Hi, I'm Adrienne and I am a marriage celebrant​ registered with the NZ Department of Internal Affairs. 

I live in Auckland and love working as a teacher. 

I am an open-minded and inclusive person and welcome the opportunity to work with couples to create a wedding ceremony that reflects them, their lives and contributes to a day of unforgettable memories. 

On this site, you will find information about the process of creating a wedding ceremony and a couple of different pricing options. 

Please get in touch with any questions.

Thanks, Adrienne

Adrienne Faulkner





Weddings can be brief and to the point, longer with poems, prayers or songs and somewhere in between. They can be intimate with a small crowd or intimate in a big crowd. Essentially it can be how you want it to be. There are a couple of legal requirements that I need to do, but these can be woven into your ceremony with ease. 

We will work together to find out what you would like your ceremony to include and I will write it so it flows and reflects who you are.  You apply for the licence, you and your witnesses sign it and I will submit it immediately after the ceremony. 

Applying for a Marriage Licence in New Zealand - information here.

There is a fee to do this which is separate from the Marriage Celebrants fee. This can also be done online here.

Once you have received your licence you must bring both copies to the ceremony.

Adrienne was everything we could have wanted in a celebrant. She ran our ceremony without missing a beat, she quietly gave us reminders to breathe to help us both relax so we could take in and enjoy the moment. The ceremony was exactly what we both dreamed it would be, so many people commented on how beautiful and perfectly us it was. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect fit. Anna and Dave, Jan 2019
