A playlist that seemed to flow effortlessly
Thank you so much to Patrick and Accolade DJs for providing the music for our wedding evening reception at the Elvetham on Saturday 20th April. Patrick was excellent and we would happily recommend him to everyone! From the first email we sent to Patrick enquiring about him DJing at our wedding we felt at ease, we always received prompt replies and if we felt we needed to discuss anything further he would always ring us at a time that suited us. He has excellent communication skills and a kind, caring manner! He asked us to send him in advance a list of the songs or music genres we would like to be played, along with the first dance choice and last song of the night choice. We were allowed to continue adding song choices to the list even up until the day and he was happy to take requests from guests on the night of the wedding! We received a phone call from him a couple of days before the wedding just to confirm we were happy with everything and whether we wanted to make my changes. He did an amazing DJ set on Saturday, we loved all of the music and we had a wonderful time celebrating and partying the night away! Patrick some how managed to incorporate all of our song requests (even the strange ones!) in to a playlist that seemed to flow effortlessly! We had a full dance floor all evening because of Patrick and his amazing music! We have had lots of compliments about the whole day, but in particular guests commented on how much fun the evening was. Since the wedding we have received a lovely email from Patrick with links to the DJ set he played and a link to an album of photos that he took on the night! We were not expecting this so it was a lovely surprise! We would highly recommend Patrick and Accolade DJs to everyone. Many thanks for making our day so special!

We had such a fun night!
We just wanted to send you an email to say how happy we were with your service during our wedding reception. We had such a fun night and our guests said a lot of great things about you! The set up was not too intrusive and the fact you were willing to work with our bizarre and eclectic mix of requests was amazing! We will not hesitate to recommend you on and if you want to use this email on your website you are more than welcome to.

I didn’t leave the dance floor literally all night
A massive thank you from us both for being such a pleasure to work with and for putting together such a wonderful DJ set for our wedding at Hedsor House. I didn’t leave the dance floor literally all night and have had so many compliments on the music. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you in a heartbeat!

We recommend Accolade unreservedly.
We have previously had Patrick as the DJ for my 30th birthday and he was brilliant so when it came to choosing our Wedding DJ there was only one choice. Despite being returning customers, and therefore he already had a pretty good idea of what we might want, we were given fantastic service from the initial email onwards. He came to our house for an initial meeting to discuss what we had in mind for the day. We gave him the venue details and he liaised with them without any input from us. We were keen for the ceremony and wedding breakfast music to be absolutely perfect so when he offered that as an additional service we jumped at it. The wedding ceremony took place in one room, where he set up a smaller scale speaker and equipment for my entry, the music during the ceremony and our exit. The wedding breakfast, speeches and disco was in another room where he set up another area and even used lighting which matched the colour scheme-not something we had thought to ask of him. Just an added little touch. All we had to do in preparation for the ceremony was tell him which songs we wanted for which part and he got the timings spot on. Not easy when we didn't have a rehearsal and one of the bridesmaids walked much faster down the aisle due to nerves. We even had a back up song in case the signing of the register took longer (which it did) and the two were mixed seamlessly. Patrick also provided microphones for the speeches and was able to adjust volumes etc as each was given to ensure the best quality. While we ate there was a constant background music which was subtle and just right for the mood of the room. At the initial meeting we had told him one track for our first dance but then changed our minds a couple of weeks before the day. This was no problem as we had several emails from him in the week before to confirm the requests guests had sent on their RSVPs and our selection of favourite songs. During the evening we requested that the dance floor be full and that's exactly what happened with the excellent playlist he put together. Our and our guests tastes are eclectic and yet the different genres were all included without anything seeming out of place. We even had the exact last track we wanted to finish off our night. As the day and evening developed, there were a couple of announcements that we needed him to make. He did so clearly and without detracting from the dancing. Thank you Patrick. Our wedding music was so important to us and you couldn't have made it better. We recommend Accolade unreservedly and couldn't be more satisfied with the friendly, professional and wonderful service we had from you.
