He made our day magic

After our initial meeting with Alan, we were beyond excited to have him as our master of ceremonies/dj. We fell in love with how extremely creative and bespoke his services were, but even then we could not have prepared ourselves for how much impact his services added to our wedding, how much it elevated each and every cherished moment. We had no idea just how far his role would extend, alan was far more than what is stated on paper, alongside his excellent and professional showmanship skills, he basically ran our wedding day, there were little mistakes on my part with planning with order of the day and without Alan saving the day it could have been disruptive to the general flow and overall picture of the day, Alan worked with The suppliers to solve issues and me and my husband where none the wiser. He just calmly informed us with the solution when the issue was solved. I tell you this story as I know it is such a pressure planning a wedding and making sure all the details are right so you can enjoy your day, to know there is a supplier that sincerely has your best interest at heart, and is a great problem solver is priceless in my opinion, not only was he brilliant on the day he was extremely kind and comforting on the lead up, when it came to any general wedding stress, he offered great advice. We felt at ease with someone that provided for so many couples previously and it was clear he had pretty much seen it all.

Alan and his assistant wefre constantly checking in with us both through the day, prepped us for what was coming next, rescued us when we had to leave for our private vows and a guests were chewing our ears off hehe.

Alan presented us with a planning pack, where we was able to choose each song for ever sentimental moment of the day, not just entrance and the first dances but also signing the register, entrance in to the dinner area ect. Being able to be involved in those decisions made our entire day feel like magic, especially as two people who have a real connection to music. You can have a song that is significant to you both that none of the guests necessarily know the story behind, but both of you know the sentiment and story behind that song. It just elevates the affection in each of those moments.

In our services we choose to include the grand entrance for our wedding party and the true and false game which are services Alan provides. These added so much fun and laughter to the day, sometimes wedding can feel really really formal, these are the perfect things that relaxed our guests and got everyone laughing together. And to top it off a lighthearted way for everyone to get to know our special people more, and to add more nostalgia and playfulness around everyone getting to know us as a couple.

Alan also wrote our love story, where we both sent him indepth but very separate details from our first moments to our most recent moments as a couple and he merged them both together beautifully and read our love story out to all our guests and to us! it was funny, unique and sentimental. The absolute highlight of all the wonderful things he has to offer. Something our guests continue to bring up.

We had so many people say to us that they have never been to a wedding like ours where they felt so much love in the room, and how the day was so revolved around our story and relationship with each other and I think a very large amount of that was down to Alan. So many of our guests raved about him after the event and are still talking about him a month later.

On your wedding day, you have every single person you love on earth in one room, that is a very rare moment that you will likely not experience many times again. They are all there to celebrate you and your love for one another. It's an even rarer of a moment that you get to celebrate finding the person you want to spend all your days with (That's BIG). I could not recommend any one more to assist you in making this monumental milestone celebration it deserves to be. We felt Alan was providing much more than a service, we felt genuine care and affection. I really can't put into words the impact of what he does, you do have to see it to understand the full grandness of it. All I can say is, If your thinking of booking him, don't think twice you will most definitely not regret it.

Just book Alan

The attention to detail and support provided by Alan for our special day was absolutely above and beyond. We had terrible weather and a couple of catering issues that Alan and Andrea took out of our hands and dealt with completely, allowing us to focus on having a good time with our guests! On top of this, the music was fantastic, the sound system and lights really lit up the room. Alan is a top notch DJ and kept us on the dance floor all night long.

If you're still shopping about and thinking about going for a cheaper option, don't, just book a call with Alan. You'll see straight away why he's so good.

Thank you so much Alan and Andrea, you absolutely made our wedding day.

Star supplier!

Alan was our star supplier for our wedding at Bowerchalke Barn and went above and beyond. Alan ensured that I had food and drinks whilst I was busy mingling with guests throughout the day. He also assisted my Mum who fainted during the hot weather which was really appreciated. This was in addition to hosting Master of Ceremony and DJ duties. Alan and his son Raudhan constantly checked that we were happy throughout the course of the day and no request was too much. He was a real hit with the guests too! Helpful, entertaining, created a lot of energry and highly organised - 5* service!

