Celebrant since 2015

Are you looking for a Celebrant who is both be sensitive to your personal needs and also confident in addressing groups of people. I bring my caring and skills from broad professional and life experience to help make sure that your special occasion just the way you want it to be.
In our bicultural and multicultural society the first choice of many people will be to have a celebrant from within their own culture. If this is not possible for you, or you choose otherwise, I offer a culturally sensitive alternative. In choosing me as your Celebrant you can be assured that your cultural needs will be identified and responded to. For Maori I offer an ability to learn Te Reo Maori scripts and good pronunciation.

Weddings and Civil Unions
Calm, caring professional service. I can help you decide on themes and wording for your special day. We can make it as simple or rich in details as you wish; all within your cultural, spiritual or secular preferences. I look forward to helping your special day be all you dream it to be.

Naming Ceremonies
Welcoming and naming the new little ones can be marked with special ceremony. As a parent and grandparent I understand full well the magnitude of this time. It would be my honour to conduct a service that expresses your heartfelt wishes.

Funerals
With my counsellor skills and compassion you can count on me to care for you during the intense time of arranging and holding a funeral. Loss within my own family has shown me the need to keep the focus on you – the nearest and dearest – who most knows what the recently departed would want. Where you are unsure or overwhelmed I can offer you options for your service. I will enjoy hearing about your loved one and what they meant to you.
