Bonny Thorne was absolutely amazing! She will instantly put you at ease, and you will know that you have the right person to officiate your wedding. Thank you Bonny! Jason & Bree August 2019
Bonny Thorne exceeded our expectations! We are both South Asian and decided to not have a traditional ceremony and went with an officiant instead. Bonny was so understanding of our culture, customs and our desire to have a fun and engaging ceremony. Bonny had tons of great energy she walked our parents through what to expect as this was new to them and made everyone feel comfortable. We are so pleased with how the service went. She also checked in with us prior to the ceremony which really helped answer some questions we had . The ceremony was filled with laughter and it truly was perfect! Gurpal & Karen August 2019
Thank you so much Bonny we loved having you as part of our special day! Paige & David July 2019

I highly recommend Bonny” Karen & Gurpal August 2019

Bonny Thorne is amazing! We chose her as our officiant after meeting her at a friend's wedding and we loved her easy-going style. She is very thoughtful and kind and funny and made our ceremony short, sweet and perfectly suited to us. She has a great smile and was great at herding cats (our families) in a professional yet very nice way. We highly recommend her - the passion she has for what she does really shines through and will be a great addition to your special day!” Kirsten & Rio June 2019

Bonny was amazing right from the start! She was always there to answer any questions whether it be email, text, or phone call. She was so fun, easy going, kind, just perfect and we made our day the best day ever. I couldn't have asked for a better person to marry my husband and I! The connection I felt with her made that day that much more meaningful and I feel we have a new friendship! I highly recommend Bonny! Morgan & Tanner
Bonny was professional but warm and welcoming right from the start. The first day we met her we went for coffee and it honestly felt like we’d known her for years. Bonny made the process seamless as well and recommended ideas we would have not thought of. Bonny was very adamant about the wedding being the way we wanted it and personalized to the two of us.
Thank you so much for your eloquent and beautiful ceremony. I wish we would of have snapped a photo with you before we were whisked away for group shots, but I will never forget your beautiful words and calming demeanor!! Thank you!
Bonny was our officiant and we couldn't have asked for a better person. She was so fun and easy going, a calming influence when we were very nervous. Bonny would call and check up just to see how we were doing and if we had any questions or concerns. It was such a pleasure having you be part of our special day. Thank you so so much Bonny!
Bonny did such a wonderful job officiating our wedding. She really took away all the stress from us and made sure our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be. She helped keep us calm and relaxed, so we could really just enjoy ourselves. We couldn’t of been happier
Hi Bonny thank you for everything!! The day was absolutely beautiful and you were amazing! So many compliments on how the ceremony was and exactly how we wanted it! Bryan and I thank you so much ☺️☺️💕
Bonny, from the very beginning of showing interest in her as our officiant, was very enthusiastic and open about what she offered. She shared ideas and made it her priority to make our day go exactly how we envisioned. She provided constant support via email, phone calls and texts not only to discuss details, but also to ensure we generally were making it through all the planning! Bonny genuinely cared about our special day and us as people, and it showed in every aspect of our transactions. Our family and friends also had such warm and lovely things to say about the ceremony Bonny put together and about her herself - I believe they may have wanted to adopt her! Bottom line, Bonny is amazing, and we feel so blessed to have had her enter our lives and make our most memorable day that much more special!
Dear Bonny (Thorne), thank you so much for all your help and expertise in making our wedding ceremony unforgettable. When we contacted you through allseasonsweddings.com we were happy to find someone local to Kelowna and close to our venue. Being out of town, from Kamloops, we were happy with how open the communication was over phone and e-mail. We never worried about our ceremony leading up to the big day because we knew it was in very capable hands. Thank you for all the support and love. We could never thank you enough for the amazing experience you provided us. Lots of love from Dylan and Chelsea

I think that’s pretty special. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.
It means the world to us to have had you Bonny (Thorne) as the officiant for our wedding! Gratitude for making our wedding so absolutely divine! You were awesome and we loved the special intimacy you created, just because of who you are. We knew we were in good hands!
