General Comments

Gary was so much more than a wedding DJ; he gave us brilliant ideas, helped us to plan the order of the day, and was utterly sympathetic to the style that we were aiming for. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for us, the day would not have been the same without his input both before and after the event. If I could go back in time I would not change a single thing. All of our guests gave very positive feedback, each picking out their own personal favourite part of Gary’s ideas.

Naomi Gunn

Gary was an absolutely fantastic host for our wedding day. Everything ran as smoothly as it should. Gary provided a fun filled evening packed with added extras and a great range of music. I relied on Gary to choose the majority of our music and he delivered all evening. Great work and even the build up planning running up to the big day was fantastic. Great support all the way.

Richard Atkinson

At least half of guests said that Gary made the day. He single handedly made the day run smoothly with his amazing personality and organisation. He made us all laugh, dance and have a great day. I would not hesitate recommending Gary for any event or using him in the future.

Mark Slater

Gary was brilliant from the first time we met him. I can’t tell you how many people came up to us to tell us how good he was. We had the whole day wedding service where Gary not only DJ’d brilliantly but also acted as a Master of Ceremonies. I dont know how we’d have managed to organise everyone on the day without Gary’s help. He also did a brilliant job of incorporating my taste in music into the proceedings! 10 out of 10 – I recommend Gary to anyone who asks.

Joshua Shieds

Gary is an amazing DJ and ’party host’ and truly deserves to win this award. He had our whole day under control and put us at ease with his friendly persona. He made the day fun, personal and engaging. All my family and friends have commented on how lovely he was and how good at his job he is. He makes weddings so unique to the couple which makes it so special. We had no worries with Gary being our master of ceremonies. It allowed us to fully relax and enjoy our special day.

Sarah Demosthenis

Amazing!! We couldn’t have asked for more. Gary went above and beyond. So many great ideas which made our wedding even more special it wouldn’t have been the day it was without him. Our guests couldn’t compliment him more, he was fun and enthusiastic played great music and we loved it. If we could do it all again we wouldn’t be choosing anyone but Gary.

Melissa Norton (Jones)

Gary took charge of our wedding reception and was faultless in aiding/guiding the venues staff through the day. We have received many compliments regarding Gary and his whole approach/setup. My wife and I had organised a first dance with a twist involving a montage of different songs to dance too, Gary arranged all the music piecing it together seamlessly. The dance went great! Throughout the day Gary mingled with our guests, making everyone feel at ease. A great day had by all

Scott Uniacke

Gary was great in the lead up to our day and on the day itself. We had so many comments on how good our MC/DJ was. Gary provides so many options without pushing you to choose more extras. You can have as much or as little as you want (although we would definitely recommend the photo booth on the dance floor!)

Lisa Fudio (Peaple)

Gary was absolutely incredible from the intial meeting to on the day. He went above and beyond to make our day extra special. Not only did he help set up the venue, he made the evening a truly memorable experience for all our guests. He incorporated our love story, and gave me the chance to do a bridal dj set which got everyone onto the dance floor. At the end of the evening he helped initiate the sparkler guard of honour and even took photos for us! Not something he had to do, was a great help!

Katie Powell (Lovell)

We couldn’t have wished for a better guy than Gary. He made us both feel so relaxed and really took the stress out of planning a wedding. He gave us everything we could have wanted and more. Our day run so smoothly because he went above and beyond. From supplying up lighting to a facebook page where our guests requested songs beforehand to helping push my Nan in her wheelchair and call peoples names for photographs. Our day went perfectly and we have had so many compliments regarding Gary.

Charlotte Heaney

Gary helped us with music, carried out full Master of ceremonies throughout the wedding and went out of his way to ensure my friend in Australia was part of the wedding through Skype. Gary stands out, calms the atmosphere and all our guest commended Gary on his performance throughout the day and evening. Gary kept the day exciting and fun doing more than we expected and ensured all our guests were engaged within the day. He encouraged us to have the wedding we wanted and helped to deliver this

Daniella Kendall (Foord)

From the moment we met Gary we knew that he had something very special to offer. From the moment we arrived at our venue Gary took control of EVERYTHING. we wanted a traditional wedding with a few twists and boy did Gary deliver. My wife and I had to worry about nothing and became guests at our own event. Gary was worth every penny. Our guests are still talking about our wedding as being the best thing ever and unique. Thanks Gary you were our wedding!!

James Sturdey

I originally had reservations over hiring a wedding DJ and being subjected the usual ’wedding songs’, but I needn’t have had any worries, Gary was absolutely faultless. He was open to our requests and followed these as well as adding in his own touches which fitted perfectly to our day. He was the ultimate professional and we had great feedback from our guests. He was a welcomed addition to our day and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to future brides and grooms!

Anna Turner

From start to finish Gary was excellent – attentive, funny very relaxing To be around. We were so happy to have him run the day and some of his ideas felt so unique and really made the day even more memorable. In the run-up to the wedding, we had various meetings /communications and he was so helpful. we would massively recommend him to any couple getting married and he deserves all the rewards coming to him.

James Burgess

Gary was amazing from the start, from the moment of our first meeting he made us feel at ease. Gary was contactable throughout the planning of our wedding and never failed to answer any questions we had. Gary was beyond amazing on the day and made me feel like a guest at my own wedding, he guided everyone to photos, dinner and kept everyone in the loop of where and when they had to be somewhere. Gary interacted with the guests even the children and made it fun for all.

Lisa Sutton (Bury)

that we needed Gary for our big day!”

just want a DJ then plug in your iPod. Gary’s enthusiasm and communication with my wife

and I, leading up to our BIG DAY were second to none. Gary made us feel like superstars.

Highlights included The Walk ons,Our Love story, The table quiz and Gary’s box of

Tomfoolery!! Gary provided us with a stress free wedding , great value for money and a

lifetime of unique memories.”

Mrs Kirstyn Edwards (Pragnell)

“The venue had a resident dj, but we also wanted a master of ceremonies plus

entertainment. Pricing all these things up, it came out pretty expensive coupled with the

idea of too many people to cross reference with. Gary came along as the complete package,

1 guy, 3 bases covered. I wouldn’t hesitate in booking him for my next wedding o ( jokes!) A

truly great guy, offering an even better service!”

Mr Scott Uniacke

“DJ and MOC in one. Happy chappy who makes u smile just talking to him. He offered the

complete service which took the hassle out of having to look elsewhere.”

Mrs Daniella Kendall (Foord)

Being awarded National Wedding DJ Of The Year at The Wedding Industry Awards has been the highlight of my career. I still have to pinch myself to make sure it’s real.
