About me

I'm Rosie Bowie and I live in Wellington and regularly travel for special events in all parts of New Zealand.


"I have been married for over 40 years and have three children and five grandchildren. I love my family and friends and enjoy the company of people from all walks of life, nationalities and religions.


I ran a personalised matchmaking service throughout New Zealand for 17 years, appeared regularly on TVNZ and other media, including the NZ Woman's Weekly 'Now to Love' website.

I also co-wrote an award-winning book on love and relationships, "Heart Rules". 


Marriage Celebrancy


I enjoy providing unique and individual ceremonies for couples.

I am honoured to have been a marriage celebrant since 2015 working with couples to make their day special and memorable.


I believe that for the best wedding, there should be love, humour, honesty, and friendship.  These should all be written into your personal ceremony with love and attention because of course your wedding day  is a day of LOVE.

I will also ensure that the ceremony is delivered with sincerity and style.

I will listen to what you dream about for your future and work to understand you both as individuals as well as understanding your relationship together with family and friends.

As someone involved in matchmaking work for many years, I know it is vital to listen and learn about people as much as providing advice for their married life together.

My aim is to create a personal and special ceremony for your special day. I am a warm and happy person, and I would like to make your day the happiest day of your lives, filled with good memories. 

I'm available to be your celebrant for any style of marriage ceremony that you require. These include traditional style ceremonies or less formal registry style occasions in locations of your choice.
