This additional service is available should you require background music as your guests
arrive for your reception and during the wedding breakfast. Microphones can be
provided (if required) to enable those all important speeches to be properly heard.
The music played will be entirely suitable for your occasion (eg: Easy Listening, Classic
Soul, Swing / Jazz) thereby enhancing the ambiance of your occasion whilst remaining
fully conducive to conversation.
Most venues, and many discos, will only provide a single hand-held microphone which
will need to be passed around and can be tricky to use whilst holding a written speech,
and attempting to distribute gifts and flowers as is traditional.
I solve this problem by providing 3 separate mics on boom stands for the primary
speakers enabling complete freedom of movement.
Please note that these stands cannot be used with a round or oval table and in these
circumstances a hand-held mic will be provided.
My music & pa service prior to your evening disco is available for just £100 (up to 4hrs).
Music for the actual Marriage Ceremony is available for an additional £50.

"..feet were tapping

was buzzing. Your
'nothing is too much
was very refreshing."
The Evening Party
Traditionally the evening would begin with the couple's "1st dance", often immediately
after the "cutting of the cake" (which I am happy to announce for you).
I would usually gather guests around the dance floor and invite you both onto the floor to
rapturous applause! Then, at roughly halfway through the 1st dance, I would invite
everyone to join you on the floor (if you would like me to do this).
Wedding DJs require very special skills. The music would usually start very mainstream to
appeal to the widest range of people present, there is then the opportunity to
accommodate for different requests and specialist groups while carefully managing the
dynamics of the dance floor. Then, at the end of the evening, the music is adapted to
whoever is dancing ... And this could be any style from Dance anthems to Smooth Soul or
Rock classics depending on the mood of the audience.
I am happy to organise a 'Leaving Arch' if the bride and groom are leaving early,
otherwise I always try and go for a big finish with everyone on the floor, including the B&G,
to end the night on a fantastic high!
