Susan Holgate

I have lived in Otago all of my life and currently live on a beautiful farm  at Tuapeka West.

During these years I have worked as a primary school teacher, a Special Education Adviser, a counsellor, and an English teacher.

It is because of my interaction with young people and adults from a wide variety backgrounds that I have developed an empathic and perceptive understanding of people.

I have found my personal and professional experiences have taught me many valuable life lessons and skills that I bring to my role as a Celebrant.

Being a Celebrant is a job where I feel very privileged to be able to share in the  important, personal events in peoples' lives, and the role brings me an enormous sense of pleasure and satisfaction.​

As a celebrant, I would love to assist you to create a beautiful, personal and meaningful ceremony.

My role in the process is to listen to your needs and guide and assist you with your planning, provide resources and conduct your unique ceremony in an engaging, sincere and professional way.

I am a member of The Celebrants Association of New Zealand.
