Rita Cohann is REMARKABLE. I was recommended to her and instantly knew from the first email that I found the woman to marry my (now) wife and I! She’s simply magnificent. The way she translated our love story was so beautiful. Our family and friends saw our journey in a new way! She really GOT us. Rita was so organised, kept us on track with what we needed to do, and even her handwriting on our Marriage Certificate was exquisite. Being in the wedding industry myself, (Hair & Makeup), I see a LOT of celebrants. I can say with all certainty that she is THE BEST Celebrant I have ever seen. I’m so excited to have had this amazing woman as my own Celebrant at my wedding. She truly made it sooooo incredibly special! I’ll be using Rita for every event in my life going forward and I recommend her without hesitation. Thank you, Rita, you are wonderful! xoxox

We had Rita as our Marriage celebrant in October, and couldn't have been happier with her. From the first moment we met her, we loved how warm and friendly she was. She has the art of capturing people attention without even trying. Every time we met with her, she treated us like long long friends and was genuinely interested in who we were and what brought us together. We loved her on our wedding day. She told our story beautifully with a few laughs thrown in. All our guests were raving about her afterwards and how she made the ceremony personal, but fun and got everyone feeling like they were involved. Rita is such a warm, welcoming person and an incredible celebrant. We definitely recommend Rita to everyone looking for a celebrant. Rita makes the ceremony about you and your story, in such a fun, classy way!

From the moment we met Rita at a Wedding Expo, we knew that she was the one we wanted to marry us. She instantly made us feel comfortable and felt like we had known her for ages. Throughout all of the horrible COVID time, Rita was so understanding and flexible and was so helpful throughout the whole process. The wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect as Rita made all of us smile, laugh and have such a fantastic time! We had such amazing feedback from all of our guests as to how great Rita was throughout the whole ceremony and that they will recommend her to other family and friends. We couldn't have wished for a better celebrant to marry us and we feel so lucky to have Rita there apart of our special day so from the bottom of our heart, thank you so very much for everything.

Rita is the epitome of professional and warm. We felt that she was invested in us and our story from the very beginning. Her voice, her intonation and her flair were perfect for us. She made amazing suggestions to make our ceremony our own and we loved it. It was everything we wanted. We were originally a 2020 couple and we thought Rita did everything she could to help us through all the uncertainty covid threw up. Absolutely love her, she will be a special person to us forever.

Not knowing where to actually begin (and with a plethora of Celebrants out there), not to mention all the advice from friends and family; we were delighted to find Rita via a Google search! Her prompt response, personable style and flair made her the obvious choice. She listened to our needs and discussed and advised on all matters that came up. Thanks to Covid 19 a few cancellations and re-bookings ensued, all supported with positivity from Rita till the actual big day arrived. Nervously, we gathered on the day hoping all would proceed as planned, promised and hoped for. We were not let down with Rita' s warmth and assuredness ..... and the little extras that followed. We would not hesitate to recommend Rita for your special day. As 'second time rounders' she had our backs and knew that we needed a touching, emotional and moving ceremony to unite us.

Rita was a great support before, during and after the wedding.

Rita is such a wonderful and lovely person to be around. She has married many couples, and when it comes down to a very important occasion, the experience really does counts! For us as a couple, we wanted someone who got us and knew what she was doing. Rita ticked all the boxes and more. Rita guided us through the process, and had an eye for detail. She delivered a civil ceremony that reflected us as a couple. We wanted a loving memorable ceremony that was also straight to the point with little fluff. Rita delivered a great ceremony, highlighted the most important parts and did such a great job with bringing it all together. Would highly recommend Rita. She handles everything, is very professional and organised, and kept us both relaxed on the day.

Rita was amazing! From the moment we met her at one of the many wedding exhibitions we attended, we knew instantly she was the celebrant for us! Rita made us feel at ease by answering all of our questions and showed genuine care and professionalism towards my future husband and I, as well as our families. All of our wedding guests could see how invested and passionate Rita was and all commented about the great choice we made in picking Rita to marry us! I would highly recommend Rita and would give her 10 stars if I could! :) Thank you for making our day special Rita! xxx

Rita was an absolute treat to work with. She helped mentor my wife and I through the marriage process from start to finish. Our experience with Rita was comforting, reliable and genuinely enjoyable. Her attention to detail is impeccable, as she took the time to learn about both of us and our story. We could not be happier with Rita's service and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that perfect celebrant.

