“My job is to help all the guests relax, laugh and have fun. I’m all about creating special memories that people will remember forever.”

Chris has been performing at weddings for ten years. He first moved to Edinburgh after falling in love with the city during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

“Weddings have always been my favourite events to perform at. Sometimes wedding guests don’t know each other and are a little reluctant to join in the celebrations. I make sure everyone is ready to party.”

“As well as performing at weddings throughout Scotland, Chris also often performs at corporate parties and private events.

The awards were initially voted on by members of the public and the final winners chosen by Bridebook’s expert judging panel.

Bridebook said that “with so many incredible and talented suppliers, picking the final winners was difficult to say the least.”
