EVERYONE NEEDS A KATE RITCHIE-SEXTON TO OFFICIATE THEIR WEDDING!!! Kate was professional from beginning to end! She made us feel comfortable and relaxed with the whole process. Kate was super organised and always willing to answer any questions that we had. She captured our personalities and made a ceremony that showcased our love and our story perfectly. We could not have wished to have anyone else officiate our marriage. If you’re getting married in the Ballarat area, you seriously can’t look past Kate. 1000/10 stars! Most perfect day ever! Love, love, love!

Kate was the perfect celebrant for our day. She understood exactly what we wanted and wrote a beautiful and funny ceremony! I’m so glad we went with Kate and if you choose her you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you so much Steph, so greatly appreciated xx

We were married by Kate in June 2021 in the midst of the pandemic. I can honestly say our wedding was saved by Kate and her willingness to go above and beyond for her clients. From our first meeting we knew we had hit the jackpot with Kate, she was professional and took the time to understand our love story. We noticed her attention to detail straight away when she noted and remembered family members’ names and significant events to incorporate into our highly personalised ceremony. We could not have asked for a more relaxed and intimate ceremony. Just one week out from the wedding we were forced to move venues, Kate proactively sought available options for us which meant we could quickly move to a new venue and still have the wedding of our dreams. We recommend Kate to everyone we speak to now. Thank you, Kate!

Kate was an absolute legend when it came to my wedding, I'm a very anxious person so naturally one of the biggest days of my life had a love anxiety involved, she rocked up and chatted with me and the bridal party and really helped calm my nerves, she was there every step of the way and I wouldn't have been able to be as calm and collected as I was without her! I highly highly recommend Kate! My wife and I have discussed when we renew our vows we will have Kate!

Kate is amazing, she makes getting married less nerve racking. Having an celebrant that makes you comfortable on your special day was one most important jobs. Kate interacted with the guest wonderfully and made sure that our day was perfect. I’m glad we chose Kate.

Kate is fantastic to work with, she's accommodating and flexible. She has great suggestions if your not quite sure or don't know where to start with your ceremony. Kate is easy to communication with and her response times are generally the same day. Wonderful, kind and generous

Kate was really good and she wanted to get to know us. She was fantastic on the day of the ceremony.

26 May 2021

Kate was fantastic from the first moment I contacted her, she made the process so easy and absolutely wonderful. She went above and beyond when we got worried about a potential lockdown which was announced the next day. She contacted our photographer and our place where our ceremony took place.

Kate was an amazing and super organised celebrant! She told our story beautifully and our guests raved about our ceremony afterwards. Kate came out to our wedding venue and did a ceremony rehearsal with us the night before our wedding, so we knew exactly what to do on the day. Kate took care of all the admin sides of things and made the process super easy for us. Would recommend Kate!
