Elaine Spearman Celebrant
Your celebrant for all special occasions
Who I am
Kia Ora! I’m Elaine and I live in Central Auckland with my husband.
As your celebrant it’s vital you feel a connection with me and know that I’m the right person to guide you through your special ceremony.
My decision to become a celebrant was sparked by many friends who felt I had both the skills and personality to bring something special to the celebrant’s role. That spark was fuelled by my love of bringing people together and my desire to help them mark the various events in their lives in a way that’s genuine and meaningful.
It’s a role I love!
My background takes in Public Relations, public speaking, and communications consulting. I specialise in presentation skills training and have a passion for acting and considerable experience in both those areas.
PS - I'm also known as Spike in case you're wondering about the website name!
Congratulations on picking the date for your big day!
I’d love to help you create a memorable occasion, full of joy and meaning - one you’ll look back on and cherish.
The ceremony is absolutely all about you and what you want. My role will be to listen to your wishes, help you craft a warm and memorable day, be a safe and calm pair of hands from start to finish, do all the relevant legal bits - and add the “sparkle” you deserve. All of which I’ll do in a fun, friendly and caring way. I’d be delighted to help you create your own vows and assist you to write and rehearse your speeches, helping put you at ease if this is something you find daunting.
The first step is for you to get in touch and we can arrange a catch up. We’ll talk through what you’re wanting and you can decide if I’m the right person for your special day.
I’m able to travel outside Auckland and can officiate at ceremonies both during the week and on weekends.
I can't wait to hear your plans!
As well as weddings, I offer a range of other ceremonies. My aim with all of them is to provide a kind, caring and professional experience – one the suits the nature of the occasion and meets your specific needs.
Funerals – the honouring of a life and the sharing of love, respect, and sorrow for the loss of someone dear to us.
Baby namings – a joyful occasion celebrating the arrival of your little one.
Vow renewals – reaffirming your wedding vows (without the legal bits) and acknowledging your ongoing love.
Civil Unions – for those of you who prefer this, however, marriage is available to everyone.
Pet funerals – saying goodbye to that special furry friend
