Celebrant since 2006

I feel very fortunate to have worked as a celebrant for the past eleven years and I find my role very uplifting.

My ceremonies have been a celebration of diversity! They've ranged from the very traditional through to one-of-a-kind occasions. I've officiated at weddings with only two guests and also at very large ceremonies with up to 600 guests. I thrive on the interchange of ideas and cultures. So whether it’s a big celebration or an intimate and personal event, I can tailor your service to meet your needs.

Your wedding should be fun and as stress-free as we can make it! Because I believe that you don’t want to be rushed on your day, I won’t take on another service that day but will give your event my full attention.

Writing, planning and flexibility are all strengths of mine. I've written services and officiated for both celebrations and commemorations.

Services that I offer are:

Civil Union
Renewal of Vows
Baby Naming
Funerals & Remembrances
Special Occasions
I am based in Wellington but I'm also happy to officiate in the Wairarapa or in Hawkes Bay

Feel free to have a look at my website ( and check out my Facebook page (Bernadette Buckley – Celebrant).

I would love the opportunity to share your celebration and to help you create a memorable ceremony. I look forward to chatting with you so you can decide whether I am “the right fit” for your special day.
