  • My wife and I LOVED having Peter officiate our wedding. He was so patient with us throughout this process. We met with him before our wedding and he walked us through the ceremony step by step. He also sent us readings and vows to choose from. This was all so helpful. He kept our ceremony short and sweet, which is what we wanted. He kept the audience laughing and engaged despite the little rain we got during our outdoor ceremony. Overall, it was such a positive experience with Peter and I highly recommend hiring him.

  • Peter was fantastic for our wedding. He made sure to get to know us way in advance, and was extremely friendly throughout the entire process. He made wonderful suggestions for our ceremony, and allowed us to create our dream ceremony. He showed up with ample time, and checked in on us as promised. His reflection during the ceremony was beautiful, and he acted like he had known us for years. Thank you Peter for being the greatest addition to our ceremony!

  • My husband and I had a truly wonderful experience working with Reverend Peter. It was only a few minutes into our first meeting with Peter that we knew we wanted him to be the officiant on our special day. He is kind, easy to talk to and very professional. He had a genuine interest in getting to know us as a couple, and that showed on our wedding day as he delivered a beautiful greeting to our family and friends. He was well versed in the wedding process and was ready to offer any level of guidance we needed. He was flexible and supportive, which allowed us to design a ceremony that felt like us. Peter was by our side throughout our planning and by keeping in constant contact with us, made the process stress-free and enjoyable! :)

    Dear Amy and David - thanks for your kind words and comments. Your participation in the planning made it a joy for me to work along with you both. The selection of the Audubon Center was so reflective of you both - such a natural setting to gather friends and family for your wedding ceremony. Best wishes, peter

  • We loved having Peter as our officiant!!!! I was raised in a very catholic household so the thought of getting married in a garden did not exactly sit well with some of our family. He was very receptive to this and did an excellent job of incorporating my background but also making sure that our ceremony was how we wanted as well!!! He made everyone feel welcome and comfortable!!! We had sommany compliments!!! Our ceremony was full of love, laughter, and happiness!! Having it in a garden was the icing on top of the cupcake!!!! We were not from the area so Email was our best friend! He responded very quickly and was very flexible when it came to chats on the phone!!! I highly recommend Peter to be your officiant. He was great!!!! He only knew us for a short time but to be honest after everything is said and done we felt like we had known him for years. I'm happy to say that kyle and I know have a new friend!!! Thanks again for making our ceremony as special as it truly was!!!

  • Having Reverend Peter officiate our wedding was a blessing. Everything was so last minute but he was very cooperative, proffessional and most of all patient. The service flowed nicely, or family members felt very involved, we are grateful for what he has done for us and highly recommend him as an officiant.

    Thank you Elizabeth and Max for your kind thoughts and for the privilege of witnessing your marriage along with your families. Many blessings and good wishes to you both. Peter McGuinness

  • Peter was so wonderful and the perfect choice for our wedding officiant! From the moment we met with Peter we knew that he was the right choice for us. He has a very kind, calm, and personable demeanor and it felt like we were chatting with an old friend. He helped us create a ceremony that was unique and perfect for us. The ceremony was short, sweet and packed with love and emotion. He was an excellent speaker and really conveyed to our guests the love that we have for eachother. We were thrilled with the ceremony and our guests LOVED it! Thank you so much Peter!!!!

    Jaclyn - it was pleasure to work with you and Connor. What an amazing ceremony you and he created, with the readings and music.

  • Upon first meeting with Peter McGuinness, my husband and I knew we'd be moving forward with him as our officiant. He was friendly, easy-going, and he provided us with great recommendations on how best to structure our ceremony to maintain a good flow for the event. With only two meetings prior to our wedding day, Peter McGuinness was able to understand our personalities and infuse them into our ceremony. He made an effort to get to know our family and friends - many of whom have told us how much they enjoyed Peter's words and company. He exceeded our expectations and really made our day special. Thanks Peter! :)

    Thanks Nicole for your comments. It was an honor to work with you and Jim to create a ceremony that reflected your commitment. It was also a pleasure to meet your families and friends and to see their love and support for you both. Best of the holiday season to you all. Peter

  • Working with Peter was really easy and stress free. At our initial meeting, both my husband and I knew Peter would be the perfect person to officiate our wedding. There is something familiar and comforting about him that we just loved. He was very helpful along the way and created a ceremony that was perfect for us. So many people complimented us on our lovely and unique ceremony.

  • Peter was an absolutely wonderful officiant for our wedding! He was easy to work with and put a lot of effort in to getting to know us in order to ensure the ceremony matched who we are and the values we wanted to express for our marriage. We were looking for someone who could help guide us in the design of our ceremony but also be flexible to ideas we had on our own - Peter fit that need perfectly. He provided guidance on structure, flow, reading/prayer recommendations and then worked with us after we made changes, edits, and contributions of our own. Most importantly, Peter provided a really personalized reflection during the ceremony. After getting to know us beforehand he provided comments and thoughts to our guests that felt like he had know us for years. We had several guests comment to us that the ceremony was "very much a reflection of you both." We definitely recommend Peter!

    Dear Greg - thanks to you and Jessica for your kind review and comments. You both made it an honor and joy to be part of your special day, at a lovely setting and wonderful day for an outdoor ceremony. Best wishes to you both! peter

  • We can't say enough about Peter and the lovely, personalized ceremony he delivered for us. He learned a lot about us and our relationship before the event, and made the ceremony exactly what we hoped. He was flexible and very open to our ideas, and provided feedback and examples whenever we needed them. He is so easy to work with and was such an asset to our special wedding weekend. We HIGHLY recommend!

  • Peter McGuinness was the perfect officiant for our wedding! He was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process and completely understood our vision for the wedding. My husband and I wanted a short and sweet, non-denominational ceremony, but still filled with a lot meaning and love. Peter helped us put together a ceremony that was extremely personal and heartfelt. It was the perfect mix of sentimental, serious, and lighthearted that fit our personality perfectly. Many of our guests commented on what a great job Peter did! From the first meeting, Peter made us feel so comfortable and we were happy to have him as part of the wedding day. We would highly recommend Peter to anyone in the Philadelphia area!

  • I am a bit torn on this review as Peter is such a nice man and we truly enjoyed getting to know him. In older reviews on this site (which I did not see prior to booking him) couples complained about Peter going off on tangents and not following the provided guidelines. I found this to be similar to our experience. When we first met, Peter told us that he did not usually attend rehearsals. I regret not having him attend and would highly recommend you to have Peter at your rehearsal to ensure everyone is on the same page. Two things happened as direct result 1. when I came down the aisle with my father, Peter came right up to us and told my dad to shake my fiance's hand first and then kiss me on the cheek. We had rehearsed the opposite and it created a bit of an awkward confusion at a moment where I wanted to be alone with my dad/future husband. 2. As the ceremony began, Peter stood in front of us and became addressing the guests, I was very confused and allowed him to stand there as... Read more

    I am sorry I did not meet your expectations. I truly appreciate your feedback and take all comments seriously, so that going forward, I can provide quality service. Couples that provide a script, usually also encourage adding my style to it, and I thought this occurred and was the understanding we had. I know I received compliments after the ceremony from family and guests how special the ceremony was. Again my apologies if that did not come off as you anticipated. I wish you both the very best.
