If you’re looking for a celebrant that is fun, outgoing and organised
We can definitely recommend Sarah, she is brilliant.
Sue & I planned a small elopement wedding on the beach at Waiheke and wanted it to be relaxed, fun and intimate affair.
To start, we researched celebrants online and cut to a shortlist of 3.
We met Sarah first and loved her enthusiasm, vibrant personality, tips and processes.
As soon as we left the meeting, we decided Sarah was perfect for the role and cancelled our other meetings.
Sarah’s info documents made writing our vows and personal words easy and her “wedding day run sheet” gave us the knowledge and confidence of how the day would run and that she was on top of things.
Nothing was a problem for Sarah
We had 2 minor “hick ups” prior to the ceremony & both unrelated to Sarah’s role.
We couldn’t fit all our baggage into the seaplane and the plane was running an hour late. lol.
Sarah readily helped out and took the overload luggage with her on the ferry,
and she picked up our rental car and drove it to the wedding spot.
Our wedding day was everything we’d hoped for…. relaxed, fun, intimate & loving.
Sarah ran the day beautifully and added extra little touches to the ceremony while her personality kept us all relaxed and laughing, all whilst remaining professional and polished.
We trusted our instincts Sarah was right for us and she was everything we hoped for.
To Sarah, thanks so much for being a part of our wedding…… you were a star!!
Wedding Date: October 25, 2018
We got married on 27th September 2018, Sarah was our celebrant. From the beginning she was so friendly and helpful. We met Sarah at one of the many Wedding expos we attended, she gave us a quick run down of how her services worked, she was friendly and answered all our questions. We later emailed to book a meeting with her, at the meeting she was very helpful, made us feel comfortable and came up with some amazing ideas for our ceremony. We were getting married on our 10 year anniversary and wanted to make the whole day special, Sarah suggested having a Time Capsule to open on our One year wedding anniversary, our siblings doing readings, our parents doing a reflection of marriage (as both sets of parents are still married) and the mum’s being witnesses. At the rehearsal Sarah went over everything the bridal party and father of the bride needed to know, and one the wedding day, she was always there to help. Sarah came to meet me at the car before I got into the hall and calmed my nerves. The ceremony went off without a hitch all thanks to Sarah. I love how Sarah moves out the way of the first kiss - she thinks of everything! and even takes our first (married couple) selfie with her We knew we had to have Sarah as our celebrant because we are both so shy and nervous, but Sarah was so friendly, bubbly and calming. Thanks so much for the perfect ceremony!
Wedding Date: September 27, 2018
Sarah was our celebrant on 27/09/2018. She was great in making sure we had everything we needed and giving us ideas for our ceremony. Would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: September 27, 2018
Sarah was a brilliant celebrant and had everything running so smoothly from start to finish.
Our wedding was all about being relaxed and fun, and after our initial meeting which was extremely thorough, we knew immediately that Sarah was the right fit for us.
She gave us loads of options and great guidance on how the ceremony could go while still ensuring it fit in with who we are, and we were so happy with everything on the day.
Although it was super relaxed, Sarah maintained very high professionalism at all times.
I absolutely love the selfie bit at the end, really unique a fun way to end the ceremony.
We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend Sarah as a celebrant.
Thanks for making our day so special!
Kelli & Pete
Wedding Date: March 29, 2018
We found Sarah on facebook to renew our vows and we were so happy to find her, She was very understanding and helped us choose the perfect ceremony for us. We highly recommend her, she’s full of joy and it is really contagious we’ll never forget our lovely wedding ceremony at Browns Bay. Thanks so much, Sarah!
Wedding Date: February 24, 2018
Sarah is the ultimate professional who I would highly recommend for your wedding celebrant. We really felt at ease from our first consultation with Sarah who was presenting various ideas and options for consideration to make our ceremony unique to our liking. The main attributes which sets Sarah apart from other celebrants is her experience and the ability to communicate to people at all levels and it a huge point of difference. All aspects of our dealings with Sarah from the initial consultation, email contact, rehearsal and wedding ceremony were well organized and exceeded our expectations. We were lucky to have had a great celebrant of Sarah’s caliber on our special day. Terrena & Jonathan
Wedding Date: March 17, 2018
Well what can I say, from the moment my now wife and I met with Sarah for the first time. We knew instantly that we had made the right choice in celebrant. Sarah was friendly and professional and welcomed us into her home like we were family. Our day was magical and Sarah’s guidance and officiating on the day were fantastic. We are truly blessed to have had the pleasure of Sarah as our celebrant and wouldn’t heaitate in recommending her to anyone else.
Thank you Sarah for making our magical day so much easier and more memorable.
Wedding Date: February 24, 2018
Where do we start with Sarah! We absolutely LOVED her from the moment we first made contact! We were searching for someone professional, someone with a hilarious sense of humor and someone could WOW a crowd! This was Sarah to a T! She is one of the most hard working wedding vendors we know and she has so much love and passion in what she does! She knows how to organise an Army and she just gets things done perfectly without a fuss and not an ounce of stress! Thank you Sarah, from the bottom of our hearts - for being there on our special day! We absolutely adore you and we couldn’t have wished for a more suitable celebrant! Thank you for going out of your way, with all your funky ideas and suggestions! Our ceremony was PERFECT thanks to you! xx
Wedding Date: February 10, 2018
The first meeting we had with Sarah my husband and I felt like we had known Sarah forever. She made us feel like part of her family and we felt so comfortable. Sarah is very organised and very professional. Her guidance and support was amazing. Thank you Sarah. We wish you all the best.
Wedding Date: January 19, 2018
Sarah is like my angel sent from heaven to keep my wedding on track haha She is awesome and I am so glad we chose her to be our celebrant.

