I’m Marylin, founder of A Lovely Day. I’ve become coach and humanist celebrant (wedding celebrant) following the conception of my own wedding secular ceremony.

It’s been a huge adventure, that triggered a revelation for me but also this question: why is it so complicated to get married in a non-religious way? And what about having a more personal ceremony than the one given by the registry office?

Discovering a true passion for this subject and loving writing, I decided to offer my experience and help to other couples wanting to realize an original and tailor-made ceremony for their wedding or vow renewal. That’s how I became a full-time wedding celebrant: a true calling.

Since then, I bring my dynamism and sweetness to dozens of couples. I’m always seeking originality and authenticity to make every celebration unforgettable for the newly weds and their guests. Speaking 5 languages, it’ essential for me to understand their culture to create a real connexion with them.

After the birth of my baby, I naturally decided to also propose secular naming ceremonies (also known as child dedication or birth ceremonies).

My promise: to give your the best to make your ceremony just perfect, following your craziest dreams.

I am committed to bring many feelings and emotions to your ceremony, because that is what fuels my passion.

We were over the moon with our ceremony which went exactly as we wanted it to. Our guests were also delighted, and it inspired quite a few of those present. The speech was perfect and just what we as a couple had in mind. The personal touches were spot on. We have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Hi Marylin, our month of coaching together is at an end and it feels quite strange. I don’t doubt for a second that you will be successful. You are enthusiastic, hard-working, generous, ambitious, realistic, optimistic, organised, full of drive and curiosity. You are made for this profession, it shows, people sense it, it’s as clear as day. It would be fantastic if all my clients were like you, because you were really a pleasure to work with. Your clients are very lucky people. And those who place their trust in you won’t be disappointed!
