What is the job of a Wedding MC?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Wow this is a big question, how much time do you have? But seriously, a wedding MC has a massive part to play on the night. They are needed for:

  • Live announcements throughout the night, particularly at important moments such as the cutting of the cake, the bridal entrance, or when it's time for speeches/toasting
  • Keeping a close eye on the time and running sheet, making sure everything is going as close to schedule as possible
  • Liaising with all vendors and the venue staff all night, especially when anything is about to begin that they wouldn't want to miss, such as a photo opportunity or food and beverage service
  • Setting the tone of the evening, including the way announcements are made, interacting with guests and the bridal table, and generally keeping things moving along smoothly

The list goes on! It's definitely a job that a lot of people underestimate, and I am not joking the amount of people I've spoken to after they've went to a wedding and mentioned that the MC was bad or didn't quite hit the mark. A lot of the time it was a family member or friend, or it was an inexperienced DJ who was a lot better at spinning tracks than making engaging announcements or spending time being a true host.

It's a labour of love and as your dedicated Wedding MC I aim to NEVER have anyone come away from your wedding feeling like that (rather, the complete opposite!).

Do you offer more than simply announcements and event management as part of your package?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

YES! I offer so much more! My unique 10+ year background in the Cruise and Recreation industries have given me a treasure trove of extras that I can offer you and your guests that I am certain most MC's do not. These include:

  • Games and activities, like Musical Men and Name That Tune
  • Structured dancing to take the party up a notch and get everybody moving
  • Running order management
  • Speech writing advice

If you have an idea, just ask! I've probably done it before or love a challenge of anything exciting and new. Remember, in the end it's all about YOU!

Our venue/DJ/family already offered to do it. Why should we pay more for a separate MC?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

You can certainly choose to go with a family/friend member or with the DJ/venue's offer, like every decision for your wedding you are completely at liberty to do so!

The biggest advantage you have paying for a professional MC for one of the biggest days of your life is that we, as event managers, are the MOST able and experienced to pull all the crazy elements of the reception together on the day. It's what we do best!

Just like it's no question that you hire a photographer as they are highly skilled in getting the right shot and edit of your once-in-a-lifetime photos, and MC is no different. We are an ESSENTIAL part of managing the chaos of a wedding and we thrive in it for you and your guests' benefit and entertainment.

Is an appointment necessary?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Yes, I prefer to meet with prospective clients before finalising dates and service agreements. That way we can determine if we are a good fit and give you a good idea of my personality and style. I want you to feel totally comfortable and happy with me for your big day!

What type of payments do you accept?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Currently, I accept Cash, Cheque, Direct Deposit (Preferred) and major Credit Cards.

All credit card transactions will incur a 1.45% surcharge.

What happens if we need to cancel/postpone our wedding?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Never fear! I totally understand the unexpected happens and I want you to feel as comfortable as you can knowing I got you covered!

All my terms are listed in my Service Agreement, however, as a rule of thumb, the earlier you let me know the easier it will be for me to make a decision that is fair for the both of us :)

Can you speak any other languages?

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Is music a language? Although I'd argue it 100% is a language, my only spoken language is English (although I am trying to learn Italian, French, and Spanish on my travels!).

Did you really work for as a Live Entertainment Host for Princess Cruises? Prove it!

Nathan Cassar: Master of Ceremonies

Yes, I really did! Some of my best years in entertainment have been spent at sea, and I'm proud to bring all I learned from abroad to celebrate with you and your guests in style.
