Hi, My name is Maren.

I am the face behind Bow Valley Weddings. I love Love and I love making big things happen.
In my first year in the industry working for a big venue here in Canmore I hosted a gruelling 34 weddings and 6 elopements. It's safe to say that I learned a lot.
Now a lot more seasoned, I proudly call myself an expert dress fluffer, can arrange centrepieces like a pro and will be just as excited as you when I find you a good deal.

Originally from Germany, Canada has been my part-time home since 2017 when I met my Canadian boyfriend whilst travelling around Spain. When covid hit, I took the last flight in to Canada to be with my love and arrived an hour and a half before the borders shut. The rest is history.
Canmore has been my home ever since and I deeply love the epic mountain scapes that surround us and the outdoor life that they offer. (Though I could do with fewer -30C days..)

I believe in dreaming big, having fun and taking risks, which is how we got here in the first place. With loads of experience under my belt, I can provide you with the necessary insider knowledge to make your dream wedding become a reality.

My favourite part of each wedding are the speeches. I love getting to know my couples through their loved ones. I enjoy working with flowers and am a firm believer that all that you really need for your wedding decor are some candles, a few bud vases of flowers and some printed items such as menus and programs that match your colour scheme. Weddings don't need to be all complicated and fussy.

I am thoughtful and understanding and won't pressure or upsell you. I promise to honour your vision, preferences and budget. I am calm and personable and good with people. I will be there for you every step of the way to vent, hold your hand and - most importantly - celebrate.

Your ceremony should be as unique as you are.
