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 will be entirely suitable for your occasion (eg: Chillout, Smooth Soul, Swing
and Acoustic vibes) and played at a non-invasive volume 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.
I solve this problem by providing separate wireless mics mounted on boom stands (if
practical to do so) for the primary speakers enabling complete freedom of movement.
Up to 4 mics are available.
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
and the dance floor
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 whilst carefully managing the ambiance of the evening and 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 Funky 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!
