traditional ceremonies
We got married on the 24th Feb 2018 and it was everything I dreamt of. Lukey was fantastic, with my family being Christian and my husband’s family not I was initially worried that we would have some issues, however, our ceremony was great and carefully crafted to fit both. 

My husband commented that he was glad it was her there as she is very calming and polite to everyone she meets and really made us feel special and that it was our day. 

Thank you Lukey for being amazing and helping us to become Mr & Mrs! “

Living in Taupo we had the perfect backdrop for our wedding and Lukey made us feel at ease with her relaxed but professional manner. Lukey fit in with our wishes and provided expertise when needed to make our day flow as smooth as possible. It is a credit to Lukey's involvement that everyone was made to feel welcome and the day couldn't have gone any better.

Thank you Lukey,for being our celebrant on our special day.


Brett & Lili Singleton,Taupo, October 2018



We had a small, intimate ceremony at Lukey's private residence.  We can't tell you how truly special and amazing she is.  Lukey far exceeded our expectations with all her personal touches and we felt blessed to have her as our celebrant!  We Can not recommend her enough. xxx

We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU Lukey! Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job marrying us! We loved your style and you had the best vibe, you were perfect for us! You made the whole experience, easy and stress free! You're so good at what you do:):)

We would highly recommend Lukey to anyone wanting a warm, genuine celebrant who is very organised, super relaxed and so easy to communicate with. We had a small registry style ceremony this time and when we have our actual wedding we would most definitely love Lukey to be our celebrant again! X

This is a piece of taonga from the same stone as their gifts to each other and wrapped in a piece of the brides veil.  How truly blessed am I.



Lukey was an absolute perfect celebrant for my wedding! She is so helpful and leads you every step of the way to know what has to be done! I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else and would recommend her to everyone! She’s kind/ gentle and listens to exactly the type of ceremony you want. Thank you Lukey you were the best!