I would just like to thank Rita so so much for being a part of our wedding on Sunday! She was absolutely amazing and made my husband and I feel at ease even standing up in front of everyone! Rita helped us so much with our vows and we are over the moon with how our wedding turned out. We couldn't have rated her high enough on the ABIA website. All our friends and family were raving about just how wonderful she was! We were so lucky to have such a caring celebrant for our wedding,

Rita was absolutely amazing since the day we met her. She genuinely cared to know our story and narrated it beautifully at our wedding. She guided us with our vows and the entire ceremony. I had two dads and children walking down the aisle and somehow she made it all work :) She even did part of our ceremony in French because of the french side of our family. Nothing was too much. She offered advice which was above and beyond her celebrant duties just so our day would go smoothly. She was very entertaining throughout the ceremony. Turned every little hiccup into an amusement. All our guests loved her and commended her work. Rita lives and breathes weddings, she made our day truely special and memorable :)

Rita was perfect! She invited us to her place and gave us so much advice about different things we could do for our wedding which was amazing because we didn't really know what to do. She helped me correct my grammar for my evening speech and write the perfect vows for my partner. The rehearsal was so great because she just knew exactly what we needed to do.

Rita was absolutely amazing for our special day. Throughout everything leading up she was incredibly supportive, prompt and wonderfully professional. She made the big day 100% personalised for my newly wedded wife and I and the way she handled everything, from our story to the signing of our marriage certificate was absolutely perfect. Hire Rita Cohann as your celebrant. There is no better person for the task.

We had the most wonderful day and really appreciated Rita's support and professionalism on the day and in the lead up to the wedding. Rita is a wonderful celebrant - she helped us to relax when we were nervous and she guided us through the ceremony with ease. We could not have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you!

Rita is an exceptional celebrant. Dean and I felt totally comfortable and at ease with Rita from the moment we met her and we both knew instantly that we just had to have her as our celebrant. Rita is outgoing, extremely professional, very organised, and pedantic with every detail. She made stepping through the paperwork simple and enjoyable and our pre-wedding catch-ups with Rita were enjoyable and full of laughter. Our wedding ceremony was the most memorable part of our day - it was beautifully personalised, romantic and relaxed. We are truly grateful to Rita for creating a well structured ceremony, for her incredibly warm and sincere delivery, for her beautiful words and for making us feel really special on our big day. Thanks Rita. We were being sincere when we called you the best celebrant ever.

Could not speak highly enough of Rita. From the moment my husband and I met Rita we knew organising our ceremony was going to be a fun, easy and a well supported process. Rita was always very easy to get in contact with, guided us through everything we needed to organise and most importantly put together a brilliant very personalised ceremony for us. Not only were we thrilled but all our guests commented how amazing Rita was. Thanks so much again Rita, we would hesitate to recommend you to anyone!!

Rita was the most wonderful wedding celebrant! Not only were we thrilled with her services, everyone at our wedding commented what a great celebrant she was. We used Rita as she spoke French and our wedding was a marriage between a Frenchman and an Aussie. Not only did Rita speak some french, she went out of the way to include and write some french into our wedding ceremony. Being organised myself, I absolutely loved how incredibly professional Rita was to deal with, so efficient, keeping us on track at every meeting. Responding to emails and phone calls very efficiently and also helped us with vows, music and suppliers. We couldn't have been happier having Rita marry us and would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Rita!

Rita was the perfect celebrant. Actually, she's not just a celebrant, Rita is the perfect wedding planner / mother figure / celebrant extraordinaire. From the first time we met her she was super efficient and organized us and got us in line. She knew our venue (Quat Quatta) perfectly and was able to visualize every step of the ceremony for us. She was highly professional and organizes her own sound system and all the legalities for you. And she is incredibly warm, and super helpful with all the little questions that pop up when you are planning a wedding. I can't recommend Rita highly enough - you will be lucky to have her!

Thanks to Rita to be a part of our big day. My wife and I enjoyed wedding and the service provided by Rita. Rita is a very professional and attention-to-detail celebrant who prepared our wedding very well. Rita also coordinated very well with our photographer and videographer. We highly recommend Rita for wedding celebrant.

We knew we wanted Rita to be our celebrant at our first meeting. She was warm, bubbly and very commited to creating the perfect ceremony with us. Despite not knowing what we wanted at the time, Rita made us feel at ease as she verbally walked us through what a ceremony at Quat Quatta would be like having previously conducted ceremonies there. Rita is a cheerful perfectionist and very insightful about what makes a ceremony memorable and enjoyable for everyone involved from the couple to the parents, family and guests. She insists on a rehearsal - something many celebrants do not, and in hindsight, we are very glad we had one and so were our parents and bridal party! With so many things to figure out for our wedding, we felt we were in safe hands with Rita as we knew she had our ceremony completely under control. On the day, everything went smoothly because of Rita's professionalism and her amazing ability to look after guests, check on the bride, calm the groom, ensure the bridal party knew what they were doing, and liaise with the photographers, videographers and reception staff to conduct the perfect ceremony. We didn't have to worry about anything and that's what we loved about her! Thanks so much Rita. From the comments we have received, we will be seeing you again at the weddings of our friends and family members!

Rita was so incredible as the celebrant for our special day right from our first meeting to the very end. Rita made us feel so comfortable and at ease with such a milestone in our lives. Rita was great with our bridal party, families and guests, we laughed and cried and had the best day of our lives. Thank you so much Rita for being such an important part of our day and sharing in a memory we will treasure forever. You were born to do this!
