"John was Celebrant, MC and DJ at our daughter’s wedding last weekend. I have been aware of his work for many years and know he is the consummate professional, organised, customer focussed – all the good things. What impressed us the most was his skill at calming the nerves of our daughter – a few well-chosen words, a gentle distraction, a perfectly timed joke, and I saw her visibly relax, a skill worth more than money could buy. Needless to say, highly recommended." — Carol N.

Before arranging any music for your wedding, we recommend talking with the venue to find out what their policy is on entertainment. The practical aspects of the venue are important such as atmosphere, décor, lighting, access, departure times and the venue's location.The food, service and entertainment are the most important aspects of the function and you need to ensure you're happy and that you've chosen the best suppliers within your budget. Always brief the venue on your entertainment requirements to get some feedback. You are under no obligation to use the venues preferred suppliers, as some make commissions from forcing you to use them. This practice is illegal and is third party enforcement. Always negotiate direct with the suppliers and take advice from the venue as to their top 3 recommendations. Refuse to pay any penalties a venue may demand for not using their suppliers, as this is also illegal. Remember nothing is for Free! …you're paying for it in the package price.

What a fantastic night. Everyone was loving the music and said John was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. It was a perfect night and he did such an amazing job. We would highly recommend him.

We could not recommend Middleton Events enough! BIG Five stars! John was our celebrant, MC and DJ for our wedding and our guests can not stop talking about how great John was. From the special personalised touches in the ceremony to the knowing just what song to play (John had everyone up and dancing!), it was certainly night to remember! Thanks to John Middleton and the Middleton Events Team for making our day so special! You truly made it everything we had imagined it could have been! We will certainly be back to plan our next big event with the John and his team!

What are your favourite songs to play at a wedding?

We're starting to think about song choices for our wedding. I'm curious about what songs musicians love to play at weddings (vs the cliched ones they get asked about!). Would love to hear your personal favourites?

What are some fun activities for the wedding reception?

Middleton Events

Hi and congratulations on your wedding. Your question is quite broad and will vary given your wishes. Every bride is different and we've performed at over 10,000 weddings and not one has been the same. It all comes down to you, your family and guests. I'm not a big fan of games at weddings, as I think its quite inapropriate for a gathering of family and friends who havent seen each other for awhile. But hey we are all different aand respect those who want that. There are many ways you can entertain, engage and interact with guests without making guests the centre of attention and feeling a bit awkward. Here's a blog I wrote and there's quite a few others on our site that may assist. https://www.middletonevents.com/blog/corporate-entertainment-adelaide good luck with the planning!

Wedding speeches, who gives a speech and should there be a format as to not repeat?

Struggling to know who should be giving a speech and what each speech should contain so we are not all repeating each other. ??

Middleton Events

Generally there will be 4 to 6 speeches and quite often they can be seperated between entree and main course or all after main course. It's quite common for the parents to present their speeches during entree and mains and then the bridal party after main course, as to not interrupt food service.

The order of speeches is generally as follows, however can be changed and presented in any order to suit your needs.

Brides Parents Speech and toast to Newlyweds

Grooms Parents Speech and toast to Newlyweds

Groom/s and or Bride/s to respond to toast and toast Bridal Party

Brides Speech

Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor to respond on behalf of Bridal Party

Bridesmaids of Speech

Groomsmen Speech

Other Speeches

Would you like MC to invite guests to make a Speech?
