Meet Dawn Hayes
I'm very excited by the possibility of meeting you – and possibly marrying you!
My professional background is as a primary school teacher, having graduated with a Bachelor of Teaching & Learning. One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the opportunity to talk with the wider community to make sure everyone feels included in the process and shares common goals.
Weddings need exactly the same skill set, and I love bringing a couple’s vision to a reality - as a team. My approach is to build a magical experience around your shared vision; being a self-confessed tartan-loving Celebrant I would love to offer a ceremony that incorporated elements of Celtic tradition and flair. With a strong Pasifika influence in my own family, I also feel comfortable bringing that vibrant culture to life. Most importantly of all, it is about what your passions are and how you want them integrated into your special day...
In my spare time I’m a keen mountain biker, SUP enthusiast, dog-and-beach walker, and enjoy everything Nelson has to offer. Having lived here most of my adult life, I truly believe Nelson is one of the best places in the world to get married - and I’d love to help you do just that, so contact me now!
