LOOKING FOR A PROFESSIONAL MASTER OF CEREMONIES?
Many couples have a negative view of a “Master of Ceremonies” and equate the title to a traditional English Toastmaster with a bright red jacket and regimented, formal manner.
I have combined some of the traditional MC duties with a more relaxed, fun and informal style, using the title “Wedding Host” to describe the service I offer.
As your Wedding Host I have numerous responsibilities, including ensuring that your wedding runs smoothly and to schedule, as far as possible, and introducing everyone in a complimentary and fun manner. I put in a huge amount of preparation to each and every wedding I host, and will also adjust and ad lib as necessary to ensure you have a successful wedding day.
DUTIES I WILL PERFORM FOR YOU AS A WEDDING HOST:
I will co-ordinate with the other suppliers at your wedding: Caterers, Photographer, Videographer, Entertainers, Chocolate Fountain & Photbooth suppliers ensuring that everyone is working to the same schedule.
I will arrive early on the day, and will speak with anyone who is giving a speech so that they know in which order they will be speaking, and helping to ease any nerves. I will give them a warm introduction and ensure a smooth transition between each section of your day.
I will be on hand to assist with any unforeseen issues to ensure your day runs smoothly.
I will ensure that your are relaxed (as far as possible) and help guide you through all the day’s formalities.
RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR WEDDING
I always make sure I am extremely well prepared and have accurate information on the names of every member of your bridal party, as well as being aware of any unusual pronunciations. With me acting as your Wedding Host, you can relax and not worry about the timeline, order of proceedings, or delegation of duties on the day.
I’VE GOT THE KEY!
Keeping your guests informed as to what is happening throughout the day is a key part of a Wedding Host’s duties . Have you ever been at a wedding where, for example, the speeches have finished and everyone is sitting around wondering what is happening next? Nobody is providing any information as to whether you can now chill out for a while or even go and freshen up. You haven’t a clue when the Cake Cutting is, or even the First Dance. I will keep your guests informed throughout the day.

We met Paul at a wedding fair and immediately felt comfortable with him. He is friendly, approachable and easy to chat to. Paul's service was brilliant from start to finish. He listened to our requests and contact via email was speedy and reliable. On the night we all had a brilliant time and we cannot thank Paul enough for making it a night to remember!
Becky and Adrian
Fantastic dj, such a lovely guy and truly talented! You brought so much fun and laughter to our wedding!
Sian & Matt
Every aspect of Paul’s service was absolutely brilliant. He made our wedding planning and day itself incredibly easy and most importantly, a lot of fun!Paul understood exactly what we wanted during both day and evening and ensured everything went smoothly. The party started early and didn’t stop until the very end – there have been so many positive comments from our guests about how good the night was. I would also highly recommend asking him to be your host for the day as well as DJ, it was very helpful to have him around (particularly during the speeches).There really isn’t a better person out there for wedding services. Get in touch with Paul and book him now if he’s available... if he‘s not, consider changing your date!
Love Paul, he totally understood what music we wanted to make the perfect atmosphere. I can't recommend him enough. Thank you Paul.
Steph & Matt
Paul was absolutely amazing from start to finish. After placing a website enquiry, we met up with him in a pub (always a good sign) and had a really good chat about what we were after and what Paul offered. This was before Paul even knew he was going to get the booking. Before the wedding, Paul came to our home to meet up with us, finalise everything and get a feel for us and what sort of music and atmosphere we were after. He is a genuinely lovely guy and worked seamlessly with our other suppliers, including (but not limited to) our live band and our toastmaster. He was happy and bubbly throughout the day (not always easy when surrounded by increasingly drunk people! On the day, Paul stayed with us all day, (from 3pm) even though he was only meant to be with us from 6.30pm. Not only would we recommend Paul to anyone looking for a DJ, we would personally ensure he was available before setting a date for any future event. We even had a congratulations card from him waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon!
Brilliant service from DJ Paul, is lovely and makes sure everyone is happy, would highly recommend. Thank you
As a Wedding Videographer.. i hear many Dj s..... Paul is exceptional.
Great timing... great manner with people, a true Gent and professional.
Professional from start to finish, nothing was to much as Paul guided us through a perfect night, thank you x
We hired Paul for our wedding day and he did not disappoint! From the very beginning at our first meeting he was professional, very helpful and helped us tailor a playlist to suit all of our guests. Everyone had such a great night, from kiddies enjoying their songs, to the men enjoying some rock &roll! We highly recommend Paul, and he has just done another fantastic night for my brothers wedding last weekend too.
An absolutely lovely wedding and reception! Paul is a true professional - he clearly took the time to get to know his clients, and created the perfect atmosphere with just the right music and lots of laughter. Everyone, young and old, thoroughly enjoyed the day from start to finish. If you're looking for an MC or DJ for your wedding event, Paul Allen is definitely your man. Thoroughly recommend!
Great to work with you Saturday night Paul, fun and professional.

