Phil Shorthouse Professional Toastmaster in Kent


For over 10 years I have been a Professional Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies, being a Graduate and I am now a Past Director of the prestigious United Kingdom School of Professional Toastmasters Ltd.

In 2010 I was made President of the Association of the United Kingdom School of Professional Toastmasters. In 2011 I was a finalist then in 2012 and 2015 a winner of the Kent Wedding Awards as the best Toastmaster in Kent.



I go that extra mile to ensure you have YOUR special day or event. It has been said I am so friendly and relaxed that I suit even the most informal of weddings, which ironically are usually the style which need most guidance on the day.  I am committed to providing an excellent service, balancing professionalism with approachable friendliness perfectly.

I try to surpass the traditional requirements of a toastmaster, fully prepared with my Toastmaster case for any crisis from a ripped dress to a last minute bought of nerves, putting any wedding couple at ease with my charming manner. 

What separates me from most toastmasters is the level of effort put in to my services, from guest arrival to first dance I am on hand at all times for anything the bridal party need and enhances any style of wedding from the most formal to an informal garden party even to a Lord of the Rings themed celebration!

I have an eye for detail and experience to understand your requirements, using traditional rules of protocol, etiquette and time honoured procedures.

I am the In-house Toastmaster at The Ferry House Inn, Harty, Isle of Sheppey.

I am also the  recommended Toastmaster for the following venues.

  • Oakwood House Hotel, Maidstone,
  • Best Western + Coniston Hotel, Sittingbourne,
  • Sole Street House, Faversham
  • Commissioners House, Chatham Historic Dockyard
