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?

During a wedding at the Lansdown Club, Mayfair, London back in 2003. I arrived very early, and after setting-up myself 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 including Simply Red, and Status Quo. Later that evening I played tunes from those acts. Fabulous wedding with amazing guests.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I chat and encourage at the start of the evening. As the dance floor fills, i witch off the microphone and mix the music and play requests.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I love playing requests from client playlists. Playlists provide the musical direction which I carefully organise into genres, and energy. As I play the set, I constantly juggle those songs by the dance floor reaction.

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

Involving your guests in the music planning. Your guests out on the dance floor 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 granma.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Take their booking, the follow up by sending their agreement and client login. If required by the client, we later organise a Zoom conversation.

What makes a romantic first dance?

When the couple are circled by their family and friends.

What is your number one floor-filler?

There isn't one. each celebration is different, what fills the floor at one wedding, won't fill the floor at the following. Which is why playlists are so vital.

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

not applicable.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

I'll let you know when i retire.
