It is often said that an MC can either make or break an event; be it a wedding, gala dinner, fundraiser, awards night, or even a corporate function…so choosing the right MC is one of the most important decisions you will make.
A professional Master of Ceremonies creates the atmosphere. They draw the attention of the audience and it is their job to hold them until the very end. They are the conduit and the anchor…everything starts and ends with them, no matter the size of the event.
John believes that the 10 most important attributes of an outstanding MC are:
Many know John to be all these and more, so next time you need someone to host your event or special day, remember, the Master of Ceremonies is the first and last person your guests will see, hear…and yes, probably remember.
family is everything
It's easy to say, "we love our families," but family is about more than these simple words to John. It is a special type of love that comes with its unique feelings, behaviours, challenges and ultimately…rewards.
That's why family is everything to John. It's what keeps him grounded and focused; doing the best for them is all that matters. His boys Xavier & Jonah keep him youthful and energetic, and his wife Rania is without doubt his strength. She is a successful Hair Stylist and knows how to balance work and family life.
And John's extended family is just as important. Whether he's grown up with them, or those within the events industry, he is grateful for moulding him into the person he is today and supporting every decision he has made to explore and chase his passions.
John believes 'Family' is what makes him the person he is today.

John, where do I begin? Ali and I would like to thank you so much for everything. Our wedding was perfect, we had the best day and night and we’re so grateful for all the effort you put into our special day. We won’t forget the late night doing our napkins and how you went over and beyond for us! We couldn’t have asked for a better Planner/ Stylist/ Coordinator/ MC. Groomzilla also says thanks for putting up with him and making our special day spectacular.
John Alten where do I start? From the beginning to end you didn’t leave our sides and when I thought something was going to ruin the day you managed to fix it all in a heartbeat.
