Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Sarah & Gareth's Medieval Inspired Wedding Robertson Gardens Nathan Brisbane
Marilyn was amazing! From our very first meeting we knew she was perfect for our medieval inspired wedding. Her energy and excitement to create something unique empowered us, and everyone is still raving about our hand-fasting ceremony. Marilyn has endless resources, and online access means you can work on your ceremony from the office or home. She is more than happy to assist with editing and refining to make it perfect! No ask is ever too great! She even fitted in with us having a wedge tailed eagle as a ring bearer.  We would highly recommend Marilyn for any couple looking for a spiritual wedding with a personal touch, by a passionate celebrant who really cares! Thanks again Love Sarah & Gareth xoxo

From the first time we spoke to Marilyn on the phone we knew that she was special. During our first interaction we knew that she cared deeply about co-creating a unique and sacred ceremony ensuring that we felt heard in the process. She created a rough draft of our ceremony, which included all of the elements that we could have ever imagined, exceeding our expectations. We went to Marilyn's place prior to our wedding day and were able to see firsthand how much she values her work, we would call it her ART - her caring, intuitive, and heart felt approach made us feel comfortable, clear and confident about our big day. Our wedding day with Marilyn was nothing short of MAGICAL. Her creativity did not stop at the preparation, and her little tips and suggestions on the day were extremely helpful. We are so grateful for the support and guidance of Marilyn and would highly recommend booking Marilyn if you value heartfelt creativity, collaboration and an alternative & unique way of creating your marriage ceremony. Thank you from the depths of our hearts, Marilyn, for the passion and love that you bring to what you do. Thanks again for sharing your magic with us on our wedding day, we felt so blessed to be married by you! We will definitely keep in touch and share our adventures with you. Lots of love, Alyona & Alex Xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Jacinta & Kelly married at Aloha Waters Broadbeach Waters Gold Coast
Marry Me Marilyn, the best wedding celebrant & friend ever!!!!!! We chose to elope to the Gold Coast from Tasmania and nearly decided against it due to all the hassles of organising the whole event that was until I made contact with Marilyn Verschuure. Marilyn made everything so incredibly easy for us and I’m happy to say it was one of the best days of our lives, really wish we could do it all again :) Marilyn thoroughly explained the whole process and worked with us in synergy to achieve what we wanted and was happy for us to change things to reflect our personalities and beliefs. We ended up choosing a hand fasting ceremony which was amazingly personal and enabled our children to get involved as well, it went so beautifully. Marilyn helped us organise and explained all the legalities without fuss (we had a couple of things that needed extra attention) all sorted with Marilyn’s help. We would highly recommend Marilyn Verschuure to anyone who is looking to make their big day that extra bit special. We were honoured to have you as our celebrant Marilyn :) Thank you for enabling me to marry my soul mate and best friend, I am forever grateful! Jacinta x We were really happy with the handfasting cords you made for us thank you, we will treasure them forever xx P.S. See you in a few years for our renewal of vows :)

Dear Marilyn, We are writing to you for two reasons.  Firstly, to say a huge THANK YOU for helping us achieve the most wonderful wedding and celebration of love.  With your wisdom and amazing skills, our wedding was more beautiful and special, than even we could have envisioned. Secondly, we want to tell you just how special YOU are. From start to finish you provided care, clarity, wisdom and inspiration, not only in your approach with us, but also in the necessary processes. You were open and inviting to new ideas and supported us with a magical energy that we definitely connected with and which we shared throughout the journey together. You helped us bring out into words and ritual, the energy and love we have shared for so long and helped us express this and share this with our friends and family. You helped us express to our community how grateful we are for the connection and love Simon and I both share and for the ways in which this is experienced with our family members and friends. It is with you and your experience and skills that we were able to achieve our dreams of a celebration of love, which would not only be remembered, but which would be felt for years to come! Marilyn, you were the perfect person to have as our celebrant!  We are so deeply grateful and feel so blessed to have shared this amazing moment with you.  Thank you and we hope you like the photos.With loads of love and happiness, Simon and Marti xoxoxoxox

Marry Me Marilyn ties the Handfasting Ribbons of Love around Sylvia & Chris' Hands at the Courthouse Restaurant in Cleveland Point

