Perfection from start to end

What can I say about Devoted Events & Jimmy in particular that hasn’t been said a thousand times over? From our initial contact 2+ years ago to the day of and after the wedding the communication and care has been exceptional! Jimmy is a true gentleman who couldn’t do enough for us, from last minute changes to music and sourcing seemingly impossible music to find! We were the clueless couple
That put our trust in him and his years of experience and we were not disappointed in the slightest! All my guests were so complimentary of all the details that came from Devoted events! I can’t recommend them enough! I want to do it all again!

Cannot Recommend Enough!

Jimmy made our day! The guests all loved Jimmy and he kept our day organised with the hosting package. The games was one of the highlights of the day, especially Mr and Mrs! The music was great and we loved having the dancefloor. So many of our guests have complimented Jimmy and can't stop talking about him. Thank you!!!

Worth every cent and best experience

We used Devoted Events for our wedding recently for their audio book phone booth. The coordination and correspondence leading up to the wedding was painless and everyone was super accommodating. They went out of their way to make any changes we requested and were on time setting up the phone booth for our special day. I would highly recommend them and worth every cent spent.

Amazing and fun DJ!

Jim was amazing to work with, he totally understood the vibe we wanted at our wedding and absolutely delivered! He included all the songs and extras we asked for, particularly for our first dance, and was great fun! On the lead up to our wedding communication was also great so we would definitely recommend! My guests also commented on what a great DJ we had! :)

Utterly amazing!

We used Jimmy at Devoted events for our all day wedding hosting and evening, he was absolutely amazing! He was there every step of the way, from the first phone call, to assisting on the day. Without Jimmy our day would not have been the same. He was so organised, he knew exactly what we wanted, and he most certainly delivered. The music, the games, the effects: smoke floor and sparklers for our first dance, the doughnut tower, the 360 Photo Booth… (and much more) it was all absolutely perfect! Jimmy and Caroline weren’t just suppliers for our day, they made our day! We have had so many friends and family comment on how good their set up was, and how amazing it all was, Jimmy is funny, dedicated, professional, and I am just so so happy that we found him! He really got the party going and was there for both of us, and our guests throughout the day! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for making the best day of our lives!

Wedding success

I can honestly say that Devoted Events (Jimmy) made our day absolutely perfect. We didn't have to worry about a thing, from the announcements to the ceremony music right through to the evening disco. He also added some fun into the mix with a Bride/Groom game which raised many laughs. This company is truly professional and the attention to detail is amazing.
Jimmy ensured that the day was totally ours and wasn't intrusive in any way.
Thank you all for making our special day even more special xxx

Wedding whole day package

What an amazing experience. Jimmy went above and beyond for our wedding. It truly was a highly professional experience from beginning through to the end. Everyone commented on how amazing the dj was and even had people saying they wanted him for their functions. We will certainly go nowhere else for a dj in the future. Thankyou Jimmy for being part of our special day.

We had Sergio for our wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall and we can not recommend him enough!
We had a call with Sergio a few days before and he was so personable, friendly and just made us feel so comfortable and excited for the night!
Oh the day, he really got the wedding party going and just read the crowd so well! Best DJ by far and would book him again in a heartbeat!

Wedding Day at Pontlands park

We had a fantastic day topped off with a wonderful evening party largely down to the Devoted Events team. Jimmy was a superb DJ who got the feel of the audience just right keeping the dance floor occupied all night. The Krispy Kreme Donut tower instead of a cake was a huge success. We can't praise their preparation and helpfulness too highly. Definitely would recommend their services to anyone. Thanks a lot.

Bordeaux wedding party

Devoted Events came to Bordeaux to do our wedding party - we lucked out with such an amazing team. They provided lawn games, lights, the photo booth and of course, amazing music. Came across Jimmy at a friend's wedding. His company then did my sister's wedding in London and then ours the following year. He and his team are very professional, on it and a total joy to work with. Thanks so much Jimmy and Caroline for making our day so memorable!
