Today It’s All About the Man in Red…

I have known Tim for almost as long as I have been running Ice the Cake.  I was lucky enough to find him just before I ran my first Wedding Fair back in June 2011.  He was an absolute gem on the day, supporting me and helping me to organise everything.  Since then he’s assisted me with both of our awards ceremonies, as well as countless events, including our huge Wedding Show in September 2012.
He is friendly, approachable and very good at his job, managing to seamlessly co-ordinate requirements without being intrusive or forceful in his manner.  I have the utmost respect for him and the incredible service he provides and today it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to the Man in Red…  Timothy Lee Toastmaster
