It has been quite a journey to become a celebrant and with my experience I am certain I can make it a special day for you. Let me tell you a little about myself.
I am a born traveller and have had a long career in the travel industry. My first overseas experience led to me taking overland trips from London out to Kathmandu; on the last London-Kathmandu trip I met my wife Liz. Many years later I am still travelling and taking groups away a couple of times each year. Last year we explored Tibet and we're now planning the next trip to Africa. In addition I have been privileged to go Nepal many times and have a close association with the Hillary family. At last count I have travelled to 70 countries and hope to keep adding to this.
One thing that my travels have taught me is the importance of friends, family and community, and what makes an occasion distinctive is being able to share it with those who matter to you. Another thing that I've learned is the importance of appreciating our beautiful country and preserving our Kiwi lifestyle in it. What a great country in which to get married!
