Shawna Peterson is Manitoba born and raised, and has lived most of her life here.
She is married to Dave, an awesome husband of 29+ years. She enjoyed being a step-mom for the same period and now has a fabulous daughter-in-law and 3 beautiful grandchildren, ranging from 3 months to 7 years old.
Shawna has always loved and lived life to the fullest. She wrote an entertaining book in 2015 which depicts some of the funniest moments in her life. She views life through rose-colored glasses and believes the glass is ALWAYS “almost full” (half glass is for skeptics) and believes there is light in every corner of darkness.
Shawna’s faith, steadfast belief in love and the constitution of marriage, coupled with the natural gift of serving others, makes her an ideal Marriage Officiant.
Shawna's first wedding was in 2014 when she had the honour of officiating her niece’s wedding. This began to fuel a passion and since then, she's officiated several weddings for family, friends, colleagues and new clients. In 2019, Shawna created Weddingbella and grew a team of one to a team of four.
Shawna, and any member of the Weddingbella team would love to chat with you about your wedding plans and create a masterpiece ceremony that your Wedding Day deserves!
In 2012, Yvette Deveau founded Pay It Forward Manitoba and was drawn to the pay it forward movement because of kindness, compassion, human connection – and imagining all the possibilities! The possibilities of one person making a difference, the possibilities that there is magic all around us, and the possibilities of love and kindness making the world a better place.
In 2017 she was ordained as a Minister of Peace through The Beloved Community Seminary, and also became a Marriage Commissioner. All of this was to prepare her because she knew she wanted to be of service.
Becoming a Marriage Commissioner was a way for her to continue this human connection, meet couples, hear their love stories and imagine the possibilities and magic of creating a personal ceremony, that is special and unique to them. What better way to inspire others to believe in the power of human connection and love in the world, than the honour of connecting two souls on their continued journey.
Yvette believes it is a privilege to be a part of each couples’ special day and would be honored to be part of yours.
Denise Borowski has enjoyed a lengthy career at the University of Manitoba in the Research Ethics and Compliance Office and remains there today.

In the winter months, she spends time at the curling rink and enjoys a long bike ride in the summer.
Her spare time is spent with family and friends, which is exceptionally important to her.
Becoming a Wedding Commissioner is an exciting new adventure and she is honored to be a part of the Weddingbella Team.
Carol is Manitoban, born and bred, currently living in Gull Lake in the Interlake area.
