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

Marry Me MarilynMarry Me Marilyn provides choices for wording and special sub-ceremonies are limitless. We only need to say a couple of legal paragraphs to make the marriage legal so the options are endless and your ceremony can be as unique and wonderful as our combined imaginations.

Dear Marilyn, I just want to say thank you so much for everything you have done for myself and Lee. From the day we met you have been there for us both! I have never known anyone in my life to be as helpful and supportive as you have been to us!! You have always had the time for us, when we needed help or if we had any questions, for this I can't thank you enough. You made us feel welcome in your home, showing us some of your previous weddings you have done in the past and we must admit we had so much fun. And most importantly you made us feel at ease before the wedding, you always have the right words to say!! Thank you Marilyn for giving us the most beautiful wedding, we are so happy that we chose you, And so many people commented how much they enjoyed it. You're a gifted lady with a beautiful heart.

Marry Me Mariilyn Wedding Celebrant for Angela & David's Wedding at Palm Beach Gold Coast South East Queensland

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Angela & David Wedding Palm Beach Gold Coast Queensland
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 reduced 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

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

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 xoxoxo

We had lots of laughs throughout our wedding ceremony and Marilyn will be fondly remembered as a fabulous part of our perfect day! With Marilyn you get PERFECTION, and she will re-draft your ceremony with as much of your input until it’s just perfect! Marilyn married us on 23 October 2016 at Tamborine and by that day, she seemed more like an old friend, which was wonderful and comforting! Leading up to the wedding we had met with her to discuss and shape our wedding ceremony, and parts where we weren’t sure, she effortlessly guided us through by making suggestions or by giving us plenty of resources to think about. We had no idea how much was actually involved! But then we came to realise that we’d actually been very lucky in having chosen Marilyn to marry us: You might find a slightly cheaper celebrant to come on the day and just marry you, or you can chose Marilyn and be assured of getting a personalised wedding service that’ll be remembered by all that attended, it really is a matter of you get what you pay for! Love Judy & Henry xoxo

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

Dear Marilyn, We both want to say a big thank you for making our wedding ceremony so fabulous. You performed the ceremony seamlessly, we were amazed how smoothly it ran. As soon as I saw you on your Marry Me Marilyn website, I knew I wanted to meet you as you looked fun!!! We didn’t want a boring wedding ceremony and you certainly made sure it was super interesting and fun, connecting us as a couple. We loved the ways you involved our family & friends into the ceremony and we especially loved the way you helped us include our son in the most beautiful ways. The Wooden Wedding Box Ceremony we did was great, as it was something we had never seen before and a lot of guests commented on how lovely it was. You were always available and so quickly answered any questions we had and you did so many drafts of our ceremony to make sure it was absolutely perfect! And it was, thank you again!! Love Nicole & Craig Rowe xoxo

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.

For anyone looking for a Celebrant who takes the time to understand who you both are and what you are looking for in a wedding ceremony look no further than Marilyn. We looked at a few celebrants but Marilyn’s friendliness, enthusiasm, genuine interest in us as a couple, and her professionalism won hands down and she didn’t disappoint. From the beginning Marilyn got to know us and provided us with options for us to choose how we wanted the ceremony to go.  We had no idea where or how to start and Marilyn helped us through all the decisions giving us guidance but leaving the end result to us which ended up in a very personal ceremony. On our wedding day Marilyn’s personality radiated genuine happiness for us, and her ability to bring our story across throughout  the ceremony bought our guests into our bubble of love and made the day extra special for us. So if you are reading this and looking for a celebrant to complete your day in a personal and fun way, we can highly recommend Marilyn. A lovely lady and we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Love John & Kim – Now very happily married x

Marilyn was the celebrant at our friend's wedding about a year before ours and we liked her style so booked her straight away! (this is the wedding above) David and I met up with Marilyn a few months later and we got to know each other and then over the next few weeks we composed our wedding ceremony including our personal vows. Marilyn gave us some great ideas and we each sent her a story about ourselves and how we met etc. Marilyn then wove them into our Love Story which she told during our wedding ceremony. David and I could not have been happier with the results and many of our guests complimented us on it as well. Marilyn's talents did not end there. I got in touch with her not long after we booked her and she helped me find our venue. I told her what I was after her very first suggestion was Boomerang Farm which is where we ended up getting married. It was perfect. Love Ursula & David xoxoxo

Marilyn we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful ceremony you helped us create. Your unlimited resources helped us to have a ceremony that was not only heartfelt but allowed us to show our quirky, cheeky humour which led to a truly unique ceremony that perfectly reflected us and all of our guests raved about how perfect it was for us. Even the photographers commented on what a wonderful ceremony it was. Right from the first meeting we knew you were the celebrant for us you were friendly, professional, open minded and took into account what we wanted. We had no idea what to do for the ceremony but we did know we didn't want a big traditional soppy love story and with you guiding us along we were able to make our guest both cry and laugh with us. The wooden wedding box ceremony was an amazing idea which again got a lot of comments as it was something not many guests had seen before and we look forward to opening. Once again thank you so much for all your help we could not recommend a better celebrant. Ben and Deb Mitchell xoxoxo

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

Hi Marilyn, 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!

Both of us were rather nervous about getting married in the first place and thus found the prospect of meeting with the wedding celebrant rather daunting. However, when we first met Marilyn, all of our fears were blown away. She had a lovely presence, was totally authentic and let us be who we wanted to be. It was all about us and our ideas, which showed us how sensitive Marilyn is. Immediately, we felt at ease and knew we'd go ahead with her. Her kindness and her support helped us to get through the preparation for the wedding and her professionalism made the journey very easy and enjoyable. Her resources were utterly helpful in composing our vows and the wonderful input she gave us for the ceremony were simply amazing. She helped us to design the ceremony according to our needs and personalities, which ultimately made our wedding an unforgettable day that we will carry in our hearts for rest of our lives. Thanks Marilyn, your presence at our celebration was the icing of the cake. We are so lucky to have had you there with us. Love Sonja & Sandro xoxo

Marilyn made our day so special as we felt we had made a friend and it was our friend who was marrying us! I cannot thank her enough for the care, guidance and warmth she gave to us to make our marriage day as special as it was. Mostly I would recommend using Marilyn as your celebrant for A TRULY PROFESSIONAL, PERSONAL AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE! She is an amazing woman who will make your day as special as it can be!  Getting married in Australia was a bit of a daunting prospect for us given we live in Scotland!  However finding Marilyn on the internet was like FINDING GOLD! When we met with her on Skype we hit it off and knew that she was the celebrant for us.  She was so warm, sincere and knowledgeable. Marilyn talked us through the whole process and really gave us confidence in how to proceed.  Given the distances between our countries this was invaluable.  I have to say that Marilyn gave us good advice all the way and I would strongly recommend following her advice as her experience in this field is second to none. We could not have been happier with the very personalised experience we had preparing for, in the run up to and during our wedding.   I would also recommend using the resources Marilyn has on her website as they are very good for nudging you in the right direction when you get a bit lost during all the wedding preparations. THANK YOU MARILYN FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, YOU ARE AMAZING! Love Dianne & Willie xoxoxo

Dear Marilyn, Our wedding ceremony was amazing! You did such a fantastic job!! 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. Your guidance 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. You have a natural ability to put people at ease, in particular, the mini-rehearsal of the ceremony you did with our bridal party. You made it fun and therefore we were all less nervous.  It's that kind of thoughtfulness and insight that obviously made a difference.  It is really obvious that you love your job.  It is without hesitation that we would highly recommend you to anyone.

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

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!

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Kirsty & Vlad's Wedding Glengariff Historic Estate Dayboro Valley Brisbane
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.

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 fulfill 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 & 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 & Michael xox

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.

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 :-)

Things didn't quite go to plan with the huge thunderstorm but I think we will remember our day for the unpredictable things that happened, like having my brother and nephews standing up there with us with all those colourful umbrellas. Lynda and Carl xx." Thank you to John Bortolin Photography for the gorgeous photos of Carl & Lynda.
Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Lynda & Carl Currumbin Beach
When we decided to get married, finding a celebrant was one of our first tasks. I contacted quite a few celebrants online but Marilyn was the only one who took the time to call me personally, and after a brief chat and our first meeting we knew we didn't need to look any further. Marilyn was warm, friendly, helpful and genuinely committed to helping us create a special ceremony that really suited us as a couple, even when we weren't exactly sure what we wanted. As the day got closer, she provided us with some wonderful resources and suggestions to help us create a ceremony that was perfect for us. On the day itself, Marilyn was amazing- staying totally calm and relaxed as the rain started during our ceremony, and producing a colourful array of umbrellas to keep us and our guests dry. It was brilliant and made the day extra memorable for us and our guests. So if you a looking for a celebrant who truly cares about creating a unique ceremony and is dedicated & passionate about her work then look no further than this wonderful woman. Thanks again Lynda & Carl xx

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

Marilyn made our day so special as we felt we had made a friend and it was our friend who was marrying us! I cannot thank her enough for the care, guidance and warmth she gave to us to make our marriage day as special as it was. Mostly I would recommend using Marilyn as your celebrant for A TRULY PROFESSIONAL, PERSONAL AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE! She is an amazing woman who will make your day as special as it can be!  Getting married in Australia was a bit of a daunting prospect for us given we live in Scotland!  However finding Marilyn on the internet was like FINDING GOLD! When we met with her on Skype we hit it off and knew that she was the celebrant for us.  She was so warm, sincere and knowledgeable. Marilyn talked us through the whole process and really gave us confidence in how to proceed.  Given the distances between our countries this was invaluable.  I have to say that Marilyn gave us good advice all the way and I would strongly recommend following her advice as her experience in this field is second to none. We could not have been happier with the very personalised experience we had preparing for, in the run up to and during our wedding.   I would also recommend using the resources Marilyn has on her website as they are very good for nudging you in the right direction when you get a bit lost during all the wedding preparations.   THANK YOU MARILYN FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR HEARTS, YOU ARE AMAZING! Love Dianne & Willie xoxoxo

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

Hi Marilyn, I just wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU!  We can't thank you enough for sharing in our special day and helping shape our ceremony into something that SUITED US PERFECTLY! We were totally thrilled with how it went and you did a WONDERFUL JOB on the day. I can truly say that the ceremony was the best part of our special day as we were able to put the nerves aside and enjoy it. We can't thank you enough for this!  From when we first met you at your place we were welcomed in and knew we had made the right choice in our celebrant. You were able to provide us different ideas which we were able to get inspiration when choosing the specific elements for our Wedding Ceremony on our special day. We were a little nervous leading up to the ceremony but with your tips and guidance I would have to say that I wasn't all that nervous on the day and I was able to relax and enjoy the ceremony side of things. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends and hope to share in the joy of another wedding with you soon. All the best, Kind regards Hayley & Ben x

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 xoxo

Lynsey and I were very happy with the service you supplied; everything from teaching my wife how not to cry during the ceremony through to being very attentive when it came to photo opportunities. I noticed during our video that the second we went in for our first kiss you moved to the side so that the camera could get a perfect shot of Lynsey and I having our first kiss as husband and wife with the magnificent backdrop. I was also very happy with the amount of templates and information that was supplied. It all helped quite a lot when it came to getting the ceremony wording and our vows perfect. We are both very happy and grateful for the effort that was put in by yourself. Kind Regards Lynsey & Stephen xoxox

I feel like it all went by so quickly (which is what everyone says I suppose). I remember standing up there during the ceremony and all I could think was "this is happening, this is real, savour it, savour it!"  You advised us at our rehearsal how to be fully present to make our experience something we would remember in detail so it didn’t go by in a blur.....it worked!

