Where are you located and what service/products do you offer?
I am based in Lancashire but I travel all over the UK and also into Europe for destination weddings. I am a Singer/Host and I offer a full days entertainment from ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast, evening reception. Everything I do is tailored to exactly what my client wants. This includes any song requests from first dance right through to ceremony. I offer an interactive wedding breakfast experience, a real party atmosphere which sets up nicely for a brilliant evening. I also host the whole day to ensure it runs smoothly and everyone is relaxed and having a great time.
How long have you been involved in the industry?
I've been lucky enough to have a brilliant career like this for over 8 years.
What planning advice would you give to couples?
You absolutely get what you pay for when it comes to your entertainment and this is so important when planning your budget. Getting the entertainment right can make the difference between having an amazing wedding day where its remembered for all the right reasons. There are entertainers who promise the earth I urge everyone to do your homework thoroughly, try to see them perform live before you make your decision, if they avoid meeting you prior to the big day take this as a red flag. Finally ensure they work with the view that the focus of the day is about you, if you see them constantly with a selfie stick in hand the focus is on the wrong person. Book early, the best people are booked up to 2 years in advance.
Have you got any trend tips for couples planning their own wedding?
Themed weddings are very much on trend ie, Peaky Blinders or rustic weddings are very popular right now. Choose a theme which best sums you up as a couple.
Have any weddings you attended left a lasting impression and why?
Weddings which have a wedding breakfast where family and friends are singing along and dancing are amazing. One such was earlier this year where over 200 guests hardly ate anything as they were too busy dancing was incredible!
Any other information you like to add?
Your big day should always be about you, celebrating your love for one another, creating incredible memories, the soundtrack to your day should be so special, I would love to help you create your perfect day.
