Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Alyona & Alexandre Elopement at the Wedding Villa Rustica Brooklet Byron Bay Hinterland
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

Marilyn thank you so much for making our day so special! From the moment we spoke on the phone, I knew already I was so comfortable with you and I could already sense that you have a genuine passion and professionalism about what you do. We had wanted a really simple and intimate beach ceremony without any fuss, organised from interstate - you went above and beyond our expectations with the time and effort you put in to transform this to such a beautiful, emotional and personal ceremony with your kind words and poems.  We were daunted by how complicated weddings could be however it thrilled us that you made the entire process so simple and guided us through every aspect from the vows to making us feel so comfortable on the big day. We would definitely recommend you to anyone who is getting married. All the best Marilyn! Paul & Karen

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Jacinta & Kelly from Tasmania married 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 Marry Me Marilyn, We would love to share our wonderful experience of our wedding with other couples getting married. It was the MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING CEREMONY EVER. Marilyn really understood our culture and that showed in the ceremony.  We had such a very special wedding day with you as our celebrant that we want other couples to choose you as their celebrant for their special day so they can have a great wedding too. The words you created for us were PERFECT IN EVERY WAY and you made everything so easy especially as our English is not so well yet.

Our wedding day was made so special with the help of Marilyn. When we first made contact with her she was so warm and friendly and helped us figure out the perfect ceremony to suit us. Our wedding was romantic and at the same time really intimate, relaxing and fun! Our ceremony included sharing wine together out of a goblet and the blessing of our hands an ancient Celtic tradition, which were both ideas that Marilyn came up with to make it that much more special for us! On the day Marilyn brought a Paua Shell to hold our rings and remind us of our New Zealand heritage. Thanks Marilyn you’re the best! Taryn and Joel x

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Kirsty & Neil Elopement Gold Coast Botanic Gardens Benowa
We were engaged for a year before deciding we would love to elope to the Gold Coast on a holiday we had booked from our home town of Perth. it was a bit nerve racking as it was only six weeks away and we were on the other side of the country, but  we knew within a minute of speaking with Marilyn that she would do everything she could to assist us in making our day wonderful. Marilyn explained everything that was required simply and assisted with location suggestions for our desired garden wedding which was very helpful for non-locals. We decided on the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Benowa which created the perfect atmosphere for our relaxed wedding. Being quite shy people, we really appreciate the effort Marilyn went to create the perfect ceremony that was meaningful to us and kept us relaxed and able to enjoy the whole experience. Marilyn, we will forever remember how you helped create the best day of our lives and the "Mark of the year" when you caught the falling goblet of red wine mid-air without spilling a drop! Love Neil & Kirsty Webster. Photos Courtesy John Bortolin Photography

Katy and Nick fromChristchurch  New Zealand were married on Burleigh Beach on the Gold Coast by Marry Me Marilyn

Marry Me Marilyn Love Letter Katy & Nick Haines Christchurch, New Zealand were married on Burleigh Beach Gold Coast
Are you thinking about getting married on the Gold Coast and live overseas? if so...You must hire Marilyn!!!
My husband Nick and I can't tell you the amount of times we have told people, "hiring Marilyn as our celebrant from NZ was the best money we spent on our wedding...full stop!" By chance we stumbled across Marilyn on Google and never looked back.Trying to sort everything out from a different country was far more challenging than we expected. Thank God for the internet, our record of communication with Marilyn must read like a novel, but yet Marilyn never tired of our excuses for not getting back to her in time, was always patient, professional and diligent, and helped organise and remind us of very important things that we might otherwise have forgotten or overlooked. And finally....we arrived! After months of helpful emails at no extra expense, we met Marilyn who was of course the lovely lady just as much in person who had helped us through all the snags (no matter how hard you try they always happen) of our planning. The ceremony was PERFECT !!! Marilyn made some last minute spontaneous touches that proved her experience in such things, that just MADE the day. I can't help but think that Marilyn is just very intuitive and naturally gifted about knowing what makes the perfect day for different people. We of course highly recommend her to make your special day ....very special in a unique way, just for you. Take the hassle out of your wedding planning now, and talk to Marilyn...its the best wedding decision you will make. Katy and Nick Haines, Christchurch, NZ xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Martijn & Merit's Beach Wedding at Sheraton Mirage Resort Main Beach Gold Coast
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! Love Merit & Martijn xoxoxo

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Civil Marriage Celebrant Queensland AustraliaLove Letter Jennifer & James from Victoria married at John Laws Park Burleigh Heads Gold Coast
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

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Malinda & Darcey Mini Wedding Tallebudgera Valley Gold Coast
Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for everything you did to make our day so lovely. Everyone loved the ceremony! Our favourite response was "that was the first wedding I've been to that didn't leave me terrified of marriage" Ha! We were so happy with the way everything turned out. We loved how the ceremony moved from light and fun to deep and moving. We felt connected and present throughout the ceremony. The way you spoke and brought our story to life was perfect and we really enjoyed it. We've had so many comments from family and friends, letting us know how much they loved hearing our Love Story. People said it was relaxed, genuine and heartfelt and many said it was the best wedding they'd been to. The wedding was pulled together in such a short time. We also had the challenge of organising it from the USA. Being able to Skype with you and email you as much as we needed was fantastic and you always got back to us quickly and addressed all our concerns. You were respectful and accommodating with all our values and wishes for our wedding, allowing us the space to make it our own, whilst providing us with many resources and suggestions when we were stuck. The day was crazy! It poured with rain so we had to switch from the park to a nearby hall. Our families have told us that you were extremely helpful with the last minute set up,  letting them know the best way to organise the aisle and the circle for the ceremony. You also calmed us down when we arrived and allowed us space and time to ground and connect before we began. We would recommend you to anyone planning a wedding and couldn't be happier with the way our day turned out. Thank you so much Marilyn. Love Malinda and Darcey x

Marilyn, we appreciate all that you did for us to make our day unique and unforgettable, the ceremony was more than we could have ever wished for, you did such an amazing job! Our first meeting with Marilyn was like visiting an old friend; who knew our love story, who knew what we envisioned for our big day and knew how we liked our cups of tea. Marilyn understood us and was able to quickly see what kind of wedding ceremony we wanted and was enthusiastic to do what she could for us to make that vision a reality. Marilyn married us at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning. She was still her natural, vibrant self at 4:30am and created such a beautiful ambiance for our ceremony that the day really wouldn't have been the same without her. Thanks again, it really was the best day of our lives! Lots of love K&K x

Hi Marilyn, Just popping by to say a massive THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing wedding ceremony you performed for us on the 21st of October. As soon as I came across your website I knew I had found the celebrant for us! I also would like to mention that you were the ONLY celebrant that I emailed that day to call me back, which made a huge impression on our decision making. Your easy going attitude and nothings too hard nature really put us at ease. You were more than just a celebrant! Organising a wedding from Hobart certainly wasn't easy but you were kind enough to help me through a lot of the planning out of the kindness of your heart & I will be forever grateful for that! I keep re-reading through our ceremony 'script' & your beautiful words bring tears to my eyes! We would highly recommend Marilyn to anyone!! Thank you so so much for making our special day absolutely perfect! Mr & Mrs Arnol xxx
