My go-to ceremony style is very relaxed, yet entirely professional, where I aim to make you guys feel as comfortable as possible while we're up there in front of your nearest and dearest.

Hi Guys!

I'm Mark (but most people call me Kenny!) and I'm an Authorised Marriage Celebrant based in Perth, WA.

My go-to ceremony style is very relaxed, yet entirely professional, where I aim to make you guys feel as comfortable as possible while we're up there in front of your nearest and dearest. I want your guests to feel comfortable too - if they ask you afterwards if I'm an "old friend", then I know I've done my job right!

I take pride in helping people create their dream ceremony that is completely tailored to their own personalities while ensuring a fun, casual and professionally thorough experience. I'm all about prompt responses whether it be through email, phone call or text, and I want you to know that I've got your backs the whole way.

So, a massive congratulations, and I hope to hear from you so we can organise an obligation-free catch up to discuss the whole process.

Cheers!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

So, what's the process?

  • Firstly, get in contact with me and see if I'm available on your big day, let me know where your ceremony is, and I'll get back to you asap with a quote.
  • If you like what you see, we can organise an obligation free meeting (face to face, skype/facetime, or phone call) so we can all get to know each other, discuss ceremony ideas, and you can decide if I'm the right celebrant for you.
  • A few days later I'll touch base with you to see how you're going, and if you decide to lock me in...after quietly celebrating the excitement of getting to marry another awesome couple...I'll get a few of the formalities over and done with:
  • I'll send you an email with an invoice (deposit due within 7 days of confirming booking) that will officially lock in the date for me, a template for you to fill out that will allow me to transfer all your details to a number of documents that I must submit, and some information about our next meeting(s).
  • We'll organise a time to get together and sign the "Notice of Intended Marriage". This must happen, at the very latest, 1 month prior to the wedding date. *note: if we are unable to meet up in time and I can't witness the signing of this document, I can give you a list of people qualified to do so.
  • We'll also go through the structure of your ceremony, and I'll take notes about "your story" - the fun part! This is the part that really personalises the ceremony for you guys (amongst a heap of other things - the options are endless!). 
  • After this, I will go away and put together the first draft of your ceremony (you'll receive this 2 weeks before the wedding day at the latest).
  • We will work through things until it is perfect for you.
  • As close to the wedding date as possible, we'll meet up one more time to sign one more document (this can also be done if we choose to have a rehearsal for the ceremony).
  • Then I'll see you there, at the end of the aisle, on the big day! I'll perform your personalised ceremony, we'll sign 3 different documents (you'll need 2 witnesses as well - anyone over 18 that is attending the wedding), and then present you to your family and friends as a married couple!
  • In the build up to the day and behind the scenes, I'll be getting all the legal stuff covered and liasing with you -unlimited phone calls, emails, text- about all the little things we can do to make your day as amazing as possible.
  • After the wedding, I will immedietely send off the appropriate documents to Births, Deaths and Marriages, and then will assist you in applying for your official marriage (you can use this to change your name etc.)

Do you have your own PA system that you can use for our ceremony?

Yes! It's portable and wireless, so it'll be perfect for any destination! I'll be using a wireless mic and can even operate your music (bridal party entrance, during signings etc) through the speaker too.

Do you travel?

Absolutely! There will be an added cost, however.

For travel more than 100km (round trip) from my home in Singleton, it will be $25 per 50km extra (for both ceremony and rehearsal).

I also travel interstate - we can discuss arrangements if this is required.

On the day, when do you arrive and when do you leave our ceremony?

I arrive 45-60 minutes before the scheduled start of the ceremony to set up and prepare.

After the ceremony, I will usually leave my PA system set up for another 10-15 minutes, just in case you or your photographer for example need me to make any announcements. I will then attempt to inconspicuously touch base with you both, congratulate you, and get out of your hair (I'll also ensure that your commerative marriage certificate makes it into the hands of a very close family member to look after while you are being showered in congratulations).