To Marilyn, We just wanted to email and say a big THANK YOU! From the first meeting with had with Marilyn, we were both simply at ease. We knew there was nothing we had to worry about - she made everything so much easier for us!! We had 2 wedding ceremonies, firstly the ceremony that Marilyn married us at and another was our traditional Indian ceremony. We had enough stress on our minds about the second wedding so we basically relied on Marilyn for most of the things for our first. The ceremony was so beautiful. For our families that were present there, it was the first time they’d witnessed a wedding as such since all the weddings they’d been to previously were traditional Indian ones. And trust me; everyone could not stop praising her!! The way she took us through the ceremony was so lovely. Thanks for everything you did for us Marilyn. You went above and beyond. You’re amazing! THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!! Pooja & Harshil xoxo

Seems like we can't put 6 stars, I would if I could. Marilyn has made the wedding experience a breeze. You really want her as a celebrant and I'm not paid to say so. From the planning phase where she gives you countless tips on things outside the scope of her business just because she actually cares, to the coaching throughout the day itself. Seriously, we were quite stressed (as you can imagine), and as soon as she arrived, stressed oozed out of us. Everything was smooth and orchestrated, she's funny, friendly, outgoing, everyone raved about how great the wedding was compared to what you could be used to. She was accommodating too, we married in the bush quite far from her place and she made it happen in the best possible way. We also have very different cultures and she dived in to understand and merge it in a clever way. It was a big memorable day and there's no way she's not responsible for it, Thank you for being our marriage celebrant to make special day. Marilyn, you are such a beautiful caring person and great to had you on our wedding. You were perfect and made that day such a special and memorable moment of our life. Thank you !

Marilyn was immediately a kindred spirit sent to help us make our ceremony exactly what we envisaged. When working with her she was extremely warm and helpful with everything. Marilyn composed our "loving sentiments" into beautifully phrased vows and helped me find the perfect reading that reflected our values & beliefs. Marilyn was so professional, ensuring we had all the technical points sorted at our rehearsal, so that on the day we automatically stood in the right place, timed the music and everything ran seamlessly in a totally relaxed and natural way. This allowed us to relax, be in the moment and enjoy our ceremony. We would recommend Marilyn to any couple that wants a heartfelt, sincere, professional, celebration of your individual love.

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.

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 once again for all your fantastic services (assistance, professionalism, kindness and friendship) that you have provided - Daniel & Tanya Luke.

From the very first time I spoke to Marilyn on the phone I knew she would be perfect for our special day. Ours was a little different as it was for our daughters Naming Day and we did a surprise wedding at the end of that. Marilyn was extremely helpful in making our day so special and individual, as I have a little one to look after I asked Marilyn if she could write the ceremonies for us and then I just changed whatever I needed and together we made it a beautiful day to make our family complete. Marilyn was always open to my suggestions and offered advice if I ever asked anything. Marilyn was always friendly and approachable and willing to help in any way she could. We had so many comments from guests on how beautiful our ceremonies were and that it was the best wedding they had ever been too. I would proudly recommend Marilyn to anyone and we will definitely use her for our next baby’s Naming Ceremony.

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

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Civil Marriage Celebrant Queensland Australia Love Letter Scott & Leah Wedding 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.

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayLove Letter Vicki & David Wedding Ceremony Wings Hinterland Retreat Tallai.
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. ((Vicki & David requested that I wear red to match their Gerbras :-)

Marry Me Marilyn married Katrina & Brad from Inverell in NSW had their Wedding at the swinging Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast on 10.10.10 It certainly was a wedding with the WOW factor!

Marry Me MarilynEmail from Katrina & Brad
“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”
Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Katrina & Brad from Inverell in NSW Wedding Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers Paradise
It certainly was a wedding with the WOW factor! 10/10/10, we were married by Marylin 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. Love Brad & Kat x

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Ray & Suzanne Wedding from Canberra ACT at 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

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

Lucas and I feel so blessed that we found Marry Me Marilyn ….Our Perfect Celebrant! We put a lot of time and effort into finding the person that would be perfect to marry us because to us the ceremony and the celebrant were of the utmost importance. Before the wedding she was a Guardian Angel taking the stress out of our ceremony. Every aspect of the ceremony she presented to us was just perfect and themed beautifully for our house boat wedding. On our big day it was like having a family member or a lifelong friend by our side. Marilyn is a beautiful, warm, loving and wonderful person that takes her job far and beyond what you would expect. We could not have been happier as she helped make our day so perfect! Thank you Marilyn from the bottom of our hearts for being who you are! You brought so much happiness to our wedding day and even affected our life afterwards in such a positive way. We will love you forever! Teegan & Lucas Jones xoxoxo

