When looking for a celebrant for our special day at Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat in Twizel, it only took a quick online search to see that Tricia came highly recommended. Tricia came to our home to meet with us and she instantly made us both feel relaxed and comfortable as we got to know each other. We decided straight away that she was the right fit for us. She had lots of good ideas for us to choose from and ran a slick professional service. We couldn’t have asked for anything better - thank you Tricia.

Tricia was a wonderful celebrant for our wedding in March 2020. Our first meeting with her at our home was relaxed and comfortable. She really cared about who we were as people, what marriage meant to us and our approach to the day. She provided many resources to help us plan our ceremony and guided us along our planning journey without fuss or stress. In the week before the wedding, Tricia was incredibly flexible and accommodating with last minute changes in the face of the rapidly changing Covid-19 landscape. We were very happy with Tricia as our celebrant and would not hesitate to recommend her.
Wedding Date: March 21, 2020
Tricia was the perfect celebrant for our ceremony. Her warm, and down to earth nature made us both feel very comfortable - not just during the ceremony, but in the lead up to it as well. She gave us all the time we needed to discuss the proceedings in a couple of meetings beforehand, as well as great email correspondence and idea documents. She will guide when you need to be guided but is very good at ensuring you get the ceremony that you want. We were very happy that she was part of our day.
Wedding Date: February 22, 2020
We met Tricia at a wedding expo and really liked her warm & friendly nature. She was very accommodating and supplied us with lots of info. As it closer to our wedding date we unfortunately had to change our special day from a wedding to a commitment ceremony due a divorce not coming through in time. Despite our disappointment Tricia was amazing at helping us create the right vows to suit our circumstance. She was very positive and encouraging and helped to make our special day run very smoothly. Would highly recommend Tricia
Wedding Date: March 8, 2019
I have known Tricia, through my late Grandma, since I was a child living in Dunedin so when I got engaged she was the first person I wanted to ask to be involved in our day. Planning the ceremony from Australia was effortless with Tricia being so prompt in emails and skype calls. She was incredibly flexible when we decided to move our wedding forward six months and provided great guidance while planning what we want to include in our ceremony. Once we arrived in Christchurch Tricia made time around the busy Christmas period to meet with us in person and was in contact with us in the lead up to December 30th. She helped us adapt the ceremony for a bridesmaid who shattered her ankle four weeks before the wedding and brought a happy and calming presence to the rehearsal the day before and the day itself. Having the link to my childhood and my Grandma was incredibly special to me and we will forever be thankful to Tricia for her special touches in so many parts of the day.
Wedding Date: December 30, 2018
Tricia was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day and put us at ease, making the process so easy and fun. Tricia was wonderful to work with and we are so pleased she was there for us on our special day. Tricia wrote some beautiful words about our grandparents who had passed and really got to know us and our family to make it a very personal experience. I would recommend Tricia to anyone looking for a celebrant as she truly is wonderful.
Wedding Date: February 16, 2019
Tricia was the celebrant for our wedding on the 03/11/2018 and was absolutely amazing! Tricia arranged to meet with us about a month before our wedding to get to know us and discuss our vision for the wedding ceremony. Tricia’s knowledge and experience made the entire process simple and straight forward. We had no idea what type of ceremony we wanted and we didn’t know where to start. Tricia listened to the very few ideas that we did have and was able to provide us with plenty of material and options to make the ceremony unique to our relationship. From there it was a matter of picking what we liked and corresponding via email.
Tricia braved the terrible weather the day before our wedding and meet with us at the botanic gardens to run through the wedding rehearsal. Tricia remained positive about the outdoor wedding but also discussed how things would change if we needed to change to our indoor location. Despite the weather, Tricia made sure everything was perfect and we were happy before leaving.
The wedding day itself was nothing shy of perfect. I was extremely late and Tricia was very patient, she remained in contact with us throughout the morning and helped my partner to feel at ease while he waited for me to arrive.
Tricia held a beautiful ceremony which captured our relationship, our sense of humour and love for one another. I don’t think it could have been anymore us!
I highly recommend Tricia to anyone looking for a marriage celebrant. Thank you Tricia for making our day unforgettable, we truly appreciate everything you did for us and it wouldn’t have been the same without your knowledge and experience.

