What is your most memorable wedding?
I would say that every wedding is memorable, But one that sticks out was the Tobias wedding autumn 2019.
I had the wedding booked about two years in advance, So it gave me lots of time to get to know John (Groom) and Weronika (Bride) really well. On the day of the wedding I was performing my Master of Ceremonies and the best man was doing his speech talking about John ( groom ) singing in London on a night out..... All the guests were shocked as John seems really quiet and Weronika had never heard John sing either............ Best man is slagging John asking him to sing just now........ in the back ground I have already lined up Robbie Williams - Angels ( that’s is the song John sang in London )
The best man passed john the mic 🎤 and I pressed play..... No going back for John now...... He sang amazingly, All his guests and his bride sang along with him, It was just a great moment of Joy and it wasn’t rehearsed or thought up before hand.
Just a fantastic way to finish off the speeches, Both John and Weronika still talk about this moment to me now, two years later..

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy every moment, it’s a very quick day. Top tip: once the ceremony is finished and just before the photographer takes you away for your group photos, take 10 minutes away just the both of you somewhere quiet to just be with each other. Priceless.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After booking, I will typical send over our booking form and set up a face to face meeting ( COVID permitting ) usually in a coffee shop or at home, get the couples Vision for their big day and listen to their must haves. Give advice and explain what I bring to the table.
Second face to face meeting take’s place in the venue, this is a great opportunity to walk the couple through the day, talking about everything from where I’ll be standing and what I’ll be saying to set ups of equipment.
I would also meet the wedding coordinator from the venue and give them a copy of all documents ie insurances and certificates.
I am always available to chat or email with the couples when they want.
What is your number one floor-filler?
There are lots I would use depending on the guests and reading the room.
Proud Mary - Tina Turner comes to mind straight away.
Yeah! - Usher .
You’re a superstar - Love inc.
500 miles - The Proclaimers.
