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.

So much more than just a DJ
I have only worked with Gavin a handful of times over the past few years, but I can honestly say I wish it was more! First and foremost Gavin is a fantastic DJ with top of the range equipment, and a wealth of professional and music knowledge. But more importantly, he is a fantastic host for the day. He will welcome the bride and groom, do any announcements as necessary and make sure the day runs smoothly! Group photos can sometimes be a challenge to arrange, especially at large weddings, but Gavin always jumps straight in making sure everyone is where they need to be at the right time, without impacting the feel of the day. He is a real asset to any bride and groom (and photographer!)

Gavin was fantastic, he provided exactly what we wanted on the evening of our wedding!! Communication running up to the big day was great too and so easy!! He made sure he knew what we wanted and how we wanted our evening to go. Gavin took a genuine interest in our wedding and made the service really personal. I would recommend him to anyone that's looking for a Wedding DJ.

I'd spent a long time looking for a wedding DJ and am so glad that we booked Gavin. He was professional and personable throughout the whole process and his online music / booking system was really great. Gavin met with us at the venue shortly before the wedding as well to run through everything, and even kindly threw in some great coloured up lighting for free because he thought it would look great at our venue. Music was exactly what we wanted and had people up dancing from start til finish!

Gavin was a wonderful addition to our wedding. He had communicated with us since we booked him, during the wedding and after the wedding. He ensured that all our guests were happy and enjoying the evenings entertainment. While searching for a DJ we wanted our guests to be involved and give them a chance to select what music they would like, out of all the DJs we spoke with, only Gavin provided us with this option, it made our wedding that extra bit special.

Gavin has a professional but very relaxed approach which really made us feel comfortable and confident in his skills. He ensured that every detail was covered (including those we had not even thought about!). Prior to the day his customer service was fantastic, with lots of online info and opportunities to personalise our day and a really useful pre wedding site meeting . On the day he kept the dance floor filled and everything was seamless ......which at the end of the day is what you want.

FAQ

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 No. 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.
