Mark Simpson - Celebrant, MC & DJ SupplierHero Marriage Celebrant 30 +


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.

There are 4 forms that need to be completed through the process of your marriage. They are -

1 Notice Of Intent To Marry

2 Declaration Of No Legal Impediment

3 Official Marriage Certificate (x2)

4 Form 15

The Notice Of Intent To Marry is the first. It needs to be completed, signed and in the posession of your marriage celebrant at least one month before your wedding day. It also only lasts for 18 months so if your wedding is delayed you may need to complete a new Notice closer to the wedding day.

Next is the Declaration Of No Legal Impediment. This needs to be completed as close to the ceremony as possible and can be signed on the day of the wedding, but must be signed before the ceremony. This form is a declaration by both parties to the marriage that they are legally allowed to marry. By signing you are confirming that you are not already married to each other, that you're not married to anyone else, that you are not underage and that you are not related to each other.

The remaining pieces of paperwork are to be completed during the ceremony.

The Official Marriage Certificate actually needs to be completed twice. This is so that one form can be sent to Births Deaths & Marriages, and the other can be kept by the celebrant. Most celebrants send the paperwork to BDM via an online portal, so having two certificates doesn't seem necessary, however signing both is part of the legislation so it still needs to be done this way.

The last is the Form 15. Despite this formal sounding name, this is the 'pretty certificate' that you might like to have framed. It may be printed with nice caligraphy. It has no legal bearing, but does have a registration number, is what you are given on the day, and can't be reprinted or replaced.

And that's it. Your Celebrant will be able to ensure all of these happen at the right time so you don't have to worry too much about the timings. It is our job to make sure you sign when necessary and know what is happening.

I do! The vast majority of my ceremonies take place outdoors where there is no power, so I have a top of the line, battery operated speaker and microphone set up. It is a Bose S1 speaker, with a Sennheiser wireless microphone. The speaker is also equipped with Blue Tooth connection so if you don't have live musicians, I can play music for your ceremony through my speaker which I opperate through my iPad. I also play selected background music before your ceremony as your guests are gathering.

My ceremonies generally go for about half an hour. This is usually a good length to get the required stuff done, tell your story, and keep your guests entertained without dragging on and exhausting everyone's attention span.

My Elopement ceremonies are a little shorter at around 20 minutes and my Legals Only ceremonies are even shorter at 5-10 minutes.

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 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

Mark was the perfect choice for our celebrant. We were quite wary when it came to choosing our celebrant as we found most celebrants to be 'over the top' and a little too 'cheesy''. We told Mark how we wanted our ceremony and he executed it PERFECTLY!! Mark was also our MC and he brought the perfect vibe to our day. We had lots of guests tell us how friendly Mark was and several also noted that the ceremony was an accurate display of exactly who we are as a couple. Mark is charismatic, witty, easy to chat to and a downright legend. You won't regret booking Mark for your special day.

Mark was such a blessing to our special day. I have known Mark for years and have always had such a fondness of him and when my (now) wife and I were talking about celebrants I said “I can’t have anyone else.” He told our love story so beautifully, kept the laughs rolling when it was light and truly captured the essence of our day. Not only just as our celebrant, but as our MC AND DJ!!! You can’t pay the amount we did and then expect to be as blown away as we were. Affordable, Worth every cent, Loving, Caring and just the most down to earth person. If you’re getting married and need a celebrant, HE IS YOUR MAN!!!

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!

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.
