Syd Walker Celebrant

Wouldn’t it be great if you and your guests felt totally engaged, richly alive and present at your ceremony – part of something truly special?

You should love your ceremony. It’s for you, and about you.

As a celebrant, I will work alongside you to create a bespoke ceremony, which is engaging, memorable and filled with joy and love.

Compassion and an interest in working with different communities, and the experience and insight gained from it, has been the reason I chose to become a celebrant. My varied experience all helps to ensure your special day runs smoothly and is a positive and rewarding experience.

I aim to make it all as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. It really would be a privilege to help with your special day.

I am happy to do weddings at a moment’s notice if I’m available, or you can book me for up to a year and a half in advance. I would be happy to tramp through a forest, wear a dress, or anything else that complements your theme and incorporate something from your religious or cultural tradition. I am based on the beautiful North Shore of Auckland, but happy to travel to wherever I’m asked.

I recommend that we have an initial obligation-free meeting for an hour or so allowing me time to learn more about you and to help you put your mind at ease and decide whether I’m the right celebrant for you.

"... We were very impressed with his professionalism and good ideas which wouldn’t even cross our minds. The resources he provided us with had an array of information and styles to draw from and we felt this really meant we could design a ceremony that was just right and represented us as a couple. He was great at the ceremony, calm, very professional and relaxed! With his help, we realised that dreams do come true. We highly recommend him and we are 100% sure our wedding couldn’t have gone better. Thank you, Syd, for making our day such a special one!" - Alina & Mihai Totu
