Ron Schepers Testimonials

Ron Schepers Celebrant I am a wedding celebrant with over 25 years experience and enjoy working with couples to create a personalised ceremony that is a true reflection of their relationship and wishes for the day.  I would describe myself as contemporary, professional and relaxed, and I use the same resources and processes as Rachael to help make creating your ceremony enjoyable and easy. Below are some testimonies from recent weddings:

A magnificent job

Ron Schepers wedding Nelson We really appreciated the time Ron took to visit us and get to know our stories. The website was also useful in helping us organise our ideas, and consolidate our thoughts about how we really wanted the day to feel. For us, being second time around-ers, it was all about the family and keeping a sensitive slant on things. Ron was able to empathise with that and helped us create a very personal and meaningful ceremony, expressing our love for each other and our families and our gratitude for having found one another. Ron did a magnificent job. Our guests were very impressed with how attentive and helpful he was when they arrived, he showed them where to stand and explained what to expect. He had really listened to what we wanted and the result was a perfect, simple and loving ceremony which we were thrilled with. He paced it beautifully, played our music at the right times and was extremely organised. Thank you Ron for making our special day so very memorable.

We would definitely recommend you

Ron Schepers wedding Nelson We can’t thank you enough for being our celebrant. You were so easy to work with and understood exactly what we wanted and needed to make us feel comfortable.

Once again thank you so much.

Could not have found a better person

wedding ceremony Founders Park Nelson We were referred to nelsoncelebrant.co.nz through a friend. Rachael already had another wedding on our planned wedding date but she referred us to her husband Ron, and don’t think we could have found a better person to share our special day with. Ron was so easy to deal with right from the beginning. We only needed one meeting with Ron and a few emails to put together our dream day. This process was made easy by using their fantastic website. They had everything covered for us and guided us in planning our own unique ceremony which were delighted with. Ron gave us the idea of a mini ceremony, a sand ceremony which was a huge hit on the day! Ron worked incredibly well with our big bridal team and had many fans by the end of the ceremony. We lost count of how many compliments we had on our choice of celebrant. Thanks again for your professionalism and personal touches you added to our ceremony to help make it a very memorable day. We highly recommend Ron Schepers as your wedding celebrant A++

Easy to talk to, enthusiastic and professional

wedding ceremony Fairfield House Nelson Ron helped us create one of the most important memories of our lives, and we will not hesitate to recommend him. On our first meeting Ron immediately put us at ease as he was so easy to talk to, enthusiastic, and professional. The process was made easy with the online questions, ceremony template, and resources. Ron created a ceremony very personal and special to us, without being overly formal – as we had wished. We were able to include all the people and ideas we wanted, and Ron was fantastic with our 4 year old page boy. On the day everything just seemed to come together and it was a really enjoyable experience. Guests commented on the meaningful wording, and how beautiful the ceremony was. Days later a friend who is a wedding veteran mentioned he had been telling people all about it, and concluded it was the best ceremony he had ever attended! Thank you so much Ron, we will treasure the day always.

Made us feel relaxed

ceremony Ron Schepers officiated our wedding at Neudorf Vineyard in Nelson. We found out the week before our wedding that our minister could not conduct our ceremony, and thus had only a few days to work with Ron on our new program. He made us feel so relaxed in what was a stressful time, and did such a beautiful job incorporating both myself and my husbands histories, cultures, and beliefs into the service. All our guests said it was one of the most personal and gorgeous ceremonies they had ever witnessed! This was largely down to Ron’s professionalism, and ability to translate our love story into a personalised and special event. We could not recommend him more highly!

You were awesome

Chris and Kristy wedding at Woollaston Thank you so much Ron for being a part of our day.  You were awesome. Your work in developing the service through the questionnaire, all communication and IT subtlety’s took a lot of pressure of us.  Most importantly the way you took the time to get to know us, and capture our unique lomling ways in the service made it all the more special. Thanks again

Pleased we found you

wedding photo to come We would just like to thank Ron so very much for being our celebrant. He offered his services as Rachael was busy and as things do, he turned out to be just the person for us. He was so laid back and approachable, and at the same time very efficient. He wrote us a beautiful ceremony and we had many comments on what a great speaker he was and how lovely and relaxed the ceremony was. Thanks again Ron, we were so pleased we found you!

Everyone commented on how amazing you were, you helped make our day very special. Thank you so much.

Professional and friendly and warm personality

wedding photo to come Ron was a wonderful marriage celebrant for our wedding. He stepped in at literally the last minute when our previous arrangements fell through – meeting with us for the first time less than 24 hours before the wedding. He immediately set us at ease and reassured us that he would support our wedding our way. We had some very specific requests and he took these on board without batting an eye. On the wedding day, he was extremely organized and made everything happen perfectly, without us even needing to think about it. He was so friendly and calm, and really made the day extra special. I was so impressed with both his professionalism and his friendly and warm personality. There was no better celebrant for us, and I am thankful he took our wedding on at such short notice.

The ceremony felt very special and us

wedding photo to come We just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for last Saturday. We had the greatest day! We are so appreciative of all the work you put into the ceremony for us, especially with the long distance issue. The ceremony felt very special and “us” and we loved how it was so focussed around friendship. We felt very relaxed with you on the day and it helped us to be able to enjoy every moment.
