Jacinta Kelly Handfasting Wedding at Aloha Waters with Marry Me Marilyn

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 :)

We are so happy and grateful that we decided to have Marry Me Marilyn conduct our ceremony. Marilyn has such a unique ability to tell a story and make the ceremony even more magical then you could expect. She was so friendly, personable and helped us immensely as we were organizing our ceremony from interstate. When we finally met her only a few days before our wedding she went out of her way to calm our nerves going over everything for hours at her own home. The feedback from our guests was all so positive AND THEY LOVED HER STORYTELLING ABILITY AND SOME OF THE OTHER UNIQUE ELEMENTS she added to our ceremony. We would certainly recommend Marilyn to anyone getting married. Thanks again Marilyn! Love Chantelle & Jonathan xoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Banthip & Sai from Adelaide married at The Lakeside Hut Gold Coast Botanic Gardens Benowa with Marry Me Marilyn
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. Thank to Marilyn also for helping Banthip with her vows as well 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 xoxox

Celebrant Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Philadelphia & Jack Wedding Charles Darwin Catamaran Darwin Harbour Darwin
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

Melene & Khaled's Main Beach Wedding with Marry Me Marilyn

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Civil Marriage Celebrant Queensland AustraliaMelene from Canberra & Khaled from Jordan (Bahrain) planned a chic beach wedding on a platform overlooking Main Beach decorated beautifully by Jane from Down the Aisle with Style. The weather was fine all day until Melene walked down the aisle then it started to rain. Luckily I had 6 of my special golf umbrellas with vents ready to put over the wedding party and after a few minutes the rain stopped. To honour Melene's Greek heritage we incorporated a Greek Ring exchange and a specially written Stefana the Greek Wedding Crowns Ceremony which was performed by Bestman Koumbaro Stacy & Maid Of Honour Koumbara Polly. In a traditional Greek wedding ceremony the bride and groom are crowned with Stefana. The Stefana are joined by a ribbon which symbolizes the unity of the couple and the joining of two souls. The crowns are prepared on a silver platter lying on a bed of rice and sugared almonds. Melene and Khaled looked so happy together walking around the table 3 times showered with rice for luck and fertility.

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Tanya & Daniel from Western Australia held their Wedding at The Towers of the Chevron Renaissance Surfers Paradise Gold Coast
Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for making our special day everything we ever wanted and more. After 14 years together and two children later, we planned a holiday to the Gold Coast and decided that getting married was a good idea. We decided to do it our way and elope – this way it would be a care free event, without the worry of seating arrangements, who to invite, menu’s etc etc. Marilyn made our wedding day exactly what we were after, care free, fun, memorable and relaxed. After months of emailing and numerous phone calls back and forth with Marilyn we knew she would make our day absolutely perfect and upon meeting her on the morning of the ceremony, finally with face to face contact, we were certain this would be everything we were dreaming of and that Marilyn was the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. Marilyn, you possess a beautiful nature and treat everyone and every occasion with the utmost respect, professionalism and enthusiasm and the pride and care you take in your work, both prior to, during and after the ceremony, is to be admired, honoured and respected. Thank you so very much, Daniel & Tanya Luke.

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Rebecca & Patrick North QLD Wedding Imagine Cruises Marina Mirage Main Beach
Dear Marilyn, First of all I would like to thank you for such a wonderful day! It was everything Pat and I desired for our special day.  Your warmth and wonderful sense of humor was exactly what we were wanting in a celebrant. You put so in so much effort and were so motivated to give us the perfect wedding ceremony. You had incredible attention to detail that even most couples would miss, you never missed a beat throughout the whole planning time and the rehearsal and ceremony itself. The outlay of the ceremony and the rehearsal were designed and personalised especially for us that I think is most important. The way you made such an effort with our children to make them feel comfortable and an integral part of our wedding was outstanding. Given that we live in Far North Queensland, the distance wasn’t a drama for you as you work with so many interstate and overseas couples. Pat and I could see from the moment we contacted you, that you would make every couple feel that their wedding is special and not just another work day for you. Thank you again for sharing our day with us Patrick & Rebecca D’Arcy Photos Courtesy of VM Photography

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  Photos Corne & Lara Photography

Hi Marilyn, Don and I wanted to write to you to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the WONDERFUL WORK you put into our wedding on the 7/7/17. You made our ceremony exactly what we wanted. We have had so many comments on HOW AMAZING OUR WEDDING WAS and how much love was put into our vows. From the tears from Don when he saw me walk in, to the laughter from our humorous promises we made to each other. The ceremony set the scene for the rest of the day and night. We and all our guests had the most awesome day. We wish we could do it all again. You truly are a FANTASTIC CELEBRANT and PERSON that we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone that is looking at getting married to consider you for their ceremony.

