  • Why Choose a Professional Wedding MC Over Family?

    A wedding day, as it signifies the culmination of dreams, emotions, and a lifetime of love, etches itself indelibly into the hearts of the bride and groom. This extraordinary day is replete with tears, laughter, and a multitude of unforgettable moments. The role of a Master of Ceremonies (MC) is to expertly weave these elements together, ensuring a celebration that flows seamlessly and remains eternally memorable. While it might be tempting to entrust this pivotal role to a beloved family member, this blog post ardently advocates for wedding couples to choose a professional MC. I will delve deeper into the emotional and practical reasons that firmly establish a professional MC as the heartbeat of an extraordinary wedding.

    1. Unparalleled Experience

    The wealth of experience possessed by a professional MC is truly remarkable. They have meticulously honed their craft by hosting numerous weddings, comprehending the ever-changing tides of emotions, and orchestrating each moment with finesse. Although opting for a family member may carry sentimental appeal, entrusting an amateur with your special day can potentially lead to hiccups and missteps that may inadvertently dampen the joyous atmosphere. A professional MC ensures that they expertly craft every moment, allowing both you and your guests to wholeheartedly savour the emotions.

    2. Emotional Neutrality

    Deep emotional investments in your wedding are held by family members, who become emotionally attached to every facet of the day. This profound connection can occasionally cloud their judgment or inadvertently steer the event in unexpected directions. Conversely, a professional MC offers an impartial perspective to the proceedings. They skillfully navigate tricky situations and unforeseen circumstances with grace, thereby preserving the emotional sanctity of your day.

    3. Stress-Free Celebrations

    Emotions run exceedingly high on a wedding day, with nerves, excitement, and a whirlwind of feelings all vigorously competing for attention. Entrusting a family member with the role of an MC can inadvertently introduce unnecessary stress for both you and them. A professional MC exudes a calming presence, ensuring that everything flows effortlessly. This allows you to wholeheartedly focus on enjoying the moment, free from concerns about logistics and coordination.

    4. Seamless Transitions

    A wedding is essentially a sequence of beautiful moments strung together, much like a delicate strand of pearls. A professional MC skillfully ensures that these moments transition seamlessly, weaving a harmonious narrative for your day. Their ability to proficiently manage timelines and maintain the event’s trajectory stands as a testament to their expertise and unwavering dedication.

    5. Personalisation and Customisation

    Although a family member may possess an intimate knowledge of your preferences, a professional MC excels at probing deeper. They invest ample time in understanding your personalities, preferences, and the unique tapestry of your love story. Armed with this insight, they expertly craft a wedding experience that genuinely mirrors your journey as a couple. The result is a ceremony infused with emotional resonance, reflecting your unique bond.

    6. Embodying the Essence of Love

    A professional MC wholeheartedly dedicates themselves to the art of celebration. They infuse your wedding with an infectious enthusiasm and warmth that permeate through every attendee. Their unique ability to forge emotional connections with your guests, making them feel like cherished participants rather than passive observers, stands as a testament to their unwavering dedication to your special day.


    Choosing a professional MC for your wedding is a heartfelt decision firmly rooted in the desire to create a day teeming with emotion and joy. It is a day that will be etched indelibly into the memory of every guest. While family members undoubtedly bring love and affection, professional MCs bring a wealth of expertise, experience, and the innate ability to transform your wedding day into an exceptional masterpiece. So, when it comes to selecting the heartbeat of your wedding, make the choice of a professional MC and allow them to artfully orchestrate the symphony of emotions that will render your day truly unforgettable.

  • Wedding Reception | 2 November 2019 | Kate & Luke | Fairmont Resort, Leura, Blue Mountains

    “Marriage is the highest state of friendship. If happy, it lessens our cares by dividing them, at the same time that it doubles our pleasures by mutual participation.” ~ Samuel Richardson

    Kate and Luke are a truly beautiful couple who like all my other couples, are also genuinely lovely and thoughtful people. They are caring, honest, gentle, hilarious and very loyal to their family and friends. But most of all, they are perfect together and with the inclusion of their beautiful respective children, it was so wonderful to witness their love and see them celebrating their marriage surrounded by close family and friends.

