FAQs

Why do I need a toastmaster?

Many people picture a toastmaster as someone who makes announcements and introduces speeches. That’s true, but there’s much more; your toastmaster is your event master of ceremonies and ‘choreographer’. He, or she, gets people to where they need to be at the time they need to be there. Not always an easy task which takes time and effort. The red tailcoat gives visibility and authority but shouldn’t be a reason for pomposity! You are the stars of your day, not the TM. Hotel staff can coordinate the flow of food and drink but rarely have time or resources to do the full MC job.

Do you cater for LGBTQ+ weddings?

Yes, with pleasure.

Do you need to meet us before the wedding day?

I need information to produce a ceremony tailored for you. You see the ‘script’ at every stage of development. It’s great if we meet face to face but Zoom is a workable option too.

What do your prices start at?

Designing and scripting a ceremony starts at £275 (£125 payable up front). Performing your ceremony from £150

How far in advance should I book you?

Ideally four weeks but I can handle short notice if necessary (and the date fits). My shortest notice so far was three days, but I wouldn’t want to make a habit of it!

About William Freeman Toastmaster and Celebrant

Wedding toastmaster, celebrant and MC services supporting you from your first idea to your live wedding day. Weddings come in every 'shape and size'. I remain the same size but adapt to fit the format, style and level of humour you want. .

Planning a wedding is stressful. As your wedding toastmaster or celebrant, I help plan your ceremony and reception and remove that stress so you can enjoy your wedding day with family and friends.

As your wedding toastmaster, I am also your MC and event 'choreographer', your ‘fixer-of-problems’ and ‘calmer-of-nerves’. I make sure things run exactly as planned and that problems are solved without worrying you or your friends. Most of what I do is very visible (and entertaining) but a lot of my work goes on 'behind the scenes' - and to that extent is 'invisible' (but necessary!).

I can wear any outfit you like but the red tailcoat makes me visible and gives authority without pomposity.

As your wedding celebrant, I will work with you to design a ceremony to give you what you want. If you can picture it, I can make it work for you. You choose the venue - home, garden, beach, pub, marquee, boat, historic site, woodland, sports field, whatever you want. You choose the timing - daytime, night-time, by candlelight or by moonlight.

You can register your marriage quickly and cheaply at a registry office and then, at some other time, have the wedding ceremony you have dreamt of for around £350.

My 'live streaming services' (via a partner company) means you can have your ceremony on the day YOU choose (not when the government tells you!) and still involve all your desired family members and friends. A small ceremony can reach a large audience - live and interactive.

Customer Reviews

We had a toastmaster at our wedding back in 1990, so in celebration of our pearl+ anniversary which to be honest was another wedding, it was a no brainer to do the same. we found William, who is an amazing celebrant. he kept our guests fully engaged during the renewal of vows with wonderful words and light humour. A quick change later and he became our Toastmaster, keeping everything flowing to time with a professional and engaging touch. Our whole day was absolutely perfect. Thank you William for helping to create a wonderful and memorable day. Your ability to make everybody feel at ease and relaxed demonstrated your experience , professionalism and overall talent. Thank you so much with love and appreciation, Mike & Faye

Thank you very much Mike. It was a pleasure to be part of your significant day; Your family members and friends were great fun and enthusiastic participators. Love and good wishes to you and Faye. Do, please, get in touch again for your ruby event!

William was perfect for our wedding! All of our wedding guests were raving about how great our ceremony was and asking us how we had found him. He designed a bespoke ceremony “script” for us and we absolutely loved the fact that he had humour running through it, as we had specifically asked for a very light hearted ceremony, to match our personalities. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a celebrant, MC or toastmaster!! We had the best day ever, thank you William!

Thank you so much. It was a pleasure getting to know you both and meeting your family members and friends. They were very supportive during the ceremony and contributed well. Enjoy your honeymoon and all good wishes.

We are so pleased we had William as our Wedding Toastmaster. He was able to coordinate our suppliers and guests and keep us all on schedule, considering we had quite a large number of guests. He looked smart and professional (we loved the red tailcoat!) and his warm approach was a great addition to our special day.

William done a great job as Toast Master for our Wedding in October. He helped out with the smooth running of the day (including keeping the wifes dress out of the mud when outside). His sense of humour was great and well received by the audience when introducing the speeches. Great value for money and would highly recommend. Thanks again.

William did a wonderful job as a celebrant and toast master for our wedding. We received compliments from the guests. His presence is filling the room with gravitas, manners but also with subtle wit to relax the atmosphere. We wouldn't have hoped for anyone else as professional as William, to make such an impact on the day. We would highly recommend his services.

It was a great pleasure to be part of your wonderful day.

