Jim Cattermole.

Jim is fabulous. As the owner of Ashleys Bridal Boutique I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jim to all my brides. He is 100% professional, has a great personality and is a wealth of knowledge. Jim helped me with the opening of my boutique and has kept in touch ever since. He is always available to offer help and advice and he doesn't take life too seriously which I think is a major attribute to finding a friendly toastmaster. Jane Griffith.

We hired Jim for our wedding in April 2014, right from the start he was on hand to offer advice and reassurance to not just us but our important players on the day, helping with speeches, getting bits from my room I'd forgotten, making sure we got all the photos we wanted and ensuring that my new hubby and I got some time together on our own. Totally professional but fun too. The perfect toastmaster, no hesitation in recommending him and cannot rate him highly enough. Jim you're a star. Angie & Chris Wittwer.

Jim Is the most helpful supplier you will ever book for your wedding or indeed any other event ,when you speak to him, you just know he will do all he can to make your day perfect, he is never without a smile or a kind and calming word , if you are considering a Toastmaster for any occasion Jim will do you proud x Penny & Paul White

Your a bit bloody brilliant, you are Jim Cattermole. Thea Harding

Jude Garland.

Dear Jude, Thank you so much for doing the toast for my father at his 80th birthday party after you finished a busy day at your your wedding in Canterbury. Just the fact that you traveled thirty miles after a long and hard days work, you're so very kind. Singing happy birthday was so unexpected but a fantastic gesture. Mum sends her kind regards as do I. Joyce & Lorraiane

Dear Jude,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the brilliant service you provided on our wedding day.  We really couldn't have coped without you!

The day ran seamlessly, and that was in no small part down to you.  Your presence was invaluable for the big things during the day, such as helping to deal with the last minute crisis (when our coach company let us down), making all the announcements to our guests, and ensuring everyone was always in the right place at the right time.  However all the little things, such as pinning on buttonholes, helping with ties, and having glasses of champagne waiting for us as we left the ceremony, were just as important to making the day run as well as it did.

Not only did we think you did a great job - the venue also commented on how professional you were.  We would not hesitate to recommend you for future weddings.

We have attached some photos, which we hope you find useful.

Thanks again!

Kind regards

Sarah & Derek

Dear Jude, You were fantastic. You are the best toastmaster ever, we thought you were great and so did our guests. As soon as the photos come, I promise I will send them to you. What a loverly person you are. Gerry and I were honoured to have you as our toastmaster and would most definitely recommend you in the future. You are number one. It was a pleasure getting to know you. Kindest Regards   Lisa & Gerry Barlow x

Hi Jude We just wanted to say a big thank you for your huge contribution in making our wedding day so special. We don't know how we would have managed without you. You ensured the day ran smoothly and were always on hand to guide both of us, ( even down to having the umbrella and yellow ponchos in case it rained). Your professionalism in annoucing the guests, the speeches and giving out the gifts really did add to the day. Many of our guests commented on how helpful you were in guiding them too. Photos will be forwarded once they arrive. A Big Thank You   Sandie & Ian

Kim Sheldrick

Dear Kim,

Thank you for being toastmaster at our wedding at The Red Barn, We hadn't even thought of having a toastmaster in the early stages of wedding planning, until meeting you at a wedding show, making the right decision we hired you for the day.

Looking back now we couldn't have done it without you, right from the start you were very helpful and approachable at all times, throughout the actual day you were on hand to make sure everything went to plan, not only organising the guests but ourselves as well, making everything run smoothly and relieving the pressure from us.

Highly recommended to anyone looking for a toastmaster. Even if your thinking you don't need a toastmaster, you will!

Worth every penny!

Many thanks

Adam & Lara

Dear Kim,

Thank you so much for being the toastmaster on our special day at Lyndford Hall hotel. Having a toastmaster for our wedding was something that we hadn't even heard of or considered until we met you at the wedding fair at the Corn Exchange Kings Lynn. Now we honestly do not even know how we would have got through our day without you. Not only did you go out of your way many times before the day to meet with us to organise every small detail and help with speeches but we also got to know you and you us which just added to the ease of the day.

We are especially thankful, whilst you were not only ensuring everything ran exactly as we had wished, you made over and above efforts to ensure we had chance to breath, have a drink and remain as stress free as possible throughout the day. 

We would highly recommend a toastmaster for any wedding or other function and above all would personally reccomend Kim as his service is flawless and fantastic.

Thank you so much for helping and sharing our special day with us.

We just want to thank you for your help and support, not just on the wedding day, but for the lead up to it as well, it was great having someone we could rely on if we needed anything and our day was made that little more special knowing you were there, everything run smoothly and we appreciate the part you played in this, we would gladly do it all over again if we could.

We hope you carry on the good work you are doing and you get plenty of bookings in the future and we would definitely recommend your services to anyone.

The following is from a Ladies Night which I attended at The Gog Magogg Golf Club just outside Cambridge

Dear Kim

Many thanks for your magnificent Toast Mastering on the occasion of our Ladies Night.
These events are fun and enjoyable but have an element of formal proceedings that need organising and managing whilst we all enjoy ourselves, and we should not have to worry what comes next.
Your calming style and attention to detail enabled the formal part to go well, and made those who had various speeches and toasts to relax and focus on the job in hand.

The rest of us could just enjoy the event knowing the evening was in safe hands, so we say thanks to you and well done!

Rob Parks

Our wedding day would not have been the same without you there, you helped us with absolutely everything and were right there for us without being intrusive.  You looked after us superbly and it was so reassuring to know you were there, whether it was to answer our questions, check things out for us, or get us a drink!  We literally could not have asked for more from you, we would recommend you to anyone who wants to take away some of the stress and worry from their day.  Thank you for everything.

Hope you are well and keeping busy.

Take care and best wishes,


Without Kim we simply wouldn't have had the magical day we did. His calm and knowledgeable attitude throughout the day and the months leading up to it kept us both at ease and generated even more excitement! From the first meeting where he guided us through what to expect, to the day itself where he was on hand throughout with wise words, sage council and a glass of whatever was needed! He organised the ushers and the wedding party to perfection and was always clear, polite and charming, a real hit with all the revellers! Hire this man for your own special day, you will definitely not regret it! 

He was a star !

James Lark.

“At a wedding ‘the icing on the cake‘ is usually only on the wedding cake but on Rebeccas and Dom’s Special Day it was the toastmaster, James Lark. everything ran like clockwork from the moment of arrival until ‘going home time’. Working closely with the team at The Spa Hotel his input contributed to a magical day all round. Many thanks James. ”

“Mike and I wanted to thank you for the part you played in our wedding day. Your presence made our day and it gave us peace of mind to know you were in control of the days proceedings. From our first meeting, we had every confidence that you would be able to help us achieve the day we had been working towards for the last fourteen months, and you absolutely did. Your professionalism shone through and we really cannot thank you enough for all your work, allowing us to really enjoy our day”

William Freeman.
“William conducted our woodland hand-fasting ceremony and wedding blessing, as well as acting as Toastmaster during the reception. Not only was he an absolute consummate professional, he was also a delight to have as a guest at our wedding.

William is everything a toastmaster should be; articulate, charming, funny and efficient. Plus, he also takes sensational 3D photos! We cannot recommend him enough!”
Kate and Dominic Flood
