BREAKING NEWS!!! Newly appointed as a Registry Celebrant by Births, Deaths and Marriages. The Government determines:
the fee ($90)
the hours: Mon - Fri (excluding public holidays)
I can take your ceremony at my home in Woodend or within 10kms of there - Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Tuahiwi, Pegasus... Just like at the registry office, but wherever you want! See my 'Registry Wedding' page for more details.
Kia Ora! Welcome! Watch my video and it will give you a sense of who I am and what I do. But here are some of the facts:
Registered marriage and civil union celebrant since 2009
Validated member of the Celebrants Association of NZ
Trainer for The Celebrants Training College, Aotearoa
BA in English and Drama. Diploma in Performance Art. Diploma in Teaching and Learning.
I am passionate about my job, caring and professional (see the Gallery page for lots of testimonials)
I have performed hundreds of varied ceremonies since that first, slightly nerve-wracking one years ago, and I still get the same buzz every time. Satisfaction comes from seeing people have a greater experience than they ever expected.
I am experienced in:
Marriage and Civil Union ceremonies
Renewal of Vows
Funerals and Memorial Services
MC for receptions and other occasions
So, let’s meet and have a chat. You can see if I am the right person for your occasion and the process of working together can begin. (First meeting is non-obligatory.)
Don’t worry if you don’t live in New Zealand, or near me in North Canterbury, we can always chat on Skype.
I’m happy to negotiate travel to anywhere in our beautiful country - fulfil your dream for where, when and what your ceremony is to be, and I’ll be there.
Below is a video of me in action, a few years ago now. Time for a new video!
