Full Description
Alan Marshall is the National Wedding DJ of the Year (2019) and with over three decades’ experience working with couples to create their dream wedding days, he understands that every celebration is as unique as the couple themselves. For Alan, it’s more than just about music and dancing. As a DJ and host, it’s about creating and highlighting magical moments that tap into the emotion of the day, for the newlyweds and their loved ones to remember long after the first dance (or Nanna wows everyone with her rendition of YMCA!). It’s about establishing flow using natural transitions, to bring different parts of the day together, without the couple having to worry about what comes next or what needs to be done. Having worked on hundreds of weddings over the last thirty years, Alan prides himself on effortlessly leading the celebrations, authentically and naturally, with all the attention on the real reason everyone is together: celebrating the loved-up couple! In the run-up to the big day, Alan’s on-hand to help with not only planning music choices but also giving reception game ideas, speech advice and even to retell your love story so far (guaranteed to get guests giggling and dabbing their eyes with hankies simultaneously). He loves working with a select number of couples every year to uncover what’s important to them and help them to create a beautiful, memorable wedding day filled with love, laughter and great music! To find out how Alan can help you to create the day of your dreams, contact him today!

Unforgettable Magical Wedding
Alan made our day unforgettable, we are so overwhelmed with how amazing the day went. It was the best day of our lives! And we cannot thank Alan enough. Just knowing Alan was at the venue in the morning making sure everything was ready. He was like a guardian angel looking over us the entire day. The day was faultless the music, the love story, the shoe game, arranging for my husband to serenade me, to getting everyone up dancing. It was all like a dream.

It was a decision we did not regret at all!
Natalie and I got married back in August this year and chose Alan to be our Master of Ceremonies and DJ. It was a decision we did not regret at all! Many of our guests complimented how professional and nice he was throughout the day, which was great to hear. The day was perfect and ran so smoothly; we did not worry about a thing, which is all you can ask for from a Mater of Ceremonies! Alan also had contacts in other related services such as dance floors, photo booths etc which was very handy when organising such an important event. We would definitely recommend Alan to any of our friends getting married in the future! Thanks,​ Alan

Dear Alan, The role you played in the Wedding last Saturday was exceptional. You ensured that everything ran so smoothly and I had nothing but compliments from the Guests about the Master of Ceremonies! Your skills as a DJ are second to none, as there wasn't a moment when the dance floor wasn't in full swing. My personal thanks for the help you gave to me, allowing me the freedom to enjoy the Wedding Day as the Mother of the Bride. All the very best to you and thanks also to Rhu. Kind Regards, Tina

Happy memories
Alan, I wanted to drop you a note to say how much we appreciate everything that you have done for us in the run-up​ to and on our wedding day. The way you led us through the planning, and dealt with our last minute problems and anxieties about the day, I felt so reassured and it all went so smoothly. It was also wonderful in the evening just to relax and have a good time without worrying about what was happening next or what time it was. It is all a bit of a blur and really did go so fast but we had a fantastic time. People have told me how much they enjoyed the day and looking at the first of Nisha's photos all I see is happy faces. Before the day we had started telling people how much we appreciated your help and that everyone needed an Alan in the run-up​ to their wedding, and on the day they saw why. We would have been completely lost without you. If we ever again decide to throw a massive party I'll be calling you first! Rachel
