Hello Rev. Campbell, We wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for a beautiful and very heartfelt ceremony. Our wedding day was that much more special having you as our minister and our family and friends commented on the warm and welcoming atmosphere that day. We will always look back fondly on our wedding day and feel truly blessed for everyone there who helped to make it a most memorable event. It stands alongside the birth of our 2 boys as one of our most treasured days. We will be happily recommending you to any of our friends who are planning their own weddings or looking to renew their wedding vows. All the best, Lisa and Corey (and Ryder and Jack)
Lisa and Corey
Thank you so much Robert Campbell for making this experience above and beyond our expectations. We are over-joyed that we were recommended to you, and we had an amazing wedding day thanks to you. Our meeting was extremely successful and informative, On top of which you were fast at responding to emails. We are grateful for being open minded to our family situations, and being honest about whether or not you were necessary for the rehearsal ceremony. Everyone (ourselves included) was extremely impressed with your clear, strong voice, and sense of humour. Thank you so much for everything!!
Jennifer & David
Kevin and I want to thank you for the tremendous job Rob Campbell did at our wedding on Friday night. You were wonderful and it was just what we wanted the ceremony to be. Family and friends commented on how great you were as well. You also made the vows very easy for us as we were extremely nervous that day. We were sure we were going to say something incorrectly. We thank you for that and for making us smile during the ceremony.Thank you so much again Rob! You made a special day that much more special.
Kirsten and Kevin
Rob Campbell, we wanted to write a note of thank you and gratitude for the wonderful wedding ceremony you performed for us. You went out of your way inviting us into your home and helping us come up with the perfect wedding ceremony. It was sometimes difficult planning a wedding from so many miles away however you made things easy for us. Thank you for being extremely flexible, professional, punctual and for making us feel so relaxed. The readings you read and the blessing you gave us was wonderful, we will cherish our special day for the rest of our days. .
Krista and John
Rob Campbell created just the right atmosphere for us, he kept it fun overall yet held the ceremony with the respect and importance that marriage deserves. The rehearsal was critical for us to walk through the parts. In some ways the ceremony was also a bit of a performance for our 200 guests since we had little kids and flower girls etc., and Rob helped us lay out the choreography. This then helped us be comfortable in our bride, groom and bridal party roles in order that we could focus on being in the moment. We enjoyed it, and it was the highlight of our day, which is a perfect start to our marriage. Thanks again Rob.
Stephanie & James
Rob Campbell was fantastic and I really don't think we could have asked for more. He was accommodating and understanding with the confusions and paperwork issues we had before the wedding, he adapted his ceremony to meet both of our different wants and needs and performed brilliantly on the day of the ceremony. Rob brought a sense of humour and of joy to the ceremony without sacrificing any of the sancitiy and dignity one would expect from a wedding.
Katherine & Allan
Darcy and I wanted to once again express our sincere thank you for marrying us. We could not have imagined anyone else doing it.

Thank you thank you thank you!!! Hope all is well with you.

Thank you again for everything. Louise and Dave
Louise and Dave
I wanted to let you know that both Alen and myself were so pleased with our ceremony this past weekend. You would not believe the amazing comments we received about you as our officiant and what an amazing job you did. I wanted to thank you again for walking us through that crazy day as both Alen and I were extremely nervous. You were the highlight our of wedding day and I couldn't thank you enough. Also thank your wife for her assistance in writing up the ceremony documents, the two of you make a great team.
Rhianne and Alen
Rev. Rob Campbell officiated our wedding at Strathmere Estate, and it was everything we could of dreamed of in a wedding. He was delightfully funny, commanding presence even with no microphone, his readings that we selected with him prior summed both of us exactly. The delivery and poise of his speech in officiating a ceremony is second to none. I would highly recommend him as your first choice for an officiant as he delivers exceptionally!!!!

