Master of ceremonies, and that’s the point - a Master, a real Master of his trade.
We found Guy through our wedding planner, Laura Hillman and what a find! From our very first meeting we felt really comfortable with Guy’s approach, his obvious experience, knowledge and clear understanding of what we required.
What we liked was his friendly manner and desire to work with us and guide us through our wedding day.
Right from the start and throughout our wedding day Guy’s professionalism, his friendly authority and attention to detail made our day extra special - which included a bespoke tribute to us, which we loved.
Guy is marvellous and we wholeheartedly recommend him.

Made our wedding one to remember!
Guy was a brilliant toastmaster for our wedding! He went above and beyond to make our wedding day flow as smoothly as it did, our venue was a dry hire and I had sleepless nights wondering how the day would flow and who would introduce the speeches, announce the cake cutting, first dance and more but soon as I found Guy I stopped worrying about any of those things as he takes all those worries from you.
He is a brilliant addition to a wedding and we are so glad we had him! Leading up to the wedding he also gave great advice for the speeches by sending the men a guide and talked us through our day step by step which made it feel very exciting!
Thankyou Guy for everything you helped us with and for helping make our wedding one to remember!

We couldn't have pulled it off without Guy
What can we say - Guy was brilliant!
Our big day finally happened on Saturday 2nd July this year (2022) after being postponed THREE times due to Covid.
Guy was so patient with us throughout the wedding build up with changing our date so many times and he made us feel relaxed because of this. He is quick to respond to emails and texts and is always happy to help!
We had two meetings before the big day, one via zoom and one phone call, which were 2 weeks before and week of the wedding to run through the breakdown of the day. We found it super helpful as changes were happening daily!
On the day, Guy was one of the first people there to welcome us as we got out of our wedding car.
Guy was the man who let us know where we needed to be whenever we asked - which we truly needed as our day had over 150 guests and did not run in the traditional order (for example; we had the cake cutting - our dessert- and toasts BEFORE the wedding breakfast! As my partner wouldn't have been able to eat the dinner with his nerves).
Guy brings with him a big voice which is so needed with a large group of people - especially Aunties who have selective hearing haha!
Guy was on it from the start and he even adds in his little surprises and speeches at each relevant moment on the day.
He was also brilliant rounding up family members for photos too!
Thank you Guy for being a part of our big day - we couldn't have pulled it off without you.

Attention to detail and meticulous planning
Having found Guy via his website we were initially impressed with his video montage and how he could command attention to relay important information to wedding guests.
After our email of enquiry Guy arranged a FaceTime in order for us to discuss various topics. He gave an introduction on himself, asked us about our lives, careers, interests and, importantly, our big day.
He described how he would keep the day flowing, removing any potential stress from our shoulder, in order for our day to be an enjoyable one, and gave advice on the traditional components of a wedding - citing speeches, pre meal grace and much more.
This FaceTime kickstarted our vison of how our wedding day would be, as Guy explained the connection he would make between himself, the venue and our other suppliers - with timings at the heart of the day ticking over as it should.
A month prior we met Guy at our wedding venue and ran through the space, timings and back up plans should the weather not be favourable. We also spoke a week prior where we finalised all the necessary points and made slight amendments to the schedule. Guy was very flexible with this and worked with us after we spoke with him regarding some minor tweaks to the running order.
Two days prior to the wedding we were advised of a demonstration that was planned to start at midday opposite our venue. This could potentially have caused an issue for both suppliers and guests arriving for our celebrations. After notifying Guy he put our minds at rest and advised a course of action to reduce any impact the demo may have. He contacted the transport company who were bringing our guests from the church to the venue, whilst also liaising with my best man via SMS. He provided them both with information he had gathered from Police officers in attendance regarding any road closures and the demo route. Guy went above and beyond doing this as he arrived early with the purpose of finding out as much as possible to remove any stress from us and to avoid disruption with our schedule.
During the drinks and canapés reception Guy made our guests feel welcome, helping with any queries regarding gifts or table plan that they had. With the call to the wedding breakfast he swiftly guided our guests into The Ballroom and subsequently announced us with an impressive formal entry. From the afternoon into the evening Guy announced the wedding breakfast, introduced the three speeches and then onto the first dance and cake cutting.
All in all it was a pleasure to work with Guy. Our decision to engage his services paid dividends with the attention to detail he applied to all areas of our day and the meticulous planning in the run up, which assisted with removing any room for error. He communicated with us on the day, keeping us up to date with proceedings and more importantly reminding us to enjoy every minute.

Don’t have your wedding without Guy!
If you’re searching for a toastmaster, stop looking.
You’ve found the one! Guy was one of the key people at our wedding for more than just his smart appearance but also his professionalism, politeness and organisation. We met with him weeks before the wedding and on the wedding day he ensured that everything we wanted including how we wanted it, was done. Like every wedding, there’s a timetable but easy to get carried away and time just flys by. The main thing that stands out for me was Guy was very attentive, Reminding me of the things that I wanted to happen and the timings etc.. was key to our wedding flowing beautifully. The introductions throughout the day were brilliant along with the managing of guests throughout the photographs. My genuine thoughts are that the effort he put it were as if it was his own wedding he was organising. I seriously can’t see how anyone could not have a toastmaster and having searched around everywhere myself when initially looking I’m so pleased to have had Toastmaster Guy 🍻🎉

Professional, Personalised, Perfect!
Guy was a late addition to our wedding planning and we are so glad we booked him! He made such a difference in the lead up to the day and on the day itself to ensure we felt completely at ease, confident and guided by a true professional. Great suggestions were made, with us also feeling comfortable to talk through options and change from the norm if needed.
Guy met us at our venue in advance so we felt excited that everything was going to be taken care of on the day itself. Guests commented how great he was and conducted himself in a very professional but friendly manner. A great addition to any wedding day - highly recommend!

Even more perfect than we could imagine
We couldn’t recommend Guy enough, from the moment we engaged with Guy he was professional, personable and he really takes time to get to know the type of event you are holding to ensure that it all runs smoothly. Blending two cultures can be tricky at times but the stress was completely taken away from us.
Guy responds to all questions and queries in a wonderfully timely manner.
We arranged to meet with us a few weeks before our wedding at the venue to discuss the finer details and he checked over our schedule and made a few suggestions to help our day to be even more perfect than we had imagined.
Guy was on hand throughout our wedding reception with his incredibly calm demeanour.

Guy made our day feel very special
We cannot recommend Guy highly enough! So very professional, polite and well organised and he looked magnificent on our wedding day.
We had a long meeting with him before our day to go through all the details of how we wanted our day to run and he was a great help with that and also helped with the speeches that we were struggling with.
On the day itself Guy kept everything well organised - engaged with our guests who all loved him - and kept us informed and calm.
I am not good at ‘letting go of the reins’ but I felt relaxed and confident in Guys capable hands.
Guy made our day feel very special.
Carol Farey, Downham Hall

Simply stated- Guy made our day.
We didn’t have a care in the world all day because Guy was there. He kept us informed about what was going on, how we could optimize, and even worked out moving up our wedding breakfast to better suit the events as they were unfolding. Even with some rambunctious guests, Guy was able to conduct the crowd and gain attention whenever needed. He skillfully executed a “bubble tunnel” with all of the guests present while we walked through the bubbles… not an easy feat.
Bottom line- We couldn’t imagine our wedding day running as smoothly or carefree as it did without Guy. Hands down, amazing toastmaster!
In addition to the exceptional service that Guy provides on the day of the wedding, he is also available to bounce ideas off from the minute we engaged with him. He provided valuable advice for speeches, flow of the day for planning, and assured us of his role months before the wedding. Guy was available and responsive for any and all of our needs. Well worth the money and then some!!
Laura Ladick, Orsett Hall - November 2021
We can’t thank Guy enough for his incredible service on our day. He was so organised and made sure our day ran smoothly. He was such good fun too and really up for a challenge (that was our untraditional day). He genuinely just wanted us to have the best time!
Our day would never have run as smooth if we didn’t have Guy and we both said he was the best money we spent on because you can sit back and enjoy the day without any worry.
Lovely friendly person too who clearly loves his job. So, so good at what he does we can’t thank him enough!

Guy is just excellent!
From the moment we first met Guy, we knew instantly that he would do such a fantastic job at our wedding. Guy was so attentive, he helped our guests navigate the venue and also made sure they were in the right place at the right time. Even with some hiccups, Guy dealt with them so quickly and we were oblivious as to what was happening!
Thank you Guy for being fantastic!

There are not enough superlatives - What A Guy!
Our wedding ran with ease. If anyone is worried about the running of the day, book Guy! He was briiliant from start to finish. We had a long meeting us beforehand to go through proceedings step by step. We hold him in the highest regard, especially as he changed his plans to accommodate us!
Professional, friendly and he looked the part! Guy truly adds a touch of class to your day.

Professionalism second to none
Guy was Toastmaster at the Rainham Lodge 3079 Ladies night, which was held at the Stifford Hall Hotel in Thurrock. Guy arranged an initial meeting to discuss details and requirements, and from then on we knew we had made the right choice.
His professionalism, both up to and on the night was second to none. The evening was a great success, not least through the invaluable help and assistance given by Guy. We cannot thank him enough.
Mr J Lowry, festival secretary, Rainham Lodge 3079.
Best day possible
Guy was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. He demonstrated the upmost professionalism throughout our wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble to ensure we had the best day possible, Guy always went above and beyond. Could not recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much Guy!

