Friendly and warm voice

Thank you again for the beautiful wedding ceremony and all your hard work leading up to it. We really appreciated your friendly and warm voice, the way you included our back story into the service and how you engaged with the guests with natural humour. We have no reservations in recommending you to other engaged couples. Like us, we're sure they will enjoy your proactive manner, as well as all your suggestions and guidance during the preparation months. You made the whole process very straightforward and organised, and were always quick to respond to our emails questions. No detail was forgotten; you even considered the dress colours of bridesmaids and family so you would fit into the photographs - and you looked lovely in these.

Thank you will never be enough


Lyndsay was an amazing celebrant. She was extremely organised and shared great suggestions when we were feeling a bit lost. It was special knowing that Lyndsay had known me from a young age too - she went above and beyond for us.

Thank you will never be enough, Mr & Mrs Patene xx

A great choice for our wedding day

Lyndsay was a great choice for our wedding day. We decided to have a small intimate ceremony at home in Auckland with 30 family and friends. Lyndsay helped us organise the order of the service, provided lots of guidance, ideas and inspiration and really helped to make the planning, and the day itself, relaxed and personal for us.

She kept us up to date on ceremony progress, was very organised and made sure we didn’t leave things to the last minute. We feel that the ceremony reflected us, involved our guests and we're very happy to have Lyndsay as our celebrant.

Lyndsay is a friendly, relaxed and comfortable person to be able to talk over this important day with. We knew we were in safe hands and we are very appreciative of Lyndsay’s efforts to help create an amazing day that our guests thoroughly enjoyed.

Many thanks again Lyndsay

A recipe for a perfect wedding..

Weather stunning, venue - a magnificent view of both the sea and the mountain from the grounds of Okurukuru Winery, mix in a guest list of visiting Italians plus Kiwis and you are sure to have plenty of tears of happiness with everyone a budding photographer. The bride's arrival was heard well in advance (dad’s classic car) all adding to the glamour of the event – a wedding enjoyed by all!
"We can't thank you enough for all your help and guidance before the day as well as on the day ensuring our wedding ceremony was everything we hoped for. Your ideas, patience, organisation and delivery was amazing and we are truly great-full. We loved that we were able to personalise every part of the ceremony which made it so special for us. I think from the pics there were plenty of tears of happiness from all our guests too! "

Keeping us on track

Having underestimated the demands of preparing for a wedding while working full time, Lyndsay was a wonderful help with suggestions for vows, providing ideas for the order of events & keeping us on track for deadlines. Our day was perfect & we appreciate everything Lyndsay did to help us achieve the best day of our lives.

Lyndsay you are fantastic!

Thank you so much for making our wedding perfect! Living in different towns I originally thought it could be potentially difficult however with your very thorough and clear communication via email it proved to be very easy! Not only did you suggest multiple great options and help you also listened to exactly what we wanted/did not want, which resulted in a wonderful ceremony that left no dry eyes in the room! You are extremely professional helpful caring and friendly and we could tell your heart was in the job from the very start! We can't speak highly enough of you! With love The Gavin’s x

The extra mile...

Lyndsay was amazing as our celebrant. She kindly agreed to be our celebrant with only a couple of short months to get organised. She guided and helped us through every step of the process and truly went the extra mile for us.

We absolutely loved the ceremony she put together - after a meeting with her. She listened and heard what we wanted and we were so so pleased with the outcome.

She helped us with our vows including the right amount of love, heart and humour to capture just how we feel perfectly.

We would highly recommend Lyndsay as a celebrant. She is easy going and fun bit so very professional.

She truly help make our day perfect and allowed us to communicate our feelings for each other in front of our friends and family in a very special way and we will always be thankful for that.

Lyndsay's service was one of the best...

Lyndsay was amazing in helping us to prepare for our wedding day. She went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect. We had lots of feedback from our wedding guests stating that Lyndsay's service was one of the best they had attended.

We would highly recommend Lyndsay to be a Marriage Celebrant at any wedding. She is a true professional.

These 2 girls were fabulous, so grounded, so focused on ensuring their wedding was as much for their guests as it was for them. It really was both a delight and a privilege to act for them.

One of the most amazing days of our lives...


Thank you so very much for helping to make Saturday, 19th April one of the most amazing days of our lives.

Having someone so thoughtful, caring, insightful and intuitive conduct our ceremony made it so incredibly special. The emotion that filled the air was only more fuelled by your wonderful words and articulate presentation. Right from our very first meeting to discuss the plans for the day we felt extremely comfortable with you and loved how you 'got' us and what we wanted our wedding day to be.

The ideas and input you gave on things we hadn't thought of was invaluable. Although we may be a little biased - it was the best wedding we've ever been too!

Much love
Tony & Neil xxx


Acting for friends is in itself a unique responsibility and honour...having to keep it ‘secret’ well that took the task to a whole new level.

I wouldn’t have wanted it any different; knowing the boys as well as I do, meant it was as it should be: with style and pizzazz (understated with the very best in good taste), in a fabulous secret setting, treating the 45 of their nearest and dearest family and friends invited, to an eventful weekend none will ever forget!

A 50th Birthday celebration for Neil, the couples 25th Anniversary and then what no-one knew - Tony & Neil got ‘married’.

THANK YOU!

