What is your most memorable wedding?
There are so many, for different reasons and there have been some great ones in some wonderful barns. I particularly remember a great night in Sittingbourne where I played non-stop rock music as per the bride and groom's playlist, and one close to home where the wedding band was awful and messed up the first dance, but the disco rescued the evening. I think the best nights are really good parties with well known music. I hope it was memorable for every couple!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have a sensible timetable for the day. Cut the cake early in the evening and then have your first dance straight away. Generally there are then no other strict times to follow. This actually the second tip as #1 is book Remember This Disco.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I like to follow the wedding colour scheme with some of the disco lighting and to put the couple's names up in lights whenever possible.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to get a contract in place and take a deposit, with some brief plans for the day. I will then talk to the couple a week or so ahead of the event to finalise details and go through any music requirements. Sometimes a meeting on site is required, and I like to meet the couple before the event when performing MC duties through the day.

Every wedding party is different - there are loads but Jess Glynne's Hold My Hand is a good one.
