“Katrina's energy and passion for events are seen in the way she conducts herself in the planning of Monie and my wedding. Her intricacy in planning via her briefing meetings has greatly aided us in gathering a detailed understanding of how the evening would pan out and flesh out any potential causes for concern. Her bubbly personality and engaging character made it very comfortable for us to coordinate the details of the evening. She worked in synchronisation with our DJ, celebrant, venue coordinator, family and friends. Overall, Katrina was very entertaining. Her expression through linguistics of Cantonese and English garnered the entire crowd's attention assembling a wedding evening of laughter and fun. We would highly recommend Katrina for your next event!" — Michael + Monie. 

 

“We had the honour of having Katrina as our emcee at our wedding reception. She was energetic, bubbly, friendly, easily approachable, and perfect for multilingual events. Katrina is so organised leading up to our wedding. She made it super easy for my husband and I, and we could just rely on her and not need to be stressed with the events of the night. Everything went smoothly, and we are so glad to have Katrina as our emcee! We would highly recommend and refer Katrina to our friends and family. Thank you again, Katrina, for making our night super special and memorable!" — Hui + James.

Nope! I do English-only ceremonies and weddings too as I'm an Aussie-born Chinese.

We were looking for a bilingual celebrant and we're really lucky to have found Katrina. Katrina has such a bubbly, fun and warm personality, which helped us greatly (as my partner and I are both bit too shy to present ourselves in front of a crowd); she crafted a sweet ceremony script for us and made the whole process so easy! Katrina even guided us through and helped organise all the extra little details to take care of on the day, some of which I wasn't even aware of or have though about! She even helped coordinate our photos after the ceremony. Thank you so much Katrina, we're so happy to have had you with us!

Katrina is a great multilingual MC & Celebrant and we were really lucky to have found her. She is totally a gem; not only she is very professional in the way she does and organize things, she also has great personality. As you would imagine it would be very hectic preparing for the wedding day, and yet she was there guiding us through every milestone reaching out to the actual day while making sure everything is in order and patiently addressing our questions and concerns. She literally went above and beyond to make sure our special day, SPECIAL. A simple thank you is certainly won't be sufficient for the level of service she had provided and I would totally recommend her to whoever out there that needs an energetic, patient, professional, kind, well-organized MC or Celebrant. Again, we were very luck to have found her and THANK YOU!

Katrina was an amazing MC for our wedding. She was fun, lively and was able to engage with the crowd moving. She coordinated and ensured everything ran smoothly for our special night and not a single hiccup occurred! Some highlights of Katrina is that she is multilingual; speaking both chinese and english, ensuring all our guests were able to understand the nights events. And a must have inclusion is her singing performance! Singing in both chinese and english and sounding so great! A worthwhile addition to ours and any wedding. Thank you Katrina for making our night so special. A top notch MC - couldn't recommend anyone better!

We couldn’t be more thankful we found Katrina! We are so lucky that Katrina is so organised and reliable - she kept us on track the whole year, frequently checking in on us, reassuring us and holding us accountable. Katrina is genuine and we had a great experience sharing our story and vision with her. She responds thoughtfully and honestly to our ideas and suggestions which we sincerely appreciated resulting in a seamless ceremony and reception (which can be difficult if you know Asian aunties and uncles). Her wealth of experience was definitely highlighted in her time management, scheduled and structured catch ups as well as runsheet preparation in that she thought of everything - even to how everyone should be standing, right hand on top of left. Thank you so much Kat for celebrating with us! You’ve honestly made our day one a memorable one! Thank you for travelling interstate for us and braving the heat!! We appreciate & adore you!! Terry & Lisa
