Celebrant Court officiates weddings throughout Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and beyond.

With Court, it’ll feel like a friend is marrying you. She’ll pour her heart into creating a one-of-a-kind ceremony filled with warmth, love and happiness. A ceremony that’ll feel like you two, and that’ll have your loved ones saying, “That was so them”. Sound like you? Pop an email to Court, then pop some bubbles for you!

Tell us about yourself? Hello you two! When a close friend asked if I would become a celebrant and marry her and her fiancée, there was no way I wasn’t going to say yes… with a few happy tears. And now, I get to create ceremonies for people like you two – meaningful, engaging, warm and most importantly, authentically you.

More than anything, I want you to wake up on your wedding day knowing that I’ve got it all covered. That together, we’ve created a ceremony that couldn’t be more you. That I’ll take care of the bits and pieces that pop up, so you don’t have to. And that I’ll save a seat for Grandma. Plus, I’ll always make sure to slide right into your colour scheme with my outfit (yes, you can choose it!).

When my celebrant hat isn’t on, I get to help create homes that promote health and happiness in both the people that live in them, and in the environment. Right?! I love it. I am currently growing my skills as a celebrant and am excited to put all my learnings and knowledge into creating more bespoke and meaningful ceremonies (with a bit of light-heartedness and warmth thrown in). My go-to song request would have to be Give It Up by KC & The Sunshine Band. So, if you want me to stick around and show you my dance moves, play this and I’m yours.

Tell us about your style? As a celebrant, I would describe myself as being warm and relaxed. I want you to feel like a friend is marrying you – someone who you trust, and who brings just the right balance of happiness, love and light-heartedness to your ceremony.

Best part of any ceremony for you? The best part of the ceremony for me is when you two see each other. That pure happiness – the “I can’t believe this is happening” moment. The start of the rest of your lives together. It’s so special. Or if you have your dog as your ring bearer, that might just beat it.

Favourite things? I love (okay, am slightly obsessed with) my dog, am here for a couple of glasses of red over a home cooked meal and will always say yes to going away for an adventure and spending time in the outdoors. To be honest, really anything with the people I love.
