Some Ideas for Using Okanagan Town Crier at a Wedding

If you value an unique addition to your special day, consider the vocal talents and pageantry provided by the Okanagan Town Crier. Dressed in classical colourful livery, I deliver a key message to any-sized audience, after first capturing their attention by ringing s bell, and calling “Oyez! Three times.


Some of the ways you may wish to consider my services include the following:


A. Before and After the Wedding

  1. Announcements at the rehearsal party, to let participants know the schedule

  2. CRY - Memorable Wake up call for the bride or groom

  3. CRY Personal proclamation after wedding party has left the church – either to the new couple, or from the new couple

  4. Announcements about timing of photos, time and place of reception.


B. Reception:

  1.  Warm welcome for the guests as they arrive

  2.  CRY and then Lead in the head table

  3.  Helping hand to ensure seamless program continuity

  4.  Master of ceremonies, or assist an inexperienced Emcee

  5.  Announce the speakers

  6.  Thank you messages to family, guests, and other helpers

  7.  Announce cutting of cake, throwing garter, first dance, family dance, etc.
