Poppy was an absolute superwoman! Her bubbly personality and infectious energy filled us with excitement. She took the time to get to know us, crafting a personalised ceremony that beautifully & hilariously captured our love story. Her heartfelt words, filled with anecdotes, wit and memories, had us and our guests laughing and shedding happy tears. With a remarkable level of professionalism and attention to detail, she ensured that every aspect of the ceremony was flawlessly coordinated. Her dedication and genuine care made our ceremony feel even more special. We are forever grateful for the memories she helped create and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a marriage celebrant who is both exceptional and truly remarkable. Thank you for bringing your sparkle, love, and joy to our lives! We love you Poppy!!

I have had the privilege of knowing Poppy for a long time – she’s an incredibly beautiful person both inside and out and when it came to planning our wedding and organising a celebrant, I instantly thought of Poppy. Poppy is a real gem. She is genuine, bubbly, down to earth, warm, kind and keeps things light-hearted and fun – all of the things we wanted our ceremony to entail. She’s incredibly organised, always thinks of the little things and had my back when I needed a tissue part way through the ceremony! She put us at ease and captured and delivered our story and with such warmth and love and we couldn’t have had anyone better to do this for us on our special day. We had so many of our family and friends comment on how beautiful our ceremony was and how it was "us" It’s a very special memory we will hold forever – we can’t thank you enough Poppy.
Anna & Hamish
How do you put into words someone who is able to have such a presence on the most important day of your life, whilst simultaneously allowing things to flow so authentically and meaningfully? From the early stages of planning our wedding, both Hamish and I agreed that our choice in celebrant was crucial to ‘setting the scene’ of our big day as well as creating an atmosphere of warmth and love. Poppy truly exceeded all expectations. She has a way with words – and from listening to our love story, was able to curate the most beautiful script for our ceremony. A script that is locked away with our most precious keepsakes from this day. Poppy’s organisation, guidance, communication and dedication to us was second to none and we had many friends and family comment on her impeccable delivery. Beyond all this, it’s a rarity to meet someone like Poppy these days. It was her warmth, kindness and genuinity that made our ceremony so special. We feel so lucky to have reconnected with you through the most precious time of our lives. Thank you for everything.
James & Georgia
Poppy is such a bubbly and fun person and she really helped make our wedding the best day of our lives! When our previous celebrant fell through 8 weeks before our wedding, we were so lucky that Poppy was available and so willing to help us out. From the first FaceTime call, we knew that Poppy would be perfect for us and after meeting her in person, she made us feel so comfortable and informed. She made the whole planning process fun and was amazing at being there when we needed assistance with our vows. On our wedding day, Poppy had us all exactly where we needed to be and helped the ceremony run smoothly. We are so grateful that Poppy was the one to tell our story as she delivered it beautifully and added so much to such a special moment. We would recommend Poppy to anyone who wants a fun, caring and professional celebrant. Thank you so much Poppy, you’re awesome!
Clare & Scotty
From the first time that we met with Poppy all the way up to walking down the aisle we felt so comfortable and relaxed with her. She makes the whole process so easy and really listens to what you’re really after and helps you to have the most special day - even if that's a ceremony in a cyclone! Poppy is the loveliest person and great at what she does. She stays in contact right up to the very last minutes which is so good. I would highly recommend her for whatever kind of ceremony you’re after as I’m sure she can make it happen for you!
Kat & Jono
Poppy is one of the most down to earth, happy, amazing celebrants you will ever met. From the moment Jono and I met Poppy, she put us at ease and made us feel like she had everything under control. She has an ability to make you feel so comfortable, even on the first meeting. We felt as if we could be ourselves, and that what we were after was exactly as it should be. We were unlucky enough to have to postpone our wedding date due to Covid, and we were so lucky to have been able to find a new date that allowed us to keep Poppy. She was always in contact, checking in to make sure everything was running smoothly, offering her amazing advice and skills. The day went so smoothly all thanks to Poppy, and her awesome organisational skills in being not only our celebrant but also our MC. We seriously struck gold. Thank you Poppy for not only making our day feel special, but for making us feel special. You are a true blessing and we will remember you forever.
Amy & Tom
From the very first time we met Poppy over FaceTime we clicked. She is so happy and bubbly, organised, enthusiastic, relaxed and supportive. We had the most magical wedding day in Clevedon over Easter weekend and we can’t thank Poppy enough for helping to make our day so special.Poppy went over and above to help calm our nerves, assisted us during the vow writing process, made sure that our ceremony ran smoothly and was personalised. We can’t thank Poppy enough and all of our guests said that they thoroughly enjoyed our ceremony and the personal touches. The way that Poppy was able to capture our love story was beautiful and we loved reminiscing with her. Tom and I highly recommend Poppy, she is the BEST!
