    Detailed, Accomodating, great ideas

    Bonny is A+++ !! She is a very WARM, accommodating, energetic, detail oriented officiant! We had a video chat session with her prior to the ceremony. She laid it out in microscopic detail, down to how the groomsmen place their hands together while standing at the side, to how our rings are placed on our fingers before we finish our vows...basically things I appreciated she noted that I had not thought about. This made it easy for us to concentrate on organizing the celebrations. With the ceremony process ironed out and discussed, we had a well thought out plan to implement. She has lots of good ideas, recommended the perfect photographer for us, and just made the whole wedding ceremony experience PERFECT!!

    She was even immediately so accommodating when 5 of our immediate family was flying in late and suggested pushing the ceremony an hour later so they wouldn't miss it.. that is above and beyond I say!!

    I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends and family who are getting married!

    Thank you Bonnie for making our day so wonderful with your charm, big smile, and cheerful demeanor!!

    I loved being your wedding officiant in every way! We connected immediately and I was teary eyed when it worked out that your beautiful mum ended up in the 9th hour, able to walk you down the aisle! I send my warmest appreciations to you both for including me in your nuptials!

    Bonny is the Best Ever Wedding Officiant!

    Consider yourself extremely lucky if you can land Bonny as your officiant for your chosen wedding date. Right from the start, I resonated with Bonny's grounded warmth, love, and kindness. She was not only incredibly professional - but also very friendly and fun! I could barely hold myself together that day as I was so overwhelmed marrying the love of my life, but she gently guided us through the entire ceremony with her soft direction. We are so lucky to have had Bonny be a part of our special day - thank you so very much, Bonny! - Michelle + Steve

    Bonny Thorne's reply:

    Aww thank you for such kind words. I’m touched.
    I loved being your officiant and it was super special with your kids in your wedding party!
    I wish you a lifetime of peace and happiness.

Our ceremony would not have been the same without you.

    The best experience for our special day

    Bonny made the experience so magical and intimate. We couldn’t have picked a more perfect person to make us man and wife, her positivity and her nurturing attitude made us feel like she was part of our family. She went above and beyond what we expected and we are forever grateful.

    Best Officiant Ever!

    As far as we are concerned Bonny is as good as it gets! From the first moment we connected to our ceremony, we felt a great connection with Bonny!
    She was so professional, while always staying light hearted and positive!
    Our 100% customized ceremony really captured the essence of our relationship and she encouraged feed back to make it just as so.
    On top of everything else Bonny made our rehearsal absolutely flawless and we all left feeling confident and ready for our big day!

    Thank you again Bonny!
    You will not regret hiring this amazing woman!

    Bonny Thorne's reply:

    Hailey + Colin,

    I was delighted to meet you both and have such a warm lighthearted connection when we met and during your romantic ceremony. Hailey, you looked stunning coming down the aisle and there were tears being shed throughout the exchange of vows, too.
    I send my warmest wishes to you both. Please let me know if you come through Kelowna again.
    Warmly, Bonny

    Best part of the wedding

    Bonny was kind, passionate, and had great communication. The guests couldn’t stop commenting on how great Bonny and the ceremony was. Short and sweet but very heartfelt and romantic. 100% recommend and completely worth every penny!

    Bonny Thorne's reply:

    Hanna + Dalton,
    I loved everything about your wedding!
    Beautiful farm backdrop, loving family and friends that were so thrilled for you both, and they welcomed me with open arms.
    Thank you for the honour of being your officiant, and I can’t wait for the stunning photos! 👰😌 Kindly, Bonny

    Easiest choice you can make

    The moment we met Bonny we knew we had found the perfect fit for our big day. Her energy, optimism, and enthusiastic personality left us feeling confident that our ceremony was in the right hands! And on our big day? It was an incredible experience and we wouldn't have wanted anyone other than Bonny, she was above and beyond what we expected! 100/10 would recommend :)

    Stephanie + Nick,

    Amazing Service and Ideas

    We combined our wedding day with my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary and Bonny did an amazing job of honouring both occasions. Her ideas regarding ways to integrate both were tremendously helpful and the ceremony was excellent. Ray and I cannot imagine someone else having been able to pull it off.

    Bonny Thorne's reply:

    Congratulations again Dana & Ray,
    I loved meeting you both and I am thrilled we are all residing in Kelowna, and really hope our paths cross again soon.
    Enjoyed all of the writing the special pieces for the ceremony and creating a memorable 60th anniversary which was so much fun with all the letters we collected , ( her Royal Highness, the Queen) was really special!
    Warmest Wishes, Bonny

    Best wedding officiant!

    Bonny was very enthusiastic and on top of everything. She had great suggestions for the ceremony and brought up things I hadn't even thought of. We used the first ceremony draft she sent as it was perfect and exactly what we wanted

    Bonny Thorne's reply:

    Desiree,
    Your wedding was so magical and you looked stunning! I loved the farm setting, and your group of family and close friends were so loving and 'over the moon' happy for you and Kodie. It was my honor to be your officiant!
