We take some time out with Entertainment Nation, an exciting entertainment agency with a huge selection of entertainment for your wedding. Whether you’re looking for pop brands or something more classical, Entertainment Nation will have something you’ll love.
Who are you, and what do you do? And why do you do it?
We’re Entertainment Nation: the UK’s most exciting wedding entertainment agency! We have a selection of the best wedding bands, musicians and performers to help brides and grooms celebrate their big day in style.
Why do we do it? We’re proud of the outstanding quality of the acts we represent and we give them the exposure they deserve, which in turn means we can provide happy couples with their dream wedding entertainment. Win-win!
What makes you unique? How do you stand out from the crowd?
Entertainment Nation was founded by professional wedding musicians with vast experience of performing at and organising live wedding entertainment. This knowledge means we are able to give perceptive advice and offer ingenious suggestions to guide couples through the unfamiliar process of hiring a band or other performer for their wedding.
We only supply wedding bands, musicians and performers of the highest standard – every act is thoroughly vetted by our team of music industry experts to ensure couples only receive acts who are talented, professional and reliable.
We know that nowadays people’s time is limited, especially with a wedding to plan, which is why we’re open for bookings and to give advice every single day from 10am until 10pm, allowing our clients to hire wedding bands when it’s most convenient for them.
When was the company formed?
Entertainment Nation is a young and energetic company. We were founded in 2013, and thanks to the commitment of our team to provide the best wedding entertainment booking experience possible, as well as our rapport with the talented artists on our books, we have grown rapidly. We’ve recently taken on more staff and upgraded our offices, and we have ambitious plans for the future.
What inspires you? Who in the industry do you look up to?
During their extensive careers as musicians in wedding bands, our founders had mixed experiences when working with entertainment agencies. Having witnessed first-hand the stress and disappointment caused by unreliable bands and unscrupulous agents, the Entertainment Nation founders were inspired to form an entertainment agency with an ethos of fairness and transparency to prevent poor service for couples who just want to enjoy their special day. The company was established with the mission to provide a peerless, hassle-free wedding entertainment booking experience for our clients. We’re proud of always being there for our clients when they need us, our collection of incredible bands and performers and our booking process, which is simplicity itself (give it a try!).
Do you let trends influence the service you provide?
We do indeed! If couples are calling up and enquiring about a new trend in music and we’re unable to give them what they want, we’re not doing our job properly! As a team, we’re immersed in the wedding industry as a whole, not just the entertainment side of things. We keep a close eye on wedding media like Ultimate Wedding Mag to ensure we are providing our clients with the entertainment they want. That’s not to say we’re followers – our staff are deeply involved in the music scene and anticipate what songs and styles will be popular, not just this year, but also in the years to come, so we are always able to suggest a band that fits the bill.
What is your greatest achievement to date?
Our greatest achievement to date is getting to where we are today: an established, trusted wedding entertainment supplier with countless happy customers. We feel validated with every glowing review received from a newlywed whose big day was enhanced by one of our bands or performers.
What do you see as the future of your Company?
To keep growing and become the UK’s most popular wedding entertainment agency by helping more and more couples to discover their dream wedding entertainment with us.
What else can you tell us about you?
