We were as shocked as everyone else when we heard that Wrapit had gone into administration leaving a lot of justifiably unhappy customers, to whom we extend our sympathy. We have thought long and hard about whether to mention that we were finalists in the 2008 awards. On balance, we believe that it is still worth including details of the award, which was based on comments sent in to Wrapit, made in good faith by genuine Function Junction customers. We would also like to add that Function Junction has no connection at all with Wrapit other than having entered their wedding industry awards.
Here then, is the e-mail we received from the Wrapit Wedding Industry Awards organiser.
To: Function Junction
As the National Winners have recently been announced on the Wrapit Awards website we can now release your voting comments which are detailed below. I'm sure you'll find them interesting.
(Please note, we are not able to provide the number of votes received or details of who voted, due to voting confidentiality.)
Thanks again for entering this year. We are already busy preparing for next year's events and very much look forward to your participation in the Wrapit Awards 2009. Details will be available on the website in July 2008 so watch this space!
All the best,
Wrapit Awards Manager

The staff at Function Junction,and everyone in the band were all so helpful, flexible and reliable which is just what you need when you've got alot to organise. I would and have thoroughly recommended them! Thank You Tara Houdek
* The band was so professional, on time, dressed for the occasion and with big smiles. We weren't allowed amplification at the venue, so the band allowed for this, and they played our special song for the first dance - think they may have learnt it especially for the occasion. Would highly recommend Function Junction - they were brilliant and were perfect in every way for the occasion. They get a big thumbs up from us and a huge vote for your award.
* All the bands we requested cd samples of sounded absolutely fab - making the choice very difficult! and the ones we chose were amazing - very professional and friendly and marvellous entertainers! And the guys on the admin side were also very attentive and on the ball. They were key to making the day a wonderful success, I can't thank them enough!
* We hired 2 bands through function jn - the don steel quartet and jezreels ceileidh band. Both were excellent! Jezreels even did the calling in both English and French (half the guests were French)and played every request. They really made the party!!I couldn't recommend them enough and everyone commented on the music!
* The whole experience of using Function Junction to supply the DJ and the outstanding band was top rate. The team were fantastic and we really felt comfortable leaving such an important part of the day for them to organise. Just need something else to happen so we can enlist Function Junctions help again!
* Function Junction provided a stress free service. The demo CD was of excellent quality and they were more than happy to give us information on up coming gigs so we could sample the band in the flesh before hand. The quality of entertainment was absolutley fantastic.
* Start of set was delayed by rainstorm, so band played straight through, played till later than booked, and were flaxible, polite, and friendly. Lovely lads!
* Always informing of current situation, very professional and a great service
* They provided the Bootleg Blues Brothers to kickstart our evening entertainment - everyone was on their feet and did not get off the dancefloor all night!
* So easy to deal with, excellent acts, high standards, great service, fantastic!
* Function Junction provided the most professional service of any supplier we dealt with for our wedding. They made it incredibly easy to pick our band, arrange logistics and were always there for us no matter what came up. The music made our wedding day- one of my favourite photos is of all the guests on the dance floor dancing so hard to the band you would think it was a top gig!
* Provided a fantastic evening entertainment and service from oth Function Junction and the band Cover Up
* Function Junction were extremely helpful and found us the most amazing band for our wedding.
* They found us a choice of bands at short notice and were very good at calming the somewhat "worried" bride that it would be fine... and ... it was.. the band was great.. the service from function junction was excellent!
* FJ provided an amazingly comprehensive pre-sales service really understanding our taste and needs then suggested 5 fantastic bands. The Bright Sparks then exceeded our expectations from the first dance before blowing everyone away with their last number - an unforgettabe musical experience.
* Function Junction were excellent, not only did they have a great selection of bands, they made finding the right one for us easy!
* Although only had 2 main jobs to do for our wedding, the car and the band, I managed to leave both late and started to flap. Function Junction put me at ease with the professionalism giving sample CDs, play lists, recommendations and reassurance about the band. I needn't have worried as on the day the band (Rollercoaster) far exceeded our expectations and got everyone of all ages on the floor and kept them going all night. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the band and that they were the best wedding band they had seen. I know people will always say good things about your wedding, however I have to agree. At the end of the night they played a better live version of "chasing cars" our first dance than the snow patrol CD I had used (not wanting to take a risk with the most important tune before hearing the band), again I needn't have worried. From start to finish it was an excellent experience and I would recommend both function Junction and rollercoaster to anyone, just don’t leave it too late!
* helpful at every stage and the band made our wedding. Would use again. EVERYONE was dancing all night.
* The band we booked through Function Junction were excellent. The support we received great support from all the staff in choosing our band (and they even told us where we could see our shortlist live in London so that we could make our choice based on seeing them in action). Excellent and friendly service.
* Function Junction were really helpful and the band they supplied was amazing and really made our wedding day. All our guests still talk about the band now!

* Function Junction were always reassuring, accomodating and gave us sound guidance. Our band and guitarist were real professionals, hugely talented and happy to tailor their act to what we wanted.
* They provided a courteous service and communications were great. They checked in with us again shortly before the wedding and the band were excellent.
* Function Junction was always exceptionally helpful and put my mind completely at rest that the band would be amazing - which they were! Loaded really made my day and kept everyone dancing all night.
* The band supplied by Function Junction surpassed our exopectataions. The company kept in contact with us throughout the run up to our big day. We felt completely assured that we had booked a fantastic band with an extremely professional and competent company.
* FJ supplied a FANTASTIC band. The music was great and everyone commented on how good they were. FJ made the stress-filled run up to our wedding a lot easier by "just getting on with it" and ensuring everything was alright on the night.
