Is DJ Scott Dewing the right DJ for your big day?

Let’s be honest – it would be lovely for me to sell myself as ‘the DJ you need for your big day’ but, I’d like to try and remain a little more authentic and simply show you some of the kind words from my previous couples:

“He takes on board your requests, reads the room to perfection and knows how to create the ultimate party!” – Mr & Mrs Burton | Apton Hall | 3rd December 2023

“I had friends and family I’ve never seen dance before on the dance floor all night”  – Mr & Mrs Flynn | The Reid Rooms | 17th May 2022

“A few of our guests tried to leave for their lift (which was waiting for them in the carpark!) but kept running back to the dancefloor as Scott kept dropping banger after banger, and they couldn’t bring themselves to leave” – Mr & Mrs Howard | Villiers Barn | 27th August 2023

“He coordinated our ceremony music in a rural location, understood the importance behind some pivotal and emotional moments in our day, facilitated a confetti throw moment we will remember forever, and just completely understood what was required of him” – Bex & Nance | Captains Wood Barn | 29th July 2023

“I have no idea how he did it, but Scott paid close attention to our requests and crafted an incredible setlist that had everyone on their feet the entire night” – Mr & Mrs Bakewell | Talbooth | 29th May 2023

"When picking a DJ for our wedding we knew we wanted somebody that could keep a dancefloor full and put together an absolute banger of a playlist and Scott did not disappoint"

Mr & Mrs Burton | Apton Hall | 3rd December 2023

Any DJ can throw a great party...

but, can they do it consistently?…. enabling you to book with confidence!

One thing the majority of my reviews have in common, is that my couples are grateful that I not only created an incredible atmosphere but, took the time to capture it on camera! This allows my couples to look back on their big day from my point of view (whilst they/their guests are enjoying the moment). It also allows me to show you the atmospheres I create week in, week out!

If you’re in the early stages of planning your Wedding, there’s no better time to give me a follow on Instagram HERE @djscottdewing where you’ll be able to see the nights I DJ throughout the year!

In 2022, I DJ’d over 100 Weddings across Essex, Suffolk, Kent & London but don’t worry – you can still see the highlights on Instagram from what was a phenomenal year!

Experience before you commit!

This isn’t something you often see when looking for a Wedding DJ right?

Following an incredible year, I had so many requests from followers that have watched my Instagram stories to create an event for anyone to attend. So, Jonny on Sax & Dan on Bongos joined me for a night of nothing but great music and a phenomanal atmosphere.

My first event was held on Friday 31st March 2023 at the brand new Colchester Rugby Stadium in Essex (just off the A12).

My next event will be announced real soon, so – be sure to round up the bridal party and/or the groomsman to get a taste of what’s to come on your big day.

"He will make sure he honours your wishes for the vibe but also add his professional knowledge to make sure it’s the best party ever. Scott you’re amazing!"

Mr & Mrs Sullivan | The May Fair Hotel, London | 15th September 2023

My Wedding DJ Personality

There is a real stigma attached to how a typical Wedding DJ performs and what they are generally known for. Usually, it’s the way they use the microphone.

There are two views on how the ‘best Wedding DJ’ would use a microphone. The first is “it’s nice for a DJ to show their personality through the night to create a good atmosphere” the second is that “if you’re a good DJ then you’ll be able to get people dancing without talking over the tracks”.

Everyone has a personal preference and I fully respect that. I am confident as a DJ that I will be able to give you and your guests a night to remember without constantly using the microphone if that’s what you would prefer. However – I am more than happy to provide light-hearted banter to help relax everyone and get them ready for an incredible night. It’s completely up to you.

We can discuss this in further detail whenever you’re ready.

Wedding Music Playlist & Requests

I’ve been a DJ for over 15 years in a variety of environments that have given me a wealth of experience across many genres of music. I won’t arrive with a list of tracks that I know I’ll be playing on the night for the very simple reason that – I don’t know the audience until I arrive.

My belief is that the best Wedding DJs will look around the room whilst playing and see what works. This could be from a tapping thumb on the table to a nod of the head but, as the night progresses -it certainly guides me on what’s going to work well on the dancefloor later that evening.

