Toastmaster we didn't know we needed!
John was absolutely brilliant for our wedding at Cooling Castle Barn. We didn't initially want a toastmaster because we thought it would make the day a bit too pretentious and formal but due to number of guests, Cooling Castle insisted we had one. To keep things chilled, John turned up without the traditional red coat to take a background role. Although he took a background role, he played a key part in making our day run smoothly. We are so glad we had a toastmaster at our wedding and we are even happier that it was John. Thank you very much John.

Greatest day ever :)
From the moment in which we knew John was our toastmaster we were blown away by the professional and personal service. John was very detailed in his pre-wedding communications and helped to explain parts of the day that were less detailed to ourselves. It is no exaggeration to say that the wedding would not have run smoothly without him, he was a constant source of reassurance and managed to ensure that the wedding ran on time. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for making our special day run perfectly.

A toast to our toastmaster
We got married at cooling castle barn on 1st July 19 and was lucky to have John as our toast master. The day ran perfectly with the help of John, he made myself and my husband feel at ease. John is very professional and very good at what he does, he brings humour too and fitted perfectly into our day. Many thanks John for your help on our special day!
