Tania is the best Celebrant/ MC we could have hoped for. Her professional services really made our day run smoothly.
We are grateful for all her efforts and no doubt will use her services again for other events. We highly recommend her services!

Tania!! Meng and I were beyond words as to how grateful and happy we are for having you as our celebrant and MC. My family and friends were all high praises about you! There was never a dull moment at the reception dinner. When we first met Tania, I just thought there’s no way I would go for any other celebrant!
We just clicked. She has a very warm personality and very easy to talk to. She’s very strong about building relationships with her clients. We’ve talked a few times leading towards the big day. It really did make a difference on the day as we felt so comfortable and relaxed having Tania officiating our wedding. There were no awkward moments.

I know we were in good hands having Tania and not just any other celebrant who could’ve just turned up on the day. Her wealth of experience was shining through when she gave us suggestions that we haven’t even thought of. She always make it clear that it is our day and not anybody else’s hence we felt the sincerity of the entire ceremony. She made sure that our ceremony is personalised. As an MC, I love how she is completely calm giving instructions. Without Tania, I think everyone will just be all over the place! She is so clear hence our guest know what to do or where to go next. She has her way of making people listen and she holds a great balance of being funny without being over the top. The ceremony was short and sweet, no extra fuss (which our guests appreciated a lot) but definitely special.. and I love that everything was just moving on as per scheduled in our timeline. Thanks Tania for keeping things right on time and keeping things organised.

— Genevieve and Tom, January 2019.
Tania was a perfect choice as our celebrant this summer. She was approachable and accommodating and so easy to communicate with. Our ceremony was beautiful – although laid back, Tania managed to bring a wonderful gravitas combined with both romance and humour. Most of our post-wedding compliments concerned our wonderful ceremony and celebrant. We highly recommend!

 

— Steve and Danielle, January 2019.
My husband and I are from the United States and we decided to have a very small, intimate wedding in New Zealand. This meant most of our wedding planning was done via research on the internet and a hope that things would just work out by the time we got to New Zealand and walked down the aisle. We found Tania as part of our online research and could not have been more happy with the service she provided! She was incredibly kind, warm, and helpful and went out of her way to make sure the wedding was exactly what we were imagining. I truly believe that our wedding would not have been as amazing as it was without her guidance. Some of the big things she helped us with include: making sure that everything went well with the marriage license registration, speaking with officials to ensure we could get married on the beach of our dreams, and providing a lovey ceremony draft that incorporated part of the New Zealand culture but she also was very welcoming and encouraging to our ideas to make the ceremony fun, memorable, and personalized to us.

Throughout the entire wedding planning time she was very communicative, quick to respond to our questions via email, and made us feel even more excited about our plan. When we were finally able to meet her in person a few days before the wedding she was even more amazing, warm, and welcoming! She is very experienced with all types of weddings and helped us make decisions on minor parts of the ceremony that we had not even realized would be something to think about. On the day of the wedding the ceremony ran very smoothly thanks to all of her planning and executing efforts. She also connected us with our amazing photographer, Lisa Monk. We had such a great experience with Lisa that I would trust Tania’s suggestions for other services, if you are planning on having a larger wedding. In addition, since she is also a tour guide and she was also able to provide us with a lot of information about New Zealand in general and gave us tips on what to do on the North island while we were in town. We highly recommend Tania as your future wedding celebrant!

Tania is an angel for me and my wife. We were about to get married the next day and our celebrant was really sick and admitted to hospital. We were stressing out about everything because both of our families were ready for the wedding where some travelling here for our wedding. Not only that but we couldn’t find any other celebrant and a venue which we were plan to do at the church but everything was not as we planned. Lucky one of my friend knows Tania and contacted her – she was really nice and kind and do everything for us even let us do our wedding at her beautiful wedding venue. We could not thank her enough for being a lifesaver where she makes everything happen as we wish. I would highly recommend Tania to be your celebrant on your wedding as she is very good at her job and makes life easier.

Tania, we cannot thank you enough for your amazing experience. I knew from the first time I met you over the telephone you were the perfect celebrant to marry us!
Tania has a vibrant persona, very professional, super friendly and so helpful. We had the most intimate garden ceremony and Tania tailored our ceremony to our specific needs. Even to this day we have guests raving about her awesomeness! If you are looking for a celebrant who is fun, articulate, flexible and listens to your needs – She’s your Gal! Thank you for all your support Tania, we will forever be grateful.

— Emma and Shahab, February 2018.
Cannot recommend highly enough! She was an amazing celebrant. She made it such a calm & smooth journey. She made it so personal too. I wish there was more stars to rate her as she deserved a million!!!

We had the best experience with Tania! From the first time we met her she made us feel comfortable and at ease. She was approachable and easy to talk with and engage with regarding our ‘love’ story and how we wanted our day to go. Ours was a vow renewal ceremony so a little bit different from a normal wedding but she gave us a lot of ideas which we used, and the day went perfectly ! We highly recommend Tania as a celebrant, she is a warm and caring person thank you Tania for making our vow renewal ceremony so memorable

— Krystina and Marty, January 2018.

