The Kettle Creek Weddings Story:

Kettle Creek Weddings (KCW) was founded by Rosanne and Wayne Prevett in 1998. Prior to founding KCW, Rosanne and Wayne spent 6 years offering humanitarian assistance in the city of St Thomas where they live. After 6 years of life-changing service providing free weekly meals, a lunch program for children, a very successful community co-op, and so much more their focus began to change from meeting physical needs to also providing service to people who were in need of someone to officiate their common rites of passage. Although they had been officiating wedding ceremonies for over 20 years, in 2003 they decided to commit themselves to making this a full time venture and performed 187 weddings that first year alone.

Since it's inception Kettle Creek Weddings has expanded into other regions, trained and developed new team members, opened offices in major Canadian Regions and can boast a world class web site. In the last seven years, Wayne and Rosanne along with their team of associates have performed over 2500 weddings.



Our Executive Team:

Over the past few years we (Rosanne and Wayne) have had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing people. In June 2010 we approached two like minded couples who have been working with us, to help us form a new Executive Team and restructure our company to better prepare and build for the future. The Executive Team is made up of Wayne and Rosanne Prevett, Trish and Martti Pajunen, and Ken and Patti Lofgren and our Head Office administrator & Booking Specialist, Kristen Little. Our Foundation Team brings to KCW a solid base of expertise and professionalism that is unmatched by any other officiant company in North America. Each member of the Executive Team is full time and available to assist in any way we can to ensure that your wedding day experience is beyond your expectations. You can learn more about our Executive Team by visiting our executive team page.



Our Reputation:

We are the most sought after wedding Officiants in Ontario. We believe the entire planning and ceremony experience with us is amazing and unmatched by anyone else in the industry. We are told this over and over again by many couples, as well as by many professionals who see us in action each week. If you are looking for a ceremony experience that can literally change lives, we are your choice. Read what some of the wedding professionals have to say.



Our Philosophy:

We believe that the most important part of the wedding day is the ceremony, yet all too often the ceremony is "tolerated" so that everyone can get on with the party. We do not share this same philosophy and are committed to bringing life back to the ceremony. We are committed to your wedding ceremony being a great success. We want it to be a memorable experience for all present, and we know it will be talked about for weeks and months to come. We will work with you to customize the ceremony to meet your needs and to ensure your wedding day will be one you will always remember. Read some of our testimonials.



Our Associate Team:

Our team of Wedding Officiants is second to none! Each of our associates is hand picked and then extensively trained to the highest possible standards. With the Ceremony being the most important part of your wedding day, your choice of Officiant needs to be given very careful consideration. See our team



Booking Your Wedding:

Call Kristen Little our Booking Specialist, and she will check our availability and arrange a time for you to meet with one of our team to discuss your ceremony. At the consultation one of our trained officiants will walk you through our one-of-a-kind ceremony planning guide, offer suggestions for the exchange of vows and rings, as well as suggestions for other parts of the ceremony. The officiant that you meet with for your initial consultation will be the person who will perform your ceremony; you do not meet one officiant and then have a different one perform your ceremony. A deposit will guarantee the time and date for your wedding. See How to book your ceremony.



Our Foundation:

The foundation of all we do at Kettle Creek Weddings is our passion to see lives transformed. We are convinced from our own relationship that marriage can and should be the greatest thing going. To that end we are committed to investing into each couples lives. Kettle Creek Weddings is based on the same principles and practices of our not-for profit incorporated religious charity called Celebrating Life. We know that many people who do not have a faith community are in need of an ordained Minister (Officiant) to perform their wedding ceremony, because in Ontario there are no marriage commissionaires to do this as there are in other provinces. We are ordained ministers who are licensed to perform wedding ceremonies through government recognized denominations. We started Celebrating Life in 2000, and its purpose is to help people celebrate and navigate life's most significant transitions, such as weddings, funerals, baby dedications, marriage counseling and many other family life issues. Over the past few years we have assisted thousands of families and couples Celebrate Life. Read less

We had Brad Lehman as our officiant from Kettle creek and he was great! Spoke extremely clear everyone would hear him... his motivation speech is something we will always remember. Had a great talk with him before the wedding to go over the ceremony so both my husband and I were extremely comfortable and happy with how the service was going to go. We have received so many compliments how great he was and how much everyone loved our ceremony.

We hired Don Baker to officiate our wedding. I feel bad posting a bad review because he was a nice guy, but thinking back to our wedding almost 2 months ago, the ceremony still upsets me. He seemed extremely nervous and flustered. Spoke quickly and it felt rushed. After walking down the aisle, he began the ceremony, said opening words and prayer and it was the longest time that everyone was still standing. I had to ask him to ask people to be seated, because he forgot that part and didn't notice. The ceremony was mostly a blur to me, but all of my friends comments about my wedding after the day were about how the officiant wasn't good. Several photographer friends of mine who shoot weddings every weekend here in London said they've never even seen him officiate before and were shocked that he came from Kettle Creek. We trusted that it would be good based on Kettle Creek's reputation but it just didn't go as we expected. My advice is to just make sure you feel 100% comfortable with your officiant before going ahead with the booking.

Trish made sure that our ceremony was romantic and unforgettable! She led us through our vows with a gentle confidence and made us remember the happiness and love that brought us there. Trish gracefully speaks to the tenderness of relationship. So many of our guests commented on how lovely her service was. We are sooo happy that we got Trish! I always thought I wanted a male officiant but was open minded when we booked with Kettle Creek. After working with Trish I would highly recommend having a woman officiant and if your fortunate you'll get Trish! Thank you for all the little extras, you went out of your way for us!!

Martti of Kettle Creek Weddings was amazing!! He took the time to meet with us prior to the wedding (there was an additional fee for this, but we through it was worth it for us all to get to know each other), answer our questions, walk us through the day and spent some time getting to know us as a couple.

He called us again just before the wedding to ensure we were all on the same page.

He made our ceremony, casual, professional, witty, emotional, intimate and classy all at the same time. We have compliment after compliment on what a nice ceremony we had.

I would not hesitate to recommend Martti to any bridge!

I was very happy with their officiant services. John was excellent and very professional to work with. He kept everything running smoothly and I did not need a wedding planner for the ceremony because of him. Great work from this company though I find the whole industry very expensive for a 20 minute ceremony but this seems to be typical.

She was helpful through the planning process, answering any questions we had and was always prompt with replies to our emails. She did an incredible job at the ceremony!

Thank you so much for making our day as special as it was!

First off, I have to say I think our officiant Wayne was the most talked about thing at our wedding!

When we first met with Wayne, we knew he was the perfect officiant for us - he was extremely personable, funny, and professional. We talked about ourselves and he totally got what we were looking for as a couple in regards to our ceremony.

When the day came Wayne shone. Not only did he sit with me backstage (for lack of a better word) and help keep me calm, but he made all of our guests a welcome part of the ceremony, and delivered our readings brilliantly.

After it was done I didn't even see him slip away - too bad, because I really wanted to give him a hug for such a well done job. We had people not only from Toronto, but from Florida and even the UK ask if we thought he'd be willing to travel to do their wedding!

Ivan Arneill from Kettle Creek Weddings is just exceptional. He married our best friends two years ago and we had the pleasure of seeing him perform a ceremony at that time. We were so happy he was available for our wedding! He made it personal and touching, he was easy to hear, engaging to watch, didn't detract from it being about us, and spoke about us like he knew us as a couple. He was just perfect. He accommodated all the nutty family stuff at the rehearsal, came early, dressed nicely, and was a genuine joy to have as part of our special day. We are so grateful to have had him!

The Officiant was there in plenty of time before to double check everything and and make sure things were all set and then had plenty of time to come check on me and the bridesmaids and make sure we were calm and on the same page as him. Every single one of our guests came up to us after the ceremony and told us that it was the best ceremony they have ever seen, it was completely different then the norm and inspiring. I will continue recommending KCW to everyone I talk to!

