I have been a professional wedding DJ since 2000. Weddings are occasions I take particular pride in and enjoy, whether it be a large, formal wedding, a more intimate, relaxed occasion, or a little less conventional (as with the three-day burlesque-themed wedding festival I DJ’d at just outside Peterborough). Whatever style you choose, I ensure that everything runs smoothly and you have a relaxed, stress-free time.
Once booked, I am always available, should you want to talk about and plan your reception. I always tailor the reception and the music to your specific needs and wishes.
On the day, I will arrive at the venue to set up at least an hour in advance and will start at the agreed time. I will be smartly and appropriately dressed.
I can also arrive earlier and, if you wish, provide background music for when your guests arrive and during the wedding breakfast – creating the right mood with music that is, for instance, modern and laid-back, classical, jazz-based, ambient, or a compilation of some of your favourite songs.
If required, I can act as MC for the evening, hosting the formalities, making announcements, coordinating with the photographer, caterers and other service providers, and generally making sure everything runs according to plan – while remaining open to any last-minute changes.
If there are a number of children among your guests, I can make a point of entertaining them during the earlier part of the party.
When it is time for the first dance – if you are having one – I will make sure your guests and the photographer are in position around the dance floor, and then announce the bride and groom. If you would like your guests to join you towards the end of the first dance, or for the second song, I can invite them to join you on the dance floor.
Throughout the evening I will be approachable and polite, making sure to cater for and involve everybody, without being intrusive, taking requests and making dedications as required.
