Patricia Ma is a Sydney based Bilingual Marriage Celebrant and Event Host MC. With years of experience she is here to create a unique and individual ceremony for your special day.


I’m Patricia and I am a bilingual marriage celebrant.

With over 15 years experience in events I am able to craft personal, individual and touching ceremonies that will bring brightness and colour to the serious part of the day. I am also fluent in English and Cantonese, can perform the ceremony in Mandarin if required and have been a bilingual MC since 2002.

I love to apply my experience in events and as a former radio presenter & producer I can assure you that your day will run perfectly no matter what the circumstances. Before you arrive, I setup the signing table; check the sound; liaise with your suppliers; run through the ceremony with the bridal party; greet your parents or rep and make sure you’re okay before we start the ceremony.

With my amazing eye for details and organised approach, I have a special talent for keeping things running smoothly.

I am here to get everyone excited for an amazing ceremony and the most important is to make sure you have a memorable day.

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

I look forward to meeting you both

Questions and Answers

How long will the ceremony last?

Patricia Ma Civil Marriage Celebrant

Most wedding/civil ceremonies last between 20 and 30 minutes. Signing paperwork can take an additional 5 to 10 minutes. It is best to make sure that the ceremony content takes longer than the signing – it is your vows that the your guests have come to witness; don’t let them be over too quickly.

Does it matter how many attendants we have?

Patricia Ma Civil Marriage Celebrant

You can have as many - or as few. Big or small, it's your wedding day, so let's make it as beautiful as we possibly can. 

Some of the most memorable weddings I have been a part of have been 10 people of less. 

And... indeed, we cannot do much during Covid. Be warm, be memorable, be your day, will do! 

Our parents and relatives don't speak English, what you could do for us?

Patricia Ma Civil Marriage Celebrant

No worries, that’s why you’ve me be your celebrant. I can perform the ceremony in Cantonese and Mandarin, or I’ll practise any language you give me long as you give it to me in phonetics and coach me a bit. I have lots of lovely ideas to make your parents, grandparents, relatives and guests feel more welcome. 

Does the bride have to be given away?

Patricia Ma Civil Marriage Celebrant

No. The traditional giving away of the bride by her father is still extremely popular, but if it doesn’t suit you, there’s no need to do it.

Alternatively, there are lots of variations to choose from (like bride and groom walk-in together; bride’s parents or grandparents).

Ultimately, you can ignore this, walkin by yourself if you feel comfortable). 

What time will you be there?

Patricia Ma Civil Marriage Celebrant

I will be onsite no less than 20 minutes before the scheduled ceremony time.

Patricia was my Celebrant for my wedding and she did a amazing job. Though all my guests were English speaking, Patricia kindly translated a portion of the ceremony to Cantonese so that it could be recorded and shared with overseas family who were not able to come to Australia. We met twice in person before the ceremony and Patricia was open and friendly. She was flexible with time as we were not able to meet during work hours. Patricia’s detailed questionnaire meant that she was able to to take to time to get to know our story and tailor our ceremony Patricia also printed our vows for the ceremony and added special little touches to our vow cards. The whole process was smooth and profession and I would recommend Patricia especially if you are after a bilingual celebrant.

My first impression of Patricia Ma was Wow! She is so organised!! She was so caring and spend her time listening to what I wanted for my wedding, she offered her expertise suggestions and advice throughout, she created a perfect runsheet for us, and got all the background things and paperwork done for us. She made everything a whole lot easier for a stressing bride!!! I looked everywhere to find a trilingual celebrant/MC and I was so happy when I found Patricia! She translated Mandarin, Cantonese and English for our guests. Patricia engaged our guests with well spoken commentaries, created hype, laughter and a loving atmosphere. All our guests had the greatest time. I highly recommend Patricia to assist in your wedding festive whether it’s just as a Celebrant or MC or Translator or all. She is amazing!!! She is reliable!!! She is cohesive with other suppliers!! She was perfect!!!

Patricia was amazing! The whole process was stress free and a total delight for us. She really goes above and beyond and took care of everything with a wonderful smile on her face. We received so many compliments on how genuine and heartfelt the ceremony was, we both felt as though Patricia was the best bilingual celebrant (who can speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English), choosing her was one the best decision we’ve made. Highly recommend Patricia as a celebrant! 10/10.

Thank you Patricia for being my marriage celebrant. I had a small wedding at home. Patricia was very nice and professional. She was also very patient when I have any questions before the wedding. She helped me to make my wedding day unforgettable. Thank you so much!

Very nice and enthusiastic woman! You don’t need to worry about everything. Patricia will consider all thing.

Patricia was absolutely amazing as our marriage celebrant. Service was friendly, professional and so helpful. Everything organised and planned beforehand, she also made the day less stressful and everything ran smoothly. Could not recommend Patricia any more!

20 May 2022

Really good and lovely. Thanks for your support. Thanks for your everything. Very patient and give us a lovely day.

19 May 2022

Patricia was the best decision I made while planning my wedding. I needed a bilingual celebrant to allow overseas guests to feel included in the ceremony but Patricia went above and beyond. She is so lovely and was super responsive to my questions. She also recommended my photographer and make up artist to me, who were both brilliant. If you need a celebrant, Patricia is who I would recommend!

Patricia is one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting; she is organised, methodical and amazing but most of all ensures your happiness is at the centre of everything. It is important to me to get quick responses. Patricia replied immediately despite the late notice and gave me all of the information upfront without overwhelming me, making the build up to our special day effortless. We had a video call so we could get to know her a little better and, by the time we met I felt as though I had known her for years. Patricia has such an easy going, pleasant nature, you warm to her from the minute you meet her. I can’t thank you enough Patricia. You made my life so much easier leading up to the wedding and made our day so special.

Patricia Ma was lovely to deal with and made our ceremony extra special with her bright energy, sense of humour and empathy! We wanted to find a marriage celebrant who was bilingual, Patricia Ma ticked all the right boxes with her ability to speak Mandarin. I appreciate the special touches she makes for each of her clients, eg a unique set of vow cards that us couples get to keep forever. Patricia is very organized and on the day, was proactive and created a harmonious atmosphere between guests, photographers and us :)Thank you so much Patricia.

After having to find a marriage celebrant 5 days before our wedding due to unprecedent events, Patricia came to our aid and we were so grateful to have had her officiate our marriage, she is a fun and bubbly person to work with. Highly recommend booking with her for her services as a celebrant/mc as she will bring joy to your special day with her energy :)

12 Mar 2022

We wanted a simple wedding and honestly I did not put much thought into it. When I read Patricia's ceremony script, I cried, it was so beautiful. For some wedding is mere legal process, but Patricia made every minute a special one. The process of getting there was so well organised and what a great communication. I am so happy I found Patricia.

We had Patricia as our Tea and Civil Marriage Celebrant recently. Very organised through out the entire ceremony cycle start from initial virtual meeting, preparation, paperwork until the actual ceremony. She is also very responsive in replying our inquires even in the middle of the night. Definitely 5 stars for her services and highly recommended.