Wedding Date: November 3, 2018
Coming “home” to NZ to get married after many years living O/S, we were grateful to get a strong recommendation and endorsement from family members for Tricia’s ability to conduct a beautiful ceremony.
From first contact via telephone call and subsequently through email and Skype, Tricia provided us with all the knowledge, guidance and suggestions we needed with a warm & friendly manner. This allowed us to be comfortable before we eventually met in person her two days before the big day.
The ceremony was indeed beautiful, my mother said it was the best wedding she’d ever been to!
Very happy to recommend Tricia’s services to all, and confident that she will work hard to make her role appear effortless and understated - ideal as it’s your big day!
Wedding Date: September 27, 2018
Roy and I were so lucky to have chosen Tricia. We simply chose her as our celebrant because she looked like Roy’s dear sister Sharon, and by her smile we guessed she would have the same cheery personality. How right we were:
Tricia was very easy to talk to, and work with. She met us, took on board our ideas and designed a religious service for a non-religious venue with skill and love. We are both 70 years old, and so careful adapting of the traditional service presentation was necessary - she complied, and was audible and clear-spoken - I especially liked our reading from 1 John 4 which was so well presented by her. Her choice of prayer and blessing were perfect.
We had many complimentary comments about her presentation from our guests. Her presence before and after the service was discreet; and she is lovely to look at, too. All-in-all, we were a very privileged bride and groom, and would recommend Tricia for weddings of all ages - Mr and Mrs Roy and Judy Bryant.
Wedding Date: September 15, 2018
Right from our first meeting with Tricia we found her to be very warm and welcoming. Tricia’s friendly easy going manner put us at ease and we were able to speak freely with her about our thoughts and hopes for our wedding.
Tricia had some wonderful ideas to inspire us and we appreciated her guidance. Nothing was too much bother.
On the day we felt relaxed and in good hands as Tricia conducted our ceremony with care and professionalism.
Tricia you also looked lovely!
We feel we have made a friend. Thank you so much.
Debbie and Tony Benjamin
Wedding Date: April 14, 2018
Tricia was a pleasure to deal with right from the outset. She was very organised and professional. She made us feel very relaxed that she had her side of things all under control. We would definately reccommend her to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant.
Wedding Date: April 7, 2018
Tricia did an amazing job being our celebrant. She made our ceremony feel intimate and personal, which is exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend her to everyone looking for a celebrant for their special day. Our ceremony felt perfect, thank you Tricia!!!
Wedding Date: March 24, 2018
What a wonderful lady Tricia is, We found her very helpful and so easy to get along with. Tricia gave us lots of information about the different ceremonies she has and we picked what we wanted and she put it altogther for us on our special day. I would recommend her to others for a wedding or other special event…
Wedding Date: March 10, 2018
Tricia did a fantastic job in officiating our ceremony!! Very professional, warm and personable I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks so much Tricia
Wedding Date: January 6, 2018
My wife Amanda and I had the pleasure of Tricia officiate at our wedding last weekend. Tricia was fantastic to work with from the beginning, guiding us through the whole process. She was always professional and quickly got the feel of the ceremony we wanted to create. She was always available for us to talk to or email. On the day Tricia made us both feel completely at ease, creating the magical experience we wanted. We wouldn’t hesitate too recommended Tricia to any friends or family who needed a celebrant.
Wedding Date: October 21, 2017
Tricia was absolutely wonderful officiating our wedding this past weekend. She is so genuine and knowledgeable which is exactly what we needed. Tricia supplied a great resource of ideas for wording and traditions that we could draw on when planning our ceremony and she was incredibly accommodating to our short time frame. She was brilliant working with our two young children and I had the most relaxed ceremony knowing that she was with us and keeping everything under control. I found that others in the wedding industry, such as venues and photographers all had wonderful things to say about Tricia and I can see why!
Wedding Date: October 15, 2017
I met Tricia at a wedding expo in Christchurch and knew immediately she was the perfect celebrant for us. She made us both feel very comfortable, and the whole experience was very straightforward. We had the most amazing day, and our ceremony was my favourite part.
Wedding Date: April 29, 2017
When we met Tricia for the first time, it was an easy decision to book her for our wedding ceremony. She answered any questions we had promptly and provided information when requested, she was consistently approachable throughout the planning stages. During the ceremony she kept everyone informed, as we waited for some family members who were running late. She also made the ceremony feel very intimate, which I feel was a definite strength on her part.
We could not have chosen a more sensitive and caring celebrant for our special day. She topped it off with a wedding gift left on our signing table, which was totally unexpected but very much appreciated and I feel goes a long way to showing the type of person she is.
Wedding Date: April 15, 2017
I met Tricia at a wedding expo in Christchurch where I was on the look out for celebrants. After meeting and inquiring about the services of a number of other celebrants who were quite pushy and rude, I spoke to Tricia who was like a breath of fresh air. She was personable and friendly and made me feel like I was a family friend, rather than a potential client. She was professional and knowledgeable providing us with written material that helped us plan the ceremony with ease. On the day, she was well spoken and gave us little prompts throughout the ceremony. Would definitely recommend to any couple who are wanting a celebrant.
Wedding Date: March 3, 2017
Tricia Warwich-Naziris was our chosen celebrant for our wedding at Larnach Castle. From the start we found Tricia to be very helpful. We hadn’t been to many weddings and we weren’t really sure on what we wanted in a ceremony. Tricia provided us with many options and different traditions to help us make decisions.
One week prior to our wedding we had our rehearsal and the date we had chosen didn’t suit our wedding coordinator, so Tricia who had done many weddings at Larnach Castle stepped up and walked us through everything. On the day of the wedding everything went perfectly. We couldn’t recommend Tricia enough for how professional and helpful she is.
Wedding Date: February 4, 2017
Tricia was an amazing celebrant! She made getting married super easy and we had so many compliments on our celebrant! We rate her and so did everyone else. Thanks Tricia, you’re awesome. Olivia and Dylan x
Wedding Date: January 21, 2017