Kettle Creek Weddings was an excellent company to work with! Wayne Prevett officiated our wedding and he did a phenomenal job. He was inspiring, uplifting, funny, encouraging etc etc. So many people that attended our wedding asked us... 'Who was that guy and where did you find him!'. Everyone agreed our ceremony was one of the best they had been to. With a last minute venue change, the kettle creek team had to do some major juggling to allow Wayne to be with us on our special day, and it was endlessly appreciated. Thank you again to you all! I would HIGHLY recommend Kettle Creek Weddings. :)

To make a long story short, if Wayne Prevett of Kettle Creek Weddings couldn't officiate our Wedding on the date we set, we would have changed the date (which wouldn't have been easy)! After getting to know Wayne through my Wedding Planning business, and coming to know what a caring, loyal, passionate, insightful person he is, I wouldn't have had it any other way. Thank you Wayne! You were one of the most truly special aspects of our day.

Wayne was the most wonderful officiant we could have asked for. My husband and I did not have much time to plan our wedding as we won a contest and when Wayne was sent to our home we were thrilled. He made the entire process completely painless which was wonderful because we didn't have time to be stressed out and we had very particular views on exactly what we did and did not want. Everything was just there and we could customize our ceremony any way we wanted which was perfect for us. I would HIGHLY recommend Wayne and the entire team at Kettle Creek Weddings to any couple looking for a strees free way to plan your wedding ceremony!

My now husband and I are both non-religious so we were having difficulty finding a non-denominational officiant for the wedding. Thankfully we stumbled across KCW. We had Ivan Arneill from Kettle Creek Weddings as our officiant. He was very kind, understanding, and full of ideas on how we could run our ceremony. He was very flexible in when/where we could meet. On the day of the ceremony, he was very professionally dressed and was excellent at ad-libbing as needed as our ceremony at some glitches (outdoor wedding -- it ended up raining when forecasted to not rain...). He had some very special things to say at the ceremony, which I will remember for a long time!

The only negative is the cost! It was almost $400 with travel expenses, and this is without an officiant at the rehearsal! We were watching our budget so we decided to not go with the rehearsal aspect (which would have been about $200 extra for the officiant to be there). I think things would have run smoother at the ceremony if we had Ivan at the rehearsal, but it worked out anyway!

Wayne was very professional and listened to everything that we wanted and needed. He was also great at offering advice as to what he has experienced before with ceremonies and the venue that we were at. On the day of the wedding he was very supportive and when I told him to just make me laugh if I became a sobbing mess he did just that. All of our guests raved about the ceremony all night long, and they still talk about it to this day!!

Marrti Pajunen is the best of the best. My husband and I were recently married on June 5th, and he really made our ceremony special. He's flexible, and didn't bat an eyelash when I asked if my groom could say his vows in French. A complete gem. The website info provided once you hire him is EXTREMELY helpful as well. We got so many comments about how beautiful our ceremony was - and how much people loved our officiant. A++

Martti was fantastic. We immediately clicked with him as soon as we met him. As we're not religious, we thought it would be weird having essentially a strange marry us but Martti put us at ease and made our ceremony very special. He was open to all our ideas and worked with us to make our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. I'd definitely recommend him.

Marrti conducted our wedding ceremony May 22, 2010. He kept us smiling and laughing during the ceremony and respected our wishes for a non-religious ceremony. Their website is extremely helpful in helping choose readings and poetry. It was so special to have a ceremony with content we had chosen as it related to our families and relationship. During the receiving line, we heard over and over how unique our ceremony was and how enjoyable Marrti was as the officiant. I would highly recommend him, and already have! He is marrying one of my girlfriend later this year!

I first met Wayne at my cousin's wedding and thought that the ceremony he preformed was so unique and engaging. It was like he was a part of our family and he made the whole experience so wonderful.

