Amazing Photographer & Videographer
Carlo from Derbyshire Wedding Events is amazing. He made our wedding amazing. His DJ set was fantastic throughout the entire day & he got everyone on the dance floor all evening. He took some amazing photos and by far, the best thing was the video he took. Having that to watch back and relive our day was the best thing we could have purchased. He is the friendliest guy, the best DJ and an amazing photographer & videographer. Definitely a good booking!!! Leah Mason

Thank YOU Derbyshire Wedding Events
Another week, another brilliant outstanding 5* Google review from this really fun loving couple, Katie & Fraser! Many people say that not all wedding DJs are the same, I cannot agree more! Always check before you book, look out for reviews and ask previous couples. This is what makes Derbyshire Wedding Events arguably one of the top wedding service operators in the East Midlands. Derbyshire Wedding Events is your Derby DJ & Photographer that will NEVER subcontract! Derbyshire Wedding Events Fraser Hemphill *****16 hours ago Carlo captured our wedding beautifully as our videographer, and took some sublime photos that allowed us to see elements of the big day that we would've missed without him capturing them. He kept everyone entertained and dancing away till the late night with an amazing playlist that seemed everyone just loved. Always quick to respond with any help needed and truly was a big part of making our big day perfect! Thank you for being amazing Carlo, and will recommend you in a heart-beat to anyone who needs a DJ, videographer or photographer. Best Wishes From, Katie and Fraser

You were amazing! I knew from the first moment we met you last January that you were the right DJ for us!!! When I get round to it I am going to do some on line reviews for everyone who helped us out that day x We have had so many people commenting on what a lovely guy you are and that you were such a great DJ on the night x We appreciate everything you did for us that day and although I may have been a little drunk 🥴 in the evening, I will never forget it x you played all mine and Wayne’s song requests and it was just a bloody fabulous party x I’m nervous to watch the video as I have a tendency to just start crying when I think of the wedding 😂 Anyway Carlo thank you again so much x you are great 😘 Lots of love Allison and Wayne x Sent from my iPhone

-------- Original Message -------- Subject: Thank you! Date: 2018-04-30 10:59 From: Hannah South <hannahs@XXXXXX> To: Derbyshire Wedding Events <> Hi Carlo, I just wanted to say a huge thank you from Pj and I for all you did at our wedding on the 10th April. As soon as I booked you you got in touch and introduced yourself which, gave it a very personal touch. Along the way I had a few questions which, you answered and you were so helpful! You gave me different options but never pushed me to make a decision. Even after a little panic you reassured me everything would go well and it did! I have photos and an amazing video from the evening do that we will treasure forever and will always look back on with fond memories! Everyone commented on the music you played and I don't think the dance floor was empty once which, speaks for itself! I mean every single word! We really didn’t want you to leave that evening. I’ve been to a few weddings recently and hands down you were the best DJ, I’m not just saying that because we hired you but you really were! You really stick by your ethos of making it a personal experience and I think you need to be recognised for that. If there’s anywhere else I can leave a review please let me know! Thank you Carlo for making our wedding evening so memorable! I would recommend you to everyone! Kind regards, Mr and Mrs Challenger x

What is your most memorable wedding?

Every wedding is special but never as special as yours!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Quality, attentive to detail, passionate, professional.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Over five hundred weddings performed in to date. Not one complaint! Numerous outstanding reviews, far to many to publish here!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Never go for the cheapest option, there will always be somebody cheaper. Your wedding is the most important day in your lives. It's personal, it's about you. Make sure whoever you select appreciates that and makes you his / her priority!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I love witnessing the emotions during the first dance and the father & bride dance, simply priceless!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Enquiry - private chat in the studio, to include a demo - planning stage - big day performance - seeking feedback.

What is your No. 1 top tip for keeping a crowd entertained?

Read the crowd, music you like or think is best is not always the right music for the crowd. Never is it a case of one genre or type fits all. Be professional, friendly, keep smiling, appreciate the day and offer the crowd what they want.

Where is the most memorable place you have performed?

From castles, to private villas, even a private yacht, to marquees, old mansions and houses, even on farm land.

Have you had any interesting surprises at a wedding?

From very emotional tributes to lost loved ones to a surprise visit on the day from a close family member who was in the armed forces and appeared unexpectedly offering the family the most beautiful surprise on the wedding day!

What is your party trick?

Be natural, be yourself, be relaxed, be professional, keep smiling, remember you are there for the couple and the crowd.
