Professional and Helpful

Elaine was welcoming and made us feel at ease from our first meeting. She had plenty of examples of vows but also listened to what we wanted as a couple and this helped us plan the perfect ceremony for us. She was fantastic on the day. Friendly, professional and well dressed. Would recommend.

Warm and Friendly

We would highly recommend Elaine Niven to any couples looking to ensure their wedding really will be the best day of their lives. Throughout the process, Elaine was a pleasure to deal with, always both professional and relaxed. Her warm, friendly personality really shone through, and Elaine delivered a service that was emotional, personal, professional and memorable.

Absolutely Outstanding!

Elaine was to become my Mother in Law, so at first we thought we would use another celebrant and give her the day off. Once we had met a couple of other celebrants, we knew we had to go with Elaine. On such a special occasion, it was amazing to have my husband's mother legally marry us. She has a relaxing personality and on the day was invaluable, allowing us time to pause at key moments and even reminding us when we forgot words. All in all, the best we could have hoped for.

Surprise Wedding

Our wedding was a little different. It was a surprise. The guests were invited to a 50th birthday  celebration, unaware that it was going to turn into a wedding. Elaine was very accommodating. Nothing was a problem and she helped us to make it exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend her to officiate at something that is a little “out of the ordinary”.

Make it a pleasurable event

My wife and I have been married for 15 years and like yesterday we remember our wedding day, due in no small part to the care and attention, coupled with the personalisation that Elaine was able to input into our ceremony.

You see, it was not an easy task for Elaine as we were Kiwis living in Southern California flying back home to New Zealand to be married before family and friends.  Elaine managed our various requests and, on the day, despite hurriedly transferring to an indoor setting (thanks Auckland's fickle weather!) it was an amazing experience.

Thank you Elaine… you are awesome.
