'Now join your hands, and with your hands, your hearts’- Shakespeare

Weddings

To be joined together in marriage is the natural desire in all of us to love and be loved. It is the time you have chosen to make a public declaration of the deep love and commitment you feel for one another.

In the big picture of your life, your wedding will be way up there in your significant moments.   Just as your relationship is unique, it is my aim to design a unique ceremony for you.  A ceremony that reflects you and your love, and one  which is harmonious with your beliefs, ideals and personal style.  Whether you want your special day to be traditional or contemporary, I will  confidently design a ceremony that fits perfectly.
I like to take the time to get to know you both and learn what is important to you, to ensure every detail meets your expectation.  I feel strongly that you both should enjoy planning your ceremony.  I have a wide range of resources; readings, poems, music and ideas which I can share with you.   I can advise you on the legal requirements of a wedding and supply you with the necessary documentation. 

I am always available and encourage you to phone or email me as necessary.  You can have peace of mind that my professional attitude, organisational skills, creativity and attention to detail will ensure that your ceremony will flow well and be all that you dreamed.

I consider my work as a Marriage Celebrant a great privilege, and I look forward to working with you.  I welcome you to an obligation-free meeting.  During this time we can meet each other and discuss what you would like in your ceremony. Then should you decide to make a booking we can proceed from there.

Being part of your day would be an honour.

Thank you for everything, especially you Janice, it was so, so, special having you as our Celebrant. You were amazing, supportive and generous.  We were lucky to have you.

Love,

Matt and Lyd xxx, March 2016

Janice was a great celebrant who exceeded our expectations, she went over and above to really get to know us our relationship and personalities. Janice was professional but also had a manner that was relaxed and calm which is exactly what we were after.

Victoria and Michael, March 2016

When looking for a celebrant, we wanted someone who really understood what a ceremony meant to us. Someone who  took the time to get to know us as people first, in order to help shape the ceremony in the right way. We also wanted this person to be organised, diligent and trusting. We found this and much more with Janice.

 Janice was very organised (which made me, the bride, feel at ease), friendly and listened to what was important to us. All these traits mentioned helped bring our big day to life, in the way we wanted.

 She delivered brilliantly on the day, and we highly recommend Janice if you're looking for the same things we did in a celebrant.

Dee and Justin, February 2016

We cannot thank Janice enough for being  such an integral part of our memorable wedding day. She lead us every step of the way and her influence made the process extremely simple. Her presence was guiding throughout all the steps of the ceremony and her experience and composure made our celebration seamless, relaxed and without any missaps. Our family and guest all commented on how lovely and professional Janice was and how her presence made everyone at ease and calm, she communicated to everyone what to do and orchestrated every move from the wedding party. Our celebration was filled with emotion and it will be a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Janice

 We just want to thank you so much for being a part of our special day, you made the planning of our ceremony relaxing, helped us make it that extra special by incorporating the lighting of the Candle to remember those who couldn't  be there and the Sand ceremony to celebrate the joining of two families.  The cermony flowed gorgeously with warmth, love and laughter. We can't thank you enough.

We really appreciated the warmth and friendly approach that Janice brought not only to our wedding day but through the entire process. From our initial meetings onwards she did an amazing job of ensuring all the details for the day were well organised and ran smoothly. She was incredibly professional, but down to earth at the same time which is exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant.

Thank you so much Janice for the great job you did; we would have no reservations in recommending you to others.

Beth and Mike, October 2015

We are so thankful for everything you have done for us. We couldn't have asked for a more organised and passionate celebrant. You made the whole process fun, easy going and nerve settling. Your suggestions and tips helped us plan for small details that may have been overlooked and you helped make the ceremony reflect who we are. We will always be grateful to you for being our celebrant.

Rebecca and Tim, April 2015

We cannot thank Janice enough for the amazing job she did leading up to and on our wedding day! Janice's warm and friendly personality made us feel so at ease as she guided us through the whole process making sure we knew exactly what to do and what to expect. Janice made everything seem so easy and she also gave us lots of great advice and priceless tips for the big day - proving her wisdom and experience as a celebrant to be invaluable. Not only is Janice always beautifully presented she is a total professional and ensured our ceremony ran absolutely seamlessly which took so much pressure of us. We had many guests compliment us on our choice of celebrant and we could not have agreed more!  Thanks Janice!

Stay Warm, Julia & Michael

Kristy and Francis, December 2014

Planning a wedding ceremony we had no idea where to start - thank goodness for Janice. She was well organised, took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us personalize our vows to suit us. Her warm and engaging personality made planning the ceremony a breeze and most importantly, she genuinely shared in our excitement.

On the day itself, she ensured everyone knew what to do and was a very calming influence on 2 very nervous people! I have since had several people ask for her details to book her in for their own ceremonies.

 Thank you Janice, we really appreciated all you did for us.

Kristina and Cam, April 2014

Eric and I just wanted to say a very big thank you for everything on Saturday. It was all so perfect!! All the guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, thank you so much for organizing it so well.  Thanks again.

