"Need a wedding celebrant in
the middle of a pandemic?"

Rita O'Reilly was there for us!

We had it all planned, and then COVID hit and our plans went out the window. International and then interstate travel, closed. Reception venue, closed. But we still wanted to get married - that was important to us. And, in the end, we found all you really need is a celebrant (and two witnesses).


Rita was there for us. We arranged and planned it out over Skype, and without much of a rehearsal Rita was able to guide us through the ceremony without any hiccups. She was eloquent and moving, evoking joyful tears from our witnesses from the get go, and her excellent sound equipment (for the guests joining us via livestream) made it a very professional production. 


We cannot recommend Rita enough. We hope all your wedding turns out exactly as you plan, but if there are last minute changes (major or minor), you'll want Rita there to make it all OK.

Our first dance was such
a joyous moment.

Rita is by far the best celebrant to choose for your wedding day!  I first learnt of Rita at my brother's wedding and fell in love with her years ago! Years later I knew I couldn’t choose anyone else but Rita!

Rita made me and my husband feel comfortable and confident in the lead up to the wedding, her attention to detail and understanding of the whole marriage process is beyond incredible.

On the day Rita and Terry dropped by to visit me getting ready to see if I was doing okay which is such a nice touch that they don’t have to do but they do it anyways! The entire ceremony was perfect, everything I ever wanted, the love story was so accurate and my entire (145 guests) were engaged the entire time! Afterwards the entire guest list raves about how good Rita was and how fantastic the whole ceremony was!  Terry doesn’t go unnoticed, he (Rita’s husband & business partner) is the most wonderful addition to Rita, he ensures all guests are okay.  I have a heavily pregnant guest which he had seen, he then sourced a seat for her to sit at the ceremony so she would be okay!  Little things like this are such a beautiful touch on your wedding day!  Oh and you can forget his funky Hawaiian shirts that are sure to make sure you smile!

All in all, I cannot fault Rita!  She is professional, knowledgeable and a really down to earth person!  I cannot recommend her enough.

Rita... where to begin!!!??

When we met Rita there was an instant connection between us. It was like we had known her for years. We laughed, shared stories and finally sat and spoke about why we want to get married.

Rita is warm, loving, loyal and so generous.  Leading up to the wedding Rita was there for any guidance but also helped with a personal issue I had. She listened and gave her advice and spoke to me like a friend.

Yes she married us but Jeremy and I don’t just see her as the lady who married us, we see her as someone we will keep in our lives forever.

Rita you are such a beautiful lady and we are so happy you got to share in our beautiful day, meet our family and just be apart of our story.

Thank you so much. We are forever in your debt.

Much love,

Sarah and Jeremy. ❤️❤️❤️

Kirsten & Marie

I don’t think we can find the right words to say how much I loved Rita being our marriage celebrant!  It felt right at home being around her!

If you’re looking for someone who will make you feel comfortable, write an incredible wedding ceremony and just be the best person ever - look no further, Rita is the BEST!!

We would 100% recommend Rita to everyone, she did an amazing job making sure my groom is still there at the alter to marry me :).


Dave and I both agreed from the first time we met Rita, she had this very soothing beautiful voice which we could listen to all day.  Rita to us, was more than just a celebrant she was like an Aunty to us, she was very professional she provide clear step by step instructions from the first meeting to the final day - our wedding ceremony. She made the whole process run smoothly and also made sure there were a back up for her if she fell sick too (very well plan and considerate). We both did not stress at all as we knew everything was under control thanks to Rita, also made it easy as she knew all our wedding vendors too. She helped us with our vows and also wrote our beautiful love story. We totally wish her all the best and continue marry many more happy couples... Rita is an AWESOME celebrant!


Also thank you Terry (Rita's Hubby) you both together inspires us newly wed to love each and be merry like you both! Thank youuuuuu so much for everything...and for marrying Dave and I xxx

Where do we begin!  Thank you so much for going above and beyond for us on our special day.  You took care of all the little things and you were so much more than just a celebrant!

After spending only a little bit of time with you it felt like we had known you for years! It was really special to have someone marry us that felt like a close friend!  Both you and Terry were so incredibly friendly and professional and you ticked boxes that we didn’t knew existed as a celebrant!


