  • "Incredible!"
    Jess on 3 November 2019

    Wow, what can we say - Ben was absolutely amaaaazing! From the moment we met with him, we knew he was for us. Ben was so reassuring and had a massive library of ideas to make sure that our wedding day was special and one of a kind! When we received the planner that Ben gives you, I was over the moon when I saw how much time and dedication goes into making sure your day is perfect; it's so organised!! On the day, we had awful weather and a huge power cut right before the ceremony but Ben was so professional and organised in communicating with the venue and our suppliers that we didn't feel worried or stressed at all as we knew we were in good hands! The music was on point with lots of awesome game music - the guests were loving the music so much they were all bopping along and asking for the names of songs all day. From start to finish, Ben was so helpful, friendly and you can just feel how passionate he is about music and making sure you have the best time through the effort he puts into making your day unique to you. Everyone we spoke to had a brilliant time and enjoyed how it reflected our personalities into the day. We couldn't have asked for anyone better, thank you so, so much for being the best DJ/wedding planner ever. We had the most magical time and it couldn't have happened without you :) thank you!!! Jess and Gideon Holdgate

  • "Great DJ!"
    Lucy on 4 August 2019

    Ben was our wedding DJ and worked directly through our amazing venue Hayne House. From our initial meeting, we got a great energy and vibe from Ben - he is very passionate about his job and the fact he got married at our venue too was a great coincidence for us and a good sign of things to come! Ben had lots of great ideas to make our wedding really special and unique - we had speech sweep stakes, Mr and Mrs (honestly can't recommend enough - was so funny!) and even a DJ battle which all our guests found super fun and different. We wanted our wedding to be really chilled and fun and Ben definitely helped us achieve that. We also had great fun filling in the entertainment planning book that he provides for all his couples. Our initial package just included Ben for the evening but we decided to have him around all day and are really thankful we did as it just helped ease some of the stress on the day! Ben kept everything running smoothly so we didn't have to worry about anything. The music was great and we had people on the dance floor, shoes off all night long! We had so much fun that we forgot the bouquet toss so just winged it right at the end when everyone was leaving. Thanks Ben for an amazing day and night! Lucy & Rich xx

Frequently Asked Questions

Repertoire:

I have a vast collection of music you can choose from. What would you like to hear?

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

I'll endeavour to go out of my way to ensure I play the music you want. For instance if you or your guests are from overseas and you want to inject some Croatian, Italian, Argentinian (insert your country here!) then I'd welcome this. Also, I frequently work with couple to put together custom song mixes and mash-ups for their evening.

Do you have your own equipment?

Of Course!

How much do your services cost?

My evening prices typically range from £450 - £750 depending on timings, location and whether your wedding day takes place in peak season or off-peak.

Type of entertainment offered:

I offer a popular all day service where I can take care of everything from the ceremony music onwards, including Master of Ceremonies service to really bring some fun and engagement to your whole day. Alternatively I can simply help you plan an unforgettable evening's entertainment. There's also a host of additional services to make your day just that little bit more fabulous; - Mood Lighting - 'Til Death Do Us Party' colour changing, light up sign (see photos) - 'Dancing on Clouds' First Dance - Confetti Cannons - Sparkler Send Off - Garden Games - Starlit Dancefloors It all starts with a meeting where every one of couples receive an invaluable planning tool - my wedding entertainment planner! It's packed with inspiration ideas, music lists and more not just for your evening but your whole day. Over a cuppa we can discuss your wedding day and the options and ideas that are a good fit for your wedding.

My evening entertainment service includes professional light and sound to set just the right atmosphere at your wedding reception. You'll also have access to your very own on-line music planning tool to enable both you and your guests to choose the soundtrack to your wedding reception. Tell me about the songs you love and the ones you hate! You'll also receive a copy of my Wedding Entertainment Planner packed with fun, unique and memorable ideas to set your evening reception apart.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Couples typically book me anything from 6 months to two years ahead of their big day. Remember, whether it's your photographer, DJ, magician or whatever, the sooner you get in touch with them the more choices you'll have. The best suppliers get booked up a long way in advance.

Is there a charge for travelling?

I'm based in Kent and whilst most of my weddings are based here, work can take me anywhere across the South-East. There may be an additional charge for work further afield.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I DJ with my business partner so there is always two of us for your big day, I am also a proud member of The Wedding Chaps, which consists of four of us Harry, iain, Paul and me.

What are the forms of payment?

Payment is normally by on-line/BACs transfer or cheque.

Experience:

My couples don't book me for my experience, they book me for theirs!, I've DJed for 10 years and it's been my full-time occupation since 2013. I've been lucky enough to DJ at some lovely weddings since I started and I never stop learning. One of the best parts of my job is sharing the wedding ideas I've picked up along the way with my couples. I genuinely want your day to be the best it can be. Through my many years experience I can help you achieve this.

What style of music do you offer?

That really depends on you and your guests. I'd encourage you to give me your 'must plays' 'play if possibles' and 'do not play!' lists. I'd also encourage your friends and family to make requests. I can then build your evening around what everyone wants to dance to and add some ideas of my own to compliment your selections.
