Just returned from our honeymoon and just wanted to say THANK YOU for coordinating our reception last week at the QVB.
We realised that we didn't manage to thank you on the evening itself properly so just wanted to express it on our return. We really had a great celebration and having you look after the event time schedule really made it possible to relax and enjoy. You make hosting look effortless. We love your sense of humour and you added so many little touches throughout the night. Everything was just perfect.
We hope you had a great evening as well, would always recommend your service so thank you for all the effort you put in.

We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much!
We couldn't have asked for anything more in an MC on our special day, truly the best in the business. The night was just perfect and ran so smoothly thanks to you. You were so accommodating in any little changes we wanted to make on the run and everything was exactly as we could have hoped for. You truly are THE Master of Ceremonies.
Thank you so much once again!

KATE & JOHNNY ~ Deckhouse, Woolwich Dock NSW
We Just wanted to say a big thank to you for helping us make our special day so amazing and smooth!
There was incredible feedback from all of our family and friends :) with such a busy schede it wouldn't have been possible for the night to turn out so beautifully as it did without your efforts.
Thanks for making things run on time despite the fact than in our Indian culture it is quite the normal to run so late! You were amazing. Thank you so much.
BADHAN & TANMOY ~ Le Montage NSW
Thank you so much for your amazing service to us on our wedding day. There were so many examples of your thoughtfulness and this was reinforced when we recently viewed our wedding video. You are professional, warm, charismatic and an expert MC.
Having you there meant we could let go of all of the details and enjoy every moment of our magical night.
We hope you are well and enjoying life as much as we are!
All our best,
KATIE & ROB ~ Dunbar House NSW
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Saturday Night was everything we had ever imagined and more. Thank you for making sure our Wedding ran smoothly. You really are the best in the business and knowing that you were on top of everything for us made us feel so relaxed and comfortable on the night.
Your spontaneous touch of writing a speech for our children to read on the night brought tears to our eyes. It will be remembered forever.
Sam & I look forward to seeing you again soon. Sam & I will come to your restaurant one night soon for a bite and he said to have the Scotch ready J
Thank you again for being the most amazing MC ever….
LAUREN & SAM OHANIAN

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you. I can't express how comforting it was to know that our wedding was in such capable hands. It went so smoothly and you had such control of the room! I'm sure you have a thousand of these, but if you ever need a recommendation, I would be very happy to give one!
I have also attached a photo of you from the night.
Thank you again!!
PEARL & ADEL HODIWALA~ Intercontinental Hotel Double Bay NSW
Our night was an amazing success, and much of this we owe to you.
Your professionalism, enthusiasm and experience have made our night smooth and enjoyable for all. You knew what was happening, yet flexible, and you handled the crowd with genius (particularly my Aunty Pat!). You made it look easy.
Our guests had remarked how "bloody brilliant" you really are and we have recommended your name to others as well, as I am sure my family have also.
Eve and I cannot express our thanks in adequate words for your incredible help and services - I am so glad we got you for our night and extremely grateful that your made our night so special. We hope you continue to follow your passion in this role so that you can spread the joy and happiness to other couples that same way you did for us.
I have added some photos for the night for you as well! Our little way of saying thanks.
With sincerest thanks, regards and gratitude,"

CHRISTINE & HARRY ~ Dockside NSW
"Alex & I would like to thank you ever so much for everything! You were professional, proactive and made the night flow beautifully. With so much going on it would not have been a success without you holding it all together. My family were very impressed with your pronunciation of all of the Macedonian names.
Thank you SO much!"
JULIA & ALEX ~ The Ivy Ballroom NSW
Tony and I just wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks for everything you did to help make our wedding day special!!
As we couldn't "see" the product you were selling, it was hard to gauge how well the night would go, but we were absolutely blown away with your professionalism on the night.
Your manner of presentation was spectacular and really did keep the night going. You made the night all about us and we are so grateful for your service!! Everyone had a great night and complimented us on all the choices for suppliers that we had made.
It truly was the perfect day for us and we cannot thank you enough for being our MC at our reception!! You were a part of our special day and we will never forget that!
With our love and thanks,"
RENAE-LOUISE & TONY ~ Orso Bayside Events NSW
I just wanted to say a big Thank you for your help on Saturday night. You were not only professional but extremely caring. You went above and beyond your role to make us and our guests feel at ease. We honestly can not recommend you enough or thank you enough."
LAURA & KYLE ~ L’aqua Cockle Bay NSW
Thank you so much for being our MC. The wedding ran smoothly and it was very
stress free. You are truly are a professional at what you do. I wish you the
very best and keep doing what you are really brilliant at.
TREVOR & SHELLY PUCKERING ~ Sergeants Mess NSW
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your work at our wedding.
Your role as Master of Ceremonies enabled us to have a carefree and fun evening. An evening which will remain with us for the rest of our lives.
On the night itself, you were very approachable and flexible with the arrangements yet you were able to do this whilst still hitting all of the key times. In addition, your ability to calm down or hype up the guests was fantastic. I doubt we would have had as much fun entering into the dubke without your ability to rouse the crowd. Your timing throughout the evening was perfect, your presentation impeccable, and you showed great empathy during the emotional speeches. We really could not have chosen a better host for our event.
