What I Offer
Being a celebrant is one of the most rewarding and privileged careers I have ever had and I will ensure your special day is one to remember. Every Wedding tells a story, so the ceremony I design for you will be to your specifications. I will ensure all the legal aspects are taken care of for you.
Following your initial interview, we will schedule another date that I will meet with you to discuss your ceremony, vows, music etc and continue to make changes as required. I do recommend that we have a rehearsal, and if at all possible your entire bridal party should be present at this rehearsal, preferably the day before your wedding, this ensures I know all of your wishes regarding readings, order of service etc.
If distance is a problem, I am happy to Skype, text, private message or email. The important thing to remember when planning your special day is that it is fun and memorable.
As a registered Marriage and Civil Union celebrant affiliated to CANZ (Celebrants Association of New Zealand) I will do my utmost to ensure your wedding day is a memory you will treasure forever.
Garden Weddings: Palmerston North has so many wonderful gardens you can choose from for your wedding ceremony. A couple of my favourites include The Rose Gardens at the Esplanade and Kinsale Gardens.
Church Weddings: There is one church in Palmerston North that celebrants are permitted to officiate in and that is the beautiful little Community Church at Aokautere.
Home Weddings: Some of the most intimate and relaxed weddings I have officiated at have been held in private homes, either in the garden or lounge room.
We can make it as formal or informal as you wish. I am able to help you with vows, ring exchanges, readings and suggestions to make your ceremony the most memorable day of your lives.
