Marry Me Marilyn was amazing both as a Wedding Celebrant and tour guide through all of the legalities of tying the knot! Our plans were significantly altered by COVID for our ceremony by going from relatively large to just 6 people. Marilyn had fantastic ideas for the larger event which unfortunately couldn't be realised, but she adapted and made the more intimate event as special as it could be. Marilyn was great to work with and we would recommend her for any style of marriage ceremony! Love Maggie & Nick xoxo

Love Letter Rebecca + Jefferson Wedding Villa Sanchea Currumbin Beach
From the moment I met you Marilyn I knew you were the perfect choice for our wedding. You are so thoughtful with your words and really tailored our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. You were absolutely amazing and truly everything I ever wished for in a celebrant. Everything about the ceremony was how I had hoped and dreamed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I would give you 5 million stars if I could. It is so beautiful to see a person channelling the light and purpose of their lives which you most certainly are. My family also thought you were incredible. Thank you again for making our day so special xxx

Love Letter Lisa + Alan Wedding Luke's Bluff O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat Gold Coast Hinterland
Dear Marilyn,We wanted to express our sincere thanks for adding your special magic to our wedding ceremony up at O'Reilly's on 3rd May.  You understood that our ceremony was as much about creating our family, as it was uniting us as husband and wife - and we thank you for helping make that happen.  We are so thrilled we took your suggestion to write our love story and vows, and we were so happy with the way you wove our story through the ceremony.  It was so personal - so perfect - just for us!  We have had so many of our guests tell us how much they enjoyed our ceremony, both the words spoken and the way you delivered them (there was barely a dry eye amongst our guests!).  We wanted a celebrant who was warm and vibrant and you were the perfect choice! Thanks so much again. Take care, Lisa & Alan Grieve xoxoxo

Hi Marilyn, We would like to thank you so much for being our wedding celebrant. I knew from the very first day I met you at the O'Reilly's wedding open day that you would make our day perfect. From the very start you were always on top of everything with paperwork and advice about our ceremony and the different options that were available. After our meeting you were able to put together a proposed ceremony for us based on our personalities and what you learnt from casually talking with us during the meeting and it was spot on. Your online resources also helped us put that little bit extra into our ceremony. The ceremony rehearsal really helped to calm my nerves and again you gave us some really handy tips to remember on the day. Finally, on the day you were amazing the way you presented our ceremony, you were a calming focus for me and really brought us into the moment and the guests loved the small details you helped us bring into the ceremony. Thank you so much for everything you did for us, it is definitely a day we won’t forget. You were perfect…don't change a thing about your service! Melissa & Brenton x

To the Amazing Marilyn, Matt and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. From my very first phone call with you I knew you were the one who would marry us as I had goose bumps talking to you. With your nurturing nature you set my soul at ease that Matt and I were in the very best of hands. You tailored our day to perfection, listening to our needs, wants and desires and transformed them into a spectacular ceremony. The whole process from our initial meeting to our big day was seamless and stress free, just what a bride to be needs. Marilyn you are fabulous and have so many unique ceremony ideas and are one of the most beautiful souls we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We will be recommending you to all we know.

Hi Marilyn, We would just like to thank you so much for all of your help in the past few months. You've always been so quick in answering all of our questions concerning the wedding ceremony. The way you conducted the ceremony was spectacular and we could not have chosen a better celebrant! You were truly a delight to meet and work with and we really will not be able to thank you enough for making our ceremony so unique, fun and intimate. Wishing you all the best for the future, Rachel and Alister.

Love Letter Alex + Jonesy Wedding Glengariff Historic Estate in Dayboro North Brisbane
Marilyn, I can't thank you enough for making our special day so much fun. We are both children at heart, sometimes I think I married a teenager but you brought out that easy going side of us in a ceremony to suit! You came up with some beautiful ideas involving the people we cared about most and you always had an answer to the silliest of questions. I could go on and on about how efficient, reliable and fun you are but in one word you are Amazing :) Thank you again for turning such a daunting task into a pleasure!!! Three cheers for Marilyn!!!  Love Alex & Jonesy Xxx

We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding ceremony and honestly would've changed anything. Timmy and I both believe you were the reason everything went so smoothly.

