Q1: Do you offer consultations for weddings?
Yes we do, however only for certain packages. Please see our packages page for more information. Meeting you to discuss one of your best days would be an honour. I believe meeting you both to discuss the finer details is very important to me. Also gaining each other’s trust will only make your day run easier. Creating these memories to last a lifetime is what we are here for. I will meet you in an around the Chippenham area or within 25 miles free of charge. If you are outside the 25 miles, I would be happy to meet you half way. Please do not hesitate to contact me on: http://platinummusicevents.co.uk/contact/
Q2: When do you advise to book you?
Availability over the next 2 years is limited due to the shear volume of bookings we receive. Once I receive the contract and deposit from a client, I cannot fulfil another booking. I am very loyal to my clients and this only builds trust. Clients have booked us 2-3 years in a advance. There are some VERY organised brides and grooms out there!

Q3: How long can you hold a date for?
Who is the DJ? Is it you or do you use other DJ’s?
Platinum Music & Events is run by my wife & I, Tom & Victoria Monteith. 9 times out of 10 we will both turn up to the event. We are both equally skilled DJs; however Tom does most of the DJ’n whilst Victoria takes photos of your evening. If you didn’t know, all our wedding packages come with FREE, yes, FREE evening photography.
Why is it free you ask?
When we started our business, we soon came to realise that as soon as the first dance was over with, the photographer leaves. We found at our own wedding that our best pictures, we the evening pictures when everyone was relaxed and enjoying the music. So we decided to add this as a free add-on for our clients, as we understand how much weddings add up. This is a thank you from us to you for booking us.

“Tom was absolutely amazing at our wedding reception on 18th June, nothing was too much trouble and he went out of his way to make sure everything run like clockwork! He stepped in taking photos when our photographer was late and is such a calming influence, which is saying something for a massive control freak like myself! I would not hesitate on recommending him and can’t wait until our next event to get him booked!!”Alana Law
