Hello and welcome!
I’m Charlotte Cummings, a marriage celebrant in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have been a Christchurch marriage celebrant for the last five years, marrying couples locally in Canterbury and throughout New Zealand.
I became a wedding celebrant because I am passionate about a marriage ceremony being the highlight of a couple’s wedding celebration. These days, there are so many fabulous components as part of getting married – days of preparation, enjoying getting ready, and no doubt celebrating with friends and family. A ceremony need not be a boring, cookie-cutter formality – it should be deeply personal and reflective of each couple and their story together.
Another reason I became a celebrant was my desire to support couples to feel relaxed in the preparation for their wedding, and on the day. I pride myself on being highly organized and professional, while also being calm, warm and personable. As a trained counsellor, I am a great asset for calming those nerves! I love supporting each couple to feel relaxed and stay focussed on the love they share.
I am a New Zealand registered celebrant, open to marrying any two people who are legally able to marry in New Zealand.
I welcome you to contact me to discuss your wedding plans. Coffee is on me!
What I Value As a Celebrant:
Hearing the story of the relationship – picking up on the ‘spark’ between a couple and reflecting this in the ceremony
Treating all people with respect and honouring the love between any two people, regardless of age, gender or creed
Supporting couples with ideas for components to include in their ceremony
Creating a ceremony that flows seamlessly
Liaising with everyone involved with your ceremony to ensure all details are taken care of
Being professional and punctual

Charlotte was an amazing marriage celebrant. Through the two years of planning our perfect day she was supportive every step of the way. She has the most wonderful ideas, thoughts and advice.

Charlotte made us both feel excited and prepared leading up to our wedding. Charlotte is warm and nurturing, with an awesome sense of humour. She is also an eloquent and graceful public speaker. Our wedding wasn’t so conventional and she really took the time to find out what kind of ceremony we wanted. Our ceremony was an intimate, inclusive and joyful celebration and Charlotte was an integral part of that.
