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 such a great wedding celebrant. Our wedding was actually delayed for a year due to COVID, so we ended up getting married by a differnt celebrant in our hometown. Mark was so great with helping out with this (sending the license etc) and was then even more amazing for the ceremony itself. We loved the extra details from our lives that he worked into the ceremony, we loved how relaxed he was and how relaxed he made the ceremony and just how well everything worked out, thanks to his planning and relaxed manner. We got so many compliments from our guests on how great our ceremony was thanks to Mark.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Oh you guys! Thanks so much for the lovely words - you did so well in staying strong and rolling with the punches around this time last year! And while the big celebration just had to wait a little bit, I'm so glad we could keep everything exactly how it was meant to be and I had so much fun getting you guys "hitched" hehe. Thanks so much again for having me you lovely people :)

15 May 2022

Well, Mark was definitely one of the best marriage celebrants that I have come across. He was extremely polite and well spoken at our wedding, with many of the guests commenting on how great the celebrant was. I would highly recommend Mark Kenny to any couple who wants to enjoy their wedding with the best people possible.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Thanks so much mate! You guys are the best :)

The Markster! We were so fortunate to find him on WA Hitchers, first time we met him hands down we wanted him to marry us off. He has this awesome charm is down to earth, patient, understanding and well spoken. Our ceremony was full of smiles, joy and laughter as Mark has a novelty to keep things interesting. We didn’t just have him for our ceremony but the whole package he was our MC and DJ!! I didn’t expect a DJ Tiesto anyway he was amazing as our DJ and MC for the night. All of Josh and my family absolutely loved him and hasn’t stop talking about him since the wedding, they even want to use him for future services for other special occasions!!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Aw Hilary this is so lovely of you to say! I really appreciate it and I'm glad you guys had an awesome time. Thanks so much for being so welcoming and really making me feel like part of the family for the night hehe.

17 Apr 2022

Mark has been an absolute dream, from our first consult to our special day he has been so incredibly friendly and helpful from reviewing our vows to telling our story during the ceremony. Would reccomend to anyone that wants a heart felt yet fun and enjoyable ceremony!! Thanks again Mark x

15 Apr 2022

Very easy to communicate with and super easy going. It was great having Mark as our celebrant, MC and budget DJ. He does an amazing job!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Woohoo! Thanks so much Jemma! I had an awesome time getting to know you both, and of course getting you married and hanging out all night too! :)

15 Apr 2022

Mark was not only an amazing celebrant, he also was our MC our budget DJ for the night as well!!

8 Apr 2022

Easily one of the best decisions we made in the lead up to our wedding was booking Mark for our ceremony and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to book a celebrant! We were worried that our 'story' wasn't romantic or interesting enough, but Mark managed to create the most incredible ceremony that was the pefect mixture of lighthearted and sentimental moments and captured the essence of 'us' so perfectly. With so many guests watching from afar on livestream, Mark did an amazing job of including them, and so many of them commented afterwards that they felt like they were right there. Thanks again Mark for playing such a big role in our day running so perfectly! Louise and Iain x

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Awww this is just too lovely of you guys. I had SO much fun not just during your ceremony, but getting to know you both as well. And I now completely understand your love of Taylor Swift as she's been constantly playing on our tv recently thanks to our 2 and a half year old who is almost as obsessed as you guys hehehe.

31 Mar 2022

Our wedding day was perfect and our friends and family have told me it’s the best ceremony they have ever seen. Full of laughter and love, I felt relaxed and comfortable standing & talking in front of everyone. Mark is a very friendly, down to earth guy. Mark was super helpful and prepared us for something I thought would be really nerve racking. He even convinced us to do our own vows, which ended up to be my favourite part of the ceremony. Mark is very punctual and organised. He sent us questionnaires that we’re super quick and easy to fill out & was quick to respond with any questions we had for him. Overall we would recommend Mark Kenny for your wedding as a Celebrant, MC & DJ as he was fantastic at all three and can’t thank him enough for helping the day run so smoothly.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Wowee Leearna! You two are way too kind. Thanks so much for the lovely words, and the pleasure was all mine! You guys made everything so easy which allowed me to simply be myself and help make your big day/night as special as possible. I'm so glad you, as well as your family and friends, had an awesome time :)

12 Mar 2022

Thank you very much, Mark for being a part of our special day on the 12 March 2022. We had the best package deal: Celebrant, MC, Singer and an amazing guy who we now call our friend. Royce and I appreciate you being the most amazing, cheerful celebrant and MC at our wedding. All of guests and even our live stream guests were asking if Mark was Royce's cousin or friend as he knew us so well :) the ceremony was performed beautifully and so relaxed and we are so happy we chose him to our MC to entertain throughout the night and it ended so beautifully by Mark singing our first dance songs. Thank you so much from the start of the process till the end. Our family and friends at the wedding absolutely adored you. Lots of love, Pooja and Royce Fergusson

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Eeeeee Pooja and Royce you absolute legends!!! Thanks so much again for having play such a big part in your day - it was my absolute pleasure. You were both so welcoming and, along with your beautiful family and friends, really made me feel like I was part of your crew hehe. I appreciate it so much! It was such an awesome night! A massive congrats again to you both xo

26 Feb 2022

Mark was fantastic to work with and if we did it all again we'd choose Mark to marry us every time! With the perfect balance of fun and formal and the ability to customise any part along the way we were very happy to deal with Mark and I recommend him 💯% for your formal events!

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Liz and Dazzaaaa you absolute beauties! A big big thank you again for having me there on your special day - it was my absolute pleasure to be part of it, and I feel so lucky to have gotten to know you both! Massive congrats again, and all the best for what I'm sure will be an amazing marriage :)

22 Feb 2022

Do yourself a favour and book Mark as your wedding celebrant! Im 100% sure you wouldn’t regret it! I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know who’s getting married. He’s very nice, bubbly, and accommodating! All of my guests were charmed and impressed by him. And, he wasn’t just our wedding celebrant.. he was also our MC and DJ! I cant thank him enough for also accommodating my request of wearing a traditional suit on my wedding. If ever my husband and I decided to renew our vows, we would definitely contact him again.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

Thanks soooo much for the kind words Niki! I had such an awesome time getting to know you both, and then hanging out all night too :)

13 Feb 2022

Mark was one of, if not the best decision we made in regards to having Mark involved with our wedding. We engaged Mark as our celebrant and MC. I would recommend Mark to anyone. Mark was always happy to assist leading up to the wedding and was such good support throughout the big day. Absolute legend. Matt & Kim.

Mark Kenny Celebrations  

You guuuuys!!! I had such a fun time getting you both hitched and spending the night with your people! Such an amazing bunch. A huge congrats again to you both!!!
