INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Enduring Promises has Officiated wedding ceremonies at banquet halls, in provincial and city parks, residential backyards and on harbour boat cruises. You name the place, and it's more than likely that we have Officiated a ceremony there. We will do everything possible to accommodate your venue request.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Unless requested otherwise, our Officiants always wear a dark business suit.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes! As Enduring Promises helps to build your ceremony from the ground up, we do not have any pre-scripted ceremonies. Therefore, we are extremely flexible regarding the wording of your ceremony...including your vows.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! The Enduring Promises online template offers couples over 40 different vows to use as a bases from which to write their personal vows to one another.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Although we offer over 25 different readings to choose from, our template allows you to upload any reading you would like to included in your ceremony. When it comes to creating your ceremony, there are no limitations with our online wedding template.
How long are your ceremonies?
As you are the ones that are creating your ceremony, you choose what you want to include, therefore the length will vary with each couple. Based on the couple's vision for their ceremony, it could last from 10 to 45 minutes, maybe longer depending on the couple's personalities and desires.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, that's up to the couple.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes! Couples spend a considerable amount of money and time preparing for their Special Day and therefore, we encourage couples to consider a rehearsal to "work out the bugs". Sometimes a rehearsal is not necessary, but if you do want us to lead your rehearsal, we'll be there!

We just got married 4 days ago and were lucky enough to have booked Jim Giles to be our officiant. Right from our first meeting with him Jim was professional, personable and a perfect fit for our wedding.

The online dashboard made it so easy for us to customize our perfect ceremony and even gave us some some unique ideas that we hadn't even thought of.

On the day of our wedding Jim was so happy to be there and did an excellent job of calming my nerves... even adding some humor to our ceremony and making it uniquely ours.

We completely enjoyed working with Jim and couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

Thank you so much Jim!

Hi Kristi and Norm,

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your celebration at the Galt Golf and Country Club.

Kristi, your tenderness and love for Norm was written on your face as your dad escorted you down the aisle and as you spoke your vows to Norm.

Norm, your love for Kristi was clearly evident in every word you spoke and gesture you made. When I saw the look in your eyes when you first saw Kristi, I knew you are a couple that are meant to be together.

May your marriage be blessed with peace, prosperity and joy. ~ Jim

My husband Clive and I were lucky enough to connect with Jim Emerson from Enduring Promises after deciding that a religious ceremony was not for us. We were both nervous about this decisions, but after meeting with Jim for a consultation were he took us through their full online planning process and he even spent over an hour with us discussing the different ideas he had seen and how we could still have a very beautiful, sincere and personalized wedding without it taking place in a church. We were completely sold after this meeting and enjoyed the process of creating our own ceremony that was unique to us. With this planning tool you can do as much or as little of the wording as you like and this all comes with your wedding package (which by the way is very affordable).

The day of the wedding Jim was amazing. He was kind to all of the guests and had everyone excited before the ceremony had even began. Jim spoke beautifully and brought true emotion into his words. He kindly prompted us throughout the ceremony and gave us kind words of encouragement as the ceremony went on. You can tell that this is truly a calling for Jim and not just a job. We were lucky enough to stumble upon Jim for our wedding, so after reading this don't be silly enough to miss out on having him officiate your wedding :)

Thanks Jim!

Hi Rachel and Clive

Following your ceremony, several of your guests came up to me to say how much they enjoyed the unique and personal nature of the ceremony you created. One gentleman informed me that your ceremony was the most meaning wedding ceremony he had aver attended.

Presenting your fathers with a special engraved pen when they came forward to sign as your witnesses and the gift of a necklace to your mothers in appreciation of their love and support over the years was truly a magical moment that was not lost on your guests - there wasn't a dry eye in the venue!

Atlantis proved a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony, which your guests will no doubt remember for many years to come.

May I wish you continued love and happiness as you begin your married life. ~ Jim

Jim Emerson exceeded our expectations and made us feel very at ease and took away any stresses or nerves we may have had. He worked exceptionally well with our wedding planner, interacted with our wedding party and parents - at the Rehearsal and Wedding. Our ceremony was memorable and the personal touches Jim suggested were appreciated. We appreciated Jim's suggestions and ideas and that he didn't push his own agenda upon us, rather emphasized this was our day and encouraged us to do what we thought was fitting for our Ceremony. Always open to feedback and comments, Jim made sure we were happy with the direction we were going. The Wedding Console was an absolute dream for us and helped us and feel confident about building our Ceremony together. It was super easy to use & well organized. We liked the review process and felt very prepared in this important aspect of our wedding planning. Jim guided and consulted with us throughout each stage of building our ceremony narrative.

Enduring Promises was excellent to work with and upon our first consult with Jim, we felt like we were in the right hands working together. Any interactions we had with Jim, reaffirmed we had made the right decision. Jim in particular was perfect for us and we felt a connection throughout the process up. We saw Jim as our guide / wedding ceremony mentor & friend. We would recommend Enduring Promises, particularly Jim Emerson to any couple wishing to find a special Officiant who is professional, experienced, personable and has a warm & genuine character.

My husband and I are a mixed culture and religion couple. We decided to have a non-denominational wedding and were referred to Mike Van Slingerland by more than one person. Mike embraced us with ease and worked with us to customize a ceremony that fit our personalities and circumstance. On the day of the wedding he arrived early and helped my family to get the banquet hall moving because they were running behind schedule and were disregarding my family and friends. My parents still talk about him to this day.

Our extended families did not know what to expect from a non-denominational ceremony. Mike made the ceremony light hearted and had the whole crowd laughing. He was exactly what we needed and was a big part of making our day so special.

I would highly recommend Enduring Promises/Jim, you can definitely see his passion in marrying two people who were meant to be. Thanks again!

Thank you Enduring Promises for making our day perfect. We chose Belma Vardy as our officiant. She conducted herself with extreme professionalism and a warm heart. Her smile was captivating and put everyone at ease. Belma, you exceeded our expectations. When I had a small breakdown due to a family problem just minutes before my entrance, you gave me the strength and courage to walk down the aisle to meet my beloved groom. We can't thank you enough for your time in helping us create a special day. The template from Enduring Promises was easy to use and meant a lot as we were able to create our day the way we wanted to. It helped us to stay organize for our day as we knew what to expect. We will definitely be recommending you to other couples. Thank you again, Pamela and Sean
