    Best Wedding DJ Ever!

    If you want a wedding DJ, look no further —DJ G Swift (Garreth) is the absolute best! His flexibility and willingness to meet every request was extremely valuable, both leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. He has a plethora of music which suits all age groups and he is very skilled at reading a crowd— we had everyone dancing the whole night!

    Garreth, you’ve got some badass skills at blending/mixing and transitioning songs. I may not know the proper “DJ” terms, but I want to thank you for making everything absolutely flawless! It was the best party ever!

    Brides (and Grooms): A wedding is extremely stressful and difficult to plan. Make your life easier by choosing Garreth. He will not disappoint. I promise!

    Sincerely,
    A Newlywed

    The soul doctor!

    Like everyone I guess, I've been to many weddings, some good and some bad. I find the ones that were not as enjoyable as others were lacking energy and atmosphere and one of the biggest factors in creating a good atmosphere is the music. So when it came to my own wedding I wanted to make sure the atmosphere was going to be the best of any wedding my friends and family had been to and I had to get the best DJ possible. Over a few months I researched many and went to some of their private gigs once I asked their permission. I narrowed the choice down to 5 DJ's and out of those 5, Gareth from Cygnus events really stood out from the 5 gigs. He seamed to be able to take the crowd on a journey through the music choice and flow to the tracks. I was pretty confident I found the right firm for my wedding and on the big day he didn't disappoint. I had high expectations and Gareth over delivered. We had an in person meeting 2 months out and then a skype meeting 3 weeks out and he covered all angles and eventualities with us and then totally wowed the place on the night. A few friends have asked me for the details so I hope you get some referrals out of our wedding Gareth. Thanks once again for making sure our day was special and memorable.

    Peace of mind for my wedding day

    Cygnus Events was the best choice I made for my wedding. Garreth and I sat down and went through all my songs. He gave me honest suggestions for the party and listened to all my concerns during the whole process. All of the music was amazing. He kept the dance floor packed all night, the song I walked down the aisle too was played seamlessly and all of our guests had the time of their lives. I highly recommend Cygnus Events.
