"Craig and I had been together 10 years before getting married, and it was important to us that our Celebrant understood our relationship and the enormity of this next step. Peter was everything we wanted in a Celebrant... and more. He put us at ease as soon as wesat down to discuss our ceremony and what we envisioned. He helped us with our vows and was there for us if we had any questions. On the day, Peter helped Craig relax, as I was unexpectantly 25 mins late, and he made our guests feel very welcome. Our ceremony was perfect - relaxed, seamless,... exactly what we were after. Thank you Peter for making our day that much more special! I would recommend Peter to anyone looking to get married, or renewing their vows. P.S., We now have a beautiful daughter (conceived 1 month after our wedding!)... so now will be looking for Peter and theWeddingGuy team to conduct our baby naming ceremony."

Donna Heaton, Events Manager, Auckland

NZ law requires that for a wedding ceremony to be legal it must be conducted by a registered civil, or religious celebrant.

Many weddings increasingly feature a more personalised wedding service than traditional church vows. As your marriage celebrant, we will conduct a special ceremony tailored to the individual needs of you, the bride and groom.

In utilising our services, you can make your wedding as intimate and personal as you like. We can assist you to write your own ceremony and vows, and allow the day to truly reflect your love, commitment and passion.

We will officiate at your choice of venue, be it a beautiful garden, a marquee on the lawn or even on top of a mountain!!

As your celebrant, we will also be able to offer suggestions as to ideas to include children, blended families, and special friends, helping to create the perfect day for you, the bride and groom.

    Among other things, Peter enjoys 'rolling up his sleeves and working in his local community". This "hands on" community involvement led to Peter being appointed a Justice of the Peace in 2005, a role he still actively enjoys today.

    When he's not otherwise working, Peter enjoys spending time with his family, hitting the Gym, and holidaying in exotic sun denched destinations overseas.

    "I see my role in working with a couple as one of creating a wedding ceremony, and a wedding day experience, that is the best relfection of their love, relationship and personality." - Peter L. Duncan.
