Hi,I am available to meet all your celebrancy needs.
I chose to become a celebrant after a career full of people focused jobs, which have provided me with the empathy and skill set required to write, and facilitate, a highly personalised ceremony.
I believe strongly that a ceremony designed to celebrate a life lived, however long or short, should be created with as much input from family and friends as possible. Likewise, weddings should be tailored to the individuals unifying in love and reflect everything that makes them, and their relationship, special.
I am a qualified and registered primary school teacher. Throughout Canterbury, both adults and children will remember me from my time as the Education Manager for SPCA Canterbury. I am currently found doing the occasional Zoo School shift at Orana Wildlife Park. My teaching background makes me ideal for those times when families decide to involve children in ceremonies of all kinds.

"We would highly recommend Richard. He was extremely helpful with planning of service and spent a lot of time liaising with us and taking care to include our thoughts and wishes. He conducted the service extremely skillfully and with great empathy."
