Lucky in LoveWedding Celebrant & MC West Auckland  

You’re in good hands

Hi! I'm Kimberly Sanders, Lucky in Love Wedding Celebrant. I loved my own wedding day so much I decided to become a Marriage Celebrant!

Based in Hobsonville Point I can easily travel anywhere your wedding is, plus I'm handy to all the romantic Kumeu vineyards, striking West Auckland beaches and beautiful Matakana.

I perform all kinds of wedding ceremonies for all couples; same-sex/straight, big/small, non-denominational/spiritual, alternative/traditional, on the beach/in a church...

I've been honoured to officiate for many lucky in love couples who tell me my friendly and organised approach makes the journey to their big day easy, having fun along the way.

When you choose me as your Wedding Celebrant I'll help you create a personalised ceremony to reflect your unique love story. I'll share loads of creative ideas, info and inspiration to bring your wedding day vision to life!

I’d love to be a part of your wedding day and will put as much energy and care into your marriage ceremony as I did my own. x Get in touch to set up a free 1st meeting.

Kimberly is a registered Independent Marriage Celebrant, appointed under New Zealand law. As a member of the Celebrants Association of NZ, she is committed to quality service, professional standards and ethics, helping couples of all denominations. Read more about Kimberly by clicking here.

Your Journey to your Wedding Day

Choose your Marriage Celebrant as soon as you can and book your wedding date in!  Because your wedding ceremony is the heart of your wedding day, it's sensible to get a head start with guidance from your celebrant.

In order to create your memorable marriage ceremony there are four key steps (and an extra special touch I like to add for you) on the journey and I'll make them easy and fun:

Free 1st Meeting The first step is for us to arrange a time to meet so we can all get to know each other better.
During this session you’ll get to tell me all about the wedding you want. I look forward to hearing how you met and fell in love with each other. Plus we'll talk about who your bridal party are (if you’re having one) and what is important to you.
Additionally I'll explain technical and legal aspects as well as your creative options to craft your ceremony format.
As a result you'll have a good idea if I'm the Marriage Celebrant for you.

Ceremony Format & Vows When you decide I’m the Celebrant for you (I hope so!), I'll give you a Wedding Ceremony Guidebook. This is a treasure trove of ideas, creative concepts and vows to help you decide how to represent your personalities, partnership and love for one another.

Your Love Story As your Marriage Celebrant, my aim is to make your ceremony even more special. I'll do this by presenting you with a personally crafted version of Your Love Story. I'll bring your beautiful story to life based on the things you share with me during our free 1st meeting. And you'll be able to relive your happy memories, along with your family and friends!

Ceremony Planning I'll provide you with a timeline that we'll work to. Because getting your ceremony format right for you is a work in progress we’ll allow time for edits and revisions - all in the comfort of your home via email.

Wedding Rehearsal Closer to the wedding day, we’ll agree on a time when we can get all of your bridal party in one place. We will meet at your wedding ceremony venue and have a condensed rehearsal which covers all the important things.
This rehearsal is so important as we will put your final touches on and consider any venue specific intricacies. Most importantly we’ll run through the ceremony steps so you and your bridal party are confident in their roles. This will really bring it to life for you!

The Big Day It wouldn’t be normal not to have some butterflies – so, just remember whatever happens, happens, and we work it in. People warned me my wedding day would whizz by - and it really did. So, take a deep breath, relax, fully be in the moment and enjoy every aspect of your special day! You only get one of them!
As your Marriage Celebrant I’ll be at your wedding location early. Plus I’ll guide you through the ceremony steps including the formal marriage document signing.
The fun part is making both of you as well as your family and friends feel super special!

The heart of your wedding day

Your marriage ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. During your ceremony you will make vows pledging your commitment to each other and exchange rings as a symbol of your unending love!

After you carry out these rituals I'll pronounce you Husband and Wife/Marriage Partners - and your union will be official!

Together, I'll help you create your ceremony reflecting your unique personalities. As a result, we'll bring your wedding day vision to life and your love story will shine. Whatever you want - we work it in.

Plus I’ll add some extra special personalised touches like retelling your Love Story. And the perfect moment to relive your happy memories is when you're standing at the altar, side by side, holding hands.

Wedding Budget & Fees

Wedding Budget  As a newly engaged couple it's important to have a budget and keep control of supplier fees. There are some things that are worth every cent - the most worthwhile is your Marriage Celebrant.

Marriage Celebrant Fee  Because your marriage ceremony is the heart of your wedding day, a great Celebrant, like me ; ) will set the scene for your wedding day and make it truly memorable!

I'm committed to providing you with all those little extra tips and tricks. These things will make your day seamless and help you create the ceremony you want. Plus you'll be able to put my creative background and event management expertise to good use.

When it comes to Marriage Celebrant fees, they range from $250 to $1,000. Remember, you get what you pay for (and some things can be overpriced). Just trust your instincts, you will have a good feeling when you meet the right celebrant for you.

One of my Brides told me a terrible story about her friend who booked a celebrant based on low price. Sadly, compared to my service this poor couple did not receive anywhere near the guidance I provide. I'm therefore confident I offer alot of added value other celebrants are unable to and my fees are well priced for all that you get... So, if you are a couple who value great service and lots of ideas please get in touch to arrange a free 1st meeting.

Location Specific Fees Fees are based on the different location areas I perform ceremonies in to make it fair and cost-effective. A deposit will be required to secure your wedding date. Please get in touch and I'll confirm a fee specific to your wedding.

West Auckland, North Shore, Rodney, CBD
The fee is all inclusive of travel to and from your rehearsal and wedding within the Auckland region including Waitakeres, West Coast Beaches, Kumeu vineyard venues and as far north as Orewa.

Waiheke Island
Due to the ferry travel involved, couples will need to supply return ferry tickets and transport to and from Matiatia wharf for both the rehearsal and wedding day.

Matakana, East Auckland, South Auckland
Including Karaka, Waiuku and the Bombays. Due to extra travel time involved for the rehearsal and your big day the fee is a little bit extra.

Additionally, you'll get Ceremony Planning and your Love Story handcrafted especially for you. Plus a Wedding Rehearsal and me as Officiant on your Big Day... and these extras:
