Carol & Phil Taylor
The only Marlborough celebrant couple.
We came from the UK in 1997 and settled in Blenheim after touring around for six months. We came with our cat Tiggs who enjoyed another three great years with us. We were then adopted by a rescued cat from the SPCA, we named her Twiz and she lived till she was sixteen.
We now have two Bichon Frise dogs, Sophie and Alfie, who are mother & son. They take up quite a bit of our time, but we love them to bits.
I entered the wedding business initially by hiring men’s suits and that progressed to Bride and Bridesmaids dresses. I worked from home, but this had progressed to obtaining shop premises in central Blenheim.
From here I started to do wedding planning, this was very new for Blenheim and before very long I was being asked if I could marry couples.
So, I sold my shop and applied to be a marriage celebrant. That was over twelve years ago, and I just love marrying couples.
I started without any form of sound system and quickly found out the need to have sounds.
This is where Phil my husband came in as he would see me struggling with loading up and thought we can do this together.
And so here we are working together and love it
Phil puts couples at ease when they come for an interview with me with suggesting music for their special day. This has been very successful for the couples knowing that they have the professional help and guidance for their ceremony.
Phil is now a celebrant, as the need for a male celebrant has been a missing option for couples.
So now you have a choice, and we are not in competition with each other as one will do the ceremony, the other the sounds.
So, if you are looking for a professional couple we are your dream team to make your day so very special. It may be an elopement, in your garden, by the sea, in a vineyard or wherever you desire to marry we will make it happen for you.