Thank you Sarah for being our celebrant and our friend. wish you the best in all your endeavors and keep that positive attitude you bring everywhere. we love you and you rock!! :D
Wedding Date: January 7, 2018
I can’t put in words how much it meant to us having Sarah next to us on our big day… We knew as soon as we spoke to her on the phone that we wanted her but thought we should meet her too… my husband is quite shy and reserved in front of people and Sarah made the whole room disappear and just made it us two.. she has wonderful ideas to help anyone from any background. Don’t think twice just book her in now. Quite a sad feeling knowing it’s all over now… thanks again so much Sarah… Heaps of love Andrew Nat Tye and Zane xXxX
Wedding Date: October 21, 2017
Awesome day. Sarah explained everything so well on our Rehearsal that our wedding day went easy and smoothly. Sarah is loving, caring and gets really involved in making your wedding day super special!! You rock Sarah. Thanks so much for being with us for our dream day. You made it such a lovely one xoxo
Wedding Date: September 16, 2017
Thank you for making our wedding day run as smoothly and perfectly as it did!
Chris and I felt so comfortable with you as our celebrant and if we did it again would choose you with out second thought!
We are reasonably unorganised people and you made sure we did everything that needed to be done (thanks for not letting us forget out wedding cert 2 days prior - that would have been fun!)
Thank you for recommending Mike Steffans to us as DJ/MC, you and him worked wonderfully together and everything happened without us needing to think about it.
For people looking for a celebrant, look no further because this ones the best!!!
Thank you Sarah.
Taia & Chris Roxburgh
Wedding Date: February 18, 2017
My wife and i were so happy we chose sarah as our celebrant. From the very first meeting she was very reassuring and gave us plenty of ideas as we did not realy have any.
Sarah made sure we had everything organised in the lead up to the wedding and made sure everything was on track with little reminders if we had forgotten anything.
Sarah also made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch she made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time without being too pushy. She also presented herself well.
I would reccomend sarah to anyone in need of a celebrant.
Wedding Date: March 16, 2017
We cannot thank Sarah enough for an amazing ceremony! She was personable, friendly, humorous and professional and she really took the time to get to know us during the process, right from the first meeting all the way up to the day. This resulted in such a personal and relaxed ceremony with the guests smiling and laughing (and shedding a few tears) through out. So many people commented on how wonderful she was, and I am so happy we found her to be a part of our special day!
Wedding Date: March 25, 2017
Sarah was so much fun to be with - she made us feel comfortable, guided us with suggestions for our ceremony and made us laugh heaps She was organised, replied to emails promptly, answered all our questions patiently and was always punctual. We could not have asked for a more awesome celebrant - guests commented that she was so natural, fun and open. Thanks so much Sarah - our wedding day was so beautiful, and you played a massive part in that. We can’t thank you enough!
Wedding Date: April 8, 2017
Sarah is very very good at what she does! My husband and I, like most first timers, were absolutely clueless on what to do! Sarah guided us through the whole process and made everything really easy. We’ve gotten to know Sarah so well and it was really special to have her marry us.
Sarah had so many great ideas on how to make our day personal and special - we had so many great comments on the ceremony and what a good job Sarah did.
She also has lots of great people that she works with in the industry and we had an amazing DJ & photographer thanks to to Sarah’s recommendations.
Anyone looking for a celebrant should look no further than Sarah Bloxham - we certainly couldn’t have made a better choice!
Wedding Date: March 31, 2017
Would recommend sarah to anyone. She made sure our wedding had beautiful personal touches and she was always patient with reminding us when things needed to be done. Sarah helped our ceremony go as smooth as possible and it was perfect.
Wedding Date: February 5, 2017
When we first met Sarah, we didn’t know anything about the wedding process. Sarah took her time to explain everything in detail and most importantly she reminded us that it is our day so there is nothing to worry about. Leading up to the wedding Sarah made sure to contact us time to time about getting things ready. On the wedding day she arrived early and made sure everyone was on schedule. The wedding ceremony went smoothly- she made sure we were relaxed. Overall, Sarah is absolutely awesome!!!
Wedding Date: March 11, 2017
Hubby and I renewed our vows on the 10th March, we had wanted to do it on our 10th Wedding anniversary but we had just brought a house and funds weren’t readily available.
So off to the Auckland Wedding Show we went! We had met lots of lovely people all wanting us to know they “were” the “ones” Then we met Sarah our Planner, our Councillor! our Savior! She stood out from the ‘other ones” (celebrants)
She was fantastic, she invited us into her home so we could go through how we would like the day to go, she responded to all our crazy emails immediately and assured us every step of the way.
The 10th of March came, the day we had planned was to be a beautiful sunshine day with Guests basking in the sun with throws and picnic baskets and games for the kiddies whilst the photographer snapped away with the sun beaming in our eyes! ........ Well, the weather gods had other plans, it was torrential rain, the plans had changed to indoors, under the Gazebo and the use of the deck to the homestead, Sarah was magnificent, arranging for the seating to be moved, calming the guests and making sure all hands were on deck….she made sure I was looked after and waited for quite some time for the ceremony to start as my daughter was running late (she had set everything up) Sarah made our day just magical you will not regret having her as part of one of the best days of your life.
Wedding Date: March 10, 2017
Sarah you were perfect for us , very professional but at the same time you are very energetic & enthusiastic about what you do - you bought SO much life to our ceremony & everyone enjoyed it - we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generous offer! We are over the moon with the outcome! Thank you! If u could choose more then 5 stars for you I would!
Wedding Date: March 1, 2017
I absolutely dreaded the thought of trying to find the perfect celebrant for our wedding; someone that was upbeat, with a sense of humour, bright and bubbly, creative in their thinking, professional and highly organised. Many of our friends had mentioned that they thought this was the hardest decision they had to make and that we were asking too much with all of our expectations. This was so not the case. As soon as I spoke to Sarah I knew that she was the perfect celebrant for us!
It was incredibly important to us to be able to show our personalities within our ceremony and not to have a ceremony that was easily forgotten or the same as everyone elses. This is where Sarah’s creative and innovative ideas along with her years of experience were invaluable. Thanks to Sarah we had a deep and meaningful ceremony, with just enough wit, great laughter, tears of joy, our story was told beautifully and everyone that attended left smiling stating that they had never attended a wedding quite like ours. I credit Sarah for all of this.
Sarah definitely was our fairy celebrant! She gave us friendly reminders of things that needed to be done, calming us when we needed it, gave us constant praise that celebrate the little milestones of things that we achieved along the way, advice was given as to when to apply for our licence and how, was always in contact with us and was a true joy to work with. I never once had to worry about how our ceremony would go because I knew that we were in Sarah’s very capable hands. This by far was the easiest part of planning our wedding.
