Celebrant since 1994

Weddings, renewal of vows, any commitment in our lives is important, that is why the world over, the combining of two people in marriage or civil union or partner commitment is considered one of the ultimate promises as humans we can make. I will work with both of you to find the words that best express what you want to say. Planning the ceremony, a lot of the information I need to write your ceremony, can be done via the internet. This gives you time to think and reflect when you see what has been written. Although I am based in Auckland I am prepared to travel to most places in the country both North and South islands. My speciality is elopement style weddings although I enjoy any wedding as it is the happiest of ceremonies. That is why my aim is to create for you ' perfection on your special day.'

As a funeral celebrant, my first priority is for those left behind. Together we will fulfill the wishes of your loved one and make sure you are comfortable with the words chosen to celebrate your loved one's life. I offer you a sympathetic, caring ceremony in the spirit you can relate to. When it is the celebration of a young life taken prematurely I can offer empathy with the parents and grandparents and not forget the siblings and the best friends of a vibrant young person. As Thorndon Wilder said:

There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love.
