Spotlight Moments for your Wedding

The first dance at a wedding reception is always a moment to remember, filled with magic and emotion. However, as an experienced wedding DJ, I know there are numerous other “spotlight moments” that can emphasise the significant people in your life, typically by playing a meaningful song for them to dance to. The possibilities for creating unique wedding reception moments are as vast as your imagination, and I have compiled a list of suggestions that have proven to be highly effective in engaging the important individuals in your celebration. These personalised wedding moments not only make your loved ones feel extra special but also help break the ice and motivate even the most reserved evening guests to participate in your wedding festivities.

Cutting the Cake

A delightful tradition at wedding receptions, the cutting of the cake symbolises the couple’s first joint task as newlyweds. This charming moment brings together friends and family as they gather around to witness the couple cutting their beautifully crafted wedding cake. We’ll do a big countdown and your guests can snap photos and savour the sweet moment. A warm or acoustic song in the background is perfect here.

The First Dance

The first dance is an iconic highlight at every wedding reception. As your wedding DJ, I’ll announce when it’s time for your first dance, inviting everyone to form a circle around the dance floor as you and your partner step in for your first dance as a married couple. We can tailor this experience to your preferences, but many couples choose to have all guests join them on the dance floor halfway through their selected song.

The Parents Dance

This special moment can be tailored to various formats, such as the bride and their father, the groom and their mother, or both, with the groom’s father dancing with the bride’s mother. You can choose to have the dances individually or all together to the same song – the choice is entirely yours. Just remember, it’s a good idea to seek your parents’ approval first! These dances are less common these days, so don’t feel pressured.

The Bouquet Toss

An extra moment of fun for your wedding reception is revisiting the bride’s bouquet toss (if already taken place earlier). Invite all the single ladies (and gents if you like) to gather around as the bride tosses the bouquet. According to tradition, the lucky lady who catches it will be next to get married. Whether there’s any truth to it, the moment brings a burst of fun and anticipation for everyone!

The Hen/Stag Song

Did you and your party guests share a memorable moment during the hen or stag do that’s worthy of reliving at the wedding reception? Whether it’s a song that brings joy from a hilarious moment or fears from having too many Jägerbombs and being hand-cuffed to a midget. I can replay that song at the reception and invite the stag or hen do partygoers to the dance floor.

The Last Dance

As your wedding DJ, I know how important it is to leave your guests with a lasting impression of your special day. The last dance is the perfect opportunity to bring everyone together for a moment of unity and nostalgia. You can choose a song that reflects the love and energy of your wedding day, or I can recommend a classic tune that’s seasoned for this pinnacle moment, such as “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Articulate MC

As a confident Master of Ceremonies, I provide clear and engaging announcements and introductions in a professional style. My approach focuses on blending exceptional music, I don’t talk over and between songs.

Passion for Music

With a passionate love for music, my knowledge spans an extensive repertoire. I know which selections work best to keep all guests happy, and when to play your favourite tracks, ensuring a delightful experience for all.

Ryan was the DJ for our wedding on the 18th Feb 2023 and we honestly couldn't of asked for more. He played literally everything we asked for before the wedding and nothing was any bother on the night. Our guests had a blast and have said how good you were on the night going from one banger to another. You certainly satisfied all the dance/ trance fans! The custom edit you did for our first dance was also perfect. I only wish I could dance 😂 Thanks again and we will certainly recommend you to all our friends and family who will be having events in the north east.

Ryan was our DJ for our wedding in July and what can I say! I honestly could not have hoped for more! He arrived very early and set up all of his equipment so he was ready when everyone started to enter for the reception, he also offered me some kind words to settle my nerves before our first dance. He took care of all the announcements throughout the evening and when we entered the dance floor for the first dance he got everyone to stand up around us and cheer which was so much fun. We gave him a few suggestions of our favourite tracks to work from and he delivered perfectly to our music tastes! People were up dancing all night and were really enjoying themselves. The best thing was that everyone kept on talking about how good the DJ was, he made everyone feel so relaxed and took care of everything so professionally. I would absolutely recommend Ryan for any wedding or event and if I ever have to organise another event myself, he will be the first person I contact. Thank you so much Ryan, you made our day one that we will never ever forget!!

We booked Ryan for our wedding that was supposed to be in 2020 but it wasn't until June 2021 that we finally got married! With 3 postponements and re-arrangements due to restrictions, Ryan could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Ryan really did make us feel that he was there for us during whatever Covid threw at us, nothing was too much and he was always prompt at replying to our emails with excellent and detailed help. Ryan clearly has a passion for what he does and this really shone bright throughout his service before, during and after our wedding day. His attention to the details was impeccable and he comprehensively understood our music taste and created the most amazing DJ set we could have ever asked for! All of our guests spoke of how great the music was and how the party was exactly what they needed, it was what we needed too after a year of rearrangements! Ryan, you were brilliant! Thank you so much Ryan and we wish to see you again soon! Take Care Ellie & Rhys

Ryan was absolutely brilliant from start to finish, he did everything we asked of him and the music was amazing. We hired him last minute for our wedding party and he sorted everything so quick. I’m still now getting messages from guests complimenting his playlist/ music choice. He’s a lovely bloke and kept us up to speed with the plan and any changes that needed to happen due to timings of food/ photos. 5* would highly recommend!! Thank you Ryan. Sam & Domini.

Ryan was the best wedding DJ we could have asked for. He read the room perfectly and played great songs, has the best set up and lighting rig, and was a pleasure to work with from day 1 of booking him. My husband is Icelandic and Ryan flawlessly fit in Icelandic songs to his playlist throughout the night with absolutely no issues. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone getting married, and I wouldn't hesitate to book him for any future events we may have!

Hire Ryan to DJ your wedding! He was happy to play a playlist we pulled together (and added a few bangers we hadn't thought of throughout the night as well) and only hopped on the mic when necessary so we could all just enjoy the tunes. Plus, he was super easy to deal with and seems like a great guy. Cheers again Ryan!

From start to finish Ryan was very professional, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Our music requests where a little different than the norm and he smashed it out of the park. A DJ who understands that just turning up the volume doesn't make a good party, he always got everything just right. I'd throw another party for no other reason than just to have Ryan DJ again. Do your party a favour and book Ryan now!!!

We chose Ryan for our wedding after reading some great things online. Ryan was really easy to work with very agreeable. He played all of the tunes that we'd asked for and kept everyone happy and dancing, creating a great atmosphere for the evening of our wedding!