Guy helped make the day perfect
Toastmaster Guy helped make the event run smoother than we ever could without him. The special speech he gave during the cutting of the cake was both touching and lovely. And we would easily recommend him to anyone getting married.
Guy helped make the day perfect and we were more than honoured to have him as a part of our special day.
Louise and Bradley Burke, Orsett Hall, August 2019
Get Guy for your special day!
Guy is an absolutely amazing Toastmaster and great addition to any wedding. We were a bit nervous on the big day itself as there were a lot of moving parts, but as soon as Guy came in all those nerves were alleviated as he was in complete control of every potential situation.
He was great at bringing up the atmosphere in the room, ran a great Mr and Mrs game and kept everything really well on time! In advance of the big day, we had several check ins to make sure all organised. This was a day with two different cultures coming together (Hindu and Muslim) and Guy was very mindful and respectful of this.
Lastly, as a couple on the day it's really important to having calming influences on the day and Guy was definitely this and more. We had complete trust in him on the day and this helped us so much.
I can't recommend Guy highly enough. If you are on the fence about having a Toastmaster (I was initially) - definitely take the plunge and get Guy for your special day!!! Thank you so much again Guy!

Guy is a toastmaster working to the highest level.
I am luxury wedding planner and I recently booked Guy to act as Master of Ceremonies for a high-end wedding on behalf of my clients at Carlton House Terrace, London.
From the outset Guy understood the brief, adapting his service to the needs of my clients. He was an excellent communicator and incredibly professional throughout. On the day he was invaluable to me. He ensured the smooth running of the entire day, keeping guests informed, and looking after my couple.
Knowing guests and clients were in safe hands with Guy I was able to focus on my role and oversee other areas. When the dinner over-ran he made recommendations to ensure that evening guests were not kept waiting - it was amazing to have this level of problem solving and input from a toastmaster!
He is a key team player, provides a first-class service at all times, and exceeds his clients expectations. I wouldn't hesitate at recommending Guy and can't wait to work with him again!
Laura Hillman, luxury wedding planner, Carlton House Terrace - July 2022.
We didn't know what to fully expect of a toastmaster and what sort of impact they would have on a wedding day, but now both us and our guests know how valuable they are thanks to Guy. We were incredibly impressed by your calm and professional demeanour on the day - you were organised and collected - keeping everything running smoothly.
Your dedication to getting everything right is second to none - Guy met with us at the venue in advance of the wedding to go over every detail. It really put our minds at rest - we only wish other suppliers were as dedicated!
You interacted so well with our guests and calmed the nerves of the speechmakers - no task was too great. Wishing you well for the future Guy - thank you again for helping us make beautiful memories. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others.
Mr and Mrs Barnes, The Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park - August 2019
Delivered an amazing service
We came across Guy's Toastmaster services on Hitched, and the reviews we read filled us with confidence from the outset. Guy was very responsive to our initial messages and patient given our busy schedules, and we eventually arranged a date to meet and discuss the details of our day.
We were so impressed with our first meeting with Guy - it was a chance to really get to know each other and it was clear we were working with a real professional. We spoke about the agenda, the atmosphere we wanted to create on the day and the key people of the wedding party. Guy was very transparent that he had never done a Bengali-Muslim wedding before and we were very transparent about how chaotic they can usually be! Having said that, Guy covered every detail and explained how he can bring order to the day. Guy stayed in touch right up to the big day, which was also very reassuring.
Guy arrived on time (early if anything!), ready to greet our guests which bought a real sense of order and flair to the event. Everything ran to time perfectly which is near enough unheard of for weddings in our community! Guests were raving on the day about how good a job he was doing, and continue to mention it because everyone was so impressed. Guy commanded a real presence in the room without taking away from us and our guests, ensuring the agenda ran on time, but still being respectful and cooperative if something wasn't happening when it should've. He always got it back on track and made me and Murad feel very comfortable and care-free on the day - which makes the whole day that much more memorable.
For any bride hoping for a toastmaster who is professional, listens to the kind of wedding day you want whilst delivering an amazing service, Guy is the toastmaster for you. Our wedding would not have been the same without him. Guy truly did justice to himself and his Guild and we could not recommend his services highly enough.
Maria & Murad Hussain, Richmond Hill Hotel - December 2019
From the moment we met Guy we knew that we had made a great decision in choosing him as our toastmaster. Guy played a huge part in helping our day run smoothly and our guests absolutely loved him.
He made the effort to talk to everyone and kept checking on us throughout the day.
Professional, personable and a fantastic toastmaster, what a genuinely lovely man. We highly recommend Guy.
Mr & Mrs Kewhe Unude, Oaks Farm, Surrey - February 2020
Took away the worry
We would both like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the part you played on our wedding day. From the first the moment we all met we knew we were in good hands - you made us feel at ease from day one. This is a feat in itself as we were both very nervous, you left us comfortable and confident about our day.
Throughout the day you were professional and organised and were even on hand to pass a much needed drink! On a personal note from the bridegroom, you took away a days worry from one of life's natural worriers. Lastly, your tribute at the end was a tearjerker, not only for us, but our guests as well. Thankyou once again for everything.
