    Amazing Wedding!

    We had the most amazing experience with Devoted Events and would recommend to everyone!
    From the very first communication until the very last the whole team were very professional, responsive and flexible. When we had to postpone earlier in the year they made everything so easy and worry free. They checked in with us and made sure in the run up to the day we were happy with everything.
    Jimmy was fantastic, the dance floor was packed all night from start to finish and we had so many compliments of what a great night it was. Everything was perfect from the entrance into the reception until the last dance with a fun game of Mr & Mrs thrown in too! He listened to my vision of creating a nightclub vibe and really excelled! All the equipment was of a really high quality the photobooth, dance floor, lights...I could go on and on!
    Thank you again for really making our wedding a night to remember!!

    Devoted Events's reply:

    That's so lovely to read thank you Laura and really makes what we do feel even more rewarding. It was a great party and you were such a treat to work with. We are delighted you & David had the day you dreamed of and honoured you chose us to be involved. Congratulations again to you both and thank you so much for the kind words. Best wishes, Jimmy

    Wow!! Absolutely brilliant.

    Thank you to Devoted Events and Jimmy for making my wedding reception perfect.

    From the 1st meeting I knew Jimmy would be my DJ. He was so professional and down to earth and was happy to answer any questions I had.
    Everyone commented on how brilliant Jimmy was and how the dance floor was never empty!
    If you’re looking for a great reasonably priced DJ, you will mot be disappointed!!

    Thank you again to Jimmy & Devoted Events it’s a 10/10 from us!

    Thank you both so much for the lovely review and it really was pleasure to be involved in your day. Throughout the process it was a treat to deal with you and I really appreciate your hospitality in having me seated with your guests whilst hosting the daytime.

    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

    Devoted Events's reply:

    That's really lovely to read and very much appreciated. It was an honour not only to be part of your day at Mulberry House but get to know you & John over the course of preparations and on the day. Thank you so much for asking me to play a part. I hope to see you at an event again sometime soon and wish you both every happiness. Kind regards, Jimmy

    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.

    Devoted Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Danyella. It was an honour to be involved in yours & James' day and to get to know you over the last few years. It was a fantastic wedding with great people and lots of laughs so that's what it's all about. Thank you for choosing us and I hope you're having an amazing time on honeymoon. Best wishes, Jimmy

    Fantastic service

    Devoted events are fantastic, we used them for our wedding last week, they were so approachable and friendly, their online service is really easy to use and really helps you to make a play list that is perfect for you. The photo booth was fantastic we got to choose a template that fitted with our theme which was great and the whole experience was just so relaxed, there was no stress or pressure they really knew what they were doing. I cannot recommend them enough.

    Devoted Events's reply:

    Thank you Jodie. We are delighted you are happy with everything and it was such a treat to be involved in yours & Sean's day at Mulberry House. We really appreciate your feedback and wish you both every happiness for the future. Thank you again for choosing us. Best wishes, Jimmy

    Sergio was AMAZING!!!

    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!
    Thank you so much Sergio!! Rebecca and George x

    Devoted Events's reply:

    That's really lovely to hear, thank you Rebecca. Sergio will be delighted when I pass on your review and thank you so much for sharing it. As with us all, he takes great pride in what he does and is a hugely valuable member of our team so I know how much it will mean to him. Thank you again to you & George for choosing us as part of your entertainment at the stunning Parklands Quendon Hall. Congratulations to you both and all the very best for the future. Jimmy

    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.

    Devoted Events's reply:

    Thank you Steve

    It was great to be part of yours & Allison’s day at Pontlands Park and lovely to meet you both. We really appreciate your feedback and are delighted you were happy with everything.

    Best wishes

    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!

    Devoted Events's reply:

    That's wonderful to read thank you Jennifer. It was such a fantastic day to be involved in for yours & Arnaud's wedding with great people and a Brilliant atmosphere. I actually played your first dance as a request at last night's wedding and The Darkness' "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" will always take me back to your first dance :)

    Caroline says hi and we hope our paths cross again soon. Thank you for choosing us and very best wishes to you both. Jimmy

    Only the best

    I would highly recommend this couple. Jimmy was fantastic as DJ and also great at introducing everyone. He also played some games to get the party going. The music was great and everyone said to us it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Jimmy’s wife Caroline was fantastic on the photo booth, they also done 120 Krispy Kreme donuts for us. If you are booking devoted events don’t scrimp and scrape go for the full works. You won’t regret it. Lots of love Ron & Elaine.

    Devoted Events's reply:

    Thank you Ron & Elaine

    It was a great party and Elaine’s son’s best man speech was epic! We’re so pleased you are happy with everything and it was lovely for Caroline & I to have the privilege of getting to know you both.

    Best wishes

    Brilliant company, great services and warm staff

    It's been a little while since my engagement party and I have been meaning to leave a review for this brilliant company.

    I have had nothing but great experiences with them - from the initial contact all the way through to their service on the night.

    They helped make our night one to remember - and everyone commented on how much they liked the DJ/song selection and the photobooth.

    The contact I had with them was nothing but prompt, professional and thorough.

    I would definitely recommend them to others - and even gave their details on to a family member who wanted to book them for their wedding.

    I would love to consider them for my own wedding (whenever that is, and if it is in the UK!)

    If you're in any doubt, speak to them and see how they can help - all are so lovely and informative. I can see how they are award-winning!

    Thanks Devoted Events for being part of our evening :)

    Devoted Events's reply:

    That's lovely of you to leave such feedback Lauren and we couldn't be happier that you are so pleased with everything. It really was our pleasure to be involved in your celebrations at The Old Regent Ballroom. I have passed on your review to Caroline who hosted your photo booth and will do so straight away to your DJ, Sam, also.

    We love weddings and everything around them and would be absolutely honoured if chosen for your big day too! Thank you again and very best wishes to you & Jamie :)
