Toastmaster Martin Jukes Performing his Duties


Hannah Mac Lennon Dip WP - National Diploma in Wedding Planning

I first met Martin in 2013 when he worked a wedding with me at my venue. Having been the wedding and events manager there for several years, I was comfortable with the suppliers I had been working with and so was a little anxious about meeting Martin. Well, when he arrived, it was love at first site! Not only was Martin polite, friendly and warm, he was instantly helpful and I knew it was going to be a long professional relationship. Martin is confident without being arrogant and takes charge without being domineering. He listens to his clients be it the bride and groom or the event manager and executes everything you would expect and more. My favourite skill that Martin brings to the table that others don't, is his sabrage! Give that man a nice cold bottle of champagne and watch him slice the top off for your bride and groom when they pull up in their vintage carriage - AMAZING! I would recommend Martin to anyone and have enjoyed working with him - my cheeky, sparkly eyed Toastmaster who always goes the extra mile!

Kindest regards

Dear Martin and Lena,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work at our wedding. We do apologise for the lateness of this email but we were awaiting our photos and life has just been very busy!

It was such a blessing having you at our wedding and knowing you were organising the timings of the day was such a weight lifted off my shoulders! And your champagne trick was amazing, some of my friends still talk about that!

We have attached a couple of professional pictures, taken by our photographers, we hope they might help you in any way! We just cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our special day!

If you need any positive quotes from us for any future advertising please do not hesitate when asking!

Thank you again

Mr & Mrs Sutton (Joe and Jodie)

Hi Martin & Lena

Hope you’re both well?

My Wife and I (still sounds odd!) just wanted to say Thank you so much for all of your superb organising on our Wedding Day at Boreham House. You kept everything running on track and made a real impression on us and our guests. Also, thank you so much for our cork - its pride of place on our mantlepiece and for the kind words you said on the video (that Sy was making everyone do) We have attached a few of the pictures from the day.

Please do let us know if you ever need a reference - we would be delighted to help.

Kindest regards,

Jules (aka, Mrs Pierce-Ferguson)

Thanks Martin – it was great to have you and Dick sang your praises to me throughout the afternoon. He said "you were really their kind of guy" – very well mannered, relaxed and not after the spotlight so they were thrilled. Really pleased you got to come down again before Christmas and hopefully see you again in the new year.

Happy Christmas x

Kindest regards

Hello Martin,

Just wanted to drop you a little email to thank you so much for everything you did last Saturday for our wedding.

Always there when needed and discreetly in the background when not-perfect. Having you there was so very helpful and I loved all the little traditions and anecdotes you brought to the day.

Thank you also for our first cork gift-really touched us and will be treasured.

Once again, so many thanks.

Dear Martin

I'm so very sorry it has taken me so long to send you this e-mail. The months have passed so quickly. Soon it will be Christmas!

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for being our toastmaster on our wedding day and for the massive amount of help and support you gave us during our day.

Hi Martin,

You did an excellent job on the wedding day, and everybody commented on how professional and friendly you were.

On a personal note from me, you were also very understanding with my personal situation at the time and I thought you really did a great job with the limited information and amount of time that you had to prepare with.
