Wedding Planners - They live weddings and choose the best DJs

The Pink Pumpkin wedding design company
Dear Mitch, Just a little note to say a huge great thank you for providing the most amazing party at our wedding. I have never seen a dancefloor so full for so long, and you are amazing at what you do – hands down the best DJ I have ever worked with! We have had so many comments about how fun the wedding was, and how much of a party everyone had; a lot of which is down to you, so thank you, thank you, thank you! With love, Kim and Chara.

Always Andri
Just wanted a say a big thank you on behalf of Bernadette, Michael and myself for all your hard work on Saturday. Bernadette and Michael were very happy, they said it was an amazing day and they’d had such a good time. It was an absolute pleasure working with you too and great to see so many people on the dance floor the whole evening, you could tell they didn’t want it to end- always a good sign of a great DJ and party!

‘As the director of my own event management and production company, I know what it takes to make a good party. I’ve got no hesitation in booking or recommending Mitch for corporate and private clients. Honestly, he’s the best party DJ I know.

Dan and Katy Goode @ Chateau Cazenac , Dordogne, France – Via Kate and Beth at Get Married In France.

‘We were confident Mitch would not be your typical mobile DJ (something we really wanted to avoid), we were right. Mitch made the party / evening and every single guest left saying the same thing; they had never heard better music at any wedding or had so much fun. Mitch ensured the dance floor stayed not only full, but absolutely packed all night long. In all seriousness Mitch blew us away, we didn’t stop smiling all night long it could not have been any better. He put the icing on what truly was a perfect day.’

[email to Dan from his best Man] ‘Dan, Just a quick note to say that your wedding was awesome – the setting was beautiful and I have not heard music that good at a wedding ever (any chance of the playlist?)’

Sofia & Rafael Caporale @ The Caledonian Club Belgravia

_ …and the floor was bouncing
We heard about Mitch by chance, our wedding venue (the Caledonian Club in Belgravia) had him as their main recommendation. So we contacted him and immediately liked him. His approach was simple…meet up before the wedding, get to know each other, make suggestions, talk about the order of things, etc. And the rest we left in his hands. Boy, he didn’t disappoint. He got the crowd onto the dancefloor and didn’t let them go again until the Club threw us out. And everyone still remembers, how the dancefloor was literally and physically bouncing. I also should mention that he was a great help in bringing the speeches to the people with his remote microphones. Mitch helped a special day becoming even more unforgettable. Thank you for that. _

Nick and Nadia Evans @ Princess Victoria Pub, Shepherds Bush
‘We hired Mitch having been to two weddings of close friends at which Mitch had DJ’d which were frankly two of the best parties we have ever been to. Everyone dancing solidly all night. He did not disappoint. I need say little more than that we had over 5 hours of music and the dance floor was full all night. He is worth every penny. We have plenty of friends who are really into their music and had so many of them come up to us on the night asking where we had found the DJ. Music is one of the most important elements at any wedding. So my suggestion … book Mitch, relax in the knowledge that it is sorted, and get on with organising the rest of the day. Nick Evans

Tim and Sarah @ family home on the Jurassic Coast, Dorset
‘Hi Mitch, Just a note to say a million thanks for making our wedding day so
amazing. Everyone was on the dancefloor all night! The memories of us both doing the running man and all the oldies on the dancefloor raving to Sir Mixalot will stay with us forever. We hope to see you again soon at one of our mates weddings or for
another family celebration! Preferably at
[their family house – see picture] as it is the perfect party location. In the meantime take care and party on. Love, Tim and Sarah’

Laura and Matt Chapman @ The Dairy Waddesdon
Mitch Matthews is worth every single penny…book him! Mitch was fantastic from the moment we booked him for our wedding at The Dairy Waddesdon. Not only was he extremly professional, but such great fun, friendly and he really loves what he does. Mitch even drove over 100 miles to meet us & discuss our party thus ensuring he was able to give us the best party ever – and it truly was. Many of our guests asked who the DJ was and also commented that it was the best wedding party they’d ever been to. Highly recommended, worth every penny, Mitch will give you an event you and your guests will never forget.

Mike and Cathrine @ Christs Hospital West Sussex
I can’t recommend Mitch highly enough. Friendly, helpful and accommodating, he went out of his way to help us plan the music for our evening bash, and saved us so much stress it’s unbelievable. Everyone had a brilliant time thanks to him – he played a perfect mix of stuff that got everyone on the dancefloor, and he reacts superbly to what his audience wants. He is really easy to get in touch with and is lovely and reassuring with you as the stress in the build-up to the big day kicks in! And he even gets you up DJing yourself if you so wish! We have had many, many compliments about the music Mitch played, with some guests saying it was the best wedding do they’ve ever been to. Mitch is the man for you!

‘Getting people up on a dance floor is easy; keeping them there is a different story. That’s why we chose Mitch for our after party at The Royal Albert Hall. During the evening Tom Jones set them up, but Mitch knocked them down! What a DJj, what a night; I was so impressed I booked him again the next year and for my own wedding.’

