I am a qualified Marriage Celebrant, appointed under Section 11 of the Marriage
Act 1955 by the Department of Internal Affairs, since 2012
I hold a Certificate in Celebrant Studies, from Celebrants School Auckland
I am also a member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ)
I am married with 2 mature children and 4 grandchildren I love to spend my time
with them watching their school and sports activities. My forte is interacting with people.
That is why I spend an important portion of my time working for two major organisations in a volunteer role communicating
with and helping people.
Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life, so it must be done right.
I am a well-organised professional person, fun loving with a sense of humour, delivering
ceremonies with confidence, sincerity, and most importantly there to make
your day that much more special.
I am happy to meet with you for a no obligation, complimentary coffee to discuss your big
day and specific needs. I have wedding packs and planning material available should
you wish to engage my services thereafter
I look forward to meeting with you.
My Service Includes.
A catch up for a complimentary Coffee or Tea to meet and get to know each other, (No Obligation) I prefer to meet at my house where it is quieter but if you prefer another location that is fine too.
If we connect and I'm the Celebrant for you, then as Dr Seuss would say, "We are off and away"
At that point I will get you to sign a very simple contract to engage my services and secure your wedding date. I also take a deposit. I will give you a wedding information booklet to keep and take away it contains the legal side of what you have to do, Vows, readings and much more for you to read.
To discuss in detail as to what you require and your thoughts for the type of ceremony you want.
Vows can often appear daunting, but they don't have to be, that is why you have got me to help you. Together we will create a true and meaningful ceremony. Just the way you want it.
My philosophy is: It is Your Wedding Day so have it your way.
Once I have all the information that is required I will start on creating your own unique wedding ceremony, Every Bride and Groom is different and no ceremony is the same.
Then we will have further discussions either by phone, email or skype. We can be in contact as many times as you require. I then email to you the complete service to see if you are happy with it, or make changes wherever necessary.
Your rehearsal with the complete bridal party, if possible, including the Music person, the Parents, so everyone knows
what part they play in the ceremony.
Lets make this a fun time.
I will arrive on the day 30 minutes before the ceremony.
I like to check that everything is in place and ready for your celebration.
I will leave your copy of the Marriage Licence and a printed copy of your ceremony.
