Wedding Celebrant | Beverley McLean Celebrant


Any marriage or civil union is a physical and emotional joining that is promised for a lifetime. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other relationship can equal. It is important for me, as a part of this special day, to work closely with couples, as they take one of the most important journeys of their lives.

“From our first meeting she listened to our ideas and translated them into a relaxed, genuine and intimate ceremony that suited us perfectly.”

I feel equally comfortable standing and speaking casually, barefooted in the ocean, as I do addressing a venue full of people - ensuring the couple and all guests are at ease no matter the location. Catering for people from different cultures and walks of life is always a privilege and it is a joy to bring everyone together on these special occasions.

There is no better place to celebrate the joining of a couple than the beautiful Taranaki and as a country girl at heart I am in awe of our beautiful province and the many hidden sanctuaries here. I know that we are indeed blessed for a choice of ideal venues for special functions.

I am able to support and aid you with the important decisions on your day after meeting with you to discuss any dreams and aspirations you may have. This includes giving advice on your vows. This way you will receive a personalised ceremony that will create an everlasting memory of your commitment to one another.

I take pride in my professionalism and will offer you a personalised ceremony to suit your style, your dreams and circumstances, capturing the essence of your relationship and your vision of your perfect day.

Registry Style at Manu Haven

A registry style wedding is a no frills ceremony. As a registered Registry Celebrant, I can offer you a legal ceremony with a set script, and you can express personal promises to each other and exchange rings, if you wish.

Enjoy my beautifully landscaped garden for up to 30 minutes, for up to seven guests plus the wedding couple and me as the celebrant or at a venue of your choice within the New Plymouth District area.

  • Registry weddings are weekdays only at flexible times.


Your marriage licence is valid for three months and can take up to one week to be processed. Get a marriage licence online.. This can then be emailed to me for printing.

The Government fee for a Registry ceremony is $90, payable online on the day of the ceremony or prior.
