Marriage is exciting and sacred and the wedding should express that.
The biggest complaint about weddings is that they are BORING! The second biggest complaint about weddings is that they are BORING! Weddings are meant to be a celebration and not a funeral with those you love! An event to be remembered throughout your marriage together with love and laughter.
I am passionate about marriage and family. And I love serving couples on their special day to help reduce the stress and create the ceremony they envision. One that is personal, memorable, unique, and fun. I don’t just care about your ceremony, I care about you!
I would love to meet with you or a free consultation and can ensure that you and your guests won’t feel like they are at “just another wedding”. I look forward to connecting with you!
I grew up in the Middle East (by that I mean Ontario) and have currently spent half of my life residing in the beautiful city of Calgary.
I graduated with college and university degrees in counseling, theology and leadership. I am also a certified Life Coach and ordained to perform weddings in Alberta.
I will help you create a wedding celebration that is unique to you and your personal love story. After all no two people are alike, nor should two wedding ceremonies be similar!
Family is everything! With a house full of girls, it really makes a man out of you, but I love it.

What couples are saying
Brad Brownell was amazing and integral in maintaining the smooth 'flow' of the ceremony. He was extremely courteous and friendly to all of our guests. Many wedding ceremonies can be boring but Brad brought exuberance and tactfully made the crowd laugh and cheer which can be difficult to achieve. Without exception Brad's quality of service was exceptional. He catered to every need we had during the ceremony and we never felt pressured or stressed. We would recommend Brad as an Officiant for any ceremony. Look no further than to the services of Brad Brownell! Thank you Brad!

Our wedding ceremony was amazing and we wouldn’t change a thing. After 12 years together it feels great to make it “official” and we can’t thank Brad enough for officiating our ceremony. Thank you for your kindness and direction during the rehearsal and the ceremony. Your attention to detail was amazing and you were great at making sure everyone knew what was expected and what to expect…and you kept us on track. Thank you again for everything!!!

Brad Brownell’s professionalism was communicated with clarity throughout our wedding ceremony. He is a clear and coherent speaker who we would recommend to any couple looking for an outstanding officiant to direct and guide their ceremony. We are grateful to have Brad officiate our ceremony and for anyone who wants the true meaning of marriage communicated to their friends and family, Brad would definitely be the guy you want to work with!

Our wedding ceremony was great! We received a lot of positive feedback from our families about how organized Brad Brownell of Enduring Promises was at the rehearsal and ceremony - and our families really appreciated that. From the perspective of the Bride and Groom, we wouldn't have changed a thing. Our officiant, Brad did a great job! We found things organized, calm, and lovely. We also really appreciated the message Brad shared during our ceremony. Brad also contributed a unique idea about taking a group photo at the end of the ceremony with all our guests. This was a great idea, and something that we had not previously considered. We can't wait to see this particular photo when we receive our photos. We will definitely recommend Brad and Enduring Promises to couples looking for a professional and caring person to officiate their wedding.

Bradley Brownell performed our wedding ceremony and was everything we could've hoped for and more! We had a close friend perform the ceremony with Brad guiding him through the process and assisting him in preparing. Brad ensured the ceremony was perfect and guided us seamlessly through the entire process. We would highly recommend! Thank-you again Enduring Promises for providing a level of professionalism and care that exceeded our highest expectations!

My husband and I were lucky to work with Brad & Enduring Promises for our wedding on July 28, 2018. I met Brad at the Bridal Expo in September 2017 & instantly wanted him as our officiant! Brad was amazing throughout the entire process!! He was always responsive to emails and any questions we had during the entire process. We highly recommend Brad & Enduring Promises both for your officiating needs!

We met Brad Brownell almost 2 years ago at the spring bridal fair in Calgary. In the few minutes talking to him and his co-officiant that day I knew this company was the one who we would source for our wedding. I contacted them soon after and they matched us with Brad Brownell and we are so happy they choose him. He was perfect in every way from guiding us through the initial building, using their online console, of our ceremony to being available for any questions we may have. The condole is extremally easy to use and has a lot of suggestions for speeches etc. He added a light hearted aspect to the ceremony that guest talked about days afterwards, we were even asked by a guest the name of the company as they liked him so much they are considering Enduring Promises when they get married next year. He more than eased our nervousness during the rehearsal and made sure we knew it was ok to forget some steps as he would be right there to guide us. Brad felt and feels like a life long friend who helped send our ceremony over the top. If there was a 100/10 that is what we would rate him and Enduring Promises.
