Often the ritual of 'Handfasting' is performed, whereby the couple's hands are bound by a natural woven thread, fibre or cloth, and just before the 'Giving of Rings' the binding is slipped off with the knot still intact, signifying the fact they will always be 'bound together in marriage'. (Many couples who have a civil ceremony today, just incorporate Handfasting into their ceremony without any of the other traditions)

MARILYN MADE OUR CIVIL PARTNERSHIP CEREMONY SO PERFECT! She helped us make the best decisions and engaged everyone attending in the ceremony. It was the very best day thanks in no small part to Marilyn. We will always be grateful to her for her help in the time before the ceremony and the way she directed us through the ceremony. I cannot think of anyone else I would want to do this for us. MARILYN IS AMAZING!! Love Jody & Naomi xoxo

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 & Angela xoxo

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

Hi Marilyn, we just wanted to say thank you for making our special day extra special. The ceremony was perfect and everything we wanted it to be and more. We had a guest comment that it was the best ceremony she has ever seen - so we just had to pass on those compliments to you. Thank you so much. The rest of the day was filled with laughs, dancing, awesome speeches and delicious food. Thank you so much again for making our day so special, you did a fantastic job on the day! Love Cassie & Saskia xoxox

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.

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

Most couples choose to include in their ceremony a very special moment to share with their guests, making their ceremony truly unique and memorable.

Marilyn Verschuure Rainbow Pride Celebrant Blue & Pink Handfasting Cord represents Cardinal Direction East and the Element Air, Pink unity, honour, truth, healing, romance, pure love & friendship.

Handfasting is conducted in a circle it has no beginning and no end, it is eternal.The circle is a universal emblem of wholeness and completion. It symbolises continuity, eternity, completion and speechlessness. As it represents what is complete and unbroken, it also stands for everlasting love. The circle is often aligned with the cardinal points of the compass - north, south, east and west.
