Selecting Your Marriage Celebrant
For your special occasion is a very personal choice and one you should feel very comfortable with. You need to know, with confidence, that your marriage celebrant will understand and reflect what is in your heart so that they can provide a wedding ceremony which delivers the feelings and emotions you wish to portray.
Introducing Rita O'Reilly
To see if I am the right marriage celebrant for you and to help you with your choice, I think you should know a little more about me. Terry and I were married in 1981 when we were both 21 years of age. That was over 30 years ago and I couldn't imagine being with a more wonderful, loving and supportive man. Together we with have rasied two children who are now in their late 20's whom we are very proud of. We are also very proud grandparents to Georgia Grace who is an absolute blessing for our family. On our 14th wedding anniversary, back in 1995, we renewed our marriage vows and publically reafffirmed our commitment to each other. Our renewal of vows ceremony included our two young children and was witnessed by our closest friends and family at the Settler's Inn at Mulgoa in New South Wales. It was a wonderful ceremony and a beautiful day. It left us with many beautiful and lasting memories which we will treasure forever.
I believe there is nothing more important in life than the family unit and the bonds of love and loyalty that come from a committed relationship. I feel great joy in witnessing others embark on the same journey knowing the wonderful rewards that lie ahead of them. It is this joy that I wish to share with others that has led me to become a marriage celebrant. It would be an honour and a privilege to be a part of your celebration, be it a weddng or commitment ceremony, renewal of vows, naming ceremony or other special occassion.
I thoroughly enjoy working with my couples and love creating and conducting beautifully personalised ceremonies which may include your 'courtship story". Your wedding ceremony is beautifully printed and presented in a lovely album which holds your Marriage Certificate and, may be used as a guest book. This is a lovely keepsake especially after your family and friends have written their wishes for you on the guests' pages.
I look forward to hearing from you so together, we can take the next step towards your wedding day.
