YOU DESERVE SOMETHING
EXCEPTIONAL

I've been kickstarting marriages for many years and from what couples and their guests tell me, I'm good at it.  In fact, most of my clients are referrals from previous clients, because their experience was too good not to share.  When you book with me, you get the full package. I don't discount packages because I give my all into every service I offer. 

After getting to know you and your story, I carefully craft a ceremony that is speaks volumes into who you are.  I work hard to ensure your journey to the threshold of marriage is stress-free, clear and exactly what you want it to be. I don't want to create another boring ceremony, I create memories that will leave everyone talking for all the right reasons.  

If you want to start the rest of your life with a ceremony that's worthy of such a commitment then book your date, before someone else does. 

GET EVERYONE TALKING FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS

We can meet as many times as you like and I'll provide you with a full copy of your ceremony script so you know exactly how it's going to work. 

On the day, I'll be there early, make sure everything is on point, I'll calm the boys and support the groom as he waits for his bride to walk down the aisle. I'll work with your photographers to ensure your photos are the best.

GLENN & KARLY, SURFERS PARADISE

"From the very first contact we had with Mark, throughout the planning process to the wedding and after everything was absolutely perfect.  We had 100% confidence that he was our man. There was no need to meet another celebrant or think about it we booked on our first meeting.
 
He could see what type of couple we were and knew exactly how to cater to our needs. He is so passionate about what he does and absolutely did not take our business for granted.

 

I would recommend everyone book Mark for their wedding (do it, I mean it) you won’t regret it. "

  • Is Zoom just as effective as In-Person Counselling?
    In most cases, my clients have found zoom to be better that in-person. People are more relaxed in the privacy of their own home, this helps them relax and open up more; as a result they achieve better results. Zoom is also more convenient. It saves you spending additional dollars on babysitting, fuel and parking costs. Not mention the time saved in travel.
  • How Many Sessions Do We Need?
    That depends on the results of your pre-counselling assessment, the issues you're facing and how long you've been struggling. Usually after the first session I will provide a roadmap of where we're headed via email. My goal is not to keep you in counselling and there's no commitment to any number of sessions. Just book one at a time. If you're interested in pre-marriage counselling, most couples need between 3 and 5 sessions. Once your results are in you will be told how many sessions are recommended. There is no obligation to commit to any number of sessions.
  • What Happens in the Sessions?
    In first session we'll discuss why you've sought counselling and what your goals are. You'll receive a brief overview of your assessment results and you'll be given tools and strategies (homework) to apply to your relationship right away. Each session is one hour long with 50 allocated to counselling and 10 minutes to my professional note taking.
  • What's the Cost?
    All the fees are listed on the Register Page. Session start at $110 online or $150 in person (at my Gold Coast office). Payment is required at the time of booking. The cost to complete the Pre-Counselling Assessment is $46 per couple. Payment is made when you access the online portal to complete the assessment. The first person to login makes payment for both of you.
  • What's the Pre-Counselling Assessment About?
    This is a thorough multi choice quiz that both partners complete independently. It covers a broad range of dynamics and is tailored to your unique circumstances. After registering for counselling you'll both receive an email from Prepare Enrich - the assessment provider - click the link in the email to access the online portal and complete your quiz. It will take you about 40 minutes to do so. Your results are compared and contrasted highlighting the strengths and weaker areas of your relationship. This information is used to form the basis of the counselling program.
  • What's Your Availability Like?
    I work business hours Monday to Friday. Three days a week the latest session is held at 7:30pm (AEST), that's 8:30pm for people on the East Coast outside of Queensland during daylight saving. Saturday morning and afternoon. Sunday afternoon. Usually evenings are booked up a week or two in advance. Generally you can book a business hours spot the week before or the week of your desired appointment time.
  • What if My Partner Isn't Ready for Counselling?
    I recommend two options: Purchase The Best Married Life - Essentials Course and complete this short course together - it's basically a couple of counselling sessions rolled into an online course. Or, Start the counselling process without your partner. Don't waste any more time. You make some change alone to improve your relationship. Hopefully your partner will join you once they see the change. NB: If attending alone, you only need to complete the free, brief individual pre-counselling assessment.
  • What's the Process?
    Step 1 - Complete the registration form Step 2 - You'll receive an email with access to your pre-counselling assessment Step 3 - Once your completed questionnaire is processed you receive another email containing a link to book your sessions. Payment is made at the time of booking. Once you make a booking, you'll receive an email with a zoom link and calendar invite. After the first session you'll receive an email with an outline (plan) on where the counselling journey will go, based on the results of your pre-counselling assessment and the first session. If you're attending counselling as an individual, you don't need to complete the pre-counselling assessment - just book a session.
