I’m a wife, a mother, and an extremely passionate wedding celebrant based in Dunedin. I love shoes, cheese and love in all its fabulous forms. I don’t care whether you’re black, white, green, boy, girl, or not sure, if you want to get married on the beach, elope, or in the back yard; if you’re in love, and want to commit your life and your heart to your soul mate, I’ll marry you (except if you’re already married, or related, because that’s just weird, and illegal)
I became a celebrant because I love love, and weddings, and people, and think outside the box, and I wanted to show couples that there are so many ways that you can celebrate your love and tie the knot. Your wedding day should be about you, your personalities and your love story, not about what Great Aunty Fanny thinks you should have (no disrespect to any Great Aunty Fanny’s out there).
Imagine if you were the first people ever to get married, or you had never been to a wedding before, how do you think it should look? What would you say to each other? Who would be involved? Let’s get together and have a chat about what you have planned and how I can help make your wedding ceremony a true reflection of you and your love, whatever that looks like. I also perform vow renewals, baby naming ceremonies and can MC your reception or event.
I believe in simple, beautiful design. Your wedding invitations will communicate exactly what your wedding day will be about to your guests – whether it’s fun and relaxed, romantic and rustic, or elegant and modern.
How do I order my wedding invitations?
Before I even fire up my design software, we’re going to sit down over coffee (via a Skype call or at my home office) – and I’m going to ask you a lot of questions! This gives me an understanding of what colours, textures and styles will connect you with your wedding dreams and turn them into reality.
I really want to get to know you, your partner and your wedding day inside and out. That way, I can design a wedding invitation that beautifully reflects the wedding you want, and the couple you are.
Ordering your wedding invitations online
If you’ve fallen in love with one of my pre-made designs, you can order quickly online. The order process is automated, but the service isn’t. Once I get your order, I’ll design your wedding invites with just as much care and attention as anyone else. You’ll receive an electronic draft of your invite for review before it goes to print, so you know it’ll be perfect.

Located just metres from the Otago Central Rail Trail, the Omakau Commercial Hotel was built in 1898 by William Leask as Omakau’s first homestead then accommodation house for weary travellers.
It is now an ideal stop for the new type of traveller that passes through Omakau –Rail Trailers, Curling and Fishing Enthusiasts, and visitors to the Central Otago area who can explore the area using the hotel as their base.
Located at the back of the Hotel, are the original schist stables which were built around 1880 to house Mr Leask’s horses when he farmed the land the hotel now stands on. You may have already seen them without knowing – this is where Speight’s filmed their “Good On Ya Mate” adverts – the most memorable being “The Two Tickets to the Ball. Now called McKinnons, this lovely building is available for functions, and is open during the day for you to come and enjoy some of Central’s original history.
This lovely schist and stone building is one of the originals in Omakau. It is located directly behind the hotel, and bikes are securely stored in one of the stalls which used to house transport of a different kind once upon a time! Believed to have been built in the late 1880’s by Mr William Leask (who built the hotel as his homestead in 1898), this was originally built to house his work horses, and the other half of the building was his shearing shed. William built the stables on his 200 odd acres he was farming at the time, but lived across the river at Blacks and couldn’t get his horses back home when the river flooded – hence, to our good fortune, the construction of the stables.
Steeped in history, McKinnons was named as a result of the Speights advertisements that were filmed there – you may have already seen it without knowing. The most popular one was the “Good On Ya Mate” – Two Tickets to the Ball. McKinnons is full of memorabilia from the era of yesteryear and is open every day for viewing – don’t forget to bring your camera! It is a great photo opportunity both inside (behind the bar of course!) and out.
McKinnons is also the perfect and unique location for those special functions and intimate weddings. Private and secluded, the atmosphere and ambience is something quite special and certainly makes it a night to be remembered. Our chefs compliment the evening with their menu choices. If you would like to enquire about a function or a conference in McKinnons, please don’t hesitate to contact us
