Weddings/civil partnerships are a landmark occasion in your relationship by their very nature and so should be fun and well organized as they will be remembered not just by the bride and groom but by family and friends for life. It follows therefore, that you need a professional wedding DJ (watch out for amateurs supplied by hotels at budget rates) who will show up (!) and smooth things along nicely, announcing the various stages such as the first dance /bouquet toss etc. with confidence and authority -oh and with a decent microphone and sound system too. lastly, as with any party with varying age groups, you need a DJ with a good catalogue of big tunes at his or her instant disposal.
All this stuff is important as it makes the difference between a stylish and punchy affair and one of those "Peter kay" type discos that you've seen on tv. ie: playing or saying the wrong stuff at the wrong time on dodgy gear - ouch!!
Here's an interesting survey from Pro Mobile Magazine:
Within a week of their reception 78% of brides say they would have made the wedding
entertainment their highest priority and 81% say this is the part they remember the most.
Almost 100% say that they would have spent more of their budget on entertainment (as opposed to the cake and dare I say the dress! Ok, forget I said that..) and in an earlier question 65% of the couples that hired a band say that if they could go back and do it again they would have chosen a good Wedding DJ. I have worked with bands many times over the years and it's quite normal to have both a band and a DJ. That is in fact how it all started with the DJ filling in the gaps between sets and eliminating the silence, keeping the atmosphere flowing all night.
If you are still unsure after talking with me and would like a meeting with me before hand, please let me know and I will work with you to set one up. You are welcome to drop in to my place in the Littlehampton suberbs or if you prefer, I can come to you/meet up somewhere.
About 80% of my business is DJ-ing wedding discos. If you book me you will be in the hands of a seasoned professional who will interact with both you and your guests in a friendly manner and do
his utmost to satisfy everyone's musical tastes throughout the evening.

Facebook March 2016: Mike Stryk you are worth evey penny you charge. Thank you for making our wedding celebration such fun. X
Booked Mike after being let down by our venue resulting in the need to book a DJ last minute for a new venue. Mike was very professional and is extremely good value for money considering the equipment included in the price. Would recommend

Mike DJ'd at our wedding in August. Mike played every song our guests requested and did a shout out each time. Everyone hit the dance floor and had a jam thanks to Mike. Thanks again!
