The Typical Wedding (spoiler: There's No Such Thing!)

When you book me as your toastmaster you get someone you can trust at your side for the whole day. I'm happy to help set up in the morning and, though my duties normally finish after the first dance, I can be there at the end when all your guests have gone.

I promise I will do everything in my power to make your wedding day the very best it can be. Pretty much nothing is below my dignity

Here's a list of some of the things I've been asked to do at weddings, some of them are what you might expect. Some might surprise you:
