Hello, I’m Rita!

My passion for being a marriage celebrant is a result of my love and of many years experience in the health industry. Guiding and inspiring people to be balanced and happy with their life and as their Wellness teacher.

Preparations for your special day can be super stressful. It’s easy to forget to enjoy the journey during this special experience!

I would LOVE to be a part of your amazing day, creating a personalised, modern & fun ceremony. Keeping you both stress-free, relaxed and ready for the best day of your lives!

Kind Words

Rita was just fabulous! The ceremony was beautiful and she put us at ease with everything. Her approach and manner was a clear indication of her experience and the heart that she puts into making the day as memorable as she can with all those "magic moments" is something that not enough thank yous can be said to show our appreciation.

Rita is a friendly, enthusiastic marriage celebrant! Rita took the time to get to know us, and make sure the ceremony would reflect what we wanted from the day. Through three reschedules, Rita reassured us and made the process easy. The ceremony on the day was absolutely perfect- it captured everything we wanted and more! Thanks so much Rita!

How do you select a Celebrant for your wedding? How daunting is this process? We found you Rita from your testimonials on Facebook, so Colleen and I want to add to your success. We loved the way you personalised quite a formal process in to, as in our case, a big part of the entertainment for our guests. You pitched your delivery at the perfect level for our musician based guests. Made the process seamless. A BIG THANK YOU from us and wish you continued success for your future gigs. xxx

Rita was so calming and kept us so grounded in the lead up. Matt and I could not have asked for a more genuine, natural ceremony. We just wanted to show the love we had for each other and for our families and it was front and center. You can tell Rita cares about not only her bride and groom, but everything to make sure the ceremony is a memorable one!
If only we could get married again to experience it all over again!

- Natasha R, the BrideWedding Date: Feb, 2021

Rita was an extremely kind, helpful and caring celebrant to work with in the lead up to our wedding in early 2020. I had a vision to create a ceremony that was a little different to others- different members of the bridal party would present most of the ceremony. Rita embraced this idea with an open mind and heart, allowing us to work together, bouncing ideas back and forth right up until the day. Her partner Mike was also extremely helpful- he played pre ceremony music over their great speakers and throughout the whole day, Rita and Mike felt like family!

- Jade G, the BrideWedding Date: 8 Feb, 2020

All we wanted was a relaxed wedding without all the fuss and a ceremony that was simple but super special. Rita was amazing and really helped us achieve this outcome. She made our guests laugh and shed a tear at the same time. Having Rita as our celebrant made the day for us. Thanks Rita, you are a superstar.

- Garth S, the GroomWedding Date: Dec, 2020