Thank you so much for being there with us on our incredible day.  We really couldn’t have done it without you! (I’m sure you’ve heard that before)

The ceremony was absolutely perfect, we truly couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.  You helped us immensely throughout the process of personalising our vows and tributes, which we are so happy we did, even though difficult at a hectic time!

Thanks so much.

Anna and Jamie, March 2014

Thank you so much for being an important part of our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding celebrant. The information, support and knowledge you provided helped us organise our ceremony. Your warm, relaxed personality made us feel at ease throughout the planning and on the day. Thank you for helping to make our wedding a special, memorable day.

Rochelle and Anthony, March 2014

"We loved, working with Janice to make our ceremony just the way we wanted it. Janice was friendly, encouraging and made the process a lot of fun from the start. We wanted our ceremony to be a little different and fun, Janice was very thoughtful and helped us to make this possible. We particularly liked the tributes we were encouraged to write for one another and everyone thought our vows were very special. Janice was efficient, organised and spoke to all the right people beforehand to make sure that everything went smoothly. Thanks again Janice, from the happily married Mr & Mrs Duin!,"

Salouni and Alec, February 2014

A huge thank you for playing such an integral role in our wedding day. You were such a massive help and support to Phil and I, both in the lead up and on our wedding day. We will always remember our ceremony as a fun and relaxed part of our day, it ran so smoothly and that is all thanks to you.

Marie and Christiaan, January 2014

“We are both so glad that we found Janice, we couldn’t have had a better wedding celebrant! She has a great balance of being professional and organised but being warm and welcoming at the same time and we felt comfortable straight away. Janice guided us through the whole process from the first time we sat down together right through to the big day and could not have been more helpful. The ceremony Janice put together for us was perfect and exactly what we wanted! Lots of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it, and were also impressed with Janice’s relaxed and friendly manner. I will definitely recommend any of my friends who are getting married to go and see Janice!”

Lauren and Marc, January 2014

Just wanted to say thanks for being our celebrant and did a wonderful job as marriage celebrant at our wedding.

You were so professional, well presented and you delivered a beautiful wedding ceremony, it was more than what we expected, Thank you so much for creating that for us and you were fantastic. we are so happy to have had you as our celebrant.

Nina and Eric, January 2014

“Now where in the world do we start with the main event of getting married… the ceremony!” would be of course every first time married couples question. Well Janice Kingston, thank you for ticking all the boxes and putting us at ease.  From the first day we met, you gladly showed us that wedding ceremony’s are a wonderful and special moment that can help to tell the story of our love. With a warm welcoming smile Janice Kingston gladly organized our special ceremony just the way we had wanted. She took extra care to ensure that our culture was respectfully interwoven into our ceremony as well as giving direction and guidance when needed.   Thank you again Janice for your attention to detail and making sure we were wedded the way we wanted.
 

 

Sharlene and Naseri, November 2013

"Thank you so much for being involved in our special day, and for all the words of wisdom and poetry you provided us with to help us publicly verbalise our promises and devotion to each other.  You are a super lovely, warm and friendly celebrant, thank you for helping to make the ceremony planning a breeze!"
 

Danielle and Stephen, April 2013

Our wedding was small and intimate with some traditions followed and others left out. Since it wasn’t the ‘norm’ wedding we weren’t sure where to start and what to do. Janice was amazing at drawing out what we wanted, finding out about us, and guiding us when needed. The ceremony was exactly as we envisioned, she helped the day flow and put everyone at ease. Our guests commented on how great she was.

 I would highly recommend Janice as the celebrant for your special day whether it is big or small. She made our special day perfect!

Micheline and Michael, April 2013

We had such a wonderful day, wouldn't have wished for anything to be done differently.

A lot of that is down to your relaxed manner and the way you facilitated our ceremony. Loads of people commented on how beautiful it was and personal. Thank you for encouraging us to do that. I am hoping never to need a wedding celebrant again in my life but will definitely be recommending you to anyone who asks! Thanks again. You helped to make our day really special.

Amanda and Phil, April 2013

We found Janice Kingston online when trawling through the thousands of celebrants around Auckland. What set Janice apart from the other celebrants was that she really went that extra mile for us, taking the effort and time to meet us in our "home" suburb coming extremely prepared. Janice had a warm approach and seemed to genuinely care about our special day. From there we had a few further meetings with Janice which were laid back, productive, and comforting. Janice made a great effort to include both of us in the planning and was superb at guiding us through the structure of our ceremony, providing many examples and ensuring that our wedding was customised and special. Janice allowed us to add our own special touches and was supportive in working around our own music and our own ideas. The rehearsal that Janice held for us was a fantastic preparation session and she was great at advising where to stand and what to do both to get the best effect for the photographer and for the crowd. On the day, the ceremony was carried out with professionalism, care, and it was wonderful to see how much Janice had actually put into ensuring everything went perfectly for us. I was very impressed with the service she offered and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a stand out celebrant, not afraid to include your own ideas, and who goes that extra mile for her clients.

Abby and James, April , 2013

We were very happy with our ceremony, you were wonderful to deal with and fabulous on the day.

We’re so happy the day went so well. 