Incredible master of ceremonies and DJ - the most important part of your day!!

What can I say other than Alan is a superstar. He was our DJ and master of ceremonies at our wedding in 2015. Every aspect of the day he knew and had spent enormous amounts of time creating the perfect setting for us and our guests. His jovial and energetic energy really shone through and got everyone up and dancing. He is a Master of his craft and I’d recommend him to anyone who is after the very best in their industry.
Thanks again for all the wonderful memories you helped us create.

Perfect fit for our Wedding!

Alan has created a show that is not easily replicated. His music choice was absolutely spot on, every single song was a banger! Not only did the music keep everyone dancing, the extra features that Alan offered us created a truly magical night. A particular highlight was his 'Love Story' feature, which was great fun to be a part of!

Fantastic master of ceremonies!

When we first set up a meeting with Alan, we weren’t sure whether we needed a master of ceremonies, but we knew we needed an all-day DJ! The rest seemed like a bonus. What I can tell you now is; I genuinely don’t know how smoothly our wedding would have gone without Alan! My now husband went in to set up the decor we’d bought ourselves to find that Alan had already done it!
He ensured everyone knew where they were meant to be & what was happening when.
He ensured I got the canapés that were put aside for us when I realised how hungry I was after barely eating breakfast!
He literally coordinated everything with the venue & everything ran so smoothly.
In terms of music, he made sure that nothing would be played that we either didn’t want. Or that wouldn’t fit, but we gave our guests an option to choose what they wanted through request cards!
Honestly, we’re so pleased that we booked Alan (& definitely glad that he was still available when we had to postpone) for our wedding! He was worth every penny & more!
Highly recommend him to anyone looking to get married! He will make your life so much easier!
Thank you ever so much again, Alan,
Lisa & Dan Allen x

First class!

We cannot thank Alan enough for his part in our wedding. We booked him as an all-day DJ and Master of Ceremonies, and it was our best decision! From the very first zoom call, Alan put us at ease with the knowledge that he would be with us every step of the way, and even with that in mind, he still managed to exceed our expectations. Whenever I was worried about something, he was straight on the phone to walk me through it. He worked with our other suppliers to ensure everything went smoothly on the day. He gave us a wedding planner right after we booked him, which was extremely helpful to look through whenever we got stuck with anything. On the day, Alan and his son Ru were both exceptional! As weddings go, our timings didn't go quite to plan, but they were both there to make everything work! Again, thank you so much! We couldn't recommend Alan highly enough!

Wow, what a service

Wow where to start? We didn't have a typical wedding day, it was a unique venue with multiple suppliers.

When we first spoke to Alan we asked if we could challenge him & if he would be willing to be our celebrant which was something he had never done previous. He took up the challenge excitedly & excelled with his delivery.

His ceremony service was beautiful & so personal which is exactly what we wanted, many of our guests told us afterwards how emotional it was for them. I don't think there was a single dry eye in the room.

In his Master of Ceremonies role he was communicating with all our suppliers & guests whilst checking Leigh & I were happy throughout and where we needed to be next whilst also giving us time to be with our guests. He even accommodated our last minute adjustments!

Alan is an awesome DJ! Wow what an incredible experience, he mixed songs together expertly & was in tune with our guests musical tastes as the evening progressed, we especially enjoyed the 90's rave part.

Hus son Ru was excellent as well. He was communicating with us & Alan throughout. These 2 make a great team. Ru was even on the decks too playing some great tunes!

His services are superb, but Alan is one of nicest and most humble of guys I have ever met. He genuinely cares about your day as much as you do.

We couldn't have asked for anything more, he exceeded our already high expectations & more.

From the bottom of our hearts we cant thank you both enough. The day we wanted wouldn't have been the same without you.