Love Letter Deirdre + Tim Wedding 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

Dear Marilyn, we just want to say a BIG THANK YOU here for your GREAT JOB! You are the best and the ceremony is as perfect as we expected, only better! We were very impressed by your lovely and uplifting energy when the first time we met you, and we are so lucky to choose you as our wedding celebrant. You are not just a professional, creative, patient wedding celebrant, you are also a beautiful lady with a heart full of love and warmth, and thank you so much for sharing your love and warmth with everyone at our big day. We had a perfect wedding, friends and family just couldn't stop talking about it, and thank you for being a very important part of this perfect wedding (btw, the colour of your blouse even perfectly matches with the groom's suit!!:) Well done!)!

Love Letter Scott + Leah Wedding Coolibah Downs Chapel Nerang Northern 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’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.

Love Letter Elga + Eriks Handfasting 7 Day Latvian Wedding Oskars Burleigh Heads Gold Coast
Marilyn thank you so much for the most unique, inspiring & magical wedding ceremony ever! I was very nervous about the ceremony since it was a second marriage for me and neither of us were spring chickens... We wanted something that would combine a bit of our shared heritage, a bit of tradition, and a bit of fun, but something that was completely individual (as all brides do!). Marilyn managed to incorporate all of this into a ceremony that was relatively short, witty and completely unique. She answered all of our questions, and didn't mind my many long, quirky email conversations that it took, to get things 'just right'. It was important to me that we include my (adult) daughter, whom was helping plan the wedding, despite living in the US, and Marilyn did that - via emails and during the brief meeting before the wedding - taking her input, to help with the 'personal stories' aspect of the planning. Even when the skies opened up and the rain came down, Marilyn incorporated that, into our ceremony to take the pressure off and really make the day special..... Thank you Marilyn! Love Elga & Eriks xoxo

Living in Melbourne and getting married in Queensland had potential challenges but finding Marilyn helped smooth the way. Marilyn made us feel relaxed and reassured that our day would be perfect. She offered ideas of locations for our special day, helped us with our ceremony and provided support throughout the planning and especially on our wedding day. We had regular contact with her via Skype or email; she was there whenever we needed her. Our wedding included the sand ceremony as we blended our two families; this was a special part of the wedding. When we finally met Marilyn it was like meeting an old friend. Our wedding was awesome and Marilyn made everyone feel relaxed. Our guests commented that is was one of the best weddings they had been to and they felt a part of the ceremony too. We would recommend Marilyn to everyone. Love Tiana & Andrew xoxoxo

The words you created for us were PERFECT IN EVERY WAY and you made everything so easy especially as our English is not so well yet.

My partner and I have approached this lovely and kindly marriage celebrant “Marilyn” whom is very nice and polite to greet both of us for the first appointment with her. She is very knowledgeable of being marriage celebrant but also carry out important message to us as my partner and I always have a lot’s of questions to ask. We have told Marilyn that we would like to have a simple but legal wedding ceremony and because we are from overseas and both us immigrant to Australia where we met each other and decide to get marry with each other and also we have planned a big and important wedding party oversea therefore we would like to have simple wedding ceremony and Marilyn is happy to be our simple but legal wedding celebrant. And as our most of friends were oversea and we don’t have witness to be part of our wedding ceremony and Marilyn is very kind to help us to find witness for us during ceremony. I really appreciated of Marilyn’s job they bring my partner and I enjoy our wedding ceremony and this is happened all at Marilyn’s house and this is unforgettable memory that my official wife and I have. And after all thank you so much for all Marilyn who made this all happen and my dream come true.  You are the best marriage celebrant who I recommend and always kind and professional!  Yen-Yu & SuJung xoxo

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

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

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

Love Letter Gemma + Sean Wedding Santai Resort Salt Kingscliff NSW
“Sean and I chose Marilyn to be our celebrant because we liked the fact she was spiritual and ‘real’. We didn’t want the traditional, standard ceremony and we couldn’t have been happier with what Marilyn created for us. Not only did we have a personal introduction ‘love story’, but Marilyn also created a beautiful Handfasting ceremony, which was something unique and special. Her assistance throughout the whole process, especially when we were so busy, was extremely helpful and we greatly appreciate it. Also, the enormous volume of material she has available for you to use is invaluable. Everyone can find something to suit their personality. We highly recommend Marilyn’s services to anyone who wants a personalised, professional and romantic ceremony. Thank you Marilyn, Gemma and Sean.”

