What people say about Sandy Sounds Wedding Entertainment
Just a wee note to say thank you for being part of our special day.
Your entertainment was perfect and we received many compliments for it. The combination
of Ceili dancing, games and disco was exactly what we were looking for and the flexibility to
change between them was fantastic.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and were very impressed with your professionalism but also how friendly and approachable
you both were from when we first met. We both felt like we knew you, which helped us to relax and enjoy our
reception. We would highly recommend you to others without hesitation.
Lynne & Michael, Galgorm Manor
Hi again Sandy and many apologies for taking so long to properly thank you for the part you played in our special day,
particularly since- as we reminisced on our anniversary last month- it was one of the big highlights.
The children's entertainment you provided was a great warm-up- the kids clearly enjoyed the games and balloon modelling
you did with them and the adults enjoyed watching them get involved and have so much fun. You played a great selection
of music that appealed to both young and old- the little request cards you handed out on which our guests could add their
own personal messages was a lovely touch.
On top of that, you were a fantastic hostess-very flexible when it came to working
around the hotel's arrangements, accomodating when it came to a last-minute change of song, friendly as you went round greeting
our guests at the start of the evening and, perhaps most importantly, a lot of fun! In fact, many of our guests commented to
us afterward of how much they enjoyed your entertainment and company.
We wish you all the best in the future and trust that you will be able to provide many other couples, their family and friends
with a magical evening to remember.
Greg & Alison, The Templeton
We are so delighted to have found Sandy Sounds online, as we so much wanted a Ceili! The added bonus
was to discover that by booking you the package included 5 Star Disco with Paul! What an amazing team!
We came up trumps with the two of you and had the platinum package!! We trust you are both well and
are so delighted to have met you and won't forget your wonderful input in making our wedding day so
much fun for everyone!
Sandy you did an amazing job, from mixing our very own Titanic first dance to even choreographing it!
We were so excited about doing our first dance and with the surprise ceili at the end of it for our
guests! We had such fun practicing the dance in secret so as not to spoil the surprise! It was easy
to talk to you about our expectations for the evening and the choice of the musical genres and your
excellent experience and flexibility was the perfect balance.
We wanted to let you know that we were so impressed by your professionalism. You arrived very punctual
and you looked so well presented, it was so reassuring and you made us feel confident that you had
everything in hand . The personal touches were really special from the beautiful wedding card, introducing
yourselves to all our guests, spending time getting to know them and asking for their requests. Everyone
commented on how welcoming and lovely this was.
We were so amazed by the transformation of the room for the evening reception, the lighting and the special
effects were incredible! Even down to the little finishing touches of coordinating to our wedding colour scheme!
You really took care of every detail! You have a dream of how your perfect wedding evening should be but you
and Paul superceded all our expectations!! From our Titanic first dance, music, ceili and games, Sandy you
did an amazing job! All our guests had such a fun time and said it was the first wedding they had been to
where there was so much guest particaption!! I believe you are now both an international success because
you are the talk of all the guests with news going to England,Australia, Columbia, Sri Lanka, Austria, Canada,
USA, Thailand and Taiwan! Thank you so much to Paul for his wonderful camera and video shots capturing all our
memories which we will treasure!!
Lots of love and very best wishes to you both
Jeremy & Valerie, Malone Lodge
We just wanted to
write and thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives
You were a pleasure to work with and everything we wanted you did. Many of our guests said how good you were,
and we are confident our day would not have run so smoothly, had it not been for your input.
Many thanks for the photos and the Ceilidh dancing video - they are great. We don't have any other photos of
the evening dancing, so these are very much appreciated. Seeing them brings back happy memories of a
We've had so many comments from people about how much they enjoyed the day and how good they thought you were.
Of all the things we organised for the wedding we can honestly say that the best decision of all, by far, was
to book you as our wedding disco and to ask you to be our MC. Brilliant! Thanks
Paul & Sam, Ardglass
I hope you're well!
We had a great honeymoon thanks - just got back on Tuesday! Had
a look at the photos - they're great! It's such a nice idea that you
took photos as there are a lot of moments which were easy to miss! The little request
cards were also lovely the way they were personalised with our names on them!
Thank you so much again for doing such a great job at our wedding -
all our guests really enjoyed themselves and we had many compliments on
our great DJ - we'll definitely be recommending you!
All the best
Ruth & Ryan, Stormont Hotel
sorry this took so long but below is our testomony
sandy, we had such a wonderful day and being a dj myself, i
know how important it is to get it right, not only did you
get it right, you made it.
you merged our families
together who didn't know each other, the caliah dancing
broke the ice and the games melted it. having you for the
whole day was more than value for money. you were worth
with a day as important as our wedding
or anyone who has a wedding, the money you spend on
everything from your flowers to your cake, dress etc, just
as important and in many cases the make or break is the
entertainment, it rounds everything off.
around and from dealing with you from the start, i just knew
i found a hidden gem.....you proved me right.
cannot thank you enough for what was the best days of our
lives......i'll never forget our day and never forget "sandy
i know we took over a year to write this...in
between, we have a new addition, a wee boy called jaidon !
thanks a million,
Leedon & Debra, The Old Inn
Just an email to say thank you so much for a
wonderful night, you really made our night with the games
and music. We thought our crowd would of been a bit more
adventureous but none the less we had a ball.
very big thank you to Paul for taking photos during the
evening, looking forward to have a giggle at them.
All our love
Gary & Danielle Fluke
Thanks for that Sandy
- I have posted them to my facebook page for everyone to see
Thank you so much for a great night. We had a wonderful
time. People are still talking to me about the entertainment
- They all loved it.
If anyone ever asked me to recommend a DJ - Your name would
be the only one I would give.
Hope you are well
Lynn & Chris, La Mon Hotel
Stuart and I are just back from our honeymoon and I wanted
to write to say thank you for the great job that you did at
our wedding on August 14th. We had a brilliant evening and
the entertainment was perfect! Everyone enjoyed the ceilidh
and the disco music was just right - lots of fun but not too
loud so that people could still have conversations.
Thanks again, and if you need any references I'd be happy to
With best wishes,
Jennie and Stuart, Clandeboye Lodge, Bangor

