Weddings

Syd Walker JP Celebrant Auckland

Congratulations, you are getting married! This is a very exciting and happy time for you. I know that all couples have their own unique style, so let’s make sure your special day is perfect for you in every way.

Whatever time of day, whatever the season, be it in a garden, on the beach, in a church, on a ski field, or in a forest; an intimate occasion for your closest family and friends, or a guest list of hundreds; formal, informal, non-religious or with aspects of religion brought in – there really are so many options available to you. I will work alongside you to create a bespoke ceremony, which is engaging, memorable and filled with joy and love.

I am happy to do weddings at a moment’s notice if I’m available, or you can book me for up to a year and a half in advance. I would be happy to tramp through a forest, wear a dress or anything else that complements your theme and incorporate something from your religious or cultural tradition. I am based on the beautiful North Shore of Auckland, but happy to travel to wherever I’m asked.


Same Sex Marriage

Finally, equality for all. Let’s celebrate!

I am happy to perform your same sex ceremony – a ceremony to celebrate the commitment made by two people who love one another.

Would you like something small and intimate, or do you want your ceremony richly layered and full of colour?

Let’s work together to delight and surprise your guests, crafting a ceremony that is meaningful and unique for you.


Funerals

My heartfelt condolences. What a sad and difficult time this can be.

Funerals are an opportunity to express grief, say a respectful goodbye and to mourn a loved one’s passing. But it is also a time to give thanks and a time to celebrate – their uniqueness, their achievement, their life.

I will help you create a service that reflects your beliefs. Would you prefer a religious service, or a service without any religious reference? I am happy to deliver a service with as little or as much spiritual content as you wish - regardless of whether the service is a cremation or a burial.

It would be an honour to help you create and perform a personal, heartfelt service that captures the spirit and essence of your loved one.


Naming Ceremonies

New life. What a beautiful, joyous thing to celebrate.

I would love to help you welcome them into your life, express your love and share your hopes and dreams with them, your family and friends. Perhaps you’d like to include something symbolic into your ceremony – lighting candles, planting trees, reading poems or creating a keepsake book of good wishes for years to come.

Whether you would like something sweet and mellow, or upbeat and quirky, it would be my absolute joy to help you create a memorable ceremony and a day filled with love.
