I look forward to being involved in your special day. As your celebrant I will work with you and offer guidance and support to create the ceremony you want. My commitment to you is to ensure your ceremony is both meaningful and personal and that it honours and celebrates your love, who you are and what you want.

My warm and friendly approach will help you relax and enjoy the unique experience of making the commitment of two people to one another.

As well as having a Certificate in Celebrant Studies, my nursing, counselling and life experiences have provided me with communication and people skills that support my role as marriage and civil union celebrant. I am also a member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand and I will be sensitive to your wishes, needs, values, cultural and spiritual beliefs.

“Thank you so much for everything you have done for both of us. We loved the ceremony and you made it so easy and relaxing for us. We had such an amazing day with friends and family, everything was perfect!”

Joanne Parker (Bride)

“We had a really relaxed informal wedding - Marilyn excelled at going “with the flow” - but gently ensuring things actually flowed. The comments and feedback we had from guests was testament to the wonderful role she performed on our special day. I highly recommend Marilyn to anyone wanting not only a personal touch to your day but one that is ‘real’. Thank you Marilyn.”
