Celebrant

Congrats on your engagement!

Remember that one when Joey got ordained via the internet to marry Monica and Chandler.... well I have decided to do the same. Get in touch through my enquiry form below to find out more about the process.

I am open to all couples. I am based in Canterbury but happy to travel around New Zealand for ceremonies. I have nearly officiated 40 weddings over the last three years.

I am all for the wedding day being exactly what the couple envisage, and I will do whatever I can to make the ceremony run smoothly, be special and represent the couple. I am can perform a very traditional wedding or we can mix it up and make it suit you!

I am happy to be there for the entire wedding and do any odd jobs that come up. For example; finding lost guests, calling out the photo order, reading out a speech when someone gets stage fright, coordinating with the vendors, or running to the shop to get a snack for the bride. I am happy to travel and I won't wear a silly hat or talk about myself for ages. I will even let you choose from my instagram what dress I will wear!

Master of Ceremonies

 
 

 I am happy to do a double act as a celebrant and Master of Ceremonies (MC),  if you aren't convinced creepy Uncle Jim would do a good job. Just let me know if the enquiry form if you want to discuss MC duties.

Wedding Day Coordinator

I can also help with on the day coordination. If you are worried about everything going smoothly but don’t want a full on wedding planner I can help as a coordinator. Just let me know if the enquiry form if you want more information on that.

I am flexible in how we work together, normally I would have a least one meeting with the couple a few months out from the wedding. This is to make sure I am a good fit, hear your story and get the rundown of the big day plans. I can help you with the legal stuff, coordinate the rehearsal and run the ceremony of course.

 
 

Testimonials

 
 

TOBY & KIRSTY

“Hannah did a fantastic job as our celebrant, it was clear from the rehearsal that Hannah knew what she was doing and did a great job to  ensure we were as relaxed as we could be going into the big day.

Hannah did a great job on the day even collecting last minute items forgotten from town Hannah! Hannah coordinated well with our caterer and band to make sure all the little things were taken care of. Our ceremony was relaxed and Hannah did a great job to ensure we both swallowed our nerves and enjoyed the occasion. We would recommend Hannah to everyone who is looking for a great celebrant to help with the whole day!”

OLIVIA & JONNY

"Hannah was not only our celebrant on our wedding day but also took on the role to help the reception run smoothly by working alongside our caterers and photographer. Hannah happily took on the role to be our DJ and ensured the whole evening was a success. 
Hannah was so supportive and helpful leading up to the wedding day as she organised a rehearsal which helped to calm the nerves!
Jonny and I would both highly recommend Hannah for any couple looking for a fun, caring and supportive celebrant who cares about what you want and brings a smile and professionalism to her role in your wedding day, and is willing to go above and beyond. thank you Hannah!"

ANNALISE & JASON

"Hannah was a great celebrant from start to finish. She was very professional and was happy to help with anything we needed, including picking up our cakes. Nothing was a problem for Hannah and she went along with any decision we made. Hannah is young, fresh and friendly, which made it so easy for us to make the decision to have her as our celebrant. She is an excellent speaker and has a lot of experience with weddings as an MC and celebrant. 
Do not hesitate to book Hannah for your wedding, get in quick."

ASH & PHIL

“Coming from the U.S., I was apprehensive about planning an elopement in New Zealand. Hannah was so helpful from beginning to end. She wrote a custom ceremony for us and offered help all along the way. She ironed out all the official paperwork details and was also super sweet even though we were an hour late to our ceremony site! I cannot speak highly enough of Hannah. She is truly a wonderful celebrant!”

EMMA & DEREK

"When my husband and I first sat down to organise our wedding we wanted our ceremony to be relaxed, a bit of fun, and ultimately reflect us as a couple. Choosing Hannah as our celebrant was one of the best decisions we made. Throughout the build up she was organised and kept me on track with all the paper work. The day of our wedding Hannah went above and beyond, from helping the groomsman pin their flowers, to assisting with final touches around the farm. If you're looking for a classy, sophisticated and all round amazing person, Hannah is definitely your lady".
