Hi I’m Mark Byrne
– Gold Coast Celebrant

Thank you for visiting , my name is Mark Byrne, and I am an experienced and registered Marriage Celebrant with the Office of the Australian Attorney-General. My services are available for Wedding Ceremonies, Naming Ceremonies, Vow Renewals, Commitment Ceremonies, Memorials & Funerals or any other special ceremonies that require one who celebrates at your milestone events.

The connection between you and your Celebrant is the key factor in creating the Ceremony you want, however simple or intricate . It’s all a matter of Trust- you should feel completely relaxed and confident in their ability to deliver what you want. My job is to make your ceremony as stress-free and meaningful as possible for you

Wedding Ceremonies

My unique & distinctive technique is rather to guide & work together with you so that we can style & furnish a stress-free precise wedding ceremony, that will be at the right vibe focusing totally on your gratification with the delight of your guests all in mind.
My promise and guarantee to you are to have pro-active open working communications & relationships throughout your entire journey & I will then clinch all the legal documentation promptly after the ceremony into the Birth Deaths & Marriages, all on time.

Elopement & Micro Weddings – Gold Coast Celebrant

A micro wedding is an intimate affair, typically with no more than 20 guests. They still feature time-honoured traditions that make a wedding but on a much smaller scale.

There is something incredibly special about an intimate wedding. Imagine your dream day, but on a smaller scale, allowing you to truly embrace every moment. Our curated elopement and micro wedding experiences are each as unique as your own love story, individually tailored to reflect your style and vision. Contact Mark today to discuss your requirements.

My Goal

My goal is to bring a fun, relaxed and modern approach to what your wedding ceremony can be. With your input together we can come up with something that fits just right for your big day. That’s why I love being a Celebrant on the Gold Coast!

Your wedding ceremony really can be anything that you want it to be. You and your guests should laugh. You’re allowed to shed a few tears or stumble through your vows because that’s all part of it being real. Your wedding ceremony should reflect who you are as a couple and best of all kick start the celebrations for one of the most amazing days of your life.

I am proud and honoured to be your Gold Coast Wedding Celebrant

Take your time. We’ll manage everything.

The Process

Before taking on new clients I like to meet-up or have a chat first. This is often over a beer, or at a café if that’s more your vibe, or if meeting in person isn’t an option we can have a Skype or FaceTime chat.

This chat helps us both get a feel for each other, we talk about your ideas and you can then decide if you think I’d be a good fit as your Marriage Celebrant on The Gold Coast.

It is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about the process and what’s involved.

My husband and myself had Mark emcee and DJ our wedding on the 27th April 2022 and we are beyond happy with our experience. All our guests commented on how fantastic and warm Mark was and how impressed they were with the music choices. From a personal perspective, Mark was without a doubt our most organised vendor and I didn't need to chase him once (this is so appreciated when you are planning a wedding). He constantly checked in with us to make sure our day was everything we wanted and was so cool, calm, and collected on the day. We would absolutely recommend Mark and FMK Entertainments for your wedding or special event. Thank you very much Mark for making our special day that much more amazing!

We would recommend Mark 💯 to everyone he did a fantastic job helping us to organise our wedding. Extremely helpful every step of the way. We had the privilege of Mark being our wedding celebrant, MC & DJ ( with a extra DJ helping him keep the party running smoothly when he was busy making sure everything was going just the way we wanted) He made our wedding day a day we will truly never forget 🥰

Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. We met Mark at a Wedding Expo and knew right away he would be the best DJ for our Handfasting. He spent time talking with us at the Expo, attended our home and spent over an hour going over the songs we would need, people and their titles for the event and special requests. Mark then met with us at the Venue just prior to our date, made sure he had exactly the right songs we had chosen, that the microphones, speakers and all lighting would be in the correct locations. On the night of our event, Mark stood up and assisted with MC duties, guided us through timings and was extremely well presented. Mark even helped us with finding a photographer at the last minute, when ours cancelled. I highly recommend Mark and FMK Entertainment for any event. He is personable, goes above and beyond, provides excellent insight and is just a wonderful man to work with, especially for a unique event like ours was. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark.

Sarah and I Celebrated our Wedding November 2021. I initially contacted Mark from FMK to be the DJ as i had attended the launch party off a friends Company and Mark was the MC and DJ there. He asked me if we had a Celebrant and i said no, not yet as we had very specific requirements, So he mentioned that he was also a Celebrant, we arranged a time to meet Sarah and all was locked in place, Mark went well beyond what i would have expected anyone to do. Having Mark as the Celebrant, MC and DJ was simply so good, actually he also turned into being the entire Wedding Planner lol. As he continually contacted me making sure i had done what i was supposed to do, Including continually chasing me for my vows, that i completed the night before the actually Wedding 🙂 My bad, but Mark just took it in his stride and it simply made 'Our Day' so much nicer! He liaised with the Venue where we were married, the photographers, the caterers and as we had the reception at our home, he also mingled with and kept the 50 odd guests entertained while we were out and getting photos done, Was like a 'one stop shop' that simply took so much from our hands! I have no words for all the effort Mark went to and if anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me directly, I'm pretty easy to find, Mark 'Salty' Smith. Thanks Mark, Sarah and i truly appreciate your efforts!

My personal dealings with this guy, Mark Byrne is that he is shifty! My advise would be to please be careful in any business dealings with him.
