Whether you want a small intimate wedding or something very grand and opulent I can assist you in creating the ceremony you want.
I work mainly in Queenstown, Arrowtown, Wanaka and the surrounding area but I am available to travel to other locations by arrangement.
I can also undertake weddings in the Auckland region, inimitable weddings on the black sands of the West Coast, or on the unique Waiheke Island.
Why have your wedding in the Queenstown Lakes region?
Queenstown, Wanaka and Central Otago are fantastic places to have your wedding, beautiful and quite different in every season.
All around this Central Lakes District of New Zealand the scenery is amazing and world famous. There are beautiful lakeside and mountain settings, wild secluded spots and dramatic clifftops. READ MORE »
If simplicity and tradition are at the heart of your wedding plans then I will work with you to create a ceremony that uniquely reflects you as a couple, as you make a public declaration of commitment in front of family and friends.
An attractive choice if you want a very personal, intimate wedding in a location you have always dreamed of.
These can be very special ceremonies that create amazing memories for both you and the special few you have chosen to share your day with.
I am very open minded so I can help you celebrate whatever type of ceremony you desire.
If you want to get married on top of a mountain, bungying from a bridge, out on the lake or even underwater, all dressed up or wearing next to nothing. If you can think of it, I can be there to officiate. Queenstown is a mecca for adrenaline addicts, there are so many options – the world is your oyster (as the saying goes).
Weddings on the Snow
You can get helicoptered up to stunning isolated locations with breath taking vistas, with just the Kea (native New Zealand parrot) for company. Landing on a glacier or snowy mountain top in your wedding outfits will create memories and photographs to treasure forever.
Your wedding day isn’t the only opportunity to profess your love and commitment to one another. You love each other day in and day out and some couples choose to formalize that daily commitment with one ― or several ― vow renewal ceremonies. This might be on a fifth, tenth, twenty fifth or fiftieth anniversary, there really are no rules as to when you chose to celebrate the life you have built together.
You may want to recommit to each other after a difficult period in your relationship, stress, infidelity or ill health. It’s a chance to demonstrate that your love has survived, that you wish to make a new start and reaffirm the love you share.
Maybe you had a small private wedding first time around, something that was just shared between the two of you and now you want a celebration bringing friends and family together as you demonstrate that you would do it all over again in an instant.
These really are very special ceremonies that you can tailor to be exactly what you wish.
As there are no legal requirements relating to vow renewals they can be arranged as a surprise for your partner, friends or for parents who are approaching a significant anniversary.
They are such fun to arrange and are days filled with emotion; a time for reminiscence and to reinforce bonds.
Celebration of Life
I can also assist with Celebration of Life, and special ceremonies to mark other life milestones.
A naming ceremony is a popular way to welcome a new child into the family and a wonderful chance to bring everyone together.
Same Sex Marriage & Civil Union
Whatever you choose, I am here to help you through the planning and legal necessities of a wedding or celebration in the Queenstown, Wanaka and Central Otago area. I love working with couples and families as they celebrate milestone moments together.
