Marry Me Marilyn Rainbow Pride Celebrant for Kate & Allyce

Rainbow Pride CelebrantLove Letter from Allyce & Kate Mt Ommaney Apartments Mt Ommaney Brisbane
As anyone planning a wedding will know, it can be very stressful and trying to book everything and everyone can make you nervous and apprehensive, my partner, Kate and I found some really amazing people, especially on lady, the one and only Marilyn Verschuure. We knew she was the right celebrant for us after the very first phone which took place, not even 24hours after we had inquired in her Marry Me Marilyn Website.  On our very first initial meeting, Kate and I didn't feel like clients, we felt more like friends, everything we could possibly want to know and things we had no idea we could do was covered in our very first meeting. 
Kate and I had the most wonderful ceremony; you can't begin to imagine all the tiny little detail until the day of you rehearsal, but we didn't need to worry as Marilyn was a wonderful support to us, our bridal party and both of our parents the whole time. She is full of love and patience and we found her to be so encouraging. Marilyn knew and understood how just how important our parents and best friends were and she helped us to shape our ceremony so perfectly so we could have these special people involved! There was no request too big or too small and nothing was ever too much trouble. Marilyn made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. These are some of our dear friends and family said about our ceremony and Marilyn. it was elegant, funny, lovely, joyous, hilarious, surprising, you and Kate looked so connected, I loved how close you stayed to each other, Your celebrant created a wonderful atmosphere right from word go. These were elements that were so important to us, and it was these things, the small things that set our ceremony apart from many others that we have witnessed. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone! She is truly wonderful at what she does and so helpful. Once again thank you Marilyn, you are a wonderful soul and we couldn't have asked or hoped for a better celebrant! Love Allyce & Kate xoxo

Dear Marilyn, We'd like to say a sincere and heartfelt thank you for helping us to create, and for being a part of, the best day of our lives.The ceremony was beautiful and you were perfect. Your constant guidance made the lead up to our wedding day completely stress free. We are so grateful! Your guidance also helped us create a ceremony that was unique and very special to the both of us and we have received many comments about the beautiful words that were spoken on the day. So many of our guests were blown away with how beautiful the ceremony was and they felt that you could not possibly have done any better. You looked so lovely as well. You have a natural ability to put people at ease, and assure them everything will run smoothly on the day. Nothing at all was too much trouble and you solved any problem we threw your way. We truly could not have had a better celebrant. Pat who read the poem at our Commitment was a Celebrant also and she said you were fantastic and that she could not have done better! We would recommend you to anyone in need of a celebrant. We just wanted to say a huge thank you! IT WAS PERFECT. This is a day we will never forget and you were huge part of it. Lots of love Yvonne and Karen xx

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Nat & Bec Broadway Chapel Woolloongabba Southside Inner City Brisbane
Dear Marilyn, Our day could not have been more perfect! The ceremony was just as we had hoped and we thank you very much for everything.   We wanted a very simple and short ceremony; Marilyn did not try to persuade us towards any particular type of ceremony however Marilyn did offer us examples of other ceremonies, readings, and poems and gave us ideas of things we could include. Marilyn also gave us advice regarding many variables we may need to consider on the day, which helped us plan for any event. Marilyn became a really important part of our day, offering support and guidance. We are really happy with the service Marilyn provided and have had numerous comments from our guests on how beautiful the ceremony was. The ceremony was the perfect start to the rest of our lives together and we will never forget the help we received from Marilyn. We highly recommend Marilyn to perform any ceremony and know Marilyn will help make your day very special! Kindest regards Bec & Nat xoxox

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Jude & Barb's Commitment on Bribie Island's legendary Pumicstone Passage Beach
Marilyn’s lovely, friendly approach made our commitment ceremony a very ’natural’ process for us; we were wanting something ‘elemental’ and she steered us to a place where we could articulate and make real, what we wanted to share with everyone joining us.  We both felt ‘present’ on the day and that our day was unique, all due to Marilyn’s respectful and professional style as our Celebrant. Thank you Marilyn!!! The Girls xoxo

People did not stop talking about how beautiful the sand ceremony was at Helen & Cara's Commitment with Rainbow Pride Celebrant Marilyn Verschuure

