Stoke Park 9th June 2019

Roy gave us a superior service at our recent wedding at Stoke Park. His experience, confidence and calm manor at which he communicates put us and our families and friends at ease throughout the day. He was able to support my father with his speech and provide some tips and advice, he was also able to very calmly steer us through the day through preparing us in advance of what was going to happen next – a true professional!

Having a confident and experienced guiding hand supporting us through the day, along with managing back of house operations, essentially enabled my Husband and I to be able to enjoy the day!
Thank you Roy.




Farnham Castle 24th May 2019

Our wedding day at Farnham Castle was made all the more memorable due to the fantastic individuals that helped the day run smoothly – Roy was an integral part of this.

Roy’s charismatic nature is just what you need in a toastmaster – someone that can have fun with the guests before turning on the style in delivering instructions and introductions for your wedding guests. The feedback from our guests was extremely positive and they all loved seeing Roy in his attire and having someone at the helm who could help out when necessary. We couldn’t recommend booking Roy enough for your wedding day. Thank you Roy!



Trunkwell House 6th April 2019

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of Roy’s help at our charity fundraiser this weekend.
Roy so kindly contacted me to generously offer his services as toastmaster and auctioneer for a charity ball and auction I was hosting and from that moment he had been nothing but helpful. Roy provided suggestions through the planning of the night and also throughout the event to make sure the night was a success for us.
A crucial part of his role was not just to welcome guests and host the event but to ensure the night ran on time and that was something he ensured happened; even down to reminding me to get myself ready before guests arrived! Roy maintained professionalism throughout the event, even when challenged at times by demanding situations and guests. Roy’s presence allowed me to take some time to enjoy the night myself; knowing that he had control of what was planned and was keeping an eye on schedule for me and so discreetly having a word in my ear for little reminders when needed.
A massive thanks to Roy, you really were such a big help this weekend and really did take a load from me; helping to ensure the night ran smoothly and our guests had a great night. I hope to work with you again in the future.
Kindest regards

Stoke Park 23rd March 2019

Dear Roy

Just a very quick note of thanks for the sterling work you provided to Alan and Ruth on Saturday. As you know by experience wedding days have a tendency to stretch the clock which can become a real issue at times. Your decisive behind-the-scenes running of the day not only kept the day on track but your help, assistance and advice was very much appreciated.
The attached photo may not be the most flattering of you but I feel it shows a quiet air of authority and calm.
I wish you well for the future and will always be more than delighted to recommend your services to any future couples.
Kind regards

Gate Street Barn 14th Oct 2018 

Now that the dust has settled from our wedding and we’ve a chance to leave a review we really wanted to say how amazing Roy was in bringing our special day to life.

Roy was very professional and easy to work with ahead of our day. He had lots of great suggestions of additional details and ideas that would make our day work even better than we’d originally thought.

On the day itself Roy looked after the co-ordination and schedule bringing each element in on time. As things changed and altered on the day, Roy just took them all in his stride.

Roy was so attentive and patient with us both making sure at every turn we were able to enjoy the day.

We can’t thank him enough.

Stoke Park 3rd June 2018


We had our unforgettable wedding day at Stoke Park this summer – I would say Roy was the most important man who helped made our day smooth and perfect. His amazing style, wonderful presence and words gave so much style and sophistication to our most important day. And we are truly grateful for him being part of the day.Apart from being super professional, Roy is extremely warm and generous and has an adorable character with great sense of humour 🙂 From the very first time we met, Roy gave me assurance at the coordination meeting that “I need not to worry a thing!” which turned out to be true.On the day, Roy looked after me and the guests so well and organised the day perfectly working with Stoke Park’s in house team:
  • He arrived early before all the suppliers and coordinated with all the staff and key personnel
  • He gave timely prompts and reminders to me and the guests, and everything ran to schedule by the minute!
  • He made decisions decisively and quickly when small changes are needed
  • Roy learned the names of the key guests well by heart and made my loved ones feel really special too
  • He spoke beautifully when he introduced the speeches and guest performers – I just loved his words!
  • He worked with my suppliers well including our musicians, photographer and celebrant
  • He supported my husband and dad in delivering their speech and gave really helpful advice
  • His outfits were so stylish!
Take a look at his website and you will understand why – Roy has plenty of experience running high profile events around the world, weddings and more.
All in all, Roy is a true master that would make you and your loved ones feel most special on your most important day. I can not recommend him more!!!
Thank you Roy!

