Philippa Thomas

Kia Ora!

Nau mai, haere mai ~ welcome!

My name is Philippa, and I absolutely LOVE being a wedding celebrant! Every wedding is my favourite wedding, every time! I have lived in Queenstown for four years, having moved here from Wellington (and two very busy wedding seasons up there!) in August of 2015, and have been celebranting (a word I totally made up) since 2013.  I love to offer a fun, relaxed and unique approach to weddings , regardless of whether they are big, small, crazy, whacky, traditional or something else entirely. No matter whether you have one guest or 1000, the most important thing is to have the wedding that you want, not the wedding you think you should have! 

As well as being a wedding celebrant, I am also a mother of three beautiful children who keep me on my toes. I speak intermediate Te Reo Māori and love incorporating it (and any language/culture) into ceremonies. I’m a proud New Zealander, a proud ally of the Rainbow community, and, most importantly, a proud and excited celebrant who wants to make sure that each couple gets exactly the wedding that they dream of, whatever that may be xx

he aroha te aroha – love is love ♥
