Celebrant since 2007

In my work as a marriage celebrant, I enjoy helping couples create a ceremony which reflects their unique relationship. Together we design a special, personal ceremony.

I have been working as a celebrant since 2006 when I completed a Certificate in Celebrancy from Auckland University of Technology. I am passionate about my work as a celebrant which follows on from a career in education, especially teaching English and modern languages. I speak German and French fluently and also perform ceremonies in these languages. I also have both training and extensive experience in public speaking.

I support a code of conduct and on-going education for celebrants which is why I belong to the Celebrants Association of New Zealand. I served as President of the Wellington / Manawatu Branch for five years (2008-2012).

Most of the ceremonies I perform are in and around Wellington. However, I do perform ceremonies in other places by invitation. Other services I offer include:

• Renewal of vows

• Namings

• Funerals
