If a wedding ceremony filled with laughter, fun, and a dash of sentiment sounds perfect to you, then celebrant Mark Simpson is a terrific find. This dynamic, Sydney-based celebrant is as engaging as they come, and with 20+ years in musical theatre, TV, and film, it’s not hard to see why. Confident and energetic, Mark will officiate a beautiful, vibrant ceremony that you'll treasure forever.

Situated in Sydney, Mark Simpson is a confident, fun celebrant with a penchant for designing and officiating joy-filled ceremonies. A former children’s entertainer and musical theatre aficionado, Mark uses his creativity and confidence in front of audiences to deliver ceremonies in an engaging and entertaining manner - but that’s not to say he doesn’t perfectly balance lightheartedness and emotion. Mark manages to incorporate elements of both in his customised ceremonies, simultaneously keeping guests amused while adding touches of romance for his couples.

With a background in television and film, Mark is also excellent at remembering notes and lines - which really comes in handy when he acts as an MC. A fun and humorous MC, Mark brings his signature enjoyable energy to his role, while also checking off the necessary details, including where the loos are and when speeches will commence. Although his style leans more towards lighthearted, Mark can certainly dial up the formalities if you’re hoping for a more sophisticated occasion.

Not your average celebrant, Mark offers both these services in his ‘complete package’. This convenient wedding package includes a photobooth and MC and DJ services - pretty much everything you need to host a lively, stress-free wedding with all the frills.

"In our mind, there was no one else that we could imagine being the MC of our wedding reception other than Mark. Mark was an absolute hit with our guests and kept the laughter flowing throughout the night. Mark’s professional, lighthearted, and fun-filled approach was exactly what we had hoped for on the night, and he certainly delivered! If you are looking for an MC that is sure to make your wedding day or night an absolute success, Mark is your man!” Liz

Hi, I'm Mark. I'm an actor with a background in musical theatre, film and television. I've toured nationally and internationally with shows such as Hairspray, Kinky Boots and The Rocky Horror Show. I also worked for years as a puppeteer on children's television playing Pirate Hootbeard on Giggle & Hoot. This was excellent training for my new role as a dad. My wife and I were married on Sydney Harbour 2 years ago and now have a little red head named Griffin. Life's pretty good.

Mark was a class act and made our day even more special. He's eloquent, entertaining and makes sure to add a personal touch to every detail of a wedding, from the ceremony right through to the celebrations afterward (as he was our MC also). Thank you, Mark!

Mark was so awesome, he made our wedding day so wonderful. He is such a lovely person, we wanted a relaxed and fun day and he totally met all of our needs. I was so stressed organising our wedding but he made everything so easy and put my mind at ease. He is extremely professional and organised, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

What can we say about Mark, other than he was simply AMAZING!! My husband and I were nervous wrecks in the weeks leading up to the big day. We met up with Mark and boy oh boy so glad we did, we left that meet up with an enormous sense of relief. Mark really knows how to read a person, a room and navigate through any and all awkward situations. Did I mention he has a brilliant sense of humour, because he bloody does!!! Thank you for everything Mark. Natalia and Adam

Mark was absolutely amazing from our very first call with him, through to the wedding day itself! He was just a lovely person, who genuinely cared and wanted to do as much as he can to help make our day special, and to make us feel as comfortable as possible. He helped us immensely with getting prepared for the day, and on the day itself, really made both of us feel at ease and helped calm those ceremony nerves! It was the best day of our lives, and Mark really helped make it extra special. If you're looking for an amazing celebrant, please reach out to Mark!

Mark was our Celebrant, MC & DJ for our wedding and he was amazing. We wanted a someone who was fun and casual without being too cheesy and was the right amount of professional. Mark was exactly what we were looking for. He made sure we knew what we were doing through the ceremony and made sure the whole day went smoothly meaning we didn't have to worry about a thing. We had so many guests tell us how great he was, he wasn't just or MC or DJ at that point he became apart of the wedding. My wife and I would recommend Mark to anyone you won't be disappointed, Thanks again Mark

Certificate of marriage without the ceremony

Hi, we only need a certificate of marriage without a ceremony. This is for the partner visa application. Do you offer the service? How can we start, and what is the price? Can I have more details? Thank you.

Mark Simpson - Celebrant, MC & DJ

Hi there,

There is no option legally to get marriage certificates without a ceremony. For the marriage to be legal,-

  -the Notice of Intent to Marry must be completed 1 month prior to the ceremony

  -The Monitum must be said

  -you must each say the legal vows

  -you must have two witnesses over the age of 18

  -you must sign the 3 marriage certificates.

Just because it is called a ceremony doesn't mean it is particularly involved. I can do a legals only ceremony which needn't take more than 5 minutes to complete all of the above. It can also take place wherever you like. I can even come to your house and perform it in your kitchen.
