What if you could actually be present at your wedding and spend quality time with the people you love the most?

On your wedding day, you should not be acting as the main point of contact, setting up decor, and putting out fires. Instead, you should be enjoying the celebration of your love and dancing the night away with all of your favourite people.

With over 10 years of experience, we like to think that working with us as your wedding planner is an investment in your wedding memories.

Whether you are newly engaged and unsure of where to start or you're further along in the planning process, knee-deep in Pinterest Boards, and to-do's we are here to help you with as much or as little support as needed.

Simply Amazing

Where do I even start! Jess was absolutely amazing from day 1 and was there for us every step of the way. When we reached out to her to help plan our wedding, she jumped right into finding our dream venue, giving us all the information we needed and provided some awesome advice throughout the planning process. She was organized and attentive and made sure we had everything checked off the to-do list.
She took all the stress off our shoulders and made this a FUN process vs something daunting and stressful, not to mention she's funny as heck and super easy to talk to.
I could not recommend Jessica enough for making our dream wedding come true

Personalized Planning

We needed Jessica and somehow the factors aligned so she could facilitate/coordinate our wedding day - our venue had two prior event planners leave during our contract. Jessica supported us right from the beginning and on a tight timeline (3 months out). She was extremely professional, organized, reassuring, and kept all the details in order. We had various meetings and she ensured that our vision would come to life! We are grateful our paths crossed for this milestone. She was so connected to all our vendors and on the day of she made sure I was able to be in the moment by taking all the stress off my plate. I can’t thank her enough for making our day so wonderful.

Thank god for Bonafide!

We absolutely loved working with Lindsey from Bonafide Events Studio. It is not easy to plan a wedding during a pandemic, but Lindsey was so so helpful guiding us through this wedding planning process. She came to our meetings with vendors and asked all those questions a bride and groom may not think of. She worked seamlessly with all of our vendors, and made sure everyone was on time and communicating with each other. We were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy our special day without having to worry about anything because we knew Lindsey had it all covered! Additionally, our parents and wedding party just got to eat, drink and enjoy the day instead of having to do tasks, and Lindsey coordinated with them if she needed them.. she kept those groomsmen in line! Lindsey was my voice of reason and reassurance during the planning process. She had me covered literally when it poured rain sideways after our ceremony, and then made sure we were able to get our photos when the sun did shine through after. I will honestly miss texting her on the regular planning our wedding. She may be a planner but she felt like a bridesmaid and best pal. We truly enjoyed working with Lindsey and would highly recommend her and the Bonafide Events Studio team to anyone getting married in southwestern Ontario!!

Wedding coordination

So happy to have had Jessica and Bonafide Events Studio work our recent wedding. We hired Jessica to coordinate the wedding about 3 months prior, and it was the absolute best choice. Jessica was so pleasant to work with, navigated discussing all the details with our vendors, and made sure all were on the same page for the event. Jessica is extremely organized and responsive, friendly, and went out of her way to make sure the wedding, and our experience, was amazing. Jessica made sure any stress on the day of did not fall on to us. Jessica was such a pleasure to work with from the planning stages throughout the event day. We literally could not have done it without her and are so thankful we had her on our team. 10/10

Owner cancelled contract 29 days before wedding

Because I could not guarantee every person including the bride groom would wear masks the day of the wedding she cancelled. We’d hired her in April 2020. She clearly is unaware that under the Privacy Act you cannot ask as a business provider for whether someone’s been vaccinated unless you are a medical practitioner. She decided to post this confidential information that although the bride and groom had a mild case of Covid and we’re not contagious, she
posted their names on social media as “anti vaccinators” and refused to continue with her contracted services unless I could guarantee all guests and bride and groom would wear a mask every moment of the day. I cannot guarantee how other people will behave. Has she done this to other clients? Does she ask for proof of vaccination from the bride and groom? If she just takes their word they’ve been vaccinated and they haven’t been, then what? To make matters worse, she knew from the beginning I had major health issues and needed help the month before and day of but it didn’t matter. She refused to give a full refund.

Jessica is a life saver! Highly recommend

We are so happy we came across Jessica's services because she helped our dream wedding become a reality. We initially discovered Bonafide Events when sourcing hair styling services in the London/Stratford area. I wasn't looking for anything extensive, but the trouble was finding anyone willing to offer services for just two hairstyles over Canada Day weekend in a remote area. Luckily, Jessica offered a custom package which included Coordination services fit for our event along with hairstyling. Jessica is one of the more organized people I've met in this industry and you can tell she's passionate about what she does. Our wedding was more complex than most, where we sourced all of our vendors ourselves and had to make sure all the various little puzzle pieces fit together. Jessica ran the show without a hitch and even surprised us with decor that helped make our vision come to life. Would gladly recommend!!!
