Dave was the Toastmaster at our wedding on the 6th of May 2017, he was awesome. I have seen people do the role previously who appear to think everyone is there for them, not Dave, he was there for everyone, he helped my wife, my best man, ushers and our photographer Rupert Marlow. He was a constant in the background not shouting but encouraging, calm of manner and nature. We had over thirty children there who were at different points of the behaviour scale, Dave took it all in his stride .. a real gent, nothing was too much trouble.
Wedding date: 25.6.16: We would both like to thank David Stallworthy for all his help. You were amazing and you made our day run so smoothly, we would have been lost without you. Very highly recommended.

Wedding date: 30.8.15: We had the pleasure of David being our toastmaster at our wedding at Mercure Bristol North The Grange Hotel back in August 2015, and I must say he truly made our day run a lot smoother than we had anticipated. Assisting with gathering our guests together for the ceremony, photos, wedding breakfast etc. David was very attentive to our needs as the bride and groom (groom - words of advice for speeches. Bride - carrying my shoes when my feet had had enough). As well as offering assistance for our elderly guests. All in all, David's attention to detail along with his friendly and professional manner helped make our special day even more special.
Wedding date: 5.6.15: On behalf of my wife and myself we want to thank you so very much for the sterling work you did as our Toastmaster at The Grange. You helped make our wedding day the fantastic day that it was. With you and our Bestman in control, it made our big day flow with ease, to the point we had nothing to worry about all day long. We would highly recommend you as Toastmaster to anyone that asks. Again, many thanks.

Wedding date: 11.10.13: Justin and I have just got back from our honeymoon, and would like to say a massive THANK YOU for really making our day perfect. You are such a gentleman and were that finishing touch which made our wedding sparkle. Our guests commented on how lovely you were, and we really appreciate you looking out for everyone and making sure things ran smoothly. Thank you for all your communication and help prior to the wedding also. The speech guidance really was useful for all of the guys! Thinking back to the day, we really were hassle-free and we can only think that is credit to all your hard work, and organisation behind the scenes on the day, whilst still have a calm and kind exterior. The day ran seemlessly. Both of our parents would also like to extend their thanks to you for being wonderful, and guiding us all through it. You definately will be getting our vote and support for the wedding industry awards. Again, thank you very much! We have a few friends who will be getting married over the next couple of years and we will be making sure they know why they NEED you! We will be highly recommending you. Kind regards and all the best for the future.
Wedding date: 5.4.13: We just wanted to thank you for the part you took in our wedding on April 5th. We had a fantastic day and couldn't fault anything that happened. We wanted our wedding to be informal and low-key and weren't sure that we needed a toastmaster but we are really grateful for your time and input. You allowed it to run really smoothly and yet we felt that the day kept the informal atmosphere we wanted.
Wedding date: 31.8.12: Thank you for being a great Toastmaster at our wedding on 31st August 2012. We had a brilliant day, our guests commented on your professionalism. Many thanks.
Wedding date: 2.6.12: From the moment Dave arrived on the day he exuded an aura of calm. The first thing Dave said to me was "if there is anything you need just call me and I will sort it out fro you", and he was true to his word, all I had to do was call reception and Dave arrived within minutes. With Dave, every problem had a solution. Dave ensured everything went to plan, calming both myself and my husband Graham, even down to using a small hand held fan to cool Graham down whilst he was waiting for me to arrive! My niece was so impressed that she spoke to Dave during the reception, and plans to book Dave for her wedding this December. I strongly recommend Dave to anyone who is planning a wedding.
Wedding date: 3.9.11: We have just come from our honeymoon and had the most fantastic time!! We just wanted to send you an email to say what a brilliant job you did on our wedding day. We couldn't of asked for it to run any smoother. We can't thank you enough. The day went without any hick ups thanks to your organisation!!! Everyone has said to us what an amazing job you did, especially the help you gave our photographer. Everyone also loved the casino too! that was so much fun. We couldn't of asked for a more perfect day. Thank you again Dave.

Wedding date: 6.3.10: We want to say a huge thanks for helping make our wedding day run so smoothly! You were amazing on the day and always seemed to be in three places at once. So many people have commented on how great you were and that you helped with various things. On a personal note, you relieved so much of the stress from us that we just couldn't be happier If you hadn't been there we would been worried about a million little things, but you took care of everything. Thank you so much, you were an absolute star on the day and really helped make our wedding the perfect day!
Wedding date: 7.11.09: We also would like to thank Dave as he too was a wonderful support, not only to the wedding party, but the photographer and other key people helping with our wedding. His guidance on the day and his support and organisation with Val meant that for a very nervous Bride and Groom we were guided to the right places at the right time. Additionally this added touch meant a lot of our guests, especially as both myself and my husband were not always around.
Wedding date: 20.6.09:Thank you very much for all your work and efforts on the day of our wedding at The Grange Hotel on 20 June. You helped us feel very relaxed and full of confidence that the day would run / was running smoothly. Thank you also for your card! We both thoroughly enjoyed the day and really appreciate your efforts and attention to detail 'behind the scenes'. You are most certainly an asset and essential to any wedding reception!
Wedding date: 19.9.08: Dave Stallworthy was the toastmaster at our wedding and what a wonderful contribution he made to our special day. Not only was Dave the toastmaster, he helped, supported and assisted us throughout the day with various duties. He supported and reassured the bridal party and myself at all times. Dave also assisted a good friend of mine who was the photographer. This was by organising and arranging everyone accordingly for the photos, which was hard work, but Dave's excellent organisational skills made this easy for everyone. After the Wedding Breakfast, Dave was asked to make announcements on our behalf, which he performed excellently. Dave is motivated and passionate about his hob and role. We had met Dave a few months before our Wedding day when visiting the Grange for an appointment. We were therefore able to phone him on various occasions before the wedding asking for advice, which was greatly valued. My friends and family spoke very highly of Dave, he made our day! We would all recommend him to anyone. Dave's warm and friendly nature will endear him to all he meets.
Wedding date: 24.5.08: Thank you so very much for being Toastmaster at our wedding at Stonehouse Court Hotel on 24 May 2008. It was so reassuring for both Mark and I and our families to know that you were overseeing the day. The advice and support that you offered prior to the day was invaluable as was your presence on the day and the facilitation of our strict schedule. We were impressed by how discreetly and successfully you managed the day's events. Our guests have been singing your praises and commenting on how professional you were. Mark and I have been trying to decide what party we can have next - just so that we can book you again!!! You exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation in recommending you and we wish you all the very best for the future.
International Safer Roads Conference 2008: 11/14.5.08: I have great pleasure in providing a reference for Dave Stallworthy. Dave acted as MC at the International Safer Roads Conference 2008, which we organised on behalf of WDM Ltd, The Highways Agency and Transit New Zealand. The Conference and adjoining exhibition was held at the Centaur at Cheltenham Racecourse from 11 - 14 May and was attended by delegates from 28 different countries. As MC, Dave's duties included welcoming the delegates and ensuring the Conference ran to schedule, which he accomplished with a calm authority and good humour. He was also tremendously supportive of the Secretariat and went out of his way to help in any and every way possible. Without question, his professionalism contributed greatly to the success of the event, which many delegates described as the best they'd ever attended. I have no hesitation in recommending Dave a a professional toastmaster and master of ceremonies of the highest quality.
