Celebrant since 2014

Kia ora

It is my privilege to serve my local community on the Coromandel Peninsula as a registered Independent Celebrant.

My aim is that your special ceremony, designed with love and personal meaning, will elevate everyday moments into the realm of the sacred.

I have officiated at weddings in a great variety of beautiful places, mostly outdoors on beaches, at a marae, in campgrounds, even on an island in a stream, or in a healing pyramid.  I support the New Zealand Marriage Equality Act 2013 which gives all couples the same legal rights.

My professional  background is in the performing arts, music teaching and writing. I am also a singer-songwriter, poet, and environmentalist who loves to celebrate life!  It would be an honour share in your journey and to craft for you the ceremony that you want -  in the style you want. Do contact me for a no-obligation discussion, by skype if you are overseas.


Stephanie is such a vibrant friendly person and was the perfect celebrant. She was organised, and made the ceremony so easy to plan. Her flexibility meant we could change what we wanted to and add in our own changes but she provided us with an outstanding framework which just made life so easy! ... She spoke very well and everything went perfectly. I would highly recommend Stephanie if you want a laid back stress free ceremony.

Dave Nicholls and Alina Zhubrina, Whangapoua Beach, Coromandel Peninsula.  March 5th 2016

At every step toward our wedding day, Stephanie was there to guide, support and direct us through the exciting and life changing process...

The intimate and personal service that Stephanie performed with much grace, sensitivity and relevance was a perfect reflection of our eight year relationship. Our guests were moved by a ceremony which showed much respect for our lives together and was infused with much love and promise for a prosperous future. Tears of joy were flowing along with laughter and beaming smiles, much due to Stephanie's presentation, planning and understanding of who we are as individuals and as a couple. We can highly recommend Steph for your special day. In every way she made our day the most special in our lives.

Scotty Redding and Phil Stokes. January 2014

Just two weeks before Christmas, we decided to marry, in the Coromandel.
We wanted the simplest wedding in a wooded glade with just our children, a few friends and blood red rose petals to mark the spot.

Stephanie was recommended to us as a Celebrant and we were delighted to find she was perfect for us. From the moment we spoke with Stephanie on the phone, she gave helpful guidance and support, always with respect and humility but also proactively and with authority.

Stephanie helped us write wedding vows that we will repeat to each other often in the years ahead. Stephanie McKee helped make a day that will remain with us forever. Thank you.