When I got engaged, my husband and I wanted Wayne to preform our wedding ceremony. We both wanted to write our own vows and Wayne helped make our wedding one of a kind. He paid such attention to who we are and what our values and morals are and he incorporated all of our qualities in a one of a kind ceremony. Our family was blown away by his ability to put everyone at ease like he'd known us for years. Our wedding ceremony was amazing!

My husband and I have gone on to use Wayne services for our sons blessing/baptism. Wayne has become a part of our family and we look forward to sharing more of our families memories with him. Thanks Wayne!

We were thrilled with the service we received from our officiant Marty of Kettle Creek weddings for our own ceremony in February 2010. The website we were given access to had a fantastic range of readings and ideas for each part of the ceremony which allowed to create a very personal event tailored to our own style. Marty was so great each time we met and we felt he got to know us and was such a great calming influence on the day itself. We have since recommended Kettle Creek to numerous friends and clients and have had the pleasure of photographing a number of their officiants over the past few years!

Having not wanting a religious ceremony it was difficult trying to find someone who would marry us 1- not in a church, 2- not wanting to slip in "and we thank God for this union", and 3- not suggesting we use that overrated Corinthians "love is patient.." reading.

Wayne at Kettle Creek weddings met all of our expectations. He was very professional and very responsive to my husband and I custom designing, and partially writing, most of the ceremony ourselves. We received an amazing feedback from our guests who thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony (when was the last time you heard that!) and were glad it wasn't another pre-reception snooze. I would recommend Kettle Creek Weddings to anyone looking for something new and fresh when it comes to their ceremony.

Martti Pajunen, what an amazing officiant. We could not have been happier with his service. In so many weddings I have attended the officient will forget the couples name. Marttie made sure he was able to say both of our names and trust me that is no easy accomplishment. He made our guests laugh and kept us smiling through our ceremony. He really made you feel like he knew you for years and made it so personal. Kettle Creek always you to really design your own ceremony. You can add as much religious elements are you wish or a little as you wish.

Martti stayed around after our ceremony and spoke with our guests, who had nothing but good words to discribe him and his services. I cannot wait to go to a wedding where I am a guest and get to see him at work again. Just a wonderful man and he really takes his job seriously and enjoys what he does.

Thank you so very much for making our wedding one to remember.

Wayne was amazing! He went about and beyond to make our ceremony special. He even has an entire site of different vows!
For our wedding, instead of having the best man and maid of honour sign the marriage licence, Wayne hid pens under two random chairs for us (we had been excited about this idea and decided it on it pre-wedding). It was so much fun! Wayne made our ceremony perfect and memorable. Thanks Wayne!

I was extremely excited when I discovered Kettle Creek Weddings. If you are interested in having a ceremony that is meaningful and thoughtful without necessarily adhering to tradition, you should seriously consider booking with Kettle Creek. Their service is astoundingly simple and modern, and enables you to completely customize your wedding ceremony.
Speaking specifically of the Waterloo Region branch of Kettle Creek: Martti is genuine, delightful, and eager to help. I am glad to have met him, enthusiastic about recommending him, and I remain very happy with his service.

After meeting with Wayne, it was a no-brainer - one of the easiest and best decisions we made for our wedding. He was the only officiant we met with, and we booked him on the spot. His professionalism and sense of ease immediately impressed us. He promised us that Kettle Creek Weddings aimed to make the ceremony a part of our wedding day that our guests would remember and talk about. He was right! Almost five years later, we still get compliments on our ceremony. Wayne was extremely flexible and accommodating in the planning process and set us both at ease in those nervous pre-ceremony moments. In a very tiny and 'cozy' chapel, he managed to create private moments and memories without making our guests feel like they were missing out of something. Thanks for making our amazing wedding day just that much better, Wayne!

Wayne was absolutely amazing. My husband and I were married almost 7 years ago and we had a fantastic experience with Kettle Creek Weddings from the beginning. We received nothing but compliments on the ceremony and he had such an impact on my family that my sister used him for her wedding in 2009. I can only hope that my third sister carries on the tradition of making Kettle Creek part of her day. I highly recommend Kettle Creek Weddings.
