If we could give more than five stars out of five we would. John Middleton was our Celebrant, MC and DJ for our wedding on the beach in April 2023. He was there for us every step of the way, from planning, on the day and after the event. He is a master at what he does, listened to the ideas we had and ensured they became more than we could have asked for. The vibe we wanted was relaxed, laid back and fun….John ensured this is what we got. John engaged with our wedding party and guests, got to know them all and ensured they all felt part of the whole day and evening. As a Bride and Groom we feel John has become a friend to us and has helped guide us and reassure us through the crazy times of organising a wedding. Our guests still continue to tell us how impressed they were with John, as are we.
