For Your Wedding
There are numerous benefits to having a professional toastmaster at your wedding. A professional toastmaster will stand out from the crowd in their smart red tail-coat adding to the pomp and splendour of your special day.
Experience in dealing with all manner of formal occasions brings the toastmaster's skills into play, ensuring that your day will run smoothly and exactly as you have planned.
Toastmasters will discreetly go about their duties providing confidence and a calming influence to the bridal party. They will be experts on wedding etiquette and the protocol of the various cultures attending, which will ensure that the members of your bridal party and those who have key roles to fulfil during the reception, do so in the right order.
Engaging the services of a professional toastmaster will be one of the smallest expenses incurred on your wedding day, yet it will make a significant difference to the running and joy of one of the most important and memorable days of your life!
Ensure that the Toastmaster you appoint is bona fide and confirm they are a member of a recognised Guild such as the Toastmaster General Council www.toastmastersgeneralcouncil.org.
LADIES FESTIVALS AND BANQUETS
Whether it’s a small informal party or a large formal Banquet of 500 or more guests, held in a country manor, stately home, castle or marquee, a professional toastmaster will ensure that you and your guests will enjoy a memorable event.
Professional toastmasters always wear the traditional red tail coat, white Marcella shirt, waistcoat and bow tie all available to hire or buy. With gavel in hand the toastmaster will stand out from the crowd adding to the splendour of the occasion, discreetly going about their duties providing confidence and a calming influence for the hosts and guests. By tradition a toastmaster wears a black tail-coat in the City of London not a red one. www.londontoastmaster.com.
Furthermore with a professional toastmaster in attendance you can rest assured that any guests who have roles to fulfil during the function will do so in the right order.
