Geoff and Liz Cracknell.  Beaumont Estates  8th July 2016      

Hi Peter,
We would like to thank you again for all your help throughout the day on our daughter Jenny's wedding last Friday at The Beaumont and particularly in the evening.  We so appreciated you staying later than usual to help get the party started again after Liz's mum was taken to hospital. She had an operation to pin her broken thigh bone on Saturday and we are glad to say she is  doing well.  The day went exceptionally well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Many thanks again.


Andy and Jenny (Bride & Groom)                                            

Thank you so much for being our toastmaster and making our day so very special.  You were brilliant in making the day run smoothly and always went the extra mile such as sorting out our hotel room and staying longer than normal after the unfortunate incident with Jenny's Nanny.   You were loads of fun and contributed towards making our day so enjoyable.  You were also great at getting the audience going and no doubt they responded :-)  As you know the only minor blip to our day was Jenny's Nanny falling over, thank you for being so supportive but also helping to get the audience going again after the dance floor was cleared.  The good news is that Nanny is recovering well and amazingly is already back at home.  She is making great progress and is able to walk around the house :-  Thanks again for everything you did on our special wedding day, we have so many great memories and will live with both of us forever :-)
All the best


Hever Castle, Kent.   17th July 2016                                          

Hi Peter, thank you so much for all you did at our wedding. We honestly had THE best day and you literally put the cherry on the top for us! Thank you again Peter. Lots of love The Holloway's xx


Beverley, Brian Charlotte and Ian.   Hever Castle Kent. 17.7. 2016

Wow what a day though!!! It went very smoothly (you saw to that!!) cannot thank you enough god knows how you keep your cool but you did!!! Having spoken with Charlotte and Ian they are so pleased that they had you as part of their day couldn’t of done it without you, they just felt that you were most definitely their ‘go to man’ along with the guests, who kept asking me where you came from !!!!   Obviously we can thoroughly recommend you, so, you ,may have some enquires as Charlotte has several of her friends getting married over the next couple of years , so hopefully will see you again!!   Once again Peter many many thanks for being part of a perfect day.


Huge, big thank you Peter.  Good job!!! Well done                        

I would like to start my review of Peter by quoting my husband.  He said, ‘I have worked as a DJ and have met masses of toastmasters but Peter was exceptional’.   That basically said it all but I want to elaborate further because that’s what I do lol...I personally agree with all the other reviews I have read on this site.  I have a few things to add.  Peter’s voice holds command and depth.  His tonality is pleasant and not irritating.  He speaks very clearly; at a gentle pace and with appropriate humour.  We have finally reviewed our videography and Peter adds such finesse to our day.  He has great presents and is ultra organised.  We cannot sing his praises load enough.  The whole day ran so smoothly thanks to his professional manner.  We would not hesitate to recommend Peter as Toastmaster for your event.


Geoff and Amy   Farnham Castle   16th July 2016                 

Afternoon Peter,
I hope this finds you keeping well and not too flat out during the wedding season!
Although it's late, I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for your tremendous effort and good spirit for Amy and I's wedding at Farnham Castle back in July. You really did a fantastic job, everyone had a fantastic time and mentioned how excellent you were.  On behalf of Amy and I, thank you again and I shall certainly mention your name to any Friends/Family in the future!
All the best,

Mr and Mrs Hale East Horton Golf Club 18th June 2016             

What can we say? Our day would really not have been the same without you!  You kept the day flowing with perfect timing and managed to make sure everyone was in the right place at the right time - and smiling! You paid special attention to Steve's Nan, who was in a wheelchair - you helped her feel like she wasn't missing a thing and was always part of the special moments! From the moment we met you at the wedding fayre, to the morning of the wedding and then arriving at our venue you gave us such amazing advice - you even allowed us 10mins quiet together away from the crowd to let it all sink in. We have had many great comments about you from our guests - you managed to make each guest feel completely happy and sure of what they were doing / where they should be.  Thank you so much for being part of our special day and making it run so smoothly - it really was our perfect day!  We won't hesitate to pass on your contact details to anyone we know who is getting married!

