Marlee K Bruinsma, Civil Marriage Celebrant 0438 144 269
After all, as a celebrant, I am called upon to do this often. I have a lot of experience in public speaking.
Before I became a celebrant, I presented seminars to large groups of government clients, community organisations and professional associations, trained staff and managed a team of people. That
also gave me great skills in time management, organisation and working with people. Since becoming a celebrant, I’ve extended those skills to working with small children (cute pageboys and flowergirls) and animals (dog ring bearers, horses bearing brides, butterflies & doves).
At your ceremony I do this:
Price and quality are not always linked - every celebrant is different in their experience, the way they present themselves, conduct the ceremonies, write the ceremonies and relate to you.
Ask your celebrant how many ceremonies they have done, are they comfortable with public speaking, how they have handled awkward situations with guests or brides’ fathers who won’t give them away!
Does your celebrant put you at ease and listen to what you want? Do they have a calming manner? Will they let you have input into your ceremony? Ask if they have any requirements of you.
Does your celebrant write a ceremony specially for you or do they have set ceremonies for you to choose from? Are they happy to dress up or dress down, or do something alternative if you want?
It was great having the ceremony we wanted and having a celebrant who understood our needs. The ceremony and celebrant were perfect. Keep doing what you are doing and being the person you are! You’re fantastic! Thank you so very much.

We would definitely recommend Marlee to other couples. She did a great job. She was very professional and gave us lots of ideas so we could personalise our ceremony. Marlee was very flexible with our needs.