Oshwal Centre 25th May 2018

Dear Roy
We owe you a huge thank you; you made our daughter Reshmas’ Hindu wedding ceremony at the Oshwal Centre day perfect. Many of our guests and suppliers commented on how wonderful you were, and how you had taken the time out to talk to everyone. You managed the event very well and dealt with any problems with no fuss and most importantly due to your expert handling and amazing skills we had nothing to worry or think about and therefore we only had to sit back and enjoy our day, which we did. The wedding day was totally relaxed, ran to time as planned and incredibly organised and we owe a big thanks to you for this. You managed our suppliers well  within  the time constraints .We can’t say enough how much we appreciate everything you did … we couldn’t recommend you enough to anyone and will happily be available for any testimonial, be it via phone or on your website. You are truly a master of your craft. Thank you!”
We now look forward to seeing you in action again at the civil wedding of Reshma and James in July!

Farnham Castle 9th April 2018

We had the pleasure of first meeting Roy at my friends wedding. I loved how the whole day flowed. There wasn’t a question he couldn’t answer and nothing was a problem. The guests were kept informed and he ensured everyone was where they needed to be. We were both delighted and in awe with how Roy commanded the attention and respect of the room. Naturally, we wanted Roy for our special day! despite Farnham Castle being a new venue to Roy, no one would know! He worked expertly as a member of the venue team and managed EVERYONE superbly. As a result our day was a delight from start to finish. He checked in with us regularly which was lovely and all the things we had specifically wanted (for example time alone) was made to happen. Even when other suppliers were ‘taking their time’, Roy was super at managing their time and keeping them on the straight and narrow. I cannot thank Roy enough and would highly recommend him to anyone who has any event with an itinerary.

We really cannot thank you enough.

“Roy was the perfect toastmaster for our wedding!

Roy was recommended to us and we can understand why. He took the time to meet us before the big day and really get to know us as individuals, to understand what we wanted from the day, what we were worried about and all those little details that were important to us.

On the day itself Roy was everything we wanted from a toastmaster and more! He brought a sense of calm, fun and professionalism to the role and certainly helped us enjoy our big day!

Stoke Park 27.08.2017

We had the honour and pleasure of Roy Austin’s services at my daughter\’s recent wedding at the splendid Stoke Park. Having not met Roy prior to the day of the wedding itself I was so impressed at how warm and friendly he was towards not just myself but also to the mother of the bride and indeed to the bride and groom themselves. His obvious experience showed in his recognition of how stressful these big occasions can be for the hosts and those in the spotlight. Having someone whose assistance, advice and guidance was offered with such reassurance was so helpful and a relief to us all. His rather splendid satorial attire was befitting of such a stunning venue, and the manner in which he kept everything running to schedule, which was quite a fete for such a large number, was quite incredible. His specific advice to those of us who had to make the wedding speeches was particularly helpful, showing, as he did, an understanding of the issues one might encounter during what is, or can be, quite a nerve racking experience. I was using notes which would require the turning over of pages so he very quickly procured a microphone stand so I would be hands free. On top of this, recognizing that not everyone knows how to use a microphone correctly, he arranged for clip on microphone as a precaution so that not a single word would be missed or be inaudible. The value of this kind of experience is priceless at the time, and in my experience is very rare in today’s world. Suffice it to say that I was delighted with how the whole event went on the day and I have to say that this was in no small part down to Roy, his consummate professionalism combined with his caring and warm personality really made a difference. He is to be highly recommended as ours would have been a lesser event had we been without his services.

