Lyn Rechnitzer - Civil Celebrant
Home Testimonials

I am writing to thank you for being part of our wedding celebration and for your contribution in our ceremony. From the day we met, you put us at ease and we knew our ceremony would be in good hands.  I thought that having an interfaith wedding (Jewish/Christian) would be challenging but your recommendations struck the perfect balance. We loved how you embraced not only our cultures but our individual personalities.  

Your delivery and professionalism as a celebrant was outstanding and it is evident that you enjoyed being there on the day, sharing our moment with us as much as we did.  

I also wanted to pass on the feedback we received from our guests. Our friends and family commented that it was one of the nicest civil ceremonies they had been to - the way both cultures were embraced, the stories that were told and the way you delivered the ceremony kept people engaged. 

Thank you again and I would be more than happy to recommend you as a civil celebrant as you were part of the reason that our wedding day turned out exactly how we wanted it to be.

Hi Lyn,

Dale & I would like to say a very big thank you for being our celebrant! 
The weather on our wedding day was fantastic & we were so lucky that we were able to have our ceremony in such a beautiful & intimate setting under the oak trees. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. The ceremony itself was lovely, heartfelt & genuine. Many of our friends & family commented afterwards that they truly felt enveloped by warmth & love during the ceremony.
Thank you to both yourself & Charles for all your efforts on the day & your fantastic organisation & preparation leading up to it. You helped make our ceremony a personal & touching celebration of our commitment to one another. We also really appreciated your sense of humour & you made us both feel very comfortable & relaxed on the day.
It has been wonderful to get to know you over the past few months & we will not hesitate to recommend you to any friends or family who might be looking for a celebrant in the future!

Many thanks!
Gemma & Dale

Lyn is a wonderful, warm person who is very approachable and an eloquent speaker. She helped us to express ourselves in a way that reflected our personalities and emotions to make a truly personal ceremony that captured who we are as a couple. Lyn had some beautiful ideas for the wedding, and helped us to create a ceremony that reflected our respective Jewish and Irish Catholic backgrounds in a celebratory way. We had lots of great feedback from family and friends. Thank you Lyn for helping make our wedding day so special!

Natalie & Andrew​

Lyn was simply fantastic. She welcomed us into her home with such warmth that we knew from the start that she was the right person to choose for our celebrant.

It is a difficult balance to keep such warmth while maintaining professionalism, Lyn manages it with ease. Throughout the planning process, she kept us on track while being such a wonderful, helpful and organised person. She created the perfect ceremony to help us start our special day exactly how we wanted and needed it to.

The day itself was amazing and this was in no small part to Lyn. We had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the service and how personal it seemed to be. Lyn's words that seemed so right on paper, sprang to life and when she spoke them were even more perfect. She managed to bring the warmth that we saw from the start, the laughter we knew was us and even a few (happy) tears.

Lyn, we would like to thank you so much for everything you did to help make this day start so wonderfully. We could not have asked for someone better or more suited to us, to make this day what it was.

Love Irene and John.

Lyn Rechnitzer did a perfect job as the celebrant for our wedding. She offered guidance all along the way in all aspects of the marriage process, from the legal formalities through to assisting us with putting together vows that matched both our personalities! She speaks brilliantly and unlike many celebrants we’ve heard at other weddings, struck the perfect balance, capturing the romance of the day without going over the top. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism and were truly delighted with the amazing service she provides. Thank you Lyn!

Dear Lyn,

Inna & I have just returned back from our small break after the wedding.

On behalf of Inna and myself, thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. We both LOVED it!!!

Your ceremony was so lovely and heartfelt. We were both touched, and were so glad to have you marry us. Despite all the heat, nothing could stop the mood; we had such an amazing day with such wonderful memories created.

We will send you our highlights package once we have received it.

Best Wishes

Hi Lyn,

I was actually about to sit down and write you an email to thank you very much for such a magical ceremony. Both Anthony and I were extremely happy! You made us both feel very calm during the whole ceremony. All the guests also commented on how beautiful it was. Thank you so much again. It will be a memory that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.


Hi Lyn,

I just wanted to add my thanks and appreciation to the significant part you played in our big day.

We will always look back on the ceremony with much fondness, even if I did manage to forget a word when giving Sam the ring!

I will certainly keep you in mind for my next wedding!!

Kind regards,

Hi Lyn,

Thank you for photos and marrying us, you've done a marvellous job. In fact, our friends liked it so much that one couple would like to utilize your services at their wedding.

Leg is still in cast and am hopping all over Thailand with great difficulty, yet still fun.

Take care and regards to Charles.


Hi Lyn,

I just wanted to give you an update on Jess and I and we wanted to say a big big Thank you for everything you did on our special day; our friends and family still keep talking about how perfect everything went and how lovely the ceremony was.

Things have been going extremely smoothly and we have so many amazing memories from the wedding.

Oh, I have attached a few images of the special day, Jess just looked stunning, I never planned to cry, in fact I tried to do the opposite but couldn’t help it.

Kind Regards,

Robert and I wanted to thank you for performing our wedding ceremony.

Your personalised service was absolutely wonderful and we have received so many compliments about the ceremony from our guests. One guest even stated that our wedding was without doubt the most romantic one he had ever been to - of course, his wife was the lovely lady who did our reading mind you, so he may have been a little biased! My Great Aunt, Anita, was delighted that we included the breaking of the glass and she thought that the ceremony was wonderful.

We were both very moved and touched by your kind words and believe that we could not have chosen a more perfect celebrant to share our biggest day.

Thank you again for all your assistance and for taking the time to give us such a personal and individual ceremony.

Kate & Robert

Hi Lyn

Just a quick note to tell you what a wonderful job you did on Sunday. It was perfect really. Such a great blend of warmth and professionalism, informality and seriousness. I'm sure David and Anthea were thrilled. It made me laugh and cry. What more could you want from a ceremony!

After that the evening had to be a success. So congratulations and thanks from the sister of the groom.


Dear Lyn

Just a quick one to say thank you very much for doing such a superb job on Saturday. While I would never normally assume that I have authority to speak on Tessa’s behalf, I think I am fairly safe ground when I say that everything was exactly right on the day and that you have been fantastic throughout the whole process.

Best wishes
