Mark Townsend is an incredible human, passionate, personable, and extremely professional. We have worked with him over the last few years, and his ability to capture the essence of the ceremony is simply magical. One of the best celebrants we have had the pleasure of working with. Matthew Oliver, Wedding Planner

Mark is an amazing individual. We first contacted him to ask him to be the Celebrant for our Handfasting. Mark created the most beautiful service and managed to incorporate both Druidic themes along with more traditional Christian tenets. He spent much of his time and energy making certain that the service accommodated both our spiritual traditions. On the day, the ceremony was magical, and so many of the attendees afterwards commented that it was the most ‘beautiful’ service they had ever attended! We are so blessed to have chosen Mark for our special day. Kirsty, Ralph & Bronte
