I am friendly, a great listener, a clear speaker and always positive. If you would like to be married by someone who feels like a mate; someone you can relate to and who guides you stress-free through the ceremony planning, then I may be the right celebrant for you!
I started as a Wedding Celebrant in 2010 at a friends request and at that time was the youngest registered Celebrant in Wellington. The 2nd youngest was 14 years older than me, so I instantly had quite the niche and found myself very busy each summer. After a few years I made the move to Auckland where I am currently based. I have clocked up over 600 ceremonies over the last 10 years, each one special and unique.
I offer personalised ceremonies written by myself specifically to represent your relationship. My style is a modern relaxed ceremony with a couple of laughs if appropriate. Light without losing the significance of the day. I am often complimented by guests after ceremonies and asked how long I have been friends with the couple – being asked that question is my personal idea of success.
I trained as an actor originally at NZs Drama School, Toi Whakaari, so have had professional vocal training and plenty of public speaking experience. I am not religious personally and believe passionately in authenticity. So when I speak I will be focused on your relationship with each other. However you are most welcome to include religious readings/vows that reflect your own (or your family’s) personal beliefs if you wish.
If you’d like to know more, or if you’d like to see that I’m the right fit for the two of you – I am happy to meet with you both (in person or via Skype), show you previous ceremonies I have written and chat about your options. Simply flick me an email with your wedding date and I’ll be in touch shortly.
“Thank you so much for helping us to create the perfect wedding day. We couldn’t have wished for a better day and better ceremony. The ceremony went absolutely perfect and you did such a wonderful job. Thank you again for all your hard work over these last couple months and for being a part of our special day. Nic loved the Arnold part in my vows and I especially loved the back rub promise from him. I'm definitely holding him to that.” - Nicolaus & Sarah
