Fran Lavin Celebrant

Sometimes it’s hard to know just where to start and that’s where I am here, to help people create a ceremony that is unique for you.

With a lot of experience in public speaking, I like people to laugh, think, feel and embrace their emotions. Captivating the audience, I work with couples to help them feel at ease and deliver a ceremony that best reflects who they are.

As well as being a celebrant, I’ve had several years of experience working as a wedding photographer, organising weddings, funerals, and many private and corporate events. Because of this I completely understand the need for attention to fine detail, clear communication and the managing of expectations.

Based on the Kapiti Coast at Peka Peka Beach, I also offer the environment for elopements from the accommodation, witnesses and photographer through to flowers, cake and picnic hampers I can organise this all for you.

No matter how big or intimate your wedding ceremony is, let’s make it special for you Call me for a chat.


If you want a celebrant that will go the extra mile and set the tone for a wonderful day, then Fran is the person for you.” - Mr and Mrs Golding

"Fran is an easy to talk to and engaging person. She makes you feel at ease and develops a rapport quickly and easily. Her years of experience allows her to provide great suggestions and insights into what can be a stressful day. Fran really loves this type of collaboration, as well as guides you on the journey. Highly recommended" - Daryl Smith

"Fran was our amazing wedding celebrant; we couldn’t have picked the most perfect person to marry us. We organised our wedding in 3 weeks as it was a surprise at our engagement party. Fran helped us organise everything we needed and more, we honestly can’t thank her enough for making our day as perfect as it was. We highly recommend Fran especially if you are planning a surprise wedding." - Mr & Mrs Enoch

"Fran was our wedding celebrant over the weekend. As soon as we spoke to her for the first time over the phone we were instantly put at ease. We then met at her beautiful home where she made us feel so comfortable. It didn’t take Fran long to get a feel for us and to learn what was important to us. Fran made everything so simple and easy. Our wedding ceremony was tailored to suit us and even included our children due to an idea that Fran had which just made our day that much more special. If you’re on the hunt for a marriage celebrant I highly recommend getting in touch with Fran. I would gladly ask Fran to be my wedding celebrant again in a heartbeat but for obvious reasons, I hope that doesn’t happen anytime soon!" - A & C
