Looking back on our day there is not a thing that we would have changed! From the moment we met, Evan we instantly felt his contagious warmth and  generosity, which spilled over making our day so special. He helped us create a beautiful service that reflected our personalities. He also walked us through ever step of the marriage process making our perpetration once in Queenstown effortless and stress free. We expected the scenery for our Heli Wedding to be beautiful, but the personal attention and care that Evan paid us made our overall experience remarkable!

We we’re planning our wedding in Queenstown and wanted the day to be special. We found Evan through friends and we had heard he was an excellent celebrant. He helped us write the vows and gave guidance on the ceremony. He also took care with the rehearsal the day before. He made our day v special and we are very grateful.

Evan Paterson was our wedding celebrant and we met with him twice before the big day. We were also in regular email contact with him leading up to the wedding day. He provided us with many different ceremony ideas to choose from and was very friendly and helpful. Evan also ensured that the ceremony itself ran smoothly and kept both us calm and relaxed for the reading of the vows.

“Choosing Evan Paterson as our celebrant was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. Evan is indeed a pleasant person and is wonderful to work with. Evan is definitely the celebrant to ring up when you’re planning for a wedding in Queenstown”.

Coming from overseas our search for a celebrant was made easier via the internet. Once we found Evan, we were excited by his enthusiasm and assistance. To be able to meet him via the internet and have video conference with him on “Skype” eased any issues we had of getting married in Queenstown. We have made a lifetime friendship with him since our wedding.

Evan was so helpful when we wanted to renew our vows, he even suggested we fly by helicopter to a secluded spot high in the mountains. It was a very special day made so much better by Evan’s personal input for us.

Hi Evan, Thank you so very much for making our special day awesome and relaxed.  You made everything very simple and stress free, considering we only met you the day before, and we were both very happy we picked you for our celebrant.  We hope you had a nice and relaxed time too.

I wanted to say thank you so much for being a wonderful celebrant, not only on our wedding day but through out our whole planning process!!! You really made the whole process so easy, especially when I knew I could rely on your sound advise when I could not be in Queenstown to suss things out myself!

Karli & Charles

We are just wanting to let you know how much your influence, made such a special day for us, better than we ever imagined.

How pleased we were able to secure your services on such an important day and we have recommended to friends and colleagues to go to Queenstown and have you be their celebrant.

Thank you again, so much.

How fortunate we were to find you on line. Through all the process you made everything so simple, from the licence application, to the drawing up of the ceremony. You made us so much at ease on the big day and all our guests had wonderful comments, on how you conducted the ceremony, your local knowledge was also very helpful.

Best wishes

Hi Evan,

We couldn’t be happier with how everything went. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special we could’t have asked for a more perfect day.  Our wedding was exactly how we wanted it and really appreciate you going the extra mile to deliver an additional ceremony copy to my Dad.  Everyone who attended our wedding had a fantastic time and particularly enjoyed the ceremony, it was so special and you did a great job.

Thank you so much

Natalie & Sam
