“We were recommended Philippa by our photographer and I am so so thankful we were! We were planning a wedding for Queenstown from Auckland so didn’t have a chance to meet Philippa in person. But despite never meeting her she delivered an amazing ceremony that was so personalised it seemed as though we’d been life long friends. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted, it was personal, filled with love and so unique. She is absolutely amazing and I definitely recommend using Philippa! Philippa thank you for making our day so special, we can’t thank you enough x “

“Dear Philippa

We want to say the biggest thank you for helping us create our perfect vision of a little elopement ceremony: a relaxed conversation, with plenty of laughs, that ended in us being married! We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant to bring it all together and make us feel completely comfortable. Thank you for being part of a beautiful moment in the forest with us <3”

“On behalf of Shamaun and I , we just want to thank you for creating such a beautiful ceremony for us. We had no clue what we wanted and we were both nervous for the day but we shouldn't have been! We both had no clue how we would want the ceremony to be but your guidance was much appreciated and we appreciated your guidance on the day and to stay calm if I saw an ant on my dress!


We could not recommend you enough and will be sure to send anyone planning to have a wedding to NZ your way. Thank you once again.”

Thank you again for being so friendly, fun and warm - and understanding exactly what we were trying to get from the day. it was absolutely perfect and we had a lot of fun!”

"Philippa was an absolute star and I can honestly say that our wedding day would not have been as wonderful had it not been for her. The amount of time and effort she put into our ceremony was incredible. During our meetings with Philippa, it was clear that she absolutely loves when she does. She shared so many beautiful stories of weddings she had been a part of as well as some memories of her own wedding. It felt like we had known Philippa forever and we felt truly blessed to have her be our celebrant. 
She took the stress out of everything! Her amazing sense of humour, gorgeous nature and passion for her work resulted in such a heartwarming ceremony that so many of our guests commented on. 
Thank you for everything Philippa! You are the BEST!"

“PHILIPPA IS SUCH A LOVELY PERSON AND THIS WAS EVIDENT FROM THE VERY FIRST CONTACT WITH HER. HER INVITING, CHEERFUL PERSONALITY IMMEDIATELY MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE CHATTING WITH A FRIEND. WE FELT SO INVOLVED WITH THE PROCESS OF WRITING OUR CEREMONY, AND SHE WAS SO FLEXIBLE AND OPEN TO MAKING ANY CHANGES THAT WE REQUESTED. SHE WROTE AN ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, TOUCHING, PERSONAL CEREMONY FOR US THAT CAPTURED OUR STORY, OUR FAVOURITE POEMS AND EVEN THE DIFFERENT LANGUAGES WE SPEAK! WE COULD NOT RECOMMEND PHILIPPA MORE HIGHLY! WE ARE HONOURED THAT SHE MARRIED US.”

We would highly recommend Philippa as a celebrant to anyone, she created and performed our wedding in July. Philippa’s flexibility and friendliness helped us to create a ceremony that was perfect for us. She made us feel at ease and relaxed during the ceremony which meant that we could have fun with it and really enjoy the moment. The way in which she performed it was flawless and it flowed impeccably. we felt completely taken care of and knew that you would make all the elements of the ceremony come together. Thank you so much for marrying us, it wouldn’t have been so special without you. You helped make our wedding day even more magical.”
