I am legally permitted to perform your ceremony anywhere you wish, from lakeside to mountain top.
I can help you to write your own vows or give you examples of vows you may choose from. It can be a simple ceremony, or more involved adding in readings, music, songs and anything else you have in mind for your dream wedding.
My fee includes an initial meeting either in person, online , or over the phone so that you can get a feel if I am the right person for you.
If you decide to go ahead we will confirm the date and from here we will work together to find out just what you want. I will write up a bespoke ceremony for you which we can discuss and change as necessary until we have it 100% perfect. This may involve another face to face meeting or skype/phone/email. This may depend on your location.
Usually couples like to have a rehearsal. This helps everyone know where they need to be and settles any last minute nerves. Often we hold the rehearsal the day before so that the full wedding party can attend.
I will assist you in your application for your marriage license and give you all the information you will need.I can promise I will do my utmost to make your day as special as you have always imagined it to be.
Lets just run away! You have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. The person you want to marry, but you don’t
want the big wedding to go with it. Wanaka is the perfect elopement destination with so many options for the perfect wedding location. Mountain and Heli weddings, lakeside beach weddings, woodland or river bank settings.
The process is similar to any other wedding just without all the guests. You will need 2 witnesses, often couples bring a couple of friends or family but I can provide witnesses if it is literally just the 2 of you. Often the photographer and helicopter pilot are honoured to do this special job. I promise your wedding will be unique, and made all the more special as the emphasis is truly on the 2 of you sharing your love with each other.
I can’t wait to be part of your day.
Vow Renewal Ceremony
Whether it is one year, 10 years or 25 years since you first said “I do”, renewing your vows is the perfect way to reaffirm your love for each other. Your ceremony will be tailored to you and your story and will help relive happy memories and fun times from your lives together.
Sometimes it is an intimate ceremony with just the two of you, or can include children or a wider selection of friends and family. What ever you choose it is a great way to say “We still do”.
Baby Naming Ceremony
A baby naming ceremony is a celebration of the new little person in your life. Naming ceremonies are highly personalised. There is no legal requirements of what must be included so there is total freedom to reflect the family and their wishes. They can be done at any age and are often combined with a first birthday celebration. Being the mother of triplets I know what it can be like trying to organise an occasion around nap times, feedings, and lets face it, the odd tantrum or screaming match. So I am very understanding of your needs. A Naming Ceremony is a great way to bring family and friends together to wish your little one all the best in their future, and celebrate the milestone in your life.
