Isaacs Weddings

The ultimate guide to hiring your wedding DJ

All eyes may be on you for the wedding ceremony, but come the reception your guests will not only be checking out the beautiful, historic surroundings of Isaacs, they’ll be eagerly waiting to see your first dance as a married couple.
Selecting the right DJ to play at your wedding is one of the most important decisions you can make. Why?, because let’s face it, no matter how ‘wow’ the views – and at Isaacs’ we have some pretty jaw-dropping waterfront vistas – it is the DJ who is responsible for getting your guests up on their feet and dancing all night long.

Let's meet My Big Fat Wedding Disco

Gavin from My Big Fat Wedding Disco is no stranger to the dancefloor area of Isaacs top floor – in fact, as one of our trusted suppliers he’s been privy to more than a few wedding day dance-offs in the historic Isaacs setting.
We take five minutes with him to talk all things wedding disco – from the first dance to the final song of the night.
The glowing testimonials on My Big Fat Wedding Disco’s Facebook page are testament to the company’s vision in bringing your wedding plans together. They are passionate about the service it offers, music, entertainment and most importantly of all delivering a quality, memorable wedding disco. They have the knowledge, expertise, and equipment needed to make sure that your guests have an amazing time at your reception.

Best of all, for couples who don’t know what kind of playlist they want, My Big Fat Wedding Disco is on hand to help. They’ll meet with couples ahead of the big day to find out what type of music they like and dislike and then the experienced DJ will tailor-make the perfect playlist guaranteed to fill the dancefloor. Gavin also suggests: “It’s a great idea to ask your guests for their requests on your invites – then you have a ready-made playlist!” That’s certainly one way to ensure everyone leaves smiling.

The first dance and beyond

Similarly, if the first dance song choice is becoming a battleground between the engaged couple, My Big Fat Wedding Disco can help to find the perfect choice. After a chat with the couple they’ll send across 3-5 recommendations based on their personal preferences which the couple can review. Of course, there’s no requirement to use one of the recommendations but it can certainly help to bring the ideas flowing.
As well as floor-filling tunes and heartfelt first dance numbers My Big Fat Wedding Disco also offers indoor uplighting as standard with its packages. A choice of colour wash can be used inside the venue to help keep on track with the colour theme for the day. With the beautiful blank canvas space Isaacs offers, this is the perfect way to complement the rest of your décor and pull everything together.

Personalised touches can also be accommodated: couples could opt for a mix of their first dance song, end of night song or even add additional props such as ‘LOVE’ letters, willow trees or vintage props and effects.
Just as your venue can enhance the magical atmosphere of your wedding, the wedding DJ can set the tone for your celebrations. Their service goes above just playing a song, but extends to them reading the room to pick the right tune, taking requests and ensuring everyone is happy.
Being one of our trusted suppliers, our wedding coordinators will liaise directly with My Big Fat Wedding Disco and book them on your behalf. Then, we’ll hand over the reins to you, so you can start to put your wedding playlist together.
