I am Amber Caskey, an independent Marriage Celebrant in beautiful New Plymouth and servicing the greater Taranaki region of New Zealand.
A member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ), I am fortunate to work as a full-time Celebrant and in past 4 years I have worked with many couples and families, in a variety of officiating roles. Click here to read what clients have said about me!
I’m the Celebrant you need if your ceremony is important to you and you want it to be the best part of your big day! It should be a moment that makes you, your family and your guests come away feeling that they have just been part of something really, really special!
So – a bit about me personally! I became a Celebrant to provide a fresher, modern alternative to the traditional celebrancy services that were available. Many skills I have transferred from my professional life to my officiating work, while I raise my young family.
My professional background includes banking and finance, event planning and various people-management positions. Throughout my career I have also had opportunities to undertake professional media training. As such, I am a confident public speaker with highly developed writing and storytelling skills.
And – it is true what they say – that experience really matters! I’ve now met, married – and celebrated – with more than 100 amazing couples, and through those connections have had the pleasure of meeting many more amazing people!
I have learned so much along the way! I love weddings and everything about them, and my own life experiences have allowed me an open minded, empathetic and culturally sensitive approach. I understand that every couple has a different story, family relationships to navigate and culture and traditions to consider. But ultimately, love is love, and ALL love is welcome.
I bring a fresh and contemporary approach with absolute attention to detail to every wedding I perform. As a younger Celebrant, I am collaborative so whatever ideas, guidance or suggestions you need, rest assured that I can offer you great advice.
From the first meeting to my follow-up after your big day, you will be in very good hands with someone that genuinely loves her job. In a nutshell – I will make the process enjoyable, simplified and hassle free.
Please contact me at any time to see if I am available on the day of your wedding, or special occasion. Let’s arrange a meeting, or even chat on FaceTime/Skype so you can be sure I’m the right person to create your ceremony and most importantly, set the tone for your day!
