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.

 

2017 Wedding Industry Awards, Highly Commended

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.

Award Winning Wedding DJ, Alan Marshall receiving award

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.

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)