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Cara & Helen Commitment Vic Lucas Park Bulimba Brisbane
"When I first met Marilyn, I knew she would be perfect for our ceremony. We only had a short space of time to prepare the wedding (6 weeks!!) and Marilyn was so professional and organised without being stressful - just what we needed!! Marilyn's wealth of knowledge and on-line resources allowed us to tailor a unique, memorable and meaningful ceremony for both Helen and I and our two children. People did not stop talking about how beautiful the sand ceremony was! Throughout the ceremony Marilyn was relaxed but professional, she interpreted our love story perfectly: she just "got" us and it showed. The guests laughed and cried throughout the ceremony (at all the right places).  To sum it up; two of our friends said that they had never cried before at any wedding the had been to...until ours. Practically all our guests said that they had never been to a more beautiful ceremony. Thank you Marilyn :-))) x" love Helen & Cara

Helen & Cara had a commitment with a Flower Exchange that combined with their Love Story made their friends cry with Rainbow Pride Celebrant Marilyn Verschuure

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Cara & Helen Commitment Vic Lucas Park Bulimba Brisbane
“Marilyn had wonderful ideas to make our ceremony special, but also really listened to what we wanted to make our day unique. She perceptively picked up the mood and style that we wanted and help make it the day truly ours. I especially liked the balanced way that we could rely on her professional advice when we needed it without taking away from any of our own input or desires. Thank you so much Marilyn for helping to create the special ceremony and atmosphere just the way we wanted!” We will be in touch again when it is made legal! Love & Peace Helen x

Rainbow Pride Celebrant Marilyn VerschuureLove Letter from Rachel & Kris Victoria Point Redlands
We would like to thank Marilyn for making our day as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. We had several chats over the phone and exchanged emails to communicate our wishes for our day. We found Marilyn's website an absolute treasure trove of ideas and information. We were able to plan our entire ceremony around Marilyn's site and we were able to incorporate a Sand Ceremony with our children which signified our commitment as a family. Marilyn was easy to talk to and has a wonderful relaxed manor with people that puts you at ease straight away. She was very caring and supportive on the day of the ceremony and we could not have asked for a more wonderful Celebrant to oversee our Commitment Ceremony. We would highly recommend Marilyn to anyone. Thanks for everything you did for us.
Rachel & Kris

THANK YOU so very much Marilyn for joining us and conducting our Commitment Ceremony on 31.12.14 and for making our Commitment Ceremony so wonderful. We had the best day ever! You were fantastic and did a brilliant job. It was simply amazing and everyone was RAVING about YOU and our amazing CEREMONY!! Everyone loved you and they loved the fact that everything you designed was about Maisie and I ;) It was wonderful to be able to share our journey with others and we have you to thank for bringing it all together. Thank you for making our day SO SPECIAL!! Love Maisie & Candice xoxo P.S. We can’t wait to do it all again when it becomes legal and we look forward to you being a part of that day too :-)

Marilyn, Thank you so much for making our commitment ceremony so memorable and filled with love, not only for us but for our 100+ guests. Your passion and belief for our future together was projected through every word.

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Penny & Angela Broadbeach Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club Central Gold Coast
Marilyn, Thank you so much for making our commitment ceremony so memorable and filled with love, not only for us but for our 100+ guests. Your passion and belief for our future together was projected through every word.
Your delivery and sound quality was perfect and hard to achieve on the beach, so well done! You were very warm and composed that we relaxed the instant you started speaking. Your continuous support and ideas throughout the planning process was priceless. You made us feel very comfortable and helped us combine traditional vows and practices with the Celtic tradition of hand fasting. You also incorporated our fathers with a ring blessing rather than the traditional giving away. Everyone who attended said they had never been to a ceremony like it and enjoyed every minute of it. We are two very happy brides and will recommend you to anyone we know who wants to get married. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the start of our lives together unforgettable.
Love Penny and Angela

