My approach is completely flexible, and all about you. I want to help create a beautiful memory, in one of your most important days together.

Congratulations on your engagement! What a beautiful time for you both!

My name is Kate Ryan and I am an Authorised Marriage Celebrant based in Adelaide, yet well acquainted with traveling all over Australia for the love of this job.

I have been lucky enough to have been marrying gorgeous couples across the country for the last 7 years, and I love what I do. My first ceremony was my sister's, and I was so honoured to be able to help create a really special day for her and her husband, and since then, have been saying YES, to witnessing beautiful couples saying yes all over the country

My approach is completely flexible, and all about you – I want to help you create a beautiful memory, in one of your most important days together. Apart from the important legal stuff, everything else is up to you.

I can't wait to talk to you about your big day. 


Questions and Answers

How much notice do we need to allow for, before planning a wedding?

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant

Often, couples focus on booking the venue, the photographer, and sorting the dress as the first priorities, and then can leave the formal ceremony planning later in the process.

Legally, you are required to provide a formal months notice, in the form of a Notice Of Intent to Marry.

It's important to get this properly documented, before you proceed with the wedding. 

Any celebrant can help you with this, and there is all the info you need on www.ag.gov.au

We want to have a less traditional wedding than most, and want to be really creative in what we do - is this possible?

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant

YES!!! This is also really exciting! Most people believe that you have to stick to a traditonal script for a ceremony, ut the truth of it is, that usually only about 20% of a ceremony tht you see, is the legally required stuff. I love helping people create a ceremony off the tradional path, and can talk to you about tailoring a ceremony, perfect for the two of you!

We don't live in Adelaide, but think you're the right celebrant for us....

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant

Great! I have a suitcase, and LOVE to travel all over Australia to marry couples! I often conduct ceremonies in Alice Springs, Brisbane and Perth, and and open to going anywhere you need me. I incorporate the travel expenses into my fees, but can often offer a great rate, as I have feriends and family all over the country that I can stay with, to make it that little bit more affordable for you. As long as we're in Australian air, water or on the land, I can be there for you. Lets talk about your dates and special spot soon, to secure your date.

Is it rude for us to ask you what to wear to our wedding?

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant

NO WAY! In fact, I always consult with couples on this. You're paying a forture for an amazing photographer, and a beautifully coordianted wedding party, the last thing you need, is me rocking up and looking like one of your bridesmaids! I have been working in fashion reatail for over 18yrs, and so have loads of options, and love the consultation process with couples, to make sure I fit in with your expectations, and the scene.

Do you rates differ for mid-week weddings?

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant

Yes! As there are only 52 weekends a year, there are limited dates that can impact fee strucurters for most celebrants. Mid-week weddings are absolutely about 30% cheaper, for my fees, as well as most services associated with weddings. These are becoming more and more popular, and I'd love to talk to you about your date, and locking in a Monday to Friday wedding.

An absolute honour to have Kate as our celebrant! Super prepped and ready from day one, Kate brought organisation, excitement, emotion and joy to our special day that we would never have got from anyone else. Truly a one in a million. Kate travelled quite a distance just for us, prepared everything that we asked for, and even brought things to the table that we never even thought of! Kate, we were all destined to do different things in our lives. Being a marriage celebrant is the thing you were born to do. I hope we stay in touch, and the best of luck for your future endeavours. P.S. If we could give you more than five stars, we would!

Jenny and Michael, you two are just such wonderful souls. I enjoyed this journey with you both so very much, and hope our paths can cross again in the future some day. Health, happiness and love to you both x Kate

Kate was amazing , from the moment we met her for our initial meeting we instantly wanted her to marry us. She had a lovely presence to her and she sent our friends secret surveys to ensure our ceremony was fun, surprising and loving ... in our eyes it was the perfect combo! We had so many guests comment on how amazing our ceremony was and we have Kate to thank for that. Kate was just as excited as we were when she was marrying us, just another example of why we were so thrilled to have found her. Thank you Kate you were perfection!

Nicole & Omaid, was an afternoon of perfection! That view, that dress, your vows! Wow! I am honoured to have been part of your very special day. Thank you, and fingers crossed I see you at another wedding soon. xx love Kate

We don’t have enough good things to say about Kate. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Kate wrote a thoughtful and personal wedding ceremony, that reflected us as a couple perfectly (I loved that she sent a survey to our friends and families to make sure it was true to us)! Kate was very helpful in the writing of our own vows and she was great in following up my now husband who is not confident at outward expressions of his feelings!! On the day Kate was a clearly an expert at what she does and did a perfect job! Thank you again Kate!!

