Hello and welcome to Married By Jodie

Congratulations on your engagement and making the decision to get married in Queenstown – it is quite possibly the most magical place in the world to get married.  

I am a local Queenstown wedding celebrant and MC, who is known for creating a very relaxed (yet professional) atmosphere at weddings and for writing ceremonies that are 100% personalised to the couple.  I ensure every couple I marry feels completely calm on their wedding day by offering unlimited access to me and ongoing support. 

As your celebrant, I will draw on my wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry to ensure your day is everything you dreamt it will be.  I will get to know you through Skype, email, phone and/or face-to-face catch ups so I can create a ceremony that is a pure reflection of you as a couple.  I will arm you with lots of resources and ideas, plus also assist you with writing your vows if needed.  As part of my service I will guide you through the legalities of getting married in New Zealand, assist you to get your paperwork sorted.  If you live overseas, I can help to ensure your wedding is recognised in your country too!  

If you are having a reception and you aren’t sure who to ask (or who you can trust) to host your reception, I am available to stay with you throughout the day/night to MC your reception and speeches as well.  On the note of speeches, I also offer a speech writing (and training) service if you are feeling nervous about doing a speech and need a bit of help!  

I am qualified with a Communications Degree, majoring in Journalism, so writing is something I am very passionate about.  It also means I am able to relate to, and communicate with people from all walks of life.  Before I was a marriage celebrant I had a very successful career in radio, events, marketing and MC’ing.  I have worked as an international tour guide and I have vast MC experience hosting groups and events with anywhere from 10-1,500 people.

I offer celebrant, MC, speech writing and elopement packages.  For more information check out my website.  If you would like to catch up for a no-obligation free catch up give me a buzz +64223566334 or send me an email [email protected].

I look forward to working with you to create your perfect day!
