Unity Sand Ceremony

Marilyn Verschuure Marry Me Marilyn Wedding Celebrant Gold Coast Brisbane Byron BayThe Unity Sand Ceremony is known all over the world for its beauty and sanctity. Couples add this ceremony to their wedding as an alternative to the unity candle ceremony because it so elegantly captures the meaning of their two lives becoming one. And it creates a lasting keepsake of that special day. It is especially suited to a beach or outdoor wedding and for especially for families and blended families.

Marilyn your ideas in getting our family involved were great! The Sand Ceremony and our ‘Family Hug’ at the end has still got everyone talking.

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Deirdre & Tim married at Tallebudgera Creek Beach Central Gold Coast
Dear Marilyn, We would like to thank you so much for being our wonderful and beautiful celebrant at our wedding. You truly went above and beyond in guiding us through the whole process. You gave us fantastic ideas and kept our nerves at bay! Being together for many years and having 3 gorgeous children made it a little hard for us to get really excited about it all, but you reminded us of our love for one another and how beautiful marriage is for not just us but for our whole family unit. You were always keeping us excited and we could tell you were genuinely excited for us too! Your ideas in getting our family involved were great! The Sand Ceremony and our ‘Family Hug’ at the end has still got everyone talking. Those moments were truly magical and we would never have thought of that if we hadn’t been so lucky as to meet you. The vows you wrote for us too were so heartfelt, romantic and truly resonated with both of us on so many levels. Anyone can tell Marilyn that you absolutely love what you do – your face tells it all! And you adore every single happy couple you marry. But it doesn’t stop there, you also love the families and friends. You make sure everyone involved feels at absolute ease and you really think of everything! A big highlight for me was seeing not only Timmy but you shed a tear as I was walking down the aisle. That shows how much you love what you do and how much you love your lucky couples! So thank you again Marilyn for making our day so special and for being you – a beautiful, kind-hearted soul. We will be forever grateful! “Thank You SOOOOOOOOO much!!” Lots of Love Timmy and Dee XOX

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

Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for being part of our big special day, for your professionalism, enthusiasm and organisation. Thank you for rolling with us with our lack of rehearsal and allowing us to go with the flow naturally on the day. It was just how we wanted it relaxed, giggly and fun. That really shone through and we received so many compliments on how relaxed and unique our ceremony was. You have a beautiful spirit and we can’t wait to see you again soon to catch up with you to show you our video.  Warmest regards Nicole, Rubin and Kidletts

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Lynda & Carl Currumbin Beach Currumbin on the Southern Gold Coast
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 and passionate about her work then look no further than this wonderful woman. Thanks again.

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. Thank you so much Marilyn you are a gift from above and we are so lucky that we had you a part of our very special day” Kylie & Kristian

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Ray & Suzanne from Canberra - Wedding 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

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

My new husband and I can highly recommend Marilyn as a celebrant for anyone who wants a ceremony filled with originality and that personal touch which made our day so beautiful. Marilyn guided us through, giving us suggestions from her years of experience which was really helpful because I really had no idea where to start. She was always available to answer any questions I had and was so open to what we wanted for our wedding. Our day was perfect, the ceremony was everything I had ever wanted, thank you Marilyn.

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

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 upmost 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!

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

Marry Me MarilynLove Letter from Rebecca & Kim's Wedding at their home in Labrador on the Northern Gold Coast
When Kim and I decided to set a date for our wedding, I thought the first thing to do was to find a marriage celebrant. I “Googled” Marriage celebrants on the Gold Coast and very quickly came upon Marilyn’s website “Marry Me Marilyn”. That was it for us, we thought what a great website, very informative and we found just what we needed. So we met Marilyn and we had found  our celebrant. Marilyn gave us all the info we needed and we put together a wonderful ceremony. Kim and I have two children each from previous relationships and we wanted to include our children in the wedding somehow so Marilyn put together a wonderful “Sand Ceremony” especially tailored for us. Each person had a different colour sand and we each took turns at pouring it into the special heart shaped vase we had. Each colour representing a variety of traits and values that each person brought to the relationship. As all our children are older or grown, this worked extremely well and the children really appreciated being included. Thank you Marilyn for making our day so special. Bec & Kim xox

Hi Marilyn, Greg and I are in Thailand enjoying an amazing honeymoon. Over the past few days we have enjoyed reflecting on what an incredible day our wedding was. We would both like to thank you dearly for all of your help and guidance through planning our ceremony....it truly was the most perfect ceremony. The ceremony was so personal, it truly reflected on the incredible love and friendship that Greg & I share. The way you planned the ceremony was just as Greg & I had wanted and you helped to make this part of our wedding day perfect. The atmosphere created by you was amazing. Both Greg & I felt like there was no one other than ourselves in the room...we were both so caught up in the magic of the moment. All of our family and friends have commented that our ceremony was the best wedding ceremony that they have ever attended, so personal and touching. Greg would also like to thank you for helping to calm his nerves as he was waiting for me to arrive. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day so perfect! Love Mr & Mrs Stockill xoxo Thank You to Corne & Lara Photography - Gold Coast for the beautiful photos of Sarah & Greg

Hi Marilyn, Mike and I would like to say a huge thank you for marrying us on 9 September 2016. Initially we were worried that we would have difficulty writing our love story and vows but with your guidance through drafts and the tips and tricks on your website, we couldn't be happier with the end result. It was a ceremony that was unique to us and we had nothing but great feedback from our guests on the day. The love story was definitely one of the favourite parts of our ceremony for both us and our guests (many of whom learnt more about our relationship on the day :)) Thank you for being sincere, approachable and efficient and thank you for guiding us and helping us put together a ceremony that captured our love for each other perfectly. We are also very grateful for the beautiful copy of our ceremony, it is keepsake we will treasure forever. We have already, and will continue to, recommend you to family and friends. Kind regards, Samantha & Michael xoxo

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

I first found Marilyn on the celebrant's website and chose her out of the hundreds of other celebrants. I received a call back from Marilyn within the first couple of hours of emailing her.  After our first phone conversation, I knew she was the perfect celebrant for us. Marilyn exuded warmth and kindness and was so easy to talk to, and always showed a genuine interest in helping us create our simple, but personalised ceremony.  We couldn't of been happier with choosing Marilyn to marry us and I  have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in need of a celebrant.  Thank you so much Marilyn for making our ceremony perfect for us.

Thank you Marilyn for helping us organise our special day. We opted for a very casual beach wedding at North Burleigh with close friends & family and Marilyn was very helpful with choosing the perfect location. On the day the weather was very unpredictable and we are so glad we had a celebrant like Marilyn who was flexible with our choices and worked with us to have the day we really wanted. It all worked out well in the end and we couldn’t be happier with the service Marilyn gave us. Thanks Bill & Tanya McLean

Just as the mixed grains of sand can never be separated, so too will the couple be joined together in marriage/commitment and never separated. The sand colours can be coordinated with your home décor, chosen based on colours you love personally or for any other special reason that is meaningful to you. At the end of the ceremony, the vase is taken home and sits atop a shelf, a table or a mantle, beautifully symbolizing the start of your new life together.