Thanks so much :)

Rita went above and beyond to help my partner and myself create such a magical and romantic wedding ceremony.  From the total dedication she showed us with helping us tweak our ceremony with special readings to her amazingly brilliant smile as we said our vows on the day.   Having her there guiding us and welcoming our friends and family on the day was just a positive addition to our wedding.

Highly recommend her awesome personality and 'part of the family' feeling that comes with her services!

Divine Celebrancy was highly recommended to us from close friends that had their marriage officiated by Rita. From this conversation with our friends, we knew we’d be in safe hands.


Upon our first meeting with Rita, we had all of the questions that we never knew we had answered so clearly and concisely. Before we knew it, we had signed our Notice of Intent which was organised so promptly by Rita.  Over the months leading up to our wedding, Rita kept in contact with us, gathering more information about our relationship, our family and friends.

Most importantly Rita became acquainted with our love story which was compiled reflective of who were are and accurately derived from a short survey we completed as well as informally through our conversations.
The week before our wedding, we held our ceremony rehearsal with Rita. Every possibility was nutted out, discussed and practiced and we very quickly noticed Rita’s attention to detail, organisation with music, microphones and speakers and professionalism as she had all the finer details that I hadn’t even thought of down pat that made for our wedding to be personalised. My mum even mentioned during the rehearsal that Rita seemed part of the family with her warm and caring nature.


We experienced horrendous wind conditions on the day of our wedding and having the ceremony on a cliff side golf course wasn’t the most ideal location. However, after seeing how calm Rita was and her reassuring me that the ceremony will go off without a hitch, I was immediately put to ease doing everything she could to ease my nerves. True to her word, our ceremony was absolutely lovely and it was my favorite part of our wedding. Our guests were in awe of Rita’s beautiful words and delivery of our story and we’re so glad we have a keepsake of that too.

We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to marry us.  Thank you so much Rita for creating such a special moment for us.

Thank you so much to Rita and Terry for their amazing work to make our wedding day the most memorable and magical.   From the very first moment Tim and I met with Rita we knew instantly we were in good hands.  Rita's nurturing and calm nature brought so much comfort to Tim and I both leading up to and on our wedding day.

Rita and Terry were so helpful in their advice and support to Tim and I, making this the best day of our lives. We will be forever grateful for the passion and dedication you both demonstrated in ensuring our day was the best possible, making sure everything was perfect, right down to the most tiniest details.


We would definitely recommend Rita to anyone getting married and look forward to continuing a friendship with these two amazing people.

Rita (Divine Celebrancy) is professional, efficient, and approachable. But far more than that she is an amazing person, she genuinely cares and listens, she’s friendly and she feels like a part of the family - she’s gorgeous.  I couldn’t picture my big day without her, she was an integral part of the beginning of the rest of my life.


Everything she does is done so with the utmost care - from her frequent check-ins, right through to the big day and afterward.  I will never be able to thank her enough, but I hope and wish that she realizes that she is the most amazing celebrant, and I also hope that her next couples realize just how lucky they are (I know they will!).

My husband and I are so pleased we had Rita as our wedding celebrant.  She went above and beyond to make sure that our ceremony was everything that we wanted. Rita was so friendly and down to Earth that made creating our ceremony and including different cultural ceremonies so easy.  We wouldn't have chosen anyone else.


Thank you Rita for creating our amazing ceremony.

Bryant & Briar

Rita is an incredible celebrant and beautiful person.  She and her husband Terry are an absolute delight and being around them and their beautiful marriage is inspiration in itself!


Rita has absolutely found the perfect balance between professional and heartfelt presentation.  She will tell your love story captivatingly.  More than this, she will take care of you, cater for every part of the ceremony to your style and make you feel amazing on the big day.  I cannot recommend her enough ❤️


Thank you Rita and Terry for our amazing ceremony!

Alison & David

Gledswood Homestead & Winery, Catherine Field NSW

From the first minute we met Rita and Terry, David and I knew that we wanted her to be our celebrant and we never looked back.   Rita was professional, covered all bases and together with us created the most beautiful, heartfelt ceremony for our special day.   I still remember receiving our draft ceremony to review and being brought to tears because of how perfectly our ceremony reflected us and our family.


