Directory Celebrants in North Shore, Auckland
I craft each ceremony individually for each couple and so the style of the finished ceremony can be contemporary or traditional and may range from the very simple and informal to the classic and formal. Of greatest importance is that this is YOUR Wedding and I will work to ensure you get the Ceremony you want that enhances this very special day for the both of you and for your guests.
The aim is to create something unique and memorable that reflects you as individuals and captures your essence as a couple. I can offer lots of original ideas for you to consider. Some couples have got these details fully sorted, while others initially have no idea what they want. During the development process I am happy to exchange drafts and meet with you as often as needed to ensure we create the Ceremony you want.
From initial meeting, through the planning and preparation stages, to the rehearsal and on your Wedding Day itself my aim is to help ensure everything goes smoothly so that you can b
Totally impressed my third wedding and it was the best by far. Excellent attention to detail everything and more that we wanted. Absolutely speechless. He even enjoyed my piping!!! The honeymead was beautiful. All the little details that made it special were provided unasked for. Amazing gentleman.

We are so happy that we found Chris to be the celebrant for our wedding. Professional, great sense of humor and extremely friendly, not to mention his impeccable fashion sense (of course to the credit of Mrs Mullane).
When we first reached out to Chris initially we indicated a simple straight forward ceremony to go through the formalities was what we were after, Chris helped us plan and prepare all the necessary, and took us through a very thorough rehearsal. This couldn’t have helped more at a time a million other things were on our plate as we scrambled to plan everything else, we knew this part was not going to go wrong. And it went perfectly. Chris even fulfilled the MC role for the ceremony part which we were not expecting but greatly appreciated.
We cannot thank Chris enough, for the personalised ceremony and the unforgettable evening for us and our guests.

Chris was fantastic and really helpful in supporting us to arrange our private ceremony.
We flew over from the UK to marry in NZ. Chris was really helpful in telling us everything we needed to do throughout the process. We had a zoom call to begin, as we were still in the UK. He had great advise about possible locations and met with us once we were in NZ to take us to see them before hand.
He helped us construct a really personalised ceremony that suited us. He is very friendly, chatty and likes a joke and a funny story. We are really glad we chose him for our wedding.

Chris Mullane has married so many of our friends and family that when deciding who we wanted to marry us we knew it had to be him!
He is fantastic - knowledgeable (which considering we knew nothing about planning a ceremony was so needed), helpful, and a fantastic speaker who captures attention and injects laughter easily into his ceremonies.
We could not recommend him more highly!
Thank you so much Chris!!

We thought Chris’s service is very very professional. We really appreciate how Chris made us feel calm and at ease with his warm, friendly manner. We had some WhatsApp meetings during lock-down. Chris is very patient and focus on our details of life. He shared big amounts of materials and suggestions to help us create a formal, interesting, but personalised ceremony. We are lucky to ask Chris to be our MC as well. He even learnt our mother language to bring the audience to the party easily. When some problems happen, Chris can solve in a humorous and fast way! Thank you so much for helping us hold a great marriage party. We love the day! It is perfect!

We cannot thank Chris enough for his immaculate job crafting and presenting our wedding ceremony in December.
From our initial meeting with Chris we knew he was the right man for he job - someone who listened to what we wanted for our day but also gave some excellent suggestions for content, and was trust worthy and reliable - we never had to worry about anything before or on the day. He also delivered some light hearted humour which was enjoyed by all of our guests. We had so many comments from our guests about how meaningful our ceremony was, and we thank Chris so much for his part in that. I have no hesitation recommending Chris, you won’t regret choosing him as your Celebrant.

Myself and my new wife were lucky enough to have Chris as our celebrant for our big day.
Chris was great from the very beginning. Meeting with him, he took the time to talk with us and get to know us and our relationship and he had some great ideas to make things unique and special for us. He had a great-natured way about him that was very nice to be around and we both knew that this was the guy for us.
Chris balances his amazing professionalism very well with the light-hearted nature that we were so drawn to. Prior to the wedding he was great in crafting the ceremony to what we wanted and offering nice insights that his experience had given him. We were clearly in good hands.
On the other side, he was fun and jovial at the wedding, keeping everyone entertained and interested in the proceedings. He was passionate about what he was doing and so many people came up to me and told me how enjoyable he was to listen to. He made us laugh and feel special all at once.
Chris has done an amazing job and we are so glad that we had him with us for our special day. Thank you, Chris, for all you have done for us and for making our wedding a time to remember.

