Creating authentic ceremonies that are easy going!!

Pete is one of Melbourne’s youngest celebrants who lives in Eltham with his wife Grace and three adorable (tho sometimes crazy) daughters. When he’s not with them or masterfully crafting your ceremony, he can be found listening to podcasts, audiobooks and dabbling in one of his many hobbies (home made honey anyone?!).

His speciality is to mix light humour and sentimentality to capture the richness of your relationship. He’s perfect at keeping the ceremony natural and authentic, putting you and your wedding guests at ease as they participate in celebrating your beautiful commitment.

 

Sitting with Pete to craft your story, vows and runsheet is like spending time with a close friend as he genuinely cares about who you are and making your wedding day exceptional! Pete’s ability to connect with couples is such that guests are often left asking ‘how long have you been best friends with Pete for?!'

 If you want an easy, engaging and relatable celebrant to make your day and the journey towards it better than you hoped - Pete is the celebrant for you!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do you offer rehearsals?

Yes, most of the times it’s just the three of us in your living room or a bar where we go over the finer details. If you want to get the whole wedding party together, then let’s go for it!

Do you help with writing personal vows?

Yes, I offer support with the whole process including the legals vows to giving ideas and framework for personal vows. You may also want to read them for the first time to each other during the ceremony; I’ll check they’re similar length and depth so it’s the best possible surprise!

Do you travel?

Yes I do travel, you tell me where you’re getting married and I’ll see you there!!

Do you complete all the legal paperwork?

Yes, I do! Everything I do is to make this whole process easy and simple for you; I ask you to fill out one form and I’ll fill out the other 4 documents and then lodge them for you too.

How far in advance should we book our celebrant?

I have weddings booked 1-2 years in advance, so it’s best not to delay, even if it’s simply checking a celebrants availability.

Pete has been funny, friendly and helpful from our first interaction with him and we knew straight away that he was ‘the one’ we wanted to marry us and MC our reception. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our wedding until next year due to COVID-19 and it’s comforting to know that, although we are going through these uncertain times, we have one less thing to worry about because Pete has been very supportive, understanding and flexible throughout this whole process. We know Pete is going to be an amazing part of our wedding and we can’t wait! If you’re looking for a celebrant and/or MC, Pete is your man!

Pete was fabulous - he made all of our interactions really warm and friendly, lead us through what needed to be done and all up nailed our ceremony on the day. So much so, our friends thought he was a personal friend of ours! Highly recommend Pete - he's professional and easy going and was always so helpful!

This is no lie Carla: as soon as I woke up I knew we were going to have a cracker of a wedding! Had such a great time with you all leading up to and on the day! Congratulations!

Pete was the perfect match for our wedding day. He was calm, fun, thoughtful throughout the whole planning process. He spent time understanding us and what makes us tick as a couple which really came across during the ceremony. We had so many people comment on how great he was and how much they enjoyed listening to our story. Couldn’t recommend Pete any higher!

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Laura and Ben!! You guys had a cracker of a ceremony! A lot of laughs, family connections were involved and at the end of the day...you walked away with each other and a bottle of Gin, haha! Congratulations!

Pete was our celebrant and MC on our wedding day and my goodness was he the BEST choice we made. He was so wonderful to deal with from the get go. He was professional, made the whole process seamless for us and the communication was outstanding. Would highly recommend him! All five stars here. Thanks again Pete! 👌😀

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Tash! It was great to join you both as your celebrant and MC! As to being the 'Best' choice you both made....if you say so! *blush*

We had everything locked and loaded for Pete to marry us this Saturday, but COVID-19 got us good and we've had to postpone our big day until later in the year. We are so devastated as Pete has prepared a ceremony that captures us perfectly, with just the right balance of sentiment and humour. We are counting down the days until our friends and family can finally meet Pete (we've been telling them for a year to get excited for our "young, hot, modern celebrant") and hear his cracking version of our love story - he better bring business cards because all our newly engaged friends are going to be lining up to book him!

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Rach, we'll show Rona that she didn't ruin your day - it's going to be incredible!

21 Mar 2020

We had Pete as the celebrant for our wedding recently and he was amazing! He absolutely went the extra mile to make the ceremony welcoming, funny and personal, would definitely recommend! We even had guests comment after the ceremony that he was one of the best celebrants they had ever seen!

Pete the Celebrant  

Thank You Danielle and THANK YOU for the amazing gift you gave me too!! I've never walked away with a showbag of gifts. Loved sharing your story with friends and family and being first wedding at the famed Olinda Yarra.

13 Mar 2020

Where to even start! We were absolutely blown away by Pete from the get go. Obviously never being married before, we were not sure what to do or what to expect. The entire process leading up to the big day with Pete was effortless thanks to his guidance! Our ceremony was nothing short of amazing - It was easy, super special and extremely memorable! Pete was a smiling face that provided comfort through the anxious moments, and was a point of focus for Nan to get distracted by throughout the ceremony (she was smitten). The whole experience was just so much fun! After being blessed to receive the full 'Pete the Celebrant' experience, we could not recommend him more!! 11/10 for sure!

Pete the Celebrant  

Hahaha, Nan's eye candy...someone's gotta do it.

Pete made our day magical and kept us both calm, answered all my questions and received lots of compliments from our guests on the day. Our ceremony was perfect thanks to his hard work.

Pete the Celebrant  

You said you'd be freaking out and you were incredible on the day Abby!

6 Mar 2020

Pete is AMAZING! From the moment we got in contact with Pete he was so accomodating, our first meeting was to be via FaceTime and because it was so close to Christmas and I was a frantic mess it went from what was supposed to be an 8pm phone call that ended up being a 10pm FaceTime, we knew from the second we spoke with him that we had to lock him in to be our celebrant and it was just our luck when he advised he provides an MC service also. The whole process with Pete was so so smooth, the catch ups weren't formal we felt so relaxed and at ease the whole way through, we told Pete that we wanted lots of laughs and nothing to serious and upon reading Pete’s first draft of our ceremony that is exactly what we got. I didn’t think we would be able to tell our story to reflect us both perfectly but not only did Pete do that he executed it perfectly in every way, He even stepped in helping out our best man when he choked during his speech. Our guests have been RAVING about him ever since, a few people asking for his details so they can lock him in for their future weddings. All in All I do not have enough words to explain how thankful we both are to Pete for making our day everything it was. We cannot recommend him highly enough, there are just no words that even do it justice. Thank you again :)

Pete the Celebrant  

Mikaela! You guys had an absolute cracker of a wedding. Thank you for your huge review of praise, I feel awesome haha. It was an incredible night of dancing, pizza, fires. Can't wait to see all the pics.

If you haven’t booked Pete to be your celebrant, you’re missing out! From the start, the pre-consultations we had with Pete felt like we were talking with an old friend. He listened to our story, took notes and explained the process he goes through to make sure each wedding is as unique as the individuals getting married. He sent through a rough template of what he would say on the big day and it made us laugh and cry. He had captured out story in its purest form and on the day, there was no stopping him. He was charismatic, funny, authentic and our guests adored him. The feedback was unanimous; “He was the best celebrant ever.” When we look back at our ceremony, we couldn’t have imagined it without Pete and for that we are eternally grateful. Thanks Pete! You’re a superstar!

Reviews within reviews!! Thanks Markus, you and Abby were so fun to marry - genuine crackups!

1 Feb 2020

We wanted a fun, laid back ceremony that had people laughing and crying with happiness and that is exactly what we got with Pete. The ceremony was so perfectly crafted to capture who we really are and the love we share for each other. And even though it decided to rain during our outdoor summer wedding, Pete did a spectacular job of creating an amazing vibe. No one even cared that it was raining in the end! We received so many comments on how great and personal the ceremony was - my whole family thought he was a long time friend of ours! We are so thankful we had Pete marry us and couldn't recommend him more highly.

Pete the Celebrant  

Hey Dani and Toby, thank you so much for the kind words. Would happily stand in the rain again for you both, haha.

Pete was awesome. We were quite time poor leading up to our wedding but Pete was able to meet us on our terms which was so good. His ceremony was on point and made everyone relax and get into the spirit of the wedding. We would be more than happy to recommend Pete.

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Jake and Gemma, you have a beautiful property and I'm so glad I was able to see it firsthand.

3 Jan 2020

Pete is an amazing celebrant and I can't recommend him enough. He is so dedicated to making your day amazing and special. Our ceremony was so unique to us, and we received countless compliments on such an engaging ceremony.

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Emily and Duncan! Loved being your celebrant at Flowerdale Estate - such a great wedding and story to start the year with.

14 Dec 2019

Pete was amazing!! Our guests couldn't believe that he didn't know us personally. He nailed our ceremony. It was exactly what we had hoped it to be. Could not have been happier!!

Pete the Celebrant  

Thanks Leonie! I loved the day with you and Hannah, so much thought into each and every detail for it all. Great use of a friends lavender farm.

6 Dec 2019

From the moment we met Pete we knew we had to book him. He was relaxed, charismatic, professional. He made the whole process easy and was flexible and accommodating to suit the style of wedding we had in our mind. On the day Pete set the scene and had the guests engaged throughout. He spoke confidently and was engaging and helped Ben and I feel relaxed. Definitely would recommend!! Thank-you Pete! Jess & Ben

Pete the Celebrant  

Hey Jess and Ben, you two had me in hysterics from our first meeting. So down to earth and fun to hang out with. If doing your families funerals I get to see you again, then we'll make it happen!