Thank you Tricia for all you have done for us in helping with organizing and arranging the ceremony, as well as celebrating it.

Wedding Date: December 14, 2016
Tricia is a lovely lady, she was a pleasure to work with and just made the whole experience easy.

I would recommend you to everyone i know. XX

Tricia, thank you, you were just so perfect for our day.
We were married in a very small wedding at a bach at the beach and Tricia fitted into the day so well.
Her genuine, gentle nature was warm and welcoming from the beginning.
She provided us with advice and guidence for our vows but the space to make them our own.
Thank you again xxx
Wedding Date: October 21, 2016

We had an engagement party that turned into a surprise wedding. Tricia was with us the whole way. She did an amazing job. She is so easy to talk to, to deal with, happy to go with what ever it is you want or need, was only ever a phone call or email away and the whole ceremony went perfectly.
Wedding Date: May 14, 2016
Tricia was absolutely wonderful. She stood out to us at the 2015 bridal expo in christchurch. As soon as we had a conversation with her we knew she was the lady for us. She was very helpful the whole way. Had heaps of information and templates we were able to go through to get our ceremony how we wanted it. She kept in good contact and was able to answer any questions we had. She made us feel comfortable on the day and the ceremony went smoothly even though I was so nervous.
Thank you so much.
Wedding Date: April 9, 2016
Tricia was excellent for our wedding.
Tricia was easy to work with, especially as we only moved back to NZ three weeks before the wedding. There was no pressure to decide on the service prior to our arrival. Once in NZ we met up and Tricia worked with our suggestions both via email and in person which was great.
During the ceremony we both felt relaxed and at ease. Delivery was excellent. Tricia blended into the ceremony exactly as we wanted.
We would no hesitation in recommending her!
Wedding Date: March 5, 2016
Having moved from the UK to live in NZ permanently, my husband and I didn’t really know where to start with planning a wedding in NZ, Tricia was informative and really helpful, we knew within seconds of meeting Tricia that we wanted to use her as our celebrant as she put us at ease and truly wanted what we felt comfortable with.
Communication in the run up to the day was really good, she kept in touch via email and phone calls all along the whole process, giving us lots of relevant information and making helpful suggestions.
We are not big on being in the limelight and Tricia was really good at making us feel at ease on the day and following up to the day making it a fun experiance for us both overall. she was professional and friendly and just awesome, it was like being married by an old friend, I would definitely recommend Tricia to anyone who asks as she is a truly lovely person and a pleasure to work with and made our day really special.
Thank you Tricia for everything.
Wedding Date: February 26, 2016

