As a trained Wedding Celebrant I understand how important it is to select the right celebrant ,for your ceremony. Let me tell you a little about myself and you can decide whether I am the right celebrant for you.
I've spent the last 35 years living in Marlborough with my partner and our two kids. During this time I was actively involved in the arts community, as a Speech and Drama teacher, a Theatre Practitioner, and Marlborough’s Art's Co-ordinator. I also worked alongside local businesses, establishing the Marlborough Farmers Market and most recently my own start up business - CPR Coffee Roasters. In 2011, I was awarded the HER Marlborough Business Woman of the Year. In 2013, I sold the business, and ran the New York Marathon(a bucket list goal).In 2014 we moved to Auckland to be nearer our adult children. Bill and I have enjoyed settling into Auckland life, and the new opportunities it offers.
In 2015, I obtained the Speech NZ Diploma in Professional Speaking with Distinction and was awarded a Scholarship.
My background has given me the skills required to create, and deliver ceremonies that honour life’s transitions. Furthermore, I am also able to share this skill through coaching your family and friends, with readings and social speeches in preparation for ceremony, my services are listed on the social speeches page under ceremonies.
I am based in Marlborough over the summer season,December - February so I am readily available to perform your ceremony. Through my community and business interests I have established great relationships with local businesses in Marlborough that I believe are worthy of your consideration, when planning your ceremony. I have shared some of them on the + Friends page. These contacts will assist you ,with your ceremony planning. For the remainder of the year I am based in Auckland where I have begun to build a Friends base here.
Before you check out the rest of my website I think it is important to add a brief around my philosophy on ceremony and how I work.
I believe that ceremony can capture the moments that really matter in life - your life. Therefore I seek to customise every ceremony to reflect you. This means I want to hear your stories and bring them to life, making your ceremony UNIQUE - truly your own.
I look forward to meeting with you and together we can create your UNIQUE ceremony.
