“I am a relaxed, friendly, organised Marriage Celebrant, specialising in Warm, Relaxed, Personal and Enjoyable Weddng Ceremonies”
It’s not every day you get married so it is understandable if you are not sure of where to start and what to include, that’s where I come in.

Whatever you have in mind, stylish, sophisticated, informal or casual, whether performed in front of a small intimate group or a venue bulging with family and friends, you will be in good hands. We’ll rehearse at your venue and I’ll be right there to guide you every ste
So what’s the next step from here?
Arrange to meet me in person for an obligation free chat so you can assure yourself that I am the celebrant for you. From there we’ll begin to work together to create something really special for your wedding day.
I look forward to meeting you!
“Suzanne supported us all the way. She was always positive and she has a great sense of humour, she made us laugh – great for reducing nerves! My friends commented on our lovely ceremony and how great our celebrant was.”
“Thank you so much for being a part of our special day - you did an amazing job! To tell you the truth, nether of us were much looking forward to the ceremony because of our nerves but you put as at ease and we both surprised ourselves and enjoyed it!!”
“Once again thank you so much for such a fantastic ceremony. We cannot thank you enough for making it so wonderful. Everybody is still talking about it.”
My wife and I can’t recommend Suzanne enough! She is very friendly and very knowledgable.
My wife and I weren’t sure what to expect for our ceremony but we put our trust in Suzanne. She gave us a questionnaire that we each filled out and she transformed our answers into the most wonderful ceremony script.
It was at that point that we know our wedding was going to be perfect.
Thank you Suzanne for making our big day perfect.

I would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne as a wedding celebrant. Her guidance was invaluable and her professionalism, experience and relaxed but precise nature meant we had a fantastic experience both during the planning process and on the day. Highly recommend.

Suzanne was fantastic, both leading up to the wedding and on the day. Suzanne was quick to respond to any questions we had regarding the process, she was extremely helpful at the rehearsal with explaining the details of the ceremony and very patient with our six year old ring bearer. On the day itself, everything went as planned and we had lots of positive comments about Suzanne and how great the ceremony was. Thanks so much Suzanne!

Suzzane did a fabulous job as our celebrant and made us feel so comfortable throughout the process. She went the extra mile to keep us informed of all the forms we needed and sent through information as we required it.
We worked together to build the outline of the ceremony and she took on board our comments and made suggestions so that we could make it our own.
She made time to rehearse before the wedding, which was greatly appreciated as we had no idea what to expect. She worked with us to ensure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted.
We cannot thank her enough for making our day so special. We highly recommend Suzanne she is down to earth, easy to work with and will go out of her way to ensure your wedding ceremony is a success!

We had the pleasure of first meeting Suzanne when she married my sister and her husband a couple of years ago and we knew when our time came, she would be the celebrant for us!
Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, very “us” and we could not have achieved that without Suzanne. She was great to deal with throughout; putting us both at ease and helping us through the process without adding any pressure during what was a bit of a stressful time leading up to the wedding We really appreciated how she understood what was important to us and what we wanted to achieve, and managed to create a beautiful ceremony that ticked all the boxes!
Our guests enjoyed our ceremony as much as we did, with one of our friends sending a message through after the wedding which said they “...were so impressed with the ceremony especially. It was so heartfelt and real and was very special to witness…”.
Highly recommended! Thank you, Suzanne

where do I start ?
I would highly recommend Suzanne to be your celebrant at your wedding , given we only had a week to prepare our short noticed wedding and it was so difficult to find a celebrant that met our needs and wasn’t making our wedding any more stressed , then we came across Suzanne who took not only a load off our shoulders with starting pack , equipment etc but she’s a real lovely person in general who made our preparation’s super relaxed , she’s real comfortable to talk to and plan with. she responded to our emails and txt’s promptly and she even made the effort of dressing in the color theme we had. She was very open and very helpful and gave us many options for our vows and how we wanted them done .. Anyone I know getting married i have suggested her to them already.
Thank you so much Suzanne for making our day extra special and relaxed , Also for all your support and help. And a huge Thank you for being our celebrant with only 3 days notice ..

We cannot thank Suzanne enough for an absolutely fabulous day.
From our very first contact we felt we had chosen the perfect celebrant for us.
I was having to arrange my wedding from the Netherlands, (to have in NZ), and Suzanne took a load off my mind by helping with all of the legal bits ‘n bobs, right through to last minute meetings to arrange our ceremony.
I was becoming quite overwhelmed with it all, but Suzanne was able to take away all the stress and steer us in the right direction for the type of service and reading that would be best for us.
I think what really sets Suzanne apart is her ability to listen to us as a couple. She understood us, and really focused on what we hold dear in our relationship and was then able to create a beautiful, personal & touching ceremony. (without it being over the top gushy!)
Thank you so much Suzanne for being a part of our special day, you’re forever in our hearts as one of our dearest friends.

After doing a lot of research on celebrants in the Auckland region we happened on Suzanne and we’ve only been so happy and so lucky to find her. From the initial consultation to on the day, Suzanne has been utterly amazing. We knew she was the one the moment she got our jokes:) Laughter plays a huge roll in our lives and she got that. She made the whole process so easy and provided so many options and all the paperwork, it was a no brainer. She is so lovely and understanding and calms you right down, what an awesomely lovely lady to deal with and to have as part of our celebration.
Thank you once again Suzanne, the day would not have been the same if you weren’t there, from the run through to the pep talk

Where do I start?
Ronald and I were quite confused at the beginning. Obviously it was our first time getting married and had no idea what to expect from the celebrant and the ceremony.
Suzanne was very patience and explained all details very clearly. She guided us from the very beginning, step by step. Suzanne helped us with choosing the right vows, tailor the ceremony to suit our liking, choosing poems, and much much more.
With Suzanne by our side, made Ronald and I rest assured. We knew we had someone reliable, someone who knew what they were doing and someone who will run the ceremony smoothly.
Thank you Suzanne for sharing our special moment and everything you have helped us with. We really appreciate your guide throughout the planning of our wedding!

