The Wedding Reception, whether it be a buffet or a fully seated Wedding Breakfast is, for those gathered together on that happy day, the most important social occasion on the calendar. It is therefore a matter of great concern that everything should go smoothly and happily, therefore it is only good sense to ensure that someone of great experience is on hand for the crowning event of a joyous and memorable day. Stephen with experience of over 1800 Weddings in locations from 5 star hotels to the local village hall can make sure your special day runs smoothly.

BANQUETS (Civic - Masonic - Rotary - Round Table - etc.)

For the Formal Banquet the Toastmaster is essential. With his knowledge of the correct etiquette for EVERY occasion the Toastmaster can assist the organiser to make the evening an outstanding success.


Award dinners not only need a star to present the awards but someone to ensure all goes to time and everyone knows when to prepare for their part be they recipient of an award or the presenter. Stephen has many years' experience of awards dinners with large crowds wanting to enjoy their evening.


At Conferences the Toastmaster can keep all the delegates informed of conference progress and any votes. They can be on hand to advise delegates where and when refreshments are available, when and where ancillary meetings are taking place etc.
