Mary Newton Celebrant

I am a down-to-earth wedding celebrant based in Onehunga, I specialise in small, intimate weddings and I am available to couples who are looking for a low-key, personable celebrant who offers a zero-stress approach.

Whether you are getting married at home, in the garden, at a park, at the beach, on a hill, in a hall or in a chapel

I offer simple, easy, economical ceremonies for any sized wedding.

I like to have a 'get-to-know-you' meeting first. Following this, I will provide you with a beautiful pre-written wedding ceremony that you can personalise by adding in personal wedding vows and ring exchange wording.

To find out if I am available for your wedding day and a no-obligation quote, please give me a call.


"To start off I would like to say Mary you are a phenomenal Wedding Celebrant. We live in Wellington and travelled to Auckland to celebrate our wedding with our family. My wife and I looked up the internet and found quite a few celebrants that we made contact with but we were either offered a ‘sky rocket’ price or no flexibility. Luckily we found Mary who when we contacted her was so welcoming and willing to help."

"From the start, we experienced great advice, guidance, suggestions and very proactive. Compared to other celebrants Mary was very reasonable and so accommodating. She made sure her first point of contact with us was to know our plans, our expectations and more importantly to get to know us more via a video call which we found to be very genuine. Mary even invited us a day before to witness another wedding she was celebrating and met us for a brief time to discuss our plans. On the day she was there ready and as promised brought some of her own basic set up which you can then add to. She prepares a set of standard vows which you could use or prepare your own vows. Her preparation definitely took off some of the pressure from us."

"She offered us a lot more reasonable price compared to other celebrants we had found. Mary was very patient with us while planning just a few weeks before the booked date. Our schedules were changing frequently due to Covid-isolations at the workplace, but we managed to have a small face-to-face chat at her lovely home, and we were good to go."

"Mary was naturally very friendly, and comfortable to talk to as if we had met before then. We decided to invite her for our reception dinner right away because of this. We were glad she could join us after."

​"Our ceremony was very small, with a few close friends, and relatives. She came in early to set up her own small decorations in the room. We couldn’t set up anything ourselves on the day, so we were happy with the extra touch-ups. I was too nervous by the time of the wedding vows, and could not repeat after Mary smoothly, but she repeated patiently till I got it correct. Everything else was done tension-free thankfully."
