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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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.

Robyn did an amazing job as our celebrant and MC for our wedding. She was responsive, helpful, organised, and really made the wedding so much more fun. She also made the wedding feel stress-free and adapted quickly to all situations, even with all the Covid restrictions. We highly recommend her!

Robyn is the bomb! She is warm, genuine, funny, skilled, organised, authentic and with you every step of the way. We feel honoured she was our celebrant and are so very grateful for all that she did, including taking the time to help our little one feel included and special. Robyn is a wonderful celebrant and human. Thank you Robyn, you went above and beyond and helped make our day magical ❤️ Laura & Andrea

Robyn made our day extra special with a ceremony that shared our special moments as a couple with our guests. She was well organised and gave a beautiful little keep sake folder to remember our beautiful day. Couldn’t have ask for anyone better. Thank you Robyn x

Our special day could not have been any more perfect, and we are so very grateful to have had Robyn do this very important role for us. Robyn is not only a professional and experienced celebrant, she is also someone with a very kind heart and beautiful soul. She is extremely thoughtful and we truly felt touched by the very personal and emotional ceremony she wrote for us. We cannot recommend her highly enough!! Thank you for helping us make our special day the most memorable day for life.

I have always known that Robyn was amazing, but having Robyn be our celebrant for our little wedding during COVID-19 was beyond amazing. I have always seen Robyn at my friends weddings, and she was always full of energy, love, humour and joy. From that moment, I have always wanted Robyn to be our celebrant on our wedding day. As soon as we started planning for the wedding, Robyn was the first person I contacted without hesitation. Not only Robyn is fantastic at what she do, Robyn is professional, and genuinely caring. It’s the little details and personal touches that made a big difference. Robyn has shaped our special moments into a story that is so personal and special that we will remember for the rest of our lives. It brought laughter and happy tears to everyone at our ceremony. Thank you Robyn. With gratitude, Amy & Jeremy xo

I found Robyn through Google and immediately loved her website - her personality shone through in every page. I had no hesitation in booking her for our big day and it was the best decision I made. Robyn is full of love, energy, humour and joy. She was professional, organised and calm and immediately put me at ease. No question was too silly or complex and she was fantastic at helping me navigate the complexities of re-organising our wedding due to COVID-19. Most importantly, our ceremony was so personable, special, warm and loving, injected with our story and perfectly written. We laughed and we cried together and it was the most special moment of both our lives thanks to Robyn. She is kind, witty, sweet and the best celebrant we could have asked for. Look no further than Robyn Pattison!

Robyn was truly the wedding pixie. She was professional, thoughtful, gentle and knowledgeable at every step. We had the pleasure of being officiated by Robyn during Covid-19. She was adaptable to every change that came through, used her experience and wisdom to advise us on what worked best throughout the process. On the day she was early, came with a mobile clipboard in hand, looking extremely elegant but arming us all with last-minute tips and even assisting with the button-holes. The ceremony itself, she adapted to our own unique stories. Both before and after she armed us with all relevant information required by law, but also custom resources to ensure we have a happy life together. We couldn't have asked for a more professional, organised and loving celebrant to officiate our marriage.

From the moment we got in contact with Robyn, we knew that this was going to be the best decision we would make in relation to picking the perfect celebrant for us. And boy.. were we right, in fact! Robyn exceeded our expectations beyond comprehension! Meeting and working with Robyn was definitely our favourite part of the whole wedding planning process. Robyn is authentic, reassuring, fun and very professional. Most of the compliments and requests we received during and after our wedding day was “WOW guys! What are your celebrants details?”, “How does your celebrant know you guys so well.. I was blown away by your ceremony..” and “Not only was your ceremony and wedding heartfelt, it was original and so you!!”. Robyn has a gift in being able to bring your personal vision into a reality and make your ceremony what you want it, knows her stuff and makes wonderful suggestions to make it even BETTER!! If you are a couple (from all walks of life) and looking to book a Celebrant OR Wedding MC, Robyn Pattison is your lady! Look no further and go for GOLD. BEST DECISION EVER!! Robyn Pattison, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so enchanting, fun, smooth and special. We are so grateful to have had you as our celebrant and Wedding MC. You really have a special gift. With gratitude, Nancy & Gonzalo xo

Robyn was the perfect celebrant, she not only organised all the legal and admin stuff, but helped cover all angles of the ceremony. To summarize her in a few words..always super radiant, sunny and bubbly, ever positive, collaborative, personalised, super knowledgeable and experienced. When you have your first meeting with her you quickly realize you have found a gem and are in good hands. Robyn helped ensure the ceremony logistics issues were covered, provided in depth knowledge of the venue , was knowledgeable on the Asian traditions, helped polish the run sheet, helped with our plan B wet weather option which we had to activate! In a way, she does quite a bit of the wedding planning. Her ability to craft our love story at the ceremony was perfectly sweet, hilarious for everyone and endearing. Without Robyn, we would not have had the stress-free seamless perfect

Robyn was such a fabulous celebrant and MC. She guided us completely through the process which was so helpful. She was always a positive and clear presence and really allowed us to not stress and enjoy the wedding! She was great at hyping up the crowd and even indulged us in our odd ceremony requests. We would happily recommend her to anyone getting married, and have done so already!

15 Jan 2020

We cannot thank Robyn enough for the amazing day she provided to our little family! Robyn went above and beyond anything we ever could have imagined. From all the hard work she put in behind the scenes, phenomenal suggestions we would never have though of and her straight to the point tips and tricks to ensure a smooth ceremony and even more wonderful photographs (no double chins or holding flowers too high here!) She had everything covered! Our intimate ceremony with our nearest and dearest was perfection, and it all started with Robyn! Words cannot do her justice. Thank you a million times over again!

Incredibly experienced, sooo entertaining and very helpful. Im so glad I was able to use Robyn as our Celebrant and MC for the night. Everything ran so smoothly and she did an amazing job to ensure everyone was comfortable prepared and clear with their roles prior the ceremony and during reception speeches, first dance etc. All of our guests commented on how incredible she was!!! Best part is that Robyn is like a best friend on the day. She is genuinely there to help relax you and your bridal party. As a celebrant she is outstanding!!! Everything she says is well researched and she is incredibly engaging. We left the wedding with a script of our ceremony in the most gorgeous book that is now a memory for life- so thoughtful!!! Best decision we made for the wedding was choosing her for our day!
