The KCW Story

Our Story:

Kettle Creek Weddings (KCW) was founded by Rosanne and Wayne Prevett in 1998.

Prior to this, Rosanne and Wayne spent six years offering humanitarian assistance in the city of St. Thomas where they lived. This included free weekly meals, a children’s lunch program, a successful community co-op and much more. Their focus gradually evolved to include the provision of Officiant services for common rites of passage.

Although, they had officiated weddings for over twenty years, in 2003 they decided to commit full time to this venture, performing 187 in the first year.

Since its inception, KCW has developed new team members, expanded into other regions across Ontario and has performed several thousand wedding ceremonies.

Our Foundation:

KCW’s foundation is our passion to see lives transformed. It is our conviction that marriage is the greatest thing going and are committed to investing into each couples lives.

KCW is based on the same principles and practices of our not-for-profit, incorporated religious charity called Celebrating Life Ministries.

Many 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.

KCW is an organization of ordained ministers who are licensed to perform wedding ceremonies through government recognized denominations.

Celebrating Life Ministries (CLM) began in 2000 and has since helped thousands of people. Its purpose is to help people celebrate and navigate life's most significant transitions including weddings, funerals and baby dedications.