Tracey and Darren, March 2013

Both Daniel and I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did on our wedding day.
We know that getting hitched on a rugby league field is little bit strange!
You made us both feel very relaxed at what could have been a very stressful time.
Some of our guests made mention of how lovely and professional you were and thought you made our ceremony very personal and unique to our particular taste.
Once again we thank you for helping make our special day one to remember.
   Yours sincerely
 

Jennifer and Daniel, March 2013

Janice, we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so perfect.  We had no idea where to start, although after the lovely ceremony you did for my son and his wife we certainly knew who to contact. Being an older couple we didn't know how the service would be best suited for us wanting a garden wedding at home, however after our consultation we left you feeling confident that the day would go well; which it did.  

The selection of services, vows and ideas you have certainly gave us the perfect choices.  Our families say it was perhaps the nicest wedding they have been to.
Thank you once again for your ideas and suggestions; and not forgetting the time you took to travel from one side of Auckland to the other

Leonie and Chris, March 2013

Just wanted to say thanks for being our celebrant we made a good choice the ceremony was lovely!

Jane and Pete, March 2013

We both wanted to say a big thank you for being an amazing celebrant. You helped us through our journey with your calm and down to earth way which helped us stay grounded!

Leisha and Glenn, March 2013

Thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony such a special memory for us and for being the calming influence and helping to settle all of our nerves. We couldn't have done it without you. Matt and I have the most amazing memories of the day and you helped to contribute to that for us!

Janelle and Matt, February, 2013

When we first meet Janice we knew she would be great as our wedding celebrant, she was very welcoming and was not only completely open to our ideas but also gave us fantastic guidance and advice so we could create the perfect ceremony for us as a couple. Janice always made us feel completely at ease and made the process lots of fun too. We know we couldn't have had anyone more perfect to join us in marriage! 

Claire and Jamie, February 2013

We were very glad to have Janice Kingston as our marriage celebrant. With her kind and gentle personality Janice put us at ease straight away with the big job of planning our ceremony. We had fun creating a ceremony to suit us. Janice was very well organised and had everything sorted to the finer detail, and was very helpful with anything we needed help with.

Royce and Aleesha, February 2013

We both wish to convey our most heart felt thanks for your service on our special day. We appreciated the way you really made an effort to get to know us beforehand and took on board everything we told you about what we wanted from our ceremony. The delivery of our ceremony was perfect, your confidence and professionalism was incredible, especially with technical difficulties thrown in. We found you to be genuine, warm, kind and caring, its almost a shame we won't be needing your services again.....

Sam and Ben, January 2013

Thank-you so much for being our celebrant you were so wonderful and are such a lovely lady and so patient with us getting all our information to you.  You did such a wonderful job on our wedding day and we especially loved the poem you did, was so great!!!  We had so many comments on how good you were.

Thank-you for making our ceremony so special, we also loved how there were lots of laughs during it and Glen and I felt so comfortable.

Kara and Glen, March 2013

It was a pleasure having you as our wedding celebrant, you really helped us along as we had absolutely no idea how to go about organising the ceremony.

Thank you for helping make our wedding ceremony something worth remembering!Lily and Jason, January 2013

Thank you so much for writing and delivering a beautiful ceremony for us.  You captured exactly what we wanted our wedding day to be and we couldn't be happier.

Aaron & Amy, December 2012

Yours sincerely

Pauline and Greg, November2012

Thank you so much for your warm, caring approach on our wedding day. You were a calming presence for Andrew and I on a day filled with nerves. You did such an amazing job of our ceremony. Your wording was beautiful, you really painted a picture of what our relationship is all about and what is special to us. You are such a warm caring person and we are so happy to have had you as our celebrant.

Devon and Andrew, November 2012

With all the stresses that come with weddings we were particularly nervous about the ceremony and really didn't know what to expect. It was such a relief to meet Janice who was able to help us figure out exactly what we wanted for our ceremony and customise it to suit us. She was a pleasure to work with and took what seemed like a daunting task and made it fun and effortless for us. We could not have wished for a better experience.  Thanks again!

Sarah & Craig, November 2012

Our sincere thanks to you Janice, for making our wedding day a relaxed and enjoyable day for all. Everyone commented on the lovely celebrant who was so friendly. This meant a lot to us as we are very family orientated. You were professional, well presented and you delivered a beautiful wedding ceremony, one that flowed. We greatly appreciate all the hard work you put into organising our ceremony and personal touches you made during our ceremony – making it about us and our families.  We will certainly be recommending you to all our family and friends.

Charlie and Joshinta, February 2012

The Ceremony was so beautiful, it was more than what we expected, Thank you so much for creating that for us and you were fantastic.

Amber and Valance, February 2012

Janice, once again, we would like to say "thank you so much" for everything you did for our wedding day. We're enjoyed having you, and you were such a great help to us and been an excellent celebrant! I would definitely recommend you to anyone who would like a wedding at their home and also for someone who is the first in their family to organise their wedding.  You prepared us well and kept things organised and on time so that we were not  panicky not knowing what to do and what to do next.  It's been a great pleasure to get to know you.

Jamie and William, December 2011
