The Unity Sand Ceremony is known all over the world for its beauty and sanctity. Couples add this ceremony to their weddings as an alternative to the unity candle ceremony because it so elegantly captures the meaning of their two lives becoming one. And it creates a lasting keepsake of that special day. It is especially suited to a beach or outdoor wedding.

Helen & Cara had a commitment with a Flower Exchange that combined with their Love Story made their friends cry with Rainbow Pride Celebrant Marilyn Verschuure

Rainbow Pride CelebrantTestimonial Cara & Helen Commitment Vic Lucas Park Bulimba Brisbane
"When I first met Marilyn, I knew she would be perfect for our ceremony. We only had a short space of time to prepare the wedding (6 weeks!!) and Marilyn was so professional and organised without being stressful - just what we needed!! Marilyn's wealth of knowledge and on-line resources allowed us to tailor a unique, memorable and meaningful ceremony for both Helen and I and our two children. People did not stop talking about how beautiful the sand ceremony was! Throughout the ceremony Marilyn was relaxed but professional, she interpreted our love story perfectly: she just "got" us and it showed. The guests laughed and cried throughout the ceremony (at all the right places).  To sum it up; two of our friends said that they had never cried before at any wedding the had been to...until ours. Practically all our guests said that they had never been to a more beautiful ceremony. Thank you Marilyn :-))) x" love Helen & Cara

Using different coloured sands, the bride and groom each take turns filling a Unity Vase as they recite their chosen vows. Parentcan participate also if you choose to. Just as the mixed grains of sand can never be separated, so too will the couple be joined together in commitment and never separated. The sand colours can be coordinated with your home décor, chosen based on colours you love personally or for any other special reason that is meaningful to you. At the end of the ceremony, the vase is taken home and sits atop a shelf, a table or a mantle, beautifully symbolizing the start of your new life together.

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. Rachel & Kris.

A Special Way to Honour Your Blended Family - The Family Unity Ceremony is a modified version of the Unity Sand Ceremony. This ceremony can include children and other members of your new blended family and creates a treasured Unity Vase filled with many colours. Family members can also recite special vows as part of the ceremony.

In today’s world it’s not uncommon for either the bride or groom to have children and the Same Sex Family Unity Ceremony is perfect for when children are part of the picture. Children are especially drawn to using sand to symbolize the loving union of their new Mums or Dads.

The Unity Candle ceremony symbolizes the joining of two people and two families. The mothers of the couple light a candle, which symbolizes the family of each, and the individuality of the brides or the grooms.

At the end of the commitment ceremony the couple each take a flame from their family name candle and bring the two flames together to light their single union candle. This is candle of unity because the couple must come together, giving a spark of themselves, to create a new light.

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
