The Wedding DJ of the Year 2015/16
This week I was honoured to discover I have been awarded The Wedding DJ of the Year in the London & the South-East region in The Wedding Industry Awards.
There was fierce competition and the shortlist consisted of 16 top quality DJs, many of whom are very good friends of mine.
After each wedding that I performed at between October 2014 and October 2015, the couple received an email requesting that they consider voting on my services. They were asked a series of questions and had to give a score out of 10 for each question and then leave comments on my performance and service.
The questions asked are stated below and the image also shows my average scores over the previous 3 years (although I have not yet received my scores for this year). When I meet with couples to discuss their wedding I always show these results because as well as demonstrating consistency, more importantly it is showing you that these are the standards that I also set for myself and strive to beat for your wedding.
If I fail to live up these standards then my average scores will plummet, so you could say that this competition is another way of keeping me on my toes.
The UK Final
The national final will take place at The Cafe Paris in London on January 14, 2016. The winners from categories such as best photographer, best florist and best wedding venue from all around Great Britain will attend to find out the UK winner for each of the categories.

It is an event that I am very much looking forward to attending as it will give me the opportunity to meet some superbly creative, hard working and most dedicated people in the wedding industry.
There are 25 categories in all which are:
- Menswear Supplier
- Musical Act (Solo, Duo, String Quartet or singing waiters)
- Planner (Independent)
- Special Touch
- Transport Supplier
- Venue (Countryside)
- Venue (Town or City)

In the meantime I have some spectacular winter weddings to look forward to over the next few weeks working with some fabulous couples in amazing venues.
