Wedding couples tell me that my services provide more than ‘traditional’ wedding toastmaster functions (making announcements, introducing speakers and so on). You can see comments on my websites. No pomposity; you are the 'stars' of your day, not me!
My services are dedicated to you from the moment of contact to the end of your special day. As your wedding toastmaster, I will give you the right balance of formality, tradition and pure fun.
Planning a wedding (and taking part!) is very exciting – but it can also be stressful. I aim to remove that stress so you can relax and enjoy being with your family and friends. I offer a modern approach which can include a wider range of duties than you might imagine. I am there to make sure things run exactly as you planned them. The ceremonial red tailcoat is still a main feature (I can, of course, wear less formal looking outfits if you prefer). I
'll perform all the traditional customs you might want, such as:
Welcoming guests, handling presents, getting people to where they need to be, making announcements, helping your photographer, hosting the cake-cutting ceremony, introducing (and reassuring!) your wedding speech-makers, keeping your guests involved and, if appropriate, announcing the first dance. As an ex-children's entertainer, I will help this young generation feel involved and have a memorable time.
As your wedding celebrant, , I will give you the ceremony in the style you want it, where you want it and at the time you want it: You choose the venue - home, garden, beach, pub, marquee, boat, historic site, woodland, sports field, hot air balloon (on reflection, please don't pick that option!).
You choose the timing - daytime, night-time, by candlelight or by moonlight.
You can register your marriage quickly and cheaply at a registry office and then, sometime later, let me help you get the wedding ceremony you have dreamt of.
I look forward to speaking to you.
