Meet Ruth


Hello, I’m Ruth Reinhard

And the face behind The Celebrant, Gold Coast serving the Gold Coast and hinterland in Queensland.

Queensland has been my home since 1995 after moving my family up from my home state of NSW.  After 26 years in Brisbane, I now call the Gold Coast home with its beautiful beaches, relaxed lifestyle and friendly people.

My service heart is a reflection of my parents who were involved in our community in western NSW during my upbringing. And connecting with my community and listening to stories is one of my big loves.

My celebrant work commenced in Brisbane 2008 when I become a registered Marriage Celebrant. In more recent years I have trained as a Funeral Celebrant and an End of Life Doula and added these to my portfolio of services.   I always feel so privileged when clients choose me to travel significant life events with them, almost as if I‘ve been there from the beginning.

My three adult children and their partners and a cosy tribe of grandchildren who I adore and who inspire me every day to be the best version of myself in this lifetime, fills my heart.

If my family and friends were to describe me, I hope they would say I’m kind, compassionate, authentic, passionate with a good sprinkling of humour, all traits I use in my work as a celebrant.  I’m blessed with a curious mind and I’m always seeking out unique ceremony locations and ideas that can be used down the track not just for weddings but also funerals and memorial services.

And if I have the opportunity to roam the backroads exploring country towns with a picnic in the boot and smooching around second-hand and antique stores, walking in nature, or swimming in the ocean, then I will have had a full life. And who doesn’t love being an onlooker at a country wedding and blending with the locals.  Such a country thing to do.

I revel in being a story listener and a story teller and immersing myself in the journey of my clients and can’t wait to hear your story soon.
