I just wanted to say thank you for making my party such a success – everyone thought you were great and I love the photos.

Thanks very much

50th Birthday Party

Pressmen played the part brilliantly at a client's Mad Men party - set the scene in looks and antics and were totally accommodating in terms of uploading photos for guests to see on a screen on the night as well as making available photos to buy easily and cheaply off their web site.
Thoroughly recommend their services.
Sue Matthews, Countess Marquees
We thought the fake paparazzi would add an element of drama to our red carpet event at a cinema in Central London and we are right! Our guests had such a blast and all six of the fake paps we used on the night were absolutely brilliant in engaging with our guests. We received the photos from the night promptly and were able to share them with our guests sooner than expected. I would definitely use the fake paps again for my other events and would wholeheartedly recommend the services of CJ Entertainment. Thanks again!

Hi Melvyn and Chas,

Just wanted to Thank you both again for helping to make our "James Bond" party go with a swing!! You really got things off to a good start and far exceeded our expectations! You were so friendly, you had us relaxed and ready for our evening in no time.
Everybody entered our home laughing and smiling which is exactly what we were hoping to achieve. How could things go any better?
Guys, you were great! Not only pressmen but doormen too! You took the pressure off us and enabled us to put our guests first.
Loved you! Would highly recommend you! Want to do it all again!!!!!!! Hope we do!

Very best wishes and hope to see you again in the not too distant future,

Clive and Gill XXX

P.S. Would happily recommend you both to anyone. Don't hesitate to contact us.
Definitely a great company to go with for your corporate events, the photographers were professional yet highly entertaining. They were able to create a social atmosphere and make people feel glamorous. We would recommend this company for any corporate event. A lot of  great pictures from the night

WTM (World Travel Market) is over and I just wanted to say a big thank you again for taking your time to come over and cover our Reception at the Crowne Plaza lastweek.
Sorry I was running around like a headless chicken and did not really have time to say 'Good-Bye', but thanks a lot for the DVD which is fantastic. All guests were very impressed and it's always a great success to have you at our events.

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all the effort you made for my birthday. I had an awesome 21st and you were able to capture the moments that will be remembered forever even though some guests may have forgotten what they did by the end of the night! The pictures were lively, fun and your enthusiasm definitely added to the atmosphere. You were very flexible and made the guests feel like real celebrities. The personal touch service before, after and during was exceptional! The next time I have a party I will have you on speed dial!!!! Thanks once again!

Dear Mel and Chas

Well, what can I say?  You absolutley exceeded all my expectations!  I loved the way that you interacted with the kids and their response was fantastic. You really made Aimee's party one to be remembered, not just by Aimee, but her friends and their parents (or management team) as well!  I know that the young guests were enthralled by the paparatzzi as they arrived at the party. It cetainly did cause a bit of a traffic jam in an otherwise quiet road.

It is quite amazing what one can find through surfing the net, and I know that I was lucky enough to find two real gems.  
I have to compliment you on your most efficient service - same day photographs.  We have enjoyed re- living the moments, all captured so brilliantly by you guys.

We were delighted to have you at this event and will definaltey hang onto your number for any future parties/ celebrations.

You were simply fantastic, thank - you.
Warm regards
Janice Epstein

Re: The SAS Professional Conference

On behalf of our client SAS UK and ourselves, we would like to thank you for the outstanding contribution that the Paparazzi made at the SAS Professional Conference.
It was noticeable from the very outset the positive response and entertainment value that you created amongst a highly discriminating audience.
At our follow-up meeting with the SAS marketing team, we also noted how impressed they were with the high quality of photography and in your ability to capture the ‘moment’
We enjoyed working with you and look forward to continuing our association with you at other events.

Kind Regards
 Trevor Liley
Managing Director

Hi Melvyn, Hi Chas 
Thank you so much for last night. The clients loved it and you really helped all the guests get in the mood of the 1920's as soon as the entered the party, great work.

Kate

Just a quick email to thank you for your superb pictures you took of our 1st Birthday Party. I was amazed at the quality and the atmosphere you added to the evening. I have passed our link on to all of our guests that they have commented on how wonderful everything went.

I will be sure to book you again for any future events.

Kind Regards

After nervously deciding to spend more on professional photographers for our launch of the Aston Martin DBS in August this year, I can say with great delight that deciding to use the services of Pressmen was the best money we have ever spent on this element of an event.
Not only were the photographs just what I had wanted, capturing the event and guests fantastically, Mel and Chas brought great entertainment and fun to the evening, which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Thank you both for being so easy to work with and helping make our launch the most successful event for us yet!

