Wedding Photographer

Looking back to this New Years Eve we had the fortune to work for a lovely couple Matt & Sally Keetch at one of our favourite venues Warbrook House, during the day we also had the pleasure of working with talented wedding photographer Alison Jepp.

Alison has written a very good blog about the day from a wedding photographer perspective

Here is a video compilation we also created from the day & evening that was all about family

Amy and Jamie Brockman

I don’t usually write reviews because normally, nothing is perfect and I prefer to give constructive feedback. I believe that they should only be written in exceptional circumstances and this is one of those times. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! I was wary of booking Alan for our Wedding for 2 reasons, 1 – I hadn’t heard Alan play before and 2 – It was the biggest day of my life and my now Husband is a massive music lover and Father-in-law used to be a DJ so I had to make my selection carefully on this one.

From the very moment we started to interact with Alan, he was forthcoming with suggestions and ideas and could have not been more helpful in helping us prepare and ensuring that our day flowed fantastically. In no way, shape or form could I fault him from the pre-wedding prep, to our introductions, our meal and the very last song! I had comments from so many of my guests on how fab the music was and how perfectly my day went.

A massive thank you to Alan for making my wedding day wonderful in every way. I had the most amazing magical day and you just topped it off! We will be eternally grateful. A must have for any Bridezillas (like me!).

Best wishes, Amy and Jamie Brockman x

Matt and Sally Keetch

Alan, thank you and Anna Marie so very much for doing such an incredible job with our wedding. You took all of the stress away and made Sally feel totally relaxed whilst you ran the whole day for us. Absolutely brilliant, we could not be happier (well only if we could do it all over again). Huge thanks from us both. Matt and Sally Keetch Xxx

Guides for Brides Wedding Awards

Guides for Brides Wedding Awards

Once again, we are at that time of year where awards are given to those who excel in the industry in which we work. We have been thrilled to have been nominated for a Guides for Brides award for our Wedding DJ services, which is a wonderful accolade, and something that we are incredibly proud of.

Wedding information

Although winning awards is not why we love our job so much, it certainly gives us a great boost to realise just how much those who we work with appreciate us – as they really are at the centre of everything that we do on a daily basis.

Getting nominated for, and sometimes winning, these awards, shows us that we are doing our job right, and it’s great to know that our couples feel that we are serving them well. We treat every couple in a truly unique way, with a service that will result in the wedding of your dreams. This means that no matter how you have been picturing your big day, we are sure to be able to make it a reality.

It is a particular thrill to be nominated for a Guides for Brides reward, as the company are huge in the industry, and specialise in giving brides to be all of the information that they need about everything from venues to wedding cakes. To be considered a top wedding DJ by this company is certainly something to be proud of.

David and Kathy Talbot

Although originally not included in our budget, we soon realised that we needed the help that Alan would give us, and it was worth every penny. We wanted our wedding to run efficiently and didn’t want to overload the best men and bridesmaids with jobs. Alan helped us with the preparations, talking us through options for the wedding. On the day everything ran smoothly – the small details (e.g. a reminder to the groom that this was the last moment to go to the gents before the ceremony) were all covered. We had our dog as the ring bearer, and when in the middle of the wedding breakfast he went missing Alan settled nerves by quickly getting a search organised (the dog was peacefully lying under one of tables). Alan generated a special atmosphere for the evening guests with his presentation of our Love Story. The party afterwards was expertly DJ’d.

Thank you

David and Kathy Talbot

The Wedding Industry Awards

The Wedding Industry Awards

On Tuesday evening, we were thrilled to attend the Wedding Industry Awards at The Barn Bury Court. It is an absolute pleasure to even be nominated, however Alan Marshall Celebrations were particularly thrilled to have been awarded “Highly Commended” when we attended the regional finals, and that speaks volumes about the huge amount of effort that we put into everything that we do.

The Wedding Industry Awards

 

As we all know, your wedding day is probably going to be one of the most memorable days of your life – and we like to do everything that we can to make sure that it is memorable for the right reasons. Alan Marshall Celebrations can work with you right from the very beginning to get to know you and ensure that everything is just as you need it for the special day ahead of you. This is great, as it means that you don’t have to worry about all of the stress of the occasion, and instead you can simply focus on the fact that you are soon going to be married to the one you love.

We can take care of many things for you, including all of the music during the day, and the entertainment in the evening. It is often just as important to think about what not to play, and we can also deal with this – so no embarrassing moments where a song reminds you of the wrong person!

Unlike many other companies, we really enjoy getting to know our couples, and this dedication really shines through when it comes to the work that we do. You can be sure that you will enjoy every moment of your special day, and that Alan Marshall Celebrations will really be able to work with you to create a day that you will remember for the rest of your life.

