Stress free day

He took the pressure off the day by entertaining guests which took the stress out for me worrying. He is so funny too. Many people said it was a great idea and just loved him.

Fabulous toastmaster. Made our day.

We don’t believe our day would have gone as smoothly as it did without Will. Everyone commented on how great he was. Nothing was too much trouble. Will was not only our toastmaster but our wedding organiser on the day. Better than our own wedding planner! Couldn’t have managed the day without this lovely, jolly, very organised, caring man. Thank you so much. Couldn’t recommend Will enough for any occasion!

Absolutely amazing

Will was an amazing toastmaster, 100% completed my wedding, tied it altogether, organised everything, even helped me find a videographer last minute when I couldn’t! Everyone love Will and will recommend him in the future for my friends, one of the best things we spent our money on

The future of toastmasters!

Im so lucky to have had Will as my toastmaster, he is a down to earth fun guy who made my day spectacular! Nothing was too much trouble for Will he was very professional from start to finish and all my guests havnt stopped praising him since! There was never a dull moment throughout my day as he made sure to create the perfect atmosphere and entertain all my guests. Having been to other weddings that used toastmasters and looked at others recommended by my venue and in my area Will is by far the best! He has such high standards and brings toastmasters into the 21st century. If your looking for someone unique to entertain your guests, coordinate your day, hype you up and even fluff your veil and dress then i 1000% recommend Will! I honestly couldnt imagine my day without him, hes worth his weight in gold!

fantastic Experience

What can I say! Will at Elite Toastmaster is just superb at his job, kind, extremely funny, dapper and above all has that attention to detail. He’s there for you before you even know you need him, this is a quality every Bride & Groom need on their big day to let them enjoy! After seeing Will at work I need to get my other half to propose so I can book him straight away 🥰🤣 xx anyone reading this review, don’t hesitate, he is worth his weight in gold.

Excellent service and a complete professional!

In my role as Wedding Celebrant, it was delightful to work alongside Will. He was a complete professional and kept the couple and their guests entertained during the day. Everyone knew seamlessly what to do and where to go. A true Pro and I hope we cross paths again!

Where there's a Will - there's a perfect day!

Will really helped to make it a stressful event; from helping to plan our Las Vegas theme and helping to suggest some great ideas like a table to table magician- which we hadn't thought of! Will was very tactful in including my 'very over eager' Mum in ideas, without there being any awkwardness. On the day Will was great at helping welcoming guests and pointing out the little things you don't think of- like directing guests to the cloakroom, then liaising with the caterers, DJ, casino croupiers and the Elvis impersonator! It all ran like clockwork. Many guests commented on how great Will was.
Will's personality dazzles and really adds a sparkle to any event!

Wonderful asset, made the day flow freely

Toastmaster Will Buckley took charge quietly, efficiently and with a commanding presence, he was great. The whole day went with a swing, certainly a major influence in the success of the wedding. Thank you Will.

Italian flavour

Highly recommend this absolute gentleman! We had so many great comments about Will on the day and a week later. Such a calming influence and embraced all our quirky family/Italian traditions. It's been great to hear other suppliers (he hadn't worked with) say he was the best they'd experienced.
Thank you again Will.
Toastmasters are a must and totally take the stress away from the organisation of a day.
Lots of love,
Mr & Mrs Norton
