Experience Back To TopI am an experienced celebrant who will give you a professional service whether you are planning a small private ceremony or a gathering for hundreds of your family and friends. I have experience performing all of the many different ceremonies that span our lives.
I have created ceremonies for a range of clients and in venues such as theatres, elegant restaurants, historic places, beaches, parks, gardens and private homes. Working in Auckland regional and local parks I am familiar with the many exciting outdoor and scenic places to hold both weddings and funerals, and can point you to a few that will work for your ceremony.
I am an accredited celebrant through CANZ. I also have a background and qualifications in Natural Resource Management and customer services, and can facilitate training for men.
Style of Working Back To TopI have a relaxed, natural and warm manner and will ensure that your ceremony is exactly as you wish. You are my customer and you will feel valued.
The ceremony we design together can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish. It can be held in almost any venue you desire.
As your celebrant, I give you complete choice over the content of your ceremony; you can decide whether to write the entire ceremony or just the readings and vows. Alternatively, I can provide a personal ceremony written for you. Whatever your choice, I will give you the tools and advice to make this easy for you, and of course I will be available if you require assistance.
The choice of a marriage celebrant is a vital part of planning your wedding. The person you select should be someone with whom you and your guests will feel completely comfortable and relaxed.
Whatever celebration or occasion you have in mind, I would be delighted to be of service in its planning and performance. I would love to arrange an obligation free meeting with you so that you can be assured of my genuine love for people and meaningful ceremony.
