Who am I

I am an Independent Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant.  This means I am registered with BDM (Births, Deaths and Marriages) to legally marry you or solemnise your civil union anywhere you may choose in New Zealand.

A professional Romantic

I am from County Down in Northern Ireland and I am inescapably a romantic. I live with my husband and two mighty girls in Clevedon.

I love weddings, civil unions, naming ceremonies and blessings of every kind.  As life is constantly changing and we are constantly evolving, ceremony provides a milestone, an anchor to a perfect point in time which we can always reflect on with joy.

I take my role as a celebrant very seriously.  This led to me completing the Certificate in Celebrant Studies through the Celebrant School of New Zealand in 2015.  This study, along with my membership of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand gives me:

  • Access to a network of like minded peers who can help me give you the best possible service for one of the most important days of your life
  • An opportunity to hone my public speaking, presentation and ceremony crafting skills
  • Access to resources and ideas so your ceremony can be as unique, interesting and wonderful as you always imagined it would be.
All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move
