Celebrant since 1996

I am a Celebrant based in New Plymouth,  have a strong interest in Theatre and am a founding member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand.   Obtaining a Certificate in Celebrant Studies from AUT added to my enthusiasm for and commitment to Celebrancy.   I also have a Licentiate in Speech and Drama from Trinity College in London and for many years enjoyed teaching effective speaking to people of all ages.   Through my training, I have a strong speaking voice and am clearly heard.

I am approachable and flexible and my 23 years as a Celebrant have afforded me vast experience with differing styles and venues.  The commitment of respect, friendship, communication and love between two people is an amazing gift to share, and I always feel very privileged to be a part of your magical day.   You may have your own ideas about a particular part of the Ceremony and I am very happy to include your wishes. I very much enjoy working with couples and my aim is to make your wedding a very friendly and memorable occasion.

Any inquiry within Taranaki would be considered by me.  Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
