Rainbow Pride CelebrantLove Letter Jayney & Sarah Wedding Palmwoods Home Sunshine Coast
Dearest Marilyn, On this, nearly the eve of our 12th year together and 1st year anniversary I sit and ponder why I still haven’t done a review for you. I’ll tell you why......Every time I have sat to put some words of gratitude and recommendation together, the words simply escape me. The truth is words cannot encompass what you brought to us, to our special day, to the months leading up and to some truly beautiful memories. You understood us in a way I didn’t realise someone outside of our relationship could and then managed to articulate our Love Story in a way that warmed, delighted and humoured us all. You thought of absolutely everything and shared so many priceless tips that saved us running around at the last minute. Our guests had so many questions about you and how we found you, you really made our ceremony something truly memorable for us and our guests. Words don’t do you justice, you’re incredible and we were so incredibly lucky to have your incredible expertise and spirit with us on our wedding journey. Wow!!!! You are the bomb Marilyn!! We loooooooved our ceremony so much, it is much more than we could have ever hoped for. What a gift you have to capture us in this way! WE LOVE YOU AND THANK YOU WITH A MILLION STARS, 5 SIMPLY ISN’T ENOUGH! Your friends, Jayney, Sarah, Izzy and Bax xoxoxo

From the moment we researched and then met Marilyn in person we knew we had made the right choice for our special day. The CEREMONY WAS PERFECT on the day and she also took time to dress to blend in with our colour scheme. She looked gorgeous! Marilyn’s words and our handfasting ceremony that incorporated our wedding party and family members will always be a cherished moment. Nothing was left up in the air, and we experienced the best day of our partnership. We couldn’t be happier to recommend her for any ceremony you may want to choose as Marilyn will believe in you! We were initially concerned that as we were a same sex couple that our decision to hold a Big Gay Wedding Day wouldn’t be met with as much enthusiasm as we felt towards it. We were wrong! Marilyn was amazing beyond words. She quickly explained that Queensland had recently passed a legal Civil Partnership option for couples like us that either couldn't legally marry, or for those that chose this option instead of marriage. We were so happy to find out that we would have some form of legal document to sign on the day that legitimised our union. Marilyn also helped us heaps with listening to and understanding what our families would like as far as participation on the day. Thank you Marilyn! Cheers, Kim Harman & Lauren Ely xxx

We met with 3 marriage celebrants and Marilyn won hands down! She is very experienced and has loads of resources at her fingertips. Marilyn spent a lot of time with us, going over every detail. We were certainly well prepared for our wedding after Marilyn gave us so much confidence and empowered us with her knowledge. We are SO glad we chose her. So many of our wedding guests said it was the best wedding that they have ever been to! Love your work Marilyn!! Love Julie & Pier xoxo

Dear Marilyn, 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.The ceremony was beautiful and you were perfect. Your constant guidance made the lead up to our wedding day completely stress free. We are so grateful!

So many of our guests were blown away with how beautiful the ceremony was and they felt that you could not possibly have done any better. You looked so lovely as well. You have a natural ability to put people at ease, and assure them everything will run smoothly on the day. Nothing at all was too much trouble and you solved any problem we threw your way. We truly could not have had a better celebrant. Pat who read the poem at our Commitment was a Celebrant also and she said you were fantastic and that she could not have done better! We would recommend you to anyone in need of a celebrant. We just wanted to say a huge thank you! IT WAS PERFECT.This is a day we will never forget and you were huge part of it.

