Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Candice & Richard Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens Brookfield Brisbane
Marilyn, we were so thrilled with the ceremony, it was perfect beyond imagination.  You did a great job of making it heartfelt and I really loved the love story. "I cannot thank you for enough for the services you provided for our wedding day. It was so personal and so romantic and everyone agreed it was the most heartfelt ceremony they had ever been to. All this could not be possible without the personalised touch you brought to our ceremony along with the story of our love and relationship. You really are a stand out in this industry and went far above what we expected! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!” - Candice & Richard xoxo

Beautiful Marilyn, Where do we even start to thank you?! You are a very special person Full of Love, Laughter, Wisdom, Warmth and Care. From our very first phone call to you, right through the zillions of emails we sent back and forth and on the day of our wedding – we felt so lucky that you were our celebrant. Your professionalism and knowledge of the industry gave us a head start in the whole marriage process. Your endless resources made the task of co-creating a ceremony that much more easy and enjoyable. Your little tips like suggesting we start creating our ceremony months in advance so we could focus on the little things in the crazy lead up to the actual day were priceless. All brides – listen to Marilyn! She’s a pro! Thank you for listening to all of our input and creating the most beautiful, heartfelt and individualised ceremony we could ever have hoped for. It was perfect and very ‘us.’ So many guests came up to us afterwards asking about you and saying it was one of the most enjoyable ceremonies they had ever been to. You personalised it with our very own love story and celebrated our personalities and our relationship, you didn’t focus on all the traditional lines that you hear over and over again at weddings and it is so refreshing!! Thank you for your amazing skills at calming our nerves and for managing the crowd during the stressful time when the limo driver got lost, making the bride very late and the groom very, very anxious! We really can’t speak more highly of you as a person or as a celebrant. Thank you xo All our love, Sarah & Joseph

Dear Marilyn! We are so grateful that we found you! Words cannot express how lucky and grateful we are that we had you as our celebrant!  From the very beginning, many months before the ceremony you got us organised with all the paperwork and writing the ceremony! (Mostly planned by email using your resources while we were working in the Antarctic) it gave us such peace of mind! We loved working with you and after about 20 drafts we had the Perfect Personalized Ceremony! We were hoping for a perfect sunny sky for our outdoor ceremony but the weather had other ideas on the day of course and the rain started to fall just as Katie was walking down the aisle. We can only imagine how difficult is it would have been for you to keep the ceremony going. Thank you for going with the flow and regrouping the ‘Take Two’ inside on the dancefloor! Thank you for rolling with the punches with us. Thank you for being so organised and prepared for anything to happen! Thank you for your patience in using the DJ’s microphone! We recognise that it would have taken you out of your comfort zone and we really appreciate it! ! It was really your 11th hour support and aid that helped get Katie's family to the wedding that we can never say enough thank you's for! We'd love everyone to know that Marilyn went far above and beyond with writing and signing emergency official visa documents, out of business hours, for Katie's family to send to the embassy just days before the wedding so that they could come to Australia for the special day! The family have passed on their thanks too! Marilyn's true genuine kind hearted spirit is what we'll always remember her by. It's always a warm memory thinking back on the stressful events leading up to the wedding and knowing that Marilyn, who barely knew us was really truly there for us, supporting us! You are truly a genuinely kind hearted and generous person!  Thank you for working together with Julia to make sure that she had an understanding of how the ceremony would run so she could film it at the best possible angles. Thank you Marcel for being there too and for helping us and Marilyn! We wish you all the best for the future! Thank you so much Marilyn, you are such a special person to us and we are so grateful that we chose you as our celebrant! From the bottom of our hearts thank you so very much! You will always be a very special person to us!  We love you lots & lots!! Xx Jacob & Katie and love from Missy & Bandy too!

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

MARILYN WAS AMAZING! SHE MADE THE BIGGEST DAY OF OUR LIVES THE MOST PERFECT EXPERIENCE WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED. The personal service and the support and advice she gave us was invaluable. So many of our guests have said it was the BEST WEDDING CEREMONY THEY HAVE EVERY ATTENDED, the PERFECT BALANCE OF LOVE, LAUGHTER, INTIMACY AND FUN. We can't speak highly enough of you to anyone who'll listen. From our very first meeting we felt completely at ease, she had everything under control. The first draft that Marilyn did of our ceremony was so incredible we had tears on our eyes reading through it and made very few changes to it. It felt as if we'd known her for years, she got us, and was completely on board with the personal quirks we wanted included in our ceremony. Thank you so so much Marilyn, from the bottom of our hearts, the brand new Mr and Mrs Barber xoxo

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

Dear Marilyn, It has been 1 month and 10 days since our wedding day and so far so good – blissful in fact.  We wanted to express our thanks to you for all you did for us on our special day. In planning a wedding I didn’t really know where to start, the first place I thought to look was the Internet and I came across a site for celebrants – there were literally 100’s.  I didn’t really have a plan of attack in choosing one so I read a little about a few on the site and sent off enquiries to them.  Out of the half that decided to respond, I got a few that were very pushy and a few that didn’t have much experience, and then I heard from you.  From the beginning you came across as being there for US on OUR day – not for the JOB.  Out of all the little and big things you have to do to plan a wedding you lose sight of what it is your doing it all for and you got us excited and brought us back to that meaning.  You discussed with us what we wanted to do, where it was to be held, gave us some suggestions of different things we could do to make it more memorable not only to us but to our guests also – and this was from the first phone call. It was fun and light-hearted in some parts, touching and meaningful in others – it was perfect. So thanks again for making our day extra special and I look forward to seeing you again (when we book you in for our first born naming ceremony).Yours faithfully, Mr & Mrs Popa.

