Nick and Ingrid – 7 May 2017

“Look at one another and remember this moment in time. Before this moment you have been many things to one another- acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years.

Now you shall say a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world, this- is my husband, this- is my wife.”

– Union by Robert Fulgham

This was a beautiful wedding in a new setting for me (The Pier) which had picturesque views over Evans Bay. The venue was set up with many lovely handmade and thoughtful touches – all the brainchild of Ingrid and Nick. Creative and lovely are two words that sum this gorgeous couple up and it was an honur to work alongside Paul Howell Photography and marry these two!


“Miranda was approachable and laid-back from our first meeting with her, and was great to work with right through to our “big day”. She collaborated with us really well, and helped us to turn our vague ideas into a wedding ceremony that held together. She also gave us lots of great suggestions for readings and vendors! This is someone who we think genuinely loves weddings, and she put that positive energy into making our ceremony just the right balance of fun and serious. We came out of the process with a ceremony that was personal to us, and incorporated all the important parts without feeling like a cookie-cutter solution. 
Throughout the wedding preparation, Miranda made us feel like our concerns were important, and was calm and organised about responding to emails and sorting out the paperwork, even when we were behind schedule! She was easily contactable for all those last-minute-panic questions, and despite being generally a pretty relaxed presence, proved herself to be a capable leader. She stepped up to herd us clueless sheep through our rehearsal really efficiently, so everyone felt comfortable on the day. She used the same skills when it came to getting through our family photos; Miranda was a real help without being overbearing. We loved having her there on our day, and will always treasure her part in our wedding ceremony. If you’re looking for someone to run your wedding ceremony your way, and are currently trying to pick a celebrant out of a sea of basically-identical online profiles, we can’t recommend Miranda highly enough.”
