Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Sarah & John Haynes married at Philip Park Main Beach Northern Gold Coast QLD
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.The Wooden Wedding Box Ceremony 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 secret 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 xoxoxox

Wooden Wedding Box Ceremony with Marry Me Marilyn

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter Wedding Kasey & James Wedding Mantra on Salt Kingscliff
Hi Marilyn, We had a fantastic honeymoon and we were so delightfully thrilled with all aspects of our wedding and have since had so many compliments about our Wedding Ceremony. My husband James and I came across Marilyn after surfing the web for hours and hours for the perfect celebrant who would be able to create a ceremony that completely reflected who we are as a couple. We were after a creative ceremony, with elements a little unusual and unique. We loved the idea of the “love story” as that is something all couples hold special and what a better day to celebrate that story than on your wedding day! After scrolling down so many testimonials and reading more about Marilyn, we decided to meet with the lady herself. Marilyn showed us numerous of suggestions to help us achieve our dream ceremony and her personality was so friendly and it just seemed so fitting to our wedding day, so we quickly booked! Although it was still well over a year until our wedding date, Marilyn was more than happy to start working on our ceremony with us as one of the very first things we did. I’m sure she had so many other ceremony’s to map out before ours, but she never let on that it was too early or too much trouble. In fact it worked out so well as we had plenty of time to perfect our ceremony exactly the way we wanted it well in advance and well before the wedding plans ramped up and we wouldn’t have had enough time to dedicate the thought we gave it. With Marilyn’s help we had it sorted months and months before our big day! On our wedding Day Marilyn arrived early as promised and went to visit James and the boys to make sure they were all up to scratch on ceremony movements and timings. Her delivery of the ceremony was fantastic, she told out love story with such enthusiasm! Our guests loved her special touches, such as the wooden box idea. We had our best man construct a wooden box, during the ceremony we had a nice bottle of scotch, and our love letters to each other sealed shut. It was the touch that really set our ceremony apart from lots of others we have attended. Marilyn is simply fantastic and made it seem as our big day was just as special to her as it was to us! I have also attached a few pictures that help to show the little “Marilyn touches” that we loved so much at our wedding.

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 from Inverell in NSW
“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 wooden wedding box ceremony, ring warming, basically everything an average wedding is not. Anyhoo, I will touch base when I get back from Melbourne for a chat, just wanted again to say thanks again, everything went too quick and I didn’t get to catch up with you two as much as planned but thanks again and hope you had as much fun as we did…Cheers, Kat & Coops”

It certainly was a wedding with the WOW factor! 10/10/10, we were married by 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

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

Marilyn made our WEDDING CEREMONY ROMANTIC, FUNNY, LIGHT-HEARTED, CREATIVE AND UNIQUE. Marilyn explained the whole process to us, and organised all the paperwork. She took us thru step-by-step of what to expect on the day and gave us tips and tricks on ways to keep it fun and stress-free. She even suggested we put in our own funny asking’s, which were a huge hit on the day. She made sure above everything else that the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. WE HAVE HAD SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ABOUT OUR CEREMONY. We would have been so lost without her. WE ARE BEYOND GRATEFUL FOR EVERYTHING SHE DID FOR US LEADING UP TO, AND ON THE DAY, AND WILL BE RECOMMENDING HER TO EVERYONE! In the beginning when we first started planning our wedding, we had no idea how to find a celebrant. I ended up googling “Best Celebrant on the Gold Coast” and Marilyn’s name popped up. We knew was we wanted to keep it fun, casual and carefree. From our email correspondence, I had a feeling Marilyn was going to be the perfect choice for us, and after meeting in person, I was 100% sure. Marilyn explained the whole process to us, and organised all the paperwork. She took us thru step-by-step of what to expect on the day and gave us tips and tricks on ways to keep it fun and stress-free. SHE EVEN SUGGESTED WE PUT IN OUR OWN FUNNY I DO’S, WHICH WERE A HUGE HIT ON THE DAY. She was very accommodating to the fact we could only ever meet her at night during the week and even let us do a practice ceremony with her one night just before the wedding. Marilyn thought of things I had not even considered, including how to have our hands when we put on our rings so the photographer got the best possible shot, and even asked us what colour we wanted her to wear on the day so she did not clash with the colour theme. Marilyn even offered to supply the music device for us for the ceremony. Thanks Again Marilyn! Love Luke & Jessica Marr xoxo

For a stressed out couple trying to organise their wedding, managing to be so lucky to have the support of Marilyn made a world of difference. She was able to guide us through the whole process, and she provided us with the comfort and clarity of how everything would be for the ceremony. Marilyn took great care and attention to detail to make A WONDERFUL LOVE STORY ABOUT US, AND IT MADE SURE THAT OUR CEREMONY WAS FILLED WITH HISTORY, LOVE AND LAUGHTER. Marilyn was able to give us so much more than just a great speech - the "stage directions" of where to be, and going through a private rehearsal with her was excellent. Everything looked seamless and the photographers loved it. She was able to suggest a toasting during the ceremony of our favourite drink we had on our first date, and to have a Wooden Wedding Box during our ceremony where love letters we wrote to each other (for our first anniversary) were placed into. These special symbols worked into our history of how we met, and will now be something we carry forward into our marriage forever. I can honestly say that Marilyn has been better than any other celebrant and created a better ceremony than I have ever seen since, and you should have no hesitation in meeting her and creating something magical together. Wishing everyone much love and fun, Kevin & Giovanna Vanderbeken xo

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!!

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

Hi Marilyn, Thank you, thank you, thank you for being our marriage celebrant. 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

Owen designed and created the most awesome wooden wedding box in a Shabby Chic style it was just gorgeous. So many people commented that our wedding ceremony was special and unique and there wasn't a dry eye in the house! From the moment we walked in Marilyn's front door, she made us feel so comfortable and welcome. Within 5 minutes of sitting down and talking to her, we felt like we had known her our whole lives! As soon as we left her house, Owen and I looked at each other and smiled, as we knew she would be the perfect person to marry us. We wanted our own special ceremony right from the start, and Marilyn was always suggesting options for us. The end result was absolutely magical. We wrote the whole ceremony ourselves with Marilyn in a co-creation process and Marilyn executed it perfectly, and told our love story exactly as it should have been told! Thank you Marilyn, for making our memories of our special day so amazing! Thank you again for everything, and we wish you all the happiness for the future! Kasey & Owen x