Mark is amazing at what he does!!! We were after a celebrant who would make the ceremony really personal, and capture us as a couple. He is so flexible with his style, so it's really tailored to the couple and how you'd like the day to go. We live interstate, so we met Mark initially on a FaceTime call, but as soon as we hung up we knew we wanted him to be our celebrant. He's so easy to get along with, pours so much time into every element of the ceremony and getting it perfect...and he was extremely patient with us because we are terribly disorganised adults. He made the lead-up to the big day so relaxing, and our guests kept asking afterwards if he was an old friend because we all looked so comfortable during the ceremony. Thanks for making it so great, Mark!!!

Mr & Mrs Moneeeey! What can I say? It was an absolute honour to help you guys out on your big day. Such a welcoming group of family and friends, while the two of you just ooze personality and charisma which allowed everyone present to share in the fun and strength of your awesome relationship. Congratulations guys, and thanks again for having me!

Mark is kind, down to earth, funny and professional. We felt as though we'd known Mark for years on first meeting, he felt like an instant friend, and we felt more than comfortable opening up to him and sharing our story. Mark was able to turn this casual meeting into a piece of literary art! We were so happy with the way he put our story tofether. All paper work was also taken care of, it was such a breeze! During the ceremony, Mark helped us feel at ease and all wedding jitters were banished due to Mark's relaxed and calm nature.Thank you so much Mark for the perfect ceremony, even a little rain couldn't ruin the moment!

Marianna & Andrew! Thanks so much guys! I hope you had an amazing day - your ceremony was just beautiful (much like the two of you!) and yes, even a bit of sprinkling rain added an extra element to make it all that little bit more special. All the best for your marriage ahead guys! :)

Wow! What can we say. Mark Kenny was absolutely exceptional in making us feel incredibly confident and relaxed with his very thorough preparation and professionalism. His background in the entertainment industry really shines through with his ability to engage guests in a fun, easy-going way. He can easily balance these traits with the formalities of a wedding as well. We had guests come up to us thinking that Mark was a life-long friend of ours. This is a testament to Mark's demeanor and superb approach which was so well received by all. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone wishing to have an unforgettably incredible day.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Oh you guys!!! I can't thank you enough firstly for the kind words, but most importantly for having me be part of your big day!!! I'm so glad that your guests thought we'd all known each other for a long time - because I definitely felt so welcomed, not just by you guys, but all your family and friends too. You're both an inspiration to everyone around you and it was an absolute honour getting to know you. Congrats again guys :)

We are so glad that we chose Mark as our celebrant! He made everything so personal that many of our friends and family presumed he had known us for years. Mark was amazing to deal with, especially when we had to postpone earlier in the year due to COVID. Mark played a very important role in creating the best day of our lives!

Mark was onto it from the beginning. His professional but laid back approach left us feeling so comfortable. He really got to know us and gave us a very personalised ceremony. Can’t thank him enough

9 Oct 2020

Mark was our celebrant and MC for our wedding. During the whole process Mark made us feel at ease and calm. On the actual day Mark was absolutely amazing and professional. Continuing to make us feel comfortable and at ease with the ceremony. Marks humour and the way he works the crowd was amazing at the reception. Every guest loved him and asked where we found him. I would recommend him in a heart beat

12 Sep 2020

We can not not fault Mark at all. He’s so professional, great with attention to detail and just a fun loving guy who loves his job. Our COVID19 ceremony was perfect, intimate affair that was perfect, thanks to his guidance. Can’t wait 12 months to do it all again with our big celebration in 2021. Thank you sooooo much Mark; Mr and Mrs Hurrelbrink

11 Jul 2020

Mark is the most AMAZING wedding celebrant! We decided instantly at our first meeting that Mark was the perfect celebrant for us! Our wedding plans were completely turned upside down due the Covid-19 restrictions, but Mark supported us from the minute the restrictions were put in place. We ended up having a small, intimate wedding with close family and friends. Mark was outstanding on the day, he has such a professional, friendly, calming, fun approach and everyone commented on how fantastic he was! Mark is going to be our celebrant when we celebrate part 2 of our wedding once the international borders open again! We can’t wait! Mark, we can’t thank you enough for all your help and guidance and making our day so perfect!

