Getting Married?

CONGRATULATIONS!

 

You are about to embark on one of the most exciting, thrilling, and heart-pounding moments of your life!

There are so many things to think about and decide:

  • Photographer...

  • Music/DJ...

  • Venue...

  • Flowers...

  • THE DRESS!

But there's often ONE thing many couples don't give as much thought to and is perhaps one of the MOST important: who is going to be your wedding MC?

Stress Less, Celebrate More! 

While there are many options for your wedding MC, including the DJ, or your Uncle Steve, or perhaps that one work friend who is sorta funny and probably will say yes...

All of these people have ONE major problem in common:

They are NOT in a position on the night to take
COMPLETE CONTROL of its success!

With a professional Master of Ceremonies running the show, you can be confident that you will "Stress Less, Celebrate More." In fact, I guarantee it! Why?

  • An MC will unburden your worries of having a poorly-received, stressful wedding reception by handling every detail and making it magical (as it should be!)

  • You will know the several 1000s of dollars you spent were worth EVERY cent because it was so fun and seamless for you and your guests

  • YOUR wedding will be the one others compare to and always remember as having been the BEST they attended for a long time to come!

So, Why Should You Pick Nathan?

Weddings are what I like to call "Organised Chaos." Just like all large-scale events I have managed, they can be stressful and overwhelming. 

 

BUT... when done RIGHT (I've made it my life's work to get it right!) they can be turned into something incredible and truly unforgettable!

  1. 10+ years in entertainment, 1000s of happy guests, COUNTLESS lasting memories

  2. Event management excellence is my passion - I've dedicated many proud years as a successful Entertainment Host with Princess Cruises and live audiences around Sydney, Australia

  3. Born to Entertain - I am a classically-trained pianist and multi-awarded Public Speaker with a flare and love for high-impact entertainment experiences

 

And yes, I'll be honest, I am a sucker for good ol' wholesome romance and parties and weddings are the BEST combination of the two!

The Success Is In The Details!

I'm going to let you in on a little secret... I am NOT your average wedding MC!

 

There are a LOT of what I like to call "Professional Announcers of Information" who can hold a microphone but fail to truly capture an audience or deliver an impactful guest experience that lasts beyond the night.

What makes me DIFFERENT from the rest?

  • A genuine and humourous approach to hosting that makes YOU the stars of the night

  • I'll jump in, dance, sing, and play along with you and your guests

  • A unique list of live entertainment games and activities, such as Structured Dancing, Musical Men, The Shoe Game, Name That Tune, rivia, and many others that will ensure NO dull moments

  • A tailor-made experience from start to finish, with unlimited access to me and my expertise every step of the way. Need help making a decision? Writing a speech? A shoulder to cry on? I've got you no matter what!

My NUMBER ONE goal is to make sure your wedding night is better than you possibly could have imagined and your guests will rave about it for years to come!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the job of a Wedding MC?


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
  • Liasing 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!).




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


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.




Do you travel outside of Sydney?


I sure do! I've literally travelled the world to entertain audiences, so I am more than happy to trek to you for your big day. Travel costs will apply outside of the Sydney surrounds and will be quoted to you after enquiry.




How long do I get your services for?


When making an enquiry, ensure to let me know how many hours you require me for. While it is unconventional for an MC to be hired for half of a reception/event, I am available for as many hours you request. That being said, I will ALWAYS arrive 45 minutes prior to your reception to familiarise myself with the venue, the setting, introduce myself to your vendors and venue manager and, most importantly, let you know I have arrived so we can kick the party off without a hitch!




Do you require a holding deposit? Contract?


Yes and yes. I require a $200 deposit within two weeks of agreeing to a date. I also require an electronic Service Agreement signed and returned within 30 days of issuance. Both of these must be done otherwise I cannot guarantee your requested date. Once signed and the deposit is paid, the date is all yours and I get to work! YAY!




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


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 we meet you before we make our decision?


Yes! In fact, I personally 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!




Can you speak any other languages?


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!


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. For a look at my portfolio and list of achievements from my time at sea (including some videos of me performing live on stage), feel free to check out my Linkedin page at https://www.linkedin.com/in/nathan-cassar-princesscruises/
