One of the most important aspects of a wedding reception is the all important first dance where the Bride & Groom traditionally start off the evening’s events. As your Wedding DJ, I will ensure that your first dance is perfect.
When does the Wedding First Dance take place?
From my experience, this happens after the speeches and the cake has been cut. It’s entirely up to you when you choose to do so. Part of my job is to make sure that you are ready and to make the all important announcement after which will be a rapturous round of applause! In recent times, the dance takes place immediately after the cake has been cut. This creates a natural flow into the first dance.
I will liaise with the wedding planner and photographer to ensure everyone is ready.
You may wish to perform the whole dance by yourself, or I can request that guests join you after say the first minute.
Anything else to consider for my Wedding First Dance?
Yes! If you have invited evening guests, you may wish to consider having the first dance after they have arrived.
Secondly, I would recommend having the First Dance before any evening buffet, otherwise the moment will be delayed. From my experience, the dance tends to take place between 7.30 and 9.00 but its entirely up to you!
Why not create the wow factor by having a confetti cannon explode colours of your choice (silver looks superb) as you take to the floor. It really does create the most amazing photograph and looks stunning!
Haze also creates another stunning effect on the photos.
This is entirely your choice. Just let me know a week before your wedding and leave the rest to me.

Other Special Dances
After Wedding First Dance, the Bride or Groom may wish to perform another dance such as the Bride & Father of the Bride or the Groom with his mother. As your Wedding DJ, I will be happy to talk to you to ensure everything flows perfectly.
Free Bride & Groom meeting
I offer a meeting either at the venue, your home or via Skype at no cost.
This gives you an opportunity to meet me and vice versa! I can fully discuss your plans with you and answer any questions you may have, and discuss music, lighting etc. I highly recommend taking advantage of this offer.
It’s vitally important that your Wedding DJ is involved in discussions in respect of the first dance. This ensures that you will have the perfect first dance!
