Your own Toastmaster

The icing on the cake, add a Toastmaster to your wedding day!

Enhance your wedding day in Berkshire,Bucks,Hampshire,Oxon and Surrey with Patrick Collins as your Toastmaster. Trained by Peter York; a protege of Ivor Spencer, Patrick is a member of the Executive Guild of Toastmasters & Towncriers. He will bring a calm and professional presence to your wedding day, making sure everything runs smoothly and will add a definite touch of class to your day in his traditional uniform of red tail coat, black trousers patent shoes white bow tie and Marcella shirt.

 

A toastmaster is there specifically to enhance your wedding day, not to be a showman or be overbearing and Patrick's style is one of friendliness and

professionalism. He can help ensure that there is a framework to the wedding that smooths the way for the day. He will answer those tricky wedding questions: Who makes a speech and in what order? Who proposes a toast and to whom? Who should be in the receiving line? When do you cut the wedding cake and all other questions on protocol and etiquette. Typically, on your wedding day Patrick will arrive one hour before the wedding in order to check timings with suppliers and key guests. Later on, after the wedding service he will greet the bride, bridegroom and guests and will guide them into the venue. He can help the photographer organise the guests for the all important photographs, and if you have one, announce your guests to the receiving line prior to the wedding breakfast.

 

Once your guests have entered the Wedding breakfast area and have taken their seats according to the table plan, Patrick will then announce and bring the Bride and Bridegroom to the top table. Then, if needed, he will introduce a chosen person to say Grace or say Grace himself. Speeches can be made either before or after the wedding breakfast. The cutting of the cake is normally done after the wedding breakfast and Patrick will announce both of these. Generally then the duties of the Toastmaster are at an end. However Patrick will be delighted to stay to announce the first dance or even to personally thank the guests for coming at the end of the evening. For this, he will change into evening dress.

 

At all points, flexibility is Patrick's byword and he will help you create and manage your perfect day.
