Considering hiring a wedding MC?
Looking for an experienced wedding MC for your special day?
Or perhaps you’re considering your options for a Master of Ceremonies for your next corporate event?
I’m a Sydney-based professional, who’ll bring a fresh female vibe to your event. This energy is underpinned by years of experience in events management.
I’m fourth-generation Australian on my Dad’s side. And my mother is Chinese from Malaysia. Sadly, I don’t speak Chinese. But I am fluent in Yum Cha and can also get by in Spanish. I also know my manners in about a dozen different languages.
I’m a marketing consultant by day. And an MC on the weekends. I’m also a water baby. Sporadic writer. Music lover. Card collector. And an epic swearer. (Obviously not at weddings).
I live on the edge of Paddington / Darlinghurst with my ever-hungry Pugalier who answers to Guapa or #thelittlef*cker.
My experience as a wedding MC
I’ve been working as a professional voice since the 90s (which makes me sound positively ancient! I swear, I’m not.)
I started doing voice-overs in store for Myer & David Jones. And was later asked to do radio commercials, on-hold and welcome recordings for the likes of Sydney Opera House and Royal Randwick Races.
I MCed my first wedding for a friend in 2007. I’ve been asked to do many more since then.
A few years ago my friend Andrea (whose wedding I also emceed) became a marriage celebrant. She suggested I establish myself a professional MC for hire. So here I am. I simply love the work.
My experience as a professional MC
I’ve been really fortunate to work for and in some of Sydney’s best venues such as Sydney Opera House, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Pier One, Doltone House, Oatlands House, Curzon Hall. I’ve held senior management roles in:
- the arts
- hospitality and
- venue hire.
I’ve been responsible for managing events of all sizes. From star-studded media events to lavish product launches. From black-tie dinners through to more intimate affairs.
I am experienced in liaising with wedding planners, venue managers, caterers, entertainment and photographers.
Experience I’m really happy to pass onto you as my client.
My point of difference
Let’s face it. Your choices are pretty limited. There’s blokes, dudes and bros. Ex-regional radio DJs. Aspiring actors. And cruise ship comedians. Why this is such a dude-dominated industry, I’ll never know. Don’t get me wrong! I love men. Men are awesome. And there are some amazing men MCing out there. Guys who have been doing this since I was in nappies. But that’s kinda my point.
Where are all the fresh-faced, fabulous females?! I see a lot more diversity these days in your choice of celebrants, but this hasn’t quite translated yet to the MC sector.
Women make totally boss MCs
- We’re great at listening.
- We’re natural organisers.
- We were born to multi-task.
- And we have great attention to detail — especially when it comes to people.
I’m all these things but I really think my personal point of difference is that I’m warm, professional and very down-to earth. Plus, I’m good at thinking on my feet and going with the flow.
The MC is the first person your guests hear from at your wedding reception — and so they really set the tone for the rest of the night. Your MC might physically be front and centre, but the spotlight should shine on you. After all, this is your night. It’s all about you.
Of course, if you’re looking for a comedian to MC a corporate event, that’s a different thing. And if that’s the case, I’m probably not your girl. I think I’m pretty funny. But a professional comic, I am not.
When you book me as your event or wedding MC
When you book me as your event or wedding MC, you’ll get someone:
- you can relate to
- who really understands the ins and outs of the wedding / events business.
- who’ll take care of the details
- who’ll ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible, and
- who will work hard to make you and your guests feel really special.
Meaning less stress for you and more fun for everyone, all round. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s all about?
