Super Reliable and accommodating!

Richard was super quick to respond to my messages. He was able to hop on a quick phone call to give me some options, as my fiance and I needed to hire an officiant last minute
(2 months before the day). He was very responsive and accommodating. He was on time, friendly and professional. He made our small, and simple legal ceremony very special and we’d recommend him to any family/ friends who need him!😊 Thank you Richard!

Best Experience!

It can be a little daunting trying to find someone to officiate your wedding ceremony, especially when they're a stranger. However, Richard felt like a friend from the beginning — he is so knowledgeable, warm, kind and genuine. We had no idea how to structure a secular ceremony, but Our Wedding Celebration included a thorough planner to help. Richard went above and beyond; he took the time to get to know us, fielded every question we had (and responded super quickly), and accommodated the last minute changes we had to make. Ceremonies can be emotional and a little nerve-wracking but Richard made us feel calm, confident and supported. We're so thrilled he reworked his schedule to accommodate our ceremony; it wouldn't have been the same without his presence and guidance. Thank you, Richard!

Make Them a Part of Your Celebrations

I would highly recommend Richard at Our Wedding Celebrations!

He was very responsive in returning our emails and as we were from out of town met with us virtually and via phone and was very open with wedding requirements and the packages he offered.

He was very good at keeping things on schedule and guiding us through the ceremony in a calm and collected manor.

Thank you so much Richard!

Wonderful officiant

My husband and I hired Richard after reading reviews of her services on wedding wire. After having our first zoom consultation we felt that he was the best fit to be our officiant. We had such great feedback after the wedding from our friends and family regarding the ceremony. We highly recommend Richard if you are looking for an officiant. He kept in touch with us leading up to the wedding and was quick and answering our questions.

Amazing Officiant

Richard was great. He helped answer any questions we had, helped ensure all the paperwork was in order, and helped us decide how we wanted our ceremony to go/what to include.
The website provided to help plan was great and gave us a ton of ideas on what we wanted to include or leave out. Richard was welcoming and honoured our choices and provided guidance where requested.
He was everything we were looking for in an officiant, and we are very happy we hired him!

Simply Amazing!

Richard was amazing, not only did he go above and beyond our expectations but he blew our family and friends away, we had a small private ceremony and it was everything I wanted and more. We can't thank him enough for everything he did for us. This is a weird time we are all in with covid, but Richard made sure our wedding felt perfect.
I highly recommend using Kettle Creek Weddings.

I have been performing wedding ceremonies....forever!

I want every ceremony to be unique and special for the couple.

I am easy going, and think that a little humour can break the tension of the moment!

I believe that your wedding ceremony should be intimate, funny and sentimental. I am very sensitive to the nature of the day, so my part of the ceremony is very flexible.

I encourage you to write your own vows, it adds so much more personality to the ceremony and makes the day truly magical!

I want your wedding day to be a blessed and joyous experience!
