Kate Marentette was great! She was flexible given our rushed circumstance and willing to accommodate our request to have the ceremony in Toronto on short notice. She made us feel relaxed and the whole process felt easy. She took care of all the paperwork in a timely manner and gave us all the information we needed. From the first skype call, we knew that she was the officiant for us and she exceeded our expectations. I would definitely consider referring Kate as an officiant to any one I know getting married!

Kate Marentette was a great help to make our wedding a memorable day! We were very happy to work with her all the way through the process. The ceremony she prepared was sweet, simple and quick. All of what we had asked for. She worked with us to ensure our own vows were included and kept us on track for writing them. Kate's personality matched exactly what we were looking for with our wedding day and ceremony. Tony & Kristen December 2019

Kate Marentette was an amazing officiate. She was wonderful to work with right from the start with her flexibly and creativity. We came to her with an unorthodox “surprise” wedding and she exceeded our expectations. She helped build and orchestrate a beautiful wedding which included our three children. Thank you for everything, we would definitely recommend Kate for any wedding ceremony. Cory & Jodie November 2019

Kate Marentette was absolutely fantastic and we would recommend her to any couple. Kate was completely on board with us writing a lot of the ceremony ourselves and was very flexible and open to all of our ideas. Our ceremony had a lot of tricky names with unusual pronunciations and she spent a lot of time and effort reviewing and practicing so that the ceremony went smoothly. She is very personable and down to earth and we felt so comfortable having her marry us. We had many comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how good she was. Thank you for everything Kate! Mike & Roz October 2019

And not only that, but we really enjoyed meeting with her beforehand and appreciated that she took the time to get to know us and really helped us focus on a ceremony that suited us the best.

It was a pleasure to deal with Kate Marentette. Setting up appointments ,transferring funds, meeting with Kate to tweak the ceremony was easy peasy. Kate is such a down to earth, unassuming woman. She listened to our ideas, injected a couple of hers ideas and the ceremony became uniquely ours. Those in attendance commented on how it was so us! Thank you one & all. Jennifer & Kevin August 2019

Kate Marentette was the perfect choice for us. Not only did she guide us through the process of creating a ceremony that was completely personalized to our needs she was also super knowledgeable when it came to processes such as obtaining the marriage certificate. She gave us the freedom we requested in putting our vows together while using her experience to recommend ways the ceremony could flow better or cute ideas to add a little bit of humour. Kate was super responsive to any questions we had and when the day finally came she delivered a beautiful ceremony. I could go on, but she is a wonderful officiant who I would recommend to anyone looking!! Thanks Kate! Robert & Chloe June 2019

Where to begin?! Kate Marentette is incredible. We had to do the impossible. I’m Canadian and my (now) husband is Aussie and we live in Australia with our one-year-old daughter. We decided we would get married while home in Elora, Ontario for Christmas. Kate was very highly recommended to us so we had very high hopes and very limited time to get acquainted. We exchanged a few emails before we left Australia and then she came to my parents’ house to work on the ceremony. We honestly felt as though we had known her for years when she came over. Kate is very warm, very funny and immediately put us at ease with what had seemed such a daunting task. She had amazing ideas and input into our ceremony. We slept well that night knowing she was in control. The day of our wedding, Kate came upstairs where I was getting ready to give me a hug and further reassurance. The ceremony could not have been more perfect and Kate was the right mix of professional but personable. She somehow made it feel like she was one of our family members marrying us. She dealt with the inevitable craziness that our one year old daughter and her 3 year old cousins brought with such grace. I really can’t say enough good about Kate. She helped make our day so seemless and special. We are keen to see her again when we are back in Canada visiting family - I reckon not many people end up having a lasting friendship with their celebrant, but Kate is not like most people. Can’t recommended her enough! Owen & Cheralin December, 2018
