Celebrant since 2000

I have been a Celebrant since 2001 creating personalised ceremonies for over 500 wedding couples and  300 celebrations of life services. I always feel very privileged to listen to your ideas, assisting wherever possible to design and deliver a ceremony which works for you - your values, your personalities - and have fond memories of in the years ahead.  Other ceremonies I have led are ANZAC Remembrance Services, Naming Ceremonies, Recommitment of Vows and Ashes Interment or dispersal.
I operate from Ashburton but am prepared to travel to any other regions in NZ, especially in the wider Canterbury and the McKenzie country.  This does mean there will be a travel cost added to my usual fee.
Contact me to discuss your ceremony – I would love to talk about your ceremony.
Wedding Service:  We would like to say a huge thank you for such a wonderful ceremony and experience. It could not have gone any better and you were an awesome celebrant. You were extremely easy to deal and communicate with and were so relaxed (but with an amazing ability to get things done) that it rubbed off on us and made things so enjoyable.   Thank you for your guidance and the use of all your wedding materials for the ceremony. We definitely needed this, but it was awesome to be able to personalise our ceremony by picking and choosing the right words for us. You delivered the ceremony brilliantly.   So many people have specifically commented on how much they enjoyed our ceremony (even some of Adam’s friends who I would not expect to hear comments from!) and this made us very happy.  We will HIGHLY recommend you to anyone else, Lisa and  Adam
Service of Celebration:  Graham and I attended Tim’s funeral service - we thought it was the best service we have ever been to.  It was so fitting and the words were so appropriate.  Although it is a very sad time for all who knew him, the service really celebrated who Tim was. We just wanted to pass on our thanks and let you know that the service you held has really made us celebrate what a wonderful person he was. Diane and Graham
I would like to sincerely thank you on behalf of the family for the wonderful service you performed for Rich. It was exactly as I wanted it to be, light with a little bit of fun (and laughter) to reflect Rich\'s true character rather that dwell on the sick man he had been over his last few years of life. I have received so many positive comments from people who attended the service and all agreed it was a perfect send off for Rich.  There was never any doubt in my mind that I wanted you to lead Rich\'s service and I am so grateful you were available. Your guidance was invaluable and I can\'t thank you enough for your support in the days leading up to and the day of the service. Together with the team at Paterson\'s, you all made a tough time much easier. Sue
