Good evening,
We just wanted to email to say a huge thank you for the wonderful DJ service you provided at our wedding on 12th August 2023 at Cartmel Old Grammar.
The evening was everything we wanted it to be, and this is down to the expertise and service you provided. The karaoke was certainly a huge hit!
We also want to say thank you for the video you sent – this was a really special touch and it was amazing to re-watch the evening and see how much fun everyone had.
We will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.
Thanks again.

The online portal to prepare for the wedding was clear and easy to use.
We had some fairly varied requests and Mike made them all work together as one playlist really well.
We had a couple of our custom songs labelled back to front but it was very quickly sorted out and didn't affect the flow of the evening
On the day I was incredibly pleased with the way our requests had been met and how the energy in the room was kept up.
Mike had a great sense of humour (which you'd need for my mad family) and read the room really well for what to put on next between requests.
I thought the request slips were a great idea and it meant that some more shy people at the wedding got to put their song requests in too and there really was something for everyone.
I was even more pleased to be surprised with a video of some of the highlights of the evening so that we can relive them while we're waiting for our photos.
A huge, huge thank you from myself, my new husband and our guests. We had a great night and highly recommend Motiv-8!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our disco on Saturday night at Hundith Hill.
It was a brilliant night and I appreciate how seamless it all was. Being able to choose songs beforehand is absolutely fab.
I did want to catch you before you left to say thank you but ended up getting waylaid by some very drunk people!
The video you sent of the dancing was absolutely lovely and occasionally hilarious!

Great communication We was happy to give free reign to Mike to play what he knows fills the dance floor, but their web portal allows loads of lists u can choose from, and lots of requests were on the night by our guests.
Mike was entertaining on the Microphone, keeping it personal by using our names .
Loved the fact he took pics and videos from his stage too which he sent over quickly.
The floor was packed from the moment he started to the very last song. Thanks again !

I've been to a few weddings over the years but this DJ is the best.
Mike knows his trade well and does it properly.
Good lighting effects Good video effects. And above all else a decent good quality sound setup.
You name it and he can play it. Motiv-8 was our dj at Broadoaks windermere for our wedding .

Hello Mike, Can I just say a massive thank you for Sunday.
The guests absolutely loved the quiz and thank you for playing my song requests. We all had such a amazing evening.
Thank you, for staying later as well. I will definitely leave a review.
I know you recorded video and took pictures, please feel free to use them in any way that helps your business. Once again thank you.

Mike is an absolute pro!
We requested a mix of very niche music in a range of languages for our faith-based British-Congolese wedding, and he took it all in his stride and made the night an absolute hit!
He got everyone dancing and was just the best person for the job.

Thank you Mike.
We had the best day surrounded by family and good friends - we travelled 2½ hours to have our perfect day in the Lakes and couldn't be happier with how our day went.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening reception, the kids loved being included with the games and the parents genuinely appreciated the effort put in too involve our guests of all ages!
My Aunt would have happily danced until the sun came up if she hadn't had to return home to London the following morning!
Thanks again for a great evening!

Mike exceeded all of our expectations not only during the planning of our wedding reception, but the day of the wedding.
Our goal was to get people out on the dance floor, and Mike did just that! He really understood our tastes in music and made it feel like OUR wedding, with OUR music.
I would recommend Motiv-8 to anyone and everyone, and am so grateful we had him!

Morning Mike,
Just wanted to say a big thank you for our Christmas party at Club Derwent in December.
Despite a smaller than usual turn out, everyone had a great time, and still talking about it.
All the best for Christmas!

We hired Mike after seeing him at a friend’s wedding at the Inn on The Lake, where I danced so much my shoe flew off!
We chose him for our wedding at Tullie House. It was such an easy and fun process to choose our music on his database and everything we wanted was played in a really good mix.
The light system he brings creates an instant party atmosphere and it was great to have some time for guest requests at the end.
He started with classic movie tunes as our wedding theme was cinema. A really lovely talented DJ that I would heartily recommend to anyone for any occasion.

Thank you for creating a great night for my 50th Fundraising Party.
You co-operated with my raffle & quiz and made sure the dance floor was filled by playing my favourite songs.
Projecting the photos I provided of me & my family throughout my life was amazing and the photos and video you captured throughout the evening are a great keepsake.
Debbie Whitfield

Thanks so much for being our dj - You kept the floor full and complimented the requested songs really well throughout.
Lots of the guest commented on how good the music was, and the broad appeal for anyone to dance to but still relevant to me and Peter.
Much Love Bev and Pete

Fantastic evening of our wedding - got everyone dancing and the props were very popular.
Mike was very good at mixing the songs into each other and playing a range of music for all guests.
Thanks for the unexpected video after too!
Pre-choosing songs/requests through their system was really easy, thank you.

We just wanted to say a big thank-you for helping to make our wedding so special last weekend.
One of our favourite memories is just before midnight when you played Take That NEVER FORGET and all of our wedding party serenaded us!
Wishing you all the best and thanks again.
Hello Mike,
I know everyone really enjoyed the party element on the night, and I would be sure to use you again if I am ever in the area organising as event which requires a DJ.
The venue let us down in a number of ways.
Anyways, many thanks again.

Hi Mike,
We received the DVD yesterday. Thanks for producing the most amazing DVD, and thank you so much for providing a great disco set up also.
The children were absolutely mesmerised by the display you put on and the slideshow of photos you produced throughout the day really caught the moments and were great to watch whilst the music was playing.
The video is absolutely amazing and we are so pleased you have managed to capture the whole day with our family and friends who attended.
Thank You. The Allans.

Hi Mike.
Please accept this as a big thank you for all your hard work at our wedding.
We are very glad we decided to use your DJ services for our evening function! Your added that special touch and your wedding quiz and props kept the party alive right from beginning to end (some of which you also captured on video for us).
Everyone loved the wedding video being played during the first dance and the fact that all the songs you played had been selected by our guests!
We extremely advise anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding to look no further than Mike @ Motiv-8!
All the best.
Helen & Gareth Williams.
Just a note to say thanks. Everyone enjoyed the disco and you played the music we requested.
Really couldn't fault anything and will definitely be recommending you to others.

Hi Mike,
I would just like to say a huge thank you to you for making my dads surprise 50th birthday party such a brilliant, successful night. Everyone commented on how good you were at entertaining and the quizzes went down a treat.
Our guests thought it was a great idea, allowing me to project the photos on the screen, it added an extra special touch to the night. Dad was rather amazed!
The children really enjoyed playing with the wigs and props at the front of the stage and I got some great photos.
My dad would also like to send you his thanks as you definitely helped him have a really good time. Dancing with inflatable guitars was the highlight of the night for him and a friend.
Hope to see you again at a future party! Many people have asked for your details!

We have had excellent compliments from our guests and have already passed your details to a friend of our who was at the wedding.
We thought that the ability to have a sizable influence over the play list over your web site was very useful, and was key to the enjoyment.
I loved the radio type jingle when you introduced was very professional.
Thanks again Mike you did a fantastic job.
Best Wishes, Nicola & Ian Wilson.
