My name is Becs Gillgren. I am 31 years old and I live in Papamoa, New Zealand. I got married to Carl in 2015, we have two little besties, Ted and Paddy! They are just delicious.
I am so delighted to be a Marriage Celebrant - a role that allows me to tell your beautiful love story and also play a little part in ensuring your wedding wishes come true. I absolutely love this role and I feel like I've hit the jackpot!
I love to travel- so where you are is where I'd love to be!
a quick intro
Why did I become a celebrant? I am one of those crazy people that love public speaking. But more than that, I love surrounding myself with beauty, in as many ways as a possible. I love people and I love stories. This role is something that my heart reaches for.
Boys: My divine husband, Carl and our adorable babies, Ted and Paddy. These 3 make me a better person and show me love and happiness everyday.
Family: 3 brothers who are my soul mates. I am also lucky to have woman role models who, just by being themselves, have taught me what it looks like to be a damn good human.
Drinks: Sparkling water and coffee are my daily essentials. But I am partial to any kind of craft beer, and you can't beat a gin on a sunny afternoon.
Habits: I am obsessed with fashion. I love shopping, walking, photography, writing, coffee dates, getting my hair done, and my MOST favourite thing is hang time with my little ones.
Fav wedding moment: Can't beat hearing those vows. Also, I LOVE it when I am standing talking to my couples during the ceremony but no one else can hear us. To know what little questions I ask them, you'll just have to get in touch to find out (hint).
Travel: This is probably one of the most important parts of my life. It is my favourite way to learn and the places I have visited have changed me in many ways.
Guilty pleasure: The Bachelor. I love Chris Harrison - enough said.
