Wanaka & Queenstown Marriage Celebrant


Wanaka Wedding Celebrant

Congratulations, you are obviously planning your wedding day and I'm pleased you have visited my website. This is a very busy and exciting time for a couple setting out on the road to marriage. There is a lot for you to organise and you certainly need someone to conduct your  Ceremony. That's where I come in. I would love to help you to put together a wedding ceremony which reflects the wishes of both of you.

Maybe you want a simple lakeside or mountain top ceremony with your own vows, which I can help you write, or you may want an elaborate wedding with some traditional elements such as sand ceremonies, candle lighting, wine ceremony or  readings and poetry. The ceremony itself should have that personal touch that fits with both of you as a couple.


My service includes an initial consultation with you, that is either by phone, Skype (by appointment), email or in person . I will then send you  examples of vows based on what we have discussed and from there we can tailor your ceremony and your vows to exactly suit your wishes. I can also send you many examples of readings and poems that may be suitable for inclusion in your ceremony.

Once the ceremony is taken care of, I will guide you through the application for your Marriage License .

If you are arriving a day or two before your big day I also recommend a rehearsal if your time allows. This is a great chance to iron out any last minute problems to ensure that your wedding day ceremony goes without a hitch. If you are coming to New Zealand from overseas, I can apply for your license on your behalf so that all you have to do is to pick it up on your way to your chosen destination. Because we have so many resources available within our organisation,  I can really make it easy for overseas couples in all areas of wedding planning. I can provide a portable sound system and a beautiful wooden wedding table


I conduct Wedding Ceremonies in Wanaka, Queenstown, Lake Tekapo and Mt Cook
