    We rated Mark’s work 5+++++++, when we pressed on five stars, for some unknown reasons, the page came back with four stars only. We tried to correct it, numerous times pressing on the stars, logging out and logging in again, still the site doesn’t allow us to correct this.
    It was a true blessing and guidance by God and our lucky stars that brought us to the Fash website where we found Mark. My husband and I had already had our private ceremony, just the two of us, away from home, and planned to have a blessing at a Chapel back home for our family and very close friends. From the first communication with Mark we felt sincere care, love and desire to create a deeply meaningful, unforgettable, unique experience. It already began to feel so special from the moment we were preparing our answers for Mark.
    Mark, we both feel blessed to have had you as our officiant. We have never experienced such a deep, touching, bonding ceremony as what you have created for us. Your experience, professionalism, advice and confidence made it feel so solid. The way you conducted the blessing, the way you connected us with each other, with our family and friends, went into our hearts so deeply, so meaningfully. Each word you said during the ceremony filled us with such significance that penetrated to the core of our hearts. Having you as our officiant felt as though we were in very strong, caring hands of a father who sets us both off on a journey of a lifetime together with his dearly loving blessing. Thank you, Mark, for being there for us.

    Mark was a wonderful wedding celebrant for us. He did a great job personalizing our wedding vows and made the wedding ceremony so pleasant and unique. Communication throughout was excellent and the whole process was very smooth. He is experienced, personable, and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him as a wedding celebrant and relationship/marriage coach! Thanks Mark!

    My wife and I had an amazing time working with Mark and Gail Smallcombe as our marriage counseling coaches. During our wedding day they were also by our side as we became Husband and Wife. From the get go, Marks experience as an officiant helped to put everyone at ease. From where to stand to what to say to help with changes that needed to be made. Marks humor, genuineness, charisma, and faith helped to make our wedding ceremony exceptional.

    Frequently asked questions

    First, have a phone conversation and see whether it feels like a match

    Second, meet the couple in person and talk through ideas of what the couple would like to include in the ceremony. I will also supply a brief questionnaire to discover special points to include that will make the ceremony personal, fun and memorable. 

    Third, we will make another connection to confirm everything is squared away and if I can be of any further assistance

    Fourth, I attend and help with logistics at the wedding rehearsal

    Fifth, I attend and perform a wonderful service for you both and take care of the marriage certificate and license signing and mailing to the registry.

    Finally, follow up with you if I can serve you further in any way
