Marilyn is honestly the most amazing celebrant, she had Kayla and I laughing and smiling from the very first meeting we had. Not only did she help us create the most perfect ceremony but she helped us get through the nerves and worries of the day. She really makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. If anyone has trouble with nerves or public speaking, then please choose Marilyn because she knows exactly how to make the worries go away, to teach you how to be in the moment and to show you how even the imperfect parts of the wedding can make for the best memories. After the ceremony everyone told Kayla and I how fun Marilyn was. Marilyn we can’t thank you enough!! Love Kayla + Justin xoxo

Love Letter Giovanna + Kevin Wedding Parkwood Village Parkwood Gold Coast
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

Love Letter Kelly + Ruben Wings Hinterland Retreat Tallai Central Gold Coast
If we started this testimonial, words cannot express how beautiful our wedding was, then we would be wrong. Words CAN express our wedding day and those words were the words that you prepared and wrote especially for us Marilyn. Our wedding guests and the both of us, have still not stopped talking about how special our ceremony was that you prepared for us. It was a perfect day, and if we could have it all over again we would not change any of it. We cannot thank you enough Marilyn for your kindness, patience, generosity, time and help.  You seem to have this special in-sight into knowing exactly what to say and offer, and nothing at all was too much trouble for you. You made us feel so welcome from the first time meeting you to feeling so comfortable on our wedding day we both felt that we had known you forever.  So in our words thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are truly such a gifted person and fantastic asset to the wedding industry.  We would recommend you to anybody considering getting married.  We cannot thank you enough, Keep up the fantastic work. Love Ruben and Kelly xoxox

The entire process of planning the ceremony, filing paperwork and rehearsing with Marilyn was all smooth sailing and so enjoyable! She was very generous and flexible with her time. The ceremony was so beautiful, special, and tailor made to our wishes. We would recommend her to anyone who wants a unique and one of a kind ceremony!! Love Jonny and Amy xoxo

Love Letter Sylvia + Christopher Wedding The Courthouse Restaurant Cleveland Point Redlands
Wow, I can believe it has been two weeks since our wedding and I am writing this letter, so you may know Chris and I think you are the best wedding celebrant in the world! – I think the wedding ceremony, is one of the most important parts of a wedding, where the love, for a bride and groom is declared between themselves, family and friends. I wanted a ceremony, something that was personalised and a ceremony that would captivate our family and friends, not have “just another boring ceremony”. I found the best wedding celebrant in the world – Marilyn – on the internet, and after viewing her website, made phone contact, found her to be helpful, informative and friendly! The next step was meeting up in person and the best I can describe, meeting Marilyn is like meeting a friend, she has genuine warmth and instantly makes you feel at ease – after a cup of coffee, laughter – we got down to the business side of things, where she explains clearly, the different types of ceremonies, giving you as much input as you wish to make, or if you are a busy person – how little. Our ceremony was personally tailored for us, on what we wanted ( Marilyn is a listener and gives great advice and has available amazing resources) – the planning of the ceremony consisted with sending to and fro emails with drafts, (since I wanted a lottt of input, there were lots of emails – no added expense) until we had it just perfect.  Marilyn makes you feel special, as if your wedding is the only wedding she is planning – in fact her attention to detail, would be, as if it was her own wedding. The day itself was beautiful and Marilyn looked beautiful (she consults in colours and what we would like her to wear – she has an extensive wardrobe) as you can imagine, a celebrant is featured in wedding photos! Our true love story and weaving of other magical ceremonies within, had our guests in tears and truly mesmerized from beginning to end.  Marilyn herself delivered the ceremony with meaning – each word she spoke was hung on to by the guests…as she put in 110% effort into creating a feeling of love and wonderment. Now I must include this funny bit, though we all wish our wedding ceremony to go as planned..at times, it doesn't..and the best man and ring bearer forgot the rings – in the car…nothing fazed Marilyn, who asked for the rings to be found ( amidst flurry of car key looking) then proceeded with another part of our ceremony, until the rings were found (some 10 minutes later!).. looking back, the situation was handled with calm, humour and I am sure added to the enjoyment for our guests. Hence if there is a bride to be reading this now, stop thinking, pick up the telephone, it is the best decision you will ever make! And your wedding will be – as you wish it to be…….and hassle free. So, I end this testimonial, with a heart felt thank you to Marilyn, from  Chris and myself, for we see you now, not just as a “celebrant” but a friend who made our day very special, from beginning to the end. Love Chris & Sylvia

Love Letter Lynda + Carl WeddingCurrumbin 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 and passionate about her work then look no further than this wonderful woman. Thanks again. Lynda and Carl Howard xx

Love Letter Wedding Kim + John Currumbin Beach
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

Love Letter Ursula + David Wedding at Boomerang Farm in Mudgeeraba Gold Coast
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

 Love Letter Danielle + Neil Wedding O'Reilly's Canungra Valley Vineyard Lamington National Park
Hi Marilyn, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the work you did in putting our ceremony together. It was so personalised and it made us laugh the whole way through the ceremony. We loved it and everyone kept saying how great it was! If it wasn’t for your advice and letter, I don’t think we would have been granted the shortening of time to be married legally, so we will be forever grateful that we were able to marry on our chosen date (despite contacting you only 3 weeks beforehand). Neil and I certainly didn’t have many expectations when we thought about our ceremony, it was always about the reception but now that we’ve done it, I realise how the ceremony was just as fun and I will never forget it. You made it truly special so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Love Neil and Danielle xoxoxo

I n 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.

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 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!

Love Note 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”

Love Letter Katrina + Brad Wedding Hard Rock Cafe in Surfers Paradise Gold Coast
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 did a fabulous job on our special day. All our research was done via the internet as we live in the NT. We didn’t get to meet people in person everything had to be done over the phone or email, and there were so many wonderful people to choose from but Marilyn stood out for us due to some of her actions and different beliefs. Marilyn stood by and guided us through the whole process, it can become very overwhelming and she did a wonderful job. On the day some of our guests pointed out what a great job she did. One statement Marilyn made just before our big day was “when you get to the end of the aisle take a breath and know that I have it all under control” and she sure did. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance throughout the whole process Marilyn x x much love Jayne, Dane and Cooper

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

Love Letter Tanya + Daniel Wedding The Towers Chevron Renaissance Surfers Paradise Gold Coast
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.

As soon as I came across your website I knew I had found the celebrant for us!

Your easy going attitude and nothings too hard nature really put us at ease. You were more than just a celebrant!

Love Letter Esther + Steve's Wedding Woorim Beach Bribie Island
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

"We had no idea of what had to be done for a wedding so the emails and phone calls from Marilyn were really helpful as we were planning long distance from Darwin.

She gave us a Wedding Resource Pack and heaps of choices in her online resources that we were happy with. The ceremony was perfect and we felt really comfortable with Marilyn. The length of the ceremony was perfect and the ceremony booklets she made for us were gorgeous, we loved them! The wedding fees were excellent and affordable.

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 :-)

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 xoxo

Love Letter Malinda + Darcey Wedding Tallebudgera Community Hall Tallebudgera Valley
Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for everything you did to make our day so lovely. Everyone loved the ceremony! Our favourite response was "that was the first wedding I've been to that didn't leave me terrified of marriage" Ha! We were so happy with the way everything turned out. We loved how the ceremony moved from light and fun to deep and moving. We felt connected and present throughout the ceremony. The way you spoke and brought our story to life was perfect and we really enjoyed it. We've had so many comments from family and friends, letting us know how much they loved hearing our Love Story. People said it was relaxed, genuine and heartfelt and many said it was the best wedding they'd been to. The wedding was pulled together in such a short time. We also had the challenge of organising it from the USA. Being able to Skype with you and email you as much as we needed was fantastic and you always got back to us quickly and addressed all our concerns. You were respectful and accommodating with all our values and wishes for our wedding, allowing us the space to make it our own, whilst providing us with many resources and suggestions when we were stuck. The day was crazy! It poured with rain so we had to switch from the park to a nearby hall. Our families have told us that you were extremely helpful with the last minute set up,  letting them know the best way to organise the aisle and the circle for the ceremony. You also calmed us down when we arrived and allowed us space and time to ground and connect before we began. We would recommend you to anyone planning a wedding and couldn't be happier with the way our day turned out. Thank you so much Marilyn. Love Malinda and Darcey x

Love Letter Nicole + Craig Wedding Avalon Wedding Gardens North Tamborine Mountain
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 secret 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 xoxox

Kasey & James Married at Mantra on Salt with Marry Me Marilyn

Love Letter Kasey + James Wedding Mantra on Salt Kingscliff Northern NSW
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 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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcw5UHyf4bA

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

Love Letter Kathy + Martin Wedding Cedar Creek Lodges Mt Tamborine Gold Coast
Dear Marilyn, Thank you so much for being such an integral part of our day – and for the 9 months leading up to it. Your energy, knowledge, guidance, patience and sense of humour are just part of the reason why we fell in love with you and we are so glad we were led to you.  From the writing, rewriting, and re-rewriting of our vows; to the advice on remaining grounded, centred and within our bubble; you were there as our sounding board and what I would also class as Therapist on one or two occasions. All of this gave us the opportunity to relax and to focus on each other and even the advice you gave for the other members of the wedding party was a godsend. Your professionalism is second to none – you were organised from start to finish, reminding us of all the little things that we needed to do that we no doubt would have forgotten. Thank you from the depth our hearts and souls for your presence on our Wedding day; we had so many guests comment on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was. That is because we were lucky enough to find somebody who not only listened to what we wanted; but who also ‘felt’ us and resonated with us. That’s a rare thing. With love, gratitude and respect, Martin & Kathy Sweeting xx

