Marie was glowing when she walked into Dockside with her parents and sister. Rory looked very suave and his nephew was adorable in his suit as the ring bearer. There was lots of laughter throughout the ceremony and when Rory kissed his bride there was cheering from outside. A boat was berthed right beside the venue and everyone was cheering clanking their glasses, brilliant!
“Kesh was our celebrant for our wedding and I can’t sing her praises highly enough! We wanted a casual, fun ceremony and Kesh made sure that happened for us. She was friendly , professional and supportive throughout the whole day from planning to the big day. Kesh took care to ensure that not only were we comfortable, but our guests too - we had so many comments about how relaxed and sweet the ceremony was. Thank you Kesh for making our day so wonderful!”
LISA & MARK
Bookrock | January 2017
As soon as I met Lisa, I knew we were going to get along well. Mark’s daughter was part of the ceremony and Olive the labradoodle was the ring bearer. Lisa’s parents were out from Scotland. Lisa flew in by helicopter whilst Mark was nervously waiting. Everything about this wedding was amazing, the emotion, the location, the relaxed and fun vibe, not to mention Lisa’s fabulous designer shoes.
“Just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for being our celebrant on Friday. Mark and I were blown away by the service. It was absolutely perfect and even better than I could have imagined. We really appreciate all the hard work you put into the service and it really shows on the day."
Adele & Hugh
Tirohana Estate | February 2018
Just before the guests arrived the rain stopped and the sun shone down. The MC was wearing the most amazing multi coloured suit. When Adele walked through the vines with her girls behind her she was beautifully composed and stunning. It was an awesome ceremony and a privilege to be a part of it.
“Kesh was an amazing celebrant, she was professional and relaxed, just what we needed on the day! She was very flexible with arranging meeting times and locations. She wrote a great personalised ceremony that was touching and entertaining. I would recommend Kesh to anyone I know that is getting married.”
Ingrid & Matt
River Terrace Masterton | April 2018
From the moment I met Ingrid & Matt I knew it would be the most emotional and perfect wedding day. Their vows were amazing and said with so much love. Ingrid made her dress which was white and different tones of blue, gorgeous. Their friend played his guitar and sang throughout the ceremony, everything was perfect, it was a real honour to be part of it.
Pippa & Simon
Staglands | March 2018
Pippa & Simon arrived together; Pippa was stunning. Only minutes before the torrential rain stopped for the outside ceremony with the beautiful trees and birds as the backdrop. There was laughter throughout the ceremony and everyone had a perfect time. The Mum’s were part of the ceremony which they loved. Twenty minutes after the ceremony the rain started again, the timing was perfect.
Charlotte & Marc
Martinborough | January 2019
Charlotte & Marc are two peas in a pod. I was so excited when Charlotte confirmed me as their celebrant because she’s such an awesome lady. Charlotte really wanted her horse Sansa in the wedding photos, when everyone clapped in the ceremony Sansa trotted over. I paused the ceremony to get the perfect photos, it was a magical moment. These two have so much love for each other and it was a very emotional and happy wedding, relaxed at their home in the beautiful Wairarapa.
Kat & Matt
Family Backyard | January 2019
From our first meeting at the café I knew I wanted to be a part of Cat & Matt’s special day with their son Liam. Cat & Matt were so down to earth, relaxed about everything and genuinely happy people. They were married in the backyard with the most immaculate and stunning gardens as the backdrop.
I had suggested ways to include Cat and Matts son into the ceremony and he was very happy. Everything about this wedding was perfect and Cat you looked stunning; I loved your dress.
“We had such a great time; you were fantastic and perfect for us and our intimate wedding. Matt's mum commented on how great you were also.”
ANGE & MARK
The Dowse | February 2019
Angela & Mark were married in an intimate wedding with their nearest and dearest family and friends. Their young son was oblivious to his parents tying the knot, playing on the floor with his toys. The vows were emotionally charged and beautiful. Angela was one of the most laid-back brides I’ve met, creating a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
AMANDA & SAM
Ohariu Farm | April 2018
Amanda and Sam were awesome from the moment I met them at our first catch up. The most down to earth relaxed and fun-loving couple. The day of the ceremony Sam wound me up saying I had tears in my eyes before the ceremony, ‘just you wait’ I said. Sure enough, when Amanda walked in with her amazing presence Sam had the tears. There was so much laughter throughout the ceremony, it was brilliant and just what they wanted. Even the father of the bride roared with laughter at one point and said it was the perfect Segway into his speech later.
MARION & SCOTT
Mount Cook Aoraki | October 2018
I was excited to be marrying a close friend. The huge bonus for me was going up in the helicopter to marry Scott and Marion on the mountain. As soon as I got out of the chopper my leg went straight down into the fluffy snow. It was freezing but spectacular and my biggest fear was dropping the rings in the snow, luckily that didn’t happen.
We had a second ceremony with Scott & Marion’s closest family and friends beside Lake Tekapo which was also freezing but perfect.
“Kesh was the professional celebrant we were looking for. She could read the room and engaged our friends and family with candour and charm.”
NINA & BEVAN
Silverstream Retreat | February 2018
Nina & Bevan were so down to earth and appreciative of everything I did. They were so happy and it was amazing having 200 guests. It was a beautiful day in an open area and everything went according to plan.
“Kesh was brilliant from our first meeting and the day of our wedding could not have asked for a better celebrant my wife Nina clicked with Kesh straight away which made it easier. Her passion for what she does was awesome she made our day memorable thank you Kesh”
LUKE & KIM
Zealandia | October 2018
It was freezing on the day in the most beautiful venue amongst the nature and birdlife at Zealandia. Kim was stunning and relaxed with her fabulous friend beside her when she married the love of her life, Luke, with their son right beside them.
“You were amazing and made it all a little less awkward and nerve racking than what people told us it would be!!!! I definitely felt calm and just excited above all else!!!!”
