Marriage Celebrant

Geoff Smile

I am professional photographer here in Christchurch and although I also have an Advanced-Trade Electrical Service Technician qualification, my passion is for the opportunities I have had where I can provide something back to our community. This includes my joy at being a Marriage Celebrant and my delight of being a Toastmaster.

I am also a father, a public speaker, a photographic artist and the bloke who puts the rubbish out.

You will also find me enjoying spending time my wife, Dianna, with our young son, Mitchell, and of course, our two dogs Lucas and Poppy.

I have been a Toastmaster since 1992 and now enjoy the challenge and rewards of the leadership track. I especially take pleasure in meeting people and watching them grow with the Toastmasters programmes. I am very proud to have lead New Zealand to Distinguished District as District Governor during my term 2007/08
