Welcome, my name is Rikki Gross and I am a Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrant.
I perform personalized marriage ceremonies in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Toowoomba regions.
In addition to weddings, I conduct a range of life ceremonies such as commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows, naming ceremonies & celebrations of life.
Who Am I?
I am surrounded by fabulously strong and inspirational people in my life and as a result, am a proud Mum, wife, daughter, sister and Aunty.
My husband and I have two beautiful children and yes, we are totally besotted by them! I have always lived in Brisbane and despite many travels across the seas, venturing and immersing in different cultures I wouldn’t live anywhere else (unless we won lotto and therefore would save half into kids bank accounts, and buy a large property in the country!).
In my ‘me’ time I really enjoy learning to sew, baking (biscuits, cakes and sweeter side of life) and gardening.
Why did I become a Marriage Celebrant?
After all the emotions of childbirth had to offer (yes, Clive may say too many!), my mind wanted to focus on the amazing celebration of life and what it has to offer. After some time, I was in a coffee shop and overheard a couple discussing options for their wedding celebrant.
I decided that celebrating marriages was something incredibly unique, happy and of genuine interest to me. This ‘something’ was why and I am truly kicking myself I wasn’t a celebrant sooner.
What makes me a unique Marriage Celebrant?
I Include you in every aspect of creating your ideal marriage ceremony. I have no joy in creating 2 template ceremonies and reusing them over and over again.
I tailor my celebrant service for each individual couple and endeavour to make the whole ceremony process smooth.
When I present at a wedding I aim to capture my couple’s personalities and be the voice of their most magical moment.
I pride myself on client engagement, collaboration and endeavour to uphold wedding ceremony expectations.
What sums me up?
I am a person who is organised, warm, engaging, fun, genuinely interested in a couple’s story, take great pride and responsibility in my work and am a great public speaker! Life is a special gift in itself, there is no better excuse than to bring family and friends together and create fond memories which last a lifetime.
I absolutely love being a celebrant!
