Hello and welcome.
I'm Stefan, The Tall Toastmaster.

I'm here to help your event run seamlessly, and I would be privileged to be part of your day. I specialise in weddings and can use my wealth of experience to answer any queries you may have, no question is too tall or small; whether you're planning a formal or a more relaxed event.

If you like the idea of having a toastmaster for your day and would like an informal chat, please do get in touch as I'd love to hear from you.

About me.

I started out in the hotel industry 10 years ago as a Wedding Coordinator and then Conference and Banqueting Manager. Whilst running many events and weddings over the years I realised that what I really wanted was to be a professional toastmaster. The most enjoyable part of my job has always been meeting people, getting to know what they want out of their event and helping them to achieve this. I'm positively a 'people person' and I aim to make people happy. In 2012 I set up The Tall Toastmaster and in 2013 have felt very honoured to have been accepted into the Northern Guild of Toastmasters – possibly being their youngest and tallest member yet!

I enjoy meeting couples and their families planning their big day, and discovering wonderful venues.

I live in Lancashire between the hills of Saddleworth and Oldham and the City of Manchester. On the days away from my red coat you'll normally find me pedalling the trails on my mountain bike, in my wood work shed or whipping up a caramel latte in the kitchen.

The Tall Toastmaster

The role.

A toastmaster provides all the behind the scenes co-ordination on the day of your event
so that you can relax and hand all of the pressure over to us... we like it - don't worry!


On the day...

I am the calming influence on your day. I am there to look after you & your guests.

I liaise with all of your suppliers and the staff at your venue to ensure that everything ties together, runs on time and flows calmly and perfectly.

I conduct any formalities you choose to have, warmly welcoming your guests, organising the receiving line & photographs, giving clear and confident announcements & introductions to your speeches.

I ensure that everyone is in the right place at the right time and that they know the order of service, and most importantly that all are having a great time.

I provide the first port of call for any questions or unforeseen problems that can and do crop up, do not worry if this happens, with an experienced toastmaster around you'll be in safe hands.

'You ran our day like clockwork. Your attention to detail was superb.
You managed to think of everything. We valued your comments and
ideas, your service was excellent and very professional.'

Karen and Brian Aughton

'A lot of my guests have commented on how nice he was and he
took care of everything on the day, so much so that I didn't have a
care in the world and was able to relax and enjoy our wedding.'

Trip Advisor review from Clough Manor Hotel,
January 2010

'When getting married and organising every detail you are anxious,
but from start to finish he was informative and friendly putting us
at ease all the time and dealing with all our suppliers.'

Trip Advisor Review, Clough Manor Hotel,
January 2010

'A huge thank you for your total support in the planning of our
wedding and your fantastic organisation of our day. You put myself
and Matt at ease as we knew you had everything under controll.'

Kate and Matt Willis August 2009

'We appreciate the discreet and professional way in which you ensured
that all our guests were welcomed and our requests were met. We were
particularly impressed by the care and attention you gave firstly to the
preparation of the room and secondly to the afternoon and evening
proceedings, this enabled us to relax and enjoy our celebrations knowing
we could trust that everything was under control.'

John and Rita Chester, August 2009

'With all of the effort that we, as a family, had put into the
preparation it was difficult for us to hand over the reception to
someone else, but you had already installed confidence in us with
the manner in which you had guided us through the planning
meeting we had when you raised issues we had not considered.'

Nigel and Sue Spencer April 2009

'Your true professionalism shone through at all times. From our
pre-wedding meetings with you and especially on the wedding day
when you guided us all through the days protocols, making us feel at
ease through the whole ceremony, wedding meal and evenings
function. You were a perfectionist.'

Derek Boyd, father of the bride August 2007
