Civil Unions

gay-marriage-civil-union-celebrant-christchurchAs a Civil Union Celebrant, I welcome the opportunity to provide a quality service to same gender couples and anyone else seeking a Civil Union Ceremony.

It is ultimately your ceremony and I aim to deliver what you desire. I have no prejudices and I trust  you will feel comfortable with my honest and open-minded approach.

I welcome all couples from Canterbury and those living overseas who wish to formally recognise their relationship through a Civil Union Ceremony by a Civil Union Celebrant.

I look forward to discussing & working with you towards your personalised civil union ceremony for you and your partner to share with your family and friends.

What is a civil union?

The Civil Union Act 2004 provides the criteria, rules and processes for two people to have their relationship solemnised as a civil union (by way of a formal ceremony) and officially registered in New Zealand. A Civil Union may be entered into by couples of the same sex or by couples of different sexes.
