Lucy Suze Celebrant

A wordsmith and a lover of your stories; I am a Sydney based celebrant and MC creating happy vibes and cherished memories across Australia.

What is the role of an MC aka Master [or Mistress] of Ceremonies?

It is a great idea to ask the celebrant to be the MC, Master of Ceremonies or Mistress of Ceremonies. 

A guest as an MC might get a bit too drunk and the night may not run on time. The celebrant is already known to your guests, the crowd feels comfortable knowing they are in good hands. 

If you do ask a guest or family member, make sure they are not a piss pot! (you know who I’m talking about) The role can also be shared amongst people or just leave it up to your celebrant, as she (me) is a mistress on the mic and does this sort of thing all the time and you and your guests can relax and enjoy the night!

What does the role of MC usually include?

Your MC will ask you for a list of the speeches and the speakers and usually ask you something about each person so that they can introduce them with some pizzazz.

MC will get to know all the vendors on the night and liaise with the venue and events person. They should also introduce themselves to all the speakers.

The Master of Ceremonies (or MC as it is often abbreviated to) will now be known as the MISTRESS OF CEREMONIES OR MISTRESS ON THE MIC.

The Mistress of Ceremonies

The Mistress of Ceremonies will start the speeches with the right tone, ensure each person walks into a ‘warm’ space, where your guests are relaxed and ready to listen. They will also ensure the smooth flow from one speaker to another. 

The Role...

The MC will tie all things together, liaise with all vendors. Role can include the following:
