Kia ora! Welcome to The Celebrants Training College!

We offer highest-quality, inspiring celebrant training in Aotearoa-New Zealand.

Who we are

We are the New Zealand branch of The Celebrants Training College, which is one of Australia’s leading celebrant training organisations. We provide training for New Zealand celebrants that is focused, contemporary and relevant to the New Zealand context.

The Celebrants Training College is accredited by the Celebrants Association of New Zealand.

Our training programme is recognised by the Department of Internal Affairs, which is responsible for the appointment of marriage celebrants. 

Our New Zealand training team is made up of Wendy Barton, Jane Godfrey, Elizabeth Bennett and Sarah Gnad. All are experienced and respected celebrants, and educators, who are committed to the development of New Zealand celebrants.

Our students

Our valued Celebrants Training College students are a diverse group of people. While many are just beginning their celebrant careers, others are already experienced celebrants who want to develop, or extend, their skills and knowledge.

Our students stay in touch with one another and form invaluable support networks. We love being a part of their celebrant journeys!
