Matthew is not just unique because of his record breaking achievements, his manner and charm never fail to make an excellent impression among the closest of friends and family.
His love of meeting people has nurtured an approach which understands the nuances of social dynamics to the point where he can read a room in seconds and effortlessly break the ice between people, creating pockets of conversation which fuel the already magical atmosphere of the wedding day.
Matthew has been the sole entertainment at hundreds of weddings (yes, he likes cake) and performed for thousands of people (he likes those too!). He has found there are three points during the day where showcasing his talents goes down best, these are; during the reception drinks, between courses of the wedding breakfast and the evening party.