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron Bay Queensland Northern NSWLove Letter from Donna & Bridget Crowne Plaza Hotel Chapel Surfer's Paradise Gold Coast
Hi Marilyn, Thank you so much for our special day it really was awesome. We enjoyed your thoughts and service so much! We went online and found Marilyn on her Rainbow Pride Celebrant Website by Google searching. She made such a good first impression at our initial meeting. Donna and I wanted someone who had experience with Commitment Ceremonies, someone who was as just as passionate about love and family for all, as we are. We found Marilyn just this. Marilyn is thoughtful, extremely helpful, warm, supportive and above all passionate. Marilyn offered us oodles of resources to help plan our Commitment Ceremony. There was more than enough just in her Commitment Resource Pack and then there were all the online resources. We have three very small children, and over our busy year Marilyn has been so understanding about the minimal contact and at times the running, jumping and screaming of three small boys that often took place during our meetings, phone calls and rehearsal. Marilyn puts such effort and thought into every little detail. She also gave great advice and suggestions for our special day. We loved our ceremony that included our 3 boys, not a thing went wrong and it was the most perfect day for us! We have also recommended a number of people to use Marilyn as their celebrant for their Commitment or Wedding Ceremony plans over the next couple of years. Thank you so much Marilyn again for everything you're absolute GOLD! Lots of warm well wishes and we wish you the Happiest Christmas and a very joyful New Year : ), Bridget, Donna & the boys xoxo

Hi Marilyn, Well it’s hard to believe we are almost 3 weeks of married bliss.... we are both back at work now and it’s been tuff trying to get back into it. We just wanted to thank you so very much for making our day so wonderful and special. Everything was just as we pictured it and so many of our guests are still talking about what a wonderful ceremony it was. The Love Story was a huge hit as so many people did not really know where we began and they thought it was such a lovely touch.  Our day was emotional, loving, fun and very beautiful and that is all thanks to you Marilyn. As I said to you from when we first met the ceremony for us had to be just right and to us was the most important part of our day.  Thank you so much for everything you did, and I have passed on your name to many of our friends both gay and straight who want to make that life commitment to soul mates.  Take care and we will talk soon. Kind regards Maria & Sally Fox

at the New Farm Bowls Club New Farm Brisbane
Hi Marilyn, Thanks so much for conducting our beautiful ceremony. Your experience and advice made planning stress-free, and we felt our ceremony was very personal and reflected our commitment to each other. You put us at ease from our first phone call and meeting and your passion and enthusiasm made the planning fun. I liked meeting you first and talking about what we wanted.Your ideas for our vows and ring-warming were really great, and we enjoyed writing our personal Love Story. We always tell people our love story (because we think ours is the greatest) and with our ceremony we got to tell everyone at once. It was great how friendly, calm and supportive you were throughout everything. We have framed our certificate and put it in the living room. A lot of people said to us that our ceremony was the nicest and most meaningful they had ever been to, and we have already recommended you to a lot of our friends. Thank you for your support. We can't wait to have you back for the baby naming. Again, thank you so much! Liz & Danielle XOXOXO

Rainbow Pride CelebrantLove Letter Vienna & Keava Commitment Lancaster Park Waterford West Logan
So we hit the internet looking for the perfect celebrant and found you Marilyn. You were delightfully refreshing, informative and available to travel and free on the date so we booked you there and then.  Your website had plenty of information to pre-guide us, and you filled in the gaps and offered further suggestions. The quality of the ceremony was extraordinary - we could not have planned it without your expert assistance and guidance. The Celtic Handfasting with ribbons as binding ties were an awesome experience for our family, friends and all our guests. The Handfasting included our daughter, grandchildren and friends in presenting these special words and ribbons was an incredibly effective way of including them in the momentous occasion. As our son guided the bride into the gathering where the better half was waiting, all your ceremonial planning with the wedding planner fell into place exactly, and from that moment on, despite one small tear-up for which the maid of honour was ready, all was smooth sailing right down to the almost smallest participant!  A prompt fixed that, and no stumbles, not even with large words to say for the ten year old.  Bubbles filled the air-triumphantly after the happy couple emerged from signing the Certificate of Commitment - after 33 years together! Whoohoo!! Thank you so much for all your advice beforehand and understanding of our requirements for the inclusions of our family, grown as it has over the intervening years. Love and Best Wishes from Keava and Vienna Leary xox
