Happy Clients

Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to thank you and Peter again for going above and beyond for Brendan and I for our wedding ceremony. It was so relaxed and lots of fun! Thank you!! Peter also mentioned I had to send you a photo of my dress as he had never seen a dress like that before. It’s attached (Don’t know if that’s a good thing or bad haha as I know it’s not everyone’s traditional taste in weddings gowns. But it’s more “me”) anyways thanks again and I hope you and Peter enjoy the rest of your week!! – Carmen

Hi Peter, I just wanted to say you did a fantastic job! It was the best ceremony I’d ever heard. It was funny, smart, interesting, it didn’t ramble and everyone loved it. It was really great. Perfect in fact. Thanks again! Matt & Roxy

Hi Peter, we are so happy that we had you as our celebrant. Your presentation, speech and mannerisms were just perfect. You even made me forget that Angela was late for the wedding, since we were all having such a good chat down the front! -Aaron and Angela