Furthermore, your service leading up to the big night was second to none. You were able to put both of our minds at ease when we met with you prior to our wedding to discuss and work through the details of the night.
All in all, we had a fantastic wedding reception and we owe a lot of that to you.
NIGEL & RENEE CARSON ~ Doltone House Hyde Park NSW
I would like to say a big thank you from both myself and Sonjay. You were fantastic at our wedding reception, very professional and organised. I had many compliments coming your way and would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone.
Thanks again :)"
SARISHA & SONJAY SHARMA ~ Dockside Cockle Bay NSW
Now that the dust has settled, I can take the opportunity to thank you for such a professional job last Saturday night at Paul & Nicole’s wedding. The whole night is just a blur at the moment. But our selection in your services, were justified. We could not have found a better MC if we tried. I did mean to catch up with you on the night, but as you saw it was a wild night, and before I knew it, it was all over.
On behalf of my wife Lily and I, thank you very much for making the night such a pleasant experience".
MARIO & LILY MEDULLA ~ The Tea Room QVB NSW
Matt and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. Everything ran so perfectly and we did not have to worry about a thing!
My family had such lovely things to say about you and had a great time with you and Paul (the photographer) at their table. Mum was telling me today that you both are such interesting people and she really enjoyed getting to know you both.
Thank you SO much for the tip about giving my bouquet to Mum, she was really touched! She was very emotional today as she showed me how it was taking pride of place at the dining table!
My Dad was chuffed when you told him that he nailed his speech. He thought he sounded like a wuss when his voice was breaking but you boosted his confidence with your kind words. (I loved that he was emotional by the way, made it all the more heartfelt.)
What I am trying to say is that it wasn't just what you said on the microphone, it was everything that you did that helped make the night the best of our lives. You are just a natural and choosing you was one of the best decisions we have made.
Wishing you and your wife all the best of luck with the birth of your baby!!"
LAUREN & MATTHEW DOLBEL
“As the owner of Angelic Events, one of Sydney’s leading wedding & events companies for the past 9 years, I have been lucky enough to have worked with Robert Galati for many of my events. I chose Robert to also the MC my own wedding at The Rocks in 2009.
Rob made my dream wedding a reality. His unrivalled professionalism and attention to detail made the night run successfully and smoothly. He really takes the time to understand the way an event should run, rather than being pushy he offers some incredible suggestions that he believes will suit every wedding and event. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough. He is an incredible wedding MC and an industry leader.”
JESSICA AGUILERA (CREATIVE DIRECTOR) ~ Angelic Events & Design Pty Ltd
"Robert was instrumental in making our wedding "the night of our life" and I could not begin to put in words the true value of his services as MC.
Our wedding was held in the Members Pavilion of The Sydney Cricket Ground and was the first wedding ever catered for at the venue. They were not set up for weddings and the organizational skills Rob brought to the table prior and on the night were invaluable!
He ensured the event went down without a hitch even though the venue staff made a number of errors ... they went unnoticed.
His public speaking skills are outstanding and he easily captured the attention and imagination of our guests. He even wrote a poem about me and my wife that he read out on the night.
A testament to Rob is that every one of my guests that have been married since have rung me to get Rob's number wanting to use his services!"
BEN & MELISSA HORWOOD ~ Sydney Cricket Ground (Members Dining Room) NSW
We would like to say a huge thank you for being such a fantastic MC on our wedding day!
The whole evening ran so smoothly because of everything you did behind the scenes and you really knew how to make the night special for us both!
Ruben’s mum absolutely loved you too!!!!
Thanks again for all your efforts. Our Hunter Valley dream wedding came true and you just made everything so easy for us! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
LIZ & RUBEN QUEIXALOS ~ Peppers (The Barrel Room) Hunter Valley NSW
Well we are finally back to work and our wedding seems so long ago. But WOW what a wedding! We had an amazing day and night. We would like to thank you for a wonderful job you really did live up to everything I have read about you. I was so glad to have you in control of the reception you knew exactly what was going on at all times, you keep the night flowing from the moment the bridal party arrived (just in time) to the end of the night with our fun farewell.
I truly appreciate you thinking ahead and re-organizing the run sheet as the night proceeded, I was impressed how you approached me with any issue but with a plan ready.
You made the evening relaxed and fun.
Your MC-ing was wonderful, happy, upbeat, funny, you defiantly know how to interact with the room I will be recommending you to all my friends and family for any event they may be having.
It was lovely to meet you and to have you as part of our Wedding day. So THANK YOU so much, I wish you all the best in the future keep up the excellent work”
KATIE & MARCO CAFARELLI ~ QVB Tea Room Sydney NSW
I would like to say big thank you from Renee and I for making the effort in following through with the wonderful bridal party introduction we asked for! You sounded better than the LA Lakers NBA announcer! Thank you for making everything run so smoothly throughout the night and for creating a great vibe throughout the night. I will be recommending you for future events. You truly are a master of your game."
