About

On WeddingWire since 2017

Last update: August 2023

Your life together as a married couple should start with a wedding ceremony that is a true reflection of your values and style. Whether it is traditional, spiritual or secular it should be a representation of your culture and an expression of the love you share together. You should have the opportunity to provide input in the preparation of your ceremony and write your own vows if you so choose. My role as a Wedding Officiant authorized by Humanist Canada is to bring comfort to those in attendance and to join them in celebrating the love and commitment you have discovered in each other. Your wedding should be meaningful, respectful and memorable!

Cool, calm and collected

Jonny was cool, calm and collected, which made us feel 10x better day of. He was professional, and sincere. He gave us lots of helpful tips leading up to the wedding day, and made sure we knew the process and all the legalities necessary. Thanks again Jonny for all your help!

Highly recommended!!

I would highly recommend Jonny as a wedding officiant. From the very beginning, communication and coordination of the ceremony was executed flawlessly. He was quick to respond, open to creative suggestions and customizations to the ceremony, and very professional. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time, well dressed, and he delivered our ceremony perfectly. As well, the signing of the license was efficient, as he had everything fully prepared and walked us through the process in under 2 minutes. And the best part was, he knew to RUN out of the background when it was time for us to seal the vows with the kiss, so there was NO CHANCE he would end up in the photos. A true professional through and through!

Finally an officiant with some personality!

We worked with Johnny and a friend officiant and the two went perfectly together. We were able to have a friend marry us, so the scripting and then Johnny did the legals after. It was great and he was easy to work with and reliable! Highly recommend

Great Officiant

Jonny was great. He talked us through the whole ceremony well ahead of time and made our ceremony what we wanted. We were lucky to have Jonny apart of our day!

Wonderful Ceremony

Due to covid, my husband and I decided to have a small ceremony with only parents and maid of honour/best man in my MIL backyard. Jonny was so nice and the ceremony that he came up with was so perfect and exactly what we wanted. Thank you Jonny!!

Very accommodating for a last minute booking

My fiancé and I decided to elope last minute and had to book all our vendors the day before.
We had Jonny booked for our wedding that we had to move to next summer, so I reached out to him to see if he could do an elopement for us instead.
Although he had a busy day booked, he made his schedule work to be available for us!
He arrived on time and had the perfect ceremony speech for us with traditional vows that made us smile, laugh and cry.
We can’t thank him enough for making this happen for us and being so prepared in under 24 hours!

Bending and twisting and sticking the landing

Jonny was our Officiant during our recent wedding and truly, we couldn't be happier. We first reached out to him before the pandemic to plan our October 2020 wedding. As the months rolled on and our world was forever changed....and changed again....and again we made more than a few changes to our wedding plans - location, times, set-up, itinerary and with each necessary flex and pivot, Jonny calmly bended and twisted with us. He was quick to respond, always calm, funny, patient and interested and made us feel like we were all that our union was all that mattered....and in the end, he was so very right. We had a small intimate ceremony - broadcast to 200+ others in their homes - and Jonny "stuck the landing" - taking us through a ceremony that was equal parts sweet, funny and "us" (never mind Legal lol). Our many real and virtual guests had nothing but praise for the quality of his work. We are having a party and vow renewal at some time with our nearest and dearest when this pandemic is a memory and even though we do not "need" him as we are already legally married, we sure to want his positive energy and calm to continue to centre us in love and laughter! Thank you, Jonny!

Helpful, Approachable and Courteous Officiant

Jonny Belinko is a very kind, courteous and helpful officiant.

Given we got married in the middle of the pandemic, it was very stressful in many ways, but Jonny made it so much easier on us. He was always available to answer questions by email, text or phone call.

He made the process very smooth and easy on us. The ceremony he provided for us was so perfect for us that we barely even needed to alter anything and even the little changes we did make, Jonny was right on it for us.

Also, for anyone in the same boat of having a wedding impacted by the pandemic and restrictions and wary of social distancing because of vulnerable family and friends - he was very respectful of keeping his distance. We had an indoor wedding and he stayed requisite space of 6ft from ourselves and our guests and kindly wore a mask when he had to come close to us and our witnesses when signing the paper work. He also offered the opportunity for us to sign the paperwork before the ceremony so we could have more space and limit contact and made sure to remind us all to have our own pens to limit contact in that way, as well.

Before our ceremony, Jonny had officiated at a wedding where I was a bridesmaid late in 2019. My friend also recommended him so highly and glowingly told me that he was one of the best parts of their day because he made everything so easy on them and helped them both relax.

If you are looking for a helpful, but very easy going and approachable officiant, he’s your guy! We can’t thank him enough for making our ceremony so simple and calm, (and in the middle of some really trying times!).

A perfect ceremony

Jonny was responsible, punctual, and flexible, and he provided the custom ceremony that we both wanted. Perfect for our needs. We're sure he can do the same for you.