Marry Me Marilyn Love Letter from Sylvia & Christopher - Wedding The Courthouse Restaurant Cleveland Point Redlands
Wow, I can't believe it has been two weeks since our wedding and I am writing this letter, so you may know Chris and I think you are the Best Wedding Celebrant in the World! – I think the wedding ceremony, is one of the most important parts of a wedding, where the love, for a bride and groom is declared between themselves, family and friends. I wanted a ceremony, something that was personalised and a ceremony that would captivate our family and friends, not have “just another boring ceremony”. I found the best wedding celebrant in the world – Marilyn – on the internet, and after viewing her website, made phone contact, found her to be helpful, informative and friendly! The next step was meeting up in person and the best I can describe, meeting Marilyn is like meeting a friend, she has genuine warmth and instantly makes you feel at ease – after a cup of coffee, laughter – we got down to the business side of things, where she explains clearly, the different types of ceremonies, giving you as much input as you wish to make, or if you are a busy person – how little. Our ceremony was personally tailored for us, on what we wanted ( Marilyn is a listener and gives great advice and has available amazing resources) – the planning of the ceremony consisted of sending emails to and fro with drafts, (since I wanted a LOT of input, there were lots of emails – no added expense) until we had it just perfect! Marilyn makes you feel special, as if your wedding is the only wedding she is planning – in fact her attention to detail, would be, as if it was her own wedding. The day itself was beautiful and Marilyn looked beautiful (she consults in colours and what we would like her to wear – she has an extensive wardrobe) as you can imagine, a celebrant is featured in wedding photos! Our true love story and weaving of other magical ceremonies within, had our guests in tears and truly mesmerized from beginning to end. Marilyn herself delivered the ceremony with meaning – each word she spoke was hung on to by the guests…as she put in 110% effort into creating a feeling of love and wonderment. If there is a bride to be reading this now, stop thinking, pick up the telephone, it is the best decision you will ever make! And your wedding will be – as you wish it to be…….and hassle free. So, I end this testimonial, with a heartfelt thank you to Marilyn, from Chris and myself, for we see you now, not just as a “celebrant” but a friend who made our day very special, from beginning to the end. Love Chris & Sylvia xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Esther & Steve's Wedding on Woorim Beach Bribie Island South East Queensland
Marilyn stood out when we were looking for a celebrant on the internet and we instantly knew she was the one that was going to marry us. She was different to all the others that we looked at and we felt we were on the same wavelength. She was very enthusiastic, open and friendly. Throughout the planning Marilyn was very supportive and open minded and the fact we lived a long way from each other was no problem at all. Marilyn’s resources had so many different ideas and hundreds of different vows, poems readings, example ceremonies etc, which enabled us to plan and make up our own individual ceremony as we wanted it and together with her experience and feedback we were able to achieve our perfect wedding.  We wanted a small, intimate Beach ceremony with true meaning. To honour our time spent in India we chose to incorporate an Arti, an Indian ritual, recognising and paying tribute to our higher self. Marilyn, was very enthusiastic about it and encouraged us to incorporate it as it reflected who we are. We also included an original Seven Chakra Handfasting that Marilyn designed and wrote which had such beautiful energy! The day itself was amazing and perfect! Everything went very well and we definitely recommend Marilyn! Thank you Marilyn for making our day so memorable! Esther & Steve Crocker xoxo

Thanks to Marilyn we had a perfect wedding ceremony. We didn’t really know what we wanted but we knew we wanted it to be unique, and Marilyn devised an original ceremony that suited us completely. We felt so comfortable with our Buddhist themed vows, and so many of the guests commented on what a nice touch the Handfasting was. Preparation was also a breeze: as we were organising the wedding from afar, Marilyn eased the stress with her easy and efficient communication, as well as her intuitive guidance. She really has a talent for picking a couple’s personality, both individually and as a unit, and draws on her wealth of experience to create something distinctive and special! Thank you Marilyn, for making our special day so perfect! love Rachel and Cameron xoxo

