Spotlight On....Entertainment

No wedding is complete without elements of entertainment; it is essential to keep the day flowing and your guests occupied while you are perhaps having your photographs taken, changing outfits or individually greeting guests.

Entertainment encompasses everything from Photo Booths to DJs and Magicians to Harpists. It’s an ever-growing category as vendors come up with more and more innovative ideas to keep your guests entertained and add fun and interest to your wedding day.

This month we are pleased to place the ‘Spotlight On’ our Professional Members in this entertaining category!



Sometimes you want some peace and quiet and sometimes you want to be entertained! 

Whether your event is indoor or outdoor, large or small we will assist you in finding the perfect entertainment for you and your guests.

Perhaps something or someone quirky and interactive to break the ice, the latest up & coming cabaret performances or bands, through to world renowned artists – our resources are limitless. Have a look at our A2Z for some inspiration (link above). 

Let us know what you have in mind and we will send you some suggestions – all our proposals include photos, full descriptions and MP3’s & video footage where available.


Guy Stevens

Guy has a story from a recent booking to share here that demonstrates just why and how much he enjoys his job!

Guy was pleased to have recently played at Annie & Henry's Wedding Reception in Samoëns near Mont-Blanc, Chamonix. 

After the 600 mile trip from the UK, Guy parked his van in the small town and was pleased to hear an English voice call out "Guy Stevens! ....the party has arrived!"  The venue was a marquee in the grounds of a beautiful traditional chalet on the valley floor. Guy then caught up with the couple to discuss the following day's festivities and do some prep for the lighting install. 

After a good night's rest, Guy headed for the marquee to set the sound and lighting as the client had asked for extra fairy lights, uplighters and a mirror ball.  

After the ceremony and drinks reception, everyone was seated in the marquee and Guy played a rousing theme and announced the ushers, bridesmaids and best men into the marquee to rapturous applause, culminating in the entrance of the Bride & Groom. 

After the meal, Guy provided a radio microphone for the speeches. The Bride and Groom then performed their first dance and the party continued with a full dance floor until late - a fabulous wedding and great memories for everyone!
