Unique ceremonies, created from scratch

WELCOME

So Much to Think About. So Little Time.That’s Where I come In!

Welcome and congratulations on your engagement! I offer a bespoke Wanaka celebrant service – dedicated to uniquely crafting your special day.

If you’re looking for a beautiful, meaningful ceremony that truly encapsulates YOU then you’re in the right place. I am committed to creating a day that exceeds expectations, weaving your story of love and commitment through a personal dialogue written from scratch.

Whatever your dreams, however you see your ‘big day’ panning out, I’m here to support your dreams, beliefs and values, ensuring everything is exactly as you wish!

Be it a large event, or a more intimate gathering, relax in the knowledge that I’ll take care of the fine print – all you have to do is show up!

ABOUT ME

Hi I’m Helen

A Celebrant, passionate green-thumb, foodie and all round lover-of-wine. I’m also a mother to four daughters – my favourite accomplishment to date. I love to not only connect with people, but help people connect! A desire that ultimately sparked my decision to get into this industry. Well, that and who doesn’t love a good wedding?

I am privileged to call Wanaka home and my days are spent in my garden, at the lake (or on the lake, as i’m an avid paddle boarder) and walking my furry friend Dougal the dog.

I love to be a part of love – so me, your special day and Wanaka’s beautiful surroundings are a match made in wedding heaven!

HOW IT WORKS

Working with you, making your dreams happen

I know how important it is to choose the right person for your special day! So our first meeting will be more of an informal chat – where we get to know each other a little before proceeding. No problems if you’re not in town – we can speak on skype.

If we ‘gel’ and you make the decision I’m the one for you, we’ll sit down and go over what makes you tick as a couple, then discuss how you want your ceremony to look. There are no restrictions and everything we do or do not include will be dictated by you!  You may also wish to incorporate other small aspects such as readings, songs, or acknowledgements by parents and children. This day is about YOU, i’m just the messenger.

I’ll gently guide you through all aspects of the ceremony, including the writing of your vows. Together we’ll create a unique plan to reflect the both of you, and after we finesse our ideas I’ll send you a draft to look over. We’ll then have a rehearsal to iron out any wrinkles – and from here on out all you need to worry about is GETTING MARRIED!
