Beaulieu Hotel Wedding DJ - John & Kerry's First Dance

Please Note – After almost 40 years as a DJ I have decided to hang up my headphones after my last wedding in August 2024. I have performed at over 4000 weddings, Parties and Modern Jive nights and have had the most amazing time with lots of incredible memories.
I have met lots of lovely people and some real characters along this amazing journey from bride and grooms, customers, guests and fellow DJs. I have created memories that I will cherish forever and am very proud in playing my part in so many unforgettable weddings and parties. There will always be music in my life as I cue up the next chapter, press play and enjoy life!

I am a highly recommended DJ with a premium quality disco who has performed at more than 1000 amazing weddings. I will be able to provide the exact look or package that you want for your wedding… you may choose just an evening disco from a selection of my stylish new modern shows or decide to have one of my very popular “All Day Wedding Packages” which makes the whole day run smoothly. Whatever you decide I will work with you to make sure that your wedding is truly Amazing!

The All Day Wedding Package

The All Day Wedding Package is a popular option which makes your whole day run smoothly and your evening reception room stunning.

You have music throughout the day for your drinks reception and  your wedding breakfast,  a microphone for the speeches, a DJ to make important announcements, uplighting to match your colour scheme to make your reception look beautiful in the evening and the “Platinum Show” for a brilliant evening disco for up to 5 hours.
• Uplighting the evening reception room to match your colour scheme.
Uplighters are set up in your evening reception room to match your colour scheme. They are set to your colours for your first dance and then flash in time to the music when the dancing starts.

• Background music for a drinks reception played through a battery powered speaker which can be used in the gardens during your photographs.

• A Grand Entrance to music of your choice to the wedding breakfast to lots of cheering from your family and friends

• Background music played during your wedding breakfast  – your personal soundtrack to create the perfect atmosphere

• Any special announcements during the day. I make important announcements on a discrete sound system in your wedding breakfast room during the day. It can be used to give you a grand entrance into the room to music for your wedding breakfast, introducing the speeches and making special announcements like cutting the cake.

• A radio microphone for the speeches to ensure that everybody can hear them, even at the back of the room.

• The high quality “Platinum Show” for a brilliant evening disco for up to 5 hours..

• A planning meeting to make sure everything is organised from the music, timings and special moments throughout the day to the colour of the lighting.
• Ongoing email support to answer any questions for peace of mind.

You can upgrade to the “Premium All Day Wedding Package” which includes everything in the Wedding Package but upgrades the disco from the “Platinum Show” to the personalised  impressive “Wedding Show” disco.
The Premium All Day Wedding package includes:
All of the above with an upgrade to the “Wedding Show” disco with more lighting, and special personalised wedding design touches.

This is a more  personalised evening disco especially designed for a wedding with Love Heart gobos and your names projected onto the dancefloor with a custom designed Monogram, a unique custom “Love Letter” DJ booth lit to your wedding colours, and a backdrop of 4 uplighters programmed to your colour scheme (as pictured below)

Emma & Tom’s Wedding – 7th August 2015 – The Beaulieu Hotel

Here is my perspective of Emma & Toms wedding at the Beaulieu Hotel and shows what difference hiring a quality DJ can make for your big day.
I had a meeting with Emma at the hotel where we went through everything in detail, from the timings and the music to special moments happening in the evening.
Emma sent me a list of music that they wanted for the day split into music for the ceremony and music for the evening reception. I organised it into the best playable order…tracks that were not so good for dancing for arrival and the buffet and the big dance and party tracks for the peak times. I downloaded any of the tracks that I did not have from itunes.
Before the day itself I programmed the uplighting to complement their wedding colours.
The Big Day
It’s a beautiful day and I drive to the venue early. I arrive at the venue and set up a discrete sound system in the corner ready for the ceremony in the Beaulieu Suite.
The Ceremony
Emma had selected piano versions of modern songs for gentle background music while people were arriving.
I then played the “Turning Page” instrumental from Twilight for the processional at the right volume to give this very special moment impact. Emma looked beautiful in her stunning dress!
Emma & Tom have a lovely ceremony and a very happy recessional to the sounds of Michael Buble’s “All I Do Is Dream Of You” to big cheers as they walk out as husband and wife!
The Champagne Reception
It was a beautiful day so the champagne reception was being held in the gardens. I put a battery powered speaker outside with an ipod for a great soundtrack while the photographs were being taken which created the perfect atmosphere.
The Wedding Breakfast
Peter and the staff did an amazing job transforming the Beaulieu Suite into a stunning wedding breakfast room in record time.
Once all of the guests were seated I introduced Emma & Tom into the room for a grand entrance to Bruno Mars, “Marry You”. I played background music during the wedding breakfast which created a nice atmosphere.
After the lovely wedding breakfast I introduced the speeches and provided my radio microphone so that everybody could hear them.
The First Dance
I gave a big introduction to Mr & Mrs Caplin for the first dance…there was lots of cheering from family and friends as Emma & Tom took to the floor to Kodaline’s “The One” for a very special emotional moment. The uplighting was set to complement their colour scheme and I projected a personalised laser message on the wall over their heads behind them. The lighting made a great backdrop for the photos.
The Big Party
It was then non stop dancing until midnight… I mixed up Emma & Tom’s requests with other big tracks to keep a full dancefloor and party atmosphere. There were lots of charts early on with some 90’s girl and boy band, a few cheesy requests and some big singalong anthems which raised the roof.
It was a great party that also included a memorable dance off. Emma and Tom were delighted with the whole day and guests were coming up to me at the end saying how much they enjoyed it. What a brilliant day!

Emma & Tom – The Beaulieu Hotel – August 2015

We wanted to thank you for such an amazing day! Everyone I have spoken to has said how amazing the disco was.

Our whole experience with you from start to finish has been personal and tailored to what we as a couple love. You didn’t just turn up and play some songs which is what I was worried about when looking for a DJ! You took the time to get to know us, listened to what we wanted and gave us advice from your experience.

The whole day went perfectly, the lighting looked amazing, the music during the ceremony and the afternoon reception set a beautiful background, and I just didn’t have to worry about it. Followed by an amazing evening of which I didn’t want to leave the dance floor.

I have had nothing but positive comments from everyone and I am so glad I found you! I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know.

Thank you so much again for being a part of our special day.

Best wishes
Emma, Tom, and little Freddie ?

John & Kerry’s Review

“We were so pleased that we had Martin as DJ for our Wedding evening celebration.
From our initial meeting we knew that we were in the hands of a true professional who not only knew his music but his experience & attention to detail would ensure perfection.”

“His sound equipment & lighting was excellent – this was all set up prior to guests arriving. The coloured themed uplighters with our names projected onto the dancefloor really enhanced the venue to create the expectation of a special evening.”

“At weddings it takes a certain skill to have a full dance floor all night & Martin mixed our music choices brilliantly with his experience of floor fillers to achieve this. He even did a ‘Kiddies Disco’ (at our request) which worked well & the traditional leaving arch at the end of the night brought a fantastic finale.”

“THANK YOU Martin for making our wedding celebration into a real dance party – we have had so many good comments from our friends & family. They loved the video that you took which showed what a great time we had.
Hopefully we will get to go to another of your events soon – we will certainly recommend you.”
