Q&A with Glenn
WHAT EVENTS DO YOU ENJOY / SPECIALISE IN?
I specialise in weddings. I love doing corporate and charity MC work, but weddings are my passion.
WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
For me, free time is always spent with family. With an amazing wife and two kids, time with them is precious to me. Between the kids sports and hobbies, there is always something to do.
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT TO OTHER MCs?
From what I’m told, the biggest difference is that I know what I’m doing. I can take a crowd on a journey with me through the event by guiding them from start to finish. I’m a big fan of making other people look good when I perform as the MC, because the event is not about me, it’s about other people.
Another aspect of what I do that is different is that it’s never just “going through the motions” as the MC. For me it’s about tailoring every single aspect to create the best possible experience for the couple and their guests. It’s never just another wedding, each one is special.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT AS A MC?
For me there are two and they happen at pretty much every single wedding I’m involved with. The first is the moment the couple see their reception room. Often they will sneak a peek before their guests enter and the way their faces light up seeing the vision we’ve worked on with them for months come to fruition. When all the design elements come together, it’s magical. That really sets the mood for a great celebration.
My other favourite moment is at the end of the night. When the bride and groom are doing their big send off and come up to give me a hug to say thanks, that’s pretty special. My MC style is designed so that it’s usually only the bride and groom who will know the full extent of what I’ve helped them with and over the course of the planning process, we become good friends. Those hugs make it all worthwhile because you know you’ve helped make their wedding exactly what they dreamt.
WHAT IS NEXT FOR G&M EVENT GROUP?
We always have a few things in the works. Our leadership team are very innovative and we always strive to create the latest and greatest for our clients. We are always looking for something new to help take our next event to another level. Stay tuned 🙂

Glenn was absolutely incredible from start to finish. Everyone at the wedding was commenting how good he was. Hiring Glenn was the best money we have ever spent.#MCGlennMackayAndy & Vanessa @ Sirromet Wines
Glenn and his team made planning our wedding so much easier, and everything on the night ran perfectly. We were so happy with how everything on the night ran and would highly recommend Glenn and his team to anyone else planning a wedding.#MCGlennMackayKirsten & Aiden @The Landing at Dockside
There are no words to explain just how grateful we were to have had Glenn as our MC, our wedding exceeded our expectations over and over, we had our elderly guests who have attended countless weddings coming up to is saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to.#MCGlennMackayEmma & Joseph @ Riverlife – Kangaroo Point
The way that Glenn is the organiser with all the bridal part, guests and other suppliers is great. I never had to worry about anything. He is worth EVERY dollar!#MCGlennMackayCodi & Ayden @ Royal on the Park
Our guest commented on just how well our reception ran. We honestly can't thank you enough. A big thank you to Ben for the being an awesome DJ and keeping the dancefloor pumping. You guys are definitely an ace team!#MCGlennMackayKara & Nathan @Novotel Twin Waters
Glenn made a huge difference to our planning of the wedding and made everything on the night go much smoother than if we hadn't had him there. Definitely worth the money.#MCGlennMackayKirsten & Aiden @The Landing at Dockside
Working with G&M made our experience so fun. When wedding planning got us down and we had a meeting booked in with Glenn, it made us excited to be doing this again. We got more planning done overall on the days we’d been to G&M.#MCGlennMackayCodi & Ayden @ Royal on the Park
I would consider Glenn an essential part to any wedding. Don't bother spending money on little things that don't enhance your wedding just hire Glenn to blow everyone away.#MCGlennMackayAndy & Vanessa @ Sirromet Wines
G&M's planning and support leading up to the wedding is fantastic and they well and truly go beyond their roles as MC & DJ to help in anyway they can to make your big day so memorable. I could never thank you enough Glenn and Miranda for everything, I will definitely be highly recommending you to anyone we know getting married in the future !! Xxxxxx#MCGlennMackayEmma & Joseph @ Riverlife – Kangaroo Point
Glenn where on earth do we start. You are sensational. You went above and beyond at Nathan and my reception and always made sure we ate and was happy. You made our night so relaxing and stress free and everything flowed so well.#MCGlennMackayKara & Nathan @Novotel Twin Waters
Glenn was a magnificent help to us in making our reception run smoothly and we couldn’t be more thrilled we hired a professional as it just kept the whole evening completely relaxed. Thanks so much for all your hard work!#MCGlennMackayAlexandra & Craig @ The Brisbane Club
