Information For Garry Smith - The English Toastmaster

I'm a professionally trained toastmaster with a wealth of experience at over 250 weddings, varying from the very relaxed to the more traditional style and including specific customs and traditions.

When it comes to pomp & ceremony for Royalty or high class functions, it has always been said that the English excel – but why should it be limited exclusively to these types of events. Your wedding day deserves equal panache and one where I, as toastmaster, can bring a level of expertise and sophistication that will help create memories that will last a lifetime.

The traditional image of a ‘Toastmaster’ would often invoke the impression of a very formal occasion, one where the toastmaster, in full red ceremonial tailcoat, would make some announcements during the course of wedding breakfast and invariably leave soon after the wedding cake was cut.

Over recent years it has become apparent that couples expect more from their Master of Ceremonies and this undoubtedly includes a wider range of duties. Naturally the fabulous red tailcoat is still an expected feature which brings that element of pomp and ceremony. However, I have found nowadays that the toastmaster role tends to be slightly more contemporary by linking those elements of tradition with a warmer, personal and approachable disposition.

My toastmaster duties are much more complex and whilst being announcer and event organiser are a small part of my duties, I often find myself as gopher, sheepdog, seamstress, nanny, emergency flower arranger, controller of the tissues, stress ball and personal 'on the day' wedding coordinator too. The ceremonial attire means I'm the go-to-guy for everyone regarding help and advice during the day. This ensures that the wedding runs smoothly and without hiccup, allowing both couples and their guests to relax and enjoy every element of the day, filled with fun and laughter.
