Cherie and Ian Raffan - Civil Marriage Celebrants NSW








About Cherie Raffan   ABOUT CHERIE

With a passion for superior customer service, I aim higher than the stars to create the very   best experience you can have - whatever the reason.

My background extends from medicine, education, housing, employment, community services and private sector employment and in all cases I have gone out of my way to exceed customer expectations – with very rewarding results.

As a Justice of the Peace for NSW I understand about ethics, regulations, legality and doing the right thing. My personal integrity epitomises this too, and I believe that we are all here to make a difference and do the very best we can with all we’ve been given.
Celebrancy has many pre-requisites and requirements if we want to succeed. Relatability and the ability to connect with people is uppermost, and my genuine love of people and helping their needs to be met, ensures that my clients feel a connection with me; their wishes are understood and followed through – often better than had been hoped for.  

I’ve been called a ‘people pleaser’ and while this is not always a good thing to be, in celebrancy it’s a great thing to be…you want your celebrant to go the extra mile to ensure your ceremony is memorable, stress-free, lots of fun, personalised and absolutely wonderful. That’s my aim and I’d go as far as to guarantee that’s the experience you’ll have when you select my services.

Whilst weddings are the most known aspect of celebrancy, I also conduct naming ceremonies, renewal of vows, commitment ceremonies and funerals. You might think from my wording a little earlier that memorable, stress-free, lots of fun, personalised and absolutely wonderful might not apply to my other services, but you’d be wrong. Even funerals can be an occasion to remember the good times, the irreverent moments, the quirky weird things that might still bring a smile to your face. With the utmost respect, we can still make funerals to be an occasion of joyful remembrance in many cases – but I agree that some just can’t be, no matter how hard we want that.

Whatever the occasion, I tailor my services to offer the very best experience possible, and look forward to discussing your needs and how best I may assist you.

Despite being based in the Hills District of north-western Sydney, your anticipated venue anywhere within Australia is within my realm of travel.
My professional, calm manner and caring, courteous demeanour will appeal across all age groups and I look forward to speaking with you to arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements.
Warm regards,
