Whether you are getting married in a Brisbane venue, a barn wedding in the country, or a resort ceremony and reception on the beach or in the Mountains, one thing is certain… you are going to need a talented DJ to bring it all together. Mixing skills and song selection are a huge part, as well as knowing how to inform and entertain you and your guests. But like so many things in life, experience is everything, and wedding DJ’s are no exception.
In many situations, your DJ will be in charge of setting up and running microphones for your ceremony; a knowledge of acoustics and frequency adjustments are fundamental. In addition, they may also be playing the music for your wedding. Smooth, timely transitions are key, which starts with preparation. Knowing the right questions to ask the couple, the officiant, and the coordinator could be the difference between a flawless ceremony and an unwanted distraction.
Your DJ is not just in charge of the dance floor, they are essentially the narrator of your reception, keeping your guests “in the loop” of what is happening during the course of the event. A DJ who has worked weddings for years will come across as natural and confident, whether it’s handling your introductions, first dance, or cake cutting. Also, understanding the needs of the other vendors is important. We’ve heard countless stories of DJ’s who didn’t check in with the photographer before a bouquet toss or other event and the moment is lost forever.
