What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm extremely proud to have built my business up on my own and provide a range of services to the highest standard I can, which has culminated in me winning The Wedding industry Awards 2019 Best DJ for Yorkshire & The North East.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Meet your suppliers and book early. I'd always recommend booking the suppliers you want as early as possible, it's surprising how far in advance suppliers get booked for weddings, 2-3 years is not uncommon at all.
I'd also recommend meeting your short-listed suppliers face to face. This enables you to see if the supplier is a good fit for you personally and let's you meet the actual person who will have an impact on your day, they won't just be a faceless name on an email.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I've seen some amazing wedding cakes with hidden reveals on the rear. My favourite has to be a wedding cake which had marvel comic strips and characters running around the bottom of each tier, which matched perfectly the groom's customised belt, and the soles of the bride's shoes.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once I've received an enquiry form a couple, I'll provide a personalised quotation via email and offer to meet up for a chat to discuss things further at a place the couple choose (usually either their own home or the venue). At this meeting (if the couple want to take me up on the offer) I'm happy to discuss anything and show what I can supply and offer for the day and go through all the options available.
At this point the couple are left to decide if they would like to go ahead with booking myself. If they choose to book with myself, they will then receive all the relevant information and booking contract via email and the date will be reserved for 14 days.
The couple then click the booking contract link contained within the email, check they are happy with everything and digitally sign online before paying the deposit to secure the booking.
What makes a romantic first dance?
Get everyone involved. As part of my DJ/Disco service you receive your own personal planner account within my website which allows you to tailor the entertainment around what YOU want (and just as importantly.... what you DON'T want)
Within this planner, you can let your guests login separately too so they can make some music request, that way you can ensure everyone is catered to. Although, as it's YOUR day, you can always delete any unwanted guest requests from within your account.
What is your number one floor-filler?
Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody
