What Ceremony Are You Looking to Plan?


We can design the ceremony that's perfect for you

Petra stepped in and helped enormously with the farewell ceremony of my fiance Robert at Bedarra Island. She took care of all the arrangements, coordinated the attendees and made this very sad occasion a memorable and cherished event. Petra is a very kind and giving soul and goes far above and beyond what is expected to ensure the occasion she manages is perfect in every way. Thank you Petra, you are truly gracious, wonderful and kind human being.

I witnessed Petra as she was doing a friend's naming day ceremony and it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have been to. Petra has a beautiful way of expressing herself and her ease of communication with the parents and sponsors was inspiring. Petra has a sincere and loving personality and this came through in the biggest way during her ceremony. I highly recommend Petra as your celebrant.
