A Little Bit About me ….

I am a licensed wedding officiant in the Province of Ontario and have been officiating weddings since 2014. It would be an honour to be a part of your story of love and serve you on your wedding day.

My Personal Story ….

I was born in England and moved to Canada as a toddler (Sorry, I don’t have an accent, lol). Although Canadian raised, my home life was very much English. I lived in Oshawa for 9 years but my family settled in Windsor, which I consider my hometown. Since then I’ve lived in Georgian Triangle, Niagara region, and now live in Corunna. Having grown up in two cities, I would have never thought the small town life would have been for me, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Plus, Ontario’s Blue Coast is pretty amazing!

My Family ….

I met wife and best friend in 2010. Things moved quickly for us. We started dating right away. 6 months later we were engaged. 7 months after that we were married. Since then, we’ve welcomed 4 beautiful and energetic children into our love story. We also have the best dog ever, Georgia; everyone who meets her, loves her. And a large lovable cat that loves our family but hates everyone else. 🙂

My Life Experience ….

All my adult life I’ve served in non-profit community (from soup kitchens to overseas humanitarian aid in Dominican Republic). I worked as PSW for a number of years in group homes with high-needs individuals. For over a decade I worked as a youth coordinator providing mentoring and programming in a local church. Most recently I serve as a spiritual director and leader in my community.

My Interests & Passions ….

I love making memories with my family. We love to be outdoors adventuring together. In my spare time, I enjoy reading a good book, exercising, growing my own food in my backyard homestead, or relaxing to a good movie.

Why Choose Enduring Promises?

What couples are saying

When I met my husband, we decided to marry as soon as possible, as we are seniors. My only choice was Carl to officiate, as we had met 3 years previously, and my husband agreed wholeheartedly. Not only was the ceremony tasteful due to Carl’s words, but he also assisted us in securing our venue. I am so thankful for this lovely memory.

Carl was a great person to work with as we planned for our special day. From the long distance meetings on zoom to the day before rehearsal, and day of, Carl was on time, very flexible and had a kind heart to making our day very special. We would highly recommend him and his loving skills to serve couples on their big day. My husband has said "he was a very diligent, dedicated and hardworking man. The best choice to officiate for our wedding." Thank you Carl from the both of us!
