Rachel Bracken

Civil Marriage Celebrant

I'm young, fun and love a good wedding.

As an events manager who loves love, and loves weddings, becoming a marriage celebrant was an easy decision. There is no greater honour than being part of the moment two people commit to sharing their lives together, loving each other wholeheartedly, making all big life decisions with the other person's best interests at heart, in front of their loved ones on one of the best days of their lives.

My main goal - apart from legally marrying you, of course - is ensuring from the moment we meet until the moment you walk back down the aisle as a married couple, is that you have fun, you're relaxed and that when you reflect back on the day, remembering your ceremony as the perfect ceremony for you. A ceremony that brings to life your individual personalities, your love story, and your hopes and dreams for the future.

When I'm not immersed in love stories, I spend my time immersed in the ocean, immersed in a good book, or immersed in puppy cuddles. I split my time between Forster and Sydney, and take every opportunity to escape to nature wherever I may be.

It's so important you choose the right celebrant for you. If it sounds like that might me me please get in touch, I'd love to meet you.

Starting from $800

Living between Forster and Sydney, I service the Lower North Coast, Hunter Valley, Newcastle and Greater Sydney regions at no additional charge. I do, however, love a good road trip and will absolutely travel for your wedding! Let me know where we're off to, and I'll let you know the travel costs.

With me as your celebrant, planning your ceremony will be fun, easy, comfortable. At our first meeting, I'll equip you with everything you need to know. You'll receive an outline of timelines, legal requirements, tips on how to write your vows or choose your music, you'll walk away with a sense of relief knowing this is the easy part.

Your ceremony will be as personalised as you'd like it to be. Whether we include your favourite poem, your personal promises to each other, right through to a completely bespoke ceremony where every single word is written just for the two of you. I'll come brimming with ideas, and will pull out all stops to bring your ideas to life.

We'll meet as often as we need to, and I'll be available to answer every phone call, text message or email. Submit an enquiry and let's catch up, see if I'm the right celebrant for you.


Rachel was the celebrant for our wedding. She made the process so easy and we didnít need to lift a finger. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She was very organised and prompt and made the process so seamless. We will definitely use Rachel again for events in future!
