To the best superstar wedding DJ in the world, ever. the moment we first met you at the Wild Boar we knew that you were exactly the man for the job. You definitely went above and beyond the call of duty in your rescue missions during storm Desmond and then provided an outstanding party on our wedding evening – the atmosphere was second to none. it goes without saying that we will be recommending you to everyone we know. Thankyou so much

Hi Gary,

Hope you’re well.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for providing our entertainment on Sunday night. Everyone had an amazing day and I think everyone danced until their feet could take no more! Thank you also for providing us to a disc of the tracks played which we played on the way home today. Thank you also for accommodating the band who played before you, massively appreciated.

Wow!! is the word we think of when we look back at Gary Mills DJ at our wedding in August, Gary you are far more than a DJ. You created an incredible atmosphereat our wedding, playing all our favorite songs and getting everyone on the dance floor. Our guests are still commenting on how much fun you were and what fab entertainment you provided. You pulled out all the stops and some surprises. Ultimately you made our night what it was, which is perfect. We could never re-pay you for all you have done. Thank you so very much, your an absolute legend!!! From Mr and Mrs Royle xxx

JANE AND MARK REID. ASHFIELD HOUSE, WIGAN, AUGUST 11th 2016.

 

 

Thank you so so much for helping to make our wedding day so special. You were exactly what we were looking for in a DJ, and much more. Our meeting with you was so relaxed and I was really happy that you took an interest in our personal preferences with regards to the whole wedding day, and not just the role you would be providing. You listened to our requests and added a couple of your own treats as well (inflatable instruments and greek dancing were wonderful), and the whole evening was seamless. Amazing DJ!

Hi Gary ,

Well well well DJ Gary Mills ……. Ha ha what can I say firstly we both wanted to thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for the super display you put on at our evening Wedding Reception.
Living in London and trying to organise a Wedding in the Lake District by email the majority of the time was quite hard work but definitely can be done .
Gary you was truly was fantastic from the first moment we was put in touch with you , by understanding our needs and what kind of music we wanted on our special day . I would 120% recommend this DJ to anyone who is planning a Wedding in the Lakes , he really does know how to throw a super party  and was the life and soul . Very fun and entertaining too make it a truly  unforgettable experience , and one that Amy and I will never forget .

I don’t want to give anything away here but if you book DJ Mills then your in for a real treat and will not be disappointed .

Apologies for my late review Gary but I want to say a huge thank you for being a fantastic DJ for Ryan and I at our wedding on the 24th May at Stanley House.
You ensured all our guests had a fantastic night and everyone was up dancing from the minute you started playing. Your DJ station is also beautiful and we were so happy with how fantastic it looked in the room.
You were a pleasure to work with and always very approachable and helpful from the moment we booked you.
The CD that you also gave us of our wedding songs is such a lovely touch! We have not stopped listening to it in our car. I would 100% recommend you to all my friends who are getting married. Thank you very much!! Love Alisha and Ryan xxx

Alisha and Ryan Ennis-Holden, Stanley House Hotel, Lancashire May 24th 2015

 

Gary was our DJ for our wedding at the Fishermans Retreat on 15/5/15.
Where to start? Firstly thank you so much for making our big day super fun! What a great guy!! The guests all commented on what a great job Gary did! He got everyone dancing and put up with my crazy friend dancing and stealing his props. He managed to entertain both sides English and Spanish I’m so glad we chose you as our DJ because you totally exceeded our expectations and made our day so much more perfect than we ever though it could be… I highly recommend Gary to be anyone’s wedding DJ. We loved our CD too!!
Thanks again. Jon and Emma Fernandez xxx

EMMA AND JON FERNANDEZ, THE FISHERMANS RETREAT, LANCASHIRE  MAY 15TH 2015.

 

We are so grateful to you for the amazing job you did both before and also on the evening of our Wedding.

From our initial chat, you put us at ease. As well as providing great entertainment you were also easy going and happy to work with us to make our day memorable.

You took the co-ordinating of sound equipment with our Drag Queen entertainer off our shoulders which was one less headache for us and was much appreciated!

The evening ran seamlessly. We came away from reception drinks to find everything setup and ready to go. The dancefloor remained full of people dancing (badly!) throughout the evening and you provided great entertainment with the costumes,inflatable guitars etc which were hilarious.

It was really great to have has a DJ who enjoys their job so much and seemed to feel as excited about our big day as we were!

We cannot praise you enough…Thanks once again and keep in touch!

Phil and Ian.

Ian and Philip Thrasher, The Cragwood Country House Hotel, The Lake District, 11th April 2015.

Hi Gary…I just wanted to say thank you so much for DJ’ing at our wedding on Saturday night! We had the best time and you really got the whole room up on the dance floor. So many of our guests commented on how brilliant you were! Thank you for making our evening do so special.

Stephen and Vicky Martin, The Merewood Country House Hotel, Lake District, May 9th 2015

 

Hi Gary…Can I just say thank you for helping make Claire and my wedding night at the Cragwood so very special. I can honestly say it was a tremendous night and everyone who attended our wedding also commented to Claire and myself how they have never been to a wedding evening celebration as good as Saturday night and that was down to your record choices and costume changes. Claire and myself had the best time ever so thank you very much.

Austin and Claire Wilkin, The Cragwood Country House Hotel, Lake District, May 2nd 2015

 

 

” Gary was recommended to us by the hotel.  All of our guests said that he really made the wedding.  I’m sure you can tell from the photos that he was much more than just a DJ. Him and our bridesmaids made a comedy act.  It’s a good job we didn’t have any other entertainment because they wouldn’t have been able to compete ! “

Laura & Mark Harrington, Waterhead Hotel, Ambleside , November 6th 2014.

