    “Nami and I are honoured to be the first couple married at Willowbrook Park. We searched far and wide across the Waikato for a venue that embodied our vision of a classic white wedding, but had little luck. But from the moment we set eyes on Willowbrook Park, we knew we had found the one.

    On the day of our wedding, the venue looked absolutely breathtaking. Radiant beams shone off the polished floors of the ballroom, beautiful bouquets lined the tables, and crystal chandeliers hung majestically from the ceiling. To say that our guests were impressed would be a massive understatement.
    We cannot thank Peter and David enough for the effort they put in to make everything come together. They both worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure everything ran like clockwork and the end result was a perfect wedding, and a day that we will never, ever forget.”
    Greg and Nami Thomas

    " We turned to Peter for advice about planning the ceremony. He was very helpful to us, with lots of good advice about the details of the service - his background as a priest made him a great source of information. Peter is patient, supportive, and has a wonderful sense of humour, and manages a great rapport with all whom he meets...and we would recommend him to any future couple."
                                                      - Kahl and Cristina Betham.

    Peter also offers his services independent of Willowbrook Park, should couples wish to tie the knot at another venue.
