Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Mike Wild
My name is Mike WIld and I have been a DJ since 1980 while still at school. Over several years I learnt to 'read the dance floor' which is an important factor in choosing a DJ. Our style and equipment is second to none, and I invite you to view our website.

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 :)

What is your most memorable wedding?

A wedding I did at the Lansdown Club, Mayfair, London back in 2003. I arrive very early, and after setting-up, I joined some wedding guests and walked to Green Park, we sat and watch Terry Wogan introduce various famous acts. Then at night I played tunes from those acts. Fabulous wedding with amazing guests.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I chatter at the start, then as the dance floor fills, I move into DJ mix sets and 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 play-lists. The play-lists provide the music core and direction then I carefully sort those tunes into genres, beats per minute, key and then constantly react and juggle the songs by the dance-floor mood.

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

For a disco, ensure your DJ has your first dance tune prior to your day. Don't rely on your iPhone because of streaming outages and the phone display will lock - Thus the DJ will not know when the song is going to end or other control.

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

Ken Dodd, Fearne Cotton, Ferreo Roche wedding cake

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Take booking - send contract by email - send client portal login - respond to complete planner forms - organise meeting 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, and wedding video highlights are playing as a backdrop.

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?


What is the soundtrack to your life?

I'll let you know when i retire.
