Celebrant since 1998

Kia ora koutou

Through ceremony of all forms I have the privilege of being with and guiding people through what I name the “yum/yuck” of living. It is a privilege to share these times with each of you as my client and the feedback I get reflects the value that each of you experience; care, depth, flexibility and competence.
The gift of a good ceremony is that it can take us through the journey of whatever it is we are marking and allow us to celebrate, grieve, work through and re-enter our daily living enriched or at least with a sense of something well marked.
I have worked as a professional celebrant since 1998 when I became a registered independent marriage celebrant.  Now I offer funerals as my primary ceremony, followed by marriage and a range of other life transition’s ceremonies.  I call my ceremonial work the ‘poetic’ aspect of my working life.

I work with you providing guidance, a calming presence, professional organisation plus delivery and presence to match the ceremony, ensuring a relaxed and special event.
I offer a free of charge ‘check me out’ first meetings at my home or a Skype for overseas clients.  I meet all funeral clients at a meeting place of their choice.
