It brings me joy and satisfaction to unite couples in marriage. An Ordained Minister, I am also a Registered Wedding Officiant in New York City. I am happy that I am now able to offer my services to ALL COUPLES in New York.

My diverse background has uniquely prepared me for a role as an officiant. After graduating from New York University’s Theater Department in 1979, I worked as a professional extra on shows such as “Law and Order” and “The Equalizer.” I have also appeared off-Broadway and in films.

My theatrical experience has taught me to feel comfortable speaking in front of large groups; thus I am at ease officiating a wedding with four or 400 guests.

I believe it is my duty to provide couples with a thoroughly pleasant and stress-free wedding day, one that will be cherished by everyone present, but most importantly by the two people committing their love to each other.

Peter officiated our wedding this past Friday at Brooklyn Winery, and we couldn't be more pleased. Peter was a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding -- he answered all of our questions, put us at ease at our first meeting, and was more than responsive from the day we booked him until the day of our wedding and he easily guided us through the whole process. But more importantly than that, Peter created a beautiful, personalized ceremony for us that exceeded all of our expectations, and he delivered it beautifully. It has been less than two days that we've been married, but we have already received countless compliments from guests about how wonderful Peter was and how impressed they were by the extremely beautiful and thoughtful ceremony. We absolutely couldn't recommend him more!

Peter was fantastic; at all times professional, friendly, supportive and sincere.

Nearly one month on since our amazing wedding day, which was held on a crisp November day under crystal blue skies, it's time to acknowledge that person who made it possible, Peter. We had planned a visit to NYC for a holiday and decided whilst there we would get married. We are both Australians and sadly our own backward country does not allow gay marriage and so we turned to the state of New York and with Peter's help it happened, smoothly.

How do you plan a wedding in a foreign country? After a little bit of Google and a few emails later we were under way with the guidance of Peter. He was incredibly helpful and was able to assist us with all the required documentation and locations of where to go and when. No email had a question too small or too large for Peter to handle, we kept sending them and he kept answering them happily.

We were a small gathering made up of close friends from London and NYC. They all commented on Peter's sincerity in delivering the words used in expressing our love and the commitment we have for each other. We were involved in writing the words used in the ceremony but primarily it was all Peter's work.

Thank you Peter for making our marriage a seamless and enjoyable experience.
Something we will never forget.

Peter is wonderful!

My husband and I got married in front of City Hall Fountain on 25/10/2014. We booked Peter a month in advance. We communicated only through telephone and email and from our first conversation on I knew Peter was a great choice. He was very responsive and willing to adjust to our needs. Most of all, the ceremony he wrote for us was amazing. He made the civil ceremony special and meaningful! We highly recommend him.

We are a gay couple from Trinidad, 3,000 miles fro New York and planned our wedding one year in advance. Peter was the first contact and guided us from the beginning on getting the park permit for the Ladies Parvilion in Central Park, the marriage licence and was in constant contact with us through out the entire year.
The ceremony was perfect, the words and quotes used in the ceremony we perfect for us as one is Catholic and the other atheist.
Peter's charm, personality and presence was calming and everyone of our guest complimented him on the ceremony.
Peter will forever be in our hearts and we were happy to have him marry us

When my husband and I were planning our New York wedding (we are from Dublin, Ireland) we had no clue how to go about choosing an officiant. After reading so many reviews, we concluded that Peter's were consistently the best. Happy to say that we could not have made a better choice! He made everything so easy for us which we really appreciated since we were coming from so far away. Peter asked great questions to get to know us, and wrote the most beautiful vows that were personalized and suited us perfectly. On our wedding day, all of our guests commented to us about how impressed they were with Peter and our ceremony. We couldn't agree more! My husband and I would both highly recommend Peter to anyone who wants to get married in New York. You couldn't possibly do any better!

It was as if Peter had known us as long as we had known each other. Not only was he as professional as promised, but he listened to our wishes and produced a ceremony that was just touching and resonated with our entire guest list. We actually had a sand ceremony as a part of our ceremony and he was not only open to the idea but had a few recommendations that enhanced the experience for us and our kids. The order and length of program was just perfect and the actual content provided the balance that exuded love and respect for each other while covering all of the necessary traditional basis. After the ceremony, Peter executed the signing and delivery of our marriage license in an efficient manner which further demonstrated his level of professionalism and promptness. I would recommend Peter for anyone wishing to get married, you will definitely be very satisfied.

We eloped from Ireland to NYC and got married on the 7th October. From the first contact with Peter I knew we had made the right choice! Coming all the way from Ireland and not knowing how the process in New York works, Peter was extremely helpful from start to finish. He advised how to get the marriage licence and where is the perfect spot in Central Park to get married and I'm pretty sure he made the sun shine that day as its always raining here at home!!

Peter was so easy to communicate, every email I sent was responded to immediately and I was made feel so at ease that when I saw Peter that day I felt we had met already!

I would highly recommend Peter as a wedding officiant, from his helpful demeanor, friendly attitude and smart attire I just knew my day was going to go ahead without any problems.

Peter was a true professional. We tend to be very picky about what we like and don't but we agreed that there was nothing more we could ask from Peter. He was attentive, showed up early, looked good and gave a very touching ceremony. He was also great to bounce questions off of regarding the wedding licensing process and he got our license submitted so quickly that we had a copy of our wedding license registration waiting in the mail for us when we returned home from our honeymoon! Highly recommended officiant.

P.S. - He was also very professional and helpful in compiling the draft of our ceremony and he included all of the (very minor) edits and suggestions we made.
