John was a fantastic part of our day! He was everybody's highlight of the whole day. He thoroughly kept us entertained and was a brilliant ice-breaker. I cannot commend john highly enough! If you are on the fence then you should definitely hire John - you won't regret or forget the experience!

This was a wonderful extra as part of our wedding day! John made such an effort with all our guests and even went the extra mile in helping me in the run up to the day. He was fantastic and all my guests spoke about him for weeks to come.
