Hello and congratulations
on your exciting decision to get married.
Congratulations for choosing the iconic Marlborough Region to say “I do”. If you have landed on this page you will already know and have seen the amazing locations you can choose to have your memorable wedding ceremony. Be it the incredible Marlborough Sounds, or a vineyard, or backyard venue, Marlborough offers amazing jaw dropping scenery right at your door step.
I have been lucky enough to be part of some of the most memorable weddings.
Being a celebrant is one of the best jobs, I love listening and chatting to you about our ideas, and getting to know you.
I ask lots of questions and find out how you meet fell in love, along with all the amazing fun filled adventures you have had along the way. From there I craft a bespoke ceremony that is unique to you, from contemporary to classic, I am open minded with a modern outlook on life and my ceremonies reflect this. You sign off on the ceremony before the BIG DAY. I always recommend a rehearsal, and I always arrive an hour before the ceremony where I deliver your wedding ceremony with mindful sincerity, and authenticity, making it a truly memorable ceremony that stays in the hearts and minds of friends family but more importantly, you the newlyweds for ever.
Although we are now allowed to gather in groups of 100, the rules of social distancing still apply. However, looking to the future this shift does provide more certainty when planning your special day. I understand it will still pose problems for families who will be travelling from overseas to New Zealand to attend and celebrate. So I totally understand couples wanting to pause on setting a date to tie the knot.
However, we can get the ball rolling, by meeting and beginning to write a first draft ceremony.
So please get in touch, I am keen to chat and hear all about your proposed wedding day plans.
Give me a call or email me
Outlined below is detailed information the services I offer and the process.
MY CEREMONY PHILOSOPHY
The transition to train to be a celebrant at the Celebrant School has been a natural progression from, teaching oral communication, event planning, owning my own business in Blenheim, along with training and managing staff, and the skills and life lessons I have learnt along the way, have dove tailed perfectly into my role as a celebrant.
It is a great privilege being a celebrant, and to share in loved ones special day, is an absolute honor.
I believe that ceremony captures the moments that really matter in life, and I seek to customize every ceremony to reflect you. I want to hear your stories: how you met, what’s important in your relationship, the quirks and contradictions that make you fabulous individuals. Together we will bring your stories to life, making your wedding ceremony UNIQUE - truly your own.
I look forward to meeting you both and together we can create your UNIQUE wedding ceremony.