Marilyn’s lovely, friendly approach made our commitment ceremony a very ’natural’ process for us; we were wanting something ‘elemental’ and she steered us to a place where we could articulate and make real, what we wanted to share with everyone joining us. We both felt ‘present’ on the day and that our day was unique, all due to Marilyn’s respectful and professional style as our Celebrant. Thank you Marilyn!!! The Girls xoxo

Dear Marilyn, Our ceremony was as perfect as we hoped it would be and we would like to thank you for everything.  As I'm sure you remember we wanted a very simple and short ceremony (too short we came to realise after our first meeting with you). You did not try to persuade us to change our minds however Marilyn you did offer us examples of other ceremonies, readings, and poems and gave us ideas of things we could include. Marilyn became a really important part of our day, offering support and guidance. The service Marilyn provided was outstanding and made our ceremony a really stress free event. The ceremony was the perfect start to the rest of our lives together. Thank you Marilyn!!!!!! Warm Regards

The wonderful thing about using a civil celebrant for your ceremony is that your choices are endless. You can have your commitment on a glorious Gold Coast or Byron Bay beach or under the canopy of the hinterland rainforests.

Dear Marilyn, Our day could not have been more perfect! The ceremony was just as we had hoped and we thank you very much for everything. We wanted a very simple and short ceremony; Marilyn did not try to persuade us towards any particular type of ceremony however Marilyn did offer us examples of other ceremonies, readings, and poems and gave us ideas of things we could include. Marilyn also gave us advice regarding many variables we may need to consider on the day, which helped us plan for any event.  Marilyn became a really important part of our day, offering support and guidance. We are really happy with the service Marilyn provided and have had numerous comments from our guests on how beautiful the ceremony was. The ceremony was the perfect start to the rest of our lives together and we will never forget the help we received from Marilyn.
We highly recommend Marilyn to perform any ceremony and know Marilyn will help make your day very special! Kindest regards Bec & Nat xoxox

Hi Marilyn, Thanks so much for conducting our beautiful ceremony. Your experience and advice made planning stress-free, and we felt our ceremony was very personal and reflected our commitment to each other. You put us at ease from our first phone call and meeting, and your passion and enthusiasm made the planning fun. I liked meeting you first and talking about what we wanted.Your ideas for our vows and ring-warming were really great, and we enjoyed writing our personal Love Story. We always tell people our love story (because we think ours is the greatest), and with our ceremony we got to tell everyone at once. It was great how friendly, calm and supportive you were throughout everything. We have framed our certificate and put it in the living room. A lot of people said to us that our ceremony was the nicest and most meaningful they had ever been to, and we have already recommended you to a lot of our friends. Thank you for your support. We can't wait to have you back for the baby naming. Again, thank you so much! Liz & Danielle XOXO

We would like to thank Marilyn for making our day as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. We had several chats over the phone and exchanged emails to communicate our wishes for our day. We found Marilyn's website an absolute treasure trove of ideas and information. We were able to plan our entire ceremony around Marilyn's site and we were able to incorporate a Sand Ceremony with our children which signified our commitment as a family. Marilyn was easy to talk to and has a wonderful relaxed manor with people that puts you at ease straight away. She was very caring and supportive on the day of the ceremony and we could not have asked for a more wonderful Celebrant to oversee our Commitment Ceremony. We would highly recommend Marilyn to anyone. Thanks for everything you did for us.

Rainbow Pride CelebrantLove Letter from Emily & Denise' Commitment Pavilions Broken Head Byron Bay Northern NSW
Dear Marilyn, Denise and I cannot thank you enough for helping make our day so special.  We really had the most perfect day and couldn't have asked for anything to be better.  Since we were planning our wedding from America and couldn't meet with anyone in person, we were a little apprehensive at first. But once we spoke to you on the phone and then via Skype, you made us so comfortable with the whole process and we knew you were the one we wanted to tell our story.  We were unsure with how to begin the process of writing our vows and our love stories but with your examples in your resources and assistance, you made it so much easier.  Your experience and kind nature made us feel at ease with the whole process.  We even had some last minute changes (the day before the ceremony), but you handled everything as if we had nothing to worry about.  We didn't actually meet you until the morning of the ceremony but we felt like we had known you for a while.  The ceremony was beautiful and your telling of our love story made us (and our guests) laugh and cry.  We are so grateful to you and everything you put into making our day one we will forever remember.  Both of our families loved meeting you.  Thank you again for all you did. Please stay in touch! Sincerely Emily and Denise

