Soulful Sunshne coast ceremonies, with a bit of an edge and a whole lot of heart

“I can’t put into words what Rin means to us. If you are getting married, don’t bother looking at anyone else”

The Bicknells


Hello lovers! I’m Rin and I’ve got the credentials to make your love legally legit. A self-confessed sentimental sweetheart with a bit of an edge, I am here to flick tradition! I am a firm believer in celebrating your love, in your own way. Gone are the days of boring bible readings and uninspired aisle music. There are only a few legal hoops to jump through, the sky is the limit for the rest of your nuptials. I will move mountains to make sure your ceremony is a radical party of love sans the boring cliché definitions of love and marriage. 


All love is unique, and I take the time and dig deep to get to know you and your love vibe. I will be your wedding wing-woman. I’ll support and guide you through the whole process into marital bliss. The result is a ceremony that totally encapsulates you and has your guests thinking that I’ve always been your mate.

“Rin is an absolute boss at her job. She had us in fits of laughter and then moments later wiping away tears. She told our love story better than we did. She wants you to have your moment and really bask in it. She is breaking the celebrant stereotype and crushing it! If you want a unique ceremony, Rin Ilett is the human you need!”

The Ledgers


I am down to earth & have a fresh approach to the wedding biz. I am a Mum to three little legends & a wife to a tattoo-slingin’ punk. A left-of-field ceremony enthusiast, I am here to help you say your nuptials without adhering to any outdated traditional or social wedding norms. Compassion to all living beings, and inclusion are two things that I care about deeply, which is why I live a consciously earth and animal friendly life and am in full support of all love.

If I sound like your girl, get in contact and let the good times roll!

“I was introduced to Rin and from the moment we met I knew she was the celebrant for us. She listens to what you, as a couple wish for. Needless to say our day would not have been the same had we not had Rin. Still to this day our guests ask who our celebrant was and talk about how awesome she was”

Low key lovers


Want to say your I do’s at your kitchen table with a side of beer and pizza? This is the package for you. Registry style without the stuffy courtroom. Just the legal jargon, wherever you like.  Eloping? This is most likely the option for you! Also a good option if you’re planning on tying the knot overseas to avoid any legal recognition problems you may face when you return home.



All the bells and whistles


This is one for the couples who want the whole radical love party. I create a ceremony that is totally reflective of you. You want readings, rituals and your dog as a ring bearer, you got it. I tell your story and all your guests will hear me loud & clear via my fancy P.A. We meet for a chat over a coffee or drink so I can get a good feel of your love vibe and how you want your ceremony. As your wedding wing-woman you can contact me whenever you need for wedding related advice or a voice of reason for when those pesky family members start to get in your ear with their ideas on how your wedding should be. I can help you write your vows and a wedding rehearsal is also included.

“We were so privileged to have Rin as part of our day. She was so relaxed, calming, organised and professional. Rin spoke about us beautifully and really captured our story and the mood we were after. We had no idea what we were doing before Rin was involved but then she came in and took care of everything. I don’t know what either of us would have done without her by our side the whole way!”
