Choosing the right celebrant to fit both you and your partner is so important. After all, they will be the person telling the story of your love, to all your family and friends. So, I felt it would be best to tell you a little about my life, to see if something strikes a note with you.
I love to travel and meet new people - so much that instead of doing that science degree my parents were expecting; after a year living in Brazil, I came home to study languages and qualified with an Arts Degree in Spanish and Italian from Auckland University. Since then I have travelled extensively through Australia, South Pacific, Asia, Europe and South America; including a short stint living in Australia and later England (the typical kiwi OE) for 4 years. Such experience has given me an insight into the many varied cultures and personalities of people from all over the world, which I believe is a huge help when you are working with couples, each with their own plans and ideas for their wedding day.
After university I pursued a career in Management, working either fashion or lighting design (my family background), and eventually as a Sales and Marketing Manager for a lighting firm in London. These experiences have given me the professional skills of people and time management, public speaking, relationship building and problem solving (essential for all those little details on your wedding day)!
I married my wonderful husband 9 years ago and we now have two gorgeous children, so I can firmly say that I believe in marriage! Since taking leave from my original career, and when I'm not running around after 2 preschoolers, I have had the time to polish my public speaking skills by joining Toastmasters (a public speaking club) and am involved with other voluntary work, including the role of Bookings Manager for The Browns Bay Marine Centre, which is frequently hired for weddings and other significant life events.
These days my life seems to revolve around organising and helping to plan other people's wedding days, something I truly cherish. I have had the honour of fulfilling most roles within a wedding - bride, bridesmaid, matron of honour, flower girl, MC, speaker, guest and now of course celebrant, so I come with a wealth of knowledge on all manner of subjects.
