Welcome to Ship & Shore Ceremonies

Operated by Sharon Wardle - Officiant

Sharon Wardle

Married over 30 years ago in Nottingham, England, I have a true meaning and feeling for marriage. It is a life commitment bringing two people in love together forever.

True Love is best explained by 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 – Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

I will always bring passion, dedication and enthusiasm to my ceremonies. We will work together to create a memorable wedding or renewal ceremony that individually reflect your spirit, energy and celebrate all those involved. One that will encompass your beliefs and touch the hearts of those you love. I will work closely with you; design a ceremony that uniquely expresses your personal vision for your wedding day that will be meaningful and treasured forever.

I am a Notary Public serving beautiful South Florida as a Wedding Officiator. I have served on the Board for the National Association of Wedding Professionals (NAWP) of the Palm Beach Chapter and continue to be active with the association. Whether you want a civil ceremony, one with poetry or special readings, with or without religious inclusions, non-denominational, family or religious traditions, I will work with you. I also provide rehearsal coordination.

My journey of life so far has taught me that special events stand out in our memories and mark special milestones in our lives. The lasting snapshots in our minds are the unions of two hearts, beginnings, transitions, and even endings. By commemorating these events, we capture our loves and our lives. Be passionate everyday and let the good life happen.

"A special thanks to Sharon for making our day so very special. From the very beginning, she was so helpful and sweet. She dedicated her time to explain what was needed in order for our ceremony to run smoothly. We were planning our wedding from out of state, so it was very stressful. However, having Sharon made me feel at ease. Our ceremony was exactly how I envisioned it and more much. Thank you Sharon for making things so perfect!"

"We were arranging our wedding from out of town, so communication was key. Sharon was prompt and knowledgeable in her responses. We wrote the entire ceremony-not just the vows-and she offered suggestions but remained flexible with that. She did a great job for us and we are really glad that we found her!"

"Sharon was the officiant at our destination wedding at the Hilton on Singer Island FL. She was wonderful to work with! We did most of our communications via email as I was in CT; she was prompt and thorough in her responses. Sharon also provided wonderful ideas for the ceremony. I couldn't have asked for anything better than our beachfront ceremony with Sharon officiating!"
