Sarah and Ryan – New Plymouth – 19 January 2013

First wedding of the season and it involved a total name change for both husband and wife! These two individuals are so so in love, and it was a delight to be part of their special day. Sarah looked amazing in what is my favourite dress that I’ve seen this season, and Ryan had to hold in the tears when he saw the love of his life the first time. Amazing celebration in an amazing location for an amazing couple of people. I hope that their travels around the world for the next few months go well and they look back on this day and always remember the love they have for each other and the love that everyone witnessed.

When: Saturday 19th January 2013.

Ceremony and reception: Bowl of Brooklands, Pukekura Park, New Plymouth

Testimonial: “When Ryan and I began discussing who would be our wedding celebrant the big thing we both agreed on was that we wanted someone who was positive and fun with a great sense of humour. Miranda is all these things and more. We met her when she married some good friends of ours and we thought she brought such a young and fresh approach to a wedding ceremony. We wanted to be married by someone we could relate to, someone who would make our day original, vibrant and fun – the way we think we are as people; Miranda was the perfect person for the job. As a celebrant Miranda is extremely organised, flexible and supportive. She is also extremely kind hearted, thoughtful and funny. She allowed us to write our own ceremony and gave advice and assistance where she could. Ryan and I decided to change both our last names so that we could begin our married life with a name that was unique and special to us, Miranda was so positive and supportive about this idea. She researched and arranged all of the paper work for us, we were truly grateful. On the wedding day she was brilliant. She has kept in touch with us following our wedding and we are now proud to call her a friend as well the person who married us. I would recommend Miranda to anyone who wants to make their special day an unforgettable and beautiful experience as she cares so deeply about bringing about your special day and she believes so totally in love.”
