Celebrant since 2004

I have been crafting and conducting ceremonies throughout New Zealand, for over a decade. I am based in Nelson and I conduct ceremonies throughout New Zealand.
​I am a Registered Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant ,with a Certificate in Celebrant Studies, from the Celebrant School of New Zealand.
​​As well as weddings, I conduct funerals, blessings ,and ceremonies for baby naming and the renewal of vows. I create ceremonies for any life transition, or rite of passage, helping you honour the moment, with a meaningful and memorable ceremony.

I strongly believe in the power and significance of ceremony and ritual in people’s lives. I love creating ceremonies which enrich and strengthen relationships, family, whanau and community.
I am committed to creating ceremonies which reflect the dreams, values and beliefs of my clients. I therefore work closely with you to craft a ceremony, which is as individual and unique as you and your family/whanau are - a true reflection of the important relationships in your life.

I particularly enjoy helping couples - both heterosexual and same-sex - to celebrate their commitment and love for each other, in a style which feels right for them - formal or informal, traditional or contemporary.
I am very happy to help couples and families/whanau to honour their ethnic, cultural or religious backgrounds, by incorporating aspects of these ,into their ceremonies.

In my celebrant work I draw on my own family background and my professional experience as a teacher, counsellor and supervisor with many community involvements. I’ve been married for 37 years and I have 3 three adult children and 2 grandchildren.
