Colin Andrews is a member of The Toastmasters and Masters of Ceremonies Federation based in Yorkshire. 

My aim as a fully accredited Toastmaster is to provide you with a quality and personal service which ensures your wedding, special occasion or corporate event runs as smoothly as possible. My uniform adds to the sense of occasion and I am trained to ensure toasts and speeches are announced in the correct order.

As your Toastmaster I would act as a link between the organisers, guests and venue staff. At times the unexpected can happen, but Toastmasters are able to handle problems, relay messages and identify solutions leaving you and your guests free to relax and enjoy your special day/event.

I am trained in the art of sabrage, a custom which dates back to the Napoleonic wars, when handsome cavalrymen celebrated victory by opening bottles champagne by slicing off the neck with a sword.

Some clients ask me to perform the ancient ceremony of “the loving cup” said to have originated in ancient times in the precaution to right or “dagger hand” employed so that the person who drinks may be assured of no treachery!!

Although I have worked in other parts of England, most of my work is in Hull and the Yorkshire region. I am willing to travel to other parts of the United Kingdom and abroad.


“I have been meaning to get in touch to thank you for all your help at the wedding. You were great and a pleasure to have around all day and we both really appreciated the way you kept things ticking over. It was lovely to hear a Hull accent as well! I hope that your summer has been a productive one and any wedding is lucky to have you. Thanks again for everything”.

Matt and Siobhan, Sheffield.

“Hi Colin, just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you did at our wedding. You were fabulous”.

Grace and Michael, East Yorkshire.

“Colin, thank you so much for ensuring the smooth running of our wedding day. You helped keep us really calm and made our day perfect”.

Jessica and Stuart, Hull.
