TESTIMONIALS | Jonny Belinko - Wedding Officiant

Mark & Cynthia

July 9, 2017

Jonny officiated our wedding at Canoe restaurant in downtown Toronto. We are very happy with how Jonny helped us tie the knot. He made an effort to get to know us and our story since our first meeting. He was very accommodating to the different ideas we had for our ceremony. We liked that he provided a template which we could build on and create our custom vows. Jonny is easy to work with, a good listener, and engaging. He is very familiar with the paperwork process and is responsible; showing up early to the ceremony coordinate with the other vendors and the wedding party. – Canoe Resturant, Toronto, ON

We loved the ceremony that Jonny crafted for our wedding. Having known Jonny personally before we got engaged, he has always been a champion for love and marriage. He was open to consulting with us on the structure of the ceremony, and let us write our own personal vows. Our guests were moved by his simple and honest words. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a non-denominational, unique ceremony. – The Dimond Farm, Simcoe, ON

Jonny was everything we were hoping for in an officiant. He was professional, communicative, and receptive to our needs. On top of that, he is a genuinely lovely person; it was a pleasure to have him officiate our day.  Jonny was an absolute delight from the moment we connected. He set up a Skype meeting for my partner and I as meeting in person was tricky to coordinate due to my partner and I’s work schedule. He got our vibe right away and was so charming. Jonny tailored our secular ceremony to our exact tastes… Which is a nod to traditional with humanist elements and added a Unity Sand ceremony in the mix. He checked in periodically to see if we needed any changes to the ceremony leading up to the wedding date. All our family and friends complimented us on how intimate, genuine, and brimming with love our ceremony felt. Very few dry eyes in the building!  Thank you Jonny for officiating our dream day! – Ikonica Studio, Toronto, ON

Jonny Belinko is an exceptional officiant and mentor who provided us with guidance leading up to our wedding and an emotional ceremony tailored to represent me and Christopher perfectly. Jonny not only led a powerful, humorous and unique wedding ceremony, he provided guidance with the writing of our vows. This allowed us to each write a secret vow that he looked over and steered so we created vows that complimented each other but still gave us the surprise of hearing those very important words on the night of our wedding. Jonny’s enthusiasm, passion, and dedication shone through with every interaction. He has an unbridled commitment to the institution of marriage and he supported my husband and I every step of the way. Jonny brings with him an intensity of purpose to help guide you on this powerful journey together. You won’t find a more caring, passionate and brilliant human being to lead you together on this wild adventure. – Jam Factory, Toronto, ON

Jonny was extremely efficient in expediting our marriage. One phone call was all it took to explain the process and organize a time/place for our ceremony. He met us downtown at a nice cafe and had use married in under half an hour. He was courteous and professional the entire time. Highly recommended. – L’espresso Bar, Toronto, ON
