About Ingrid Marriage Celebrant Wellington, New Zealand

I love being a celebrant - it's a great job as I get to meet you wonderful people as we work together to create a special ceremony for you and/or for their family and friends.   


I'm a Wellingtonian, married to Michael - we met and married within six months -and still going strong after all this time. We live in Ohariu Valley and have two wonderful adult children and two gorgeous grandchildren.  Family is very important to me.

Over the years I’ve been responsible for managing a number of successful events in the corporate and sporting world (including international events) and I've also organised lots of fun family celebrations, such as the Wiig Family Reunion in Napier and our daughter’s fabulous wedding at Brackenridge.  Life is short so we need to have fun and we celebrate as many occasions as possible. 

I love meeting people from all walks of life and cultures, listening to their life and love stories.  I'm also a keen swimmer, years ago I was a “learn to swim coach” and continued competitive swimming with NZ Masters Swimming eventually holding the position of President for 6 years.  With my love of words I became the newsletter editor for many years. 

When not being a celebrant, I contract in government as a project manager with excellent organisational skills which I'll bring when we work together to ensure your special day is uniquely yours, whether it's a marriage or saying goodbye to a loved one.  And that includes saying farewell to your four legged friends. 

So first things first, let’s meet up for a free no obligation chat to see if I’m the right celebrant for you.  As we discuss what you want included in your ceremony then we can sort out my fees.   Every ceremony is different - I want yours to be special, one that reflects who you are.  There are many unique options available to you both - that's why we need to meet first.  This meeting is free, there is no obligation to book me, but I hope you do!  And I'll even shout the coffee.  

Contact me by either filling in your details on my CONTACT ME page or email, call or text me.  Let's start planning! 

I look forward to hearing from you.
