Ruth Matos

Civil Marriage Celebrant

I am a fun-loving yet totally professional celebrant from South West Sydney. I am a little quirky, have a great sense of humour and can talk under water.

I absolutely love what I do, and nothing makes me happier than the wonderful reviews I receive from my clients.

I believe that every ceremony should be as unique as the people it is celebrating, whether it be birth, love or life.

I love a wedding. Whether it be in a backyard, a five star hotel or in the bush.... it is really all about the love, the venue just changes.

Getting married is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life, and so your wedding day should be a memorable one.

We all have different ideas on what we expect on our wedding day. Some of us want large celebrations with all the trimmings, others prefer intimate gatherings, and of course there are always elopements.

Regardless of how large or small, how intricate or laid back you plan your day, it is important that the most important part of the day – the ceremony – is perfect.

By choosing a civil ceremony for your wedding day, you are able to have input into how your ceremony is planned. This allows you to be more creative and add a more personal touch to your marriage ceremony.

Many couples choose to include marriage rituals into their ceremony such as hand-fasting and sand ceremonies. Couples who are bringing children into the marriage may also wish to incorporate them into the ceremony

Naming ceremonies are designed to formally introduce your new child into the world, surrounded in celebration by close family and friends.

Many people are choosing civil celebrants to officiate this ceremony as it gives them the freedom to design the ceremony they want to celebrate the birth and naming of their child.

Parents are able to include older siblings in the ceremony, which celebrates the child into the family as a unit, as well as into the circle of close family and friends.

Children are often assigned “Godparents” or “Guardians” by their parents, to help guide them into adulthood.

Marriage is not always easy, and it important to celebrate all of the important milestones along the way. Renewal of Vows is a great way to do this.

Many couples feel the need to renew their vows for varying reasons. Some choose to renew their vows on a special anniversary, such as their 50th Anniversary. Others may choose to do so after hardship or separation.

Regardless of the reason, it is a wonderful excuse for a celebration.

Client Testimonials

"Ron and I would like to thank Ruth for the beautiful ceremony on 28/1 for our vow renewal...this was incorporated into my husbands 50th birthday party and was a surprise to me and our guests. Ruth took the time and initiative to make this event unique to us and very special..... You're a special lady... Thank you from the bottom of our hearts." Tracy & Ron

"Ruth conducted our renewal of vows in May and we were so pleased with our ceremony! It was personalised to include our children and parents, which made it even more special. We purchased her commemorative folder containing our ceremony and certificate which was of exceptional quality and is a lovely keepsake. We would totally recommend Ruth for any ceremony as she is warm, friendly and has a great sense of humor!" Louise & Jamie

Same sex marriage is not yet legal in Australia.

However, as a celebrant I can offer you a commitment ceremony which enables you and your partner the ability to declare your love for each other in a ceremony in front of your friends and family.

Similar to a marriage ceremony, you can incorporate your own personal vows and readings, exchange rings, and add other types of commitment rituals to the ceremony.


Amazing service and amazing woman! Catered to our requests and so pleasant to deal with the whole process was so smooth and we felt so comfortable. She is just a lovely soul and will go beyond to make your ceremony unique and suited to each individual couples wants and needs ♡ Not only have you given us the special moment we wanted but we have also had the chance to meet such a genuinely lovely person. Our family thanks you xx

Shannon & Veli

Thank you Ruth for all that you did for us. You took on board our quirkiness and knew just how to make our day unique and totally us. This was number two for both of us and you nailed it. I would recommend you to everyone I know and even those I don't. From Tony and I thank you.

Donna & Tony

Ruth was so organised throughout the whole process (of our marriage). We really had no idea where to start! She gave us some great ideas and incorporated what we wanted to give our ceremony a personal feel. It was perfect (other than the wind)!

Erin & Brendan

Ruth, I can not thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony you put together for our big day! You were an absolute pleasure to have by our sides! I couldn't imagine the day without you! You were beyond helpful when it came to all the prep before and organizing our marriage certificate after! Thanks so much.
