Hi, I’m Rach, lover of love, event planner extraordinaire and magic-making wedding celebrant for couples from Port Stephens to Port Macquarie and everywhere in between

When it comes to your wedding and your ceremony, you two… your story, your love, your way of doing things, is everything. As your wedding celebrant, I bring all that to life and take care of all. the. things for you. 

This means you’ll feel confident and comfortable knowing what’s going to happen, what to say, and how and when to say it. I’ll be there to help you plan, then manage your ceremony on the day to keep it running smoothly. Phew, right?

There’s a reason everyone says, “your wedding day goes so fast” – because it’s true! That’s why as your wedding celebrant, I’ll find ways through the day to pause and help you relax and take in all the magic.

Working with me you’ll get:

  • A ceremony that feels like ‘you two’… your story, your love, your way (so it gives everyone all the tingles)
  • Unlimited support as we plan your ceremony: face-to-face, phone, text or email – I’m there for you!
  • An experienced event manager organising everything for your ceremony so you can relax and get on with planning the rest of your day
  • Access to my exclusive log in section of my websitre, a treasure trove of resources to help you prepare for your special day
  • Your ceremony running smoothly, with me taking care of everything
  • A beautiful ceremony written for you
  • A professional state-of-the-art PA system and cordless microphone
  • Free access to my Bracken Methof of Vows via Wow The Crowd
  • Help you feel totally confident reading your vows with your very own printed cards and tips on how to use the microphone
  • If you need it: reminders to help you to stop, breathe, that “you’ve got this” and everything is fine so you can enjoy every moment instead of it flying by

What “I do”

(yep I’m totally going there)

Do it your way with a choice of packages:

  • Your Ceremony, Your Way
  • Short and sweet: a fuss-free option
  • Let’s do it all again: to renew your vows
  • Just the two of us (ish): an elopement with just the two of you and a couple of witnesses

And to carry that magic vibe through your day, I can also help with:

  • MCing at your reception
  • Styling your ceremony to create the perfect look and feel

Where “I do” it

I work with couples in these locations: 

  • Forster-Tuncurry
  • Port Stephens
  • Barrington Tops
  • Port Macquarie

How “I do” it

Easy peasy:

1. Let’s chat

2. Let’s make it formal

3. Let’s plan your ceremony

4. Let’s do this!

5. Let’s make it official

I’m there for you two, every step of the way.

Got questions or like to get to know me a little better? It all starts with a chat.

Good question, because couples ask me that all the time. That’s why I share my free Step-by-Step Ceremony Guide: so you get the full picture of what needs to happen, when, and who needs to do it. It’s all about feeling confident and comfortable so you can get on with enjoying your day.

As a registered marriage celebrant, I’m authorised to legally marry you and make it all official. But I also take care of all the details of your ceremony and give you support and inspiration, then make it run smoothly on the day. My job is to make your ceremony feel like effortless magic so you can just enjoy it.

I love love, so I travel to work with couples in Forster-Tuncurry, Port Stephens, Newcastle, Central Coast, Sydney, Hunter Valley, Barrington Tops, Port Macquarie and beyond.

Well yes, but you need to plan and organise the ceremony and some legal stuff that needs to happen first. We’ll lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage at least one calendar month before your ceremony, and I need to see your ID to confirm your identities. Oh, and it’s worth mentioning here that legally you need to be over 18 or have a court order allowing you to marry if you’re 16–18 years old.

Absolutely! I have a range of packages to suit.

Why yes, I can. In fact, I’d love to! I offer a Style Your Ceremony package to bring your dreams to life.

Poor Uncle Barry. Yep, he tells a mean joke, but deep down he doesn’t like public speaking. So why not make it easy for him (aka your family and friends), and especially you (so you can relax), by having me MC your reception?

Imagine a reception where everything runs smoothly. With me as your stage manager, I’ll take care of:

?? Introducing the bridal party as you enter

?? Introducing the speaker and keep time (being kind while I make sure your guests don’t fall asleep with too-long speeches)

?? Liaising with the venue for timing of meals and toasts

?? Liaising with your musician or DJ

?? Troubleshooting and fixing anything that comes up 

In short, I’m a warm, engaging presenter who makes people laugh, cry and cheer at the right times.

It’s peace of mind for you at your reception. Awesome, right?

We’ll talk about your dress code, colours, theme and style. From there, you have a couple of choices: 

1. Leave it to me to choose (I have a whole wardrobe of celebrant attire that does not include stuffy suits or name badges)

2. Choose an outfit from photos of me modelling said professional wardrobe

3. We can discuss your dress code and colours, then I’ll give you some suggestions on the perfect outfit to work in with you

I’ve got you covered, because you’ll get my ‘How to Write Your Vows Step-by-Step’ guide and I’ll be there to help (as well as giving you cards to read your vows from during the ceremony – awesome, right!?).

If you are looking for the perfect celebrant (and MC) Rachel is the one! We couldn’t have had a more perfect day even if we tried, thanks to Rachel! Rachel is so positive, professional, kind and can have a good laugh. Rachel is so open to any ideas or input we had but also wasn’t afraid to offer us her ideas/input (which we absolutely loved). Rachel was there every step of the way, from start to finish. If it weren’t for Rachel I would’ve been a much more nervous and anxious person on our wedding day, she helped me so much. She made our day complete and absolutely magical. Thank you for being apart of our special day and I’m so proud to say you were our celebrant! Steph & Brae

If I could give Rachel 6 stars I would! Rachel makes the entire process so easy and run so smoothly. The resources she provides you are completely invaluable I know it was my wedding ceremony but I do think it was one of the best I have seen. Rachel has a great way of looking into your personality and capturing it wonderful. It was the perfect mix of formal, romantic and funny. I would recommend Rachel to anyone who will listen 😂

Rachel was amazing, we could not recommend her enough. Rachel supported us all throughout the wedding planning and made our cermony so so special and made it personlised and just feel like us. It wouldn't have been possible with you.

Rachel is an amazing celebrant who was there for us every step of the way. She supported us with whatever we needed, when we needed and how we needed. She wrote a beautiful ceremony that fit us perfectly and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. Our day wouldn’t have been the same without her and we are so grateful! 1000% recommend Rachel if you are looking for a celebrant, she will go above and beyond for you and your special day! Much love to Rachel, thank you again ♥️
