Andrea Brady


Hi. I'm Andrea, a registered celebrant and available to conduct weddings (first, second, third or...) , elopements, vow renewals, and baby naming ceremonies. If you are planning a celebration of love and looking for a celebrant who will work with you to create a unique, elegant, and memorable ceremony - let's chat! I'd love to create a ceremony for you.

But first, you probably want to know a little about the person who may be marrying you and see if they are the right 'fit' for you as a couple. I get it. I did the same. I contacted three different celebrants and was quite selective about what I wanted - and what I didn't want.


After many years of thinking about becoming a celebrant, 2018 was the year for me to take the leap! And I love the journey I have been on so far. I've met wonderful people and learned so much. I became a member of Celebrants Aotearoa (Celebrants' Association of NZ, CANZ) in April 2018 was registered as an independent marriage and civil union celebrant in July 2018. 

I like to do things properly and learn as much about a new field as possible, so I have studied with The Celebrants' Training College Aotearoa and awarded a Diploma of Celebrancy. I am now a Validated Member of Celebrants Aotearoa - which means I demonstrate my commitment to providing a professional service as a celebrant and undertaking on-going professional development. This also enables me to conduct registry-style weddings for those who just want the legal elements of a marriage. 

I officiated the marriage of my first couple in December 2018 and since then I have had the honour of joining many more couples in marriage and I love every moment - from the very first meeting with a couple, right through to the pronouncement of ‘Husband and Wife’, or ‘Husband and Husband’, or ‘Wife and Wife’!

I love working with couples to create a ceremony that is a true expression of your love. That means getting to know you both - spending time talking, laughing, planning and importantly - listening. I listen to you and create a ceremony that is as unique and as special as you are.

I’m a storyteller at heart and my love is for written and spoken words. So your ceremony will be personal, elegant, and passionate. After all, it is a celebration of love! I’m easy to work with and have great ideas to help you design a day that will be perfect. I'm a writer, a presenter/public speaker, a planner, and a people person. I'm also calm, confident, adaptable and like a good laugh - qualities that all contribute to my offering as a celebrant. I am super organised and support you with grace and confidence.

I'd love to create a ceremony for you!


The first step is to call, message, or email me and we can meet up to chat about your plans so far. I can't wait to hear from you.

Let's celebrate with love!

From the first point of contact right through to the end, Andrea made the whole process of planning our ceremony stress free and simple. She catered to our every need and want. She wrote the most perfect ceremony that was us to a T! We couldn't recommend her highly enough.
