Wellington Wedding MC

Master of Ceremonies

Hogan Gill

If you want an awesome reception, you'll need an awesome MC. 


An awesome MC is able to hold a crowd and create those party vibes whilst being just the right amount of bossy to get bums in seats and voices hushed. My couples often don't want to lump the responsibility on a mate/loved one (or they don’t have any responsible mates/loved ones)

With me as your MC I’ll be like a Wedding-Day Coordinator, keeping the festivities running smoothly, liaising between each of the different vendors and relieving as much stress as possible from you.

Depending on how you’d like your wedding to be run will depend on how involved I am and how many jobs I take on. Based off the weddings I’ve MC’ed in the past, I’d do the following after conclusion of your ceremony;

-Assist the photographer by gathering people/groups

-Facilitate the transportation of guests from the ceremony to the reception

-Help guests find seats

-Open the reception, run through housekeeping and introduce the newlyweds (plus the Bridal party if applicable) into the room with some flair!

-Acknowledge any special guests

-Advise order of proceedings (letting guests know what's coming next)

-Introduce each of the bridal party members (and if you want introduce your family or give a small one-liner description of each of the tables)

-Introduce each speaker (as discussed, probably best to stagger them)
-Explain the serving process for dinner (whether it’s by order, buffet or other) and assist those in need

-Facilitate transitions for cutting the cake/ / games / first dance / garter & bouquet toss. 

-Announce the departure of the bride and groom


Throughout all of this I’ll be collaborating with all other vendors on timing etc. I’ll make sure the DJ knows any/all necessary cues, that the kitchen is kept informed on timing and let them know ASAP of any potential delays,


Ultimately I will just be helping you two to relax and enjoy your celebration. 


I’ve worked in plenty of jobs over the years that require quick thinking and problem solving, experience that has helped me heaps as an MC.