We used William as our Toastmaster at our wedding, and we’re so glad we had him on the day! He helped make the day run perfectly, and he was great with us and the guests. We highly recommend his services, it definitely takes a lot of dress off on your big day!

Hi William Thank you so much for your wonderful ceremonial and MC-ing skills on our wedding day. The day was everything we wanted it to be. The ceremony in particular, felt like it came to life after reading it on paper for so many months, and we thought it reflected Andy and myself so well and gave everyone a real sense of our love and commitment to each other. So, thank you so very much for enabling this. Everybody was so impressed by you and kept thinking we must have known you for years. So, I think that says something about the qualities you brought to the day, your professionalism, humour, enthusiasm and ability to make everyone feel at ease. We will, of course, pass your name on to friends and family looking for an excellent MC and we will send some of the photos from Seamus when he sends them through in a few weeks. Hard to believe the day has been and gone now. However, it has created life long memories which you were a part of, so thank you once again for everything you brought to our day. Many thanks Paula and Andy

Thank you both, it was real pleasure. Good wishes to you. xx (for Paula)

We just used William for our wedding ceremony as well as his MC services. He was exceptional in his duties and made both us and our guests very relaxed and entertained. We would highly recommend him to anybody looking for these services at their event.

William was absolutely brilliant for our wedding at the sailing club. He had the perfect mix as master of ceremonies with some great funny quotes and personal stories of us and took control of the crowd in a lovely friendly way. Lots of guests thought he was a relative, he was so friendly and personable. He even caught our cake as The tiers collapsed on cutting -saved our wedding day! Thanks again

Thanks Claire, luckily I was quite a good schoolboy goalkeeper. xx

William was absolutely wonderful on our special day. The service was beautiful and he also listened to us in regards to what we wanted and what was important to us. We wanted everyone to laugh to and he was perfect at doing this as well. I cannot speak highly enough of William from our first conversation on the phone as we live in australia to our first meeting in the UK. We always felt comfortable and so happy. William helped us feel relaxed and also helped with guidance on speeches and the day he is a true professional and feels like part of the family. Thank you so very much Mr and Mrs Lewis x

William was absolutely outstanding. He really brought the day together and made sure everything ran smoothly for us. A true gentleman with years of experience - we highly recommend his professional services.

William was great from start to finish. He was extremely attentive and helped make our day run very smoothly. He also gave extremely good advice which was so helpful seeing as we had never been married before so were kind of clueless! Would recommend him to everybody, he was fab!

William is GREAT and we would recommend him to anyone and everyone who is looking for a celebrant or toastmaster. William definitely has the balance of professional and personable spot on. We used him as our celebrant at our ceremony in London, and from start to finish he made everything so easy. He listened to what we wanted, gave us ideas, and made our ceremony personal to us. It was professional, personable, funny, endearing and sentimental all rolled into one. Thanks to him our ceremony was better than we imagined.

Id booked william to be toastmaster at my daughters wedding, he was excellent from beginning to end, he was very attentive, was funny and took control when needed, i would have no hesitation recommending william.

William was such a valuable and welcome part of our day. From the start of the planning through to the big day he helped guide us and develop a ceremony script that was personal to us. On the day itself William delivered the service in a warm and vibrant manner and was engaging from start to finish. The addition of us taking advantage of his Toastmaster services meant William spent the best part of the day with us and helped deliver continuity and direction to the proceedings. We received and still continue to receive praise about William from our wedding guests and we cannot recommend him more highly. Thanks again William. Tom & Christine

William was the celebrant at our humanist garden wedding last August. We were looking for someone professional but who could add a touch of warmth, humour and cheer to our ceremony; William fitted the bill perfectly. He took on-board the brief perfectly and created a beautiful but very amusing and light-hearted ceremony, which was exactly what we were going for. William is an excellent speaker, was very responsive to my multiple annoying emails and it is clear to see he thoroughly enjoys his job. I would highly recommend him.

William Freeman was an absolutely fantastic celebrant and toastmaster. As a celebrant he captured our personalities and tailored his words accordingly.

Plus, he also takes sensational 3D photos! We cannot recommend him enough! K and D

William Freeman could not have made our day more perfect. He made the day run so smoothly for us, we could not have wished for a better Toastmaster.

The best thing about William Freeman is his sense of humour! Thank you to William Freeman, he truly is the best.

William was a fantastic Master of Ceremonies on our wedding day and made both my wife and I feel very at ease whilst keeping all of our guests entertained. We would definitly reccomend him to anyone looking for a MC in the future.

Many of our guests commented on William's friendliness and was very approachable yet adding a touch of formatilty and presence to our big day. As you would expect, he helped our wedding run smoothly but what was a nice surprise, he even introduced our guests to our chinese tea ceremony and even provided an explanation of the origins of the ceremony perfectly.
