Jools MacKnight      Wedding Celebrant

Passionate     *     Professional     *     Experienced      *     Intuitive


I have 14 years experience working as a full time Celebrant in beautiful Wanaka and the Southern Lakes region of New Zealand.


My ceremony style is warm, relaxed, modern and informal - without compromising any of the romance and traditions of your wedding.


I have experience, knowledge and tools at my disposal to guide you through all the stages of ceremony planning and development with the minimum of fuss and stress. I will assist you with your application for all legal documentation.


Regardless of the size of your wedding or your budget, my high level of commitment is assured.  I enjoy the intimacy of an elopement as much as a large formal ceremony.


Whether you live in New Zealand  or abroad, whether you have no idea where to start, if you are a same sex couple or even if you are considered an absolute Bridezilla - I welcome and appreciate your enquiry


I have been married to the ruggedly handsome “himself” for about a 100 years but it only feels like 40 !

Apart from being passionate about  my work and “himself”, I love :


                                - a cool crisp kiwi Sauv Blanc

                                - good times spent with friends and family

                                - sunny days

                                - good hair days !!!!


“A beautiful couple + the right Celebrant  = a perfect wedding ceremony”


    Warning   -  I have a wicked sense of humour.'

We had an amazing wedding and celebrations and really appreciated your guidance and support throughout the lead up and on the day. You set the scene and  tone for our wedding perfectly . Many people commented on our lovely ceremony and how great you were. Thanks also for the fantastic audio / music and faultless execution of this. We would definitely recommend you and feel very lucky to have met you“
