Lovely review from clients who booked my exclusive and professional services as wedding toastmaster and Coordination for their Hindu Wedding at The Diary at Waddesden Manor in Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire on 30 July 2023
Thank you for being an absolute star. You are absolutely part of the family.
Jonathan, my family and I don't have enough words to thank you for everything you did for my sister's wedding. We knew even before the wedding how amazing you would be. You took the time to go through the day and contact suppliers which completely reassured us.
On the day, you arrived promptly and checked in with suppliers and made sure everything was in place.
Jonathan you were an absolute star during every part of the wedding. When you came in dancing with the Baraat we knew you were going to be priceless to the day. You definitely are part of the family.
Thank you for making sure that our guests all knew what they were supposed to be doing and where to be. That the Bride and Groom were all ready and had everything they needed.
You came in smiling and you left smiling. You were an absolute positive light on the day. Without you, I absolutely know we would have struggled to get the day organised. You were so calm the whole day even when parts got stressful.
You were even still dancing towards the end. You are without a doubt a superstar.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for my family and I in making my sister's day so special.
You were simply perfect.
Very Special review from clients who booked me for their Hindu and Civil Ceremony and Reception for their Wedding on 24 October 2021 at Boreham House in Essex as Wedding Coordination and Toastmaster and Compere
What a wedding!!
I had to write and thank you personally on behalf of the entire family for playing such a key and active role to ensure the day was perfect!
Your meticulous planning in calling all the suppliers before the big day, running around for over 12 hours to make sure the long day was smooth and seamless and always with a smile on your face was remarkable. I even saw you walking around with the large table plan to guests so they knew where they were sitting. That’s commitment and dedication for you!
We made absolutely the right choice and you are worth your weight in gold and more. Who needs a wedding planner when you’re around!
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Here is another review from one of my Satisfied Clients
Thank you ever so much for all of your help. From the moment we got in touch with you through to when the dancing began at the reception- you were with us the whole way.
You were on call for us and accessible to both Priya and I to make the whole journey easier to manage. Your assistance on the day, to say at the very least, is hugely pivotal to the wedding working in a smooth and orderly fashion. You took on the task of executing all of the planned itineraries and ideas to ensure everything worked like clock-work.
For those couples reading the review to better understand the role Jon plays, in a nutshell Jon becomes the fixer/ manager/ task master/ coordinator and many many other roles on the day. He works closely with the bride and groom weeks before the big day(s) to plan everything down to perfection. He will communicate with all of the vendors, who he is already well connected to, and also has a huge book of contacts for couples to tap into. Jon brings fantastic energy to the event and takes on the stress of managing everything to relief the burden on the bride & groom.
We would highly recommend Jon for his key attributions to ensuring everyone's special day becomes memorable and enjoyable.
We wish you all the best Jon and hope to see you at events in the near future.

Napkin Game - Guests will pass the napkin around there table, i will beef up the atmosphere and get them it do it faster and faster, and then I will tell them to stop, and the person holding the Napkin, will won a prize ( maybe a box of ferrero rocher )
Best Mans Sweep Stake - I will go round to the guests and ask them if they want to take a bet on how long , the best mans speech will take, it is 5 pounds per person to enter, i will then have all the names written down, I will then time on my phone, and the person closest to the time taken, will receive the money. ( I can do this for Grooms, Father of bride speech or any other )
I will go around to family and friends with my Video Cam, and take snippets from them, wishing you congratulations, and giving you words of wisdom for the future.
Clients purchasing a Polaroid or Instant Camera with Film for around 40 Photos and they provide for Guest Book and Glue Sticks, I will go around the dinner tables and drinks reception and take photos..
I love the Shoe Ceremony, this is when I ask the bride and groom, either on their special day or prior, to write a message to each other on the back of there shoes, and I will read them out on the day, or they can read them to each other...... these shoes will be kept for the rest of their lives, so it is always lovely to look back on.
I also like the very special ' Bride and Groom Game ' This is where 10 questions are compiled by myself, I will then ask the guests starting with the first question, i will then proceed to ask the guests the questions, and after each question, they will put hands on there heads for bride or hands on the backsides for groom. I will then ask the bride and groom the question, and they will decide unanimously between them, if the answer is ' bride ' or ' groom ' and then the winners stay standing and losers are seated, we keep on doing this until we get a winner, and the bride and groom will present the winner with something funny.. as that person knows about the bride and groom intimately. If there are several winners, then everyone will just give them a round of applause, or even the winner can just receive a round of applause.
The First Dance scoring is brilliant, This is where the bride and groom have there first dance and i then ask 5 volunteers, to write on the paper provided, marks out of 10, at the end of the dance, they then reveal there marks, and ask them why they awarded them for example 8 out of 10.
I also love the Drinks Game .. 5 Alcoholic drinks are placed next to the Bride and 5 next to the Groom, with lots of audience noise, the winner will be the person, who can drink them the fastest, lots of fun. ( Or this can adapted, to the bride and groom and 4 volunteers on each team)
I love the superb Picture Scavenger Hunt
Send your guests on a Mobile phone scavenger hunt by creating a list of 10 wedding moments for them to capture with their phones, like:
a couple kissing
someone taking a shot
a delicious dessert
a group selfie
Not only does this give your guests a fun activity, you'll end up with even more pictures at the end of the day. Bonus tip: turn it into a contest where you'll vote for the 3 x best photos overall after the wedding, then the winners may even receive a little gift !. This way, your guests will go for quality photos, not just quantity, and you'll end up with better snaps. You can also instruct guests who are playing to use your wedding hashtag , such as #johnandmichellewedding and post the photos on social media, such as Instagram and Facebook to easily catalog all the fun pictures.
The Chair Game is always lots of fun, this is where we ask for 7 volunteers and there are 6 chairs laid out, and i may ask the volunteers maybe to fetch a lighter first of all, and the first people to fetch a lighter and sit on the chairs are still in and the other person who has not been fast enough is out, and I keep doing this with different things, such as Pen, Glass and more, until we get a winner, the bride and groom may want to give a prize to the winner.
Open Forum on Speeches - It is always fun during the drinks reception or just after or even before main speeches to do a little 15 to 20 minute session. It is always lovely to hear from guests.
I Love the Flipper Game, FLIPPER GAME - I will set up two chairs apart from each other, I will then ensure the Flippers are ready ( which will be supplied by the couple), guests will Flippers on there feet when they are competing . I will then choose 2 teams - One on Brides Side and the bride will also play and One on Grooms side and the groom will also play( 4 people on each side), there will then be a winner. I will ask for 2 more teams, and they will play against each other, and that will produce another winning team. Then the two winning teams will play against each other and the winning team will be awarded prizes by the bride and groom.
In relation to Events, I have lots of ideas, that will enhance your event, and make it that much more memorable.