Wedding Industry Awards

Below is our feedback from The Wedding Industry Awards

General Comments (in random order)

Alan was professional and friendly from start to finish. He helped us make decisions on things we hadn’t even thought of, like how do we want to be introduced when we first enter, how do we want our first dance to be introduced and how long to go on for, advice cards, final songs and exit etc. On the day he was dressed immaculately and made himself known to our parents and bridal party. Honestly can’t fault him. He played excellent music and everyone had an amazing time!
Mrs Rachel Dunnings (martin)

Over all brilliant
Mr Liam Davis

Alan was always available when contacted and immediately replied to any emails. He came out 3 times after the initial consultation, including to the church rehearsal. When the hall sound trip system kept cutting the music out Alan found a way to sort it out with minimal fuss. His daughter helped out with anything that needed doing including waitressing which was not part of their service. I am a bit of a control freak but totally relaxed the whole day knowing Alan had everything under control.
Mrs Karina Cattemull (Jarvis)

Alan and his son were absolutely brilliant at our wedding, they went above and beyond what was expected of them. When we first met Alan we had never realised different options you could have to make your day even more memorable and Alan was brilliant at showing us different options to make our wedding unique to us. Alan was always a phone call away and on more than one occasion met with me short notice to help get rid of any worries I had regarding how the day would go. Money well spent!
Mrs Darcey Hollis (O’Donnell)

One word…unbelievable!! From the very first meeting with Alan to the final goodbye he had a such a great positive energy and smile! He is nothing short of a miracle worker and can really make your wedding dreams come true. Such a great help and always on hand to answer even the foggiest off questions. My wife and I felt so relaxed as the day got nearer purely because we knew alan would have everything in hand. Huge weight off our shoulders. He knows his stuff! Professional. Caring. Unreal!!!!!
Mr Adam Haskins

We cannot thank Alan and his son enough for all they did on our Wedding Day. We had nothing but compliments from our guests about Alan and the service he provided, not only as an MC but as a fantastic DJ. If it wasn’t for him the day would not have run as smoothly. He is a true professional!
Mrs Sarah Bremner

From the moment we met Alan we knew we wanted him to be a part of our wedding. With details from us he painted a vivid picture of what our wedding would be, how he could help with the planning, the great ideas he had and also the things he could do during the day to make it as personal to us as possible. I emailed Alan constantly leading up to the day, he came back swiftly and cleared up any fears or worries I had.
Mrs Maz Clay (Eveleigh)

We really couldn’t have picked a better DJ/Master of ceremonies. Alan and his son we’re so professional and couldn’t do enough to make sure we were happy with everything throughout the day starting with a comprehensive planner for us to complete and multiple meetings. When I had noticed that my venue stylist hadn’t put out a set of fairy lights Alan made it a priority to find them and put them out. The range of music throughout the day and evening was perfect in setting the tone.
Mrs Amelia Cardrick (Halligan)

It is with confidence that i say Alan Marshall ‘made’ my wedding day. Every stress, worry & fret was handled with the utmost expertise. From the very first meeting my husband & I knew that Alan was a true professional who actually listened & more importantly heard what we wanted. The day flowed perfectly & our guests are still commenting on the amazing day they had. Almost all commenting on the brilliant & unique experience Alan provided. Perfect balance of romance, fun & sentiment.
Mrs Marianne Doherty

We would highly recommend Alan as a key member of any wedding party, his planning and dedication to us from the first day we met was outstanding, and he his personal and professional approach which made the day run faultless, He took away all the stress off the day for us.Thank u Alan again for making our day special.
Mr Jonathan Bennett

Hi would like to thank Alan and son for all their hard work throughout the day and from comments received how well it was organised it was lovelyto know Alan was there to take all the pressure off BILL and Myself so that we had a lovely day thanks from Jenny and Bill xx
Mrs Jennifer Richardson (Timmins)

Alan did an amazing job at our wedding. The services he offers are far more than a standard wedding DJ. What impressed me most was that he has the perfect balance of keeping the day flowing nicely, but never taking over. If at any point during the day I had a question or concern, then Alan was always somewhere nearby to help out. Many of the wedding guests commented on how fantastic the ‘love story’ was that Alan did, and also how much fun the games were.
Mr Chris Alison

Alan was fantastic. From the moment we booked him, we knew that we had nothing to worry about. I knew that my perfect day was in capable hands when I booked Alan. He took care of everything and made us feel so special. There was nothing that was a challenge for Alan, he could cope with anything that we asked him to.
Mrs Keira Couzens (Duncan)