Ben & Claire
The service we have received from Paul has been first class. We knew when we first met him that he would be the perfect DJ for our wedding and this turned out to be the case. He kept in contact with us in the build up to the wedding and on the day was prompt, polite & played exactly the sort of music we'd asked for. We both said that we couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Thanks so much Paul!
Sophie & Gary
Thank you so much for helping us have the perfect evening! Paul honestly went above and beyond to make sure that we had everyone up on the dance floor and it definitely worked! People had an amazing time and I had so many people say he was the best dj they had ever experienced and would definitely love to book him themselves! If we could give 100 stars we definitely would, Paul was superb from start to finish!!
Nicola & Jason
Paul was absolutely fantastic, even with a sick bride who was 2 hours late to her own reception, he kept everyone happy, entertained and made it so much easier for me when I finally felt well enough to join in. The music was awesome and everyone kept the dance-floor going right until the very end. Would highly recommend Paul for any occasion. To get the pictures of the reception included was such a bonus and we got some wonderful shots so can't thank you enough
love Jason & Nicky xx
Excellent DJ and MC, the music is as you want it and the set-up fantastic.
Thank you so much Paul
Excellent time at our friends wedding. Would thoroughly recommend and thanks for a great evening
Fabulous reception by this DJ at my friends wedding. I would definitely recommend
him to my friends and family. Well done Paul
Amanda & Max
Best google search ever! Paul was a pleasure to hire; he tailored very thing to us personally and really went the extra mile to keep the party going. Could not recommend highly enough!
Martin & Chantelle
What can I say. Top bloke, from the first meet to the wedding day. We could not have not asked for anything, else it’s been top class. The music, Mr & Mrs and the bonus Batman sign for a geeky groom.
A must have DJ at any event.
Paul was fantastic! He really understood what we wanted and we had a great party, everyone had a brilliant time. Thank you Paul!
Laura & Steve
Paul helped make our special day even more special! He took the time to get to know us and understand the music we wanted and also plan those special moments like the first dance and cake cutting! After the wedding he even provided us with some photos and a short clip which was so lovely and we are very grateful! We can't thank you enough!
Nicola & David
Paul, massive heartfelt THANK YOU for all of the really hard work you put in to our wedding day yesterday. You totally have the perfect mix of friendliness, professionalism and dedication. You clearly love your job and are utterly brilliant at it too. From first meeting, to the emails, phone calls, to the run up and everything on the day. Super impressive!! Loved all the music you played but especially the tunes towards the end of the night. Haven't danced so much in years!! If you are looking for a DJ and a wedding host then you won't regret booking Paul Allen.
Thanks again Paul, very best wishes from Nicola & David Xxx
Emily & Gurvinda
Paul is so friendly and knowledgeable! He gave us a completely tailored service from beginning to end and was in constant contact. Every single guest was on the dance floor and didn't want the evening to end! All of my guests commented on how superb Paul was!
Paul was a fantastic DJ and I can't imagine having had anyone else. He really listened to what we wanted and helped us to create the perfect playlist and atmosphere for our wedding celebrations. He's friendly, polite and extremely professional. You couldn't be in better hands. Thank you for being a part of our special day. I can not recommend Paul highly enough. Xx
Hannah & Kayvan
Right from the minute we booked Paul he was amazing and his service was so client centered from the minute we first spoke. He came to visit us in our own home and made us feel relaxed about our wedding day. Nothing was too much of a hassle for Paul, he was happy do almost anything we asked and made sure our special day was just how we wanted it ... he did not even mind when we chose our first dance song 2 days before our wedding day! I would highly recommend Paul to anyone who is getting married, he clearly loves what he does and will go out of his way to make sure your day is special. We cannot thank you enough for your service and personal touches. We could not imagine having anyone else to DJ at our wedding you truly were amazing and everyone danced all night
Thank You so much love Hannah & Kayvan xxx
Wonderful and professional service, excellent DJ
Emma & Robert

WOW..We could not thank Paul enough for everything he did. We live some distance from The Norfolk Mead but Paul was always on hand and really quick to answer those last minute questions settling our nerves. Paul had everything in hand from day one, making us feel relaxed the whole time. If you are reading this review I would imagine you are looking for a DJ? well for what its worth - stop looking as you have found him. Exceptional service and everyone loved him. Paul played music that kept the dance-floor full and he even got my favourite photo of the night. When needed he stepped up to help organise our sparkler exit grabbing the best photos, above and beyond what we expected. Paul even sent us the next day a video of the photos he had taken with a favourite song choice of ours, Becca was in floods of happy tears. Paul just has that great personal touch which just blew us away.
Anyway enough rambling now but if you need a DJ please please work with Paul you will not be disappointed trust me.

Paul was fantastic from start to finish. From the moment we met Paul we knew he was the right DJ for us. He’s friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. His communication was great and when it came to the big day he made sure the dance full was full, played our requested songs and always had a smile on his face.
Thanks for everything and a great party Paul!
We had Paul DJ our wedding at Park Hill. He was a true professional. A pleasure to deal with from our first phone call to the last song of the night. Would recommend anybody looking for a DJ to book Paul without any hesitation. Thank you for helping to make our wedding night be as magical as it was.
Mr & Mrs Stevens.
I have worked in the industry for over 20 years, events, theatre, concerts, radio, disco's etc and can honestly say Paul is one of the best I've had the pleasure of seeing in action. He was 'DJ' for my Sister-In-Law's wedding and we danced all night. I know she was very impressed with his service too.