Six months later our guests are still commenting on how much they enjoyed our ceremony and in particular they have mentioned the warmth and love Rita generated that made them feel a part of our ceremony Thank you so much for everything!!

Erin & Michael

Milton Park Estate, Bowral NSW

Rita and Terry were an absolute pleasure to deal with.  From the start we were made to feel welcome and there was plenty of laughter and no questions was too small.  We chose to write our vows and Rita was on hand every step of the way as a great sounding board and to help us if we got stuck.


Being apart of the Armed service family it was important to incorporate the traditional welcome and acknowledgement to those who have served and are currently serving in our armed services into our ceremony. Rita had never come across this type of welcome before in the ceremonies she had officiated and not only did she take it in her stride, it was flawless.  Both Michael and my heartfelt thank you go to Her for accommodating what was important to us in the ceremony.


The last thing you want to be concerned with is lodging your intent to marry forms, thankfully this was taken care of for us and the depth of knowledge in explaining the forms to us and what everything meant was astounding. All in all we could and would not have wanted anyone else to officiate our wedding ceremony.

Thank you Rita

Centennial Parklands, Sydney NSW

Having been witness to many weddings, we can honestly say that Divine Celebrancy truly sets themselves apart in the level of care, love and support for couples getting married.   We knew we had found our celebrant after witnessing first-hand how Rita delicately and gracefully handled a sudden rain shower mid-ceremony at wedding for one of our friends.

In the lead up to our own special day, Rita made every effort to alleviate any concerns we had and walked us through every possible scenario. This allowed us to approach our day feeling untroubled and supported; knowing that our day was in the hands of someone who truly had our interests at heart. This peace of mind allowed us to focus all our attention on enjoying every moment of the experience, which Rita supported with such love and genuine care.


Looking back on the events of our special day, we cannot imagine having anyone other than Rita as our celebrant.  For any couple wanting to get married, we can attest to fact that getting a good celebrant is just as important as choosing those on your bridal party. We are so glad we chose Rita O'Reilly for our special day.

Alix & Richard

John & Sarah

John and I would love to thank you for making our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect for us.   Despite the wind, you made what could have been a shambles, into a very memorable, heart-felt celebration.

Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and it definitely took the stress away.  I'm sure our candle celebration will go down in history for its hilarity, but you did amazingly to get us through it.  So thank you for everything!  We could not recommend you highly enough.

I’d like to thank both Rita, and her husband Terry for providing such an exceptional service on mine and Nathan’s Wedding day.  From our very first meeting, through to our Special day, Rita was in constant contact and made the planning so smooth and simple.  It’s obvious that Rita lives her passion, because she takes so much care in even the smallest of details, and will often go above and beyond to ensure you feel that everything is in safe hands.

Rita and Terry are such a lovely couple, and work so wonderfully as a team. Nathan and I couldn’t make time for a rehearsal at our Ceremony location before the day, so at our final meeting with Rita, we ran through the Ceremony in her Office, and Terry even stood in for my Dad and walked me down the ‘aisle’. I could not recommend Divine Celebrancy more, they are such a beautiful couple and we couldn’t thank them any more for making our day one we will never forget.

If you would like a Celebrant that marry you off as if you’re a family member, you cannot miss out on Rita and Terry.


My words cannot do justice for the amazing talents, care and love they put into our special day. Their work focus on you and your happiness alone, as if money is just some by product.


Rita is also the founder of “Celebrant Connect Australia” that you can find a network of multiple Celebrants with different locations/styles that you find apt. The website include an emergency plan for weddings in case your main celebrant cannot show up, another trusted partner can still proceed with the ceremony (who thought of that hey?)

Bonus point: Terry passes on a few tricks on “Amazing and loving husband 101”

Thank you Ni & Jack

Lexi & Neil

Belgenny Farm, Camden

Neil and I had the most pleasant and stress free experience with you as our celebrant and Terry as your ever faithful side kick.  From our first meeting you made us feel some and comfortable.


