“A huge thanks to Roy for helping to make our big day everything we wanted and more.
When we hired Roy to be our Toastmaster he promised us that he would manage all of the suppliers,
make sure timings were stuck too and keep the day on track doing everything he could to make the day the best of our lives.
All I can say is that he delivered and more- all we had to think about was enjoying ourselves and capturing the moment.
For those of you out there wondering whether to have a Toastmaster or not just DO IT.”
Now that we have had time to catch our breath, I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did as Toastmaster on Abi and Daniel's big day.
Without you it would not have run so smoothly, and with your wit, charm and friendly manner it was an absolute pleasure.
Thank you for making everybody laugh,and for making the speech makers feel a little less nervous!
It was fun wondering what was coming next every time you put your white gloves on!
I wish you all the best for your future 'toastmastering' and will certainly recommend you to anyone in need of a toastmaster.
Hope to bump into you again some day.
We would like to say a huge Thank You to Roy who my husband Daniel and I hired for our wedding day on
13th September 2013 at Stoke Park. It was the most fantastic day due in no small part to Roy who was there looking
after us throughout. He told us when we booked him that he would oversee,time manage and generally help with anything he could to
ensure our day ran smoothly and to allow us to simply enjoy, he did this 100% and took all the stress from us
. The day went without a hitch and he even threw in a few surprises for us which was amazing! It was certainly the best money we spent
and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
We had a lot of great feedback from our guests about how well he was looking after everybody and how smart he looked.
Thank you again for all your hard work and helping to make our day everything we hoped it could be.

Toastmaster Easthampstead Park
Just a quick email from my wife and myself, to say a big thank you for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding on the
20th September 2013 at Easthampstead Park, you took control of everything from the moment you arrived which meant that
we had nothing to worry about and could concentrate on our day, knowing that everything was being taking care of.
You did an amazing job of keeping the guests amused, ensuring everyone was in the right place at the
right time and making the announcements.
We would recommend you without hesitation.
Toastmaster Winkworth Hall
Myself and Emma hired Roy to be the Toastmaster at our Wedding on the 23 August 2013. Little did we appreciate how
important he would be to making our day run so smoothly. It was late in the planning stage we thought about hiring a professional
Toastmaster,but from the outset, Roy was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We are so pleased we decided to have him with
us for our day,both sides of parents were very grateful as well.
Thank you Roy for making our day go so well and for all your amazing hard work.
We would recommend to everyone.
Toastmaster Apothecaries Hall
City of London
We hired Roy as master of ceremonies for the Sir John Crofton Fund To Fight TB
and we were not disappointed. Roy held the evening together perfectly and performed his task
brilliantly, his personable approach to guests, celebrities and speakers were a real asset .
When you book Roy you get the best Toastmaster on the circuit, with the know-how
and experience to make any event run smoothly and professionally.
I would like to say a massive thank you for your fantastic toastmaster skills. From start to finish you were there to help us out with every little
detail which made our wedding as quoted by our guests "The wedding of the year"
You were profestional and friendly and when something needed doing you got it done. It definatly was the best decision I made hiring you
for my big day as it allowed me to relax and let you take care of everything else.
Thank you for all your hard work you really did help make my dream wedding a reality.
Michelle and Myles
I would like to say a big thank you to our toastmaster, Roy. He did a fantastic job for us and ensured our big day ran smoothly and on time.
From initially meeting Roy to him saying goodbye to us late in the evening of our wedding I can thoroughly recommend his service. It was
definitely a well spent part of our budget and would say to anyone thinking about whether or not they need a toastmaster, it’s a must!
Roy ensured that every part of the day went perfect for us and made it as stress free as it could have been. He also included some lovely extra touches
and had some great ideas for the day.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the Toastmaster for our wedding at Lillibrooke Manor on 21st June 2013.
We had the most amazing day and you played a huge part in that - ensuring the entire day ran smoothly, was on time and all the details were taken care of.
From our initial chat to meeting up the week before the wedding to the day itself – you really made us feel completely relaxed and confident
that you had everything in hand.
On the day itself, the service you provided was priceless – as a bride you worry about everything coming together, suppliers turning up and the day
going perfectly and in hiring you, you ensured that neither my new husband or I had anything to worry about so that
we could just relax and enjoy the day.
We have received a lot of compliments from guests on what a great job you did and how professional, friendly and approachable you were.
