About Me

Hi, I’m Jaq. Warmest congratulations!

How absolutely wonderful that you’ve found your forever person! Lucky you!

Love is such a precious thing and the connection between two people, whoever they may be, deserves to be cherished.  Your wedding should be as unique as you are.​

Now you get to embark on the exciting adventure of planning the wedding day you’ve dreamed of.

I’m an actress, television director and marriage celebrant.

I spent six years acting on the nation’s favourite television programme, Shortland Street and now work as a director on the show.​

After twenty years as an actress and performer, it’s fair to say that being in front of an audience, is my happy place.

Being a wedding celebrant brings together so many things I love to do.


Storytelling, public speaking (I’m also a radio voice artist), I adore the creative process of crafting people’s ‘journeys to love’ into beautifully unique wedding ceremonies that reflect you and your partner perfectly, capturing your individuality and celebrating your love in a way that you will treasure forever.

It’s a privilege to nurture and guide my couples through the entire process from our first contact until you are walking down the aisle as a married couple, after the ceremony you’ve always wanted.

I’m a registered Independent Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant in New Zealand. I’m based in Auckland but love a destination wedding so I’m happy to travel anywhere in Aotearoa … wherever you want your special day to be. So let’s start chatting about your happily ever after! 

I look forward to making your wedding dreams come true.