Carla and Joel Francis married at Surfers Paradise Beach Gold Coast by Marry Me Marilyn

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Carla and Joel Francis married at Surfers Paradise Beach Gold Coast Queensland
My husband and I recently were married by Marilyn in Surfers Paradise on the beach. Marilyn played a huge role in making our day one special one to remember. It was perfect in many ways. We met Marilyn in 2012 when she kindly invited us to her home to discuss putting together a wedding ceremony for us. We felt very at home and Marilyn made discussing our needs very easy. My husband is from the Caribbean and Marilyn was very knowledgeable with the steps that needed to be taken for us to get married here in Australia. She assisted us many times during our visa process which was definitely going above and beyond that of a marriage celebrant. Marilyn spent many hours on our wedding ceremony. I think there was up to 6 drafts. She included our close family members in our ceremony which was very important to us. As my husband was from another country she researched his home town and also included it in our ceremony. The whole ceremony was all about us and who we are and what we believe in. It was so beautiful and bought tears to many of our guest’s eyes. We are still receiving comments from our guests as to how beautiful our ceremony was. Marilyn provided us with a professional, personal service and we are very thankful to her for everything and again for helping to make our day so wonderful. Love Carla & Joel Francis x

No words can express how forever grateful we are to you Marilyn for being the remarkable person you are. We would recommend Marilyn without any hesitation if you are looking for a celebrant who goes that extra mile to make your day memorable. After 39 happy years as a couple we set out to incorporate a surprise wedding while holidaying on the Gold Coast with our family from New Zealand. With the good fortune of finding Marry Me Marilyn website, we were in turn blessed with such a personalised, memorable ceremony all due in no small part to Marilyn’s capability to understand what we wanted in one visit to meet her. We left that appointment with relief as we had found the most competent and integral part of our wedding day. As we are sure every bride and groom before us knows you only have to meet Marilyn in person to feel her energy, enthusiasm and heartfelt connection that she makes with you. Within days Marilyn had the first draft out for the ceremony. With emails bouncing back and forward over the Tasman, Marilyn guided us, gave us suggestions and an enjoyable journey to end up with a service which meant the world to us. Marilyn took over all the legal side before and after, including lodging and applying for the registered copy of our Marriage certificate at QLD BDM, which has saved us time and was a massive load taken off us with not being Australian residents. We made very few alterations to that first draft of our ceremony, which only confirms how much Marilyn listened and connected with us resulting in a ceremony which reflected the true spirit of Peter and I. Thank you so much Marilyn as you are every thing and more than I had ever hoped for to play such an important part in our journey! Love Michelle & Peter x

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

We cannot express our appreciation enough, from start to finish you made everything simple for us but so meaningful to everyone at the same time.  I loved the way you incorporated other members of the family with the blessing the rings. The Wooden Wedding Box sub-ceremony included an interesting angle for the guests while impressing on them the commitment we were making. You made us feel like you are part of our family and I would certainly recommend your services.  It was an inspiration to see you genuinely enjoying what you do. Love Thomas, Seemena & Therese xoxox

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

Hi Marilyn, Well the dust has finally started to settle and I am only now starting to come back to Earth and reflect on our special day. Wow!!!!  What a blur!!!!  But such a happy blur! Thank you so much for being such a huge part of our special day. Matt and I are truly thankful for your support and guidance throughout the whole process. I have to say that the ceremony felt as through only Matt and I existed on the side of that beautiful mountain. I look back and feel a little guilty that we were in our own little bubble and the rest of the world didn’t exist in those moments. I just can’t wait to watch the video so that I can look back and take it all in again and see the pure emotion on Matt’s face (and the tears lol!). It really was magical for both Matt and I and everything we wanted it to be. Even the wind and rain at the beginning couldn’t dampen our spirits. Once again THANK YOU for sharing our day and guiding us. We are truly blessed. Cass & Matt xxx
