It's your special day and you want it to reflect your personality and individuality.
Celebrate in style with a unique ceremony we've tailored together. I offer a stress-free build up, combining soul-inspiring words and readings and attention to detail in the style you choose. Whether it's traditional or modern, barefoot on the beach or a romantic garden setting, I will help you achieve the feeling and mood you want to create.
My role as your marriage celebrant is to work with you through the whole marriage process, culminating in the actual marriage ceremony. Pre-marriage meetings are scheduled where we work together to plan your wedding with the emphasis on making it a special life event for you.
I have a selection of marriage vows, readings etc., that we can use as a starting point and work from there to design your ceremony to make it unique and special for you.
I am also available for Naming Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows and Funerals.
My wedding celebrant service involves two meetings with you prior to the wedding to discuss the format of the ceremony - covering the legal aspects and any personal touches you would like included. I offer resources and ideas, and then write your ceremony - making it as personal to you as possible. Then I will walk you through the ceremony at a half-hour wedding rehearsal (at the wedding venue) and then, of course, guide you through your big day.
My charge is $500 ($100 non-refundable deposit when you confirm the booking, balance to be paid ten days before the wedding. A travel fee will also apply if the wedding venue is outside Hamilton city).
Choosing a wedding celebrant is an important part of planning for your wedding. I am happy to meet for a no-obligation chat over coffee before you make your decision.
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did with our ceremony. Everyone enjoyed our ceremony and are still commenting on how perfect it was. Your help and preparation leading up to our wedding was appreciated by us both. We will definitely be passing your name on to others that may need a celebrant.

As I begin to take stock of the last ten days I want to thank you again for what you did for us and for S. You were wonderful and you did an amazing job. I really appreciated the reverence of your blessing and of your words at the burial. You were everything we could have wished for in a celebrant. Thank you again.
We would like to express our appreciation for the support you provided as celebrant for the funeral of our mother and mother-in-law Eunice Chapman. In particular you picked up on the ‘flavour’ of the atmosphere our family was trying to achieve and guided the proceedings to the extent that it more than achieved the emotional atmosphere we desired. We would also like to acknowledge your strong interpersonal skills highlighted in your ability to work with my elderly father in a calming yet professional manner.Thank you for making the day memorable and a true celebration of Eunice’s life.
