Rita Cohann is REMARKABLE. I was recommended to her and instantly knew from the first email that I found the woman to marry my (now) wife and I! She’s simply magnificent. The way she translated our love story was so beautiful. Our family and friends saw our journey in a new way! She really GOT us. Rita was so organised, kept us on track with what we needed to do, and even her handwriting on our Marriage Certificate was exquisite. Being in the wedding industry myself, (Hair & Makeup), I see a LOT of celebrants. I can say with all certainty that she is THE BEST Celebrant I have ever seen. I’m so excited to have had this amazing woman as my own Celebrant at my wedding. She truly made it sooooo incredibly special! I’ll be using Rita for every event in my life going forward and I recommend her without hesitation. Thank you, Rita, you are wonderful! xoxox

We had Rita as our Marriage celebrant in October, and couldn't have been happier with her. From the first moment we met her, we loved how warm and friendly she was. She has the art of capturing people attention without even trying. Every time we met with her, she treated us like long long friends and was genuinely interested in who we were and what brought us together. We loved her on our wedding day. She told our story beautifully with a few laughs thrown in. All our guests were raving about her afterwards and how she made the ceremony personal, but fun and got everyone feeling like they were involved. Rita is such a warm, welcoming person and an incredible celebrant. We definitely recommend Rita to everyone looking for a celebrant. Rita makes the ceremony about you and your story, in such a fun, classy way!

Rita is such a wonderful and lovely person to be around. She has married many couples, and when it comes down to a very important occasion, the experience really does counts! For us as a couple, we wanted someone who got us and knew what she was doing. Rita ticked all the boxes and more. Rita guided us through the process, and had an eye for detail. She delivered a civil ceremony that reflected us as a couple. We wanted a loving memorable ceremony that was also straight to the point with little fluff. Rita delivered a great ceremony, highlighted the most important parts and did such a great job with bringing it all together. Would highly recommend Rita. She handles everything, is very professional and organised, and kept us both relaxed on the day.

Rita was an absolute treat to work with. She helped mentor my wife and I through the marriage process from start to finish. Our experience with Rita was comforting, reliable and genuinely enjoyable. Her attention to detail is impeccable, as she took the time to learn about both of us and our story. We could not be happier with Rita's service and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that perfect celebrant.

Rita was absolutely amazing! We spoke to several different celebrants but with Rita we immediately felt at ease! Every part of our ceremony was perfect and we had so many compliments on how well she conducted the day! Thanks so so much Rita! It would not have been possible without you! xxx

I would just like to thank Rita so so much for being a part of our wedding on Sunday! She was absolutely amazing and made my husband and I feel at ease even standing up in front of everyone! Rita helped us so much with our vows and we are over the moon with how our wedding turned out. We couldn't have rated her high enough on the ABIA website. All our friends and family were raving about just how wonderful she was! We were so lucky to have such a caring celebrant for our wedding,

Dear Rita, Thank you for making our day special. Your professionalism and passion for what you do, made our ceremony run smoothly. You are genuinely caring towards your couples and their families. Thank you for marrying us, we highly recommended you.

Rita was absolutely amazing since the day we met her. She genuinely cared to know our story and narrated it beautifully at our wedding. She guided us with our vows and the entire ceremony. I had two dads and children walking down the aisle and somehow she made it all work :) She even did part of our ceremony in French because of the french side of our family. Nothing was too much. She offered advice which was above and beyond her celebrant duties just so our day would go smoothly. She was very entertaining throughout the ceremony. Turned every little hiccup into an amusement. All our guests loved her and commended her work. Rita lives and breathes weddings, she made our day truely special and memorable :)

Rita was perfect! She invited us to her place and gave us so much advice about different things we could do for our wedding which was amazing because we didn't really know what to do. She helped me correct my grammar for my evening speech and write the perfect vows for my partner. The rehearsal was so great because she just knew exactly what we needed to do.

Rita was absolutely amazing for our special day. Throughout everything leading up she was incredibly supportive, prompt and wonderfully professional. She made the big day 100% personalised for my newly wedded wife and I and the way she handled everything, from our story to the signing of our marriage certificate was absolutely perfect. Hire Rita Cohann as your celebrant. There is no better person for the task.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to Rita for everything she did for our wedding. We had the most wonderful day and really appreciated Rita's support and professionalism on the day and in the lead up to the wedding. Rita is a wonderful celebrant - she helped us to relax when we were nervous and she guided us through the ceremony with ease. We could not have asked for a better celebrant. Thank you!
