Who am I

My name is Barry Gibson.  I am proud to be an Alberta Marriage Commissioner appointed in 2015 for the town of Stony Plain and area.


My wife and I moved to the town of Stony Plain in 1978.  We raised two children in the community.

Prior to this appointment, I was a school teacher for 37 years with Parkland School Division #70. Teaching has in many ways prepared me for the role of Alberta Marriage Commissioner. Skills such as finding joy, listening, assisting in the meeting of goals, planning and organizing, and directing an event-- large or small-- are a part of both my chosen professions.


In my mind, your wedding is not about me. It is about two people and their hopes and dreams for their special day as they begin their life together.  My goal is to make this occasion one which will be a treasured memory and the beginning of a lifetime partnership. Contact me and we will work together to make your day one that you will cherish.

Barry Gibson, Alberta Authorized Wedding Commissioner, #6858
