Congratulations on your engagement and your decision to get married!
I have been a licensed wedding officiant for more than 25 years. I have worked with many couples helping them create a wedding ceremony that has been a reflection of their own personalities and values. A sense of humour & being organized are things that seem to come natural to me. I would be honoured to help make your wedding day stress free and memorable.

What couples are saying
We had an amazing wedding day, and our ceremony was perfect. Clark was great at communicating with us as the wedding day approached and he asked questions to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be like. We wanted a simple, yet meaningful ceremony, that would be light-hearted and fun. Clark did just that! He was so accommodating and made sure we got what we wanted. Clark is a confident person, and this made us feel at ease knowing that he had everything under control. We still have people to this day tell us that our Wedding Officiant did such an amazing job. He made sure there was a good balance of humour, and misty-eyed moments, and we couldn’t have chosen a better person to officiate our wedding ceremony.

As soon as my wife and I got engaged we knew our Officiant had to be Clark. We had the pleasure of meeting him previously and knew that his friendly nature and enthusiasm towards life would be the perfect fit for our outdoor wedding. When we started organizing the ceremony Clark was available and willing to answer all the questions we had. His experience helped us feel confident that the ceremony would flow seamlessly from one aspect to the next while still highlighting personal and meaningful moments throughout. During the rehearsal Clark was professional, organized, and helped us articulate our wishes for the day. He was able to uphold the vision we had for our wedding while still considering feedback from others, which, as most people know can be challenging.
Finally, the wedding day came, and again Clark was great. My wife and I could not have envisioned it more perfectly. Clark’s attention to detail combined with his sense of humour made us feel stress-free, made us and our guests laugh all while including a very sentimental, personal, yet brief message. Throughout the remainder of the reception and even days later we had friends and family tell us that Clark’s words could not have suited us any better and how much they enjoyed our ceremony.
From start to finish, Clark did an amazing job and we would highly recommend him to anyone!

Clark Canning was our officiant and he was AMAZING. Completely exceeded our expectations. I felt soooo comfortable and that was exactly what we needed. He made the entire process stress free. Enduring promises was also extremely magnificent to work with. The whole process, which was a huge stressor for me initially, was so easy and FUN! I would highly recommend Enduring Promises 10/10.
Enduring Promises is one of a kind innovation...it's like finding a lake in the desert for us. We were so lost searching officiants in the city database and almost gave up, because it's just impossible to do such research through so many calls until we found Enduring Promises. Just one call solved all my problems. From that point, everything became very simple with high standards and details customed to personal preference. What a wonderful relief for us!
Mr. Clark Canning was such a great officiant! He is so handsome, professional, humorous, whose performance was adding so much charm to our ceremony! Everyone loved him. We enjoyed so much his process with relaxing atmosphere and great manner. In order to have a smooth process, Mr. Clark Canning made sure to have simple and efficient communications before the wedding. His great experience ensured our success! We are forever grateful to have him in our precious wedding memories...and thank you so much again Clark!!

If you’re looking for a wedding officiant, look no further than Clark Canning from Enduring Promises. Clark is professional, speaks well, is organized, and has a calming presence. He’s very supportive and was very helpful throughout the process. We wanted a simple ceremony and our officiant to be someone who spoke like they knew us for many years. Clark was exactly that! We had so many compliments from our wedding guests about Clark and our ceremony!
