Our Dream Ceremony Delivered

We feel beyond lucky that Mark was available to perform our ceremony. We knew we wanted our wedding to be fun, intimate & non-generic. From the moment we met to make sure the chemistry was a fit, we knew he would be able to deliver our dream ceremony. He took the time not only to get to know us as a couple but also to really learn our story. When we told him we were having a surprise wedding, he was immediately on board, He was able to provide any guidance we wanted as he had done surprise weddings in the past.

We were beyond thrilled with our ceremony & wish more couples realized that having a personal unique ceremony is an option. We laughed, we cried, he covered all the emotions. He is a natural public speaker and truly talented at what he does. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Our friends & family raved about the event & the ceremony. People asked us how long we had known him as they thought he must have been a friend. One of our guests even stated it was the best wedding she had ever been to (don’t tell her husband!).

He was worth every penny as he definitely made our special day even more fantastic than we could have imagined.

Amazing Officiant!

Mark is a truly wonderful officiant! He really puts in the time to get to know the couple and figure out what makes them unique. He not only does a workshop with the couple to better understand their relationship, but also reaches out to your friends and family to get their stories about the couple, in order to put together a beautiful story for the big day. He is very organized and puts any concerns you may have at ease with his vast knowledge and friendly personality. Long story short, hire Mark if you'd like a great officiant that will make your wedding ceremony different from all the rest!

AMAZING experience!

Mark was absolutely incredible to work with! Our ceremony was so personalized to our story and we loved every minute of it! We all laughed and cried and laughed even more - we even had guests come up to us after to tell us how amazing our officiant was and wondered if he was actually a friend of ours! Words can't express how special he helped make our day! Thanks so much!

Unboring for sure - but so much more.

Perfection. Flawless. Amazing. Wow. We had many of our family members ask how long we’ve known Mark! They thought he was one of our best friends because of how flawlessly he told our story. Mark was amazing and professional from the first meeting. He took the time to get to know us, and it truly paid off during the ceremony. WOW. We laughed, we cried, then we laughed some more. It was such an amazing part of the day and something we will NEVER forget. We recommend Mark WITHOUT A DOUBT. Book him if you can, he’s the best in the biz!! Worth every penny. Thank you again, Mark!

Awesome, entertaining wedding for us and our guests!

My husband and I asked Mark to be our officiant in 2019, after meeting with him in a local coffee shop to ensure we were a good match.

We ended up having to postpone our wedding due to Covid. During a stressful time for us, Mark was flexible with our date and easy to contact. He was friendly throughout the planning process and always available to answer our questions.

When it came to our wedding ceremony, we knew that we wanted something entertaining. We wanted the ceremony to be about us and our story. Mark absolutely nailed it. He had our guests and us laughing and crying. He made sure our wedding ceremony was tailored to our story and who we are as a couple.

I have been to a few different ceremonies and although everyone's wedding day is of course special and unique, I cannot recommend anyone other than Mark. He helped to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. All of our guests have told us how wonderful our ceremony was, and how much they enjoyed our officiant and hearing our story.

We are so lucky to have someone like Mark in our community!

Definitely Unboring!

I really do not have the words to truly express how happy we were with Mark during the entire process - simply put, he is INCREDIBLE! Not only did we think he was amazingly awesome, but our guests and other vendors commented over and over about how fantastic he was!

Deciding who was going to officiate our wedding was a big decision for us.
We knew we didn’t not want a religious ceremony (although he does religious ceremonies too) and it was very important to us that things be kept light hearted, personal and fun. I stumbled across the Uboring!Wedding site by accident and from the website I immediately went on YouTube and found some of the ceremonies he had performed prior - I was completely sold!

Mark is punctual, organized, professional, attentive, charismatic and a fantastic story-teller. He has no problem taking control of situations and in addition to making you truly feel taken care of, he goes out of his way to please - the night before the wedding he even typed out all of my husband’s wedding vows and formatted them after the saved copy had accidentally been deleted and all we had left was a paper copy of an unformatted mess in the tiniest font imaginable!

I can’t imagine anyone ever being anything but 550% thrilled after having Mark handle their special day! Do yourself a favour and book him the MOMENT you get engaged - I promise, you’ll be so happy you did!

Mark - if you are reading this, I’ve got a small token of thanks that will be headed your way within the next few weeks. Thank you so, so much for our “anything but boring” wedding day!

Hurry up and book Mark for your wedding!

If I could add a 6th, 7th or 100th star I would! Like many, we had to cancel our wedding due to Covid. Six weeks ago, we decided we couldn't wait and planned a spontaneous wedding for Thanksgiving weekend. I honestly wasn't sure if we needed the extra services that Mark offered, but I can say now with 1000% certainty, we COULD NOT have done this without him. Not only that, but the way he told our story made our wedding one that people will remember for a long time. We were told that our ceremony was the best people had been too (and it wasn't because of us, it was because of Mark). If you haven't booked him yet, what the heck are you waiting for!?!

Make sure that you have him check the date, twice!

We had hired Mark a year and a half in advance of our wedding. 7 months before our wedding Mark e-mailed us, he didn't attempt to call, to inform us that he had double booked us and that we were now out an officiant. He didn't provide an alternative or back-up officiant. He offered us his cheaper package where he'd write our wedding ceremony for us, but we would need to find someone to officiate for us. He didn't provide us a discount for this option, but he did offer to drive up late in the evening to have the marriage certificate signed. Overall, I was not impressed that he emailed us the bad news rather than call us, that he double booked us, and that he didn't provide any assistance in finding an officiant now that it was much closer to the wedding date. I would not recommend using this vendor.
