Well, hello there

We've all been to those weddings. You know - the ones that drag along, have nothing to do with the couple, and leave you desperate for the party to actually start. 

Far from being the uptight and stodgy part of the day preceding the drinks and dancing, I think the ceremony should be the very pinnacle, the bees knees, of the event, setting the tone for all the fun times to come.

Let's change the way ceremonies are done and start having fun again. Together, we'll tell your story, laugh, cry, reminisce and laugh again!

Casual and relaxed, or packed to the brim with awesome. Simple and sweet, or kooky and fun. Just the two of you, or with your whole tribe. Whatever the occasion, I'm in.

A Little About Me

Hey there! I'm a marriage celebrant, a lover of telling tales and getting to know new people. People describe me as down to earth, an instant mate, easy going, and enthusiastic.

Often seen with a maniacal toothy grin.

My dog thinks I'm cool.

Splitting my time between Hobart and the West Coast of Tassie, where I live, I like to spend my downtime with my lovely and super-nerdy husband Tom, playing board games or binging on Netflix, with our ridiculously adorable dog, Manny, snuggled on our collective laps.

I have lately been tricked into a love of kayaking and bushwalking, but I'm ok with it.

Marriage Equality

Yay! Finally, the day is here. The wait has been long, but Marriage Equality has made it's way to Australia!

From January 9th 2018, the outdated laws were thrown out, and loving couples in the LGBQTI+ community were able to marry.

Heck yes. 

Get in touch to collaborate on your wedding day, and together we will make it a day to remember. If you want a simple registry style ceremony, we can do that. If you want to celebrate this momentous occasion with piles of confetti and fun, count me in.

Some Nice Words...

We want to say thank you so much for such an amazing ceremony! We had several people comment what a great ceremony it was and our boss thought that the ring warming was such a special touch (Our parents did too, once we explained to them afterwards what was going on haha!!) 

Sandra & Esteban

I am so pleased that I found Kathleen! She made the whole process of paperwork, planning and preparing for the wedding easy and enjoyable!

We knew when we were planning our wedding that we didn’t want a celebrant who was super traditional, we wanted someone who was fun, down to earth and accepted all kinds of love. Kathleen was the perfect fit! I honestly don’t think our day would have been as magical as it was if it wasn’t for her involvement. I am terrified of public speaking and was so nervous about saying my vows in front of everyone, but because of the way Kathleen had prepared the ceremony, it made it so easy.

Thank you, Kathleen. You helped make our dream wedding come true. We will forever be grateful.

Absolutely fantastic! Kathleen listened to everything that we wanted our ceremony to be like and took the time in creating exactly that. Was open to ANY ideas that we had. Was friendly, fun and very easy to talk to. Presentation was brilliant and we could not be happier with the whole experience. Cannot recommend her enough.

Jess & Tam

Kathleen is amazing!! She made everything super easy and gave us lots of great ideas for our ceremony. The ceremony was really relaxed and fun - just what we wanted. Thanks so much for helping our day to feel like us. We had the best time!

Our celebrant, Kathleen Ryan, was AMAZING! We were mind blown at how personal our ceremony was, it was as if she'd known us forever. I was extra grateful at how she guided us through the proceedings, Ben and I became incapable bumbling fools just before the wedding, but she carried us with grace and poise. You truly have found your calling Kathleen Ryan. I wish we could be married by you more often.

Nikki & Ben

Kathleen was the most wonderful celebrant for our wedding. We had so many comments that it was one of the nicest ceremonies our friends and family had been to.

She was bubbly, enthusiastic, incredibly helpful and put together such a personal and heartfelt ceremony for us. A breath of fresh air really! Would highly recommend her!!
