Hello. My name is Anne Withington, and I’m an experienced Independent Celebrant based in beautiful Queenstown. Being a Celebrant is a fantastic “hobby” for me, not a “job”. I just love happy occasions .
I am appointed by the Registrar of Marriages to conduct "Registry Style" ceremonies for a set fee, which can be either at my home office (guests numbers are limited) or for a small additional cost I can travel to your venue of choice. Registry Style Ceremonies take no longer than 30 minutes and have a standard format. Couples are required to provide two witnesses and a translator if required.
For the more traditional style wedding I really enjoy working with people to create a professional personalised ceremony that reflects your individual personalities, backgrounds and interests and most importantly, is what you want.
Whether it’s a marriage/ civil union/ vow renewal ceremony, I recognise that it's my job to make sure your ceremony flows smoothly, so that you can just get on and enjoy your special time. Whether you're planning a large formal occasion or a small intimate ceremony, I'm happy to travel to your chosen venue, or to help you find the perfect spot if the most common venues are already booked for your chosen date and time.
Please contact me by phone or email to see if I’m the right Celebrant for you.
“Thank you so much for hosting such a lovely ceremony for us. We loved the ceremony – it was so personal, fun and exactly what we wanted. We’re sure you’ll have many satisfied customers in the future.”