    Kate and Luke first met through Kate’s brother at Kate’s niece and Luke’s daughter netball game. There were no sparks or first impressions. It was only later through barbeques at Kate’s brother’s house did they begin chatting and getting to know each other better. Eventually, Luke gathered the courage to ask Kate out for a date and they had arranged to go on a picnic to Palm Beach. On the day, it was very hot and when Luke arrived to pick up Kate and her two children, he found a picnic laid out on the floor of Kate’s unit and they had a wonderful and memorable time out of the outside heat. Later that evening when the kids had gone to bed, they shared their very first kiss.

    Three to four weeks after the picnic, Kate and Luke went out on a date without the children to a restaurant in Wahroonga. By the end of 2016, they realised that they were in love and in September 2017 that love had grown to a point where they were considering marriage, moved in together and on 27 October 2018, whilst on a holiday to Currarong Beach, he took Kate to Point Perpendicular and while the kids were in the distance, Luke proposed, and while Kate knew it was coming, she certainly was not expecting it on that day.

    Fast forward to 2 November 2019, on a beautiful sunny day with a slight breeze at the Fairmont Resort in Leura in the picturesque Blue Mountains, overlooking the pond with Luke, who said he was feeling slightly nervous (I beg to differ and feel it was actually excitement that was being confused for nervousness 🙂 ) and Best Man, Matthew waiting patiently for Kate to arrive. At just a little after 3:00 pm, the processional music started to play and Anastasia, Madison and followed by Lucas, who was escorting his mum, who was absolutely stunning in her wedding gown, made their way around the pond and down the aisle.

    The smile on both their faces were HUGE – it was obvious that they were so looking forward to becoming husband and wife! What followed was a beautiful ceremony officiated by Karen Brown, Marriage Celebrant, a lovely reading from Kate’s friend Bree and they were finally pronounced husband and wife!! From that point on, they appeared to be wearing permanent smiles – they were just so very happy!!!! (Spoiler Alert!!! – those smiles were there ALL day and night.)

    A group photo prior to Kate, Luke and their wedding party exploring the Fairmont Resort grounds and having photographs taken by Jeff Davies – Photographer and video captured by Platinum Films by Andrew, while guests availed themselves to the wonderful facilities at the Resort.

    The reception room looked fantastic! With a black and gold theme, L O V E letters, beautiful florals by Piccolo Petalo, stunning wedding cake by Eaton Cakes & Catering, seating names by Rockmelon xo and an open photobooth  which was supplied by Jeff the photographer.

    Before long, it was time to welcome them to the reception, and with cheers and applause we certainly made them feel special. A short welcome and thank you to the guests by Luke, prior to wonderful speeches from Kate’s dad Robert and Luke’s dad, Kevin. Guests were then served a delicious entree. Beautiful words from Kate’s life-long friend Emma and some marriage advice from Best Man (and Kate’s brother), Matthew.

    A little bit of fun with the Newlywed Game, a scrumptious main meal, more fun with a scavenger hunt which had guests obtaining items from other guests for a “no expense spared” prize! This was followed by a surprise meaningful and humorous speech from Kate’s son Lucas. Lucas was a tough act to follow, but Luke soldiered on and thanked many people that had been instrumental in the relationship blossoming into a love story and today a marriage. There was nothing but endless love for Kate!

    Guests enjoyed dessert, before some more fun with a dancing competition with a twist, the cutting of the wedding cake, before their very first dance as husband and wife to a personalised version of Coldplay’s “Sky Full Of Stars”. Guests then joined in and it was time to party – there were certainly lots of smiles on the dance floor and guests enjoyed themselves immensely.

    All good things must come to an end and before we knew it, it was time to farewell our gorgeous couple, family and friends gathered in a circle of love and Kate and Luke made their way around it, thanking everybody for their love and support. A final dance where everyone was invited to join our newlyweds ended the night on a fun and happy note. Kate and Luke them made their way down a tunnel of love and the start of their forever love!!

    Kate and Luke, thank you so much for granting me the ultimate honour and investing your trust in me for your special day as your Blue Mountains Wedding MC and Blue Mountains Wedding DJ. It was nothing but a pleasure and a whole heap of fun as we planned your day and I hope your wedding day vision was realised. I feel so honoured to have been a part of your day. Kate and Luke, thank you for allowing me this privilege. I know that your love will continue to grow and that the next chapter of your life together will be the absolute best. May love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!
