How long is the ceremony?
The average ceremony is 20 minutes long but each one is unique so it can be shorter or longer depending on your preference and anything you would like to have included such as songs, poems or personally written vows.
Will You Travel?
Yes, I am willing to travel outside of Sudbury, however travel expenses will be required.
Where do I get a marriage license?
You can get all the information you need to get your marriage license at the following links;
How far ahead should I book?
The marriage license and wedding officiant are the only two things required to get legally married in Ontario, everything else optional so you should book as soon as you set a date and confirm your location. I’m open to last-minute bookings if I have open dates, especially in the off-season.
Do we need to have witnesses present?
Yes. You are legally obligated to provide two witnesses of sound mind over the age of 18 besides the couple getting married.
Traditional Handfasting Ceremony
We found Rayvin to be a thoroughgoing professional in all matters of the ceremony and were very happy with the results. There were handouts prepared for those taking the four directions, so that all involved (mainly our children and close friends) would not have to worry about what to say or when. The energy of the circle was perfectly held in place, and flowed very nicely throughout the whole day.
If anyone is looking for a priestess to perform their own handfasting, we highly recommend employing Reverend Rayvin Nyte for this as she is well versed. Regardless of the path followed, I can attest to her competence in performing such rituals. It was an honour to have her at our ritual, lending her blessing to our union.

impressed with the way she made everyone feel so loved and so comfortable, regardless of age, sex or physical
limitations. I have been involved with many spiritual groups over the years and must admit, it was the first time I
witnessed EVERYONE treating everyone equally, with love and respect. It was easy to see that that was a
reflection of their leader/teacher Rayvin.
I knew nothing of her before, however, after that event, I knew she was a woman of integrity, honesty, pride,
compassion, love and service and I wanted to get to know her more.
And what I found most impressive, she had lost 150 pounds in just over 1 year!
Regardless of how varied her interests are, she is always an amazing, caring, compassionate, honest, dedicated
servant of LOVE. Any church, club, group, city, is blessed to know her and call her friend.

Rayvin has very good interpersonal and communication skills. Based on what I have observed, I have no doubt she would be very proficient at performing clergy responsibilities with integrity, either in the capacity of a healer, through community involvement or by performing ministerial duties. As a reference person, I strongly support and encourage her in her present aspirations and wish her good luck in her future endeavours.

Ms. Nyte is one of the most loving people I know. She teaches, by her own example, how to show love to yourself and to others. Before marrying my same-sex partner, I interviewed many people to facilitate my ceremony. This person plays a very important role in anyone’s wedding day. Like any other couple, we were seeking someone who would be comfortable with our unique love and vision for our ceremony. This person required being open-minded, flexible and have strong communication and public speaking skills all while remaining true to her profession, acting within her role as an officiant and working within the guidelines and legislation around marriage ceremonies. The woman we chose was such a great fit for us and we were truly blessed to have had her part of our “big day”.
Ms. Nyte is able to captivate a crowd and ensure the focus stays on the couple. She would bring a light-heart, compassion and understanding, a safe space to express vision to any couple planning their ceremony. With all of her tools, resources, networks and love, Ms. Nyte is the right candidate to fulfill the role in the joining of two people. Ms. Nyte possesses the necessary skills needed to facilitate a ceremony, but more so, she reflects the kind of person who should be in such a role.

The Handfasting was the most beautiful ceremony that I have ever witnessed.
