CONGRATULATIONS on finding that special person to spend the best of your life with. I’m a friendly, experienced Celebrant who will support you in getting the ceremony you desire and to create wonderful memories of your special day. Unlike many celebrants, I can also provide a ceremony venue option at ‘Casabella’, my country home in Kumeu.
I love weddings! (and Civil Unions). As a celebrant, I am committed to designing a personalised ceremony and delivering it with a warm friendly style (at your venue or mine). When it comes to ceremonies, there are few ‘must dos’, so you have a lot of choice. It can be formal and intricate or casual and simple, even themed. Some couples don’t know where to start, so I am happy to offer ideas, suggestions, readings and vows.
‘Casabella’ means ‘Beautiful Home’ It is set on an idyllic 10 acre country property Casabella has a mediterranean feel and is a mix of established gardens, orchards, woodlands and open fields. It even has a covered courtyard as a wet weather alternative. ‘Casabella’ is a perfect affordable ceremony venue for an intimate – medium sized ceremony up to 35 people. Casabella is 5 minutes from Kumeu with all its fabulous wineries and restaurants, and a stone’s throw from beautiful Muriwai beach. The venue cost starts from just $450.

“Hello Peta, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the ceremony yesterday, it all went so well and we have had many compliments today! One particular comment was how beautifully you ran the proceedings – very relaxed and well spoken!” - Irini, Martin & James
“Dear Peta, Thank you for officiating our wedding ceremony at Arataki. We appreciated your warmth and graciousness which did much to add to the spirit of the occasion…Best wishes.” - Vivian and Charlie
‘Hi Peta, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day what it was.
Reading through the ceremony made cry and laugh and remember that I felt the happiest I have ever been. A big part of that was down to you and the way you perfectly matched our personalities, and portrayed the love we have for each other, it was almost as if you had been in our lives forever.
I especially loved seeing our kids in the fairy garden.They just loved it, as I knew they would.
Casabella is such a beautiful venue I couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else.
