Welcome ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, brides and grooms, CEOs and anyone else interested in all things events, parties and weddings!
I’m Keira . . . or KJ for short. Scott has been avoiding this for a while and so I am officially taking charge. From ceremony writer to Blogger. So given this is now my baby here's the gist. :)
Scott and I have been throwing around ideas for this blog and what we wanted it to be for a while now, and this is what we’ve come up with. This blog is about letting you see that we are real, and also about giving shout outs to the couples whose weddings Scott has officiated and/or MC’d, as well as charities and corporate events that he's hosted. I'm also getting things sorted to be an event and wedding planner in the new year, so expect to hear more news about that as it happens :). I'll be doing posts about wedding and event advice, from how to choose vendors, what a run sheet should include, what sort of music you need for the ceremony and reception, even down to the easiest way to go to the toilet in a wedding dress. That’s right, there is a way!
I will also do vendor shout outs for people we’ve worked with and who we’ve seen go above and beyond for weddings and other events, including florists, photographers, videographers, and decorators, to name a few.
Because Scott and I live weddings, there will inevitably be posts about us as well (and posts from Scott – I’ll make sure of it😉). Just last weekend we took Scott’s daughters to see The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (it was amazing – we highly recommend it!), and we sat through the credits to the end because there was a song that we thought would be absolutely perfect for a bridal waltz, and we needed to find out what it was. Obviously, we could have googled it, but the song held us there. It’s “Fall on Me”, by Andrea Bocelli. Go check it out.
I will be endeavouring to post once a week, and I'd love to hear from you, with comments or suggestions for posts, as well as any questions you might have relating to all things weddings, charities, corporate events and parties in general. Just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll respond within 24 hours.
That's all for now, remember to check back regularly.
About the team at Master of Ceremonies Sydney
I’m Scott Phillips, a registered Marriage Celebrant, professional Master of Ceremonies (MC) and dad to two gorgeous girls.
I’m really a dog person, but a 12-year-old cat named Morgan has somehow managed to turn me into one of her minions.
We believe that every event, whether it is a wedding ceremony, wedding reception, a corporate function (even a Christmas party), a charity event, an expo or trade show, will be a Moment of Truth. A moment that will form memories, bonds and goodwill that will carry a lasting impression.
As a Celebrant I believe in creating a magical, memorable ceremony that will be remembered for years to come, and to do that I ensure each ceremony is unique and tailored to the bride and groom, who they are individually and as a couple.
I'm Keira Brown and I’m a writer, cat lover, and new owner of a dog named Bear, who lives up to his name in size and looks, but he’s really cuddly.
I used to be completely uninterested in marriage, weddings, relationships, anything to do with love really. Not because I'd had my heart broken, but because to me it just didn’t seem that important. Then I met Scott, and my life, my entire world changed. Everything was about weddings, because that's what he does. And gradually, as I fell deeper in love with Scott and started helping him with Master of Ceremonies Sydney, I finally got it. It's not about the marriage, or the reception, decorations or food, or even the ceremony - it's about two people declaring their love for each other before the entire world. An irrevocable promise to always be there for each other.
I quit my day job, and now help Scott run Master of Ceremonies Sydney full time. I get to merge my love of writing stories with my passion for writing an unforgettable ceremony. It’s been a hell of a ride. I can't wait to see what happens next!