I highly recommend Sarah! This by far was one of the best decisions that we made when it came to wedding planning. Sarah made our day extra special by meeting our expectations and making our dreams come true!
Thank you so much Sarah for making our day everything that we hoped for and so much more!
Wedding Date: January 28, 2017
Sarah is amazing, such a bubbly personalityand takes the time to get to know us before the real planning gets under way!
Planning was made a breeze with her understanding of us as a couple and understood that we were a wanting a mix of tradition and our personalities clearly coming through.
On the day she was calm and organised. Helping the boys with everything from their ties to relaxing the nerves in both husband and wife. She was great and thought about the big picture and the little details.
Can’t reccomend her enough!! Loved having her and can’t imagine our perfect day without her being there.
Wedding Date: January 14, 2017
I recently had my boyfriend visit me from another country, he proposed and we want to elope and tie the know before he had to return home, I had no idea how possible or likely this situation would be. I messaged Sarah and she responded immediately, we met very fast and she made sure everything was sorted that would need to be for the big day. Sarah is an amazing celebrant that I would recommend to anyone. She prepared a lovely ceremony for my very small, relaxed occasion. Prepared an awesome reading for me and my now husband and suggested the most gorgeous location. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone, Sarah is friendly, kind and you won’t regret choosing her as your celebrant.
Wedding Date: January 31, 2017
Sarah, thank you so much for being our marriage celebrant. You made our day so person, so special, and such a breeze to organise. Your bubbly personality and amazing energy made you an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended
Wedding Date: January 28, 2017
Sarah was just the perfect person/celebrant at our wedding, we are so glad we had chosen her!
Although she was/is constantly cheerful and pleasant, she was very professional and kept everyone is check and made sure everything went just as planned. The ceremonies would’ve been so much chaotic without this awesome lady! Although she’d only done one Chinese tea ceremony before, she did an amazing job at ours.
We couldn’t be happier about how well the day had gone. Thank you so much for making is even more special and magical. xxx
Wedding Date: December 29, 2016
We meet Sarah almost a year prior to our wedding and everything through the process felt relaxed and well organised. Sarahs wealth of experience and upbeat personality, oozing excitement, helped all the way through to our fantastic day. A fun filled rehearsal in Sarahs garden, timely reminders to make the choices for our ceremony and great ideas to personalize everything to your personality, you couldn’t ask for anything more on the lead up to your special day. On the day Sarah kept everyone feeling relaxed and through in a few laughs along the way which created the perfect mood. The ceremony on the top level of a boat was rather challenging with but with Sarah at our side there was nobody lost overboard and everyone was still standing no thanks to the gale force winds. My husband and I loved how our day went and Sarah helped play an important part so we would highly recommend this fantastic lady for your special day.
Wedding Date: January 3, 2017
Sarah was super organised leading up to our wedding day - she gave us heaps of ideas and kept us on track with writing vows/getting our license etc. On the day she kept us calm and was happy and excited for us. The ceremony was fantastic and she helped and guided us every step of the way. Afterwards o had the sorest feet and she took my shoes off for me!! Haha! She was amazing and I absolutely recommended her
Wedding Date: January 14, 2017
We met Sarah at the Bride and Groom Show and found her to be charismatic and friendly. We booked a consultation with her and went through everything under the sun that me needed to do or might want to do.
Sarah is very knowledgable and approachable. She made sure we knew what we had to do and where everyone needed to be. We can’t thank her enough for helping make our ceremony run smoothly with some good laughs along the way.
Wedding Date: November 19, 2016
My wife and I are so happy that Sarah was our celebrant, she made everything such an easy process. She guided us throughout the whole process and it was a great experience, if anyone thinking about getting married then Sarah’s the perfect celebrant :D
Wedding Date: December 10, 2016
Sarah was absolutely incredible as a marriage celebrant. We first approached Sarah about 18-months before our wedding and the initial consultation was very reassuring.
In the lead up to the wedding there were a lot of timely reminders regarding aspects of the ceremony that we needed to tweak or confirm.
Sarah made the rehearsal the week before the wedding so seamless and relaxed that we were very prepared for the actual ceremony on Saturday. The ceremony itself also ran just as smoothly (other than being rained in) and we had a lot of fun. There were selfies with the celebrant and Sarah took photos while we were signing the license. In general everything was so stress-free and we couldn’t have asked for it to go any better!
If you’re looking at Sarah as a celebrant for your big day, we certainly recommend you don’t look an further!
Wedding Date: November 26, 2016
When we met Sarah she was so bubbly, welcoming and genuinely interested in us! From that first meeting my husband and I knew we wanted Sarah to be a part of our wedding!! Every time we met with and communicated with Sarah she was so organised and made us feel so at ease with her. It being such a busy and daunting time, Sarah made us feel confident and on top of what needed to get done. If we didn’t have things done she would check up and make sure we were ok and offer to help where she could. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant in Sarah. Our wedding day was absolutely AMAZING and perfect, and a lot of that came down to Sarah. We can’t thank you enough Sarah, and will always hold a part of you in our hearts forever! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Jess and Emile
Wedding Date: October 8, 2016
My partner and I initially didn’t choose Sarah as our celebrant, but we are so happy we did!
We wanted a celebrant who wouldn’t be afraid to direct us and suggest ideas for the ceremony as didn’t have a clue regarding the ceremony; but at the same time listened and respected details important to us. Sarah was all of this and more for us.
Our ceremony wouldn’t have been perfect it was if she wasn’t our celebrant. Sarah was bubbly and outgoing and made our rehearsal, and of course, the big day run smoothly. She made everyone in our bridal party feel comfortable and our parents also who were very important to us and wanted them to be part of our day as much as possible.
Her experience and knowledge is so vast she was also able to help us with other details of the wedding.
Highly recommend Sarah!
Wedding Date: September 18, 2016
My husband and I are from Melbourne and we were married by the lovely and fabulous Sarah at the Hilton Auckland on 15th July 2016.
We came across Sarah by chance via a Google search and after reading countless positive reviews we decided to get in touch via email. Naturally, we were nervous as we live in another country. Sarah was calm and professional right from the start. She guided us through the entire planning process and provided helpful tips and advice until the wedding day itself.
We are very happy to have shared our most special day with the fabulous Sarah.
Wedding Date: July 15, 2016
Sarah was amazing from the beginning, we met her at the Auckland wedding expo and as she explained how she does ceremonies we knew straight away we would be choosing her as our celebrant. She was professional and has a great personality. She made the planning process of the ceremony easy and had so many great ideas so we were able to create our own special and unique wedding ceremony. Leading up to the wedding there were things we wanted to change and add and again Sarah would easily do this for us. Since she has done many weddings she was highly organised and ready for anything. On the wedding day the ceremony was perfect, it was everything we exactly asked for. I would recomend Sarah to everyone who is looking for a celebrant. Thank you Sarah for helping us create our very own beautiful ceremony that we will forever remember.
Wedding Date: July 9, 2016
Jack and I would like to thank you, Sarah, for making our wedding such a special day! Throughout the planning you were there if we needed you and guided us in all aspects of the ceremony. You had many wonderful ideas that helped us shape our ceremony to near perfect. You helped our wedding day to run so smoothly and made everyone feel so relaxed and at ease. We shared many memorable moments and laughs that were echoed by our guests during the ceremony. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and they thought you did a great job! You even made a special mention of the fantastic job my Grandpa did escorting me down the isle and the endless possibilities of him being hired out in the future! He of course has made mention of that on numerous occasions! Thank you again for making our day so special!
Wedding Date: April 2, 2016
When we first Sarah she was very bubbly,friendly and helpful.
Sarah kept us up to date with things as the big day arrived.
Even at rehearsal it was perfect.
Come wedding day, it was a fine day and everything went like clockwork, we where both nervous but she made us feel relaxed.
I recommend Sarah to be there marriage celebrant.
You where and are simply the best.
Wedding Date: April 30, 2016
Right from the start Sarah was brilliant to deal with, she invited us into her home and put us completely at ease - we walked away from that first meeting knowing that she would be a perfect fit. She helped us plan a great ceremony, chased us up when we got busy with all the other stuff and calmed my husband’s nerves at the rehearsal. Sarah is bubbly, friendly and helped make our guest feel relaxed and very much a part of our ceremony. We highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: April 15, 2016
Sarah made our wedding planning easy and enjoyable. Our wedding would never of been the same if we did not find Sarah. We expected Marriage Celebrants to be serious and quiet but Sarah was outgoing and bubbly which helped us relax and enjoy our special day. She listens to what you want and if you don’t have any idea, she also is full of ideas. We would recommend her to anyone that needs a marriage celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 19, 2016
Sarah wasn’t the first celebrant we met with (we didn’t quite click with the first), but once we did meet her, we knew she was perfect!
She has a wonderful bubbly personality and very quickly puts you at ease. We found her very professional and organised, open to changes, and really helpful when we were confused/unsure/upset.
Our chilled-out wedding on the beach was hit by a cyclone, and we had to make some tough calls because of the weather, but she held her head up high, kept positive, and had me in giggles, despite me being anxious, soaked, muddy, and battered by the odd umbrella or two.
Despite the weather, it was such an excellent, memorable day, and definitely would not have been the same without her. Thanks again!! xx
Wedding Date: February 29, 2016
Sarah has to be the most efficient person I’ve ever met. The whole day went perfectly to plan with her clear instructions. The ceremony was personalised to us and she gave great ideas of what could work on the day.
Thanks for everything Sarah!
Wedding Date: March 24, 2016
When my fiancée and I begin to investigate how to get married in New Zealand, we saw that getting a celebrant was the way to go. As we begin our search, Sarah Bloxham was the first one we contacted.
After speaking with Sarah on Skype, we felt that Sarah was our choice without a doubt. Her energy and desire assured us our wedding was not only special to us, but also for her. When we met her, it was obvious Sarah was an awesome choice.
Sarah was very conscientious of our specific requests and wonderful to work with. Her wit and her ability to take charge made us feel confident and special. She discussed everything with us and the wedding went off perfectly as planned. Sarah is also, very friendly. So, be ready for a wonderful experience working with her.
Dr. and Mrs. Ortiz
Wedding Date: March 5, 2016
We chose Sarah to be our celebrant after reading the other reviews and then doing a Skype session with her (since we’re based in the UK at the moment). Right from the start she was very informative and friendly, and when we caught up with her a year later she went through the ceremony and the process of getting the wedding certificate with us. I was planning my wedding quite a bit in advance, and anytime I had any questions she responded straight away which is always great when you’re on the other side of the world! Even with all the changes I made to our vows through the year she accommodated with no problems.
On the wedding day Phil, my husband, found her very calming and relaxed which set the scene for the ceremony. Apparently people were having drinks right up until the moment I arrived so to her credit everyone was seated and ready by the time I was ready to walk in - no stragglers or latecomers hanging around! During the rehearsal her instructions on the day were very specific so when the day came round it was easy to remember what to do - although I did miss the bit when she announced me so maybe it might have been good to have her wear a microphone, but that was a very tiny hitch.
We would recommend Sarah as a celebrant, if you want someone who is very organised and obviously has a huge experience with weddings then she’s your lady!
Wedding Date: February 20, 2016
Sarah was amazing on our wedding day! After the venue lost power, she liased with everyone when the ceremony will be starting.
She checked in on my groom and she checked in on me to make sure we are all aware of what is happening. Needless to say she handled everything perfectly in that unforseen circumstance.
We are so happy to have had her as our celebrant as she is bright and bubbly but firm where need be.
She is very organised and makes sure everything is perfect even before you have your rehearsal.
I would highly recommend her!!
Wedding Date: January 5, 2016
My wife and I were extremely happy with Sarah’s services. We had no idea what to do or what we wanted - and together we designed a beautiful ceremony. We could not have done it without Sarah’s advice and expertise. She is very well versed in the way weddings run - even down to the small details ( ties straightened and dresses adjusted). We felt very comfortable and happy to share our day with Sarah and we would highly recommend her vibrant, friendly and organised services to anyone
Wedding Date: March 5, 2016
Sarah is a service provider? No.
