Some testimonials from our Wedding Discos in Essex

A lovely thank you E-mail from Lisa and Luke relating to their wedding at Hylands House on Friday 23rd March when I was their DJ and toastmaster.


Hylands House wedding DJ and Disco Classic Nomad Disco and Light Show ExperienceHi Richard,  I hope you are well. We have returned from our honeymoon, which was amazing. We managed to fit so much in!

We'd just like to thank you for your excellent services as Toastmaster and DJ on our wedding day. You were extremely reassuring from the very beginning right up until the end of the day. Luke and I wouldn't have had a clue what was supposed to happen and at what time, but you made it run so smoothly. Neither of us felt stressed with you there.

The guests have commented on how friendly and brilliant you were. Your relaxed and light-hearted approach to things definitely made us and the guests feel at ease. We were watching the wedding DVD over the weekend and our video guy had filmed you encouraging the guests to cheer before we arrived at the wedding breakfast. I think all of us at the head table felt very reassured when you spoke after each of our speeches, asking everyone to clap again. We loved how you got the guests cheering and laughing. That's a real talent!

We really enjoyed the disco, as did everyone. There was music for everyone of all ages and you seemed to have gaged it perfectly. The dance floor was never empty. I was extremely excited when 'The Music Man' came on. 

Even in the lead up to the wedding, you were so helpful and it was lovely talking to you the night before the wedding. We really enjoyed getting to know you at the Indian meal too.

Once again, thank you so much for making our wedding such a special and memorable day. I was so nervous that something would go wrong on the day, but it didn't. It ran smoothly because of you. We have some photos of you, so will send them on. You're amazing.     Thanks again     Lisa x and Luke

On Monday 29th August, our disco had the pleasure of performing at the Reid Rooms, Essex, for the wedding reception and evening party of Jim and Keri. I recieved a lovely thank you e-mail from Keri and Jim which reads as follows:

Reid Rooms wedding breakfast set up for Jim and Keri with sound system out of viewDisco for wedding at the Reid Rooms in EssexDear Richard,   I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the work that you put into our special day on the 29th August at the Reid Rooms.


From the moment that we saw you right until the end of the day when you finished the set and started to pack your stuff away, nothing was too much trouble and how you could help us to put our minds at rest was fantastic. Your efforts at the start of the day with people who were struggling to tie the cravat and also the buttonholes was immensely helpful to me especially.


The help that was offered for the greeting line meant that it took all of the pressure off of the best man and usher which also enabled Keri and myself to relax and enjoy the greeting line.


What was a really nice touch was the way that you introduced everyone for us formally as they walked in to shake our hands, that was very unexpected and a really nice touch. Having the PA in the room really did help all of the not so confident speakers, enabling them to project their voices without even thinking about it.


Finally a huge thank you for the disco.


We have seen clips of the first dance and other parts of the disco and agree that everyone had a great time. Comments coming back from all of our guests is that if someone requested a song it was played the very next song to their surprise and happiness. Also I have to say that I noticed that when the dance floor emptied, the style of music changed very quickly which filled the dance floor again in no time.


Keri and I cannot thank you enough for making our day so special.   Many Thanks   Jim & Keri Hartwright

Disco for wedding reception evening party at Mulberry House, Ongar EssexClassic Nomad Disco at Essex Wedding PartyOn Saturday 29th January, our disco had the pleasure of performing at Mulberry House, just outside Ongar, Essex, for the wedding reception and evening party of Donna and Mat. I recieved a lovely thank you e-mail and then a thank you card from Donna and Mat which reads:

Hello Richard, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our reception such a success. We really did have a great time and we've had lots of positive comments from our guests too. Everyone said it's the best night they'd had in ages. Thanks for being so helpful and a big part of making it such a success.

We couldn't have asked for a better night and I'll be sure to recommend you should anyone I know need a DJ or toastmaster.  Thanks again Donna and Mat

Essex Wedding Toastmaster Richard Palmer with Bride and Groom Mulberry House Ongar EssexWedding Toastmaster Essex Richard Palmer with Bestman Mulberry House WeddingOn Saturday 21st August the Essex based Classic Nomad Disco and Light Show worked at Mulberry House, just outside Ongar, Essex, for the wedding of Hannah and Chris. I recieved a lovely thank you card from Hannah and Chris which reads:

Dear Richard, When Chris and I started planning our wedding, there was no-way we weren't going to have you as our toastmaster and DJ, having met you a few years ago when you were the toastmaster and DJ at my brothers wedding and then again for a close friend. We were able to see the passion you have for your job and we wanted that passion and experience at our wedding. So when we found Mulberry House and got a date, the next step was to make sure you were available, we were over the moon when you said yes. We knew from that day our wedding was going to be the best we could imagine. We were not disappointed, the whole day and evening was amazing and went without any hiccups, this was down to you and the fantastic team at Mulberry House. Chris and I felt extremely lucky we had the best people working at our wedding. Having you, David and John, working together was a real pleasure. Ricahrd you are a true gentleman and it was our pleasure to have you as our toastmaster and DJ at our wedding. We honestly cannot thank you enough. If somebody was to ask me one peice of advice about planning a wedding, I would say "Book Richard Palmer", it would be the best thing you do. Wishing you all the best for the future, with love Hannah & Chris xxx

