Kerry and Bob

We have always loved & lived by the sea. On coming to live in Nelson after 30 years in the North of NZ, we fell in love with & bought Villa Victoria in sunny Nelson. We believe we live in paradise!

As unique accommodation, Villa Victoria (circa 1909) was built for a sea captain to view the ships sailing in and out of the port from his home. Villa Victoria boasts arguably the best view in the Port hills of Nelson, with unprecedented views of ‘The Cut’, Haula-shore Island, the greater Tasman Bay and mountains beyond.


Kerry was the perfect celebrant to officiate our wedding. We wanted it to be fun and relaxed and that’s exactly what she delivered. I can’t recommend her highly enough for your special day.

We really enjoyed our stay @ Villa Victoria, it was the perfect place to rest and decompress amidst the intensity of our Wedding weekend….. the beautiful view really makes it memorable.

Kerry Atiken and Celebration are a natural combination. When Kerry decided to become a celebrant, it blended together her wonderful capacity for hospitality, occasions, and creative flare.

Hi Kerry, what a pleasure it was to meet you and spend our special day with you, and even more than that…… to have you pronounce us man and wife! You did a fabulous job and would not have wanted anyone else. Thank you!
