Alexa was absolutely amazing, she was professional and warm, her calming personality transfered to us on our wedding day putting us at ease and able to truly enjoy the moment. I have no hesitation in recommending the wonderful Alexa, she truly is a gem!

We loved Alexa as our celebrant. She was wonderful to deal with. After our initial meeting with her she had obviously sussed us out pretty well. The words she put together for our ceremony were perfect. We didn’t need to change anything. She was definitely professional and friendly.
Thank you Alexa, for being part of our special day.

We chanced upon Alexa’s name from browsing online. An emotional connection was established straight away on our first meeting, which cemented our decision to ask her to be our wedding celebrant.
Our decision was based on the fact that Alexa is an experienced and knowledgeable celebrant. On our first meeting she guided us on the vows we will be making, the music we want, the different parts of the ceremony and what should be done, the people we wish to participate, the wedding march, how we are going to stand before our audience/wedding guests, and even where and how best to arrange the seats for the ceremony. She did everything with a personal and motherly touch. Alexa is very professional, always making sure she communicated everything we needed to know and do through an email, she was very punctual both for the rehearsal and ceremony, has excellent communications skill and good sense of humor, very sociable, eloquent, honest and very good people skills. She is simply awesome and we would like to thank her for making our wedding ceremony very special.

Alexa helped to make our wedding day not only easy and smooth, but personal and loving. She took care of all the small details, leaving us to just enjoy the day. Thank you very much for a beautiful ceremony and all of your support. Lots of love, Matt and Emily.

Alexa recently was the celebrant for my sons wedding, she was totally professional throughout, designing a personal, meaningful and beautiful ceremony.
Alexa is a friendly, professional and accommodating celebrant with a great sense of humour. She mixes well with the guests while ensuring the ceremony is well organized and well planned.
Alexa also has excellent communication skills which ensured that this special day was everything that my son and my lovely new daughter in law had wished for.
Wedding Date: March 8, 2014
Alexa was a fabulous celebrant - in fact “bloody awesome” according to hubby! Fun, relaxed, informative and helpful. If we ever renew our vows she’ll be the one we call. The vows & whole service was short but beautiful and included everything we had discussed as being important to us.
Wedding Date: March 1, 2014
Alexa made a special day even more special. Her recommended form of service was quite lovely - we didn’t alter one word. She made all the words of the ceremony come alive for us and the assembled guests.
Alexa, thank you so much

I and my partner who is my husband now have been in relation for 8 years and living together, also have a 5 year old. We both have been previously married with bad experiences and meeting Alexa made us feel relaxed and comfortable opening ourselves to her while giving her information about ourselves for our vows which she prepared for our wedding, only for us ……the vows, her speech delivery, knowing what we wanted, how we wanted, willingness to care and to know about you, your family & culture……Alexa is the one to go for…..A very Big Thank you for what you have done for us…….Bob and Anu
Wedding Date: October 26, 2013
Im a professional wedding photographer and Alexa was marrying a beautiful couple on October 26, 2013. Alexa was very professional, and we felt like she was a part of a family. She new exactly what to say, how to help and what photographer needs! I’ve been photographing weddings for 8 years now, and she payed attention to my needs as much as to bride and groom’s (which was great for the whole ceremony). She just knows how to make everyone’s stress fly away!
Hope to work with her again!

