Amazing performer

Matthew is amazing, I used him for a friends Hen do where he played for just 12 woman, and surpassed my expectations, i booked him there on the spot for my wedding. Every single person at my wedding commented on how amazing he was, and continued to talk about him afterwards.
Matthew is a generally lovely guy, he's so approachable and chatty, it was like having our friend perform.
He played our aisle song, leaving the church, and performed throughout our day. He played requests but also read the room and absolutely nailed the whole thing.
He totally made our wedding, and I tell everyone about him.

Amazingly talented musician

Matt was so amazing from start to finish. I first met Matt at my sisters hen do in July where he played brilliantly. I knew then that we wanted him to be part of our Wedding Day. Matt was so professional, he had great communication and came back to us with any questions we might have. He learnt songs that we requested specially and he did a fantastic job. So many of our friends and family have commented on how fabulous his music and singing was in the lead up to the ceremony as well. He also sang our song for walking down the aisle. He sent us a recording of this so we could work out our timings too. If you are looking for an acoustic singer, look no further - get him booked in!! Xxx

Thank you

Amazing 🤩 would highly recommend

Matthew was so professional throughout, his communication was spot on from start to end. Our guests loved him on our wedding day and so many people said what an amazing voice he had. He let us choose our own songs from his repertoire too which made the day all that more personal. We would highly recommend him for any event and we will definitely be telling all our friends and family about him for when they tie the knot too. Thank you so much Matthew, love Hannah & Nick (Grangefields wedding 31.3.23)

Becky and Jack’s Wedding

Matt was amazing and I am so glad he was part of our wedding day! He was super easy to get in touch with and so approachable. He played 2 live sets for us and even learnt our first dance which was amazing! He then DJ’d for us afterwards and we danced the night away with some excellent songs choices! Everyone commented on how amazing he was and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Jade and Graham wedding

We absolutely loved having Matthew play 2 setlists of live music at our wedding and doing the Dj section afterwards. Matthew was so friendly from start to finish and super calm and helpful. He had some great suggestions on the day and was flexible when we needed to change the order of events. He did a brilliant version of our first dance song and even learnt one of our favourites for us to dance to later on as well. Would definitely recommend Matthew. He was also really great with the little kids putting requests in all night 😁! Thank you so much!! Jade & Graham

Tremendous!!

Matthew was an absolute pleasure to deal with from beginning to end, such a gentleman and happy to help with everything! That was a bonus, that wasn’t what we booked him for!
We booked him for his music and he was next level class, I literally think every guest mentioned to Amy and I how great this guy was!
Would absolutely recommend Matthew to anyone, as the title says, tremendous!

We cannot recommend Matthew enough....

Matthew was warm and professional from booking enquiry, to lights out, on the wedding day, we could honestly not recommend him & his band enough.
There wasn't a single worry on the run up to the wedding as Matthew had everything covered, he liaised with the venue directly so we didn't have to be concerned with being a middle man in sorting out finer details and h&s checks, and, nothing was to much trouble.
The day ran so smoothly and everyone commented on how wonderful he was both throughout the day and then in the evening with the band. We even had a power outage for a short period within the evening reception and the way they improvised was just incredible.
You will not be disappointed in booking Matthew for your wedding, we would not change a thing.
Thank you so much again!

Perfect for our wedding

Matthew was absolutely amazing at our wedding back in June, we really couldn't have found anyone better or more fitting for the role.

Matthew himself is very professional, very organized but also very friendly, relaxed and happy to work with you and accommodate your plans, simply a great guy with great talent who fit into our day perfectly.

He has great and useful package deals to fit any wedding of your liking. For us we chose to have him play some sets with the guitar and sing and then man a DJ booth for us kayer on in the night. We found this to be extremely helpful when planning our wedding as we didn't need to find anyone else other than Matthew for the whole days music.

We had a wedding venue with outdoor space where he played and sang over the grounds creating such a nice warm and fun atmosphere as people talked and played games.

He even learnt our first dance song free of charge and played it for us which was amazing!

He then played indoor later on in the night and also did the DJ booth for us. Throughout the night people kept coming over to us saying how much they love him and now we can't go to another wedding without looking at the people doing the music and saying "it's not Matthew Turner though is it"

I honestly couldn't reccomend enough! Thankyou Matthew for all your help with our wedding, Ben and Esther

The best! Would recommend to anyone :)

Would recommend Matthew to anyone! He played at our wedding from before the first guests arrived right through to when it was just the two of us left on the dance floor at the end of the night. He learned our aisle songs especially for us and even changed the lyrics of our favourite song to create the most perfect personalised first dance. So many of our guests said how lucy they loved the music and Matthew created the perfect vibe all day long - romantic, chilled, upbeat, party classics.. he always knew the perfect song to play at any moment! We also booked Ben (Marshall Turner duo) to join in the evening which created a perfect band vibe for everyone to dance to, and then Matthew dj-ed for us afterwards. Honestly cannot recommend him enough!!! He was the first supplier we booked and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone :)

Give this guy a record deal!

Not only was Matthew an incredible musician - it was one of the best live performances I've ever seen. He played with Ben M and Max C - they were a great addition.

Matthews set list, crowd management, stage presence, vocal quality were all 10/10. Quite simply, I cannot offer a single improvement. It was world class and a real highlight for our wedding. I cannot recommend enough.

Make sure you book in advance!

Excellent!

Matt performed at our wedding and was absolutely fantastic. He created a great atmosphere and got everyone on the dancefloor. He was so great with us when we had to rearrange our wedding 3 times due to covid, and he even helped our guests to get home when they had an issue with the taxi!
Helped to make our day even more amazing- would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Bloody awesome

Booked Matthew for our wedding, he preformed our first dance live and even better, the weather was perfect. He worked with us up till the very end to make sure we had everything we wanted. I’ve not heard this much praise for one person of so many people. He was a massive hit with the guests. Would highly recommend
