A Little Bit About me ….
I am licensed by the government to Officiate wedding ceremonies in Ontario.
My Personal Story ….
I was born in Amsterdam and raised in the Niagara Region where I attended both elementary and high school. I’ve always wanted to help people so the decision to become a minister sort of came naturally to me.
After graduating from Seminary, I went on to serve in various communities in Windsor, Belleville, and in the Durham Region. I loved working with people of all ages—sharing the important moments in their lives.
In 2012, I began a new career course and became a full-time Realtor. I’ve enjoyed great success and have received numerous awards. I’m still helping people achieve their dreams—just in a different way. My success as a Realtor enables me to do another thing I really enjoy—being a Wedding Officiant! I LOVE being a Wedding Officiant! I love meeting new couples, engaging with their families and helping them to create memories to last a lifetime.
My Family ….
I am the proud father of two sons—both of whom I’ve had the privilege of marrying! My youngest son, Christian and his wife, Elyse live in BC and I try to visit as often as I can. My oldest son, Nate and his wife Laura live just 20 minutes away and have given me two Grand-dogs, Mogul and Tito.

What couples are saying
Robert and I want to thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for the simply outstanding job you did officiating our ceremony. We have received a lot of compliments about our wedding from a lot of people, from the decor, to the food, to the music, but NONE can hold a candle to the compliments we have received about our ceremony. While we crafted it, the way you delivered it was nothing short of perfection, and we know that it would not have been the same had we had anyone else speaking.
One of my mother's first cousins is a lawyer, and now deputy judge, and in his youth, performed professionally in Stratford and is one of the finest public speakers any of us knows. The first words out of his mouth when he saw us after the ceremony were "You guys, your officiant just was FANTASTIC, I mean really, REALLY incredible". Believe me when I say that impressing him with a public speaking job so incredibly well done is no small feat, but you absolutely did, and we are so very grateful.
Thank you so much Rob for making the most important part of the most important day of our lives, so incredibly special and memorable.

Rob Brouwer was wonderful. He went out of his way to make sure what he drafted up was just for us, as well as made it as personal as possible. He was professional and well spoken. My guests all commented on how well he was put together. Thanks for making our day so special. :)

We are so very grateful to have had Rob Brouwer as our wedding officiant. From our very first meeting with Rob he put our minds at ease and was so very helpful, friendly and genuine on our special day. Rob was exactly what we'd hoped for in an officiant, and his suggestions and ideas made our ceremony perfect!
My husband and I loved that we were able to personalize our entire ceremony to reflect our love and personalities. Wewill be recommending Enduring Promises, specifically Rob Brouwer, to all our friends and family. Thank you, Rob!
Lisa and Brett
Thank you so much for officiating our wedding! It was great! You were so friendly and warm and helped calm the jitters! Everyone loved the ceremony and it meant a lot to us to be able to create a ceremony that was so personal. Sometimes it is difficult to find just the right phrase, and your online Console certainly provided many ideas and suggestions. The Enduring Promises program certainly is a great service.
Thanks again and we hope you have a good August.

My wife Jody and I had the pleasure of working with a number of folks at Enduring Promises. Their website is great to work with and provided us with many great ideas. In fact, it really is a simple 'road map' to the creation of a meaningful ceremony. Officiant Rob Brouwer is excellent at what he does and comes highly recommended. He's quick with a smile, witty and was a calming influence. Incredibly, he conducted our wedding ceremony on his own anniversary day! Thank you Rob!! We highly recommend Enduring Promises. Thank you for making our day so special!

We worked with Rob at Enduring Promises and couldn't be happier!
He helped us with every part of the ceremony and was always quick to answer any questions we had. Everyone loved him!
Emily and Jordan
Working with Rob from Enduring Promises made the whole process of planning and implementing our wedding ceremony so much easier and stress free.
He took the time to walk us through the day, and to listen to what we were looking for in a ceremony, and what we wanted to avoid.
He provided so much helpful information that it was easy to customize a ceremony that completely felt genuine to who we are as a couple.
I highly recommend working with Enduring Promises if you are looking to make your ceremony special. Thank you, Rob!