Hello! We had our wedding on September 12th, 2015 and we wanted to thank All Seasons Weddings and specifically Kathleen Everett for making our day absolutely perfect! Kathleen was such a pleasure to work with. She was warm, supportive, helpful and witty! She made the process clear and easy for us, and performed our ceremony beautifully. We highly recommend using All Seasons and having Kathleen be a part of your big day! Thanks!! Melanie and Trevor
Kathleen Everett was excellent. Even family complimented us on how she was a perfect fit with our celebration. Our ceremony was perfect and it reflected everything about who we are. Kathleen was the perfect officiant who was able to integrate the unique moments our little girls offered to make our ceremony about "us" as family. We couldn't have dreamed of a better ceremony or day to start our "happily ever after".
Kate & Sean
Kathleen was such an important part of our wedding day. Her support throughout the process was valuable and she performed the ceremony beautifully. Her calm and easygoing nature helped create a lovely and serene atmosphere for our small ceremony. We especially appreciated how Kathleen kept things light at the beginning - it helped to calm our nerves a little bit! We cannot thank her enough!
Manisha and Ben
Thanks Kathleen! We are so happy with how the day turned out. Went by all too fast mind you! But thank you very much for officiating the ceremony for us. So many people commented on how warm the wedding felt and they all attributed that to you! We will definitely keep an eye out for the certificate and be sure to let you know when it gets here. I have attached a couple of pictures for you! We will also be sure to add a testimonial to the website! Thanks again, Hi Kathleen- I realize Christina already sent you a thank you note for your excellent work on our wedding day however I want to send one as well! A sincere thank you for your kindness and being so warm and genuine during our marriage ceremony- you guided us every step of the way in preparation leading up to the exchange of vows and we had a comfort level upon first meeting you that you would be perfect to preside over our ceremony. You made a difference on our special day which we will not soon forget. Thank you so much. Married life is great! Ryan
Christina and Ryan
Dear Kathleen Thank you for your support at the renewal of our wedding vows over Easter weekend. All Seasons Weddings did an excellent job and exceeded our expectations. We appreciated your experience, professionalism, positive communication style, good ideas, and support as we personalized our service. You made it easy to incorporate both our children and parents, making it even more special. Your kindness in wearing the video “necklace” provided footage of the event that our family will always treasure. We loved the chapel. It was the ideal venue for 100 family and friends who joined us. Everyone commented on the amazing woodwork, stained glass and natural light. We recommend All Seasons Weddings. Thanks again
John, Darlene, Grace & Evan
How do WE begin to thank you for being such wonderful woman and allowing us the pleasure of your company? We had a wonderful wedding, with all of our thanks going to you. Our day was filled with sunshine, laughter and a lot of love. We are so happy that you accepted our wedding as you brought us even more enjoyment. I have never felt so comfortable as I did with you. You were like the mother figure to me and I could see the joy in your eyes just being there for us. That day will always be special to us, but more so because we made a new friend, with many happy tears shed and the moments will always be preserved in our hearts. Once again, you are a wonderful woman with a heart filled of pure gold. We thank you for your well wishes and of course for taking on a wild bunch of youngens!! Lots of Love, xoxoxo
Michelle and Andy
Our experience was nothing short of wonderful. We are very greatful to Kathleen for making it OUR special day and not just a cookie cutter wedding - We even have guests telling us how much they enjoyed her! Kathleen went above and beyond!
Sarah and Matthew
Thank you so much for making our day so special and run smoothly. You helped ease any stress/nervousness with your calm and soothing words. You made everyone feel welcome and comfortable Our day went off without a hitch, minus Shawna and I getting hitched that is haha. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.
Chris and Shawna
Dear Kathleen, Thank you so much for performing our wedding ceremony! Your kind demeanour, attention to detail, and encouragement to create the ceremony we dreamed of, was exactly what we were looking for. The blending of two cultures/religions isn't always easy, but we (and even more importantly, our families) were thrilled with how it turned out! We had the perfect day, thanks for being an important part of it! We hope to see you again soon!
Andrea and Amir
Dear Kathleen, Thank you for being such an important part of our special day! We had no idea there would be so many little details to remember, but you made it all so easy - from all of the advice and guidance leading up to the ceremony, to such practical things like having readings and vows printed out and ready for us. Our wedding ceremony is a memory that we will cherish forever, and you were an integral part of it! Attached is a photo of the ceremony taken by one of our wedding guests - you will see that we are all laughing, which reflects the mood of the day. Thanks again!
Stephanie and Steve
We had a GREAT time despite the heat, and you kept everything short and sweet, just like we wanted. But most importantly, you made me feel comfortable, which was what mattered most to me. Thanks to you, the atmosphere was very relaxed and laid back, and for that we are very grateful. We couldn’t have asked for better service! Feel free to use one of our pics on your web site. And no, we would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples. In fact, we already have! Take care and thanks again!
Tammy and Brett
Our officiant Kathleen Everett was wonderful ! Never having met her due to being out of town we were worried but she was the most wonderful woman ever! She made our day unforgettable and had so many great ideas to make our ceremony one of a kind.
Terrie & Stewart
Hi Kathleen I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful job you did officiating our wedding. It was an amazing night, and you were a huge part in helping to make it so wonderful. Nikki and Corey It was a pleasure dealing with you at this special wedding at the Sens game and the ceremony was beautiful. You did a fabulous job! Should there be an opportunity to work together in the future we would love to! Staff from The Bear
Nikki and Corey
Dear Kathleen I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you were the chosen officiant to marry my beautiful daughter Meghan and her partner in life, Melissa. The words that you spoke were full of love, joy, and honesty, sincerity, inclusiveness and so very gentile. You brought many blended families and friends together in a ceremony that was truly intimate. Their wedding day was truly magical, for many reasons and you were able to express and share that emotion with all who were present, as well as with Meghan and Melissa. Your presence and your words made this special day more special than we could have imagined. Thank you from the heart. Kathy (Mother of the Bride) Meghan, Melissa
Meghan and Melissa
Thank YOU so much Kathleen for the beautiful ceremony. We also received many compliments on your behalf. I am not sure how I managed to hold my tears back; I tried to focus on you and Jason only but many others admitted to teary eyes...even some guys!!! We thought that the whole day was perfect :) Over all a stressFREE and fun time when among such wonderful people. The love vibes were very strong indeed. Thank you again for being with us in such a big way on our day! It meant a lot to our family to have you officiate our wedding.
Kim & Jay
Hi Kathleen, Thank you so much for your kind words. Sorry I am a little late getting back to you. Dan and I only just returned from our honeymoon 2 days ago. We had such an incredible time and the wedding was so beautiful. I’m glad our family and friends made you feel so comfortable. You did an excellent job and definitely helped me to feel at ease as well. It was a lovely ceremony and everyone keeps talking about the site and the leaves falling in the background. It was the perfect day for a wedding…that’s for sure…minus the lady bugs and bees. Haha But to be honest, I think it made the ceremony more “us” with all the little laughs, giggles and quirks. Dan forgot to take your advice about not forcing my ring tho. Haha But again…it caused laughter which I think we needed in that moment. You did a great job and were so well spoken. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Dan and I so appreciate it and won’t ever forget it. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family members for their future weddings. Thank you again Kathleen for everything and for your best wishes. We’re so happy. Take care and please keep in touch.
Dan and Jillian
Kathleen (Everett) was an excellent officiant and I would recommend her to anyone. She was professional and efficient, and also friendly and kind in walking us through the process. She made some great suggestions for our ceremony. She was well spoken and clear and we received many compliments on our ceremony. I felt in very good hands and had nothing to worry about leading up to our wedding ceremony!! Thank you so much for everything Kathleen!
Heather & Brady
Hi Kathleen, Apologies for my delay - it has been amazingly a very busy month. I really want to thank you for the time you took with us, initially in getting our ceremony together, as well as the day of. You read such a beautiful ceremony and had such a calming presence for me. I know Andrew also really enjoyed having you there, and so many friends and family have spoken so highly of the ceremony you gave and the humour you put throughout the ceremony. Thank you so much for sharing such a special moment with Andrew and I.
Gabrielle and Andrew
What can we say about you? You were phenomenal, outstanding...words fail. We were so impressed at how you helped the boys unpuzzle the whole attaching the boutonniere issue, to helping our photographer out by getting people to look at the camera, and the ceremony was beautiful, you were lots of fun and we had some good laughs. Wedding days should be fun because it is the beginning of getting to really learn to laugh at life. Kathleen Everett , Kevin and I want to thank you, we loved our wedding day and you being a part of that day made it even better.
Earlana and Kevin
Thank you so much for all of your help with our wedding this past June. Kathleen was amazing! She helped us get everything ready at the rehearsal and she helped keep my husband relaxed during the ceremony even though he was really nervous. I would highly recommend both this service and Kathleen to anyone who is getting married. Everything regarding booking and payment was so easy. Zero complaints. Thank you so much for helping make our special day perfect.
Coreen & Matthew
Dear Kathleen, We cannot put into words the special role that you played in our fairy tale wedding. Many of our guests thought you were part of the wedding guests And you truly fit into our family and friends. You made the ceremony feel like a natural event and neither Len or I were nervous with your calming effect. We hope to be able to cross paths again and will highly recommend you so that we can meet again. Thank you once again, Two very happy people...Betty and Len
Betty and Len
Kathleen went above and beyond. We had quite a huge setback when our first officiant cancelled three weeks before our wedding. My fiancee called, understandably crying, and Kathleen answered. She calmed her down and offered to meet us the very next day. We met her and she went over the entire process, which we wouldn't have been provided with our original officiant. She took over our wedding was wonderful and we don't know what we would have done if she hadn't been so accommodating. She calmed our nerves and let us focus on the wedding, not on who would marry us. We also received plenty of nice comments about her after the wedding. She was charming and super helpful throughout the entire process.
Brandon and Taylor
Thank you so much for all of your help with our wedding this past June. Kathleen was amazing! She helped us get everything ready at the rehersal and she helped keep my husband relaxed during the ceremony even though he was really nervous. I would highly recomend both this service and Kathleen to anyone who is getting married. Everything regarding booking and payment was so easy. Zero complaints. Thank you so much for helping make our special day perfect. ~Coreen and Matthew

