As Celebrant, my ultimate aim is to create and conduct a Ceremony that You have dreamed of, one that reflects Your unique style and personality.
If you need help to create Your dream wedding, I will gladly assist you with choices, ideas and suggestions. I love the challenge of creating the ceremony for You and of sharing your love and happiness on the day.
Since today celebrations are multi-cultural and multilingual, I can also offer a ceremony conducted in a number of other languages, especially in Portuguese and German. Fluent in English, Portuguese and German, and with ability in Spanish and French, I am able to add that extra dimension to the ceremony, especially in a mixed culture ceremonies.
I am happy to officiate at same-gender weddings.
Although based in Auckland, I am happy to consider travelling to where you may need me.

"Tim & Jana’s wedding day at Castaways – one of our favourite Auckland wedding venues – was a relaxed & cruisy day, with friends & family from NZ and overseas joining them to celebrate. A mix of kiwi & German culture, sweeping views of the sea & clifftops, with our lovely celebrant Aurora Ward."
Peter & Jeff: "Planning a wedding in Auckland when we live in Sydney was never going to be easy. Aurora possesses the perfect balance of humour, experience, skill and flexibility to really help us with our planning. With Auroras help, we got the wedding ceremony we really wanted, while she gently steering us away from some potential mistakes. On the day we really appreciated her support and were able to relax and enjoy our special day with our family and friends. We feel very lucky to have found Aurora and recommend her to you."
Samuel and Mary: "A huge thank you to Aurora for helping make our day so special. The day went very smoothly and Aurora was really flexible and knowledgeable in helping us plan our ceremony. Aurora was very kind, approachable and relaxed taking the stress out of our special day."
Rebecca and Awa: "Aurora offered great advice but really listened to what we wanted to include in our ceremony and what was important to us, she was quick to respond to any questions we had and was great in helping us to incorporate some Maori traditions into our ceremony also. She was well presented on the day, professional and really made an effort to make the ceremony special for us. We were planning our wedding in Auckland from Palmerston North but contacting Aurora wasn’t a problem as she would Skype and email us regularly to ensure everything was planned without any stress or worry. We were really glad we had her there as part of our day and would recommend her to others."
