Why you should have me as both celebrant & MC!


You’ve thought about your celebrant, but what about your MC? Many people will ask a good friend to take on that role, but before you decide to do that, here are some reasons you may want a more experienced person to handle your reception logistics:

  1. Public speaking is on many people’s list of greatest fears in life. (fun fact- it has a name, ‘glossophobia’). Ideally, you want an MC who is confident in the role so you can let your guests relax and not have to stress about hosting your reception.
  2. Let your guests have some drinks and be happy, without them worrying throughout the night about what is coming up next. Also, I will not be drinking alcohol!
  3. I will also not be waving the microphone around, creating feedback, speaking too softly/shouting into the mic, and will not be sitting on the toilet when the cake cutting is due to begin.
  4. I know how to liaise with the venue staff, photographers, videographers, DJs, speakers, etc and what is important in terms of timing and keeping everything to schedule.
  5. Your venue will thank you for having a professional MC! So will your photographer, for ensuring they are kept informed of when the important moments are about to happen. Most of all, so will the caterers.
  6. I can coach your speakers on how and where to stand and mic technique prior, AND part of my MC service is providing a document to all your speakers on how to give a killer speech.
  7. Having someone to remain calm and troubleshoot if any issues arise (bonus- I’m a former Paramedic in case of medical emergencies!)