André is one of the finest wedding officiants you will find anywhere. He is a resident of Ottawa and believes that your ceremony is the heart of your wedding day and it should be engaging and enjoyable. He would enjoy helping you create a wedding ceremony that reflects your values and love. André would be honoured to perform the wedding of your style, whether traditional, handfasting, interfaith or same gender, in English or French. He is licenced in Ontario and Quebec.
When we first met Andre Fontaine, we knew right away that he was the perfect person to marry us. His warm and friendly personality put us quickly at ease. He is very outgoing and has a lot of great ideas. We wanted our children included in our ceremony, so he suggested ideas that we included that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. We could always depend on Andre for our meetings, for the planning of the ceremony, and for our wedding day. He made us laugh and made us cry. I could not have expected as much from an officiant as we received from him, and could never thank him enough. I strongly recommend Andre for any type of ceremony. Thanks again, Michelle and Frank
Michelle and Frank
Andre Fontaine, we want to thank you for doing such an awesome job as officiant of our wedding. You went above and beyond our expectations!!!! Your Vulcan Star Trek officer outfit was awesome, and the little touches of vulcan ears, eyebrows and hair was icing on the cake. You played the role of Star Trek officer to the T. All our family and friends have not stopped raving about our wedding.
Denny and Enjoli
Hi André! We wanted to write to you, and express our deepest thanks for the wonderful wedding ceremony you put together for us. Many of our guests commented on how lovely and heartfelt the ceremony was. My colleagues at CAMH were especially pleased to see you, too, what a lovely surprise! I have attached some great photos that the photographer, Jean-Paul Cloutier, sent us from the wedding. Our best wishes to you, and happy holidays to you and your family!
Philippe and Heather
Thank Andre Fontaine very much for your help with our wedding. Everything went well for the day. The ceremony was beautiful and we are so glad that my Cantonese speaking mother could somewhat participate. We received good feedback from our guests!
Angelina and Galen
Andre Fontaine was awesome! He was patient and knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us helpful suggestions. Our wedding ceremony had some unexpected delays and Andre did not rush through the ceremony. He made our special day extra special. Thanks Andre! The office staff were very friendly. They explained the process clearly and were quick to respond to any questions we had. Thank you!
Sheila & Jen
Andre Fontaine is a people person and performed our wedding ceremony with tact, grace and flair. He was very helpful, attentive to our needs, made magnificiant suggestions to our concerns and interests. The ceremony reflected well our personalities and was a perfect fit for us. We would strongly recommend Andre as a wedding Officiant. Merci beaucoup André, vous avez fait en sorte que notre journée soit mémorable et parfaite et nous allons nous en souvenir pour toujours! Could not have done it without you.
Lyne & Gerard
Andre Fontaine was extremely attentive to our needs and requirements, and was in constant contact with us via phone and email to ensure that everything was on track. He also accomodated a last minute request to have Randy's daughters play a part in the ceremony and offered different suggestions in that regard. Andre spoke clearly and assertively in both French and English which was very important to us as we were adamant about having a bilingual ceremony. He went above and beyond his responsibilities. We are so glad that we used your services and selected Andre. He really did contribute to making this event memorable for us and everyone else who attended.
Randy & Richard
OMG. Andre Fontaine was so amazing from the first day we met. He is such a wonderful man and Paul and I will be forever thankfull for having met him and for having him perform our ceremony. We now consider him a friend and we will forever hold him near in our hearts and have the fondest of memories of our ceremony. We are so happy and will be forever greatful!
Diane & Paul
Andre Fontaine was absolutely fabulous! He went above and beyond our expectations to make us feel at ease and to personalize our ceremony to us - including special parts for our dog (the ring bearer). He had great suggestions and ideas to match our ceremony to the mood of our wedding and to our personalities. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a wedding officiant.
Andrea & Graham
André Fontaine was warm, friendly and had a good sense of humour. He was easy to deal with and offered some great recommendations for the ceremony. He arrived on time and did a wonderful job despite the many distractions (my daughter was sick and cried through the whole ceremony!). Thank you for making the whole process straight forward and easy. From beginning to end it was a great experience working with your team.
Josee & Jean-Paul
Andre Fontaine was fantastic. Both my husband and myself loved him and thought he was great with us and our guests. He was the friendly voice of authority we wanted, even making a few decisions on his own on my behalf so I wouldn’t have to worry about it. When we reserved our officiant, the office was very helpful and the reservation happened without any hiccups. When meeting with Mr. Fontaine, I warned him about a few of our family dynamics that he needed to keep in mind and he did. He guided us through a seamless rehearsal and was absolutely wonderful at the ceremony. He made sure to say “goodbye” before leaving and he followed through on everything he promised us. Thank you, Mr. Fontaine. You helped make our day perfect!!!
Melissa & Philip
We've said it before and we're going to say it again, thank you for your time and wonderful suggestions which made our day more special (i.e. The warming of the rings and the lovely poem.) We thought everything was great and wouldn't have changed a thing. We had several compliments (from people who've attended their share of weddings) on how well you did. One such compliment was "he's the best officiate we've seen." Many thanks,
Jon & Nicole
Thank you again for officiating our wedding on September 10th. You really did an amazing job, and made it very memorable. Many people even thought you were a member of the family. I'm just sorry that you had to go searching for the DJ! Again, thank you so much!

Hi Robert! Troy and I are finally settled in after returning from our honeymoon, and are catching up on emails. We really wanted to thank you for doing such a great job officiating at our wedding. We are still receiving many compliments on the ceremony - looks like everyone really enjoyed it. We'd also like to thank you for taking the time to join us at the rehearsal - you really helped get rid of some of the jitters by giving us a clear understanding of how the ceremony would proceed. Your mix of professionalism and humour was absolutely perfect! We clearly made the right choice in having you taking part in our special day. Thanks again Robert, and we hope you enjoy the upcoming summer. Salina and Troy

Robert Francis I’m sorry if this seems a bit long but, again, we find it hard to express how extremely happy we are with our entire experience with you, Robert, and with All Seasons. We can’t thank you enough for helping to make our dream day a reality. The ceremony was better than even we could imagine. The rain stopped just in time but even before that, your positive attitude and willingness to proceed no matter what the weather, as long as that is what we wanted, helped bring things together. Again, your willingness to embrace our dream of a hockey-themed wedding, inject the proper amount of humor and your warm personality made our dream wedding a reality. Every member of our families and friends who made the trip remarked how lucky we were to find such a perfect person to perform our wedding ceremony.
John and Cathy
We want to thank Robert Francis for being a wonderful officiant! He was funny and pleasant and helped put everyone at ease. All of our friends and families said that our wedding ceremony was beautiful, loving and memorable and Robert was a part of the reason why it was so lovely. Here are some pictures of us with Robert. Thank you All Seasons Weddings for connecting us with Robert to perform our service!
Charles & Najla
Robert Francis was perfect for us! His personality and humour made everyone laugh. He made sure to include our 11month old in our ceremony...he was wonderful! Thanks Robert!
Carrie-lynn & Eric
Robert Francis was an excellent officiant. He was very helpful in offering suggestions, and listening to what we wanted for our ceremony. His sense of humour also put us at ease, and made the ceremony fun and memorable. He was great to work with!

Neil and Kam
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing. She is a lovely person, was very flexible with our plans, and made us both feel very comfortable throughout. All our family and friends who were present thought she did a great job as well. I had to make several changes back and forth with regards to start time and venue and at no time was I made to feel like it was an inconvenience. Patient, understanding and friendly. Lots of people at the ceremony kept asking how I found Joan because she was soo great, so I explained your service to many already. Your service and help was great! Joan was wonderful! Overall we were very happy with how it all turned out!
Jennifer & Nicholas
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was absolutely phenomenal. She made us feel very comfortable, as if we'd known her for years. Even our guests were asking if she was a friend or family member. Joan's character, charisma and cadence came through with every word she spoke and we will cherish the ceremony she created for us for the rest of our lives. Thank you for providing such a great service! xo

It was a great day and the guest enjoyed themselves.
Alex & Brittany
Joan Bruce-Nibogie exceeded our expectations. She managed to customize the ceremony to reflect us perfectly. The office staff were very responsive. We cannot thank Joan enough. She made our day even more than we could have hoped. We will never forget it.
Shannon & Jason
We were very blessed to find Joan Bruce-Nibogie. From our first conversation on the telephone, to our few face-to-face meetings, she was fantastic. She went beyond our expectations in preparation of our wedding day as well as on the day of. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for your friendly and professional service, as well as Joan's. There are no words to express our experience with Joan. Our Angels were definitely looking our for us when sending her our way!
Christine & James
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing! So friendly and seems to really love being an officiant. Her personality was a perfect fit for us. We couldn't have selected a better officiant. Having Joan as our officiant felt like an old friend was marrying us. We would recommend in a heartbeat. Once we spoke with joan we knew that our choice of officiant was one decision that would not cause us any stress. We were all around impressed with All Seasons Weddings.
Mark & Stephanie
When we started looking for an officiant for our 1940’s Hollywood themed wedding, someone suggested that we contact Joan Bruce - Nibogie Long before the wedding she was able to provide us with a wealth of information. She was always excited but was able to keep me calm on the podium.She asked that Maissa and I send her our vows beforehand so she could print them out for us in case we needed some assistance or forgotten some words. She also printed them out on parchment paper for us to keep as souvenirs of the ceremony.Joan arrived at the venue and made herself part of the family.Joan left no doubt in our minds that she was the perfect person to marry us.
Maissa & JC
From the instant we began working with Joan Bruce-Nibogie, she took the time to get to know Tony and I. Everything from the ceremony to our readings was carefully chosen in order to reflect the two of us. Joan did an excellent job at creating the perfect ceremony for the two of us! Also anytime I had any questions, your staff was always there to answer our questions. Thank you!
Shelley & Tony
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing and my husband and I highly recommend her! We decided on a non-traditional wedding (for sure!) with funny vows and antics that would get all our friends and family laughing! Along with some "lighthearted" vows, about putting up with my back-seat driving, etc, Joan's acting background surely played a part in the FANTASTIC job she did, but it was more her enthusiasm and excitement that really made it great fun for us! We had a fabulous time, we were thrilled with her, and truly believe no one else could have done better! Thanks again Joan!
Trick and Andie
We chose Joan Bruce-Nibogie because of the kind and pleasant smile in her photograph, she did not disapoint. With every interaction with Joan she left us feeling relaxed, confident in our decision to choose her and closer in the relationship we were developing with her. When she arrived the day of the ceremony we greeted her as we did all our family and friends with a big hug and a warm welcome. The ceremony was done professionally and personally. We could not have been happier in our decision to have Joan as our wedding officiant and I would highly recommend her. Thank you Joan.
Keith & Kimberly
Joan Bruce-Nibogie made our wedding that much more special. She took the time to get to know us and she helped create a ceremony that was poignant, kind, funny, and simply beautiful. She is a gifted communicator. Marty and I feel privileged to have had her be part of our wedding. I wish there were words to describe how she reached out and touched the hearts of our friends and family. They are still talking about her and how impressed, how grateful and how happy were are that she delivered our ceremony. From the moment I made contact with All Seasons Weddings I was impressed. The fact that your company treated me with such kindness from the first connection took one worry completely away. I will for sure tell friends and family about the exceptional service I received. Again, thank you!
Sharlene & Marty
We feel so lucky that we found Joan Bruce-Nibogie to lead our ceremony! Her warmth, kindness, and intimacy was deeply appreciated: I can't count the number of people who commented on how moving the ceremony was. Many of our guests seemed to think that Joan had known us for ages, which is, in itself, a testament to the real joy Joan takes in her work. Having her at the front of the room with us put us both at ease and it really felt that she shared our excitement and happiness. Prior to the wedding, Joan was easy to contact and prompt at returning messages. Her ceremony script was relaxed and beautiful and she was happy to accommodate any changes we made to personalize the ceremony. We're so glad we had the chance to work with her and would recommend her without hesitation!
Emily & Steve
We were incredibly fortunate to have Joan Bruce-Nibogie officiate at our wedding. Joan is lovely, warm, and very well organized. She made us feel relaxed and happily excited about our ceremony from the very first moment we met her. She’s someone you feel like you’ve known and trusted forever. Thank you Joan, for all your attention before and after our wedding, and for making our special day all the more special to us.
Catherine & Dustin
Hi Joan (Bruce-Nibogie), We just wanted to say a sincere and heartfelt thank you for your words two Saturdays ago. The ceremony was beautiful and we were able to really take it all in (even the heat!). Our guests were very moved by what you, and we, said and we heard nothing but great comments about your character and sentiment. Some even thought you'd been a long-standing friend or family member; it definitely felt that way (which is amazing for only having met you the night before). We will cherish the package you've made for us, and the day, forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are wonderful!
Lauren & Seth
Joan was our officiant for our wedding on October 2, 2015. We couldn't have been more pleased! In fact we had guests tell me even days afterwards how personal and heartfelt it was and that it did not feel at all like the "ordinary" ceremony - which was exactly what we wanted! When we were planning for our ceremony, Joan provided some suggestions with additions that we could make to our ceremony. One of the suggestions was the passing of the rings for our guests to hold our rings in their hands and bless them with their well wishes for our future. We loved the idea as did our guests! People posted pictures afterwards on social media with our rings in their hands and such and it showed how much a part they really were of our wedding ceremony. We loved that they were more than just guests in attendance but that they really participated in making our day so special. We can't thank Joan enough for the words and messages she said and we honestly felt like a member of our family was marrying us! She is positively lovely! Kristine & Steve Oct 2nd, 2015
Kristine & Steve
Dear Joan (Bruce-Nibogie) Thank you so much for marrying us. It couldn't have gone any better and been so perfectly 'us". I knew you would be the perfect person to perform the ceremony and you were more genuine and it was more beautiful,thanks to you, than we anticipated. I can't believe you cried too! You are so amazing Joan. We can't thank you enough. We could not have picked a better officiant. I am so happy I met you. Thank you from the bottom, top and sides of our hearts! Love Phillipa and Ryan

As your Officiant, Shari is committed to helping you make your wedding ceremony uniquely yours and for it to be memorable for years to come.
Brian and I were soo happy with the way the Ceremony went and Shari Rowan was AMAZING. We can't thank you guys enough for everything.
Mandey & Brian
Shari Rowan was fantastic! Our young son interrupted our ceremony and she worked with it and everything went well... she also gave very useful suggestions to us to help us tailor the ceremony to our family and style :-)
Tanya & Aaron
We found Shari (Rowan) on this website, read some reviews and her bio, and knew that she was the person we wanted to help us celebrate our special day. Once we confirmed that we had booked Shari, we were excited to start telling her our ideas for the ceremony; quite possibly the least traditional one ever! No rings, no traditional vows, no wedding party, no bouquets, the ceremony to take place at our home surrounded by our family and friends - who would have no idea what was happening until it started! She was so open and receptive, and excited to help us celebrate our day. She made it so easy and effortless, we are so happy, and grateful to her for letting us have the ceremony we wanted!!! We had such an amazing day, our ceremony went so well!! We are forever thankful to Shari for making it a truly unforgettable day.
Patricia and Eric
Our wedding was held on Halloween night, the actual service was a surprise to all our guests in attendance. All our guests were dressed in costume, as well, the bride and groom, Shari Rowan was willing to perform our ceremony in costume as well. It was fantastic, very relaxing and so very much rewarding to have one's relation performing our ceremony. This made our special occasion all the more special. Thank you Shari.
Donna & Thomas
Hi Sherri(Rowan). David and I would like to thank you for making our day memorable. We knew the ceremony would be wonderful as you made us feel very comfortable from our first meeting to the endless e-mails to find the right reading for the ceremony, Everything was beautiful and we had many great comments from our guests about the ceremony and about you!
Angela & David
We were very pleased with Shari Rowan. We had a lovely ceremony and it made our special day memorable
Lisa & Stephen
Dear All Seasons Weddings, We would sincerely like to thank you for providing Shari Rowan as the officiant for our wedding. She is extremely professional, caring and just a lovely person all around. Shari made us very comfortable and performed the ceremony beautifully. I would highly recommend her for anyone that requires an officiant for their wedding ceremony.
Sandy & Doug
We loved being able to customize our ceremony a little to make it feel like us. It was an incredibly emotional experience, but Shari Rowan kept us grounded and focused on each other. We also received nothing but lovely comments from our guests, who were very touched by Shari's words and emotion. One thing that especially resonated with everyone (including my husband and I) was the fact that for our vows, Shari just whispered the words to us, so that all our guests heard was our voices. I think that small touch was perfect, not only for our guests to hear the vows as if they came from us alone, but also because of the way it felt for us saying them only to eachother. I've been to weddings where the couple are almost saying the vows to the officiant because they're nervous, and they want to follow the words and respond to them. We loved how personal it felt, yet we didn't have to worry about memorizing!
Jen & Cary
Shari Rowan was wonderful. She even took the time to run around the neighbourhood to ask people to hold off on mowing their lawns for 20 minutes until the ceremony was over. She of course is a very good looking lady and makes the photos even better. Loved her as much for our wedding as I did for my daughters. Thanks so much Shari!
Diane & Garry
Shari Rowan exceeded our expectations. She did an absolutely wonderful job, very professional. She was always able to offer advice and suggestions, and she was very easy to contact when we had questions. As soon as we began contact with her, we felt very comfortable and confident that our ceremony would be perfect, which it was! We would highly recommend Shari!!
Alanna & Adam
Shari Rowan was such a delight! Her guidance and suggestions for our ceremony was extremely helpful. She made us feel at ease throughout the entire process, and her delivery of our ceremony was perfect! We are very happy with her service.
Holly & Mark
Shari Rowan was great.She was very organized and professional and caring. She definitely made us feel like our wedding was important to her. She even wore a coordinating scarf with her suit to tie-in with the wedding party. What a nice touch! Shari was so easy to work with which was a relief when you are planning such an important day. She was very helpful in giving us advice about our ceremony (which we had greatly changed from the template). I would definitely recommend her. She made sure we had everything we needed and was sincere and made a wonderful guide through what could have been a stressful time.
Christine & Brian
Shari Rowan was very helpful and put on a very good service. Every one of our guests really liked how good of a job she did. Would definitely recommend her to everyone... She made our day perfect!

