Annette Richards is an Authorised Civil Marriage Celebrant from Brisbane with a focus on designing a ceremony that is light-hearted, fun and most importantly about you and your personalised story.

Getting married? Congratulations!

Let me be part of your special day. 

I am a registered Civil Marriage Celebrant and would love to meet you both to create a ceremony that is truly unforgettable.

If you already have something specific you've always wanted for your special day-we can work together to make those dreams come true!

If you aren't yet sure what sort of ceremony you want, I can offer suggestions and we can begin bringing together a day that you will make you both happy and remain in your memories forever.

Depending on what you decide, we can design a ceremony to be as light hearted or as serious as you want, an elegant affair, or something more casual. After all, the focus on your day is you and the beginning of your new life together as a married couple.

If there's anything you're not sure of, need guidance about or don't know whether to include it, talk to me, together we can create something unique.


Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Do you have a PA system?

Annette Richards Celebrant

Yes, I have a Mipro MA505 state of the art system.

How often do we need to meet with you?

Annette Richards Celebrant

I will meet with you as often as we need to make sure that we get your ceremony just right. Usually three - four meetings plus a rehearsal.

Can I meet with you and see if you are the right celebrant for us?

Annette Richards Celebrant

Definitely. I offer a no obligation first meeting so that we can get to know each other a little. I think it is important that you like your Celebrant and that you feel you can build a positive relationship with that person.

Do you agree with same-sex marriage?

Annette Richards Celebrant

I think everyone has the right to be loved by that special someone, no matter what their sexual orientation. I support same-sex marriage.

I have no idea what should be included in my wedding ceremony. Can you help?

Annette Richards Celebrant

Of course. In fact, I have put together, what I like to call, my "Wedding Handbook" which is available for couples to borrow. It includes examples of ceremonies, poems, readings, vows, rituals and many other things that will help you feel more comfortable in planning your wedding ceremony. Of course, I have a library of resources as well, so we will definitely be able to put something together that you will truly love.

Annette is INCREDIBLE! We had a lot of false starts and rescheduling for our big day thanks to covid, but Annette came along for the ride and supported us the whole way! She was so intrinsic to our wedding and got to know us so well before the day to deliver our perfect wedding ceremony. She was so relaxed and happy to provide our every request, no matter how odd! Her energy is like a pure beam of sunshine! Thank you so much Annette! ❤️❤️❤️- Anthony & Lauren

I don’t know what to say - and let me tell you that’s unusual for me 😁. Thank you so much ☺️. I absolutely loved working with you both. COVID did throw up some challenges but, who cares? Eventually your friends and family had the opportunity to celebrate a fun wedding with you both ❤️ (even if it was ‘virtual’ for some of them). I hope all your dreams come true 😘❤️

It has been an absolute pleasure having Annette as our celebrant. Annette is a truely amazing and beautiful lady who is passionate about her work. Annette is professional but her approach made her feel more like a friend. She spent the time to get to know us both and whilst we shared personal information we felt at ease and knew there was no judgement. Annette offered suggestions and reminded us we could do whatever we wanted at our ceremony as it was our special day. Annette went above and beyond not only delivering a fun and personal ceremony but ensuring the groomsmen ties were on point; thank you! We highly recommend Annette!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

It was great working with you and John, Karen. You're right... It does feel like I am working with friends and I'm always just a little sad when our time together comes to an end. I wish you much happiness as you continue your journey as a married couple.

If you’re looking for a celebrate who is going to make your wedding unique and special, don’t look past Annette Richards. Our guests said that our ceremony was so meaningful and beautiful. Annette was so engaging and really took the time to know who we were, where we came from, what makes us a unique couple. Annette is such a friendly and happy person who knows how to have fun and laugh with you, which made our wedding ceremony extra special. Annette did an amazing job capturing the essence of who we were as a couple and portrayed our story which made it feel heart felt and true. Thank you, Annette, for making our day extra special and look forward to our 10 year renewal of our vows.

David and Frederick, your wedding looked amazing, as did both of you. The little touches you added to the venue, including the ceremony site, just meant an additional level of personalisation. The Jaguar you drove up in was an added touch of elegance. All the best for your future together.

From the first moment we met Annette, we knew she was right for us. She connected with both of us and we were able to have ‘fun’ in planning our ceremony with her. Annette’s wedding ‘bible’ was a great asset during the planning process and helped to keep the process simple yet personal. She was happy to make last minute changes and her communication skills were excellent, responding to emails very quickly! I can not recommend Annette highly enough. She did not falter during our ceremony, even when her back was getting soaked during the massive downpour of rain. Thank you Annette for helping to make our day so special! Katrina and Aaron

We did not know where to begin with our wedding ceremony or documents or anything, Annette really did everything and made it so simple. She's the best decision we made for our wedding! 11/10 would recommend!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

I loved working with you and Andrew. Despite COVID, the wedding ceremony was lovely and the photo of the three of us with "attitude" is still one of my favourites. Thanks for choosing me as your Celebrant!

