They call me The Wedding Pixie - and I really, really like it. I even bought the shoes to match.

I'm Robyn Pattison, award winning marriage celebrant  and OMG Wedding MC in Sydney, NSW.

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

I absolutely love my job - (it's a little like being a fairy godmother - but never, ever like a robot.)

My ceremonies are always moment of light, happiness - and usually, laughter - but never cheesy, stiff or dull. 
They are absolutely unique to each couple - because every couple I meet is different.

Personal and intimate, fresh and engaging, your wedding ceremony will be a real, living, breathing moment; about you, and for you, so that you, your family and your guests come away feeling like you have been part of something really special.

My receptions are so carefully organised  - and managed - that all you'll see is the fun and the laughter - and lots of dancing.

PS - Want to make the whole day easy and fun and fabulous? Talk to me about being your MC , too!  ( I'll even dance with your mum!)


Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Should we have a wet-weather back-up plan?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

Yes! You really should. We all hope that your day is shiny and bright blue – but you never know…. It is worth spending a little extra, or making arrangements with your reception venue, for just in case.

Your guests will not thank you for making them stand in the rain, unprotected. They won’t hear a word we say – they’ll be too busy thinking about getting wet. Besides, if you get your shoes wet and muddy, they’ll get ruined…. (and we hate that, don’t we?)

What about a rehearsal?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

Aaah! That one. Well, if you want one, or if it will make you feel more comfortable, of course we can do one. But if it’s not possible, or you don’t have to time, don’t worry, I will be there in plenty of time to sort everything and everyone out, before the ceremony. You never really needed one, anyway. 

I  even have an amazing rehearsal video. Ask me to send it to you.

How much time should we budget for the ceremony?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

I always ask that you budget about 45 minutes, from the time we first see a bridesmaid on her way down the aisle, through the ceremony, the kiss, the signing, the happy Mr & Mrs making their exit down the aisle – and into your big group photo with your guests, if you want one.

Feeling rushed is never  a good thing.

Most ceremonies will fit perfectly into that time frame – and it will go like lightning.

The bride is always late, isn't she?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

No - not anymore.

Think of your guests. Treat them with respect. Think of your groom – he’s waiting for you. Think of your schedule for the day. You’ll probably run out of time for your photos, if you are late. If you are worried about guests arriving late, invite them for 15 minutes, before you plan to arrive. No more than 15 minutes. Being any later than 15 minutes is plain rude.

What if my parents don't speak English?

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant

No worries. More than half of my gorgeous couples are just like you. I have lots of lovely ideas to make your parents, guests and grandparents feel more welcome. I’ll practise just about any language you give me – so long as you give it to me in phonetics and coach me a little – I am getting pretty good – especially at Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese and Mandarin! I’ll do anything you like to help.

Robyn was absolutely amazing. From the first meeting, she gave us the assurance that she will be there for us every step of the way, even when we are planning our wedding from overseas. She offered to run errands for us! She gave us a brilliant rehearsal the week of the wedding, 2 hours at night on an empty stomach! She even offered to come MC the first 20min of our reception, to kick it off with a bang! She did this on the busiest day of her career, 6 weddings! I don't think any other celebrant would have gone this above and beyond. Choosing her as celebrant is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Cathy! Stephen! I'm so glad you are happy. It was a pleasure. Every little bit of it. Yes - it was a late rehearsal - and I was hungry, but who cares? Yes, it was the biggest day I have ever done ( virtually unthinkable) but whipping your guests into a dancing, woohooing frenzy, and dancing along with your bridal party was the best possible way to end it. First and only mic drop of my career. Awesome!

WOW!!! Robyn went above and beyond for us! She was the perfect celebrant for our small wedding. Right from our first meeting she was knowledgeable, fun, genuinely caring, professional and more! Robyn took the time to get to know us to craft a meaningful ceremony that was true to us. She gave us advice when we needed it and was flexible with specific requests too. Her larger than life personality meant we could have a good laugh with her, and her expertise helped us to keep calm, which helped with the stress of planning the rest of the wedding! The little details and personal touches made a big difference. From printing our vows on cute cards, to sending us our ceremony in a beautifully booklet afterwards. Honestly of all our wedding vendors we worked with Robyn was the standout, and we don’t know what we would have done without her!

Tash! Jay! There are no words. You made me laugh. You made me cry, too. Your hugs were as good as they got. You were in. Your guests were in. I was 150% in. It was a joy - from the moment we first sat down to chat - and I will never forget you xxxxxxx

If you are looking for a celebrant/Master of Ceremonies, STOP SEARCHING. Robyn is your woman and possibly my favourite human of all time. She was the most amazing MC at our wedding, she was the glue that held everything together and ensured that everything ran so smoothly for the entire evening. She prepped the bridal party for some brilliant entrances, calmed the nerves of our speech-givers, made a huge deal about our grandparents (which everyone loved) and worked the crowd without being overly corny or cliche like so many other wedding MCs can be. She clearly has so much experience in the industry and gave us so many tips and tricks throughout our planning process, which made us so comfortable and relaxed on the night, and we were so suprised by how much fun we all had. (You think taking photos with every guest at every table is boring? Not Robyn's way!) All our guests were so happy with Robyn's services and we will not hesitate to recommend her to all of our friends and family.

