I offer a variety of services that help couples express their love and commitment. These include traditional wedding blessings, renewals of marriage vows, handfasting ceremonies and blessings for civil partnerships.
My ceremonies are not confined to a church and can be in any setting, mutually agreed upon by myself and the couple. Hence I’ve married couples in forests, on beaches, up mountains, in football stadiums and even inside Stone Henge!
Since 21st December 2005 same-sex couples in the UK have been able to have their relationships legally recognised in the same way as mixed-sex couples. I have been privileged to conduct ceremonies for same-sex couples and mixed-sex couples following a Register Office ceremony.
My ceremonies offer unconditional love and openness for all who wish to celebrate their relationship, whether gay, straight, divorced, Humanist, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Druid or any other spiritual path.
I draw upon many traditions as I design these ceremonies. And I also love to help couples create their own ceremonies by offering various templates and suggestions.

Mark was the perfect man to guide us through the beautiful ceremony of marriage. His warm caring nature meant that our service was perfectly adapted for us and our family. So many of our friends expressed how it was the most wonderful service they had ever been to and how true it felt. He is a unique Rev in every way! Jade Jagger and Adrian Fillary
Mark performed a ceremony for some friends of mine and it was amazing! Kate Moss
For those of you that have discovered Aynhoe Park, I like to be confident that couples are given the best possible experience. As a ‘Wedding Celebrant with a difference’ Mark has proved himself time and time again in this regard. Clients and guests alike are always thrilled with his uniqueness, and the gentle care taken over every detail. James Perkins
Mark helped us to create a wedding day I thought existed in only in dreams. He was so flexible, warm, inspiring and professional. Nothing was a problem, when stuck he offered support and had ideas that we loved. He is unique in his approach and has touches that no one else could offer. No one else could ever compare! Linda and Toby
We cannot recommend Mark highly enough. He officiated at our humanist wedding ceremony last October, & was superb. His pitch & tone was just right throughout. Mark was sensitive, charming, supportive & encouraging.
Mark had necessarily & quite rightly informed us of difficult family circumstances that had arisen shortly before our big day. He determined to carry on & did so with such aplomb & professionalism.
Quite a smoothy our Mark, I am jealous. A mix of Simon Cowell, George Michael & James Bond (one of the jokes I forgot in my woeful speech!)
We had one hiccup in proceedings, with which Mark dealt with eminently suitable light touch & grace.
Above all, perhaps, Mark is a natural. Andrea & Philip