Hi Guys

Thank you so much once again for not adding something to my Husband's surprise 40th Birthday party, but for making it! You were fantastic from start to finish, quite where you get your boundless energy from I don't know. You made all my guests roar with laughter and made them feel so very welcome. Almost 400 photographs were taken in little over 4 hours, that is amazing work. What did my guests talk about for days later, the chocolate fountain? The live band? The bunny girls? No, the Pressmen! I was inundated with requests of who you were, where you were from and how they could book you. Exceptional value for money and both Mel and Chas judge how you want the event to go by having pre chats with you and your every wish is taken care of and I could relax knowing they were doing a superb job. CD given to me on the night (Still don't quite know how they managed that!) and pictures on the website within a day with a link provided so you can share with your guests and laugh over again. What more can I say apart from I highly recommend these 2 fabulous people with a cracking sense of humour. I am more than happy to speak with anyone who is even hesitating on booking the Pressmen. Mel, Chas sincerely from the bottom of my heart thank you both so much for MAKING our night!
Love you both to bits and perhaps one day our paths will cross again.
Take care

Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for all of your hard work, and the pictures are fantastic! Not only did you capture the moments, but you helped create them - the paparazzi staging at the entrance was great and exactly what we were looking for, the guests certainly felt like celebs on Saturday!! The slide show was yet another key element of the night, so thank you for making the time to do this in-between the "photo-shoots!" Great work guys, I hope to work with you again in the not so distant future.

For now, take care.
Kindest Regards,
Eve and the AYMYM team (For LG /O2)

I would like to thank you both for such an amazing job.  I cannot wait to see the pictures.
 
I thought that you both fitted in so well with our party especially with the whole forties/fifties feel of the night, it was perfect!
 
Many thanks again.

Thanks again for your services on the 12th December, loads of positive feedback!
The Pressmen were definitely one of the highlights of the evening. Their banter got fantastic reactions from our guests, which resulted in brilliant photographs.
We would highly recommend them for any party or event and will definitely use them again in the not to distant future!

Thanks again

"We were refreshed by their attitude, commitment to our theme, stamina and delivery. Extremely believable characters, and likeable with it. The end result photographs were outstanding. Providing our very special corporate event with that added sparkle and element of surprise. Reassuringly professional, with an ability to work under pressure to our ever changing brief, a brilliant job from all of the Pressmen and a delight to work with!"

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to both you and Chas for your brilliant work at Verity, Kerry and Harriet 's party last weekend.  
Whilst it was wonderful to be able to share and enjoy the night with them, to then have captured the overwhelming pleasure and happiness in pictures is invaluable.  You were also a proper birthday surprise for them and more than met my (exceptionally high) expectations!!!  
Hopefully you enjoyed yourselves a little amongst the youth and Wiltshire rain.  You obviously got back unscathed as the website proves.   Many thanks and you can be sure that I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you both (especially to anybody mad enough to be present at an 18th birthday party!) quite excellent.  
Best regards   Graham   And Verity, Kerry, Harriet and Ewan!!!!
My thanks to you and Ray for your contribution to my Masked Ball on Saturday night. I've already put (most of) the photographs on the web and had a number of responses from people saying what fun it all was. And we loved your Tango routine - it got people up and moving again after food, which was great.

Thanks again.

I would like to thank Melvyn and Chas for joining us at our Student Annual Dinner, the event was a great success, made more so by the presence of the Pressmen. They both looked the part and produced some fantastic pictures, with everyone commenting on how much fun it was to have them around.

Dear Chas and Melvyn
Thank you so much for your major part in making our party on Saturday such a success.  We've had loads of positive comments from our guests about your role and your great photographs, so many thanks for making the journey up to Cheshire!
Many thanks again for your professionalism and enthusiasm on Saturday.

Kind regards

Our company's Oscar Night was a roaring success and it is only just to award some of the credit to our two charasmatic paparazzi, Anna and Tim, who immediately put our guests at ease with their charm and wit and captured the best moments of the evening with superb photography.  A few days later and we were presented with a diskette that will keep the memories of a great evening alive.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend pressmen.co.uk.

My name is Joanne and I was one of the organisers of the Air France/KLM Christmas party you recently attended at Pinewood Studios on 15th December.

I would like to offer my thanks and congratulations for helping to make this such a fabulous event.  I have received so many compliments and I am sure it wouldn’t have been so good without you.

I have looked at the pictures online and they are great, so good to see as some of these moments would have been missed and forgotten!

Just a quick email to say thanks for your Fake Paparazzi guys on Monday, they were great!

Thanks,
Topshop/Topman Events, Kyra Oates,
Firstly thankyou very much for helping make saturday evening go so well.
Already a number of friends have called to say how much they enjoyed it and especially the unique arrival with your Papparrazzi interruption.We have laughed about Julia's parents and uncle being told they were from 'coronation street'!
It really added a great start.
The photo record is great.

"They were real professionals and made the guests feel relaxed. They know how to interact with people to get a good photo and they really looked the part."

 It was an absolute pleasure to share our special day with you both. All your hard work was very much appreciated and went far beyond our expectations. With costume changes and so many extra suprises along the way, we and our guests were in awe. You truly captured the magic of our wedding in your pictures, which you put into our beautiful book and CD telling the story of our day, which we will treasure. A unique, wonderful approach to Photography, we would highly recommend you both, you made our day!

Thanking you again, Wayne and Ruth Shaw
We just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the work you did for us on the various gigs over the Christmas period.  The feedback from our clients is pleasing to say the least - not only have they have been impressed by your mix ‘n’ mingle skills but the response to the photographs has been brilliant.  Obviously none of them expected the CD/website images to be of such a high standard and, in the words of the event organiser involved, the album which was produced for the ICC Birmingham job “blew them away”!

The Pressmen have huge potential and we look forward to working with you and taking the act into new directions . 

Best wishes
