  • Reverend Peter Mcguiness was a magical person who officiated our wedding with an amazing elegance that magically connected with him to have our very blessed day. In every thought of what was leading up to that “moment”, He was able to read the nervousness and take my bouquet and asked if i was ok quietly before proceeding with our ceremony. That calmed me so everything from that point on was a pure glow and enjoying every moment in recorded time. I not only want to recommend Reverend Peter McGuiness, I want to say He was an amazing officiant that felt family and kind spirits that made our ceremony absolutely unforgettable! Thank you for your unbelievable kindness and blessings! Bernadette and Tom

  • Peter is an amazing person and officiant. We met with him several times before our wedding to discuss everything, and we knew right away we wanted to use him to help us with our special day. He was very accommodating, understanding, and willing to cater the ceremony to our specific needs (which were interfaith). The ceremony was beautiful and unique, and most importantly made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. We would absolutely recommend him for anyone’s wedding!

  • 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!!!!

  • 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!
