I am committed to ‘creating, weaving and crafting’ a truly beautiful and personal ceremony that is stunningly memorable and totally unique.

Having worked alongside couples from a wide variety of backgrounds, faith, cultures and traditions, I have a warmth and intuitive affinity for all peoples – I am more than happy to perform a wedding with a genuine Christian component to it. Celebrancy is another dimension where I have expanded into giving, sharing, and adding to the most special and significant occasions in the lives of others.

Selected to officiate in so many stunningly romantic locations from sandy Mangawhai Heads in the north to the exquisite Queenstown in the south, from the raw cliff-tops of Piha to our spectacular Waiheke Island, (arguably one of the most popular wedding venues in New Zealand) I am happy to travel.

A unique and beautiful ceremony requires a ‘perfect fit’ with your celebrant – I warmly invite you to a no-obligation meeting where you will gain a wealth of preparation possibilities and where you may take the opportunity to commence the fun-filled planning for ‘the first day of your married life together’.

Mark really understood the dynamics of marrying us along with all the variables with us having our two boys included. The ceremony was special, inspiring and spoke about us as who we are as a family and why we chose to get married. Professional and friendly with huge empathy. Thanks for all your work.”

“Finding a celebrant who could or would write into the ceremony words from a ‘genuine Christian perspective’ was not easy, then we found you, Mark. The ceremony was fun, you took into consideration our faith and its importance to both of us. Our parents were super impressed, as were we. It was everything we could have asked for and by the way, the rehearsal was very special.”
