Bride and Groom, Take it Easy, I’m Tonight’s Wedding Emcee
The trouble with organising a wedding is that the two most important people are rather busy: they’re getting married that day and they’ve got a thousand things to do beforehand and duties to perform on the day itself. Things like welcoming guests, catching up with old friends and relatives and enjoying their new life as a spouse. Yet the majority of couples still do most of it themselves, from picking a venue to sourcing for the best wedding music bands. So what they really need is a little help on the night. Just someone to make a few announcements and make sure the atmosphere doesn’t drop, because everyone wants to have a good time, but sometimes they need a little geeing up. Read More
The guy in the headline above thinks he’s a poet. And he’s loud. Sounds like he’s in charge. And in a way these people are. Wedding Emcee. It’s a grand title: Master of Ceremonies. It comes from a different age, when the boom boom boom came from a big bass drum on somebody’s chest, not from a 1000-watt PA system. It was a time when everything was a lot more formal and there were protocols to follow. MCs weren’t performers in their own right. They linked the progressing parts of a ceremony, introduced people who were going to do something important and generally made sure the event ran smoothly. And that’s pretty much what they do today.
When Did DJs take on the role as Wedding Emcees?
There has been an elevation, as characters have built upon the growing stature of the DJ, who was becoming known as a musician for hire. They were the music person and with that 1000 watts at their disposal, they had the loudest voice. Might as well give them a list of what is going to happen when, and let them convey that to the excited masses on the dancefloor. They’ve got a better chance of reaching the denizens of the bar and the smokers outside. You could try getting the Best Man to do it, running around with a loud hailer clamped to his face, but why? You’ve already got a wedding DJ providing the music, so give them the brief and let them do their thing. Give them a couple more letters after their name: Ladies and gentlemen, this is me, Wedding DJ.

How to Hire an MC: You bring the Ceremonies and we’ll Bring the Master
There is nothing like a good MC for getting the party going. It takes a certain sort of personality to do it, but if you’re looking for wedding MC hire, we have got the person you need. As providers of entertainers for events and parties, we personally vet everyone who wants us to find bookings for them, so we know what they’re all about.
Through us you can hire an MC you may otherwise never have come across, because the best entertainers are not necessarily good at promoting themselves. That is our department.
When I Hire an MC How Do I Know They’re the Right One?
Again, that’s our department because we know our roster and if you give us all the information we need about the nature of your event: where, when, how many people and what atmosphere you’re aiming for, we will find you an MC as close to ideal as we can.
What Exactly Does an MC do?
When you hire an MC you are to a large extent setting the tone of your event. They will keep the party moving, organising where organisation is called for. If you’ve got the music on for a while but then you want to have some announcements, speeches or whatever, the MC will make sure you have a bit of quiet so you can do what’s necessary. If the atmosphere dips a little, they will get it going again. The best ones are efficient, amusing and likeable, and they take the onus off the organiser, so you can enjoy the party too, rather than being on duty the whole time.
