Kiaora, I'm Rose Barnes - I live in Mapua, Nelson and am originally from Invercargill. As a community-minded person I love being involved in local activities.

Growing up in a large family  I appreciate that whanau come in all shapes and sizes.  Ceremony and tradition have always been a big part of my life, I relish the opportunity to be a part of a wide variety of celebrations old and new!

 

I am happy to travel for celebrations and love the idea of curating an event personalised to your needs.

My approach

Love/Aroha is the crucial element of any ceremony, and all ceremonies are a celebration. Helping people and being involved with my clients on such a personal level is a privilege. I enjoy the creative process of planning a personalised celebration.

 

Known in my community for my empathy, efficient organisation and kindness, I always include a sense of humour in my work! I understand the importance of loved ones coming together in times of celebration and I look forward to chatting to you about how to make your day meaningful.

Testimonials

"We had the lovely Rose conduct our Wedding Ceremony. Everything went to plan, from the first moment Michael and I met with Rose – we highly recommend Rose."

- Robyn and Michael

"Rose did an excellent job officiating at the wedding of my partner and I. The whole event ran smoothly with no complications. Hopefully, I never need her service again but would thoroughly recommend her!"
