Ingrid Saxton : Wellington Celebrant
Welcome, my name is Ingrid and I'm a Wellington based celebrant who loves working with people to create memorable, loving ceremonies for any special moment in life.
I would love to work with you to create a wedding ceremony, a vow renewal, welcoming your new baby into this world, or saying goodbye to someone you love.
These can often be once in a lifetime moments and every word spoken should come from your heart. Writing these down and saying them later may not be an easy task, so let me help you express your thoughts and feelings into something unique that reflects you and/or your loved one. Words of love are my passion.
Ceremonies we can create together include:
Baby Naming or Blessings
Funerals & Celebrations of Life
Every significant moment in life is worth celebrating well. Let's meet up so we can discuss what and who you want to include in your ceremony to make it memorable for you and your guests.
Please Contact me to arrange a time to chat to see if I'm the right celebrant for you. This first meeting is free with no obligations to book me.
Professionalism Guaranteed: I’m a registered independent celebrant, and a Validated member of the Celebrant’s Association of New Zealand (VCANZ). I hold a Certificate in Celebrant Studies from The Celebrant School. I'm fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and will work with both Vaccinated and Unvaccinated people - I treat everyone with equal respect and trust.
Funeral: Thank you Ingrid for your kindness, patience, willingness to make changes, guidance, gentleness, we would've been lost without you You're a lovely lady and even though it was because of a sad time our paths crossed, I want you to know it was such a pleasure to meet you.
..... Ingrid's passion and patience for wanting to reflect and incorporate 'us' in our service was wonderful and she guided us through the whole process - including fool proof instructions for applying for our marriage license! She accommodated our requests and captured our love for each other so well. Her warmth towards love and marriage is infectious and regardless of our simplified wedding day we felt on top of the world - and that is not just because we were stood on a cliff top! The service that Ingrid wrote for us was perfect, creating smiles, tears, love and time for reflection as she delivered it without fault on the day. We cannot thank her enough for all her effort, time and kindness as she kept us company on our journey to being announced husband and wife. We recommend Ingrid wholeheartedly.

What an incredible day Ingrid! You poured so much love, thought, time and beautiful energy into preparing and delivering a very special and memorable day for Sofia's naming ceremony. Thank you , it was truly lovely to be part of such a special family celebration .
Just sending a line to commend you on the service you conducted this morning for Anne and her family. You were amazing. Thank you.
I hope you take time to have a well earned cup of tea.
I would recommend Ingrid Saxton to anyone looking for a celebrant. She also acted as Master of Ceremonies at our wedding, a role she carried out with considerable grace and humour.
Thank you so much for your help in preparing and leading Mum's Memorial Service today. Our families truly appreciate your care, compassion and professionalism which has made a difficult time easier than it might otherwise have been.