Hayley and Phil @ Swynford Paddocks Newmarket
Aside from saying our vows, I have to say that Mitch’s DJing was the highlight of our day. We had guests traveling from as far away as Canada and we really wanted to show them a good time! We were really nervous about the DJ which was included in our venue wedding package – having been at several drab wedding receptions where the DJ’s repertoire had consisted of ‘it’s raining men’ and ‘oops up side your head’ with a meager set of lights and dodgy dicky bow. We wanted someone with an edge who would really get the party going – and Mitch did that 110%!! He read our guests and played music which got everyone on the dancefloor – his energy and enthusiasm for music are incredible and he did us proud. Since our wedding, 3 of my friends have got engaged and asked for Mitches details and I just wish we had another celebration so we could us him again. To any bride/groom out there who is worrying about this important wedding ingredient – I would strongly recommend Mitch Matthews – he won’t let you down and will go out of his way to ensure your experience is personal and stress free. He is well worth the price and earns every penny of it!

Dr’s Neil and Karen Robinson @ The Mandarin Oriental Knightsbridge
‘It might sound silly, but what you definitely don’t want for your wedding DJ is a bloke that just turns up and plays records. What you really want, is someone like Mitch. Or in fact, actual Mitch. Not only is Mitch one of the coolest, most interesting people you’ll be lucky enough to meet, he will go miles out of his way to make sure he understands what is important for you and your guests…and then deliver it. He is incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about what he does. Which means, he’s brilliant at it! Unbelievably brilliant. For Mitch, helping you to make your day special is not his job, it’s his vocation and he’d be more upset than you if it all went wrong! He knows music (and before you laugh, speak to some of the other cowboy DJs out there….my God!) and he knows how to get people moving. We had so much fun, as did all our guests and I honestly can not recall a moment when the dancefloor was empty [6 hour DJ set]. If you read this and think I’m daft then phone Mitch and speak to him. You’ll immediately begin to understand how choosing the right person can be so important for all aspects of your wedding planning. I am without sufficient superlatives to describe Mitch adequately. I’ll merely finish by saying thank you Mitch….you are a gentleman and an absolute legend.’

Ben and Carolyn Guss @ Castlecombe Manor house Wiltshire
‘When you’re planning a wedding, there are so many things to think about and prepare, but booking Mitch was one of the smartest decisions we made. He was incredibly well prepared and professional. His idea of getting our friends to do some DJing on the night was inspired; they thought it was absolutely brilliant and loved being up behind the decks.
Mitch’s ability to know what tracks to play at each stage of the night kept everyone on the dance floor, no matter how tired we were feeling. Every one of our friends said he was the best DJ they had ever seen. Mitch’s sense of humor and fun-loving attitude set the tone of the evening and made for a most memorable wedding. Thank you Mitch!’

Thomas and Chrissy Harding @ Family home marquee on the banks of the upper Thames.
‘We were torn between hiring a band or a dj for our wedding, so we did both. The band performed brilliantly and were a hard act to follow, but Mitch’s skills kept people dancing when the band took a break and kept them on the dance floor well into the early hours. A perfect end to a fantastic day. Many thanks Mitch.’
Thomas is the defence correspondent for The Daily Telegraph.

Lyn and Michael Tomlinson @ The Lanesborough Hyde park – London’s most expensive hotel.
‘Mitch got the music absolutely perfectly balanced to show our taste in music, but also keep people up and dancing all night. Our friends thought he was the best DJ they had heard, so it was wonderful.

Jez and Kate O’Brien @ One Great George Street Westminster
‘Mitch was great to work with right from the outset. His personality
and creativity made everything fun and hassle free. His suggestion to get our friends to do a bit of the djing really made our guests feel involved, created a real party atmosphere and helped us to make our wedding such a fun evening. We would definitely recommend Mitch to anyone who loves music, dancing and generally enjoying themselves!’

Gavin and Claire @ Chilston Park Kent
‘With our wedding being on New Years Eve, it was all about the party and everyone having a good time. With this is mind a good DJ was essential! Having rang round a few, Mitch was the first that put us at ease and backed up the talk with a great service. He was the only one that would gladly meet with us before the event rather than just having a ‘consultation’ over the phone. In the event we met up a number of times beforehand including at the venue to decide on the best options to really get the party going. Mitch really sought to understand our music tastes and that of our guests. The result was a fantastic night with cracking music and lots of our guests commending Mitch. The dance floor was full all night and everyone had smiles from ear to ear. I would not hesitate in booking Mitch again for any event and would gladly recommend him to anyone.’