Sarah was a service provider. After our ceremony, she’s become family. We have a selfie with Sarah that will forever remain on display in our home. What a gift, what a blessing Sarah has become. Warm, spirited, focused, professional and above all an extraordinary human being. Sarah has not only chosen the perfectly suited career, but more so a life vocation. Thank you will never feel enough.
Wedding Date: March 5, 2016
Thank you for being our celebrant, making the ceremony a magical and memorable occasion. Thank you for respecting the Chinese culture as the tea ceremony part was wonderful and highly acknowledged by the Hong Kong relatives. Thank you for sharing our big day you made things so easy and both of us were very comfortable.

Wedding Date: February 19, 2016
When I started my search for celebrants, Sarah was not the first one I met with but she was the only one who’s first impression lingered. She is a lovely and bubbly person who knows a lot of things about weddings. She was supremely helpful in absolutely everything. I would rate 10/10 and recommend her to absolutely everyone I met. She kept me at ease from the first day I met her right up until now, even after the wedding. Because we had no idea what was expected of us before we met her, she talked us through all the options, timings for things and also kept us trundling along until the day to make sure things were getting done as planned. If I could, I probably would have her organise my entire wedding! I have met a few good celebrants in my years of living, but none as good as Sarah.
Wedding Date: February 8, 2016
Sarah was very structured and thorough; we were organizing from overseas and the ceremony still went off without a hitch. She commands attention easily so that the guests knew what to do throughout the ceremony. Highly recommended!
Wedding Date: January 29, 2016
We wanted a Celebrant who knows what they’re doing; and Sarah certainly does! The whole process was plain sailing! We knew Sarah was the Celebrant we wanted from our initial telephone conversation with her. Sarah provided us with lots of great ideas and respected our wishes throughout the whole process. We highly recommend Sarah, and Sarah, thank you.
Wedding Date: January 24, 2016
Sarah was absolutely amazing. She was very easy to deal with prior to the wedding, keeping us on track and making both of us feel completely at ease. When the day came, she ensured the ceremony ran smoothly and to plan. I have got so many lovely comments about how excellent her performance was from our guests. Sarah is absolutely genuine and so down to earth. We are both over the moon with how well everything went, of which Sarah was a huge contributor to the smooth running of the wedding. We would 100% recommend Sarah to anyone.
Thanks again Sarah!!!
Wedding Date: January 30, 2016
Sarah is an incredible celebrant and a beautiful person. After skyping with her initially we both knew we wanted her to marry us. Sarah is able to gauge where people are at in terms of their thoughts and vision for a ceremony and provide the right amount of input. We felt safe and secure on our wedding day in Sarah’s hands and it couldn’t of gone any better! The feedback from our family and friends about Sarah has been phenomenal and we will be singing her praises for years to come. Thank you Sarah.
Wedding Date: January 16, 2016
We met Sarah at the wedding show only weeks after being engaged, we immediately felt comfortable with Sarah and made us feel at ease we as had no idea what we were doing. Sarah has a great bubbly personality and helped keep us organised. No question was ever a silly question and Sarah stayed on top of us when things got busy and helped us through our to do list. We ( I ) changed a few things last minute in regards to our ceremony and Sarah was more than accommodating.
Our wedding day was perfect in everyway and Sarah was great at keeping the boys in line when needed and helped everything run so smoothly. We truly appreciate everything that you did for us, we would recommend Sarah to any of our friends who are getting married!
Wedding Date: November 15, 2015
Sarah is one of the most amazing people I have ever met, living overseas and getting married in New Zealand was a bit daunting for us, but from the minute we spoke to Sarah she put our mind at ease, she was always excellent at replying to my hundreds of emails, and always had a smile on her face when we saw her, the ceremony ran so smoothly! Thank you so much Sarah, you were seriously incrediable, you are so bubbly and made us both feel so comfortable! I wish we could get married again so we can have you again!
Wedding Date: December 19, 2015
As an Australian couple we decided to marry, so had to look at overseas options. We found Sarah on the Same Sex Wedding Directory website and began our extraordinary journey into long distance wedding planning.
Our needs were simple and unique. We wanted to marry as pilgrims without fuss or fanfare. And - we had no idea how to do this!
Sarah was amazing. She forged a strong, instant connection with us ; guided us through the marriage process, providing the support, information and gentleness that we needed. Sarah taught us how to fulfil the NZ legal requirements, found us a wonderful photographer and provided the witnesses we required. Staying in close connection with us in Australia was no easy task, but Sarah managed to do this extremely well, answering all our queries, guiding and directing us. She provided beautiful wedding vows ; suggested St Heliers as the most picturesque backdrop for our wedding day with the kindest, most gracious persona.
We met Sarah for the first time the day before our wedding. We were nervous, she was lovely. A gentle, confident and happy woman who integrated our individual needs into the ceremony perfectly.
Just when we thought our day couldn’t be more ideal, Sarah arrived at our wedding with wooden pilgrim sticks she had collected herself for us - how wonderful to use real sticks and not our bought walking poles!
Thanks to Sarah our wedding day was absolutely flawless, providing memories that we will cherish forever.
We cannot recommend Sarah highly enough - she is THE CELEBRANT you need for your special union.
Thank you Sarah, we are forever grateful! Linda and Marilyn

Sarah is amazing! She is so organised, punctual and well spoken which is exactly what I needed being such an organsied person myself. She helped us through the whole process from writing our vows and promises to making sure the day went as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone!
Wedding Date: October 10, 2015
Sarah was very organised and kept a very calm head. she was very good with making sure my husband and I did our vows ontime and she sent us heaps of reminders. I would definitely recommend Sarah to any soon to be newly weds.
Wedding Date: March 29, 2015
We were so happy with our wedding! Many of our guests mentioned that they were very impressed with how Sarah conducted the ceremony and her bubbly, warm personality made everyone feel relaxed. She tailored the ceremony to exactly how we wanted it, and we were confident that things would run smoothly because of her attention to detail and professionalism. We would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: July 25, 2015
Sarah was a fantastic celebrant. She is kind, caring and down to earth. She was very calming and really helped my wife de-stress in the lead up to our wedding. She had really useful suggestions and gave us great advice throughout the process. When we were finding it difficult to write parts of our ceremony, she was gently encouraging but also ensured we got the job done. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be happier. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant. Thanks Sarah!
