This is me:  I’m Angela Port, a wedding celebrant, based in Dunedin, New Zealand. I am also editor, writer and chief coffee maker (and drinker) at Angela Port Celebrant. I became a celebrant in 2013, after being the MC at my friends wedding, I loved the process of crafting the reception speeches, to create a monologue that would honour not only the occasion, but also entertain the guests and reflect my friends personalities, their friends, family and love story. I loved it so much I wanted to know how I could do more of this, and that began my journey to become a celebrant. I have always been someone who is positive, and wanting to do things a little bit out of the box, and I saw wedding ceremonies which where lacklustre, lacking any type of fun or personality.  I knew I wanted to help offer couples something more bespoke for their special celebration.


I believe that life should be lived full of love, fun and celebration. I know weddings are one of life’s biggest celebration, but I am an advocate for living your whole life expressing and sharing your love, making everyday fun memories and celebrating everything.  So with that in mind I aim to provide you with information and inspiration to do that.

This website was created due to the large amount of questions and advice I was asked by couples, in my capacity as a celebrant, about all things wedding related, but also about how to live a fuller life.

I aim to provide practical advice, inspiration, and wedding wisdom to help navigate the stressful wedding planning process, and to add more love, fun and celebration into your everyday life.
