Your perfect mix of Fun, Love and Music!
Hello and congratulations on your engagement and the great wedding that has yet to come!
My name is Tom Norridge and I am passionate about great wedding entertainment that is memorable for the RIGHT reasons!
Your wedding is a lot more than just another gig or a diary entry to me. It is an honour and privilege that is based firmly on you both as the stars of your own show. I consider myself very lucky to have an occupation that I LOVE! If you want your wedding music and entertainment to be delivered in an unobtrusive yet elegant manner, then let's talk!
Offering you both peace of mind and total satisfaction through a fantastic selection of music and over twenty years of experience. Add to that the prestige grade equipment, set up in a tidy, safe and tasteful manner that will blend in even with the most ornate of venues, without being overbearing or spoiling your wedding photos!
I am proud to operate on a totally exclusive basis with no other commitments on your big day. Please feel free to contact me for a free, no obligation consultaion today. I'll even buy the coffee!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is your starting price?
Since no two weddings are the same, prices are dependent on individual requirements. Generally, prices start at £750 inclusive of equipment and me as your exclusive DJ.
What services do you offer?
As a professional DJ, I go beyond just great music, which can include ceremony and wedding breakfast coverage. My expertise extends to hosting/MC to keep your guests informed and entertained, ensuring a seamless transistion between events. I like to be artistic with lighting too, adding atmosphere and colour to your venue both day and night.
What is included in the wedding package?
I don't like to use the word packages, because I believe your wedding is much more than a package. A superb music selection, fantastic sound system, atmospheric lighting and exclusive commtitment on the day are all included as standard.
How far in advance should I contact you?
As soon as you've set the date I'd love to hear from you. The further ahead, the more likely your date will be available. I've taken on weddings with just a few weeks notice to over a year or two away!
What style of music do you offer?
I offer a fantastic range of music covering all the major genres across the last 7 decades, including every UK number one single. My personal favourites are 70s, 80s and 90s dance, disco, po, rock and indie. As an 80s kid, this is my favourite era though!
I have been a mobile DJ since I was 18, way back in 1994. A career spanning three decades is something I'm quite proud of!
Do you have your own equipment?
I carry an extensive range of equipment, which is hand-picked to suit your venue from a fully stocked van. Professional grade, high end modern kit is used throughout ensuring superior audio quality and lighting to create atmosphere in sympathy with your venue's aesthetics.
Are you able to travel?
Absolutely! I love driving and getting around this lovely little of island of ours and visiting different venues!
Is there a charge for travelling?
This is usually included in my quoted fee. However, longer distances exceeding 2 hours driving will require an overnight stay and this is charged for accordingly.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Your wedding is my sole commitment on the day. I am exclusively YOURS!
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I usually work alone on most weddings. Occasionally, I may have a suitably appointed assistant when large amounts of equipment are involved (such as in two rooms) or venues that require a speedy setup during a tight room turnaround, or logistically challenging. Sometimes I may have a colleague working alongside as part of our continuing asessment and development. This is always cleared with you beforehand.
What is the length of time of the act?
On average, this can be up to five hours for the evening performance. All day weddings are entirely dependant on your own unique requirements.
How much time do you need to prepare for an act?
I like to allow a good 1.5-2 hours to set up beforehand, with the same time packing down aferwards. Where setting up is required during a room turnaround, this is done as speedily as possible.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge on a per event basis, subject to requirements and timeline.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours
Yes I will gladly play extra time if it is OK with the venue management and your guests are still up for it!
How do you charge for extra time?
All day weddindgs benefit from unlimited extra time (within reason). Otherwise extra time is charged at £100 per hour before midnight at £150 per hour after midnight.
What are the forms of payment?
An initial payment of approximately a third is required to secure your booking. Preferred payment methods are direct bank transfer, cheque or PayPal. Final balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding date.
What happens if you can't attend through illness?
I have never missed a booking in all my years as a DJ. However, should unforseen circumstances dicate, I have access to a large network of fellow professionals who can be called upon at the eleventh hour should the unthinkable happen! You can be assured that your wedding will not be left in silence!
Do you carry Public Liablity Insurance? Is your equipment safe?
Absolutely YES! As commonly required by most venues, I am covered by £10M of public liablity insurance. All equipment undergoes regular Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) and is thoroughly inspected before each performance. Full supporting documenation is available upon request, along with risk assesments when required.
Can we meet you before booking?
Of course you can! It is important that you feel comfortable with your wedding DJ and that we can work together. We can meet for a coffee, I can come to you, we can meet at the venue. We can Skype, we can FaceTime, we can any time!
Can you provide a microphone for our speeches?
Indeed I will provide the right microphone and ensure those beautifully scripted, proud emotive words are heard and felt by all! Better still, I will gladly introduce this special part of the day as your wedding host/MC. I'll even assist with any pre speech nerves and ensure all are heard clearly.

Tom of Crossfade will see you right for all your disco needs! and he is a perfect gent to boot!Sent on 25/10/2015
We had an incredible wedding day which Tom helped us to tailor all of our entertainment from start to finish.
We had Tom for the whole day and he was absolutely brilliant!
Starting with our ceremony and breakfast Tom set up a smaller but powerful system to play all of the music we wanted to entertain our guests as they took their seats etc.
Going on into the reception Tom effortlessly switched out all of the equipment for the full on massive Disco rig and delivered a monster disco and epic time for all.
Tom will help you tailor everything you need and has so many options to bring to your disco/day.
Everything was seamless and effortlessly smooth, a perfect host for your wedding day.
We will always recommend Tom of Crossfade! Thanks Mate!

What an Amazing DJ!
Tom was fantastic from start of finish. He met us twice before our big day, organised a marvellous glittering dance floor and ordered a bespoke disc for projecting a monogram of our initials. Tom also coordinated seamlessly with the musicians we had playing and during his sets mixed the perfect compilation of our chosen tracks and his own, which meant the dance floor was never empty! We look forward to using Tom again at our 50th Wedding Anniversary! Chris & Lucy xSent on 26/09/2015
