They call me The Wedding Pixie - and I really, really like it. I even bought the shoes to match.

I'm Robyn Pattison, award winning marriage celebrant  and OMG Wedding MC in Sydney, NSW.

Let's chat about your wedding day, and how I can help you make it gorgeous. 

I absolutely love my job - (it's a little like being a fairy godmother - but never, ever like a robot.)

My ceremonies are always moment of light, happiness - and usually, laughter - but never cheesy, stiff or dull. 
They are absolutely unique to each couple - because every couple I meet is different.

Personal and intimate, fresh and engaging, your wedding ceremony will be a real, living, breathing moment; about you, and for you, so that you, your family and your guests come away feeling like you have been part of something really special.

My receptions are so carefully organised  - and managed - that all you'll see is the fun and the laughter - and lots of dancing.

PS - Want to make the whole day easy and fun and fabulous? Talk to me about being your MC , too!  ( I'll even dance with your mum!)


Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Should we have a wet-weather back-up plan?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

Yes! You really should. We all hope that your day is shiny and bright blue – but you never know…. It is worth spending a little extra, or making arrangements with your reception venue, for just in case.

Your guests will not thank you for making them stand in the rain, unprotected. They won’t hear a word we say – they’ll be too busy thinking about getting wet. Besides, if you get your shoes wet and muddy, they’ll get ruined…. (and we hate that, don’t we?)

What about a rehearsal?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

Aaah! That one. Well, if you want one, or if it will make you feel more comfortable, of course we can do one. But if it’s not possible, or you don’t have to time, don’t worry, I will be there in plenty of time to sort everything and everyone out, before the ceremony. You never really needed one, anyway. 

I  even have an amazing rehearsal video. Ask me to send it to you.

How much time should we budget for the ceremony?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

I always ask that you budget about 45 minutes, from the time we first see a bridesmaid on her way down the aisle, through the ceremony, the kiss, the signing, the happy Mr & Mrs making their exit down the aisle – and into your big group photo with your guests, if you want one.

Feeling rushed is never  a good thing.

Most ceremonies will fit perfectly into that time frame – and it will go like lightning.

The bride is always late, isn't she?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

No - not anymore.

Think of your guests. Treat them with respect. Think of your groom – he’s waiting for you. Think of your schedule for the day. You’ll probably run out of time for your photos, if you are late. If you are worried about guests arriving late, invite them for 15 minutes, before you plan to arrive. No more than 15 minutes. Being any later than 15 minutes is plain rude.

What if my parents don't speak English?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

No worries. More than half of my gorgeous couples are just like you. I have lots of lovely ideas to make your parents, guests and grandparents feel more welcome. I’ll practise just about any language you give me – so long as you give it to me in phonetics and coach me a little – I am getting pretty good – especially at Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese and Mandarin! I’ll do anything you like to help.

Robyn was absolutely amazing. From the first meeting, she gave us the assurance that she will be there for us every step of the way, even when we are planning our wedding from overseas. She offered to run errands for us! She gave us a brilliant rehearsal the week of the wedding, 2 hours at night on an empty stomach! She even offered to come MC the first 20min of our reception, to kick it off with a bang! She did this on the busiest day of her career, 6 weddings! I don't think any other celebrant would have gone this above and beyond. Choosing her as celebrant is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Cathy! Stephen! I'm so glad you are happy. It was a pleasure. Every little bit of it. Yes - it was a late rehearsal - and I was hungry, but who cares? Yes, it was the biggest day I have ever done ( virtually unthinkable) but whipping your guests into a dancing, woohooing frenzy, and dancing along with your bridal party was the best possible way to end it. First and only mic drop of my career. Awesome!

WOW!!! Robyn went above and beyond for us! She was the perfect celebrant for our small wedding. Right from our first meeting she was knowledgeable, fun, genuinely caring, professional and more! Robyn took the time to get to know us to craft a meaningful ceremony that was true to us. She gave us advice when we needed it and was flexible with specific requests too. Her larger than life personality meant we could have a good laugh with her, and her expertise helped us to keep calm, which helped with the stress of planning the rest of the wedding! The little details and personal touches made a big difference. From printing our vows on cute cards, to sending us our ceremony in a beautifully booklet afterwards. Honestly of all our wedding vendors we worked with Robyn was the standout, and we don’t know what we would have done without her!

Tash! Jay! There are no words. You made me laugh. You made me cry, too. Your hugs were as good as they got. You were in. Your guests were in. I was 150% in. It was a joy - from the moment we first sat down to chat - and I will never forget you xxxxxxx

If you are looking for a celebrant/Master of Ceremonies, STOP SEARCHING. Robyn is your woman and possibly my favourite human of all time. She was the most amazing MC at our wedding, she was the glue that held everything together and ensured that everything ran so smoothly for the entire evening. She prepped the bridal party for some brilliant entrances, calmed the nerves of our speech-givers, made a huge deal about our grandparents (which everyone loved) and worked the crowd without being overly corny or cliche like so many other wedding MCs can be. She clearly has so much experience in the industry and gave us so many tips and tricks throughout our planning process, which made us so comfortable and relaxed on the night, and we were so suprised by how much fun we all had. (You think taking photos with every guest at every table is boring? Not Robyn's way!) All our guests were so happy with Robyn's services and we will not hesitate to recommend her to all of our friends and family.

Oh Rebecca! You, your lovely Luke, your amazing bouncy, joyful bridal party ( and your glorious grandparents) made my heart sing. Very single minute with you was a bundle of joy. I'd dance with your grandma any day! Big fat hugs to you all. You rock.

