Your wedding is more than just an event to us.

Bethells Beach Cottages sit in a glorious environment where your entire wedding day can unfold against rich backdrops of natural beauty and sweeping views from sand dunes to Tasman Sea horizon.

We recognize the sacredness of this pivotal moment in your lives. We have over 30 years of experience from guiding wedding celebrations in the journeys of many others. We believe there's no better place for two souls celebrating their love and this is truly one of the outstanding beach wedding venues in Auckland.

I have loved my celebrancy work for over 30 years and will travel when needed (Travel and associated costs apply)

Through my life of mentoring, healing, wisdom and love of life I continue to support personalised ceremonies with both individuals.
