Hi there. I'm Brough Johnson, a wedding and civil union celebrant based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Congratulations on finding your person! And better yet, congratulations on deciding to say “I do”.

I create commitment ceremonies that reflect, honour, and celebrate couples and their favourite people. As a storyteller, I love working with couples to sculpt their special tale and find the perfect rituals that suit them.  

Feel free to contact me to ask any questions or to arrange to discuss your plans.


Brough was an absolute professional to work with. She was thorough and picked up on small details that we hadn’t considered during the planning process. Brough is a wonderful storyteller and perfectly understood the essence of my husband and I, and portrayed this with a moving and personalised ceremony. Brough was calm and collected and worked so well with our other vendors. Brough, we can’t speak more highly of you. Thank you.

We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you did with our ceremony. It was everything we’d hoped for and it was so lovely to have people tell us they saw it as a reflection of us as a couple. We also had people asking if we’d known you for a long time because you spoke about us as though we were friends. You have such a lovely nature when speaking to a crowd.

We had such a fabulous day and I think the ceremony really set the tone for what was to come.

Working with Brough was a fantastic and supportive experience. Brough listened carefully to us and helped clarify the values and ideas that shaped our ceremony and the commitments we made to each other.

She also supported us to create an announcement that allowed us to include our families and friends in our elopement.

As a queer couple, we found Brough sensitive and open. We would warmly recommend her as a celebrant.

Our ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. Brough led the event with ease and was able to communicate our love of each other to the audience that made our ceremony so memorable. Before the ceremony, Brough took additional time to talk to each of us and explore our intentions on a deeper level.
— Jon Slason and Sara Beth Lovitz
Our wedding story is unique in that my husband (who is Argentinean) and I fell in love through dancing tango together and it was very important to us to have someone to incorporate both his culture and my own into our ceremony. Upon meeting with Brough to discuss our ideas for our wedding, we found her response both warm and spirited - exactly the type of celebrant we were looking for.

Brough’s attention to detail and desire to personalise the ceremony, meant she captured our story with eloquence. She hit upon the nuances of the merging of two cultures. We found her to be poetic and sensitive, able to express our feelings and experiences without needing us to have the words to explain them deeply to her.
