My job is extra special.

Deciding to be married to the one you love is special.

I meet so many fantastic people, love hearing their love story of how they met, their plans for the future and most of all how much they love each other.

Getting married is a special stepping stone in life - and how better to do it with the one you love.

The right time to get married is the time that feels right.

Covid hasn't stopped love, in fact it reinforces love.

My wedding couples are special, each and every one.

Looking forward to resuming weddings after our lockdown and my wonderful registry wedding couples have been very patient.

Where and when are you going to have your wedding?

A registry wedding can take place where you choose.

Whatever your setting - whether it be at my home, your home, or a special place you both love - the choice is yours.

If you are unsure what a registry wedding is all about, contact me through my website or page and I will send you a one page explanation sheet.

Wedding couples

Have your plans been turned upside down because of the lockdowns?

Are you in limbo as to when you will be able to married?

Use the extra time to your advantage to perfect or learn your first dance moves.

Polish off those shoes, turn up the music and start dancing.

If you are thinking of learning a first dance to impress your wedding guests give me a call or email to arrange for some tuition.

Fabulous day today.

Three couples tied the knot, first one in their home in Cockle Bay with a marquee in the back lawn, the second one in the Parnell Rose Gardens - what a lovely spot and the third one in garden of the bride's parents in Howick.

We are so lucky to be able to have registry weddings in the settings the couples want.

Its been a busy time since the start of the year. Wedding season has been full on and New Zealand has been so lucky to be in Level 1.

Loving the bespoke weddings and registry weddings.

For the small registry wedding couples come to my home or a place of their choosing for their wedding.

Every couple is special, unique and so totally in love.

I have to keep repeating my words - "I love my job".

Visit to Markovina for wedding rehearsal this morning and took Isabel and Georgia. They loved the gardens.

So nice to meet my lovely couples.

I loved marrying Tui and Christian - they sent me lovely little message.

Thank you so much Susanne .
We felt right at home today , so very welcoming and we felt at ease being with you and your family especially little Thomas .

Received a lovely text message from Lance and Lucia who had a registry wedding in my home. Love knowing that they loved their ceremony.

Thank you Susanne, thanks for the warm welcoming today. It was unforgettable beautiful ceremony and much appreciated. Thanks for making lovely time with us, it was so good to see you. Take care Susanne, have a great day.

Wow, decided to do a count of the number of weddings I have had the privilege to officiate at since I was registered in 2014.

My very first wedding was for Melissa and Shane. I am sure they won't mind me sharing their photo. A fairytale wedding.

Didn't realise how many - 124 as at today's count.

What makes that so special is that each and every wedding was special.

Ceremonies have been on the beach, in private homes, in my home, venues throughout greater Auckland even as far as Wanaka.

Over this time I have taught first dance routines to couples, MC'd at some weddings and have raised a glass to celebrate couples' special day.

The latest popular fashion accessory for 2020 are masks and some of them look fabulous. Check out an image I found.

Wedding No 125 tomorrow.

Love my job.

Loving the weddings this winter.

Loving the weddings this winter.

Looking forward to the weddings I am conducting over the next month. It is so nice to be able to have my home as a venue for some of weddings.

Winter couples are opting for the indoors now that the weather is changing after our glorious summer and autumn,

My lounge offers an intimate, relaxed space for small weddings for up to 10 people.

The colours are beautiful

Being a busy old time with the weddings and funerals - each ceremony is so special, so unique and so moving.

Felt very honoured to be the celebrant for a friend's memorial service yesterday.
Held at the Ardmore airfield it was very fitting for a man who had lived near to the field in his younger years, trained there and became one of Air New Zealand's top pilots.
Rest in peace - Graeme James Milligan. - friend to many.

Have had some amazing couples get married in my home over the last month.

I have had some delightful registry weddings this last week.

One groom sang as his bride walked down the aisle. He had a stunning voice and she just kept looking at him with absolute joy.

Love my job.

Lovely to have had four registry weddings yesterday. Each one different and each one very special.

I am looking forward to meeting the couples who have booked their special day next week with me.

After a trial period of registry weddings which I had the pleasure of conducting at Nathan Homestead BDM have now registered some celebrants to be able to conduct registry weddings - I applied and have been accepted as a Registry Wedding Celebrant so am able to give lovely couples the opportunity to have a registry wedding at a place of their choice or my home.

Of course with New Zealand being at Level 3 we are only limited to 10 people but there is nothing nicer than a small personal ceremony.

Well everyone - it looks as though it will be easier to conduct weddings and funerals but with only 10 people once we are in Level 3. This is ideal for those who are wanting a registry style wedding.

If you are wanting to get married and only want a small intimate wedding I am taking bookings.

Nice, cosy, winter celebration with nearest and dearest celebrating with you. My home is available for the ceremony or at a venue of your choice.

Check out my website www.ceremonieswithsusanne.co.nz and contact me for a booking time.

23/03/2020

What a week. What a month. And what is coming up in the next month?

Big kudos to my wedding couples for being sensible and taking the approach that by postponing their wedding means that when they can finally get married they will be able to have the guests there that they had originally invited.

And we will all look back on this episode in New Zealand (and world history) as an experience we will never forget.

Lets look for the good to come out of this. We will find that we may develop habits (good ones) that will last a lifetime.

17/03/2020

This evening I received a phone call from one of my wedding couples who had planned a fabulous wedding in April.

They have decided that because of the number of guests they were having they would need to make other arrangements.

So, they are opting for a small ceremony and next year will have a vow renewal at their original venue.

The venue has been amazing and transferred their booking to the following year, same time, same place.

So their disappointment has turned into a win win situation.
Two ceremonies, two years, two dresses, same celebrant!

Josh and Chelsea got married on Leap Day. It was a perfect setting at the French Bay Yacht Club. They got married on the deck with all their friends and family there.

They wrote these lovely words.

Thanks so much for being our celebrant, we actually had a lot of people say what a great ceremony it was.

Susanne, was an incredible celebrant and made our wedding perfect. She will make sure you have the ceremony you want, and takes care to ensure the day is about you and your guests. We were a bit unsure about our vows but Susanne was very reassuring and gave us the confidence to deliver our vows, even though I (the bride) am quite introverted. Thank you Susanne, for being a part of our special day!

A time to propose, a time to get married, what are you doing?

I am officiating at Josh and Chelsea's wedding in a beautiful setting in West Auckland.

So nice to receive thank you letters from two families. To be appreciated is lovely but to have it acknowledged is wonderful. Love my job.

Dear Susanne
Thank you so much for officiating at my dad's funeral yesterday. It was a lovely service and we really appreciate everything you said and did for us. It was just perfect!

Hi Susanne
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely service yesterday for my Dad.. It was beautiful and he had a great send off - I am sure he would have enjoyed it.
Thank you for making everything easy for our family and for putting together a lovely service.

Wedding cakes - remember the days when there was just one type of cake - fruit with white icing and probably a bride and groom on the top of it.

Now we see all types of cakes used as wedding cakes. What was yours? Or what is yours going to be?

What is this? Winter back again?

Beautiful flowers from my cousins as a thank you gift for being the celebrant at my aunt's funeral. A very special lady who was the last of her brothers and sisters to pass away. My Mum's sister.