Wedding Date: April 25, 2015
I met Sarah at the wedding show, she was really helpful and knowledgeable.
She was my first and only choice as our celebrant and after meeting her my (future) husband felt the same way. From the first day we met her we seemed to just click and we knew that she was the right person to marry us. She made our ceremony so special, so different and so us- and personalized it to reflect our personalities.
She helped us write our ceremony including vows and promises that were individual and special to us both.
On the day she was super organised, and helped the day run to time which was really appreciated.
We would recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 28, 2015
I first met Sarah at a wedding expo - she recognised that I was overwhelmed by the options on offer and took the time to just talk to me, not sell to me which I really appreciated.
She was my first and only choice as our celebrant and after meeting her my (future) husband felt the same way.
Sarah is very enthusiastic and committed to her role as celebrant and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone knows their responsibilities, their marks and their cues. She makes it easy.
I loved that she enjoyed the ceremony as much as any of the guests and it was really fun to have her there with us taking us through such an important journey.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah to any couple looking for a celebrant!
Wedding Date: March 21, 2015
Sarah was excellent from the moment I meet her to our Skype conversation a few weeks later.
At our rehearsal Sarah was amazing as we were very emotional and she made it so easy.
On the day we couldn’t have asked for a more professional, friendly and humorous celebrant. We both felt at ease and she really helped to keep us calm.
We can’t thank Sarah enough for making our day the best ever! She is amazing and we are so lucky to have her as our celebrant.
Wedding Date: April 12, 2015
The Esplanade, Devonport.
Sarah was professional from the start with her resources and the initial meeting. We had no worries at all with planning our own ceremony and taking on some of her suggestions. Her suggestions were practical and heartfelt, it really helps having someone on the outside looking in to put things into perspective.
As our wedding was on Easter Saturday (we had a few from out of town), Sarah was required to interrupt her own long weekend away to come back to Auckland for our evening. Something we can not appreciate enough. Our ceremony went super smoothly. The Bride, Groom, 4 Bridesmaids, 2 Grooms men and 3 Flower girls (two of them aged 2!) all knew what to do and when to do it.
We had many positive comments regarding the evening as a whole, the venue, the ceremony and specifically our celebrant, Sarah. She really connected with our guests, including them and making them feel welcome.
I will recommend Sarah to anyone who asks, I have already. Thank you Sarah.
Wedding Date: April 4, 2015
We were planning our wedding in Auckland just in 3 months from all the way in Singapore Sarah is very professional and diligent in keeping track of what we need to do. Sarah is very experienced and is always helpful with our questions on the ceremony and licensing. our ceremony became very personal and touching thanks to Sarah. The ceremony ran very smoothly and beautifully. Her idea of time capsule is also great. Thank you for becoming an important part of our wedding
Wedding Date: April 11, 2015
Sarah Bloxham is a amazing, fun, vibrant, effervescent and full of life wedding celebrant ...
I loved how she kept the Grooms attention when his mind started drifting off about wedding planning, so funny ,,, look at me ... she sees the signs!!!
When we didn’t know what to do about something with the wedding we would ask Sarah, her knowledge on weddings, well ... Sarah should be a wedding planner too!
On our wedding day Sarah was relaxed and very calming ... when we realised we had forgotten to bring the music ... SIGH ... I have to say this is where you see her flexibility ... Sarah just told to guests to talk amongst themselves while we get the important stuff done ... it was so relaxing and so were our guests ... as soon as we were finished Sarah had them all back on track with all their attention back on us.
Sarah had the guests laughing with tears in their eyes when she told our story as Sarah knows how to mould a crowd and keep their attention.
Sarah looks great in her presentation, she takes pride in everything she does and her professionalism is out standing.
Wedding Date: March 27, 2015
Wow where to start! Firstly Sarah was the best celebrant we could have hoped for- she was so professional and organized that we felt completely relaxed leading up to the wedding knowing that she had everything under control.
From the first day we met her we seemed to just click and we knew that she was the right person to marry us. She made our ceremony so special, so different and so us- and personalized it to reflect our personalities.
When I arrived at the venue she was there to calm me down and make me feel relaxed, she controlled the crowds so well and added an element of humor to our ceremony. Sarah’s idea of the rose ceremony and giving of gifts to the mothers really made it intimate and personal and we received so many comments from the guests saying that it was so special and was the best ceremony they had been to.
We can’t thank her enough for making our dream wedding come true, it was more perfect than we could have ever imagined! She really is an amazing person and anyone would be lucky to have her as their celebrant.
Wedding Date: April 4, 2015
Sarah was without a doubt the best person we could have hoped for in making our ceremony perfect for us.
Her enthusiasm, experience and great humour were clear from when we made our first enquiries via email and Skype. The fact that Sarah was able to provide so much reassurance while we were still on the other side of the world is certainly a testament to her professionalism and warmth.
She then also guided us efficiently through the planning and made sure we felt fully prepared for our ceremony.
It was a pleasure to have Sarah there with us on our wedding day. Everything ran smoothly and she helped any slightly nervous attendants hold it together. She was also very much in control, ensuring our guests enjoyed themselves, during a ceremony we absolutely loved.
Wedding Date: April 11, 2015
We were recommended to seek out Sarah as our wedding celebrant, and we are just so pleased we were able to have her join our marriage together.
The day was just perfect, and the feel was light and funny and comfortable.
Sarah made everyone and everything feel at ease and it all just flowed so well without any hiccups along the way. If they were there, they were just part of the day.
Family and friends both commented how great Sarah was as a celebrant and her presence was joyful - just how we wanted it to be!
Wedding Date: February 14, 2015
Sarah was our wedding celebrant and we can say she is perfect!!! Very positive person, always smiling! She helped us a lot for the preparation of the ceremony and also gave us great ideas. We were very confused when we came to her and didn’t knew from where to start and what to ask.
Sarah was the person who explained and prepared everything. From the first 5 minutes of our conversation we understood that she is a real professional and that our ceremony will be perfect! And it really was!!!
Thank you so much Sarah!!! xx
Wedding Date: February 14, 2015
The best piece of advice I got about organising our wedding was was ‘think of what matters the most, everything else will work out’.
