Do I need a Toastmaster?

 

In many cases the venue may provide the Toastmaster for free or as part of your package, which may be the F&B Manager.  They tend to help with the order of the day and make any announcements necessary.  However, they work for the venue, whereas I work for the Host or the Bride & Groom and in my full regalia, will bring a style and image to your event whilst making sure your day runs smoothly to provide you with that petal perfect day.speeches etc, this is generally needed for the timeline.

If you have any concerns of queries, I am at your call at any time. 

 

Every wedding is completely unique and I work with you to find out what formalities and announcements that work for you to match your style

 

As a fully trained Toastmaster and member of the English Toastmasters Association so you can be certain that you will receive the best level of service and a high standard Code of Ethics that we all work with.
