Fiona - your celebrant
Becoming an independent celebrant was a wonderful and natural addition to my career so far. I have enjoyed over 30 years in communications and public relations which has developed my skills in working with people from every area of life through to directing events, large and intimate, as well as sharing my passion for life with others as a public speaker both in New Zealand and internationally.
However the most important reason for me was to support people in making the most of their important celebrations in life and to create memories with a passion that keeps them alive and remembered forever.
In our busy lives, it's often too easy to be rushed and forget to live and love in the moment. My role is to support you to take the stress out of your celebration and help you enjoy whatever occasion is important to you.
In 2001, my husband, daughters and I moved to New Zealand from our native Scotland. We saw Marlborough as our forever place to live, but proceeded to spend the next 14 years in Auckland expanding our careers.
In 2015, we finally made the move, as our daughters are now happy, healthy and living their amazingly full lives in Auckland, Christchurch and Marlborough. We continue to work throughout NZ and beyond but we have committed to being part of this wonderful community.
We are now living the "good life" in Marlborough with our labradoodles and assorted other creatures.. We are blessed with beauty and bounty.
Marlborough is beautiful - to live and to marry in. It's the way you imagine New Zealand to be and I recommend it to all.
I am a registered Independent Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant, and member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand as well as being a Justice of the Peace.
You can be sure that I will officiate your wedding ceremony with professionalism.
It is an honour to be part of some of the most poignant and moving celebrations in people's lives. As a Celebrant, I am privileged to see people often at their most emotional and vulnerable as they face major life changing events.
I see my role as your supporter and assister, providing guidance, experience and friendship to help you make the right decisions that suit you.
I also bring smiles, warmth and an ever watchful attention to detail.
Choose me to help you make it your day.
