OVERVIEW

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.

Hello!

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

FAQ

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.

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! 

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 ...as 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. 

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). 

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

Please try to keep to the agreed time for the ceremony commencement. Your guests will appreciate it if you are on time. 

It’s ok, I am always here to help. Talk to me. I’d like you to get what you want. I’m really nice and I can help. 

If I am very, very sick, and really serious, I will get you someone else. No worries, great networks mean I have a few celebrants back me ups. For anything else, I will be there for you. I have NEVER double-booked, got too sick to show up or let anyone down. NEVER, and I promise you won’t be my first. 

If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, you will need to have alternative arrangements or adequate shelter – in case of rain. The weather is the one thing about your big day that you can’t control – but you can manage it. Think about shade, shelter and if necessary, an alternative venue. Talk to me if you need advice. 

This is your marriage ceremony and all about the two of you. It will be a personal expression of your love, and personalities. You can play music before and after the ceremony.

However, it is better not to play background music while we are speaking – it makes it much more difficult to hear and can be distracting for your guests.

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.

Patricia is a very experienced celebrant who makes our registration process really smooth. In addition, Patricia also capable in holding Chinese Tea Ceremony for us, that our family members are really happy with. She's also our wedding MC , who is familiar and coordinate with all the vendors and makes our reception more memorable. Highly recommend!

Patricia was both our Marriage Celebrant for the Wedding Ceremony, as well as the Masters of Ceremonies for our reception. She is capable of speaking both Cantonese and English fluently, so if you're in the market for a Marriage Celebrant and a Masters of Ceremonies for the Cantonese side of your family, then she is a good choice. She performed her job excellently, as well as professionally. She explained the process for being registered for marriage well, and tried to keep everything simple for us. On the big day, she adjusted the script for the ceremony according to how simple or extensive we wanted it to be. And for the reception, she performed her job well, catering for both the english speakers, as well as the cantonese side.
