We would like to thankyou so much for being the DJ and Master of Ceremonies at our Wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience from yourself and you made our day extremely special. We really enjoyed every second of it. From the very beginning you were full of great ideas and you pulled them all off, we especially enjoyed the introductions, they were hilarious, and the love story was a brilliant idea. Everyone at the wedding is saying “one of the best they have ever been too”. We will be recommending you to everyone we know as you are simply brilliant at what you do! Thanks again
Voted Best Wedding DJ in England 2017 at the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards.
It was an honour to be announced as the Best Wedding DJ for England 2017 at the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards at The Cafe De Paris in London, on Jan 12th 2017. I’m overwhelmed by the scores and comments from all of my couples who voted for me. It really means a lot and much love sent to every one of you xx. I have so many great memories from your days.
You can read my award score sheet here.
But this isn’t my first award, I’ve been Hampshire regional finalist since 2015 and regional winner in 2017, before going on to become the national winner.

This is the service that sets me apart from almost any other DJ you will have ever seen and the one I’m most proud of. In fact, I’m one of a just a handful of DJs in the UK who have travelled the world and trained extensively with the very best DJs the world has to offer to bring you this service.
By building a rapport with your guests and bringing both of your families together, I guarantee that not only will everyone have the time of their lives, but the dance floor will be ready to explode at the start of your evening reception. With my fresh and modern style, and by implementing a whole host of innovative ideas, I’ll totally transform your wedding day and give it the wow factor.
A sample of my full day service:
Myself as your modern Master Of Ceremonies / Host. (If you’re looking for a red-jacketed toastmaster, I’m the wrong man!)
Ceremony sound production. Together we can create a unique ceremony soundtrack that will not only evoke emotion in your guests but will completely personalise this most intimate and emotional part of your wedding day. All of the music will be edited for maximum effect and played through a high-quality Bose sound system.
Drinks reception customised playlist.
Introduction of your top table into the wedding breakfast in a fun and stylish manner. The technique I use to create this special moment will transform what is often a tedious moment into one of the most memorable parts of your wedding day.
Customised wedding breakfast soundtrack. Perhaps you have a theme in mind? Disney, Ibiza Chill-out, Acoustic Lounge, Rat Pack? It’s your wedding – it’s your choice!
Introduction of your speeches in a warm and friendly manner. I’ll also coach your speakers on correct usage of the wireless microphone provided, to put them at ease.
Lots of options to ensure all of your guests feel engaged and connected to the day.
Introduction to your cake cutting ceremony, ensuring all of your guests are involved.
The delivery of your scripted and unique Love Story as the build-up to your first dance.
Your DJ for the evening. Your evening reception is the time to really let go and party and a great Wedding DJ will really make a difference to this part of your day. Together we can create a unique playlist that will guarantee your dance floor is full from beginning to end.
There are lots of other things I can include to make your wedding day fun and engaging, and I’m happy to share all of these with you in a relaxed meeting to find out what fits your style and vision.

Your evening reception is the time for letting your hair down and celebrating your wedding day in style. It’s time to Party!
This is the core focus of what I do as a DJ, and as your reception will be one of the final memories that your guests will leave with, getting it right is essential.
The good news is that through my years of experience as a DJ, both overseas and in the UK, along with my extensive music collection, knowledge and passion for music, I know how to create a party that is memorable for all of the right reasons.
Being a Wedding DJ is a craft, especially when there are so many different age groups, with different musical tastes to cater for. The best parties keep everyone happy by playing a cross-section of genres and party classics, all mixed professionally at the right volume with no annoying chatter between songs.
So, when you book me, not only can you tell me all about your must-play songs, but I’ll give you access to my comprehensive online music selector, enabling you to build your playlist together with your family and friends. With a combination of your choices and my knowledge and ideas, together we’ll be able to create an evening that will have your dance floor full from beginning to end.
But it’s not just about the music…there are lots of other things I can provide that will ensure your evening is special, and I’ll be there for you anytime to discuss new ideas and to help in any way that I can.

Create a special, customised soundtrack for your wedding day!
Music is one of the most important aspects of any wedding, and, as a DJ who is committed to making things perfect, I always take the time to meet, prior to the wedding, with all of my brides and grooms.
Discovering exactly what you like and what you don’t, helps me to create a special, customised soundtrack for your wedding day.
The music at the evening reception is extremely important and getting it right, keeping everyone happy and staying to the very end is achieved in the planning stage. That’s why I give you access to my online music selector where you can choose as many songs as you like. Maybe there’s a special song that you all sang at University or a great track that’s a big favourite from a family holiday? These are the special songs I love to find out about by talking to you. As well as choosing the songs you really want to be played, you can also choose the ones you don’t!
On the evening itself I love to encourage requests, so I can also provide your guests with my top 200 tracks if you’d like me to. All of this can be discussed at our pre-wedding meeting. I’m happy to listen to all of your wishes and work with you to make your wedding exceptional, but if you’re stuck for ideas I’m always here for help and advice.
Remember, it is your day and the overall flavour of your music should be a reflection of yourselves.
Your Love Story
The Love Story is Your Own Personalised Romantic Comedy
A series of events and very special memories have culminated in bringing you together to declare your love for each other on your wedding day – how you met, when you knew your partner was “the one”, your engagement and the proposal. This is your Love Story, and no wedding should be complete without one. Everyone’s story is different, each one is precious, and I believe that by sharing elements of your story with your family and friends (and each other), a truly memorable and magical moment is created. It’s your uniquely presented romantic comedy.
I am one of just a handful of DJs in the UK who has trained extensively to develop the skills to present the Love Story on behalf of couples on their wedding day. Often delivered just before the first dance (but sometimes at the wedding breakfast) this has been one of the highlights for my couples. It’s the moment everyone will remember, everyone will talk about, and one of the things that will make your wedding day unique.
Telling a Love Story emotionally connects everyone at a wedding, and I’d be delighted and honoured to share your Love Story with your family and friends on your special day.
