" Having not met in person any of Wake Up before the Big Day I was slightly nervous, but it couldn't have been a smoother journey! From the moment we booked to deciding on our first dance it was a pleasure to deal with Wake Up. Fantastic playlist and the dance floor was full from the first note. Thank You a million times over guys! I wish we could do it all over again. First Class. Mr & Mrs Fryer. "
