A Perfect Wedding Just For You

Background Image

Everyone a little bit different and unique

I have been a wedding Celebrant for 12 Years and love meeting new couples and helping them shape a ceremony that is right for them. I have married same sex couples, mixed couples and couples from all over the world. Everyone a little bit different and unique.

A Happy and Love Filled Event

Lets Meet Up and Get Started

It is always such a happy and love filled event. My local area is Bream Bay however I have travelled further and will continue to do so. I bring to the wedding a genuine Scottish accent which given Waipu’s history seems a good match. Lets meet up and get started.

People     Margaret Crichton - Celebrant

  • Margaret was a great choice as Celebrant for our wedding. Margaret was fantastic, she gave us some brilliant advice and samples of vows etc and waited very patiently for me to get my act together and get them to her at pretty much the last minute. She came up with a really cool little speech for our best man to give which very much related to our lifestyle (dogs). We wanted an informal but personal ceremony and she was fantastic with that. We would definitely recommend her. Wedding Date: February 11, 2017

    Gail - Bride
  • From the day I started planning my wedding Margaret was there. I say wedding legally it was a Civil Union, but it was still a wedding to me. Margaret was professional, compassionate and resourceful. She suggested ideas and worked hard to tailor the service to our specific requirements. The rehearsal went superbly with Margaret leading from the front. Margaret's composure and organisation meant that the day itself also went flawlessly. Margaret was not only our celebrant she was also our MC during the reception and she personally engaged with all of our guests. As soon as it's legal we will be getting married and the first person I will call will be Margaret.

    Barnaby James - Groom
  • I have been to many weddings and never before have I felt so much a part of the ceremony. Margaret took time to personally get to know about the bride and groom, their history, their funny little stories and made all of the bridal party feel so relaxed and enjoy the ceremony instead of being on edge. She took special time out to welcome all of the guests who had travelled some distance , on behalf of both the bride and groom. Margaret also listened to what the bride and groom wanted even although it was not the conventional text and made sure she included this in her wonderful readings. There were many tears of emotion, joy and of laughter and I know from talking to many of the guests they also felt the same way. Through emails and personal meetings Margaret made the Bride and Groom feel relaxed, special and instilled the confidence in them and made them look forward to their special day. Thank you Margaret from the bottom of our hearts for helping us have a day we will never forget. You are the “Perfect Celebrant” You were amazing.

  • Mags is a very special family friend, she married my brother and his wife in January 2015 and having known her so long and having a preview to her in the role of celebrant we wouldn’t have chosen anyone else! Mags was fantastic at guiding us through writing our own vows and advising on how to include our blended family of four daughters in the ceremony. On the day- wow she looked amazing! I was so thankful for her calm confidence and direction, it seems even the most laid back of weddings does need a bit of direction and Mags skilfully lead the way. Completely unflappable Mags navigated tears, laughter, ghostly gusts of wind and a sudden rain shower. Particularly Mags included my recently deceased Father in Law into our ceremony beautifully, something we had all been bracing ourselves for in our very recent bereavement. Most brides hope to have a unique ceremony- mine was totally unique thanks to Mags’s creativity and I loved it! I’m a midwife and anyone who knows me can say it’s a huge part of my life. A complete surprise to me Mags incorporated a “call the midwife” theme into my ceremony using quotes from the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, dressing to the nines in a stunning 1950’s outfit and best of all secretly arranging that our wedding rings were “delivered” via bicycle tucked into the swaddling of two “newborn” baby dolls in the front basket. I absolutely loved my wedding day, the best memories of all are from our fantastic ceremony. Thank you so much Mags!

  • We were seeking a celebrant who could deliver a service for a very informal, intimate wedding and we were just delighted with Margaret! We met with her beforehand - she asked some questions and was so friendly and warm - and we got to know her a little too. The wedding ceremony was just perfect. Margaret made us feel so at ease and set the tone exactly as we’d hoped - light, fun and informal. She ensured that there were no awkward gaps - bringing us right through the ceremony itself, the signing of papers, the toast with some champagne, and the cutting of the cake. She went above and beyond and we just had the perfect day. Our guests also had nothing but praise for lovely Margaret.

