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!

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 wanted to say a huge thank you to Rita for everything she did for our wedding. 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 I can describe how thankful Jamie and I was to have you as our celebrant. Everyone complimented how brilliant and well the service went. Not only were you organised but you planned everything so well and made sure we were ready and the day went perfect. I can see why you were the celebrant winner of 2018. Thankyou

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!
