Meet Your Kapiti Celebrant
Discover the Story Behind the Celebrant
Hello and Kia Ora! Welcome to my world of Love, Laughter, and Joy, where your special day is my passion. I'm Suzanne Panter, a Kapiti-based Marriage Celebrant, proudly qualified in New Zealand and a validated member of the Celebrants Association New Zealand (VCANZ). My purpose is to infuse your day with happiness and joy.
Whether your vision is for a simple, elaborate, traditional, or uniquely fun ceremony, I'm here to co-create the celebration of your dreams. Your love story should be told in your way, making your day everything you've ever imagined.
Originally from the UK, I embarked on this journey in New Zealand in 2008 with my husband and youngest son. Now, with over 30 years of marriage to Scott and our family-run businesses, I'm deeply connected to this place I call home.
Becoming a New Zealand Citizen in 2016 ignited my dream of becoming a celebrant. I wanted to give back to the community that has been so welcoming and supportive. Guiding couples through the marriage process and creating lasting memories on one of the most significant days of their lives is a true privilege.
Love, Laughter, and Joy are the heart of every ceremony I craft, whether it's a Marriage Ceremony, Baby Naming, or the cherished Renewal of Vows. Having renewed my own vows with Scott after 25 years, I can truly speak from experience.
As an expat, I couldn't think of a better way to give back to my adopted home, touching people's lives through the meaningful ceremonies I create. I'm not just a dependable, credible Celebrant, but also a good listener with a great sense of humor, and a commitment to being non-judgmental. Let me guide you through the process, offering ideas and suggestions for vows, readings, and your ceremony.
Thank you for taking the time to explore my journey. If you feel that I could be the Celebrant for your special day, please get in touch. I would be delighted to meet you.
