Claire was amazing, she took control for us and made sure that everything ran smoothly, she was a god-send! We could not have done it without her. Claire was so organised, which meant we could get on and enjoy our wedding. Claire made sure that our private moment was indeed private and stayed on when we ran late. It was a pleasure that she joined us at our wedding breakfast, a very welcome guest. All of our guests commented on how professional and pleasant she was. We would definitely recommend Claire's services to others.

Claire was every part the amazing Toastmaster we had hoped for. She has amazing energy, was poised, professional and kept everything running smoothly all day so that we could have an amazing day. She was available to answer all our questions prior to the day and help with the refinement of the timetable. Claire's personal touch helped those giving a speech feel at ease. Further, Claire worked well managing the other suppliers. We would hire her services again in a heartbeat. Thank you Claire and Warble Entertainment.

    Authority - All elements of the day are co-ordinated and supervised to ensure that everyone performs to the best of their ability.

    Peace of mind - No stress or worries on the day.  A commitment to guide you every step of the way:  should a problem arise I work quickly and quietly to rectify it without any fuss.

    Personal - Your special day is exactly as you planned it to be.

    Insurance  - A relatively modest investment to ensure a worry free day with £5m liability insurance.

    Dignity and Style - Adds an extra ‘Touch of Class’ to the occasion without ever being overbearing.