Katie and Rob's Wedding Photographs Gaynes Park Barns 10th October Photography by my very good friend David Court of Court on Camera Photography, based in Epping

The guests arrived by public transport - on time, which is more than could be said for Rob who made a last minute dash. The ceremony was witnessed by both Katie and Rob's Mums. Following the ceremony the newly married couple went for a walk in the grounds of Gaynes Park before greeting their waiting guests. Following the Wedding Breakfast the speeches were held with Rob looking nervously on. The cake cutting ceremony proved to be a huge success with both Katie and Rob giving it their seal of approval. The first dance was performed with perfection Rob (Travolta) and Katie (Thurman) performed the classic made famous in the 1994 Quenton Tarantino film - Pulp Fiction.The "Dream Team" ensuring that Rob and Katie's day passed without a hitch were Mikaela from Gaynes Park (a big personal thank you for looking after us all), Andrew Morgan as Toastmaster, John Rose videographer and my good friend Richard Palmer providing the music with the Classic Nomad Disco.

New Years Eve Party at Warley Park EssexThe New Year's Eve Disco at the Warley Park Golf Club, near Brentwood. Essex

What a fantastic night.  There was a really electric atmosphere there, with everyone hoping to have a great night.  The members and their guests seemed to know that they were in for a party to surpass all parties. 

Having worked there earlier in December, you sort of "get a feel" for what you think they may like.  Well they were "up for it" and enjoyed a wonderful night. It was great to hear such complimentary comments such as, "You are the best DJ we have ever had here" and loads of sincere thank you's. 

Dear Richard,   Re:  New Years Eve 2008 At Warley Park we have a reputation for excellent service and providing our members and customers with good quality events.  Over the past year feedback has been extremely positive resulting in most of our events being sold out.  Comments received have been “very enjoyable”, “staff were excellent, food of very good standard”.    Following our New Year’s Eve Party, when you were our DJ, I have received comments such as “the best party I’ve been to”, “Everything was excellent – the food, the staff and the disco”, “The best dj ever to have played at the Club”.   Thank you for helping to make our New Year’s Eve Party such a success.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.   Nick Hawkins  General Manager

There is a short video clip on YouTube of a business awards dinner that we played at in Chelmsford, County Hotel.  Please click on the link below to look.

Unless otherwise stated, all the photographs on this site are our own, and have not been altered or enhanced.  We are trying to give you a true impression of how we present ourselves and our equipment.

Our main music library is based at our headquarters where we try to keep all of the most popular music in stock, but in the unlikely event of us not having what you want, we will buy it.  Our complete library has more than 230,106 titles, which we believe is the largest music library in the mobile disco business.  We keep updating the catalogue as new music arrives.  There is movement on a regular basis, as we continue to sort the music into appropriate sections.  The shelves on the main wall are 8 feet high and it is so good to have all our music library in one room.  This is only a part of our music stock.  On our main rig, we were taking out over 28 boxes of music, this equates to over 48,000 titles (please see the picture below for an indication of how much music we have in our library).

 Music Library for Esex Wedding DJ and Disco

We are very lucky to have the support of David Court who has updated the library picture, to give you a better indication of the size of our music collection.

We have a comfortable area for meeting our brides and grooms (please see pictures below). You can go through your plans for your day, discussing your music and your instructions, so that your day will be how you want it to be.  You are able to view past weddings that we have worked at, on a very large screen (84") with surround sound, to help you get ideas about your wedding day and what you would like us to do for you.  We have re-equipped the room to make it more comfortable and offer further services.

Essex Firebreather Richard PalmerEssex Toastmaster NSPCC FirebreatherNow for something completely different - 

The NSPCC   

At the English Toastmasters Association members meeting on Tuesday 21st October, we discussed working for charities.  This is an odd ball in the way that I have tackled it.  (and yes I am a toastmaster as well as a DJ)   I had a call from the NSPCC who needed help and fast.  They wanted a fire breather to do a stunt at the Colchester United Football Club at 10.00am today (24th October).  Well here is the photo of me in action.  I'm the guy breathing fire at the back. 

These pictures were taken by David, an excellent Essex Portrait Photographer at   

Now where does this lead to. 

They had an excellent Emerald Ball on Saturday 29th November at the Colchester United Football Club stadium and I was their toastmaster and what an excellent night out in aid of the NSPCC. 

I have had a lovely thank you letter from Katie at kat pr consultancy which reads as follows;- 


Richard is a knight in shining armour!

He stepped in at the last moment at what must have been a great inconvenience to himself - all in the aid of charity!  His help towards Colchester NSPCC has been amazing and he has a heart of gold. 

His skills as a fire breather are just awe-inspiring and it creates something 'that little bit different' to any event - I can heartily recommend him and it will get and keep people talking about our event for much longer than they would do otherwise!

As a toastmaster he is perfection and his all round willingness to pitch in and help in any way possible is just more than you could ever wish for!  Thank you from the NSPCC and Thank you from the Colchester Business Group and Thank you from me!    Katie Skingle   Chairwoman for the Colchester NSPCC Business Group

Please go to to see if you can help their group or make donations.

Just to prove that Katie is right about me in one of her comments, I have the picture of me in armour, although it was taken from my jousting days "a few years ago". 

I now find fire breathing much more spectacular and far safer than jousting, please see
