Ceremonies that create occasions


About me

My name is Darran Watson-Vaughan. I am an Auckland based celebrant and was registered in November 2017, graduating with a Diploma in Celebrancy from The Celebrants Training College Aotearoa in August 2018.

Originally from London, New Zealand has been my home for the past twenty years. I am a keen amateur artist, weekend cyclist and novice gardener. I have an extensive background in Animal Welfare, Natural Health and work full time for a media company. I have been with my partner for nearly 30 years and we finally tied the knot five years ago!

As a celebrant I bring a dynamic and creative flair to my ceremonies.

I believe that every occasion deserves to be honoured; so, whether you are welcoming a new life, joining two lives in marriage, or celebrating a life that has ended, I will work with you to create a ceremony that is a truly unique representation of your life event.

I feel privileged that my position allows me to be a part of and share in other people’s stories.

Over time I will work closely with you on your ceremony that will become a uniquely crafted reminder of your special day. Let me bring your own story, or those of your loved ones to life with vivid word pictures and a skilled delivery that will lift the words from the page. Take your guests on a journey that captures their hearts, captivates their minds, souls and memories.

I offer a practical ‘can do’ attitude, exceptional organisational skills and business acumen. I am an excellent communicator, utilising skills that have been nurtured and developed as an active member of Toastmasters International.

I am dedicated to helping you celebrate the milestone events in the lives of your family and friends, so whether you seek a light-hearted ceremony that is reflective of your personality, a formal ceremony to acknowledge your life event, or one that is bathed in ritual significance, I will work you to ensure that we create something that is uniquely yours.
