Hui-Lin was ahhhh-maxing!!!! We have no regrets for choosing her as our celebrant and emcee. Let me explain why. Firstly, it was the first wedding I was immediately involved in organising, I am not at all creative and the wedding got too overwhelming too quickly.
Thankfully Hui-Lin was able to provide recommendations and ideas, such as wording that we can use to exchange our vows. Hui-Lin has some good tips and tricks up her sleeves which jazzed up the wedding day. Hui-Lin need not be prompted to come up with those ideas which is what I love the most, as that’s one less thing I had to stressed about!
Secondly, Hui-Lin wasn’t lying when she states that she is fluent in English and Mandarin. My guests all said, it all just flowed so well.
Thirdly and most importantly, on the wedding day I honestly can only remember speaking to Hui-Lin for less than 10 times. Hui-Lin would improvise and just got the day running smoothly through liaising with the camera person, family persons etc. I honestly did not have to worry and made my day just that much less stressful.

Thanks Hui Lin for being our wedding celebrant and also reception emcee !! She understands the important balance between communicating the formalities and injecting some fun. Too much of either makes for a cringe-worthy wedding experience for everyone. All well-planned and went so well for our big day. Many of my guests told me that our wedding is the best they’ve ever been to.
I’m pleased to say the planning and preparation paid off!! I believe without Hui Lin my plan would not be perfect!! - so all in all, a success! Thank you so so so much Hui Lin!! And also thanks to your big assistant Ken too!!

My wife and I are truly blessed to have Hui-Lin to be our celebrant and emcee for our wedding ceremony and reception. We wanted someone who could speak fluent English and Chinese Mandarin, and she was absolutely the best and perfect person for the role. Besides that, she was also a really good entertainer who knew how to say all the right words to keep the atmosphere so lively. All of our guests have really enjoyed our wedding, and I believe that was primarily because of Hui-Lin's lively and confident character who has made everyone felt so comfortable.
Hui-Lin is super organised. She will make sure everything is well prepared before the wedding day to ensure all will run as smooth as possible. I highly recommend her service.
