Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant

I strive to find the beauty and majesty in life, every moment of every day. When we work together, I look to capture your inner essence and guide you to express those qualities in your ceremony. Communicate your dreams to me and together we will bring them to life, capturing them in the magic of ritual.

Why I Chose to Become a Marriage Celebrant
I became a marriage celebrant because I found it such a buzz writing my own magical, fun and totally unique conscious wedding ceremony. My husband and I are two people who joined together on a journey of growth. Our love and trust keeps us together, our intuition guides us. We consult with each other, we are friends, we laugh a lot and we are equals who care as much about each other as ourselves!

My gorgeous son Jack & daughter Kali on Kali's Wedding Day. Jack was the Bestman and he scooped her up for a photo with her Angel Wings flying. I love my children so much and I always encouraged them to spread their wings, reach for the stars and shoot for the moon to be or do anything they wanted in this life!

A Lifetime of Experience Combined with Extensive Experience as a Celebrant Results in Weddings With The WOW Factor!
I love to laugh, have fun, be creative, be present in the moment, live a peaceful, happy and full life surrounded by loving energy. I have a lifetime of experience in public speaking, creative writing, dramatic performance and direction, event management, communication, tourism, lecturing & training. I have organised events and public meetings for up to a thousand people and addressed them and facilitated workshops. I have performed as an actor in productions before crowds of eight hundred people and am very comfortable working with intimate or large groups from all walks of life and can engage them all equally well. My experience as a writer and director in theatre allows me to choreograph the ceremony I write for your wedding to get the best photos and the most intimate connection between you and your family and friends and produce a seamless ceremony that has your guests totally intrigued. My work and life experiences have given me a raft of skills and knowledge. I have a vast general knowledge through study, research and reading and personal travel and experiences with different cultures. I have unbounded enthusiasm, a bubbly personality and emotional intelligence and I am guided strongly by my intuition.

A Lifetime of Travel for Work and Adventure
I have travelled the world for work and pleasure and bring those amazing experiences to you in unique and special sub ceremonies. I also specialise in spiritual conscious sacred weddings.(not religious). I studied a variety of Asian history, traditions and religions at Sydney University. I am adventurous, curious and intrigued by different cultures and their traditions. I have travelled alone and independently to Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras and Belize in Central America and USA and Canada, Greece, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, France, England, Austria, Switerland and Thailand and traveled with friends and family to Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, India and Nepal and New Zealand and many Pacific Islands. I worked as a teacher and senior lecturer for Aboriginal Trainee Teachers in Numbulwar in South Eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory for three years. Numbulwar is a very remote settlement only accessible only by bull dust dirt roads with no signs or 3 hours from Darwin by light aircraft. The Aboriginal people are the traditional owners of the land and speak the Nunggubuyu Language the third most difficult language in the world..say Linguists. I also worked in the Southern United States for a year on a cultural exchange in North Carolina.

My Personal Interests
My passions all involve elements of creativity, dancing in many styles including Lindy Hop, Salsa, Rock & Roll Ballroom, Directing & Acting in Theatrical Productions Drama, Comedy, Pantomime & Mime. I do Tai Chi & Qi Gong, Yoga, World Travel, Community Development, Art - Sculpture, Painting and Graphic Design, Bush Walking, Scuba Diving, Kayaking, Camping, Swimming (not all at the same time). I practise Vipassana Meditation daily and I love tending to my Herb Garden, making home made sourdough bread and cultured vegetables and making my home with my beautiful husband an Oasis of Peace, Tranquility and Happiness from the hustle & bustle of the outside world.
