We offer first class, inspiring, best practice training. All our trainers are experienced celebrants and wonderful teachers with a wide range of skills in celebrancy and business and can offer you the very best in training.

Our courses have been written by our team who are all long term experienced New Zealand celebrants.
Our New Zealand training team is made up of Wendy Barton and Elizabeth Bennett. They are experienced and respected celebrants, and educators, who are committed to the development of celebrants.
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!
