Fees charged depend on a variety of factors including size/type of function, distance and duration.

All quoted fees are inclusive and valid for 7 days

The Booking Fee is 50% of the quoted fee and will be required within 14 days to secure the date.  During this term, should I receive another enquiry for the same date, I will contact you to confirm if you wish to go ahead or not with the booking. If you wish to go ahead the booking fee will be required immediately.  This is non refundable and guarantees the booking.

Where possible the fees should be paid by BACS: Sort Code 40-17-14  Account Number 12359359 – Quote Ref:  Bride’s Surname

Please send cheques to 17 Canadian Avenue, Chester CH2 3HG

If any of the instructions are altered, the Toastmaster reserves the right to increase the fee accordingly.

Returned Cheques

Returned cheques will be charges at the standard banking rate incurred plus £5.00 administration fee due to the time taken to process.


£5M Public Liability Insurance cover in held through the Association of the UK School of Professional Toastmasters or the Northern Guild of Toastmasters, via the Toastmaster General Council. This can be seen on request.


Engagements are accepted in good  faith, based on the information provided by the client and are deemed to be acceptable only when the booking form and associated fee have been paid to the Toastmaster. The Booking Fee is deducted from the Full Quoted Fee.  The balance of the full quoted fee is payable 6 (six) weeks prior to the event. No invoice will be sent.  Receipts will be issued if requested.

Force Majeure

Every effort is made in good faith to fulfil the engagement; however, non arrival due to circumstances beyond reasonable control (extreme weather, industrial action, failure of public services etc.) cannot be accepted. In such events a mitigating refund may be made, however this will be limited to the fee paid.  In the event of illness or accident, every effort will be made to provide a suitable substitute Professional Toastmaster, with all details and planning passed on. No additional fee will be charged in this situation.


In the event of cancellation, by the client for any reason, the following charges will apply:

  • From acceptance of the Booking up to 6 (six) months prior to the event, the 50% Booking Fee is paid
  • Less that 6 (six) months  prior to the event, 75% (seventy five percent) of the Quoted Fee, less the Booking Fee paid
  • Less than 4 (four) months prior to the event, 100% (one hundred percent) of the Quoted Fee, less the Booking Fee paid

Cancellation will only be accepted in writing or email from the client.  Fax or telephone cancellations are not accepted.

Clients are encouraged to take out their own Wedding Insurance Cover.


Should the event be postponed, reassignment of the Booking Fee, or Full Quoted Fee, is at the sole discretion of the Toastmaster
