My favourite part of the wedding day… Honestly, I loved it all so much it’s hard to pick just one part. There was a moment when I looked out from the top table and saw so many of our amazing friends and family sat out there in front of me and I felt so happy. But I think if I had to pick one thing, it would be the band! Tim Hassall and his band made our wedding! From the minute they started playing every single guest was on the dancefloor and none of us stopped all night! At one point I got persuaded to start a little conga with a girlfriend and when I turned around every single one of the guests had joined in. A wedding conga! There’s actually video footage which still makes me laugh out loud. To see everyone having such a great time was fantastic. It’s what we wanted, so we’re pretty happy…and we can’t thank Tim enough. He’s a fantastic musician and entertainer and we desperately want to have another party of some kind so we can book him again!


Good afternoon

I wanted to drop a quick note now that I am back in Dubai to say a huge thank you to you Tim for playing at our wedding last month. It was fantastic, everything we had hoped for and all anyone can talk about is how amazing our singer was!

Many Thanks again!

Kindest Regards



Dear Tim,

Thank you so, so much for playing at our wedding. You and you band are all beyond fantastic, everyone absolutely loved every minute of it.

We looked around at one point and every single one of our guests (from 3 year olds to 60 plus) were on the dancefloor – that was because of you! Every song was perfect for our ‘crowd’ and we were all genuinely sad when it came to the end of your set.

You were incredibly friendly and professional from the start and I’m so glad we left the playlist in your very capable hands. You knew exactly which songs to play to keep us all dancing.  We even had a ‘wedding conga’ – a sure sign, if any, that everyone was having an amazing time!

Our guests still haven’t stopped talking about how fantastic you are, and I honestly can’t wait to have another party so you can come and play for us again.

You made our wedding, thank you.

Sonja and James


Dear Tim,

We were more than pleased with your presence and performance at our wedding. It was the best wedding gift! (Thank you Kiki)
From the moment you came in through that door to meet us at our venue, you turned our stressful atmosphere into a moment of laughter. You were already a part of us!

Performance-wise, it was perfect. Your repertoire is varied and everyone was very pleased with the song selection and mood. I believe people began to dance already in the cocktail hour.
Adding to that your own touch of style was very charming :)

We would also like to thank you for taking initiative on all the music flow, that was very helpful for us to know that we could depend on your opinion and guidance with the music program, from the isle song to the cocktail hour.
The next day was also a blast and everyone loved you!
You truly made a difference in our wedding moments.

Thank you. And let’s see you around in Dubai!


Nadine & James


Hi Tim,

Apologies for the delayed email but we have only just returned from Honeymoon.

Caroline and I just wanted to thank you again for your fantastic performance at our wedding. Your music was absolutely brilliant and really made our ceremony and cocktail reception. All our guests were highly complimentary of your set, and thanks again for also accommodating our requests.

Kind regards,


Just to second that – you were absolutely amazing at our wedding! We’ve had so many compliments and positive feedback from all of our guests, it’s been incredible. If you ever need a reference you just let us know.

Thank you again and we really look forward to seeing you perform again!
Best of Luck with everything :)

Dear Tim Hassall,

We were so pleased to work with you once again. Thank you for the wonderful entertainment you provided at our client’s wedding in Dubai on 7th April 2016. Even a few days after the wedding the client and their friends and relatives still talk about the wonderful evening and enjoyment your music selection brought to their evening.

We wish you all the best, and will definitely work with you in the near future.

Once we saw Tim perform at a mutual friend’s wedding in 2014, we knew he’d be amazing for our reception too. It also helped that Neil & Tim have known each other for years! From the get-go, Tim was super helpful & professional – him & the band even learned 2 new songs for our first dances. Of all the elements involved in wedding planning – this was something that neither Neil nor I had to stress about at all, thanks to Tim & his band.

From the first song till the last – the band had the guests on the dance floor, and they’re still raving about them days later. A special shout-out as well to Toma Hristov of TH Sound, who was recommended by Tim for providing sound support.

Many thanks for helping to make our day so special!

Much Love,
Neil & Sakhi x

Tim and his band played at our wedding in December 2015. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a great band. He’s a true gent, easy to deal with and helpful with the event planning. I received more compliments from our guests on the choice of band than I did on any other aspect of the wedding! Tim nailed down the mood of each part of the event and played just the right music to match. I’ll never forget his rendition of the James Bond theme which I had specifically requested for our grand entrance to the reception. Thanks very much for all your hard work!
All the best,

Dear Tim,

Thank you so much for the perfect evening.

