Your Stylish, Modern & Trusted Wedding DJ

I’m a North East wedding DJ (and UK-wide DJ) who has maintained the “Best Rated DJ in Newcastle” award for five years running. I take exceptional pride in my performances and have a passion for delivering high-quality, bespoke entertainment to all of my clients. I’m always able to read the room and perfectly mix the music accordingly to maintain a phenomenal atmosphere at every wedding reception.

I carefully plan and choreograph a DJ set just for you. I take the time to listen to your musical tastes and preferences so that I can tailor an exclusive DJ set for you and your guests. I don’t play the same songs your guests have heard a million times before. I want you to leave with a night you will never forget! I avoid the clichés and play the bangers that you know and love.

Music quality is hugely important too. It needs to be well balanced and played at the right volume for the occasion. This can only be achieved through experience and by using the highest-quality audio and lighting equipment designed specifically for weddings.

I have entertained people of all ages at any type of party for more than 10 years; I’ve DJ’s for small intimate gatherings with 15 guests and have also performed in front of 2000 people on stage. Why settle for anything less? It’s time to book a DJ who knows what they’re doing.

Spotlight Moments for your Wedding

We all anticipate the first dance at a wedding reception, it's magical. But there are many other “spotlight moments” where important people in your life can be highlighted and this is usually done by playing a special song for them to dance to. The options are as long as your imagination but I’ve included some suggestions that I have found to be particularly effective in involving the important people in your celebration. They are a great opportunity to make your loved ones feel even more special! They help break the ice and encourage even the most bashful of your evening guests to get up and involved in your wedding.

Father and Daughter Dance

Often one of the most treasured moments of any wedding reception and tear-jerker for some... but always a wonderful lasting memory. This special dance usually follows the first dance and is often alongside the mother and son dance. Choose a song with personal meaning to you both, or, it's usually accompanied by "I Loved Her First" by Heartland or "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder.

Mother and Son Dance

Not so traditional, but quickly becoming a more popular feature at weddings. It's the perfect way for the groom to show off his special mum with dance in front of their nearest and dearest. A memory that you and your mum will cherish forever. Often done alongside the father and daughter dance or on their own with "I'll Be There" by The Jackson 5 or "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.

The Bouquet Toss

Who will be the next of your friends to get married? Let's find out! You can add this extra moment of fun to the reception by recreating the bride’s bouquet toss (if already done earlier). All the ladies, "all the single ladies", gather around for the bride to toss the bouquet, one lucky lady catches it and tradition has it that she will be the next one to get married... maybe it's true, maybe it's not, who cares? It's exciting!

The First Dance

A must for every wedding. Welcome everyone to the dance floor with a magical first dance while all your loved ones look on with warm hearts. As your song starts, the dance floor is exclusively yours, the bride and groom's, with everyone joining in after the first chorus (if you like). A spectacular and memorable dance. Oh and don't worry, it's not embarrassing.

The Last Dance

The last dance is of course at the very end of your wedding reception. It is a chance to close the day on a high with everyone leaving in great spirits. Either you or I can pick a meaningful song, or, a song which will set the energy and love from throughout the day firmly into the memories of all. "Sweet Caroline" is seasoned for this pinnacle moment.

The Anniversary Dance

A fantastic way to bring more love onto the dance floor. This is a fun dance where all married couples start on the dance floor. I play a fun love song and one by one the couples leave the dance floor based on how many years they have been married. The longest-lasting couple remains and they get a spotlight dance if they so wish.

My Key Wedding DJ Attributes

I provide a comprehensive and bespoke Wedding DJ service to guarantee you will have confidence in me as your wedding DJ while relieving any potential music-related stresses you may have. It is my purpose to ensure that your wedding day is one to remember as a day of love-filled exciting experiences and that your evening wedding reception is no exception. Here are a few key aspects of how I help achieve that:

Meticulous Planning

I take the time to fully understand your likes and dislikes and how you would like your wedding day to run. I’m here to help you to create your perfect day in any way that I can help.

Your Music Choice

It’s your wedding day and your music choice is a priority. You may like to provide a full playlist, a selection of your favourite genres, or you might prefer to rely on my experience.

