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!
Hear it for yourself...
"Jenn was our fantastic celebrant and MC for our big day and she was perfect. From our first meeting we instantly clicked with Jenn - she is a lovely person to talk to and takes time to get to know you.
Our parents and guests also all loved Jenn's wonderful personality and witty jokes. She is someone you can befriend, which really helps on the big day.
Jenn is very confident and organised and that put us at ease and we knew we were in good hands.
On the day Jenn managed the time so well and everything ran smoothly without any hiccups. Our wedding had some guests taking a bus, some guests with kids leaving early by car and Jenn handled all this without a fuss. We as the bride and groom didn't have to worry about anything at all because Jenn always reassured us and kept us calm. Couldn't have asked for a better celebrant and MC!
Thank you so much!"
