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!

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.
