So, the adventure begins….
Hello & Congratulations
Over the last few years – Weddings have become incredibly exciting to organise! Why? Because the sky’s the limit! Every Wedding I attend – I see Brides & Grooms stepping out of their comfort zone to create a day like no other.
Let’s talk about how we can make your day the most magical experience for both yourselves and your guests. You didn’t think a Wedding DJ just played music did you?
I have a variety of packages, options and ideas to send your creative mind racing so come on – let’s talk Weddings!
Wedding DJ Reviews
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 completley 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 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 setup 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 ofcourse – you have specified otherwise.

Wedding DJ Setup
A Wedding is an incredibly personal day and most importantly – personal to YOU! The finest of details are looked into on such a day and I pride myself as a highly recommended Wedding DJ on being able to customise what I do and how I present myself, ensuring the standard remains high. I have several DJ Booths ensuring I can suit a variety of venues with the look and style you’re after. There is no added fees on which booth you select.
Click on the tabs below to see which booths are available.
The TV DJ Booth is exclusive and was custom built for me. It features a high quality TV that displays the music videos to the songs i’m playing at the time. This creates an incredible atmosphere on the dancefloor especially when you find your guests working their hardest to replicate the Beyonce – ‘Single Ladies’ dance routine.
This booth is very popular as it can really bring themes to life such as Disney, Harry Potter and Marvel Weddings to name a few. I can also play video messages from family or friends that can’t be with you on the night but would love to still play a part on your special day.
The most recent way in which i’ve been using the TV display is on the first dance – for those Bride & Grooms that aren’t too keen on having the spotlight for 3-4 minutes – I can create a ‘story of your relationship’ including when and where you met, any milestones you’d like to show, new additions to the family etc which will play along side your first dance.
If you have an idea in mind and would like to see if this is viable then get in touch – I love to hear new ideas to expand it’s capability.
Over the last couple of years there has been a huge demand for Rustic Weddings including Light Up Love Letters, Barn Style Venues and real quirky rustic decor. This gave me the inspiration to create my rustic booth to ensure I fit in with your theme and stying.
The latest Wedding trend is Flower Walls and Neon Signs – a combination that really looks quite classy and very modern. The flower wall I use is green with white flowers as I believe this fits in beautifully with most venues and themes. The Neon Sign I use is ‘Ain’t Nobody Loves You Better’ a classic soul track that works perfectly in a Wedding environment.
The beauty with this booth is it’s something you can customise even further should you wish to. I have a great relationship with a company that produces these signs and I’m able to offer you a better rate if you would prefer to have a custom neon sign with Mr & Mrs Smith for example. Your custom sign would of course be yours to keep to display at home after your Wedding.
If you’d like to keep things simple – that’s absolutley fine. In some cases less is more and that’s up to you to decide. I also offer both plain black & white DJ Booths if required.
I can’t call it a DJ Booth as it’s quite simply a fold out table. It really is my worst nightmare as it’s got cables on show! However, it does have an oddly satisfying summer look to it. This setup is usually an add-on for Weddings that are lucky enough to have incredible weather and an outdoor area where your guests gather for refreshing pimms & cocktails as they arrive. A professional DJ booth can sometimes look out of place outside a venue where this just seems to look right.

Wedding DJ Prices
I completely understand that it’s incredibly difficult to find a suitable DJ for your Wedding and the variation in price can go from one extreme to the other. I’d like to give you an understanding on what’s included when booking myself as your DJ.
I’m a professional Wedding DJ so, i’ll be DJing in no less than a 2-piece suit. I have invested highly in state of the art equipment from line array sound systems (compact speakers rather than the big bulky speakers you may be used to) along with a DMX light show. This means I have full control of the lights. I can create a dancefloor spotlight, highlight the cake for cutting and generally adjust the colour, speed, motion and brightness of the lights (rather than lots of coloured dots flying round the room like a childrens birthday).
I use the latest equipment which is maintained to the highest standard. The law states that any electrical item that’s less than one year old does not need to have a PAT Certificate. Everything I use is tested and has a certificate to ensure it’s safe at every event regardless of age. I have invested highly in the vehicle I use to ensure it’s reliable for every event. If the worst was to happen and my vehicle was to break down on route – I am covered with Mercedes to bring me a replacement vehicle so I can continue with my journey.
If your comparing me on price to ‘Daves Mega Roadshow’ who works through the week, packs his equipment into his car and DJs for a bit of extra income at the weekends then I’m probably not the right DJ for you but, if you’re comparing me on price to another Wedding DJ Professional then you’ll see I offer good value with incredibly high standards included.
Wireless Microphone + Speaker Add-On - £75.00
If you’d like to have your speeches heard loud and clear but have other plans for music/entertainment throughout the day – this is the perfect add-on for you.
Evening Wedding DJ Packages
The Evening DJ Wedding Packages I’ve created below are perfect if you’ve got a Toastmaster or MC already booked to host the day. They’ll be making any announcements you’d like made throughout the day and will ensure the day runs smoothly. Every package as standard comes with an early setup option, dancefloor protection (if required by the venue), your choice of DJ booth, a high quality sound system and a DMX Light Show. Although you can book any one of the packages below they are designed to give you an idea on price. You are more that welcome to book a platinum package but reduce the size of the dancefloor for example to which i’ll quote accordingly.
All Day Wedding DJ Packages
The ultimate Wedding experience comes as standard as part of the All Day Wedding DJ Packages. Yes, venues will offer to play background music through Wedding Breakfast but, in my time as a Wedding DJ I have walked into some venues with music skipping from the same CD being played at every Wedding. Bar staff are sometimes asked to rotate their phones with their own music which, is great if your taste in music is similar but – that’s not always the case.
Every All Day Wedding Package will include: setup before your guests arrive, suitable music through drinks reception right up to when the party starts, a high quality wireless microphone to ensure speeches are heard loud and clear and any announcements that you would like made throughout the day. Every package as standard comes with an early setup option, dancefloor protection (if required by the venue), your choice of DJ booth, a high quality sound system and a DMX Light Show. Although you can book any one of the packages below they are designed to give you an idea on price. You are more that welcome to book a gold package but exchange the Mr & Mrs Light Up Letters to your surname for example, which I’ll then quote accordingly.
