About Shaken & Stirred

Meet your Queenstown wedding planners…


“We are Kellie from “Kellie Francis Photography” and Charlotte from “Your Big Day Wedding Celebrant” and together we are your Shaken & Stirred Weddings mixologists!

We’re here to mix fun vibes with professional wedding planning to create a wedding with punch and personality just for you!


Kellie is the lady behind the lens who will capture your amazing Queenstown wedding day photos. Originally from Canada, Kellie has made New Zealand her home with hubby Abe since 2012.

She’s passionate about sustainability, adores her doggo Bay, collects tattoos and loves to travel. Kellie is also a keen stargazer and enjoys astro photography under the stars. 

Her favourite cocktail is anything with gin!


Charlotte claims to have moved to New Zealand from England in 2010, but doesn’t drink tea and so we’re not convinced she’s English at all! Besides, she married a Kiwi bloke from Wellington and they now have a little Kiwi kiddo of their own!

As your celebrant her job is to make sure you’re legally married on your wedding day but she also likes to make sure everyone has some fun along the way.

She’s a gym junkie, loves walks and cuddles with fur babies Pip and lzzie and her favourite tipple is a cold glass of bubbly!

Shaken & Stirred Weddings

We are good friends who have bonded over many walk-and-wine dates with our doggos whilst chatting non-stop wedding talk. Over years in the wedding industry we’ve worked on hundreds of weddings of all shapes and sizes, and our favourite weddings are those where couples have let their personalities shine through.

From writing your own wedding vows and taking shots of tequila with your witnesses, to bright red wedding dresses and mountain top photo shoots, we embrace and encourage the unique and offbeat.

So, we decided to combine forces and offer you the opportunity to experience the wedding day you’ve always wanted, or maybe didn’t even know you could have!

With a focus on micro-weddings for just you two or with up to 30 guests, we do all the work, coordinate your fun, friendly and professional wedding crew, and keep your glasses topped up throughout!
