Mary Lynn Officiant Hello

  1. 1. Mary Lynn Gaydosh - Marriage Blessing Officiant Hello, and welcome to a world of wedding possibilities on our beloved island of Mallorca! You have chosen a perfect destination for your day of celebration, and my role in this very special day is to lead your marriage blessing ceremony just as you might have dreamed it could be. My part is also to help you with all the text/words/readings you would like to experience throughout your ceremony. Please understand that in order to be legally or "officially married" , in most countries this is the signing before a registry/registrar in your place of residence. I cannot provide documents which will legally declare you are married. The ceremonies I offer are, as I like to say, "Your Heart's Promise" wedding ceremony, and I share dozens of these celebrations every year with wonderful couples from all around the world. This is a ceremony in which YOU can choose, declare and promise as you like; these ceremonies usually include rings and bridesmaids and best men, the whole traditional 3 part vow ceremony of: VOWS - Declaration of Intent // Marriage Promise// Ring Exchange. Of course, I am completely open to co-creating your ceremony as you've always dreamed it would be, whether or not we do the 3 part vows. I have been sharing these ceremonies in Mallorca with couples since 2005, beginning with my first ceremony in the valley of Soller. It was a bi-lingual ceremony, English-Spanish. I was called with 2 day's notice to cover for a celebrant who had lost his voice.
  2. 2. At that time, I was already very active publicly in Majorcan environmental causes; I was also one of few native English teachers in the Soller valley, and I was fortunate to have a very good reputation as "The modern voice teacher" on the island. Also at the time I was at a musical peak as a performer, a singer and collaborator in numerous musical projects on the island. My fluency in Catalan and Spanish made me a bit of a rarity at the time, now it's much more common! I was also known, unbeknownst to me at the time, as someone who had a "knack" for sincere public speaking, and more than that I've been told, was the "empathy" which was felt. Hence that first call out of the blue 10 years ago, and since then I feel very, very fortunate and blessed to be a part of the personal ceremonies I have shared with couples, many of whom are still in touch with baby and new house photos! I come from a small town in Northeast Ohio, USA, and was raised in an very open Christian family, so I always felt encouraged to "extend my belief borders". Which was a very good idea, because beginning with my university studies at the internationally known Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachussetts, I most certainly have extended some borders in my life, and have enjoyed "border crossings" since then! I'm most often called upon for non-religious ceremonies, so feel free to make any requests regarding other wedding ceremony rites if there is something that particularly strikes a chord with you! Well, I hope that's enough about me. Now. What about YOU? This is YOUR DAY, and it is very important that your ceremony flows just
  3. 3. as you wish it to. That's my part, and I am available via email, Skype, phone (Voipwise/Whatsapp…) and personal meeting in Mallorca at your venue (when possible), to go over any details, questions, suggestions, etc that we need to cover for your ceremony. The usual procedure is that I send you a few texts, so that you have an idea of how a ceremony might proceed, and then we begin to exchange ideas. Once you've received a few texts…. …You may decide that you prefer that I take care of the whole spoken ceremony, all the way through. No problem, with pleasure! I have a few simple questions for you, and then I take it from there. …Or, for example, you might like a a basic text, and also have some ideas, and/or you choose to mention a few things to me, wishes, desires, comments, wording, personal vows, etc…. once we've established a few "guideline wishes", and a few emails or Skype calls, I know how best to proceed. ….Or, you might even choose to be co-creators of your ceremony. This is when I ask for some more background on the two of you, and we really keep a good flow of contact via email and a couple Skype video and/or personal meetings whenever possible. I choose not to say "It's my job" , I prefer to say "it's my pleasure" to make your marriage ceremony all that you wish for it to be. From a "Hand fasting ceremony" to "Spanish Tokens", Japanese rituals and Hindi rites, from an "Apache blessing" to a "Plato pondering from 'Symposium'"…the ways we can create your ceremony are joyously, humorously, harmoniously, lyrically, poetically and literally so many!
  4. 4. Finally, perhaps your desire is an intimate, simple, down to earth ceremony, as a symbolic promise to share with your most beloved on your wedding day…the day which brings you most joy. Of course. Whether we make a big effort with meetings and ideas, or simply exchange a few emails, this is your day. And I'm here to help make it most beautiful. Let it be known that children and elders, special friends or any significant others, are VERY WELCOME to share in your day, in any way that feels right for you. Also, I very much welcome same gender ceremonies, I have had the pleasure of sharing a few with lovely fun couples. All is possible….just say so, and I will do my best to make your ceremony "just right" for You. Very warm regards, Mary Lynn Gaydosh P.S. I speak fluent Catalan and Spanish for bi-lingual ceremonies.
