Marriage is a journey that starts long before a wedding.But the wedding is an important maker and day of celebration.
Your choice to become married signals to the world that you are a permanent couple.
It is also a chance to celebrate your individual personalities and strengths as a unit.
It would be my honour to be part of that celebration.
My wife and I were married last century on a sunny Wellington day. Since then I have spent many, many, years assisting with other people’s weddings as a caterer, driver, best man, and general dog’s body.
In 2017 I took the next step and started legally officiating weddings.
Together we develop the theme of your day, craft words that meet your tastes, and build a ceremony based on your personalities and shared desires.
