speaking life into your celebration



In a wedding celebration it’s the small details that really matter. A few words strung together and delivered with magnificence can capture the character of a couple and strike a chord with all that are present. Wedding ceremonies are so full of love, smiles, laughter and happy tears. The absolute best things in life. It’s my pleasure to be a part of this and creating an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

A wedding celebrant and MC are such a vital part of any wedding.  I knew we could put all our trust into Jason to really deliver on the day.  Jason listened to our needs and took all the stress out so we could enjoy ourselves.  We had so much positive feedback about him after our wedding and could not recommend him enough.

The feedback we received from family and friends following the wedding was nothing short of amazing, Before our entrance into the room for the reception dinner, we could hear the room was in stitches from Jase ‘warming the crowd’. The venue owner passed on a special mention to me on the night for choosing such a wonderful person to help us celebrate our wedding.

It was about ten years ago, through the requests of friends and family, that I first became involved in weddings. Through my other work, I am no stranger to public speaking and warming crowds. For this reason I’ve had the pleasure of MCing many weddings. It was not until my own wedding day in February 2017 that I realised I could combine my passion for love in general and speaking skills, in order to help other couples officiate their marriage. As a registered NZ marriage celebrant I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to play a role in these incredibly special and unforgettable unions.

I know from my own experience how important it is to make your wedding your own. The beauty of today’s marriage ceremonies is that there is very little you have to do to make it legal. Just a few lines I have to say, everything else is completely up to the loved up couple! Whether it’s a high energy ceremony, or something small and relaxed that you’re after, both ways are perfectly fine and equally special. I’m never bound by tradition, and will always try to put the couple’s own stamp on everything I do for them. As a celebrant my ultimate goal is to do my absolute best to facilitate the best day of your lives.