Finally I just want to say thank you again for being a part of our day – we really cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and
dedication on the day and we would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples who are thinking of hiring a toastmaster for their big day.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the Toastmaster for our wedding at Easthampstead Park
We had a fantastic day and the part you played in ensuring everything ran so smoothly was invaluable.
We really appreciated the time you spent meeting us before the wedding to run through everything and your professionalism and
warmth on the day enabled everyone to completely relax and just enjoy the day. Your good humour added to the fun of the
day and many of our guests commented on what a great time they had. You did a tremendous job of keeping the proceedings running on time,
which you managed to do in a relaxed and friendly way, which we really appreciated.
Thank you again for everything you did to help give us a wedding day to truly remember. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to
others considering a Toastmaster for their big day.
A big thank you to Roy for making our day go very smoothly and allowing us to actually enjoy it!
If anyone is considering using Roy for their wedding, do it!! All the guests commented on how great he was, and how
everything ran to schedule. He even made sure we could both enjoy the wonderful canapes and bellinis Stoke Place
made for us!Well worth it!
Dr Eric Gunasekera
Toastmaster Easthampstead Park
Thought I'd forward something for your website if you want too use it......
"Well, I never knew what a toastmaster was or what they did or how important they are to a wedding day until I met
Roy Austin. He was a great help, kept everything running smoothly, kept the guests entertained and more important
kept me and my husband to be at ease. He is a true gentleman and a great addition to any wedding. Someone I would
recommend to any future bride and husband. Thanks alot roy for making our day so special, you were amazing and
someone we could approach at any time. Thanks again"
Many thanks for all your hard work at Rosalyn and Dereks wedding on Sunday.We did appreciate your advice and suggestions,
which kept things moving along so smoothly. We had a great time and our friends and family all really enjoyed the day.
Geoff and I will make a return visit to the winery!
Once again many thanks-
Geoff and Heather (Rosalyn's Parents)
'Every wedding should have one ' - Roy you were fantastic and did a wonderful job - took all worry away and had everything
under control. Everything ran like clockwork, which was all down to your professionalism. We all had a wonderful day, Danielle
and Shane keep telling me what an Amazing day they had. Many thanks Roy you were a star.
Gill and Keiran Perry.
Would be only to pleased to speak to any of your prospective clients if need be - Thanks again.
Toastmaster Crouchers Hotel,
Just to say thankyou so much for making our son's wedding day such a wonderful occasion. as you know this is the second family
wedding you have been a toastmaster for us, your warm friendly and professional manner and great sense of fun took the pressure
away and made the day more relaxed and flow in a timely manner. we are only sorry that we do not have anymore children for you
to come and do it again
Thank you for making sure I didn't get too wet on such a gloriously rainy day and ensuring everything went so smoothly on our
wedding day- It was a great relief to know you had everything in hand and we had an awesome day!
I am writing to say that although the day was wet we all had a great time. A lot of that had to do with the the fact that you made the
day so easy. Thank you for all your organisation and talent. I have to say the Firemans Wife poem was wonderful.
Good luck to you and your wife for the future.
Mrs Elaine Cugnoni ( Mother of the Bride )
I just wanted to say thank you SO much for all your great work on 11th June! Thank you for making sure everything run smoothly
and was stress-free and for adding that extra special element to the big day. Everyone told me how fantastic you were, you definitely
exceeded our expectations. Thank you, also, for encouraging me (the bride) to say a few words, I'm not usually one for doing this as
I get VERY nervous when doing speeches, but I am definitely glad I did say something so thank you.
I would definitely recommend anyone considering booking you to do so! The day just wouldn't have been the same without you, you
made sure everyone was having the best time they could and I just can't put into words just how special you made it, with the extra
touches to make it perfect, we couldn't have asked for a better time!
We would highly recommend Roy Austin to officiate on your wedding day. He completely removed the stress of running the day, and
organised everyone for us. This left us to relax and enjoy our special day. He made sure that as the Bride and Groom, we fitted in some
time alone walking through the grounds of our venue which was much appreciated.
Roy is extremely professional and will add a touch of class to your day. He was more than happy to accomodate any special requirements
or personal touches that we had, and also came up with some fantastic ideas of his own due to his wealth of experience in the role. He even
encouraged me as the Bride to say a few words during the speeches, which on reflection, I would have regretted had I not done so.
Thank you very much Roy for being part of our special day.
Glenn and Patricia Ellis
Just a short note to say a very big and heartfelt thanks for being with us at our Wedding on March 25th. The day would not have
been the same without your humour,organisation and support. We valued it hugely and many of our guests commented on what
a difference you made.
Thank you again
Nikki & David
Just off to Scotland but wanted to say again the biggest thankyou for helping to make our day perfect. Couldn't have managed
it without your help. Everybody kept commenting how great you were. If I can ever return the favour dont hesitate to contact us.
I know Dans & Lauren have e-mailed you, but I just wanted to thank you so much for your huge contribution in making the day just perfect…..
many of the guests remarked what a lovely man you are, and how easily you fitted in with everybody. Dans & Lauren were overwhelmed with
your kindness & thoughtfulness. You seemed like a really good friend to them. I would recommend you personally to anybody……Dans has
admitted that you were absolutely invaluable….your presence was so vital for the smooth running of the day. I thank you from the bottom of
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help on our amazing day. The day was so perfect and all your advice and help made everything
run smoother than we could ever have imagined.Thank you also for the special attention you paid to Claire through-out the day, I know she really
appreciated it, as did me & Lauren. You really was an absolute joy to have there, and it really felt like you were one of the guests.
All the little touches were very unexpected, especially the coin and the cork, such a lovely thought Roy! Also the idea with the champagne bottle
and the name cards, again a great idea that went down really well, we both look forward to reading them in 12 months time!
The other amazing idea was to auction the flowers on the table, at the end of the day we had raised £500, which is unbelievable!!! We split the money
between the Royal Marsden and Cancer Research, which they were extremely grateful for and wrote us a letter of thanks, so thank you for such a great idea, again!
I have also spoke to James and he is going to email you, as I know he was really happy to have you around on the day, and would like to show his thanks.
Again Roy, thank you so much for all your help, you was so professional throughout the day, and we really couldn't recommend you highly enough to all our friends.
In fact I've already given your number out to a prospective client, so I hope something comes of that for you. I believe it's a wedding at Parley Manor again, so you'll
know the set up, which I'm sure will help. it was a pleasure to have you there on our special day.
James and I have just arrived back off our honeymoon and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you did for us on our wedding day.
The day was perfect and ran so smoothly with all your help and advice. We can't thank you enough, throughout the day you were so professional
and yet felt like a friend we'd known for ages! I'd also like to say thank you for the care and attention you paid towards my dad I know he appreciated
all your assistance and it made the day far more relaxing for him and my mother. Again we can't thank you enough and will definitely be recommending
you to any of our friends who tie the knot in the future.
The dust has just settled and I can now reflect on the utterly professional manner that you conducted yourself as toastmaster at
our recent Ball at The Hilton Hotel in Reading.It was a pleasure to work with you, and to have your guidance throughout was invaluable.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires a toastmaster, and I look forward to working with you
again in the future.
Once again many thanks for all your help.
Thames Valley Regional Chairman
Just a quick email from Katie and I, we would like to thank you for your fantastic service you provided on our wedding day at
Brocket Hall. You were everything we expected and much much more.
The day ran so smoothly without any hiccups! we will be recommending you to anyone we know who decides to get married!
Katie and Tom Ellaway
Toastmaster at Brocket Hall
Iwould like to thank you for your attention to detail, and your excellent services provided on Saturday at Katie and Toms Wedding .
I had in the early days suggested that she should consider the services of a Master of Ceremonies, and to those ends she contacted
yourself. I must say that your professional services far exceeded my expectations on the day, and your manner in which you made
Katie and Tom feel at ease, knowing that any questions or problems would be dealt with personally by you, you really put her at ease.
You are in our eyes a credit to your Association of English Toastmasters and your profession. By the way, their first gift, with the cork
and coin was excellent, we have neither of us heard of the origins of the meaning of both, but are the wiser for it. Many of the guests
have commented how delightfull the Toastmaster was on the day.
Once again, thank you for an excellent day, you are worth your weight in gold.
We just wanted to send you a little note to say thank you so much for helping to make our Wedding day at Stoke Place so special!
The day ran so smoothly and that was down to you! You were professional and friendly and even managed to control a room
full of squaddies and police officers! We will of course recommend you to all our friends and family.
Thank you so much for doing a great job at our wedding on 24th July, you were always there when we needed you and you
ensured that the day ran like clockwork.
Thank you for persuading me to do my speech, you were right, I would have regretted it if I hadn't.
You will come highly recommended by us Roy - a true professional but with a really personal warm nature.

Toastmaster ay Saxons Barn Windsor
Good morning Roy,
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we were with your thoroughly professional performance last Saturday.
You brought the whole occasion together quite beautifully and you seemed to appear from nowhere when we needed something.
Joanna, my quite stunning daughter, could not of been happier with the way you quietly but efficiently went about your duties.
Roy you are credit to your profession and I wish you well for the future.
We wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for making our wedding day so
special on the 19th June. Having a Toastmaster really added that bit
of glamour to the day and made the day run totally smoothly. You were
so attentive to our needs and always made sure we had everything we
You did a brilliant job and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your
services to anyone looking for a Toastmaster in the future.
Thank you again for all your help. Both before the wedding day and on
the day itself. You are a true professional.
We would like to thank you for the marvelous service you provided during our Wedding Day.
On occasions throughout the day we faced some stressful situations, what with family getting lost and you
personally directing them to our venue, but you kept both of us calm and made it possible for my Grandparents
to witness our marriage, for that I am eternally grateful.You were so professional and made me feel at ease
during one of the most important days of my life.You helped my Dad and the Groomsmen, which is no easy task.
But most importantly, you made it so my new husband and I could enjoy our day and not be focused on 'who's
doing what' as our faith was in you and you did not let us down.
You are a specialist in your occupation and I advise anyone who is facing
such an important event do so with you by their side.
Thank you again
I really mean every word, you are a treasure and we can not thank you enough for being at our wedding
and helping us on our day.
Liz and I asked Roy to be our toastmaster for the "special day " and he was truly exceptional beforehand
and on the day.
Roy advised us brilliantly and offered us ideas to make our day even more special. We did this in two ways.
It was Roys idea to have a "candle of remembrance" for Liz's Dad, ( bride's father ) who had passed away
and invite two love birds in the form of two white doves which we held and released before the wedding breakfast.
Any couple that think they don't need a toastmaster then think again because everyone needs a "conductor
of the orchestra" on such a busy day, believe me! Roy was certainly in tune with everything.
Roy was tremendous in every way, he was idea giving beforehand and sensitive to our needs and commanded
a subtle but precise presence throughout the day. We had great feedback from our guests too who enjoyed his
humour and banter.
Roy you were a star in so many ways and we are both so grateful that you were our toastmaster and managed
the day and staff at Rhinefield House so brilliantly.
Thank you so much,
Liz and Mark Broomhall.
Annushka & Mark
We just wanted to say thank you so much for making sure our
day went according to plan. Your attention to detail was fantastic,
and we are really pleased you could be part of our day.
Wow-what a day
Just a little note to say a massive thank you for all your help at our wedding on
23rd August your attention to every detail, your ability to calm our nerves and just
your total control made our day run smoothly and made it extra fun for all of us as
we didnt have to worry about anything. We had the most fantastic day and we
cant thank you enough.
Erica & James
Private Venue in Cookham on Saturday
Just a quick not to say a BIG thank you for yesterday. We were all
very relaxed with you around and I'm sure your professionalism impressed
all at the venue. We had a fantastic day and it all went without a hitch.
We had a wonderful day, and your services not only made sure that
it flowed without a hitch, but meant that we did not have to worry about
a thing. We would recommend you to anycouple thinking of hiring a
Toastmaster for their wedding, and that is especially good coming from
Matt, who initially didn't think we needed a Toastmaster!
Thanks so much!
Mary-Jane & Matt
First of all I would like to say that I think involving a toastmaster in our wedding
was one of the best decisions (if not the best) we made when planning our wedding.
With the benefit of hindsight,I can see how easily our day could have lost direction and
momentum without someone with experience to underpin and guide the proceedings.
Also, I am glad we chose you in particular as our toastmaster, you brought the
perfect balance ofprofessionalism and informality, authority and friendliness to the day
and helped everyone (myself especially) feel so much more at ease than we otherwise would have.
I cannot thank you enough for being the rock that allowed us to sit back, relax and enjoy
the day knowing that everything was under control, and the gestures of the cork, the poem and
even the suggestion of a round of applause for the chef, all helped to make our day what it was.
Roy is a MUST for your big day!! What a first class toastmaster he is!!
