John & Carol 20 September 2021

After searching for sometime looking for a reasonable and professional marriage celebrant to help me celebrate my parents vow renewal, I found Eileen online and I can honestly say she is absolutely AMAZING!  Not only did she have constant communication skills between us throughout our whole experience (plus rescheduling dates because of Covid), she was always a phone call/email away to help us.

So all I can honestly say is if you are looking for a celebrant, I can honestly say I would recommend Eileen!!! for her services to anyone.

So THANK YOU for all you have done Eileen, not only I but my parents want to thank you once again, for all your hard work and making my parents day special.     Christine Robaina

Enoch & Alycia, Mudgeeraba 26 September 2020

We would like to thank Eileen for making our ceremony so beautiful. It wouldn't have been the same without her.  She is so kind and caring and only has your best interests at heart. Eileen is very detail oriented and goes through every single thing with you to make sure you are comfortable with everything for the day.  She has so much experience and gave us lots of tips and made recommendations of things we wouldn't have even thought of.  Without her help we wouldn't have been able to have such a nice ceremony where we were also able to incorporate my husband's Baha'i requirements of the ceremony.  Thanks for making our day so special.

Eileen was just wonderful.  Her friendly nature and experience definitely showed from the first visit and my wife and I were so happy we chose her.  We had a number of phone calls, emails and visits with Eileen to go through details and she didn't hesitate to give us guidance and ideas along the way.  Definitely highly recommended.

Marc & Christine

Marc & Christine, Eight Mile Plains 25 October 2019

Eileen has been a celebrant for decades. As a wedding DJ, I have seen her style and dedication to making one's "special day" a most memorable one.  For my wedding there was never going to be another but Eileen.  You cannot go wrong with this lady....she is believable as a celebrant (as a mobile DJ I have seen disappointing services from other Celebrants)...you really do walk away feeling that was an amazing ceremony.  Thank you Eileen from Chris & Marc Woolston

"Dear Eileen, Thank you for your company, your service and the continued friendship we have shared for nearly 20 years. I consider you a big part of our family and it would not be the same without you if you weren't our celebrant. We appreciate your kindness and your dedication.  Lots of love from Teliah and Stacey, Logan, Ebony, Zahlia, Azura, Shiloh, Evelyn, Ariane, Linken, Zayne and Teague. xoxoxo"

Eileen was a brilliant celebrant. She prepared the ceremony step by step and taught us what we need to prepare; she gave us a ceremony at her place and also helped my wife to find an interpreter, very nice and she gave us lots of help and guide during the event as I need to apply partner visa for my wife, thank you! I would strongly suggest my friend to invite Eileen as their celebrant in future

Paul & Inga

Paul & Inga, Cleveland 8 July 2018

Eileen was brilliant.  She met with us more than once before the 'big day' and took us through the whole process step by step.  It was so easy!  She really helps to make the ceremony 'yours' and provided a little 'inspiration' when it was needed.  Our day was perfect and it started with the ceremony - thanks Eileen

Naming Day for Isabella

Naming Day for Isabella, Ipswich 8 July 2018

On Sunday we celebrated our daughters first birthday and naming ceremony with a small gathering at our home.

Eileen provided for us the most thoughtful, warm, personal ceremony which suited our family perfectly and the tone of the day.

Eileen worked with me for months in advance and took our every need into consideration. We were gifted beautiful certificates to commemorate the day and Eileen was patient, professional and made us all feel at ease while we all rushed to put the finishing touches on things for the ceremony.  We would love to sincerely thank Eileen for making Isabella's day so memorable and unique.

Eileen thank you so much for helping Scott and I create our magical day the way we wanted; small, simple and sweet.  Having it in your office was beautiful. You are so warm, loving and welcoming.  We would highly recommend you. You even made our daughter who was unwell feel comfortable and included in our day.

Again we thank you so so so so much!

Owen & Julie

Owen & Julie, Tamborine 5 May 2018

Fantastic service. Eileen helped us organise the ceremony and our day was so special because we got to choose the ceremony we felt most comfortable with; we used words we felt agreed more to who we are and connect with our families. Eileen even spoke in Spanish for me at the end of the ceremony.

No one else but Eileen could have done such a perfect ceremony; she is a smart sweet woman who knows what she is doing and your wedding will be just beautiful!

Greg & Theresa

Greg & Theresa, Eagleby 21 April 2018

Thank you so much Eileen.  We will always be grateful to you for providing us with the most beautiful and memorable wedding day of our lives and so happy we chose you to be our celebrant.

Right from the first meeting with Eileen, she listened to what we wanted. We felt her warm nature yet professional and well organised attitude within herself and her services.  We knew then that Eileen was the  marriage celebrant for us.

Eileen's flexibility in letting us choose our vows and poems from her extensive range made it even easier to choose what suited us best for our big day. We had the most romantic and beautiful ceremony we could have ever asked for and it was as though Eileen had known us for years.  It was absolutely perfect and all our guests agreed!  A huge thank you.

Eileen offered plenty of knowledgeable advice that made it even easier for us to organise our day.  Eileen also managed to help organise everyone else for us as well as advising us of details she thought appropriate.  Our big day would have been a complete and utter disaster without Eileen because we had to postpone our wedding originally scheduled for October 2017 due to my partner having an accident.  And then on our actual wedding day last month, our photographer failed to show up.  Eileen found a solution for each of these problems to quickly eliminate our stress and calm the situation. Only a celebrant with such experience and professionalism could have managed to pull this off for us to ensure our wedding day ran as smoothly as it did.

