Without Steve, our special day would have been a whole lot less special. Honestly we weren't going to request his help initially and the sabrage and his experience swung it for us in the end.
When the day itself came though, both of us were so thankful Steve was there with us. Nothing is a problem when he's there, he adds a level of calm and friendly professionalism that meant we could just focus on enjoying ourselves. On a wedding day that's all that matters, nobody knows it better than Steve.
Thank you again
Holly and Jon, Horsley Estate.
Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did on Saturday of marrying us on Zoom. You obviously spent time planning and working out exactly how to make things work with the wonderful ceremony.
We had a fantastic time and felt safe in your hands. The way you were able to jump in at a moments notice without hesitation to smooth over any technical glitches was nothing short of heroic. ("3..2..1..you're on..!)
You helped make our day so memorable and in the screenshots we have seen you look resplendent in your red tailcoat. We feel blessed to have met you and can hardly believe that we were actually lucky enough to have you officiating.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything last Saturday. It was a massive help having you there and you also made it a lot of fun!
Many people said how great you were and you made our day flow so easily ensuring we could relax and enjoy the day...which we certainly did! Thank you again and now we are enjoying some Antiguan sun!

We didn’t know what to expect from having a toastmaster but we are so glad that we did and that it was Stephen! He was phenomenal and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone considering having a toastmaster at their wedding. He was fundamental to the flawless flow of the day! We both agreed that having Stephen made our day even better than we ever dreamt possible! Thank you so so so much!
Jessica, Horsley Towers
Sorry its taken so long to say a HUGE Thank You to you for being an amazing Celebrant and Toastmaster for our very special day. The service was perfect and your humour and warmth was exactly what we wanted. So many people commented on how great you were, you were a real hit with our guests and of course, with us. Thank you also for saving the day with your St Georges Cross cuff links, very fitting. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone, you're a true delight. Thanks again.

I just wanted to take a moment out and thank you for being so wonderful yesterday. Without a doubt, the day would certainly have not of been as smooth without you, and you are handsdown the best MC I have worked with. It was a sincere pleasure working with you.

Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. You really did make our day perfect! We are very much indebted to you for helping our day run so smoothly and with your consideration to making sure we stepped back and appreciated parts of the day that we may not have otherwise. We would like to give further thanks for your conscientiousness in going well above and beyond what we had even hoped at the best of times.We would also not hesitate to recommend you wholeheartedly to anyone who might need an MC...

Lisa and I would gladly give Steve six or seven stars if we could! Steve's conduct of our ceremony and the following celebration was truly… MASTERFUL! He made us feel like a true Lord and Lady throughout the day. Our big day definitely would not have been the same without him. He's given a unique class touch to the whole celebration.

Thank you for all your help last night with the Mayor’s Civic Reception and for your part in making it a great success. The Mayor was delighted with everything and all the guests I spoke to commented on the lovely atmosphere and venue and all had a good time. As always, working with you is a pleasure and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for all that you did on Saturday, which meant the wedding not only ran smoothly, but was good fun - we heard many compliments! We were able to completely relax knowing everything was in hand and it was especially kind of you to stay later than you would usually have done. Thanks again and perhaps our paths will cross again at another wedding in the future.

We wanted to write you a quick note to say a BIG thank you for everything you did on our wedding day. You were such a fantastic toastmaster and we really appreciated having someone to help us make the day run smoothly. The cork with the shilling ( it was a half crown - Steve) is on our side board and a really lovely memento from the day. You really added so much to the day for us - thank you SO much.

'A brief note to say thank you once again for taking charge of James and Laura's Wedding Reception. Everything was simply perfect and, as you promised, I was able to relax the moment we arrived at Great Fosters; the first time in weeks! Your calm and efficient management of every aspect of the proceedings was simply magnificent and I have had a number of guests commenting on your professionalism, authority, courtesy and good humour; many agreeing that you are the very best that we have ever seen! Thank you from us all.'

'We are writing this email from our honeymoon in the Alps, the sun is shining and we are still buzzing from Friday... We couldn't wait to get back from our honeymoon to write to you because words can't describe how grateful we are. From the first time we met you at the Horsley "open day" we warmed to you straight away, you have this aura about you Steve which not many people have. When Kat told us you were free we couldn't believe our luck and were so chuffed that you were going to be our toastmaster, and on Friday you certainly didn't disappoint. You were AMAZING, and total took charge of the day! ALL of our friends and family commented on you, we felt so relaxed and happy with any decision you made. The weather was so hit and miss and your idea of having the food set up in the other room was PERFECT. When the speeches were going on, I felt bad that our evening guests were waiting in the bar (typical me worrying about other people) and when I chose to tell you to leave my speech out I was gutted . So, when you made the announcement about my decision NOT to speak I was soooooooooooooooooooooooo happy because I was able to express my gratitude to everyone that had helped us out on our day and of course tell the world how happy I was that I was now married to the man of my dreams. I know without a doubt I would have regretted not speaking if you hadn't of stepped in so for that I am TRULY grateful. I also loved the little touch with the silver coin which I will treasure forever. You are a true gentleman Steve, and we can't thank you enough.Thank you for making it so special.'

'We just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for making our special day run so smoothly. Everything went according to plan and that was all down you (and Kat!). I must admit that before we met you I always thought that Toastmasters were employed to spoil the fun.... how wrong was I !!!! You made us feel so confident and relaxed which is such a relief on such a high pressure day. Jamie especially appreciated your support throughout the entire day.'

' Rob and I want to thank you for your services on what turned out to be our best day ever. We had a beautiful day with friends and family and having you as our toastmaster made it even more easy and special for us. Our guests commentated on how professional and friendly you were and how you made it all so enjoyable. Steve I know its your job, but I must say that we picked you as we felt so comfortable with you and we knew you understood exactly what kind of day we wanted. You made it all so easy for us, and so happy you could be apart of it all.'
