Who is Scratch DJ; DJ Destruction? Here’s a Brief Bio:

You wont find anyone much better than this guy that does, what he does.  DJ Destruction was a UK finalist in the World DMC DJ Championships.   He is credited with production on the highly acclaimed ‘Kaos’ album, released on EMI in 2001 and has worked with artists that can only be described as Hip Hop Royalty (Redman, M.O.P, Capone-n-Noreaga, Pharoahe Monch, De la Soul, Guru and LL Cool J), the latter of which went platinum in the U.S and was a Billboard number 1 in its first week. The Redman single Smash Sumthin achieved a U.K top 10 and a gold disc to boot.

Destruction has since worked on remixes and produced for Canibus, Leee John (Imagination), Pay As You Go, Elephant Man, Kidda, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Flux Pavilion to name a few.  Recently (end of 2018) you can see him feature in the White Boy Rick movie with his hip hop music knowledge and scratch skills featured on key parts of the film.

Wedding Fair 2019 Season Preparation

We are at the beginning of the wedding fair season 2019! I know how intimidating these events can be.  All those suppliers waiting to pounce on you, ready to tell you how perfect their products will be for your day.  This is all very daunting and Brides and Grooms need to go in prepared.  So I have prepped this blog post to help you make the most out of wedding fairs and extract what you need from suppliers prior to stepping foot into the gauntlet!

Plan what you want included in your day

Planning a wedding?  – if your anything like me, the list of services available leaves me dumbfounded.  Everyone is different and each couple needs to decide what they want from their day.  I recommend a brainstorm.  Forget budget at first just smash a list out of what will make your day about you.  After all, it’s your wedding and every inch of it needs to scream that it is!

Always bear in mind the season your getting married in and plan appropriately for this.  There is no point having a barbecue for winter wedding!

Prioritize

So, you have written down everything you want.  Now its time to out them in order of what is realistically doable and affordable for you.  After all, you don’t want to be paying for your wedding for the rest of your time on this earth.  If your in a position that you have enough for everything you want, that’s great! But make sure you don’t have any regrets of what you have spent your hard earned cash on.

Set a Budget

This will be a guide to what you can achieve for your day and will help keep you reined in.  It is so easy to over spend and at the same time important to have an clear idea of your wedding day dream so you can get as close to its reality without over stretching.  Remember stay grounded!

Do your own Research

Personal Recommendation, is in my opinion, the best way to find a good supplier.  It gives you re-assurance that they are competent in what they do and deliver a great service!  But on top of this, do your own research online, in wedding magazines and look at reviews.  Prepare questions you wish to ask the wedding experts.

Know the Wedding Suppliers who are Attending the Wedding Fair

Prior to going to a wedding fair, make sure you know what suppliers are attending.  You know what you want on your wedding day and have completed your research and now know who you wish to speak to.  The next step is to ask the suppliers at the wedding fairs how to achieve your goals.  Remember only attend the wedding fairs that suit your style.

Wedding Fair Action

You are now prepared to enter a wedding fair.  What is great about wedding fairs is that you will get some great ideas that supports your wedding vision, which is awesome.  Don’t rush, this is your opportunity to speak to the experts in their field and determine if they are the right supplier for your wedding day.  The temptation is to get carried away.  Take away the information and contact details that is relevant to you.

Look for the supplier who is on the same wavelength as you.  Immediately discard the tacky quintessential services and find the companies who “think outside the box”, who is fresh and inspirational.  They need to listen, gauge your personality and find your quirks that will make your day that little bit different and more importantly “yours”. … A company like Dreamwave Events for artistic, stimulating lighting and décor options.

Remember when speaking to wedding suppliers there is always room for negotiation.  But beware – don’t always go for the cheapest price.  In my experience you nearly always find there is a reason why they are cheaper.  Make sure you read the fine print and make sure there are no hidden costs and everything is included that you need.

But do you know what makes a cracking wedding (and what every wedding needs) is the best entertainment you can find.  Of course, I am biased in what I consider the best wedding entertainment available in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk (basically East Anglia!)  Read more about fantastic evening entertainment for your wedding here.

Finally…….Be Organised

A life saver for me when organising my wedding, was setting up our own wedding email.  Myself and my now husband both had access and information about our day did not get lost in translation amongst our other online commitments.  This truly helped with keeping everything separate and clear making the whole planning process far less stressful.

Another tip is to create a methodical wedding day spread sheet of services, suppliers, costs, when balances are due, details required etc.  It can all become over-bearing, especially in the couple of months leading up to your day.  You will be thankful of this.  Trust me!

Drinks Reception Entertainment and Music for your Wedding

You have just got married and can now officially change your Facebook status!… It’s now time for the your Drinks Reception.  I think most people want their Drinks Reception to be chilled and fun.  After all, t’s the first informal part of the wedding day where the wedding party can have a drink and a good natter post ceremony.  Guests can take a sip of their prosecco, enjoy their surroundings whilst chilling out to fabulous Drinks Reception Entertainment.