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

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayLove Letter from Sarah & Mauro married on Main Beach Main Beach Northern Gold Coast QLD
"Sarah and I organized our wedding in almost one month, as I was coming from abroad we had to make a lot of decisions in a little time. While we were surfing the net we bumped into the Marry Me Marilyn web site. We were impressed by Marilyn’s experience in a range of different ceremonies… they were really special and touching and basically we wanted to incorporate all of them!   We choose Marilyn without even getting to know her and exactly one month and one day before the wedding we were at her place planning our wedding from scratch. Since the first meeting with her we felt we had made the right decision: she was just great! Perhaps the most important thing about your wedding is for the ceremony to be personalized for both yourself and your partner… the celebrant needs to understand how your couple is unique then create around you the perfect wedding, this takes time, sensitivity and passion. Marilyn was perfect in all of this! From that first day we felt that we were not just a job for her but that she would have gone the extra mile to understand us and to make our ceremony unique. She is also really precise, thoughtful and easy to deal with. In two weeks she helped us to design the perfect ceremony while she never rushed us. We got married on a beautiful, perhaps too windy day at Main Beach. I think that day Marilyn made all the young couples present at the wedding want to marry straight away, some of our friends even asked for her contacts! We highly recommend Marilyn she is the perfect choice for your big day!” love Sarah & Mauro x

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayLove Letter from Candy & Joe Helicopter Wedding Marina Mirage Gold Coast
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

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 x

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 Thank You Marilyn for helping to find our amazing photographers Corne & Lara Photography

Dear Marilyn, We would like to write to you to say thank you very much for our wedding day on the 1st of October. The whole day went perfect and you made us feel comfortable. Thank you for suggesting that John kiss me as I get there it really did calm my nerves a little. You had so much advice to give, and one thing I am going to miss is our conversations on the phone. You were always professional but so easy to talk to at the same time; it was like having a conversation with someone I had known for years. So thank you for that. Our secret ritual was a hit we received so many compliments on that idea people were saying 'how cute' and 'what a beautiful idea' so thank you again. We look forward finishing the ceremony on our 20th anniversary :) I have attached a few photos for you to have. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us Marilyn. Our parents loved the surprise ring warming too, they thought it was lovely that we included them in our ceremony and we are glad we kept it a surprise. Thank you Marilyn! Sarah & John Haynes xoxox

EVERYONE came up to us and COMPLIMENTED US ON OUR WEDDING CEREMONY and they still do to this day. Out of every single person we met throughout the phase of our wedding organisations, MARILYN was by far the KINDEST and MOST UNDERSTANDING PERSON.  We really felt like she was one of our family with her excitement and enthusiasm towards our wedding. Honestly the wedding would not have been what it was if it wasn't for Marilyn. So many other services were just there for the money they could make from the wedding.  NOT ONCE did we get that feeling from Marilyn.  She was so good to go to even about having worries and concerns in the lead up to the wedding and how to come through these. Marilyn was so helpful in organizing all the small details and wrapping together our dreams of a wedding that we had always envisaged. We had vows we had wanted to write and Marilyn was so helpful in putting all this together. Our story was so important to us, along with our vows. Marilyn also dressed so beautifully and blended into our wedding colours as if though she was dressed with the bride and bridesmaids. She looked absolutely beautiful and it was such an honour to have her do our ceremony for us. I hope she is still doing the same thing when my children grow up so we can keep her in the family! Love Samantha & Shane xoxo

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

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

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

We met Marilyn by serendipity when an email from her spontaneously arrived in my Inbox, before Gordon and I had even set a date.  A couple of months later, though, we decided it was ‘time’, and from there, we were in a whirlwind developing the Ceremony, progressing through the legals and just ‘the overall’ of how a Marriage Ceremony falls into place.  Marilyn helped me 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 Sincerely, Fatima and Gordon

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Esther & Steve's Wedding on Woorim Beach Bribie Island 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

Hi Marilyn, Ken and I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for being our celebrant for our wedding at Brisbane Powerhouse. Although the day was overwhelming and we didn't really get a chance to properly Thank you, it was absolutely perfect! Our ceremony was everything we dreamed of and was so us! Thank you for NOT just providing a generic ceremony, but tailoring it to our personalities and the time and patience in the lead up to the day. We honestly couldn't thank you enough. On another note, we have had countless messages from guests and onlookers saying how beautiful the ceremony was and that it was so refreshing to hear laughter and relaxation during it. You did a fantastic job! Once we receive our photos, a Thank you card will be on its way! Love Emma & Ken xoxo

Marilyn, we appreciate what you have done for us. We really enjoyed the time at the ceremony. It was a wonderful wedding. We never forget the beautiful time.
Adam told me that he asked Marilyn to be our celebrant when I was in Japan. I was looking forward to seeing you and also I was really nervous, because I’m still studying English so I was worried if I couldn’t understand what you say, but you talked to me slowly and clearly when I met you for the first time, and you tried harder to understand what I want to say. You always smile and made me feel comfortable. We are very satisfied with your work. You helped a lot to make a beautiful wedding for us. We were happy to spend a great time with you at the special day. Marilyn is a warm and helpful person. We are sure that everyone will feel the same way as us.
Thank you for helping with everything for our wedding.  It is a wonderful memory for us.

