Hello and Kia Ora!
Congratulations on your engagement!
I'm Jenn McKenzie, 34, and live in the North Shore of Auckland. By day I work as a Brand Manager and in my spare time I love to officiate couples on their big day! I'm a confident public speaker with years of experience through my business profession and my service work for Rotary International.
Being a marriage celebrant is a privilege and I am honoured to be sharing your special day with you.
What makes me different?
I am committed to you! I don't do this as a full-time business (so you're not just a diary date) but as my passion - it's such a special moment to marry a loving couple!
I adapt my style to suit you and your partner, whether it be a formal large ceremony, an intimate elopement or something a little more casual. I curate a bespoke ceremony that is as personal as your love story - no copying and pasting here. I can travel to wherever your ceremony is and do lots of weddings on beautiful Waiheke Island too.
My easy-going, natural style ensures I can calm any last-minute nerves and I always support my couples through the exciting (and sometimes stressful time that is wedding planning. I am outgoing, personable and want to ensure your wedding is everything you both dreamed it would be!
COVID Policies (because that's a thing now..)
COVID has caused havoc and stress for many couples and I am committed to working with you both (and other vendors) if lockdown has affected your big day. I'm fully vaccinated and happy to work with your preferences in relation to keeping safe due to COVID. Let's hope lockdowns are a thing of the past!
I am excited to hear from you, so get in touch and let's chat about you, your partner and your Wedding Day!
"We can't recommend Jenn enough! From the moment we met her, she was exactly what we wanted - open, funny, engaging, and organised.
We loved how she wanted to make everyone feel involved in the ceremony, and how everything was written up well in advance so we didn't have to worry about it on the day. She was so incredibly helpful throughout the whole process, aiding us with our vows, run through, and general advice.
When the day came, everything went perfectly - Jenn put us both at ease and we had so much fun going through the ceremony, though there were definitely lots of tears. So many of our guests came up to us throughout the night and commented on how wonderful and prepared she was, we honestly couldn't have asked for anything more.
Thank you so much Jenn, you were truly amazing."

“Jenn absolutely made our day! She was prompt and professional, listened to what we wanted for our special day and perfected the most amazing, personalized ceremony that had us in fits of laughter but also teary with emotion. Thank you Jenn for organising us, keeping us on track and most importantly, making our day so special. I’ve been to a lot of weddings but Jenn was by far the best celebrant I’ve seen yet’.