Many thanks for your email! I can only say that we had a fantastic night and it could not have been better!
Sandy you are a true pro. A lot of my family and friends were talking about how good you were and able to keep the entertainment flowing!
I will certainly be recommending your services to my friends.
My only wish is that I could do it all again!
Marguerite & Staale, The Old Inn, Crawfordsburn
First of all thanks so much for taking the time & effort to take the pics which is such a nice touch.
They are really great ! I have sent them on to my family & Bridesmaids.
Anyway I will miss our little e mail chats. You have been more than just a service as you are such a genuinely nice person .
Didn't actually read the e mail you sent me the day before the Wedding until now. That was very kind of you as well.
Thank you so very much for the absolutely important part you played in making our day so special.
Everybody said they really enjoyed the day & even that it was the best wedding they had ever been to !
Olivia, my little 2 yr old niece over in Lowestoft looks at the photos & talks all the time about the dancing : )
All the very best

Dear Paul and Sandy
We had a fantastic time and
Sandy was a terrific hit with everyone. The photos
certainly show how much everyone enjoyed themself and we
have forwarded the link to all our friends and family.
All the mums and dads really appreciated the Chldrens
Hour and the kids were thrilled with Sandy's
entertainment - in fact the adults also thoroughly
enjoyed "walking 500 miles with the Proclaimers" very
professionally supported bySandy's willing helpers!
Sandy helped complete
our special day with a fun evening that was enjoyed by
young and old(er) !

Sandy, thanks for providing us with some brilliant
entertainment. You really helped capture the spirit
that we wanted for our wedding - relaxed fun with
friends and family - and you were such an integral
part of the evening for everybody.
Thanks for checking
about Georgia's clip. I think if I don't let it go
online she might attack me so please, by all means
Let me know when it's
up there and, again, thanks for the show!

