Looking back at 2013

Well the end to 2013 has finally come round and what an amazing year it’s been for Mighty Fine Entertainment! 2013 certainly started off with a bang when Mighty Fine Entertainment were presented with the award for being the ‘Best Wedding DJs in the UK’ at the 2013 Wedding Industry Awards at a glittering ceremony at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London. The award is a great honour and privilege as it is awarded primarily based on past couples’ feedback and scoring and we would like to thank all the fantastic couples who voted for us (and for putting their faith in us in the first place)!

With the anticipation of what 2014 may bring we wanted to share some of our wonderful memories from the last year; we know we have the best jobs in the world, especially when we have the privilege of being part of so many special weddings and meeting some truly lovely couples – a massive thank you to those who chose Mighty Fine Entertainment to be their wedding DJ in 2013 – the pleasure was all ours!

2013 had some funny moments and when John played at a wedding at the reputedly haunted The Crown in Amersham little did he realise that he was going to get the chance to sleep in the haunted room.  The Crown was originally an old coaching inn dating back to the 16th century or 17th century and on several occasions the apparition of a figure has apparently been seen leaning against one of the old posts in the bar room when it has been empty of customers. There are further reports of a uniformed maid appearing in one of the bedrooms and of a woman climbing the stairs and going through a door. John being a true professional said that he had the best night’s sleep he’d had in ages so thank you so much to Angela and Steve for providing a room for him and his driver!

We had great pleasure in welcoming Marcus into the team of Mighty Fine wedding DJs last year and he has been a great asset to the company from the off. Although our youngest DJ, Marcus brings a mountain of experience and passion – he is also our go-to person regarding equipment and technical know-how through his relationship with London’s best DJ shop, West End DJ.

We really enjoyed Brides The Show, which was held at Battersea Evolution, providing us with the opportunity to meet lots of new brides and grooms as well as catch-up with old friends from the wedding industry (it was heaven being next to the Wild About Flowers stand just for the outstanding aroma). Brides The Show also gave us real feel for the forthcoming trends in 2014 in both wedding DJ and event production services. We also got to meet the winners of a competition we ran with Brides The Show & Heart FM, where the prize was an all-day wedding DJ package – congratulations to Dee Dee & Ned and we look forward to being part of your special day this year!!

Mighty Fine Entertainment were chosen to provide the music and entertainment for the launch of David’s Bridal in the UK at their new superstore at Westfield Stratford. The event was extremely well attended by bridal couples and many members of the wedding community. Shoppers were invited to celebrations throughout the day; a fashion show, live music, an official ribbon cutting by the mayor as well as exclusive giveaways, offers and freebies and was a huge success for all concerned.

We have been delighted to have been confirmed as the recommended wedding DJ supplier at a few new venues in 2013, including Four Seasons Park Lane, St Michael’s Manor, Chiswick House & Gardens, Kings Place and Trafalgar Tavern (and have a few more top-secret announcements to make as the year progresses). We look forward to delivering high quality wedding DJ services to these prestigious venues for many years to come.

We always enjoy venturing into new pastures and Mighty Fine were delighted to have the opportunity in 2013 to work in some new venues such as The Connaught, Home House, Clock Barn, Goodwood House, Town Hall Hotel, The Langham all of which were a pleasure as the teams at these venues really know their stuff and are the epitomy of professionalism.

A BIG thank you to our regular venues, where our wedding DJs have blown the roof off on many many occasions this year – Stoke Place, Great Fosters, The Andaz, The Zetter, The Olde Bell, Mandarin Oriental, Dyrham Park and The Berkeley. We look forward to doing more of the same in 2014.

The year ended on a massive high as we were awarded “Best Wedding DJs in London & the South East” for the second year running at the 2014 Wedding Industry Awards – fingers, toes and eyes are crossed when the national winner is announced on the 15th January at the awards ceremony, once again at the Bloomsbury Ballroom

Once again we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone we have worked with and met along the way in 2013 – we really do enjoy the wonderful and positive wedding industry and helping couples achieve their dream weddings!

Wishing everybody a successful, joyous and happy 2014!