We would highly recommend Eileen and strongly advise others to do themselves a favour and contact her too, so you can have the pleasure of experiencing such a well organised professional marriage celebrant who will make your day memorable.   "5 Stars plus"

Chris & Julie

Chris & Julie, Bribie Island 4 September 2017

A big thank you to Eileen for her warm nature and professional service. she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us apply for an extension of time whilst working through all the paperwork.  She didn't hesitate in travelling a long distance to the ceremony.

We were very happy with the ceremony and the beautiful words and wishes were heartfelt.  We are very grateful for all her help and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Eileen for any wedding ceremony.

Phillip & Crystal

Phillip & Crystal

My husband Phillip and I want to say a BIG thank you to Eileen Riley for all her services and we very much appreciated all the help she provided to us over these past few months.

Eileen Riley was the first person my husband and I chose to meet with in regards to looking for a Marriage Celebrant and because of how reassuring and comforting Eileen was, my husband and I knew straight away that Eileen was who we wanted.

Eileen was very thorough about everything that needed to happen to make our wedding ceremony a success and exactly the way we wanted.  Eileen was always happy to help me with any questions and enquiries (and I did have A LOT) I had in regards to our upcoming ceremony.

I would without doubt refer Eileen Riley's services to anyone.


Thank you

Crystal & Phillip Schuck

Chris & Zarra

Chris & Zarra

Eileen was perfect. Very helpful, beautiful personality. She makes sure you're happy with everything right from the beginning of the process.  Wouldn't have had the most perfect day if it wasn't for her.  She arrives 30 mins earlier to make sure things are going smoothly.  She is the best choice.

100% recommend her services.

Robert & Anthea

Robert & Anthea, Melbourne

The most important thing when choosing a celebrant is that you are both comfortable with the person you choose. Right from the outset, we knew that Eileen was the right celebrant for us; she is warm and engaging, she listens carefully and provides considered advice. We needed someone who would give us the confidence that all would be well as we were organising everything from Melbourne for our wedding in Brisbane. Eileen proved to be just what we needed - always ready to offer advice, prompt us when needed and reassure us as the day approached.

Eileen was fabulously well organised and her warm but authoritative delivery was just the balance we wanted. So many of our guests complimented us on our choice of celebrant. We wholeheartedly recommend Eileen Riley as a warm, engaging celebrant and consummate professional.

John & Ruth

John & Ruth

Last November my husband John and I got married, for which we owe a great deal of gratitude to Eileen. Without her assistance our wedding would never have eventuated. To say we had a difficult time trying to submit all the correct paper work prior to the wedding was an understatement, but Eileen helped us every step of the way.

The wedding day came; we had the most beautiful ceremony given by Eileen. Every detail was the way we hoped and imagined it to be. Eileen had everything under control, especially us who were a little overwhelmed at the time. Then spent the most amazing day and night celebrating with our families and dearest of friends.

John and I will never forget this day and will always be thankful to Eileen for making it happen.

Aaron & Andie

Aaron & Andie

Our wedding celebrant Eileen Riley was amazing!  She is kind, caring and super organised!  She really cares about her couples and helping the ceremony run smoothly.  She helped the boys pre-ceremony, kept everyone on track and was always available for a chat in the lead up to the wedding.

We just wanted to say an extra big thank you to Eileen for conducting not only our wedding in 2012 but also most recently, the naming for our little boy Oliver.  It as so easy to work with Eileen during our wedding.  She was so helpful and was able to support us in making our ceremony exactly the way we hoped it would be.  Once we had Ollie, we knew we wanted Eileen to conduct his naming ceremony for us, just to make it that little bit extra special.  Once again, Eileen was flexible and had just the right words to say.  We would love Eileen to be our celebrant for our other children's naming ceremonies also!

Julian & Clare

Julian & Clare

From the moment my husband and I sat down with Eileen to chat about what we wanted from our wedding ceremony, we instantly felt relaxed and knew that the running of the ceremony was going to go smoothly. Eileen always made herself available for any questions that I had no matter how obscure, and ensured that every possible scenario was accounted for, not just for our ceremony but for the entire day. 

As expected from the moment I arrived at the venue, Eileen was there making sure we all knew what we needed to do and as a result the ceremony went off without a hitch. I would not hesitate to recommend Eileen to anyone getting married as she made the wedding planning process as easy and as stress free as possible.

Ben & Lisa

Ben & Lisa

We celebrated our wedding on the 23 September 2012. We had already visited a few celebrants but Eileen was the right fit for us! She made us feel very relaxed and comfortable and under no pressure to book right then and there like we had experienced elsewhere.

Eileen was always available via email, phone or in person for any questions and never told us what we 'had' to do only what our options were. In the end we had the ceremony that we wanted and will cherish forever.

On the day Eileen did a magnificent job of keeping everyone organised and advising us all of what we needed to do and where we needed to be. I would happily recommend her services to anyone looking for a well organised, professional, and very friendly celebrant!

All I can say is that I could not have asked for a better celebrant. A+ for her in every way. She made the ceremony special and had a beautiful clear voice. She made me feel so relaxed and everyone liked her. She delivered just what we wanted. I can’t say enough how Eileen made the day special. She even changed the ceremony around for me moments before the start without a break in stride. All I can say is AAA+++.