 

 

Hi Gary,

I would absolutely recommend Gary as the DJ for your Wedding or any other event. What an absolute Legend!

From the first point of contact he was very friendly and incredibly professional. His communication is fantastic. Invoices and receipts are sorted as soon as booked and paid. It leaves you very reassured that he is going to deliver a top quality service.

With reference to his work on the day of our Wedding, he was first class! We hired him to play music during our Wedding Breakfast as well as our Evening Reception. He was impeccably dressed for the Wedding Breakfast. He set the tone perfectly with the tunes he played and the way he hosted that part of the day, relaxed very unobtrusive yet very professional. In the evening he ramped up the atmosphere playing the perfect tunes in the perfect order. He got everyone involved with plenty of dancing and laughing. It really helped to create a fantastic day and night. So many guests at our Wedding commented on how good he was…in-fact nearly all of them!

On top of all this he is a genuinely friendly,warm,lovely guy…we can’t praise him enough.

Mr and Mrs Tom Walker.

Hi Gary

I just wanted to say a huge thank you from both Danny and I for the great music you played at our wedding, you helped to make the day so special and we loved the CD you gave us at the end! One of our favourite moments from the whole day was Danny’s mum and Dad dancing away to Steel Panther at the end of the night, we have laughed so much about it since!!
It was great to meet you too and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you

Thanks again

Hi Gary,

I know this is really after the event now but I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thanks for being our DJ at our wedding-you remember-you were expecting a quiet Monday night at the Merewood in the lakes!

I have been to 2 weddings since ours and (although I am biased) I dont think either Dj came anywhere near as good as you are. A few people have commented that they have never seen the dancefloor so busy at a party. The music and volume was absolutely spot on and catered for every taste at some point during the night.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to friends etc, and if we are ever in need of a DJ again you will definitely be the first we contact.

Many thanks again for a fantastic night.

Best Wishes,

Kate and Stephen Cunliffe.

 

 

Gary was recommended to us as the preferred DJ for our Wedding Venue and we booked him without much consideration. I then went on to look at his Website and contact him via Email which put my mind at ease that we’d made a very good choice. Communication with Gary prior to the Wedding was great and he was very interested in what we did and didn’t want played. He has a manner that is both very professional, down to earth and friendly which is what we would expect from anyone in his line of Business. The music on the evening was great…I vaguely remember that there was a lot of dancing! Gary certainly kept everyone entertained, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Michelle and Stephen White, The Wild Boar Inn, Lake District, August 8th 2014.

Hi Gary,

Just wanted to say another huge Thankyou for all your efforts at our Wedding. So many people commented on the Quality of your music and loved your costume changes and props!

We were both so pleased to have chosen you as our Wedding DJ. It was a great day. 🙂

All the best,

Lisa and Liam.

Hi Gary

We cannot thank you enough – you are one of the best DJs that we have come across.

People travelled to the Lakes from all over the UK and they have all said how amazing your show was – your mix of music and costume changes ensured that the dance floor was always full (even I thought that I was John Travolta)

You played a key part in what was a magical day for us – thank you once again and good luck in the future.

Regards

Ella and Chris Shepherd, The Wild Boar , Lake District, May 3rd 2014

 

Hi Gary,

Me and Rachel just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you for being our DJ for our Wedding Day. You have been so helpful throughout organising everything, always responding to any questions we had almost straight away and anything you could do to help you did.

We had such a fun night as well, the songs you played had everyone on the dance floor, I don’t think at any point it was empty and the up-lighting you provided made the room look amazing! We have had numerous people say how good a night they had and we think you played a major part in that, plus the Wedding Song CD you provided was a lovely touch and will be something we will keep to remind us of an amazing night.

We would have no hesitation recommending you to any of our friends and family and if we ever need a DJ again we will be straight back to you!

Thanks once again,

Rob and Rachel.

Rachel and Robert Wade, The Clifton Arms Hotel, Lytham 19th April 2014.

 

 

Hi Gary,

Having returned from a short but very relaxing break we just wanted to say a huge thanks. From being at Kelly and Craig’s Wedding in September we knew how much fun you would be but wanted to let you know I,ve had loads of comments from our guests saying how friendly you were, how goodthe music was and how funny your costume changes were too. I know you said you were doing battle with the Venue sound limiter but for us it was spot on.

I can’t ever recall seeing my Dad on the dance floor-until the evening of the 28th Feb that is!

Thank you so much for being part of a fantastic day for us, and I’ll have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends.

I’ve found your Twitter account so will stay in touch and say hello from time to time.

Best Wishes,

Mike.

Mike and Andy Barrett, Davenport Green Hall, Cheshire Friday February 28th 2014.

Hi Gary,

Sorry this has taken so long! Can’t quite believe it’s been a month since we got married…it’s flown by.

Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for helping to make our day perfect,from the minute we got to the reception to when we were kicked out you were fab. You listened to everything we asked for and you were most definitely the icing on the perfect wedding cake. All of our friends commented on how good you were and I (the Bride) barely left the dancefloor. We loved the outfits and props…we could not have wished for a better DJ. We will always recommend you and can’t wait for another excuse to book you!

Thank you!!

Love Ben and Rach

Hi Gary,

What an amazing day, the music and your enthusiasm were fantastic, so many costume changes and we were worried my friends would not dance! I have never seen all the lads dancing in the 20+ years I have known them.

Thanks once again, your music was spot on.

Cheers,

Craig
