Take the worry out of your special day, every Bride and Bridegroom want their Wedding Day to be memorable from beginning to end. A lot of thought and preparation will have gone into the planning of this day, the Vicar or Registrar and venue will take priority, but who will ensure the reception runs smoothly? The answer is the Professional Toastmaster, he can supervise the greeting of the guests and the receiving line, announce the Bride and From, help with speeches, present the toasts, the cutting of the cake and much more. This leaves the Bridal couple, parents and best man to relax and enjoy the reception with their family and friends. Well before the special day a meeting will take place with the Bridal couple and the parents. Ensuring that all those concerned will be satisfied that the event will flow apparently effortlessly to a successful conclusion.


Here are some of the kind words that have been sent to me over the years. biog

Elizabeth and Lawrence Collins... Rhinefield 29th March 2018

Thank You...

Mike was fantastic, from the pre-wedding meeting, through to ensuring our day ran smoothly, We both felt very relaxed with Mike taking the lead, there was so much to do and it all fell into place. Mike is very easy to get on with and very subtle, he was great at always being there at the right time or when you needed him. He also made my best man's life very easy. I cannot speak highly enough of him,and would recommend a professional toastmaster for any wedding, especially Mike...We had the best day...thank you.

Thank you again Mike really appreciate everything you did.

We just wanted to thank you Sooooo much for the most incredible day EVER..on Saturday. We all had the best time, and everyone was saying how perfect it was. I guess it boils down to all the professionals that made the day, it was especially you. Michael you truly are something else, without you we generally believe our day would not have gone so smoothly as it did. You are an absolute master of ceremonies and we cannot thank you enough for being such an important part of our day.

Once again many thanks Marie and Adi

Dear Mike.

We want to thank you for making our day run so smoothly. Both Tom and I were so unbelievably impressed with how seamlessly you managed our day from start to finish, and how at ease you made us both feel. Taking all the stress out of what could have been a very stressful occasion.
Your professionalism and attention to detail did not go unnoticed and many of our friends have asked about you in the days following the wedding. We are both very pleased you were there to help celebrate our special day.

Thanks once again Rebecca and Tom

Words fail me, I cannot thank you enough for everything. From the moment we met you, you made us feel relaxed and reassured. We knew the day would be a success because you would be with us, and we feel honoured that you could share our special day with us. I wish we had a pound for everytime either Paul or I said ' I am not sure- I know we'll ask Mike, he will know!!! and you always did.

Thank you Mike for a fabulous, stress free day.

Dear Michael

We just felt we wanted to take this opportunity to send you our most sincere thanks and gratitude for giving us the most wonderful wedding day we could only of imagined. Your quiet professionalism and calming influence was fantastic, and your presence gave the day structure with finesse. As you said, formal but relaxed!

From the moment we met you at our house the week before our wedding you put our minds at rest and made us feel so at ease. Nothing was too much trouble for you.

We wanted to thank you especially for looking after us at those very private moments too, and for all your hints and tips. To have you there at our side was reassuring. I know the occasion would not have flowed as well without you and having you guiding us through the day, helped to create the fairytale wedding we dreamed of, and planned for so long even the weather was magical.

On behalf of us and all our guests we want to thank you for making our wedding day celebration truly one to remember and will stay with us always, giving us a lifetime of wonderful memories. Rest assured we are going to be the best advertisement for you as we can't praise you enough.

Kindest regards

Dear Michael,

We Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help on the day of our wedding, on November 5th 2010 at Rhinefield Hotel. Your presence and input gave the day structure and we felt that everything flowed so smoothly. You have a very calming influence which is very important......especially for nervous brides! Many of our guests commented on your skill and professionalism as well. We also really appreciated your continuous communication with us during the day....keeping us informed as to when the fireworks people DJ etc had arrived before we even had a chance to worry about it!! We just really felt that the day was ours to enjoy with all those details taken out of our hands and we had a really wonderful time.

Best wishes Laura and Sam