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant  

Oh Libby & Tristan, your wedding was just beautiful! I loved meeting your families, and feel so honoured to have been part of your wedding day. Thank you, and I do hope I get to see you as guests at another wedding soon. xx love Kate

Kate made our ceremony feel relaxed, personal and professional. She engaged with several family members and friends to add in short stories and fond memories about us into the ceremony which made the service very personalised. Kate was easy to contact and very prompt with replies throughout the whole process. We also had many family members and friends comment on how great she was on the big day! I couldn’t recommend Kate high enough!!

23 Mar 2019

We were so fortunate to have Kate as our celebrant, she was beyond incredible in all aspects and supported us through our whole wedding experience. We clicked with Kate on our first contact with her and knew we had to look no further. Kate is professional, organised, attentive to detail, well spoken and has a warm inviting personality. She is also exceptionally calm which helped put our nerves at ease as much as possible (so appreciated). She ran with any and every idea we had for our ceremony and was simply a delight to work with. We cannot thank you enough for absolutely everything Kate, it was a pleasure to have you with us on our special day! Highly recommended - 5 stars!

Chrissy & Lisa, your wedding is one I will never forget! What a fun, emotional day indeed. Wishing you a lifetime of love, health & happiness xx love Kate

One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was asking Kate to be our Celebrant. Kate took so much stress out of our wedding day with everything that she did for us. She created the most beautiful personable ceremony with many stories from family and close friends which made it truly unique. There was lots of laughter and some tears (mainly of joy!) and it was exactly what we were looking for. I had family come from overseas and they all said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been to. Kate also gave us and our bridal party a lot of great tips which were very much appreciated. Kate was so unbelievably good to us and we had a number of guests comment on just how amazing she was. Kate has a gorgeous manner and was so friendly and at ease with everyone. We will always be indebted to Kate for helping us to have the most perfect wedding day. Kate you are an amazing celebrant and an even more amazing person and we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us.

Trevor & Belinda you are too kind, and your ceremony was so much fun. You two are really one of a kind, and clearly have a long and loving road ahead. I wish you health & happiness forever xx Kate

Kate was fantastic, easy to chat to on the lead up to our big day and very personable. We had the greatest time, and were so pleased with how everything ran so smoothly, and that was thanks to Kate. We had a run through 1 week before the wedding, Kate was so calm, and made the whole bridal party feel comfortable. Kate understood our visions, making the whole process so much easier for the bride and groom. She understood the 'feel' we were going for on our special day. Our bridal party and family have said to us on many occasions how wonderful, calm and unique they thought the ceremony was, and we couldn’t agree more. Kate you are fantastic at what you do! She is worth her weight in GOLD!

Kate wrote such a beautiful ceremony for us and included so many personal touches that really told who we were as a couple. She helped us write vows that were important and special to us and was calm and professional through the whole process.

Kate is the perfect marriage celebrant. Kates' smile continues right through to her heart. Our experience with Kate, from the writing of the ceremony, through to organising the little people in the bridal party was perfect . She is a breath of fresh air, and will enhance your special day.

Kate was gorgeous. Such a thoughtful celebrant, really bubbly and kind. We have friends that attended our wedding who are now being married by Kate. Can't wait to see her again at their wedding!

Planning a wedding can be hard work, so having an amazing celebrant like Kate by your side makes it so much easier. Kate is absolutely amazing! Kate married my husband and I in April 2017 and we could not have wished for a better celebrant. Leading up to the wedding Kate provided advice to both of us for our vows and the structure of the ceremony. On the day, Kate was professionally and stylishly presented and took the time to calm my nerves when stepping out of the car. We are so grateful to have had Kate be part of our big day!

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant  

Helen & Aaron, your wedding was so intimate and personal, and I loved being part of it! Thank you, and Congratulations to you both again! Kate xo

Kate is an amazing marriage celebrant. She is super organised and made all the planning so easy for us, and through all stages of the process she kept us really relaxed. Her suggestions and advice on writing vows was perfect. On the day Kate went above and beyond to make sure everything happened seamlessly and she has such a beautiful easy manner with everyone. We were so lucky to have her marry us!

Kate Ryan Marriage Celebrant  

Thank you so much Kate & Jonno! You guys are, and were a delight to work with on the day. Such a beautiful day in the park, and such a grounded, humble couple. I will always remember your beautiful wedding. Regards, Kate x
