Meet Kathleen Ryan Wedding Celebrant

Hey there! I’m a marriage celebrant working across the whole of little ol’ Tassie (and outside of it!) all about collaborating with awesome couples to create bespoke ceremonies that have energy, personality and laughter.

 A ceremony which embodies who you are as a couple and what you actually want! After all, this day is meant to be about you!

 I love weddings, and far from being the uptight and stodgy part of the day that precedes the drinks and dancing, I think the ceremony should be the very pinnacle, the bees knees, of the event!

 Working on an historic tourist train that trundles through the rainforest has made me a seasoned public speaker, photo bomber, crowd wrangler and tale spinner, and has given me a love of meeting new people!

 I work with couples who are after a casual and relaxed event that’s sweet and simple, and couples who want to pack as much as they can into this awesome and special day, couples who are in mutual weirdness and want to showcase their individuality, quirks and passions, and couples who are eloping with only a few of their nearest and dearest. In short, whatever you envision for your wedding day – I’m in!
