Congratulations if you have recently become engaged and are looking for a celebrant!  What an exciting time you have ahead.

Your wedding really does need to be the ‘time of your life’; ' just the way you want it.'   With your help, I can craft and deliver a ceremony, which reflects your own personalities,  your relationship and your dreams for this special day, while incorporating the legal requirements of Marriage and Civil Union in New Zealand.

Weddings & Civil Unions 

You can be assured that I am reliable, creative, sincere, warm, funny and totally there for you!  What more could you ask for?


There are many beautiful and romantic spots for your wedding in the Nelson/Tasman region, from vineyards to National Parks, from forests to golden beaches.   If this does not suit, I am more than happy to discuss travelling to other parts of New Zealand to officiate at your wedding.  

Contact me when you are ready to discuss your requirements for your  'Moment to Treasure'.

If you are unsure of exactly what you want, I can help you to discover this through our meetings.  Together we can figure out how you want your wedding to look and feel so that, on the day, you have nothing else to worry about than to turn up looking stunning and ready to thoroughly enjoy yourselves.

"In March 2020 my partner and I stayed 4 nights at this most delightful bed and breakfast in the Tasman district. What we had really been looking for was a marriage celebrant in the area and we saw this place advertised on the same website. For us, this was a perfect solution as we don’t live in the area. A celebrant AND accommodation all in the one place. PLUS we learnt we could have our small wedding in their garden. A perfect package.
Suzie and Yvonne run this lovely establishment. Suzie is the celebrant and Yvonne, who has skills a  professional chef would envy, does the most delicious hors d’oeuvres.
The B&B is quite self-contained with a bedroom, living area and bathroom. Suzie and Yvonne live upstairs and are very respectful of their guests’ privacy. They provide all the ingredients for a substantial and delicious breakfast which you prepare yourself at your leisure. The place is well equipped and you could cook full meals if you really wanted! The bed is very comfortable. Hot water is good, and it is very clean and fresh. Wifi is also no problem. Nothing is too much trouble for these two lovely ladies.
We held our wedding in their delightful garden, which was so colourful at the end of summer. Suzie has just the right personality for a celebrant – caring, genuine, respectful and bubbly. The ceremony was perfect – we wrote our own vows, Suzie had the right words to say and guided us through the protocols that were required. Yvonne had suggested we might like nibbles after the ceremony and we thought this an excellent idea and were absolutely delighted with what she produced, which included delicacies for a dairy free guest and a vegetarian. We invited them both to join us in the gathering post ceremony and we all enjoyed their company.
We can’t recommend their B&B and celebrant services highly enough. And the 2 together make a fantastic package. You won’t regret it."  Linnea and Tony

"Suzie was an amazing celebrant for our wedding, she made sure to make it fun and quirky, and so it suited our style.  She went above and beyond with everything we needed and was always there to answer every question we had no matter how silly.  She was honestly the best and I would definitely recommend her to for your wedding if you want something fun, quirky and personal all at the same time.  She makes the day about you, and your partner.  She’s honestly the best and we are so beyond happy we picked her, to help with our special day, she was a lifesaver when it came to writing the vows, and was always there to give a hand.  She made our wedding and we couldn’t be more thankful for her and all her help."  Zoe and Michael

“We couldn't fault Suzie from the moment we first contacted her to the service itself.  She has a straight-forward, calm approach.  In fact, she puts you at ease from the get go.  She felt like an old friend as opposed to a stranger.  We would highly recommend Suzie and can reassure you that using her professional service will ensure a stressfree event."  5 star  M & R

“Suzie is a perfectionist with a beautiful smile and a warm heart.  People matter to Suzie and nothing could be more obvious than this when you consider the care and meticulous attention she puts into preparing a perfect day for the happy couple.  The result is a personalised ceremony which reflects who the newly weds truly are as individuals and as a couple.  No two ‘Suzie’ weddings could ever be the same.  Suzie treats everyone with respect, patience and above all; kindness.  She is skilled at listening to what is really being said by reading between the lines and somehow manages to transfer this information into creating a magical and memorable event.  My daughter and son-in-law’s wedding was fabulous and we are all extremely grateful to Suzie for the love, care and attention she put into making this day special for all of us.”    Sue A (Mother of the Bride) 
"We couldn’t have chosen anyone better to have with us on our special day, especially as Suzie was one of my Beauty Therapy tutors so it made it a bit more personal.  Suzie is the most caring person and really put her heart into our wedding. Thank you so much for creating a beautiful, romantic but still humorous ceremony.  Suzie made the entire process easy for us. Once again thank you so much Suzie xx"    Georgina M (Bride)
