Marry Me, Glennys!

It is a delightful – and all too rare a thing – to be able to bring together all the people you love most. It doesn’t have to be fancy – but it should be meaningful. It should be fun, fantastic, fabulous – and memorable.

The best weddings and ceremonies, of all kinds – are personal. They are engaging and entertaining as well as romantic and meaningful – to all. They are inclusive, one-of-a-kind bespoke moments. They are never
boring, stiff or dull.

You don’t know where to start? That’s easy! I will guide you every single step of the way…

I will write you something amazing – and deliver it like it’s the only wedding I will ever do, which in a way, it is (for you). If this sounds like you – then get in contact with me!

Overseas Couples – Let’s elope!

Just because you aren’t in Queenstown or Wanaka or Central Otago for all the preparations, doesn’t mean that your wedding can’t be fabulous!

Eloping here is easy – and I can make your ceremony amazing, beautiful, wonderful, and romantic…..
The world is much smaller than it used to be. There’s nothing we can’t do using email or skype.
Almost everything is the same!
BUT you will need to fill in a form, called the Notice of Intent to Marry (for overseas couples) – and send it to the Queenstown District Court at least 3 days prior to the ceremony.

Everything else can be done when you get here. It’s really, really easy. Even if it’s only a small wedding, it’s still your wedding, so we need to make sure it is absolutely right for you. Some of the most memorable
ceremonies I have ever done have been under ten people.

I can point you in the direction of all sorts of suppliers and specialist wedding planners who can also help you!

Go on – let’s elope!

Same Sex Wedding Celebrant

Same Sex Marriages I have always been a strong believer in equality for EVERYONE and so it goes without saying I have been a supporter for marriage equality for same sex couples for a long time!

Love is love is love. Whether a man loves a woman, a woman loves a woman, or a man loves a man, it really makes no difference – true love will always prevail!

I have had the absolute privilege of marrying many same sex couples and I look forward to getting you married too!

Love is a force more formidable than any other.

It is invisible — it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.  — Barbara de Angelis

Baby Naming Celebrant

This is a beautiful way to officially welcome your child into your family and to honour the name you have given them.  These often take place in the home surrounded by those who are important to you and your child.  There are no set rules for a naming ceremony and we will work together to tailor something completely unique and  meaningful to your family!

Renewal of Vow Celebrations

Recapture the magic of your wedding day and celebrate a marriage that has strengthened and grown over the years!

I can help you to create a perfect vow renewal ceremony. You might like to reflect on the highlights of your marriage, tell your partner how much you love them and make renewed promises for the future!

Renewal of Vows can be a small private affair or involve your wider family and friends.
