About

Reverend Peadar Dalton officiates weddings in the beautiful Sonoma and Napa Wine Country, the San Francisco greater Bay Area, as well as throughout the United States. Rev. Dalton also offers renewal of wedding vows, newborn blessings, and other celebrations of significant life transitions. He is one of the most sought after wedding minister-officiants because of his style and personal presence he contributes to each couples' defining moment. He is a well recognized public speaker and he and his staff with Your Ceremony Matters devotes considerable time to meet and plan each ceremony. Born and raised in the West of Ireland, he is deeply connected with his own tradition of the importance of a community celebrating and witnessing your ceremony. He guides the wedding couple in blending their personal beliefs with any spiritual or religious traditions that have touched their lives. Although Rev.

Best of the best

We knew we wanted to work with Peadar from the first moment we heard him speak in one of the videos on his website. We immediately reached out and decided we wanted to work it out however possible to work with Peadar. From our first conversation both Peadar and his lovely wife Margarita made us feel so special, important, understood and supported. Their approach to each ceremony is so special and unique, you are truly getting your own individual experience. Peadar took the time to get to know each of us as individuals as well as together as a couple. We worked together to build a ceremony that completely reflected our love and partnership. The day of was the hottest possible day at 102 degrees and we still wouldn't have changed a thing. Our ceremony was a dream and we will cherish that memory for the rest of our lives. We cannot recommend Peadar and Margarita more, in them you are not just getting an officiant, but a new member of your community who join and support you as you start this next most exciting chapter.

A truly touching and personal ceremony

Peadar was such a wonderful officiant for our special day. He truly got to know us as a couple and made the ceremony extremely personal. He always took notes during our meetings and it was reflected throughout his words during the ceremony. All of our guests commented following the ceremony how genuine the ceremony was and noted it was one most thoughtful ceremonies as it showed our true love for one another. We cannot thank Peadar enough for all that he did to make our ceremony such a special event for us -- he really made sure that it reflected and showed the love we have for one another. He stayed after the ceremony to speak with our guests, which made a lasting impression on all those that he spoke with and because of that, we cannot recommend Peadar enough! He and his wife Margarita are fantastic people and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an incredibly genuine officiant who will highlight the love you have for one another on your wedding day.

Wonderful Officiant!

Paedar was a wonderful officiant for our wedding ceremony, and throughout the entire planning process. First of all, he is genuinely passionate about his work. He made our marriage feel like a truly special event from the moment we first talked to him. He carried that passion and enthusiasm through the ceremony on our wedding day. He and his wife were extremely professional and easy to communicate with. They helped us plan our vows and coordinate the marriage license requirements, all while maintaining an atmosphere that focused on love and the special moment we shared together. We would 100% recommend Paedar to all future couples.

Rev. Peadar Dalton never ceases to amaze us! We have had the opportunity to work with him on multiple occasions via our company, Weddings on Film. We have witnessed many ceremonies throughout our 15+ years of experience of filming weddings and can confidently say that his ability to perform and lead a ceremony that is touchingly personal and a true reflection of the couple is UNPARALLELED. He spends countless of hours with the couple leading up to the wedding to prepare- he really gets to know them, their personalities and family dynamics. Never two ceremonies are the same with him. We also hired him to perform our daughter's naming ceremony and was blown away by his words- he elevates each occasion making it unforgettable and super special. He is our top choice.
