About Chantell Riches (Celebrations & Ceremonies)

Hi there, my name is Chantell Riches and I’m a Professional Independent Celebrant.

Lovely to e-meet you!​

Simply put … I LOVE love!​

My wife says I’m addicted, and for once, she is completely right.​

I got engaged to my best friend in January 2018 (after a joint 8 proposals!) and we got married on 22nd September 2018! Of course, I arranged the whole day and it was spectacular – yes, I absolutely do say so myself.

I’m obsessed with love; a complete sucker for true romance,  and of course celebrating and throwing it around like confetti. I lose hours on YouTube crying over every romantic gesture, every proposal, every wedding – just any kind of celebratory love-related ceremony really!​

It is an absolute honour and privilege to be a part of someone’s special day – especially designing and officiating their perfect ceremony.

My passion for love and happiness, my fantastic listening skills and my reassuring approach allow me to design with you, a uniquely tailored and personal ceremony. I then bring to life your spectacular ceremonial desires and personally perform your rite as your very own personal Celebrant.​

Hand in hand, we create magical and meaningful memories, which will bind not only you as a couple, but your families and friends too.

We work together as a team to design and craft a personalised and unique ceremony at a time, date and venue of your choice – licensed or not.

It could be in a tipi, on a cliff, or a place of special meaning such as where you proposed. You name the place, I’ll be there!

I help with everything, from the ceremony design itself, to vows, readings, poems – whatever you want included in your special day, I can help.​

Want something a little less traditional? I have a number of unique ideas and symbolic gestures that will fit in with your values and the overall meaning behind your ceremony.​

I then bring it all to life to create the perfect day for you, your friends, and family.

My role as your Wedding Celebrant is to work closely with you to create a truly personal ceremony that is totally unique and reflects your personalities.

I allocate an entire day to you, so even if you’re running late, or like one of my couple’s – the groom forgot the rings and had to drive back to the hotel to fetch them, you have no stress in regards to time restrictions with me. The one-off price includes the following:

  • An initial video call (and unlimited thereafter)
  • Regular contact, especially leading up to the sparkly day itself
  • Unlimited emails, draft ceremony reviews/changes
  • Support, advice and guidance
  • Sample vows, poems, readings, prayers, symbolic gestures, etc
  • A ceremony designed around your values, personalities and your own love story (a hardcopy of which you’ll receive as a keepsake in a lovely presentation folder)
