We would 100% recommend DJ Karlton!
We booked DJ Karlton for our wedding at The Ashes Barns. The DJ and Magic Mirror package was brilliant, and provided endless entertainment for our guests through the evening. The magic mirror is a great bit of kit and fitted in with the style of our venue really well. With so many props provided no two photos were the same, we've got so many weird and wonderful memories from our wedding day just from the magic mirror. DJ Karlton has been amazing from the first enquiry, he's incredibly friendly. He kept us updated in the run up to our wedding of anything he required, and provided us with all relevant documentation the venue would require. DJ Karlton did a great job on the evening, from the first song there wasn't a minute the dance floor was empty, he read the room like an expert and played to everyone's tastes. An added bonus he took plenty of pictures of our evening, capturing moments we might have missed. All of our guests have said how amazing the DJ and Magic Mirror were, and my wife and I agree if we were to do our wedding again, we wouldn't change a thing. We would 100% recommend DJ Karlton!

Brilliant Night!
We booked for our wedding at Hanbury Wedding Barn. Everyone was up dancing all night. Had the perfect mix of music that was us as well as plenty of crowd pleasers.

The DJing was absolutely brilliant.
We booked DJ Karlton and his magic mirror at our wedding at Pendrell Hall. The mirror went down an absolute storm and there were so many props! It has been amazing to go through our guestbook and see our guests having such a lovely time! And the DJing was absolutely brilliant. I think DJ Karlton had a tough crowd, and lots of people commented that they could see he was really trying his best to get people out on the dancefloor and that is exactly what we wanted! I think one of the highlights for us was from about 1030 when we had finished saying goodbyes to the early leavers and could properly get out on the floor with everyone who was left. The other highlights were obviously the Macarana and Cha Cha Slide... Karlton's organisation was just spot on all the way through from when we first contacted him. His was always quick and easy to contact, and we didn't even see them arrive and set up on the day! We would highly recommend!

You Were Amazing!
Thank you so much for DJ'ing our wedding, you were amazing! Great communication that set everything out clearly, the quality of the kit was great, and the music was exactly what we were after! The music kept people dancing all night, with a wide variety so there was something for everyone and incorporated all of the songs that we asked for. DJ Karlton was professional, organised and easy to liaise with, and just a lovely guy to have at your wedding! We particularly loved his style and how he kept the atmosphere lively but wasn't constantly shouting over the mic, a number of guests commented on how good Karlton was. We highly recommend DJ Karlton, we had a brilliant night and so did our guests!

I would highly recommend DJ Karlton to anyone who is having a wedding, I went to a good friends wedding this weekend where DJ Karlton has played, the atmosphere with the music was brilliant all different songs and the dance floor was full everybody was up on there feet. Everyone had an amazing time it was a shame it had to end.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I've loved most of them, I've got the best job in the world, getting paid to make people have a good time.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Uplifting, funky, accomplished, assured, professional,

What about your business are you most proud of?

Allowing people to have the best time of their lives.

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

Having a small dance floor creates a better atmosphere, people feel more comfortable and the party feels so much more lively. If you have 150 guests and allow for one third to be on the dance floor as an example. This equates to 7 people by 7 people is 49 so visualise a square 7 by 7. You do not need as much space as you think.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After receiving a first contact I call up the couple for a chat, send follow up information by email and arrange another chat either via video call or voice call. Bookings are contracted and firmed up when the deposit is received.

What makes a romantic first dance?

It doesn't matter whether it's fast or slow it just needs to light up the couple emotionally.

What is your number one floor-filler?

Whitney Houston - Wanna Dance With Somebody