Marilyn thank you so much for our most unique, inspiring & magical wedding ceremony ever! I was very nervous about the ceremony since it was a second marriage for me and neither of us were spring chickens... We wanted something that would combine a bit of our shared heritage, a bit of tradition, and a bit of fun, but something that was completely individual (as all brides do!). Marilyn managed to incorporate all of this into a ceremony that was relatively short, witty and completely unique. She answered all of our questions, and didn't mind my many long, quirky email conversations that it took, to get things 'just right'. It was important to me that we include my (adult) daughter, whom was helping plan the wedding, despite living in the US, and Marilyn did that - via emails and during the brief meeting before the wedding - taking her input, to help with the 'personal stories' aspect of the planning. Even when the skies opened up and the rain came down, Marilyn incorporated that, into our ceremony to take the pressure off and really make the day special..... Thank you Marilyn! Love Elga & Eriks xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Jessica & Matt Wedding at Fig Tree Midginbil Hill Midginbil Northern NSW
A massive thank you to Marilyn for helping our special day and for all the planning leading up to our big day, an amazing experience! We were not looking for a traditional wedding, but something that really represented us, the journey we have been on so far as a couple and the life we will live together. Marilyn gave us many different options, advice and variations of things to include in our ceremony based on the idea we presented to her for our wedding.  We had a beautiful location set already and with Marilyn's help we put together a beautiful ceremony that celebrated us perfectly.  The ceremony could not have gone smoother and despite having to navigate her way half way up a mountain on a bumpy dirt road, Marilyn was perfectly prepared and ready to go when we arrived which made the day flow very smoothly and took away any nerves we were feeling, especially guiding us through the ceremony when the feelings and emotions were flowing!  Marilyn's assistance and advice through the planning process was also hugely helpful with many beneficial planning tips and important reminders along the way, especially the reminder to enjoy the process and not sweat the small stuff too much!  Thanks for being a part of our amazing day and weekend Marilyn, we hope many more couples get to experience what we did with you alongside. Love Matt & Jess xoxoxo

I n short, Caroline and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marilyn. She made our special day, truly special and she will do the same for you. From the outset, she took the time to listen to our story and she gave us advice every step of the way – her experience and her endless resources were fantastic and we quickly learned there is no such thing as a “standard” wedding. It is about your day, your ideas and your love for each other. Marilyn really understands that too and she helped us create the perfect ceremony. We wanted to bring in some family moments, celebrate my Scottish roots and make sure that our Dalmatian, Dave, was part of the ceremony – no problems at all for Marilyn. Nothing was ever rushed and she was available on the phone or by email any time we wanted. On the day itself, she was there to calm the nerves beforehand and the whole ceremony was a joy – unrushed and truly memorable. Thank you Marilyn – it really was the best day of our lives.

We had our wedding at Jellyfish restaurant which was a very small, intimate venue that suited exactly what we were after and Marilyn knew the direction we were going for and we were so thrilled and thankful for the fantastic support that she provided for us under such short notice due to unfortunate circumstances. Every step of the way Marilyn was there for us and was so caring and understanding under the pressure that we were all under. From so many years of experience in the industry Marilyn has every trick in the book! I didn't cry after I followed her advice on how to manage my emotions IT WAS AMAZING!  We will never forget what you have done for us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We would Definitely Recommend Marilyn for a Handfasting Wedding whether Medieval, Secular or Pagan. I also think she would be a great option for a more traditional wedding as she really cared about what we wanted for the day. Just the other day we were watching the recording of our wedding ceremony and were struck by how wonderful we felt watching. This was, in no small part, because of Marilyn's work as celebrant. We wanted a medieval wedding with a Norse theme and a Handfasting and you could almost hear flood gates of Marilyn’s creativity opening. We really felt that Marilyn was excited by our wedding, and helped us make it a day that we loved with all her hard work and hours of research. Marilyn was so friendly and approachable she made us both feel very comfortable and embraced what we wanted for our day. She was someone we felt happy to have bringing together our families on the day! Thanks again for all your help! Lucy & John x

Hi Marilyn, James and I would like to thank you very much for making our wedding day so special. Right from the start you made the process very easy and with your guidance helped us create a ceremony that was very special and unique to the both of us. Thank you also for tips on the smaller points of planning that without your help, we would never have thought of. You have a natural ability to put people at ease, which was so very much appreciated on the day! We were told not to aim for ‘perfect’ for our wedding day, instead aim for the best it could be.  James and I have talked about every aspect of our day, and for us, it was perfect – we couldn't have asked for anything else, or anything better. Thank you again for the memories and helping make our day perfect! Love Jennifer and James xoxo

We both HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARILYN to be a part of your big day, most especially if you're uncomfortable or confused about how to approach such an exciting new step in your life. When we discovered Marilyn's website, we definitely felt a sense of assurance that Marilyn was not only passionate about her job, but approachable too. My partner and I were obviously fretting to plan such a big event in a short period of time, but Marilyn was incredibly helpful and understanding and responded to our concerns promptly. In the end, the wedding which included a beautiful American Indian Handfasting was definitely a great success. We felt comfortable to be ourselves on such a stressful day and we are incredibly grateful to have had such a caring celebrant to help us accomplish so much. Thank you again for everything Marilyn!

