Ian was the consummate professional in the planning, design and running of our day. Every bride needs to have Ian on their special day to take the strain away. He listened, suggested but most of all delivered exactly what we wanted. Simply fantastic service and made the day run smoothly and totally stress free. Thank you so much.

Another Amazing Wedding at Pendley Manor!

"Thank you for being our wonderful toastmaster, you were an absolutely fantastic addition to the day and you helped everything run so seamlessly, Adam and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! You were incredibly energetic and fun and our guests were very sad to see you leave – many of them hadn’t been to a wedding before with a toastmaster and commented on what great value you added .."