From the moment we met with Chris, we knew he was the person that we wanted to marry us! Chris is very professional and supportive. He guided us through planning and gave us many ideas about our wedding ceremony. On our wedding day, he led the process smooth and entertaining, which made Yifan and I feel so at ease. Our unique love story was also told perfectly by Chris. We also had Chris as our MC at the reception. He was amazing and created a very relaxed and lively atmosphere! We can’t recommend Chris enough!

Chris has been an exceptional person to work alongside. He helped us create the wedding ceremony of our dreams. From the get go Chris has been friendly and fun to work with. Chris pays attention to the finer details and has a wealth of knowledge around ceremony structure. Chris has been so refreshingly calm and reassuring, especially in the midst of changing our plans due to COVID. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking to facilitate a truely memorable ceremony whilst capturing the essence of the couple.
Wedding Date: June 27, 2020
At our initial meeting with Chris, my (now) husband and I had very few ideas about how to even have a wedding ceremony. Chris went through the “typical” process of the wedding ceremony and opened our eyes to a wide range of ideas we could incorporate into our own ceremony.
Most importantly for my husband and I, Chris was warm, friendly and open. He got to know us, our story, our families and our values. He listened to our (few) ideas and gave us examples on how we could build our ceremony to reflect our family values, and what we wanted out of a ceremony.
Chris was patient and helped us develop our ceremony, directed both of our families through a rehearsal, and made our wedding guests feel welcome and a part of our family on our wedding day. We got so many compliments from our family and friends about his celebrant-style - they said he was funny, a great spirit and made our ceremony full of meaning. People raved about how Chris personalized the ceremony with our story (my husband and I) and this was also my favourite part of the ceremony.
Chris also generously MC’d/directed our guests at our reception. He went out of his way and worked with our vendors and our families to make sure everything flowed smoothly and it was with his expertise that our day did flow so well.
If you are after a ceremony full of meaningful symbolism and personal touches tied in with some humour, definitely get in touch with Chris.
We are so happy and proud of our day, it reflected so much of us and our families and it was very much because of Chris’s way with words and his gift of listening.

Chris was the celebrant for our wedding in October and we would recommend him without hesitation.
Chris has a wealth of experience and brought so many ideas to our meetings (which he kindly conducted over Skype as we’re based overseas). We weren’t exactly sure what we wanted at the beginning, but after a comprehensive first meeting with Chris our ideas began to take shape. Chris was completely objective and was happy to go with whatever we decided.
We were so happy with how the ceremony turned out. Chris has a commanding presence (which is good for the operational side of the ceremony), but he has a very warm, friendly personality with a great sense of humour. So many of our guests remarked on what a fantastic job he did. My husband and I felt that Chris had everything organised and under control so we didn’t have worry about the running of the ceremony, we could just focus on getting married! He also has great attention to detail, making sure he was dressed in complimentary colours, arranging our wedding certificate to be printed on ivory craft paper with a nice bow, and he printed our vows/intentions to accompany the certificate which is so lovely to have as a memento.
Thank you so much, Chris, you were the perfect celebrant!

Chris hardly needs any more reviews looking at his profile on here as it says it all really, however I echo all the comments on this page about Chris as a celebrant and MC. He does this job entirely for the love of it and that shows through from the moment you meet him. We contacted Chris after a family friend said we must use his services - there is nobody better in this industry and it was the best decision I made. So many people said to us they thought Chris was a relative or friend of ours as it seemed he knew us so well - and he did give us many hours over the year in the lead up to get to know us and it really showed. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for what was a class act from start to finish. Ben and Jess Tiley.

