What an amazing person (what a cracker wedding ceremony as my husband says )! Philippa was the best celebrant we could wish for. Lovely, easygoing, very friendly, full of fun and professional at the same time.
We had to change our wedding date because of bad weather and she was very understanding and flexible with our alternative date and time.
She made us feel very relaxed during our ceremony, happy and we had lots of laughter. Small touches from her side made our day perfect and we cannot thank her enough.

We organised our wedding only a few months out from the date. It was hard to find someone who had a laid back easy going attitude about the whole thing. Philippa was excellent in helping give us what we wanted for our wedding day. She was so easy to work with and seemed to understand straight away that having a celebrant who delivered a ceremony that reflected us was way more important than the colour of any dresses or flowers. I would recommend Philippa to anyone who wants to get married. She takes the time to understand you and is never pushy. All our guests raved about how good the ceremony was because of Philippa. Thank you so much for everything Philippa!

We found Philipa for our elopement in Queenstown. We traveled from US to get married and it was daunting to look for someone online. From the first email we received, it was clear she was perfect for our wedding. Philipa is very wonderful at her job and you can tell she loves what she does. She wrote a beautiful ceremony that was tailored to our story as a couple. So many of our friends and family complimented her beautiful ceremony. Words cannot express how grateful we are that we found her to be part of our special day! I would highly recommend her.

I give Philippa my highest recommendation! We had the best day and I’m certain that she made it better. Philippa had really great advice, she was super easy to work with and she anticipated our needs.
From the very first communication, Philippa was efficient, personal and professional. She got in touch with me at key points in the process to ensure everything was arranged in time and stress-free. This was incredible considering the amount of vendors, plans and times I was keeping track of. I knew she had it under control.
I could tell that Philippa has been part of many weddings which made things so seamless yet we also felt like she was excited for us as if we were her first wedding. Her young, fresh approach made our day really fun and she looked great in the pictures
Philippa is just fabulous!

We had the fantastic pleasure of being married by Philippa in Wellington when she was still there. The flexibility of allowing us to write our ceremony and being full of joy and love on our special day was amazing. I couldn’t recommend her enough for your ceremony.

Awesome celebrant. Very friendly and always professional. Had many great ideas on ways to make our ceremony personal and to make our wedding special. Has a huge collection of possible readings, poems and different ceremony structures. Would definitely recommend.

Philippa was an amazing celebrant. We had a new born baby and was very flexible when it came to our meetings, and planning our ceremony, esp with all my babybrain decision changing.
On the day, she was wonderful, kept in touch right up to my arrival, and overall, was amazing.
Im very pleased I chose her, I couldn’t imagine having anyone else marry my husband and I.

So glad we picked Philippa for our renewals! She is a genuinely lovely person, and she really took the time to make sure our day went the way we wanted it to. Her support and advice leading up to the day was invaluable. She added lots of little touches to the ceremony to make it truly ours, it was absolutely perfect and i cannot thank her enough.
