Ira Carty

Here’s a little bit about me…..

I look forward to helping you create a ceremony that is uniquely yours and that will serve as a gift to your family and friends.


I feel blessed to have been born on a beautiful twin island state in the Caribbean known as Antigua and Barbuda; a true gem of the Caribbean islands, famous for its 365 white sand beaches.   

I have five brothers and one sister, most of whom reside in the US. We played cricket and soccer growing up.  Even though I don’t watch or play soccer as much, my favorite soccer Team still remains Manchester United.

I am married to Tricia-Ann, a Real-Estate Lawyer and we have a six-year-old son, Josiah and reside in Mississauga.  

Most people would describe me as having a laid back and easy going personality and a person with an infectious smile. 


I immigrated to Canada in 2000 as an international student to complete my Studies at Tyndale University College and Seminary and after graduating in 2005 I stayed.

I have served the community in the non-profit sector as well as Senior Guidance Counselor at a Private International High School and I am also currently an ESL instructor.

I am licensed to Officiate wedding ceremonies in the province of Ontario.


Interacting with people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.

Teaching, mentoring and helping couples build strong marriages and families.

For fun

I’m an avid sports fan, especially soccer (Manchester United) and cricket (West Indies).

I enjoy reading, listening to most genres of music (from classical to jazz) and travelling.

Why Choose Enduring Promises?

What couples are saying

Words cannot describe how incredible you were at the ceremony for our wedding. Everyone had nothing but great things to say about you all night! You made our day so special and we just want to thank you for everything.
Sarah and Julian

It was an honour and a pleasure for us to have you to share this moment with us, and to pronounce us husband and wife. Words can’t describe how grateful we are for all the help and care that you provided. Our friends and family absolutely LOVED your speech, and you really were the highlight of the whole wedding. Thank you again for everything!

Ira carty was our officiate. He was so amazing and supportive throughout the entire process. Everyone LOVED him at the ceremony, he fit in perfectly with the families, made the ceremony joyful and pleasant. We and our family could not say enough great things about him. Pick this guy if you want your wedding to be a hit!
