kia ora, I'm Sarah.
I grew up at Tatum Park, a wedding venue, and from a young age I was allowed to watch the weddings if I promised to stay quiet!
I was captivated by the hushed reverence when the bride walked down the aisle, the look on the grooms face, the happy tears in the father's eyes and the joy upon the pronouncement of the marriage.
I came back to the wedding industry after years doing other things, as I missed the joy that comes with such a happy occasion.
I love love!
As a Celebrant, Wedding Manager and MC, I find much delight in helping couples have the smoothest and happiest day of their lives.
Funerals take a special energy.
It is a privilege to be able to spend time with families just after the loss of a loved one. Emotions are high, tears are near and comfort and care is needed.
My role is to gently guide you through the planning of your loved one's service, work with the funeral home to pull all of your wishes for the service together, to help you through the day of the funeral, and to perform the service in a manner that shows great care and respect. I work with all funeral homes, religions, ages and beliefs.
Working with people ahead of their death is such a special time for me - and for the person pre-planning their funeral, it provides much comfort and closure that they have managed to share their thoughts and wishes and provide guidance on what they would like to happen.
I am a mum of three, a Pilates instructor, a fan of the outdoors, tramping and running.
I am a confident public speaker, punctual, organised and can smooth away nerves, ensure little details are taken care of and give you a ceremony or service that you look back on with fond memories.
Let's meet up and chat,