If there were more than 5 stars available, i would be using them because Chris was OUTSTANDING.
preparations and communication prior to the wedding were detailed and prepared. It’s tricky to know what you need in a celebrant unless you have been to a lot of weddings before, Chris came with all the knowledge and the options to help us create a ceremony that was truly “us”.
During the ceremony there were points I thought my now-husband had given him quotes to say, they were so perfect! but no it was all Chris. He kept our crowd of around 100 engaged the entire ceremony, broke the ice with humor when it was appropriate, and delivered an emotional and heartfelt message at just the right times.
So many comments from friends and family about his delivery, so impressed and would recommend to anyone.
Wedding Date: July 20, 2019
We saw Chris in action at a wedding my husband (hehe) was a groomsman for and we knew he’d be the one for us when the time came.
He’s very organized and his attention to detail and the portrayal and delivery of our personal information and love story really made the event personal. He has extensive wardrobe, wares and ideas to suit any theme or genre celebration and lots of patience and time for everyone needing to be involved.
Humor is big on the list, and he is very good with people - my lot are hard to herd so we were very impressed.
Nothing but positive comments came from our guests and I will reccomend Chris to anyone searching for a great celebrant and mc.

Chris Mullane was an absolutely exceptional celebrant. In the lead up to the wedding he spent hours on skype with us crafting the perfect ceremony. I loved the way he incorporated personal stories, humour and fun into our ceremony. Chris had brilliant ideas for making the ceremony unique and the guests loved all of the extra touches.
After the wedding we had countless people saying that was the best ceremony they had been too. Thanks for making the day run smoothly Chris, we felt relaxed and at ease because of all your hard work.

I first learnt about Chris from one of my best friends weddings recently in September. I was blown away by his manner, enthusiasm, professionalism and just how unique the ceremony was. I made a mental note then that Chris would be the celebrant to recommend to my friends and family. Chris was absolutely incredible at my brothers wedding, he and his wife were so pleased to have engaged his services. I’d particularly like to highlight that Chris was excellent with language and cultural barriers, he was particularly sensitive and went above and beyond to ensure the bride and groom felt comfortable on their big day. Chris’ approach to ceremonies is unique and totally individual, with a wealth of information and suggestions supplied for the bride and groom to then select. This made the process particularly smooth and enjoyable for those who perhaps didn’t quite ‘know’ what was entailed or what their style was. On behalf of the bride and groom, we can’t quite thank you enough! Thank you, Chris!!

Chris is seriously the best celebrant ever and everyone at our wedding says so! I had first seen him in action at a friend’s wedding and from that moment, I knew he would be the celebrant to marry me and my future husband. We also hired him to be the MC at our wedding - one of the best decisions we have made for our wedding.
Everyone at our wedding could not stop raving about him and kept asking us where we found him. They all thought he was a close family friend because he was so personable. Those who know of other friends getting married wanted his details so they can recommend him to them.
Chris is highly professional and experienced, very thorough and detailed and he is knowledgeable in different traditions and customs from different countries, etc. He has plenty of ideas and prepares every detail you can imagine right down to a tee, so you will never need to worry about what to do on your big day.
His service is top-notched and has such an amazing sense of humour. He created a very relaxed and joyful atmosphere - not a single awkward, crickets-chirping moment. The entire day and evening flowed perfectly and within schedule - much to everyone’s delight.
My husband and I highly recommends him - you will not be disappointed and it will be one of the best decisions you make for your wedding!

Chris was absolutely amazing! He was celebrant and mc at our wedding and made the day !
It was fun…he captured who we are perfectly and kept our guests entertained throughout the evening
Highly highly recommend
Wedding Date: September 23, 2018
Our wedding was perfect! Guests commented on how easily they enjoyed themselves and how relaxed the groom and I were. We had a delightful time planning our wedding, and it is due to trusting the experts who were part of our day - Chris is one of them.
Chris was our celebrant and MC. Our ceremony was put together from a range of suggestions Chris provided, tied in with a few of our own ideas. As MC Chris kept everything running smoothly, not a thing went wrong, and everyone was entertained the whole time. Before the end of the night at least two people wanted to book him for their weddings and they don’t even have a date yet!
If you choose Chris as your celebrant and MC you can be confident that all will go well and you will have a ceremony crafted to perfectly express your love and commitment to each other.

Within a few minutes of meeting Chris, we felt at ease. A great weight had been lifted off our shoulders, for we knew we had found someone that would make our day memorable. Thank you Chris for making our wedding day intimate and special. Every moment of the day was a delightful balance between humor, romance and a touch of tears. You captured our journey together and made it a beautiful masterpiece. It was amazing how you included our guests and made them feel part of our memorable day. Chris, you are an outstanding celebrant. Thank you! Caryn and Christoff
