Toastmaster / Master of Ceremony
Full Description
As a professional project planner I fully understand the importance of dealing with professional suppliers who, like myself, have a passion for quality weddings, the importance of clear and concise communications and open and honest working relationships. My very first wedding was in 1984 and since then I have attended over 1500 wedding events in one capacity or another. I currently organise up to 30 wedding fayres a year and act as host for YOUR wedding, ensuring everything happens as it should on the day. You only plan to have one wedding, there are no second chances, we need to get it right that one time.