Having a well run ceremony that reflected who we are and covered all that mattered to us was important. Choosing an experienced celebrant like Sarah ensured this aspect of the wedding was taken care of.
She helped us write our ceremony including vows and promises that were individual and special to us both.
On the day she was super organised, fitted right in and we were even asked if she was a family friend well known to us both.
We would recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 1, 2015
Sarah was amazing right from the start with a great sense of humour but also the sterness to move things along. We felt comfortable from the very first meeting and Sarah actually came highly recommended by some friends who Sarah had married recently. Was not dissapointed! Honestly, if you are looking for a celebrant for your wedding you simply cannot look past Sarah. Lovely lovely lady with great knowledge, patience and organsational skills. Made everything easier, less stressful and injected some fun in there. Couldnt of asked for any more.
Wedding Date: February 5, 2015
Our wedding was on Sunday 25th January 2015 at Markovina and Sarah was our celebrant. We could not have asked for a better person to marry us! In the lead up to and on the day Sarah was professional, organized, kept us both calm and made us both feel relaxed. She made the whole process stress free by doing a rehearsal so we all knew what would happen and when. We will be recommending Sarah to everyone we know who is getting married in the future! Thank you so much Sarah for everything, you truly are amazing!
Wedding Date: January 25, 2015
Sarah was the perfect fit for our wedding.
Right from our first meeting she was excited for us and put us at ease. We left with heads full of ideas and hands full of examples of different services and readings. My grooms head was spinning with the amount of information we had covered in just 1 hour. She worked with us to create the vows, chose the readings and bring in other special moments that meant the most to us.
Sarah had great ideas of how in include all 5 children in the ceremony so everyone knew they were a special, important part of the wedding and it wasn’t just about the bride and groom.
On the day she made sure everyone was in the right place, knew what they needed to do and, most importantly, were relaxed and excited about why we were all there.
Thank you Sarah for sharing your wealth of knowledge and for having fun with us planning our big day.
Wedding Date: August 23, 2014
Sarah was our celebrant for our January 16 wedding. From the moment we first contacted her it was such an easy and pleasant experience! We are both very happy with our ceremony, short sweet funny and light hearted which is very us. The day couldn’t have gone better. We received a lot of feedback from our guests at how great our ceremony was. Thank you Sarah for making it such a memorable day for us both!
Wedding Date: January 16, 2015
I had originally booked someone else who said a “rehearsal” wasn’t needed its easy! Being a first time (and last) bride i had no experience with how this all went so took their word.. then i stumbled across Sarah at the Wedding Show and within 10 mins she had me changing my mind and cancelling the celebrant we had and hiring her on the spot! From the word go she took charge (exactly what we need and wanted) she was there nagging me for vows etc when times got busy and I kept putting them off, organised all my guest and bridal party and of course had the much needed rehearsal that the first celebrant said wasn’t required… Boy there is a lot more to a ceremony than meets the eye that is for sure and no matter what someone tells you, a rehersal is definitley needed.. For any fellow brides, make sure you have a celebrant like Sarah who knows all the ins and out of a wedding. She also isn’t the type to sit back and let you choose silly sounding vows etc, shell point you in the right direction and honestly amongst all the other palnning of a wedding, its exactly what you need from your celebrant. Our ceremony was amazing, sarah was very humerous and professional and i couldnt have asked for a better person to marry me and my husband. Thanks Sarah
Wedding Date: January 3, 2015
Thank you so much for being our special celebrant on our special day. Everything from the first meeting till the wedding was easy, organized and carefree. You were very thorough just like me and it just helped everything run smoothly and stopped me from worrying about little details. You’re fun and bubbly personality shone through at our ceremony which made you very relatable to all of our friends and family. Your experience and passion shines through. You made our perfect day even more perfect and for that we are grateful. Thanks from Monique & Rory.
Wedding Date: October 12, 2014
Wow! Sarah was awesome from start to finish. She guided Harald and I like a true professional but with great fun and humour. She kept us on track with planning and had huge resources which saved so much time. She is flexible and always fitted into our schedule which we needed as we were both working during the planning process. Her bubbly nature makes her a pleasure to be around.
I think the biggest compliment paid the day of our wedding about Sarah, was when a very good old friend of mine asked (with nose slightly out of joint!) why she had never met Sarah before, as clearly she was a good friend of ours as she knew us so well! We had only met Sarah 6 months before the wedding. She had done such an amazing job of personalising the ceremony that many people thought she was a family friend!
Thanks so much again Sarah for helping make our wedding such a special day.
Wedding Date: September 5, 2014
When Faris & I decided to get married in Auckland, I knew straight away it would have to be Sarah who was going to get us married.
Sarah is truly a professional with her work, yet with a larger than life personality. I had met Sarah before and knew instantly she would be the perfect fit for our wedding. She has a great process in place which kept us both busy people on our toes and made the whole process so simple and stress less . After having a rehearsal with her, the ceremony on day was a breeze as we knew where she would fit in and what we had to do . It was an amazing day for us and Sarah certainly contributed to that. Thank you once again Sarah.
Wedding Date: November 16, 2014
Thanks, Sarah for all your help, tips, and overall for your patience, ( we were running late however she was very sympathetic) and despite that it was so windy, it was such a lovely ceremony, she was very professional, and she has helped us a lot with her knowledge about weddings, she even helped us to correct our vows, since english is not our first language, She is very kind and lovely women with a good sense of humor as well. My husband and I will definitely recommend her as your celebrant as well.
Thanks a lot xoxo.
Sandra and Daniel.
Wedding Date: September 29, 2014
What an amazing day, one out of the box. Sarah excelled in making the wedding party relaxed and the whole ceremony went off without a hitch. Even throwing a dove release at the last minute was accommodated with ease and a smile..
Sarah was a huge part of the best day of our lives and we could not recommend her more to other couples.
Wedding Date: October 25, 2014
After the first time I met Sarah I went home and told my partner that we had to have her as our celebrant
Sarah is both professional and friendly. She was a great help during the whole process of planning our ceremony and kept us on track with the various tasks we had to do. She was a great help for us to customise our ceremony and create something that really fit our personalities.
Sarah’s bubbly personality was definitely evident during our ceremony and helped to put us both at ease standing in front of all those people!
