• Master of Ceremonies
This has been a personal highlight for me for many, many years. I have had the fortune to ‘MC’ countless weddings, functions and events; from small and personal dinners to large scale events. Not unlike the Jedi definition in relation to Marriage Celebrants; this role requires an uncanny ability to predict what’s about to happen at any stage; and be armed with the ability of wisdom, humour and wit AND the timing to which deliver it.
A professional MC will know who is who in the zoo, they will be able to make any feel super important with just a touch of another shoulder; at exactly the right time. They will have studied the family tree like a form guide and have the ability to sweep Nana off her feet with boyishly good charm and manners.
There are no ‘ums’, no hiccups and unexplained tangents. The professional MC takes over from the Marriage Celebrant and ensures a seamlessly smooth and coordinated event. They are the gatekeepers of fun; that turn gatherings into events!

Naming ceremonies have become more and more popular over the years. Increasingly they’re replacing traditional baptisms as a modern way of welcoming new life and life stages. From the birth of a child to marking transitions into adolescence and adulthood, naming ceremonies celebrate life and individuality.
Naming ceremonies are whatever you want them to be. They may be intimate or group affairs and use stories, poetry, songs or dance. It’s entirely up to you.
Naming rituals can also bless and commemorate landmark occasions, such to welcome new non-human family members such as a dogs and cats. Naming rituals are whatever you make them so get creative.
Sunshine Coast only $450.00
