Welcome to my website; my name is Chris Caröe and I am a Professional Toastmaster, based in Chester and working in Cheshire, Merseyside, North Wales and the North West. I have been officiating at public & private events around the UK as a Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies for over 10 years now and have built up a reputation as a respected, diligent and humorous Toastmaster.


Wedding Celebrant

As a Wedding Celebrant I can offer you the Wedding Ceremony that you want. With a Civil Registrars ceremony you are very restricted to what YOU can do. Not so with me! What is not so commonly known or understood in this country - is that ONLY the Declaratory Words and the Contracting Words have to be said in a Registry Office, in order for your marriage to be recognised in law and for a marriage certificate to be issued. This can be done before your big day!
One in Eleven Appeal Ball

Charity Auctions Dinners

My role at the event is to ensure we raise the maximum amount of money for your chosen charity.  Selling raffle tickets, running any games or auction; if it can be done I will do it!!

Corporate & Special Events

You will have invested a lot of time and money into the planning of the event and by investing in me you can rest assured that your event will be in very safe hands. Any event requires considerable planning and financial investment before your first guest walks through the door. By employing me as your Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies I will ensure your guests enjoy the event in the manner and style that they would expect from such an organiser as yourself.


You want your day to be perfect, well so do I!! By employing me, as your Toastmaster to project manage your big day, you can relax and enjoy the happiest day of your life.


“We got married at Thornton Manor on 28 March 2015 and Chris was our toastmaster. Chris was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We met Chris twice before the wedding (once at our house and once at the venue). We really felt like Chris took the time to get to know us both before the wedding; he made sure he knew all the little details which he would need to take care of on the day which were important to us. He also suggested things that neither of us would have ever thought of! We have had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic Chris was and how smoothly the day ran. Chris made sure the guests knew what was going on at all times and this really contributed to the relaxed atmosphere at our wedding (especially when there was a ‘slight’ delay to the proceedings when we realised we had forgotten our bridesmaids dresses an hour before the ceremony!) We also really appreciated the little touches like Chris walking the bride’s mother to her seat before the ceremony and Chris letting us use his sword to cut our wedding cake!! We cannot recommend Chris highly enough and would encourage anyone getting married to use Chris as their toastmaster!!”  Heather & Dave