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayLove Letter from Karren & Brian Handfasting Commitment Len Wort Park Labrador Gold Coast
If you are reading this then there is a strong likelihood that you are either planning to get married on the Gold Coast, or are assisting the happy couple to gather information regarding the services of a wedding celebrant on the Gold Coast. And if you are anything like my beautiful partner Karren and I, when it comes to making that choice, then several things will be on your mind. Firstly, you will be looking for someone with whom you both “just click”. This is your big day and rapport is everything. And if you are a pragmatist, then you may also be weighing up the costs of the service. This in turn may prompt you to consider “just what are we getting for our money on our big day”? These are all very sensible questions...at least they were for us. Karren and I are very happy to share with you what we got when we made the decision to engage the services of Marilyn. If you are looking for a STRESS FREE EXPERIENCE WITH A WARM AND DELIGHTFUL CELEBRANT for your wedding on the Gold Coast WE CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARILYN VERSCHUURE AT MARRY ME MARILYN. Marilyn provided a seamless experience, both on the day and of equal importance, in the rehearsal. Marilyn is a consummate professional, but not in a stuffy or bossy way which the word “professional” sometimes makes people think of. Marilyn made us feel at ease and drew on her years of experience to anticipate our needs and provide all the options and solutions we requested. Marilyn’s resources regarding options for “vows” and the order of the ceremony are comprehensive and this also helped us feel calm and excited rather than alone and confused in the process. We also appreciated the little touches which Marilyn provided, right down to our staging during the ceremony so that the photographers had access to the best shots of us as a couple. Yours Faithfully Brian Clark & Karren Kohnke x

From the moment we researched and then met Marilyn in person we knew we had made the right choice for our special day. The CEREMONY WAS PERFECT on the day and she also took time to dress to blend in with our colour scheme. She looked gorgeous! Marilyn’s words and our handfasting ceremony that incorporated our wedding party and family members will always be a cherished moment. Nothing was left up in the air, and we experienced the best day of our partnership. We couldn’t be happier to recommend her for any ceremony you may want to choose as Marilyn will believe in you! We were initially concerned that as we were a same sex couple that our decision to hold a Big Gay Wedding Day wouldn’t be met with as much enthusiasm as we felt towards it. We were wrong! Marilyn was amazing beyond words. She quickly explained that Queensland had recently passed a legal Civil Partnership option for couples like us that either couldn't legally marry, or for those that chose this option instead of marriage. We were so happy to find out that we would have some form of legal document to sign on the day that legitimised our union. Marilyn also helped us heaps with listening to and understanding what our families would like as far as participation on the day. Thank you Marilyn! Cheers, Kim Harman & Lauren Ely xxx

Marry Me Marilyn Handfasting Wedding CelebrantOften the ritual of 'Handfasting' is performed, whereby the couple's hands are bound by a natural woven thread, fibre or cloth and the binding is slipped off with the knot still intact, signifying the fact they will always be 'bound together in marriage'. (Many couples who have a civil ceremony today, just incorporate Handfasting into their ceremony without any of the other traditions.)

Marilyn helped us to create an amazing, warm and relaxed wedding ceremony. Right from the start she understood our desire to have a spiritual and conscious ceremony and she contributed hours of research and planning to provide us with everything we wanted and more. Right from our initial meeting Marilyn presented herself as professional and confident and provided us with a world of ideas. All of our anxieties over the planning and preparation were put at ease by her presence. She facilitated all of our needs and wants (no matter how left field and abstract!) and created a unique, special and beautiful ceremony incorporating our beliefs and principles of universal energy and love. All who were there will be talking about the day for years to come. We both felt so comfortable in Marilyn's presence and as a result feel as though Marilyn has become more of a friend and not just a celebrant. She is a wonderfully friendly and sincere person that genuinely enjoys her work and interactions with people. We are so fortunate to have found her and would recommend her to anyone initiating a rite of passage or celebration. We look forward to seeing her again and having her included in future ceremonies within our family.  Thanks Marilyn! Much love and light Mary & Brendan x PS - we might need you for a naming day ceremony soon! That will be fun!

