John Oakley Professional Toastmaster


The professional Toastmaster is a traditional part of the banqueting and wedding scene and ensures that extra “touch of class” and style to complement the occasion. The formal routine for a Wedding Reception, which will apply to your own “Special Day” is as follows: Arriving at the reception venue at about the same time as the Bridal Party are entering the Church, the Toastmaster has ample time to become familiar with the layout, meet and liaise with the Banqueting Manager or Head Waiter, check seating arrangements, table plan, place cards, menus etc; . test the public address system and locate toilets, cloakrooms and telephones. In addition at this time he will discuss the position of the Receiving Line and the arrangements for the serving of Welcome Drinks to the Guests.
