A toastmaster is there specifically to enhance your wedding day, not to be a showman or be overbearing and Patrick's style is one of friendliness and professionalism. He can help ensure that there is a framework to the wedding that smooths the way for the day. He will answer those tricky wedding questions: Who makes a speech and in what order? Who proposes a toast and to whom? Who should be in the receiving line? When do you cut the wedding cake and all other questions on protocol and etiquette. Typically, on your wedding day Patrick will arrive one hour before the wedding in order to check timings with suppliers and key guests. Later on, after the wedding service he will greet the bride, bridegroom and guests and will guide them into the venue. He can help the photographer organise the guests for the all important photographs, and if you have one, announce your guests to the receiving line prior to the wedding breakfast.

Once your guests have entered the Wedding breakfast area and have taken their seats according to the table plan, Patrick will then announce and bring  the Bride and Bridegroom to the top table. Then, if needed, he will introduce a chosen person to say Grace or say Grace himself. Speeches can be made either before or after the wedding breakfast. The cutting of the cake is normally done after the wedding breakfast and Patrick will announce both of these. Patrick always stays to announce the first dance and later by request
