I am a Wellington-based singer and manager with The BeatGirls, one of NZ’s top entertainment groups. The BeatGirls have performed all over the world and extensively throughout NZ at many different events including hundreds of weddings.I have over 30 years of experience in the music industry along with theatre and public speaking and I am honoured to say I can now add ‘Celebrant’ to my title. I really enjoy writing the ceremony and personalising it to each couple. I am also very supportive of gay marriage.
First and foremost my role is to officiate, but of course before the big day there’s a lot of ground work to cover to ensure you have a happy and stress-free Ceremony.Initially, I will let you know what the legal requirements andpaperwork are, and then meet to discuss your ideas.Because every couple is different, it’s important to make sure we tailor your Ceremony to reflect your relationship and personal style, making it truly memorable, whether it’s formal or informal,traditional or themed.As a big part of my work also involves event management, I am able to offer extra info on how to plan the order of you rCeremony, ensuring things run smoothly and, if desired, a few additional services on top such as…• Music consultation – playlists for before, during and after your ceremony• Sound system – tech and venue advice . I am able to project my voice well without amplification however certain venues may require something more.• Singing – if you want something a little different I am able to sing a song, I have a range of great songs from which you can request or you can chose your own.• Theming – should you want novelty or humorous I am more than happy to oblige!• DJ’s, entertainment, bands for after the Ceremony.Photographer, Caterer.Travelling is no problem – we can Skype and email then rehearse if need be. The same goes for anyone who lives overseas coming to NZ.
The Ceremonies I offer are wedding, same sex, vow renewal, naming, funeral.I am registered with Births, Deaths and Marriages and also a member of C.A.N.Z.THE SINGING CELEBRANT(ALWAYS IN TUNE WITH YOUR CEREMONY!)
