I bring my warmth, sense of humour, love of people, experience and general happiness about life to you as I walk beside you supporting and giving you guidance and confidence to create your dream ceremony.
Once you first contact me I offer you a Skype session to meet me and I explain everything you need to know. I have a Wedding Resource Kit full of all the inspiring readings, rituals and ideas you will need in your ceremony as well as a document on how to write your vows with some examples for you and the process to order your marriage licence.
We will spend time preparing your ceremony so that it is unique to you both as well as organising sound, music, and anything cultural you'd like to include. The greatest compliment I can receive is when one of your friends ask me if I had known you before because the ceremony so reflects who you are!
We will have a rehearsal the day before to walk through the ceremony, ....but not read it, we'll keep that a surprise for your Big Day :)
On your wedding day day, I arrive an hour earlier so I am calm and have plenty of time to handle any last-minute issues :) You have unlimited contact with me to ask me any questions - my goal is for you to make your dream day come true :) For elopements, I can offer my beautiful BnB with unlimited mountain views and provide witnesses and all you need for your ceremony.
I am a Registered Marriage celebrant and Validated member of CANZ - Celebrants Association of NZ. I am also a Counsellor, Retreat facilitator and author of 4 books.
"There aren’t enough words to explain how amazing Liz was. Even though we arranged our wedding from overseas, Liz was only ever an email or a FaceTime away. She put us at complete ease and together, we created a ceremony that was not only beautiful, but it was also tailored perfectly to us. When we finally got to meet in person, it was like greeting an old friend. It was as if we had known each other for years! She welcomed us into her home, making everything so easy for us. Her professional, yet organic approach to the wedding was simply wonderful. It allowed both of us room to be in the moment and ‘feel’ all our emotions, while at the same time having an embracing structure that guided us through our ceremony. People talk of the perfect wedding, and it feels almost cliched to say: but ours truly was. Liz, when we look back on this day, we will remember the huge part that you played in making it such a wonderful occasion. We are so blessed that we found you and so proud to call you our celebrant." - Abbie & James, Jan 2020
"From the very first Skype meeting with Liz, she blew us away with how organised she was. We have nothing but positive feedback for the service she provides and we highly recommend her as a celebrant. Liz responded quickly to any questions we had and provided us with helpful material for writing our ceremony and vows. Liz ran the rehearsal of the ceremony like clockwork, which was a difficult job, given our large bridal party. On the day Liz put us at ease and did a fabulous job, going above and beyond to help out when the weather wasn’t playing ball. The ceremony Liz wrote was perfect for us and she was beautifully presented. We can’t recommend her enough!!!" - Kate & Kieran, Feb 2020
"It was an honour to have Liz as our wedding celebrant. We simply could not have asked for a better and more personable celebrant. She was an integral part of our day. She went out of her way to make the ceremony all about us. She got along with family and friends and was extremely professional. Even though we live in a different country, she worked closely with us to ensure our ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be. Liz is super responsive and lovely to work with. She has such a warm personality and we are lucky to have met her. Thank you for making our wedding day so special Liz. Would highly recommend her." - Tim and Shiva, Feb 2020
"We felt so fortunate to have Liz, who made our intimate ceremony so personal and memorable. We and our guests were so impressed by Liz’s calming nature and genuine excitement for us. Her organisational skills also saved the day when the mother of the bride misplaced the readings. Thank you, Liz, we are so grateful we found you!" - Annie and Gavin Feb 2020
"Hello Liz, Thank you for doing such a magnificent job as our celebrant. Everyone we spoke to said you delivered a perfect ceremony and kept the timing spot on We really appreciated you having the tissues ready to go, and guiding us through the ceremony. It couldn’t have gone better :) You were a rock for Andrew and he loved how well you looked after him. He felt very supported by you even though he was incredibly anxious. You are amazing and there is nothing better you could have done." - Nat & Andrew, January 2019
"Liz is not only an exceptional celebrant but also kind, warm and lovely to engage with. From the very beginning, Liz helped us navigate our planned ceremony with ease and it made for a flawless and beautiful day. Thank you so much, Liz, for your guidance, support and being so accommodating with us during our stay at your gorgeous B&B. Everything was perfect!" - Grace and Adam, December 2018
