We hope you are well. First of all, apologies for how long it has taken us to get in touch with you, it's been a busy few months! Rebecca and I would like to thank you so much for playing at our wedding on the 11th August, you made our day so special. We have had so many comments from our guests about how fantastic you were. We absolutely loved doing the first dance under the tree, and you really made us feel at ease. Rebecca now likes to be referred to as Lady R! Everything through from the cutting of the cake to the last dance was perfect and everything we could have asked for. We couldn't have asked for anyone to do a better job of hosting the evening, you were awesome!!!
We have already recommended you to a number of friends, and you will of course be our first point of call for entertainment at any future events.
Ben & Rebecca
We're finally getting round to our many thank you letters and just wanted to say a huge "thank you" for everything you did at our wedding.
The way you helped to organise people was fab and everything worked like clockwork, we had comments from people who thought you were actually a wedding planner! And then you picked up your guitar .....brilliant!
The music all through the day was absolutely fantastic & we wouldn't change a thing.
To anyone thinking of booking you for their wedding, all we would say is "do it, you won't regret it!"
With much love from
John & Kim Bradbury

Thanks for an amazing day. Fantastic music and great company.

Quick note to pass on our thanks for everything you did for us on Friday. Everyone we've spoken to tells us they had an amazing day and it was the best/most relaxed wedding they've been to. We had a brilliant time and that's pretty much all that matters.
I'm sure you're already well aware what a large part you played in our day and how much you contributed to it being an all round success, and I'm sure every couple who's day you are involved with are similarly grateful for making it the best day of their lives. You're brilliant at what you do and for the sake of happy couples everywhere out there I hope you never stop.
Anyway, enjoy your brief time off, put your feet up, and have smashing birthday!
All the best,
The new Lord & Lady Alvis
I wanted to take the time to write following our wedding last week. You were absolutely fantastic, not only your superb musical skills and talent but the way you took ownership of the day. Many of the guests were asking who you were and were shocked when I said you were the 'music man'. After asking 'does he come from far away, what does he play' they joined me in saying how well you helped the day flow and build.
Rhianna and I are delighted with the services you provided in a professional, thoughtful and skillful manner.
Thank you so much for everything you did.
Lord & Lady Nicholls
We just wanted to a say thank you for being at our wedding. Everyone is still talking about how amazing you were on the day and your music made everyone want to dance and sing along. Without you, the wedding would have not been nearly as special and magical and I can not thank you enough for that. We would gladly recommend you to anyone getting married and have already encouraged some of our friends and family to go and see you performing in Nottingham, as they really wanted to see you again.
Good luck for the future and thank you.
Hope you're well?
I've been meaning to write this email to you for ages to say thank you for everything you did on our wedding day. You did far more than we ever expected and it had the added bonus of completing confusing our guests: some thought we'd hired you as a wedding planner and some thought you worked for the venue. The day guests got such a shock when you picked your guitar up in the evening and started singing.
Everything about the day was helped along by you, calming my nerves, organising our guests, making sure we were in the right place at the right time, as well as playing fantastic music throughout the day and some fantastic sets.
We've had so many compliments that we chose to book you, but the praise should all sit with you as you were fab :)
Keep September 2016 free as I'll be turning 30 and have a feeling I might have to have a party as an excuse to book you again ;)
Claire and Gav xx
Thank you for Saturday night, all my guests were impressed with the singing. Thanks for making my night a success. Hope to see you again soon. If you remember, drop me an email next time you are playing at the nelson in BJ and we'll try and get down there.
We have just got back from Dubai and wanted to say a massive thank you for making our wedding truly awesome! You were absolutely amazing! Everyone said you and the band were fantastic!! Also thank you for your help (non music related), you should definately advertise yourself as a musician/wedding coordinator!!
Thank you again and we'll hopefully see you soon.
All the best
Guy & Lucy (Anderson :-) )
hi Ben, now that we are back off the honeymoon and the dust has settled we just wanted to send an email to express our thanks for all of your help on the big day. All of the guests had an amazing time as did we, thanks to your injection of fun and humour whilst organising guests and arranging photos and of course singing.
so thanks for all of your hard work, we will definately be recommending you to friends and family and will keep you in mind for any future events we have.
Thanks again mate,
Adam and leanne Brooks ;)
Thank you for being part of our special day!
We don’t know what we would have done without your help, guidance and support.
You are a true professional and we are grateful you were part of our wonderful day!
Sally and Mike
It has taken me so long to get in touch because i can't really find the words to tell you how fantastic you were on our wedding day.
We had the most perfect day and that was mainly down to you and how amazing you are!