“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 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 and Sean.”

Marilyn, Thank-you so much for the wonderful job you did for our ceremony, we loved how you personalised it for us. Without a doubt the most perfect day of our lives. Held at the parents house in the garden made for a intimate celebration. Marilyn was paramount in making this possible. From the outset Marilyn was wonderful, during our first initial meeting Marilyn welcomed us into her home and built immediate rapport. Marilyn walked us through the steps of a ceremony helping us to personalise our own. She took our love story and incorporated it into the most unique and beautiful ceremony. Marilyn made herself available to us at all times, even coming to our home. Marilyn not only was our celebrant she was part of our marriage celebration, she was our guest. We cant wait to see what she has in store for the celebration of when we start a family.
Thanks again Marilyn and we would love to have you come do a baby naming ceremony with us when we are ready to start a family. All the best.

David says his Traditonal Vows to Vicki at the Wings Hinterland Retreat on the Gold Coast with Celebrant Marilyn Verschuure from Marry Me Marilyn

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayVicki & David Wings Hinterland Retreat Tallai Central Gold Coast South East Queensland
We live in Brisbane and decided to get married on the Gold Coast. It was easiest for us to contact celebrants via email. Marilyn was the only one who called to discuss our wedding plans and seemed just as enthusiastic and interested in our day as we were. Even on the phone, before meeting in person, she had suggestions regarding our day and made us feel at ease. A simple, no fuss ceremony is what we had wished for and Marilyn was very helpful with various ideas - some of which we didn't even consider before our first meeting. The literature that we could access via Marilyn's website regarding the ceremony structure and content was extensive. In fact, we couldn't of planned our ceremony without it. Marilyn was also there at all stages of our planning if we needed her help. On our wedding day, Marilyn was extremely professional and made our ceremony fun and enjoyable. She made us feel relaxed, which on your wedding day is very important! Marilyn truly cares about your special day and we have no hesitation in recommending Marilyn as your celebrant.
David and I would like to thank you so much for your services on our wedding day. We both thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony and the entire day, though it went too fast!. Vicki & Dave (Vicki & David requested that I wear red to match their Gerbras :-)

Marry Me Marilyn Katy & Nick Haines married on Burleigh Beach from Christchurch, New Zealand
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. I cant say that we were overly demanding about our ceremony, but we certainly knew what we didn't want! 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 & Nick Haines, Christchurch.

Dear lovely Marilyn, We have both struggled to find the right words that would properly detail how grateful we are for you. Right from the start you had us figured out and straight away went to work planning a GORGEOUS CEREMONY that left EVERY PERSON AT OUR WEDDING IN TEARS FROM START TO FINISH. You were SO PROFESSIONAL but at the same time FELT LIKE A FRIEND WE HAD KNOWN FOR YEARS, so felt right at home with you up the front marrying us. I was worried before I chose a celebrant thinking the process would be difficult and that we wouldn't get the ceremony that we wanted but you've got a MAGIC & PRESCENCE in you that SURPASSES EVERY EXPECTATION we had. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for being our celebrant and being there for us every step of the way. Our day would not have been perfect with you. Love Emily & Murray xoxo

We had so many comments from friends and family about there being 'no boring bits', and everyone absolutely loved how you told our love story and keep them hanging for our proposal story later in the ceremony! Full of fun and laughs it was the ceremony we had imagined and took all the worries about the awful weather away! We feel very lucky to have found you as easily as we did and wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to other couples.Thank-you again! Michael and Nicola xx

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Civil Marriage Celebrant Queensland Australia Scott & Leah's Wedding was at Coolibah Downs Chapel Nerang Gold Coast
We chose Marilyn as our celebrant as she made a fabulous impression on us at our first meeting. We felt very comfortable and relaxed with Marilyn from the word go. Marilyn was incredibly helpful from the first phone call right through until the day of our Wedding when she pronounced us husband and wife. She gave us an enormous amount of resources to choose from and helped and guided us with the planning of our ceremony. The service Marilyn gave us on our wedding day was so much more than what we expected. If you found another celebrant to give us the service we received you would be paying possibly thousands of dollars and Marilyn's fees are so reasonable. We couldn’t be happier with the wonderful way Marilyn performed our Wedding Ceremony on the day. Marilyn you made our wedding day perfect we could not have asked anything more of you!  Thank you so much Marilyn for making a great day perfect! Thank you again Scott and Leah xoxo