Your voice sounds amazing and the songs you chose for us were all my favoruite.

I never thought that a Nirvana cover in acoustic guitar can be so wonderful.

Also I got many compliments from my guests regarding the Singer-You- and your repertoire. Many of the guests know you already and all were excited to see you.

I wish to see you again and to invite you for another performance later on- as I believe you can sing not only on weddings but on birthdays and corporate parties.


A sincere thank you for your absolutely beautiful singing at our wedding, you really did make our day so special, and your music was simply amazing! Our guests are still talking about your performance during our cocktail reception. Your professionalism leading up to our big day, along with all the tips and advice you gave to us both was truly appreciated. Thank you so much Tim and we wish you all the best for the future!

Timmy has been a close friend for many years and having him play at our wedding was very special for both of us. He has a charm, character and charisma that is like no other and this comes through in his music. The music that he sings comes from the heart whether he is singing his own songs or covers. The music Tim played at our wedding was a huge element of making the day so incredibly special. When my beautiful bride walked down the isle, hearing Tim play was the icing on the cake to our perfect wedding. Both my wife Zoe and I felt so blessed to have Timmy singing from his heart and soul on our special day!


Hi Tim,

Thanks for making our wedding so memorable by performing our favorite songs with a Tim twist :) all our guests have commented on how relaxed and romantic the scene was as all the guests arrived, and how much they enjoyed listening to you as I was an hour late! The ceremony music was beautiful and you did Katy Perry justice with Teenage dream. Your experience shone through that day when you adjusted the timings of the songs so the ceremony flowed nicely. My mind was at rest knowing you had it all under control. I would highly recommend your service to anyone looking for an extra special way to start their big day.

Thank you

Finn & Tom


Hi Tim,

Just wanted to say thanks so much for music and all that you did on the wedding day to make it so special! Everyone raved about the band!

Best of luck and looking forward to seeing more of your performances around Dubai!



Hi Tim,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing for us on our Wedding Day, we had an amazing day, and you contributed to that, the songs we chose you performed perfectly, there were tears from many guests when you sung during the Wedding ceremony it was so beautiful, everyone was very impressed with your performance during the cocktail reception, it was a perfect Wedding Day for us.

Thank you again for all your help Tim you are a star, we wish you all the best for the future.

Kindest regards
Jenna & Jack


Tim played for our wedding in Bali in July 2014. We have heard Tim play many times before and and we were not disappointed at our wedding. He is incredibly talented. Not only is he a fantastic musician but he also is able to read a crowd. Knowing when to pick up the mood or take it easy. We received lots of feedback about how good the music was on the night. Having a great musician is really the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone thinking of using him at their wedding.



Dear Tim

A huge thank you for your performance and all you did to make the our wedding reception so special. It was perfect. You were a really big hit with our guests, who have given rave reviews on your performance, and my new husband was really impressed with you ‘cutting it live’! I hope that you enjoyed the evening too and were able to catch up with some of your old friends there too.

Best wishes for the future and hopefully we will catch up soon.

Kindest regards

Heather and Mike


Hi Tim,

I hope you’re well.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your performance yesterday, you were amazing and we had such positive feedback.

Look forward to working with you in the future.

Kind Regards,



Hi Tim,

We would just like to say a massive thank you for performing at our wedding, we can honestly say your performance was unbelievable and made our wedding you went out of your way to make it special for us and for that we wanted to say a massive thank you. From playing in the room for me to actually singing and playing.

Thank you again and see you soon
All our love
Mr & Mrs Hughes <3


I have no hesitation in recommending Tim and his band ‘Friends With Benefits’ for private or corporate events. They sound great and they kept our wedding guests on the dance floor, so much so that everyone was left shouting for more!

I found Tim in particular to be extremely reliable and helpful, and on top of it all he is a really personable and friendly guy.



Hi Tim,

Saul and i would like to thank you making our wedding day so special with your beautiful music.

Right from the moment i contacted you you were so professional, organised, helpful and kind. I really appreciate all the effort and time you took to visit the venue well before the day to make sure you knew how to set up. I was so relieved to have found someone so experienced who knew exactly what to do as i didn’t have a clue, i wish that everyone we dealt with for the wedding was as helpful as you!