Love Letter Atanas + Chantel Wedding Monterey Keys
Marilyn, Thank-you so much for the wonderful job you did for our ceremony, we loved how you personalised it for us. Without a doubt the most perfect day of our lives. Held at the parents house in the garden made for a intimate celebration. Marilyn was paramount in making this possible. From the outset Marilyn was wonderful, during our first initial meeting Marilyn welcomed us into her home and built immediate rapport. Marilyn walked us through the steps of a ceremony helping us to personalise our own. She took our love story and incorporated it into the most unique and beautiful ceremony. Marilyn made herself available to us at all times, even coming to our home. Marilyn not only was our celebrant she was part of our marriage celebration, she was our guest. We cant wait to see what she has in store for the celebration of when we start a family. Thanks again Marilyn and we would love to have you come do a baby naming ceremony with us when we are ready to start a family. All the best.

David says his Traditonal Vows to Vicki at the Wings Hinterland Retreat on the Gold Coast with Celebrant Marilyn Verschuure from Marry Me Marilyn

Love Letter Vicki + David Wedding Wings Hinterland Retreat Tallai
We live in Brisbane and decided to get married on the Gold Coast. It was easiest for us to contact celebrants via email. Marilyn was the only one who called to discuss our wedding plans and seemed just as enthusiastic and interested in our day as we were. Even on the phone, before meeting in person, she had suggestions regarding our day and made us feel at ease. A simple, no fuss ceremony is what we had wished for and Marilyn was very helpful with various ideas - some of which we didn't even consider before our first meeting. The literature that we could access via Marilyn's website regarding the ceremony structure and content was extensive. In fact, we couldn't of planned our ceremony without it. Marilyn was also there at all stages of our planning if we needed her help. On our wedding day, Marilyn was extremely professional and made our ceremony fun and enjoyable. She made us feel relaxed, which on your wedding day is very important! Marilyn truly cares about your special day and we have no hesitation in recommending Marilyn as your celebrant.
David and I would like to thank you so much for your services on our wedding day. We both thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony and the entire day, though it went too fast!. Vicki & Dave (Vicki & David requested that I wear red to match their Gerbras :-)

Dear Marilyn, A quick email to express our thanks for your contribution to our special day.  From the very moment we met up with you to discuss the wedding, to the time you pronounced us as husband and wife ....... PERFECT!  Cameron and I wanted a fun energy, excitement and a splash of love at our ceremony. 
You provided all of it and more, with fantastic guidance throughout writing our ceremony.  You kept us calm during the collaborative process and from the very first moment we met you, you were welcoming, informative, relaxed and genuinely interested in our story. We knew you would do your best to make our day unique and special. Communication was easy and quick and on the day you mingled well with our guests and once again, guided the whole congregation through a wonderful ceremony. You looked stunning on our day, you captured the emotion, the excitement, the fun and the casual relaxed feeling that Cameron and I wanted during our ceremony. We have had so many comments about how beautiful and interesting the ceremony was, so once again thank you for bringing a touch of glamour, laughter and more love to our memorable event. We thank you for your time, patience and professional approach. The day wouldn’t have been as colourful without your contribution. From our point of view it was AWESOME!

Peter & Kristy Seaworld Resort Main Beach Gold Coast Queensland

Love Letter Peter + Kristy Wedding 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 ;-)

I remember standing up there during the ceremony and all I could think was "this is happening, this is real, savour it, savour it!"  You advised us at our rehearsal how to be fully present to make our experience something we would remember in detail so it didn’t go by in a blur.....it worked! We are both so grateful to you for your warmth and your humour. You made our wedding day the most wonderful experience! Love Greer & Glen xoxox

Love Letter Ray + Suzanne Wedding 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

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

No ask is ever too great! She even fitted in with us having a wedge tailed eagle as a ring bearer.

