Hello! My name is Jodie, I'm a personable, adventure loving, young at heart celebrant + MC based in Wanaka, New Zealand. I have been a professional writer and MC since 2003 and a celebrant since 2014.  


I have an absolute passion for celebrating both love and life. So, whether you are planning a wedding, an elopement, a vow renewal ceremony, a naming ceremony or the celebration of someone's life, I am able to help you create a beautiful, heartfelt and personalised ceremony.

I offer my celebrant services right across the south of New Zealand including; Wanaka, Queenstown, Cardrona, Treble Cone, Mt Aspiring National Park, Fiordland National Park, Cromwell, Alexandra, Clyde, Te Anau, Twizel and Tekapo.  

I'm also available at other New Zealand locations on request. 

"We wanted to send you a note to say a HUGE thank you for everything you did for our special day. 


We are so happy we found you, we could not have imagined anyone else marrying us! You were everything! You were great to deal with, helpful, wrote an incredible ceremony and made us feel very comfortable - reminding us to take in all the special moments!


We would recommend you to anyone, you were the best celebrant and so much more."

"We had a Western-Sri Lankan ceremony and Jodie was very accommodating in allowing us to structure our ceremony how we liked. Her ceremony resources were also really helpful. 

Where Jodie excelled and really stood out though was on the wedding day. She was amazing at coordinating the events of the ceremony and was extremely practical in taking the initiative to troubleshoot and think ahead as required. All with consideration of everyone involved. Couldn’t have imagined anyone better to have officiated our wedding and supported us through it all!"
