CHOOSE YOUR MUSIC
We carry an extensive selection of music covering all ages and styles. We have the experience to play the right mix of music at a suitable level. As part of standard procedure, we like our brides and grooms to provide a short list of music. This should include any information about first dances etc. We will set up your online planner where you can view our music catalogue. You can select the music you would like to hear on your special day.
With an extensive music collection and are rarely caught out by not having that special tune. However, if we do not have them all will do everything in our power to obtain them for you. You are also welcome to provide any music you wish. The only caveat is that we have it in advance of the day of your wedding. We need to ensure it will work on our systems.
Our DJs always dress smartly to suit the occasion. They present themselves according to the event. Shirt and tie are normal.
PEACE OF MIND
We will send you a written contract outlining all of the details of your disco entertainment. You are dealing with a professional company and that we will not let you down.
We will absolutely fulfil our commitment to you.
Our aim is to complement your day and provide your guests with an atmosphere to enjoy your wedding celebration. With our many years of experience and professional service, we can guarantee you an excellent wedding disco.
Entertainment at weddings normally starts with the disco or maybe a wedding band. There is often a period of time after the ceremony where nothing much seems to be going on. The wedding party literally just hang about until the wedding breakfast or the reception itself. There are options to fill this often extended period of time and add a little entertainment for your guests. It is also best to keep the children occupied during important points of your day.
With so many people coming together the last thing on their mind is loud overpowering disco music! We agree and understand. Your ideas and suggestions will be used to provide the correct balance.
Some audiences like a gentle introduction after their wedding breakfast. After the speeches, cake cutting and first dances, the entertainment can start quite gently. We can build up the energy during the first hour as guests will respond better. We will always work with you to decide what is best at any particular time.
Alternatively, you may wish for a full-on wedding disco sensational party atmosphere. We can get the tempo moving early and keep it moving with your requested music and the requests of your guests.
Other services for a wedding celebration
We are often asked to provide other services for our wedding clients. These include Karaoke, Giant Games, a Wedding Quiz, Silent Disco and many more.
Ideally, Karaoke shouldn’t take up a lot of your evening. Karaoke can be a very useful addition to your wedding celebrations especially if this will get more of your guests involved.
There is already a short comment about garden games further up the page but here is a link to the page again.
Typically when our wedding clients ask about a quiz they mean the Shoe Quiz. The Shoe Quiz is very popular and can be seen in many YouTube videos.
Your DJ will have the bride and groom on chairs back to back on the dance floor. Each will have one of each of their shoes in their hands. When asked a question by the DJ they will respond by holding up a shoe.
There is a list of generic question which can be used but this gets really interesting when the bride and groom add some of their own questions.
We can also provide a wedding quiz based on our SpeedQuizzing system. Again we have many generic questions we can use but this is also enhanced with some contribution from our clients.
By now, we are all familiar with the idea of Silent Disco. Silent Disco is available at many festivals and many other places but what value can it have at a wedding?
A wedding reception is typically about 5 hours in duration. During that time, your DJ will entertain your guests with a variety of genres of music to suit all of the guests. What happens when you have a largish part of your audience which prefers a lot of R&B, dance, Old Skool or any other genre of music. Well, simply put, your DJ is in a no-win situation because although some want to focus on their genre you also have many family and guests looking for typical wedding music and cheese.
The answer is Silent Disco. With Silent Disco, your DJ can have a different genre of music on 3 different channels. Channel 1 could be typical wedding music and channels 2 & 3 could change between specific genres. That way everybody can hear what they like.
These are just a few ideas for your wedding reception available to you. We listen to you so if you would like something different, just ask!
Wedding disco or Band or both?
Some weddings have live music. We can arrange many different types of entertainment for you. We can provide, ceilidh, a ceilidh disco package, piper, pianist, string quartet and much more.
A wedding disco combined with a professional band or ceilidh band is a fantastic combination for wedding reception entertainment. We have a selection of bands of all types to call upon. Depending on availability, we can provide that extra variety to your reception. Get the relatives talking and dancing with new family members they don’t know… What a way to break the ice! Our disco ceilidh package is fantastic value.
We work closely with any other providers to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Some venues will serve a buffet right after, or in the middle of, the bands set. Premier Disco will simply go into background mode until you and your guests are ready for the memorable experience you are about to witness.
The formats above are merely standard formats we encounter every single week. If you would like to do something a bit different, get in touch we are here to listen. We will fit into any plans or ideas you may have.
Please ask about how we can spread the cost of your wedding over a number of payments. It really is simple!
