Bethebestman.co.uk is me, Jonnie Dowding. I am a 33 year old guy that many would say hasn't quite grown up yet; this has it's advantages though as I have had many fantastic party weekend all over Europe - enjoying myself and meeting new people. I am someone that keeps my friends very close, resulting in being part of dozens of stag do's and proudly being a best man (5 times), Usher (3 times) and part of the Grooms party on many occasions. I have also given advice to friends and family in the role, written speeches for them and helped arrange stag party's (16 when I last counted) to Warsaw, Madrid, Budapest, Prague, Brighton and Newquay to name a few and am very excited to be able to help you guys now.
Trying not to make this sound too much like a tinder bio, I am a very proud Uncle, Godfather, Son, Brother and friend. I have been a part of some incredible memories that I will cherish forever and have some of the best pals a guy could ask for. There really are few better feeling's than standing beside your mate on the biggest day of his life and doing him and him and his partner for life proud.
I am also a massive music fan with very eclectic taste. After my first live gig in 2004 - Faithless at Brixton Academy no less! - I have gone on to see hundreds of artists perform at festivals and gigs all over the country. With some of the most memorable being The Prodigy @ Alexandra Palace (RIP Keith - thank you for the memories!), Bloc Party @ Manchester Albert Hall, Jay Z @ The Radio 1 Big Weekend in Hackney and The Foo Fighters and Biffy Clyro @ The Milton Keynes Bowl. I could go on and on!!
Perhaps this is better placed on Tinder!? But anyway, hopefully this gives you an idea of who I am and what inspired me to create bethebestman.co.uk
