About Me


I am a Marriage Celebrant and Civil Union Celebrant registered with the Department of Births, Deaths and Marriages in New Zealand.
I will do all I can to support and assist you in making your ceremony all you wish it to be.
I welcome enquiries from all parties, including same- sex couples wishing for either a marriage or civil union ceremony.

I commit to only 1 ceremony on any given day which means I am there solely for you on the day.
I am open and comfortable with traditional and non-traditional ceremonies, with formal and informal ceremonies and with those with a sense of fun or more serious in tone. The ceremony is yours and it is about what you are wanting.

I am Central Otago based but happy to travel anywhere in New Zealand to perform your ceremony.
As well as weddings and civil unions I am available for funeral ceremonies.

Initial meeting:
I like to meet with you initially to first make sure that you are comfortable using me as your celebrant. There is no fee or obligation for this meeting. If you are happy to proceed with me as your celebrant we can go from there and work out together the best way to ensure your ceremony is what and how you want it to be.
