Hello and Kia Ora!
Congratulations on your engagement!
I'm Jenn Wong (née McKenzie), 35, 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. I recently got married and know the excitement and stress a wedding can bring!
Being a marriage celebrant and/or emcee 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 believe love is love, and have the privilege to conduct both marriage ceremonies and civil unions.
I adapt my style to suit you and your partner, whether it be a formal large ceremony/reception, an intimate elopement or something a little more casual. I curate a bespoke ceremony and reception script 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!
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."

Hear it for yourself...
"Jenn was an amazing MC! She went above and beyond, and we received so many compliments on the night about Her. She communicated well and made sure the order of events ran smoothly on the evening. She thought of things that I had not even thought about. I would highly recommend hiring Jenn as your MC.
Thank you Jenn!"
