CONGRATULATIONS on finding that special person to spend the best of your life with. I’m a friendly, experienced Celebrant who will support you in getting the ceremony you desire and to create wonderful memories of your special day. Unlike many celebrants, I can also provide a ceremony venue option at ‘Casabella’, my country home in Kumeu.

I love weddings! (and Civil Unions). As a celebrant, I am committed to designing a personalised ceremony and delivering it with a warm friendly style (at your venue or mine). When it comes to ceremonies, there are few ‘must dos’, so you have a lot of choice. It can be formal and intricate or casual and simple, even themed. Some couples don’t know where to start, so I am happy to offer ideas, suggestions, readings and vows.

‘Casabella’ means ‘Beautiful Home’ It is set on an idyllic 10 acre country property Casabella has a mediterranean feel and is a mix of established gardens, orchards, woodlands and open fields. It even has a covered courtyard as a wet weather alternative. ‘Casabella’ is a perfect affordable ceremony venue for an intimate – medium sized ceremony up to 40 people. Casabella is 5 minutes from Kumeu with all its fabulous wineries and restaurants, and a stone’s throw from beautiful Muriwai beach. The venue cost starts from just $400.

The Perfect Affordable Ceremony Venue
