Recommended Wedding Suppliers

A helpful guide for you in finding the ultimate dream wedding supplier team

 

So you’re in the middle of planning your wedding and you need some recommendations for wedding suppliers in South Wales. I’ve carefully curated a small directory below sharing with you some of my favourite suppliers that I get to work with a lot.

 

Each of these suppliers share a similar ethos and vibe to me; Putting you first and wanting to deliver the very best for you. Therefore you can guarantee each of these suppliers will make your wedding incredible. I’ve been lucky to work with each of these suppliers, they are here completely on merit and based on my own recommendation.

Wedding Entertainment & Bands

 

The Session Band

 

These guys mean business! The Session should be on every band short list. They are incredibly talented and they tailor the music to the need of the dance floor and really keep the party going. They always have the most fun while playing too which is great and helps in keeping the energy through the room.

 

Fonz & The Poet

 

They are a four piece party funk and pop band playing around the South Wales and the South West. These guys always keep the dance floor full and that’s exactly what you need at your wedding. Fonz and the Poet are one of the bands that I’ve had the pleasure of being on the same supplier list the most.

 

MusicHQ

 

If you’re looking for a band for your wedding, well MusicHQ is probably the only place you need to visit. With a wealth of signed bands on board you can take the time to listen to each band sing a selection of music for you to have an idea of the vibes and type of music you could be dancing to at your wedding.

 

Adam Reeves Magician

 

There’s not many magicians that can fit right in with guests and get instant laughs and excitement. Adam is incredibly popular and always tries to keep his performances fresh and entertaining. I often work with Adam at weddings in South Wales and there’s a reason for that. You should really consider having Adam for during the ‘lul hour’ which is between the speeches and the first dance. 

 

Ultrabooth Photobooths

 

A Photo Booth at a wedding is incredibly popular option for entertaining your guests in the evening. Ultrabooth keep reinventing themselves and the idea of a photo booth overall. They have become the leading and THE standout business in photo booths. If you’re considering entertaining your guests, Ultrabooth should be at your wedding.

Videographers

Steve Ratcliffe wedding films and videographer

Steve Ratcliffe Films

 

Steve is hands down, the nicest man in the industry. Steve and I have worked a lot together and it’s for good reason, it works!

So if you’re looking for a wedding videographer, Steve is your guy.

Katy is another recommended videographer that I’ve had the pleasure of working with regularly.
