We love every testimonial we receive whether it’s a ‘thank you’ card or text, a lovely message on Facebook or a great email. It blows us away when people take the time to write to us and say nice things about what we do.
Jon & Maria’s testimonial genuinely reduced us to tears.
We worked with Jon & Maria for over a year planning the music for the daytime, the wedding breakfast and the evening party. We also made Maria her very own birthday Bowie mix from her favourite David Bowie songs. Finally, Jon & Maria had an idea for a mashup for their last song so some hour were spent in our home studio creating the last tune of the evening.
We drove 200 miles and arrived mid morning to setup and get ready for day ahead. Jon & Maria gave us a great room in the B&B for us to stay over-night so after a quick change and freshen up we were ready for a mammoth day of celebration.
We were invited to the humanist ceremony which was set deep in the woods around the B&B then we all gathered for high tea before the party started and then we DJ’d till the early hours playing music that Jon & Maria had chosen. Their eclectic taste had us going from dub, hip-hop, indie, rock to reggae and electronica. We loved every minute in the company of wonderful people.
The next day we had breakfast with the family said some tearful goodbyes and drove home having made some incredible memories.
Here it is in full with some photographs from the day and night.
“To Karl & Kate”
From the first email correspondence with Karl and Kate we could tell that they were a friendly, passionate team who had a very personal, unique service at the heart of what they do. We quickly discovered they had the same musical interests as us, as they probably do with everybody as they have a wide ranging eclectic taste and the emails going back and forth were like arranging our wedding music with friends.
Over the year that we worked with them it was very enjoyable discussing music and genre’s, picking our music playlist for our wedding and working out how the day was going to go with daytime background music, special songs, particular moments, speeches, first dance, last song and of course, the party playlist. There were not any problems, nothing was too much for Karl and Kate and the whole experience went as smoothly as it could have, the Deckheds customer service and overall experience is truly how every service should be provided, friendly, passionate, personal and professional, especially when it comes to weddings.
Karl and Kate invited us to come and meet them at the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza six months before our wedding which was being held close to home. It was such a nice idea and lovely to meet them before our big day. They were exactly how they came across on the emails and we all got on really well. It was also a great opportunity to have a good chat about music and the wedding.
We actually ended up sending Karl a an 18 hour playlist for the day and a 10 hour playlist for the evening, this would have been a huge amount of work for him but he took it in his stride, encouraged us to send more music if we remembered or discovered it and gave us updates on how much he was enjoying our tunes. He created a 40 minute David Bowie medley for the bride’s birthday to play during evening food and combined 3 tunes for an epic last song of the night. The entire day and night of music was absolutely perfect, geniusly arranged and delivered, everybody loved it!
On the day of the wedding Karl and Kate were brilliant! They were part of the wedding party, chatting with guests, helping out and part of the life and soul of the party. They were so easy to work with and a massive part of making our perfect day so personal and special. There were many musical moments where the right song was played at exactly the right time; tears, laughs, memories and conversation were all shared on our special day as a result. We could not have asked for more from the Deckheds team, truly an experience to be cherished.
