About Me

Hi! I'm Frank, a passionate and dedicated Wedding Master of Ceremonies (MC) based in the heart of Scotland.

I’ve got a rich background and extensive experience in public speaking and event hosting (having been professionally trained by the voice of the X Factor), and I bring a unique blend of professionalism, warmth, and enthusiasm to every event I host.

I live in Bonnie Dundee, and I’m happy to travel throughout Scotland and can go further afield if required.

I'm deeply committed to making every wedding I host a memorable and joyous occasion.

Why I Created My Business

I created my wedding MC business out of a genuine love for celebrations and a desire to help couples create unforgettable memories on their special day.

As an aspiring Celebrant, I understand the importance of smooth, engaging, and heartfelt ceremonies. Soon, I will be able to provide this service too.

My goal is simply to ensure that every couple feels supported, heard, and celebrated in the most beautiful way possible.

The Services I Provide

As a Wedding MC, I offer a range of services designed to make your wedding day flow seamlessly:

  • Toastmaster: Announcing speeches, toasts, and key moments with clarity and charisma.
  • Coordination with Vendors: Ensuring smooth communication and coordination with other wedding vendors.
  • Customised Script: Crafting a personalised script that reflects your love story and preferences.

Why I'm the Perfect MC for Your Wedding

I understand that choosing the right MC is crucial for a seamless and enjoyable wedding experience.

Here's why I'm the perfect choice:

  • Experience and Professionalism: With years of experience in public speaking and event hosting, I bring a high level of professionalism and expertise to every event.
  • Personalised Approach: I take the time to get to know you and your story, ensuring that my script and style perfectly match your vision.
  • Calm Under Pressure: Weddings can be unpredictable, but my calm and composed demeanour ensures that any hiccups are handled smoothly. I actually learned how to remain calm and professional in high pressure and ever-changing situations, during my time in the RAF Police.
  • Engaging Presence: I know how to engage an audience and keep the energy positive and upbeat throughout the event.

Your Love Story, Perfectly Told

What sets me apart from other wedding MCs is my commitment to storytelling.

I believe every couple has a unique story, and it's my mission to tell it beautifully and authentically.

With a blend of professionalism, warmth, and a touch of humour, I ensure your wedding day is not just another event but a celebration of your unique journey together.

My Work Process

  6. Post-Event Follow-Up: After the wedding, I check in with you to ensure everything met your expectations and gather feedback for continuous improvement.

I'm excited to be a part of your special day and help make it the joyous celebration you've always dreamed of. Let's create unforgettable memories together!
