WIA 2016 The Wedding Industry Awards

 

A few months ago, we were proud to announce that we had made the regional shortlist for this year’s WIA 2016 Wedding Industry Awards. Now, we thought that it would be a nice idea to take the time to reflect upon the testimonials and comments that we received at the time – including comments about why couples chose to work with us in the first place, and how we scored in comparison to other industry experts.

All of the comments that we received were collected independently of us, and at the end of the process the votes were added up and then sent to the judges who decided upon the final result.

Although we did not win the award in our region this year, we are still immensely proud of the fact that we were shortlisted in the first place – as there are many wonderful entertainment providers from our area in the WIA 2016 awards who we were listed alongside. To be shortlisted for the second year running is something that we are ecstatic about, and the main reason for this is because of the fact that we were nominated by the very people who we work so hard for – our couples.

We work tirelessly to make sure that we are able to create the perfect day for our couples from start to finish, so we are honoured to know that so many of them took the time to cast their vote for us after we had worked with them on the run up to their happy day.

We have decided to share some of the comments that we received, as it truly helps to sum up exactly why we do this job, and what it means to us. Thank you again for your vote, and we hope that you enjoy reading the comments.

General Comments (in random order)

From the minute we met Alan we knew he was the Master of Ceremonies for us. He came across very confident which instantly put us at ease as we knew he would absolutely deliver the day & evening that we had in mind. The communication was brilliant & there was nothing that was too much trouble, even when we decided to do the love story at the last minute. I was diagnosed with cancer 4 weeks before the wedding & I honestly couldn’t have put the final touches together without Alan’s help.
Mrs Vanessa Bailey

Alan was amazing. he added the sparkle and uniqueness that we desperately wanted for our wedding. He was just amazing.
Mrs Clare Forbes-Facer (Forbes)

Alan provided a first class service on our big day. He delivered everything we asked without fuss oir delay. A superb and professional service – he picked up the pieces swiftly after another DJ let us down.
Mrs Gina Fletcher

Alan was amazing not only on the day but at calming my nerves in the run up to our big day!! So glad he was there to share our day. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family. He helped make our day as special as it was.
Mrs Rebecca Martin (Putman)

Alan was the most amazing master of ceremonies and DJ we could have asked for ! He was there all day and took the pressure off us he was great we really cannot fault him
Mrs Charlotte Dover (Richards)

Alan was amazing throughout the whole process of arranging our wedding and myself and my husband would have been lost without him The care he took to make things personal to us was so much more than I could have ever wished for We were so impressed by his knowledge and guidance of wedding traditions, music, ideas and planning and we always knew we could come to him for any advice We can not thank him enough for the huge part he played in our special day
Mrs Emma Tidbury (Broomfield)

My wedding was amazing, most of it down to Alan. He helped us with all the organising and was always offering advice throughout the planning of the wedding, and made our day go smoothly. If it wasn’t for Alan the wedding would not of been the same.
Mrs Joanne Jury (Ruta)

Alan made our wedding the best it could be; he was essential to the running of the entire day, let alone providing an excellent master of ceremonies and DJ service. His professionalism and experience are second to none and we honestly could not have asked for a better person to be a vital part of our day. My wife and I believe that the day would not have been anywhere near as successful had Alan not been there from start to finish to ensure that everybody had a memorable time!
Mr Niki Fuller

Alan made it possible to enjoy our day without having to worry about details like other suppliers arriving etc. He requested we gave them all his number in advance and consequently everything flowed really well, without us or our guests hardly even noticing comings and goings. He played everything requested and liaised with the venue event manager regarding all aspects of our day.

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.
Mr Tom Page

Alan’s expertise was invaluable during the preparations and also on the day of our wedding. He allowed us to chose so much of the music we preferred, that we had a wonderful afternoon and evening, every track was one we loved and we received many compliments from our friends and family on our choice of dj. Alan was well presented, prompt, courteous and friendly, and it felt as though a friend was with us, rather than just an outsider doing a disco. Alan’s services are worth every penny spent.
Mrs Jennifer Hagyard (Nicholson)

We were 100% happy with the quality of service that Alan gave us. He was professional throughout and we loved working with him up to our wedding day. We would recommend him to anyone wanting to add something a little special to their wedding day.

Alan was fantastic, the day ran so smoothly and everyone had a fantastic time. We used Alan for our master of ceremonies and also DJ, his service was excellent and it was all tailored to what we wanted for our wedding.
Mrs Emma Proffitt-White

Myself and my husband both think that Alan deserves this award 100%. He made our wedding day so special and different from any other wedding.

Why They Booked (in random order)

Because he offered a unique service and had the experience and expertise you need to make the day run smoothly. And he did, he made it work seamlessly and the added elements of our story really added to the day and made everyone feel involved in the romance and history. The day ran beautifully and I know that couldn’t have happened without Alan. P.s the web form to log songs we liked and didn’t want played was awesome!
Mrs Clare Forbes-Facer (Forbes)

We met Alan at warbrook wedding fair. We loved how confident he was that he was very flexible on what we wanted for our special day. nothing was too much trouble. We had a great experience with Alan and would definitely use Alan again!
Mrs Sophie Griffiths (cain)

Recommendations and confidence after our first Skype meeting
Mr Tom Page

A lot of people in the wedding industry are just after your money whereas alan made you feel at ease talked us through everything and more. He put us at ease and made us trust him instantly ! His selection of music was also a massive bonus!
Mrs Charlotte Dover (Richards)

Alan had fantastic reviews from previous weddings he’d done. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money. Friendly, confident, great communicator. He ticked all the boxes.
Mrs Vanessa Bailey

The services he provides.
Anonymous

He was friendly and reliable from day one, really helped put us at ease.
Mrs Rebecca Martin (Putman)

We both warmed to him straight away at the wedding fayre, he wasn’t pushy, or ‘in your face’ and what he was able to offer was a far better and more personalised service than other wedding DJ’s we had previously met at these events. After the first meeting with Alan at our home, we both decided that Alan’s service was just what we needed and it took a lot of the stress of the planning out.
Mrs Jennifer Hagyard (Nicholson)

After a recommendation by our wedding venue, we mentioned Alan to our photographers (Jacqui Marie Photography) who had noting but kind words to say about him and the wonderful service he provides. After that, we were sold!
Mr Niki Fuller

From our first contact with Alan I knew he was the person I wanted to work with as he offers so much more than being a ‘Dj’ I felt from day one we were in safe hands
Mrs Emma Tidbury (Broomfield)

Professional, good reviews online, full service that can’t be found elsewhere.
Mrs Gina Fletcher

Recommendation from previous clients and subsequent meeting with Alan made us feel that our wedding day would be enhanced by his services.
Anonymous

Recommended from the venue, I’m so glad we did book Alan.
Mrs Joanne Jury (Ruta)

After meeting him the first time we thought he was very confident in his work and someone who we could trust with our big day.
Mrs Emma Proffitt-White