Amy-Rose & Ethan
From the moment that we first met with Poppy, we instantly clicked. Poppy was full of energy, bubbly and so approachable. We both knew straight away that Poppy was who we wanted to marry us and boy are we glad we made that decision. Poppy was always a breeze to communicate with, and we could always tell she was genuinely interested in hearing from us and being involved in any way possible. Each meeting we had with Poppy was full of lots of chat, smiles and laughter. Poppy was completely on board with how we wanted our ceremony, and had so many awesome ideas. When Poppy sent through her draft of our ceremony, we were brought to tears with how she had captured the essence of our relationship so easily. Our guests absolutely raved about Poppy and her ability to share our love story with comedy and ease. We even had the absolute pleasure of Poppy surprising our guests and ourselves with the gender reveal of our first baby, as I was pregnant! This was such a special moment for us, and it really shows just how amazing Poppy is, that we would choose to have her be the first to know the gender of our baby. We would recommend Poppy to absolutely anybody - you will not regret choosing this amazing woman to be a part of your special day
Jo & Jono
If you’re wanting someone chilled out but who equally is so bubbly, genuinely friendly and calming then Poppy is who you want officiating your wedding. We wanted someone relaxed and that we felt like we gelled with, and from our first meeting we knew we wanted Poppy to be the one to marry us. She knew I was a bit of an anxious person and being up in front of people wasn’t my thing so gave us plenty of guidance on how our vows could be done in a way I’d be comfortable. She walked us through the rehearsal until that felt as natural as it was ever going to feel. I could go on and on (as many guests did) about how right Poppy was for us and our special day and while it’s simple, thank you. Now if only we could do the day a million times over!!
Talya & Jason
We cannot thank Poppy enough for helping us celebrate our day. From the first time we met we felt at ease with her, she made us feel comfortable from that first catch up right through to the ceremony.
Poppy listened and acknowledged our requests/queries without batting an eyelid and went out of her way to make sure we were both happy with the plans for the day as well as helping out with the writing of our vows. She was always available to talk to and she made everything feel so easy from start to finish. Honestly Poppy is one of those people with the most beautiful soul and we couldn't recommend her more if you want someone kind and genuine as your celebrant. Thankyou so much Poppy for all that you did, we are so thankful for you!
Sinead & Matt
We were so lucky to have Poppy as our celebrant for our wedding in January 2021. She was both organised and relaxed, and ensured everything about the ceremony ran smoothly. Before the day she took the time to find out what we wanted from the day, wrote a personalised script and made sure we all knew what we were doing at the rehearsal. Everything ran smoothly on the day due to Poppy's faultless prepping skills! The venue and guests were all impressed with the ceremony and we were absolutely stoked with it, it was perfect. She truly went above and beyond for our wedding and we couldn’t recommend her enough.
Lisa & Dan
Our wedding was when Auckland was thrown back into lockdown, which meant a week out from our big day and we suddenly had no celebrant. However Poppy with her beautiful soul stepped in to help us, and honestly we wish we had gone with her from the beginning! Her approach and style were just perfect and she tailored the ceremony to make it just us - which is incredible as we had only known her a week! Her guidance at the rehearsal proved how proficient she is at weddings and she really had thought of everything. On the day, she was such a calming influence and knew how to run plan B when things went slightly off script. Our day would not have been the same without Poppy and we count ourselves so lucky to have her marry us.
Tayla & Brad
Poppy far exceeded our expectations as a celebrant! She is so warm and friendly and made us both feel so completely comfortable. Right from our initial meeting we felt like Poppy was an old friend, she fit in with us so well and we couldn’t imagine her not being with us on our big day. She was always there to answer any questions that we had and guided us through the entire process. We could not recommend Poppy enough!
Georgia & Alex
We didn’t know much at all about how the whole ceremony thing worked; we just knew we wanted ours to be relatively brief and relaxed, but still meaningful and personal. Poppy got this right from the first meeting. She made the whole process seem fun and easy. Her bubbly, friendly personality was so refreshing and on the day I really think she made both me and Alex feel calm and ready for what was to come, rather than stressed or (too) nervous. I’ve had so many guests rave about the ceremony, how "perfectly us" it was, and that was definitely down to Poppy!! All the little tips she gave us in the rehearsal were super helpful too, again just making it simple and stress-free. Thanks so much Poppy. It’s hard to get across how much you did for us on the day, but you really made it a day we’ll treasure forever.
