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.

From our very first meeting with Rita and Terry we knew we had found the perfect celebrant to marry us.  We had never met them before and we ended up leaving their home 3 hours later!  Talking about our journey, love and life we felt at ease and more than happy with our choice in celebrant from the very beginning.

Rita and Terry are the most warm, loving and funniest couples we have had the pleasure in meeting. They were both there at our rehearsal to go over everything to be expected on the day, Rita really put my pre-wedding nerves at ease after the rehearsal (along with Terry and his jokes!). When the big day rolled in, it felt as though we were being married by a friend.

Our ceremony was truly AMAZING and we have the both of you to thank for this.  The way you included our lost loved ones into the ceremony was truly beautiful and everyone is still talking about how beautiful the entire day was from start to finish.  It was honestly the BEST day of our lives through all the hardship we have faced in the past, it was just an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day!  We could not even imagine having anyone else there to marry us.  Rita and Terry, we are truly grateful for your amazing efforts into helping mould our Wedding Day into the beautiful one that it was and we are so blessed to have gained two amazing new friends!  We will be recommending you guys for years to come!!

Much love always from Nick & Sherelle (Menangle House, 12/7/14)

We loved everything about our ceremony and the process leading up to it!  Rita and Terry helped make our wedding the most incredible day with a ceremony that was so thoughtfully written.  They took the time to really try and understand what marriage meant to us individually and as a couple and then transformed it into a story that captured exactly what we are about.  They were very professional and calm throughout the process and no request was too hard. We could not recommend them highly enough!