Wedding Date: February 20, 2016
We had great time cause Tricia made all processing smoothly that wedding day. Thank you Tricia! You are the best celebrant!!!!!
Wedding Date: January 31, 2016
It took less than five minutes on Skype for Paul and I to know that Tricia was going to be an amazing part of our big day. We had no idea what we were doing and Tricia took us through the journey step by step… even from 12,000 miles away. Tricia was always available by email and offered great ideas for our ceremony, in particular helping me to find special jobs for my little flower girls. On the day Tricia was the picture of professionalism: calm, welcoming, patient and polite. She appeared as if by magic, made us feel completely at ease, conducted the ceremony with humour and grace, and then quietly left us to our afternoon. I can’t recommend Tricia highly enough.
Wedding Date: January 14, 2016
We found Tricia amazing to deal with. She was so relaxed, and got to know a little bit about us so she could help us plan a ceremony that really suited who we were. She was easy to get in touch with, and answered our questions promptly. Tricia put together a beautiful ceremony plan for us, and it was great to have her as part of our special day. I highly recommend her to anybody!
Wedding Date: December 19, 2015
Tricia was everything that we could have hoped for in a celebrant. She was incredibly friendly, willing to come to our house to just talk to us so we could get a feel for what she would be like as a celebrant. She helped us every step of the way, offering to assist us in writing our vows, but letting us do it ourselves. She let us choose the format, words and content of the ceremony, and while she provided every assistance, she always made sure that we got what we wanted from our day. She was also very reasonable in not charging us extra for our rehearasal.
Wedding Date: January 17, 2016
From the moment we made contact with Tricia we knew we had chosen a fantastic person for our ceremony. She was very flexible with video calling us as we were organising a wedding out of town as well as answering any questions we had throughout the process. She worked hard to make sure our ceremony was unique to us. At the rehearsal she answered any questions we had and made us all feel relaxed and ready for the big day..The groomsmen had trouble with their button holes and your help was greatly appreciated and they looked great (thanks for coming to the rescue and helping the boys with them!)
Thank you very much for being the celebrant for our wedding
Wedding Date: January 9, 2016
Tricia was a fantastic celebrant, we were rather poorly organised when it came to our vows and ceremony, Tricia was extremely helpful with sorting our vows and putting our ceremony together to make it run smoothly and faultlessly, our guests even commented on how great she was, couldn’t recommend her more highly, she was very friendly, easy to talk to and professional
Wedding Date: November 21, 2015
Tricia was extremely helpful with the planning of the structure of our wedding. she was always on time for meetings pre-wedding and was a fantastic communicator. Working with her made our marriage experience so much less stressful. We also felt that she provided a service for our wedding that felt unique and tailored to us. Having been to several weddings that she has been celebrant for we were able to see how she well she worked with the Brides and Grooms of each wedding to help give the ceremony a piece of the individuals personality. We are so very grateful to have had her as celebrant for our wedding and recommend her to anyone who will listen
Wedding Date: October 10, 2015
Tricia was such a pleasure to have on our wedding day and in the time leading up to our big day. Everything just went so smoothly and nothing was a problem. Tricia has a strong a clear voice and did everything with a smile. I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married
Wedding Date: March 14, 2015
We live in the UK but were getting married in New Zealand so asked family for recommendations for marriage celebrants for our big day - my parents suggested Tricia. From introduction by Skype (suggested by Tricia) we felt totally at ease and relaxed. She guided as through the process and was always available for advice and guidance. On the big day she was totally fabulous and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to others.
Wedding Date: March 27, 2015
We cannot recommend Tricia highly enough. She created an absoutley beautiful ceremony in which so many people have commented on. Her professional manner with ourselves and our guests did not go un noticed. As we were organising our wedding from overseas, Tricia was extremely helpful with information on what we needed to do and always touched base with us in the lead up to the big day. She presented us with a beautiful personalised candle which we will always cherish. Her kind reassuring presence helped us feel at ease and we cannot thank her enough. We are very happy we chose Tricia to be our celebrant, she truly helped in making our day as special as it was. Thank you Tricia!
Wedding Date: April 18, 2015
Thank you Tricia for being a part of our special day. Tricia was a pleasure to work with and made planning our ceremony a fun, easy, and stress-free process. Tricia responded to all emails promptly and was so much help. Through the stress of wedding planning, Tricia was one wedding vendor we could fully rely on.
We had so many comments from guests about how lovely our ceremony was and Tricia talked us through every step, so we were fully prepared for the day.
Tricia is lovely, helpful,flexible, and professional. We could not have asked for a better celebrant, and cannot thank or recommend Tricia enough.

Planning a wedding can be a very stressful time. There is so much to think about and consider, and one of those things is the celebrant.
My husband and I wanted to have someone we could feel comfortable with and give our ceremony a personal touch. Tricia was the perfect person for that job. She helped keep us informed about what was required for our ceremony, and if we needed to know something, she was extremely helpful. Tricia remained professional, yet also had a very warm, friendly and caring vibe. She helped to keep us relaxed and ensured things ran smoothly. Our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. I would definitely recommend her to other people looking for the perfect celebrant to help make their day special.

On the day, she looked lovely, was so helpful & spoke clearly, which several guests complimented her for!
Wedding Date: February 20, 2015
Tricia was a fantastic celebrant and made sure that our dream beach wedding in New Zealand was perfect.