I am open to all requests both ‘must play’ and ‘play if you can’ suggestions along with any tracks that you don’t want to be played (for any reason). We can discuss the atmosphere you’re looking to achieve and the playlist you’d like to hear throughout the evening. I will set up a folder for your Wedding Playlist and play the tracks you’ve outlined throughout the night when I believe from my experience will work best unless of course – you have specified otherwise.

PAT Certificate (Expiry 16/02/2024)

I’ve been lucky enough to play at a huge number of venues in my time in the industry however, there are still a few I haven’t. Please feel free to let me know which venue you’ve booked for instant peace of mind.

If I haven’t, please don’t panic. I’ll be in touch with the venue long before your event to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day.

To secure me to DJ your event I require a deposit of £250.

Yes ofcourse, it’s always nice to know where you stand before you make the commitment to book. Please see below my standard terms of business.

DJ Scott Dewing – Terms & Conditions

Yes absolutley! A booking will only be secured once I have received your deposit and a signed booking form with terms. This form can be viewed below.

DJ Scott Dewing – Wedding Booking Form

I like to offer everyone full peace of mind that I’ll be arriving on the day. I’m more than happy to wait until the day of your event for you to pay the balance. This can be paid when I arrive at the venue but MUST be paid before I setup the equipment.

If you would prefer to wait until the day to complete the payment then I would suggest a cash payment rather than transfer incase there are any signal issues at the venue.

This is your event so you’re in charge. I’m more than happy to take a playlist from you of tracks that must be played on the night and there is no limit to how many you can give me. Just be conscious that a typical event lasts 5 hours and on average a track lasts 3 minutes. Your looking at around 100 tracks for the night – the more you give me the shorter the play time will be for each track.

We will discuss in more detail the plans for the evening and as an example, i’ll ask: “if the playlist you’ve provided is not working with the audience you have, would you like me to continue with it or let me shake things up a little?”

There is no right or wrong answer – I’d just hate to get to the end of the night for you to say ” I wish you’d of taken over”

If I’ve taken a booking from you then I will 100% be your DJ unless ofcourse something drastic (out of my control) has happened.

I’d like to quickly point out that, in over 15 years of my career, I have always attended the bookings I’ve been secured for and have never let anyone down.

If I’m not available for your event then I’m more than happy to provide you with the contact details of another supplier that I believe is reputable and talented in the industry.

Weddings & Corporate events – I will never dress less than a guest. You will see me in a 2-piece suit with shirt, tie and polished shoes unless ofcourse you are hosting a black tie event where this will be exchanged for a dinner suit/tuxedo with bow tie.

Birthday parties and similar events are more smart/casual with branded polo shirt, trousers/jeans and shoes/black trainers. This ofcourse can be discussed regarding the plans you have for the evening.

There is a whole range of products and services I can offer and some people don’t like to commit to something without the guarantee the budget will be there in the future. I completely understand and you are more than welcome to decide at a later date.

I can’t guarantee the products or services will be available when you’d like to add them but fortunately I have two identical starlit dancefloors available for hire and a whole range of light up letters so i’m sure I’ll have you covered.

If not, I’ll point you in the right direction.

I didn’t have anything in place for the COVID-19 Pandemic although for me it’s fairly straight forward so this is what I have now put in place for the future (hopefully we won’t ever see anything like it again).

If you need to move the date of your event due to a pandemic then I am more than happy to transfer your date absolutley free of charge. If I am unavailable for the next date you have selected then you are more than welcome to a deposit refund.

I will work this around both yourself and the venue. There is no extra charge for an early setup and I’m happy to setup when is most convinient.

Once I have the equipment where I need to setup, it will take me around 25 – 30 mins.

The time that’s added to this will depend on how long it takes for me to get the equipment from the van to where it needs to be setup. This will be discussed with the venue before I arrive on the day but generally speaking, I like to leave an hour overall.

Whenever I talk about the ‘Sax Player’, i’m referring to Jonny – a very talented guy that I regularly work with.

