Thanks again Gemma and Karl (Married August 2013 at Cortijo Bravo)

Hello Ian, We would just like to say a huge thank you to you for making our Wedding reception an evening to remember. The whole evening was tailored superbly to ensure everyone had the most enjoyable time. The music, your singing swing set and little extra quirky and funny touches were great. All of our guests have told us that you were the best wedding entertainer that they had every seen, and the choice of music ensured that everyone was on the dance floor for the whole evening. The high heels did not last long for the ladies and some of the men !! (hehe) An absolutely fabulous evening enjoyed by all!.

We booked Ian to DJ our wedding in Nerja, Spain in September. Being that we are from the States and a majority of the weddings in Nerja are Irish we weren't sure if this would impact the style or vibe of the reception. We need not have doubted! Ian was fantastic! From the moment the music started to the very end he kept our guests entertained and on the dance floor. He went above and beyond the norm, bringing out props that enticed our guests even further. Overall we couldn't ask for anything better than what it was, he truly exceeded our expectations.

Hey there! Intended to do this ages ago, but been so busy. "Where do I start....... We got married in Marbella on 14th sep 2013. Picking my DJ was one of the easiest tasks I had to organise and I am so glad I choose Ian. He was there to meet guests arriving at the ceremony, was there to put me at ease, he hosted the whole day perfectly making it run so smoothly, he sang AMAZINGLY and let us dance the night away til the small hours of the morning. From the youngest to the oldest guests (my 80 years old grannie) at our wedding every single person had a ball and that was thanks to Ian". Meant every word! Thanks again!

Hi Jo/Ian, Just wanted to say a big thank you for throwing such a great party at our wedding! We all loved it, I think you managed to please just about everyone with the music, my dad especially! The guitar playing went down very well and has created some great memories for us all. Everything was greatly appreciated, from getting me a mojito when the cocktail bar had closed to lending us your speaker for our party the next day! I have no regrets about changing my wedding day to hire you :-) it was brilliant having you a part of our big day. Kindest Regards.

We could not have asked for more you were absolutely fantastic both in terms of the entertainment and the attention you gave us as MC, we didn't have to worry about a thing and our guests had an absolute ball. Thank you so much.

Hi Ian. We wanted to drop you an email to say a massive thank you! You are worth your weight in gold for what you did at our wedding! Not only was the music incredible and perfect for the mood that we had throughout the night, but you also coordinated a lot of fun times and served drinks when we were in need! We had the perfect day for us and have so many fantastic memories of the experience! Thank you so much for contributing to our special day and being such a fantastic sport! All the best.

Hello. We have just returned from our honeymoon and would just like to say one final thank you for all your hard work and efforts in making our evening reception so memorable. It was such good fun and everyone really had a great night. They can't stop talking about it and for some of the girls they were struggling with sore legs the next day after so much dancing. Thanks again.

Ian Im finally getting around to thanking you for doing the most amazing job at my wedding on July 2nd in The Sunset Beach Club. Amazing is the word used by most of my guests in describing your performance on the evening and I'd like to reiterate that. You were superb. You got my friends and family doing things that I didnt think they were capable of and I suspect they didnt think themselves capable either. Youre terrific at what you do and Im so glad that I chose you above the other options. We had a brilliant night with some pretty cool memories caught on dvd for posterity. Thanks again. Regards

Hi Ian, I just wanted to thank you for making our wedding as amazing as it was! We had such a great day and we're so grateful you came to the rescue last minute and were there all day. I think it was fate that that happened because i don't think it would have been the same without you there during the ceremony, drinks reception and dinner too! We had so many compliments about the music in the evening too. A lot of people pointed out that there was not one bad song and how everyone was up dancing all night, when usually people are sat down most of the time at weddings! Best day/night of our life....thanks again and all the best for the future. Kind regards,

Hi Ian and Jo, Once again thank you so much for making our wedding the amazing day it was! Everyone loved it! Lauren and Daniel Yeomans – 29th june Papagayos We booked Ian Preston for MC, Rat Pack Singing and DJ- he was amazing!!! From his banter with the guests to all the extra surprises (I wont spoil it incase you book him!) I cannot fault him. I didn’t even provide Ian with a playlist but he just worked from the guests reaction on what to play and got it spot on. He is definitely the best entertainer I have ever seen at a wedding- anywhere!

Hi Ian! Just wanted to drop you a quick email before we head off on honeymoon to say a huge thank you! You were absolutely amazing on Saturday. All the guests kept asking where I found you! From start to finish we could not of wished for anything better from you. The way you worked with all the guests and knew exactly what people liked was fantastic. I will be filling out Sonyas feedback form but if you have anything similar or somewhere on your website where I can let people know they can't have a wedding without you just let me know! Thank you again!

Hi Ian. I just want to personally thank you for a fabulous job you did for us at our wedding. We have had so may comments from guests about how fantastic you was and I couldn't agree more. Absolutely fabulous mate. I honestly could not recommend you enough for the fantastic and professional job you did absolutely worth every penny. Andrea has asked whether the man that filmed you had any video of the wedding at all? As we would love to see some of the footage and if he caught any of the ceremony we would happily purchase a copy from him? Again thank you mate for looking after everything. Amazing Job. It was such a special day for us mate. I will do the post (Facebook) it would be my pleasure. U was amazing and deserve the credit you get. Top top man.

we had nothing to worry about. Ian had the place dancing like crazy. It was fantastic. Ian did a marvellous job entertaining and he is more than just a DJ – plenty of games and craic on the night…. From then on it was the usual shenanigans at an Irish party – dancing and drinking into the small hours.

Hi Ian, Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for a wonderful day we had and doing the impossible to get to Nerja ;) You are definitely one of the best entertainers ever, loved every song you played and Never danced so much in my life. The guitar play for the groom and best man was the highlight of the night. Thanks again Ian!

Hi Ian Firstly deepest apologies for not being in touch sooner! We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for your fabulous music and entertainment at our wedding. We really could not have hoped for a better day and all of the guests have been singing your praises.. They all thought you were brilliant so thanks. One of my highlights was when you gave the musical instruments to the 'older' guests aka marks aunties and uncles and got them to 'play' to the gambler ... The tears were running down my face.. You really could not have picked a better table. Marks sisters are going to a wedding in Marbella next month that you are playing at so they are really looking forward to that!! Hope the summer is going well and that you are busy? Thanks again.

We have just had our wedding in Nerja (Spain) and Ian was our DJ or more accurately our entertainer. From start to finish Ian was a pleasure to work with. He discussed our music with us before the wedding including first/ last dance and some in between but having only been given a brief idea of what we liked he provided the best night of our lives. His DJ skills mixed with the odd song from himself were perfect in every way and every guest remarked on how the DJ was brilliant, playing into the early hours and catering for all. He was involved throughout and was very engaging to all. A must have for any evening entertainment.

Ian ticks all the boxes and will do music to suit all the guests, he can cater for all ages, tastes...he ticks the live music box, as he sings, and sings well! and also djs, so the whole package. Im the first one to say you need a band at a wedding but this was before i saw Ian do his set! You wouldnt miss a band if you book Ian, and at least with Ian you can get all the music you want - whereas with a band they can only play the songs on their set list. Ian can sing a rat pack song or galway girl one minute and go on to play a Rihanna song straight after it. Having such a wide variety of songs to sing / play is something no other musician can offer. The best thing is he plays by ear on the night, he can judge a crowd well - play it down if he sees everyone wants to chill a bit after the meal and then big it up when they want to party. He never sticks to one play list, and can chop and change on the night, as he sees fit. He takes requests and will do as much as possible to please the guests. He is also willing to discuss the music with the couple, he can call them and go over what they want, and more importantly dont want...if there is any part of his "usual" set that they dont want, thats not a problem, he can adjust it around their wishes. The MC from meal, swing set and dj is the best package as Ian is there from the start of the meal providing the background music, setting the scene..He introduces the speeches, puts the top table at ease, introduces the cutting of the cake and plays music for that, it all makes a huge difference. He does the rounds of the tables chatting to everyone, asking them what music they like. He is very chatty, friendly, approachable, and by the way he works the crowd, he breaks the ice very early on, so the minute the meal is over everyone is ready to party straightaway and hit the dance floor. This is quite unique as sometimes it can take up to an hour to get people on the dance floor when its a regular band / musician who just turn up after the meal, out of the blue and start playing. That extra work that Ian puts in makes a huge difference to how the rest of the wedding day will pan out. After the food, the music is the next most important part of the wedding day. So I always tell the couples to put in a decent budget for the music but tell them that by booking Ian for everything - they can save money, rather than booking a band / musician and DJ separate.

There is nothing more important than getting the party going at a wedding and I have genuinely never seen anyone do this better than Ian Preston. A complete professional, Ian´s attitude makes him a pleasure to work with. He gets to know the crowd and tailors his music and service to fit with their needs. His MCing is also something I really recommend; a way to keep the day flowing and guiding the couple and their guests through the day. His Swing set is always a hit for all the different generations and his DJing skills are second to none. As planners, we always look forward to a wedding that Ian is at as we know everyone is going to have a great time

As a wedding planner, there is a lot of pressure on me on the wedding day, but when I know Ian is booked to perform at a wedding, I know the pressure will ease once I get guests back to the venue as he goes above and beyond to make guests feel comfortable. Ian is a true professional and I can rely on him 100%. My clients, and their guests have always raved about Ian as a singer, DJ and MC. Apart from the fact that the man can sing, he also looks the part! I always recommend him to my clients and I will continue doing so until I or he retires.
