Wedding Ceremonies



During our journey together, I will make sure your ceremony is not only unique to you, but that it has as much input from you as you wish. On your wedding day I will always be early to make sure everything is in order and to connect with your family and guests, so that everyone feels part of the day and they are not just spectators.

Together we will make your day unforgettable.

Once you have contacted me via phone, Facebook, or here from my website contact page, I will give you a call or we can communicate online or via Zoom/Skype/Facetime.

Here is some of what happens when we get together;

Let’s Meet!

I will come to you or you can come to me, or we can meet in Whangarei at a cafe for a coffee!

Our meeting is a no obligation chat to see if I am the right celebrant for you. You may at this stage want to talk about what you want for your ceremony. If you decide you would like me to be your celebrant, I will send you a guide to provide you with what I need to craft your ceremony and to get the ball rolling!

Book it in!

We will catch up again, personally or video time, which ever works for you. We will talk about selecting your date, picking a venue and your ceremony. All the finer details, so we can start calibrating the special day.


Writing the ceremony. The ceremony can be as simple or elaborate as you would like, but I will craft it to reflect YOU, your personalities and beliefs, your story told your way. I will send you a draft copy. Where needed we will tweak it as often as need be until you are happy – it is important to me that you have what you want.

Practise makes perfect

For all weddings, if at all possible, I really feel a rehearsal/walk through at the venue is essential. A practice run means being able to see yourself in the ceremony and it’s the best thing to help alleviate those nerves and emotions – creates confidence.

The big day

This is what we have all been planning and working towards and dreaming about. Let the magic begin! You can relax knowing that your ceremony will be the best it can be, as you will be completely prepared, and your family, friends and you all have the best day with wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Now join your hands, And with your hands, Your heart

Celebrating The End Of Lif


When the time comes, dealing with death is often difficult and heart breaking. Whether expected or unexpected, losing someone we love can be the hardest time of our lives.

As a funeral celebrant, I believe it is my responsibility to give voice to the memories of your loved one and to capture the essence of their life.

I can take some of the emotional weight by being present to you and yours and with respect and care weave your words, thoughts and memories of your loved ones life stories, into a dignified and memorable farewell  –  a well prepared ceremony can be emotionally uplifting while easing the pain of ongoing grief.

I look forward to meeting with you and your family to create a ceremony that reflects and celebrates your loved one – it is always a privilege to honour and officiate at a loved one’s last rite of passage.

She whom we love and lose is no longer where she was before. She is now wherever we are.
