We love to work as a team to help make your wedding day as easy and special as possible. Feel free to hire us individually too.
Hi I'M Tina,
I love being a Marriage Celebrant. It is one of the most special roles to be involved in a couples ceremony. I became a marriage celebrant 8 years ago after a friend asked me to marry her and her future husband and I have loved taking ceremonies every since!
I have now had several years of experience creating individualized and meaningful ceremonies for many couples. Your wedding day is about you and your day starts with your ceremony setting the tone for the rest of you day. I love to meet couples and work with them to create a ceremony that is about them and reflects them as a couple. I like to have fun when working with couples while capturing the importance and meaning of the day. Its important to me that you feel comfortable and relaxed from when we meet up right through to the end of your ceremony.
No location is out of bounds for me, I have married couples at the top of the Snow Park in Wanaka through to several friends home gardens, and have been blessed to be asked to do several same sex marriages too. Although I am based in Christchurch I am more than happy to travel to any location around New Zealand.
When I am not having fun being a marriage celebrant I work as a Physio in Christchurch and enjoy being out in the hills on my bike.
Hi I'm Elaina,
I've been working as a Graphic Designer for the last four years and run my own design studio called The Eight Project. Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I remember and graphic design has been an avenue to incorporate this into my work.
It made sense to combine two of my passions to create a one-stop-shop at 'Say I Do' to help you simplify your wedding planning, and lets face it, planning weddings can be a huge task.
Tina and I work together as a great team and I love tapping into her wealth of wedding knowledge and experience. Once Tina finishes with her celebrant duties, she swaps hats and helps out with the photography side of things.
We hope to add a sense of calm and enjoyment to your day and create something that is unique just to you.
