CHARLOTTE WINKEL

OWNER, CELEBRANT, MC & WEDDING BLOGGER

Hi there, big congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!

In 2010 I left my home town of Burnley in England and moved to Queenstown, New Zealand to reconnect with an old flame. It was clear pretty quickly that this time our light was out for good, but my love affair with Queenstown was just beginning.

I was too stubborn and having too much fun to think about returning to Blighty. Skiing all winter, riding my bike all summer, and a nice glass of local wine to finish the day… how could I leave this place?

Then I met Brad, and when we decided to get married ourselves we knew we didn’t want a boring run-of-the-mill ceremony. We struggled to find a celebrant who was young, creative and fun… so I decided to register as a celebrant and offer my services for other couples.

I’ve always been a writer, love to play host, and am a confident public speaker. I like to bring creativity and a bit of fun to your big day. As a mum and an animal lover, I also get excited about including children and making sure that your pets get a special mention on your big day! I get to know you and your story, and this inspires the ceremony that I write just for you.

I love all things Queenstown and wedding related. It’s a total pleasure to be involved in your wedding day, and I can’t wait to get started!
