Celebrant & Toastmaster Reviews 2018-19

Sought-after professional Lady Toastmaster and luxury weddings and ceremonies celebrant

So my wife and I were looking for a Toastmaster and being a same sex marriage we initially wanted a female Toastmaster but we left it last minute. Thankfully Sonal was available and what a grand job she did.
She kept the guests entertained before our entrance and a true professional. A great laugh too and a humble soul.
Thank you Sonal for your awesomeness. xXx

Dear Sonal, just a personal Thank you for your tact, understanding and help in ensuring a very well organised and enjoyable event. All the feedback from guests I have spoken with to date have commented on how much they enjoyed the wedding and how everything ran so smoothly.

One of the biggest thanks must go to you for all you did to make Asha’s and Vik’s wedding day so special. Without you we don’t know how we would have managed. We valued the very professional way in which you conducted the events of the day and the seamless way in which you made everything happen. There were problems which you sorted out well before they escalated – not least of which was acting as a mediator when things went wrong, but you handled things so discreetly. We would definitely recommend you to anyone of our friends or families.

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 is a superb Toastmaster, great public speaker, master of ceremonies and a wedding planner “all in one”. Had witnessed all this at my cousin’s wedding over the weekend. She is so organised, truly entertaining and very professional too. Her English is immaculate and she knows how to hold the audience’s interest.

Sonal was a magical component to the overwhelming event we hosted at the Intercontinental O2. This was a very interesting day and a very demanding event for all the VIP and VVIP guests. I was so thankful for the help provided by the Sonal and the Toastmasters and insisted that the event needed their special touch and expertise! I will not hold any events unless I have Sonal or one of her colleagues in scarlet! Thank you Sonal Dave!

It was a pleasure to meet you last night and thanks so much for doing such an amazing job. I received so many positive comments about how you handled the role and it set such a great tone for the evening. I am sure that you will be much in demand and look forward to seeing you again soon.

I booked Sonal for a charity awards night and honestly, hand on heart, I can say Sonal was the best decision I had made. Sonal was not only adding the humour to the event but allowed myself and my co-organiser to relax and enjoy the evening. The quiet moments were filled in, the timing was kept in check and Sonal mingled with all the guests. I highly recommend Sonal if you want a light-hearted, burst of energy addition to your event.

Sonal’s high level of initiative on the day was noticed by all guests. She explained the meaning behind parts of the ceremony when the priest was occupied so that the guests were kept abreast of the events and even sung a surprise filler song, asking guests to wave their hands along, which went down a treat. Ironically, it was also the song that we had picked for our first dance later in the wedding day which made it so special. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and together with the priest and venue, the event was truly magical. Behind the scenes, Sonal was fantastically organised, reliable and reassuring. Several weeks before the event I sent her my meeting notes with the priest outlining the songs I wanted and blanks where I needed help. Sonal learnt all the songs I gave her and helped me pick songs I was missing. She was funny and warm and from the start I felt like I was in a safe pair of hands which cannot be underestimated as guests, bride and groom have hundreds of things to do already.

Sonal is just a delightful ToastMaster. Professional, proactive and reliable. Hugely impressed by her witty style and her command of an audience. She also goes above and beyond to assist hosts and contribute ideas.

Sonal helped to organise a 50th birthday party to remember. She listened to what i wanted and used her vast knowledge of such events and her endless energy to help realise my dream party. Everything went perfect on the day and all my friends and relatives have not stopped talking about the party, A big thank you to Sonal and her team. I have no reservations in recommending Sonal to my friends and relatives.

As a wedding planner, we come across many different vendors all the time. Sonal has always stood out, not only because she is an Asian female toastmaster, but simply because of her bubbly, approachable and genuine personality. She is an absolute pleasure to be around on an event day, and is fantastic at what she does. She knows exactly how to capture all the attention from the guests, carry a crowd and create the right atmosphere. That is exactly what you need on a wedding day, and we love working with Sonal because of that.

I had the pleasure of working with Sonal at a wedding where I supplied the cake. Prior to event Sonal was really well organised and emailed through all the details and even on the day she was easy to contact and make arrangements. She is very approachable and so professional. Would highly recommend her for her services.

Sonal was the MC at our Charity Events in the House of Commons. She was professional, funny and led the evening smoothly. Enjoyed having her support – she made a huge difference to the event. I would highly recommend her.

Sonal is so fantastic as a Toastmaster. You can see her passion coming through when she can command attention and still have that beautiful smile on her face. It’s great to see her confidence shine so bright.

Sonal booked our company for her clients’ wedding and what a wedding it was! Sonal was able to keep everyone’s attention and also kept everyone, including us, entertained. Sonal Was constantly checking the time, knew all the suppliers (introduced herself upon our arrival) and was just so welcoming and bubbly! I’ve met a few Toastmasters and Sonal is the First Lady toastmaster I had personally met and it was lovely to see. She did an amazing job and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
