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.

Oh Hey!

I'm Mark, and I'm an Authorised Marriage Celebrant based in Perth, WA.

Firstly...Congratulations!

If you're after a celebrant who will feel like a mate right from the beginning of the process, then feel free to contact me and organise a really casual catch up to talk through the whole process and simply get to know each other.

I'll then carry this relaxed (yet professionally thorough) approach all the way through to the ceremony itself, where I aim to make you and your guests feel as comfortable as possible with plenty of banter, laughs and of course: love!

Questions and Answers

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 was incredible from Start to finish, we had not been to a great deal of weddings and as a result we unsure on alot of the proceedings. Mark was more than happy run over everything with us prior and made us feel extremely comfortable. This was really just the tip of the iceberg, Mark comes into his own with his creative writing. We were in complete shock as to how accurately Mark could summarise 10 years of relationship into his speech from just a 1 hour meeting months before. All while adding his own sense of humor and witt throughout. He had our crowd in hysterics then tearing up then back to hysterics. We can not begin to thank Mark enough for his contribution to our special day.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Oh mate I'm so glad you enjoyed the whole process and most importantly had an awesome time getting hitched! Thanks soooo much for the lovely words - it was such a pleasure getting to know you both and being part of your special day. You're both awesome people and made everything so cruisy. Congrats again Mr & Mrs Gaskin!!!

We hired Mark for our intimate ceremony and could not be happier with our choice! From the first meeting, we just felt so comfortable with Mark and he made the whole process so simple and tailored it to exactly what we wanted. The ceremony was sweet, funny, and comfortable and left all of our guests thinking that Mark was a friend of ours because he was able to make it so personal, while still bringing professionalism with all of the legal parts. Not only did Mark capture our story perfectly, but he made us feel so comfortable at the front that it just felt very calming and natural, with none of the awkwardness we thought we'd feel standing before everyone. We really can't say enough nice words about how amazing Mark and our ceremony were. It was perfect and we're so grateful!!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Woooow you guys!!! Thanks so so much for the kind words. It was my absolute pleasure getting you both married. And I'm so glad we could share it with you family and friends overseas via the online stream!!! All the best you absolute legends xo

We're not sure we can adequately give credit to Mark in a review.... but we'll try. If you are looking for a celebrant who will be warm, generous, fun loving, engaging, humorous, entertaining, professional and a delight to work with, then look no further than Mark. The amount of comments we have had from our wedding guests, that fell in love with Mark, is just off the hook. He nailed exactly what we were wanting and had fantastic ideas to add to our ceremony. His calm, confident and assuring nature made us feel immediately at ease from the moment we met, and gave us an ease of mind on the big day. I'm not overstating the fact that Mark made our ceremony perfect. We can't thank him enough.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

My goooooodness you lovely people! Thanks so so so much for the kind words. It really means a lot. I had the best time getting to know you both and of course meeting your beautiful boys. Definitely felt so comfortable and welcome amongst your family and friends on the day and had sooo much fun getting you married! You're amazing people and an amazing couple xo

Mark was our very first vendor we booked 13 months prior to our wedding. Throughout the whole process Mark was an absolute dream to work with. He guided and calmed us through every step of the stressful journey of organising a wedding. His level of professionalism, yet friendly and calming demeanour made the process a very enjoyable one. Mark was both our celebrant and MC for the night and in our opinion his services are worth infinity more than he charges. Mark went above and beyond for us and we highly recommend his services to couples that love a light hearted vibe for their celebrant but also want someone reliable and thorough. From the bottom on our hearts, thank you so much for making our day memorable!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Mr & Mrs Davidson!!! Wowee, what a night. I had so much fun getting to know you both (on more than just a chiropractor level hehe) and of course, getting you hitched!!! You are such relaxed, fun and welcoming people, and I could really see the love that everyone has for you both as individuals and as a couple on the day. See you soon at Lakelands Health & Performance to fix all my footy injuries from season 2022! (to anyone reading this...go and see Ben for all your Chiropractic or sports injury rehab needs!)