Thank you Tricia for being so fantastic!
Wedding Date: January 9, 2015
Organising our wedding in Dunedin, from our home in Australia seemed a little overwhelming at first until we were fortunate enough to be recommended to Tricia from family in NZ. Thank goodness Tricia knew all the answers to our questions and was able to make what could have been a very harrowing process, into a very calm and enjoyable journey. I was super appreciative of the helpful suggestions for vows and quotes as google was not helping me at all haha Tricia was always happy to help, responding to emails promptly and even inviting us to meet with her during her holiday to Australia as well as meet with us when we arrived in Dunedin 2 days before our wedding - that was perfect.
Our entire bridal party complemented Tricia on her professionalism and her ability to make all feel welcome and included during the ceremony.
Thank you again Tricia for all that you have done for us, you made our day the best it could possibly ever be!!
Wedding Date: December 17, 2014
We were lucky as a couple to find Tricia to be our celebrant in our wedding 2 weeks ago. The first time we met her she invited us to her home. She was very welcoming, approachable and very helpful. My now husband and I instantly felt connected with her and we knew she would be our celebrant. She kept us well informed and gave us great tips before the wedding. During the rehearsal we were lucky to have Tricia as she was very organised and set us straight as we were quite chaotic. On the day, we were so grateful to have Tricia with us to celebrate our wedding. We could not have asked for a much better celebrant. Thanks Tricia from the both of us
Wedding Date: December 29, 2014
Tricia, Jeeda and I wanted to thank you for your guidance and fantastic, easy-going manner at our wedding and in fact, from when we first contacted you. You really made the day go smoothly and a number of family and friends have commented on how good the ceremony was and how well it flowed. You let us take the lead but kept a watchful eye over things to ensure that everything came together to make a memorable day. Thank you so much for that.
Wedding Date: November 22, 2014
It was such a blessing to have Tricia preside over our wedding day. We had a few hit and misses with other celebrants who weren’t very organised, so when we contacted Tricia, we were extremely happy.
We were planning our wedding from our home in Perth, but were travelling to Christchurch for the wedding. Tricia made time to Skype with us and get to know us. She provided us with all the information we needed to be able to legally wed in NZ.
Tricia was also very flexible with our ceremony and gave us complete freedom to design it the way we felt best reflected us as a couple. In saying that, she emailed us numerous documents of examples for each section of the ceremony, and we were able to go through and pick which parts we liked, instead of having to write the whole thing from scratch. I found that this gave us the time to mull over everything, and really create our day together.
Tricia was punctual and flexible at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. She spoke clearly and confidently, and took the lead when little mishaps popped up - ie. people running late for the ceremony!
It was calming having someone with such experience being a part of our day, as this was the first wedding for both families. We thought Tricia was such a lovely person, and it was a shame to only have her there for just the ceremony!
We can confidently recommend Tricia to anyone who is wanting a professional, friendly and organised celebrant.
Wedding Date: October 4, 2014
After meeting quite a few different marriage celebrants we certainly knew within seconds after meeting Tricia that she was without a doubt the right choice for us to conduct our wedding ceremony!
Tricia has such a warm hearted, calming and caring nature and is very professional. We felt very much at ease and reassured with Tricia during our meeting with her - and of course we were absolutely happy with how she conducted our ceremony!
We had added a bit of humour into our ceremony and Tricia was happy to say what we wanted her to say for our day. She was such a wonderful person to be around and to communicate with - especially in my time of feeling stressed and anxious about everything!
We have no hesitation in recommending Tricia very highly to anyone considering a marriage celebrant.
Thank you Kim and Steve Kelsey
Wedding Date: October 27, 2014
Tricia was a joy to work with. We were returning to my home town of Dunedin to get married from our current home in NSW, Australia. Tricia made this very easy… meeting us in person and then finalising details via email. She provided us with capable advice to manage the legal details. She was prompt, professional and very warm. It really felt like Tricia cared about our day and in the contribution she made to it. The day itself was wonderful and there were many comments about how personal and heartfelt the ceremony was. Tricia also demonstrated fantastic collaboration with the Event Coordinator at Larnach Castle where we married. This really made things run smoothly and gave us a great sense of confidence. Thanks Tricia for helping us have such a wonderful wedding. Jude and Allan
Wedding Date: September 27, 2014
Our huge thanks to Tricia for making our day so very special. From the moment she came to meet us in our home and talked us through the ceremony and what we would need to think about, to the practicalities of getting our marriage licence, Tricia was gentle, calming and very professional.
She gave us choices with words and what type of ceremony we wanted. At all times respectfully helping us with making it our day.
We appreciated the rehearsal the day before, when Tricia again made us feel calm and prepared.
On the day Tricia was discreet in her gentle reminding of what to do next during the ceremony and was genuine throughout.
Thank you Tricia from Ally, Frank and our seven daughters.
Wedding Date: September 26, 2014

I would have no hesitations in recommending Tricia to other couples
Wedding Date: March 29, 2014
Thank you Tricia for being our celebrant. We are from europe and really had a lot of things to settle to get married in NZ.

