About Glenys

I genuinely care and am very passionate about every ceremony I design and perform. It’s important for me to get to know the people I’m working with because it means their personalities shine through the ceremonies.  My name is Glenys Lindsay, Auckland Celebrant. I find performing ceremonies to be so personally rewarding and fulfilling. It was my love for all people and my genuine passion for helping people that first endeared me to become a Celebrant.

It is my heartfelt desire that each couple, person or family have their perfect ceremony, exactly as they imagine. My hope is that everyone I have the pleasure of working with feels comfortable to express their own ideas and personal wishes for the ceremony. To achieve these unique objectives I work closely with them and will go above and beyond to ensure their dream becomes a reality.

Every person is unique, every culture is unique, and these factors are just some of what inspires me to when designing and creating a Ceremony which is personal to them and reflects their individuality.


Auckland Celebrant Qualifications

  • Registered New Zealand Marriage Celebrant as appointed by the Department of Internal Affairs (pursuant to section 10 of the Marriage Act 1955). In addition I am an Ordained Minister, which allows me the option of presenting weddings at any venue within New Zealand or within a Church.
  • Successfully completed a Certificate of Celebrant studies from AUT (Auckland University of Technology) and am a registered member of The Celebrants Association of New Zealand (Inc) – CANZ

In my personal life I take every opportunity that presents itself and my philosophy is to get out there and live every day to the fullest.  My family is my greatest joy.  I have an adult daughter and son and their partner’s families and a four year old grandson – who is the love of my life!  In addition I have a beautiful Schnauzer dog who is extremely spoiled. Creating special experiences for us all to share in is a particular passion of mine.

Over and above my family I love curling up with a good book when I have the time, meeting and learning about people, designing and making clothes, and listening to music!
