“I don’t do weddings in the air or under the sea.. it is too hard to hear and a bit scary for me.”

Head shot of Bridget Strudwick

My name is Bridget Strudwick.  I currently am living back on the Iron Range where I grew up.  I have been a Minister since 2002.  I was raised Catholic.  I got my BA in Religious Studies from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN.  I felt a calling to do more for people than the Catholic church would allow me to do.  I pursued my faith further and became a Non-Denominational Minister.  I find that in having studied all Religions in college helps me to have a better understanding of people’s religious beliefs.   Being raised Catholic, I still have those roots deeply implanted.  I am very easy going.  I will hopefully feel like an old shoe.  I am a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of person.  There is no hidden agenda with me.  I will not try to convert you to my way of thinking or to my church.  As I do not have church for you to attend.  I go where people need me.




  1. Do you require pre-marital counseling?
    No. I do offer pre-marital counseling for those who want it, but it is totally voluntary.
  2. Do you have a church building in which we can get married?
    No. I do not have a church, but I can certainly recommend churches and other places for you to consider holding your wedding.
  3. Do we have to have a rehearsal?
    No. I do not need a rehearsal to officiate a wonderful wedding for you. If it would make you and/or your wedding party and family more comfortable to have a rehearsal, I do offer one.
  4. If you officiate our rehearsal, do you also attend the rehearsal dinner afterward?
    No. I take that time to finalize your ceremony.
  5. Do you attend the wedding reception?
    No, I leave you to enjoy your day and thank you for the invite.
