Celebrant since 2008

You can have the romantic wedding of your dreams.

Traditional, Celtic, Spiritual, Polynesian or Oriental. You can have prayers, poems and readings - indoors or out in the Sunshine. You can also have Handfasting or Jump the Broomstick.

My Job: It’s my job to ensure that together you are at your very best - smiling, relaxed and in-the-moment. It’s also my job to ensure your guests are relaxed, happy and enthralled by a ceremony they feel part of. When we meet we can talk about why this shows in my reviews and why it will show in your photographs.

Registry style Wedding or Elopements: If you wish you can have a fun ‘Registry Office style’ wedding at my House & Garden on the hills overlooking Christchurch. I'll even provide the witnesses.

I've been 'VIP' tagged on for each of the past 6 years and below are some of my 215+ moderated Reviews

Dena Cowen-Willis, Bride: We recently celebrated our third anniversary and the greatest memories from the day (and not just from us) were the food, the music and Sean!

Marie Hurst, Bride: April 2017

My husband and I recently got married and it was such a perfect day. Sean was our celebrant and we feel as though he really contributed to providing the best ceremony.

We met with Sean a few times throughout the whole process. He was always keen to meet up, was very efficient, professional, very informative and experienced.

Before our ceremony started, Sean was keeping my husband’s nerves down by showing his great sense of humour and our guests before my bridal party arrived.

Sean, thank you so much for being our celebrant on such an important and special day of our lives.

Carmen Seah, Bride: February 2017

We chose Sean to be our celebrant. What a great decision that was. Sean was patient, insightful, experienced, and he has a great sense of humour.

He walked us through the whole process (numerous times), advised us of what to do (and sometimes what not to do), and made us feel calm and at ease. I would recommend Sean highly to be your marriage celebrant.

Sarah Simpson-Thomas, Bride: February 2017

We knew Sean was perfect from our first meeting with his wonderful sense of humour, love and passion for his work, and amazing Irish accent!

He was endlessly helpful assisting us in planning our ceremony, choosing the readings, and didn’t bat an eye even when we changed our plans 100 times.

On the day, Sean put everyone at ease and conducted the ceremony with warmth, professionalism and just the right amount of humour. We had so many comments on how fantastic he was!

Thank you, Sean, for being such a huge part of our wedding - it was the best day of our lives and you made it just perfect Highly highly recommended.

Martin Nieuwenhuize Groom: December 2017

Sean was a fun and enjoyable celebrant to have for our wedding. He made us feel relaxed and made the ceremony fun and filled with laughter and joy.

I highly recommend Sean for anyone seeking a celebrant who is relaxed and willing to thoroughly work with the requests of the bride and groom. Thank you again, Sean

Antonia Stallworthy, Bride: April 2016

We wanted a Celebrant that would make our Ceremony a success, so when we saw Sean’s reviews we were very interested.

He was very flexible with meeting times, was warm and made it clear he was available to meet up and go over whatever we needed.

Sean is quirky and funny, but also incredibly knowledgeable about weddings and thinks of the finer details. I knew that I could just turn up, walk down the aisle, and no matter what happened he was prepared.

The Ceremony was beautiful, the perfect length and everyone commented about how funny, loving but meaningful it was. He accommodated our Sand Ceremony and prayer from my parents and gave suggestions for wording during the Ceremony and Readings. We were rapt with Sean as our Celebrant.
