That Celebrant Guy

Alden Thomas - Marriage & Civil Union Celebrant

About Me

Growing up in Ashburton, in Mid Canterbury, I have continued to live and work here. I love the rural aspect of living in Ashburton which, among other reasons is why I purchased a house here.


My partner Kirsten and I have 2 girls, Maddison who is now 6 and a big school girl, and Emelia who is 4 and thinks she's the boss. Its an experience living in a house load of girls, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I have many interests, but of late find that Hot Rodding and Classic cars seems to be the best way to spend time doing something I enjoy but something that is also family friendly which the girls can take part in. 

I have been appointed a Marriage and Civil Union Celebrant in New Zealand for about two years now. This last wedding season has been really successful since the Covid Lockdown, my best yet. Being a celebrant has been a way for me to meet some really lovely people and I'm really looking forward to having the opportunity to celebrate with you, my future couples!
