The Benefits of having a Professional Toastmaster at Your Wedding

There are a great many benefits for a Professional Toastmaster officiating on your Wedding Day. Perhaps one of the most obvious is the traditional 'pink' or red tailcoat uniform that adds not just a touch of finesse, but is easily recognisable as playing a lead but discreet role in the organisation and smooth running of your most special of days. It is one of my intentions to ensure that as part of what I do helps to provide confidence and calm the nerves of the key players within the bridal party. As a Professional Toastmaster I am trained in wedding etiquette and protocol and knowing who needs to do 'what' and 'when' to ensure the smooth running of your wedding.This is a far cry from those who think that all a Toastmaster does is announcements....now that would be very simple! Much would have been already discussed with you as the Bride and Groom beforehand and a 24 hour timeline produced to ensure that what you would like to happen really does happen on your Wedding Day. One of my trusted values is ensuring it is Your Wedding…..Your Way.

My role as your Professional Toastmaster on the Wedding Day

Part of what I do on the day behind the scenes is to liaise with the venue, caterers, photographers/videographers etc but specifically for you I will also;

Support the speakers with their speeches

Greet your guests to the reception

Organise the receiving line and announce your guests

Co-ordinate the reception of guest gifts and cards

Ensure guests are aware of the seating plan

Formally announce the Bridge and Groom to guests attending the wedding breakfast and escort to their seats

Say Grace if applicable

Read cards and messages if applicable

Announce the toasts and the speakers

Ensure the guestbook is circulated and signed by those in attendance

Assist in the presentation of special gifts or bouquets to significant guests

Announce the retiring of the 'happy couple' from the table

Organise and announce the cutting of the wedding cake

Announce the arrangements for the evening including the first dance if applicable

Be available for anything else to ensure the perfect day 

Although this is not a definitive list it does give an indication of what you can expect but I will also be there to expect the unexpected!

As your Professional Toastmaster I am proud to be part of your day and ensure you have the wedding of your dreams. You might also wish me to assist at the wedding ceremony / service itself whether in a church or another civil ceremony venue and support you and your guests with things such as buttonholes and corsages and be of practical help to the photographer / videographer.

Above all as your Professional Toastmaster I am there for YOU on YOUR wedding day! 

If you would like the services of a modern Professional Toastmaster & Master of Ceremonies with traditional values, please get in contact with me to arrange for a no obligation conversation. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
