Selwyn Celebrant - Suzanne Pethig

Kia ora, my name is Suzanne Pethig. I grew up in Halswell, Christchurch then moved to Blenheim where I lived for 20 years and where I met my husband Jeff and we had our two children Jack and Maia. Earlier this year we moved home to Canterbury and are currently living in Rolleston. I am happy to travel to officiate your ceremony.

Weddings and Civil Unions

Whether you would like an intimate ceremony or an extravaganza, I am able to accommodate whatever will make your day exactly what you want it to be. Once you contact me, we will arrange our first meeting, where along with finding out all the information I need to know about both of you, I will also let you know what needs to be done legally for your upcoming nuptials.


I would feel privileged to be given the opportunity to help you with the funeral of your loved one in any way that is needed. As your celebrant I can do as much or as little as you would like me to do. I will always be at the venue early and along with the funeral director will make sure everything is organised but if you would prefer a family member to read the life narrative or eulogy or someone to sing or readings to be read that is fine. The ceremony, whether it be a traditional funeral, or a celebration of life is special and unique to your loved one and you, the family and friends who have been entrusted this duty to organise this special occasion.
