As a lifelong member of the LGBTQ community, I was delighted in 2013 that we were finally able to legally marry. Since then, a number of my friends have married and I became aware that there are not many LGBTQ celebrants so I trained as a celebrant to cater for my community. However, I am available as a celebrant for anyone who has found 'the one' and is ready to make a lifelong commitment to that love.
My background is in teaching and psychology. I have a BA in Education, an Honours Psychology degree, and I'm currently studying part-time towards a Masters in Psychology. I have completed marriage celebrancy training at the Celebrants Training College, I am a registered celebrant and a member of CANZ (Celebrants Association of NZ). I am a confident public speaker, personable, and passionate about celebrating love and commitment.
I have been with my partner Deb for 31 years. Our plan is to finally marry when time and funds allow! We have two wonderful adult children, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, and 3 sheep. I am a slightly obsessed gardener - the more flowers the better - and I love cooking, especially desserts. I am a bookworm who loves nothing more than to have a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other! I look forward to meeting you, learning more about your dreams for your big day, and helping you make those dreams a reality.