Sue Kellison was fantastic! Sue was professional, and thorough, I would definitely recommend her.
Karen and Brian
Hi Sue (kellison),Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. You did a marvelous job, and we received so many compliments on your behalf.We are sorry we did not have a chance to see you after the ceremony. We were whisked off in the other direction.Thank you for the information on obtaining the official marriage certificate. Once again, thank you SO much.
Jon and Kathryn
Hello Sue Kellison, A very close friend of mine complimented on the wonderful job you did for us. Much of her compliments were of our wording, how expressive you were and how genuine the whole ceremony was. Lorie and I wrote our vows to each other. It was truly something to hear and say our vows. I remember during our meeting with you, you mentioned for us to look at each other and not you. Our emotions took over quite unexpectedly. Those tears of happiness and such deep emotion were extremely powerful. ...Thank you so very much for guiding us.We truly are grateful. It was the best day of our life.Thank You for Sharing Our Day.
Lorie and Rozanna
Sue (Kellison) officiated at our wedding on Saturday, 2 July 2016 at The Courtyard Restaurant. Sue was professional, warm, welcoming and reassuring to both Michael and myself. She communicated clearly before the wedding and it felt like we had known her for years. She clearly explained the procedures and format of the ceremony and during the ceremony, when we both became emotional, Sue reassured us and allowed us time to compose ourselves, she even provided tissue. The most amazing thing about Sue is the way she read the ceremony that we had written. She read it as if it was her own ceremony, with passion, emotion, and beauty. We had a Lord of the Rings Themed ceremony and Sue had to read names of different realms of Middle Earth as well as declare, "Bring forth the rings." She did this with great enthusiasm and created an environment of intimacy, making Mike and I feel as if we were the only ones in the room, but still making our guests feel a part of the ceremony. Many guests complemented us on choosing Sue and asked if she was a friend of ours. We explained that we had met her only once before the ceremony and they were shocked because of the way she made it seem as if our wedding was the most important wedding in the world. Thank you, Sue, for being a part of our wedding and for making it such a beautiful and comfortable ceremony!
Brian and Michael
Sue Kellison was so professional and relaxed, and instantly put our minds at ease. She was incredibly organized, and was very compassionate and gracious. We were very lucky to have her as our officiant as she made our special day even more special.
Laurie & Taylor
Susan Kellison surpassed any of our possible expectations. My brother had had a city hall wedding, and his ceremony was fairly abrupt and unceremonious. Too much legalese. Susan’s ceremony was unexpectedly touching. We called with a last minute request, and Natasha was able to find us an Officiant with only a day’s notice. If any of our friends need such a service, I will obviously pass on heaps of praise for you guys. Thanks.
Erik & Emma
Sue Kellison did a wonderful job on our wedding day and we would definitely recommend her to all our friends and family. She was very well organized and extremely helpful in preparing us for our wedding day. She has a wonderful personality and is very kind and caring. Everyone at our wedding thought our ceremony was very memorable and special and we could not have done it without Sue. She really helped guide us throughout our ceremony and did an amazing job.
Tony and Anabela
Sue Kellison is a very warmhearted person, and she lent a wonderful aspect to our special day. Thank you all for your help to make what could have been a very harrying day, with us both being from out of town, turn into something lovely. Sincerely,
Darrel & Marnie
Sue Kellison was wonderful! So kind, caring and sincere. All of our guests commented on her beautiful words and were very very impressed, as were we.
Gail & Harald
Sue Kellison far exceeded our expectations, she was the perfect match for us. Our ceremony was simply beautiful! Our friends and family loved it as much as we did. We will be sharing some photos with Sue and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am very grateful Sue was able to be with us for this very special day, Thank you to Sue and All Seasons for bringing us together!
Dean & Robin
Sue Kellison was exceptional right from the beginning to end, we are beyond pleased with and grateful she was able to do our ceremony. We are still hearing back from guests on how wonderful our ceremony was. she executed everything perfectly!
Tanya & Jason
We had a wonderful experience with Sue Kellison. She really put us at ease during our first meeting and was very willing to work with us with regards to what we wanted said during our ceremony. We got many compliments about the ceremony! We also really appreciate her advice about what to do regarding obtaining a marriage license.

We had so many compliments on what a great job he did. Doug was a huge part in making our day run smoothly and I would recommend him to everyone I know who is getting married. What a pleasure. Thanks very much! Stephanie and Marc

Lucie & Jodi
Doug Woods went beyond our expectations. His sense of humour was perfect for the ceremony and he was extremely patient when the wedding was delayed.
Alanna & Kevin
You were amazing!!!!! Thank you for making the ceremony amazing!! Everyone loved you and they said you made the ceremony great and it was certainly not boring!! You far reached our expectations and more.
Megan and Robert
Doug Woods was above and beyond what we had hoped for. Anyone who knows us as a couple knows we are not very good at being serious, Doug picked up on that right away and the ceremony was full of humor as is our relationship. We are very happy with our choice and will recommend All Seasons Weddings and Doug whenever we can.
Mallory & Rob
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for marrying us on Saturday. Your sense of humour and ease are what got a very nervous bride through! You are fantastic at what you do. Thanks again.

