I LOVE Weddings!
It's your wedding day, the biggest and most special day of your life, and you want everything about it to be perfect - and so do I!
From having an initial meeting with you, to setting up early, helping with all the bits and pieces on the day, making sure the first dance goes without a hitch and ensuring a big, spectacular end to your day, my 30 years experience will really show.
I don't do gimmicks, I do discos.
I can offer uplighting and games to enhance your day, and I can provide an event management service to make use of my experience
A wedding DJ can, and should, add so much to your day - more than just turn up and play music. At Silverball Leisure I believe that your DJ should go the extra mile to host, compere, organise and help to manage your big day as well as being engaging and entertaining.
I believe it and I do it.
Why have a DJ for your wedding? The ability to read the crowd, react to what your guests are dancing to, a compere to make sure the important events go well, a light show, a huge range of music.
A good DJ can make such a difference to your special day.
A great DJ will help your day go smoothly
An excellent DJ will go beyond your expectations and make your day fabulous
Book an excellent DJ, book a DJ who cares

All weddings are memorable - I love what I do and seeing the happy couple at their happiest. There was this one time with Darth Vader though......
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Personal, Passionate, Professional
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love what I do, I love doing extra for my brides and grooms to help their day go well - and the feedback I get makes me proud - and seeing their faces on the day makes me incredibly proud!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Mentally walk through your day, touching every element and check how is it getting there, who is supplying it. This is a fabulous last check that everything is planned.... Example would be - orders of service. Are they written? Who is printing them? How are they getting to the venue? Who will give them out?
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once you have decided to book Silverball Leisure to provide the disco (and more) for your wedding reception we are always available to offer guidance or advice on any aspect of your special day. With 30 years experience as a DJ and Events Professional, we have a lot of answers - and if we are stumped we also have a Facebook chat group where you can ask other brides for advice! We want to ensure all of your wedding planning is as stress free as possible.
In the run up to your wedding day we will meet face to face – if not we’ll talk by phone/Skype or (at worst) very detailed emails! This meeting is to discuss your music choices, the timetable for your day and allows me to get to know you a bit better and understand how your special day will go. I will then make sure that all your special music is available to me, and listen to your first dance several times so I know when best to make announcements etc.
What makes a romantic first dance?
To keep a crowd entertained - engage with them, read them, and remember that the day and the party is about people enjoying themselves and celebrating the day - it is NOT about the DJ's ego!
What is your number one floor-filler?
Dancing Queen. Even people who "don't like cheese" just can't help themselves...
What is the soundtrack to your life?
No tricks, no gimmicks - but I do carry a sword! Its for cutting the cake if you want that extra bit of flair and fun!