He made our day even more special and made it run so smoothly and organised.
He covered every single detail 100% and made sure we enjoyed our big day to the full!!
I can say that when he left us on our big day he put a tear in both our eyes!!
I would recommend Roy to anyone.
Roy is the best toastmaster ever, as he kept me so calm on the day of my wedding.
I was so nervous before the day. He is as professional as he looked really smart and
made sure our wedding day ran smoothly without a hitch from beginning to end.
I would definitely trust Roy to host any event and highly recommend him.
How many people can say their wedding day went without a single hitch,
I can thanks to Roy Austin!
I had the most magical wedding day everything went perfectly, thanks to Roy.
He knew exactly what was happening at every moment of the day.
I truly don’t know how anyone could do it without him. His service is first class!
To any couple planning a wedding the most important piece of advice
I could give to you is to hire Roy Austin.
He seemed to know exactly how we wished for our day to go and
ensured that it happened.
Without a doubt the best money we spent, he was worth every penny and more.
To everyone else hired on the day I gave them printed strict instructions on what they
needed to do and when but with Roy I knew it wasn’t needed and I was so right.
He was one step ahead of everything! I can’t stress enough how vital he was to our day.
It will run like clockwork,
We hired Roy having met him at a wedding fair. We explained we wanted an informal approach
at a very formal location. Roy stated he would do what we wanted and he did. He'll be there before
anyone ensuring the set up is in order. He was on hand all day for myself as the groom for an
y little issue that arose and since the wedding every guest we have spoken too have praised his
services.This is the biggest day of your life; strongly recommend hiring
Roy to ensure everything goes perfectly.
A really big thank you to you for making our wedding special, you really made the day for
us and we are eternally grateful to you. Everybody commented on your
friendliness and professionalism and we are really glad that you were there to ensure
the smooth running of the day.
Thank you again
Thank you very much for making our wedding day so very special.
Until you arrived I was drowning in stress!
You are definitely an essential investment to any couple and absolutely
worth your weight in gold! An important asset to any wedding.
We would have been lost without you!
All the guests commented on how smoothly everything went,
thanks to your expertise and your professional yet friendly
approach to all aspects of the day. Also your air of authority kept
everyone in hand including the staff and our lively photographer!
And your sense of humour put people at ease.
The poem you wrote and read for us was a lovely
gesture and very touching,a great surprise to us all.
We will definitely be recommending you to everyone we know,
present and future and will remember you always.
Take care in the future.
Mr & Mrs Parkins
Laird & Lady of Glencairn.
If you want your day to be stress free Roy's the man for you. Professional, smart
and very well organised. Roy turned up two hours before the wedding to make sure
it was how I wanted and he kept the day so relaxed for us I didn’t have to think or
worry about anything. This man is always one step ahead of you.
Thank you Roy.
We loved Roy!
Roy Austin was amazing at out wedding! All I can say is "Book him if you can"!!!!
Organised, charming, helpful and calming!!
We couldn’t have had anyone better!
Thank you so much x x x x x
Finding Roy was the best thing we did! The way he looked after everyone
and made sure everything was perfect made our day run more smoothly
than we could have hoped for. Any nerves we had were instantly forgotten!
He also surprised us with a beautiful poem, which made the day even more special.
Our parents were worry free for the whole day, meaning they were able to enjoy
it the way they deserved to, all thanks to Roy. Roy and his help really are priceless,
we would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who wants their
wedding to really be the perfect day they dreamed of.
Thanks Roy, you made our day!
A gentleman, a professional and a top man.
Roy was an absolute legend. He made the day go so smoothly and took so much
pressure of us. He let us be able to enjoy the day even more.
Upon arriving at our wedding venue
I was very nervous and worried that things would not go to plan. Why worry?
Roy took care of everything and within 5 minutes of meeting
him he had put my mind totally to rest. We couldn''t have done it without him and
would like to say a huge thank you again. Should you need a toastmaster get
Roy Austin. He''s professional, a gentleman and a thoroughly top bloke.
Fantastic gent and a fantastic service
Had Roy not been involved in our day i do not think it would have gone like it did.... clockwork.
Kind to guests, reaassuring to us and just a brilliant bloke.
On the one day you do not have time and do not need to think about anything
other than each other his help is invaluable. If you are in any doubt as to
if you need a toast master then you should not be if you need one
I could not recommend him more.