Myself and Pawan would like to say a massive thank you to Roy for doing an excellence job at our wedding . We had meeting & were exchanging through emails prior and he made me feel at ease and I felt we were in good hands. He was very professional, efficient and made sure our busy schedule ran smoothly.

Thank you again! We would recommend Roy, especially for big weddings like ours , with over 300 guests

Love Sumina and Pawan Bhandari


I would recommend Roy to anyone, he was a fantastic toastmaster who put all his energy into the day, ensuring that it ran smoothly and any mishaps were dealt with. We were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing everything was taken care of as well as being informed when necessary.

The wedding day was a busy and long one starting with a Civil Ceremony in the morning, a Hindu ceremony in the afternoon and an evening reception. Roy was at the venue early to ensure that everything was set up and was there until the cake cutting in the evening. We had a strict time schedule and there was lots activities and shuffling of guests, but Roy kept everyone informed with his announcements and really bonded with the guests.

We had a meeting with Roy a few weeks before the wedding to run through the itinerary and get to know him before the big day. This really helped with the planning of the day and our expectations.

Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!

Best wishes,

Harsha and Paul

I truly realised the importance of having Roy at my Daughters wedding ,especially after attending a wedding where there wasn’t a toastmaster we appreciated everything he did,that goes without saying but any slight changes in people numbers or queries and he was there informing the guests where ever possible. He kept guests and times on track and anything else that needed taking care of and his mannerism is perfect!Not once did I have to worry about a single thing as I had every confidence in him and that it would get sorted and it did,having a toastmaster is truly the best decision and I would recommend Roy to anyone.

As I get back to some normality after the wedding I have been reflecting on the Big Day and would like to say a “Special Thank-you” to you for your organisation and contribution to this day. I could see that your focus was to ensure that Huma & Arfan had that special day to remember and enjoy each moment. I commend your professionalism and the way that you had a continual overview of all events and happenings, stepping in when needed.

Plus you even calmed me down! (an added bonus).

Thank you so very much for playing such a wonderful part in our magical wedding day at
Ufton Court on 6th December 2013.

From start to finish you worked hard to understand every little detail in how we wanted our day to run. Perfect execution on the day, making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time, making sure everything was just how we wanted it and crucially, that timings we kept on track.

We just don’t know how we could have done it without you! You allowed us just to enjoy our very special day, safe in the knowledge that you were taking care of everything.

You are so professional, fun and friendly – a real pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to all our friends and family.

Thank you so much and all the very best for the future.

A huge thanks to Roy for helping to make our big day everything we wanted and more. When we hired Roy to be our Toastmaster he promised us that he would manage all of the suppliers, make sure timings were stuck too and keep the day on track doing everything he could to make the day the best of our lives. All I can say is that he delivered and more- all we had to think about was enjoying ourselves and capturing the moment.

For those of you out there wondering whether to have a Toastmaster or not just DO IT.

A huge thank you to you and everyone at Stoke Park that made our wedding so special this weekend.
Everything went so smoothly, it was perfect.

Easthampstead Park

I would like to say a big thank you to our toastmaster, Roy. He did a fantastic job for us and ensured our big day ran smoothly and on time. From initially meeting Roy to him saying goodbye to us late in the evening of our wedding I can thoroughly recommend his service. It was definitely a well spent part of our budget and would say to anyone thinking about whether or not they need a toastmaster, it’s a must! Roy ensured that every part of the day went perfect for us and made it as stress free as it could have been. He also included some lovely extra touches and had some great ideas for the day.

Thanks again Roy and all the best for the future

Hi Roy

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the Toastmaster for our wedding at Lillibrooke Manor on 21st June 2013. We had the most amazing day and you played a huge part in that – ensuring the entire day ran smoothly, was on time and all the details were taken care of. From our initial chat to meeting up the week before the wedding to the day itself – you really made us feel completely relaxed and confident that you had everything in hand. On the day itself, the service you provided was priceless – as a bride you worry about everything coming together, suppliers turning up and the day going perfectly and in hiring you, you ensured that neither my new husband or I had anything to worry about so that we could just relax and enjoy the day. We have received a lot of compliments from guests on what a great job you did and how professional, friendly and approachable you were.

