OVERVIEW

Taking bookings for 2025! 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 the Adelaide Hills, yet well acquainted with travelling 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 10 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, 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. 

About

After my sister & brother in law asked me to marry them, I went through the process to get my qualification....and to my surprise, I LOVED being part of such a special day, and doing all that I could to shape a personal & unforgettable ceremony, for them, and now many more since. I am honoured by every couple who ask me to be part of their wedding ceremony, and can't wait to be part of many more amazing ceremonies across the country. Love what you do, and do what you love!

FAQ

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 month's 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

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

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 friends 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. Let's talk about your dates and special spot soon, to secure your date.

NO WAY! I always consult with couples on this. You're paying a fortune for an amazing photographer, and a beautifully coordinated wedding party, the last thing you need, is me rocking up and looking like one of your bridesmaids! I have loads of options, and love the consultation process with couples, to make sure I fit in with your expectations and the scene.

Yes! As there are only 52 weekends a year, there are limited dates that can impact fee structures for most celebrants. Mid-week weddings can be up to about 30% cheaper across 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.

Not quite, but nearly. We need 2 qualifying witnesses to the wedding, in addition to myself. So there will always be 5 of us. But we can do that at a dinner table, on a picnic blanket, at the beach, before you bungee jump together, or in your dining room at home, having a cheese platter! The scene and how we do it is open to your imagination, as long as we have the important legal requirements covered, we can make it as low-key and intimate as you like.

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!!

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!

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

March 2019

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!!
