Full Description
  • I'm Gavin, Isle of Wight wedding DJ and host – the guy who'll wrap your wedding in a great big bow. No longer do you have to put up with a "cheesy mobile disco" for your wedding. Instead, you can book with confidence, as I've performed at some of the best venues in the south of England including Pennyhill Park, and take control of your entertainment with my online planner including selecting "Do Not Play" songs (as well as choosing your favourite "Must Play" tracks). Far from being an after-dinner after-thought, kindling for a knees up; music turns an average wedding into a magnificent celebration. • With raucous good time dinner noise (nothing kills a buzz like a wedding breakfast that's all dressed up but lacking in atmosphere). • Loud, whistling applause as you stroll in the room, with rings on fingers, for the very first time. • And a night that doesn't fizzle – but ends with an all-singing, all clutching hands cacophony...... your whole flock surrounding you with laughter and love (and perhaps the odd tear). When it comes to music at your wedding, the white hot party is just the start. So if you want a day (and night) that's soaked with atmosphere, gorgeous times and buckets of memories....get in touch and we'll arrange a chinwag.

FAQ
(7)
What is your most memorable wedding?
There have been so many - because I build such a connection with each couple before their wedding day, I can remember in detail every wedding I've performed at - so many magic moments seeing their guests on the dancefloor surrounding the bride and groom at the end of the night.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Non-cheesy, professional, reassuring, memorable, prepared.
What about your business are you most proud of?
To have built amazing relationships with my couples before each wedding. I'm not a DJ that takes a booking and then just turns up on the night. By getting to know the bride and groom, I can create a wedding party that is totally them!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Speak to your wedding professionals as early as possible in the planning process. We're experts and can help your vision become a reality, by making suggestions to make your day even better!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Before giving a quote, I meet with the couple (or at the very least speak on the phone) and make sure that I'm the right match for them. I'll only take on weddings that I'm 100% confident I can deliver a memorable evening of entertainment for. I then provide access to my online planner where the bride and groom plan their music, selecting "must play" and "do not play" tracks. Before the wedding, I meet again with the couple, and go through all the small details so that the couple know exactly how everything is going to happen on the night - from how they'll be introduced for the first dance, right through until the very last song. Throughout the process I'm available on email/phone for any small questions they couple have about their entertainment.
What makes a romantic first dance?
Being surrounded by their family and friends. My hosting skills ensures the guests are positioned around the dancefloor for the first dance, rather than still sat at their tables. This brings everyone much closer together for the first dance.
What is your number one floor-filler?
Mark Ronson - Uptown Funk is still doing the business! It's well known by all age groups.
