Marilyn. Thanks again for the wonderful ceremony. I loved how moved you yourself were and how brilliantly you adjusted your voice to the sound of the ocean. Everyone could hear you. You truly made us feel very special. L Sonja x

Both of us were rather nervous about getting married in the first place and thus found the prospect of meeting with the wedding celebrant rather daunting. However, when we first met Marilyn, all of our fears were blown away. She had a lovely presence, was totally authentic and let us be who we wanted to be. It was all about us and our ideas, which showed us how sensitive Marilyn is. Immediately, we felt at ease and knew we'd go ahead with her. Her kindness and her support helped us to get through the preparation for the wedding and her professionalism made the journey very easy and enjoyable. Her resources were utterly helpful in composing our vows and the wonderful input she gave us for the ceremony were simply amazing. She helped us to design the ceremony according to our needs and personalities, which ultimately made our wedding an unforgettable day that we will carry in our hearts for rest of our lives. Thanks Marilyn, your presence at our celebration was the icing of the cake. We are so lucky to have had you there with us. Love Sonja & Sandro xox

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Banthip & Sai married at The Lakeside Hut Gold Coast Botanic Gardens Benowa
Marilyn is the best marriage celebrant in the world everything was totally perfect for our wedding ceremony, she did an excellent job in every detail from start to finish. From the first time I contacted Marilyn to after the wedding she was extremely helpful as she is such a kind, cheerful and warm person. I felt like I had known her for many years and she has such a great soul on her. Her celebrant service to us was totally outstanding and so accomplished as she always strives for perfection. Marilyn wrote an brilliant wedding ceremony for us with a beautiful touching poem that brought tears to our eyes that remembered my recently departed brother in law. Marilyn included the Rod Nam Sang Shell Ceremony that celebrated my wife’s Thai heritage and her mother and father began the Shell Ceremony with a water blessing as in the Thai Tradition then the family followed with their blessings. I want to thank Marilyn so much for helping me with my personal wedding vows for the big day 10/10/2013. When I think of my vows on the day it brings tears to my eyes and I cannot believe how powerful my vows were, especially as they came from my heart. I normally never cry but during my vows the tears welled up and I tried not to cry. Thanks to Marilyn also for helping Banthip with her vows as they were so beautiful. I'm very happy and impressed with all the work and effort Marilyn put in for us, it was spot on. Marilyn’s work is totally outstanding, professional and touching with extraordinary attention to detail. We were very lucky to have her as our Marriage Celebrant as she fulfilled all of our needs and expectations and more. Banthip and I love your work and we thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect! We will both remember this very special day for the rest of our lives. Kind regards,  Sai Huynh & Banthip Butprasit xoxo

Conscious Marriage

We nourish each other and ourselves in living by the five Zen Buddhist precepts:

From The I Ching

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts, they shatter even the strength of iron and bronze.
And when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts,
Their words are sweet and strong like the fragrance of orchids.

Tibetan Ruby Crystal Singing Bowl Ceremony

Inner peace and tranquillity can be hard to achieve but the power of sound can inspire our spirit, re-vitalise our body and harmonise our being with the universe. Strike the bowl gently and follow the sound for as long as it resonates. Open your heart and just be - don't do.

Gabrielle plays the Tibetan singing Bowl for Gordon ans Fatima's Wedding

An outstanding quartz crystal tool of loving protection with the powerful vibration of mystical Ruby, a "stone of nobility". It radiates spiritual wisdom, health, transformation and wealth. The Ruby Bowl sounds a lavish red spectrum that "lights" interior planes of Self. Ruby crystal carries an enduring, perfectly brilliant diamond frequency we crave in relationships, enhancing soul love connection, Tantric practice and unifying root and crown chakra energies.

Ruby Crystal Bowl is the same as the Tibetan Singing Bowl

Celtic Shell Ceremony

Marry Me Marilyn Verschuure Rituals I have written an original shell ceremony based on an old Celtic Blessing. Family and friends can participate and bless you with the water in the shell.

The shell ceremony is also part of the Thai Buddhist wedding ceremony. The celebrant soaks the couple's hands in water and wish them good luck. The water is contained in a conch shell.

Dear Marilyn, We would like to thank you again for your beautiful contribution to our wedding. From the moment we met at your place we knew we had made the right choice to choose you as our celebrant. You helped us answering many questions and provided professional advice and support. It was great to discuss our wedding plans with you and you made it actually very easy to get it all together. You really gave us a chance to make the day exactly how we wanted, intimate, passionate, personal en powerful! We love the fact you are so flexible whether it is the venue or the script. We can imagine that our wedding was about the smallest wedding you have ever done, but we wouldn’t have had it any other way! With our bare feet in the sand! We loved it and we know you did too! Without hesitation we can and will recommend you to everyone who wants to get married! Merit & Martijn

Marry Me Marilyn was the perfect choice for us and we can't thank her enough! Our perfect day was on the harbour up in Darwin. What a magical day with fireworks and sunset aboard a boat with all our family and friends. I was so nervous about the vows and with Marilyn's help on the day the words just flowed and for someone who normally hates public speaking this was just an amazing experience. We decided to write our love story for our wedding and this was all new to us as we hadn't heard much about it before. When Marilyn sent us through some examples we knew she was onto something and with her help it ended up being both emotional and funny with some great lines that had the crowd in stitches. Our guests told us our wedding ceremony was the best most interesting wedding they had ever seen. The ceremony itself went absolutely spot on with both my wife and I struggling with all the organising we were overwhelmed how well Marilyn pulled it all together with such professionalism. The ceremony was more in-depth than what we imagined. With some fresh ideas from Marilyn we co-created our own original sand & shell ceremony. This was so special for us and really touched our family. We were so happy with the way she organised our big day via Skype. The prep work all came together far better than we could have imagined :). Prior to our wedding we attended two other weddings of friends that were both good days. Unfortunately both ceremonies had the same bad celebrant that may have been a butcher in a past life and that's how we realised how important having a good celebrant really is. After doing some research we were lucky that Marilyn was available to travel across the country so we could be married by someone who really cares about her work and the couple. It's so refreshing not to be just a job but share in her passion to make your event perfect! Marilyn you made our day and we are forever grateful. Love Jack & Philadelphia x

Marilyn our ceremony was filled with a lot of laughs as well as tears and our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed our love story. We couldn’t have imagined it another way. Such a beautiful being, we hope many other couples are lucky enough to have you as part of their day! What really stood out for us was the effort you put in to get to know us as a couple and put together our own personalised ceremony. We planned our Gold Coast wedding from Ayers Rock as we live and work there, it was pretty hard trying to coordinate all things wedding via phone calls and email yet Marilyn made the ceremony planning a breeze! Marilyn you were very professional to deal with. When it came to the day her presence was very reassuring and she took a lot of the stress away! Thank you again love Jodie & Sean xoxoxo
