The soul doctor!

Like everyone I guess, I've been to many weddings, some good and some bad. I find the ones that were not as enjoyable as others were lacking energy and atmosphere and one of the biggest factors in ... Read more creating a good atmosphere is the music. So when it came to my own wedding I wanted to make sure the atmosphere was going to be the best of any wedding my friends and family had been to and I had to get the best DJ possible. Over a few months I researched many and went to some of their private gigs once I asked their permission. I narrowed the choice down to 5 DJ's and out of those 5, Gareth from Cygnus events really stood out from the 5 gigs. He seamed to be able to take the crowd on a journey through the music choice and flow to the tracks. I was pretty confident I found the right firm for my wedding and on the big day he didn't disappoint. I had high expectations and Gareth over delivered. We had an in person meeting 2 months out and then a skype meeting 3 weeks out and he covered all angles and eventualities with us and then totally wowed the place on the night. A few friends have asked me for the details so I hope you get some referrals out of our wedding Gareth. Thanks once again for making sure our day was special and memorable.
