With my guidance and experience I can help create your customised ceremony to suit your style. I believe in equality. It doesn’t matter who you love, what matters is that you have love in your life! I love themes even subtle things like a colour scheme or general overall look. I can work in with your theme including what I wear on the day (I love dressing up) and planning what I wear to your ceremony is all part of the fun for me.
Luckily I live near the beach just north of the beautiful Kapiti Coast with my super supportive husband and our 2 very pampered cats. I love animals and pets, especially including pets in wedding ceremonies, after all they are part of the family too!
A question I often get asked is why did I become a Celebrant and the answer is… I’ve always wanted to for ages because I love the rituals and structure to ceremonies especially the songs and music. It’s kind of like putting on a stage show, though on a more intimate scale. I care heaps about making sure it all goes well, after all we only get one go at this once in a lifetime occasion. Also it’s really great to get to do public speaking without the focus being on me, it’s all about you as a couple, along with your support crew of friends, family and guests all having fun together on your special day.
I have been Registered as an Independent Marriage Celebrant since 2018.
I have achieved my Certificate in Celebrancy and the Toastmasters Certificate in Communication.
I am a Validated member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (VCANZ).
