The Best Toast Master

Des was just amazing! His funny, happy, friendly personality shone through to our guest whilst always remaining absolutely professional. My husband and I adored him, the wedding party and 250 guests absolutely loved him. We have had some many comments about him and how he made the day even more perfect! I witnessed Des at a wedding 10 years ago and promised myself when I got married he would be the toast master. I am so glad I stayed true to my word as he did not let us down or disappoint. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you need a toast master, this is the one you need.

The best decision and best money spent for our wedding!

This review is LONG overdue but absolutely has to be made. After planning, moving and replanning a post covid wedding, we finally got our big day on 21st August 2021. We had attended weddings in the past where other guests were responsible for organising the flow of the day, introducing speeches etc but post covid we really just wanted all of our guests and family to relax and enjoy our day as much as we wanted to. We didn’t want the stress of having to be in control of the timings of the day, we just wanted to be in the moment and enjoy it so we decided to hire a toast master to look after all of the details. We made a few enquiries with a couple of companies as our date was getting closer and closer, lockdown had been lifted and it was actually going to happen this time. Thank GOD Des had availability. From the second we spoke with him we knew we wanted him as a part of our wedding. We were on the phone for a good hour at least, talking wedding details alongside hip hop, trainers, business and more. We knew Des would fit right in, infact even enhance the vibe we wanted for the day of our wedding and we were 100% right. All of our guests were commenting on how amazing he was. The atmosphere was so fun yet relaxed and everyone including ourselves really appreciated how the flow of the day felt well organised yet entirely effortless. Des got stuck right in and felt like another guest at our wedding, we would have happily had him there even if he wasn’t working the event. The entire process of hiring Des was seamless and we would 100% recommend Des for anybody looking to hire a Master of Ceremonies. We don’t plan on getting married again of course 🤣, but we would absolutely ask Des to join us for any future events we would need hosting. Thank you for making our day so special and memorable Des.

A no brainer decision!

We are so happy that we found Des and were able to have him as our toastmaster! Des was easily the best decision made and money spent on the day and we would highly recommend him. We had spoken to a few toastmaster, but knew as soon as we spoke to Des that he was the one. He totally understood us as a couple, and was the exact vibe and energy we were looking for. Des was easy to get in touch with in the lead up, and we felt reassured throughout that the day was in good hands. Des worked closely with our venue coordinator and photographer to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Des is very professional and organised, he took time to understand how we wanted the day to go and on the day he was really engaged with guests which took some pressure off us. Our guests are still telling us how great he was! Overall, we couldnt recommend Des more and are so grateful that he was a part of our day.

The best man for the job

Des was absolutely amazing, we were going to ask a friend to be out toast master, I’m so glad we didn’t, don’t worry our friend agrees too. 🤣

Des was very professional, he entertained our guests, made them feel comfortable and kept them informed of the coming events throughout the day. Which was great when we were running behind schedule.

During the breakfast, while everyone was eating, he went around the tables interacting with the guests, getting some of them to sing along to our background music…. One person in particular was Uncle Devon - he couldn’t sing to save his life but he tried and went along with it for us, this definitely broke the ice and made people feeling a lot more comfortable. Sadly Devo passed away 2021 and that is a memory the family will cherish forever and Des made it happen.

Our guests loved Des! 3 years later and people are still talking about how good our wedding was!!
If you have second doubts don’t, he is the man for your wedding.

Des is a must have at your wedding

Having a toast master at our wedding was something we wanted but weren't sure if it was a necessary cost. Let me tell you we are so glad we decided to go ahead with booking Des, he is a must have at your wedding! He did a fantastic job of making all my guest feel welcome and moving the wedding along whilst being accessible for suppliers and the venue. He is super friendly, confident and managed even my most rowdy of guest with ease. Having him there to introduce us and the speeches was fantastic and he really does make it feel extra special. One of my guests said she felt like she was in Downton Abbey! Fantastic guy, get him booked!

Toastmaster on our wedding day

From planning the service we required, to our wedding day, Des was a pleasure to work with. Des made the day so special, he entertained all of the guests and helped our special day run smoothly and exactly how we planned it to be. We would 100% recommend Des as a toastmaster to friends and family and feel that our day would not have been the same without his service. Thank you Des!
