I would like to thank Rita and Michael for helping us create such an amazing day. Rita was so easy and calming during the planning stage and the ceremony. They were so patient while we were waiting for the late bride and stepped in to became planners helping us with the music and the timing of the brides entrance. Her calm style really helped put together a ceremony that reflected the strong emotions which was important for us. We really appreciate everything they did.

We cannot fault Rita Doherty and her smooth roady, Michael Gerard Doherty. This dynamic duo calmed a nervous groom, electrified the crowd and, supported the bride like no other celebrant team we have ever seen. From the moment we met Rita, we were truly in love. She captivated us over a coffee in Altona, and during our wedding prep, she regularly checked-in with us, offered support, and ideas, and made the entire process so unbelievable seamless. We gained another Aunty on the 10.11.18, as she buzzed around our wedding guest crowd. Her instructions clear and concise, her voice warm and docile. We were truly mesmerised by her care, attention to detail, and mastery of the microphone. She put in 100% and did things that were beyond her role as a celebrant. Michael, soothed the groom, and kept him in check through the ceremony. His amazing stereo abilities, ensured that our walking down the aisle song was loud and clear. Without these two remarkable people, our wedding would have been great, but they made it magical. The crowd was charmed, and so were we. They are apart of our family now ❤️

From the initial contact via phone to the moment we first met Rita, we knew we had found the right person to guide and support us along the journey to our wedding day. Within 10 minutes of first meeting Rita, she had my now beautiful wife and myself, laughing and in tears (happy tears that is!) as we sat there sharing stories on how my wife and I first met, what we loved about each other and what brought us to getting married. The relaxed atmosphere, Rita’s attention to detail and offers of support and guidance, alleviated all of our pre wedding jitters. What can we say about the big day? Just amazing! Rita had everything organised and there was nothing left for us to do apart from, be nervous, read our vows, (Rita was wonderful with helping us out there as well) and then say, I do!

Rita was very warm, comforting and friendly. We loved her energy and the service was beautiful. Guided us very well through the process.

Rita was an extremely kind, helpful and caring celebrant to work with in the lead up to our wedding in early 2020. I had a vision to create a ceremony that was a little different to others- different members of the bridal party would present most of the ceremony. Rita embraced this idea with an open mind and heart, allowing us to work together, bouncing ideas back and forth right up until the day. Her partner Mike was also extremely helpful- he played pre ceremony music over their great speakers and throughout the whole day, Rita and Mike felt like family!

Rita was absolutely amazing from the moment we first spoke on the phone right until the end of the ceremony. Her calm nature kept us relaxed on the day. She made our dream day everything we had hoped for. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant!

We have had the privilege of witnessing a ceremony done by Rita and now been privileged to be part of a ceremony by Rita and we wouldn't have changed a single thing! You made me feel relaxed and calm and the ceremony was smooth, quick and seemed effortless which was everything we wanted! I cant recommend your services any higher especially when you add in your amazing roadie husband who also helped on the day and who is just as great as you are!

Rita was not only fantastic on the day but also in the lead up. We couldn't of been happier, she put us at ease and had great energy throughout the ceremony. Rita got all of our family and friends involved and we had so many compliments from our guests. We had the bonus of having Michael, Rita's husband, put together our music for our ceremony. Thank you for making our ceremony so special and personal. We could not recommend Rita enough!

Rita, from the moment i found you 20 months ago & we talked for awhile on the phone i felt instantly comfortable with you & even right up till the special day when it finally arrived you were with Kyle & I the whole way . Kyle and I couldn't have picked a better celebrant if we tried. You were so down to earth, relaxed, understand our needs and what we wished for our ceremony to be like. You laughed with us on many meet ups. From the bottom of Kyle & I hearts we thankyou so so much and we will be recommending you to others who wish for a relaxed & fun celebrant like you xo

We were so lucky to have Rita as our celebrant. She made us feel super relaxed and she prepared us well for the big day! Both our families loved the ceremony and loved her! We would highly recommend her to any lucky couple getting married.

From the very first phone call with Rita she was warm, calming and I knew she was the celebrant for us. Rita really took the time to get to know us as a couple over the months leading up to our wedding day, resulting in such a special and personalised ceremony. She also took care of all the paperwork leaving is one less task to organise! The whole process was made a breeze thanks to wonderful Rita and we must give a special mention to her husband and right hand man Mike, who is equally as kind and lovely! They are a beautiful team to have present on your wedding day.