Mr & Mrs Hellewell - Coltsford Mill     2016                                

27th May…what can I say…what an amazing day! Thank you for being part of it and providing a 5 star service!!! You ensured everything from start to finish ran smoothly, which defiantly made it a lot less stressful for both me & Paul and allowed us to relax and enjoy our day. We weren’t going to have a toast master originally, but having you there was well worth every penny we paid. Peter you were so professional from meeting us at our home before the wedding day right up until we said good bye after the 1st dance, and  can really see you love doing your job. You gave our whole day structure and without you I’m not quite sure how the day would I turned out. All our guests commented on how good it was to have you and I will recommend you to anyone I know planning their big day!  Thank you soo much once again :)

My Daughter Laura Catt married Michael Parry at your Hotel (Ashdown Park Hotel, Wych Cross, East Sussex)on 17th May. I'd like to congratulate all your staff for their courtesy and efficient service. Whilst it is difficult to single out individuals I must mention one exception performer. Peter Tautz the Toastmaster was a star. He went far beyond a normal Toastmasters remit to ensure everything went smoothly and the day was a great success. I would be grateful if you would express my family's gratitude to him.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

We had Peter for our wedding at the Tithe Barn in Petersfield on the 17th April 2014.
We hadn't actually made a decision to have a toastmaster but I met Peter at a wedding fair and he was so genuine and approachable and I felt having him would help with a lot on the day.
The day could not have gone any smoother Peter was fantastic we met up before. He came to our home and met my husband and explained clearly everything he would be doing on the day.
He also came up with ideas to ie using the cupcakes a friend made as canapes this was a great idea people loved the little snack.....
I would highly recommend Peter as a toastmaster for your day he was brilliant :)?

Rachel & Dan Grainger, Wednesday 7 May 2014

We both wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help. You made our day such a amazing day, all our guests commented on how brilliant you were, I am so glad I hunted you down lol, I can't thank you enough :)

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

Rob and I were the photographers at a wedding at Selsdon Park last weekend. We've worked with Peter before and can honestly say he is an excellent toastmaster as well as a very likeable character and easy to get along with. He looks after the bride and groom of course, but he also looks after the vendors and anyone else who needs it. He organised everything exceptionally well and creates a fantastic atmosphere for the day. We love working with him and would highly recommend him to any couple for their special day.

Karen and Rob

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

Dear Peter,
This is just a quick message to thank you once again for the excellent service you provided for us over the weekend as Toastmaster.
The evening passed off in superb style, in no small part due to the professional way you handled proceedings. I twice mentioned my views to Dean, the manager, and if anyone approaches us in the future looking for the services of a Toastmaster, we will have no hesitation in putting your name forward.
Thank you for contributing to the fabulous weekend the pair of us enjoyed.

Raul and Joanna van den Bok, Friday 14 February 2014

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

We were not sure whether to engage a toast master for our wedding, particularly my husband who thought it might be a bit over the top. However, after talking to Peter for a while at a wedding fair at the Royal Hotel, Ventnor, on the Isle of WIght we decided to go for it.

It turned out to be one of the best decisions we made.

Peter visited us several times before the wedding to discuss what we wanted and he carried out our every request. He also helped us with questions we had about etiquette, tradition and 'the done thing'. Peter also liaised with our venue about some of the detail of the wedding which really helped us out.

On the day we did not have to worry about a thing. If anything went wrong we were not aware of it (apart from husband's mother forgetting her dress, which we did know about!). Peter co-ordinated everything that went on and enabled us to really take in the atmosphere and the day without it completely rushing past us in a blur. The day still went quickly but Peter helped us to take a few minutes together several times during the day to really take in what was happening and spend some precious moments together.

Peter enabled our guests to be where they needed to be when they needed to be which was brilliant, and he did this in a polite but authoritative way. This was a real help to the photographer and the videographer. When Peter was not doing this his presence was discreet and unobtrusive.

Peter looked extremely smart and professional throughout the day whilst being friendly and helpful to our guests.

We would definitely recommend his services to anyone arranging a wedding or other gathering. We were completely happy with what he did for us, he was well worth his fee and we are so glad we met him.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

Peter Tautz took control of the Opening Ceremony of the new Seagrove Pavilion in August 2013. This was a complex role, with a lengthy running order and the added difficulty of certain special guests not turning up on the day. With distinct aplomb, Peter ensured the event ran smoothly and to time. His commanding presence presided over the whole event.

From an initial briefing, Peter quickly understood the whole tenure of the event, and was able to ensure that all speakers kept to their timings, as well as putting all speakers at their ease. He was congenial and authoritative, and was able to "ad lib" and draw on humour as required.

