About Us

Who we are

We are a New Zealand entity (NZBN: 9429047315327) and one of the 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 courses have been written by our team who are all long term New Zealand 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!