Originally going to go with someone else, and they couldn't do it, and I was referred to someone else, who also couldn't do it, so Robyn was referred to us. She was just amazing!! Honest to god, we were so so happy with her. I would have done it all again.

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant  

Niomi! I would do it all over again with you too xxxxxx

Robyn was/is amazing. Guiding us through planning our wedding in 2020 and then rescheduling our wedding to this year. Even with all the emails and phone calls we exchanged she was very supportive and was definitely the calming and reassuring voice you need in a celebrant/MC for your wedding. All of our guests were at ease with her and could not sing her enough praise through the whole night. You'd be making a great decision having Robyn be a part of your day.

What can I say about Robyn? In a word, she was simply AMAZING! We couldn't have been happier with our celebrant! She also was our MC for our reception and it was so fantastic to see her be so attentive, responsive and also getting all the guests involved so that they feel like they're not just there to sit and eat food whilst looking at the newlyweds! She certainly brings the hype, fun and warmth throughout the entire day/night! A true professional, extremely organised, and just a wonderful, wonderful human, we feel as though we've made a friend for life. Robyn, thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It wouldn't have been the same without you!

Robyn is the best. Not one of the best, but the absolute best. She is so helpful, creative, caring and amazing at what she does. She made our wedding day amazing. We cannot recommend her enough. The stories she creates are fabulous, and there was not a dry eye at the ceremony.

24 Apr 2021

Robyn was simply amazing! From our first meeting we just knew she was the right fit for us. She is a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of weddings and is always happy to offer to help. She made us feel at ease and guided us through the whole process. No question or request was too much trouble. Our ceremony was fun and lighthearted while also being filled with love. Thank you Robyn for making our day perfect!

23 Apr 2021

Robyn absolutely made our wedding. She gave the most beautiful ceremony that had us laughing one minute, in tears of joy the next. It was so beautiful and personal and really took our guests on a journey with us. Many of our guests complimented her amazing ceremony, I'm so glad we got it filmed so we can enjoy it over and over again!

We had Robyn as our marriage celebrant as well as our MC for the reception. Robyn has made every step of the way so much easier - from sorting out all the legality/paperwork side of things, introducing us to potential vendors that would fit the style that we were looking for as well as budget, and walking us through the whole process - she spent hours before the big day talking with us and learning about our journey as a couple, and helped us plan out/work through the logistics for the day with multiple redos and revisions. And then when it came to the big day itself - Robyn brought so much energy into the room as both celebrant and MC, improvising on the spot and working with our other vendors to smooth over any hiccups that cropped up. Robyn is truly a godsend! Couldn't rave about her enough :)

28 Mar 2021

Robyn is an amazing celebrant and MC! Our wedding ceremony was beautiful, and we had a fantastic reception. Robyn is super organised and energetic and will go the extra mile to tailor your wedding day for you, as well as make sure that everything runs smoothly on the day. Robyn is so professional and experienced, that we really benefited from her wisdom in planning our wedding, from her excellent vendor recommendations to her top tips on the day for walking down the aisle. We were asked by various guests if Robyn is a friend of ours, and that really is the feeling that we got working with Robyn: that she cares about us and wanted to make sure that our wedding day was perfect for us. We would wholeheartedly recommend Robyn as your celebrant and MC!

27 Mar 2021

We went with Robyn as our celebrant after seeing her at our good friend’s wedding and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Leading up to the date, she was responsive and attentive. Made the entire process stress-free and even helped us with things we didn’t even think about. On the day, Robyn was able to capture the beautiful moment we wanted, and created an engaging atmosphere for our guests. Thanks Robyn for being part of our special day!

Robyn was practically our fairy godmother on the day! She did an amazing job being our celebrant and MC for our wedding at Ottimo House. She gave us an absolutely beautiful ceremony & Reception She was incredibly professional, very responsive and knew how to handle the crowd. Her preparation was super organised, she asked for details of our relationship and used it to craft a beautiful story for the ceremony that wasn't over the top and remained genuine. She even greet everyone in Khmer and Russian language which my husbands family and my family told us that was very nice of her. Robyn had organised the whole reception timeline for us all we had to do was pick songs. She also helped pack things away for our vendors after reception Which we were very grateful for because we were so tired after the night. We couldn't have been happier

Robyn is an absolute delight to have at our wedding. She brings energy, joy and atmosphere to our wedding. Even my parents who cannot attend the wedding due to border restrictions loved her as they view the livestream. Robyn is very personal, she really gets to know you and help you write you own personal fairytale story to share with your friends and family. Not only does she write your love story, she also deliver it better than any Disney ever managed (and that's coming from a Disney fan). She is organized and give you handy tips throughout the day, make sure your ceremony runs smoothly and best of all stress free. My wife and I are so glad to have her at our wedding, we got to enjoy every moment of it.

Robyn was our world-class celebrant. She was energetic, elegant and eloquent. At times she was gentle and airy, but at others she let the gravitas of the moment through. Robyn was funny and filled the room with love. It was a ceremony beautifully written and wonderfully delivered. We hired Robyn to be our MC as well. Robyn was dazzling in both her sparkling sequin dress, and in her supreme skills as master of ceremonies. What everybody saw that night was an exceptional, entertaining and engaging MC. She kept our guests laughing with the games she planned. But I saw something different that night. I looked at Robyn and I saw someone who had worked so hard, and went beyond the call of duty for my wife and I. I saw someone who was as perfect behind the scenes as she was on stage. She's simply the best in the business.
