We met many DJ's on our search for the right person to be a major part of our day and I knew instantly that we had found the right man. We were proved correct. What we loved is that although he was a major part of the day it was always myself and my wife that had the focus on them rather than some where the egos are bigger than the wedding. What we also loved was that nothing was to much trouble and we threw a few challenges at him (including music clips in my speech).

Iain wasn't just a wedding DJ he was our master of ceremony, time keeper, liaison for the suppliers on the day and so caring I didn't need to worry about anything on my day thanks to Iain! I had a beautiful starlit dance floor supplied by Iain and a constantly full dance floor during the evening!

Iain was absolutely amazing before and on our wedding day. He is truly innovative, with such amazing ideas throughout the day, which made the day even more special. Not only did Iain present himself excellently, but he made myself, my wife, our guests, and other suppliers really feel at home. I'd certainly recommend Iain again, and I'd like to thank him personally by helping him potentially win this award. He certainly deserves to.

Iain delivered exactly as promised...
Iain delivered exactly as promised and to our requirements. He was professional, friendly, organised and gave us confidence that he would deliver what was required for the our special day. Unlike many DJs, he played what we wanted to hear on our day, and so pleasing to have a busy dance floor all evening. 12 hour job for Iain, all to our exact requirements. Friendly, professional, smart and so approachable. Great amount of such positive feedback received from our friends and family. Best DJ.

Iain was the best thing we could have booked for out wedding. We booked him for the whole day and couldnt have asked for better, my wife and I are very unorganised people and he pretty much made the whole day flow perfectly. The music was everything we asked for and his timing was always perfect. Iain also arranged for table entertainment before our wedding breakfast including a quiz and sweep stake which our guests absolutely loved. If I could do it all again, I would still choose him.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, stylish, informal, creative, rustic

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm proud of the ideas I bring to my couples to make their day even more special.

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

If you want to ensure your wedding reception goes with a swing, find a venue which allows you to have the dance floor, bar and food all in the same space. Create a focal point for your evening celebrations and you can't go wrong. Oh and don't book a Photo Booth! They're the kiss of death for the dance floor. Speak to me about The Tomfoolery Box instead.

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

I love it when couples have some fun with their table decor to make it really personal. I'm a sucker for those couples who've named their tables after favourite musicians, songs or places they've been. Get creative to transform your venue. Choose album artwork from your favourite bands to decorate your tables and then get your DJ to play music from these artists throughout the meal.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I'm glad you asked! It all starts with a meeting, either face-to-face over a cuppa at my office in Whitstable or perhaps a Skype video chat or conference call. As with all your suppliers, it's important to find a DJ that's a good fit for you and your wedding day. So I'd always advise you meet up with your prospective wedding suppliers. I'm sure you've got lots of questions you want to ask and I've got plenty of my own to ask you; What's important to you about your wedding day? Will we find you on the dance floor or propping up the bar? How do you feel about being in the spotlight? Do you have any wedding themes or colour schemes? Tell me about weddings you've been too before, what did you love and hate? Tell me about what music you and your guests love to dance to? What music do you hate? All these and more help me build a picture of your wedding day vision and suggest ideas to complement it. All my couples get a wedding entertainment handbook, packed with ideas, music lists and inspiration to make your wedding day personal. This is for you to fill out with all the things you like and don't like for your day.We can also talk about some other options to enhance your day. Once I know exactly what you'd like me to do for you on your wedding day I'll put together a bespoke package price just for you. All bookings are confirmed in writing with a booking agreement and then I typically meet up with my couples again in the lead up to to their day to plan out all the little details. As a full-time DJ I'm always available on email or phone to discuss any concerns you might have up until the day of the wedding.

What makes a romantic first dance?

Not all my couples necessarily want their first dance to be 'romantic'. You're first dance should be an expression of you as a couple. Maybe choosing a song that's more fun and light hearted might be more your kind of thing. Just makes sure you choose a song that means something to you both. When I meet with couples we discuss ideas to stage the perfect first dance. Frequently the bride will choose to have a Father & Daughter dance. For many brides it can prove a romantic touch to dance with Dad first and then I invite him to give the bride away again to the groom before transitioning into their first dance. Dancing On Clouds is a service I offer to complement the First Dance, which involves the bride and groom taking to the dance floor immersed in a carpet of white fluffy clouds. This can provide a romantic touch to any first dance.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Jackson 5 - I Want You Back (Dmitri From Paris Mix) for extra va-va-voom!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

John Grant - GMF
