A little bit about me…
I am a licensed wedding Officiant in the province of Ontario.
My Personal Story:
I was raised by my grandparents and attended my early school years in Berlin, Germany. After arriving in Canada in 1963 I continued my education in Burlington. I graduated from Mohawk College where I studied Medical Technology. I read, write and speak fluent German.
My grandparents provided a loving environment, nurtured and instilled in me the importance of family. As a result, I realize that family and friends hold the most important role in each of our lives.
My Life Experiences:
In the past I have worked as a daycare supervisor, Outpatient lab receptionist and technician. Since 1989 I have been working with the homeless, dealing with crisis situations and intervention, and acting as a personal support worker for seniors. I also lead trauma healing groups
For the past 35 years I have been teaching creative workshops for children, youth & adults. As a public speaker I have been invited to speak at schools, universities, conferences and retreats throughout the world. I have also produced 14 instructional videos.
More about me:
Interests and passions: Dance, music, love dogs and children, mission work, working with Aboriginal People groups in schools and remote villages. Believe it or not, I also enjoy a good game of football and soccer.
Favorite things to do: Spending time with friends and family, participating in sports, attending musical concerts, and enjoying the great outdoors.
Favorite music: Love it all!! Especially ethnic music that is uplifting.
Favorite past times: Reading, traveling and studying languages. I’ve been studying the Turkish language for 3 years and am able to provide Turkish text for ceremonies. I also love ballroom dancing.
Favorite sports: Cycling, kayaking, snowmobiling, boating, hiking, horseback riding and mountain climbing.

What couples are saying
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 situation 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 online Console from Enduring Promises was easy to use and meant a lot as we were able to create our ceremony just 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
Belma Vardy was our Wedding Officiant. Simply put, Belma made our wedding ceremony fantastic.
She is so personable. From the moment we met her, we felt so comfortable speaking with her as she put us at ease. She is a truly genuine person and had some great ideas to help make our ceremony a more enjoyable and personal experience for our family and friends.
All our guests were really impressed with her, especially our parents! We would highly recommend Belma.
Kimberly and Matt
We had Belma Vardy from Enduring Promises as our officiant, and she was brilliant!
We found her very knowledgeable, professional, and attentive to our needs. She is also very organized, such as reminding us to complete Ceremony and vows 10 days prior to the wedding, emailing us to confirm some details, and all the little sticky notes on the license directing the witnesses where to sign!
My relatives praised her service highly as an officiant as they found her very professional and well spoken. Belma is also very affectionate and encouraging during the ceremony. She kept telling us we were doing great! It made us feel very reassured and appreciative.
The ceremony was completed very well and on time. Again, THANK YOU so much Belma, for making our big day so wonderful, successful and stress free. ?

Our experience with enduring promises was absolutely amazing. Belma Vardy officiated our wedding and I highly recommend her. Belma made us feel very much at ease with her knowledge, along with her calm and uplifting precense. This also
made the preparation and delivery of our ceremony magical.
The energy in the room for the ceremony was so up beat and beautiful, and I have to largely thank Belma for this. In preparing for the ceremony Belma was so prepared and her advice helped us not stress and easily enjoy both the planning and our day. The online console was well organized, user friendly, and fun to go through. Enduring Promises was excellent to deal with and made sure the focus was on the enjoyment of our ceremony for all. With the combination of Belma and Enduring Promise you cannot go wrong. Without them both, our ceremony would have been ordinary but with them both it easily became extraordinary. Thank you so much!

Our officiant Belma Vardy was absolutely amazing!! Often reviews are based on a 5⭐️scale, Belma deserves at least 20⭐️!!!! From start to finish we felt comfortable in placing our trust in Belma to guide the ceremony we had created!! The online development platform was fantastic! It gave us some ideas as a starting point, but also allowed us to create a ceremony that was custom to us, add to it, change it and tweak it to perfection! Belma was there throughout to make sure everything was in place and exactly as we wanted it! Her communication and calm nature put us (as well as our two teenage boys that were our wedding party) at absolute ease (throughout the planning process) and her expertise and guidance allowed all of us to enjoy every minute of our special day!! We can't thank Belma enough for all that she did for us! We would definitely recommend Enduring Promises for your officiant(s) without hesitation!!

Belma Vardy truly exceeded our expectations as our wedding officiant! From the moment she first reached out to us, she made us feel at ease and guided us through the entire process start to finish. She took the time to get to know us, and personalized the ceremony in an extra special way by preparing and saying half in German for all our guests that travelled far from Germany to attend our wedding. Her calming presence reduced our stress levels on the big day, she whispered instructions to us the entire time so everything went smoothly and it made the ceremony look absolutely flawless. Belma made our day more enjoyable for everyone involved, and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant. I received so many compliments from my guests about Belma and her wonderful way of speaking and engaging the crowd. The online Ceremony Console was user-friendly and incredibly convenient, allowing us to customize our ceremony to match our vibe. Belma's clear instructions made the process a breeze as she gave us commentary and tips along the way. Working with Enduring Promises was so worth it as they truly make sure everything is all taken care of for you. There is a million other things to worry about on your wedding day, it was so nice to know that the ceremony was completely and professionally taken care of. Thank you, Belma for making our special day so magical. We are so grateful for your expertise, warmth, and dedication and making our wedding ceremony so perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant or company to work with.
