Do I need an MC for the perfect wedding reception?

I've worked with Dean, a marriage celebrant from Byron Bay in Australia, on a few projects. I basically act as a word-wrangler. Dean sends me the basic idea for a blog, and I massage and edit his words and ideas into a fully-fledged blog post. My aim is to create a blog post that informs and entertains while maintaining Dean's personality and identity. Because the customers are couples thinking about getting married, I aim for a light and friendly tone.