On the day we had so many compliments from our guests at how great the music was. You made the ceremony so romantic and created the perfect vibe for our reception dinner, lovely and relaxed. I loved that we were able get a little dance floor happening by the end of the evening, everyone had so much fun. You knew exactly what we wanted!

Thank you also for learning my favorite song for me to walk down the aisle to, it made the experience so personal and special, just what i always dreamed of.  

We wish you all the best for your future, you really are excellent at what you do.

Georgia and Saul


Hi Tim,

Myself and David wanted to take the time to thank you for playing such a big  part on our wedding day.

You were fantastic, professional, organised and always happy and positive in the run up to the day and on the day itself. It was an absolute pleasure to have you with us on the day. You personally set the mood for how the wedding reception would go. Everybody was blown away by your voice and your enthusiasm. The reception was chilled out and fun for everybody and that was your influence. All our guests remarked on how lucky we were to have found somebody like you, that was just ‘perfect’ for the day.

If anybody is reading this testimonial and wondering if they should have Tim on their wedding day, I am personally contactable to offer a reference. There are no words to describe how fantastic Tim was on the day and in general is as a person, and I would personally recommend him 1 million times over.

Thank you again Tim for the positive vibes and for relieving me of any stress or pressure.

Myself and David wish you all the best for the future

Love Jo and David xxxxxx

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything that you did to be a part of our wedding. Although we only found you a couple weeks before our big day, from the moment we spoke you were so courteous and kind, really professional and a breath of fresh air compared with all of our dealings with other bands. I cannot tell you how impressed we were when we asked for you to send us through your repertoire and a 24 page document came through. Amazeballs. On top of that we asked for 3 different songs to be played during our ceremony and without a moments hesitation you assured us it would be fine. Your playing at the ceremony and the cocktails reception was perfect, the exact vibe we wanted for the day and all of our guests absolutely loved it, they kept coming up to us on the day saying how good you were and so many emails mentioning it after too. We had arranged that you would be able to leave the day at a certain time, but I am sure I saw you a good 90 mins later just talking with the guests and having a good time. It was brilliant. I fully recommend anyone who needs live music for any sort of event to contact Tim. He will not let you down and you will see your own glowing testimonial on here straight after.

From Mr & Mrs Clarke


Dear Tim,

Deb and I wish to thankyou so very much for your contribution to our special day. As you know Deb and I had previously heard and enjoyed you perform, so we were very excited when we first spoke to you and you confirmed you would be available to entertain during our wedding celebration. It was a pleasure to meet you and your sound technician Ali. We were immediately comfortable with you both, and knew that you were in sync with our aspirations for the day, and appreciated your good suggestions that made the sound setup just perfect on the day.

All our guests appreciated your music during the blessing, the cocktail drinks and the wedding dineer. We have had many compliments specifically relating to your entertainment. As you know, Deb and I gave only little direction to the specific music we wanted you to play, and this is testimony to our belief in you that you would know what would work for the moment, and you did not let us down at all!

Deb and I are particularly grateful that you helped us with microphones and PA equipment for use during the blessing and the wedding speeches, and this worked perfectly on the occasion.

Thanks also to Ali for supporting my big entrance on camel back to the sound of Lawrence of Arabia. That worked a treat and I hear every single one of our guests thought this was novel, hilarious and befitting of the location, and you guys were a part of making that happen.

Should you ever need a verbal reference for any prospective client considering your services, please just ask. We will be only too happy to give you a big thumbs up!

Thanks again
Deb & Jason


When we first heard Tim playing we knew that we would love to have him play at our wedding. Booking Tim was the first thing we did once we set a date. Music was really important to us and from our first meeting Tim really understood what we wanted and spent a lot of time with us going through the music and the feel we wanted for our big day. Tim has an amazing repertoire and so we were able to have a really great set list with something for all our guests.

Tim was so easy to work with and is a lovely guy all round, he really went the extra mile for us. We had Tim playing from the time guests arrived, through our ceremony,  the cocktail hour and for our first dance. All together he played for nearly four hours. Everyone loved every minute and he even had people up dancing during the cocktails. 

We would wholeheartedly recommend having Tim play at your wedding, it is definitely one of our favourite memories of the day and the beautiful live music is one of the things people commented on most during and after the wedding. 

Thank you Tim !

Omaya & Aryeah

Dear Tim,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you for making our big day such a success.

