Below are some recent testimonials from my satisfied clients.
We hope that you are well. Sarah and I wish to express our sincere thanks for your services provided at our wedding of 06 September at Cave Castle. Your professionalism and high standards were impeccable and we had many of our guests comment on how much you brought to the day in terms of organisation. During the day you worked effortlessly with our venue and photographer to ensure that things ran smoothly and this without doubt contributed to our fantastic day. Particularly in the hospitality industry, the art of being attentive and vigilant without being intrusive is hard to master but you truly have!
It is also worth mentioning what spectacular value for money you offer – pound for pound you undoubtedly were our best value supplier for our big day and the sabrage was a huge hit with us (particularly me!) and our guests. For anyone considering a Toastmaster at a forthcoming wedding we would highly recommend it and in particular Michael Wall who has looked after us so impeccably well right from the first meeting, through to the consultation a couple of weeks before the wedding and on the big day itself.
All the best for the future.
Mr & Mrs Thomas
Michael effectively organised the running of the day, in particular with regards to assisting the photographer and managing the receiving line. Michael was friendly and approachable for the guests promoting a friendly and fun environment throughout the day.
There were two highlights of the day which Michael organised, for myself it was the atmosphere he created in the room with the guests when we arrived and as we departed the wedding breakfast, it was spectacular. For my husband James, it was the opportunity to be involved in performing the ‘Celebration of the Sabrage’ which he is still talking about today and be a favourable memory for him. In short, our wedding day would not have been the same without the professional involvement that Michael provided and we would highly recommend his service to anyone considering a master of ceremony for their wedding.
Thanks again, all our love
Mr and Mrs Harwood X
We have just returned from honeymoon and our feet still haven’t toughed down!! Small world indeed.
The reason we were interested in an MC for our wedding was guidance and support throughout the day as we would not get a rehearsal.
With regards to the actual day it was really helpful having you by our side and being able to turn to you knowing you would organise any small request allowing us to rest and enjoy the day. We also had great feedback from our photographer who found your assistance marvellous in organising the wedding guests for the photo’s. Additionally, many guests also commented how professional you and the day were.
We were really pleased we decided to use your services, you helped our day pass without any hitches and I think you worked great as a team with The Hotel Van Dyk and would definitely recommend you and your services.

Testimonial from Sophie & Peter, Mrs & Mr Lee
I would very much recommend Michael Wall, The Sheffield Toastmaster.
From our initial consultation I knew I could trust Michael to ensure our wedding ran smoothly. On the day Michael was made sure that everything went to plan, button holes were fixed, guests looked after and the wedding ran to time, even when one part was a little delayed, the groom and I were none the wiser thanks to Michael’s organisation. I was very thankful when I was brought a jacket to wear in between photos as I was starting to get very chilly on an unfortunately cool day in June. From start to finish he ensured our day went perfectly from the ceremony, to the canapés, to the speeches, to the first dance and beyond.
If I had to describe his services metaphorically, I would say he was the he would be the oil that makes it all run smoothly. All the things you don’t think about he has already considered and sorted for you. It was a pleasure having him at our day and it would not have been as enjoyable for us without him.
Mr and Mrs Lee.
Testimonial from Adam & Alison
On the day, Michael arrived on time at our wedding venue and his personable, yet formal and confident, style had everyone relaxed from the start. He helpfully arranged for corsages and button holes to be fastened to the bridal party upon arrival. His fantastic outfit was a talking point amongst the guest upon arrival and he politely ensured that our guests were shepherded into the wedding venue in plenty of time. The Mother of the Bride thought it fantastic as he escorted her from the wedding vehicles to her seat.
Throughout the day Michael ensured that the day ran smoothly, that we were in the correct place at the correct time, and that the day ran as scheduled. It was great to know that we didn’t have to concentrate on the next task in hand, ensuring that we enjoyed each moment safe in the knowledge that Michael had things under control.
Michael really proved his worth during the wedding breakfast. He introduced each of the wedding party into the room, and gave us a particularly raucous entrance into the room, getting the guests to bang their spoons on the table as we entered. It was one of our favourite moments of the day. As with most weddings, there were a few minor hiccups, which Michael was on hand to sort out quickly and discreetly.
His Sabrage gave our wedding an injection of excitement and theatre. Well recommended!
As you might have gathered, we thoroughly recommend that you consider having Michael as your Toastmaster! Yes, its yet another expense (!!) on a very expensive day but Michael proved exceptional value for money.
Testimonial from Donna & Richard the new Mr & Mrs Turner
To whom it may concern
I would like to say how fabulous our toast master Michael was at our wedding on Saturday 8th September 2012.
Michael took the hassle and stress out of the ‘what happens next scenario’ for us and ensured everyone was happy with proceedings too. He made sure the Guest Book was completed by the guests at the breakfast and presented this to us before the speeches.
I would recommend him to anyone and would like to thank him again.
Donna and Richard Turner
May I begin by saying on behalf of my wife and I and also the new Mr and Mrs Crookes a massive thank you for making our day run so smoothly. When you said during our initial meeting pre wedding that we only need to deal with you regarding any issues with the entire day I didn’t believe it. However, you dealt with all our concerns from the moment you met us at the church, attaching button holes, rounding our guests up, organising the confetti throwing, to us arriving at the hotel by presenting us with a celebratory glass and then urgently arranging the staff to seat the 2 guests unaccounted for without the usual fuss and worrying on our part. It was like having our own PA, you should call yourself a Wedding Manager not just a toast master. Oh yes and then there was the usual toast master activities how can we forget! that you delivered impeccably all evening helping the ceremony to be the success it was and your input did not go unnoticed from the comments we received from our guests.
I can honestly say you would be the first person I would recommend to anyone considering a wedding or any other social, or business gathering.
We cannot thank you enough.
|“Michael was the ultimate professional in all aspects of my wedding day both before and on the day itself. I had guests who didn’t ‘see the point’ of a Toastmaster, who commented afterwards what a great idea it was and how good Michael was in seeing to the days proceedings.
I would have no hesitation in either recommending Michael or using him again for another function. Rob Shelton.”
|Wortley Hall Wedding of Mark and Kelly, the new Mr & Mrs Herring|
Absolutely fantastic, fantastic, fantastic, could not recommend Michaels services high enough. He made our day run so smoothly, don’t know what we would have done without him.