Dina & Terry
Doug woods was excellent! He was social with all the guests, very reassuring to the wedding party and humorous through out the service! We would highly recommend him to any one!! The staff were also very helpful. They answered all of our questions quite promptly, even on weekends. When we met with any of the staff all were friendly and welcoming. We would like to thank everyone at the Ottawa Wedding Chapel and at All Seasons for their tireless efforts on making our wedding so amazing!! Everything was beautiful and went so smoothly for both the dinner and the wedding! We didn't have any worries all we had to do was enjoy ourselves! Thank you so much!

Laura & Marc
Thank you so much for the amazing ceremony that you put on for Joe and I on Saturday! You went over and beyond what we ever could imagine! Both Joe and I cannot stop talking about how we both felt so at ease during the ceremony and it was definitely because of you. Just when we thought we were going to be overwhelmed with tears, you would lighten it up with a joke, which was exactly what we needed! All of the guests could not stop raving about you and how fantastic you were as well. They were all asking your name and mentioning that they had never been part of a ceremony that was as fun, light and comical as ours! It's for all of this that Joe and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did...you definitely made our ceremony one that we will never ever forget :) THANK YOU!
Ash & Joe

This past Sunday we had our ceremony at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum with the fantastic Jody Haucke as our officiant . Jody was quite simply a dream to have at our wedding. His professionalism, organization, and his eye for aesthetic and placement of our bridal party and our guests helped maximize the uniqueness of our venue. We are truly grateful to have had his unparalleled knowledge at our disposal. Our ceremony was flawless. Jody's articulation and passion in our ceremony was endearing and entertaining. Every line he spoke was delivered with so much care and feeling that our family and friends are still talking about how breathtaking he was as our officiant. We can never thank him enough for everything he has done, because we know that the magic of our wedding would have been a little less without him.
Marie-Eve and Robert
From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed using All Seasons Weddings. We absolutely loved our officiant Jody (Haucke) who made the planning and ceremony an absolute breeze. We would highly recommend this company and this officiant for anyone who wants to enjoy getting married! Olivia & Marcus 09/08/2016
Olivia & Marcus
Jody Haucke was absolutely fantastic, helped us choose the perfect ceremony, and went above and beyond - writing down names of everyone important the day of, coordinating his outfit to our colour scheme, etc. Everyone I have corresponded with so far have been the most prompt and respectful with replying of all the vendors I dealt with. Super friendly!! This service was so helpful to my partner and I. We felt so comfortable being able to see all the officiants' experience or openness to performing same sex ceremonies. An incredible resource for the LGBT+ community.
Sara & Lucie
Jody Haucke was very helpful and was always there to answer any questions we had about the process. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone else.

Ann is a resident of Osgoode. She is fluently bilingual in English and French, and as a Bonacci, she also has a sprinkle of Italian. When Ann is not conducting wedding ceremonies or spending time with her family, she gives back to her community as treasurer for a non-profit group which supports aid to grandmothers in Africa. Ann’s warm energy will put you at ease, and her goal is to make your ceremony memorable. She has a deep respect for other cultures and faiths. Ann is licenced in Ontario and Quebec, and she would be honoured to work with you both to conduct a memorable inter-faith wedding ceremony or a spiritual wedding ceremony of your choosing.
Requesting Ann Bonacci to be the officiant for our wedding was the easiest decision we made during the wedding planning process. She is positive, organized and was insistent that we create a ceremony together that painted a picture of who my husband I are within the union of our marriage. She happily received our many corrections and revisions while offering suggestions and support throughout the creation of our ceremony. An important suggestion which we absolutely agreed with was to request that friends or family members be the ones to perform the readings. We asked two family members who we knew would be comfortable in front of the crowd and who we, more importantly, wanted to be a part of uniting us through our selected readings. On the day of she was flawless, her ability to recite our final script was natural and without a hitch, before we knew it we were sealing it with a kiss and off to dance the night away. I highly recommend Ann’s services as an officiant, she is an amazing woman and will be dedicated fully to you, your fiancé and your special day.
Jenna & Jordan
Hi Ann Thank you so much for yesterday! Our family said that they really loved the ceremony and that you did a great job! Thanks again!

Just a note to say dealing with your services was a wonderful experience. You answered all our questions and made us feel like whatever we wanted you would try and make it the best wedding ever! Ann Bonacci is a wonderful lady - I can't tell you in words how pleased we where with her. At our meeting befor the wedding she was wonderful accommodating and so helpful and by the time we left her we just knew all would go well. She made us fell like she was a real friend. Thank you for every thing, especially Ann. It was a great experience dealing with All Seasons.

From the first minute we met with Brigitte Samson, we knew that she would be the perfect officiant to perform our wedding! She was kind, funny, personable and was able to gauge our personalities right away. Through all our meetings she was knowledgeable, patient and understanding of our stress. She took the time to explain each aspect of the ceremony to us, and gave us the option of reading the ceremony before hand, so we knew what to expect. When we decided to write our own vows she gave us some examples and helpful hints to follow. On the day of the wedding she arrived on time, and looked stunning! She read our crowd very quickly, and even when there were young active toddlers running around during the ceremony she was able to focus on the union she was performing, and kept it fun and entertaining for everyone. We could not be happier with our choice, and highly, HIGHLY recommend Brigitte to perform your wedding. Thanks again so much for being a part of the best day of our life!! Shauna & Sean July 2018

What a pleasure to have Brigitte Samson as our officiant on our special day! She helped us with vows and selection of readings and informed us of the order of the ceremony, relieving much work and angst for us. More than one guest told me they were so impressed with the both the words Brigitte used in the ceremony as well as her calm, pleasant voice. I was so happy she was our officiant and recommend her highly to anyone getting married. Katherine & Ric July 2018

