    Personalised & Fun Ceremony with Wayne!

    We had the best experience with Wayne! He is amazing to work with and presented us with the perfect short and sweet wedding speech! It was personalised to make it suit our personalities and we got so many compliments on it! Wayne is very friendly, easy going and accommodating! We hadn't gotten the chance to meet Wayne in person before our wedding because of covid, but when we did meet him it was as if we had known him for years!! Highly recommend using Wayne if you can for your wedding day, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Wayne for making our day so special!

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    I sincerely appreciate your kind words Jules. I very much enjoyed getting to meet you and Rebecca and to be part of your wedding day.
    I wish you all the best in your future together.

    Our dream come true...

    As a “covid bride” there were a lot of upsets in our wedding planning. A lot that had our dream wedding completely re designed. In saying that though, so much positivity came from the re planning of our special day. In fact, it was Covid that brought us to our officiant at Let’s Tie the Knot. Originally we were going to get a friend to officiate our ceremony, but due to the fact that he couldn’t travel here, we had to find an alternative. We began our search, and came across Wayne Palendat. Our first meeting was over Zoom. My now husband, and I felt an immediate connection, like we’d known Wayne forever. As the conversation continued, Wayne got a read on us and lined up some meetings with other officiants he works with, to ensure we felt we could choose the best fit for us. While we respected each individual we “met”, or even read about...we just found that for us, Wayne was it. He was the one that had to officiate for us. To no surprise, Wayne was already booked for our day. We understood this, and chose someone else within Let’s Tie the Knot. It was Wayne who continued to speak with us and ensure all of our questions were answered. When regulations were changing, it was Wayne who helped keep a stressed bride at ease. Finally, the day came where for whatever reason, Wayne became available for our date and time! We couldn’t believe it. Something in this crazy time, came together for us.

    From here on out, the unanswered questions we had, right down to where to “honeymoon”, had solutions from Wayne. It honestly felt like there wasn’t anything that would stump him. He attended our rehearsal and made sure everything ran smoothly, and we were comfortable before we quit for the evening.

    Fast forward to our day, Wayne arrived with the script he’d written just for us. One that brought us both to tears as it touched us so personally and drew from stories we’d told him. He came in to the bride room to let me know my groom was ready, and when I eagerly responded, he happily headed out to get our ceremony started. He laid down rules we had asked him to, and transitioned into the start of the rest of our lives. Wayne was so thoughtful, so caring, that he paid attention to the little details. He had told us at the rehearsal, to pause before our kiss, as that would give him time to get out of the way for what would turn out to be one of our favourite moments caught on camera. While much of the ceremony was blurred by the end of it all, we were so happy to come home to the recorded Zoom call Wayne had set up for us. We didn’t need a videographer, the importance in all of the words that were spoken, were right there at our fingertips. I think it’s obvious we can’t say enough about Wayne, but the last note I’ll leave you with is that we most definitely recommend him! He’ll keep a very open mind - with the exception of sock choice - and add to your day, just as you’d always imagined.

    Our wedding ended up being more than we’d ever dreamed of, and Wayne definitely had a hand in that.

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    Thank you Maija & Tyler for sharing your thoughts. I very much enjoyed working with you and helping you to have the wedding of your dreams.
    Very best wishes for your future together.

    Wayne is a Pro

    Wayne was an excellent officiant. He offered us great advice and really helped keep us on track in terms of timelines and order of procession.

    Wayne offered several options for the ceremony and accomodated our requests. He is a professional and it's obvious he has done quite a few weddings. He kept the guests entertained with some humour and delivered a very nice ceremony.

    Review for Wayne Palendat

    My husband and I got married just over a week ago and I’d just like to say a few things about Wayne. He was great to work with, he was also very accommodating. Wayne also has a great sense of humour and he was always on time with everything. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    Thank you Emily for your comments. Despite the early season snowflakes, you had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and I was very happy to be invited to participate.

    I would recommend his services to anyone I know

    We found Wayne through the Wedding Wire website and are so happy we did! What drew us to Wayne was his flexibility in the kind of ceremony he delivers and tailors for any kind of couple, from religious to non-religious. He made every effort to try and get to know us as a couple within a short period of time to personalize his script about us as a couple during the ceremony. My husband and I wanted to write our own vows so he worked with us and provided us very helpful guidance. The ceremony delivery on our wedding was beautiful and we loved his words as it portrayed mine and my husband's views and values in life in a non-religious way which is exactly what we wanted! Thank you so much Wayne! Emelia and Marc

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    Thank you for Sharing your thoughts Emilia. It was a real pleasure to meet you and Marc and to be part of your wedding ceremony. I wish the two of you all the very best in the future.

    Great Service

    Wayne was very accommodating to our wants and kept the ceremony short and sweet just like we asked.
    He was very professional, I’m glad we chose him! And I’ve already recommended him to one of my girlfriends who is getting married next year. 5 out of 5!

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    Thank you very much Keshia, both for your kind words and for recommending us to your girlfriend. I hope that I will get to see you again at her wedding.

    Amazing! Wayne is a gem!

    Wayne is absolutely amazing to work with and I would 100% recommend him. He customized our ceremony, edited it until we felt it was perfect, was easy to talk to via email and in person. Everyone loved him during our ceremony. Very professional. He was the perfect person to marry my husband and I.

    Let's Tie The Knot's reply:

    I really appreciate your comments Kelsey. It was a pleasure to work with you and to be part of your wedding day. I wish you and Riley all the very best in the future.

Many friends and family commented on how the ceremony touched them, evoked emotions and even made them laugh, so he decided to offer his services to other couples.

Wayne is very passionate about being a marriage commissioner. He is a casual, laid back person who brings that demeanor to meetings and the ceremony itself. He also possess a sarcastic wit and is happy to add humour to a ceremony if that is one of your wishes. He wants you to be able to relax and fully enjoy the journey that leads to your wedding day.

Wayne creates the scripts for Let's Tie The Knot and will help you create a ceremony that truly reflects your personalities and is as individual and unique as you are.
