"an was our Wedding DJ and was amazing from even before we booked him. We can't recommend him enough!
His professionalism in his approach to providing a personalised quote really meant he stood out from the rest. The quote itself was also very reasonable.
He was very responsive when we had anything to query in the run-up and we met about a month beforehand where he put our minds at ease knowing the music was in safe hands! At this point we went through what music we wanted at each stage of the day and he demonstrated his knowledge with his very good suggestions and opinions.
Ian not only DJ'd the night but he provided all the music for the rest of the day on an iPad for the venue to just press play, including editing some tracks!
In terms of the night, he kept the dancefloor busy by judging people's reactions to different song types. He did a tremendous job of keeping the evening flowing and everyone commented on what a great night it was!
Thank you so much!"