Nicola and Paddy, Wedding
Reception, Clandeboye Lodge Hotel, Bangor, NI
WOW what a night !!! You were the absolute bee's
knee's !!!!!!!! Everyone keeps telling us how fantastic the 'DJ' was
and the kids thought the balloons were brilliant, you’re so
good...... You are very well suited to your job Sandy. I can't
believe we even got my dad up dancing!! Well thank you once again
from both of us for a terrific evening, you will be highly
recommended to everyone we know and everyone our friends know
Zoe and Dill
Thank you for the wonderful entertainment you
provided us with for my
stepdaughters wedding. The guests have not really stopped talking
about it yet. We were very impressed with the additional
entertainment for the children, and especially commend you for
keeping the young ones amused, no easy task. I did like the touch of
the well chosen pieces of music to individually introduce the
wedding party for the speeches, although I will be having words with
the bride about the tune chosen for me, least said the better.
A wonderful and very enjoyable afternoon and evening was had by all,
and I really feel you added that little extra touch that made a
special day even more so. Do you have every song ever recorded? It
certainly seemed so as you seem to easily be able to find any and
every request that was presented to you. I feel you also need a
merit for diplomacy, for your compliments to all the “karaoke”
participants. Sandy a big thank you from my wife and myself, not to
mention the bride and groom, I would happily recommend your services
to anyone, for any occasion, and need soon to talk to you about my
intended celebrations for my 65th
Phill (father of the bride)
Without a doubt Sandy made our Wedding a fantastic
and memorable day. Nothing was too much trouble from keeping the
kids entertained before dinner to even mixing a special version of
my wife's favourite song. We were extremly impressed with the
attention to detail and the planning that she put into our event,
ensuring that the music that she played was to our taste and that
the lighting matched our colour scheme!! We have already recommended
Sandy to family and friends and would have no hesitation in booking
Sandy for any event that we may hold in the future.
Toby and Nicola Whitford
Thank you so much for helping with our wedding - and
making our evening so
successful. We had such a fantastic time, and I'm sure our guests
say the same. Thanks also for taking the time to meet us before the
- it seemed like you really understood what we were looking for,
even if we
weren't good at explaining ourselves! We recognised so many of the
as being on our 'requested' list which was brilliant. Our wedding
was on the
Friday, I danced so much, my feet still hurt the following
Thanks again for everything you did for us.. we send you our best
successful Christmas - I'm sure you'll be lovely and busy - and
definitely be in touch for our next celebration.
Jan & Bob
Great and friendly service covering all our music needs/requests,
kept our guest on there feet all night dancing, and was a fantastic
way to finish our special day thanks "Sandy Sounds"
Darren and Kerry Kitchener
Poem specially written by father of the bride
Our little girl got married
She was wedded to her mate
The day OK, the food was good
The entertainment great.
We searched through directories
The best had to be found
Ordinary was not good enough
Then we saw it, Sandy Sounds
It said there would be music
Children’s games, balloons and fun
Karaoke, speeches, coloured lights
Something therefore everyone
It started with a fanfare
As into the room we came
A special tune for everyone
Who was introduced by name.
Soft music for the speeches
The room bathed in coloured light
That matched the brides ensemble
And danced on through the night.
Nothing was too much trouble
Each request was quickly found
Each budding presley and Madonna
Added their individual sound.
The first dance it was special
Chosen just for the bride and
Soft tones, and lights, projected
All danced around the room.
And then to up the tempo
As dance music out did ring
Each Swayze and Travolta
Doing their special thing
Songs to dance and sing to
As the night did race away
Silver lining raining men
And of course YMCA.
All too quickly the day was over
The coloured lights went out
Burst balloons strewed the floor
A brilliant night without a doubt.
So to anyone who’s thinking
Of staging an event
In ballroom, pub, a function
Maybe even in a tent.
When only the best is good enough
When second rate just will not do
There’s a dizzy blonde who knows
I’d like to introduce you to.
You’ve seen the rest or heard them
But there’s none that can be found
That could even hold a candle to
The one and only Sandy Sounds

Mark and I can't thank you enough for the amount of effort you put
into our day. You really helped make it a very memorable and fun
occasion for everyone.
Love Charlotte xxx
Thanks Sandy for a superb evening. From the start you were so efficient at corresponding to our emails and calls and even coming to visit us....what service!
The evening was so much fun, I only wished it had lasted longer, looking at the photographs, it brings back all the memories of such a wonderful day and evening.
Sandy must do so many weddings and functions but She made our day very special and original.....everyone keeps telling us what a great time they had.
Thanks Sandy and if we ever need your help in organising a good party....we will get in touch
Love Alexia and Daniel Turner xxx
We really wanted to thank you for the most entertaining and
enjoyable evenings entertainment at a wedding that we have ever
experienced. You were above and beyond what we were hoping for! I
realise that few bride and grooms request Slipknot to be slipped in
when it was convenient, yet you managed to, just for us.
We cannot thank you enough for the professionalism and awesome
selection of music that you provided, catering for every taste which
we listed, even more so
as our taste is not exactly mainstream. Yet everyone, including the
slighty more elderly folks in our wedding party, had the most
fantastic evening. I reckon they even tapped along to Inner party
Thank you to both you and your daughter for what really was a night
we'll never forget, and thank you so much for all those little
extras you provided... i didn't stop smiling for a week...
Truly a wonderful night... Thank you
Natasha and Ryan Daines xx
