Marian was an integral part of our wedding ceremony, which she performed in October 2010. She helped us with the structure and organisation of our service and gave us creative ideas and insights which made our ceremony better than we’d imagined it could be.
Marian provided us with valuable resources and materials to help us verbalise our emotions and feelings towards each other.She was punctual and positive at all times and encouraged us to personalise our ceremony so that we could remember our day as being special and unique - 100% about us, the love that we share and our commitment to one another.
Marian’s upbeat and vibrant personality left us feeling warm after every encounter.
Thanks again for being our celebrant, you have no idea how much we appreciate it!
Thank you for being the best Celebrant we could have asked for. You took the time before our big day to listen and understand what we wanted out of the ceremony and what sort of atmosphere we were looking for. The ceremony was exactly as we wanted. It was easy-going, friendly and relaxed.
When we first approached you to be our Marriage Celebrant we had no idea where to start the formalities. With the legal side quickly covered by your knowledge and professionalism you then used your gift of communication and understanding of personalities to bring out an outline of what we wanted even when we didn't think we knew ourselves. How clever you are.
Your experience with the written word was invaluable as you guided us with writing our Wedding Ceremony, choosing our Readings, our Prayers and our Music from your many examples. Your enthusiasm and input was a delight to share.
With our children, grandchildren and two dogs all participating in a beautiful outdoor setting, we had a perfect relaxed, happy day.
Thank you Marian for your integrity, reliability and surrounding us with peace and calm.
Now that the dust has settled so to speak, Andy and I wanted to let you know how fantastic our day was and how much we appreciate your professionalism and expertise as our Marriage Celebrant in September 2011.
From the very beginning when you were recommended to us, your guidance, understanding and support made the entire process so much easier than we could have thought. With my Dad terminally ill, you took the time to understand the importance of his role and make all allowances as I needed and also ensure all official papers were processed ASAP.
Andy and I both appreciated the collateral you provided to guide and assist with clarifying what we wanted to say and how we wanted to say it. We both enjoyed the experience as we learnt more about each other through the process and the end result was the perfect, fitting ceremony starting the beautiful day. Our vows were everything important to us from the traditional start to contemporary inclusions and that all so important sense of humour we required. Personalised, poignant and 100% based on the love, commitment and feelings we hold for each other – it will be remembered always.
You caring and generous personality was appreciated always by the two of us and everyone who attended made comment on how fabulous you were and how much they enjoyed the service. All comments were to it was the best wedding they had ever attended as it was gracious, warm and (thanks to you) very, very us.
Thank-you from us, our families, our friends and although he did not make it, Dad Jimmy.
Well what a great night! And many many thanks for making our ceremony go so smoothly, don’t know how we would have handled it without you to be honest!
The rest of the night went brilliantly too and everyone had a great time T.G.
Our greatest thanks
(This was a 50th birthday party - fancy dress. The wedding was a complete surprise for the guests)
Thank you for being part of our wedding and for helping to make our ceremony go so smoothly.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our special day, as the ceremony was exactly as we wanted. It was personalised, easy-going and relaxed. Just the atmosphere we were looking for in a lovely outdoor setting!
Planning a wedding in Perth from England, could have been difficult. Your help before the big day with ideas for the service, as well as the legalities, was invaluable. Your help and support made the process so much easier than we could have thought.
Everyone who attended commented on how much they enjoyed the service thanks to your warm personality, enthusiasm and humour.
A special thanks also, to Niall, who took the photographs and organised the music.
Thanks again for being our celebrant and for helping us have such a happy day. We really appreciate your help, support and professionalism.
Love Phil and Sue
Gerry and I sincerely wish to thank you for delivering our wedding ceremony on January 5th 2014 so beautifully. Reflecting the next day on our wedding we both agreed that you made the day for us, our family and friends. We received many compliments after the ceremony and over the following days – on your behalf.
In the lead up to our special day your guidance, professionalism, experience and knowledge made all the difference to how comfortable we felt on the day.
Thanks again Marian for helping us to create the perfect ceremony exactly as we wanted it to be.
Gerard and Ann McAuliffe
