New Zealand is a beautiful country, and I am passionate about my corner of the world. I can, therefore, suggest some beautiful local locations for your wedding if you need some advice.
I have enjoyed serving on several community art groups both here in NZ and overseas. Through these community roles and my previous roles in customer service, I have become a confident public speaker as well developed the ability to attend to the important details.
I have great warmth, empathy, creativity and professionalism.

Testimonials from Clients
Thank you for being our celebrant and making our wedding day one to truly remember.
For anyone who may be scouting your website for a capable and adaptable celebrant ( a must-have for a winter wedding, in my opinion) please set up a meeting. It was obvious right from the start that you truly cared about our day, and we really appreciate it!

We can’t thank Diane enough !
Thanks again Diane, and hopefully we meet again sometime in the future.
Charlotte and Todd
We could not have asked for a better Celebrant than Diane.
On further searching, we found Diane, who informed us she could perform a ceremony on Saturday, in two days hence. Furthermore, she was able to provide the required two witnesses and gave us suggestions of venues where the wedding could be held. Both were at the top of my list gleaned from personal web searches and provided options should the weather turn ugly.
Words cannot express how thrilled we were with Diane’s services. She was kind, very interested in our personal story, and extremely patient as I set up live streaming of the occasion via cell phone to my elderly mother on the other side of the world. Furthermore, her daughter who acted as one of the witnesses used my camera gear to record the occasion with superlative results. We were touched and could not have asked for a better Celebrant than Diane.

Lots of love, Ella and Morgan xx
Humour, tenderness and love
Diane went the extra mile to ensure the ceremony was suited to us personally and included us in each and every step. She took on all our wishes and turned them into a reality that flowed wonderfully with her personal flair for creating beautifully written ceremonies. Humour, tenderness and love were all portrayed perfectly when the ceremony was read on the day and we became husband and wife. An amazing talented celebrant that is 100% deserving of many thanks and praise for her outstanding professionalism and easily liked personality.
Diane, thank you very much for helping us create memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

We would definitely recommend you to other couples planning their Weddings.

Very happy with your professional service
Fili and I would like to thank you for being part of our surprise Wedding on the 1st of January at Mudbrick Vineyard, Waiheke Island.
Who knew that planning a Wedding in 3 weeks before the big day was going to be such a breeze ! We were very lucky that you were able to come out of the first day of the year, and orchestrate such a beautiful ceremony that felt very personal and calming.
Thank you for helping us to work out all the logistics of the big surprise ! It seemed like a big ask with the given time frame, but we managed to pull it off , with your help.
Everyone that attended were very happy with your professional service and company.
Dasha and Fili

We are especially grateful for your preparation and planning in such short notice. It was great that you had a range of readings, ceremonies etc for us to read through, and then allow us to make all of our own choices. You personalised the day to suit us perfectly.
Thank you for also recommending our photographer !
You have a nice gentle manner, were easy to work with and our friends and family also commented on how lovely you were.
Once again we would like to thank you personally for all your efforts, and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