From the very first time we met Marilyn, we felt as if there was something magical happening. It may have only been via Skype, but we finally felt contented in having found the exact person we wanted - she ticked all our boxes. Marilyn had a warm, calm and confident presence and we soon arranged a meeting at her lovely home to start the ball rolling. She was professional, caring, respectful and open minded. She employed a very elegant technique of collaborative creation - helping to design our wedding ceremony with as much or little help from her as we wanted. There were no rights or wrongs, no pressure, only help and support. If we wanted to be in full control of our wedding, that was fine. If we wanted Marilyn to take full control, that was fine also. But in the end, we worked together almost symbiotically, bouncing ideas off each other, learning about each other and fine-tuning our ceremony. It was amazing how quickly Marilyn felt like an old friend. It was evident from the 'Love Story' that Marilyn had created for us, that she understood us very well. On our actual wedding day, it was raining at first, but almost miraculously the clouds parted and all became calm over the water just as our ceremony was about to start. Our ceremony flowed beautifully and Marilyn took us and everyone present on a wonderful journey. At times we laughed, at times we cried, it had the full gamut of emotions. We had the most amazing afternoon and were able to get many incredible photos, just before a storm rolled through during the reception. Thanks Marilyn, you helped to make our wedding day an unforgettable day! Love, Michael and Katrina Hague xox

THE CEREMONY was the PERFECT HANDFASTING that we didn't even know we wanted for our day! It was simple, elegant and the first time we read it together we could not believe how PERFECT she got it. Both sides of THE FAMILY WERE IN TEARS and everyone could not believe HOW BEAUTIFUL THE CEREMONY WAS. Marilyn made the whole thing so simple and easy and I thought my husband and I would be fretting over the ceremony but she just knew what to do to help create one of the best days in our lives. We are so glad we put our trust in her and found her. The first time I talked to Marilyn she almost seemed to know exactly what I wanted for the pagan aspects while still making sure my husband got what he wanted and combining to all beautifully. Daniel and I were kind of clueless about the whole ceremony part of our wedding, we had no idea what we were doing till a friend recommended Marilyn to us and thanks gods she did! The day would not have been the same without that beautiful ceremony she created for us. I would recommend her again and again as well as plan on going to her for future milestones down the track.  We really can't thank her enough for all that she did. Marilyn got the ceremony perfect and I cannot believe our luck in being able to have her there! Love Kendall & Daniel xo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Fatima and Gordon's Wedding at Point Cartwright Sunshine Coast South East
We met Marilyn by serendipity we progressed through the legals and just ‘the overall’ of how a Marriage Ceremony falls into place.  Marilyn helped us every step of the way with the vision Gordon and I had for the Wedding – especially with the writing of the Ceremony, which was extremely important to us.  Nothing was ever too much for her and she continually offered numerous suggestions and resources – and always with a laugh in her voice.  Gordon and I were married by Marilyn on 20th June at Point Cartwright Beach.  Yes, the rain that threatened all week stayed away whilst all our guests assembled on the beach, but the moment the Ceremony started, it poured! Fortunately, everyone had umbrellas and we felt most blessed by the rain, but from start to finish, Marilyn held us together by her professionalism, strength and grace. In short, I would recommend Marilyn to ANYBODY wanting someone as gracious and as professional as Marilyn.  If you want someone ‘REAL’ and someone who truly gives their ALL, Marilyn is absolutely ONE CELEBRANT IN A MILLION! With Gratitude Marilyn! Fatima & Gordon xox

