Leah officiates weddings throughout Christchurch and in the North Canterbury/Hanmer area.

Leah wants you to have an authentic experience, personal to you. It is your day and she cannot wait to hear about your love story. Small and intimate, large or lavish? Same sex? Not your first? Love is love and laughter will fill the air! Trust that Leah will listen to your wishes and create a bespoke ceremony personal to you.

Tell us about yourself? I’m a 42-year-old mother and I adore my blended family. I have two birth children who are 13 & 14 and two gifts from heaven who are 23 & 25. In my role as a Real Estate agent and Auctioneer I’m very comfortable around people of all walks of life and public speaking comes naturally to me. In a past life I was a television presenter which I think helps me to be confident and relaxed whether speaking to a couple or a crowd. I love love and marring people is a joy to me!

Tell us about your style? I’m a very adaptable and take my cue from the beautiful couple and their guests; I’m good at reading a room. I’m in my element when the mood is light and laughter fills the air. I will relax and guide you, like a friend there to put you at ease.

Best part of any ceremony for you? The favourite part of any ceremony is watching the groom nervous and excitedly waiting for his bride.

Favourite things? My favourite pass time has to be long lunches with great friends or relaxing watching mindless Netflix. The kids keep me entertained with a lot of laughs: raising teenagers is a ride in itself.
