Celebrant since 2009

Kia Ora, I am Jann Hook and I’m thrilled and privileged to be able to offer my services as an innovative, creative and vibrant Marriage and  Funeral Celebrant. I am a registered member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand and have served on the CANZ National Executive team for the last seven consecutive terms. I am indeed honoured to be one of the first Celebrnats to be awarded the VCANZ status (Validation of a CANZ Member)
Along with my husband Trevor, I live and work at Te Mahia Bay Resort in the Kenepuru Sound, Marlborough. Over the past 28 years I have been involved with some amazing weddings, and created numerous ceremonies both here at the resort and throughout our Marlborough region. Each and every ceremony is as diverse as the couple involved, I love this challenge and relish working with clients in creating their bespoke wedding day service just as they dreamed it would be. Every ceremony I create is unique to the client, whether it be a 1st time marriage, a re-commitment, a naming ceremony or 2nd time around wedding.
My other passionate celebrant role is that of a Funeral Celebrant. I endeavor to undertake these services with compassion, empathy, strength and dedication. More recently I have been involved with our newly formed Fare-well Trust offering patients and their families choices when bringing the palliative care of their loved ones back home to the community.

Testimonials from my clients:
Jann’s professionalism and bubbly personality shone through with her celebrancy role on our big day, and we knew we couldnt have found someone more perfect for our day. She suggested loving touches like the lighting of a candle to recognise those who couldnt be there, and the special sand ceremony to involve our children on the day. These touches made our wedding memorable and unique. I would highly recommend Jann the Te Mahia team for anyone considering a beautiful location and fabulous service.

Dear Jann,
Thank you so much for everything you did when we had our wedding at Te Mahia in February. Your hospitality, help and support was second to none and absolutely fantastic. We so much appreciated everything you did, especially as at times I’m sure you even went beyond the call of duty. Everyone is still talking about the wedding and how it was the most relaxed wedding they had been to. You played such a big part in helping us make this a memorable day and this we will be eternally grateful for.

Kind regards Andrea & John

...Imagine getting married amidst a perfect setting, where every attention to detail is perfect and having a celebrant who can articulate the love and friendship that you have for each other with such meaning and laughter along with a touch of cheekiness that it makes your special day just that much more special, well we did and it was unbelievable. Thank you, Jann, for your hard work, calming nature and inspiring words, you have given us memories we will always treasure.

Love Charles and Rochelle.


Dear Jann,
A HUGE thank you to you for being able to organize our wedding ceremony exactly how we wanted from the opposite side of the world. It was so comforting having you there with me knowing you already. We loved how our ceremony flowed and both appreciate your time, organisation and persona so much! XX
Love Katie and Ajit.
