Crafting Your Unique Wedding Experience

Your love story is one-of-a-kind, and your wedding ceremony should be too. I firmly believe that your wedding should be a reflection of who you are as a couple, an authentic narrative of your journey together. It's a privilege to be a part of the journey where two souls come together in a lifelong commitment.

Navigating the legalities and administrative aspects can often seem daunting, but I'm here to guide you through it all. My mission is to curate a ceremony that resonates with your hearts and captures the essence of your love story. My role is to ensure that your special day unfolds seamlessly, allowing you to savour every moment.

Love knows no boundaries, and I warmly welcome all couples to reach out to me. I'm genuinely excited to meet couples from across the globe who are on the brink of embarking on this incredible new chapter in their lives. While I'm based in Auckland, I'm more than willing to journey with you, whether by road or air, should your dream wedding take you beyond Auckland's borders. No travel fee for Taupo weddings.

Your wedding day, your way – let's make it an unforgettable celebration of your love.

So, what's next?

What's the next step in creating your personalized wedding ceremony experience? It all begins with a delightful encounter, typically over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, although virtual meetings are also an option for your convenience.

Should you find that I resonate with your vision and feel like the right celebrant for your special day, I'll provide you with a tailored questionnaire. We'll then discuss your unique love story and any specific preferences you have in mind for your ceremony.

Following our conversation, I'll craft a one-of-a-kind ceremony script, exclusively for you. You'll receive a draft, and I'll gladly make revisions until it aligns perfectly with your dreams. Rest assured, I'll guide you through the essential legal requirements and administrative tasks to ensure a smooth journey.

While not every couple opts for a wedding rehearsal, if you choose to have one, I'll make myself available to attend if needed. Finally, when your big day arrives, you can count on me to be there, orchestrating your ceremony with heartfelt dedication.


A little about me

I’m based right here in Auckland. I share my home with my wonderful husband, our delightfully eccentric feline friend, and we're currently enjoying having our adult daughter living with us.

My journey has taken me from the picturesque shores of Taupo to various corners of the world, including stints at a university, life in both the Pacific and Europe, a previous life as an accountant, experience in sales account management, and even event planning. As a result, I've cultivated exceptional organisational skills, the ability to strike up a conversation with just about anyone, and the confidence to speak publicly with ease.

When I'm not busy officiating beautiful weddings, you'll often find me out for a run (or what some might affectionately call "fast walking"), or enjoying a leisurely lunch and stroll through the city with family and friends. I also love being at home, where I channel my creativity into my latest art project, tend to our garden, or whip up culinary delights in the kitchen.

I recently asked some of my favourite people how they would describe me, and the consensus was clear: Petrina is loyal, engaging, enthusiastic, and kind. Needless to say, I'm incredibly fortunate to have such lovely individuals in my life.

When I have the privilege of being your celebrant, your ceremony will be a reflection of your love story alone – a heartfelt celebration brimming with pure joy and boundless love.
