Choosing the right celebrant for your wedding day is very important, and my job is to create a memorable, meaningful and unique event, just for you.

Kia Ora, hello and welcome to all you beautiful brides and grooms to be, my name is Wilo (Wilhelmina), and I live on the Hibiscus Coast. I perform weddings, vow renewals, funerals, and baby naming ceremonies from North Shore to as far as Whangarei.

I am an approved Independent Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant, approved to perform registry marriage ceremonies. I am proud to be registered with CANZ the (Celebrants Association of New Zealand), and have a commitment to quality, carrying out professional services with high standards and ethics. CANZ is New Zealand’s national professional association for celebrants, who support celebrants, who in turn, enrich New Zealand society. Any celebrant that is CANZ registered shows dedication to upskilling and ongoing professional help and support from more experienced celebrants in the association, as we train and network with the best. I have attended the Auckland celebrant’s school to make sure I have the best expertise to ensure I create a relaxed, fun ceremony, helping you with your wedding day and thereafter. This means being with you all the way from the time you choose me to be your celebrant to the end of the ceremony and after if you need me. I am originally from UK and have lived in New Zealand for 22 years.

It is your day and whatever you have in mind for your wedding ceremony I will be sensitive to your values, needs and wishes to help you create the vows that you feel comfortable with. Some couples find this a very nervous time, and my goal is to bring a warm, approachable and friendly atmosphere so I can guide you through your ceremony reflecting the love you share as a couple, and also bring some humor warmth and hopefully some fun to make it an amazing day for everyone.

My Services include: Registry and civil union marriages, including renewal of wedding vows and same sex marriages. I also provide baby naming ceremonies, funerals, and spreading of Ashes for both humans and your beloved pets.

I look forward to working with you and let’s make your wedding day awesome together!