Brigitte Samson was our wedding officiant and day-of wedding coordinator. We were very happy with her services. She was amazing to work with! Every meeting with her was productive. She calmed us and offered solutions when we felt stressed. As an officiant, she worked with us and offered great suggestions for the ceremony. The wedding script she made for us was perfect! The ceremony was beautiful. Prior to the wedding, she offered lots of good tips to help us stay on track and save money. On the big day, she stayed in touch with us to make sure things we were good. She also worked with all the vendors and took care of many things behind the scene so that we got to enjoy the day and didn't need to worry about the details. We highly recommend her services. Thank you for making our big day possible! Huong & Cat May 20, 2017

Brigitte Samson was fantastic! From the first moment we met her we felt very comfortable and confident in having her be an integral part of our wedding day! She was genuinely excited for us and her heart was truly in her delivery of our ceremony. She guided us through the process of the ceremony and its many choices from beginning to end and we heard nothing but wonderful comments about her from our guests. She even provided us with great tips to help us for the big day! We couldn't have found a better choice if we tried! Natasha & Valerio 08/16/2016

If you are looking for a wedding Officiant and wedding planner to take your stress away, please do yourself a favour and connect with Brigitte Samson. Not only is she thorough, prepared, professional and kind; she is also very easy to speak to and thinks of things long before we ever did (if ever!). Brigitte is bilingual and was very proficient dealing with all of our guests in both French and English. Our day was absolutely perfect and we owe so much of that to Brigitte! Thank you so much for everything! Colleen and JJ 06/25/2016

Mike and I are so happy we chose Brigitte (Samson) to be our Officiant. She is so easy going and very professional. She took care of every detail which meant the world to me as a anxious Bride. My worst fear came true when I arrived at my Wedding it started pouring rain. Brigitte had it all taken care of. She had 2 huge umbrellas waiting for us! It was so thoughtful of her, I couldn’t believe it. All of my guests thought the service was beautiful and that she was excellent. My Sister was so impressed she hired her for her Wedding next year. I am so grateful to Brigitte for making our Wedding so special and I am going to recommend her to everyone. Kathi & Mike 07/25/2015

We would recommend Brigitte Samson as your wedding officiant without reservation. We are residents of Ontario, who requested her services in January, for an outdoor ceremony in Quebec in May. Brigitte was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced; she gave us insightful counsel throughout our process, which turned out to be quite challenging. A week before our ceremony, our original destination was closed due to snow. Brigitte helped us pivot. Incredibly, on the day of our ceremony, our second location was closed due to flooding. Brigitte adapted and advised us through all these unforeseen changes; a rudder and guiding light as we navigated our way to a wonderful wedding with warm family memories. Truer words were never spoken! Denis & Barb 05/06/2017

Our beautiful wedding was August 6, 2016....I put much thought and planning into our Day. One of the items that was of great importance to me was the Officiant and their personality, bilingualism and energy they brought! Nicola was fabulous! She quickly understood the "feeling" we wanted in our Ceremony and she understood our sense of humour as well. She was very open to my adaptation of the Ceremony text and our vows. She ensured that she was comfortable with pronunciation of the French text which made the changing back and forth between languages seamless! Our friends and family truly appreciated this special attention to detail! Nicola was as excited as I was in the planning which only made me more excited! Thank you Nicola for your important role in our Day and the laughter and appreciation of tears you shared with us.
Linda & Denis
Thank you for putting up with our last minute craziness! We are very thankful that we had you as our officiant!

Nicola (Wolters) was such a great choice for us and we could not have asked for anything better!! She was very helpful, caring and sweet. We will definitely recommend this company and especially Nicola to anyone we know getting married!
Jodi and Shane
We felt comfortable and at home. The chapel looked beautiful and quaint. With two young granddaughters in attendance, Nicola went above and beyond to occupy them while we did photos. It was lovely. The Ottawa Wedding Chapel staff helpful and supportive. This is a wonderful venue for a wedding. It has character and a peacefulness as well. We would highly recommend.

Mr Micus was always friendly and flexible. He was also really helpful for our ceremony planning.

An elegant alternative to a Ottawa City Hall wedding ceremony. Rent our historic country chapel for your wedding ceremony! A storybook setting of country charm and sophisticated elegance.
Peter Fortier is a very nice man. He made us laugh and comfortable. All of our expectations about the ceremony was filled with joy and happiness. It what not just a 5 minutes ceremony but 30 minutes of laughter and fun!
Dominik and Sylvie
Dearest Brian (Ballinger), We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to the big day, as well as the day of! You were all smiles throughout the whole ceremony and some of our guests even thought you were part of our family because of the smile on your face and your enthusiasm. Our first appointment with you was less business, and more pleasure. You made us feel SO comfortable with the process and made us feel so at ease. We had such an incredible day, and we both feel so honored that you could spend it with us!! I have attached probably one of my favorite photos of the ceremony for you to see what I mean - when we saw your smile in the background, we felt like we caught a VERY special moment :) Thank you SO SO much for everything. You are an absolute pleasure to deal with, and we wish you all the best! Thank you again times a million :)

We feel very fortunate to have met David Moss-Cornett. He put us right at ease as we planned our wedding ceremony.

We thank David for being part of our special day. Angela and Darren

Dear Natasha (St-Jean), Sylvain and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having turned this special day into the best day of our lives. As soon as we met you, we knew you were the officiant for us and that our wedding would be a memorable event in your hands. From the first instant, you showed us that you really wanted to give us the ceremony of our dreams meaning, special, personal, elegant and definitely unique since it was outdoors, in the winter on a beautiful mild and sunny day! You really helped us in personalizing our ceremony while perfectly incorporating both French and English which was important to us. We are very happy and lucky to have found an officiant as personable, cheerful, professional and charismatic as you! We could not have chosen a better officiant than you to marry us! 02/18/2012
Anne and Sylvain
We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the professional and accommodating manner in which Mike O'Callaghan conducted the ceremony for the Young-Whittle marriage. We all agreed we could not have made a better choice. Once again our entire small group was completely impressed with Mike's performance.
Erdine and Michael
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was amazing! So friendly and seems to really love being an officiant. Her personality was a perfect fit for us. We couldn't have selected a better officiant. Having Joan as our officiant felt like an old friend was marrying us. We would recommend in a heartbeat. Once we spoke with joan we knew that our choice of officiant was one decision that would not cause us any stress. We were all around impressed with All Seasons Weddings.
