Wow, what an amazing day our wedding was. We were absolutely thrilled with Trudianne and our ceremony. It went so well and was beautiful and moving (not a dry eye in the house). She also made it a little bit funny which was really great to put some informality in the service. She was fantastic and we recommend her to anyone wanting to get married.

My partner, Jan and I travelled all the way from Denmark to get married in New Zealand. Trudi helped us before we even got to NZ with information about how to get a marriage licence etc.  When we arrived, she arranged transport and a place to stay on Waiheke Island and the next day she performed a lovely ceremony for us on the beach.

It all went so well and if you are looking for a wedding celebrant, Trudi is the one you should contact.

Trudianne did us the great service of marrying us in NZ as we were unable to say, ‘I do’ in Australia due to their antiquated laws. She delivered a heartfelt service and we both felt honoured and gratified to have her as our celebrant.

Trudianne did everthing that was required of her and more and we would both highly recomment her to any prospective couples out there.

Bridget and I would like to thank you very much for the hassle free, professional service you provided us at our recent Easter beach wedding on Waiheke Island.

We appreciated the fact that you performed the ceremony with perfect pace and content, ensuring a very personalised ceremony, tailor-made to suit our needs.

We had a fantastic day that was enjoyed by all and we would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends or family requiring a celebrant.

I chose Trudi because, how she described herself on the internet, resonated strongly with me. She didn’t let me down.

Her advice in helping select the location for the ceremony, the accommodation and dinner venue, were invaluable.

She was also comfortable working with me remotely.

The wedding day itself and the ceremony were stress free and totally reflected Karon’s and my approach to life.

It couldn’t have gone better.

Trudi looked wonderful as the wedding celebrant. She spoke clearly and engagingly.

The words of the ceremony were very moving and in the end there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

I would definitely reccommend her services as a celebrant.

Trudi performed a lovely ceremony with heartfelt readings and the vows which she helped write, were very moving. We were left with a feeling of love and warmth.

The ceremony was beautiful and moving and Trudi was professional and genuine throughout.

I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any couples wishing to get married.

I have known Trudi Tait for just over a year, here on Waiheke Island. She has recently expressed an interest in becoming a marriage celebrant in our local community and I believe she would be the perfect person for such a role as she is caring and sincere as well as motivated, confident, and engaging and she enjoys helping others.

My same sex partner and I are taking advantage of the new Marriage Amendment Legislation and are planning to marry in the coming year. In this new, uncertain climate, we feel that we need a celebrant who is sensitive and respectful to our needs and who will perform a memorable and moving ceremony. We would very much like Trudi to be that celebrant.

I believe she is perfectly suited to bringing couples together and will coordinate sensitive ceremonies with an open-minded attitude to help ensure these couples have a wonderful wedding.