Our wedding rehearsal was fun and easy, and our ceremony was seamless. In the lead up to the ceremony, if anyone had questions I would say "don't stress, Rita will tell you what to do" and I just knew you'd have it all under control. I have had first hand experience of this before, of course, as you had married my sister and brother in law two years previous.


Thank you once again for being our family celebrant, I can't recommend you highly enough!

Chapel Hill Retreat, Berambing

We met Rita at an open day and instantly knew we had to have her for our wedding. We had met a few celebrants before but after speaking with Rita and her husband Terry for just 5 minutes we knew they were different and would add the right touch to our wedding.

Rita spent a lot of time going over all the fine details, ensuring we were happy with everything. We decided to have her add a love story to our ceremony and she was very obliging when we said we wanted to keep it short and simple. She got told our story perfectly and we loved all her special touches. As a bonus Terry was there to help with all the equipment and music, and having him there, knowing we wouldn't have to worry about anything was amazing. We really feel like we were married by family!

We could go on and on about Rita but words cannot describe the warmth and love she brought to our wedding day.  Liz & Jason xox

Daniel & Amy

Rita and Terry were recommended to us by a very trusting source and they weren't wrong!  From the moment we were welcomed into their home and offered a delicious coffee Daniel and I felt totally at ease.  Rita was very clear and concise regarding all the formalities and necessary components, but also showed great compassion and understanding when it came to getting the words of our ceremony absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for two more lovely people to be apart of our special moment.

Thank you Rita and Terry, we can't thank you enough, we are so privileged to have met such lovely people. Amy & Daniel x

Centennial Vineyards, Bowal NSW

My husband and I used the services of Rita O'Reilly from Divine Celebrancy when we were married on 27 January 2017 at Centennial Vineyards, Bowral.  We couldn't have been happier with the service we received from Rita.   Shea made herself available at a time and day that suited us for our pre-wedding meetings which were very informative about the whole process.  We had a pre-wedding rehearsal at the Divine Celebrancy office which made us feel more comfortable about our upcoming wedding.

On the day of our wedding, Rita rang me to see how I was going and to let me know that the guests had been moved into a more shady spot.  Rita was checking if that was okay with me, which of course it was.  The ceremony was beautiful.  The readings that we chose from Divine Celebrancy were great.  I had many guests tell how beautiful the ceremony was and a guest remarked how professional and warm the celebrant was. We had no hiccups, everything went to plan.  Our wedding day was amazing!


Alana & Peter

Clint & Joanna

Well, I don't know where to begin. From day one Rita was organised and professional! As you can see by all the other reviews, Rita, and her husband Terry, go above and beyond. I have no hesitation in recommending Rita to anyone.


If you are looking through celebrants to choose for your big day, you cannot go wrong with Rita!

Tig & Nicole

Lakeside Golf Club, Camden NSW

I cannot highly recommend Rita enough. If you’re looking for a Celebrant, there is only one person to go to Rita O'Reilly from Divine Celebrancy. Rita is caring, understanding and worked step by step with us, changing things last minute to make our day perfect, which it was, perfect!

Rita and Terry are an incredible team, from the moment we met Rita we knew we wanted her to marry us. She is so kind, friendly and really listened to us when we spoke about what we wanted for our wedding.  Rita took the time to get to know us both and treated as both as friends rather than just another client.  On the lead up to the wedding, she made everything so easy by being so organized and tuned in to what needed to be done.


On our wedding day Rita and Terry went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony was perfect as it was raining on the day.  They were prepared with extra speakers on the day to ensure all our guests could hear the ceremony taking place.  We would definitely recommend Rita and Terry to everyone we know, not only do they provide a 5 star service, they are the kindest people you will met. Thank you Rita and Terry for making our wedding extra special!

Jonathan & Zoe

Elouera Surf Club, Cronulla NSW

My husband and I could not have asked for a better celebrant. The day went as planned and we really appreciated Rita's help and feedback leading up to the event as well. She helped make our day very special and one we will never forget!

