Jane & Chris

"We had the honour of Anne as our celebrant for our vineyard wedding on Waiheke Island. Thankfully she gave us a lot of wonderful options in the months leading up to the day so we had plenty of time to think about what we wanted and with our preferences she created a beautiful ceremony that suited us. With her lovely calm nature she made us feel very relaxed and comfortable on the day which was so important given there's often so much stress surrounding the event. Thank you Anne for all your effort and creativity which was a major part of our special day." - October 2015

Melda & Graeme

"Anne thank you for making our day so special to us. The words in the service where perfect as it spoke to us and our family. You where so accommodating as we decided if we could do the ceremony on the beach in between showers. Thankfully the sun came out and shone on us. Very blessed" - October 2015

Yashika & Carlos

"We decided to meet with Anne after a recommendation from a family member. From the moment we sat down with her, we both knew that she would be the one whom we wanted to officiate our commitment to one another. What we appreciated the most about Anne was that she didn't have a one for all approach, she made us feel comfortable and listened to what we wanted for our ceremony, therefore our special day was tailored to exactly what we wanted. Thank you for being such an important part of our special day" - May 2015

Nick & Beth

"Throughout the process of planning our wedding and on the day itself, Anne was integral.Anne was very flexible and supportive, helping craft just the right ceremony for us. She provided a selection of ideas for readings we could have, and formats we could follow. But she also spent a lot of time on email and the telephone listening to our ideas, and working out a way to bring them to life. We were delighted with the result, which was a very personal ceremony using all the words we wanted to say. During the ceremony itself, Anne spoke wonderfully. She has a warm and strong voice, which carried well and enveloped the audience. Anne is very intelligent and articulate, and her voice was unfaltering and clear. She encouraged us throughout and put us at ease, for what is a very emotional and amazing day! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anne to anyone looking for a secular but deeply special wedding." - February 2014

Bronwen & Johnny

"Anne really was such an important part of our wedding day. The way she communicated with us (and my tears) in the lead up to the wedding were very comforting. We had several emails and skype calls to ascertain exactly what we were wanting from our service and we knew it might be a little more complicated than most, as we got married upon The R Tucker Thompson, a 26 metre long schooner anchored in The Bay of Islands. The service was beautiful, we wrote our own vows and had a couple of chosen readings in between. Anne was very open to us doing things just as we wanted, while providing us with the knowledge and guidance that we needed to make the ceremony all come together - and of course the words to make us legally husband and wife. I would recommend Anne one hundred times over." - January 2014
