When Tom arrived to set up, it quickly became apparent that the photography and videography was being done by John Hudson and Kathryn Johansen of Absolute Media Weddings. Tom performed at John's wedding last December, when he and Jill Newey (also of Absolute Media) were married at Seaham Hall.
It was an absolute pleasure to sing for Vicki and Liam, who make a lovely couple and we wish them a superb honeymoon and a long and happy life together!
Next Saturday night Tom is back at Vercelli's in Hexham, so, if you haven't booked your table yet - now is the time! See you there.
As soon as he got back, he headed straight up to Elligham Hall, where he performed for Mark and Becca Graham at their wedding reception. They had a fabulous day weather wise, a wonderful venue for a lovelyy couple. We wish them all the very
“We knew Tom would be good, but he wasn't good, he was fantastic!
Tom was amazing! He really made the evening and the atmosphere was great!
Great set list, great voice and great interaction with our guests.
It wasn't just the two of us that thought Tom was great but our guests did too!
Everyone commented on how great he was!
Thanks for helping to make our day so special!”
Next public gig is a first for Tom at Davanti Italia, Whitley Lodge. If you haven't been before, come along and check it out - lovely staff, great food, and Tom will provide some fab entertainment. See you there!
Earlier in November, Tom had the great pleasure of singing for Rob and Sarah Thorpe at their Wedding Reception at The Riverside Lodge in Morpeth. Rob and Sarah make a lovely couple and have a terrific group of friends and family who made the night a great one for all concerned. Rob was kind enough to say afterwards:
Tom tailored his sets perfectly to suit our tastes, and even learnt two brand new songs for us in just a few weeks. He very kindly carried on long after he was supposed to finish, as everyone kept shouting for more!
As many people have since commented, Tom really did make the night, and he helped make our wedding day extremely special. We can't thank him highly enough, and would recommend him to anybody!”
Their photographer was a guy by the name of Mike Brown, who is fast becoming known in Northumberland for his great work. The photo of Tom at the top of this article was taken by Mike - watch out for more of his work on this website! Mike is such a nice guy we can heartily recommend him for weddings, family sittings, portraits - anything really! Check out his Facebook page.
Anyway, that's enough for now. We look forward to seeing you all in December in the run up to Christmas. Next stop is Marabini's on Friday 5th December.
Rachael later got in touch with Tom:
"Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for Saturday. Alex and I (and all our guests) thought you were brilliant and everybody loved you. You helped make our wedding day the massive success it was and we will definitely recommend you to everyone! We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. We loved the faxt you had people dancing during dinner and the kids had the best time following you around. Thanks again Love Alex and Rachael xxx"
On Friday night, Tom introduced Tynemouth to his own style of entertainment, and mixed some classical with some popular material at Sonero’s Italian Restaurant. They offer amazing value food, and friendly staff to go with it!
A.J. Bridal Wear are simply lovely people who offer a fantastic service, and brides will feel confident that they are in the best hands for that most important of purchases. If you are in the market for bridal wear - you have to go visit them, you won’t be disappointed. Jenny, at Little Larder has the answer - no matter what the question! Her cakes and truffles are just fabulous. Not only do they look superb, but boy, do they taste good! We were a little greedy today!
Tom’s next public appearance is on Friday when he will be singing at Vercelli’s in Hexham, and is looking forward to seeing you there!
These last two events did get us thinking, that Tom has got to know some excellent suppliers for weddings and events, and that, where we have been impressed, we should provide a link on our website - a list of our own recommended suppliers, which could help guide Tom’s clients. These will only be exceptional suppliers, who, in our opinion will provide an excellent service, and of course, will not be exhaustive - there are many suppliers out there whose path has not yet crossed with Tom’s!
Finally, yesterday afternoon saw Tom featured on Radio Tyneside’s “Geordie Hour”. Gary Hogg featured his duet with Anna Foster - “All I Ask Of You” - and promised more from Tom in the coming weeks. If you missed the show yesterday, it is repeated on Wednesdays on Radio Tyneside at 9pm on 1575AM.
If you are having withdrawal from Tom’s performing - you can catch him this week at lunchtime on Wednesday at Alnwick Garden Cafe or on Friday evening at Marabini’s in Morpeth.
Not only did Tom provide some two and a half hours of live entertainment, but he also provided eighties music through his PA system, whilst he wasn't singing. In addition he provided stage and dance floor lighting to set the mood for a memorable evening.
Mandy and Lee, were heading straight off on their honeymoon, but Lee did say that Tom's entertainment had exceeded their expectations - 'we couldn't have asked for better". We of course wish them a wonderful honeymoon and life together.
Last night, Tom Wyllie, North East singer was delighted to perform for Clare and Chris at their evening reception at Doxford Hall Hotel, Northumberland. By late afternoon, the sun was shining at the lovely venue and Clare and Chris had a great day.
Later, Clare and Chris kindly got in touch...
"Thank you for a brilliant vocal performance at our evening wedding reception last night at Doxford Hall. From the very beginning when we first spoke to Tom, to booking him for our wedding reception we found his level of service to be first class and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he was more than happy to go that extra mile for us. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed listening to you sing Tom, and we loved your interaction with our guests as you walked around, which many thought got them more involved. It was lovely to see a family working as a team together and making it an evening to remember for us.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone seeking a top class performer for any event and you have 2 new fans who will definitely be making a visit to Marabini's in Morpeth to see you perform in the future.
Many Thanks again
Chris and Clare"
We all wish Clare and Chris a very happy further together!
