“What matters to me is that your love is celebrated in a way that’s as beautiful and unique as you are.”

So you are getting married? CONGRATULATIONS! This is such a wonderful time in your lives, and it would be my pleasure to help you acknowledge and celebrate the love between you.

All of my ceremonies are personalised; I’ll work alongside you, every step of the way, to create the Ceremony YOU are happy with.

B E G I N N I N G S 

We begin with a chat over the phone, before arranging a no-obligation first meeting (via Skype if you are based overseas) – to see if I am the right Celebrant for you.

If you decide that I am (YAY!), then we will get straight to work bringing your dream to reality.

I will make the process simple, enjoyable, and am incredibly efficient and reliable.

I am always available to answer your questions, at any time, throughout the process.

I don’t book more than one Wedding a day (actually – at the moment, with being a full-time mama, I’m not booking more than one Wedding a week!) so you will find my service to be attentive.

My fee varies, depending on exact location and requirements – but is generally around the $600 mark for an Auckland wedding on a weekend. A 50% deposit will secure the date for you and cover the costs of my time and resources in creating your personalised ceremony. The remaining 50% is due before our rehearsal, and is inclusive of my travel to/from both the rehearsal and ceremony, as well as my officiating duties. (Additional travel costs apply for Waiheke weddings, at a fee of $150 per return trip).

Please contact me for an exact quote, or to arrange a no obligation first meeting – I’d love to hear from you!
