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

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.

Robyn went above and beyond what I could have ever asked for in regards to performing our ceremony. She was thorough, supportive, and gave us the ceremony of our dreams.

Dean and I got married when COVID was starting to affect Sydney again. We had been engaged for about 3 years and was so ready to be married. We were worried our wedding wouldn’t happen. Three days before our wedding, restrictions were placed and we had to change things in our original plan. From the beginning, Robyn remained calm and in control through all these changes. Her experience in the wedding industry REALLY shows in the way she navigates and adapts to changes out of our control. Together, with Robyn, we were able to pull off an AMAZING wedding that was beyond what we expected. It was perfect, full of emotion and love, and plenty of laughs! We honestly feel so much gratitude and love for Robyn. Even though she was working at our wedding, we love her so much she felt like apart of our family already. Thank you!

Robyn, where do I even start! I'm already tearing up just thinking about how special she made my partner and my day! We personally chose to elope, and even though we had no family and friends with us, Robyn filled the air with such positivity and delight that we barely noticed it was just her, us and the two photographers. I highly recommend Robyn! Thank you Robyn, so much love from Taylor and I xx

Honestly without Robyn the wedding wouldn’t have turned out how it’s meant to be, she’s the greatest human being. Our personal fairy gold mother. Elvis

Robyn is the BEST at what she does! We couldn't have done it without her and we're so so glad to have her as our celebrant and MC on our day. She is highly professional, energetic, great listener, hilarious and very well-organised. We love her to bits and there is no hesitation in recommending her service to anyone! SHE IS BEYOND AMAZING!

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.

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

I cannot imagine getting married without Robyn. She has so much experience, knowledge and energy so you know you are in capable hands. From the moment we met in her office- to the minute I walked down the aisle... she had all bases covered. This is what you need when the nerves start to hit... Robyn’s voice of reassurance to really help you get down the aisle. She tells a story which is exactly what I wanted. It made my guests feel a connection and created an everlasting impression. Civil ceremonies will come and go in a flash- but guests will always remember how they felt long after your wedding . It was an unforgettable experience & we cannot thank Robyn enough. Thank you endlessly - Jess & Marty

Robyn! OMG! If you want to find someone who cares, who is excited, far more organised - look no further ahead. Meeting Robyn was exciting, Chatting to Robyn was fun, and OMG, these small details and all her energy she puts in for each and every couple, AMAZING. She customised and made us a unique story for the ceremony (we had a very normal, kinda boring love story - but she made it humorous, fun and unique) SHE MADE THOSE ASIAN ELDERS DANCE!!! We knew our parent's guest were just coming to our reception, eat, and leave. But she got some doing some very interesting moves! I was definitely NOT organised, but Robyn knew exactly everything I needed to do, checked in with me, created a run sheet SUPER QUICK and shared it to all participating vendors! She got it all done a week before my wedding!!

Robyn was/is amazing. Guiding us through planning our wedding in 2020 and then rescheduling our wedding to this year. Even with all the emails and phone calls we exchanged she was very supportive and was definitely the calming and reassuring voice you need in a celebrant/MC for your wedding. All of our guests were at ease with her and could not sing her enough praise through the whole night. You'd be making a great decision having Robyn be a part of your day.

What can I say about Robyn? In a word, she was simply AMAZING! We couldn't have been happier with our celebrant! She also was our MC for our reception and it was so fantastic to see her be so attentive, responsive and also getting all the guests involved so that they feel like they're not just there to sit and eat food whilst looking at the newlyweds! She certainly brings the hype, fun and warmth throughout the entire day/night! A true professional, extremely organised, and just a wonderful, wonderful human, we feel as though we've made a friend for life. Robyn, thank you so much for being a part of our special day. It wouldn't have been the same without you!

Robyn is the best. Not one of the best, but the absolute best. She is so helpful, creative, caring and amazing at what she does. She made our wedding day amazing. We cannot recommend her enough. The stories she creates are fabulous, and there was not a dry eye at the ceremony.

24 Apr 2021

Robyn was simply amazing! From our first meeting we just knew she was the right fit for us. She is a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of weddings and is always happy to offer to help. She made us feel at ease and guided us through the whole process. No question or request was too much trouble. Our ceremony was fun and lighthearted while also being filled with love. Thank you Robyn for making our day perfect!