Kelsi & Jonny
From the very first sit down meeting we loved Poppy, it felt like we were old friends. She is very personable, fun and made what we thought would be one of the more difficult parts to plan, so easy. No matter what sort of ceremony you are dreaming of, we are convinced Poppy would be the best possible choice and will customise your requirements to achieve your perfect ceremony. For us we wanted to have a relaxed, humorous and less traditional style, that really reflected us. Wow did Poppy deliver! Jonny and I are so incredibly happy with how our ceremony went, we wouldn’t change a thing - it was perfect. We are blessed to have found Poppy and have her willing to conduct our ceremony. Poppy, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. All we wish is that others have the foresight to consider you to be their celebrant, so they get the opportunity to have the most amazing memories of their own ceremony too.
Baylee & Kurtis
To put it simply, Poppy was amazing! She was supportive through the entire process, from the initial planning, writing the script and vows and ensuring our big day ran smoothly. Poppy felt like a part of our family and I can't imagine what our wedding would have been like without her! She was easy to work with, was relaxed and kept us grounded! Poppy's wit and humour made our day feel cheerful and personal. We cannot thank Poppy enough for her wonderful contribution to our wedding and would definitely recommend!
Bre & James
James and I were recommended Poppy through a Facebook wedding page. What made Poppy stand out was her amazing, bright and bubbly personality and her ability to capture our love story and put it into words.We love how easy you made our ceremony, from start to finish. We will definitely be recommending Poppy to friends and family getting married in the future. Thanks so much for everything Poppy, you were amazing.
Sarah & Rod
It was our pleasure to have Poppy as our marriage celebrant on our perfect wedding day. She took the time to get to know us and tailored the service to be very personable, with thoughtful words about what was important to my husband and me. Poppy is beautifully friendly and amicable. She fitted in easily with the small family ceremony that we held. We absolutely loved her involvement in our special day. Post Covid border restrictions, we hope to hold a big belated wedding party with our family from Australia; dear Poppy has offered to do a retake of the ceremony. How good is that - that's Poppy taking the extra mile. Thank you sincerely Poppy, and married life is beautiful.
Ash & Antone
We had the very good fortune of coming across Poppy through a friend and booking her for our wedding. We are so grateful we had the pleasure of her presence as our celebrant. Her happy energy, confidence and positivity were noticed and commented on by many. Both my husband and I adore Poppy and would use her again in a heartbeat (fingers crossed that won't happen!)
Teagan & Josh
Poppy you are one of the most genuine, loving, down to earth people I know. We were so lucky to have you marry us on our special day! You made us both feel calm and comfortable, you had everyone blissfully listening to our love story, you made me feel at ease that everything was organised and ready to go once I arrived at the ceremony, even the dogs!! We can't thank you enough for the effort you really put in. You went above and beyond and we are forever grateful. Note: you also look super hot standing up there next to us!
Steff & Shayne
Poppy is so genuine, caring and loving and makes a perfect celebrant. She was so lovely to deal with, and was super organised which made us feel really at ease. We had a really good and thorough rehearsal the day before our wedding, and went over all the finer details - it made the big day run smoothly with no uncertainty. The actual wedding ceremony was beyond perfect. The way Poppy wrote our script was so unique, so personal and we had so many amazing comments from our guests. Poppy had lots of neat little different ideas and tips of things we could do, and we honestly wouldn't change a thing. Everyone thought Poppy was amazing and we can't stop smiling thinking about how much we loved our ceremony! We cannot recommend her enough!
Alex & Jonny
Right from our first meeting with Poppy we felt at ease and had the freedom to make our wedding our day. The script Poppy wrote for us was just perfect. It had just the right about of humour, while still capturing our love for each other. We had so many guests comment on how “us” our wedding was. Our guests also remarked how nice it was to have a young, vibrant celebrant who understood how we wanted our day. The rehearsal really helped calm those bridal jitters too. Poppy helped us work out all those details, even things you never would of thought of yourself. It meant on our big day, we could focus on the things that mattered rather than worrying where to stand or who would hold my bouquet. We couldn’t think of a better person to officiate our journey to husband and wife.
Aroha & Aaron
Poppy was perfect. Full of passion & ideas. She truly put her heart into the entire process ensuring that she executed the day successfully. I couldn't have been more proud of her. What's more special is watching her marry my bridesmaids too! She's really a gift that keeps on giving.