ESTEBAN & RENEE OSORIO ~ Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf NSW
Thank you for all of your efforts leading up to our wedding day. You helped make our special day a very memorable one. We are very grateful to have secured your services early on, as all of your recommendations from the running order to Darren at Taylor made Photography proved to be invaluable.
We still have guests commenting on what a wonderful night they had, and they have all mentioned how great the MC was. We will not hesitate to recommend your services.
Thanks a million.”
MARC & MELISSA GIBSON ~ Le Montage Bayside Event Centre NSW
Just a quick note of thanks for the wonderful job you did as MC at our wedding. There was so much to organize and you really made it all look quite seamless on the night. From our Sea plane arrival to the boat departure, I cannot put into words how perfect our day all came together. We will never forget our wedding day and for the way in which you embraced all of our requests and even our family.
You’re the best MC anyone couple could wish for! Thank you!"
BELINDA & IAN KINGHAM ~ Catalina Rose Bay NSW
"Our destination dream wedding came to reality in August 2011 at The Shangri La’s Coral coast resort in Fiji. After all the expense and organization required in having an overseas wedding we were not prepared to risk having anyone but a professional MC our big day. We wanted everything to be just perfect so we hired Robert Galati and it turned out to be a master stroke.
We had some difficulties in communicating with the Shangri La and even though the resort is an “International” resort it is probably not up to the wedding standards we are used to here in Australia. Robert created a run sheet and helped us structure our wedding from day one. He emailed our wedding coordinator in Fiji and also our DJ. He really helped take a load off our shoulders and was very accommodating with all of our questions and emails for months. He was always readily available to help at no added expense.
Robert was instrumental in bridging the “Fiji time” gap from the organized way we are use to in Australia, both in the lead up to and on our wedding day. Our Shangri La wedding co-ordinator was not present on the day, our beach wedding was set up with a buffet with no real hospitality or direction. It was basically here is your space and you have it for 5 hours! Rob took control of the entire function and added structure and cohesion. He greeted all of our guests and seated them on arrival. He coordinated the buffet table by table and interacted with the Fijian staff and chefs by introducing them and asking them about the food they were preparing. He was funny and made everyone feel at ease and by making the night so much fun which added a priceless dimension to our day. He even came to our Wedding ceremony at the Chapel. Thanks Rob.
I cannot stress enough the difference Robert made to our dream Fiji wedding, had we not have made the decision to bring him along, our reception would never have been what it was. His organization and energy made the difference. We were worried about our wedding suffering from “Fiji time” attitude but our wedding MC made sure that we were very much on Sydney time! Cannot recommend him highly enough!"
Bula Vinaka Vakulele!
CHRISTINE & ROBERT GOMEZ ~ Shangri La Resort Coral Coast Fiji
"Robert Galati was the wedding MC for our reception at Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast. We are from Brisbane and heard about Robert through some friends before seeing him at another wedding we were invited to in Sydney last year.
We cannot speak highly enough about Robert and his contribution to our wedding day. We had 280 guests in the Grand Ballroom with an 8 piece band and 2 entertainment shows. His coordination and timing was incredible. It was our dream wedding and although it was a busy night we had a true professional who made it all come together on the night. He was a joy to work with during the lead up via phone and email and was always happy, upbeat and ready to help. He even made time to see us on a personal trip to Brisbane a month out from our wedding. Robert really allowed us to feel at ease on our wedding night and focus on what was important – celebrating our union with one another and with our family & friends. He took control and kept us informed on what was going on from start to finish and always with a smile on his face. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you!"
FRANCESCA & FRANK MONTEVERDE ~ Palazzo Versace Gold Coast QLD
"Robert did an exceptional job as MC for our wedding reception at Sergeants Mess in Mosman in December 2011.
He embraced our Lebanese culture and was a pleasure to deal with from day one. He met with prior to our wedding us at his Thai restaurant in Concord to discuss our order of the evening and was even kind enough to offer us lunch! We found Robert through Sergeants Mess as a preferred supplier and he was pivotal in making our night a huge success. We cannot thank Robert enough and Sergeants Mess for making our wedding reception so memorable."
DR JOSEPH & JAMAL AJAKA ~ Sergeants Mess
"I have had the pleasure of working with Robert over several years on weddings and events across Sydney. I can comfortably say that Robert’s professionalism and passion make him one of Sydney’s best all round wedding MC’s. His timing is impeccable and he knows how to set the tone at an event. He has a great understanding of every aspect of weddings and is a wonderful communicator with people on all levels.
As an event stylist and coordinator with an eye for perfection, I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Robert at events in the past.
A standout wedding was that of the son of business tycoon Paul Sathio to the daughter of the Indonesian ambassador to Australia at The Westin Sydney in 2010. With 680 dignitaries including Australian & Indonesian politicians (and a mini concert by Leo Sayer), it was left to Robert & myself to coordinate the event on the night and liaise with video and photography, The Westin banquet manager, Staging connections’ sound and AV director, and Leo Sayer himself. The event was a huge success and a truly unforgettable night. I recommend Robert very highly; look no further for your wedding MC."
