Geoffrey Trotter

Marriage Celebrant

Geoff has been conducting wedding ceremonies in and around Christchurch for the past 12 years including church and outdoor ceremonies. These wedding ceremonies have often included "theme" and sometimes unconventional celebrations. Couples have included those from America, England, Germany, Scotland, Japan and Australia. And of course many from New Zealand.

Your Wedding or Civil Union Ceremony

Your ceremony should reflect exactly how you both feel. It is about the meanings of the words, the promises to each other, the poems and readings, the songs and music and even the prayers that you want for the celebration of your union.

Ceremonies help us to make real our celebrations and place them in a time and space with purpose. Ceremonies can formally demonstrate and attach the meaning you desire for a particular occasion. Wedding ceremonies have the power and the distinction to shape and bring together the very direction of a marriage.

During our meetings I will listen carefully to you for your wants and needs and then present different possibilities for us to express them on your wedding day.

I genuinely wish to serve each couple as their celebrant and will come without preconceived notions of how your wedding should be. I will begin planning each ceremony with an empty canvas and between the three of us we will fill it with the sort of wedding ceremony you want.

When the final script is completed I want the couple to read it and say: "Thank you, Geoff, this is completely us. This is what we wanted."
