John Dunne - Celebrant


From traditional marriages, to same sex and civil unions, I consider it a huge honour and great pleasure to be part of your day. I can be as formal or relaxed as you like, it’s your special day in the sun, so I’ll work round YOU.

You want to get hitched atop a skifield in winter ? Aboard a yacht in a secluded bay ? By a lake or river ? At a special Church ? No problems, as outdoor or out of the way venues are a speciality.

I’ve a sharp eye for detail and as an internationally acclaimed broadcaster and commentator, I can assure you a real sense of occasion.

Yes, let there be humour, let there be whatever you chose, though know always my respect for what it is you wish to achieve is paramount.

Similarly, special celebrations of life, those naming ceremonies and final farewells are passages in time, where I’m humbled to be able to work with you. The renewal of your vows might be part of your plans and I’m very happy to help and plan this sort of occasion as well.

Renewing your Vows

Renewing your vows

I’m also very pleased to offer Civil Union and Same Sex Ceremonies.
New Zealand has much to be proud of especially our robust social conscience. From being the first country in the world to give women the vote, to being among a bunch of others as leaders in acknowledging Gay rights and same sex marriages. Not even our much loved cousins across ‘ the ditch ‘ in Australia can  bring themselves to allow gay marriage…and let’s not even go there, as far as some parts of the so called ‘ free ‘ world are concerned !!
So in keeping with my core principle in all I do, of ‘ Empathy with a sense of occasion ‘, I’m keen to make your moment in the sun, extra special.
I’m also available to offer that special service for a treasured family pet.
As well, if you’re here from overseas, or outside of Christchurch, check out my ‘ tourism connections ‘ and let me help you make this a total experience.
For any of these services, please contact me direct.
