You'll read below all of the different pieces of the puzzle, and you've probably experienced that as an industry, us wedding suppliers like to talk.
A LOT isn't it...
For me, everything needs to be simple. I'll go into detail about your day as we navigate your post wedding meetings, but initially - you want to know what I offer, how much everything is, and how you can potentially save some money.
So why me?
I'll be in touch periodically throughout your booking journey. Not like a stalker, but just there in the background to answer any questions, offer support where necessary, and give advice and guidance to keep your minds at ease.
Each booking is individually contracted and signed off by everyone involved. There's no hidden costs, random or unexpected changes. Your booking only changes if you ask for it, and you'll receive a revised contract to confirm.
I'll handle your whole entertainment booking, all under a single contract and invoice. It means you'll only have one payment to worry about, and I'll take care of all of the logistics and administration required for your whole booking.
All of our packages come with no hidden fees, and fuel expenses up to 30 miles from our base in Stockport - any extra is just charged at 55p per mile.
So less talk, what's included?
I'm a little OCD when it comes to my setup. It HAS to look tidy and presentable - I'd hate to see bare wires and unnecessary cables in the background of first dance pictures, which is why I use a purpose built wooden 'tiki' style booth which even holds one of our stunning neon signs on the front.
Our RCF Evox Speakers which sit either side of the booth guarantee high quality audio playback with a pair of subs and tops. Around the speakers sit the lighting fixtures, usually consisting of a movers and washes to ensure your whole space can be lit. These are all DMX Controlled meaning they can sync up to the music and the perfect ambiance can be created, no matter the situation!
If a bigger setup is what you're after, the optional 3x2 truss system is the perfect backdrop. Your lighting fixtures will be suspended from above the DJ booth, allowing the beams to reach the far corners of your space.
I'll always carry a wireless microphone for announcements, and you're welcome to come and grab one to say (or sing) your piece.
I'm all about playing songs you want to hear - otherwise, whats the poin
Feel free to send me a love and hate list, and I'll use it to build your dream soundtrack. Transitioning between songs basically determines how good your DJ is - that and song choice. I pride myself on providing a seamless playback from start to finish with beat-match where possible.
I'm also happy to take song requests on the evening from you and your guests - we also have some great software which allows us to stream in software, giving us the ability to mix with tracks pulled from Spotify, Tidal and SoundCloud.
I'll work with you to create a series of meetings to step back and chat about your day. Typically, a pre-deposit meeting, a mid-point meeting, and a final preparations meeting a couple of weeks before your wedding day. These meetings mean I can get to know you both, and therefore create a more personal soundtrack to your day. You can also ask any questions along the way too!
I'll always aim to capture footage from your evening, and put it all into the form of a 4K Wedding Highlights Video. Filmed from behind the booth, it'll most probably be less serious than other media you'll get from your day, mostly consisting of ceremonial highlights as well as drunken dances and hilarious moments.
Some packages include a Photo Album as an extension of the 4K Highlights Video ensuring as much of your day is covered as possible.
The brand new post wedding hamper is remaining a secret - it contains some personalised gifts which are uniquely tailored, completely dependant on the musical selection throughout your reception.
There's also some other fantastic add-ons including live sax performances, and the brand new Retro Photobooth!
The Works - Live
Hooked Live Party Band
"Marriage: An endless sleepover with your favourite weirdo.."
The start of your day. Some will be thinking about the walk down the aisle, looking forward to seeing their family, friends and of course their spouse to be! Others will just be glad they got the right day and time!
My forté is the saxophone, which you're welcome to book throughout your ceremony. I'll prepare your chosen pieces for your entrance, as you sign the register, and as you process out as a married couple. I'll even send you demo recordings of your chosen songs before the day. I understand however that the sax isn't for everyone, so hit the button below to find more..
Drinks and Canapés:
Yes.. I may steal some canapés - who wouldn't..
Your drinks reception is normally a 'zen' moment for everyone. The stress of the ceremony is over, and you know you've got a nice gap before your speeches.
It's time to grab a drink, and greet your friends and family as newly-weds - avoiding your photographer who will undoubtedly pull you away for some portraits.
A musical performance during this time can be a great ice-breaker. Whether that's some background music, a vocalist doing their thing, or our string quartet pretending they're in Bridgerton, it's a stunning opportunity to entertain your guests and keep your entertainment varied and fun!
Finally, a chance to sit down.
Creating the perfect ambiance over this section of your day is huge. You want to keep your guests engaged, and most importantly, keep them awake so they're pumped ahead of the party!
Relieve the stress, and let me handle the playlist pulling ideas from the songs you've already requested for the evening.
If it's a classy affair you're going for, wordless instrumental covers always work well to set the ambiance. It keeps your guests from getting too hyperactive, and maintains a level of maturity to compliment an intimate wedding breakfast.
Alternatively, I could progressively develop the music throughout the meal, getting all of your guests involved with upbeat background music, live sax performances or even a singer/host.
I'll also keep our system ready for speeches and toasts, ensuring each speaker can be heard clearly via our wireless microphones.

Deeply Desired Co.
Come see me!
Although lockdown proved it was possible to 'work from home', I decided it wasn't for me! I wanted a space to mix, edit, record, relax and meet with customers without relying on Zoom - a space to separate work and life!
The door is open, the prosecco is in the fridge and the cushions have been plumped ready for you to come and discuss your big day!
What's the best way to check availability?
That's simple: just get in touch! I refuse to take any money, or process a booking before I've had the opportunity to introduce myself and my services personally, whether that be via phone, email or even an in-person meeting. I also run our sister company, The Groove which allows you to book other DJ's and entertainers through our system.
Do you take a deposit?
Yes. For normal package bookings, a simple £50 deposit is taken, as well as a signature on our contract to let us know that you're committed to the booking as much as we are! For more complex high value bookings, a 25% deposit may be requested to secure my attendance. You will be made aware of this from the outset, and the online payment methods are really simple to use.
How far do you travel?
I'm happy to travel where ever my work takes me. Unless included in your package, a standard fuel charge is added to any booking at 55p per mile, as well as £10.80 per hour (pro-rata) for journeys longer than 1 hour.
Are you insured?
Yes! I carry all of the relevant documentation that your venue may request. This includes PAT Test Certificates, Public Liability Insurance up to the value of £2 Million, as well as Personal Professional Indemnity Insurance.
How would you define your 'style' or approach to DJ'ing?
Firstly, we're really laid back, and you'll get to learn that about me - hopefully it'll put your mind at ease. It's all about you, and I'm happy to adapt my style to suit your day and your personality. I'm not overly talkative on the microphone, and it's all about the music - nobody really cares who sang the last song or what year it came out!
Can I add things to my package at a later date?
Of course. Your initial deposit will remain valid, and secures your whole booking with me. If you choose to add any additional add-ons, I'll simply send out a new contract for you to sign with the amended information.