Wedding Date: December 11, 2013

Friendly and professional and happy to recommend to any future bride and grooms!
Wedding Date: December 27, 2013
We were very delighted to have Tricia as our celebrant. Trisha is very organised, well presented, very dependable and went above and beyond her role for us leading up to and on our wedding day..
Having needed to call Trisha with very short notice, she happily helped us and made our wedding experience and enjoyable, stress less and memorable occasion.

Tricia was wonderful! Couldn’t have asked for better. She was helpful, caring yet professional, and understood the stress I was under and was a very calming influence. She also made my husband feel part of the process – as often grooms can feel like it’s all about the bride. She made planning the ceremony easy and very willing to add different aspects, such as a ring blessing. Tricia was able to project her voice in a noisy environment and was easy to hear and understand. I would fully recommend Tricia.
Wedding Date: April 19, 2014
Tricia was the perfect celebrant for our wedding. She came very highly recommended from friends and family members. She was extremely personable and made us feel as though our day was the most important day EVER, she helped us and advised us on how to make our wedding very personal an individual to us; going above and beyond to include special touches to the service, including adding in the Alice in Wonderland quotes to tie in with our theme!
We could not have asked for anyone better and I would highly recommend her to anyone getting married! Such a beautiful lady, thank you for making our day extra special x

Richard and I can not talk highly enough of Tricia. She was absolutely outstanding. Tricia made the whole process of getting married very simple and easy. We had so much fun and Tricia brought a real calming influence to our special day. Nothing was an issue and every request was received with a smile and a can do attitude. Tricia was very organised and her communication skills are top shelf. We would highly recommend Tricia to everyone, Thanks again x

If you are looking for a wonderful celebrant for your wedding, look no further! Tricia really was fantastic. She welcomed us into her home and her friendly but professional approach meant that we felt comfortable with her right away. She provided us with plenty of guidance regarding the structure of the ceremony, plus lots of options to make our secular ceremony special. She has great attention to detail and kept us on track in the lead up to the wedding. She has a great sense of humour and a lovely, calm approach, which works well on such an important day. We couldn’t recommend her more highly - thank you, Tricia, for your part in making our day so special

I highly recommend Tricia. She was great to deal with, very professional and organised. Even made sure I hadn’t forgotten any other aspects to the wedding!
Tricia came along to our rehearsal which I recommend to definitely do as it made everyone feel a lot more comfortable with what they had to do. Tricia made sure everyone was happy.
Make sure you try to book Tricia a year in advance as dates get snapped up fast and don’t feel like you are too organised as it is the most important part of your day! Celebrants can make or break the wedding!
Thanks for making our day so special,

When we asked Tricia to officiate at our wedding, she invited us into her home and we immediately felt at ease. Our wedding was a surprise event, disguised as a birthday party, and she was only too happy to go along with the surprise, and with her help, the whole event was a great celebration. We thought that Tricia was the perfect choice to officiate at our wedding, and was so helpful in giving us ideas for the ceremony. Her personal touch, experience, and warmth helped to make the whole event really special. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tricia to anyone who is looking for a marriage celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 22, 2014
Tricia made the planning of our perfect and personal ceremony so easy with resources ideas and tips.
Planning a wedding in Methven from Dunedin was so much easier knowing we had Tricia there every step of the way.
Her professional and easy going manner fit well with our personal style, we would recommend Tricia to any couple for their perfect day .
Thank you Tricia

Tricia is the perfect celebrant, as not only is she is super organised and efficient - she makes the process of deciding on your ceremony content easy and smooth - but she’s also a wonderfully kind and cheerful people person and lovely to be around. She knows weddings can be stressful for the bride and groom and she makes everyone feel at ease. shes very professional and easy to work with and very quick at responding and organising everything. With Tricia we found ourselves in such safe hands for the most important part of our wedding the part where you actually get married!
Wedding Date: February 8, 2014
Tricia was fantastic at our wedding. She is an easy person to communicate effectively with, which is obviously a great help when planning your wedding. She is very personable and great at putting (keeping) all parties at ease. She has lots of resources available for the various stages of the ceremony and you are able to mix and match these to assist in creating a personalised event. Our ceremony was outdoors and she was great in the planning stage to ensure everyone was standing in the right places and also making sure everyone was heard clearly without the hassle of microphones etc. She is a relaxed sort of character to deal with and at the same time very professional ensuring all the details are taken care of. Without hesitation we highly recommend Tricia for your wedding day!
Wedding Date: February 1, 2014
Alan and I knew straight away that we wanted Tricia to be our celebrant! Right from the first skype there wasn’t any need to contact anyone else!
For such a reasonable price (with travelling to Christchurch) we were amazed at how down to earth, knowledgeable and helpful Tricia was, couldn’t have asked for anything more. It was great to be sent all different types of ceremonies then being able to select what we wanted to go together.
Much appreciation for getting to know everyone involved, making sure both families knew what was happening, everyone’s names and generally making sure everyone was relaxed and able to enjoy the special time.
Even when tears and lumps in the throat started during the ceremony Tricia helped us get through without being blubbery messes!!
Cannot recommend Tricia enough for anyone looking for a wedding celebrant who is the complete package.

