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!

So, what's the process?

Mark Kenny Celebrations

  • 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?

Mark Kenny Celebrations

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?

Mark Kenny Celebrations

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?

Mark Kenny Celebrations

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 hired Mark for our small, intimate wedding at Stonebarn. He was just what we were looking for! He tailored the ceremony to fit exactly the theme we were going for. We were living away at the time and so couldn't meet very often but Mark made us feel very organised and he was on top of everything! Even though we couldn't fit in a rehearsal, the ceremony went off without a hitch- we were completely at ease. He was super adaptable to how we wanted our wedding to be and also well priced! Thank you, Mark, for making our wedding day just as we imagined.

1 Apr 2021

Mark was absolutely amazing! We are really so grateful to him. Mark was really easy going, professional and organised. We were able to skype, email, and catch up to plan - whatever was needed. Mark couldn't have been more helpful, providing all the various legal info and making all the steps were as easy as possible. Most importantly he captured "our story" so well, and delivered an amazing ceremony. All of our guests commented on how great it was. Mark made us feel so relaxed on the day too. We can't recommend him highly enough!

25 Mar 2021

We can’t recommend Mark highly enough, due to Covid we were looking for a celebrant last minute for our wedding. Mark was available on our date, organised, prompt and fairly priced. He had a modern yet professional approach to the ceremony order which is exactly what we were looking for. He made the legal process easy and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Thanks again Mark! From Mr and Mrs O’Neil.

14 Mar 2021

We absolutely loved having Mark as our celebrant! From our very first meeting, we felt instantly at ease with Mark, and he coached us through each step of the process (and a few postponed dates) to finally getting us hitched. We absolutely love his work and the way he engaged with us and the guests, and knew that no matter what happened we could trust that he would have it all under control. We could not imagine anyone else standing at the end of that aisle with us on the day, he was everything we could have hoped for and more. Thank you Mark!!

27 Feb 2021

What can we say! Mark was absolutely amazing, his generous, kind, funny and personalised approach truely made tying the not that little bit more special. From the beginning (first zoom Covid call) we knew Mark was the celebrant for us, he was genuine, entertaining and immediately put us at ease. He was just our kind of person and we feel truely lucky to be married by him. If you are looking for a celebrant that will have your guests laughing, respects the true meaning of what it is to be married, provides a professional service yet makes you feel like your best mate that you have known for years, go no further than Mark, a truely great guy and an amazing celebrant! Thank you!

20 Feb 2021

We booked Mark immediately after our first meeting with him. We felt so comfortable with him straight away and he was super easygoing and friendly. He made the whole leadup process completely stressfree and even helped me look into a full legal name change process which he didn't have to do but offered to help with anyway. When the snap Perth Covid lockdown happened 3 weeks before our wedding, he checked in with us to make sure we were ok. He took our jumbled recollection of how we met and turned it into a story. We had so many guests comment how fun the ceremony was and how perfectly suited it was to us as a couple. Mark was fun, funny, professional and tailored the ceremony so perfectly for us. We couldn't have asked for a better celebrant!

18 Feb 2021

We have absolutely nothing to fault with Mark Kenny. He was extremely easy to work with right from the first day we met him straight through to the big day when we said 'i do'! Mark had everything possible covered and it was nice to have 1 less thing to be worried about. We would 10/10 recommend Mark to anyone looking for a Celebrant :)

21 Nov 2020

Mark is absolutely amazing!! Mark takes significant time to personally get to know the couple getting married and works incredibly hard to put together the most perfect and accurate wedding story about the couple. Mark was also our MC and he did a beyond amazing job, all of our guests commented on how great Mark was and we also gave out his card! We would recommend Mark to everyone ! Thankyou Mark ♡

14 Nov 2020

Dan and I just wanted to pass on our MASSIVE thanks to you for our wedding last Saturday! You exceeded all of our expectations and made our day unforgettable. You made us feel so at ease and comfortable right from our first meeting all the way through to 'I DO.' We knew what to expect through the whole process and never once felt overwhelmed with all that there is to do when planning for your wedding. You explained everything perfectly and always went the extra mile for us. Our night was made, when we sat down at our reception to find our marriage certificate sitting there waiting! Such a small detail, but so incredibly perfect. Thank you again! We will be recommending you to EVERYONE!

As soon as Gareth & I met Mark we knew he was the celebrant for us as he instantly understood who we were as a couple and the vibe we wanted for our special day. Mark was there for us each step of the way & always stayed in touch. We had a rehearsal prior to our a big day which I am so happy we did as Mark was so patient & helpful, running through each part of the ceremony to ensure our special day went perfect. On the day of our wedding we received so many compliments about Mark, my best friend even asked for his details for her own upcoming wedding. Thank you so much for making our special day more magical than I ever could have dreamed of. Brooke & Gareth

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!

10 Oct 2020

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
