You’ve taken the plunge and gotten engaged.
Thankfully they said yes!

Next step is to choose a celebrant to make your wedding or civil union an entertaining and happy day for everyone.

You have gathered those nearest and dearest to celebrate with you so give them a ceremony filled with humour, warmth and personal touches.

Penny Ashton is a comedienne, poet, actor, improviser AND a Wedding/Civil Union Celebrant. She will craft a ceremony entirely for you and perform it with her trademark style, pizazz and youthful exuberance.

Welcome to our wonderful gay friends, let’s get you married!

So I can say in all honesty that rarest of reviews: They laughed, they cried, they rose to their feet and cheered. Thank you Penny, I will never be able to recommend you highly enough.” Lizzie and Dave, April 2015

“I can’t tell you how many phone calls and emails we’ve received since the wedding saying our much people absolutely loved it… without exception people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.  So many people commented on how brilliant you were.” Amanda and Deb, February 2014

“Penny’s is a unique talent – creative, smart and
deliciously hilarious. She has a wonderful knack of making you feel
completely reassured by her thorough and detailed process yet ever so
slightly suspicious of the twinkle in her eye and her mischievous smile.
Experiencing the ceremony Penny created alongside our guests was a
joyful surprise – our own story felt fresh, colourful and thoroughly
entertaining. If you’re looking for someone who can make your ceremony
the most fun, heartfelt moment of your big day then we can’t recommend
Penny enough.” Nick and Stephen Laing-Kane 2016

Your day, your way.

Themed weddings with a character celebrant also available. Anything from Marilyn Monroe to Elizabeth Bennett to a Medieval Queen (see picture Game of Thrones wedding).

Penny is also willing to travel through NZ to officiate with a smile.

Also though Penny loves to make people laugh, rest assured she affords every ceremony with the respect it deserves. She has performed ceremonies in Hamilton, Coromandel, Port Waikato, Abel Tasman, Christchurch, Martinborough and Wellington.