John & Melissa

Ottimo House, Denham Court NSW

We too met Rita at one of the Wedding expos and immediately knew that we wanted to work with her. Right from the start, Rita exceeded our expectations and accommodated every little detail and request to make our day all it could be. After our first meeting, we knew that we had made the right choice.  She took the time to go through every step of the marriage process with us and offered us advice when needed.  Both her and Terry’s efforts left us knowing that our wedding ceremony was one of a kind and very personalised to us.


Our love story was perfect and reflected our journey right from when we met until our wedding day very concisely. It was wonderful to have that extra special touch to share with our families and friends and Rita and Terry made that possible. We would definitely recommend Divine Celebrancy if you want a friendly, warm-hearted and down to earth celebrant.

Bendooley Estate, Berrima

Rhyse and I would just like to take this time to say a massive thank you to you!  Everything was truly amazing and so perfectly smooth right from the beginning and all the way up until the 'big day', we just cannot thank you enough. Thank you for making our day one of a kind and all about us and for being patient with us when we were taking so long to get back to you about everything.  Also the little rehearsal beforehand was so much fun and I think I got all my tears out of the way then, ha ha.

We loved meeting your amazing husband and it is so nice to see someone whom is marrying you so in love after such a long time, it makes it that little bit even more special. And thank you to you both for the set up on the day and having amazing sound and everyone only had good things to say.  So thank you very much once again.

We have already done so and will continue to highly recommend you to everyone :)

Our love story was absolutely beautiful and we will cherish this forever.


Thank you again for your services you truly are a passionate celebrant who we will recommend to our family and friends, we wish you all the best.

Christian & Aiko

Rita has been amazing from the very start of our wedding journey.  She was professional and very funny at the same time.  Our first meeting was only booked for an hour but it took at least 3 hours because she was not just a wedding celebrant who wanted to make business, she was like a counselor and a mother explaining the whole process thoroughly.


From the rehearsals to the wedding day, she has always exceeded our expectations. She made us feel very comfortable which made our wedding ceremony so much fun and stress free.  A shout out to her husband Terry for organising and playing our wedding music using their own equipment which I think was a very good bonus!

Josh & Courtney

Growwild, Alpine NSW

Over 12 months ago Courtney and I searched upon Google and met the beautiful Rita O'Reilly.  She gracefully guided Courtney and I on our incredible journey of happiness and love which lead to us stand hand in hand under our arbor, listening to Rita read our life story in front of friends and family at Growwild.
When I was nervous I would call you and just hearing your calm voice reassured me that I was in safe hands. We cannot thank you enough Rita, I am still on a high from this unforgettable day and its thanks to you.  Like I said to you when I called you hours from the ceremony "you are a Angel" and to Terry O'Reilly, you are a absolute legend and I thank you for the help and confidence you gave not only myself but my groomsmen and now Mrs Taylor.  I'll never forget the kind hearted, loving and down to earth celebrant and her funny, quick witted and spunky husband.  Plus thank you Terry for telling myself and the groomsmen to get into the huddle to bring some humour and laughter to the ceremony.
As Courtney and I drove home we both agreed that we are genuinely going to miss you both.
From the bottom of our hearts thank you Rita and Terry O'Reilly.

Daniel & Amanda

Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney NSW

To Dear Rita and Terry,

Thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. Words cannot express how lucky we feel to have found you to marry us. Not only did you help create a wedding ceremony that reflected who we were, you also provided a warm, friendly and safe environment for us to meet and go through the details.

There is no doubt in our minds that you love what you do and this was evident in all that you did. From the handling of all the paperwork, providing beautiful cards for our vows, helping us to write, create and edit the details of our ceremony and everything else in between.

You made the whole day run smoothly by ensuring you had all the relevant contact details of our bridal party, everyone knew where to walk, who to greet and when. You truly have every detail covered. I can honestly say that you made me feel so comfortable and helped to ease the nerves because of how prepared, professional and genuinely passionate you are about doing what you do. 

Thank you again and we wish you, Terry and your family all the best. 


Lots of love,

Amanda and Daniel

The BEST Ever!!  From day one we felt so at ease and comfortable, we knew we were in very safe and capable hands.  Every little detail was handled so professionally and with such exceptional warmth.


