THANK YOU TO ALL MY LOVELY BRIDES AND GROOMS FOR YOUR FEEDBACK

Amy & Jamie

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, Mrs B x

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.

Hiring Alan Marshall Celebrations will be the best decision you make.
Before Alan first came to see us we had a figure in our mind for our entertainment. Alan came out for the initial consultation and convinced us that he was the person we wanted to be our M.C and D.J. Unfortunately the figure he gave us exceeded our initial budget.

Despite this we made the decision to hire Alan – it was the best decision of our whole wedding. To say Alan was better than we could have ever hoped for is an understatement. He always answered queries in full leaving me happy that he had everything under control. When I asked for a meeting, to view the hall, Alan obliged. When I asked Alan to be at the church rehearsal and to meet the waitresses, he obliged. In all Alan came to us four times before the actual wedding, this was all included in the package. He was always happy and relaxed and managed to make us feel the same.

On the day everything ran seamlessly due to Alan’s meticulous pre-planning and discussions about exactly what we wanted. His ideas kept the wedding flowing worked perfectly. When the venue’s sound delimiter failed Alan sorted it with minimal fuss. He dealt with the photographer, caterers and waitresses to ensure everything; welcome drinks, wedding breakfast, speeches and clearing away for the evening guests’ arrival, ran smoothly.

At least half of our guests have said to me that mine was the best wedding they have ever been to. The reason for this was most definitely because Alan was our Master of Ceremonies and D.J. I can honestly say that, if you can work it into your budget, you have to hire Alan.
Like us hiring Alan Marshall Celebrations will be the best decision you can make for your wedding.

We booked Alan’s all day service and we knew that we were in the best of hands. There was no task that was too big and everything was done to such a great standard. We felt very comfortable on our day and in the run up to it as we knew that Alan had everything covered. We had a fantastic day and it ran as smoothly as the electrics would let it. There were issues with the venue but Alan and his team worked so hard to ensure that the groom and myself did not have to worry about it. We had the best day and we know that it would not have been the same without Alan. He made us feel special and like nothing else mattered apart from us two. The Party Pack was a brilliant addition to our wedding and it really brought the party alive. It especially worked after the “Lean and Bop” dance. Thank you once again Alan for making our day run so smoothly and looking after us. I know I’m not the easiest person to work with but everything I wanted was achieved so thank you very much.

Amelia & Michael

We had booked Alan as our master of ceremonies and DJ for our big day and I could not have asked for more. Alan went above and beyond our expectations! From multiple meetings and an in depth planner to organise the whole day.

On the day Alan brought along his son to help out who couldn’t have been more professional. I was shadowed by Alan all day and,in the evening when Alan was DJing, his son, ensuring that everything was running smoothly and going as planned and that above all I was happy. When I walked into the wedding breakfast room and realised that my venue stylist had missed bits Alan made it his priority to fix it and before I knew it, it was all rectified.

The music throughout the day was perfect in setting the mood, we had so many compliments on the style of music we had playing all day and the evening music was icing on the cake. I cannot recommend Alan enough! Alan offered so many different ideas to make our day unique to us from the advise cards on the tables to our love story before the first dance and involving all our guests. Definitely worth the money!

When my husband and I visited the local wedding fayres, looking for a DJ, but hiring Alan Marshall we got so much more. We got the stress free, relaxed and classy wedding we were hoping for. Alan throughout planning was always professional and enthusiastic, suggesting to us ideas when we were stuck.

No phone call was too much of a hassle and no meeting to discuss questions we had a trouble. The occasional check in message or phone call throughout the planning just to see how things were going was great as well, as it gave it that very personal touch, like we were not just another client. We hired Alan not just for his DJ expertise but to have him as our Master Of Ceremonies for the day as well, and we are so very glad we did. Alan had everything in hand from the start, even when we were delayed due to photos, Alan had arranged with the venue and the photographer so that it would all run smoothly.

Alan and his son Ru, kept us updated throughout the day and would continually check to make sure that my husband and I were ok and if there was anything they could do for us. As well as being a fantastic Master Of Ceremonies throughout the day, Alan is an excellent DJ. I do not believe once throughout the night was the dance floor ever empty. The song choice was great and the finale just the cherry on top.

If we ever had to do it all over again, or was ever asked who we would recommend it would definitely be Alan Marshall. Our wedding day (30/07/2016) was the most spectacular day ever and a large part of that was due to Alan.

Maz & Zac

We got married on 1st July 2016 and can honestly say that our wedding day wouldn’t have been as stress free, relaxed, unique and fun as it was if we hadn’t booked Alan. From the moment we met Alan we knew we wanted him to be a part of our wedding party.

Nothing was too much trouble & the ideas and help he gave us was invaluable. To say Alan kept me calm throughout the process and especially the weeks leading up to the wedding day is an understatement. As part of our booking we opted for our ‘Love Story’, this was a highlight of ours and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Our guests said how different & memorable it was. It was especially nice to hear what myself and my husband had said about each other in the closing statement, this is something neither of us will forget.

As well as being a fantastic Master of Ceremonies Alan was also a great DJ, the choice of songs he played were great and had people dancing all night. It’s been lovely to watch our wedding DVD back and seeing our friends and family having such a great time. If we had to do it all over again there is no doubt that we’d chose Alan. In the words of our guests ‘we love you Alan, we do’ thank you so much for everything, our wedding day was unforgettable and you played a big part in that.

Alan is one of the most genuine, professional and lovely suppliers that we had at our wedding! From the start Alan was always happy to provide us with any support or advice and helped us create the wedding we had always dreamed of!

Nothing was ever too much to ask and our wedding went off without a hitch! Not only was Alan our master of ceremonies but also made sure that everything went smoothly and also provided the entertainment both in the day and the evening.

The little touches made such a difference! Such as the quiz for the wedding breakfast, the advice cards that were read out after the speeches and the music during both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast. He kept us updated throughout the day and always kept us in the loop with how things were going.

The evening music was fantastic and really easy to arrange using Alan’s music database. So many of our guests have commented on Alan and how fantastic our day was. Thank you Alan!!!!!!

Devon & Dave

For our wedding in June 2016, Alan was much more than a DJ & Master of Ceremonies, he was invaluable! From the moment we met Alan, we knew we needed to book him (at very short notice I might add!).

His experience shows and from the first meeting he had us thinking about all the little details that are so important and yet we hadn’t even considered.

He helped us organise the day so well that we were able to focus on enjoying ourselves knowing that we (including our guests) were in good hands – even when everything didn’t quite go to plan on the day! In addition to being the key to ensuring our day was a success, Alan is a genuinely nice person to work with.

He is super friendly, professional, quick to respond to messages and his online playlist made it easy for us to add songs that would help give him an idea of the kind of music we liked. I couldn’t recommend Alan more highly! He and his son really made our day for us and our guests were full of compliments on how approachable and friendly they both were. Just brilliant!

We cannot thank Alan and his son enough for all they did on our Wedding Day.

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.

On the day itself Alan made sure to introduce himself to our Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and all immediate family offering his help should anyone require it.

We have had nothing but compliments from our guests about Alan and the service he provided, not only as an MC but as a fantastic DJ. I also want to say a very big thank you to Alan for checking on my Nan throughout the day, he knew how important it was to me that she was there and it’s this kind of attention to detail that made our day so perfect. Do not hesitate in booking Alan.

The most amazing day ever – From the moment Alan was in my sights as I arrived at my ceremony venue I did not have to think for myself for a single second. Every detail was looked after and managed. We just turned up!

The best surprise my fiancé gave me was secretly booking Alan’s full day service for our big day.  I had done nothing but speak about the amazing work, I had researched, that Alan had done for other couples. My harping paid off!! But my husband will tell you that it didn’t just pay off by hushing me up.

He and I will tell you that of all the suppliers we hired Alan was the most valuable and essential to our day and the best of our monies that we spent. From my experience, my biggest worry as a bride was whether the day would ‘flow’. Would there be any awkward breaks in time?  Would the music be right?  How would we know when and where to do what and in what order? I spent months stressing about it. Alan took every one of my worries and made them disappear – literally. We had an amazing ceremony and seamless transition into the Wedding Breakfast. The speeches (all fully coached by Alan) were warm and fun.

All our guests knew at every point what was happening and what they had to look forward to.  The music was perfect from beginning to end. The most amazing memory from the day – all thanks to Alan – is our Love Story message to one another. Our chance to hear a message from the other of why exactly what we mean to each other. Alan – a massive thanks to both you and Ruadhan.

We chose Alan for all of our wedding entertainment and Master of Ceremonies. He proved to be an integral part of our wedding and we were delighted with how our day went.

From our first meeting, through to the day itself, Alan was available for help and support to design the day we wanted – especially so in the last few weeks leading up to our wedding day! He was always professional, dedicated and passionate about what he does, and gave us many suggestions and ideas to give us the day we wanted. Alan is clearly a very experienced DJ, and our evening entertainment was fantastic with some amazing feedback from our guests.

His choreography for our ceremony, his tasteful and warm announcements throughout the day, and his ability to ensure a smooth flowing, hick-up free day meant that we, the couple, could relax and enjoy the day we had planned with all our guests. We are very grateful for all Alan’s work, and would recommend anyone looking for a bespoke day to fully engage with what Alan can offer and design the day you’re after.

….. from Master of Ceremonies, to DJ, to organiser, to entertainer, just when we thought we had everything covered, Alan would help us remember the smaller details!

Alan and his son gave their all in making our day complete. Their attention to detail on our special day was an experience not to be missed!! Very friendly, helpful and professional from the moment we booked them. He really did make our day..
