Celebrant & Host

A people person with the gift of the gab and all the local knowledge to help! 

Choosing the right Celebrant is very important and I am happy to meet with you both for a free initial chat preferably in person but we can via SKYPE also. I celebrate LOVE in all it's diversity and uniqueness without discrimination and acknowledge all LGBTQI couples.

Once we have decided to work together I will then send you a Wedding Resource Kit containing  all the information you need for applying for your marriage licence, ideas for readings, how to write vows, creative ceremony ideas, locations and more!

I will guide you step by step through the process of planning and writing your unique ceremony giving you unlimited email communication.

We will have a rehearsal before your wedding day to calm your nerves and walk through the ceremony so you can just relax on the big day.

Knowing this is your important day I'd like to turn the vision into reality !

Congratulations, you are obviously planning your big day and I’m thrilled you are looking at this website and considering me to assist.

I would love to meet and discuss plans with you and put together a wedding ceremony that is memorable for you both.

I meet my wife many moons ago and I think I chose well! We married here locally on a remote island accessible by jet boats and a luxury launch, a special day memorable to us and our guests. I'm here now wanting to help other happy couples make a happily ever after story.

I'm a Queenstown local so I've got plenty of knowledge about what works and what doesn't in this town. I know every nook and cranky around here too and boy we've got some amazing spots where you could say those words like "I do". So if you want a guy that is open minded to anyone couple, any ethnicity, any gender, any religion, then let's talk. Here's to a ceremony without the stress where I help with all aspects from writing vowels through to ceremony rehearsals. A fresh professional but fun approach. A guy with romance in his heart and a great sense of humour.
