OVERVIEW

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

About

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.

Hello Mark! Bec and I wanted to thank you so much for the amazing work you did as our MC and DJ. We appreciated the time and effort you put in before the wedding, meeting up with us twice in person, and the multiple emails/phone calls/texts to ensure you got to know us and understood everything we wanted. Thank you for considering all of our playlists that we made for the wedding and we appreciate how you included all the songs at the specific times of the night we requested them. Bec is especially grateful for the amazing entries and how you executed what she wanted so well. You were so charismatic and made us laugh so much. Also we have had many requests for our wedding play list from our guests, as you played banger after banger. We hope to see you around Crows Nest. cheers and all the best, Adam and Bec.

I'm so glad that we had Mark as our celebrant and DJ. He has a wonderful sense of humour, he's professional, and he really took into account what we wanted in our ceremony. He made the admin side of marriage (all the legal papers, etc) much easier for us. He was also happy to include some of our Jewish traditions. Perhaps most importantly, Mark is a fantastic public speaker with a natural stage presence who kept everyone engaged. Thanks to Mark, we had a dream ceremony that all the guests enjoyed, too.

We loved having Mark as our celebrant and MC. From the first meeting we felt at ease and he was able to perfectly capture our personalities and the vibe we were going for. Our guests all commented on how awesome he was and how well he blended into our reception. Mark was amazing at calming our nerves on the day and taking some of the stress of our plates. Could not recommend Mark enough!!

When I came across Mark I was searching for someone funny, kind, humerous. He did not disappoint! I feel like the Celebrant and the MC is the heart beat of the wedding and Mark really set the seen and the atmosphere for what was a fun and vibrant celebration. He is a very cool and charming fella, lots of friends and family thought he was our friend because of how comfortable he made all our guests. I was so chuffed to get these reviews from my friends and fam the following the day and I'm so happy with my decision. Leading up to the big day the whole process was smooth sailing as well. With the paper work and questionnaires etc. It couldn't have been a smoother process. Thanks 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.

Regards,

Mark