I will never forget the day I first heard you play in the Wharf Restaurant at Madinat Jumeirah whilst I was dining with my wife.  Within hearing you play 2 songs we had both decided that you MUST play at our wedding.

Working with you was nothing but a breeze. Leading up to the Wedding you reduced a lot of our organization by simply interpreting exactly what we needed, this made it so easy and such a pleasure to work with you.

I have to say that as our wedding did not only have a mix of different age groups to young and old but also had a mix of different races and cultures.  Normally I would imagine that it would be a nightmare to not only select the right type of music but also to ensure the right playlist is pre-selected.  I put so much faith in you to deliver this without giving you any suggestions or directions for music, and as expected you exceeded our expectations and created an atmosphere and evening that people still speak about today. Our only disappointment was that we didn’t book you for the entire evening.

Tim, I wouldn’t have any hesitation recommending dubaiweddingsinger.com to anyone who is getting married in the future.  We only wish we could do it all over again!  You are a true professional and simply a gifted musician in so many ways.  A bride and grooms dream for Wedding entertainment.

Keep up the good work,

Ian and Karen.



Hi Tim,

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for your set on our Wedding Day. We had the most amazing day and you certainly contributed to that!

The songs we chose for you to play were played to perfection and we couldn’t have asked for anything better!

You absolutely made it for us so thank you and hope to see you again, playing in the future!

Take care for now.

Regards and Best wishes from,

Mr and Mrs Atkinson


My wife and I got married in the dunes of the desert just out of Dubai, in April 2010, and Tim played at both our ceremony and the reception after the wedding.

For the reception, Becks and I picked a few songs that were really special to us, and Tim played those during the signing of the registrar. The music he created made it feel very special for the pair of us as all of our friends watched on.

I think the highlight was later in the day though, with Tim playing to the crowd after the ceremony as we had cocktails and watched the sun set over the sand dunes. He really has a beautiful voice and engages with the crowd to set a happy vibe.

Guests at our wedding are still talking about the music. It was one of the highlights of our day, and it was everything my wife and I had asked for and more. Tim was a genuine pleasure to work with; relaxed and professional…which is everything you need during the manic lead-up! I’m sure one of these days Tim will make his mark on the music world, and Becks and I will be saying ‘he played at our wedding!’

 Thank you so much for everything Tim!

James and Becky




Tim, Tim, Tim ……..  Just to give you an outline of what we wanted our wedding day to be. We wanted an extremely relaxed but very chic and stunning ambience. We wanted our guests to enjoy the taste of a very relaxed musical side to our wedding, without the typical band and DJ throughout the entire reception. One of my very dear clients put me onto the amazing sound that was Tim, and he really played to our requirements above and beyond expectation.

Before the wedding date I sent Tim a play-list of all our favourite artists, that were from many genres, and he made them his own even putting a contemporary spin on a lot of my favourite pop artists.

We had our reception at the Ritz Carlton starting with champagne and divine nibbles on the lawn overlooking the beach. I would have to say that out of anything throughout our special day, Tim was the highlight for us and our guests.

Tim really set the scene for our day as the sun went down. I truly wish that if I knew Tim as well as I do now, musically I would have ensured that he stayed with us the throughout our dinner and not just for the 3 hours he played for us on the beach – because 3 hours of Tim is just not enough!!!!!

I would highly recommend Tim for any occasion that involves amazing musical talent. Tim was extremely professional and I would never think twice about asking him to perform at any special moment in our lives!!!!

Thanks & Best regards

Tony and Kelly



Rachael and Mike

And we said, ‘Can you play at our wedding?’

And Tim said ‘You bet’. And he did it,

like a Sweet Thing, like a true professional,

with the heart and the soul, and everyone sung with him.


Tim played Van Morrison’s Sweet Thing during the signing of the register at our wedding in a country church in the UK.


Dear Tim,

Thank you so much for making our anniversary so very special!

Much love,

Ian and Jan xxx

P.S. You Rocked!


Hi Tim

Just wanted to send a quick message to say thanks very much for the Harvey Nichols event last night.

Great feedback and everyone was very happy.



Hi Tim,

I hope you are well.

On behalf of the team I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help at the Family Fun Day event yesterday. The guests were thoroughly entertained including the VP of the company, who was signing your praises as he left the event last night.

We look forward to working with you in the near future.

Thanks again,



Hi Tim,

It was great having you there, I really enjoy your sound!

Next time it will be for longer for sure.

Thanks again,
