Kia ora and welcome to my work as a celebrant.

As a celebrant, I work with people to create unique and memorable ceremonial events – funerals that celebrate life, marriages and civil unions, baby naming, family celebrations, even business events.

I call my ceremonial work the ‘poetic’ aspect of my working life. I bring a level of care and connection that comes with experience and commitment to being of service and creating the … good, just right, fun, meaningful… whatever is being sought for – ceremony.

Through ceremony of all forms I have the privilege of being with and guiding people through what I name the ‘yum/yuck’ of living. It is a privilege to share these times with each of you as my client and the feedback I get reflects the value that each of you experience.

Remember I offer free of charge ‘check me out’ first meetings
at my home or a phone call for overseas clients. Contact me . .

“My promise is to work with you creating a unique and divinely appropriate ceremony – whatever the celebration.”


Hello Kerry-Ann
Thank you so very much for your support and guidance with D… last week. The service was perfect and as I am sure you will have gleaned, an absolute reflection of just who he was. I would love for you to send me just the line we discussed on the day – it was a wonderful summary of why we lost him.
Thank you again.
J… and family.

“My dear Kerry-Ann you made a life-changing event so easy for our family … you were superb, warm, professional and well – just ‘special’. Thanks.” – Ann L.

Dear Kerry-Ann – thank you for turning our wedding ceremony into a celebration. You ensured that the day was full of light and life and laughter, for which we will always be grateful. Everyone is already telling us it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been too. Much love Jane & Joe

Dear Kerry-Ann
Just a brief email to record our gratitude for your role and organisation on our big day. Subsequent to our day, every adult that attended expressed their thoughts about what a beautiful ceremony it had been. It was also an unexpected bonus to have such an eloquent and elegant celebrant!
Thank you once again
Douglas and Christina

Hi Kerry Ann,
Well Heather and I are back to work and finally able to take a minute and reflect on what a wonderful wedding we had. The day turned out exactly as we had wanted it to and we both really enjoyed ourselves. We would like to thank you for the wonderful service that you did for us. From the first contact we had with you we were both confident you were the perfect person to do our wedding and we received so many positive comments from our friends and family that only reinforced our opinion. Your kind words and calming presence were very much appreciated and we really can’t thank you enough. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone that is getting married.
Many thanks, Jamie and Heather

Dear Kerry-Ann
Ross and I would like to thank you for a lovely ceremony. We wanted to find just the right person to be our celebrant and were so blessed to find you. We were very appreciative of the time you spent with us at the beginning and understanding what we wanted, for being professional, yet friendly and warm.
We also want to thank you for the way you delivered our ceremony which felt genuine and sincere and for the way you spoke in te reo.
You were an integral part of our day and think you did well in reflecting our outlook on love and a life together.
Thank you and kind regards
Angela and Ross

Hi Kerry-Ann

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for making our wedding such a lovely and special day. It was just perfect for us. The ceremony had right amount of loveliness with all of the pomp and fussiness avoided! 🙂 Many of the guests commented on how great you were and asked how we had found you! They were very impressed. Thank you for pulling it all together at such short notice, for tailoring it so well to our likes, for giving us such great ideas like the bubbles and for dealing with the wind/cyclone!

Big hugs Becky and Tim SMITH!!!!! (and Martha too of course!)
