Selena & Kenneth booked my “Ultimate Wedding Package” for their wedding day on the 20th April 2014 and it was my pleasure to play a part in their big day. They initially contacted me in April 2013 saying they were looking for a bit more than just a DJ. I explained what my Ultimate Wedding package included and they said that was exactly what they were looking for and the booking was confirmed. Over that following year we met and went over all the fine details of time line and who was doing what on the day.
On the day I had the pleasure to meet Peter Macdonald for the first time. He was the celebrant chosen by Selena and Kenneth, and a mighty good choice they made. He was lighthearted and funny and serious at he same time. He engaged the younger in attendance and provided a beautiful ceremony.
The day went by with everything running on time and a great party in the evening finished off a great day.
TESTIMONIAL left by Selena & Kenneth
“Hugh was fantastic as our wedding host, from before the ceremony to the very end of the evening, he showed his enthusiasm to make our day go seamlessly, always available for questions and able to provide an answer using his experience of so many weddings over the years which was of great comfort to both the bride and groom. Keeping the guests entertained for what was a long day is a great skill, also keeping them informed of the schedule and times etc at various points helped a great deal. All in all, we would highly recommend Hugh as a wedding host, he was the glue that held the innumerable amount of pieces that a wedding consists of, together.”
Elaine and Garry celebrated their wedding in the Bothwell Bridge Hotel in Bothwell, Glasgow on the first of March 2014. The hall was decorated lovely and they had a fantastic turnout of friends and family for their special day.
It was my pleasure to introduce Elaine and Garry to the dance floor for their 1st official dance as husband and wife. I presses play and INXS – Never tell us apart played as they swayed to the music. After the 1st dance I invited Elaine’s dad “John” to have the honour of a Father Daughter dance. Everyone commented how sweet it was as they danced round the dance floor to Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
The venue is owned by an Italian family “The Martalo” family. They also own the Avonbridge in Hamilton too. both hotels have plenty of reasonable priced rooms. A bit dated but clean and fresh, and I have never had any issues working with them.
Jackie and David Flue to Cyprus to get married deciding to have an evening reception at the National Piping Centre when they returned for all their family and friends. The party night was held on the 23rd November 2013 and the decided to book my services as entertainer on the night. My instructions from Jackie and David was to have an 80s themed night with a ceilidh set before everyone got too drunk. Not a problem..
The newly married couple were announced in to the hall to cut a wedding cake and moved straight on to the first dance “Amazed by Lonestar”.. The night went well and everyone had a good time on the dance floor being taught some ceilidh moves. It was great to get some feedback from them a few days later which you can see below.
” Thank you very much for providing our entertainment at our Evening Wedding Reception at The Piping Centre Glasgow, I will highly recommend your service.
You were very professional from the beginning and made us feel at ease when booking your service.
Not only did myself and David enjoy all the music you played but our guests also have a great night. Thank you for guiding us through the steps of the ceilidh. ”
Karen and Alastair Marshall celebrated their wedding at the Garfield House Hotel in Stepps, Glasgow on the 18th October 2013. It’s a great venue that I entertain at on a regular basis. They have two halls. One small and intimate and the main hall can easily hold over 100 people.
The happy couple were obviously big Michael Buble fans. The first dance as husband and wife was Michael’s version of Close Your Eyes, and there was a lot more of the “Buble” in the play list for the night too. Not to worry, by the end of the night there was music from all Genre’s making sure everyone had some time on the dance floor.
” Hugh really provided everything that we needed and made sure the night ran smoothly. We could not have asked for more and had a great night. ”
Lynne & David McCarter’s wedding reception that was held at Glasgow’s National Piping Centre on the 29th September 2013. It’s an old church transformed into the central place for pipers and piping history, and a great place to hold a party.
Lynne & David‘s night was full of the old classics.. Uptown Girl, Shang a Lang to name a few and everyone had a ball. Don’t take my work for it, watch the video below.

Jodie & Gary McPhail’s wedding reception was held at the National Piping Centre on the 28th September 2013. The night started off with the announcement of the lovely couple to cut the wedding cake. Once everyone got to take pictures they were invited to the floor to dance together for the first time as husband and wife. Their chosen song was Christina Perri, A Thousand Years. With the formalities over it was time to let your hair down and party and the gusts certainly did that. I played a bit of music for all tastes. Everything from the Temptations to the Killers, everyone had their song played.
” Dear Hugh,Thank you so much for great music to accompany our great wedding! You read the crowd brilliantly. We have and will recommend your service again without hesitation! We hope you had as much fun as we did!Thank you again. Jodie and Gary McPhail x “
Fiona and James first contacted me at the start of 2012. They had talked to John at the Garfield House Hotel and decided that was where they were going to get married. We had a meeting mid March 2012 and discussed what they had in mind and what i could offer them for their very special day. I am delighted to say one week later they booked me to supply the entertainment for their wedding reception on the 21st September 2013.
On the day everyone had a ball From the slosh to the Summer o 69. YMCA to Bits n Pieces.. LOL Everyone had their requests played and lot’s of sore feet at the end of the night. The below feedback made it all the better..
” Hugh, Jamie and I would like to thank you very much for being our DJ at our wedding reception. The music suited both young and old and from what I can gather there were no bums on seats at the end of the night. “
Mary and John Shields had their wedding reception at the No 7 suite of Celtic Football Club in Glasgow on the 30th August 2013 and I was honored with the chance to entertain for them. What a lovely couple, and a great night was had getting pictures taken on the pitch and the trophy rooms etc and dancing the night away till closing time.
No pictures taken on this night but i was pleased to receive this lovely feedback below..
“Hi there Hugh. We just cannot thank you enough for being our DJ at our wedding reception. We couldn’t have picked at better one. You were FANTASTIC from the beginning right through to the very end. The music was just so perfect for the age group at the wedding and everyone has commented to us just how much they enjoyed your entertainment. We would strongly recommend you to our family and friends.
Thank you so much Hugh for making our special day that bit more special. You were are star.
Jacqui & James McDevitt contacted me April 2012 looking for their entertainment for their wedding in a year’s time. I popped out to their house and met them to discuss what they were looking for on their day and they liked what they saw. They booked me on the night and we then set out to plan the wedding of the year. They were up for everything I suggested and what a night it was when it arrived.
The wedding was held at the Sandylands Golf Club in Glasgow on the 12th April 2013. After the wedding breakfast the hall was turned around swiftly by the venue staff and Jacqui & James were formally announced on to the floor for their first dance as husband and wife. Everyone else was invited to join them on the second song and the party was well and truly on the way. During the night we had ceilidh dancing, the shoe game, throwing the bouquet, the lot. It was amazing. Everyone was out for a good night and it showed.
On our special day we hired Hugh to be our wedding DJ. From the first meeting right thru we found him very professional. On the night he showed up prompt and with a great attitude. From the moment he arrived he put both my wife and I at ease.
His personal touches were above and beyond what we were expecting and really added to the night. Everyone had such a great night and that was largely down to Hugh. Everyone commented on how great he was and how much they enjoyed him.
We also echo that he made our night both as a DJ and as a great host. We would hire him again in a heartbeat.