Marilyn was Absolutely Amazing to work with, and far exceeded our expectations. She spent time getting to know us leading up to the wedding, offering guidance and support along the way which helped make our day so special and personal. The whole ceremony was relaxed, casual and fun from beginning to end which was exactly what we had hoped for. Marilyn is a true professional with a passion for what she does, and it shows. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant, but Marilyn was far more than that, and we are thrilled that she was part of our special day. Love Alison & Roland x

Love Letter Lucy + John’s Viking Norse Wedding Woodlands of Marburg Queensland
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

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

re Marry Me Marilyn

Love Letter Fatima + Gordon's Wedding Point Cartwright Sunshine Coast
We met Marilyn by serendipity we progressed through the legals and just ‘the overall’ of how a Marriage Ceremony falls into place. Marilyn helped us every step of the way with the vision Gordon and I had for the Wedding – especially with the writing of the Ceremony, which was extremely important to us.  Nothing was ever too much for her and she continually offered numerous suggestions and resources – and always with a laugh in her voice.  Gordon and I were married by Marilyn on 20th June at Point Cartwright Beach.  Yes, the rain that threatened all week stayed away whilst all our guests assembled on the beach, but the moment the Ceremony started, it poured! Fortunately, everyone had umbrellas and we felt most blessed by the rain, but from start to finish, Marilyn held us together by her professionalism, strength and grace. In short, I would recommend Marilyn to ANYBODY wanting someone as gracious and as professional as Marilyn.  If you want someone ‘REAL’ and someone who truly gives their ALL, Marilyn is absolutely ONE CELEBRANT IN A MILLION! With Gratitude Marilyn! Fatima & Gordon xoxox

Lesley Point Cartwright Sunshine Coast
You performed an outstanding ceremony in very trying circumstances – it was just wonderful.  Fatima and Gordy were thrilled and delighted with you and their service. I must say to you that you did a splendid job in your wonderful calm way!  You conducted the ceremony with a lot of class and love and that shows through.  All the feedback from everyone has been nothing but positive.

Dear Marilyn, you delivered our wedding ceremony with such SINCERE LOVE, BEAUTIFUL ENERGY, ENTHUSIASM and of course a little HUMOUR. We have had so many people compliment you on such a moving ceremony. What can I say… no words can really describe how much we appreciated all your help, support and care in  the preparation of our wedding, and of the actual wedding day. When we first met at the wedding expo last year, Chantelle and I knew we found the perfect Marriage Celebrant for the day, something  just clicked between us. When we got together for the rehearsal, I left your place relaxed and at ease, knowing you had if all under control. I have referred you onto my best friends daughter. You are a beautiful person, and I sincerely thank you for helping our wedding be a magical day for the us and everyone who was there!  Again, THANK YOU so very, very much.  With warm regards Chantelle & Ashley xoxo

Love Letter Jacinta + Kelly Wedding Aloha Waters Broadbeach Waters Gold Coast
Marry Me Marilyn, the best wedding celebrant & friend ever!!!!!! We chose to elope to the Gold Coast from Tasmania and nearly decided against it due to all the hassles of organising the whole event that was until I made contact with Marilyn Verschuure. Marilyn made everything so incredibly easy for us and I’m happy to say it was one of the best days of our lives, really wish we could do it all again :) Marilyn thoroughly explained the whole process and worked with us in synergy to achieve what we wanted and was happy for us to change things to reflect our personalities and beliefs. We ended up choosing a hand fasting ceremony which was amazingly personal and enabled our children to get involved as well, it went so beautifully. Marilyn helped us organise and explained all the legalities without fuss (we had a couple of things that needed extra attention) all sorted with Marilyn’s help. We would highly recommend Marilyn Verschuure to anyone who is looking to make their big day that extra bit special. We were honoured to have you as our celebrant Marilyn :) Thank you for enabling me to marry my soul mate and best friend, I am forever grateful! Jacinta x We were really happy with the handfasting cords you made for us thank you, we will treasure them forever xx P.S. See you in a few years for our renewal of vows :)

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 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!  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 and 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 xoxo

Love Letter Michelle + Peter Wedding Penthouse Soul Surfers Paradise
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 xoxo

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

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.

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

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

Love Letter Jessica + Luke Wedding SkyPoint Q1 Surfers Paradise Gold Coast
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

Love Letter Carla + Joel Wedding Surfers Paradise Beach Gold Coast
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

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

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

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. Thanks again, love Tanya & Steve x Many thanks to Leigh Warner Photography for his awesome photos of Tanya & Steve



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

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

Love Letter Pooja + Harshil Wedding Parkwood Village Gold Coast
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

Hi Marilyn, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OUR ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL WEDDING CEREMONY, it was SO PERSONAL TO US.

Down to every little change in every draft that you made on our behalf, made it just that little bit more special every time. So thank you very much again Marilyn you were excellent on the wedding day. You are so very experienced and it was like you were a friend of ours the way you spoke during the ceremony.

Marilyn delivered 100% on giving us the Wedding with the Wow Factor and we would happily and highly recommend Marilyn to everybody. We were very lucky the day we picked Marilyn to be our marriage celebrant. From the first point of contact we could tell Marilyn was the Ultimate Professional who only wanted to ensure our day was going to be 'special' for us. Marilyn assisted us with writing our wedding vows so we captured the moment perfectly as well as adding the 'fun' element which was a great hit on the day. When we had the rehearsal with Marilyn we knew then that everything was going to be PERFECT on the day (which it was!). Her tips to make sure our wedding ceremony went smoothly were also appreciated as there are many things you don't think of. Marilyn is truly a lovely lady who we were very fortunate to have the pleasure of meeting to help us with our special day. Love Eliza & Shayne Milner xoxo

Love Letter Kathy + Martin Wedding Cedar Creek Lodges Mt Tamborine Gold Coast Queensland
Dear Marilyn. Thank you so much for being such an integral part of our day – and for the 9 months leading up to it. Your energy, knowledge, guidance, patience and sense of humour are just part of the reason why we fell in love with you and we are so glad we were led to you.  From the writing, rewriting, and re-rewriting of our vows; to the advice on remaining grounded, centered and within our bubble; you were there as our sounding board and what I would also class as Therapist on one or two occasions. All of this gave us the opportunity to relax and to focus on each other and even the advice you gave for the other members of the wedding party was a godsend. Your professionalism is second to none – you were organised from start to finish, reminding us of all the little things that we needed to do that we no doubt would have forgotten. Thank you from the depth our hearts and souls for your presence on our Wedding day; we had so many guests comment on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was. That is because we were lucky enough to find somebody who not only listened to what we wanted; but who also ‘felt’ us and resonated with us. That’s a rare thing. With love, gratitude and respect, Martin & Kathy Sweeting xx

Banthip & Sai married at The Lakeside Hut Gold Coast Botanic Gardens Benowa with Marry Me Marilyn Celebrant

Love Letter Banthip + Sai Wedding The Lakeside Hut Gold Coast Botanic Gardens Benowa
Marilyn is the best marriage celebrant in the world everything was totally perfect for our wedding ceremony, she did an excellent job in every detail from start to finish. From the first time I contacted Marilyn to after the wedding she was extremely helpful as she is such a kind, cheerful and warm person. I felt like I had known her for many years and she has such a great soul on her. Her celebrant service to us was totally outstanding and so accomplished as she always strives for perfection. Marilyn wrote an brilliant wedding ceremony for us with a beautiful touching poem that brought tears to our eyes that remembered my recently departed brother in law. Marilyn included the Rod Nam Sang Shell Ceremony that celebrated my wife’s Thai heritage and her mother and father began the Shell Ceremony with a water blessing as in the Thai Tradition then the family followed with their blessings. I want to thank Marilyn so much for helping me with my personal wedding vows for the big day 10/10/2013. When I think of my vows on the day it brings tears to my eyes and I cannot believe how powerful my vows were, especially as they came from my heart. I normally never cry but during my vows the tears welled up and I tried not to cry. Thanks to Marilyn also for helping Banthip with her vows as they were so beautiful. I'm very happy and impressed with all the work and effort Marilyn put in for us, it was spot on. Marilyn’s work is totally outstanding, professional and touching with extraordinary attention to detail. We were very lucky to have her as our Marriage Celebrant as she fulfilled all of our needs and expectations and more. Banthip and I love your work and we thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect! We will both remember this very special day for the rest of our lives. Kind regards,  Sai Huynh & Banthip Butprasit xoxo

Love Letter Kendall + Daniel Handfasting Commitment Everton Park Brisbane Queensland
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

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 & Kidletts.

Marry Me Marilyn married Scott & Leah Coolibah Downs Chapel Nerang Gold Coast in a tradtional wedding

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.

We feel so lucky to have found Marilyn as our celebrant! We met Marilyn after the celebrant we booked cancelled on us and as things go in life it turned out to be a great stroke of luck. From the moment we spoke to her we felt at ease, and the moment we met her we knew that we wanted her as our celebrant. Marilyn is very professional, nothing was a problem, her ideas were very helpful.  Even though the weather was disastrous and the venue was changed Marilyn still made it a bright and cheerful event.  We had a beautiful ceremony Marilyn and some laugher too, thank you so much for all your effort and patience in making a wet day into something so beautiful. We have already recommended Marilyn to friends. Love Karen & Stephen Azzopardi.
