Wendy Barton Celebrant


Ceremonies designed with sensitivity, warmth and fun

Congratulations on embarking on this fantastic step in your future together.

You’ve found each other, made a plan, probably booked a venue and now you are looking for the right person to help you with your marriage ceremony. While you actually marry yourselves when you say your vows I work with you to design a ceremony that is uniquely yours. And on your wedding day my calm, organised manner (with a little gentle humour thrown in) will keep you relaxed and happy so you can really enjoy this wonderful part of your day.

I am deeply passionate about my role as a celebrant and would love to meet or skype with you to discuss how I can create and deliver a relevant and meaningful ceremony for your special day. This first meeting is without charge or obligation so that you can see if we all “click” and decide if I am the celebrant for you.

I have a warm, friendly, open personality and I work to a high professional standard.



Why choose me?

Available in Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Rotorua, Waihi Beach, Hamilton… the entire Bay of Plenty and Waikato – and further afield by request.
