The landscape of Marriage in New Zealand has changed over recent years, and now that same sex marriages are allowed, the popularity of Civil Unions has decreased but if you'd like to enter into a Civil Union.... please note that civil unios may NOT be recognised as having the same rights as marriage overseas
Love is for everyone
I truly believe love is for everyone! No matter what your culture, background, lifestyle, sexual orientation or quirky ceremony you'd like to undertake, I'm always honoured to conduct a Marriage or Civil Union ceremony to join two people in love.
An elopement is an extremely intimate ceremony - a romantic way for you to commit to each other without the audience, complications and timeframes required for a large wedding. A great alternative to a registry office wedding with just the two of you, me, and two witnesses (which I can arrange if required).
None of the trappings
If planning a wedding isn't something you want to do (due to time, effort, guest lists or family issues, or simply all the details) or your financial goals don't include the costs of a traditional wedding, you should seriously consider an elopement! You can have a beautiful, fun, special ceremony with just the elements that are important to you (whether its the dress, the flowers, or photos etc) and you can have a lot of fun surprising everyone later.
When you have an elopement, you can get married just about anywhere! There are so many options for your ceremony location - from your own backyard, a friends garden, cafes/restaurants, hotels, beaches and parks. And because it's a small group, venues are usually easier to arrange at short notice too.
Reasons to renew
There are many different reasons to consider renewing your vows … for the romance, because one of you has overcome a serious illness, to reaffirm your love after a period of hardship or estrangement, to do something you wish you'd done for your wedding, to include children, or simply to celebrate a special wedding anniversary.
When to renew
The simple answer is that there isn't a "right" time! Regardless of how long you have been married, when a vow renewal feels like the right thing to do, it can be a beautiful ceremony of love and commitment which revitalizes your relationship, and serves as an inspiration to the people you choose to attend (it's definitely your party this time around!).
As there aren't the legalities of a wedding, the vow renewal ceremony can be all about what you want to say to each other at this time in your lives. Remember, its not a second wedding - it's an opportunity to reflect on your life together so far, as well as to make vows and commitments for the future.