Tania was our celebrant and MC for our wedding in Jan and from the very beginning she was great! She travelled out to meet us close to home to chat through things and meet face to face and from then we knew she would be a perfect fit for us and would help to make our day special. I had no idea how to go about the legal process behind the wedding and from the first email, Tania made it nice and easy. Easier than I ever thought it could be! Her relaxed yet highly professional approach was perfect for us and on the day, everyone loved her and everything ran smoothly. Tania, thank you so much for all of your help! What a great day!

“We’ve had a very pleasant experience with Tania. She’s very professional with a caring touch and made our day very special. At the time of looking for a celebrant we also still needed a small and intimate venue. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that Tania has a venue at her house in Hillsborough. She arranged the catering for us as well. Our day was very special and went down smoothly. It’s really been a blessing that we got her as our Celebrant.”

We can not thank Tania enough for being our celebrant. From the moment we met Tania we knew she was the celebrant for us. She helped us to create the most memorable ceremony our families and ourselves will never forget. So professional yet warm and personal we always felt at ease throughout the entire process.
We only wish you had stayed longer you must have been so busy 🙂 Aroha nui Tania.”

“Thank you for making our special day such a memorable occasion.  Our wedding day was so relaxed and happy and a big part of this was due to your approach which had just the right balance of humor, confidence, light heartedness and sincerity.  Many of our guests were highly complimentary of you.”

 

— Derek and Paulette, September 2017.
“I picked Tania because she was so quick to reply to all my emails and showed a real interest in our wedding planning. Plus she gave a lot of helpful information before even meeting her to decide weather to go ahead with her. Of course I had already decided to go ahead with her because of her quick & helpful advise and guidance. Yes we would recommend her. I can see she would be a suitable choice for any event too. If you ever need a verbal reference feel free to contact me. Thank you Tania. We are glad you were the person to marry us.”

Tania also made us feel so relaxed and made sure to ring our venue and ensure everything was organised. We didn’t feel pressured into choosing her, once we meet her we knew she was the celebrant for us. Tania is such a lovely person :). When we met she emailed me vow ideas and we did a rehearsal of our vows beforehand. Tania is well organised and always responds to your email and calls so your at ease and all you have to do is be excited for your big day instead of stressing. I highly recommend Tania as a celebrant.

wedding-testimonial-pics-geralyn-and-umed“We would highly recommend Tania Jeffs to anyone who asked us who to use as a Wedding Celebrant in Auckland. Tania was very accommodating considering we contacted her only 2 weeks (or less) before our wedding! She was also very flexible considering we changed some of the programme last minute. The ceremony was tailored to suit us as a couple and our guests commented on how it was a nice and very intimate. We are very happy to have had Tania marry us, she made us feel very comfortable throughout the ceremony and we didn’t feel like a customer or just one of the many people she has and will marry throughout the years.”

— Geralyn and Umed, May 2016

doug-and-wendy-testimonial-pic“We have nothing but high praise for Tania’s professionalism and warmth; from our initial discussions through to our ceremony. We feel very lucky to have found someone who understood exactly what we were after and delivered a flawless ceremony. Everyone at the ceremony commented on how good Tania was. We would recommend Tania to anyone who wants a well organised, professional, warm celebrant who delivers a ceremony in line with your wishes. Thanks Tania!”

— Wendy and Doug, May 2016

nat-and-charlie-testimony-pic“We cannot describe in one sentence the lovely work that Tania did on our wedding day. Although we did want a very casual affair she was still very professional in her work and made the whole service just flow from start to finish. I would not hesitate in recommending her for anybody’s wedding as she is a great person and very professional, so do not hesitate. Thanks Tans – love you heaps.”

— Charlie and Nat, March 2016

rachel-and-mark“We found Tania to be a fantastic Celebrant for our recent wedding. We wanted to create something unique for ourselves, rather than proceed along the traditional wedding trail. Tania was a tremendous help and source of encouragement and inspiration for us to achieve this goal. On the day everything went according to plan and Tania made the whole experience easy & reassuring for us. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tania to anyone wanting a professional and creative wedding Celebrant – I am sure you would be as pleased as we were with our relationship.”

— Mark and Rachel, January 2016

roxie-and-john“Right from approaching Tania to be our celebrant, my husband and I knew there was something special about her, her passion and her enthusiasm to make our day very unique and special. Our initial exchange of emails and texts were very informative and reassuring, and her mannerisms displayed throughout the lead up to and throughout our wedding day, was nothing less than professional. Tania displayed care, poesy and sensitivity towards our family and friends that words like ‘thank you’ don’t actually express how happy we are with the whole experience. Tania you are a true gem… which makes us one of the luckiest couples in the world. Malo ‘aupito xXx.”