Finally I just want to say thank you again for being a part of our day – we really cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication on the day and we would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples who are thinking of hiring a toastmaster for their big day.

Kind regards

Hi Roy,

Thank you so much for making our big day so special. You were absolutely brilliant!  You brought order where there was chaos and laughter where there was… you just brought lots of laughter! All the guests loved you. Tom and I are very grateful for all your support. Thanks for looking after us especially when the nerves of the day kicked in before the ceremony! I know I was skeptical about the red tuxedo at first but it did bring class and style to the event. Overall our wedding was like a fairy tale but it would not have been the same without you! Many thanks once again and we will certainly recommend you to all our friends!

Roy was toastmaster at our wedding at Stoke Park on Friday 25th July. Roy was as good as his word and in total control of events on the day and the key organisational focal point. Roy has a particularly good knowledge of Stoke Park and has clearly developed a close working relationship with the staff making him a must for a Stoke Park wedding! We would unhesitatingly recommend his professional services as a toastmaster.

Dear Roy

Thank you so much for making our Summer Gala Evening in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity – Michelle King Fund such an amazing success. Right from the initial contact you had with Mel and myself you have given us the confidence to do all the things that made the evening. With you as Master of Ceremonies guiding us through the bits we didn’t know how to do meant that the evening was thoroughly professional in every way.  Your meticulous attention to detail and steady reassurance that ‘it would be alright on the night’ meant that the evening went without a hitch and Mel and I were able to, as you quite rightly said, relax and enjoy our evening.  Everyone I have spoken to has said how much they enjoyed the evening and as you know we raised over £4,000 for the charity.
I have no hesitation in recommending your services and will be passing on your details to The Brain Tumour Charity for anyone else who might be organising a similar event.
Once again thank you very much
Best wishes

A big thank-you for your assistance in making our wedding as smooth running as possible.Our day couldn’t have gone any better and we literally, didn’t have to worry about anything thanks to you and all the staff at Stoke Park.

Your experience and professionalism were there for all to see and we were relaxed enough to enjoy all what was going on around us.We have had many comments from our guests on our touch and your words around the memory candle and it brought a few tears from those closely concerned but they were delighted with the mention.

Once again, many thanks.

Hi Roy,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for Saturday, you made everything go smoothly for us. To be honest we were not sure if we wanted a toastmaster but so glad I took the plunge because without you it would not have gone so well.

We just wanted to thank you very much for being the Toastmaster at our daughter’s wedding last week. You made all the difference to the day running very smoothly; right from meeting with you to plan the day in advance, your advice was extremely helpful. It was only on the day when we realised how much you worked as a link with the hotel staff and photographers behind the scenes to get everything and everybody, organised and in the right place at the right time. Your professionalism was very evident and we can recommend your services without hesitation.

The Big Wedding 22 March 2014

What can I say, a day that you really need to go well with all the worries in the world on your shoulders but not when you have Roy in control. From before the wedding with some great preparation work finding out what my Daughter and son in Law needed and on the day making sure all went to plan. You never know on these important days how things should go and this is why I would recommend a Toast Master especially Roy. It was not just introducing the event and speakers he look after firstly the Bride & Groom and spent time looking after some of the Grand Parents who were frail. Roy made the day pressure free for all of us and I would really recommend him due to is outstanding organisation of the day. Roy once again thank you on behalf of both the McCarthy and Butler families.

Robin McCarthy
Myself and Emma hired Roy to be the Toastmaster at our Wedding on the 23 August 2013. Little did we appreciate how important he would be to making our day run so smoothly. It was late in the planning stage we thought about hiring a professional Toastmaster, but from the outset, Roy was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We are so pleased we decided to have him with us for our day, both sides of parents were very grateful as well.
Thank you Roy for making our day go so well and for all your amazing hard work.
We would recommend to everyone.