Both Gerry and I would like to offer you our sincere thanks for all your help with the preparations of our wedding, especially as we live in London, England and had to arrange everything from here. As soon as we had “met” you via Skype, we knew that you were going to be the right person to marry us. We would never have thought of the beautiful ideas you gave us, i.e. the rings blessings, the rose exchange and the butterflies release and instead of our wedding being stressful, which most of the time they are, it was the most relaxing day. We have had lots of lovely messages from our guests saying how wonderful the ceremony was. We shall never forget it and thank you so much once again. Love Brenda & Gerry xoxox

Dear Marilyn I contacted you after my best friend Brenda Norman and her future husband Gerry McCaffrey also my great friend, said that you were arranging their wedding in Australia and she lives in the UK. She told me how helpful you were and sorting out the venue etc.  As I was unable to attend the wedding I wanted to see if there was any way I could get some flowers and a poem to them on their wedding day as a surprise and know that I was thinking about them. So I thought of you and emailed you with this idea. You emailed me back immediately and offered to read the poem for me and offered to have flowers sent to your home and you would give them to the Bride and Groom. You were so kind and helpful and obliging it was lovely.  It was like have a friend in Australia helping me. Further emails sent and returned and you came across as such a lovely person.  I am so pleased that you are organising my friend’s wedding.  I am sure it will be a day to remember forever. Thank you so much for being so helpful and kind. Regards Nicoletta Pascale xoxox

If you are looking for a STRESS FREE EXPERIENCE WITH A WARM AND DELIGHTFUL CELEBRANT for your wedding on the Gold Coast WE CAN HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARILYN VERSCHUURE AT MARRY ME MARILYN. Marilyn provided a seamless experience, both on the day and of equal importance, in the rehearsal. Marilyn is a consummate professional, but not in a stuffy or bossy way which the word “professional” sometimes makes people think of. Marilyn made us feel at ease and drew on her years of experience to anticipate our needs and provide all the options and solutions we requested. Marilyn’s resources regarding options for “vows” and the order of the ceremony are comprehensive and this also helped us feel calm and excited rather than alone and confused in the process. We also appreciated the little touches which Marilyn provided, right down to our staging during the ceremony so that the photographers had access to the best shots of us as a couple. Yours Faithfully Brian Clark & Karren Kohnke x

We both HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARILYN to be a part of your big day, most especially if you're uncomfortable or confused about how to approach such an exciting new step in your life. When we discovered Marilyn's website, we definitely felt a sense of assurance that Marilyn was not only passionate about her job, but approachable too. My partner and I were obviously fretting to plan such a big event in a short period of time, but Marilyn was incredibly helpful and understanding and responded to our concerns promptly. In the end, the wedding which included a beautiful American Indian Handfasting was definitely a great success. We felt comfortable to be ourselves on such a stressful day and we are incredibly grateful to have had such a caring celebrant to help us accomplish so much. Thank you again for everything Marilyn!

Love Letter Katy + Nick Haines Wedding Burleigh Beach from Christchurch, New Zealand
Are you thinking about getting married on the Gold Coast and live overseas? if so...You must hire Marilyn!!!
My husband Nick and I can't tell you the amount of times we have told people, "hiring Marilyn as our celebrant from NZ was the best money we spent on our wedding...full stop!" By chance we stumbled across Marilyn on Google and never looked back. I cant say that we were overly demanding about our ceremony, but we certainly knew what we didn't want! Trying to sort everything out from a different country was far more challenging than we expected. Thank God for the Internet,our record of communication with Marilyn must read like a novel, but yet Marilyn never tired of our excuses for not getting back to her in time, was always patient, professional and diligent, and helped organise and remind us of very important things that we might otherwise have forgotten or overlooked. And finally....we arrived! After months of helpful emails at no extra expense, we met Marilyn who was of course the lovely lady just as much in person who had helped us through all the snags (no matter how hard you try they always happen) of our planning. The ceremony was PERFECT !!! Marilyn made some last minute spontaneous touches that proved her experience in such things,that just MADE the day. I can't help but think that Marilyn is just very intuitive and naturally gifted about knowing what makes the perfect day for different people. We of course highly recommend her to make your special day ....very special in a unique way, just for you. Take the hassle out of your wedding planning now, and talk to Marilyn..its the best wedding decision you will make! Katy & Nick Haines, Christchurch.

Love Letter John + Ngo Wedding Boomerang Farm Mudgeeraba Gold Coast
I write the following to say thank you to Marilyn, her warmth, kindness and patience was beyond what we would have expected. She made our special day even more special, as she offered advice and guidance to ensure when we arrived in Australia from Malaysia things were organised. She listened to our needs, which made the ceremony personal, friendly and in parts fun, removing the stress from the day. We would recommend her to anyone that want a celebrant that does that little more to make your day a wonderful day! Thank You John and Ngo xoxo