Lyndsay married Ben and I at Waiau Estate, Urenui on 10 January 2014, this was by far the most amazing and stress free day thanks to our amazing celebrant Lyndsay. 
Lyndsay was lovely from the moment Ben and I meet her. We knew right away she was the celebrant for us. She was open to the ideas we had for our ceremony and also gave us amazing ideas. She was helpful from start to finish giving us a lot of information on vow ideas and things she experienced that worked well. She made our ceremony personal and we got so many kind words about how touching it was. What Ben wrote about his Grandpa & Grandad, Lyndsay said it with kindness and respect and definitely had a few tears with our guests and ourselves.
I am so glad we picked Lyndsay to be our celebrant, we couldn't be happier with how everything went. from the very start to the moment she said, "You may now kiss your bride". 

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

15.2.2014 Husbands!

Being based in Australia, we engaged Lyndsay Loveridge by email and phone and very quickly decided to secure her as our Marriage Celebrant, some 8 months ahead of our Ceremony.
Lyndsay was full of life and very easy to strike a warm rapport with. 
Lyndsay's delivery of information was swift and accurate and always tailored with our Trans Tasman status in mind.
When we finally met Lyndsay, 5 days before the Ceremony, we were relieved and thrilled that she was just as her first impressions via correspondence had lead us to believe.
Lyndsay offered professionalism, options and flexibility to design and deliver the Wedding Ceremony that we had hoped for. 
She was accommodating to our last minute changes, and her recommendations were always in line with our personalities and wishes. 
Lyndsay has a presence that instantly warmed the crowd and she confidently orchestrated our Ceremony with a grace and flair that can only come with experience and genuine emotion.
We are absolutely thrilled to have had Lyndsay act as Celebrant for our same-sex Marriage, and unreservedly recommend her to lovers everywhere.

With warmth and respect,

Jef McGlashan & Wayne O'Connor

Garden Ceremony

We had a quiet garden ceremony at my grandparents property in Inglewood on the 18th of January 2014. Lyndsay did an amazing job as celebrant, helping us to full our wedding up with little unique personal touches, she went above and beyond her role of celebrant, creating a day that we could preserve and remember forever.
We really appreciate all the work she put in - with her advice, guidance, ideas and friendliness towards all at our wedding.
Outstanding work, thank you so much Lyndsay. Our day was more than we could have ever asked for or imagined. It was a perfect day!

Thanks again Lyndsay.

Reflect Us

For us, it was important to find someone who could reflect us. Who could personalise our day, involve our children, friends and family, and make it fun. Lyndsay achieved this for us. 

Lyndsay made it easy, she made it fun, she made it perfect. 

Our friends commented on how wonderful the ceremony was, and how they knew exactly where they were and who they were there for. Not just another wedding. 

We both will be forever thankful for all the work Lyndsay put in. It could not have been more beautiful.

Thank you.

Love Richard & Te Aroha 


Memorial Endorsement

Recently my sister inlaw (and very close friend) Julie sadly committed suicide in Hamilton at the age of 55. I was totally devastated, she was cremated two days after she passed which was out of my control and against everything I believed in and I know she held dear, so I made a promise to her to have a memorial service in New Plymouth were she grew up and had family and many old friends. 
Alone, with my partner offshore and my brother in Waikato Hospital I struggled, I contacted Lyndsay on the Sunday morning and by 5pm that evening she was at my home getting me organised. We decided to have the memorial at New Plymouth Sport Fishing and Underwater Club on the Friday. 
Lyndsay was a god send, her empathy, professionalism and organisation skills were brilliant, I also felt I was dealing with a dear friend. The service went really well, Lyndsay making everyone feel comfortable and adding some very special touches, even adding some light humour, as Julie would of loved.
Thank you so much Lyndsay, I couldn't have done it without your support.

"Lyndsay was our celebrant at our wedding at Ahu Ahu Beach Villas, New Plymouth over labour weekend, Oct 26, 2013. My wife Amanda found Lyndsay by doing a Google search online for New Plymouth based celebrants. Neither of us really knew what to expect but we got in touch with Lyndsay and she made everything so simple and stress free right from the beginning. We are based in Auckland and luckily Lyndsay was up visiting her daughter that weekend we got in touch with her. She arrange a time to meet and we knew within a few minutes of meeting her that she was "the one" to marry us. Lyndsay is very down to earth, friendly, professional, full of excellent advice and dedicated to making the ceremony exactly the way we wanted it. Lyndsay is brilliant with people and made everyone feel at ease, welcome and part of the proceedings. Amanda and I are so pleased we found Lyndsay and couldn't think of anyone better to marry us! She is awesome :) Thanks Lyndsay!"
 

Cheers,

Craig & Amanda 

Lastly, thanks again for helping us out with everything and making it so easy! You were fantastic and it wouldn't have been the same wedding without you! :)

Unique Ceremony

We would recommend Lyndsay to couples who want to create a unique ceremony and want a celebrant who will help you to achieve something that represents your own relationship. She was professional, enthusiastic and reliable.

All of our guests loved it, and most of all we loved it. It was us to a tee. Will never forget that slice in time and the commitments we made.
Thanks Lyndsay.

Only three weeks before the BIG day...

After a series of misfortunes, we found ourselves 3 weeks out from the big day without a celebrant.

Thankfully we found Lyndsay, and upon first meeting her, she was a breath of fresh air. She instantly made us feel at ease and after speaking with her, our wedding planning then felt complete.

Lyndsay delivered a beautiful ceremony that was fitting for us, it had the relaxed feel that we were wanting and we loved our day. We cannot thank her enough for her support she gave at such short notice.
