every  review is 5-star!

Hi, I’m Peter.

I happily officiate a diverse range of ceremonies, or ‘Rites of Passage’, which celebrate the most important milestones in our lives.

And, as a Commonwealth-Registered Marriage Celebrant, I specialise in presiding at legally recognised elopement and wedding ceremonies.

Just for the record, celebrancy is absolutely the best profession in the world!

For me, it’s a true vocation.

For you, I will take great pride in creating and delivering the perfect ceremony that is exactly what you  want.

That’s because the only star of the show is you, and certainly not  the celebrant!

Your celebrant’s role is to bring your wishes to life.

Ensure your  celebration is 5-star

During our lifetime, it’s not often that we need to call upon the services of a Civil Celebrant, so choosing the very best ‘fit’ for you and your requirements is not an easy task.

No doubt, you will want to appoint someone who engenders a very high degree of trust, comfort and confidence in their ability to deliver your ceremony your way.

To that end, I am happy to offer you a free, confidential and no-obligation meeting – either in-person or virtual – to ensure that we are a ‘perfect match’ to collaborate together to create your perfect ceremony.

For a face-to-face meeting, you are absolutely welcome to make an appointment at my Hepburn Springs home office, just near Daylesford.

Otherwise I am happy to travel a reasonable distance to meet you at your home or perhaps we could chat over a wine or coffee at a mutually convenient café.

Whilst based in central Victoria, I am qualified, willing and able to perform ceremonies right across Australia.

And just for the record, I happen to be fully vaccinated!

Why me?

Well, there are many celebrants out there, each with different personalities and offering varying levels of experience, training, professional development, creativity, professionalism and commitment.

I bring a unique blend of personal and professional attributes, skills and experience to my Civil Celebrancy vocation. My clients agree!

After perhaps talking with your short-listed candidates, I encourage you to choose very carefully, and decide with your heart as well as with your head.

A good celebrant…

A journeyman celebrant will likely perform a standard job of producing a workmanlike ceremony and also, in the case of weddings, attending to the necessary legal processes.

However for most people, arranging any kind of ceremony – often including discussing quite personal aspects of your life – can be quite a nerve-wracking experience.

After all, your ceremony represents a Rite of Passage of great significance to you – and there’s only one chance to get it right on the day!

That’s why you need, and in fact, you really deserve…

… a great  celebrant

In reality, there are vast differences between a ‘good’ Civil Celebrant and a ‘great’ one.

My commitments to you…

  • a friendly, down-to-earth, patient and approachable manner
  • uncompromisingly ethical, trustworthy and honest principles
  • an efficient, organised and responsive facilitator with a fastidious eye-for-detail
  • an innovative and creative writer employing empathy, sensitivity and professionalism to document your story
  • offering unique, highly personalised and bespoke ceremonies
  • an accomplished public speaker delivering authentic and engaging presentations
  • utilising empathy, experience and expertise to minimise your stress
  • I listen, I consult and I am highly collaborative, viewing a ceremony’s success as being a true team effort between client and celebrant as well as any other suppliers and participants who may be involved
  • I bring no ego to either the preparations nor to the delivery of what is ultimately your ceremony
  • my presentation will be finely attuned to the style of your choosing, expressing the full range from gravitas to light-heartedness as appropriate
  • I navigate, guide and advise on potential presentation options and will happily advise and coach you as required on any questions such as vow writing and presentation techniques
  • when necessary, I can be a counsellor and a diplomat to ensure that your day unfolds just as you want
  • on agreeing the parameters of your ceremony, for full transparency I offer a written guaranteed fixed-price quotation with absolutely no hidden extra costs

Overall, I dedicate myself to manage every ceremony as if it were my own

… and that’s priceless!

Our ceremony script was so beautifully written by Peter! The time taken to find out about us in a deeper context to then create such a unique, intimate and love filled ceremony was so fantastic. The process to get to the final script was easy and fun too. It was exciting to see it all come to life. It was the perfect way to highlight and unite us on a really special day. We will forever be so greatful for the wonderful words and procession that we know we will cherish forever. Would 100% highly recommend Peter to anyone and everyone!

Peter was great to deal with from our 1st visit to the actual Wedding Ceremony. He catered to all the little touches we wanted with professionalism and humor. The water and Tic Tac's prior to ceremony are a great idea and were very much appreciated. Would definitely engage his services again (Vow renewal anyone) !
