Get Wed was founded by Lisa and James McCann in September 2007. They first met on Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in 1999 and have performed together on ships, in hotels and theatres all over the UK. When their first daughter arrived, they decided to start their own business, utilising all their live entertainment skills. They now provide great DJs, live singers and dance lessons for wedding receptions, parties and corporate events across the Yorkshire, the North of England and the Midlands.
