Heart2heart Ceremonies Celebrant
Mobile, Gold Coast QLD 4217
Hi. My name is Marlee Bruinsma. Thank you for looking at my page and congratulations! I am an experienced celebrant who can help you to have the ceremony you want. I am an authorised civil marriage celebrant based in South East Queensland, central to Tamborine Mountain, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Wongawallan, Beaudesert, Logan and northern New South Wales.
I provide a relaxed stress free approach - with ceremonies that your guests will love as well. With attention to detail and guidance and support, I will ensure that your wedding ceremony is enjoyable and relaxed and beautiful. I attend to all the legal paperwork and write an individual ceremony for you, based on what you want. We keep in contact the whole way through. My service generally includes all meetings, a rehearsal, use of a PA system, a personal and creative ceremony, ongoing support and guidance up to your day and delivering your ceremony on the day, as well as registering your marriage afterwards. You are welcome to contact me to arrange an obligation-free meeting or quote. All enquiries are welcome.
As your celebrant, I guide you in the unfolding of your ceremony. Your involvement in the creation of your ceremony may be large or small - your choice always. Vows, rituals (candles, wine, flowers...), poetry or prose, tributes to or from your family or friends, elements from your own or adopted cultural heritage, and the parts needed to make it legal - all of these make a ceremony for you. I provide you with the information and resources you need to choose the ceremony that is right for you.
Music and readings are important for your ceremony, whether a wedding, naming, commitment ceremony, renewal of vows, or other ceremony. An uplifting piece of music at the end of your ceremony leaves everyone feeling buoyant and ready for the next step of your celebration. A romantic and traditional piece may herald the start of your ceremony - for an alternative ceremony, you may like some chanting or world music to start the proceedings. The readings you choose will depend on the type of ceremony you want - lighthearted, deeply romantic, spiritual, traditional or contemporary.

David & I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most amazing ceremony. We would not have been able to achieve it without you. Thank you for all your help from the very beginning. You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with & we had such a great time planning it all. With your help, it was made so easy. Everything we needed was given to us in the book & from there it was a breeze. The day itself, well wow. It was so touching and so emotional. The vows were so special to us and so many people commented on how amazing the words you spoke were. Most of our friends have been to church weddings where it is all very formal with readings from the bible & we had people comment on how refreshing it was to have the ceremony all about us with words that relate to us & mean something to us. Many people also said to us later that you were so sweet, so caring & very professional. All of that David and I already knew, so we just said, yep she's the best. And you really are Marlee. You helped create the most amazing day for us. We could not have asked for anything to be done better or different. It was all better than we could have ever hoped for. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to create the most magical day.~ Nelly & David
You really did such a wonderful job. And we will most certainly cherish our wedding day especially as you brought it all together so magically! It left such a huge impact on everyone. We have had heaps of feedback all saying the same thing. That was the best wedding I have ever been to. Quite a number of people have told us how they can?t stop talking about it to their friends. ~ Wendy & Robert
Thank you for a beautiful naming ceremony for our children. It truly was a magical experience, almost dream like. When I was planning this ceremony a lot of people queried why I was doing this, I explained to them then that the ceremony is actually a way of introducing the guardians of a child, to explain the meaning of the names & why that name was chosen. Because some many people queried me, I started to question the importance of the ceremony for us & why we felt we should be doing this, but our original supporting beliefs were cemented when the ceremony started. This was truly a moving experience. I believe you moved many people that day with the beauty of the ceremony & the words you spoke. I know the grandparents & the great grandparent loved the certificates you presented them with. I remember looking around during the service & noticed many misty eyes. After the ceremony was completed many of the people who were not sure about the meaning of the day originally, told me how much they enjoyed it and you could see the glint in their eyes as though they had been touched by something that only a truly inspiring moment leaves you with. ~ Sue & John