    Emily Pavey
  • My wife and I were very pleased with Margaret’s ability, knowledge, professionalism and kindness. She really made our wedding very special and we would recommend her to anyone that wants a celebrant who really cares about what she is doing.

    Richard Russo
  • We were so lucky to have Margaret involved in our wedding. She personalised the service to accommodate our particular requirements and the feedback from our guests were that it was the best wedding they have been at in years!

    Melanie Nicholson
  • Scott and I cannot begin to thank Margaret enough not only for making our day incredibly special with the way she lead the ceremony; but also with he patience when things didn’t start at the time they had been planned to. Margaret had all of our guests in tears with the way she carried out our ceremony and the blessing of the hands after we exchanged our rings was a favourite with our guests. We are also thankful to Margaret for making our wedding planning much less stressful by emailing us examples of vows and readings. I can't stress enough how much our guests loved Margaret and how they all said they would recommend her, and how comfortable she made us both feel through out the ceremony. Our son Reece was also a big fan, as Margaret gave us ideas on how we could include him and the other children into the ceremony; so they wouldn’t get bored waiting.

  • Mags is a wonderful wedding celebrant. We had already attended another wedding she officiated at last year and were very impressed. When our nephew decided on Mags as celebrant we couldn’t have been more pleased. Our house was the venue for the reception. Mags has a great personality and she put Blair at ease while he waited for Isabel to arrive. The ceremony was lead beautifully by her with a lovely balance of seriousness and humour and soon the couple were relaxed. The ceremony was carried out in two languages and Mags took this in her stride also. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mags as a wedding celebrant.

    Pat Hunter
  • We are so happy that Mags was the celebrant at our wedding. After meeting with us, and providing us with suggestions and ideas, she helped us to work out how we wanted the ceremony to go. On the day, the weather was AWFUL and we had to change venue. Mags made it all better though, with her great sense of humour she made us all feel relaxed and happy. We wanted a very relaxed ceremony, which Mags delivered perfectly, and I had so many comments from guests about how wonderful the ceremony was, and how Mags did such a great job. I would highly recommend Mags to anybody looking at getting married in Northland.

    Brenda Wells
  • Mags was the most personal, friendly and calming influence on our day up in Waipu. She even suggested and arranged a rehearsal that made things so much easier and less nerve wracking. I would highly recommend her for the way she senses the couples dynamic and creates a vibe on the day suited perfectly to you and your guests. She has a great sense of humour too!

  • We chose Margaret as the celebrant for our wedding in Whangarei earlier this month, and we couldn’t have wished for a better person to marry us. We were keen to incorporate some Scottish elements into our wedding and Mags had some great ideas and it was lovely to be married by a fellow Scot. From the moment we met her, she was approachable and easy to talk to. She was very organised and guided us in making decisions for what we wanted on the big day and kept us right on all the formalities we needed to be aware of. On the day, she did a great job of putting us both at ease and making sure everything went smoothly. We would happily recommend Margaret to anyone looking for a marriage celebrant. Thanks!

    Cathy Erstich
  • Wonderful, warm lady. Very professional and well spoken. We had a magical ceremony and Margaret was the person who facilitated it. We highly recommend Margaret to anyone.

    Caryn Spencer
  • Margaret did a fantastic job as our wedding celebrant. She was very organised, professional and helpful with a great sense of humour. We both had such a great day and are very pleased we chose her as our celebrant. Highly recommend to all!

    Kelly C
  • Margaret truly made our day so special. All our guests commented on the beautiful ceremony she delivered and the humour she added tot he occasion. Margaret was great to work with every step of the way and delivered a service that was true to us and the occasion. I would recommend Margaret to anyone.

    Kristen Peoples
  • I have know Margaret for almost as many years as I’ve lived in NZ and she has been an amazing support to me during the most challenging time of my life. When we decided to get married there was no debate Margaret was our Lady. We planned to have a very low key wedding day, but as always things get out of control. Margaret is extremely organised, she kept in constant contact leading up to the wedding, helping every step of the way. I added a reading right at the last minute, but you would have thought it was the plan all along. I would recommend Margaret to everyone - she had all 80 guests feeling involved and hand picked for our most amazing day.

    C Fuge
  • Margaret was a fantastic celebrant who got everyone involved and was very personal, a very lovely lady. I would recommend her to anybody.
