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
Lauren & Seth
Joan Bruce-Nibogie was excellent. Above what I expected. Excellent service from the staff to the officiant. I expected high level of service and was pleasant that the service and officiant surpassed my expectations. Thank you for the great service and surpassing my expectations. 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.

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

Luc's one of our most experienced wedding officiants. Luc is a true 'people person', flexible and open-minded, with a love for life and all that is true. Whether what you have planned is a classical wedding, or a relaxed and laid back one; whether you wish to have your ceremony in French, English or Spanish, it will be a true pleasure for Luc to perform your wedding. Please note. Always check his availability as Luc has had to reduce his availability for weddings. He now spends much of his free time doing charitable work in developing countries. Luc is licenced both in Ontario and Quebec.
Luc Despatis more than met our expectations - he surpassed them! Luc was great at answering questions when we were looking at putting together our program and creating our own personable ceremony for the big day. He was prompt at getting back to us and a good communicator in letting us know when he would be out of town in case we needed to reach him. We couldn't have put a program together and ran a ceremony as smoothly without him. Luc Issa really helpful and super friendly! Thank you, Luc for officiating our wedding and helping us putting together the ceremony!
Andrew & Tharie
Luc Despatis was fantastic - friendly and organized right from the start! We wanted something a little different for our blended family and Luc was open to all our ideas and provided wonderful suggestions. Whenever Patrick and I talk about the ceremony we always talk about how calming Luc was - he was so professional but laughed with us when it was needed!! We are so happy we chose him because we couldn't imagine having someone else marry us. He was perfectly suited! Thank you Luc, thank you for making sure our incredibly wonderful day got off to such a great start. Merci!!
Josee & Patrick
Nik & I wanted to thank Luc Despatis again for such a great ceremony. We both liked that it was sort of casual, relaxed, and fun which he made happen. Luc is very good at what he does and I will highly recommend him to any of my friends.

Luc Despatis was amazing. He made us feel so comfortable, he smiled with us. I felt like he was one of our family members. He helped the groom calmed down before the bride arrived.

Margaret McDonald exceeded our expectations! Even before the wedding she made every effort to provide us with guidance about what to expect, what she needed from us, and how the ceremony would be conducted. The day of the ceremony, she was dressed beautifully and conducted the ceremony professionally and in a manner that was genuine, friendly, and open. All of our guests commented how much they thought the Officiant looked and how she interacted with our guests. We have nothing but favourable things to say about Margaret. She was super duper! We would not hesitate in recommending All Seasons Weddings to others. The staff were very professional and helped us to navigate unfamiliar territory. Bravo to Margaret and to All Seasons Weddings.
Dwayne and Scott
Lorraine Cowan was amazing! You can really tell she enjoys her role. Her energy and flexibility was appreciated for our special day. Would highly recommend Lorraine.
Cora and David
Matthew, I just wanted to thank you, and All Seasons Weddings for saving the day, and allowing me to finally call Brandi wife. Your enthusiasm and positivity was vital in helping everyone reset, and stay calm. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant, and we'll surely be referring my peers (especially my sister, who was one of the bridesmaids, got engaged last week!) to anyone looking for an upbeat, and jubilant officiant. Thank you so very very much. Best regards,
Chris and Bradi
Jennifer was friendly, nice, and easy to work with. She performed the custom ceremony admirably and made sure that everyone knew what they were doing. The All Seasons Weddings office staff helped us find an officiant quickly and efficiently. I was glad that we were able to custom fit our ceremony for our wishes. Thank you Jennifer for your contribution to our day.
Carolynn and Christopher
Hi Carol (Cousineau), I just wanted to extend a huge Thank You to you, for performing such a beautiful ceremony for our wedding. You were so fantastic and patient when it came to the whole planning process, and when it came to leading our wedding party through the whole rehearsal process. The actual execution of the real ceremony itself was better than we both imagined it ever could be. We both truly felt that it reflected us and our personalities to a tee, and it felt truly authentic. Many people came up to us afterwards and told us that it was one of the most beautiful and touching ceremonies they had seen, and people specifically commented on how wonderful an officiant you were. Thank you so very much for helping to make our Wedding Day so special and meaningful. I hope to see you at another wedding down the road! Jesse and Justin
Jesse and Justin :)
Thank you for being part of our ceremony. Your kind words and warm spirit made our day that much more special. We wish you a lifetime of happiness where you continue to bring joy to many other couples. Warmest wishes,
Melanie and Shuhib
