We are two of the most experienced and innovative marriage officiants in the greater Ottawa area. We offer all types of wedding ceremonies and our trademark is our refreshing blend of tradition with contemporary approaches that embody love, joy, humour and respect. All of our wedding ceremonies are highly personalized and customized so as to be tailored made for each couple. Our ceremonies are engaging for the guests and allow our couples to be completely relaxed during their ceremony.

We give you full control over your script and provide you with a comprehensive collection of tools and resources to help you get your script and, especially your vows, exactly the way you want them, and beyond most guests'expectations.

The most common comment heard after one of our ceremonies is that the wedding couple, their families and guests regard that ceremony as having been the best that they've ever experienced in their lives. Not suprisingly, we are the officiants of choice for most leading Ottawa wedding professionals, especially wedding planners, venue coordinators, photographers and DJs.

With over 1,000 ceremonies experience, we have seen and can handle any type of unusual requirement. We impart that experience in every ceremony that we perform. We fully understand the pressures and tensions that can be associated with weddings and we strive to ensure peace of mind for our couples, their wedding party as well as all of their parents.

Unique in Ottawa, we offer all couples a face-to-face no obligation consultation meeting with us prior to needing to decide to book us or leave a deposit. We are also amongst the very few officiants in Ottawa that offer the option of a live rehearsal. We have likely led more rehearsals in Ottawa than most other civil officiants combined.

We perform ceremonies mainly in the greater Ottawa National Capital District and surrounding areas in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. For high end custom ceremonies, we travel to more distant locations such as Mt. Tremblant, Montebello, Kingston, etc. Read less

My partner and I had always talked about eloping when the time came to get married and we were so happy to find an officiant who specialized in these types of ceremonies. We initially tried a few other services but were met with little understanding of what we wanted. When I emailed Keith and Lynne I heard back the same day and we went from there - they were efficient, knowledgable and willing to make the ceremony what we wanted. We appreciated their help and suggestions as well as flexibility with our date, location and timing. The ceremony itself was thoughtful, personal and everything we could have wished for. Lynne and Keith know exactly what they're doing to make an elopement a success - thanks so much!

My life's partner and I (who had been in a common-law relationship for 24 years) decided in January 2016 that we would like to be married to make our relationship status official. As a private same-sex couple, we chose elopement and it was our hope that we could be married in February of 2016. We discovered Keith and Lynne Langille (Exceptional Ceremonies) online and were very impressed with their informative website and the reasonable price, so we decided on a few possible elopement dates and then made contact with Keith and Lynne via email. Within hours, we had the date, time, witnesses (provided by them) and vows established through two email exchanges with Keith. We were thrilled with this kind of efficiency because it was our desire to keep things very simple and private and to share our joyful news with family and friends after we were married. A couple of weeks later, we needed to move the original date up by a day, and this was no problem at all. Again, we were impressed with the professionalism and flexibility of Exceptional Ceremonies. When we met Keith and Lynne on our elopement/wedding day, they welcomed us warmly into their beautiful home (our choice of wedding venue) and made us feel very comfortable with their friendliness, knowledge of required paper work, efficiency, sense of humour and expertise. We relaxed immediately in their company and enjoyed every moment of our special vows and day. We would recommend Exceptional Ceremonies to anyone choosing to get married in Ottawa and surrounding area. Thanks again to Keith and Lynne for making our day perfect and special!

Keith made our special day all that more special. He personalized the ceremony that made it a perfect fit for my husband and I. He added a nice touch of humour and sentiment which provided a memory for us. We are happy that we shared our day with Keith. I would highly recommend Lynne and Keith without hesitation.

We met with Keith to discuss our wedding, initially because we wanted to include a hand-fasting with our ceremony. Keith was wonderful to work with through the whole process, very accessible, and communicative. He provided very helpful direction and insights, and we ended up with a ceremony that was touching, very personal, humorous, and romantic!! We couldn't have asked for better! Keith was very professional and put us at ease, at what could have been a very stressful time. He also made sure that all the legalities were taken care of, and provided all the necessary information to apply for our license within the proper timeline. His suggestions enhanced our ceremony, and our guests truly enjoyed themselves. There was laughter and there were tears of joy, and beautiful memories of an incredible wedding!

Keith did an excellent job officiating our civil ceremony on Valentine's Day. The ceremony was the perfect blend of fun, positive, creative and most of all professional. Thanks for setting the stage for our marriage and making it an unforgettable day!

Lynne was so wonderful and helpful with planning our ceremony. She was very quick to get back to us whenever we had any questions. On the actual wedding day, Lynne provided such a personal and memorable ceremony. Friends and family kept coming up to us afterwards saying that the ceremony was the best they'd ever been to!

You are in very good hands if you decide on having Lynne or Keith as your officiant for your big day. They're awesome and will deliver a ceremony that you'll remember for the rest of your life.

Keith was recommended by a colleague and I am glad to further recommend him. Before the wedding he responded promptly to all our questions and accommodated all our needs. On the day of the wedding most of my guests were late due to the closure of Parkway on Sundays, which we all forgot about. I freaked out but he patiently waited with us for at least 30 min, he didn't rush us, it was very very kind of him. The ceremony was short and simple, exactly how we wanted. We loved how he included specific references to our kids and the guests in his script, something that we didn't expect. The cost was affordable. We chose the location and he took care of all the paper work. We have great memories all together.

Keith did an outstanding job adding a very special touch to our already very special day! The ceremony was heartfelt and very personal and we were deeply touched by the level of thoughtfulness that went into it. It had the right amount of emotion and humor. It was "very us". Thank you Keith!!! I would recommend your services anytime!

Keith put together a beautiful ceremony for my and my husband's immediate family. Although we had only corresponded by email, he provided a service that felt completely tailored to our relationship, and it was beautiful. Also, the bundle of information he provided for help in the steps after the wedding really reduces the stress involved in the process. I absolutely recommend his services.

My now husband and I cannot say enough good things about Keith! He was very flexible (we unfortunately had to change ceremony times more than once) and made the ceremony very personalized; he even included a part about our dog. We would recommend him to anyone who is planning a wedding :)
