Your day to remember...
A little about myself.
Hi, I'm Judith. I am a Queenstown-based Wedding Celebrant who has been working with newlyweds over the past 10 years. Assisting you in creating a celebration that is unique and tailored to you as a couple, is my passion.
Every ceremony I put together is unique and tailored to the couple. I take the time to get to know you both to ensure that together, we capture your personalities and love in the ceremony.
I understand that the ceremony is an important part of your wedding day and it is crucial that you feel your celebrant is the right person for you both before committing to your choice of celebrant. This is why I offer a free of charge initial meeting with all of my couples. The idea of this meeting is for you to decide whether or not you would like me to officiate on your wedding day.
Email & Telephone Consultations.
I can email you examples of vows, readings and full ceremonies. This can give you an idea of the structure of the service. This is where you can create a ceremony that you can personalise – or I am more than happy to help you write your complete ceremony and tailor it to your requirements. There is no limit to these consultations as it is important to get exactly what you want in your ceremony.
This is held at the wedding venue sometime during the week before the wedding, usually the day before. It is ideal to have the full bridal party present and anyone else who is involved, ie parents and those doing any readings, but not absolutely necessary.
I will arrive at the venue at least 30 minutes before the ceremony begins with my own audio equipment if required.
This is presented to you both once the signing of the Copy of Particulars of Marriage has been completed.
I can also assist in obtaining your Marriage Certificate (and Apostille if required) from Births, Deaths & Marriages.