Marilyn, thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so perfect!  From the outset you were friendly, organised, enthusiastic and most importantly for us, keen to work with us to achieve what we wanted on the day.  Your comprehensive web based resources allowed us to consider the endless options and guided us to create our own unique event. You were endlessly adaptable - not just with organising a wedding from interstate, but with multiple changes to the ceremony, and of course, the very last minute changes to the location due to rain!  It actually was quite fun doing something totally different to what we had planned, without trying to fulfil what our minds might have imagined. Despite things not going to plan with the weather, the ceremony was spontaneously perfect and remained truly heartfelt for us.  We're certain your calmness despite the changes helped so many of our guests also feel and comment on the sincerity of the event.  Your flexibility, positivity and personal approach allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment of the day - we are ever grateful and would definitely recommend your services to anyone! Thank you again for dealing with our wedding so amazingly! Thank you, Louise and Michael xox

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Wedding Ray & Suzanne from Canberra ACT Broadbeach Surf Club Gold Coast
Hello Marilyn, It is with pleasure that we do this little testimonial for you. Even though we both live in Canberra we decided on the Gold Coast as our wedding venue. After surfing the web we found Marilyn’s website and there was just something about the site that made the decision for us pretty easy. What a great choice we made. Marilyn made us feel welcome and comfortable from the first time we met in her home. Nothing was too much trouble for her and all the arrangements were simple and straight forward. At least that is the way Marilyn made it feel. Most of our interaction from then on was over the phone or via email right up until our rehearsal for our special day, but again nothing was too much trouble. On our wedding day Marilyn even made sure she knew what colours the girls in our wedding party were wearing so that she made sure she was dressed to match. It is the little things that count. Even though the weather was not our best friend on the day, Marilyn took it all in her stride and never let it affect her professional attitude. The plus side was the rain just before the ceremony made us move from the beach to inside the surf club. Our guests thought this was a much better option as everyone was able to hear and see what was going on the whole time. Given our wedding was the second time for both of us the memory of this day will last forever. We especially loved the sand ceremony where our two blended families were able to create a special long lasting bond. Marilyn joined in the fun of our wedding vows, even though they were a little different. We are sure if you ask Marilyn she may even let you see them. Thank you again Marilyn for making our day that little bit extra special. We think everyone should ask her to ‘Marry Me Marilyn’. Cheers Ray and Suzanne

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"

Marilyn, We wanted to take the time out to thank you for all your efforts in making our wedding day such an awesome one :) It would not have been possible without your input and we can't express how much we appreciated your tolerance of our incredibly busy lives and disorganization leading up to the big day. From our very first discussions via Skype we were completely at ease putting ourselves in your hands despite us being a couple thousand kilometers away.
I never imagined it would be as pain free as it was dealing remotely as we did. We realize we were probably one of the more traditional couples with a fairly straightforward approach but it felt totally unique to us and that is in large part thanks to you. We found you wonderfully personable, incredibly genuine and in possession of a clear passion for making special days even more special. We would whole heartedly recommend your services to anyone & everyone getting married as our experience was just fantastic! Kind Regards Dene & Nastaran xoxox

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Kirsty & Neil from Western Australia Wedding Ceremony with Wine Ceremony at the Botanic Gardens in Benowa on the Gold Coast.
We were engaged for a year before deciding we would love to get married on 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!

Dear Marilyn, We waited so long for our special day to finally come and when it did we couldn’t have been luckier. Everything went according to plan, even the weather behaved for us, it was perfect! We are so grateful to have had you as our marriage celebrant. You helped make our day so magical and memorable! The ceremony was completely tailored to us and our family. Your suggestions for including our children in our ceremony, with the sand ceremony and exchange of gifts were just fantastic, something I’m not sure we would have thought of ourselves. You have such an amazing energy, which helped to ease our nerves and allowed us to embrace the moment. I know that all of our family and friends were so impressed with your services, not just us! If we are ever to renew our vows we know exactly who to go to. I can assure you that we will be recommending your expertise to all our friends and family so that they too can have a perfect wedding day! Much love, Cassia and Cameron xoxoxo

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Alyona & Alexandre from Victoria 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

