Pete was an amazing celebrant. He was so professional from the initial emails and follow up all the way through to communication after the big day.

He really listened to us at our meetings and helped to create a ceremony that suited us. On the day he was friendly, witty, calming and a great presence.

Everything ran smoothly and we had such a fun and memorable day which he was a big part of.

We would recommend Pete for sure to anyone thinking of booking him! 🙂

If you are thinking about booking Pete, you should book him now! Picking a celebrant was one of the hardest parts of the wedding planning. We knew what we wanted from our celebrant so were picky in who we chose and Pete lived up to everything and more. He always listened to what we wanted, he didn't have a finished template of a ceremony that was the same as everyone elses and on the day, Pete pulled the ceremony off better than we could have imagined. He was calm, authentic and real. He told our story in it's truest form and made our ceremony one to remember. We were laughing, crying and full of love. Nearly every one of our guests commented on Pete and the ceremony, some thought he was a close friend as he told our story as if he knew us! Book Pete!

Professional, warm & understanding throughout the whole process. Took a very extra mile to aid us in our difficulties even while we were making things work from outside Australia.

During the ceremony, we made some last minute changes which he accommodated to and even made it fun, interactive and he even dressed up to suit our unusual dress code.

To top it off, he delivered a beautiful & heartwarming story of our relationship which couldn't have be done better.

Highly recommended through and through! 🙂

Pete was brilliant! We met with three potential celebrants, and it was an easy decision for both of us to go with Pete - he was incredibly authentic, made us feel relaxed and we shared lots of laughs, but it was also clear to see that love and marriage is very important to him. Pete listened to us ramble for what felt like hours (thankfully over some wine) and managed to turn this into a coherent and accurate story of our relationship. With a killer smile, a great presence, and a few dad jokes thrown in (on our request)

Pete was the perfect celebrant for us, and we'd recommend him highly!

Wonderful to deal with from start to finish. From first meeting he was friendly and warm, easy to talk to and understood exactly our vision.

The ceremony was the perfect balance of sentiment and humour.

The guests all raved about Pete and loved all of the personal touches he had included.

Thank you Pete!
