“It's a great photo; it really resembles the feeling of the day. We are so grateful to have had you with us on our day Mary. The whole process that we went through with you during the months leading up to our marriage ceremony, made the day so much more relaxing and more meaningful to us. The ceremony was one of my most favourite parts of the day. We really tried to make ourselves stay 'in the moment' so we could remember it forever. You were a huge part of our wedding – thank you.”

Sarah & Brad - Christchurch.


My commitment to you ...

Mary Mason - Celebrant


  • I commit to only one ceremony on a day – yours!
  • I will respectfully listen to your wishes and willingly give you a service of your choice.
  • I will promise to make your celebration personal, meaningful and significant. I sincerely believe that this unique occasion is one to be valued and cherished by both of you.
  • As your wedding celebrant I will assist you to make your ceremony all that you could have wished for.


I am a Marriage Celebrant and Civil Union Celebrant registered with the Department of Births Deaths and Marriages, New Zealand.

You have my commitment to be there for you, assisting you during the time leading up to your wedding and during your marriage ceremony.

In preparation for your ceremony I like to meet with you and hear in your own words what is important to you. For couples living overseas, we can ‘meet’ on Skype, or communicate via email.

I create a personalized ceremony for you, listening to your story and weaving it into a meaningful and sincere celebration of marriage.

As a celebrant I embrace my role in providing a service for those wishing to have a Same-sex Marriage Ceremony.

Based in Christchurch, I am readily available to meet with you as your marriage celebrant, and travel to the wedding venue of your choice, wherever in New Zealand – including locations in and around Christchurch and surrounding areas of Canterbury such as Hawarden, Methven, Rangiora, Akaroa, Hanmer Springs and Ashburton.

As a celebrant I am available for all occasions that mark a time of transition in our lives including Marriage, Name-Giving and Funeral Ceremonies.

All enquiries welcome ...