Dr Nima and Orla Hashimi @ Chateau La Bourdaisiere Loire valley
‘Hi Mitch, Orla and I are back from our honeymoon and we had a wonderful time. I just wanted to thank you so much for your skills and help for our wedding. Your services went above and beyond what they needed to. You also have a very personal and genuine approach to your clients I feel, which makes the experience that extra bit special. Best wishes to you and Roz in the future, Nima & Orla’

Charlie and Steve @ Templeton Manor London
_’One of the best decisions of our wedding was Mitch. It was really important to us that we had a good party and got everyone dancing and that is exactly what Mitch provided. He spent time with us beforehand working out what we and our guests would like and his whole aim was getting the dancefloor full and bouncing all night. And what a night! I am still getting emails from our guests about the choice of tunes and their delight! I can’t recommend Mitch enough.’

[later email received from Charlie]- Truly awesome night (although I’m now regretting doing air guitar on my knees)_

Matt and Suzanne Norman @ The Tythe Barn Oxfordshire
_’We had an amazing day! The evening was brilliant, not least because Mitch put such a lot into it. He is such a nice guy… he was so friendly, a great laugh, and played a great mix; loads of folk have commented on the excellent mix of music. He threw in loads from our play list and kept away from the typical cheese and wedding songs, much to our relief.
Mitch really went for it, getting each and every guest up on the dance floor for our first dance, which is exactly what we requested.
The evening disco something we were both a little anxious about, having been to some dire and lacklustre receptions over the years, but ours was fabulous and a perfect party send off – very many thanks.’_

Mr and Mrs Burman @ Charingworth Manor, Gloucestershire
Liam and I would like to send out a MASSIVE thank you to Mitch for the amazing job he did at our Wedding reception last month. We had a brilliant evening and all our guests said what an excellent DJ Mitch was. We gave Mitch hardly any info about the music we liked [Their choice, not mine.] and the selection of music that he pulled out the bag was just superb!!!!I am so glad that we gave him artistic license as it worked a treat and he played a massive array of music that suited all ages and ranges. Mitch is no mobile disco and is without doubt an entertainer of the highest degree and I would recommend him to everyone that wants the best party. He really was brilliant.

Georgina Freeland @ Great Linford Lakes Buckinghamshire
Mitch was undoubtedly the star of my wedding!!! He had a massively hard challenge as we gave him 70 tunes and wanted every one to feature – HE WAS AMAZING! Everyone was shaking his hand and saying it’s the best nights entertainment they’d had in years! Seriously fantastic DJ, anyone thinking of booking Mitch – think no more – he is quality beyond belief!! Thank you again.

Mr and Mrs Syalon @ Clumber Park Hotel Nottinghamshire
I just wanted to contact you to let you know just how amazing we and the rest of the wedding guests thought Mitch was. I will be contacting him personally to let him know just how perfect he made our wedding. He completely listened to me and Dom when he came to visit us and I really felt like he personaliised our wedding and played the tunes and created the vibe that we had wished for. I know it was my own wedding so may be biased but I have never been to a wedding or a party where the atmosphere was so electric on the dance floor, the floor was never ever empty and to say he ended it on a high is an understatement. We have had so many people comment on him and I am just so pleased we had him for our wedding. I would definitely recommend him and hope other couples have the same experience that we had.

Roz and Tom Rule @ The Tithe Barn Petersfield Hampshire

_Party of the Century!
I was so lucky to find Mitch when I was searching for a wedding DJ. I wanted someone to create a party, not set up a playlist I had given them. I found Mitch through a google search. His website promises a rocking dancefloor and he really didn’t disappoint! Mitch provided an excellent service right from the first point of contact – he’s friendly, warm and professional. He kept in touch throughout the run up to the wedding and I could tell he really cared that my guests and I all had an amazing time. And we did! We started the party right after the dinner and he got my friends and family on the dancefloor straight away. My friends have commented that often they like a break from dancing but Mitch kept playing amazing tune after amazing tune and they just couldn’t drag themselves away. Mitch built and built the party until exactly the right point and it ended in an almight crescendo! Thanks so much Mitch – can’t wait for you to DJ for me again!_

Sushila and Andy @ The Barn Chelmsford
_The best wedding decision you will ever make..
Our priorities for our wedding were food, drink and music, so there is no way we would have settled for just any DJ. Luckily we found Mitch! He has boundless and infectious enthusiasm for what he does and he’s really committed to giving you a great party. This means that as well as inspiring you about what a great day you’re going to have, he also reassures you that you don’t need to worry about whether people will have a good time at the reception he’s got it sorted! Mitch did us proud on the day. He navigated his way around our eclectic music selection, played our favourite tunes but still managed to throw in a few pefectly-judged surprises. He was spot-on at reading the crowd, keeping pretty much everyone on the dancefloor, pretty much all night. And he cleverly waited until we were just drunk enough to agree to dance to Time of My Life¦ somehow not making it feel like it was the cheesiest moment in the world. Mitch, I salute you! Since the wedding, I’ve had friends and family of all ages tell me what a great party it was with one family friend telling me it was the highlight of his year! A great guy and a fantastic DJ you’d be a fool not to book Mitch._
