Celebrant Hayley travels far and wide around New Zealand for love!

Hayley is a storyteller, a party-starter and a kick-arse marry-er! And she’s a celebrant who loves all things weddings. Her approach is relaxed, fun and as romantic or humorous as you would like your day to be! Hayley is all about creating a personalised ceremony that suits you as a couple. If you are traditional she can do that, if you are big weirdos she can do that (likely even better). Hayley also has extensive experience as an event coordinator and stylist and is more than happy to help in any way possible on your big day.

Tell us about yourself? You could say that I have my finger in many pies as I also work as an event coordinator and stylist for Event Goals, run Parties by Hayley which is my own children’s birthday party business, work as a nanny and of course as a celebrant! Something fun about me is when I have a few too many drinks I tend to believe I’m a performer and enjoy getting up on stage (with very limited talent).

Tell us about your style? I am very relaxed and informal and love to have a laugh with just the right amount of banter. I believe there can be the perfect sprinkle of organic humour without trying too hard.

Best part of any ceremony for you? This is hard to pick but I think the beginning and the end. I absolutely love seeing grooms faces as their bride walks down the aisle and then when the couple walks back up officially married on an absolute high is such a happy moment as they are officially married and ready to celebrate.

Favourite things? I love to travel and hold special memories from living in London, Sydney and Montreal. Now that I’m settled in Christchurch I adore drinking vino by the fire with my husband and my puppy, plats and chats with the girls or exploring some of Christchurch’s finest establishments for a cocktail and a boogie!
