CELEBRANTS 4 U

Ceremonies Individually Tailored to You
Let's Create Memories Together

Introducing Tania and Russell Pratt.

We are a happily married couple in our 50s with 6 adult children between us.

We both decided to become Independent Celebrants as we both love people, life and talking. We believe that we are all on the same life journey and we should all be accepted and respected.

We look forward to working with you to deliver the ceremony you want.

MARRIAGE

Let us assist you to plan and personalise your special day and make it a day to remember.

Every ceremony is unique and together we can create a ceremony that reflects your wishes and signifies your new life together. Your wedding should be an enjoyable occasion where you can relax, have fun and realise your dreams as you signify your life together.

Our approach to being a celebrant is centred on creativity and openness and we honour your cultural and spiritual beliefs.

Call us now and we can help and guide you so that on your special day everything will run smoothly and “Let’s create wonderful memories for you”

FUNERALS

We provide support for the family and work with you to make the farewell of your loved one a respectful and special celebration of their life with love and dignity.

RENEWAL OF VOWS

We can assist you with the renewal of your vows and help you choose an intimate ceremony to celebrate this special anniversary.

LOCATION

We are based in Paremata, Wellington and able to travel to your venue by arrangement.
We will also travel internationally to make your event super-special

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN INTIMATE WEDDING VENUE IN WELLINGTON?

As well as our celebrant role, we are also happy to provide extra services too, to make your day flow as easily as possible. These wedding planning ideas may be helpful if you’re visiting from overseas. Perhaps to take advantage of our liberal and progressive same-gender marriage equality laws - or if you’d prefer to have all your wedding preparations dealt with by us.

We can give recommendations for a florist, catering, photographer, venues, accommodation and whatever else you’d like. We can organise your wedding cake and provide two witnesses as well. We can advise you on the legalities of getting married in New Zealand, and can even help with your wedding vows.

AND AS AN ADDED BONUS, YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF USING OUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AS A WEDDING VENUE.

It looks out onto the Mana Marina and the panoramic views from the deck are quite special - click
here to view the gallery. Whether it’s a bright sunny day, a moody, cloudy afternoon, or a warm summer's evening. The drama and excitement of the Mana Marina makes a wonderful backdrop for stunning scenic wedding pictures.

It’s a beautiful setting in which to declare your commitment in front of family and friends.

If the weather is not so great we have excellent facilities within our house to make your ceremony special.

These two options are ideal for those couples who would prefer a small, quiet, intimate ceremony. Not everybody wants the fuss and drama of a big wedding day! And our private residence is the perfect alternative to a Registry Office. You have the advantage of celebrating in a secure, beautiful venue without the impersonal surroundings (and random strangers) that you may find in a public building.

For those same-gender couples whose country of birth may not allow marriage, or whose family and friends may not be fully supportive of your relationship our home offers discreet and peaceful surroundings in which you can declare your love. And you can rest assured your ceremony will be kept absolutely confidential if you wish.

BOTH THE OCEAN-VIEW DECK AND THE COURTYARD GARDEN CATER FOR UP TO EIGHT GUESTS.

This makes it the perfect choice for those couples who are travelling from other areas, and whose family and friends might not be able to make it on the day.
And after the ceremony, you can relax and celebrate with delicious nibbles and champagne. It’s so easy!

By choosing our home as a venue, you’ll also have the advantage of being only 20 minutes drive from centre of Wellington. This is a fabulous cosmopolitan city in which to spend your honeymoon. Or as a starting off point to explore the rest of beautiful New Zealand.
If you’re looking for a marriage celebrant and an intimate wedding venue in New Zealand’s biggest city, contact us now. We provide many additional wedding services, and will do our very best to ensure your special day is made all the more memorable.

We also have a fully self contained bed and breakfast annexed to our house which can be booked separately if you wish to use it as a honeymoon suite. We guarantee a bottle of Moet & Chandon French Champagne will be on ice waiting for you once your guests have left!