Oh Rebecca! You, your lovely Luke, your amazing bouncy, joyful bridal party ( and your glorious grandparents) made my heart sing. Very single minute with you was a bundle of joy. I'd dance with your grandma any day! Big fat hugs to you all. You rock.

Originally going to go with someone else, and they couldn't do it, and I was referred to someone else, who also couldn't do it, so Robyn was referred to us. She was just amazing!! Honest to god, we were so so happy with her. I would have done it all again.

Robyn Pattison Civil Marriage Celebrant  

Niomi! I would do it all over again with you too xxxxxx

We booked Robyn as our celebrant based on a friend's recommendation and it was easily one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. Robyn is incredibly experienced, calming and enthusiastic, which not only created the right tone for the ceremony, but also served us well in the lead up to the wedding as she offered a lot of advice and support with navigating the complexity of COVID-safe weddings. Robyn's true talent is storytelling, and she did a wonderful job of weaving in our inputs and crafting a beautiful narrative for our ceremony. I know Robyn's contributions, some of which were small and subtle, helped to create an amazing day for us, and we are very grateful for that. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Robyn as your celebrant!

After such a tough year during 2020, Robyn has been a wonderful celebrant. She was always available when needed, had lots of suggestions, catered to our particular needs and even suggested our photographer. Our wedding ceremony was a micro ceremony, but it was nothing less than what would have otherwise been with a large ceremony - it was so wonderfully personalised, thoughtful and detailed. Robyn will give you homework and my advice would be that the more detail that you can provide her, the more that you will get out of it. Robyn, we would like to thank you again for being so wonderful, particularly on the rainy day that we had, for being so flexible when we needed to cancel and reschedule, and for being calm when we needed it. All the best <3

Robyn was the celebrant and MC for our wedding at the Grounds at the beginning of the year. She was fantastic, Robyn was so attentive to detail and so helpful in sharing with us her words/plan for our big day as well as helping us perfect our vows. On the day, she was super on top of everything - making sure that everyone was involved and knew what to do. Due to the challenges that COVID presented us she was also very helpful and inventive in coming up with fun ideas for all of our guests to ensure our wedding was a success. She also had worked with a lot of our suppliers before too so she got along with them so easily. I highly recommend Robyn for her sound abilities as a celebrant and MC - thank you so much Robyn!

Robyn was so lovely and experienced, we had only 2 zoom call with her before the ceremony day and it all done super well. She made our ceremony much better and nicer than we imaged:)

12 Dec 2020

Robyn is a fantastic celebrant, and im sure everyone hears that, but she really is, she helps with a lot of tips pre-wedding, happy to do rehearsals and can give you contacts for anything you might be missing, also gives a lot of constructive feed back on how to make the wedding day more special or more stream lined to make things flow more easily, she engages with the audience on the day and helped co ordinate things with the photographer and videographer for us. she came highly recommended from my cousin and other friends who she has been a celebrant for, Even my videographer said she is the best in the business and does a minimum of 10 weddings a year with her out of chance.

5 Dec 2020

Robyn was an absolute delight to work with to ensure we have a perfect wedding ceremony. Not only was Robyn's story about us amazing but the experience in getting us ready from giving her information about us and to helping us with our vows, it was just so easy! We can't recommend Robyn enough, thank you again!

Robyn is the best celebrant and MC. She made life so easy and she made us have the best time ever!! Stress free planning woooo

21 Nov 2020

We can not recommend Robyn highly enough as both our wedding celebrant and MC for reception. She truly is the wedding pixie, bringing fun and warmth to the day. She took the time to get to know us and our story, and told it in the most beautiful and magical way. She is very organised and covered every detail of both ceremony and reception to ensure the day ran smoothly. We love her vibrant energy and ability to include our loved ones and her talent for working a room. Our guests raved about her! We were blown away by her preparation and special touches including interactive games and making the day entertaining and interactive. Our wedding day would not have been as memorable without Robyn.

11 Nov 2020

I just wanted to say thank you for such a beautiful service. Your professionalism and guidance to all parties was amazing and the words you spoke made us feel as though you knew us both on the deepest level. I know we will all remember the occasion with happy (and at times emotional 😀) thoughts and will be recommending you to our friends and family for any upcoming weddings.

Robyn Pattison is, by far, the most incredibly amazing individual we have ever met and we are so thankful to have had her as our celebrant. My wife (then fiance) and I chose to have a very small and intimate ceremony and for a couple with little-to-no experience regarding planning their own weddings, to have Robyn's insight, experience and support throughout made everything so easy and manageable. Whether big or small we can honestly say that without a doubt, Robyn will add nothing but joy, ease, wisdom and love to your day that we truly do not believe anyone else could have provided. From the bottom of our hearts we honestly could not thank Robyn enough and regardless of the little time we have known her, we have nothing but love and gratitude for her and her work. Kindest regards, Josh and Alynnis

10 Oct 2020

Robyn's experience on the wedding day showed from the moment we met her. She guided us through the planning, including the challenges of 2020. It was the little things on the day that really counted - like having a stash of bobby pins for the bridesmaid dresses that were ready for a wardrobe malfunction in the wind, dealing with baby tantrums, reassuring the bride that everything would be okay when we were running behind on time and, most important of all, teaching the bride how to walk her Dad down the aisle. Robyn is an amazing celebrant and we have already been recommending her to all our friends.
