About me



027 5262635

Kia Ora! I’m Candice Aroha Tawhara, a Wellington-based marriage celebrant.

In short, I’m a bubbly, outgoing, and fun loving wahine with a touch of sass! I enjoy being social and meeting new people from all walks of life.

Initially I became a celebrant to wed two of my nearest and dearest friends but immediately fell in love with the role and have since had the privilege to wed five couples in a just under a year.

Nothing brings me more joy than seeing two people truly in love commit to spending the rest of their lives together, no matter what age, religion, or sexual orientation.

I am part Maori and am passionate about speaking Te Reo Maori. If you want a small part, or even your whole ceremony in Te Reo Maori, I’m your gal. If it’s not your thang, that’s cool too, my English is also on point!

While I am based in Wellington, I’m more than happy to travel beyond the big smoke, if you’ll have me that is!

If you want to know more about me, please get in touch. I’m happy to arrange a no-obligation coffee meet up before you decide if I’m the celebrant you’ve been looking for.
