"The reason we first chose Rita Bates for our celebrant was that she doesn't book any other weddings on the same day, so she was exclusively ours for the day! Rita always was accessible and she was happy to answer any of our questions. She listened to what we wanted and then tailored our ceremony to suit our needs. We are so happy with Rita & we would certainly recommend her to others."
Brett & Anna

“Rita was the ultimate professional in her planning, and gave us lots of information in regards to the ceremony. She always replied to our emails and provided us with valuable feedback. Rita did a fantastic job with our wedding ceremony.
She was flexible on the day, when we had to move the ceremony from 3pm to 5pm and to a different venue because of the weather. She was warm in her nature and made our ceremony one we will never forget! Thanks.”
​Ivan & Sarah

“Charin & I found you to be very thorough and professional from our first initial phone call. We really appreciated your warm & friendly approach and patience. Your presentation on the day was lovely and we would highly recommend you to anyone.”
