You Were Amazing!
Thank you so much for DJ'ing our wedding, you were amazing! Great communication that set everything out clearly, the quality of the kit was great, and the music was exactly what we were after! The music kept people dancing all night, with a wide variety so there was something for everyone and incorporated all of the songs that we asked for. DJ Karlton was professional, organised and easy to liaise with, and just a lovely guy to have at your wedding! We particularly loved his style and how he kept the atmosphere lively but wasn't constantly shouting over the mic, a number of guests commented on how good Karlton was. We highly recommend DJ Karlton, we had a brilliant night and so did our guests!

'The atmosphere with the music was brilliant'
I would highly recommend DJ Karlton to anyone who is having a wedding, I went to a good friends wedding this weekend where DJ Karlton has played, the atmosphere with the music was brilliant all different songs and the dance floor was full everybody was up on there feet. Everyone had an amazing time it was a shame it had to end.

Fabulous DJ
What a breath of fresh air to find someone who honours a booking, listens to your needs, offers a range of equipment to suit the size and type of audience, sets up in a timely, orderly unobtrusive fashion, plays the most amazing mix of music that keeps the dance floor chock full for the whole night. Thank-you Karlton so much. The DJ can make or break an event and you totally made ours!

Fantastic DJ service
We found Karlton for our wedding after another DJ let us down at short notice. He was extremely helpful and responsive, was happy to discuss playlists for the event, arrived at the agreed time on the day of the event and did a fantastic job. His equipment is top quality and many of our guests commented on how good the DJ was. Would highly recommend!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I've loved most of them, I've got the best job in the world, getting paid to make people have a good time.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Uplifting, funky, accomplished, assured, professional,

What about your business are you most proud of?

Allowing people to have the best time of their lives.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Having a small dance floor creates a better atmosphere, people feel more comfortable and the party feels so much more lively. If you have 150 guests and allow for one third to be on the dance floor as an example. This equates to 7 people by 7 people is 49 so visualise a square 7 by 7. You do not need as much space as you think.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After receiving a first contact I call up the couple for a chat, send follow up information by email and arrange another chat either via video call or voice call. Bookings are contracted and firmed up when the deposit is received.

What makes a romantic first dance?

It doesn't matter whether it's fast or slow it just needs to light up the couple emotionally.
