Daniel & Hayley

Wedding 27th April 2024 at The Orangery Maidstone


Myself and my now new wife, Hayley decided to use Trevor as our Toastmaster at The Orangery on the 12th April 2024. I can safely say it was one of the best decisions we made and we are so grateful and lucky to have found Trevor. From the initial introduction meetings all the way through to the wedding and then the day itself we couldnt ask for more. Trevor was polite, charming, full of character and smiling through the whole day, he organised everyone perfectly and made the announcements superbly. Even helped me with my speech with his tips sheet 😊. The day would not have been the same without Trevor, so we thank him personally and highly recommend anyone else looking for a Toastmaster to use his services, you will not regret it. Daniel

Trevor the Toastmaster at Howfield Manor Hotel 03/02/2023


Wedding days are so magical to begin with, having Trevor with us took it to an extra level. All our worries about the day flew away knowing we had our toastmaster there. Trevor was professional, kind and passionate with charm. Everyone complimented how amazing Trevor was, and how fabulous it was to have him there. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for everything.

Dennis and Amy Ivory August 2022


We hired Trevor as toastmaster for our wedding, and we could not be happier with our decision, Trevor helped make the day flow by so effortlessly, always there to direct us where we needed to be but always allowed us the control, it stopped my wife and I having to think or worry about what was happening next or how long we had left to take photographs for example. If you are thinking about having Trevor as your toastmaster at your wedding but are unsure, just do it, I promise you that you will not regret it, and it will add so much to your day as well as giving you fewer things to worry about on the day, allowing you to relax more and soak in the big day.

Mr & Mrs Pattenden September 2022


It was a pleasure to have you along to our special day and we thank you for helping our day go so smoothly. Family and friends were all very complimentary of yourself, as are we. Donna and Paul x

"CERTAINLY WORTH THE INVESTMENT" commented Meg & Daniel - April 2019

the Fee image
Trevor Smith is a Professional Toastmaster offering services for all types of occasions. He has years of experience in planning, coordinating and hosting events of all sizes. Trevor is here to help make your event a truly wonderful occasion.  He will provide the highest level of service to make sure everything meets your expectations.
The fee to engage Trevor depends on the type of function, the distance from his home and the expected duration of the event.
He will be only too pleased to provide an immediate quotation for any specific event on request.

For you peace of mind Public Liability Insurance is provided via a group policy held by The Guild of Professional Toastmasters




Covid virus -What happens if my chosen date has to be changed.

Many of you who have made plans for a Wedding, this being the most exciting time of your lives are without doubt still concerned that a date change by the venue could take place.
Any future date change to your Wedding or other type of function will be accommodated even moving to a later year. Trevor will do his upmost to provide service personally on your new date. However in the event of circumstances preventing him from doing so, you have the assurance of knowing the Guild of Professional Toastmasters will be able to supply one of it's Fellows to ensure your Day is managed perfectly.

Where can we meet to discuss our requirements

Traditionally a Toastmaster will attend a number of Wedding exhibitions and Fayres throughout the year. Trevor has always supported Wedding Fayres in those venues with whom he has worked closely with over a number of years.
As there is a huge variety of Wedding Professionals to speak with at such occasions, a personal meeting will be the best solution.
This can be arranged via an internet Zoom call without any obligation to discuss exactly how you would like your special day to unfold. 

We like the idea of having our day managed but don't like formality

The emphasis on the way in which Trevor manages your day is totally your choice. A Toastmaster knows how to handle the protocol required but will only ever provide a service as specified by you. Important factor's of Wedding celebrations today are Happiness, Laughter and Fun, often with or without formality, the choice is yours. You can gain a sense of the way in which Trevor can provide a service to your exact needs by checking out  the photo gallery contained on this website.

How long can we expect to have your services

You can rely on Trevor, your Toastmaster for as long as you wish him to attend you on this important day.
Normal practice will see the Toastmaster arriving up to two hours before your Ceremony is due to take place. This specifically applies to ceremonies taking place at the same venue as your planned Wedding Breakfast and evening party. The Toastmaster can attend church if required but this generally is not necessary and would be subject toa separate charge.
How the day unfolds and what you will expect from the Toastmaster will be covered in our planning meeting held well in advance of your Marriage. The service provided can include announcement of the First Dance, this normally takes place around 8pm, therefore where a ceremony having taken place at 2pm it will mean the Toastmasters' average time with you and your guests will be around eight hours.

How do I make payment

The terms for supplying Toastmaster Services remain the same even if your circumstances change.
Once you have decided Trevor is the Toastmaster you wish to reserve for your event, a non refundable booking fee of 50% of the total cost will guarantee the date. The balance is payable thirty days before your event.

A family member is concerned about making a speech at my Wedding

This question is raised more often then you might imagine. Often the thought of having to speak publicly is far worse than the deed on the day. Trevor can assist in a number of ways. Perhaps as an example, guidance about content.
Experience over the years has proved that following a good banquet with plentiful wine the task of making speeches, for instance, by The Father of the Bride, The Bridegroom and The Best Man becomes far less daunting.

What geographical area's do you cover as a Toastmaster

To keep my fee's competitive, as a general rule I will work within a seventy mile radius of my home in Ashford. This will cover the counties of Kent, East Sussex, Surrey, South East Essex and most of the outer London Borough's.
I have the recommendation of a number of venue's, as an example;
Lympne Castle, near Folkestone
Ashford International Hotel, Ashford
Burlington Hotel, Folkestone
Howfield Manor Chartham Canterbury

If you would like to reserve my services outside of this geographical area's I will be more than pleased to provide a bespoke

We have already booked a venue, can we engage you separately

Yes - although Trevor has arrangements with hotels and venue's being their preferred Toastmaster, it does not preclude him from working directly with you or the event organiser, in any venue of your choice. Trevor has a standard fee structure which will cover travelling a round trip of 140 miles. Beyond this mileage there will be a surcharge based on additional mileage only.

What will your Services Cost

The fee structure really does depend on many factors. How long will the Toastmaster be with you on the day.   How much pre-planning will be required. The simplest way for Trevor to provide a costing is to gain some preliminary answers from you. This can be achieved quickly and easily by a telephone discussion or a ZOOM MEETING. You will not be in any way obligated to engage Trevor, and you can use the opportunity to ask as many questions as necessary.