Marilyn, you were fantastic. Your warm and fun approach to planning our special day was so appreciated and it came off beautifully. When we first met you we knew that you were right for us. We particularly loved that you continued to reinforce the important things so nothing was missed or forgotten. It is clear that you have performed many weddings of all types as you were able to visualise our wishes and guide us the whole way without a hitch. We couldn't recommend you highly enough to anyone planning to get hitched and welcome anyone to contact us for a more personal testimonial. Love Eryn & Andrew xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Ami & Tony Handfasting Wedding Songbirds Rainforest Retreat Mt Tamborine
Firstly Marilyn, Thank you Thank you Thank you, you truly are an extremely special lady - one in which we are so grateful to have had as our celebrant uniting us as Husband & Wife. Marilyn you are a beautiful, genuine compassionate soul - a "real" person & those that are united by you are truly blessed. Since our wedding we have received so many comments on how unique & beautiful our ceremony was - many of our guests said they were captivated from beginning to end & overwhelmed at how emotionally engaging the words within the ceremony were. Your integrity & gracefulness demonstrated from the preparation to the delivery of our ceremony was amazing & for this we are truly grateful. You truly were such an integral part of our union & we feel blessed to have had you - a true angel to marry us on that beautiful spring day in the rainforest. The Seven Chakra Handfasting you prepared for us was magical - again you captured in words the essence of our love for each other & for this we thank you. Tony & I would recommend you to any couple that is looking for a celebrant that will nurture & bring to life the essence of their love for one another - so on that special day when you say "I Do" to your lover, to your best friend, you have a ceremony filled with the all the words that your hearts wanted to say, delivered in a graceful manner by a soul who believes in your union as much as you do!!!! When we were looking for a celebrant I scoured the magazines & websites looking for that "friendly face" that we would call & say "Please marry us" - to my surprise it didn’t take long to find you & know that you were the one - you were the first celebrant I called & when you picked up the phone - let's just say Marilyn - you had us at "Hello"!!! At our first meeting with you made us feel at ease you were kind and endearing & really listened to us & our story - you took the time to get to know us. Your support & enthusiasm that was shown when we wanted to be "different" - & avoid many of the classic wedding ceremony traditions, made us feel comfortable & excited to explore other ceremony ideas - which led to us, with your help creating the perfect ceremony that reflected who we are - it captured our values as individuals & as a couple, allowing us to share the love & respect we have for each other with our friends & family in our own style. Thanks so much Marilyn, Love & Light Always Tony & Ami xoxo

I n short, Caroline and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Marilyn. She made our special day, truly special and she will do the same for you. From the outset, she took the time to listen to our story and she gave us advice every step of the way – her experience and her endless resources were fantastic and we quickly learned there is no such thing as a “standard” wedding. It is about your day, your ideas and your love for each other. Marilyn really understands that too and she helped us create the perfect ceremony. We wanted to bring in some family moments, celebrate my Scottish roots and make sure that our Dalmatian, Dave, was part of the ceremony – no problems at all for Marilyn. Nothing was ever rushed and she was available on the phone or by email any time we wanted. On the day itself, she was there to calm the nerves beforehand and the whole ceremony was a joy – unrushed and truly memorable. Thank you Marilyn – it really was the best day of our lives.

Hi Marilyn, First of all - what an amazing day! We couldn't have asked for anything better. THE CEREMONY WAS BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING AND TOTALLY US. We are sorry we didn't have time to really thank you on the day! As you would know, it was very overwhelming and there were so many people to see/things to do all at the same time. Ahhh! Thank you so much for everything - you've taught and prepared us so well for the big day and continued to help us all the way until the end. EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME AND SAID YOU WERE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! The ceremony was more than we could have imagined or asked for and was led by the best celebrant out there. Thank you for getting to know us these past few months and for delivering such a memorable ceremony.  All our love, May and Stephane xoxo

“Sean and I chose Marilyn to be our celebrant because we liked the fact she was spiritual and ‘real’. We didn’t want the traditional, standard ceremony and we couldn’t have been happier with what Marilyn created for us. Not only did we have a personal introduction ‘love story’, but Marilyn also created a beautiful original Handfasting ceremony, which was something unique and special. Her assistance throughout the whole process, especially when we were so busy, was extremely helpful and we greatly appreciate it. Also, the enormous volume of material she has available for you to use is invaluable. Everyone can find something to suit their personality. We highly recommend Marilyn’s services to anyone who wants a personalised, professional and romantic ceremony. Thank you Marilyn, Gemma & Sean xoxo

Thank you Marilyn for an Unforgettable Wedding Ceremony!  Our Wedding Day was Amazing and the Ceremony was Warm, Funny and Relaxed. It was exactly what we wanted it to be and went off without a hitch! We decided to go with a Celtic influenced Handfasting Ceremony as well as a Ring Warming Ceremony which was lovely!  It was very 'us' and the guests kept reiterating this to us long after the wedding! Marilyn was the first celebrant Tim and I had met and decided after the first meeting she would be perfect for our wedding day. Marilyn seemed to understand our values well, as we wanted a more 'spiritual' based ceremony rather than a religious one. Marilyn was always very organized, friendly and professional, as well as being a perfectionist. She ensures no stone is left unturned during the planning process and even brought to our attention details we had not recognised as being important, but that we couldn’t have done without on the day. Marilyn was always in frequent contact with us and ensured the lines of communication were kept open from start to finish. Thank you Marilyn! Belinda & Tim - 19th November 2011 Thank You to Naomi V Photography for the beautiful photos of Belinda & Tim on my website.

