Anne Withington

Hello. My name is Anne Withington, and I’m an experienced Independent Celebrant based in beautiful Queenstown. Being a Celebrant is a fantastic “hobby” for me, not a “job”.  I just love happy occasions and I have no time pressures which means I can really enjoy working with people to create a professional, personalised ceremony that reflects your individual personalities, backgrounds and interests and most importantly, is what you want.

Whether it’s a marriage/ civil union/ name giving/ vow renewal ceremony, I recognise that it’s my job to make sure your ceremony flows smoothly, so that you can just get on and enjoy your special time. The Queenstown Lakes District has so many beautiful indoor and outdoor venues available. Whether you’re planning a large formal occasion or a small intimate ceremony, I’m happy to travel to your chosen venue, or to help you find the perfect spot if the most common venues are already booked for your chosen date and time.

Please contact me by phone or email to see if I’m the right Celebrant for you.

“Anne: you did an outstanding job of acting as our celebrant. Firstly the special care and attention to detail which you invested in it all; the way you interacted with us about its content, listened, offered helpful suggestions and took on board our concerns. Secondly the style with which you carried off the whole event. People were so complimentary about it all, not least because they correctly perceived the special nature of it all.”

“Thank you so much for hosting such a lovely ceremony for us. We loved the ceremony – it was so personal, fun and exactly what we wanted. We’re sure you’ll have many satisfied customers in the future.”

Celebrant in Queenstown since 2016.
