Nick exceeded our expectations leading up to and on our wedding day. His communication and customer service was up there with the best that we have ever received from any vendor. We hired him for his live music and DJ services, but he went so above and beyond that it felt like we hired another MC. Nick facilitated any request that we had and was happy to provide feedback and suggestions on what we could do better. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Nick and we have no doubt that we will continue to use his services. For anyone looking to use Nick for any of his services, I wouldn’t even think twice about it. He is one of, if not the best in the industry.

There are no words to honestly describe Nick Read Entertainment. Nick went out of his way to make the whole process as easy and stress free as he could. The music on the night went off without a hitch and was out of this world. Nick thought of every little detail and honestly made us feel like family. The dance floor wasn't empty all night! Our family and friends haven't stop complimenting his work, it was that good! Loved him and would recommend to everyone!

We found nick on easy weddings - and easy was the booking and planning with Nick! He was very flexible when we had to postpone our wedding date due to COVID lockdowns. On the day, all our guests kept telling us how great Nick and the music was! Nick was easy going, friendly and professional. He is very talented and we had the best time dancing the night away with him coordinating all the live/acoustic and DJ music. He even took plenty of photos and videos of us and our guests living it up on the dance floor once our photographer/videographer finished. Couldn’t recommend Nick more highly! Definitely book him for all music - ceremony, canapés and reception.

Nick was a fabulous musician. He was our first choice and we were so lucky he was available. His voice is excellent and he knew exactly the right songs to choose. We were unsure which music to select for the DJ portion of our reception and Nick was able to work with us to work out exactly the right vibe. We had a range of ages at our wedding and everyone was able to get up and dance. Nick played acoustically during our dinner service and he played so well our guests didn’t realise he was live straight away! The timing on our ceremony music and the tone in the lead up to the bride walking down the aisle was spot on. We couldn’t have asked for more from Nick. He is kind, professional and excellent at what he does!

Nick was amazing! I knew that my dj had to be great, but Nick exceeded my expectations! He was attentive to the room and made our night one to remember. Nick was also MC and did it so well, checking in with us every step of the night. I can’t recommend Nick enough, my guests are still making comment on how amazing he was nearly a month after our wedding. Thank you so much Nick, you rock!

Nick is the ultimate musician to have at your wedding- he is able to play wonderfully on the guitar, has a fantastic Voice and has a wide playlist he can tailor to your needs. He gave us a unique experience by learning to our play our favourite song for our first dance and he blew us away with it. He is quick With his communications and is worth his Weight in gold. He will make your wedding have that special edge and the night unforgettable. We meet him at my sisters wedding and can say that he is consistently amazing at his job.

We had seen Nick play a local gig a few years ago and knew from that moment when we got married we wanted him as our musician and DJ. Nick still managed to exceed our expectations for the day learning and playing specialised songs for my entrance to the ceremony to ensure the vision I had for my wedding day came together perfectly. Throughout the night guests continued to come up to me complimenting Nicks amazing skills all our guests stopped in the middle of dinner and were too busy singing along to his music and enjoying the atmosphere he created. It was just magical. As an MC for the night Nick kept the show going his humor and experience meant he never missed a beat and had us all laughing. All throughout the night Nick came to check in with me and make sure we were happy with everything

Nick was extremely professional throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding day, he was very flexible with personalising the day to us and was always there to answer any questions. On the day itself, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Nick made sure he came up to us several times throughout the night to check in on how everything was going. We would highly recommend his services again. Thanks Nick!

Nick is not only an incredible talent but an incredible human as well! From the beginning he was so organised, ensuring he understood everything we wanted for our wedding and making it easy for us to select music for all the key moments. He took extra time to meet with us to ensure we were all on the same page and connected with our MC/Celebrant to ensure everything was professionally run to the highest level. On the day, his performance skills were phenomenal, we knew he was talented but hearing it live was something else. A reason my husband and I were so pleased with our day was in huge part to Nick and his talents, he made it a night we will never forget and wish we could live over and over again. Thank you so much Nick!

Nick was absolutely incredible to work with, from start to finish, exceeding all expectations. Our guests were so impressed by his talent and humour. His professionalism made every element of the process seamless, particularly going above and beyond to assist with tasks, outside of music, where he saw assistance was needed. His service was up there with one of the best vendors that we dealt with. We truly appreciated his kind and easy-going nature. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Nick and would recommend Nick to anyone looking for a musician on their wedding day!

We actually booked Nick after seeing him perform at a friend's wedding! Huge musical repertoire. Willing and able to learn up to 10 new songs! Despite flooding, fallen trees and road works, Nick still made it to the ceremony on time and did wonders easing the transition to a late ceremony start. We got many many compliments for his musical talents. Great easy-going guy with brilliant musical gifts. Would highly recommend!

Thank you so much Bethany! I'm so glad you got to go ahead with your special day. Thank you for entrusting me with your wedding soundtrack, I had the best time!
