange
  • Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. You truly made our ceremony special and exceeded all expectations! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant to share this moment with.

    Abigail & Jan Michael
  • We had such a fabulous experience working with Rhona from Young Hip and Married. We had a bit of a different request as we wanted a dear friend of ours to perform the ceremony. Rhona was nothing but supportive and helpful through the whole process. She provided all we needed to have a successful ceremony and was full of warmth and support the whole way through. Her presence on the big day was a calming one for us, and our friend who was marrying us – we couldn’t have asked for better 💕 With Rhona, you can’t go wrong! Thank you so so much.
    Melissa & Kevin
  • Rhona, thank you for officiating our wedding. It was a great day and the ceremony was perfect. We received a lot of compliments on how the ceremony was done, and I couldn’t be happier with how it went.

    Crystal & Bruce
  • Our experience with this company was nothing short of amazing. They are very prompt and selected an officiant that worked perfectly for us. Rhona was amazing and we do not have enough nice things to say! She was so helpful in each part of planning and preparing our perfect ceremony. My husband and I were nervous about writing our own vows and Rhona helped us create a very special and meaningful ceremony and vows and we could not be more appreciative. I would highly recommend for anyone planning a wedding! Thanks again!

    Anne & Duncan
  • They made the whole process very seamless. Always contactable and had great contacts for vendors to complete our day.

    Rod & Jessica
  • Working with YH&M was a wonderful (and easy) experience from start to finish! Rhona was just SO lovely to have marrying us, her warmth and genuine love of LOVE really added something special to the day!

  • We just wanted to reach out and thank you so much for a wonderful day. You were fantastic and we really appreciate you taking the time to come out and marry us. Your words were perfect and we are so thankful for your energy on the day.
    Nikki & Stefan
  • We were married by Rhona on a cold and rainy day in May. She was wonderful; calm, competent and so kind. She delivered a beautiful and well-paced ceremony. If we ever renew our vows we will definitely ask Rhona to be the officiant again!