Suzanne was a perfect celebrant for us. She was friendly, relaxed and very knowledgeable. She answered emails incredibly quickly, which we really appreciated. Her “scary resource pack” has everything you need to create the perfect ceremony. We had a good idea of what we wanted for our ceremony, and using her guidelines, we were able to write the ceremony completely by ourselves. Suzanne gave us a couple of suggestions, but didn’t force anything on us and was happy to sit back and let us do exactly as we wanted.
Overall, Suzanne was a wonderful celebrant - organised, on time, knowledgeable and so friendly. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
Wedding Date: April 4, 2015
I can’t speak highly enough of Suzanne. We interviewed a number of celebrants and she just stood out as being knowlegable, personable, friendly and relaxed. We loved working with her, there were lots of laughs and the ceremony was just exactly what we wanted, it was us to a tee!!
We had a wonderful day, Suzanne not only kept the guys calm but met me at the car to say hello and let me know to take my time.
Our guests paid so many compliments about our ceremony, they felt engaged and we made to feel part of our special day. Suzanne looked great too! She made a real effort to wear a colour that would tie in with our scheme.
If you are looking for a celebrant, look know further. There are a real mixture of experience and personalities out there and I can say from experience that the good ones are few and far between. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found an exceptional one.

Suzanne was a fantastic celebrant, we really appreciated the fact that she gave us all the information that we needed to write our vows and organise our marriage certificate. She was professional, friendly and approachable and we would definitely recommend her to those needing a celebrant.
One thing that I would suggest to anyone getting married is to run through pronunications of names/places that might be a bit tricky to pronounce with the celebrant - and this goes for any celebrant, not just Suzanne. This is by no means a criticism of Suzanne as it would have happened with anyone, but it is something that neither myself nor my husband thought of, and there were a few names that were pronounced a bit alternatively. That aside, we loved having Suzanne as our celebrant and were really glad that she could witness the traditional Hindu ceremony that preceded the civil ceremony!
Wedding Date: April 25, 2015
We were very glad that Suzanne helped us to make the ceremony successful.. She gave us a lot advice and information and was always patient to listen to us and our requests.
Wedding Date: April 26, 2015
Suzanne is fantastic! First of all my Husband and I were so impressed with how fast Suzanne replies to emails, which is extremely important when planning a wedding. All communication with Suzanne is super friendly and she has lots of helpful advice and resources.
Our ceremony was perfect, we wanted something more casual and fun, something that not only we would enjoy, but also our guests would too, and Suzanne really got our vibe. She really knows how to take your ideas and incorporate them into something awesome, we got laughs throughout the ceremony - which is what we hoped for, and lots of our guests said it was rad too. We had a steampunk theme for our wedding, and Suzanne was happy to dress up, and she rocked it.
If someone asked me to recommend a celebrate, hands down I’m recommending Suzanne.
Wedding Date: February 20, 2015
Suzanne was so supportive and helpful to us from the get go, we cant recommend her enough! Even my usually reserved and quiet fiance felt immediately at ease at our first meeting. She is thoroughly professional, from her extensive ‘ceremony resource pack” to her calming presence. The best thing for a bride planning her wedding, and on the day itself too!
The ceremony was beautiful, and we keep receiving comments on how personal it felt.
Thank you so much for making our day so lovely!

Words can not describe how absolutely AMAZING Suzanne is. My husband and I had no idea what to expect from our ceremony but after meeting with Suzanne we were confident our ceremony was going to be perfect for US.
The amount of information and resources we received from Suzanne really put our mind at ease. We were presented with so many options about how our day could be run. Having this newfound knowledge the three of us sat down and crafted a beautiful personal and oh so special ceremony. We couldn’t ask for more
Suzanne over this process was an delight to deal with- sharing a few laughs along the way. No change was too big and too small. She gave her knowledgable opinion where needed but we felt we had all the control over how our special day would run.
For anyone reading this review I can assure you that you do not need to look any further!!! I can not recommend Suzanne enough. My day was absolutely perfect and Im sure yours will be too.
Wedding Date: February 28, 2015
Suzanne was very helpful and informative, allowing us to achieve a casual and fun ceremony. She was very easy going, supportive of our ideas, and kept things stress-free even with our short time frame.
Thank you Suzanne, we had a wonderful day that ran smoothly thanks to your help.

Suzanne had been recommended by another wedding celebrant who was unavailable for our chosen wedding date. Having had Suzanne officiate our wedding; there are two points I would like to share:
1) I have a greater appreciation for the value wedding celebrants play in making a wedding ceremony a really special occasion.
- Suzanne made the wedding ceremony planning process less stressful with her resource-pack and equipment, more personal by getting to know my wife and I and integrating this into the proceedings, and just that extra bit more enjoyable by coming across as a lovely person to work with and be around. Having discussed with friends and family how we worked with our Suzanne leading up to wedding; it became clear how fortunate we were to have had Suzanne for the day.
2) The biggest compliment I have to offer Suzanne (who deserves alot!) is that we had a number of friends and family tell us after the wedding how she came across as not just friendly and professional. but also as somebody with a great sense of humour.
Thank you once again for making our wedding such a memorable occasion; we were so lucky to have someone as caring, attentive, and resourceful, as you share this celebration with us.
