Lady Toastmaster Reviews
command the silence of the Guests as and when required in a friendly
and warm manner. She included humour as well which was lovely to
On a more personal note we appreciate that from time to time you made sure me and Purnima were relaxed while you made it all happen. Before I end this review, we would also like to thank Dhani and his team for doing such an excellent job in performing the live music. All the guests made positive comments on the live music during the wedding ceremony and the civil wedding and that the live music made all the difference.
Sonal, what can I say! Thank you so much for all your support during our wedding.
We booked you as our toastmaster and after meeting you and going through our itinerary you really guided us by pointing out some things we didn’t think of! When we met we mentioned we would like our wedding to be calm and as quiet as possible which it was given we have over 450 guests (including lots and lots of babies!) We were really pleased how you liaised with other suppliers and interacted with guests to ensure our day was running on time and it really helped that you spoke in English and Gujarati to ensure guests understood what was happening. As we all know Indian weddings do not run on time, however I was so impressed that we were actually running ahead of time which was thanks to you and our suppliers. Our long list of family photos were managed with ease and we didn’t miss any family members out! What was even better was after the wedding you (literally) escorted us from the mandap to outside where we were going to take our pictures as husband and wife and politely spoke to guests who wanted to take pictures with us that we’ll be back – this actually saved us time as we were constantly being stopped by friend and family for a pic!
and very professional Sonal Dave the wonderful toastmaster, and public speaker.
She hosted our first Smile with Shiv charity gala and Sonal did an impecable job on the day. If you are looking for someone to host an event, highly highly recommend Sonal.
Sonal it was a pleasure to work with you, it’s not easy what a toastmaster does but if you want someone who can set the tone & structure the evening & make your guests & you (the hosts) feel comfortable then you need Sonal.
Another wonderful PA collaboration.
Great banter. Ethnicity Awards partner with HSBC and sponsors including Tesco, Natwest, Viacom, Lloyds Banking Group, Legal &
General Investment Group and National Grid.
The awards celebrate business, public figures, politics, sports and so many other areas who all help the ethnicity and race agenda.
I would definitely use Sonal again without a doubt, she was great to work with and definitely added to the event.
Thank you so much
Luxury Celebrant Reviews
an incredible ceremony last week, you did such an amazing job (even with the venue’s dodgy microphone!). We’re so glad we found you, we never imagined we would be writing our own vows or doing a sand ceremony, but these really made the day special. So many people commented on how much they loved the ceremony (lots of tears amongst our family and friends as well!)
We asked Sonal to be the celebrant for our wedding celebration, and we cannot recommend her enough! From the start, Sonal was so helpful and involved to ensure everything was on track. From our first Skype session, she felt like an old friend who we’d known for a lifetime. She was extremely flexible for our needs and wants (even when we weren’t entirely sure what we wanted, she gave us incredible ideas and direction). On the day itself, Sonal was perfect – she made us feel so relaxed and at ease, and we had so many compliments afterwards from our guests saying what an amazing job she had done. Thanks to Sonal we’ll remember this day, and her, for the rest of our lives!
We did receive the ceremony pack, which was beautifully packaged and we’ll keep it safe for years to come!
I’d also personally like to thank you again for the public speaking course. The speech went really well in the evening and I overcame the tremor by taking on the advice provided by you. That was a huge hurdle for me!
Thank you again so much…….I’m sure we’ll be in touch soon!
As far as a celebrant goes, she went above and beyond to make it special for us, even braving the heat! Thank you x