The Wedding Industry Awards

Why They Booked (in random order)

Having spoken to Alan about how we envisaged our Wedding, he listened and didn’t push any of his own ideas on us; he just suggested ways in which to make our ideas extra special and how to join everything up into something that really ‘flowed’ well.
Mrs Sarah Bremner

I have known Alan since he was a young DJ i was told by my friend whose grandson had Alan do the whole wedding day how wonderful it was, to have someone to organise the whole day
Mrs Jennifer Richardson (Timmins)

He seemed to really know what he was doing, was professional, friendly, knowledgable and good value for money. Alan kept in touch with us throughout the planning. He also gave us a brilliant planning book that gave him a chance to get to know us a bit more to make his service more personal. It also helped with our planning, thinking about specific songs we wanted (and didn’t want!) and adding in the extra touches (like advice cards). Brilliant service and definitely worth what you pay. Our guests also gave loads of positive feedback about how great he was!
Mrs Rachel Dunnings (martin)

I was extremely impressed by his professionalism, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to other couples.
Mr Chris Alison

Alan was so thorough during the initial consultation that he gave me total faith in his services. A faith that was certainly not mis-placed.
Mrs Karina Cattemull (Jarvis)

Because of his professionalism and how stress free he made thing for us.
Mr Jonathan Bennett

He is a family friend and I knew what amazing service he would provide. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else to be my wedding DJ.
Mrs Keira Couzens (Duncan)

Price, experience
Mr Liam Davis

Previous bookings spoke for themselves. Great man.
Mr Adam Haskins

He got our wedding vision straight away. We wanted intimate, fun and romantic and Alan did all he could to make sure it happened. From first speaking to him he knew what he was talking about and I felt confident that he wouldn’t let us down.
Mrs Maz Clay (Eveleigh)

Combination of several things – professionalism, track record, trust, highly recommended – to name just a few.
Mrs Marianne Doherty

After being recommended to Alan by a family member and meeting him and his wife in the comfort of our own home, Alan was an obvious choice above all else due to his level of professionalism and range of options to include throughout the day, no one else provided a service like Alan.
Mrs Amelia Cardrick (Halligan)

We wanted a unique stress free experience and Alan had been recommended by a friend as he had been booked for their wedding. They said he was amazing so we met with Alan and we could see how much he cares about the couples that come to him.
Mrs Darcey Hollis (O’Donnell)

Highly Commended

Wow what a night!  Tonight Anna Marie & I attended the Wedding Industry Awards bash at the lovely Bury Court Barn for the regional London and South East finals.  And what a night it was to filled with excitement, surrounded by many familiar faces.

The awards started at 8:30 pm with first up regional wedding DJ of the year, as the presenter started by mentioning because of the quality of entrants there would be an additional award Highly Commended Wedding DJ, little did I know a few seconds later I would be walking up to collect this additional award Highly Commended Wedding DJ London & South East Region, blown away does not do it justice.

When I returned to my seat the best news ever my friend & colleague Gary Evans of Gary Evans Weddings had won the Best Wedding DJ award, truly a well deserved win Gary – walking away with these prestigious and coveted awards is a great acknowledgement that what we do for our couples is valued but the real award is each & every weekend when we get to see their smiling happy faces in the knowledge that we exceeded their expectations.

Sophie & Ashley Highfield Park

Making all of the right decisions about your wedding day can definitely make sure that your event is turned into something wonderful that you are always going to remember.

Wedding Industry Awards 2017

Wedding industry awards 2017

We are pleased to announce that, for the third year in a row, we have been fortunate enough to have made it through to the regional finals of the Wedding Industry Awards.

To have made it to the final once was an honour – but to have been given a place for the third year in a run is, I feel, testament to the way that our business runs, and to the way that our clients feel they connect with us and our work.

As a wedding DJ Hampshire based entertainment company specialising Fun weddings with a unique twist. We have a huge amount of experience in the industry, which means that we can help every single couple to piece together the wedding day that they have always been dreaming of.

We are thrilled to make it through to the regional finals, as it recognises the fact that our couples are more than happy with the work that we do – and we always make sure that they are the focus of every single second of our job.

From the moment that a couple decide to book our services, we work as hard as we can to make sure that we are able to provide them with an excellent service, and this can include things like providing a DJ service, Master of Ceremonies, and our famous “Love Story” service – where we tell the couple’s individual story in an engaging and entertaining way.

A wedding day is such an important and special occasion, and we are thrilled that, over the years, we have been able to be a part of that day for so many happy couples. Thanks to the feedback that we receive, alongside the work that we continue to put in, we can be sure that this service will carry on for many years in the future.
