Weddings


no images were found

On your special day, you’ ve spent a packet on making sure everything is perfect – you wouldn’t hire an amateur photographer or caterer, why try and cut corners on a DJ who might not show up, or when he does, the music selection is terrible or his laptop crashes during the first dance? Make sure your evening goes off the way you intended by hiring DJ Wanye – somebody with proven experience in keeping a busy and happy dancefloor.

80% of the weddings and events I have covered in the last 5 years have been through word of mouth recommendations from happy clients.

I’m not your average cheesy Wedding DJ, Microphone work is kept to an absolute minimum unless requested – I let the music do the talking, and the Client(s) are asked for a list of songs/styles they definitely DON’T want to hear. There’s nothing worse than hearing a band you truly hate being played at your own wedding! – The amount of times in the past I have been asked to specifically NOT play “Agadoo type cheesy mobile disco rubbish” or specifics such as “absolutely no Celine Dion or Coldplay!” is startling! As a successful pop DJ, i know where the boundaries are, and how to keep a crowd/dancefloor happy. When your club reputation is based on being able to keep a busy dancefloor all night, you soon learn what will and won’t work at an event.

I generally cover the Nottinghamshire area for events, but am willing to travel if the event requires it.

Wedding venues covered so far have included Pears Hall (Repton) Eastwood Hall, Swinfen Hall (Lichfield), The Boat Club, The University of Nottingham, Harts, Rotunda, The Hubb, The Canalhouse, and several events in marquees on private land.

Equipment available is suitable for venues up to ~300 in capacity, but depending on the event/venue, extra equipment (larger PA, more lights, etc) can be brought in as required. All equipment has been recently PAT tested, and is covered with £10m Public Liability Insurance (PLI)

Wayne
Just got back from a fantastic honeymoon in Jamaica and wanted to thank you and let you know how you really made the evening reception with the music you played, it was spot on! I’ve never been to a wedding where so many people have just danced all evening. Lots of people commented on how good the music was so cheers, we really appreciated it. (If at all possible can you send me a playlist for the night but only if its not too much trouble!)
Thanks
Jo and Steve

Hi,
just wanted to pass on my personal thanks for your efforts the other night. Jez was extremely happy with it, and totally happy with all tracks you played, whether or not they were on his list. He was very grateful that you came up with the goods, and really appreciates the effort you went to, especially in getting the lights sorted. And it was ace that you sorted out that second microphone for us as well so that it didn’t have to go through the bass amp. Many many thanks, if you are always happy for extra work, i’ll recommend you to anyone that is on the lookout for a DJ in future. Thanks once again 🙂
Andy (brother of groom)


Wayne – literally everybody I’ve spoken to has commented on how awesome the DJ was. I’m pretty sure you’ll get a plenty more wedding jobs over the next few years from our mates!
