About Krissy

Everyone’s story is unique, and I would love to help you celebrate yours.

Whether it is the beginning of life. a significant event, a pledge of love and commitment, a memorial, or the goodbye at a funeral, I will help to create the ceremony that best fits the occasion.

i am known as a very good listener with a warm-hearted, calm and understanding manner.

Having travelled widely i enjoy exploring different cultures and ceremonies.  I love being outdoors, by water and in the hills.  I currently work as a qualified group fitness instructor in gentle exercise, as well as my celebrant work.

I have experience with many friends and family members who have lost children, siblings and parents.  Even in the happiest of ceremonies it might feel important to remember or honour those people who are no longer with you.  I can help you do this in a meaningful and appropriate way.

For your marriage preparation, I also offer to facilitate the Prepare-Enrich course, which is a meaningful look at what you both bring to your marriage.

For those who want a simple ceremony without the personal story, I offer a ‘registry-style package’.

I am a member of CANZ, undertaking regular professional development, and have studied with The Celebrant School of New Zealand.

If you would like a no obligation meeting to discuss your celebration, feel free to contact me on

    Really looking forward to more celebrant training today with other celebrants, looking at how to use Poems and Readings effectively, and creating memorable ceremonies.

    After my wife Judith Duncan died of MND it was Krissy’s care and sensitivity that allowed us to bring together family, friends and Judith’s colleagues in a way that not only acknowledged the loss but also wonderfully celebrated a life. Her approach allowed all there to feel like they had participated in an event that positively met our needs but also would have been approved of by Judith herself. Thank you Krissy.

    Fantastic news Krissy that you are at last doing this work – I can’t think of anyone more suited to work with any of us at the sort of milestones and significant times that you will be involved in, in your capacity as a celebrant.
    I think I could have earmarked you for this work 20 years ago when we first met. You will bring that fantastic mix of yours of compassion, humour and just the right phrase.
    Best wishes
    Erica Gilchrist
