There are two ways to get married in New Zealand:
a. by a registered marriage celebrant
b. in a registry office
Registered Marriage Celebrant.
You can choose a religious or independent celebrant to officiate your wedding. You also have the freedom to decide when and where you’ll get married and have the opportunity to write your own vows.
Weddings in registry office are held during normal office hours. Unfortunately, you have to use standard vows and these can’t be customise during the ceremony.
