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!

Mark Townsend is a professional Wedding Celebrant in Hereford and member of the Association of Independent Celebrants. He was once a C of E Vicar but is now an independent priest within the Progressive Christian Alliance who offers ceremonies to all people regardless of faith, culture, sexuality or background.
Mark offers a variety of services that help couples express their love and commitment including traditional wedding blessings, renewal of marriage vows, handfasting ceremonies and blessings for civil partnerships. These are not confined to a church and can be in any mutually agreed setting.
The ceremonies are offered to all those who wish to celebrate their relationship: gay, straight, divorced, Humanist, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Druid or any other spiritual path. Mark draws on many traditions and helps couples create their own ceremony by offering templates and suggestions.
Mark performed a ceremony for some friends of mine and it was amazing!
Mark helped us to create a wedding day I thought existed in only in dreams. He was so flexible, warm, inspiring and professional. No one else could ever compare!
