Toastmastery FAQs

You got questions? I got answers

How long have you been doing this?

My first steps into toastmastery were twenty years ago. However, after a couple of weddings I moved on to other projects and got back into it in 2013. The experience I've built up over the years means I've probably seen most things a wedding can throw at me.

Are you insured?

Yes, I have £5million public liability insurance. On the subject of insurance, you should make sure that all fo your suppliers have PLI and I strongly recommend taking out your own wedding insurance.

What do you charge?

Unlike a lot of wedding suppliers, I'm happy to quote my prices publicly! for weddings in 2018 and beyond I charge £375 for my services as a toastmaster. That gets you at least two face-to-face meetings and my services for the whole of your wedding day. I don't charge extra for arriving early or staying after the first dance. I'll only charge more for travelling to a wedding venue more than 2 hours drive away.

How do we book you?

If I'm free on your date, I charge a non-refundable booking fee of 20% of the total costs.

Do we need to feed you?

This is a thorny subject! Some toastmasters like to have a small table to themselves next to the top table and to be served the same meal as the wedding guests. I don't do that. I can be much more use to you getting on with the job. I don't require you to feed me at all.

Will you be all shouty and bossy?

No.