Trustees and directors of the organisers of the event were delighted that he was able to take on this role so readily and easily. Peter's experience and ability shone through and 'made' the event.

We would readily recommend Peter Tautz as Toastmaster for any event.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

The Spa Hotel, Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Everything we needed you catered for. The day ran so smoothly and we weren?t concerned about timings or what was going on behind the scenes. We felt so relaxed and absolutely enjoyed our special day.

Being able to meet with you prior to our wedding meant that we could put down our ideas and along with your knowledge of how things should work and timings allowed us to plan for most eventualities. This meant everyone was relaxed and enjoyed everything.

The hotel and photographers said how much easier their jobs were with you there to make sure all guests were in the right places at the right time. With you there I didn?t need to worry about behind and front of house.

Peter I honestly don?t believe you could do anymore. We were over the moon with how the day went, and thanks to you took the stress away from us. I will absolutely use you again for any future functions and will recommend you to all friends, family and anyone else who would require a toastmaster. You are not only a toastmaster but make the groom and bride feel like friends. Once again thank you so much for an absolutely fantastic day and for all you did.

Dear Peter

Thank you so, so much for everything you did for us at our wedding at Beaumont Estate on the 4th May.
You were incredible and the day really wouldn?t have been anywhere near as brilliant without your help!!
Thanks to you, we got all the photos we wanted, I got to see the reception room before chaos descended and I?m sure you helped massively with the overall relaxed and happy atmosphere.
We LOVED our day and cannot thank you enough.

Matthew & Gemma Howell, Wednesday 24 April 2013    

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

You were absolutely fantastic. Thorough, organised, prepared. Took control but didn't go over the top. We knew where you were but did not at any point get in the way or over power the event.

The meeting before was immensely useful. You knew our expectations and managed them perfectly. We also liked your suggestions as to how receiving lines should be positioned and the running order of the day. It put our minds at rest and we felt totally prepared and knew what to expect.

My dad in particular loved the way you encouraged him after his speech. He has made reference to it so many times you made him feel great afterwards and he was so nervous.

Had you not been a part of our day it would not have gone as brilliantly as it did. You were a key player in what was the best day of our lives. We cannot thank you or recommend you enough Peter.

Wedding Royal Corinthian Yacht Club, Cowes

It was one of our first reflections after the wedding, how pleased we were that we made the decision to have a toast master at the wedding. It was about the first thing we booked and certainly one of the best value. All friends and family at the wedding planning their own big days said they would certainly be enlisting the help of a toastmaster at their celebrations. You were so professional and kind it really put us both at ease. We can think of no way that the service could be any better.

Dear Peter,
Thank you very much for doing my son's wedding on the 3rd November 2012. I've finally come down from cloud 9 and what an experience it was. I had to drop you a line Peter, you were amazing and you made the day run like a dream, professional, sophisticated but also very down to earth and approachable. I won?t forget you Peter"

We don't know how we would have managed without Peter at our daughter's wedding to Mark on November 10th. From the initial phone call through to late into the evening of the wedding, Peter was there to organise everything and take the pressure off us. He made recommendations, organised timings and was extremely professional whilst maintaining a friendly manner. All the the guests were very impressed with the smooth running of the day. Thank you, Peter.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

Peter was toastmaster at my daughter Laura's wedding in July and engaging him was one of our best decisions. From the meeting beforehand at the venue and throughout the wedding day, Peter was friendly and professional. He helped the day run smoothly and many of our guests commented on how well he did. Peter enabled my husband and I to have a worry free day and be able to enjoy the occasion knowing that the organisation was in good hands. Peter's friendly but professional presence was recognised by many of our guests who were complimentary about him. We would recommend Peter for your wedding.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

Peter was the Toastmaster for our wedding reception at Southsea Castle on 14th July 2012.

Peter met up with us before the wedding to discuss the day and visited the venue to familiarise himself. The reception would not have run as smoothly as it did without Peter there.

We would not hesitate to recommend Peter's Toastmaster services to anyone who is getting married.

Peter Tautz - The Right Toastmaster

With drinks and canapes done it was time for the meal, back in the Great Hall, with speeches between courses. All choreographed by one of the best toastmasters I?ve worked with, Peter Tautz. No fuss, no centre-staging, no standing behind the speakers and taking over with cheesy photography setups. Frankly some toastmasters are shocking but not this one. I reckon James appreciated Peter's pep talk before he gave the groom's speech.
