Josh and Carley
We found Bill Macdonald on the All seasons website and had a wonderful experience. Based out of saltspring, he took the ferry to meet us in Victoria on fairly short notice and was very warm and accommodating, answering all our questions both in person and by email and accepted changes to the wedding script with no issues. He did a great job on the wedding day, was very prepared and stayed a bit to talk with our guests even though he had a ferry to catch. We are very glad and feel privileged to have had him marry us, and highly recommend him. He also has an amazing voice with a certain gravitas that all our guests were impressed by. Thank you again Bill! Josh and Carley August 2019

Bill MacDonald was great to work with and he conducted the service extremely well. He helped to made our vows meaningful and special to us. This is a great service. We had booked another officiant on our own and were left stranded when he cancelled without explanation. All Seasons stepped in and found the perfect officiant for our wedding. Thank you!

Dustin and Arran
Dustin and I were married in the summer of 2017 at Cattle Point (Victoria, BC) by Mr. Bill MacDonald. You could not meet kinder or more agreeable man. My husband and I both desired a simple ceremony that reflected our love of nature and allowed us to share this intimate moment with our closest family and friends. Bill took the time to get to know us a present us with ideas and options. He was very open to our desires (including our wish to have Shilo - the Golden Retriever - be our ring bearer) and incredibly flexible. When he sent us the draft of our ceremony, the words he chose brought me to tears. Bill preforms weddings for all the right reasons; he wants to share in and give something beautiful back to this world. Dustin and Arran

Brittany & Thomas
Bill MacDonald gave us very very good guidance on making our ceremony personal and about us. He was so thorough and knowledgeable about everything! so many of our guests and family members came up to us and mentioned how great he was. He was SO KIND to let us borrow the dish to drink the traditional whiskey out of. Now my husband is going to go purchase one so thanks for that Bill :) If we could do the day all over again we would and we would for sure have Bill marry us again.

Bill MacDonald was awesome to work with and really wanted to make sure our ceremony was unique to us. The whole experience was excellent. We had so many compliments on the genuine way our ceremony reflected our love and our relationship which for us was what really mattered in a ceremony.

We had our wedding in Victoria BC this past weekend and Bill McDonald was such a pleasure to work with. He helped make the experience incredible. I would highly recommend him to be the officiant at anyones wedding. Thanks so much Bill!