Thank you so much Sarah for being a part of our special day!
Wedding Date: October 4, 2014
Sarah is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. Completely genuine and a brilliant sense of humour!!!!!
The moment we skyped Sarah we immediately knew she was the one for us. Professional and beyond helpful, Sarah exceeded our expectations and we could not rate her highly enough. The fact that we were coming over from Australia did not phase her, and she was able to give us excellent advice and put our minds at ease from the start. We are so glad that we found Sarah and that she was able to be there and guide us through our special day.
If we could rate higher than 5 stars we would - this wonderful lady truly does deserve it!
Wedding Date: October 3, 2014
Sarah was truly amazing at our wedding - my mum mentioned that she felt like an old family friend. She really put my partner and I at ease from the first time we met right up until we said I do.
Sarah was full of information and made it really easy to construct our ceremony and make it about us, keeping it true to who we are as well as saving a few traditions.
if you want someone who will be friendly, open and fun plus make your wedding ceremony absolutely beautiful, Sarah is for you. (she was also the only celebrant we met with - she was just the perfect fit!)
Wedding Date: October 4, 2014
Sarah was just the right Celebrant for us, she fitted in perfectly. She made us feel comfortable and we knew that she’d get the job done, from making sure the girls held their bouquets correctly to making sure the boys had their ties on straight.
Sarah made us feel relaxed planning our ceremony and on our actual wedding day. We also had a few laughs along the way.
Our guests commented that she was the right choice, that she had a great attitude and obviously was passionate about what she does.
Thanks Sarah for being a huge part of our successful day.
Wedding Date: April 5, 2014
Sarah was simply amazing. The whole process of initial meeting to wedding day felt very organic.
We initially got in touch while living in Canberra, Australia, however chatted via Skype and got the ball rolling. Neither of us knew what to expect or what to do, however Sarah gave us everything we needed to know and guided us through the ceremonies processes.
We finally met in person a few days before the wedding, where she ran us through the rehearsal and made us feel at ease. This was a huge help as we were both a ball of nerves. On the day, Sarah was nothing short of the ultimate professional and everything went off without a hitch. She shared jokes and organised the groom and his boys (which is a bit like herding cats). We could not have asked for a better celebrant and highly recommend Sarah to anyone searching for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: May 17, 2014
Sarah was absolutely incredible and we couldn’t have picked anyone better! She made our wedding ceremony just perfect and so personal to us. We loved every moment and were happy to have her part of our day. I highly reccomend Sarah if youre after someone professional, friendly and fun. Thank you so much Sarah, from mr and mrs Clarke =)
Wedding Date: March 29, 2014
We had Sarah as wedding celebrant for our very, very small and intimate wedding at Bastion Point. We couldn’t have chosen anyone better. Us being a foreign couple and living overseas was no obstacle, as Sarah helped us with our plans via Skype and email and was extremely approachable. She is very organised, experienced and has a great sense of humour, contributing lots of ideas and options for our wedding ceremony. She is also very flexible and open to special requests such as time constraints, venue, musicians… Even our photographer remarked on how professional she is! We are extremely grateful to Sarah for her continued support and we can only highly recommend her to other couples who wish to make their wedding day a memorable one.

Sarah is a brilliant celebrant who really added in a such a positive way to the success of our day. She was friendly and fun but also highly efficient and professional at every meeting. She gave us many great tips about the finer details of our ceremony, from wording to where to stand and why. I had many comments from guests afterwards telling me how impressed they were with the delivery of the ceremony and one of my bridesmaids who had recently been married herself said she wished she had had Sarah for here wedding! Anyone who uses Sarah can be confident that they will have a fabulous ceremony, I highly recommend her as a celebrant!
Wedding Date: April 3, 2014
After our first meeting with Sarah at the Bride & Groom show we both knew she was the perfect celebrant for us. She was there for us every step of the way making sure we were staying on track & keeping the boisterous groomsmen in line.
Wedding Date: April 4, 2014
Sarah truly is the best celebrant in Auckland! She was there from start to finish and made our ceremony easy and exactly what we wanted. There was mayhem at a few stages through our planning and she was always a calming influence. Sarah liaised with the photographer, videographer and groom/groomsmen to make sure everything was perfect when I arrived. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough! We would like to thank her from the very bottom of our hearts for being part of our day. She is also very photogenic which is a big plus . - Ally & Dale March 2014.
Wedding Date: March 1, 2014
Thank you so much for being our special celebrant on Friday night, you were fabulous and delivered exactly what we wanted. Sarah coped so well with the spontaneity (a surprise wedding in front of 85 family and friends) and the loud and crazy crowd, what a great sense of humour!! We have had lots of comments about what a great celebrant Sarah was, in fact many thought you were a friend. So a huge thank you. Fiona and Trevor.
Wedding Date: October 4, 2013
Sarah was our celebrant for our surprise wedding on 11/11/11 at 11.00am. with 11 guest ( Sarah’s 100 wedding). Well done Sarah at Mission Bay. She did an excellent job, was everything that we could have wanted on our special day and date. She understood what we wanted and was very much apart of making our day as special as it was. Great with my nephew, who thought she was just great. Nothing was too much trouble and she has great ideas.
In a nutshell she made it the special day it was. At the time we did not live in Auckland but distance was no barrier to her. Thank you Sarah for just being you.
Wedding Date: November 11, 2011
Sarah has been instrumental in our wedding, I believe if it wasn’t for her it wouldn’t have been the wedding of our dreams. She pulled the ceremony together so well. She did such an excellent job, all of our guests were very impressed. One of our closest friends who has attended lots of weddings told us she thought that Sarah did an excellent job and told us that it was absolutely perfect. I think it telling that the string quartet who attend lots of weddings told us that it was the best ceremony that they had attended.
I’m so glad we chose Sarah, she is worth every cent, in fact, after the ceremony I would gladly have paid more because she made the ceremony. We were both so anxious and she did a great job of calming us down and making sure that everything runs smoothly. If you want the perfect wedding or at least ceremony I highly recommend you choose Sarah too, you won’t regret the decision. She is highly organised, extremely professional, vivacious and bubbly. At the end of the day we felt that Sarah had become a close friend.
