Celebrant Anna officiates weddings anywhere in Canterbury – including south, mid, north and beyond! She’s happy to travel anywhere in Aotearoa for ceremonies!

Congrats – you’re getting married! Anna is an experienced celebrant who’s not bound to rules or traditions. She works with you to design a ceremony that’s perfectly you – fun and relaxed, short and sweet, or all the bells and whistles! As a Celebrants Aotearoa New Zealand (CANZ) member, you’re assured she’s professional and committed. Get in touch with Anna to chat about your big day!

Tell us about yourself? It’s a special privilege to be a celebrant and to be part of a wedding – the intimacy of shared vows, lifelong promises and the emotion! In my day job as a people leader, I’m always making sure things get done and balancing that with what’s best for my team; this lends really well to my work as a celebrant!

I’m a member of the CANZ which gives me great opportunities to learn and complete professional development, and I’m on the Canterbury committee. I have a penchant for ridiculous handbags (I have waaay too many!) and I love to MC events such as the Matariki Night Market and Vintage Fest.

Tell us about your style? I’m here for the love! I’m a warm and relaxed human being who is open and inclusive.

Best part of any ceremony for you? Hands down, when you see one another as you’re coming up the aisle!

Favourite things? 100% travel – I love experiencing other cultures and authentic travel experiences (not just the touristy parts); but also checking out Aotearoa. Hubby and I have recently explored the Coromandel, Te Anau, Milford Sounds and my local fave is Hanmer Springs. I’m also a massive foodie – especially dumplings, xiao long bao, bun cha and pho!