Dear Marilyn, Today we received our Certificate of Marriage. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so special.  It was a wonderful day and all had a great time.  We loved the actual ceremony and thank you for the effort and energy you put into it. All of the guests here for our wedding ceremony really enjoyed it and there were just a few tears shed.  Dinner that evening at Little Truffle in Mermaid was great and again everyone, including us, had a great time. It took us a few days to recover, but after family all returned to Canberra and Melbourne, we sat back and felt very happy that we had taken that final step. Once again, Thank You Very Much. Kind Regards David and Bill xoxo

Hi Marilyn, Well it’s hard to believe we are almost 3 weeks of married bliss.... we are both back at work now and it’s been tuff trying to get back into it. We just wanted to thank you so very much for making our day so wonderful and special. Everything was just as we pictured it and so many of our guests are still talking about what a wonderful ceremony it was. The Love Story was a huge hit as so many people did not really know where we began and they thought it was such a lovely touch.  Our day was emotional, loving, fun and very beautiful and that is all thanks to you Marilyn.  As I said to you from when we first met the ceremony for us had to be just right and to us was the most important part of our day.  Thank you so much for everything you did, and I have passed on your name to many of our friends both gay and straight who want to make that life commitment to soul mates.  Take care and we will talk soon. Kind regards Maria & Sally Fox

My dear Marilyn, We have just watched the video and it is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It captured things that we had not seen during the day and we have really relived the day. We are both in tears now of joy and are truly grateful to you both for making our day the most amazing, loving and caring day ever. And now we have this wonderful video to look back on. I cannot find words big enough to express our thanks to you both. So from the very bottom of our hearts thank you so much for everything. We look forward to catching up with you again one day and let’s hope that day is to legalise our union. Take care and thank you again!

Hi Marilyn, Thank you so much for our special day it really was awesome. We enjoyed your thoughts and service so much! We went online and found Marilyn on her Rainbow Pride Celebrant Website by Google searching. She made such a good first impression at our initial meeting. Donna and I wanted someone who had experience with Commitment Ceremonies, someone who was as just as passionate about love and family for all, as we are. We found Marilyn just this. Marilyn is thoughtful, extremely helpful, warm, supportive and above all passionate. Marilyn offered us oodles of resources to help plan our Commitment Ceremony. There was more than enough just in her Commitment Resource Pack and then there were all the online resources. We have three very small children, and over our busy year Marilyn has been so understanding about the minimal contact and at times the running, jumping and screaming of three small boys that often took place during our meetings, phone calls and rehearsal. Marilyn puts such effort and thought into every little detail. She also gave great advice and suggestions for our special day. We loved our ceremony that included our 3 boys, not a thing went wrong and it was the most perfect day for us! We have also recommended a number of people to use Marilyn as their celebrant for their Commitment or Wedding Ceremony plans over the next couple of years. Thank you so much Marilyn again for everything you're absolute GOLD! Lots of warm well wishes and we wish you the Happiest Christmas and a very joyful New Year : ), Bridget, Donna and the boys.

Marilyn, Thank you so much for making our commitment ceremony so memorable and filled with love, not only for us but for our 100+ guests. Your passion and belief for our future together was projected through every word.
Your delivery and sound quality was perfect and hard to achieve on the beach, so well done! You were very warm and composed that we relaxed the instant you started speaking. Your continuous support and ideas throughout the planning process was priceless. You made us feel very comfortable and helped us combine traditional vows and practices with the Celtic tradition of hand fasting. You also incorporated our fathers with a ring blessing rather than the traditional giving away. Everyone who attended said they had never been to a ceremony like it and enjoyed every minute of it. We are two very happy brides and will recommend you to anyone we know who wants to get married. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the start of our lives together unforgettable.
Love Penny and Angela xoxo

Your ceremony could be relaxed and informal, or you may choose to do a traditional ceremony with all the trappings or an original ceremony of your own creation. It may include special ceremonies of your own design or choosing, or rituals from other cultures to create the perfect ceremony.
