Ingrid Saxton :  Marriage Celebrant

After 5 wonderful years of marrying couples and/or helping people say goodbye to loved ones, I've reduced my celebrant services and now only provide either a Registry ceremony ($90 as set by BDM) or a Personalised Petite ceremony for a modest fee, depending on when and where.  Preferably here at my home in Ohariu Valley, Wellington (6km out from Johnsonville).

My Personalised Petite ceremony is very similar to a Registry Ceremony, but sweeter as we share a little more of your love story with your guests and you can get married any day of the week - subject to my availability. 

If you wish to book my services please contact me via email to see if I'm available on your preferred date.


Kindest regards

Ingrid Saxton

Testimonials - see more on Google was the celebrant for our wedding of around 100 people this year (Sep 2022). We knew when we met Ingrid that she was going to be great, however Ingrid exceeded our expectations. Ingrid went above and beyond for us to make sure our special day was as smooth as possible. Ingrid was so easy to get in contact with and really got to know us as a couple to ensure our ceremony was extra special. We can not thank you enough, and our guests are still commenting on how lovely our ceremony was. Highly recommended.

..... 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.

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.

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.


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.