You were helpful, caring (on my 2 melt downs), organised and..... an amazing singer. we couldn't have wished for anything more.
We don't know how we would have got through the day if it wasn't for you and everything you did for us and for that we are so grateful.
When we talk about our wedding day you are always mentioned, our guests loved you and we recommend you to everyone we know, for us you really were one of the highlights of our wedding day. THANK YOU.
With love and best wishes,
Mr & Mrs Fowler xx
We hired Just Ben for our wedding in the Peak District in March 2014 after seeing him perform in a bar in Nottingham. We were very impressed when we saw him play live and the variety of styles that he played.
Just Ben, at our wedding sang and performed acoustically throughout the evening and DJ’d. He also sung and played an acoustic track for our 1st dance.
We cannot recommend Just Ben highly enough! He is a complete professional and is very easy to work with. We met with Just Ben after booking him for the wedding and we discussed with him what musical entertainment we wanted and he listened to us, offered us advice and support from his vast experience but worked with us to deliver exactly what we wanted. He has great experience of performing and has some very useful advice!
When our evening reception started and the music began, with either Just Ben performing or being the DJ, our dance floor was never empty! He was fantastic and kept our guests dancing all evening!
He is very calming influence and understands the pressures of the big day and he works with you to help achieve exactly what you want, which is a great relief when planning a wedding as there is so much to do!
Just Ben was superb! Don’t hesitate to book him!
Rebecca & Ben
What can I say , you were absolutely fantastic last night and we were absolutely thrilled that you were our music man! You impressed everyone including people who are usually hard to please....so just wanted to say a massive thanks..... Do let me know if there is somewhere to sing your praises on your website etc...would be happy to.
Caroline and Jonathan x
Just a note to say a very big thank you for all you did yesterday, Chris and Amie were so pleased with everything you did, and loved their very special first dance, everyone loved it too. The guests never stopped telling us how much they enjoyed your performance. Chris, Amie and the best man and company hope to catch up with you soon and are planning to come and see you at a local venue so they can thank you in person. It was quite a day and evening, we were in very safe hands great music, great atmosphere and what a professional
Thanks a million
Ann and Neil (Mother & Father of the Groom)
We cannot thank you enough for your role on our wedding day. You were a so helpful throughout the day, making people feel comfortable and welcome, as well as rocking the music! You were always there with a drink and an extra pair of hands, and really helped the day run smoothly - despite us having to make lots of changes to the day due to the heat! You were also colour coordinated - which I'm not sure you realise - is extremely important to a perfectionist bride like myself, so thank you!!
Everyone at the wedding thought you were one of the ushers, because you were so involved and friendly! The moving of the disco to outdoors was a particular stroke of genius and really made the day - dancing under the stars to 'Live Forever' is a memory we will treasure forever.
Thank you again. We look forward to catching up with you at one of your gigs soon,
Kelly and Ben
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for absolutely everything from creating such an amazing atmosphere to our first dance (which was perfect!!!!) I just wish that someone had video’d it.
You have such a fantastic voice and an amazing personality, which made people feel a lot more relaxed and enjoy themselves. We’ve had so many family and friends comment on how fantastic and friendly you were.
Nicky & Hayley
Just a little message to say a HUGE thanks for Friday. Everyone keeps telling me how fabulous you were. I think it's safe to say you went down well. Me and Stu are the newest members of your fan club.
On another note I would also like to say sorry for my bridesmaid I believe she was getting a little close. But hope you didn't mind me and my friend getting involved?
You helped finish off the most perfect day. The sun was shining, the drinks (mainly jagerbombs - oops) were flowing and everyone had a boogie!!!
I've attached a pic or 4 which helps sum our day up.
It is probably not our official place to do this, but we would love to personally thank you for your support in making 'our' wedding of the year so special.
The role that you played was a large part in making it our perfect day for our son and daughter in law, from everything you did during the day, taking on the master of ceremonies role, to the 'proper' job of making our entertainment so much fun throughout the evening.
A couple of quotes from guests( not the family as they are biased) was that it was 'absolutely seamless' and 'the best wedding that they had ever been to'. These quotes are in no small part down to the role that you played.
Thank you very much, again, for the role that you played.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending your services to anyone looking for a special wedding.

How are you? I just wanted to say a huge thank you for yesterday. You were a major part of the day running so smoothly and getting everyone into the spirit. You are absolutely fab x

Hi Ben x
Wow where do I start, thank you we had the most amazing, perfect day last Saturday! It was fabulous! X
Thank you for all your hard work, it all ran so smoothly!
My Dad and step mum were highly impressed with you and everything ( and that takes a lot! )
Thank you again,
Steve and Banky love you!
Lou & Steve May 2013
Thank you for making our wedding day on Saturday 25th February 2013 at Shottle Hall extra special with everything you did for us. The music was fantastic and everyone commented on how great your live performances were.
We had a fantastic day and your enthusiasm during the master of ceremonies was brilliant.
We really enjoyed seeing you perform at Risley Park.
We will highly recommend you to friends or family.
All the very best.
Chris and Liz Corcoran
Where to start!!!!! You really did make our day, from helping Charlotte with the flowers to singing in the Church, you really were amazing.
Andy & Kerry
What can I say....you are truly a legend! You really made our day be something to remember. You were by far the talk of the day/week! You did such an amazing job...thanks for all of your hard work.
Get yourself on the voice.
Maria & John x
Just a quick e-mail to say we really appreciated your involvement during our wedding and loved the music.
Laure, me, and all the guests are very pleased with the day.
Ps. The French loved your live music despite not dancing! They prefer to watch and admire rather than dance! A few of them are very jealous of your guitar too!
Its John (the groom from last Saturday). I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything that you did on Saturday. You took so much on that meant we were free to enjoy the day and not panic (too much). I will unreservedly recommend you to anyone who is looking for music and if we have any other celebrations, you will be first on our contact list.
Thanks again for making us feel so comfortable and helping to make the day fantastic.
John, not Jonathan.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. You helped to make our day extra special and played a great role in making the day run smoothly!
You sounded great as always and the guests were very impressed with you.
I will be recommending you to all of my friends and family who are planning a wedding or party and want a perfect act!
Thank you again, you were amazing.
Vic and Paul
I just wanted to email to say thank you for last Saturday – you were brilliant! Dean and I were both really pleased with your performance and you certainly went down well with all of our friends. In fact, we had a few texts the next day to say how good you were!
I did go onto your website on Sunday to see if you had a testimonial page but, couldn’t see one. I am sure you don’t require recommendations as your work speaks for itself (or should that be “sings”!) That said, should you ever need a reference, we would be more than happy to endorse your work.
Hoping 2013 is a good business year for you and of course a great year personally!
With warmest wishes
Liz (& Dean)
Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for everything that you did on our wedding day. The music was superb (as always) and your organisation of the photos was invaluable with our slack ushers!
We’ve had A LOT of positive comments about you since we got back, so we’re certainly glad we chose to have you at our big day.
Ele & Stu
We'll send you a proper thanks when we return from honeymoon but just wanted to take this opportunity to say how much we appreciated you yesterday!
We can't thank you enough for helping to make our day run so smoothly and for going above and beyond to keep us happy.
Our guests have all raved about how fab you were and you really made a good impression on my parents.
Thanks so much again, we hugely appreciated your effort and professionalism and will definitely recommend you to any people we know who are getting married!
Liz & Mark,
a.k.a. "The Bashford's!"
Sorry it has taken me such a long time to get in touch. I have waited for the newly weds to get back from Spain to get your contact details.
I would just like to give my thanks and also offer you a testimonial for your website.
I was best man at Chris and Sammy's wedding at Norwood Park in Southwell on 14th July.
It was the best wedding we have ever been to and to be part of their special day meant the world to me.
You helped the day run smoothly and to time. You were very encouraging in helping me to relax in the build up to my speech. Both myself and my wife were hugely impressed with your professionalism and the quality of your performance in the evening. Your guitar set and DJ ability was fantastic and added to the quality of the event! We will certainly recommend you to any friends or family that need a compare or DJ for their events.
Once again many thanks for helping my day run smoothly and I know Chris and Sam thought you were great too!
All the best for the future.
Richard and Rachel Strange
Hope your well
just wanted to say thank you for input on our Wedding day ... we had an amazing day!! ill write on your website saying thanks when i get a mo. :)
I just want to say a huge thanks to you for being a star yet again this year. Your advice and assistance from start to finish is always greatly appreciated and the Great Notts Bike Ride just wouldn’t be the same without your involvement anymore. I didn’t get chance to get up to the stage this year unfortunately, but what I could hear from around the event village was fantastic.
I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Perfect Motion (The Great Nottinghamshire Bike Ride)
Sorry we are a bit late with our thank yous. We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. You were really entertaining and everyone commented on how good you were. We had a great night.
Katie & Mat Barrowcliffe
Hope you are well.
Just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for spending our wedding day with us.. We loved the music and were so pleased we went ahead and booked you for our wedding. Your singing was truly superb and we had so many compliments from our guests about your fab voice. It really got the party started and got people on their feet (especially me!!) The reception would not have been the same without you, not only was your singing fantastic but the way you included the guests with your funny comments was sensational! Even announcing the cutting of the cake was very good of you so thank you for this. I could not have imagined my reception without you.
I do however need to apologise because I realised last week I hadn't even bought you a drink and I feel so, so bad for this. I am so sorry but forgot all about it. Hope you forgive me and you were not dying of thirst throughout your first set!
I am already thinking about having a first year wedding anniversary party and hope your available!!
Good Luck with everything in the future. If people want a reception with a difference and a more "personal" approach they should book you without a thought. We will not hesitate to recommend you Ben.

Just a quick note, now that the dust has settled, to say a MASSIVE thank you for your efforts on Saturday. It is very much appreciated and you received universal praise from everyone who attended!
If it's any consolation, the drunkard who apparently harassed you towards the end of the evening has made a full unedited apology via facebook!
A truly sensational effort and we would happily write a positive account for you/on your behalf, in the future,
It's Lisa's Mum here. I just wanted to thank you so much for your part in making Lisa and Andy's wedding day so special.
Your website is an excellent advert in how you can contribute to the big day. You certainly went over and beyond all expectations.
I was looking after the two youngest children (tucked up alseep in bed) from about 9.45pm so I missed your final contribution, but I could hear all the songs and entertainment, it sounded amazing. Everyone had a lovely time and said how much they enjoyed your music.
I hope you had a great time, you will certainly be recommended for any furture events.
Julie Bilcliff (last minute speech Mum!)
Just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to say a big thank you too you for all your great efforts on our wedding.... You we're fab. We had such a great day, wish we could do it all again it just went by in a flash. All the guests thought you we're brill
I'll pass on my recommendations if i hear of anyone after a wedding singer/dj.
May see you in the hunting lodge sometime.
Lyndsey & Richard
Thank you so much for such amazing music for our wedding day. From all your pre work to the music on the day you were fantastic. So many comments on how well you sang, your choice of music and how well you fit with the Hounddogs.

The new Mr and Mrs Coddington
Gorgeous Ben- you were perfect.
You turned a special occasion into a fabulous occasion. Our friends and family(teenagers to 80 somethings) have all said how brilliantly entertaing you are and we couldn't agree more. Not only do you have a beautiful voice and impressive strumming skills; you are great fun too. You sized up the guests and pitched everything perfectly. We loved that you came to meet us at home and we knew then that we trusted you to co ordinate the evening. I adored being called Lady Maria of Beal. Clearly you know class when you see it! Tee-hee! Next time I'm 50 we definitely want you to be part of it. We can't recommend you highly enough. Ben rocks- book him guys! Xxx
Maria and Clive. Xxx
Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for us at our wedding at Shottle Hall.
You were absolutely brilliant. The songs you played and sang were wonderful. It was so reassuring to have you there for the whole day. You really made the day go so smoothly and were such a big part of our special day that we will treasure for ever!
We can't wait to come and see you at one of your gigs soon.
Thank you for all your hard work. Hopefully see you soon!
Laura & Stewart Clare
Just a quick note to thank you for music at Kat and Stu's Wedding. The guests all had a great time and most managed to leave the hotel safely yesterday morning...tired but happy!
You play the guitar beautifully. A real treat to hear it.
David and Wendy Richardson

Lord and Lady Chard here :)
Just a quick email to say thank you for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful. Every single guest commented on how fantastic your singing and hosting of the day was, I think you have 2 new fans in our nephews Jordon and Lewis!!! Even though Jordon kept out staring you :) I enjoyed the fact you conspired with Cathy to give me a surprise song for our first dance along with setting up my brother as well. Your great sense of humour helped make the day that bit more special :)
Although we had no doubt that you would be fantastic, we could not have predicted just how fantastic! Our evening reception was amazing and 100% down to you. We will be booking you again when we have another excuse for a party and recommending you to all!
Many Thanks again,
Jon and Cat
(Priest House -28th January 2012)
Now that the fun of the Wedding, Christmas, New Year and Honeymoon are over i've finally got round to getting back in touch!
Got to say a BIG THANK YOU to you for all your help on our wedding day - from our meetings beforehand, to the day itself, you made a big chunk of worrying vanish for us and your performance on the day was fantastic.
With all your tips and guidance throughout the ceremony which made the day run so well, you made everything so easy and for us to relax and enjoy the day as best we could and can only say your services are second to none - it was a shame you were already booked for the date of my cousins wedding as we would have looked forward to it even more!
Keep up the good work - you were the highlight of our day.
Best wishes and hope to see you playing somewhere soon.
Mel & Woz Moss
Friday night at Risley Park was brilliant - you are incredibly talented, we enjoyed it so much as we were staying at Risley Hall and just walked up to the pub for something to eat so it was a very pleasant suprise. Do you ever play anywhere near us? (Cambridge).
Graham and Mandy Skinner
Just before we shoot off on our honeymoon thought I would drop you a quick thank you for yesterday. As I said last night I thought you brought everything together brilliantly. Lisa and I had a perfect day and all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed themselves. I think we had a good balance of structure when we needed it and the relaxed approach the rest of the time.
You contributed massively to making the day memorable for us both and we loved it!
Glynn & Lisa
Lee and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our little married hearts. Yesterday was the best day of our lives and you helped make that happen. You took control and sorted stuff out that you didn't need too. You were amazing. I'm just so sorry that I didn't get to enjoy your set as much as I did. Everyone commented on how fantastic you were. How amazing was it that Elton blessed us with his presence!!!! Thank you so so so so much. You are a great, talented, thoughtful and considerate guy. You really truly made our day so special. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I'm booking you in for my 40th in 5 years so keep it free.
Much love and hugs
Mr and Mrs Henshaw
Hi Ben ,
Just a quick email to say what a wonderful job you did for our wedding (28/5/11 woodborough hall). Everyone commented on how amazing you were, so thank you. Our wedding day went so smoothly and I think you had a helping hand in that. We could rest assured knowing that you would make our evening do amazing and you definitely did that.
Matt and I are hoping to see you soon at one of your Nottingham gigs. Take care and thanks again,
Hey hey, Happy New Year to you, your wife and 2 little boys!
Just wanted to thank you for making our wedding day brilliant! Everyone commented on how great you were! We had the perfect day and loved every minute of it! we couldn’t have wished for any more!
You really did a great job, not only did u keep our guests entertained all day and night, you put me and Yan at ease from the moment we met you! We knew you were going to be great-but on the day you blew us all away! :-) We are still talking about you now! You were fabulous!!!

Lots of love and Many Thanks,
Jessica, Yan and Freddie! ' The Ruddicks ' :-) x x x x x
I hope that you are well?
We are just writing to say a huge huge huge thank you to you for making our wedding day so special. We had such an amazing day and your support was greatly appreciated. Not only did you make the evening party so fantastic that we did not stop dancing all night but you were also so supportive throughout the day! We can not say thank you enough. Our guests had an amazing time and so many of them came up to us to ask us about you and to compliment on how good you were. We will definitely keep an eye on your website to see when you are playing locally because we will come and watch.
Thank you for everything.
Adele and James Hargreaves xxx
Just a quick thank you. You were amazing! Everyone is still talking about you and I’m working on my brothers wedding for you.
By the way, we had news last week; we’re pregnant! Wedding Night Baby!
It must have been the grooves!
Just a quick e mail to say a huge thank you for everything you did yesterday to help us have such a great day. We had such a fantastic time and you played a huge part in that and your advice on how to structure the day was perfect!
Ken + Jam
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being such a star at our wedding. We think you’re great and all of our guests agree!
You playing your guitar, singing, including my Brother and Sister in your set and your friendly banter all helped make our special day that bit more special.
We hope to stay in touch and are even planning to come to one of your gigs next year for Craigs Birthday.
See you soon
Graig & Pip xxx
Thanks for yesterday. You did us proud and everything was perfect. Thanks again soooo much.
Lorna & Rob
Thank you for being our wedding singer, the music was fantastic and loved by all.
Once again, thank you for helping to make our day so special at Woodborough Hall.
Love Patrick & Rashelle
It's a no-brainer really, Ben is amazing.
We were lucky enough to have his services at our engagement party in Nottingham and he was extremely professional, courteous and an excellent crowd pleaser. Ben sat us down beforehand and asked us if there were any songs in particular that we wanted to hear, he learnt them very quickly and belted them out much to the delight of our guests. We lost count of how many people asked us for his details after he had played, so that they could book him too. (Ben also got a regular gig at the venue after playing our engagement party, which was awesome!!)
Thanks to Ben, our party is still being talked about today, and we would recommend him without hesitation to anyone else. He is edgy, his talent is raw and his vocals are amazing. His rendition of 'The Killers - Mr Brightside' is better than the original, and if you ever book him....get him to sing 'Bon Jovi - Dead or Alive' - it's outstanding!
Cheers Ben, you're the bestest!
