My Story

London Ontario Event Planner

Hello! I'm Jessica Stacey and I am the Owner and Planner behind Bonafide Events Studio. I come from a family of celebrators and ever since I was a little girl, my family has been celebrating all of our milestones and creating special experiences for everyone to enjoy. 


I started Bonafide Events in 2013 as a way to carry on our family tradition as well as an outlet to share my passion about celebrating all life’s moments. From business success to love stories, all of the events in our life matter, all of them have a purpose and all of them deserve to be shared.  


I never thought I would become an Entrepreneur but a series of life experiences and career decisions lead me to this point. I graduated from Brock University in 2010 with a B.A. in Sociology. I went on to study Event Planning at Mohawk College and graduated with a diploma in Event Management: Meetings and Conventions in 2011. In 2012, I became a Certified Wedding Coordinator with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada. I take event planning pretty seriously and although I make the planning process super fun for my clients you can rest assured knowing that you are hiring a knowledgeable professional.

Aside from the technicalities, if we are going to be working together you need to know that I easily get excited about lists, timelines and floor plans. I love to spend time with my big fat Guyanese/Trinidadian/European/Canadian Family, dancing, drinking tea and trying new foods. In my spare time, you'll find me sewing, antique hunting with my husband Scott, travelling or working on our new home together. 

I love that events can be used as an outlet to share our experiences and bring us together. In my opinion, that is what this life is all about. Bonafide Events Studio is truly an extension of my family, who I am and who I will always be. I would love to meet you, hear about your story and celebrate your special moment with a custom created event.
