A Professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies specialising in weddings
of all types – civil, religious, or humanist.
Professional Toastmaster & Master Of Ceremonies
No person or organisation does ‘Ceremony’ quite like ‘The Guards’ and after a 14-year career in The Scots Guards the word ceremony is ingrained in my DNA. Couple that with several years spent managing functions and events in the officer’s mess, often hosting royalty and other VIPs, and you are provided with the consummate professional.
Many venues tell you that they provide a master of ceremonies within their packages. At most venues of course you don’t actually get a free Master of Ceremonies, what you get is a member of staff (usually the Duty Manager) who is tasked with making your announcements – also whilst ensuring food service is on time, the bar is running properly and several other jobs. This means that they are not fully focused on you – the happy couple – especially in a busy hotel where they might be the only manager on duty.
Unobtrusive, well versed in all forms of etiquette and protocol, I am always on hand to deal with any issues or hiccups that may arise leaving you with the freedom and confidence to relax, mingle with your guests and enjoy your big day.
I don’t plan your wedding, you do that. I manage it on the day though alongside making your announcements – liaising with your venue and other suppliers to ensure that everything goes according to your plans allowing you to relax and mingle you’re your guests safe in the knowledge that the day is being steered and guided according to your wishes.