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Peter & Kristy from Adelaide had their wedding at Seaworld Resort Main Beach on the Northern Gold Coast Queensland
We are from Adelaide and decided to get married in the most beautiful part of Australia......The Gold Coast! Planning just about every part of our wedding was done via the internet & email. I searched the internet for a celebrant, I made a few enquiries and found them to be either too pushy or too boring and not quite what we were looking for. Then I came across Marilyn's website, it was full of so many happy couples who all spoke about how Marilyn helped them create the perfect ceremony. Marilyn's Website described the many different types of ceremonies you could choose from and had such beautiful photo's of all the blissfully happy Brides and Grooms, I was very drawn to this particular website so I made an enquiry. The very next day I received a phone call from this wonderful vibrant lady, who I felt a connection to almost immediately and after spending 1 hour on the phone, I hung up with happy tears in my eyes from all the beautiful stories she was telling me and I knew that she was the one to marry us. Marilyn helped us to create the most beautiful ceremony, which was very unique and perfect for us.....non traditional. During the ceremony Marilyn told our beautiful love story, and my husband also made vows to my 11yr old son.  There was not a dry eye in the house. Marilyn's online resource pack was fantastic,  it gave us some great ideas that helped us write our vows. We felt so at ease and comfortable with Marilyn, she was always just a phone call away. Marilyn helped to make our wedding day PERFECT, and we cannot thank her enough. Guess who will be doing a baby naming ceremony ;-) Love Kirsty & Peter xoxo

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

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 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

“Hi Marilyn, Well, it’s all over and wow it went quick!! 
The most amazing thing I have seen is everyone smiling or laughing in all the photos, all our friends and family have commented on how wonderful the ceremony was and how much fun it was, the love story, the surprise sub ceremony, ring warming, basically everything an average wedding is not.  Anyhoo, I will touch base when I get back from Melbourne for a chat, just wanted again to say thanks again, everything went too quick and I didn’t get to catch up with you two as much as planned but thanks again and hope you had as much fun as we did…Cheers, Kat & Coops”

It certainly was a wedding with the WOW factor! 10/10/10, we were married by Marilyn at the Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers Paradise. It was a Blast! When we started looking around for Celebrants, her website stood out by far. We found it had all the information, comments, videos and photos of her other weddings and it was just what we were looking for. A great day with a lot of fun and most of all the ability to personalise the entire ceremony. Marilyn's' ability to relate to us and help us to tailor our wedding to suit our life and relationship was wonderful. We travelled from Inverell NSW to her home for meetings, the whole event was simply great. All our guests (65) commented on how great Marilyn was and that it was not a 'Typical / Boring' wedding, rather we had lots of her flair and enthusiasm to bring the day to life. Thanks again Marilyn, see you for the anniversaries.

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

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

Using a civil marriage celebrant for your ceremony allows you the freedom to choose exactly where you want to be married the choices are endless. You can marry on a glorious Gold Coast beach or in the amazing hinterland rainforest landscape, quaint chapels, mountain and sea side restaurants with panoramic and ocean views, exquisite sub-tropical gardens and up market reception facilities. If you are the adventurous kind you can jump out of a plane, go up in a hot air balloon or scuba dive if that is your passion.

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

"We had no idea of what had to be done for a wedding so the emails and phone calls from Marilyn were really helpful as we were planning long distance from Darwin. When we met Marilyn face to face it was fantastic, it really helped to calm our nerves. It was really nice to meet Marilyn. She gave us a Wedding Resource Pack and heaps of choices in her online resources that we were happy with. The ceremony was perfect and we felt really comfortable with Marilyn. The length of the ceremony was perfect and the ceremony booklets she made for us were gorgeous, we loved them! The wedding fees were excellent and affordable. Ben and I would like to thank Marilyn for the best ceremony ever!