7 Aug 2020

Annette was so professional and lovely. She did the most amazing ceremony. If it wasn't for her help during the pandemic, we wouldn't have been able to make our big day happen. She did so much behind the scenes to make our day happen. Definitely recommend her 100%

Annette Richards Celebrant  

Dan, it was fantastic working with you and Tamara to meet your shortened timelines. COVID certainly did impact on your wedding plans, nevertheless, your day was fantastic. I'm so glad I could help to make your day really special. Good luck in you future together.

16 May 2020

Thanks so much for everything Annette. We are so greatful for everything you have done for us and for bearing with us with the million changes and last minute additions. We had the most magical day with everything stripped back. We are so excited to do it all again next year with you and our entire crew.

Annette Richards Celebrant  

I'm really looking forward to a full ceremony in front of all of your friends next year. That being said, your 'real' wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful

7 Mar 2020

Annette was our celebrant and we both could not have been any happier with her. We chose to keep it a bit short and sweet with some laughs along the way and Annette definitely delivered what we wanted! Such a lovely, friendly and NON judgemental lady, which we found hard to find in our search. If I had to do it all over again I mostly definitely would rebook Annette! If you’re thinking of booking Annette.... do NOT think, just book her now while you can!!!! You will not regret it, I can guarantee that!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

Thanks so much Krystal. It was a shame the rain prevented you getting married at the lookout, as planned, but your wedding was truly special with the sun deciding to shine on you both at just the right moment.

We cannot say enough great things about Annette and are so happy we had her there with us on our special day. Annette is warm and bubbly and felt more like a friend. She was ever the professional, organised, flexible and super responsive which gave great comfort that we were taken care of in a busy and anxious time. She helped us design the ceremony we wanted and delivered it so beautifully. We received many positive comments about how heartfelt it was. Thank you Annette for being so wonderful to work with and making our ceremony so perfect!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

It was great working with you both. Your wedding was really lovely and enjoyed by all those who travelled to be with you, particularly those from Papua New Guinea. Good luck in your future together.

We had a few meetings prior to our wedding and Annette went out of her way to come to us. Nothing was a drama and she was exceptionally professional while being absolutely lovely. She kept us organised and on time with our planning and all the paperwork. On the day she made us very comfortable and was a cheerful and bright presence at our ceremony. Our guests commented on how lovely she was and we were really happy with how our ceremony went. We absolutely recommend Annette!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

Your day was really special. The boys looked particularly great, with their socks showing the British flag. Of course, you and your bridesmaids looked fantastic too. Thank you for choosing me as your Celebrant. We wrote a great ceremony together.

8 Nov 2019

You did a fantastic job for us, Annette. Our guests were even complimenting on how amazing you were, how much you obviously loved your job and how personalised you made our ceremony. Going to miss your happy, smiling face! You're the best!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

I'm really glad that you were happy with your ceremony. It was great working with you both and I wish you all the best for your future together.

6 Nov 2019

Annette is an absolute pleasure to deal with. We wanted a no fuss very quick ceremony and that's what we got. 5+ stars. You won't be disappointed.

Annette Richards Celebrant  

It was great working with you both. You knew exactly what you wanted and, though your wedding was a simple affair, it was intimate and special in it's own way.

5 Nov 2019

10/5 stars! Annette went to so much effort to make my wedding day special! I looked around for celebrants for months and came across Annette and she was definitely worth it! She is cheap and does a lot for you to make sure, not just you as a bride or groom, but your family and friends have a fantastic time! I can’t thank you enough, Annette, and I am glad I got you for my wedding day, you’re amazing! She makes sure the day is perfect for you and goes along with what you want! Thank you so much!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

What a great day! Thanks so much for choosing me to be a part of your ceremony. It was intimate but exuded love from both you and your guests.

Annette performed our Wedding ceremony up at the Providence Farm Hall on Saturday (19/10/19). She was absolutely brilliant and the ceremony was perfect! She worked with us every step of the way! We loved her quirky, bubbly and down to earth personality which suited us so well! She is so easy to talk to and get along with and her handbook was so helpful in providing us with ceremony examples which led to our ceremony being everything we wanted and more! I highly recommend Annette to ANYONE and EVERYONE looking for a celebrant in the Gold Coast and Brisbane areas! Thankyou for an amazing and perfect day! Xx 💜

Annette Richards Celebrant  

Gotta love a farm wedding! The rural setting was particularly serene and your planning and design left nothing to chance. Thanks for choosing me as your Celebrant. It was really great working with you both and meeting Jake.

18 Oct 2019

Annette did an amazing job with our wedding by making it super personable and assuring our guests had a giggle.She made the whole experience extremely easy to understand and was happy to work around our schedules. If you are looking for an organised celebrant with a bubbly personality, we highly recommend Annette!

Annette Richards Celebrant  

Working with you both was a lot of fun. Troy was always a little cheeky at our meetings, but still managed to write heartfelt vows (with a little help from his friends). Burleigh was a beautiful setting and the waves made a gorgeous backdrop. I hope all your dreams come true.
