Celebrant since 2013

Hello, and welcome!

I live in Auckland with my husband and young family, and it’s been my privilege to officiate a large number of marriage ceremonies, funerals and naming celebrations, since 2013.

I obtained my Certificate in Celebrant Studies from The Celebrant School in 2011, where I am now a lecturer for the “Marriage and Civil Unions” module.

I’m proud to be actively involved in CANZ, as Chairperson of the Auckland Branch.

My role as a celebrant is the culmination of a lifelong passion for words… and talking!

My previous career as a lawyer and legal-editor honed my professional skills in writing, public speaking, facilitation and organisation, and I am proud to combine these with my personal passion for discovering people’s stories, cultures, languages and beliefs.

I believe that the basis of a well-crafted ceremony is effective, open, and full communication. What I present on your behalf will include your words as much as possible, in an authentic and meaningful way, and allow your story to be told with sincerity, feeling, and a few laughs along the way.

So please get in touch!
