We are so lucky in NZ to have COVID-19 under control. However, we need to still maintain our vigilance. I am set up with a QR Code, so when you visit me please scan the code.

Congratulations to Roger and Faasalafa who were married on a beautiful spring day at the Rose Garden at Caroline Bay.

I'm feeling very grateful today.

Two day's ago I had the privilege of conducting a memorial service and unveiling of a plaque for Stacey who died suddenly in an accident one year ago. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and it was a lovely, if not sad, time for everyone. I have just rece...

Dave was amazing and friendly. He anticipated questions and set our fears to rest. Would definitely recommend Dave to be anyone's celebrant!!!

Dave was an absolute joy to work with! He is very knowledgeable, personable and a genuinely kind person. My husband and I are from the U.S. and we decided to elope in New Zealand. He offered every bit of information we needed to know, and even found us an incredible place to wed!! I would highly recommend Dave’s services. We even got the chance to meet his wife and son who were just as lovely. It all really added to an absolutely incredible experience. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding day. We look back on the day VERY fondly, and Dave is a big part of making all of that possible. (Photography by Tessa Tadlock)

Dave really went above and beyond and his wife was so welcoming and lovely it felt like we may have been extended family when we meet with them. His family has obviously supported him greatly to help him become such a wonderful celebrant. He kept in constant communication without being to much. My Husband and I are very different people, he want a low key funny styled ceremony. Whereas I saw the the traditional happy style. He found a way to bring us both together and we really couldn't have had a more perfect ceremony. If you are considering Dave I suggest you get in touch A.S.A.P you wont regret it for a second.
