Congratulations on your pending wedding celebration! As a newlywed myself, I am super excited for the adventure that lies ahead of you. I’m a firm believer that your wedding ceremony should be personal, engaging and as memorable for your guests as it will be for you.
I welcome the opportunity to meet to hear your vision for your ceremony and share some ideas that will help create the perfect celebration for your special day – a ceremony that reflects your unique values, culture, hopes and dreams.
I grew up in Newfoundland and moved to Toronto in 2010 to attend university. While I miss the east coast, I have learned to embrace the dynamics of the GTA and the people I have met. After all, I would have never met my wife had I stayed on the Island!
In my down time, you might find me stumbling my way through a new recipe, riding my road bike through Milton, or looking for a sweet deal on Kijiji. I’ve been known to laugh at my own jokes and appreciate finding a new series on Netflix.
I have had many opportunities to speak to large groups on a wide range of topics and find tremendous fulfillment in building relationships with people of all ages and backgrounds. Given my passion for weddings, public speaking and love of people, it would be an absolute joy to be a part of your Special Day.
Favorite things to do: Finding new areas in the GTA to explore with my wife..
Favorite sports: Mixed Martial Arts.
Favourite interests: Food!! In 2016 I tried to eat at every restaurant in Milton. Unfortunately, that goal is still on my bucket list.
Favorite music: Indie Rock.
What couples say about Jordan…
While looking for officiants, we knew we wanted someone who would be able to seamlessly add themselves into the feel of our day. After speaking with Jordan, we knew he was the perfect fit to be our officiant. He was able to lay everything out and answer all our questions in a way that made the whole process feel simple and stress free. We confidently left the ceremony in his hands and were rewarded for that choice. He outlined the whole ceremony for us in a document that included every talking point so we knew exactly what to expect. We were able to add in anything we felt was missing, and he happily changed any wording to make the whole ceremony feel intimate and personal. Whenever we needed guidance, he would offer thoughtful suggestions, examples of how he’s seen things done in the past, and encouragement to go forward with whatever would make us the happiest, regardless of how things are “usually” done. He worked with us until we were completely happy on the final product, making us feel completely comfortable the entire time.
We received so many compliments afterwards on how amazing the ceremony was. Jordan has a way of speaking that makes you feel like you’re his friend, even if you’ve never met him; this gift really translates to any crowd he speaks to. His easy way with words kept our service both emotional and light. We especially appreciated his attention to detail; as an example: during our rehearsal he explained to us that he was going to step to the side to be out of our “first kiss” shot. He is extremely talented in what he does, and all of that was made abundantly evident throughout the whole process. We couldn’t have been happier with our officiant, or with how our wedding day went. We have already, and will continue to, recommend Jordan and Enduring Promises to anyone who is looking for an officiant.

After seeing Jordan officiate our close friends’ wedding, we knew exactly who to call when the time came for us to tie the knot. From the very beginning, he was an absolute pleasure to work with, and went above and beyond to help us create our dream ceremony.
Jordan is a genuine and caring individual; he worked hard to ensure that not only did we have a great wedding day, but that the process leading up to the wedding was as enjoyable and stress free as possible. With his knowledge and attention to detail, he helped direct us through the planning and rehearsal process, and offered some incredible suggestions that we would have never thought of on our own. In addition to this, the Enduring Promises console was easy to use, and allowed us to formulate a ceremony that was meaningful and unique to us.
We cannot recommend Jordan and Enduring Promises enough! Together, they provided us with a wedding ceremony that was better than we could have ever hoped or imagined – and for that we are very thankful!

Jordan greatly contributed to making our wedding day extra special. He was so prepared, and made sure he incorporated our preferences and personalities in every aspect of the ceremony. We are so pleased with our choice to have Jordan marry us!

I can’t say enough about our fantastic officiant, Jordan Harnum, who made our wedding day just that much more special. He was flexible and easy to work with, allowing us to meet via Skype when our schedules didn’t align. He explained the console with clarity and ease, and it was simple to use after that first introduction. My husband and I found the process of choosing readings, vows, opening statements and such from their library enjoyable and we loved that we were able to edit and put our own spin on it. He collaborated beautifully with us and was able to edit our ideas down to a perfect 20 minute ceremony for our guests to enjoy.
The ceremony was beautiful and our guests could not stop complimenting Jordan’s style as an officiant. He was relaxed, personal, and many of them even thought we were friends rather than just clients. He knew exactly when to step aside for photo opportunities and was helpful and gracious in the beginning to set the bridal party up for our procession. He threw jokes in every now and then and really took the time to know Josh and I as people to make the ceremony more personal for us and more enjoyable for our guests.
I can’t say enough about Enduring Promises. We enjoyed our experience working with the console and particularly with Jordan. Anybody looking for an officiant needs to connect with Jordan Harnum ASAP – he is fantastic and the perfect addition to any wedding.