Dear Marilyn, you delivered our wedding ceremony with such SINCERE LOVE, BEAUTIFUL ENERGY, ENTHUSIASM and of course a little HUMOUR. We have had so many people compliment you on such a moving ceremony. What can I say… no words can really describe how much we appreciated all your help, support and care in  the preparation of our wedding, and of the actual wedding day. When we first met at the wedding expo last year, Chantelle and I knew we found the perfect Marriage Celebrant for the day, something  just clicked between us. When we got together for the rehearsal, I left your place relaxed and at ease, knowing you had if all under control. I have referred you onto my best friends daughter. You are a beautiful person, and I sincerely thank you for helping our wedding be a magical day for the us and everyone who was there!  Again, THANK YOU so very, very much.  With warm regards Chantelle & Ashley xoxo

Marry Me Marilyn Handfasting Wedding CelebrantLove Letter Kendall & Daniel Handfasting BrisbaneTHE CEREMONY was the PERFECT HANDFASTING that we didn't even know we wanted for our day! It was simple, elegant and the first time we read it together we could not believe how PERFECT she got it. Both sides of THE FAMILY WERE IN TEARS and everyone could not believe HOW BEAUTIFUL THE CEREMONY WAS. Marilyn made the whole thing so simple and easy and I thought my husband and I would be fretting over the ceremony but she just knew what to do to help create one of the best days in our lives. We are so glad we put our trust in her and found her. The first time I talked to Marilyn she almost seemed to know exactly what I wanted for the pagan aspects while still making sure my husband got what he wanted and combining to all beautifully. Daniel and I were kind of clueless about the whole ceremony part of our wedding, we had no idea what we were doing till a friend recommended Marilyn to us and thanks gods she did! The day would not have been the same without that beautiful ceremony she created for us. I would recommend her again and again as well as plan on going to her for future milestones down the track.  We really can't thank her enough for all that she did. Marilyn got the ceremony perfect and I cannot believe our luck in being able to have her there! Love Kendall & Daniel xoxoxo

Marilyn, thank you so much for a unique ceremony. When we met with you, you welcomed us with a hug and delicious coffee and biscuits. We knew then that we had made a good choice, especially as you were marrying our friends that following weekend. Your input and ideas were exceptional and we were so glad we settled on the hand fasting ritual. Everyone said it was such a lovely idea and they all really enjoyed the ceremony. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends who tie the knot in the future. Thanks again for making our day so special. Kate and Richard.

Handfasting is often conducted in a circle as it has no beginning and no end, it is eternal.The circle is a universal emblem of wholeness and completion. It symbolises continuity, eternity, completion and speechlessness. As it represents what is complete and unbroken, it also stands for everlasting love. The circle is often aligned with the cardinal points of the compass -north, south, east and west.

Everyone loved the love story and we have had quite a few people commend how good you were. You really did make the ceremony feel special and all about us.

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Angela & David Wedding Palm Beach Gold Coast
We would definitely recommend Marilyn as a celebrant to anyone wanting a creative ceremony full of fun, love and romance. David and I were married on Palm Beach in November. Marilyn helped us through the whole process. She had so many great ideas for our beach wedding ceremony that made it totally unique and personal. We were able to contact Marilyn at any time while writing our vows and she provided a wonderful 'How to Write Your Vows' document in her online resources so we could create the most heartfelt vows which redueced quite a few family members to tears. She was so patient with any questions we had and also had great advice. Marilyn is a bubbly, friendly, down to earth & inspiring person who makes planning your wedding ceremony a breeze and incredibly special. Thank you Marilyn for a fantastic day we will never forget. Love Angela & David x

Marilyn conducted our 25th anniversary marriage renewal. I wanted it to be a surprise for my wife and I communicated with Marilyn for well over three weeks. Nothing was too much trouble and even a time change the day before was not a problem. On the day, my wife was shocked at what was happening especially when the video cameras came out, but Marilyn spoke with her and she was soon holding my hands. The ceremony was beautiful, the vows great and the life story was beautifully told. Marilyn made sure that our kids were involved in the ceremony and that was really touching for both my wife and I. Marilyn is simply a lovely lady that will do everything possible to make sure your celebration is memorable, enjoyable and a time that you will hold in your hearts for all time. It was certainly the case for my wife and I. Regards John Edwards