Tricia is an amazing marriage celebrant. My husband and i strongly felt that choosing our celebrant was one of the most important parts of planning our wedding as your celebrant plays such a huge role in your day. So after looking around for some time, we met with Tricia. As soon as we welcomed her into our home we knew that Tricia would be the one to marry us.
Tricia was so lovely and friendly throughout the year long lead up to our big day and was always more than happy to give us advice, welcome us into her home, and most importantly help us create the ceremony we wanted. Tricia’s communication was fantastic-which was so important to us as we were planning from Christchurch and marrying in Dunedin.
Tricia’s experience really shows, her guidance, support and knowledge was appreciated so much and along with her kind and caring personality our ceremony went off without a hitch. Looking back on our day, my husband and i agree it couldn’t have been any more perfect and we know Tricia had a big part to play in that. To any couples looking for a wedding celebrant, we can’t speak any more highly of Tricia.
Tricia- thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will always hold the beautiful memories of our wedding day close, and think of you often as we look back on our perfect ceremony.
Wedding Date: January 4, 2014
Tricia was the first celebrant we contacted, and after meeting her we knew we didn’t need to talk to any others.
She helped us plan a ceremony that suited us best, and her guidance - especially when the weather didn’t cooperate on the day - was most appreciated.
Tricia has a lovely manner, whilst always maintaining high professional standards. She was a pleasure to deal with, and we highly recommend her.
Wedding Date: December 14, 2013
When organizing a wedding from overseas you have to find a celebrant you can rely on. Tricia was that one for us and with the first email we had a good feeling with her, which didn´t let us down.
Tricia helped us with the preparation of our special day – hair dresser, flowers, legal requirements – she supported us in every way.
With her calm and warmth nature she created a ceremony which was warm and personal for us.
We thank Tricia very much for making our ceremony special and for her great support and can highly recommend her as a celebrant.
Wedding Date: January 7, 2014
We had our wedding in Dunedin but we are living in Australia so trying to plan everything from so far away is very hard. Tricia made it so easy for us and did such a wonderful job on the day. With only been able to communicate via email she preformed the ceremony exactly how we wanted. We highly recommend her.
Wedding Date: October 12, 2013
What a wonderful day we ve had - in the snow in the middle of the Southern Alps and you Tricia made this possible for us.
It couldn’t have been better - you were calm, relaxed and shared your experience with us in the preparation for “our” day. The ceremony reflected our life and what we had in mind for our big day. You made it possible! Thank You!!
- highly recommended -
Wedding Date: 11.10.2013
Tricia was an amazing celebrant at our wedding. She is an incredibly thoughtful and caring person and our wedding day was all the more special for having her be such an important part of it.
Leading up to the wedding Tricia helped us prepare a ceremony we both loved. She was very understanding of what we both wanted - which included a live skype connection to Scotland. Tricia made everyone (including the Scottish Mother in law) feel welcome and relaxed on the day.
I would highly recommend Tricia as a wedding celebrant. She made our day extra special, with her warm personality, great sense of humour and kind words.
Wedding Date: September 28, 2013
I was very pleased with the service Tricia provided for us for our wedding. She provided us with many options for our ceremony and kept in contact to make sure we had completed all the requirements leading up to our wedding day.
Tricia was very warm and welcoming of us into her home and provided an excellent service. The ceremony went smoothly thanks to her experience and calming nature. I would high recommend Tricia.
Wedding Date: July 7, 2013
What a lovely surprise Tricia was to us. As we reside in Australia, we spoke only to Tricia via telephone and email prior to our brief meeting the day before our wedding in Dunedin. We highly recommend Tricia to anyone who is looking for a warm, friendly and welcoming lady with a highly professional, while still relaxed attitude to her role as celebrant. Tricia provided us with the confidence to trust that our wedding needs would be met to our standard, and she delivered our every expectation without exception. Thank you Tricia, it was a joy to have you share with us one of the most special days in our lives. Your presence and attitude is exceptional.
Wedding Date: April 15, 2013
Ken and I found Tricia to be very professional and helpful in deciding what to include in our service. She delivered the service to a high standard and also smiled and laughed with us (rather than just reading off a piece of paper with no feeling). She provided us with ideas for various things to include in our Service but it was totally our choice.
Thanks again Tricia. We loved our choice in you.
Wedding Date: March 23, 2013
Tricia was the best celebrant we could have asked for. She was really helpful when we met up with her well before the wedding, and gave us lots of ideas for things to include in the ceremony, but with lots of flexibility so we could make it what we wanted and personalise it. We had a ‘humanist’ wedding and Tricia was great at that. At the dress rehearsal, she kept things organised and got us to practice things I wouldn’t have thought of! On the day itself she was a lovely presence, the ceremony had a lovely feeling of solemn importance and great joy. Tricia was always organised and eloquent, and we really enjoyed having her as our celebrant at our wedding. Thanks Tricia!
Wedding Date: February 23, 2013
We had Tricia highly recommended to us as a celebrant and we feel that her professionalism and sensitivity to the day surpassed our highest expectations. She has an amazing calm, confidant demeanour which we found very contagious and left us feeling great about the ceremony and even more sure about choosing her as our celebrant.
Tricia is wonderful, thank you so much for your guidance in helping create the best day of our lives, and thank you for sharing it with us.

