Our goal was to get people out on the dance floor, and Mike did just that!
Mike exceeded all of our expectations not only during the planning of our wedding reception, but the day of the wedding. Our goal was to get people out on the dance floor, and Mike did just that! He really understood our tastes in music and made it feel like OUR wedding, with OUR music. I would recommend Motiv-8 to anyone and everyone, and am so grateful we had him!

Mike was very good at mixing the songs into each
Fantastic evening of our wedding - got everyone dancing and the props were very popular. Mike was very good at mixing the songs into each other and playing a range of music for all guests. Thanks for the unexpected video after too! Pre-choosing songs/requests through their system was really easy, thank you :)

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

A wedding I did at the Lansdown Club, Mayfair, London back in 2003. I arrived very early, and after setting-up I and a few wedding guests took a walk to Green Park, we all sat and watched Terry Wogan introduce various famous acts on the Radio 2 stage. Then at night I played tunes from those acts. Fabulous wedding with amazing guests.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I chat and encourage a little at the start. As the dance floor fills, I mix the music and play requests. After all nobody wants DJ chatter when the dance floor is bouncing.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love playing requests from client playlists. Playlists provide the musical direction which I carefully into genres, beats per minute, and energy. As I play the set, I constantly juggle the songs by the dancefloor reaction.

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

Involving your guests in the music planning. Your guests out on the dancefloor is what will create the atmosphere, and they will only dance to the songs they know and love.

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

Ferreo Rocher wedding cake made by a 82 year old gran.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Take booking - send agreementt and client login by email - organise Skype/Zoom if needed - ensure all prior music requests are available and loaded.

What makes a romantic first dance?

When the couple are circled by their family and friends.

What is your number one floor-filler?

I play from request lists, and every celebration is different, what fills the floor at one wedding, won't fill the floor at the next.

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

N/A

What is the soundtrack to your life?

I'll let you know when i retire.
