COVID-19 Update
If you've secured me to DJ your Wedding and your concerned about Covid-19 please don't panic. There will not be any price increases or admin fees if you need to move the date. If I'm unavailable for your next date then I will recommend another DJ that I believe will suit your requirements. If you would prefer to not use my recommendation (regardless of reason) you are ofcourse welcome to a refund of your deposit. I am still taking bookings for 2021 and beyond. #StaySafe #StayHome - I can't wait to hear from you. Scott 🎧

Full Description
I offer a range of high standard products and services to create a wow factor at each and every event I attend. Exclusive DJ Booths, unique Light Up Letters and machine polished LED Starlit Dancefloors are just a few of the event props I can provide; either individually or as part of a package. Although I am more than confident to look after your event, as my client - you are ofcourse entitled to have full input with regards to music being played/avoided, the setup I use and any special requirements you may have. I am very proud to come highly recommended by both my Wedding couples and the Corporate clients I've worked for including the RAF & Young Minds. I'm sure it's not the first time he's has his name up in lights but that doesn't make it any less of an honour to supply my Light Up Letters to the Global Superstar that is - Sir Tom Jones, an event I'll never forget.

A thoughtful and trusted DJ!
Scott was booked for my Wedding this year and I was so pleased with this choice. Unfortunately the big day has been postponed twice and sadly this time around, Scott will be unavailable on the day- I was gutted, but during this stressful time, Scott has been so lovey. He recommended another trusted DJ to take the job in his place and said I was entitled to a full refund for the deposit, which he didn’t have to do. If anyone is having a difficult time with moving dates for events right now, please know that Scott is extremely helpful and considerate. Get in contact with DJ Scott Dewing and you won’t be disappointed! 🙂

Booked Scott after seeing him in action
Booked Scott after seeing him in action at a mates wedding last year. Unfortunately our wedding is not proceeding as planned due to COVID19 but Scott has been brilliant the whole way through. Easy to contact, always kept us up to speed with things via Whatsap and has even been kind enough to refund our deposit fully until we are able to lock in a future date! 10/10 Would definitely recommend and will be booking again as and when weddings get back to some degree of normality👍

We highly recommend Scott! The nicest guy ever and his service was 100%! Scott supplied the dancefloor and letters for our Wedding and these were amazing. Not only that, he was so kind and thoughtful! If you need someone, please, please, use Scott, you will be so grateful you did!!! A massive thank you Scott! We are eternally grateful!!

...and the music he chose was perfect!
Scott was brilliant at our Wedding. He was really patient with all of our requests! Our guests loved him and the music he chose was perfect. He went above and beyond to make sure our night was amazing. I would recommend him to anyone looking for Wedding entertainment.

....crowd happy and dancefloor full.
Scott DJ'd my wedding in October this year (2019). We had a very good chat on the phone a few months before, exchanged our playlist and had a discussion on how the day would work and what we were looking for, which was great. He turned up on time, the setup looked great and he was very smartly dressed. Always good to get the simple stuff right! The important bit, the music, was great all night! Scott really mixed it up, staying within what we wanted, but always kept the crowd happy and the dancefloor full. We had a whole bunch of feedback from guests saying how good he was, so I can't say thank you enough for really making our day that extra bit special.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

The most memorable Wedding that I've ever had the pleasure of DJing was where the bride had spent the majority of her life trying to get in touch with her Dad. Another family member managed to find him before the Wedding Day and arranged for him to be waiting at the church to walk her down the isle - it's safe to say it was quite an emotional day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Adaptable, Reliable, Witty, Courteous & Considerate

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I will strive to ensure every Bride and Groom will have the day they've always dreamed of. No Wedding should be the same. You are two individuals that deserve a bespoke playlist that reflects you and your guests.

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

Don't write a list of EVERTHING you think a Wedding should have, write a list of everything YOU want on your special day then prioritise those into an order of how important they are to you. As an example, if a cake isn't a real big deal to you - don't spend £700 on it - have something different and save the money. If your not bothered about having a great DJ on the night then create a Spotify playlist and play it as background music! If you want to see everyone up on the dancefloor creating a night to remember - find a DJ that specialises in Weddings. This is your day - you won't get another one (hopefully) - make the day go YOUR way.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A tree was planted when the Bride was born in at the family home. Just a few weeks before the Wedding, the tree was blown over by a storm we had. The father of the groom had the tree cut to become the centre pieces of the tables. I thought that was a real nice touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I would ensure the date is free first, get a brief understanding of what they are looking to achieve on their special day, if they are happy to go ahead, I would arrange to meet with them to discuss further details, if they are happy to go ahead after meeting me, a deposit would need to be paid to secure the date. I would then call again two weeks before the wedding to run through the day for peace of mind.

What makes a romantic first dance?

I love it when a couples first dance has a story behind it, whether it was played when they went out on a first date, the lyrics match the story they've had - just anything that has a personal touch.

What is your number one floor-filler?

It really depends on the style of the music from the night that's been discussed with the Bride & Groom before the Wedding. This could be Robin S - Show Me Love, Walk The Moon - Shut Up And Dance but I do believe that every genre of music has it's own floor fillers.

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

I'm a huge fan of Old Skool RnB personally so maybe Dru-Hill, its only really Old Skool RnB events that I get to play that kind of playlist but my focus is always to play what I believe will create the best atmosphere for the couple.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Shut Up & Dance - Walk The Moon! A huge hit for the Wedding Industry. I like to let the music do the talking and make sure you're guests have a night they'll never forget. That said, if you'd like a personality DJ for your special day I can certainly assist!
