YOU DESERVE SOMETHING 

Exceptional

BE CONFIDENT YOU'RE GETTING THE BEST

I've been kickstarting marriages for many years and from what couples and their guests tell me, I'm good at it.  In fact, most of my clients are referrals from previous clients, because their experience was too good not to share.  When you book with me, you get the full package.  I don't discount packages because I give my all into every service I offer. 

After getting to know you and your story, I carefully craft a ceremony that is speaks volumes into who you are.  I work hard to ensure your journey to the threshold of marriage is stress-free, clear and exactly what you want it to be.  I don't want to create another boring ceremony, I create memories that will leave everyone talking for all the right reasons.  

If you want to start the rest of your life with a ceremony that's worthy of such a commitment then book your date, before someone else does. 

"From the very first contact we had with Mark, throughout the planning process to the wedding and after everything was absolutely perfect.  We had 100% confidence that he was our man. There was no need to meet another celebrant or think about it we booked on our first meeting.
 
He could see what type of couple we were and knew exactly how to cater to our needs. He is so passionate about what he does and absolutely did not take our business for granted.

 

I would recommend everyone book Mark for their wedding (do it, I mean it) you won’t regret it. "

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Do you have a PA System?


You'll notice that a PA system isn't included in any of the lists above, that's because it's not. I can project my voice incredibly well and most outdoor wedding venues provide couples with a PA system, if yours doesn't, let me know and I'll arrange a great one for you. However it will cost an additional $120.




When is payment required?


Once you say, "Yep", I want Married By Mark to be my Celebrant, you'll receive an invoice. Your ceremony date and time is locked in and exclusively yours, once you pay your $200 non-refundable booking fee. This fee reserves your date and covers initial adminisation costs. The balance of your payment is due closer to your wedding date. Coaching services are invoiced per session.




Can I Change My Mind?


You can change your mind as much as you like without financial penalty, as long as your new date and time are available. If you change your venue to a location that requires greater travel time, there will be additional travel costs. Once your booking fee is paid there is no refund for cancellation as work starts from the day you say, "I'm in."




Can I Have Extra Stuff?


I will make your wedding uniquely yours. If there's additional components you want added to a ceremony, like candle lighting or sand pouring, let's go for it! There's no cost for this. However, if you want me to dress up like Elvis or present or perform in a way that is outside the normal delivery and presentation of the services described on my website and that common to a Celebrant, additional fees will apply.




How Much Notice do I Need to Give?


The Australian Government requires that you sign a Notice of Intented Marriage Form at least one month before the wedding. This is usually worked through at your first meeting.
