Your day, your ceremony.
Your wedding day should be exactly as you plan, a day that you look back on with pride and joy, and can use as a reference point together. With that in mind, it is essential that your ceremony captures the essence of your love and commitment. I take great pleasure in being asked to help you create a ceremony that is unique and special to you. I am able to listen to your expectations, to assist you as you write your own words, or to craft for you the words and ceremony which will truly reflect your very individual commitment to each other.
With over 30 years experience as a teacher, lawyer and now celebrant, I am well able to help you create the specific and personal commitment you will make to each other on your special day. The vows you make are individual, and you will want them clearly reflected in the words spoken at your ceremony. I am able to help you create the ceremony you want, to ensure that the legal requirements are carried out correctly, and registered appropriately within the required time.

"Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so very much for officiating our wedding! From the guidance you provided during the planning stage until rehearsal, you were a pleasure to work with. The ceremony of course, was PERFECT! We had guests praise your delivery and we could not agree more." - November 2017

"We just returned home from our honeymoon on the South Island, and I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special! Countless friends and family members remarked on how beautiful and personalized the ceremony was and the credit for that goes to you." - November 2017
Eileen & Nic
"Anne was absolutely amazing to work with! We are an Asian couple from Australia and went to NZ for our wedding and even with the complications of being across the sea, and our very unconventional wedding, Anne was so accommodating and very experienced. She was nothing short of amazing to make sure our day ran exactly the way we wanted it to, if not better! Thank you so much!" - September 2017
Josie & Jason
"We wanted an unconventional cocktail party wedding, and got married in a funky craft beer bar in front of the handpulls! Anne was absolutely wonderful – she listened to what we wanted, made some great suggestions, and performed a ceremony that was totally in tune with us. There was a lot of laughter and it was a very special moment. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Fantastic celebrant!" - March 2015
Darren & Fernando
"It was such a great pleasure to have Anne officiate our wedding ceremony for us. Anne actually came to us as a recommendation from another celebrant on the island and I have to say that Anne absolutely got us immediately upon our first visit. Anne really understood us and what we wanted from our day. Without a doubt Anne made our day just that little bit extra special." - December 2014

"We know that Jacqueline choosing you to be our celebrant was the best decision she made. This magical day would not have been as memorable without you. We so much enjoyed the way you presented our wedding vows and your reading. You were incredibly helpful and assisted us in many ways. The wedding would not have been so amazingly beautiful without you! Thank you again for helping to make this the most wonderful day in my life!" - November 2014
