Thanks for stopping by

Hello! I’m Kineta Booker – a Christchurch and North Canterbury-based marriage celebrant – specialising in elopements, registry ceremonies and micro weddings!

I’m contemporary, love to laugh and have fun, and working with couples towards their big day – and experiencing and sharing in their jubilation as they tie the knot – is an absolute honour.

Some extra things you may like to know

I run a couple of awesome wedding vendor directories. If I’m not available for your big day, then check out the Christchurch Celebrants’ Collective. It’s a group of professional local celebrants I’ve brought together who love officiating weddings as much as I do. And they’re passionate about their craft and very good at what they do. I highly recommend!

And, I’ve also collated a network of wedding vendors from north of the Waimakariri Bridge – North Canterbury Weddings. It’s the perfect place to find vendors for your perfect North Canterbury wedding.

Other than being a marriage celebrant, I’m also the editor of popular wedding magazine, Canterbury Bride.

Because of this, I like to keep up with bridal and wedding trends, and also work very closely (and can personally recommend!) some of the best wedding vendors Canterbury has to offer. Just ask!


And, finally! I’m also a validated member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand, VCANZ. This acknowledges my professionalism and continual upskilling in the art of ceremony. It also means that I’ve been appointed as a Registry Celebrant, now that the Christchurch Registry Office is permanently closed, and can officiate Registry Ceremonies in the community. Fun, huh!

I look forward to sharing your special moment with you: a fun, vibrant and beautifully crafted wedding ceremony.
