The Best Toast Master

5 stars - The Midlands Toastmaster are Highly Recommended
booked The Midlands Toastmaster for their Wedding August 2023

“Des was just amazing! His funny, happy, friendly personality shone through to our guest whilst always remaining absolutely professional. My husband and I adored him, the wedding party and 250 guests absolutely loved him. We have had some many comments about him and how he made the day even more perfect! I witnessed Des at a wedding 10 years ago and promised myself when I got married he would be the toast master. I am so glad I stayed true to my word as he did not let us down or disappoint. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. If you need a toast master, this is the one you need.”

A no brainer decision!

booked The Midlands Toastmaster for their Wedding November 2022

“ We are so happy that we found Des and were able to have him as our toastmaster! Des was easily the best decision made and money spent on the day and we would highly recommend him. We had spoken to a few toastmaster, but knew as soon as we spoke to Des that he was the one. He totally understood us as a couple, and was the exact vibe and energy we were looking for. Des was easy to get in touch with in the lead up, and we felt reassured throughout that the day was in good hands. Des worked closely with our venue coordinator and photographer to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Des is very professional and organised, he took time to understand how we wanted the day to go and on the day he was really engaged with guests which took some pressure off us. Our guests are still telling us how great he was! Overall, we couldnt recommend Des more and are so grateful that he was a part of our day. ”

booked The Midlands Toastmaster for their Wedding

“This review is LONG overdue but absolutely has to be made. After planning, moving and replanning a post Covid wedding, we finally got our big day on 21st August 2021. We had attended weddings in the past where other guests were responsible for organising the flow of the day, introducing speeches etc but post Covid we really just wanted all of our guests and family to relax and enjoy our day as much as we wanted to. We didn’t want the stress of having to be in control of the timings of the day, we just wanted to be in the moment and enjoy it so we decided to hire a toast master to look after all of the details. We made a few enquiries with a couple of companies as our date was getting closer and closer, lockdown had been lifted and it was actually going to happen this time. Thank GOD Des had availability. From the second we spoke with him we knew we wanted him as a part of our wedding. We were on the phone for a good hour at least, talking wedding details alongside hip hop, train...”
