Estelle has been working as a radio announcer since 2007. She has been nominated for three NZ Radio Awards and in 2009 won 'Best non-breakfast Announcer'. The job is about communicating with others and also being a good listener and connecting stories and people - this is why she is a great person to host events!
With a performing arts/theatre background, event management experience and a big voice Estelle is in high demand to host local events. She is great on the mic, a bit cheeky, able to read an audience and enjoys being in front of people.
"Getting out from the studio is something I really enjoy. Meeting people, engaging with them, bringing a sensitivity to an event and sharing/creating an energy to help set the tone. It's also a brilliant excuse to find the perfect dress, or cycle pants as the Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge proved to me!"
Estelle is not only an MC, but she is a registered Marriage Celebrant. She has hosted the Weetbix kids tryathlon over quite a few years now, and been a favourite over the years, as she knows how to keep to schedule, bring some fun but also clear communication on a super busy day. She has also hosted events locally, including the 'Christmas Glow Festival' in Titirangi, Movies and Music in Parks for Aucklad City Council, and is the MC at The Pink Star Walks with Breast Cancer NZ.
Previous clients include:
The Northland Business Awards, The Pink Star Walk with Breast Cancer NZ, Boxing Day Races Ellerslie (Fashion in the Field), Clevedon Polo, Northland Wine and Seafood Festival, Weetbix Kids Try-Athlon, Nelson Fashion on Morrison for the Regional Breast and Gynaecological Trust, Auckland Fashion Awards, Abel Tasman Cycle Challenge, Albany Christmas Carols.
Amazing work yesterday thank you so much, you made all those little hiccups smooth showing a true professional thank you and Merry Christmas!!"Christine Glover, Albany Community Co-ordinator
As a professional MC you succeeded in setting the high end tone we were seeking to establish... keeping our guests well informed and entertained... You were a pleasure to deal with Estelle and we would have you back any time.Angela, Fashion on Morrison
From the moment that we met Estelle, we knew that she would set the exact energy that we wanted for our wedding as our celebrant and MC. We had so much fun planning our ceremony with her, she really listened to what was special and important to us and gave so many fantastic and creative options for our vows. We had so many compliments from our guests on her personality and style; just the right amount of laughs and quirkiness mixed in with some very heartfelt words about our marriage. She ran the timeline of the day with ease, we felt so relaxed knowing that Estelle had our back and was an expert gathering our guests for photos, reception etc. We feel so incredibly lucky to have met Estelle and we highly highly endorse her as a wedding celebrant/MC.Sam Butler
