    wedding celebrant



    "Justine was nothing but a pleasure to work with! Justine offered us something that other celebrants didn't seem to provide – a youthful touch to the old traditions. She was very resourceful and offered a vast amount of ideas of how a ceremony would suit the couple. What we found best about Justine was that we did not know the specifics of how our ceremony would run, we gave her broken stories and ideas of what we would like and a week later she came to us with a draft of everything we had asked for. She seems to be able to read couples well as she offered us things we didn't even know we had wanted.

    We highly recommend Justine for your services, her friendly professionalism is something everyone should have the chance to include in their marriage ceremony".

    "We could not have asked for a better celebrant to marry us on our big day. Justine was extremely approachable, friendly and professional right from the get go. We planned our NZ wedding all the way from London, and it could not have been easier. We knew from the moment we first met Justine on skype that she was perfect for us. We would highly recommend Justine to any dear friends or family getting married in the future."


    Rachel MacAvoy


    "Adele and I would like to thank you so much for being our celebrant. We knew from our first meeting that you would do an awesome job. You have a wonderfully, bright and bubbly personality which was just what we were looking for. You made our big day run smoothly and really managed to capture who we are as a couple. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a celebrant".


    Brandon Lings


    "We found Justine to be very personable and we really enjoyed her outgoing character and mannerisms. She stood out in her professionalism and ability to communicate effectively to her audiences. We highly recommend Justine as a marriage celebrant due to her optimism and her friendly personality".

    The Meeting

    Firstly we need to establish if I am available on your wedding date.


    Then we can organise to have our initial obligation free meeting.


    This first meeting is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other a little. It is a chance for you to decide if I am the right celebrant for you. It is also a wonderful chance for me to learn more about the two of you as a couple.


    At this meeting I will share with you a comprehensive resource pack. This pack includes how to apply for your Notice of Intended Marriage, marriage license and any other legal documents, example vows and ceremony scripts, readings, poems, tips for wedding planning, and a schedule for the ceremony.


    If you book me you will receive a copy of this resource pack for your own use.