We decided to have a surprise wedding at our engagement party. From the get go, Mark was incredible, helping us decide how to best go about our ceremony and surprise our guests. A bit of acting was also required during the ceremony to maintain the ruse; which Mark performed perfectly! Mark, is a very thoughtful and gentle person with a wonderful speaking voice (and a great singing voice too, so we hear!). We were truly blessed to have found him and to have had him officiate our marriage and we can't recommend him enough. Thank you so much, Mark!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Guuuuys!!! Thanks so much for the kind words. You are both amazing people and it was an absolute pleasure getting to know you. Your family and friends (along side you guys) are simply the most welcoming people - I even felt like I was part of the family! Thanks so much for having me be part of such a unique and fun experience! Congratulations!

29 Feb 2020

Mark was a dream to work with and made the whole process so easy for us. We would highly recommend using him as your celebrant.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Thank you so much guys!!! A massive congrats again!!! What a beautiful couple you are - it was such an honour being part of your special day. It was an amazing ceremony in that incredible backyard setting. What a team that made the dream become a reality!!! Take care, and all the best for your marriage ahead :)

Cannot commend Kenny (Mark) enough! We knew him through a friend and he was referred onto us. Upon first meeting we knew he was our guy! So warm and genuine and the same sense of humour as us. He even makes sure he’s suit matches your wedding theme incase he is snapped up in some photos - what a legend! But in all honesty, Mark was so professional and made our day such a breeze. I felt comforted knowing he was there to make sure everything run smoothly. We would highly recommend him for your special day.

I’m so glad our original celebrant double booked us! Mark was fantastic. Throughout the process we felt so relaxed and looked after. From our first conversation we felt that Mark understood what we wanted and he created a ceremony that exceeded our expectations. He was very professional and accomodating. Never had any issues contacting him and he was always happy to answer all of our questions. I would highly recommend Mark to any couple. Thank you Mark.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Guuuys! What a nice twist of fate it was ending up as your celebrant! I'm so glad I got to share a part of your special day - it was a perfect setting for the welcoming, loving, and chilled out couple that you guys are :)

Mark was an absolute delight to deal with. He offered a service that was reasonably priced, very professional and very personal at the same time. In our search for a celebrant we found that far too many were too casual in their approach and while that suits some people, it just wasn’t the vibe that we wanted. We took advantage of an extra service he offers and had him stay on as our MC and we were so glad we did. My husband and I could not recommend Mark more. He is confident, creative and very dignified as a celebrant, but he is also a lot of fun, enthusiastic and charismatic as an MC. Most importantly, you will not be left in the dark concerning his processes. His dedication to making your day as easy and enjoyable for you as possible makes him an absolute stand out asset to have.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Thanks so much Mr & Mrs McDonald! What a lovely evening it was. I had such a good time getting to know you guys and your story (gonna be tough to top that proposal story Frank!), and it was awesome hanging out with your family and friends while hosting your reception too. Thanks a million for having me legends :)

Thank you Mark for such a wonderful ceremony on our wedding day. All my guests said that you were the perfect choice to be David and my Celebrant. You ensured everything went to plan and many of my guests said it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever seen/been to. You truly made our day and I cannot thank you enough for being a big part of it. You did an outstanding job for both of us and we both would be honoured to recommend you to anyone who wants the best celebrant for their special day.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Mr. and Mr. Howley-Borrows!!! You guys are the absolute best. Such an amazing and inspiring couple, I could actually sit and chat with you both for hours. Thank you so much for having me there on your big day, it was an honour to play such a big part in it all. Congratulations again, and hopefully catch you both soon!