If you’re interested in booking Jonny then I’ll message him to check if he’s available so you know from the start.

If you decide to go ahead, I’ll put you both in touch to discuss finer details and your booking would be with him.

No, I’ve worked with a whole variety of Sax Players and am more than happy to work with any other musicians you have in mind.

I’ve just worked with Jonny for a long period of time. I know he’s a great guy and we’ve got to the stage where we know how each other work to be able to enhance the DJ & Sax experience.

You’ll see that most sax players admit that they’ll ‘toot’ along to anything the DJ plays and I always have in mind that you have paid for a musician so my set at that time will be friendly to the style of musician you have at your event.

I would like the contact details of the musician before the event so I can contact them to discuss any special requests so you get the best value for money from them.

I live close to the Essex/Suffolk border but the majority of my bookings are Essex based – I also cover Kent & London. I’m happy to travel further, just pop us over a message and I’ll confirm if this is viable and if any travel costs would be added to the fee.

No, absolutley not. I’ll be there as a professional supplier and you have paid for my services. I certainly don’t expect you to take on the costs of my food and soft drinks. If I’m attending an all day wedding then I’ll come prepared with some light snacks to get me through the day.

Ahh a DJs worst nightmare ha ha! Yes, I have worked with sound limiters on a regular basis and they are usually in place due to the neighbours the venue has.

I fully understand and respect why they are there, just be aware that this takes things completely out of my control.

Let’s say for example your guests are chanting a song on the dancefloor (close to the sound limiter microphone). If the sound limit has been reached for over usually 5 seconds, this will cut the power that I’m using regardless of how loud my system is at the time.

There has only ever been a couple of events where the power has been cut (completely out of my control). They usually have what’s known as a traffic light system which shows the running volume so once i’ve adjusted to this i’ll be absolutley fine.

Sound Limiter image for DJ Scottt Dewings FAQs


Yes, no problem at all. A lot of venues spend huge amounts of money on incredible installed systems that create a more intense sound on the dancefloor leaving those that would prefer to chat with a little less volume.

I either need to plug into a sound plate on the wall which will link in to their system or they will have loose (usually XLR) cables that can plug straight into the back of my mixer.


If I haven’t played at the venue before then I would certainly give them a call to confirm I have everything for the night giving you full peace of mind.

FAQ answer to DJ Scott Dewing


Although this is never as simple as it sounds I am more than happy to try and cater for this but I need notice if this is something you would like.

The issues I tend to come up against are some people think that a DJ is a DJ and in the old skool world of DJing, that would be correct. They would bring a selection of vinyl that they’re going to play that night and away they go.

In the digital world of DJing, it’s not that simple. DJs use different mixers and software. If a DJ friend of yours arrives with a USB and says “here you go just plug this in” – i’ve got nowhere to plug it. All my ports are already used on the setup I require for the night.

Like I say, it’s possible and I can assist in making it happen – I just need notice.

Providing this is ok with the venue then ofcourse you can.

I recommend running this past the venue before the night. Please let me know if it’s a possibility. 

Ofcourse – I’ve worked with Saxophonists, Pianists & Bongo players to name a few.

If you let me know their details before hand, I will pop a call through to see in which way I can be assistance to ensure you get full value from the musician you’ve booked on the night.

I’m pleased to now be able to offer a fully battery powered wireless speaker which comes complete with wireless microphone.

You can bluetooth your music to it and use it for Wedding speeches to be heard loud and clear.

The portable speaker has an 8 hour battery life – more than enough power to get you through the day until I arrive.

This is just £75 to hire as an add-on fee.

The problem I have is that even I don’t know what i’m going to play when I arrive on the night. I’ll make a judgement when I arrive based on the current atmosphere, the average age and the overall atmosphere you would like to create (we would of already discussed this before the day).

Any DJ that is able to send you a list of what they know they’ll be playing on the night probably plays that same list on every night they DJ which just isn’t how I work.

Well, unless ofcourse you’ve given me a list of tracks that you would like played – that’s different.