Mark was such an amazing celebrant for our recent wedding! He tailored our ceremony to be exactly what we were after, and ensured that everyone had such a great time with lots of laughs (and a few tears). He is such a down to earth, genuine person who immediately made us feel comfortable in his presence. His ability to so accurately portray our 11 year relationship after a coffee meeting blew us away. We couldn't have been happier with Mark!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Rachael & Andy!!! You guys are the best. Thanks for being sooo chilled during the whole process and of course during the ceremony itself. You, alongside Diogi, were absolute superstars up there! I hope you had an amazing night, and thank you so so much for the kind words :)

We can’t thank Mark enough for marrying us on our special day. He is truly the loveliest guy which is fitting for his job! I had so many people comment how kind and funny mark was on the day. I was just sad I missed the pre ceremony so couldn’t be apart of it haha! Mark made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole ceremony which was amazing cause I was very nervous! Everything was so easy to organise with you and I would recommend you in a heartbeat. Laurence’s final comments “what a good bloke”! Ash and laurence 03.12.2021

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

You guys!!! Thanks soooo much for the lovely words. I'm so glad you had a great time and that you felt comfortable during the ceremony (what do ya mean there were flies!? haha!)...it was an absolute pleasure getting to know you guys and an honour to get you married :)

Mark was amazing! Due to covid, we had a last-minute hiccup with our original celebrant, and Mark effortlessly swooped in to save the day. He was funny, charming and gave us the relaxed but romantic vibe we were aiming for!

23 Oct 2021

Where do I even begin with Mark?! From the day we first reach out to Mark well over a year ago til the wedding and even since then, he has been incredible! The experience for us planning the ceremony was so effortless, fun and not at all stressful. In the multiple catch-ups leading to the wedding it was just like chatting to a mate and was all very natural. On the wedding day no detail was left behind, he had our guest in laugher and tears (happy tears) he knows how to read the room and goes with the flow. We are honestly beyond happy we had Mark as our celebrant and a part of our special day, could not recommend him enough!!!

1 Oct 2021

Mark was absolutely incredible!!!! As soon as we finished our first meeting at the pub, we knew he was the celebrant for us! From the moment we first met him to the week after our big day he was there for us and just amazing. He made the experience so easy and fun and he is extremely organised. He exceeded all of our expectations from day one. Every little detail was covered with Mark and he made our day extra special. Our guests even thought he was our friend because he knew us so well and told our 'story' perfectly. We had Mark perform some background music while our guests had drinks and the bridal party had photos. Everyone commented on how amazing he was. Mark is so talented and we are so glad we chose him to marry us. Thank you so much Mark, you are WONDERFUL!

We had the most incredible ceremony, all thanks to Mark. He made the whole process so easy and was wonderful to work with, making us feel so comfortable telling our story. We told Mark all about how we met and our relationship and he created a beautiful, funny and meaningful ceremony that had everyone laughing and in happy tears. Mark had everything organised perfectly and I didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. All of our friends and family still talk about how amazing the ceremony was, I can’t wait to watch our video back. Thank you Mark!

28 Apr 2021

Highly highly HIGHLY recommend! Mark feels like friend from way back right from the get go. So easy to deal with & professional yet cruisy, humble & personal. Can’t thank you enough for making everything so stress free for us :) We love you!

17 Apr 2021

Mark was absolutely amazing from the get go. He was super organised and did everything he could to make our day next level. He was so easy to talk to and it felt like we were talking to an old friend. We got so many comments about how great he was and even had people tell us that he’s the best celebrant that they’ve ever seen. It was an incredible pleasure to work with you Mark! Thankyou for making our day amazing.

11 Apr 2021

I cannot thank Mark enough for being our celebrant, I am so glad we found and chose him! He is such a lovely guy and was super organised the whole way through. He helped us so much and we had so many laughs along the way too. The ceremony was perfect and we had such a good vibe, so many people commented on how great he was! He made us laugh and feel comfortable and the whole ceremony went through without a hitch! I highly, highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Mark!

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!