Drinks Reception Entertainment

How to choose the perfect Drinks Reception Entertainment to reflect your afternoon vision

What is going to keep your guest engaged whilst the wedding party are off modelling for your perfect wedding shots?  Who will be able to play the right style of music your looking for and generate the desired atmosphere?

Drinks Reception Entertainment, Hengrave Hall

Cocktail DJ for the Cocktail Hour

So, the classic option are Harpists, acoustic guitarists, jazz singers, saxophonists and string quartets.  But what if you want Drinks Reception Entertainment that’s a little bit different?  Our Cocktail DJ Service offers just that.  Have a DJ play your choice of music at suitable background level using a small, discreet and clean set up that wont distract whilst your guests mingle.  Your Dreamwave DJ can play anything you choose including Acoustic, Hed Kandi, Blues, Ibiza chilled and Jazz to name a few.  I myself like the sound and tempo of acoustic versions of popular songs.  Personally, I think the musical flexibility of the Cocktail DJ Service  is an absolute gem as it allows you to play any genre you fancy at a reasonable price.  You could even up the level further by having him perform alongside a live saxophonist!

 

See us in action on the lawn in the sun at Le Talbooth:

 

Drinks Reception Music on a Budget?

I always wish my purse had free refills! Weddings can certainly prove expensive and not every Bride and Groom can afford live entertainment for the whole day.  To me, an obvious saving can be made by putting together your own play list and plug it into either the venue’s PA system or hire one.  The disadvantage of this is that you wont have a live entertainer to captivate the Drinks Reception audience.  But this is a great option for those on a stricter monetary allocation.

Another option is to look at extending your entertainment from the Wedding Ceremony for a couple of hours.  This will most likely prove far cheaper than hiring separate musicians.

Music is not the only option……

Magicians

I have seen these at a number of weddings I have attended recently to keep the guests smiling.

Entertainment for Children

If your inviting children to your wedding, look to avoid bored little people by hiring a face painter or balloon modeller.

Lawn Games

Giant lawn games are a classic option to charm your wedding guests.

Lighting

Enhance your sought after atmosphere by adding lighting and décor.  Additional lighting is fantastic for an Evening Drinks Reception.  Options include Fairy Lighting, Lanterns, Festoon Lighting and LED Candles.

Your Wedding – First Dance Ideas

First Dance Ideas

First Dance – The Ultimate Conundrum!

Dreamwave Events has put together some of the best and most popular first dance tracks for weddings to help you decide the perfect start for your evening party.  From classic, alternative to modern there is something in this list to appeal to everyone’s musical tastes.

Your opening dance of the evening as is something you want to remember and choosing the right tune can be daunting. With millions of potential tracks to choose from, finding the perfect song to celebrate your first dance together as husband and wife can be an overwhelming task.  I am here to help

 

We understand how important your first dance is

We cater for your personal preference when is comes down to your debut performance as a couple! We find some couples have every second accounted for.  We don’t only ask which song you would like played.  We also ask the questions:

  • What time is your first dance?
  • When would you like guests to join is (leave enough time for the photographer to capture your moment!)
  • What song would you like to follow?

Alternatively, we also appreciate that some couples just don’t want the focus on them. Whatever your choice we will make sure we provide the service you envision.

 

How to follow on from your First Dance:

The song choice to follow on from your wedding days first dance can be just as important.   This could be a father/daughter dance, a dance with your close family or you may just want to raise the roof and get straight into the party!

Whichever way you wish your evening wedding party to proceed, your Dreamwave DJ will implement your requests to provide the personal service we pride ourselves on.

 Read more about our recent film shoot promoting our Dreamwave DJ Services provided in Essex, Suffolk and surrounding areas for weddings as well as both personal and corporate parties.

 

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s and crew all had a bit of fun in the warehouse a short while ago. We prepared for our new, behind the scenes promotional film.  Laughter and friendly banter was prolific whilst on the road to creating our visionary masterpiece.  Even I had the opportunity to show my budding DJ skills and gave a cracking performance on the decks; but I think I will be sticking to my desk job for at least the near future!

 

 

Spike Grimsey was on form with his exceptional camera techniques to generate artistic snapshots of the guys performing and prepping equipment.  These reflect the great place that Dreamwave Events is to work which truly echoes in the guy’s performances during our Evening DJ Service.

 

If you are looking for experienced DJ’s that emanate confidence and fun whilst maintaining competent professionalism for your Evening Party; these are your guys!

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s: Paul, Dave, Spike, Martin, George and Darren are all accomplished performers that bring the party! Our Evening Service offers their experience as well as a choice of set up options with different style booths and lighting colour to match the theme of your party.

Dreamwave DJ’s do not only offer DJ Services for the evening.
