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!Sent on 15/10/2020

Helpful, Approachable and Courteous Officiant
Jonny Belinko is a very kind, courteous and helpful officiant.Sent on 29/08/2020
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!).

Quick, romantic, sentimental
Jonny was everything we wanted and more. He helped make our ceremony as personal as possible. He spoke so well and helped us through our vows amazingly, even with our hiccups. I would suggest him to anyone who asks for a referral! He was everything and more! Thank youSent on 09/03/2020
