Joy Harvey


I am a well presented friendly and approachable woman who has a strong empathy and respect for others.  I am outgoing and love people, mixing easily with people from other cultures, beliefs and abilities as well as from all areas of the LGBT communities.

I have a strong desire to make a commitment to couples who wish to celebrate their relationship by marriage or civil union and believe each couple’s marriage or civil union is unique and should be treated with empathy and respect.


I have a reputation for being a creative thinker and using my initiative, with the ability to remain calm in stressful situations. 

I have spent considerable time volunteering as well as working for community organisations and being involved with service clubs.

Recently, I have had considerable involvement with PowerTalk International.  My public speaking experience includes winning the PowerTalk International Speech Contest, Otago in 2015.  

My event management experience includes small events as well as larger events, such as the 2016 PowerTalk International Conference held in Queenstown.

By choosing me you get a friendly, approachable celebrant who’s fun to work with and delivers the ceremony that best reflects you, as a couple; whether that’s elegant and sophisticated or rustic and quirky, or a combination of all these. I offer a full range

of ceremonies including weddings, civil unions, vow renewals and anniversaries.
