TOASTMASTER AND MASTER OF CEREMONIES


As a modern Toastmaster, I ensure that a happy and relaxed atmosphere is enjoyed by the Bridal Party and their guests making sure that the day runs exactly the way you want it with as much or as little formality as you require.

In effect I act as your "Stage-Manager" - Liaising with the Caterer - Venue Management - Photographer - Videographer and Band/Disco, ensuring that your wishes are carried out and dealing with any problem that might arise, enabling you to be a guest at your own celebration.

All this is discussed and agreed at a meeting that takes place before the happy day.  In addition, I am available to advise guests making speeches and toasts regarding protocol and content should they require guidance. 

My duties for a wedding would be as follows:

  • Arrive at the venue in good time to check that your instructions have been carried out - initially meet with the Caterer to confirm the timetable and running order of events - top table and quest seating arrangements are as agreed - ensure that flowers, table decorations and favours are in place - make sure that cameras (where organised) are on tables - ensure that any gifts and presentations are readily to hand - have the Guest Book ready for circulating and generally make sure that everything at the venue is as it should be.
  • Meet and greet guests as they arrive
  • Liaise with Photographer/Videographer to organise group photos
  • Organise and arrange the Receiving Line (if required)
  • Announce the Bride and Bridegroom into the Dining Room
  • Recite Grace (if required)
  • Make any special announcements (i.e. no smoking - cameras on tables - Guest Book - switch off mobile phones etc)
  • Organise and announce Toasts and Speeches - ensuring that gifts and presentations are readily to hand when needed
  • Progress the Guest Book around the room
  • Announce the first dance (if required)
  • Handle the departure of the Bride & Bridegroom (if required) and generally ensure that the function runs smoothly and efficiently enabling the wedding party to relax and enjoy the day.