Presentable DJ

My service isn’t the only thing that comes tailored, I do too. I always dress according to the occasion in either a smart suit or a shirt and tie. I make sure to look the part.

Customer Service

My customer service is exceptional according to my ever-growing happy clients. I respond promptly to emails and make sure everything you need is provided for.

Quality Audio

My specialist sound system produces crystal clear audio throughout your wedding venue at a suitable volume. I only use top of the range Pioneer DJ equipment to ensure the best possible quality capable of proving for weddings up to 500 people.

Controlled Volume

I understand loud music throughout the whole day or night is not always ideal. I play music at a suitable level so your guests can still enjoy their conversations without shouting. You can let me know to turn it up or down at any point and I will do.

Articulate MC

I am a confident Master of Ceremonies while being clear and engaging on the microphone. My style is ‘less is more’ and I’m not cheesy or cringeworthy. I stick to mixing amazing music and will make key announcements and introductions as needed.

Music & Music

I love music and I am the cliché of “music is my life”. What I don’t know about music isn’t worth knowing. I know what works and what doesn’t. I know the right time to play your favourite tracks and my repertoire is extensive catering to everyone.

We booked Ryan after searching for an indie style DJ and we were so happy we did. Ryan is very easy to talk to and we were very impressed with the level of detail he went into, to help make our day so special. Our friends all commented on how good the music was. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Ryan made sure that our wedding reception was one to remember! Everything was perfect, he arrived on time, played the songs style that we agreed on, and everyone had so much fun on the dancefloor.

Ryan was such a great DJ! Working with him was so easy and hassle free. He listened to all of our requests and made sure everything was in place before our wedding. His music taste was brilliant and he knew exactly how to keep the guests dancing! We would definitely recommend Ryan!

My husband and I have recently had our wedding at The Yorkshire Wedding Barn and booked Ryan to DJ at our evening reception. From start to finish (all through the booking process also!) he was extremely professional and always replied to us in a timely manner. His services were second to none and he really did get the party started alongside our Saxophonist, Lady V Sax. His price was very reasonable compared to other DJs in the area offering the same services. We can’t fault Ryan, he was brilliant. Thank you 5*****

We couldn't ask for a better DJ for our wedding! The planning and prep before hand was exceptional and made sure our music tastes were catered for, which they absolutely were! 4 weeks later and I still have blisters on my feet from dancing all night! Ryan was exceptional and extremely professional and we cant thank you enough for such an amazing night! Anyone looking for a top class DJ, Ryan is definitely the person for the job! Thanks again for your exceptional work 😊

We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! Ryan was awesome and played amazing music all night! Not only is he an amazing DJ he also kept our secret wedding a secret 🤐 Ryan was meticulous and thorough in the planning of the music and made sure we had music styles to suit our likes and dislikes! We went for the wedding package plus an hour which was extremely good value for money and even more so getting a DJ to play makina at our wedding! The set up and running was smooth and professional and a must for anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding. We can’t thank you enough Mr & Mrs King

When choosing a DJ for our wedding, we were adamant we needed someone who not only could make the masses happy with generic wedding bangers, but also understood how to weave in our taste for alternative music (pop punk, emo, rock) and Ryan absolutely delivered. The dance floor was never empty and we're still getting compliments on the songs that were played. He listened to all our wants and needs, as well as the black list of songs and he was fully understanding of it all. We loved the uplighting we had as an additional extra, and found it great we could add this on last minute when we found a little extra money in the budget. If we ever needed a DJ again, we would immediately consider Ryan and would certainly recommend him.

I was let down by my previous DJ under a dark cloud and was left with short notice to find a dj for my wedding. Ryan stepped in for me with just two days notice. He was professional, on time, and provided an awesome service. My guests had an absolute ball and he was flawless considering the short notice he was given. I honestly could not recommend Ryan more! He was just incredible and literally saved the evening of my wedding! Nothing was too much for him and I would 100% go to him again if the occasion comes up! If you need a Dj he is your man! Don’t go anywhere else!