|The Ringwood Hall, Derbyshire on 29th July.|
We firstly want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful job you did on the most special day of our lives. From helping the men with their button holes and showing my mum to her seat in church, the warm welcome you gave all our guests and the support you gave to assist our photographer was amazing!
|The Crowne Plaza Speke Liverpool on Sat 9th June 2012|
Thank you so very much for all you did for us, our family and friends on our wedding day at The Crowne Plaza Speke Liverpool on Sat 9th June 2012. Our day was just perfect, and we knew from the outset that we were in very good experienced, capable and caring hands.
Everybody commented on how professional, organised and how helpful you were and both myself and Dermot appreciate everything you did.
It was a pleasure to meet you, and we would not hesitate to recommend your services to all.
Thank you so much Michael.
Our very best wishes
Gayle & Dermot (Mr & Mrs Mythen.)
|SHOTTLE HALL WEDDING MASTER OF CEREMONIES – 24th of JUNE 2012|
On the day Michael arrived early to check the venue was perfect for us and helped the hopeless groomsmen with their button holes. Michael was ready to greet me and my bridesmaids when we arrived and brought order to how we descended down the aisle. Throughout the day Michael was never far away from us asking if he could assist in anyway and helping with the photos. Our timings ran perfectly which ensured everything we had planned happened…Hiring a toastmaster may seem like an unnecessary cost but I would say it was the best value for money that we spent on our wedding.

|The wedding of Sue and Phil, the new Mr & Mrs Lewis 28th of April, Ringwood Hall, Derbyshire|
Thank you again for the brilliant day you gave our daughter at her and Phil’s wedding, I’m still reeling over that entrance. Eric and I were saying this morning we have never seen a couple brought into a wedding room with such madness, noise, chaos and great fun. If nothing else it was worth having you with us just for that, but as we all know that the entrance and their equally fantastic exit from the room were just small pieces in a totally beautiful day, I cried with joy when I got home.
From start to finish you were magnificent and with all the many little touches we would never have thought of. Everybody, family and friends kept asking about you and where we got you from. It added so much class to our day but also injected into the day so much fun. Thank you so much. Please don’t hesitate to pass on our comments and details to any other family looking for an outstanding toastmaster.
Sue and Phil are off on their honeymoon now but asked me to send you the photo with them as soon as I can, when we get it I will email it over.
Thank you so much
|24th of September – The Royal Box – Doncaster Racecourse|
“As I reflect on 2011 – a great year – I realise that there is one loose end left to tie up ! And that is to say thank you to yourself for doing such an absolutely outstanding job at our Wedding on the 24th September at the Doncaster Racecourse.
Over the years I have made many an investment and backed many a winner there – but none as good as having you as our toastmaster!
From the moment we met at the Racecourse the week before the wedding – you put me at ease and took the pressure off. On the day you were awesome – attentive in control – you dealt with anything that needed it – and maintained complete fluidity of the day.
Thank you very much – we wish you well in 2012.
Matt and Vanessa Hodgkiss
“Further to my son Matthews comments about the exceptional service you gave to VANESSA and MATT On their Wedding at Doncaster Racecourse in September last year.

|Wedding of Carolyn and Andrew Hails – Lumley Castle, Chester le–street , Durham|
To whom it may concern…
“Michael made our Wedding Day that extra bit special, by simply being there and taking great care of our guests. His attention to detail, impeccable manners and professional etiquette, gave our day the polish and refinement that we had been looking for.
Michael is a very gentle and caring man and would be a delight at any formal celebration or occasion. We couldn’t recommend more highly.”
|Wedding of Ginette Wilding to Mrs Anthony Clarke – Osmaston Park May 15th|
Anthony and I would like to say a really big “Thank You” for all your help in making our big day at Osmaston Park run so smoothly. Michael added such class to our wedding reception and the day would have been much poorer and less stylish without his presence.
Michael was everything that he promised and more; a true gentleman, an experienced professional and thoroughly personable individual.
Michael brought character and class to our event and in the build up to the wedding, was an invaluable asset to us both.
From our first correspondence, we found Michael an absolute pleasure to work with, and to this day, his presence at the wedding has been commented on many times. We are sure Michael will continue from strength to strength, but wish him all the success and appreciation that he truly deserves.

Hope you are well. On behalf of my husband and myself.We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your excellent and professional services as Toastmaster at our daughter’s wedding at Hassop Hall on the 30th April 2011.
You made everything run smoothly, and nothing was too much trouble for you.
On the two occasions in which we met prior to the wedding, I found you to be extremely polite with a very professional attitude.
I would definitely, without any hesitation recommend you to anyone looking for a Toastmaster.
When our next daughter gets married I will certainly look you up, although that is something for the distant future as she is only seventeen.
With Kindest Regards

|The wedding of Marcia and Malcolm at Hathersage, 19th of June 2010|
Where to begin, all I know is that Malcolm and I would never have got through the wedding without you, a couple of months ago before the special day we suddenly realised that the best man cannot do everything and he can’t be in all places at once.
That’s when we realised we needed you.
Michael, all I can say is you made our wedding the best day of our lives, and we received many compliments on your behalf.
Thank you very much.
Marcia and Malcolm.
