Mark - Love Is All You Need


I can hardly believe I have been doing this for over 13 years now and I still absolutely love it :) Performing is my life and I am so lucky to be able to put my skills to such brilliant use and share in so many people's joy and celebration! I don't always sport the beard but I decided I wanted it for my own Wedding late last year which was sooooo much fun. I am a Dad and a Dog lover (how could you not be with a surname like mine?) I have a crazy Jack Russle called "Indiana Bones" I love life! :)

Before you marry, Australian law requires that you complete a Notice of Intention of Marriage. This document must be lodged with me no less than one month and no more than eighteen months prior to your marriage ceremony.

You are required to produce your original Birth Certificate or authorised extract. If you were born overseas your Birth Certificate is preferred but if you can’t produce it then your  passport will be accepted.

Note: An Australian passport can now be accepted as proof of birth. A statutory declaration can also be used if you were born overseas and cannot produce a Birth Certificate or passport.

I am located in Melbourne, close to the City in the Inner East. This is a central location and allows for easy access to all areas of Melbourne and I am also willing to travel to your venue if it is further afield .

If you have been divorced then I must sight an original copy of your Decri Absolute. If your previous spouse has died then the original copy of the Death Certificate is needed. These documents must be produced before your marriage can take place.


Also before your wedding you will need to sign a declaration stating that you believe there is no impediment to the marriage between yourself and your future husband/wife.

On your wedding day you will sign my wedding register and other documents. To complete this procedure you will need two witnesses who are both over the age of 18.

Should you need any further information please contact me. I am a professionally trained and qualified Civil Marriage Celebrant and am here to help you create the celebration you want.

Foreign language documents must be translated into English and a NAATI accredited Translation Certificate supplied.

No. However you may wish to contact the organisations below:

I will also provide you with the pamphlet Happily Ever Before and After.

A bride can obtain a marriage certificate after the wedding from the office of Births Deaths and Marriages in the State in which she was married and apply to Vic Roads, Medicare, the Electoral Office etc to have her name changed on their records.

Whilst a valid marriage certificate will not change her name on her birth certificate / birth record, it would allow her to legally change her name on all of her identification documents.

We had the pleasure of witnessing Mark in action for the first time at a friend’s wedding and knew instantly that he was the celebrant for us. His easy going nature and entertaining approach to the ceremony really appealed to us, while working with him through the requirements in the lead up to the day was straightforward and hassle free. We could not recommend Mark highly enough!

So blessed to have found and chosen Mark for our intimate wedding ceremony. Mark was warm, relaxed, creative and thoughtful during the lead up to our wedding and on the day he was organised, calm and gracious. On such a special day for us we are so happy to have Mark a part of the memories forever.

Mark is an excellent celebrant. Incredibly kind, had fantastic suggestions for vows and is incredibly easygoing which was really comforting on such a big day. He absolutely nailed everything and we are incredibly grateful to have had him as our celebrant.

Do Indian hand fastening ceremonies carry religious significance?

We are considering having a hand fastening done in India before our wedding, for relatives there. We are concerned the beliefs behind the Indian ceremony may clash with our own, but I haven't been able to find much information. I don't want to commit until I know that I'm comfortable with it. Does anyone know if this ceremony is based in religion, or is it simply cultural?

All You Need Is Love - Mark Doggett

Hi Erin,

Great Question. Hand Binding or Fasting is largely derived from Celtic traditions and was not essentially a religious ritual. In fact it was often an alternative to a religious ceremony when a member of the Clergy could not be reached or found to perform the Ceremony. It is as you asked something that also derives from the Native American Indian culture (One of my personal favourites for rituals & wording). The Native American Indian beliefs are very much Spiritual in that they believe every single part of nature has a spirit and therefore deserves and commands respect. I certainly wouldn't call this religious just beautifully human and natural. I am not specifically sure what the exact symbolism for the Hand Binding is in their culture but I am sure it would have been as simple as two spirits being bound together and therefore deserving of care, nurture, protection and respect as the two are now one. I think it would a beautiful choice for a Wedding Ceremony :)

Here's a link to a description of a Ceremony where they actually made their own binding cord using Cherokee beads. How wonderful!


Good Luck & Enjoy.

How do I get around awkward clashes when seating guests?

I'm planning seating for my reception, but a few of my guests can't be seated together. We have 12 seats per (long) table - is it acceptable to seat these guests at the same table, far apart? I don't like catering for their disagreements, but I don't want a fight -even a small one - at my wedding.

All You Need Is Love - Mark Doggett

Hi Erin,

Me again :) This is a really tough and common dilemma! I can't say I have a definitive solution but just thinking completely outside the box. What if at the time people arrive they had to draw a card from a bag/bowl/box.... which had a corresponding table and or seat number and that was their allocation. They could perhaps do this as couples? This would really mix things up and would entirely take the problem out of your hands as they would have no one to blame but fate if they don't like the person sitting next to them :)
