Hello there…


WELCOME

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Are you looking for a celebrant with heart and soul who will work with you to bring just the right amount of colour and sentiment to your special day? If so, you have just found the right one for you.

Hi, I am Robynne Mauger and I am a registered Commonwealth Civil and Marriage Celebrant with the Australian Attorney General’s department.

I’d love to turn your wishes into your reality.

I live, work, and play in the beautiful Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges in Victoria. I have lived in the area for over 40 years and know those secret hideaway places to make romantic memories. When not a celebrant I am a tour guide in this beautiful piece of paradise and also help new migrants settle into their chosen community and help them learn English.

I live on a small off-the-grid farm with my married partner Carol and together we grow vegetables, love and grandchildren. Our values are strong for people and the environment.

If you are looking for a relaxed, creative, alternative celebrant who meets your values then I am happy to chat.

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than hosting an intimate ceremony in my garden and sending the couple on their way with beautiful memories.

Robynne Mauger

My offers

Let’s meet to see what you have in mind. My shout for coffee.

Call Robynne on 0417 124 814 or email: rainbowcelebrantyarravalley@outlook.com

I will craft and conduct beautiful ceremonies for

  • marriages
  • vow renewals
  • anniversaries
  • significant birthdays
  • naming days
  • memorials and funerals

Just imagine you two, your witnesses and celebrant, by a secret waterfall hidden deep in the rain forest of Yarra Valley. A slight breeze on your face, the soft water your celebration music. Could it get any better than that?

Have you made a commitment and now wish to seal the legals? Perhaps you have been together for millennia and now wish to secure legal status.

Let me turn your most intimate wishes into a beautiful reality and ceremony.

I offer:

  • An obligation free first meeting
  • Marriages for all couples
  • Specialist in same sex weddings
  • Ceremonies with just legals or the whole package
  • Creative wedding scripts
  • Welcome international couples
  • Comprehensive readings, poems and blessings
  • Excellent PA when needed
  • Attend to all legal paperwork and lodgement plus more…

I specialise in making memories for people who don’t fit in the box. I love to twist convention and make those most outrageous thoughts your dream ceremony.

I love to see Mrs & Mrs, Mr & Mr, or Mr & Mrs happily wed. I love the unique, alternative, unusual and definitely people who don’t tick ‘ordinary’.

Have you thought about having a breakfast ceremony in your pyjamas? What about that place where you first kissed? Making your commitment in a hot air balloon over green fields? It can come true. And you can party whenever it suits you.

 


First steps first

  1. Firstly let’s meet to feel the connection
  2. Confirm availability for your date
  3. Complete the Notice Of Intended Marriage here NOIM
  4. Have original identification documents
  5. Proof of eligibility to marry
  6. Start planning the ceremony

Planning your day

The most important thing is to hear your story. That sets the ceremony framework, and we build on it from there. We both ask lots of questions to get a feel for how you want your day to unfold.

The creative juices flow and a beautiful ceremony is crafted which depicts you and your story. I love authenticity, heart and raw emotion that true love brings. Forget the show ponies and gimmicks; just look in your hearts. Because that’s the real thing.

I look after you from the beginning of the big day. Providing guidance, inspiration and control to make sure your ceremony is your own.


On the big day

You will probably be nervous, but that’s ok. I am there to help keep things running smoothly.

You will say the Monitum and the legal vows that Australian Law requires plus whatever you decided to include in your own ceremony.

You will sign the marriage certificates, as will your two witnesses, and me as your celebrant.

After the emotional rush is over the legal documents are lodged with Births, Deaths and Marriages in the state they were conducted.

You can then contact BDM to apply for your Marriage Registration which can be used to change your name officially if needed.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“This week we were blessed to be able to celebrate our marriage. We contacted Robynne at Rainbow Celebrant Yarra Valley a couple of months ago and from the start we knew we had found the right person to be part of our special day. To write words that connect deep to the couple who are getting amrried is not an easy thing. Robynne was thoughtful and considered. We trusted her completely with our story and our vision. On the day Robynne had thought of everything but more importantly she was such a calming presence and provided us with a ceremony that was full of heart and love. Any couple would be both privileged and lucky to have her invloved in their most wonderful day” Cath and Donna
