Rose Haskell – Taranaki Celebrant Extraordinaire
Why I became a Marriage Celebrant
I was at a wedding, back in February 2015 and at that wedding, friends of ours who were planning their nuptials the following summer asked my husband about the prospect of becoming a celebrant to officiate their wedding. He was open to the idea, so we asked the celebrant who officiated the wedding we were at what it took to become a marriage celebrant.
She walked us through the process and the looked me smack bam in the face and said “hey, you’d be a good celebrant”. I asked why, and she explained that, to become a celebrant, you must show that you fill a certain gap in your community. For me it was that I was young and I was also of maori descent. A couple of weeks later, I said to my husband (quite embarrassed, knowing I was going to rain on his parade) that I quite liked the idea of this celebrant thing. Knowing how ‘in the present’ I lived, also taking in to account at that time our children were 1 and 2 years old, he said not to do it. But, for the second time in our entire relationship, I DEFIED HIM!
I started the application process in February 2015, and was eventually registered as a Celebrant in July 2015.
