Peter’s aim as a wedding celebrant is to work closely with you to provide a ceremony that is in keeping with your desires and values. A ceremony you dream of is one that you deserve.
It's important for you to know that your ceremony is professionally organised so that the demands of your wedding day are minimised with a relaxed and friendly approach. His service to you will include: up to three meetings, assisting with ceremony preparation, a rehearsal (if required and within reasonable distance), facilitation of all paper work and submission of documentation to relevant authorities, arrival at the venue at least 45 minutes prior to the ceremony, conducting the ceremony and any other assistance you desire.
There's nothing more meaningful than a poem or story to beautify a special occasion. As Peter has a background as a poet and a story teller a personalised poem or story can be provided as part of the ceremony. This service is inclusive in the fee.
I believe that all wedding ceremonies are special. I guarantee to deliver your choice of ceremony in a professional, relaxed and friendly manner.
"The ceremony you dream of is the one you deserve"
Peter provides a no obligation first meeting where a complimentary wedding pack is given, portfolios can be viewed and your wedding needs are discussed. The second meeting is a longer meeting where the paperwork is filled out (via a computer program), a draft of the ceremony is formed and questions asked for the personal poem. Birth certificates and, in the case of a remarriage relevant documentation need to be sighted.
In an outdoor venue it is important for all of your guests to be able to hear the ceremony. Peter provides a top of the range wireless microphone and amplification system so that your guests feel included in your special day. If needed, a table and chairs for signing are supplied.
A printed certificate of marriage, as well as a bound copy of all the words spoken in the ceremony, is presented to the couple on the wedding day. Subsequent to the wedding, a presentation folder containing the personalised poem with photo of the couple can be forwarded for a small additional cost.
Peter is able to produce and print orders of service for the guests (if required – a small fee is involved for this).
There are four different wedding ceremonies packages I offer and that you can choose from, in our first meeting we can discuss all four and choose the right one for you. Schedule of Fees (as at 1/1/2013).