We recently came to NZ in order to marry as a same sex couple. We were staying at a B & B where we were to have our ceremony. The hosts of this B&B recommended Alexa. We found her to be most accomodating to our request for a small and relaxed ceremony. As an older couple we found that she was willing to integrate our own ideas of how we could proceed with this without compromising the legal requirements of obtaining a marriage licence in NZ.
Her advice regarding the getting of the licence was timely and useful.
She was professional at all times, providing a warm environment for our special day.
We were grateful for her expertise and assistance and thank her very much.
Wedding Date: September 5, 2013
Very relaxed, down to earth and non-intrusive. Alexa was open to suggestions and advised where necessary. Thank you for making our day even more special. Highly recommend
Wedding Date: January 26, 2013
Alexa was just wonderful, she gave use great suggestions and guidance to ensure our ceremony was just perfect. The rehersal was very valuable and Alexa made that everyone in our bridal party and others involved in the ceremony knew what to do. Alexa wrote a beautiful ceremony that we just loved. She is a true professional!
Wedding Date: February 9, 2013
I would highly recommend Alexa Bartlett who was the celebrant at my friend’s wedding.
Her presentation was professional and authentic.
She has a good sense of humour and a calm and composed manner. It was obvious that Alexa has had much experience in designing and delivering ceremonies as her presentation was faultless.
Many of the guests also commented on the friendly, professional and well organised celebrant with excellent communication skills.
Alexa I will thoroughly recommend you as a Celebrant as the ceremony that you provided was a delightful change from many other weddings that I have been to.
Your quality services are VERY IMPRESSIVE. !!
It was a GREAT DAY..Keep up the good work.
Kind regards, Gillian.
Wedding Date: July 7, 2012
We cannot recommend Alexa Bartletts’ services highly enough. From our first meeting we knew we were in excellent hands as Alexa guided and supported us in our wedding preparations. Our wedding ceremony was orchestrated beautifully and even when we had a slight technical hitch with equipment Alexa’s professionalism and calm saved the day. Your wedding day is such a significant event you need to have a celebrant whom you can trust, confide in and in whose ability you have the utmost confidence…Alexa is exactly who you need. Thank you for your wonderful work Alexa - we couldn’t have dreamed of a better celebrant!!!
Wedding Date: January 12, 2008
We are from Australia and decided that we would get married while on Holidays in New Zealand. We found Alexa through our friends in Auckland. Alexa was so helpful with everything as we needed to organise the ceremony over email because we were not due to land in NZ until 2 days before the wedding.
Alexa did the most beautiful ceremony and we are so happy that she was a part of our very special day. We watched the DVD of the wedding again last night and it had us both in tears again (happy tears!).
Alexa has our thumbs up as a great celebrant and we would definitely recommend her to anyone else.
Wedding Date: October 2, 2011
Alexa was the first celebrant we spoke with and we new straight away there was new point contacting anyone further. Alexa’s personality and warmth contributed to us knowing we have found our celebrant. Her planning and ideas for the service were outstanding and she made the whole process of putting together a wedding a breeze. Our day went off without a hitch and Alexa contributed to everything being perfect. My new husband and I would highly recommend Alexa Bartlett to anyone looking for a celebrant
Wedding Date: September 17, 2011
Alexa, what an amazing lady. She was just amazing to work with for my sisters naming day and our wedding day. A warm hearted proffesional lady, passionate about what she does. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!
Wedding Date: February 10, 2011
This was the second wedding that Alexa has celebrated at my wedding venue. The first was a small intimate wedding of 6 and the latest a larger wedding of 60 guests.
Each time Alexa has made her bridal party and guests feel very welcome at at ease. Both services were very moving and pertinent to the individual couples.
I would not hesitate to recommend Alexa to any future couples who choose to get married at Willows Reach.
Wedding Date: February 18, 2011
I recently attended a wedding inwhich Alexa was the celebrant. By paying attention to small details, such as where the guests were standing, and by organising everyone so well before the bride arrived, she ensured the ceremony maintained its’ intimacy. The ceremony was beautiful, delivered in a manner that was not only articulate and professional, but also very personal and warm. I’m going to keep her in mind, in case I ever decide to get married one day!
Wedding Date: February 11, 2011
Alexa was patient and most helpful when it came to writing our own vows. She had plenty of ideas and suggestions and she delivered our ceremony wonderfully on our wedding day.
Wedding Date: February 19, 2011
Alexa was very kind, patient and thoughtful throughout the entire process - even to go so far as asking the colour of the bridesmaids’ and Mother of the bride’s dresses so as not to clash!
Importantly for us she was very calming and relaxed yet confident during the rehearsal which greatly eased our nerves for the wedding the following day.
Lastly she was supportive of us writing our own vows and worked with us to make sure they were just right.
I would gladly recommend Alexa to anyone as a celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 11, 2011
Alexa was a godsend. She was able to put together a wonderful ceremony for an unusual group at an unusual location at short notice. She communicated well with us and was flexible to meet our needs. Her input made a significant contribution to making our day very special. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
Wedding Date: 20 March 2010
Alexa was an amazing celebrant, she couldn’t have made our ceremony anymore special and relaxed. I would recommend Alexa to anyone who is wanting a celebrant who will really personalise their ceremony and make their day that little bit more special. Due to her years of experience Alexa can also offer great advice if you are like us and had no idea what you are meant to be doing!
Wedding Date: April 1, 2010
When it came to choosing a celebrant I thought of Alexa immediately as she had handled a few family events in the past with great care and compassion. She guided us to ensure we had covered all the areas we needed for the ceremony as well as legally. I really found having a rehearsal valuable, it prepared us mentally and it was good to think about little hiccups that could occur. She helped to alleviate our stress levels too. It goes without saying she is highly recommended.
Wedding Date: February 19, 2010
Alexa married us on Feb 20 2010. She was amazing, not only on the day but also the many days leading up to our big day. Everything was so well organised. She helped incorporate everything we wanted as well as guiding us with all the many details associated with a wedding. Alexa has a lovely kind and caring manner and is also very patient. She was wonderful at the rehersal and was also able to expertly manage my six bridesmaids! She was also really good at calming my nerves. I loved our ceremony, it was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend Alexa.
