Pippa and Jon – Island Bay – 19 October 2013

Pippa and Jon started my wedding “season” off this a delightful ceremony at the Band Rotunda in the picturesque Island Bay. The setting was perfect – despite the Wellington wind – as this beautiful couple has great ties to this magnificent coastline. Their family and friends travelled from all over the world to see Pippa and Jon start their journey in wedded bliss, and there were four beautiful flower girls and a handsome ring master to make this ceremony something special. It was a delight looking out at the sea of family and friends who were there to share in this special day with you both. Thanks to both Pippa and Jon for being so welcoming and I trust you all danced the night away at the reception!

Ceremony: The Band Rotunda, Island Bay, Wellington. This was built in the 1930s to commemorate the 152 local soldiers that lost their lives in WWI and WWII, together with the loss of American submarines and their crews in the wider Pacific region.

Testimonial: “A big thanks to Miranda for being our Celebrant and making our day fabulous. Miranda was a great celebrant for us, she steered us expertly through the wedding planning mine field and helped us create a ceremony that was focussed on the things important to us – love, fun, family, friends. Throughout the whole process Miranda made us feel comfortable and confident in the choices we were making, she asked relevant questions, listened to our thoughts, provided practical tools and resources and kept us on track with gentle reminders when milestones were approaching. Miranda has a great style and a real passion for the role of celebrant. We would heartily recommend Miranda.”