At rehearsals - organizing everyone (including 6 of our children, their partners and 9 grandchildren) so we were all involved and knew exactly what to do, yet at the same time calming nerves and giving reassurance. 

It was very evident that both Rita and Terry were genuinely passionate about making our day a beautiful and intimate experience for us, yet relaxed and enjoyable for all.  In fact many of our guests commented on what a wonderful and unique experience our ceremony was for them as well.  The legal side was taken care of very professionally, Rita goes above and beyond what is necessary, even giving me assistance via a gift card to help streamline my change of name process!

From start to finish their support was never ending ….  so relaxed and friendly.  Everything felt easy and effortless because we knew at every stage it was under control thanks to Rita and Terry.  We have nothing but praise for them both. We have and will continue to 100% highly recommend Rita at Divine Celebrancy  to everyone that ever needs a celebrant.


It runs in the family !! - Sarah  (Sarah Jay & Co)   did an absolutely awesome job styling our venue …. flowers were so AMAZING!  Check her out, you won’t be sorry.   


From the bottom of our hearts, again, thank you all so much for such a memorable day.

Growwild, Alpine NSW

Rita and Terry O'Reilly are a beautiful couple. From the moment we met them, we knew that we weren't going to have a transactional experience. Both Rita and Terry are exceptionally warm individuals and genuinely committed to a couples' unique story. We truly felt as though they saw being part of our special day as a privilege.  Rita's calm demeanor and highly organised nature meant that we had a clear check list and outline of what we needed to do in the lead up to our ceremony. This was thoughtfully  drip fed across the months so we didn't feel overwhelmed. We were also given an abundance of examples when it came to vows and readings to guide us along the way. Yes, there are legal requirements but this was always kept in the background. Our relationship and our preferences always took centre stage. We were particularly grateful for Rita's openness to let us acknowledge country and express our desire for marriage equality. 
Terry,  the wordsmith,  did a fantastic job of weaving our questionnaire responses  (part of the process)  into a beautiful story about our relationship. We understand this is not an easy task and takes a lot of time to put together. Terry did this wonderfully and created a story we can fondly look back upon for years to come.
We also benefited from a rehearsal of the ceremony at the venue. Rita and Terry were calming influences and offered well considered and effective advice which was personalised to what they thought would best represent us as a couple. We felt well prepared for the day ahead and comfortable that all contingencies were prepared for. Rita and Terry's feedback on our vows was particularly touching and built our confidence in the lead up.  
The ceremony itself was perfect. Many of our guests commented on how wonderfully Rita guided all of us through the ceremony and how she spoke with such effortless warmth and sincerity. Her poise and heartfelt reactions to our declarations of love were felt by all and helped forge the authentic experience we had hoped for from the get go. Terry needs a special mention here,  he handled all the sound. The mics were well set up,  the music played on cue  and the sound was crisp. We always felt as though we were in capable hands. 
There's undoubtedly a special bond that was formed between us over the course of these months. We are so grateful to have come across a Celebrant that is so authentically committed to forging a connection with the couples she joins in marriage. We wholeheartedly recommend Rita (and Terry) as a Celebrant to any couple that is seeking to have a professional yet intimate celebration of their love.

Dear Rita & Terry,

We would like to thank you both for everything that you've done for us.  You two went above and beyond to not only make our day special, but also providing us with the support and assurance we needed throughout the planning process (especially on those days when we were stressed).

You are one in a million!  You are passionate, supportive and professional and your kind , caring and loving nature always made us feel welcome and very much at ease.  We appreciate everything that you both have done for us and we cannot thank you enough for it.

Having Terry and Rita working with us, made the planning of wedding process so much easier.  They made us feel comfortable and at ease with their support during those stressful times.  100% would recommend them.

Thank you Rita and Terry!

Kane & Tenille

We were lucky enough to have been recommended Rita as our Marriage Celebrant.  Rita is a pleasure to deal with, she is extremely organised, friendly and caring.  Rita delivered a beautiful ceremony, making us feel comfortable and relaxed, allowing us to take in the special moment.  Rita also takes care of all the paperwork before and after the wedding which is one less thing you need to do.


We highly recommend Rita to anyone looking for a relaxed, friendly, professional celebrant.
