I have been a Registered Independent Marriage Celebrant since 1996 and over those years I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of couples create their own personalised and unique wedding ceremony. I have also been a funeral celebrant since 1993 and available to officiate at funerals and baby-namings.
With home bases in both Christchurch and Dunedin I am available to meet with you in either city. If you are overseas, or elsewhere in NZ, Skype is a wonderful way to communicate. I have a great sense of humour and you will find me friendly and outgoing with the ability to put you at ease and calm any stressful or awkward situations.
Experience enables me to anticipate and therefore eliminate any problems that may arise. I am confident and well-spoken and will listen to your needs and requests, offering suggestions and ideas if and when appropriate.
While active in a Christian Church I am also very flexible and happy to incorporate your own religious and cultural traditions, or to conduct completely secular ceremonies. I have an adult family and 8 grandchildren (at present!) I love children and having spent many years working, in particular, with 4-6 year olds, I welcome and encourage children to be part of my ceremonies.
I encourage you to contact me for an obligation free interview.
