COVID 19 update. (Dated 26th May 2020)

Hi All.
Great news about an increase to wedding numbers in Level 2.
As of noon Fri 29th May 2020, the numbers for weddings and gatherings will increase from 10 to 100 people.
This is great news for many of you who had put your wedding on hold.
You will still need to:

  • Play it safe and keep hygiene levels high. (Keep surfaces clean, wash your hands, and practice safe distancing).
  • Record attendees to ensure contact tracing can be conducted if necessary
  • You can’t participate in any gatherings if you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you need to be in isolation for any reason.
  • Overseas travel restrictions are still in place, but there are still ways to include your overseas guests in the celebration

For more information refer to:

Remember that my home, Casabella, is perfect for an intimate ceremony of up to 35 people. It has lovely gardens and a covered courtyard in case it rains.
Most couples follow the ceremony with a fabulous meal at a local restaurant.
Check out the video of Casabella further on this page.

Whether your wedding is at a park, a restaurant, your place or mine, as your celebrant, I’ll work with you and discuss all the options.
Give me a call to discuss your plans. Here’s to an awesome magical day!

Client Testimonials

‘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.