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Melissa & Leslie Bilinga Surf Lifesaving Club Bilinga Gold Coast
A SPECIAL THANK YOU! We chose Marilyn as our celebrant after briefly looking on the internet for a suitable person to marry us on 3rd September 2010.  Our choice to go with her was initially based on her website, she seemed lovely even from her photos and we liked that she offered different types of ceremonies including sand ceremonies, which we didn't really know anything about but liked the idea of. We had a rough idea of what we wanted and we certainly didn't want a "traditional" wedding, we wanted to have vows which reflected our personalities and desires and to leave the guests inspired (not bored! Like so many weddings can leave you feeling). We met with Marilyn at her home, with our children after a morning at the beach and she was so welcoming to all of us, she even let our children have a swim in her pool so we could get along with business and they could have fun!!  We discussed what we wanted, Marilyn told us what she offered and gave us access to her website which we found to be extremely helpful with an abundance of resources and links which we used entirely to plan our ceremony.  Marilyn was always there to help and to answer questions when we got confused or stressed!  We found her to be professional, down to earth, very experienced and above all a beautiful person who obviously gets a lot of pleasure from her work. 
The ceremony was perfect, all thanks to Marilyn, and the guests were so impressed with the sand ceremony and the fact that we included our two boys aged 4 and 9 which we originally hadn't thought was really possible beyond the fact that one was the ring bearer and the other was a groomsman!  Marilyn suggested ideas and the resources helped to tie everything together so that we were uniting not only as a couple but as a family unit. It was a beautiful, unforgettable and absolutely perfect ceremony, thank you so so so very much Marilyn, without you it would have been virtually impossible and I know it would not have been any where near as memorable for us and our guests! With very kind regards, The Overtons xoxoxo

Good Morning Marilyn, Well Marilyn where do I begin....words cannot express how we feel about the wedding. You made our wedding absolutely wonderful, actually wonderful isn't the word, it was much much more than that. Everyone was so touched with the wording, the entire ceremony.  I felt like I didn't get to say a proper good bye and thank you as we were all caught up with the photo's. From the bottom of our hearts Marilyn, thank you for being who you are.  For making our wedding day something not just Ronald and I will treasure forever, but for our family and friends to talk about for a long time. I look back and my heart drops I am in such awe of my Wedding day, I feel like my wedding day was the best in the world. You will be remembered in our hearts forever and I will always mention your name when friends and family are searching for that special person to unite them in marriage. We will always think of you when we think of our wedding day. All our love and thanks to you Marilyn and Marcel, Forever thinking of you, Mr & Mrs Ronald Betham :-)

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Candy & Joe Marina Mirage Main Beach Gold Coast Helicopter Adventure Wedding 5000' Up at 200KMPH
Dear Marilyn, Thank you for weaving your magic on our special day.  We went through many websites until we came across yours and were captivated initially by your spiritual style of ceremony and the fact you were a resource of information and suitable locations. We wanted a boutique wedding but something that was different and memorable. When we came up with the idea of getting married in a Helicopter, you were as excited as we were – why not get married 5000 feet over Main Beach at 200KMPH on a glorious Gold Coast Day! Sounded crazy at the time but you took control and eliminated so much pressure for us. On the day you united Candy and myself with your beautiful words. The icing on the cake was making my son Michael part of the ceremony and having special vows that united the three of us all as one. For anyone that is looking for a special person that will be as passionate about their day as you are, it is impossible to go past you. Thank you Sincerely for your passion and inspiration. Candy and Joe XXX

Living in Melbourne and getting married in Queensland had potential challenges but finding Marilyn helped smooth the way. Marilyn made us feel relaxed and reassured that our day would be perfect. She offered ideas of locations for our special day, helped us with our ceremony and provided support throughout the planning and especially on our wedding day. We had regular contact with her via Skype or email; she was there whenever we needed her. Our wedding included the sand ceremony as we blended our two families; this was a special part of the wedding. When we finally met Marilyn it was like meeting an old friend. Our wedding was awesome and Marilyn made everyone feel relaxed. Our guests commented that is was one of the best weddings they had been to and they felt a part of the ceremony too. We would recommend Marilyn to everyone. Love Tiana & Andrew xoxoxo

Thank you Marilyn for helping us organise our special day.

On the day the weather was very unpredictable and we are so glad we had a celebrant like Marilyn who was flexible with our choices and worked with us to have the day we really wanted. It all worked out well in the end and we couldn’t be happier with the service Marilyn gave us. Thanks Bill & Tanya McLean xoxo

Thank you so much for making our day that much more special, you made it so fun and enjoyable and i will be forever grateful that you waited for my family to be there before we got started. You made planning our wedding so much more easier than I could ever think possible especially as it was held in Surfers Paradise and we are from Perth. You took into account we wanted a nice simple registry type wedding and added that special bit of humour into it making it so much more personal for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Anyone reading my review I highly recommend that you choose Marilyn as your celebrant, she is very organised, very helpful and makes you feel so at ease and confident that everything will go beautifully, she has a way with words that you just can’t help but have a big smile or goofy grin from ear to ear on you face throughout the ceremony. Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mal and Tuay Price x
