about being a bilingual officiant in Paris:

I am your passionate, energetic, yet easy going wedding officiant in Paris with a long experience as a bilingual performer on reading- and poetry stages.”

“It is my great pleasure to witness and foster the strongest connection we know on this planet: true love, given to each other freely, and it finds it’s highest expression in the wedding ceremony. I take great pride in being able to create the atmosphere that makes for a good ceremony, somewhere in between dignified and light-hearted, serious and funny, uplifting and grounding, and in any case: romantic.”

“Every ceremony is a unique experience because it is you and your love story that are unique. My goal is to create an environment that you feel comfortable in.
Where you can feel what you feel for each other, without a need for moderation.
These are the moments I am very thankful for.
I am looking forward to creating a very special ceremony with and for you, and to finding out what motivates your story as a couple.”

We hired Marcus to officiate our Paris elopement wedding at the Eiffel Tower and WOW! He was truly such a gem! From the planning process up to the wedding day, he was so patient and sweet. Marcus asked great questions through email to make the ceremony fit us and offered excellent advice and tips before we arrived in Paris. It was exactly what we wanted and was very easy.
On the day of our wedding, he had prepared the most perfect speech for our ceremony and gave us so much advice (because of course we were very nervous and emotional).

We had a few guests attend our Paris elopement ceremony and he spoke to every one of them. All of our guests RAVED about his kindness and great English. William and I are so thankful to you Marcus and the entire team of The Paris Celebrants!

Jay & Allen

“Words cannot describe how our marriage officiant Marcus and The Paris Celebrants made our wedding day. From the initial engagement to planning to the actual day when we were eloping in Paris.
Not to mention Marcus was kind enough to make all my requests happen as I tried to arrange everything without my husband knowing as a big surprise. Also Marcus was able to catch our love story and make it part of our ceremony, looking back it gave us more reason why we were there in the first place, to celebrate love and unconditionally choose each other no matter what.
Thank you Marcus it was a pleasure to have you as our officiant for our queer elopement wedding in Paris. We would highly recommend Marcus and The Paris Celebrants for any ceremony!”

Bethanie & Ryan

“We felt so blessed to have received Marcus as our marriage celebrant. I can not recommend him enough! I surprised my husband with a vow renewal service on our 10th wedding anniversary in Paris at the Eiffel Tower.
Our bilingual officiant Marcus was so wonderful to communicate along the way with me for weeks in advance! His personal touch on our ceremony script and wedding vows was so beautiful. He was an absolutely delightful person to have met on our travels to Paris.
What an amazing experience. Marcus was excellent, professional, and well-prepared and made our vow renewal in Pari an unforgettable experience. He will always hold a special place in our hearts!”

Amanda & Sam

“We celebrated a handfasting with Marcus as our officiant and Lucia as our photographer. I would 10/10 recommend officiant Marcus and The Paris Celebrants if you are looking for an intimate and truly romantic experience. They were kind, enthusiastic and the best that Paris has to offer. Our ceremony was customized to us, and I gave Marcus some grace to choose a poem in French he felt symbolized live, I was not disappointed. Book The Paris Celebrants for your elopement or vow renewal in Paris, you will not be disappointed!”

“Marcus from The Paris Celebrants was great to work with from the very beginning. He was very understanding and flexible, he offered great advice about our ceremony in Paris with him and was willing to cater to our needs. We both really loved his work and his style and he really put us at ease even if we met in person for the first time on our wedding day in Paris. We highly recommend him as your celebrant for your wedding elopement in Paris. Thanks Marcus!”
