How to choose the right Celebrant

Kimberly Sanders Lucky in Love Marriage Celebrant Auckland


Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life – and the official start of your exciting future together. It’s important you choose a Marriage Celebrant who puts you at ease and offers a high level of care, positive energy and lots of ideas to suit your personalities.

I just tied the knot myself recently and loved every aspect so much I wanted to do it all over again! (Except for someone else, as an Auckland Marriage Celebrant!) And because of my own recent wedding I know how crucial finding the right Celebrant is – they can make or break the atmosphere.

When my Husband and I were choosing our Celebrant the most important thing for us was getting the right fit with our personalities – someone professional, yet relaxed enough to make our day fun and memorable.

Ways to find your Celebrant
Word of mouth recommendations are great and we found our Auckland Marriage Celebrant online. New Zealand Weddings magazine is a great source too.

Book in plenty of time
Like photographers and venues, Auckland Marriage Celebrants get booked out up to a year in advance. Give yourself as much time before the big day as possible to find the Celebrant who is right for you.

Meet your Celebrant
A good Celebrant will offer you an initial obligation-free consultation and to make sure whoever you choose is going to represent your partnership and love for each other well. You will just ‘know’ when you find the right Celebrant, like me and my husband did.

Make sure you check
Make sure your Celebrant is registered with the Department of Internal Affairs. And a member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand like I am. Do your research on who they are and what their customer reviews say about them.

How they will help you
Your Marriage Celebrant should give you lots of options and ideas to formulate your welcome, vows, readings and legal aspects. They will add lots of value when it comes to the fine details and guide you through the process so you get the wedding ceremony you imagined. You’ll may have a lot of questions and a good celebrant will make themselves available to answer these and reassure you throughout the journey to your big day.

Obviously I would love to be your Celebrant. Click here to read how I can help you.
