I just wanted to email you and say thanks a million for doing an AMAZING job at our wedding. The dancefloor was jam packed from start to finish and it was easy to see EVERYONE was having a brilliant time!! Your playlist was perfect for our group and you kept everyone in flying spirits.
Thanks Again, Orla and DavidOrla & David, Castle Grove Country Hotel
I found SM Entertainments extremely professional from start to finish. Stephen was extremely organised prior to our wedding by asking for some requests in advance that would suit our guests. He also turned up to the venue about an hour before he was scheduled to play to ensure he knew where to set up, etc… Like any typical wedding, we under-estimated timings which meant that Stephen wasn’t able to play when agreed. However, he was extremely flexible and easy-going to suit our day which took a huge pressure off us. We had a ceilidh band playing prior to the DJ set which you would have thought might have tired out our guests. However, Stephen was so seamless in his transition and played a range of music to accommodate all tastes that the energy was maintained throughout the entire night. In fact, the guests enjoyed his DJ set so much that they were chanting/begging for him to play one more song at the end of the night! Duncan and I truly had the best day of out lives! We can not thank Stephen enough for making our day that little bit more fun! Gwen & DuncanGwen & Duncan, Rosapenna Hotel
Many thanks for making our wedding venue so very special, the Uplighting created a beautiful winter wonderland just what we wanted and special appreciation for taking to the time the evening before to get it all just right. thanks again.Jackie & Brendan, Silver Tassie Hotel Letterkenny
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for making our special day so enjoyable.
Everyone said about how the piping added to the castle setting. They were also complimentary about the disco! Thanks for all your efforts in keeping them on the dance floor.

Well what can I say….. S.M entertainments were brilliant from the beginning when we booked with Stephen till the end 🙂 Stephen was very easily contactable and approachable made us very reassured being we live in England! The entertainment on the night was fantastic, it was great Stephen offered us to put in a couple of music requests for the big day, I believe we had put in a bout half dozen a…nd I believe he had played everyone for us even highlighting when he played a special song for us, but to be honest you wouldn’t need to put in any requests of music because Stephen knows what to play and plays brilliant choices and definitely know how to get a crowd up dancing, I can honestly say when Stephen was playing the dance floor was never empty! Thank you so much and brilliant working with you!Niall & Becky, MillPark Hotel

Myself and Lorraine would just like to thank you for the excellent job you did at DJ’ing our wedding this Aug 2013 in Donegal.
We did not use a band so had you playing from 1st dance to the end of the night and it was fantastic.
We could not recommend you more highly to any prospective customers, you were very accessable in the build up to the wedding, noted and played our requests while also catering for other musical tastes.
It was the most dancing we’ve ever seen at a wedding, we had a blast and you were highly complimented by our guests.

Just to say thank you so much for helping to make our day special, your commitment was phenomenal and Matt and Gillian were fabulous.
We really do appreciate your level of service and attention to detail – you are one in a thousand.

Stephen was a brilliant DJ for our wedding, he managed to keep the floor filled all night (keeping an eleven year and an 80 year both happy!!) and everyone at our wedding is now recommending him to others. We found Stephen to be extremely professional and a very calm person to deal with in the run up to the wedding. You were born to work in the wedding industry – the most professional & calm person I encountered over the whole 6 months of planning! Thank you Stephen for making our wedding day fantastic!”
Tanya & DuncanTanya & Duncan, Kee's Hotel
Stephen was the perfect choice for our wedding, i would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen for whatever function you are having. Throughout the night he was approachable and played any song that he was asked to. He managed to keep the dance floor full for the whole time he was playing, not an easy task!! and all of our guests from the relatives in their 80s to our friends in their late 20s have told us how much fun they had dancing the night away! he kept the crowd happy and i don’t think that there was anything else he could have done to make it a better night!!Great job Stephen!! hope to see you playing somewhere else soon, a guarantee of a good night!!James & Mairead, Harvey's Point Donegal

Thank you Stephen for everything you did on our wedding day. The piping was excellent and a real treat for a Scotsman in Ireland. Everyone commented on how good the DJ was and you managed to keep the dance floor full for the entire period you were playing.Dr Simon and Mrs Emma Raby, Oxfordshire
The flexibility and professionalism of your approach should be testimony enough – thanks again!
We just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive THANK YOU for DJing at our wedding. You were incredibly professional and responded promptly to all our queries. You read the crowd really well on the day and managed the fine balance of keeping the dance floor filled and keeping everybody happy! We also really enjoyed the party game you’d suggested – lots of people commented on it afterwards. We’d definitely hire you again and would highly recommend you to any of our friends.
Best of luck,

We had a fantastic time in Ireland and can’t thank you enough for the excellent service you provided. The piper was extremely accommodating and gave an amazing performance on the day.
I booked a piper as a surprise for the bride and groom. They were overwhelmed when they heard the sound of the pipes and claim it was the best wedding present they could wish for. The unforgettable atmosphere you created exceeded all our expectations and I would highly recommend yourself to anyone who is considering hiring a bagpiper.
Donna McMillanDonna McMillan, Scotland
My Dad organised you as a surprise for our wedding day. It was wonderful to hear you announce us as the newly married couple to the sound of a joyous bagpipe tune outside the church. You were there to entertain the guests outside the hotel while they waited for the wedding party to arrive and piped us into the reception. You were extremely professional, looked great in a traditional tartan kilt and according to good sources did not play a note out of tune. Many of the guests commented on the lovely atmosphere that the pipes created. Thanks for helping to make our day one to be remembered.

Just a little email to say thank you very much for the piping.You were brilliant and I’m so glad we had you pipe us in…. I think Scott was so keen to make it to the meal he nearly stood on your heels! And Waltzing Matilda was perfect. Sorry I did not get more of a chance to speak with you on the day. Thank you very much – will make sure I remember you for all our piping’s we ever need and will recommend you to everyone – you were brilliant.