Wedding Date: March 23, 2013
My fiancee and I are horrified by the treatment we got from Tricia. We chose her to marry us, and canceled with everyone else. After finding out my age (which IS legal), she backed out of the wedding, saying she thinks we need to get to know each other better, even though we’ve been living together for well over a year and by the time of the wedding, been together over two years. We have been through hell and back to be together and have proven our love to each other above and beyond most peoples, yet somehow that isn’t enough. We are once more judged and shamed, turned away by someone who is supposed to love love and be romantic themselves. Why else be in this line of work if you can’t understand and realize that you can’t judge every couple the same, and as long as both parties are of legal age and ability- it’s then your job to marry them without prejudices or judgement? VERY unhappy and disappointed, and now we have no one to marry us. Thanks a lot for nothing, and for making us feel like sh*t. I’d recommend not allowing this woman to take part in your special day, knowing she watches and judges so harshly.
Wedding Date: February 2013
Tricia was a wonderful celebrant at our wedding at Pukehiki church. She was a pleasure to deal with and adapted the ceremony to be exactly how we wanted it. She was a confident celebrant and highly professional. Thoroughly recommend! She was also celebrant at my sister’s wedding a few months later and did an amazing job at hers also.
Wedding Date: December 8, 2012

Thank you for being our celebrant,your warm humor and good input was greatly welcomed and you made our day that much special because you knew what you where doing and incorporated all our needs into your ceremony and we loved that you where so laid back and easy to get along with…We both felt very comfortable in your space.
I would highly recommend Tricia to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant who is experienced, approachable, calm, caring and with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Wedding Date: February 10, 2013
Trisha was very professional while being warm and easy to engage with.
We had no idea where to begin with when it came to the ceremony apart from knowing we wanted to write our own vows. Trisha was able to provide ideas and samples and also give us the order of ceremony and put our minds at ease.
We were so pleased to have Trisha as our celebrant, the ceremony went so smoothly with such a personal touch and we would recommend Trisha with the highest regard.
Wedding Date: January 19, 2013
Tricia did a fantastic job as our celebrant - she was really helpful, friendly and professional. She offered us lots of ideas and helped us tailor the ceremony to suit us.
Lots of our guests commented on what a great job she did on the day and what a nice loud clear voice she had!
I would definitely recommend Tricia to any other couples out there looking for a celebrant.
Wedding Date: February 1, 2013
It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to have Tricia as our celebrant. Everything flowed smoothly right from the very first time that we met with her. She understood our needs, and helped us to make the most precious ceremony. We could trust that on the day, it would be perfect. Thanks Tricia.
Wedding Date: February 9, 2013
What a wonderful day we had, made possible by the wonderful help of Tricia. Very well directed, and controlled, while allowing us to have the day exactly as we wanted.
Thanks so much Tricia. We were so happy to have you as part of our day. All the best for the future, and all of the weddings. I am sure everyone else will be as happy as we are.
Patrick and Marieke
Wedding Date: December 29, 2012
Thank you Tricia for being our celebrant at our wedding, your professionalism, knowledge, humour and advice where all much appreciated, our day wouldn’t have been the same with out you. We both appreciated your calmness when we had the odd hiccup before hand and flexibility to deal with a construction zone.
I would highly recommend Tricia to anyone looking for a wedding celebrant who is experienced, approachable, calm, caring and with a wealth of knowledge and experience. With her help and knowledge we were able to have a beautiful personal and fun wedding ceremony that reflected both our wishes. Thank you Tricia
