My passion throughout my career has always been in building relationships with people and connecting in a way that creates lasting friendships. It gives me great pleasure in helping people achieve their expectations and dreams for their Wedding experience. 


I was born in Queenstown. My career path has allowed me to travel extensively in Hairdressing, and Makeup, as well as being a Life Coach for many years. 

As a service, I can also host boutique weddings at our home in Kelvin Heights.


As a registered New Zealand Celebrant, I perform Marriage, Civil Unions, Elopements, Unity Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows. 




“What an amazing day and what an amazing celebrant Deborah is.  As the nervous groom, I was so thankful for Deborah playing such an important role in making the ceremony a relaxed, warm and romantic time, even when I forgot the rings in another room!   She made it so easy to plan the ceremony especially when it is so busy leading up to the big day.  I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Deborah as a celebrant for people's special day.”

Deborah has an amazing way of making you feel at ease and seeing the beauty in people. For our wedding ceremony, Debs captured our heartfelt thoughts and wove these into a beautifully considered ceremony. We loved the way she spoke with us both and our children to really discover the essence of our love. The readings she provided were really fitting. All in all, it was a wonderful ceremony that was shared with our nearest and dearest

Deborah conducted our wedding on 10 February 2019. Everything was first rate. Deborah puts a lot of feeling into the process of getting married. Very highly recommended.
Thanks for a wonderful day Deborah!!

Deborah was very accommodating and allowed us to have our ceremony at her house very last minute when the weather turned bad. Her warmth and friendliness really made our ceremony relaxed and exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend her, her house is a stunning location, and she really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we wanted. We were very lucky to have worked with her. Thanks so much, Deborah

"Deborah is kind, caring and thoughtful and we were so happy to have her as our Celebrant for our wedding. Deborah spent time with us to ensure we were happy and comfortable with the ceremony. She custom made the ceremony especially for us and the words that were spoken were truly beautiful. Deborah went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect including helping us with our vows the night before the wedding to bringing little things we didn't even think of like a nice pen to sign with. We couldn't be happier with Deborah's services and will be forever grateful".


Thanks again, we are so happy we chose you to be our celebrant. 


Many thanks, Monique Tinnelly
