I have been crafting and conducting ceremonies throughout New Zealand for over a decade.
I am a Registered Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant and I am a member of the Celebrants' Association of New Zealand.
I have a Certificate in Celebrant Studies from the Celebrant School of New Zealand.
In my celebrant work I draw on my own family background and my professional experience as a teacher, counsellor and supervisor with many community involvements.
I’ve been married for 35 years and I have 3 three adult children and 2 grandchildren.
I also conduct funerals, blessings and ceremonies for baby naming and the renewal of vows. In fact I create ceremonies for any life transition, or rite of passage, helping you honour the moment with a meaningful and memorable ceremony.
I strongly believe in the power and significance of ceremony and ritual in people’s lives. I love creating ceremonies which enrich and strengthen relationships, family and community.
I am committed to creating ceremonies which reflect the dreams, values and beliefs of my clients. I therefore work closely with you to craft a ceremony which is as individual and unique as you are ~ a true reflection of the important relationships in your life.
I particularly enjoy helping couples - both heterosexual and same-sex - to celebrate their commitment and love for each other in a style which feels right for them - formal or informal, traditional or contemporary.
I am very happy to help couples honour their ethnic, cultural or religious backgrounds by incorporating aspects of these into their wedding ceremony.
I am based in Nelson but I conduct ceremonies throughout New Zealand.
The Nelson (Whakatu) Tasman region has many unique indoor wedding venues.
The gardens, parks, mountains, beaches, rivers and mountains of the region offer some fantastic outdoor locations too.
